A significant portion of the student’s fees goes directly towards fulfilling Dr. Sushil’s vision: the establishment of the Chandra Yoga International Ashram. Students who have completed the yoga teacher training program with Chandra Yoga are invited back to India to visit the ashram once per year. The collected fees not only provide students with a unique and transformative international yoga training experience but also pave the way for future spiritual practitioners and a greater elevation of consciousness for all mankind.
