Student reviews

Yoga teacher training India Barbara“I came here to Arhanta Yoga with an open mind and no idea what will come. It was 4 weeks full of intensive, hard, emotional, great, strengthening and fantastic work with the group, with the teachers and with myself. I have no regrets and I am still thankful and happy that I was allowed to learn from such good teachers in this wonderful area. Now I am looking forward to teach my yoga class. Thank you very much to the entire Arhanta team, I wish you all the best.” Barbara, Austria

Hatha yoga teacher training India Irfan“I really liked this course and especially the teachers, they are extremely talented. The ashram has a really nice location in a remote area apart from the chaos of the city which makes this ashram a quiet, calm and positive place to live in. The food in the ashram is really healthy and clean. I would recommend anyone who is serious in learning yoga and wants to lead his or her life in a positive way to come here and experience it. Thank you so much Arhanta for such an amazing time. I will be here again in my near future.” Irfan, India

Hatha Yoga training India Nina“The weeks in the ashram have been a real life journey to me. Besides the great yoga asana classes, the serene meditation sessions and positive morning chantings, it gave me something more: the realization of missing a vision of life. By sharing their own stories, teaching me the philosophy of yoga and their personal advise Ram and his team not only helped me realize my personal goal of becoming a yoga teacher. They also challenged me to take a look inside, discover “Who am I”. And that journey has just started. Thank you all!” Nina, The Netherlands

“This course has taught me a lot about yoga and how to teach asana classes. The program is very full but gives the right amount of information you need to become a teacher. I developed a lot of qualities during my stay. I’m very grateful for that. Although it is hard, it is worth it!” Michiel, The Netherlands
