Jose Marquina

After teaching in North America, the UK, and taking part as a leading teacher in Hatha and pranayama in yoga teacher trainings in India, Jose realized the need for a new understanding of teaching for the modern yoga students, where the original values of yoga would not be compromised by the new learning tools and trends. His understanding about yoga has led him to conduct classes that are a perfect blend between traditional Hatha and modern Vinyasa, with a strong focus on alignment and mindful breathing. In his classes, he strives to find the balance to challenge the mind and body.

Madhura Bhagwat

Madhu is from a Hindu, from a Brahmin family. Therefore, yama, niyama, and mantra chanting have been part of her daily life. She has a wide experience of practicing with the best traditonal Indian and Western yoga teachers. ​While working as a leading Ashtanga Vinyasa and yogic philosophy teacher in the teacher trainings in North America and the Indian subcontinent, she then realized how necessary it is to bring back the true meaning of what yoga really is, the perfect union between body, mind, soul and the Panchamahabhutas.

"A very complete and balanced course"

I didn't have expectations before the start of this course. I just read the descriprion without even having a look at the reviews, which I probably should've, but to say that it went above anything I could've thought of it is not enough. The knowledge of the teachers was surprising, the balance between the topics was perfect, the philosophy behind the practice blew our minds, the logic of the anatomy behind the postures, the meditation and breathing techniques challenged us until we became obsesed with them. If you want to have a very good starting point into the ongoing journey of becoming a Yoga Teacher, I would highly recommend this course. And just be there, take it all in and then take everything you learn into your daily life, after all yoga is so much more than what you do on the mat. Namaste

"Awesome!"

If you want to be faster, stronger, smarter than go for it! Teaches us to have discipline over ourselves and ensures growth in yoga practice. You get honest feedback. You can use your creativity in the tasks (in teaching, creating classes). All the teachers work with a mission to give the best out of 200 h!

I am very grateful! And time flies very fast, if you have fun! :)

Die Kursleiter haben Respekt und Disziplin eingefordert, was einen geordneten Ablauf der Lektionen führte. Jedes Thema wurde sehr genau und gut erklärt.

Obwohl ich schon 60 Jahre bin, hat es mir sehr grossen Spass gemacht.

Mein Ziel war, endlich mehr Hintergrund Wissen über oder vom Yoga zu erfahren,

was vollumfänglich gestillt wurde. Ich war am richtigen Ort und bedanke mich für

die tolle Erfahrung. Madhura und Jose haben uns sehr gut unterrichtet.

So hard to put into words a month with these guys! Beautiful school built on a genuine passion for spreading the essence of yoga. So many different teaching styles meant we were challenged in every way, and there was no sense of having ‘bought a certificate’. I came out a changed person, with a deeper understanding of myself, my yoga practice and the ways this ancient wisdom can be made accesible to everyone. Can’t thank you guys enough!

It‘s hard to describe in words what I got from the 4 weeks in Banjaara yoga! I am so lucky to have chosen this school not just because i was a beginner in yoga but also because the knowledge José & Madhura provide goes beyond what you hear about yoga in the west. It‘s knowledge about life. And this also starts with changing yourself and your perspectives! Really greatfull for everything and definately recommend this to anyone especially those who are hesitating ;)

I completed my 200hr TTC at Banjaara Yoga And Ayurveda in May 2018 and it absolutely exceeded my expectations and more! I spent months searching India for the right 200hr course and really struggled to find what I was looking for. When I first met Madhura (one of the owners) she finished my sentences with what sounded to me like an extremely well planned, extensive and holistic yogic experience, and it was just that. Jose and Madhura are both incredibly passionate teachers with an abundance of knowledge they want to share with you. They also hand picked a fantastic team of teachers to work with who all put their heart and soul into making sure we all got the absolute most out of the course and came out the end as fully capable teachers with a drive so deep to keep wanting to learn more and more. The other three teachers we had were Ruth, Yes and Mohit who all were amazing and taught the classes where their passion lay.

This 200hr TTC goes extremely in depth into the philosophy of yoga and truly changed my perspective on what I thought yoga was about. In one month I couldn't believe how much philosophy, anatomy, pranayama, meditation, alignment classes, practicums, types of asanas styles could be be fit in but they make it possible! We learnt mainly to teach hatha, vinyasa, astanga, pranayama and meditation but somehow managed to also learn some partner yoga, pregnancy yoga, restorative, yin, chakra based yoga and now I feel comfortable teaching any of these!

If you are wanting an in depth course to deepen your personal practice or to be able to teach anywhere in the world... Then this is the one for you :)

So much love for all of these teachers and will always be thanking them endlessly for their time!

It was really a great experience to have and Banjaara Yoga & Ayurveda the teachers are really great. I never really practiced Yoga before going there and it was not an issue. I was integrated with the class very quickly. I really enjoyed my stay. Thank you, it was really awesome. ❤️❤️❤️

I did my 200hr YTT in Thailand and I feel so lucky to have trained under Madhura and José. They are such fantastic teachers. They clearly love yoga and their depth of knowledge is outstanding. Their course gives a great foundation for anyone wishing to become a yoga teacher with a fab variety of topics covered. I hope to be even 1/10th the teacher they are someday. It was hard work both mentally and physically and I loved every second of it. I met amazing people on this journey and this time will stay with me always.
