Our Raja Yoga Teacher Training is internationally acknowledged by the International Yoga Federation (IYF), honorary member of the European Union of Yoga Associations (EUYA) and the Association Française de Yoga (AFY).
Our Energy Healing method was originally called: Esoteric Healing. This comprises working with subtle energy to enhance healing from within. This implies healing from the soul. The underlying philosophy is the view that we are more than our body and psyche. Everything is energy.
