1.You are required to have a preliminary self-practice before joining our TTC. As a school, we cannot quantify the time of practice necessary to participate in the course, however, we suggest you consider a TTC if you have regularity of practice of minimum 3 times a week for a minimum of 6 months. In case you are not sure if you are ready, click here to find out what options you have at the Yoga Sangha.
2. It is not necessary to have practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa before. A practice of Hatha Yoga is sufficient to join the course.
3. It is suggested to read Siddhartha (120 pages) by Hermann Hesse before joining our course but this is a suggestion to develop your understanding rather than a pre-requisite to join the TTC. Other suggested reading includes: Yoga Body: The Origins of Modern Posture Practice by Mark Singleton, Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda, the classic Light on Yoga and Light on Pranayama by B.K.S. Iyengar. We also recommend listening to lectures by Alan Watts (easily available on youtube), and watching such films as Seven Years in Tibet, Little Buddha, Siddharta (the 1972 adaptation of Hermann Hesse’s book). They will all serve as a good preparation and tuning in with the mind frame present during the course.
4. We also encourage you to come with an open mind and keep an attitude of humble learning and non-judgment as everything you encounter during the course can greatly benefit you.
