What our Yoga teacher training graduates say

yoga teacher training Amanda “Doing the TTC course at Arhanta was the best choice I made. In 4 weeks time I have grown more than I could ever imagine. Its very intense physically and mentally but it is so worth it. I can teach an open class now with full confidence and I’ve only been practicing yoga for 1 year myself. The teachers are very professional and they help you with whatever you are struggling with. Being away from your family for 4 weeks is hard but time flies here. You are getting so much information to digest that you almost don’t have time to think about it. So I had a great experience and great lessons in life and teaching. I would do it all again no doubt about it.”Amanda, The Netherlands

Hatha yoga teacher training Maria“I arrived with my arms wide open to the experience. I didn’t know what was about to happen. Finally I have found a challenging course, where every day you learn more and more. Every day I had to push myself and break my fears. I have improved in my teaching skills and I definitely think I am ready to teach Yoga and to share the love I feel for it. Now I am starting a new period in my life with a wide knowledge about Yoga and about myself.” Maria, Spain

Yoga teacher training course Johanna” This training is everything which Arhanta Yoga had promised it to be. Excellent teachers, very good program. I have studied philosophy (western at academic level) and I can say that the philosophy Yogi Ram teaches reaches a similar level, very interesting, very enriching. The program is full but also tight. There is not much time for study because in the evenings you are tired of the full day program. The Asana classes are brilliant, very motivating. The staff is very helpful and tries to provide you with as much information as possible, in the best way they can. This is the best training course I have had. Four weeks fly but the seed which is planted has found a definite ground. Thank you!” Johanna, Belgium
