Maharishi Patanjali, the great expounder of yoga, has divided the human body into five parts:
1. The Physical body
2. The Vital body (Pranamayakos )
3. The Mental body ( Manomayakos )
4. The Consciousness body (Vigyanmayakos)
5. The Spiritual body (Anandmayakos)

At Samatva Yoogalaya, we teach you to practice yoga on two levels, that is, the Physical body and the Vital body. The simple equation we work on is not difficult to understand. Physical body + Vital body = Mental body which means that when we work on the Physical body and the Vital body together then we automatically begin the process that brings healing to the Mental body.

Ethical Guidelines

Ethical Guidelines

  • Samatva Yogalaya adopts the ancient approach to yoga to inculcate in each student the wisdom that yoga manifests. Teaching and learning is therefore designed in such a way that ethical practices are ingrained automatically in the students at the Yogalaya.
  • The day begins with the daily regimen (Dincharya) and ancient code of conduct. Activities are planned according to seasonal code of conduct (Ritucharya). The concept of behavior chemistry (Achar- rasayan) is the concept that students are expected to imbibe.
  • Maharishi Patanjali prescribed certain rules of how a person is expected to act in society (Yama) and how personal code and conduct (Niyama) is the expected and essential behavior for individuals to follow. We at the Yog Peeth expect this behavior terminology to be understood and practiced sincerely and honestly by all students to the best extent possible.
  • Before students register for the yoga teacher training they must be aware that this traditional teaching will differ from that of the west. There could even be a fundamental difference in the understanding of the yogic path as that which is taught in the yoga schools in the west.
  • Modified exercises that go by the name of yoga are frowned upon by Samatva Yogalaya and so only those students must apply for the course who are willing to commit to the strict regimen of the school.

Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

  • Discipline is an integral part of the training program and so the course routine must be strictly observed.
  • Disrespect to rules and regulations could result in termination of studentship with no refund of fee.
  • Absenting oneself from the scheduled program without prior permission of the teacher or manager concerned would be construed as a gross breach of discipline.
  • A student must intimate in advance if they intend to forgo a meal so that there is no wastage of food.
  • The school does not make arrangements for guests of students. Any activity that is not related to the course is not permitted.
  • Ensure you are on time for class or you will not be permitted to enter any class once it has commenced.
  • Before departure from the school, students must payy all dues and return all library books.
  • Smoking and alcohol are not permitted during the training.

Refund Policy

Refund Policy

All aspirants are advised to carefully consider the time and resources required for the course before forwarding the application for the teacher training course. The deposit submitted with the application is not refundable. However, in case of emergencies and other unavoidable exigencies management of Samatva Yogalaya at its discretion permits students to go for any other forthcomimg course. We therefore recommend that all applicants carefully examine their upcoming obligations so that they may be able to devote their full attention to the teacher training program.

Krishna goes beyond teaching the principles of Yoga. He is not an ordinary teacher. If you want to learn what Yoga is and how to apply it into your life then you've found the right teacher. There are no misrepresentations. You will leave with the right & well rounded knowledge. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to have been his student and would do it again in a heartbeat if life would allow me to. Much Love & Truth Always.
