Tantra is an all-accepting and life-positive approach to spirituality. It harnesses creative and aesthetical dimensions of our being to raise higher level of consciousness.

Dr Manoj Pant

Dehradun, India

I was looking for basic course on yoga last year while holidaying in northern India. From a common friend, I came to know about SYF. I went through 100 hour yoga teacher training course in SYF centre in November 2018. Teachers of SYF are very qualified and experienced. It gave me an opportunity to hone my skill in practical & theoretical knowledge of basic yoga. In shorter period, I went through a deep insight of yogic art of knowledge.
