“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! Maria, Mexico
“It has been an exciting month! What a wonderful experience! Once in a lifetime! It was very challenging, especially physically, but I learned a lot of incredible things in many ways. The training has been very educational in several ways and I really grew physically and mentally. I also had some small victories on myself. Who could ever have thought of me studying not once but even twice with you, particularly in India!! It has given me so much inspiration. I cannot thank you enough, I feel blessed!” Nancy, Netherlands
“I came to this course hoping to deepen my understanding, of yoga and Hindu philosophy, and anatomy as it relates to teaching yoga. In these areas, my learning far expected my expectations. In the past, I’ve had limited experience with Yin yoga, and was pleased to learn Taoist philosophy as well. Now I feel qualified to teach Yin yoga. Ram and Kalyani are outstanding teachers and I am overwhelmed by the growth and beauty of the ashram. I would recommend this program to any truly dedicated yoga teacher. It is very challenging, but equally rewarding.” John, USA
“I enjoyed the ATTC training a lot. It’s a tough training in which you receive a great deal of tools you can apply immediately into your life. I also learned how to adapt a sequence with advanced yoga poses and the correction techniques to apply. Ram and Kalyani are very competent teachers. The ashram in India is beautiful, minimalistic and breaths a calm and wonderful atmosphere. This education is very well composed: Adjusted meals, control over your feelings, meditation, yoga, how you teach, all kinds of styles, philosophy, minimalistic surroundings, cleansing the body. A must for everyone!” René, Netherlands
“This is my second time here, and as the first one, is has been amazing. Wonderful people, wonderful atmosphere and so many new things to learn. Every person of the staff has been very kind and professional. The surroundings nature is stunning: I was really able to feel at home in this place.” Matteo, Italy
“This was my second time at Arhanta. The training this time was also very inspiring. All the asana classes were great. Kalyani is a fantastic teacher, she has lots of knowledge but also shows you how building up an asana. The philosophy classes were challenging for me but also very useful, especially to use in your own classes. Ram knows a lot about the whole philosophy. A big thanks to Arhanta! And maybe we’ll meet again at one of the refresher courses!” Lucia, Netherlands
“I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Arhanta. I learned a lot of new things and made some fantastic new friends. Every time we came back from town, it felt like coming home. Thanks to the teachings about letting go of attachment and working with a life vision, I now feel much more confident in moving ahead. Thank you all very much for everything.” Cinderelle, Netherlands
“I liked that I learned about Yin as well as Vinyasa. Kalyani is kind, patient and very knowledgeable. I found the philosophy interesting, as well as the physiology. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The guards are kind and respectful. I’m satisfied with the training and knowledge I received and am excited to apply it to my classes in the future.” Amanda, USA
“It was the second time for me in the Ashram in India. The grounds became even more beautiful and the food better! I learned everything I wanted to learn; how to teach a Vinyasa class, a Yin class, sequencing & anatomy. I feel I have all the knowledge necessary to start my teaching adventure in real life. Many thanks to Kalyani & Ram!” Linda, Netherlands
