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

Sharron, Switzerland

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

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!
