Yin Yoga Teacher Training Reviews

“It has been a very rewarding time for me. All classes were very clear. I have enjoyed each minute. Thank you all so much for the opportunity to learn from you!” Sharron, Switzerland

“The Arhanta Yoga Ashram has a very clear structure and amazing teachers. It felt like a safe environment to learn from true yoga teachers. Thank you!” Guiba, Netherlands

“After my 200 hour teacher training at Arhanta in India, this yin yoga course was a great opportunity to refresh my knowledge and to develop myself further. I have learned a lot about teaching but also about my personal yoga path. Thank you for this wonderful experience!” Linda, Spain

“This Yin Yoga teacher training was an amazing addition to the 200 hour training by Arhanta. Once again Arhanta has taught me a great deal which will help me to improve and expand my yoga classes. Thanks again!” Helma, Netherlands

“It was amazing. I have enjoyed the peace and the food. The accommodation and the walks were also wonderful. But above all, the classes were superb!” Gaelle, Netherlands

“I felt so far away from daily life, both physically and mentally. The yoga ashram offers a good environment to be peaceful, focused and far away from daily problems. The property is very wide. The accommodation and the food were also great. The whole atmosphere was wonderful. I have learned a lot about yin yoga and yoga in general. The teachers were professional, but also caring and helpful at the same time. They really try to transfer all of their knowledge. Now I feel confident enough to start teaching yin yoga, but also to help my students taking their personal limitations into consideration.” Juliet, France

“A wonderful experience! I have learned a lot, also because I am a Shiatsu therapist and not a yoga teacher. I specifically enjoyed the philosophy classes with Yogi Ram and the meditation sessions. The other teachers are also very inspiring. I am also very happy to have met so many new and wonderful people. Thank you Team Arhanta!” Ymkje, Netherlands

“The yoga teacher training was a great experience. I have learned a lot of new things and the teachers were very professional and friendly. The simple lifestyle at the ashram was also a unique experience for me. It has learned me a lot of things that I would like to apply in my daily life back home. Thank you everyone for the interesting classes, the healthy food and the wonderful chanting.” Gwen, Netherlands

“I had a great time during this yin yoga teacher training course. In only 1 week time we have received a lot of detailed information about the benefits of the asanas and their proper alignment. A few classes were dedicated to practicing how to teach, which was also very useful. This course is not for beginning yoga practitioners but for people how have already followed a TTC and who have some knowledge of the asanas and anatomy. I loved the Yin yoga classes with Kalyani and the philosophy classes with Ram were very inspiring and gave a lot to think about. The teachers and volunteers were very helpful and always available to answer questions and offer help. The food was delicious and the ashram environment very beautiful. The dormitories were very cosy and I loved meeting so many likeminded people. All in all a very successful week. Thank you team Arhanta.” Kate, Ireland

“In the beginning I was very nervous to attend the Yin Yoga teacher training, but as soon as I arrived, I was reassured and helped. From the registration until the end of the course: nothing was too much for team Arhanta to provide. The yoga ashram is located in the beautiful Dutch countryside (near the German border), a quiet and peaceful place, perfect for a Yin Yoga introduction. There is no pollution near the ashram, so we could see a perfect clear sky filled with stars when leaving the yoga hall in the evenings or when going for a silent walk in the mornings.
The energy in the class was amazing and I will always remember the laughter and the deep conversations I have had with my class members during this week. Everything is very precisely organized and planned to make sure we remain on schedule, but do not worry: there is plenty of time to laugh and to make new friends. The daily 3 meals were plenty. The breakfast, soup and salad for lunch, but also diner were always delicious. I am pretty new at vegetarianism, and I will definitely take home some new and tasty ideas for delicious and nutritious recipes.
Yogi Ram is an amazing teacher. He takes enough time for everything and teaches us so much more than expected with his amusing stories. He is a master in philosophy and he has enlightened my path with his wisdom. I will always be grateful for that. Kalyani gave the anatomy and Yin asana classes with love and attention. We almost floated out of the yoga hall after her classes. The light in her beautiful eyes shows her love for yoga and for her students. Finally special thanks to the volunteers who have helped us through this week, inside and outside of the yoga hall. You were amazing!” Heidelberg, Germany
