Thank you for all that Himalaya Yoga Valley did for me, and us all. It was truly a life changing experience, and I am so grateful. I have come back to Australia and have had lots of interest in classes – I’m teaching 3 classes on Monday! I am loving every second of it. Students are loving the traditional feel the classes have. You will see me again, I’m saving hard to come back for my 500 hour, and an internship one day! Just can’t get enough of Himalaya Yoga Valley

I am writing to say a huge thank you. When I came back last year I put my head down and have been working really hard with the experience and traditional teachings you gave me. Without all of your hard work, support and encouragement, I wouldn’t have achieved this spot so soon

Thanks for all I have learned over the last month on the training course. It was a great experience and an honour to be one of your students. I am very happy that I made this journey with you to my inner self. Thanks for your open arms (and ears), you made me feel so welcome!

I did my 200 Hr TTC with Himalaya Yoga Valley in 2014 and I was really impressed with the detailed e-mails I received in the run up to the course answering all my questions. Then when I arrived I was welcomed with open arms and made to feel at home. All the teachers are high quality and so passionate about what they teach they really want you to get the most out of your training and to spread the benefits of Yoga to everyone at a good standard. The accommodation is lovely and the grounds are beautiful especially the shala and the pool. The course is tough so be prepared to work hard but if you love Yoga you will love the course! I felt confident enough after the course to go back and teach straight away.

I then wanted to learn more and thankfully Himalaya Yoga Valley now run the 300 Hr TTC. I felt I wanted to give my students more and have a deeper understanding myself of Yoga so I did the course in 2015 and it was the best thing I did. You get to specialise in a subject but also learn from other people’s specialised subjects too. Now I teach a variety of classes not just Ashtanga and have more confidence teaching people with injuries and conditions and feel I can adapt classes and poses now. I don’t like to turn people away so it is the most valuable thing to be able to include people in your class that perhaps haven’t been able to do Yoga before. This course also gives you the chance to spend time improving your own practice of asana, pranayama and meditation. I learnt a lot about myself in the time I was there and feel I can now pass on my experiences and knowledge I have gathered to others.

It’s with deep gratitude, admiration and respect when I bow my head to my teachers & Lalit from Himalaya Yoga Valley. In the Spring of 2009, I had the beautiful fortune of training with the Himalaya team in Dharamsala, India and once again in Goa, India two years later. Upon arriving at my first teacher training, I had a business plan written for a yoga studio. Not only did they whole-heartedly embrace my dream, they encouraged me to turn it into reality and cheer me on along the way. With their continued advice and support, I’m now going into my fifth year of business. Their kindness and generosity has far exceeded my trainings in ways I never expected.

Over the past several years, they’ve helped me brainstorm workshops and class ideas, detangle business situations, and even celebrate the birth of my son. Lalit and the team have challenged me to honor and live my yoga the best way I can, without compromise and with unwavering devotion.

I can say, without the slightest embellishment, that my life has never been the same since crossing paths with my mentors. With their guidance, I feel as though I have a handbook for life. I have a yoga practice that runs through my veins, far deeper and richer than any physical asana.
