I really enjoyed this Yin yoga teacher training course. In just a week we learnt detailed information about asanas, their benefits and proper alignment. We also got a few classes to practice teaching, which was very useful.  I loved the asana classes with Kalyani and Ram’s philosophy classes were insightful and thought-provoking. The teachers and volunteers were really helpful and always available to answer any questions we had. The food was delicious and the ashram grounds are peaceful and calm. The dorms are cozy and it was great to meet so many like-minded people. All in all it was a great week! Thank you Arhanta team! Kate, Ireland

After my 200 hour course with Arhanta in India this Yin Yoga teacher training course was a great opportunity to refresh, develop and grow further.  I learned so much on the teaching level, bus also on my personal path with Yoga. Thank you all for this great experience! Linda, Spain

It has been a very rewarding time for me. The teaching has especially been so clear. I have loved every minutes. Thank you so very much for the opportunity to study with you all! Sharron, Switzerland

The Arhanta Yoga Ashram has a very clear structure and very fine teachers. I felt secure to learn from true yoga teachers. Thank you! Guiba, The Netherlands

For me the 50 hour Yin Yoga teacher training course was a great addition to the 200 hour course at Arhanta. I learned a lot again that will help me improve and expand my yoga teaching. Thank you again! Helma, The Netherlands

I loved the whole teacher training! I loved the silence , I loved the food. I loved the accommodation and the walks. And I loved the classes! Gaelle, The Netherlands

I felt away from daily life, physically and mentally. The ashram provides a good setting to feel serene, focused and detached from daily attachments and worries. The area is very nice and spacious. I also like the food and the accommodation very much. The entire atmosphere was very positive and the food was nice too. I learn a  lot about Yoga and Yin Yoga. The teachers are very professional, yet involved and helpful at the same time. They really try to give as much as they can. I feel confident to start teaching Ying Yoga and understand how to help students according to their capacities and limitations. Juliet, France

Great experience! I learned a lot, because I am a Shiatsu therapist and not a yoga teacher. All the classes were very interesting. I especially like the philosophy classes with Yogi Ram and the meditations. The teachers are very inspiring! I was also very happy to meet so many nice new people! Thank you team Arhanta! Ymkje, The Netherlands

This Yin yoga teacher training was a very good experience. I have learnt a lot of new things and the teachers are professional and friendly. The simple lifestyle of the ashram was a special experience for me. It taught me a lot, that I also want to take home with me. Thank you all very much for the interesting classes, the healthy food and the lovely chanting evening. Gwen, The Netherlands
