India, the ancient birthplace of yoga, has been a well travelled and much loved place by people from all over world - and is today well known for its excellent yoga teacher training courses. Many of us have flocked to India to learn and master the wonderful, life-transforming yogic and spiritual practices and to find new meaning and wisdom to guide us on our life’s journey. What could be a better place for intense yoga practice than India, the land of colourful contrast, a land vast in culture, inhabiting an astounding number of philosophical geniuses, sages and great masters. For our yoga teacher training in India we have chosen a small village, in the Himalayas, in Kullu Valley, also called the valley of gods. It is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the practice of yoga and meditation and to come to know yourself more deeply. We are offering a comprehensive and well-rounded curriculum to support you in becoming a great teacher.
What our students say about the course:
"The 200-hours YTT course goes well beyond physical asanas with very experienced and sincere teachers providing a comprehensive lifetime experience in the majestic Himalayan mountains which have always attracted true Yogi/nis."
Dr. David Haberlah, Brisbane - Australia
"Studying with Ganga has been an enriching experience of inner growth. It has been beautiful and charming, with all the right challenges, which helped me to deepen my self-awareness and initiate transformation. The program gave me the opportunity to live the classical yoga, disciplined and profound at the same time. I am grateful to have received so much knowledge which provided me a holistic understanding of yoga and to have connected with the ultimate essence of it as a spiritual science. Now I feel that I have a solid base to continue in this lifelong path of yoga. The village, the local people and the mountains of Himalayas rounded the experience off as the most authentic one I could have had as my first yoga teacher training. Thank you Ganga for your complete dedication to yoga and to all of us."

Yoga Teacher Training in Croatia
If you are unable to travel all the way to India we can offer you a yoga teacher training course closer to home. A beautiful island in the Adriatic Sea off the Croatian coast is the other choice for a great teacher training course. The Losinj-Cres Archipelago is famous for its mild, asthma-curing climate, rich flora and dolphin sightings. The island Losinj boasts of breathtaking natural beauty and besides yoga, offers lots of ways to spend your time, swimming in the ‘azure’ waters, snorkelling, taking walks in the magical countryside on elaborate footpaths strewn across the island and other inspiring activities. The yoga teacher training in Croatia is perfect for people who long for the ultimate healing and uplifting experience while developing their yoga teaching skills.
What students say about the course in Croatia:
"This course is not just a teachers training course... It is an inspired journey with every moment meticulously considered and planned, conducted with unwavering patience and love. Always love. Living and learning with Ganga in a small group (as students did in the ancient Gurukula system) provided the perfect opportunity to receive personal guidance and advice with regards to asana practice, meditation and philosophy. I leave this course not only confident to instruct an asana class, but with a firm foundation on which to grow spiritually and to share this newly acquired knowledge with all I meet." ... With so much love and utmost respect Jean Dollery, South Africa
I thank our teacher Ganga with all my heart for sharing this path of awakening with us, in her uniquely personal approach: disciplined, all-embracing and loving. How exciting to practice yoga in these wonderful surroundings, in this well preserved nature! We had the perfect way to submerge ourselves into the spiritual work. Colours of the sea you hardly get to see anywhere else. Pure Water, pure air and the colours of all the beautiful flowers and trees around us. It suffused me with joy and peace. Challenging, profoundly enjoyable - both at one go. I especially loved the morning practise on the terrace of our house. But also the evening practice, the theory classes, the chanting and kirtan. And even our conversations about things and life, swimming in this beautiful sea and the nice tasty food... I came back as a more loving person. With more love for life and all its aspects. I feel that I have now the tools to go on finding bliss. I'm in peace. "

Spiritual life coaching is a relatively new discipline.
Being ‘spiritual’ is the act of increasing your awareness about who you really are in the most profound way, with the intention of connecting with Your True Self.
How does spiritual coaching work?
We work with you to bring greater clarity, awareness and understanding to both you as an individual and your current life situation, and guide you from that new space of awareness so you can develop your own goals in tune with your deeper purpose. As a result, your goals will reflect your higher values, will be deeply meaningful, and achieving them will cause a profound life change, true happiness and fulfilment!
