Testimonials

My experience with the Yoga Teacher Training Course has been truly wonderful. I am leaving with much more than a teaching certificate. I have learned so much in terms of Asanas (postures), Vedanta philosophy, and the Yogic way of life. The teachers were exceptional and surpassed all my expectations.
Chaitanya is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor making classes productive yet always light-hearted and fun. As Chaitanya would say I am leaving “ridiculously happy”.
I would recommend this course to anybody interested in a Yoga-teacher training course.
