Yoga Teacher Training at Vishuddhi Yoga
We welcome you to this temple of yoga, Yoga Teacher Training at Vishuddhi Yoga. Carefully nurtured and developed after years of diligence by our founder Shri Mahinder Prasad. For us at Vishuddi Yoga Teacher Training, we don’t only welcome you as yoga students, but as beings of this infinite cosmic family, working towards the path of self-realization. At Vishuddhi, Yoga Teacher Training, we don’t treat yoga as an exercise, but as a science to understand the inner engineering of ourselves. In the 21st century, we see that the path of yoga has become unanimous with the term exercise. People see it as a sport and worthy only as a fitness regime. We strongly disapprove of this and our Yoga Teacher Training programs propagate yoga in its true essence, with focus on all the 8 limbs of yoga; namely Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayam, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi. As explained by Maharishi (the great sage) Patanjali and the path mentioned in other ancient texts. We sincerely hope your stay at Vishuddhi Yoga Teacher Training, will imbibe the true yogic essence within you. And that where ever in the world you go, you will spread the light of yoga.
