At Avana Yoga we aim to give you the tools, via the best yoga teacher training in India to help you achieve a joyful state of existence, where your mind is in control, no matter what the external factors or influences in your life may be.
Yoga is primarily Samadhi which is a higher state of concentration, a mind that is perfect in stillness, concentration and focus. The practical purpose of classical yoga practices, such as asan (physical exercise), pranayam (breathing exercise) and meditation are to achieve physical, mental and emotional balance and perhaps aid the practitioner attain spiritual realisation.
In a modern day society where we wanted to become a yoga instructor. Where we all are working hard chasing our dreams and goals. Where we think these dreams and goals will make us happy. Where on achieving these dreams and goals we realise we are still not truly happy, that we must work towards the next goal and maybe that will give us the happiness we are looking for?
