Reviews & Feedback


“At the beginning of the yoga teacher training course I was worried I would feel isolated in my asana classes as I have a back injury which often limits my movements. I was pleasantly surprised that my asana teacher Omkar, was so welcoming and caring about all the students with any kind of injury and were always giving us alternative exercises to keep us involved. This definitely made my experience so much more enjoyable. I also really appreciated Omkar’s humour in his classes, as I never left his class without a smile on my face.” (Jennah, London, England)


“In the beginning you don’t know what to expect. To live in a group with a lot of rules and little time for yourself. But after a few days it isn’t that difficult anymore. You go with the flow. Like everyone, so did I have my hard moments. But the group and the staff takes good care of you. This yoga teacher training course is very professional and every day you feel the progress you make, physically as well as mentally. For me an experience I will never forget. I am leaving Arhanta with more confidence, more knowledge and more focus to live more healthy. This is what you gave me here and for that I am grateful.” (Helma, Apeldoorn, Netherlands)


“Our time at the Arhanta yoga teacher training ashram for my daughter and I has been a truly memorable bonding experience. Although fraught with mental and physical challenges, it has ultimately been a rewarding, satisfying experience and has fully prepared my 18-year old daughter to embark on her journey as a yoga teacher. I found the course excellent value for money: The accommodation is basic but decent; the food is simple but healthy; the lessons are informative and interesting and – most importantly – the teaching staff is very knowledgeable professional and caring. A special thank you to Omkar for being utmost professional and injecting humour into the classes.” (Clare, Mishref, Kuwait)


“The teachers are very well educated. They give us deep insight in the yoga history, philosophy and the practise of yoga. Their quality as teachers is very high. As a student I feel carried to the process and they try to challenge you.” (Mireille, Krommenie, Netherlands)


“I would like to express my appreciation to all the teachers of the Arhanta yoga teacher training course for all your contribution, dedication and discipline which makes this course very professional. All the challenges we have been through this course made us stronger and more confident and ready to move on. I thank you for giving us this opportunity.” (Mimoza, Kosovo)


"I am really pleased to have chosen to do this teacher training course here in the Netherlands, I’ve enjoyed the food, the people and learnt a lot in the month that I have been here. The teachers were all really knowledgeable and cared genuinely for each student. I also liked the fact that they spoke openly about their mistakes when they first started teaching which is reassuring and comforting to know that it’s a growing process for everyone and you can only get better through hard work, dedication and experience. What I found interesting was the extra information and life lessons I received which will help me in my future endeavours. A really positive and growing experience." (Michaela, Gabarone, Botswana)

“Personally, I liked the structure a lot. It creates an easy opening to enter my inner space. All subjects were taught so well in a very positive and good constructive way. I also learned so much of the attitude of the staff, always being clear, friendly and without getting personally involved. I see this as a very stable form of freedom, which was very inspiring for me. In all the subjects, there was so much to learn. I liked that very much. I liked the humour, the challenging parts, the confrontations with my personal growing process and I really got some important insights. This made it possible for me to accept myself and being patient during my own practise. Thank you all. I’m feel so confident about how to teach yoga and I’m looking forward to open the doors of my yoga centre, connecting yoga with my others activities.” (Mignon, Kerkrade, Netherlands)


“I have enjoyed the past 4 weeks of Arhanta yoga teacher training very much, both mentally as physically. The content of the classes was very good. A good course offered by very good teachers. The tight schedule was required to reach to this result. I have not learned a very good foundation and I am sure this will help me grow further. This course requires 100% motivation. You have to focus only on this. I am very happy and satisfied, thanks to the teachers and volunteers.” (Monique, Valkenswaard, Netherlands)


“Overall, I really enjoy the program. The schedule and courses are well-arranged, the diet is natural, simple but delicious and the ashram surroundings are peaceful. The yoga approach is progressive with discipline and patience. The teachers here are of high quality and they themselves compose a good balance. For the how to teach Kalyani gives clear and organized advice. Omkar, with a great sense of humour, makes strength and balance training not that intimidating (he often pushes a little bit the limit, which I appreciate a lot). For the philosophy classes, Ram is very illustrative, down-to-earth and always responds to the questions with clarity. I like very much his approach, apprehensive but without trying to preach everything. And the volunteers make the program run smoothly and always provide us with patient help. And it was a great change to see how different people approach yoga. I want to thank Arhanta for this great experience and hope I will make the ATTC in India later.” (Dreama, Shanghai, China)


“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Arhanta Ashram. The standard of teaching has been extremely high and all the staff have been amazing, treating us all with the upmost professionalism and compassion. Whilst the course is challenging, the inspiration provided by our teachers made me feel I was capable of achieving my goal. I am so pleased to have had this opportunity and I will treasure the memories forever.” (Gill, Liverpool, UK)


“The training at Arhanta is very well structured. Because you are here for 4 weeks, you can focus completely on the training. Therefore you can learn so much in a short time. The quality of all the classes is very high. All the teaching aspects are excellent. The yoga philosophy is explained in a very clear and understandable manner. This allows you to understand what it is truly all about. During the asana classes we are guided in a very well manner in improving our own practice. It’s a complete and valuable course.” (Hellen, Dirksland, Netherlands)


“Teachers are very professional and they have good technique to help students go deeper into their practice of asana. I find ‘how to teach’ class extremely useful because you grow step by step in a whole process to get more confidence in teaching and in how to give a proper yoga lesson. I have learnt a lot in terms of technique, theory and practise in only 1 month.” (Hue, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam)


“A lifetime experience. Coming together with a group of 27 people from all over the world. We grew tight together; we went through a lot of emotions and a lot of genuine hugs and kisses. The ‘how to teach’ classes were extremely professional and we all started to love Omkar. Thank you Arhanta. Can’t wait to send my daughter next year.” (Karin, Swinse, Netherlands)


“I choose this yoga teacher certification program because it’s very complete. You learn philosophy, anatomy, how to teach, asanas, diet... The course has a very strict schedule, but thanks to that we are now stronger. After the training you are more confident and you can teach in a very good way. The teachers are very professional and take good care for the students. Thank you.” (Maria, La Bisbal D’Emponda, Spain)


“This last month has been a fantastic learning experience. A good combination of how to teach classes, philosophy, anatomy and asana class gave me a better understanding of yoga and made me extra focused to work towards my goals. The Arhanta Ashram is the perfect environment to take a step back from everyday life and dedicate yourself to something you want. The food was good, beautiful green surroundings and living together with 26 others who all came with their own motivation was wonderful. I highly enjoyed the satsang and am happy I have chosen this course knowing it has given me a good base to start from.” (Tessa, Laren, Netherlands)


"I am so happy that I’ve made the decision to come here. What an experience. I think I’m going to cherish this for the rest of my life. I’ve learned so many things which can be used as tools for the rest of my life. Especially philosophy gave answers to me on questions I have for already so many years. Recommendation for everybody!" (Toermalijn, Netherlands)


"I’m really happy that I did the course. The food and accommodation were very good. The teachers are super clear, the best teachers I have had so far. Funny, wise, experienced, nice, and they give the classes with examples and stories (which is good for my dyslexia). We can always ask things. The place is amazing, quiet, nature, you smell the plants in the air. The lessons (information what we get) I really liked. Structured, lots of deep information, singing, meditation practice, and at the same time learning. We learned hard this month but we had everyday also some time for relaxation. I think that is very important. I’m glad to have this experience. The time flew by this month! Thank you for this nice, developing month." (Nienke, De Bilt, Netherlands)


"The teacher training course was really nice. I got the opportunity to experience yoga in a different way. Beside the asanas you simply learn to live it more completely through these 4 weeks. A lot of background knowledge and structure guided everyone of us through the course. All teachers are very competent complementing each other in a very calm way. I will remember the time in the ashram with its awesome scenery in a very positive way." (Kim, Munich, Germany)


"Thank you very much! I experienced the course as being very professional and of high quality! It covers all important parts of teaching yoga and even more than that! I loved the beautiful simple ashram and the basic healthy food as well. The group of people were very warm and special and the teachers professional and funny. Great!" (Josephine, Netherlands)


"Very nice atmosphere. Great teachers, interested in teaching well, learned very much. I loved the asana class, appreciation and motivation was very good. Philosophy was a nice impulse to think about. How to teach was hard but so helpful in learning how to teach because of the practical practice. Thank you for this beautiful time here!" (Bianca, Stuttgart, Germany)


"I came to this course with my arms wide open to whatever would happen. After a month in the ashram the gained knowledge and confidence are extremely wide compared to my expectations before starting. Apart from detoxifying from the ‘real world’, the structure is so well planned and logically introduced. The teachers are wise, caring and professional and wonderful people. Thank you! Philosophy lectures by Ram act as a true life coaching as well! I’m truly grateful! Om Shanti." (Elizabeth, Lanzarote, Spain)


"It’s difficult to say in words, it’s just a feeling. Perhaps just saying I’m happy and I loved it. You will be hearing from me. All the best. A huge from the heart to you all. Thank you! Blessings!" (Myrthe, Vlissingen, Netherlands)


"It’s a super professional course and ensures maximum outcome of all learning. One’s boundaries are constantly pushed with kind help from all the staff. It is constant development delivered with humor, wisdom and great professionalism. The environment that is created supports all aspects of the training and it feels like every teacher and staff gives their outmost effort to help, support, guide, correct, motivate and make you feel comfortable. I can only give my highest recommendations!" (Simone, Copenhagen, Denmark)


“This yoga certification course has ended up to be so much more than I expected. Not only do I feel comfortable and confident to teach but I have also grown mentally, physically and spiritually. There has been such a wealth of knowledge shared and the structure of the course and the competence of the teachers has allowed me to absorb so much more information. I am certain that this experience will change my life in a very positive way and I am very grateful to Arhanta Yoga for their excellent guidance and support. Thank you!” Alexa, South Africa


“The set up of the Arhanta Yoga teacher training course gave me the chance to grow gradually and naturally into the role of a yoga teacher. The team at Arhanta Yoga gave me knowledge and firm practice to feel confident and responsible to teach my own Yoga class. I congratulate them on their method and professionalism and love their dedication, always serious but with a lot of humor as well!” Evelyne, France


“Most amazing experience I have ever had. Each class in the course is challenging. The teachers are very professional and responsible. I really appreciated their effort and attention.” Xufeng, China


"What an amazing experience. I felt very lucky coming here, lucky with the fellow students and with the teachers who are very skilled and carry a good vibe. The program they provide here is extremely solid, has a very good build up and is very efficient. It is a quite heavy and intense program, but it was exactly what I needed. I feel it gave me new insight and I trust I am capable now to teach yoga. It makes me feel a lot of gratitude." Leonie, The Netherlands


"I’m very grateful for having this experience in your ashram. Every teacher has their own qualities and together as a team they are all very professional and caring. I learned more than I could imagine; to be able to teach different kinds of target groups, how to bring variety into your lessons, the background of yoga and its philosophy etc. With all this knowledge I gained more confidence to become closer to my goal. The program is intense, but has a good structure. At the end of the course everything falls into its place. A big thanks to the Arhanta team!" Naomi, The Netherlands


"The Arhanta Ashram is a perfect “hideaway” from distractions of modern life. Complete focus on learning and gaining awareness. Excellent teaching direct from the source! What I value most is the awareness of separation between body, mind and soul." Mario, The Netherlands

Joyce yoga

"It was a very interesting process. I have grown a lot personally and in my practice. I would like to keep studying the philosophy. My interest grew so much that I just want to learn more and how to apply this knowledge in my personal life. It feels very good-looking back 3 weeks ago and see how my personal practice has improved. The teachers are very professional, they took their time to explain us how to teach asanas. My interest in yoga goes beyond the physical body and here we have learned the importance of the philosophy, together with the asanas, the breathing and all the benefits. I am looking forward to teach. I feel ready and positive. I hope to come back soon for my next step." Joyce, Netherlands

Silja yoga

"The Arhanta teacher training course can be recommended to everyone who wants to do a Hatha Yoga teacher training. The curriculum is relevant and the teachers are excellent. Students get a solid teacher training and a chance to deepen their own practice. The ashram is located in a beautiful, peaceful surrounding. It is easier to focus on the course when there are few disturbing “external factors”. Also the experience of living at an ashram gave a feeling of “the real deal”. Living at an ashram was a new experience to me, I liked it and I would really like to do it again." (Silje, Norway)

Rachel yoga

"It was not only a journey of teaching and practicing yoga asanas, it was much more than that. Because of the inspiring vedic philosophy teachings given by Yogi Ram, it also became an intensive 4-week period of self-study, which made me more aware of my goals in life and especially towards my role as a Yoga teacher." Rachel, Netherlands

Kiki yoga

"At the end of my adventure in the Arhanta Yoga Ashram, I am starting a new adventure at home. The past 4 weeks I gained a lot of knowledge, strength, balance and new inspiration. The teachers were inspiring, fun, thoughtful and strict when needed. They gave us a lot of information, support and confidence. The basics are there… now practice in real life. Although our schedule was full from morning until evening, there was always a moment to laugh. In just a few weeks you bond with your fellow students. You help each other out and motivate each other to keep going. A wonderful experience that will guide me further on my own path!"Kiki, Netherlands

Noreen yoga

"This course was recommended to me by a friend who did the same Teacher training course in India. I am very happy with this course. It is a tough course but it is run by a professional team who are dedicated to the job and have a lot of knowledge. I have gained a lot of knowledge and I am looking forward to using this information to improve my own self-practice and way of living (Yam-Niyam) and to give classes to others. " Noreen, Ireland

Jasmine yoga

"It’s amazing how much I have learned in one month. All the teachers are very supportive. Each day I felt encouraged to try something new and was pushed beyond limits I never knew I had. I feel confident leaving Arhanta and ready to teach. Overall it was a challenging but rewarding experience." 
Jasmine, USA

Shallu yoga

"I had a great learning experience during my stay at Arhanta Yoga Ashram. Being away from home and my children for 4 weeks was difficult but definitely worth it! The lectures about yoga philosophy are very interesting and useful. Now after 4 weeks I am ready to teach yoga! Unbelievable but true! All the teachers have a lot of knowledge and are always open for questions. No matter how many you have. The whole program is build up in a very logical way. Well I am just grateful that I had this opportunity to follow this one month intensive course in the Netherlands. It was quite challenging at times, but I learned a lot. Thank you!!" Shallu, Netherlands

kelly yoga

“This course has exceeded my expectations. Every aspect of Yoga is learnt from classical posses to the philosophy behind Yoga. The teachers are really very helpful and cover all the information thoroughly. I think the only pre-requisite is to have a passion for what you are learning about and dedication to achieve it. Highly recommend this course to anyone! I feel like I have learnt enough to fulfill a career in Yoga and also life-long lessons for my personal life.”Kelly, Australia

payton yoga

"The Arhanta Yoga TTC exceeded my expectations in every single direction but more importantly, Arhanta helped me to exceed my own expectations of myself. Before the course I was really attracted to the idea of a personal reinvention. Part of me really wanted to be able to go into the ashram and come out as an entirely different person. However, as the days and weeks went by, I quickly realized that I never needed to become a new person. Arhanta gave me the tool and instructions I needed to see myself for what I really am and discover my potential. It was like going to the grocery store with a recipe but then realizing that I have all the ingredients at home, I just never had anyone to teach me how to use them. Between the philosophy, the personal asan practice, the teaching lessons, meditation and structure, I feel that I have outgrown myself in both roots and branches over the last four weeks. My advice to anyone who is planning on allowing Arhanta to be a part of their personal journey of growth and discovery is to bring a journal to record the special moments on your path, be the best version of yourself, leave your expectations behind, trust the process, and realize that as a family, we are all students of yoga and we are all students of life. Thank you for everything Kalyani & Ram." Payton, USA


"I don’t even know where to begin. I have learned so much in the last few weeks! I came with a vague idea wanting to learn more about yoga and somehow see if I can make this my profession in the near future. The first weeks were overwhelming in information, adapting to the schedule and really believing I could actually master the required skills to teach. After almost completing the course I can only be amazed of what I’ve learned from this wonderful team of teachers. If it’s not the knowledge of how to teach, then it would be to get a grasp of the yogic philosophy. And also the incredible grow in my own practice. The headstand is finally something I’ve mastered here and so much more. This course was challenging, difficult to keep up with the pace sometimes, interesting and complete. I don’t regret one single day of being here. I might even come back for the advanced course. Thank you Ram, Kalyani, and Omkar!" Titia, Netherlands


“I am amazed by how much I have learnt in such a short period of time. The quality of teaching exceeded all my expectations. This course has filled me with confidence and I am now really looking forward to building my experience as a yoga teacher. I feel I will be competent at teaching which has really surprised me as I did not think it would be possible to feel this way after such a short time. The teaching really is amazing and it shows that a lot fo effort has gone into making sure the students achieve what they want. Personal attention and encouragement in my asana practice has helped me progress so much and I am really happy with the level I have reached. It installed confidence and self belief in myself which I will carry with me now in my own personal Yoga practice. Thank you all for your help, support and encouragement. I feel I got what I came for and much more!”Claire-Marie, UK

ayla yoga

"I really liked every part of the course. It has been a really nice, interesting experience for me although I know that the real “experience” and growing , everything falling in place and real thing will get clear and settle when I will be home. And I’m really looking forward to that development. That location is great, the people I have met and with who I shared this experience are very beautiful in each their own way. Each so different as they are but because of that just the most the same. All their journeys ages, reasons, situations, insecurities, love, questions and answers. I’m proud and thank full for them all and that this is the place those paths have crossed. The teachers are very professional and so full of knowledge. I’m happy that it was them who has been our guides and teachers these 4 weeks and whatever the future will being I sure can say I will leave here with a great experience and very professional base of knowledge and skills in Yoga and Asanas." Ayla, The Netherlands

Franka yoga

"I have had a great experience at the Arhanta yoga teacher training. I met great people and learned a lot of new things about Yoga and the philosophy. I improved my personal practice a lot and my teaching skills are much better, I really had a great learning experience and would recommend it to anybody who wants to become a teacher or just want to know more about Yoga." Franka, The Netherlands


"First of all you are warm, kind people. There is a lot of knowledge shared with us. At some moments it was a bit too much. However you all kept saying “trust the process” and I think we need to, because we learned so much. At this moment I am nervous about my exam… hopefully I will make it. I love the food, surrounding, teachings and our Saturday night fun with the game. I do not have enough words to thank you all for the wonderful time of 4 weeks at the ashram in Holland. For sure I will come for the 300 hours. And I want to start an Arhanta Yoga studio (First I need to talk with my boyfriend) but I have all the trust in you and Kalyani. Thank you." Naomi, Netherlands

"This is a very intensive course. Be prepared for that. If you are looking for just a quick way of getting your yoga teacher certificate, don’t do this course. But if you are looking for a way to become a good trained yoga teacher or to really improve if you are a yoga teacher already, and on top of that you want to grow in your own practice and on a personal and spiritual level, and if you are ready for a physical, mental and emotional rollercoaster… this is the place to be! It brought me everything I wanted to get out of it and more. Sometimes it was hard but it was worth every minute of it. Ram, Kalyani andOmkar thank you so very much for this experience! It was life changing!" Linda, Netherlands


"This Yoga teacher training course has exceeded my expectations. It was a very complete and intensive teacher training. It improved my own practice and flexibility and I gained a lot of knowledge regarding Yoga philosophy/anatomy/ how to teach etc.The teachers were very professional and capable. In case of questions they were always available.The ashram live was funny sometimes challenging (1 month), submerging in a world of Yoga that allows you to focus and evolve personally and becoming a teacher.I would recommend this TTC to everybody who has desires to become a good Yoga teacher. I personally give my preference  to an intensive one month course than to a 2-3 years Yoga education. Om Shanti" Vanoucka, The Netherlands

nils yoga

The Arhanta Yoga teacher training program is excellent. You really learn how to teach correctly. You get all the tools to give a proper lesson! It’s also very nice that you learn about the history of Yoga. Really knowing the origins helps me in my practice on and off the mat. The classical way of Hatha Yoga really opened my eyes. I feel like I learned from a great teacher of those times. The extra information on starting your Yoga career was also very beneficial. I really know how I want to start, what I want to reach and how I can make that happen." Nils, The Netherlands

angela yoga

"I learned to give a complete international class and I am sure and confident enough to teach all over the world now.The journey was rough at some points but I am grateful to have had the experience of learning Yoga at the Arhanta Yoga Ashram in the Netherlands the way you only get to do in India."

Angela, The Netherlands

"This course has changed my view of life in so many ways. When I came here I was lost and had no idea what I should be doing with my life. I was looking for answers, but I have found so much more than that. I would never have thought that I would want to be a yoga teacher, but I love giving classes so much. The energy after the class is unbelievable. More important is the fact that I feel ready to teach, which I thought was impossible after only 1 month. We have received so much useful information (including how to find a yoga job) and support during these 26 days that I feel confident in myself as a yoga teacher. It was a tough month where you are pushed out of your comfort zone but it is worth it. Such an amazing experience!" Katja, Russia

Kelly yoga

"I really liked the teachers’ approach with us. I’m really glad that Omkar always pushed me out of my comfort zone and encouraged me to keep trying. Living with this group made the experience so special. Thank you so much. A tough experience but I learned so much and feel ready to teach. Thank you." Kelly, Malta

Charlie yoga

"I came to the course to learn how to teach yoga. I go away with so much more. The Arhanta Yoga teacher training course will give you all the tools and resources you need to be a confident Hatha Yoga teacher. We covered a variety of topics to include philosophy, nutrition, anatomy, alignment and Asana practice. I learned skills necessary for a comprehensive yoga class as well as self-confidence in the delivery of those classes. Friendships and laughs were also a part of the month-long course in the ashram. Late night study sessions (chatting sessions) go hand in hand with our daily learning. For me, the most important learning was the self-learning I experienced during the month. I will never forget my time with Arhanta. If you are looking to immerse yourself in Yogic learning and are willing to explore your potential, then this is the course for you." Caroline, Ireland

amanda yoga

"Doing the yoga teacher training course at Arhanta was the best choice I have ever made. In 4 weeks I have grown more than I could ever imagine. It is very intense physically and mentally but it is so worth it. I can teach an open class now with full confidence and didn’t even practiced yoga for 1 year myself. The teachers are very professional and they help you with whatever you are struggling with. Being away from your family for 4 week is hard but time flies here you are getting so much information to digest you almost don’t have time to think about it. So I had a great experience and great lessons in life and teaching. i would do it all again no doubt about it." Amanda, The Netherlands

johanna yoga

"This training is everything which Arhanta Yoga had promised to be. Excellent teachers, very good program. I have studied philosophy (Western at academic level) and I can say that the philosophy Yogi Ram teaches reaches a similar level, very interesting, very enriching. The program is full but also tight. There is not much time for study because in the evenings you are tired of the full day program. The asanas classes are brilliant very motivating. The staff is very helpful and try to provide you with information as much and best way they can. This is the best training course I have had. Four weeks fly but the seed which is planted has found a definite ground. Thank you" Johanna, Belgium

maria yoga

"I arrived with my arms wide open to the experience. I didn’t know what was about to happen. Finally I have found a challenging course, where every day you learn more and more. Every day I had to push myself and break my fears. I have improved in my teaching skills and I definitely think I m ready to teach yoga to share the love I feel for it. Now I am starting a new period in my life with a wide knowledge about yoga and about myself." Maria, Spain

Tanja yoga

"When I came here, I came for my personal development. The course really was the last thing I wanted to do after a sad period. I wanted to experience how it was when I was not in charge. I wanted to feel my real self, develop my female side more and show more vulnerability. That was always difficult for me. The course helped me to open these sides of me. And… I am embracing it! Ego went down, feelings became stronger, I cried, and… it felt good… it was a relief. I didn’t know if I could be a teacher (yoga teacher) because I want to be sure that the lessons will be professional and well taught. 4 weeks of practice gave me enough trust that I can teach. After this course I have the faith that something will cross my path and that one day I will teach! My self-image, after this course is more complete. I knew I am good with/in groups, but I learned how to be vulnerable and to leave matters where they are. I can let things go now! I met some beautiful people! The friendships will definitely last because we shared a special memory. Thank you!" Tanja, Netherlands

helena yoga

"Amazing experience!! This training is not for those people who only want to do asanas! Be prepared to go back to school and enjoy all the lectures about body mind and soul (+more!). I really enjoyed every moment of the yoga teacher training. I left with lot of new tools that I can use rest of my life! “New thoughts, New directions” Helena, Denmark

megan yoga

"During my month here my personal practice has really grown. I am inspired to push myself further and develop my own regular practice of meditation and yoga asanas. I arrived being unsure of whether or not I was good enough to teach, or if even wanted to. Now I am dreaming of where I can teach yoga classes. I feel confident in my ability and perhaps will even open my own yoga studio someday. I was pleasantly surprised by the holistic view of yoga given throughout the yoga teacher training program. I have gained much knowledge in the areas of personal yoga practice, meditation, philosophy, teaching and business: a much wider range of knowledge than I expected, thank you." Megan, USA

Roberta1 yoga

"Every journey is a beginning towards something new. Here I have understood that the "destination" of this journey is and will be always in myself. I have found “a lot of "destinations" here, in this beautiful experience. I discovered the here and now. I have freed the mind from judgments, from "I cannot" from "others are better than me". I have discovered new feelings and emotions and developed a calm instinct. Thank you teachers." Roberta, Italy

lizzy yoga

"The Arhanta TTC really delivers on a full ashram experience an authentic classical training. The course material is genuine and loyal to the classical Hatha yoga practice. I feel now I can return home to teach and live as a true yogi in all areas of my life. The Arhanta network of support extends far after training and the friendships forged here will last a life time. Looking back as when I arrived, I cannot believe how much I have learnt, it takes dedication and discipline but if you want to really push yourselves with teachers who really care about you, Arhanta is the place for you. I can’t imagine a better way to embark on my journey as a yoga teacher." Liz Wiener, USA

"It was a very inspiring time at Arhanta. The classes were highly interesting, I improved spiritually and physically like I never did before.."

Lea Frings, Germany

adriana yoga

"I loved to have the opportunity to approach to the ancient knowledge of Vedas to understand better about spirituality. The early morning meditation and concentration with the sound of meditation bowls surrounded with the nature was great. I want to thank all the teachers for the interesting lessons in Ayurveda, Bhagvad Gita, Kriyas, philosophy, asanas and teaching yoga. Om shanti!" Adriana, Germany

petra yoga

“I finished the Hatha yoga teacher training in India at Arhanta Yoga ashram, it is definitely a "once in a lifetime" experience. Yogi Ram is a very calm, professional teacher, clear and sincere and with a lot of patience. All the other teachers are also very knowledgeable, they know how to get the best out of each and every one of us. In short: a great team of teachers! All of them very positive and professional people who really want you to succeed and reach your goals. I have learned so much, thank you all very much!” Petra, The Netherlands

zuzana yoga

“I have loved every minute of this yoga teacher training course. The course is very challenging, in a very good way and that is what I came here for. I have learned a lot about Yoga, as of philosophy, classical Hatha yoga asanas and meditation. I think my life will never be the same after this course. I have also met amazing people here including the teachers, all very professional. Love India – Love this course – Love Yoga!” Zuzana, Czech Republic

kristin yoga

"Arhanta gave me a great life experience and an uncountable number of life lessons which have helped me grow as a person. I know when I go home I will be a much more positive, thoughtful and happy person, thanks to the yoga teachings, the lifestyle I adopted while here, the wonderful teachers who both inspired me and became my friends, and the amazing people who also traveled here to share this experience. I will never forget my time here or what is has done for me." Kristin, USA


"The month spent at the Arhanta Yoga Teacher Training pushed me mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. It was difficult but I can certainly see its worth. I feel my skills, knowledge and abilities have made steady progress and I am inspired to bring what I have learned here into my daily life. This course has taught me a lot about determination, perseverance, devotion and the Path of Yoga as a way of life. I am grateful for the teachers and the knowledge and skills learned here. I will never forget the month I spent here and feel it is a catalyst for positive change in my life. I look forward to developing my practice and teaching abilities further from the strong foundation Arhanta has provided." Rebecca, Canada

"Yes, it was tough. Yes, it was draining. And yes, I would do it again. I have never learned so much about myself, my limits, and my Yoga practice. This course has made me confident enough to teach anyone safely and correctly. Great people, great experience. I am so happy I chose do this and I am proud of the amazing progress I made throughout this journey." Emilie, Canada

"I feel I have developed as a teacher above and beyond what I had expected. I now have a very solid knowledge – base with which I can start teaching Yoga. The teaching process at the Arhanta Ashram is intense, as there is a vast amount of information, yet the style makes the teaching thorough and complete. Overall it was an incredibly challenging, but rewarding experience." Sarah, Ireland

michelle yoga

"I am leaving this course SO unbelievably excited! I have been so overwhelmed by the high standard of teaching, invaluable and enjoyable content of the course as well as my own personal development in all paths of Yoga. I cannot thank Arhanta enough. It is one roller coaster ride of a month but I have the confidence now to follow my dream career and feel very realistic about how I can and will make it happen. I recommend this course to anyone who has a real love for Yoga and serious intentions to teach. This isn’t a holiday!" Michelle, UK

winsome yoga

"The education I received from Yogi Ram at the Arhanta Yoga Ashram completely surpassed all the expectations I had prior to my arrival. I came to India seeking an authentic experience and education, curious to learn about the spiritual motives influencing “Westernized Yoga” back in the States and I am leaving with a new-found respect for Classical Hatha Yoga. Through his teachings and clear guidance it became apparent that Yogi Ram’s wisdom on Vedic Philosophy was obtained through direct experience and a dedicated practice. The living conditions here in India define “simplistic”, but they strengthened my character and humbled me in ways I could never have anticipated. I would recommend the Arhanta Yoga Teacher Training Course to anyone seeking a solid TTC. I’m returning to Wyoming with the confidence to teach Hatha Yoga to anyone interested in learning and a clear vision of where my future is headed." Winsome Williams, USA

lydia yoga

"The Arhanta Yoga Teacher Training was an incredible experience. If you are looking for a challenge and to be pushed to your extreme limits, physically, mentally and emotionally, then I definitely recommend it. The schedule is intense and the days are long but the standard of teaching makes that worth it. I feel my practice has improved greatly and I will be returning home with the confidence of knowing I can teach. I have had to break many boundaries throughout my time here but I was surrounded by wonderful people who were sharing the experience with me and I have made friends I will have forever." Lydia, Ireland

roza yoga

"Being young and having never traveled alone before, together with being unsure if I truly had enough Yoga experience, I was a little apprehensive about joining the Yoga TTC. On arrival however I was met only by welcoming and friendly teachers and students alike. Yogi Ram and all the teachers openly shared their vast knowledge both during and outside of class times and I have gained more knowledge, experience and confidence than I could have imagined. I now feel excited and ready to begin my journey to bring Yoga into my own and other’s lives." Roza, USA

martina yoga

"This program allowed for very rapid growth in personal practice and teaching skills. I’ve definitely learn a good deal about myself and feel that I have a brand new outlook on life. I came here as a beginner and without much prior knowledge on Yoga and it’s philosophy and I am very grateful for everything I have learned." Martina, USA

victoria yoga

"The quality of teaching on the course totally surpassed my expectations. My personal practice has improved massively and I also have a very good understanding of how some of the advanced postures work (even though I haven’t yet mastered them myself). I’m confident that I could go home and begin a career as a Yoga teacher as well as continuing to improve my own practice. The schedule has felt grueling at times but the group of students here have been amazing and I’ve received so much fund and support from them. I’ve definitely made some new friends for life." Victoria, UK

nadieh yoga

"It was a great course. I had to work hard but I got so much back for it. I really feel that I’ve learned enough to start teaching at home. Everything that you get here is simplistic; the food and your room. You have to be prepared for that. It also makes you grateful for the things you have at home, which is a pretty good thing." Nadieh, The Netherlands

lara yoga

"Very intense month! I chose Arhanta Yoga because I found the curriculum very complete and it did not disappoint me. Philosophy lectures and insights were extremely interesting and they were always explained in a very clear way. Yoga classes and teaching practice were demanding and teachers kept pushing us through, which was essential for our growth in the limited period of time of 1 month. Best asana classes I have ever had! I also enjoyed the excursions and the time spent in the temple chanting, since they provide you with the opportunity to come in touch with other aspects of the culture out of study time. It was a precious experience that I had dreamt of for a long time, and that I am sure will stay with me forever". Lara, Spain

carol yoga

"My time at Arhanta Yoga Teacher Training Course has given me many opportunities. I believe the teachers were well-balanced as a team. The course content was well structured. I learned a lot of new concepts as well as the continued practice of similar ideas and beliefs. I believe I can come away from the TTC with the confidence and ability to teach asana classes on my return to my home as well as the possibilities to go even further and build a complete business and lifestyle around the Five Points of Yoga. I was encouraged to remember my vision for the future and was given measurable goals to attain that vision. I am very excited about this vision. I also met many new friends through my fellow students, many of whom I will continue lasting friendships with". Carol, USA

laura yoga

"I would like to thank my teachers because during this month here they taught me many things. The first two weeks have been really hard and stressing. I did not expect such an intense work, physically and emotionally. However, every day I felt motivated and encouraged by my teachers and I did my best to follow the pace. The asana lessons have been amazing and even if I struggled a lot. I can tell I have improved my practice very much and learnt a lot of new things about my physical as well as spiritual strength. I am glad I came!" Laura de Felicis, Italy

sawmte yoga

"I have never attended Yoga classes before coming here, and I don’t have any teaching skills or background. I always had stage freight and considering to become a Yoga teacher was a big challenge for me. After working in the airline industry for more than 10 years I realized that there is no growth and decided to quit my job and become a Yoga teacher, against all odds. Here with the help of my dedicated teachers, I have come out of the shell and made the impossible – possible. My teachers have given me tremendous support during the entire course. Today I became a Yoga teacher and I learnt that “Where there is a will there is a way.” It was a life changing experience. Sawmte, India

anneli yoga

"I really enjoyed my time here. Teachers were very nice and caring. I have practiced Yoga for about five years but I was not ready to teach it. Now after this course I have confidence in my own practice and I feel I have the knowledge and I am ready to teach other now. Thank you Arhanta for this wonderful experience and the knowledge you gave me." Anneli Naarits, Estonia

Anita yoga

"I feel the course is very nice, the teachers are attentive and the content of the course is extremely good. I wish Arhanta Yoga can have classes in Indonesia soon". Anita, Indonesia


"This was the second time I came to Arhanta India, the second time an amazing and strong experience! The environment and the great team of teachers guaranteed me to reach my goals. I got the opportunity to learn more, become an advanced yoga teacher, experiment deep meditation and get close to my true self. One month time to learn more about teachings, philosophy, different techniques of concentration and meditation, ayurveda and most important I gave myself the right time in this beautiful, peaceful place to stop from daily life and take a long deep breath of fresh energy! I highly recommend this 300 hours yoga teacher training not only to teachers but to everybody who wants to improve their practice or take time to grow as a human being." (Lucia, Italy)


"Amazing course!! it was a nice and warm welcome when we got picked up at the airport. On arrival at the ashram there was a nice and joyful atmosphere. From the first day of the course it was hard-working and strict with discipline. After 2 weeks it became a little bit easier. The place is really beautiful and they make it often better. The people from Arhanta yoga ashram are warm and friendly. They help you through everything; the only thing you have to do is hard-working and overcome yourself. I’m thankful to the Arhanta yoga teacher training, it made me a better all round yoga teacher. Namaste." (Jasper, Netherlands)


"When signing up for this TTC I just wanted a break from my life, time for myself and time to detoxify. Also of course I wanted to work on my Yoga practice and wanted to become a Yoga teacher. However I received so much more than just exercise classes. I learned so much about life and why I am the way I am. I feel much lighter and more optimistic about life a much more confident in my Yoga practice". Amanda, USA


"The course was very good. Yogi Ram is an excellent teacher. His knowledge and professionalism were above expectations! I highly recommend this course to anybody who wants to become a Yoga teacher!" Beatriz, USA


"After reading so many positive Arhanta Yoga Ashram reviews I decided to come here. I learned a lot more at Arhanta than I would ever had expected to. My practice deepened immensely as did my knowledge on what yoga truly is and all of the aspects that surround it. I learnt a lot about myself, and I found that my mind is much clearer now. The teachers are all wonderful and very knowledgeable, on their subjects. I am more than satisfied with what has come out of my experience while staying and studying here. I am extremely grateful that I chose to come here and the opportunity I was given. Now I look forward to pass the knowledge I have acquired on to others, thank you." Ashleigh , USA


"I really enjoyed my experience at Arhanta Yoga. The teachers were professional and patient. The “no frills” environment of being in an ashram enabled me to focus on my goal of becoming a certified yoga teacher." K.Ditty, Canada


"It was a very intensive month with little time for myself but I can say it was a great experience. Now I have a better understanding of what Yoga means and I can’t wait to learn more. I really enjoyed all the philosophy classes and I am glad I tried to keep an open mind while hearing about new concepts and perceptions. Really useful were the pranayama and meditation / concentration classes as well; at first it was difficult to sit crossed legs for long period but it got easier and easier and I had chance to truly enjoy these practices." Georgia, USA


"This is a course that maintains a 100% commitment to developing excellent Yoga teachers. Before the course, I was unsure whether I had the ability to become a good yoga teacher, but I leave Arhanta with confidence in my ability to pass on the knowledge I have gained during this relatively short time. From philosophy and meditation to the practical teachings of Asana, thanks to the consistent dedication of the teachers here, I have learned more than I ever expected and leave with a deep understanding of Yoga and inspired to develop my career with it." Geoff, UK


"Thinking back on my time, doing the Arhanta Yoga Teacher Training Course in India, I have to recognize that it was one of the most influencing phases in my life. Each of us had to face ups and downs and it was not always easy. However I am convinced that most of us will realize the major par of all the various positive effects when we are back in our daily lives. I want to thank each single member of the Arhanta Yoga staff and especially the main teacher Yogi Ram for contributing to this exceptional experience."Lennart, Germany


"When I decide to do my teacher training in Yoga I didn’t have any experience in yoga. I am a fitness instructor and I wanted to do it for myself and not for any job. I decided it is better to go to the source and not to be mislead doing it back home. I chose this course of a very full curriculum, so basically starting from nothing being completely virgin in my mind. I made a lots of discoveries, at the beginning yoga was for me was just a way to exercise. Here I discovered the philosophy aspects of it and how deep it is. In one month here I learnt more than I could learn in Europe in many years. Offcourse it is just the beginning of my path, there are unlimited questions that I will look the answers for, but I am extremely happy that doing this course made me ask these questions and have so many discoveries of myself and the world around me." Anna, Russia


"I had been practicing Yoga on and off for five years before I came here and I can truly say I never learnt so much as I did in these for weeks. The how-to-teach class was really intense but thorough and I feel confident about going home and beginning to teach yoga. The philosophy class was well taught and structured and has given a totally new angle to access Yoga. On a personal level my practice improved enormously and I have really enjoyed taking this month to develop my skills and knowledge." Elisabeth, Ireland


"Before coming to India for the Arhanta yoga teacher training, I haven’t practiced Yoga for long. After reading Arhanta Yoga ashram India reviews I decided to come here. The result was a tremendous improvement I my practice, thanks to amazing teachers. The program gave me the autonomy and self-confidence I needed to practice Yoga by my own. It was also a great experience by meeting new people and learning more about myself." Florence, France


"The Yoga teacher training course has been a very intensive and positive experience for me. First, I really liked being at this peaceful place, surrounded by nature and fresh air. The structured days full of interesting new inputs, the basic lifestyle, the daily yoga practice as well as the inspiration of the Vedic philosophy led me to find inner peace, new energy and anew ideas for the future. I improved a lot in my Yoga practice and feel ready to realize the dream to become a Yoga teacher. The course is well-organized, interesting and includes a lot of praxis-oriented aspects but also insights of the Vedic philosophy and culture. I can recommend it to everyone who is motivated and determined to become a Yoga teacher or who wants to have an unforgettable experience." Nina Kass, Luxembourg


"200 hours in less than four weeks is doable, but it requires full attention and engagement. If you’re ready for this you will experience an incredible development. The ashram itself is in a beautiful surrounding. The buildings are simple but functional. The staff are very supportive in a really personal way. However, they expect you to respect the rules and behave properly. This experience showed me once again: if you want to succeed and you get the right environment you will achieve your goals." Claudia, Scotland


"My expectations were more than met. A very well-structured course brought me in less than a month exactly where I expected to be. Although I originally only planned to improve my lifestyle posture and stay healthy in body and mind, I learned to like teaching more and more, as the course went on. Now I have reached a point where I would love to share my newly gained knowledge with others in need. I can sincerely recommend it to anybody who considers becoming a yoga teacher." Kurt, Austria


"This course has been absolutely amazing. The staff are all friendly and help where they can. The teachers are fantastic, they pass on a lot of information and have each student's best interest at heart. They are always available for any questions or concerns you may have. We have also been encouraged to go beyond what we thought our limits may be. Absolutely one of the best things I have done is coming here. You feel like you are part of the family as soon as you arrive, thank you so much!" Holly, Australia
