All TYP courses are rooted in the eastern traditions of Yoga, (Patanjali, Hatha, Vedanta & Tantra) as well as having significant influences of Shamanism and western Transpersonal Psychology. This means that a student’s lineage, background, childhood and early life parenting and conditioning can be investigated, as part of course practices and exercises.
All students should consider their physical, emotional and mental condition, before embarking on any course, and should consult a licensed physician if necessary as to their current or previous conditions which could affect their ability to complete any course of study.
