Our short story.

Encouraged by every existing temple in India and combining spiritual teachings with daily life, Adam and Helen dreamed of a place where they could practice what inspired them and give all the students and yoga community transformative adventure with teaching scholars and yoga leaders of the highest importance.

In 2008, their student Michael suggested his own dream of founding a yoga studio. So, the three were ready for changes and recognized that their joint skills, expertise, and passion would let them turn their dream into reality. The ATTA yoga studio opened its doors in 2009.
