I've been introduced to Yoga by Manish a few years ago and since then I love this practice. Manish is an amazing teacher and through his classes he's able to transmit his kindness and positivity towards life.

To practice Yoga here is an experience that I highly recommend to everybody. Both for the spirit and the body.



I have followed the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Program. I was in need of profound knowledge with original yoga and meditation class. After following the 200 hour Yoga Teacher program, I am impressed by the teachings of ancient yoga, including secret meditations, profound philosophy and excellent yoga class. They showed me a step forward into the dawn of true enlightenment!
