Why are you so strict about this course?

I want to keep this teaching pure and original. I want highest quality of teacher for teaching Sapta Yoga™ and who are seriously devoted to spread Sapta Yoga™. I do not want "arm chair Yogi or Yogini".


I have attended teacher training in Nepal / India with you in the past. Will I be qualified to say I am Sapta Yoga™ teacher and can I open Sapta Yoga™ International Center in my country?

No. You must attend this special course to qualify for claiming as a certified Sapta Yoga™ teacher. To open Sapta Yoga™ International Center in your area or country, you must get a written permission to use the name Sapta Yoga™ International and must sign a legal contract paper.


Do I need to go to another teacher to learn more different technique?

It is all up to you. Do you want to spend more money and time to learn another technique? Do you want more confusion with many techniques in your head? Very few people can practice too many techniques at a time or over the years. The great Indian Master Ramakrishna said, "Too many learning makes too much confusion. Better learn one and be master of it". When you are getting all the training for Sapta Yoga™ International Teacher Training Course. This course will give you a solid practice for rest of your life and you will never need a teacher!! But you must remember "regular practice makes you the perfect teacher".


In Sapta Yoga™ do student use any props, ropes, unnatural rubber mats, synthetic rubber blocks, table, chair, benches or stick to hit students? Or do you suggest to use special meditation cushion, special meditation blanket, special relaxation blanket and special yoga outfit etc.?


In Sapta Yoga™ we do not use props, ropes or synthetic unnatural environmentally unsafe material. You know plastic or rubber mats never comes from natural sources. It is made with harmful, deadly dangerous, poisonous chemical material. Do you know until now several hundred million tons of rubber blocks, sticky mats and ropes in the market and people are using it. 


In Sapta Yoga™ we never hit people with sticks or with hands or legs. It is totally immoral and opposite of yoga philosophy. In true yoga tradition yoga master never hits or kicks his or her students. In Sapta Yoga™ we are all equal and friendly. In Sapta Yoga we like natural material for yoga practice. We use cotton blanket, cotton towels, cotton pants and shirts. We do not encourage our students to use nature’s unfriendly, environmentally unsafe, pollutant, chemical made and most expensive junk stuff.


In Sapta Yoga™ we do not heat our rooms in an abnormal temperature. We do not seal the doors and windows to keep old stale smelly filthy air to breathe. We use fresh air when we practice. In India and Nepal our courses takes place out door open airy areas, on top of the roof, under the Banyan tree, Himalayan Mountains, beside the lakes. You will love it.


How many courses do I need to attend to qualify myself as a Sapta Yoga™ International professional Teacher/Instructor?

As many as possible to make you confident. At least 1 to 3 courses and 2 good years of intensive practice. More you practice more confident you become and having faith about your own ability. As more you know, as better you give. Be happy!!!
