How Exactly Do We Serve the People who Approach us?

If you do, then below you can read in what capacity you would work with us and how exactly we serve you under each category ….

1. If You Want to Start Your Yoga-Practice and Transform Your Life:  

We can call you the “Authentic Yoga-Practice” Starter. Most training available elsewhere in the name of “Yoga” is inauthentic, for you may incorrectly begin to think that there are many styles of Yoga-Science.

This is even if you are just a beginner. If you have no prior experience, it is even better because you have not filled your mind with incorrect understanding of the practice.

If you are looking to restart your practice and develop a confident personal Yoga-practice, know that we can help.

We help current Yoga-teachers and spiritual teachers avoid negative action and negative result in their teaching which may be happening unaware to them because of the inauthentic way of teaching and using Samskrtam (Sanskrit).  Since the word “Karma” means action, we may also call negative action as “Negative Karma”.
