(1) When it comes to Yoga, cost should not be such a big consideration. The real consideration should be, whether you are getting the correct knowledge of Yoga presented in a simple and practical way.
It is too common in the modern days to find Yoga training offered by those who have half knowledge or quarter knowledge on Yoga.
For example, they may teach you as if Yoga means Yoga poses. Even if they mention that there are many aspects, they don’t teach you in a way that you REALLY understand that ALL aspects are important in Yoga.
The reason is clear. They DON’T practice all aspects of Yoga, and they don’t have much knowledge.
Another example is, some trainers may teach you that Yoga has nothing to do with India. That is incorrect. If you cut off India from Yoga, then all that remains is mere fitness.
Rather than teach Yoga the way it is, as a science, they are bringing in their personal likes and dislikes and interpreting Yoga as they feel like.
So learning from such programs may work out cheaper financially, but may cost you heavily in terms of knowledge.
To understand Yoga in any other way than its original is negative Karma (negative action).
Most of the teacher-trainers ARE NOT from India. You may wonder if that REALLY MATTERS. If you are taught Yoga as fitness it does not matter. But if you are taught Yoga as a way of life of which poses form a part only, then it makes ALL the difference.
There are other reasons too:
(2) Other training programs may be purely in-person. This training program is a combination of digital, online and in-person, with meals and stay covered.
(3) We have a strict assignment policy. We take the time to go over your assignments and give feedback and corrections as required.
(4) We invest a LOT of time in ensuring that you understand, practice and teach Yoga correctly.
If quality matters to you, then join us and learn Yoga in its authentic, pristine and purest form. It is good Karma (good action) to preserve and pass on Yoga correctly.
If frugality matters to you, then there are many other Yoga-Teacher training programs out there.
