The training is based on the 8-fold path of yoga. The first 6 limbs are integrated in the program. Three schools of philosophy are integrated in this program: Yoga, Samkhya & Vedanta

Practices like, asana, pranayama (kriyas), mantras, meditation, intro to chakra’s, intro to ayurveda principles, basic anatomy, philosophy (bhagavad gita & yoga sutra’s) are all applied to personal development.
