The 21-week Teacher Training, devised by Sadhguru is an opportunity for one to receive teacher training in classical Hatha Yoga. Upon completion of training, students are qualified to establish their own studio or teach private Hatha Yoga lessons. The program is an extensive exploration into the full depth and magnitude of Hatha Yoga and revives various dimensions of this ancient science which are largely absent in the world today. Far from being a training regimen that presents yoga as just an exercise form, this unique program brings forth the original purpose of yoga: to help one experience the fundamental nature of the existence.
