"This Hatha Yoga teacher training certification has been such an amazing experience. I have learned so much, not only solely about yoga but also about myself. The teachers are wonderful. You can tell how passionate they are about what they are teaching and they really push you to achieve your best."
"This intensive Hatha Yoga teacher training course is brilliant! It offered me challenges, personal and spiritual growth and forced me to confront my fears by absolutely completely taking them out of my comfort zone. I would recommend this Yoga instructor certification program to everyone serious about deepening their understanding of yoga."
"It’s amazing how much I have learned in one month of Hatha Yoga teacher training. All the teachers here are very supportive. Each day I felt motivated to try something new and was pushed beyond limits I never knew I had. I feel confident leaving Arhanta and ready to teach. Overall it was a challenging and rewarding experience."

They are thankful for the great explanation, good rhythm and focus in the classes.
It’s the discipline and talented teachers at Arhanta yoga ashram that have give me those qualities.
Thank you so much!read more
Joy, laughter, tears, moments of peace and moments of struggeling. I learned a lot, not only to teach and do a good job, but also know how to correct, why a pose is good for your body and a lot about the philosophy of yoga. And beside that I also learned a lot about myself.
I feel ready to teach, and I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to be in the Ashram and to share it with my group. The staf and our teachers are really inspiring people, they learn you how to believe in yourself. I will never forget it.
So thank you all, namaste Marianneread more
Marijke. And to the... staff in the kitchen, the guards and gardeners.
I am very happy that my intuition brought me here. On the one hand I really learned a lot and I grew much more than I expected, on the other hand I could
also heal a lot on all levels of ‘me’. This TTC is perfect for you when
you come with a clear goal and focus to be ready to teach a class with
confidence, accepting and adapting to the demanding schedule of the
days, which made this experience even more authentic. Also if you want to
understand or heal yourself on deeper levels, set your clear intentions
and you will have the possibility here because you will get to your
limits and get confronted with inner conflicts or issues going on.
That’s why I would also clearly state, that this course requires good
physical, mental and emotional health and stability. I do not recommend
it to people having a lot of troubles or problems going on, whether it's mentally or physically, as it can be too overwhelming and exhausting.
Ram played the role of a strict teacher very well.
Omkar was teaching with patience and humour, always very professional.
Marijke and Karen were always giving their best to support and available
to us in times we were having trouble physically or mentally.
I was completely fine with the food provided, even though sometimes I
was missing some nuts or seeds, as it was always vegan food and maybe my
body was asking for more protein. Or it was just my mind which may be
slightly attached to nuts ;)
I appreciate it very much that we can still keep contact with Omkar and
Ram to ask them, whenever we have any questions or doubts. And I
gratefully can say that I met wonderful souls here and could learn from
each of them. To learn as a group was also something that got really
encouraged, and that strengthened the group and each individual during the last weeks. Thank you.
The location is also very interesting. You're really far out into the country, surrounded by rural India, but also only half an hour away from an airport and a very urban Khajuraho.
Anyone commited to this kind of experience will gain a lot by doing the course.read more
Ram is a natural born story teller. For me, the nicest course of all, because I didn’t expect it. It made me think a lot about myself, my life and my ego. I will carry all this with me for the rest of my life and share it with my children, friends and family.
THANK YOU A LOT. Even though this was not always an easy journey, I think I understand the aim of yoga now.read more
I want to emphasize especially the high quality of both content and methods provided. Being a sport scientist and a certified personal trainer, I attended many seminars and workshops in Europe. Yet, the high standards and quality of teaching and organization by team Arhanta surprised me positively. To me it was a great experience! Apart from that, Ram and Omkar are two extremely nice guys that not only teach their subjects very well, but also appeared to be always open and approachable to any kind of personal issue. They are definitely in the right job!
In brief: If you come to Arhanta, you will learn yoga asanas, how to teach them, you will study yogic philosophy and anatomy, and , maybe most important: you will get to know a bit better who you really are - surrounded and supported by brilliant people!read more
The ashram has a calming effect on your mind because there is no distraction or noise.
The food was perfect and healthy prepared, nutritious and tasty.
The local staff were doing a great job. They took care of us (felt very safe), kept the ashram clean, and were always friendly.
The teachers and assistants were really helpful and professional. The Arhanta learning/teaching system works really well.
First time of teaching a small group during the teacher training was hard because I felt really insecure. Just a few weeks later I was able to teach a class with a smile on my face. They brought us out of our comfort zone.
Thank you Arhanta. This course was life changing.read more
We lived there together with the teachers, we could be a part of their Divali celebration and experienced the "easy" life without distractions.
The training was of the finest quality. It almost surprised me how much knowledge one can absorb in only one month in the theory classes taught by Ram. I enjoyed all the stories and objectivity that made me listen to every single word.
What I enjoyed the most were the asana classes as I could focus on myself and grow in my own practice. I was pushed physically, emotionally and spiritually. After a challenging month of "How to teach" classes I can truly say that I am ready to go home and start teaching yoga classes. That with all my thanks to Omkar and the volunteers.
The teachers made this time unforgettable, along with the beautiful sunrises, singing birds and amazing students from all over the world. Thank you! 🙏read more
thanks for this journey it gave me a brother and a great friendship
hahaha omkar your a good teacher and after all became a great friend and brotherread more
I would recommend it to anyone who is ready to dive into yoga or is ready to look at him- or herself.
Thank you for all lessons given, I am still benefitting from it from moment to moment.read more
Thank you Arhanta for being part of my path!read more
Ik wilde heel erg graag een yogaleraar woorden...en dat is gelukt... omdat de leraren van Arhantha yoga ongelovelijk professionel zijn. Naast het worden van een yogaleraar krijg je heel veel achtergrondinformatie van de yogaphylosophie!
Ik heb het best physisch en psychisch zwaar gehad maar het was het waard!
Nogmaals heel erg bedankt voor deze geweldige onvergetelijke tijd!read more
One of the things I liked most about the “how to teach classes” is the how structure of classes enabled me get outside my comfort zone whilst reducing the fear of teaching other people yoga. I could see my progress after each class.
I am also grateful for the different kinds of meditation and pranayamas which they taught us. My biggest passion goes to yoga philosophy with Yogi Ram (a very good communicator and storyteller) and the chanting which touched my heart deeply. Since then I chant every day and I feel changes within me as my inner balance grows and serenity surrounds me.
Furthermore the food was delicious, the ashram clean, quiet and surrounded by beautiful nature…I love it.
All teachers are professionals, have a passion for teaching and are friendly.
I recommend this ashram if you want to become a yoga teacher and develop yourself. Big thanks to the whole Arhanta-Team and the students that had an impact on my liferead more
Thanks for this wonderful experience! With all my heart.
The practical classes were very good, we have learnt very well how to teach and especially how to correct in the right way. The area is the perfect location for an ashram, so silent, that is great, also the possibility to practise Yoga outside.
I liked hearing and learning the main parts of the yoga philosophy - Who am I?- and to concentrate 1 month on this.
The food - lunch and dinner - was good.
Thank you for all !!!!!!!read more
Absolutely one of the best thing I have done is come here. You feel like you are part of the family as soon as you arrive, thank you so much and see you again soon!read more
Most of it I found out of a “world”: a philosophy and conduct of life that have changed me.
This is a month of very hard work, lots of difficult moments, frustrations and joy all at the same time.
Thanks to the teacher who were professional and knowledgeable, extremely generous, firm and fun.
A very touching experience, thank you very much from my heart!read more
I came to... appreciate the peace of the ashram, its surrounding and its regularity.
Great respect for the teachers. You taught profound the asanas and the Yoga philosophy in 1 month and taught me to start to understand what it is al about. With the knowledge obtained in this month, the strength to let go of the old and let come in the new found peace it means a very important step in my life.
Thank youread more
The course has a very good structure, as the asanas as the theory as well. The staff is very professional and careful.
I have learned a lot, much more than what I was expecting. I recommend this great experience to anyone wants to deepen and understanding what yoga really means, for himself/herself or for teaching.
I just would like to say thank you!
OM SHANTI !read more
The calm environment, friendly and skilled staff and the balanced meals has made this trip a very special one.read more
So guys if you want to go for the real stuff go to Arhanta! :)read more
Om Shantiread more
Although the ashram experience was very hard for me in the beginning, I understand that its due to my own perspective and has nothing to do with what is offered here. We are not used to living with such structure in our lives, so it takes some of us time to adjust. But it has given me what I came for personally, and I also can't wait to teach when I get home.read more
If there is a chance for me to come back once more...I definitely will!read more
Ram is a quiet, professional teacher, clear and sincere with a lot of patience. The asana teachers have a lot knowledge, know us to peak performance in a short time with a great team. All positive thinking people drag you through anything. I have learned really a lot.
I am very grateful for all the knowledge I've learned in this course and for the self confidence that I've gotten in such a short time. I recommend this course to everyone who want to be a good Yoga Teacher. Arhanta Yoga Thank you so much.....read more
