I teach in a school for 10 year olds, once a week, and 1h Ashtanga vinyasa yoga for adults once a week. For me it’s a continuation of my TTC… I continue my journey, my goal is to be a good teacher, a good yogini…
I think a lot about everyone in the different yoga studios, students, friends, teachers and Master. You all inspire me. When I teach, I feel like as I taught in the Koramangala and Indiranagar studio! Gratitude for everything I learnt from teachers, students, practices, philosophy and experiences. All the best for you and for all the yogis! Hari OM.
If someone wants to know what yoga has to offer or can do to ones mind and body, a1000yoga should be ones choice. The principle followed is “personal practice”. You can only teach/share what you experience and the only way possible is through practice. Also the focus on “prana” energy being able to flow while being in a posture is the only way you can experience meditation while you flow from one posture to next. This was taught by making us experience the importance of “sthiram sukham asanam “. Thank you! I owe my learning, my success to a1000yoga.
My training in a1000yoga has been one of the most revealing experiences in my life, the philosophy and training of the center was 100% in tune with me. I feel blesed to haver learn this TTC with them, looking forward to complete my education with them in the future.

The teachers were very kind and knowledgable. The school was the most hygienic place to learn yoga in India as far as I know.
I really love a100yoga style and trainers they really help you to get into the modern yoga philosophy.

The TTC programs offered by a1000yoga (RYT 200, RYT 500 and other yoga workshops) are simply best-in-class. The quality of instruction and the depth of experience of all master teachers here is incomparable and does not fail to touch you deep. There is remarkable difference between TTC programs offered here vis-a-vis what is offered anywhere else, because of the rigor of practice, the comprehensive coverage of curriculum and the unbeatable environment that truly inspires you to follow the path of Yoga even after you officially ‘complete the course’. I highly recommend a1000yoga to anyone who is looking for real yoga-education besides an authentic certification in a professional and culturally-neutral but sensitive environment! A first step into their studio will bring the essence of what I am saying, alive for you! In my experience of being to many YOGA studios in USA as well as India, there is nothing like a1000yoga! Never miss a chance to experience them!.
