Our Transformational Yoga teacher training course (TTC) will take place at Tenderness Guesthouse in Auroville near 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.
