    " I recently completed Avatar Yoga School 200-Hour Hatha Yoga TTC in Rishikesh in November 2014. I had a wonderful experience in this program. The instructors shared so much knowledge and wisdom with us over the course of the 4 weeks. The schedule was taxing at times but it was so worth it because the practice was really transformative for me. Im grateful to have had this chance to go deeper into my experience of asana, as well as to connect with the other limbs of yoga and to learn about how to teach others. Finally, the venue was beautiful a bright, sunny, clean hall in a new and modern hotel. Just lovely."

    "I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training course at Avatar Yoga in December 2015. I found the course to be comprehensive, insightful, challenging and fun. I appreciated the smaller class size and the personal attention that I received. The staff are super-knowledgable and treat you like family. Really great experience!"

    "I completed my Yoga Teacher Training at Avatar Yoga School in Dec 2014. It was a fantastic course with many helpful and knowledgable teachers who guided me skillfully from yoga novice to experienced practitioner. The schedule could be challenging at times but it was well worth the result. I learned so much about yoga philosophy, practice, anatomy and teaching skills. Highly reccommend to anyone looking to become a yoga teacher!"

    "This is a review from three of the students on the Avatar Yoga school training course having only several days before we finish. We have enjoyed it so much being here doing the training upstairs at The Hote Yog Vas hishth in a hall with fabulous views. We have found the daily practice of Hatha yoga with our teacher Brajesh to be extremely beneficial. His teaching is very interesting as his life has been a background of yoga and he knows so much of the history. We find the whole course a joy to come to and will be sorry to leave.We would like to mention that our philosophy class with Yogi Mishraji,has been fascinating as have our samsung with Brajesh . All in all very recommended. Also the hotel facilities and staff are excellent.Please come and try for yourself. You won't regret it. We found the price well within our budget!"
