Summer 200 hr Purna Yoga Teacher Training

Becoming a yoga teacher is a big investment, so be sure to invest in courses taught by experts, not just yoga teachers. Aadil has been studying yoga for over 40 years; he studied with BKS Iyengar since the age of 7, was teaching by age 15, traveling internationally at 18, and has degrees in mathematics, physics and law. He has been training teachers for over 30 years. Savitri developed her own meditation techniques, healed herself from serious illnesses and multiple life tragedies and has been teaching for over 25 years. Together they partner with their most senior teacher-trainers, trained by them personally, to share a spectacular life-changing experience.

Aadil Palkhivala and Savitri are personally involved in this course.

Purna Yoga College is an elite yoga school offering 200 hour, 500 hour and 2,000 hour yoga teacher trainings. In Sanskrit purna means complete and yoga means unity. Our college provides a complete unifying approach to the integrity of yoga, including asana, nutrition and anatomy as well as Savitri’s Heartfull Meditation™, lifestyle and heart-based philosophy.

Aadil and Savitri founded Purna Yoga College with one initial purpose: to create the best-trained yoga teachers anywhere. They spent a lifetime putting together a complete system that lets you truly live yoga, so you can bring out your inner intuition and wisdom.
