Diploma In Yoga Counselling (Level 3)


It is only when we have healed ourselves, are we then in a position to heal others. Since, only then, is our intention to heal others out of true compassion and not for any personal gains. The Diploma Program in Yoga Counselling is thus a practical training that puts you through a scrubbing machine to cleanse away all the blocks that prevent the diamond inside, from shining brightly.

This is also the practical part of Transcending Homeostasis where, after working on ourselves, we are in a better position to go beyond personal comforts/ aspirations and contribute towards the healing of others. This program is thus applicable not only for counselors, but also for parents, teachers, friends or even simple well-wishers.


This Diploma Program integrates the best of Contemporary Psychology with the present-day application of the Eastern World View. The program has been divided in two parts;

  • 2 Contact Sessions and

  • 2 Non-Contact Sessions
