Half a year ago, I figured out that wanted to do some yoga teacher training. I googled my way and found bookyogaretreat.com . My points of criteria were place, price, testimonials and teachers. My doubt choice were between 2 schools and the result is now ending the course at Akshi Yogashala. There are always expectations and wishes on for hand by giving feedback. You can express feelings towards your experience. I can create a whole story about it, out just want it to keep it briefly. I have learned a lot and that’s one of my main purpose here learning comes with teaching, group and interaction. I just going to mention my experience in points..
- Good Food- Beautiful location - Great teachers- Airy and clean rooms- Good Wi-Fi Connection

The most useful things I found about training were classes on meditation on yog nidra and pranayama, through that we came to know how important is breathing in yoga, I think adjustment&alignment and yogic philosophy are also the most useful things we could learn here. Teaching was good, all the teachers have some special qualities, all of them brought something special to the course, and they were friendly and patient and also had a love for traditional yoga. Their personalities suites their teachings and roles perfectly, swami atma made us feel to have faith towards authentic yogic style, I thing the all teacher were good.

I had a wonderful experience with the teachers from AKshi Yogashala. They are all extreme knowledgeable on all subjects and took the time to meet each student where they are at. Ashish ji enthusiastic was a wonderful thing to have for class in the morning. He showed us each how to have discipline and motivation Ranjot ji has a such a beautiful way of discussing philosophy and anatomy You can tell he is very passionate about everything. When he is teaching and he takes time to make sure everyone is understanding. I learned alot form hi and I am very grateful for the time taken to sit and talk with me about things coming up for me during the month. Sandeep ji was a pure delight as well. The positive energy and warm smiles from him, each day was a lifting attribute. Each one of the teachers had this incredibly warm and compassionate smile and made sure to let us know we could come to them anytime as we are all living under the same roof and made sure to always be available. The Pranayama and meditation lessons from sandeep were very great, learning through experiencing the benefits first hand. Asana practice and adjustments were incredibly informative. The teachers took time for each student to make sure we took care of our bodies and understanding proper safety when adjusting students as well ourselves. The Yoga Anatomy lessons were beneficial to gain a greater understanding of our bodies in relation to the poses. Mantra class with Tanushree ji was one of my favourite. Her voice is beautiful and she also has a wonderfully positive energy as well. I am leaving with some great knowledge and experience and only wishing I could stay to learn more, as I a feeling teachers like this don’t come around often. Thank you for everything, for believing in me and showing me compassion and understand.

Thank you for offering the 200hrs Yoga Teacher Training in Nepal, otherwiswe I would not be here in this amazing course. My purpose for joining this course is to understand more about myself, my body & my mind. In this 1 month I learned alot not only the subjects that we have taken. What is more important is that I have grown up a lot with this course. I try to attend all classes as possible , try to do my best to follow the teachers teaching. At the beginning of the course it was quite hard for me as i did not do ever classes in my daily life. I could not do a lot of asana which admire day by day practise and the patience of the teachers make me how be able to get into the asanas, It still takes long time to practice and to grow up.Generally the course is amazing. Teachers are professional land they are willing to share their own time after class especially Ranjot ji; he spent every night to discuss with students about their teaching plan in the last two weeks. He also come to other class to observes the students then he will make arrangement of the class to teach what the students need. My stay and accommodation was very nice. The course is good & I wish to join other similar course in the future. Thank you Namaste!!

Overall the training was very high standard. Ranjot ji is very knowlegeble and experienced teacher. I learnt a lot from him. I couldn’t do unsupported head stand before coming here and he showed me a technique to do this. I really enjoyed Ashish ji class. His energy and personality is very vibrant and he is good in motivating me. I enjoyed very much his adjustment classes . He makes the poses look easy and make me think it’s possible in my mind to do it. Then I try and managed to go further than i thought i would. Sandeep ji has a beautiful and warm personality. I just enjoy being in his company. I will miss the energy of teachers and it was a tough schedule and overall my impression are that it was excellent yoga teacher training course because the teachers are an experienced , professional and really care about the students. Thank you all the teachers, I will miss your energy and your support.

During the training course I have improved my practise, also imprived my teaching method. Alighmnet and adjustment classes and Mantra singing with Tanu ji were actually overhelming. All the teachers were great. Balance of lecture and experiential learning both are important and must be carried out in balance. Though I personally feel for me experiential knowlegeble or learning goes more well. Food and accommodation is good. Staff are very helpful.
Jessica Brouté (France)
The asana and alighmnet , pranyama, anatomy, ayurveda, meditation, philosophy and i really enjoyed matra so...off of them. Tha asana teachers were both amazing.!! The mantra teachers was perfect for the mantras and really usefull for the meditation. The pranayama teaching is full of energy, really precise and the balance with practice and explanation was well done. I really enjoy the ayurveda teachers classes, really precise and clear . I would love to have more asana’s lesson with these teachers but i know that it is hard to put more on the shedu;le. I really appreciated & learnt a looooooooooott!! Food was great.
This has been a great learning experience for me. Alots of things I knew before but after coming here I was able to understand those things. I knew Yoga is good for us but why yoga is good that understating I got here. Learning the Asana and Anatomy was the best part of training for me. I feel to live blessed by having such an amazing group of teachers. Every teacher was very knowledgeable about their subject. Every time I asked question, It was answered and was properly explained. Whenever I was not able to do any asana, I got full support from the teachers. I can do so much was discovered by me with the help of our great teachers. Jitender Ji is an absolutely great teacher, he will keep correcting you until you get it right. My stay was very comfortable, food was great, kitchen staff was amazing, many thanks to them.

Kristina Hlavicova (Czech Republic)
I got a really good foundation for my future practice, Also i git here a good motivation to change something and habits in my life, complexity of information was very useful- not only asana , we learned everything in context. All the teachers were excellent and professionals!! I admire Vivek ji for his great knowledge and ability to explain complicated things simply. I really like Jitender ji passion for learing and ability to explain with yoga and ability to give us good advices how to do asana properly and how to prepare our body. I also liked ashish ji lesson. Through ALigjment & adjustment I understood how to do asanas or what mistake i do. Balance was perfect . I am really glad to gain complex information. I am happy for my decision to quit my job and come to India. I don;t think that my life will rapidly change, but I hope I will be able to keep the peace and love in my heart for the whole life. Food was good. Many Thanks to Kitchen staff!!

Everthing is usefull! I thought I knew more about yoga before this course than i actually did. It has been incredibly insightful, very well organised qnd such a fantastic experience all around. The ingsight into yoga philosophy and meditation was particulary helpful for me, as my knowledge in these areas was limlited.
I have developed a greater ability to let go. Finally, there was so much to learn, which was amazing to be expose to so many new teachings in such a short space of time. All the teachers (knowledgeable, dedicated and commited) plus teachings were very interesting. Anatomy was quite challenging for me but teacher was very lovely. Every single class help me. I have enjoyed the experience.
I found most usefull the quality of most of the teachers, hatha, pranayama and ashtanga. My Best teacher of the course is ashtanga teacher. All other teacher Hatha, pranayama, philosophy, mantra, purification, ayurveda, meditation and alighment are also very good. The balance was perfect between lecture vs. Practical. My stay was good. The food was good, execellent teachers, beautiful school and amazing landscape.

During the course asana classes and pranayama were true eye opener. The course was very intense, which was good. The practical teaching, all of them were great (especially pandey ji). As they just brought all of us outside of our comfort zones and put we back in shape. The Theoretical classes were good. I loved the space and the facilities. Food in general was very good and well planned. I loved every minute of this course. It certainly changed my life. You can tell all the teachers have a lot of knowledge in their field so it is a massive amount of information inputs. Thank you guys for all your support.-

The complete 200 hours yoga teachers training program had been a soul soothing for us. Besides the knowledge of the different aspects of yoga, we gained wisdom, and the knowledge of the Indian culture, which was equally great. In the complete program, we had a learning as well as fun and adventure and we made a lot of friends too.
The Most useful thing know how to mediate and get into the situation quickly. Teachers gave us lot if techniques. E.g. chanting mantra first and then do meditation or chant in heart while breathing when doing meditation. Every teacher has experience and teaching skills. I learnt a lot from them. Balance was good in training. My stay was pretty good. Rooms are clean and very calm and nice environment. I really love the food at Akshi Yogashala. Healthy and traditional food. Overall wonderful experience.
Alignment class was most useful for me during the training. All the teachers are great and experienced. My Stay was so good and food was excellent in ashram. Thank you to everyone at akshi yogashala.
I cannot forget the retreat program which was planned for us during the 200 hours program at the banks of the river Ganga. It was an amazing location which brought us very close to nature. The whole program was very interesting and highly enlightening and great. All the teachers have been very helpful too.
I Learnt a lot this month, pranayama and asana classes were great as well as alignment & adjustment and ayurveda. Everything we learnt is going to be useful when needed. The Philosophy class was great , great way to deliver it. Pranayama/meditation classes were pleasurable because of his good knowledge and great energy. Hatha and Ashtanga teachers were great and they covered the sequence, postures and series, the best way possible.
