The blow by Covid19 pandemic has already left a huge impact in the world’s economy resulting in shut-down of many industries and massive job losses. Nobody knows how long this uncertainty will continue. Question people have in mind – will there be a second wave of this pandemic?
During the lockdown, many businesses have been forced to move to online, in particular, the online learning is set to play a major role. The proliferation of internet and search engines have made many information so accessible at the touch of a few clicks away. A living incarnation, HDH Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam (fondly known as Swamiji) once said that his Gurukul (Vedic school) kids do not need to go to study whatever knowledge that can be found on Google search.

About one year ago, I received a divine guidance from my Guru (fondly known as Swamiji) to start a Kids Yoga Teachers Training program. Last year, I underwent a tumultuous phase in my personal life, honestly, at the time I was unable to see the big picture and the immense possibilities that were waiting to unfold in me. Naturally, my first reaction was filled with many thought currents of self-doubt. ‘Why did Swamiji ask me to create a Kids Yoga Teachers Training? Who would want to attend another kids’ yoga teachers training program conducted by a teacher who is not even famous?! How to give certification when I don’t really believe in the existing certification bodies? What would be the scope of the training content?’
