Our specialised Yoga & Traditional Tantra teacher training course that we have offered for the past seven years is available online starting 16th October. 

This Online TTC is presently being offered to a group that started together in July, and the participants have already been enriched with over 70% live classes with direct support and personal contact with the lead trainer Radasi. This amazing and optional self-paced program can be adapted to suit whatever is your present life circumstance.

Whether you are working full time, are pregnant, or even a full-time parent, this program can work for you. We know, because it is we are already supporting people — with many backgrounds, from all around the globe — in deepening in their Yoga and becoming teachers.

In the coming months we are offering the opportunity to finish the whole training online, to those who are confident that they can do this. For most people to emerge as a confident yoga instructor, it is essential at some point to be in person with your teachers to have that direct feedback and group support. That is why we have created the option to join us in retreat for 1 week next year. This will be an opportunity to integrate everything you have learnt and bring it together with direct practice alongside your teachers. 

The main core of our training takes place between:
