Jacqueline Review

"I came here to Arhanta ashram with an open mind and no idea what would come. It was four weeks full of intensive, hard, emotional, great, strengthening and fantastic work with the group, the teachers and myself. I have no regrets and am still thankful and happy that I could learn from such excellent teachers in this wonderful area. Now I am looking forward to teaching my yoga class. Thank you very much to the entire Arhanta team. I wish you all the best."

Our Core Values

Our Philosophy - Authenticity

At Arhanta, we bring you a rich heritage of five generations. You will learn from a teacher who has studied intense yoga from childhood at traditional Indian Vedic schools. We believe that true yoga is applied 20% on the mat and 80% off the mat in your everyday life.

Our Knowledge - Excellence

We are traditional, but our traditions do not restrict us. We regularly research and apply modern science-based anatomy, physiology, and new developments in the fitness and exercise field. This means you are guaranteed proven and accurate knowledge of the best standard.

Our Approach - Empowering

In reality, the concept of “one alignment for all” can turn up empty results. We believe everyone is unique in their body, mind, and capabilities. Therefore, we teach you how to understand your students individually and provide personalized alignments and adjustments.

Our Commitment - Integrity

We are devoted to the success of our students & community. We provide lifelong support, not only during the course but also after. Our highest priority is helping you reach your goals.

Our Professionalism - High Standards

We are passionately committed in doing the best we can for you. At Arhanta, you can be assured of the highest professional standard in training, communication & support. 

I have the highest regard for Arhanta, and they stand by their values. I am so glad I came across their website. Ram has such deep knowledge that he explains clearly with humor & tales. I learned more with this course in one month than in the 2- year long teacher training I completed earlier.
