Our teachers are Yogis, a type of Yogi who utilizes their insights and realizations to create a better society and to inspire others to do the same.
From ancient times, there have been some Yogis who delved deep within themselves to understand human life and spirit. They also utilized their acquired knowledge to benefit society. But there were many Yogis who retired from the world to caves and mountains in search of spiritual realization and ignored society. We need more of those Yogis who can benefit society and the mission of our trainers is to create more of these Yogis. Our trainers have years of experience creating change. They have a dream to create the new planetary leaders society needs today.

Is this training only for beginners?
In this training, we assume everyone is a beginner in terms of how we approach the subject. But there is plenty of material for people who are already into meditation, refreshing some concepts, and even bringing new knowledge to the table!
How is this training different from other PLT courses?
In this training, practice is emphasized. Daily routines that we'll be doing will be gradually added upon to increase bliss, vitality, and inspiration.
Previous courses were more centered on knowledge whereas on this one we are striving for a dynamic balance of knowledge with action and interaction!
How much time do I need to dedicate for this training?
Since the training has direct implications on our daily routines, in the beginning, the amount of time goes from 30 daily minutes (a sum of meditation, yoga ásanas and study) and gradually increase those times. But it is not overwhelming, we have a gradual approach so that everyone can enjoy it properly on a particular rhythm that makes us move together!
