Highly Recommend for those looking for a serious TTC

"If you are looking for a TTC in classic Ashtanga this should be your choice. The teachers are the best you can find and very inspiring. It is an intense course but so much fun and will make you grow in all aspects of your life. I highly recommend this school for those looking for a serious TTC."

Inspired Me

"I did a 100-hour TTC, and loved the experience. The teachers have deep knowledge and were generous to share it with me. I really enjoyed the quality of the course, it improved my understanding of yoga and inspired me to go deeper in my practice. I’d be happy to go there again both for the TTC and for asana practice as well!"
