HOW DOES THE TRAINING WORK?
Amid the challenges brought about by the pandemic, we discovered a new and remarkable way to experience our training through the online platform. What started as an alternative has now become a source of inspiration and fulfillment for many. It has become clear that our virtual offering is just as valuable as our traditional in-studio option.
Different paths lead us to the same destination, and that's what we celebrate with our online platform.
For some, being physically present in a shared space provides a sense of community and connection that's irreplaceable. For others, the digital realm opens doors to aspirations and passions that may have otherwise remained on hold.
The heart of our training remains consistent, whether you're in a physical studio or exploring from your own space. The content, the guidance, the support—it's all there, mirroring the quality of our in-studio experience.
The key distinction lies in the flexibility and autonomy it offers.
In the world of online learning, the journey is more self-directed. The recorded materials become your companions, allowing you to dive into them at a pace that aligns with your individual rhythm.
This approach resonates differently with each participant, and that's the beauty of it. Some of our students thrive within this structure, seamlessly weaving the coursework into their daily lives and progressing steadily towards graduation. Others, recognizing the depth of knowledge and self-discovery we offer, opt to extend their journey beyond our scheduled sessions, taking their time to absorb every facet of the training.
Our commitment to your growth remains unwavering, whether you're progressing quickly through the content or taking a more deliberate and introspective path. The destination is the same—the transformation, the learning, the empowerment. It's about embracing the choice that suits you best and thriving in that space.

Upon enrolling in our training program, you'll gain exclusive access to our online platform—a hub of knowledge, growth, and transformation. Within its virtual walls, you'll find a wealth of enriching lectures and engaging assessments, each unlocking a gateway to further insights.
Your journey is entirely your own, and this platform respects that autonomy. Progress at your pace, immersing yourself in the knowledge that resonates most with you. While you explore the materials, a select number of sessions will sync with our live weekly Zoom meetings. These synchronous gatherings provide an invaluable opportunity to deepen your understanding through interactive discussions and questions. Every lecture watched unveils a landscape of possibilities for inquiry, and these possibilities flourish during our live sessions. As you engage with the content, queries arise, perspectives shift, and you're invited to delve even further as we explore topics collaboratively.
Flexibility is at the heart of this experience. Sessions you've missed are not lost forever—every gathering is meticulously recorded, allowing you to revisit or catch up on content whenever it aligns with your schedule. Your journey extends beyond the training itself.
Certain sessions remain accessible, even months after your graduation, offering you ongoing growth and reflection.
Our community comes together each Wednesday evening from 18:00 to 20:00 (via Zoom).
These are moments of immersive experience, when theory becomes practice. Together, we engage in invigorating asana sessions, explore pranayama techniques, and hone teaching skills. Constructive feedback flows freely, nurturing your growth as both a practitioner and a potential instructor.
We recognize life's demands, and that's why our platform accommodates breaks for integration. If you're curious about the schedule of our meetings and breaks, simply follow the link below for a full list of dates. As you embark on this journey, remember that it's your unique path—a voyage of self-discovery and empowerment. Our online platform is the vessel, ready to accompany you every step of the way.
