“I really enjoyed this 300hr ATTC program. We learned many poses in hatha, yin and vinyasa yoga. We learned yoga nidra which was great to maintain team work and the idea that we are all in this experience together. The owners did a great job of maintaining the integrity of the ashram + the Indian culture of yoga. I would recommend this program to anyone wanting an authentic experience. This was an intensive program but well worth the travel and time.” Nicol, Canada
“I would like to thank Ram and Kalyani for all their efforts and personal interest in each one of us. It was a good experience, I loved walking under the night sky to pranayama at 530am. It was good being surrounded by nature and being away from so many distractions. I loved to learn about yin yoga, functional anatomy and yoga background and practice.” Elke, Germany
To be here was amazing! The best experience in my life to learn yoga. I can’t believe it! I did it and I am very proud because it was very hard for me, but it is worth a lot. I learned a lot. The best choice for a yoga teacher training. How to teach was very detailed. Right now I feel a lot of confidence in myself to teach yoga. It changed my life. Thank you so much Arhanta yoga team!
