"Great Experience! "
Everyone at the Yoga Ashram was kind and accommodating. The teachers were knowledgeable and thorough. There was a meditation and 2 yoga classes everyday, along with some other sessions. You are encouraged to listen to your body, and can go at your own pace or chose to sit out of a class if you need rest. The cohort I was with was really fun as well!

"Peace, tranquility and yoga"
Being in the same room as Krishna Das Baba was itself an enlightenment. His command on yoga as well as knowledge across spheres was exemplary. His tips on improving and enriching our life will stay with me forever.

"Great experience for all levels"
I was an absolute beginner and had a great experience with Krishna. By the end of the week I was able to things I haven't been able to do for a long time. It was a great way to kick start my commitment to yoga. Krishna is an amazing person who goes beyond just following the program. He shares his life stories, cooks great food and is very welcoming and kind. They're also flexible to your needs or level. After a few days I was feeling quite sore and tired and so they introduced me to yin yoga. He has an easy going and fun approach and manages to make his lessons more fun. I hope to join his classes up North and meet again.

I felt immediately at home, in the welcoming, simple and honest place created by baba and everyone else involved. True knowledge of life and going deeper into experience your own body and mind is what you get, through being and talking with baba, challenging asanas, reiki, sound healing and nourishing foods. A wonderful place to stay and experience Indians treasures for human kind. Thank you

"Authentic yoga, with focus on what yoga truly is"
Absolutely authentic and raw. This is a place where yoga is treated for what it really is and has been for centuries, and not just a pretty workout for pretty Instagram photos. Krishna Baba is a traditional yogin and healer of brahmin lineage who has spent his life traveling across India on his spiritual journey - this quality is unique and makes this whole experience absolutely special. You feel his experience and that special way of understanding life in the way he teaches, the way he runs healing ceremonies and the way he tells his stories - and by being part of this retreat you're welcome to stay close to all this by not only joining the fantastic ashtanga! and hatha yoga classes and ceremonies (daily sound healing or reiki or mantra chanting), but also joining the real life: cooking, evening stories sharing, etc.. I can't imagine I could have found a more authentic and raw place in the whole of Goa. It's not all postcard beautiful (although yoga terrace on the rooftop with the view of the forest is stunning!) and tip-toe organized here, but the power of authentic learning to tap to is massive.

"200 hr multi style YTT"
Overall my stay with Baba was positive, I have continued to practice what I learned since returning home. Baba teaches much more than yoga though and really made an effort to integrate my sister and I (US citizens) into Indian culture. He treated us like family and took us to many different festivities, such as Diwali and an Indian wedding. The food at the ashram was abundant and delicious and Baba made sure my sister and I had everything we needed to be comfortable. The location of the ashram was perfect too, close enough to Bhagsu to be convenient but still very peaceful with many natural features.

"Wonderful 200 hour YTT"
Krishna and Varun we're our main instructors; they are both passionate yogis. Krishna was a wonderful host, always made sure we were comfortable. Varun was so professional and really knew his stuff. I feel grateful to have learned from them. The location in Dharamsala was amazing. Close to things, but far enough that it was peaceful and quiet.
