Kranti Yoga | Patnem


Kranti Yoga School is  based on Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow, offering teacher training courses in Patnem, South Goa. By far one of the most popular centres in Goa, their short term yoga courses are ideal for beginners and help students to quickly learn the different aspects of Yoga. The trainees can learn the basics of various yoga poses, techniques required to execute, and the science behind them.

Yoga can help discipline our sense of energy with the power of our own." (All photos via Kranti Yoga School's Facebook page)
