A Note From Studio Owner, Sandra Vanatko:


Yoga has always been about finding the teacher within. You do not need to follow someone or listen to someone to find the gifts of Yoga. This training is set up in a way that gives students empowering experiences to find their own inner truth through potent kriyas and meditations. Kundalini Yoga has been life changing for my practice and many students that I have worked with over the years.  I am excited to work with the Austin team once again to bring this training to North Texas.


I love that this training now takes the emphasis on the original Kundalini yoga teachers out of the practice and focuses on only sharing the incredible kriyas and meditations of Kundalini Yoga. Judge your Yoga by your experience and your practice, and trust yourself above all others. I appreciate the new outline for this course and the new textbooks that accompany the training. Take a look at them at the studio.


Follow your intuition, listen to your heart, and you will master yoga.

“Completing YTT through Indra’s Grace has absolutely been one of the best experiences of my life! The depth of information about all things “yoga” was amazing and each time we met, it left me fulfilled but yet wanting more. I don’t believe that there are better teachers than those that provided our instruction and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. If you are thinking at all about becoming a yoga teacher, Indra’s Grace would be well worth your while!”


“Indra’s Grace is above and beyond most teacher trainings. Other students in my training classes had taken training elsewhere but did not receive the in-depth knowledge that is truly required to be an excellent yoga teacher and yogi. Diving deep into the meaning of yoga and how to be a genuine yogi was so powerful. If you are looking to stop the record in your head telling you that you are not enough, this training is for you! The teachers are Truly compassionate, caring and provide step by step instructions for yoga, a deeper spirituality of ones choosing which results in self-acceptance and compassion to help heal humanity.”


“If you’re experiencing even the smallest of callings to take the training, I recommend going for it. This isn’t just about learning how to inhabit poses and how to teach. It’s a deep and non-judgmental exploration of self — our habits, our blocks, and our limiting beliefs. The teachers are beautiful guides. This training has changed my life, opening me up to living more authentically and with radical self-love. Give yourself this gift!”


“10 Stars! I would recommend Indra’s teacher trainings because you get the FULL yoga training and so much more! It has been truly transformational for me!”


“A life changing Program for anyone who is interested in self discovery or to become an empathetic/compassionate yoga teacher. Experienced, compassionate, and devoted teachers and fellow yogis. Embarking on this adventure is the best thing I have ever done in my life. So grateful, and thankful. Lots of love!”
