About Gurukul

Gurukul was conceived to fill the void that exists between the demand for quality yoga teachers owing to its newly gained popularity, and the lack of quality teachers.a Thereof, we believe that quality breeds quality, and we impart only the most legitimate, true to the scriptures training that exists in India.

The aim of Gurukul is to spread the authentic and holistic yogic wisdom, for good health, well being, growth and self discovery of the individuals.We strive to transform enthusiastic yoga students and tomorrow’s aspiring yoga teachers into great, honest and skilful yoga Siromanis, to help them turn their passion into becoming peace messengers and to bring yoga to a diverse and growing community of yoga students.

We are dedicated to delivering only quality yoga teachers training and in order to meet this goal we have come together as a team. The variety of background that we come from and prior life experiences that each one of us come with, allows us to guide our students in their learning journey effectively. We find strength in the diversity each one of the team members brings through their own unique expertise combining Indian wisdom and modern scientific knowledge to support students live and experience yoga in their own personal way.
