Introduction

The resort sits amongst the palm trees on the backwaters of Goa and is just a short walk from nearby Patnem Beach. With an abundance of hammocks scattered throughout the resort, away from the hustle and bustle of the beach, it is the perfect study environment. This Yoga TTC is a residential course with accommodation, breakfast and lunch included. Students are encouraged to dine nearby to sample some of Goan’s finest cuisine in one of the many beach restaurants. Sunset sodas are a must after full day of study.

This course is ideal for you if you would like to take your first steps to becoming a Yoga Teacher. It is essential that applicants are already yoga practitioners and are (at least a little) familiar with Ashtanga Yoga. Or, it can simply offer the opportunity to develop your yoga practice alongside a deeper understanding of Ashtanga Yoga ad Ayurveda.

Students should be prepared to be disciplined in terms of his or her studies, accepting in terms of practice and humble as a student.
