Why train with us?

There are cheaper courses out there!
Yes you will get what you pay for, the question is how much are you willing to invest in your training, own self development and depth and quality of your teacher training?

We have a lot of teacher training experience which has lead us to improve our courses year after year. This year (2021) we have ran over 30 YTT courses and helped change the lives of many for the better which you can read from student reviews on facebook and google.
What is so special about these teachers?
The course will be lead by Yogachariya Jnandev Giri and Yogacharini Deepika Giri who are senior teachers of the Gitananda Yoga Tradition. Please note worldwide there are only around 30 senior teachers of this tradition. The Gitananda lineage is one of the few authentic Indian yoga traditions which remains an intact living tradition.
Jnandev, from India is also trained to Msc level in Yoga and meditation through the Jain tradition and also lived for some time with Nath Saddhus in India. Jnandev is able to read and write Sanskrit. All these qualities are a rare find in the western part of the world!
Deepika and Jnandev founded the Yoga Satsanga Ashram in West Wales in 2009 where they have since been running yoga classes for the local community, yoga courses for children’s yoga, pregnancy yoga, teacher training, 200hours, 300hours and 500 hours advanced levels. More recently they have embarked on running a 200hrs yoga therapy CPD with Dr Ananda Bhavanani (who is the son of Swami Gitananda).
In short both Deepika and Jnandev are very experienced yoga trainers and both started their own yoga practice in their teenage years.
