It was a fantastic experience...My room and the accommodation, in general, were tremendous and it is well located in Ubud. The yoga hall is not a closed room, so you feel in nature all the time. After a few days, it felt like home, but not only because of the accommodation. The people I met there are awesome, we had a lot of fun together and so many deep conversations. All of the teachers are super nice, authentic and supportive. You got help anytime you needed it. During the yoga practice, we learned a lot from the advangented teachers and had fun. The teachers are all super sympathetic and always very helpful and explained the stuff twice when it was necessary. What I like the most about this training is the connection between the physical practice and mental knowledge. I think this is an essential part of knowing a lot about your body and yoga as a science, especially when you start teaching. Moreover, you learn different yoga styles and it was so good to try other styles and see which you like the most. The way of teaching was professional, but in a relaxed way, so you always feel comfortable. We all become friends, and the vibes were anytime positive. I enjoyed everything. I highly recommend this YTT!
I am so glad that I chose this school, it was perfect for meeting such great souls and learning a lot about myself. And again a huuuuge thank you to Via, Shani and Jagjeet for being so amazing as well as to my class :) I miss you all already! Sending Love <3

"Une formation qui ouvre beaucoup d'horizons "
Le fait que la formation soit multi-style. Cela permet de découvrir des styles de yoga que l'on a parfois jamais pratiqué. Cela rend la formation plus diversifiée.
La location dans UBUD: au calme mais proche du centre. Idéal pour aller se détendre avec un massage, manger une glace, ou se rendre au marché.
La nourriture est très bonne et le personnel très gentil.

"Quick yoga retreat in Ubud"
I only had a couple of days in Ubud and wanted to do some yoga. There are yoga classes nearby but I wanted more of a retreat style to immerse myself.
Manish was super responsive and accomodating.
I joined into a yoga teacher training course and was able to attend the asana classes and also yoga philiosopy and teachings. The teachers were great and knowledgeable. Everyone was really friendly and I enjoyed chatting about things off the mat.
This is a new teacher training course and so its still developing - I loved the intimate feel and small group. It was a fantastic experience.

"Great opportunity to broaden your skills! "
The 50h Aerial YTT that I have taken part in was well prepared and covered the most crucial aspects necessary to not only practice aerial yoga safely yourself, but most importantly - to teach aerials avoiding accidents and injuries.
The instructor for aerial, was well experienced and structured the course in a great manner, he also gave every single student a great possibility to teach the whole 1h class! The classroom with aerials was available for us 24/7 so during out breaks we were able to do our own practice and prepare for the classes as well.
Communication with Manish - the person organising the training was very professional from the beginning- he replied very quickly and ensured that the students felt welcomed and comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised when I was sent forms asking for my medical history (injuries, allergies etc) as well as for the food preferences!
Once I've reached the retreat, I was welcomed so warmly! Parvitra is doing an amazing job making sure every student feels like a part of the family. She was going above and beyond organising extra activities for the students who asked her to book massage, water rafting in Ganga or even a tattoo artist session! I've observed that if there was any request from students (to adjust schedule, organise extra classes,etc.),Manish and Parvitra would do their best to accommodate students needs.
The place itself is very clean, air conditioned, and with a good WiFi connection.
Great value for the money!

"More of a yoga holiday than a retreat"
You could arrive on any day. The rooms were comfortable and had air conditioning. Pabrita was always around to help and give information or advice. She is friendly and will do all she can to help you have a good experience. The massage was really lovely and rafting was fun. The food was good but if one person in the group doesn't like spice, then everyone eats pretty bland food which in India, is disappointing. We went to a wonderful fire ceremony one evening as a group. It's very good value for money.

My YTTC in Aayaa school was a amazing experience. All the teachers were aknowledgeable and engaged. It was great inside of yoga theory, asanas and philosophy. The schedule and organisation was well maintained. Manish and Popi took care of us so we could feel welcomed and comfortable since the beginning. And last but not least food was very delicious! Thank you for everything.

"I liked the time spent in Aayaa yoga"
I liked that the hotel bcz mostly all of the rooms have Mountain View. All the teachers were very smart and pleasant as well doing their best to share the knowledge.

I enjoyed this training so much. The location of the retreat was good. The teachers were knowledgeable and experienced and they had so many to offer. The alignment teacher was so great and I learned a lot from him. I thought all the things he taught were useful for my future as a yoga teacher. The Ashtanga teacher was harsh but knowledgeable. All the adjustments he did were great. And he guided me deeper into an asana. The Philosophy teacher was nice and knowledgeable. Even we had any problems (actually he didn’t need to help us), he helped us to solve them and he spent his private time to communicate with us(about the content of course and any other problems we found). The food was great. They fed me so good! I couldn’t forget the mushrooms and spinach soy bean milk cream sauce!!😋 The staff was nice, they remembered what drink I liked, and prepared it after meal! 😊😊 Our Manager Pabitra was just amazing! I really can't express how much she impressed me. It was very hard managing food for people everyday and all from different parts of the world with different tastes and appetite. She spent her holiday for helping us and arranging activities for us! Specially thanks for holding my hand during hiking😭😭I thought I would fall down without her help😭😭

"Great yoga time in rishikesh! "
The people at this retreat were very accommodating from the amazing manager Pabi to the kitchen workers, the facilities were great and I loved the food! Even with extra tea and special pancake requests :)
Yoga instructors were very informative, morning hatha was a great way to wake up, and ending the day with meditation sessions was very relaxing as well. The ashtanga class was challenging in a good way and Neeraj really helps to improve your form, getting you much deeper into poses.
Also loved the rafting and best massage I’ve had after many in the past 6 months in Asia!!

"Fun Weekend in Rishikesh"
From the moment I walked in the door, the hospitality that was extended to me was phenomenal. Everyone was very friendly and wanted to make sure my every need was taken care of. The food was great, the classes were great, and the people were great, going way out of their way to make sure my experience was awesome.

"Yoga retreat Aayaa yoga"
Ich hatte eine tolle Woche in der ich nicht nur entspannen sondern auch extrem viel lernen konnte! Die Yoga und Theorie Lehrer waren super nett und konnten in kurzer Zeit sehr viel vermitteln. Was mir besonders gefallen hat, war dass ich bei den Stunden der Teilnehmerinnen des Teacher trainings dabei sein durfte!
