  The choice of an experienced team in indian wisdom  

Today, Yogakshemam School, a member of the Yoga Federation of Teaching Lines and a member of the International Yoga Federation, continues its mission of transmission under the leadership and blessing of Sri T.K.

All are driven by the desire to transmit this multisecular teaching so that others, tomorrow, can continue this momentum that passes through time without ever losing The Truth.

In 1998 I join the school Yogashemam directed by Sri.T.K. Sribhashyam which I have been teaching for 20 years.
