    I really enjoyed the classes, my schedule and atmosphere in the school. Hotel and school is just 2 min distance, but also 10 min is the city center. Food was nice and different. We had two nice trips with Dr Sushil outside the city, also i had plenty of time to explore surroundings by myself.

    it's not that i didn't like something, just it was my first experience in india. and the first sight was a bit different from other places i visited, but you have to wait 2-3 days and than you are only enjoying))

    Staff was very friendly, teachers were good. Cook was good.

    I did not get what I paid for. I was included in an ongoing teacher training course, where most of the classes were not appropriate (designed for teachers). I ended up doing only 2 asana classes per day, which I could more or less follow due to previously acquired knowledge. Otherwise it would have been completely frustrating. I had to practice patience and contentment, though, which is great for meditation :) The school is simple, the facilities and accommodation are bellow standard for what the schools charges ( considering Indian prices). Cleaningness is a problem in both school and accommodation ( students are expected to do their own bit which is not easy when you have a big group and no formal rules or organisation). In general the school lacks a bit more care and using the student fees to improve their comfort. And of course it is oriented for TTC, so I do not recommended anyone to come for a retreat and "immersion" into yoga.

    Not to be afraid of teaching; sometimes we can be our own worst enemy and let fear and personal doubts get in the way of an amazingly uplifting experience. It was a absolute pleasure to be surrounded by such an incredible support group for our first practicums.

    The group of yogis and teachers in the class have supported each other along our journeys. I have learned throughout the past two weeks to open up to strangers in Chandras nurturing environment and continue to allow myself to grow. We had our 30-minute practicum this week and to watch the other students come alive in their practices with this supporting environment was inspiring. This has made me become a stronger person knowing that I have open-minded and loving people surrounding me.

    Cleaning the body and mind makes a big difference. I have learnt how to live a heathy lifestyle. With the knowledge and encouragement from peers and training, I learned that yoga is not just a practice but is a way of living.

    Chandra Yoga was one of the best experiences in my life. I was already a Bikram Yoga instructor before I went to the course and thought I already knew quite a bit about yoga. I was wrong, and I learned more than I could of ever even imaged! The instructors were so knowledgeable, especially Dr. Sushil. I made friends for life and loved every second of it! I would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you, Chandra Yoga!

    The month that I spend with Chandra Yoga doing my YTTC was the best time in my life. And it is totally true. Everything was just how it is supposed to be. This school helped me understand that everything is possible. With them I grew as yoga teacher. Super professional instructors, who were very kind and had a passion for what they do. There I met some of the best people, who became not just friends, they became my family. I just can say big big thanks to Chandra and all of the people who were teaching us. Big love to all of you. Namaste

    It was a privilege to travel to Dharamsala and take classes with such gifted teachers at Chandra Yoga! Their focus on teaching diverse styles of yoga made it easier for me to choose the style that best suited my personal practice. They taught us to reach our maximum potential as far as our own body awareness, which facilitated the ultimate goal which is to connect with students' physical and spiritual needs. Most teachers had a different background and nationality, which added a unique element to each class. Before I started my training I had doubts that I could become a teacher myself, but only a couple of weeks upon returning home I taught a few classes and my students were completely satisfied and wanting more! One of the greatest experiences at Chandra was the connections I made with other fellow Yogis and the satisfaction that my teacher certification came from an organization filled with love and integrity.

    Chandra Yoga International changes my perception about Yoga. I came to the course with the thought of learning “a gentle balancing exercise called yoga.” But now I open my eyes with a new knowledge and deep understanding of what yoga means. It’s a trip, an adventure to come back to your home, your inner-self. Thank you Chandra Yoga to bring me home. Much love and see you back soon.
