Guru Purnima (‘Guru Full Moon’) is a special celebration occurring once a year. The ‘Guru Full Moon’ allows students around the world to develop an ‘attitude of gratitude’, paying respects to long-standing yoga teachers, Gurus, and spiritual helpers.

All yoga students have an opportunity on this day to visit their favourite yoga teacher or Guru on Guru Purnima. Students traditionally pay respects for what they have learned, and show appreciation for the lessons and help offered by the teacher over past years.
