Pondicherry, a hidden gem of south east India and a former French colony on the Sea of Bengal, retains all of its charm and gentility of colonial times. Visit the birthplace of yoga and youll understand why its traditions have endured for millennium and they continue to have relevance and value in our modern world.

This transformational yoga teacher training course (TTC) will take place at Tenderness Guesthouse, near Auroville and Pondicherry, a perfect location in close proximity to both the Matrimandir and the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, which the Mother had once called a veritable laboratory to work out the future society.


While it is inspired by and based on the Teachings of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo, SriMa International School of Transformational Yoga is an Independent organization based in this region, and is not a part of the Auroville Foundation or Sri Aurobindo Ashram.
