20.  I am thinking of coming in October but I have read that the season in Goa does not start until November.  What is open?

The monsoon finishes in October and so this month can be rainy with bursts of sunshine. The bars and restaurants are built during this month as soon as the license from the local government has been issued. Everything on Patnem Beach is open by November.  The October course runs successfully as our garden shala has a roof and so we are fine to practice if it is raining.  As our courses are residential, all food and refreshments are provided on campus.  The tendency is for students to spend most of their time on campus during their course and evenings are spent studying.  Our ocean view campus should be ready for October as long as we have had permission from the local government to commence the work.  If you do book this accommodation for October, it is possible that you may be housed in the garden campus or just outside of the yoga village for a week or so while the building work completes.  

21. Do you have drop in classes?

Yes, we have 3 classes per day open to the public, please email us to know the daily schedule and prices. i get a certificate for the YTTC?

Yes, you will get a certificate valid on Yoga Alliance.

23. What is the difference between Yoga Holiday and Yoga Holidays Intesive?

We offer a few options at the shala for yoga holidays.  We have yoga holiday packages which include up to three 90 minute asana classes a day (8:30am Ashtanga Led Primary Series (modified), 11:00am Slow Flow and 4:30pm Vinyasa Flow, as well as daily Pranayama and Meditation classes.

We also offer week long yoga intensives which include everything in the holiday package plus 6 daily 75 minute individual or small group classes (group size just depends on the number of people who have signed up for an intensive that week, so it may just be you or 2-3 other guests as well).  This course is a really great opportunity to deepen your practice, ask questions, and receive loads of one-on-one attention from our teachers.  You can basically let us know what you want to learn and work on and that's what will be covered during that time.

Kranti Yoga is based on Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow.  We teach the fundamentals of traditional Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series along with dynamism of Vinyasa Flow Classes.  Both of these complement each other, the prescribed sequence of The Primary Series along with the creativity of Vinyasa Flow Classes.  We call it Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.  We offer you a unique programme that allows you to further develop your practice effectively with immediate results.   

Courses start with Ashtanga Yoga Led Classes that then progress to Self-Practice classes as you gain familiarity with The Primary Series.  These are taught alongside workshops that have been devised to build strength and flexibility through the technical focus of hip opening, jumping back, transitions and back bending.  All these are the fundamental elements of becoming a skilled practitioner of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.

Our programme was developed by Kranti when he observed that moving the body through The Primary Series everyday was not enough to build your practice.  He therefore devised these workshops in order to bring attention to the areas that often prove problematic in practice.  The fundamentals of these workshops have also been put into dynamic vinyasa sequences in classes such as Hip Opening Flow and Back Bending Flow which have since been developed.

Each and every one of our students arrives with his or her own development needs based on prior experience and knowledge of Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow.  Each and every student is unique in terms of body type, strength and flexibility.  We therefore recognise that personalised learning is at the heart of Kranti Yoga as we tailor our programme to suit the needs of our Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga students.


Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Classes and Workshops
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Led Class (Morning)
A Senior Teacher will guide you through The Primary Series with modifications (easier versions of the postures) if needed.  This will help you to gain insight into how the sequence flows from posture to posture as the breath initiates the movement.  The class will be supported by our Assistant Teachers who will correct alignment and give some light adjustments.
  Classes will often start with a spiritual message from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras or sometimes with a more technical focus based on what you ahave been learning in your Anatomy/Alignment Class.


Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Mysore Style Self-Practice (Morning)
In this class, you will complete The Primary Series, just as you have learnt in the Led Classes, by yourself.  This means you practice at your own pace and in your own time.  Mysore Style Self-Practice will give you the chance to experience meditation through movement as you allow the
rhythm of your own breath lead you through the sequence.  Your Senior Teacher, along with the Assistant Teachers will assist and adjust you.  It is the ideal opportunity for us to personalise your learning and advance you in some of the postures on an individual basis.

Hip Opening Technical Workshop (Afternoon)
This is a powerful and dynamic class designed to open the hips.  The hips are one of the major joints in the body and open hips are key to moving deeper into your practice, helping you master more challenging gateway postures of the Primary Series.  Hip opening helps to release blocked tensions and stored emotion. In making our hips more flexible, we can help keep our lower backs healthy.

During Hip Opening class we also work on developing our leg strength, as strong legs and thighs result in hip flexibility.  We will guide you in this powerful, deep and energising class.

Jump Through/Back Technical Workshop (Afternoon)
Kranti Yoga will lead you through this powerful workshop intended to isolate and strengthen the parts of the body required for a light, graceful yet strong vinyasa.  We’ll work on building strength in the arms and shoulders, core, back and legs.

Not only will you learn tools and technique to improve your jump through and jump backs, we will break down each stage of the transition and each movement for you to apply and try during Mysore Style Self-Practice Classes.


Back Bending Technical Workshop (Afternoon)
Backbending requires the rest of the body to be open.  You need a calm, open mind.  During this workshop we will take a look in depth at the correct technique, alignment and breathing for performing intense back bends without injury.

This class begins by warming up the whole body with three different styles of sun salutations, working through the spine from the cervical vertebrae, through the thoracic to the lumbar region to help you gain maximum flexibility throughout the entire back.

Back bending is an incredibly important part of yoga as spinal health is absolutely key to overall health and wellbeing. The spine is connected with our whole nervous system, circulatory system and the nadis.


Hip Opening Flow (Morning)
This class is a dynamic 2 hour class that combines what you have learnt in the  Hip Opening Workshop with Vinyasa Flow.  The sequence will build towards gateway postures such as Hanumanasana and Padmasana (splits and lotus poses) through the preparation and release of the muscles needed for such postures whether in terms of strength or flexibility.    The sequence is deep and dynamic and sure way to open your hips.

This class is always warmly received as it provides inspiration in terms of its sequencing, particularly for YTTC students who are devising sequences for themselves. 


Back Bending Flow (Morning)
This is another 2 hour class and works towards peak postures like Urdhva Dhanurasana and Shalabhasana.   The structure of class allows you to lengthen and strengthen those muscles needed to be successful in this area.  The sequence remains the same each week in order that you can see the visible progress that this class along with the Back Bending Workshop brings.    

The postures included in this class require mental strength and focus.  I working with the nervous system, you will reap the benefits of feeling energised and rejuvenated  Typically, this class takes place on a Saturday morning and is a great way to end your week.
