    "My dear teachers Radhika and Govinda have done their utmost to establish a perfect Ashtanga yoga teacher training for everyone. They let us know what 'yoga' really was, and in many aspects more than I learned from the commercial yoga world. The course was extremely intensive and we worked closely with each others, we learned, practiced, sweated, exhausted and laughed together. Radhika's hearty laughter and smiles have imprinted deep into my mind! She communicated with us from her heart and loved us with her pure soul, I loved every moment we shared and all pieces of experiences were really memorable for me. The training was really tough but worthy. If you are looking for a serious yoga teacher training or work out your Ashtanga yoga practice in depth, I strongly recommend Radhika's training. "

    "Why should you do your teacher with Radhika rather than any other program in the world? Radhika’s personal practice stems from the most authentic and ancient lineage of yoga. Although this may sound intimidating, she has the ability to make the most difficult postures accessible to the most neophyte yogi. Her instructions, adjustments, and methodology allows the teacher trainee to not only make progress incredibly quickly in their own development but also become exceptionally proficient in effectively sharing the same progress with others. The daily schedule is absolutely ideal! You even have access to a sincere and relatable scholar of Vedic knowledge; this means that your intellect will be as engaged as your physical body. I have lived on a sailboat, made maps for the government during post-disaster operations, grown rare and exotic fruit in a tropical paradise, and overstimulated my adrenal gland with unthinkable extreme sports feats; however, the most profound and rewarding time in this life has been that spent in the company of Radhika and her team. If you desire to become remarkably enthusiastic, confident, patient, disciplined, discerning, and a devoted teacher of the most genuine practice under the sun, then this is the training for you! You will come away singing, dancing, laughing, and smiling. Attempting to summarize how much advancement you can make during this training is futile in words. But I will say that I have never felt more balanced, capable, and excited then after practicing regularly with Radhika. Let yourself get swept up in this magical experience, it might just be the best decision you ever made. Writing from a place of the deepest gratitude, with respect for a truly great soul. Looking forward to training with you again as soon as possible."

    "The experience of training with Radhika and Govinda has left me inspired and energized! With strong daily physical practice paired with Govindas deep philosophical teachings and joyful afternoon mantra sessions. Without the doubt the training was physically and mentally challenging, everything I hoped it would be! Radhika’s approach gave me the ability to find my own voice, teaching style, and beliefs. I loved the location of Kovalam beach allowing me to regularly connect with the ocean. I would recommend Radhika Yoga if you are looking for a deep and intensive experience to truly evolve yourself and your ability to share with others."

    "I thoroughly enjoyed Radhika Yoga's Teacher Training. Radhika's knowledge and expertise in Astanga yoga and inversions is extensive and humbling, and my Asana practice progressed immensely over the course of 3 weeks. Govindas knowledge of yoga philosophy was equally impressive, teaching me an immense amount every day. Thank you for everything, Radhika and Govinda - you both have an amazing energy, and I feel immeasurably blessed to have connected with each of you."

    "This yoga program was so much beyond anything that I could have expected. I arrived in Kovalam, India into the beautiful world of true yoga led by the incredible Radhika and her fiancé, Govinda. Everyday brought a new challenge and a step further on the path of personal transformation. Radhika's teaching style is a balance of kind, loving motivation, and pushing each individual to finding her edge. In the mornings, we maintained a focused, active one and a half to two hour practice, followed by methodology, philosophy, inversions, and winding down with the lovely mantra class in the early evenings. During my time in the program, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to participate in the inversions course with the incredibly talented Mark McLauchlan who got me into my first headstands and handstands, a real highlight in the program and my life! This program was an absolute dream, from the very first sore, aching-hamstring days to the very last enchanting closing day ceremony. Radhika herself is an inspiring, divine light on earth that infuses each day with the power of her devotion. This course was absolutely magical and I'm extremely happy I was able to experience this course within a small group because I know this gem won’t be kept hidden for long. Love you Radhika! :)"

    "Wow, what an experience. The Radhika and Govinda dream team swept me off my feet… literally and metaphorically. The team’s passion for all aspects of yoga is an inspiration, both a fountain of knowledge in their own right, drawing constantly on their own vast and varied experiences to teach above and beyond what’s expected of a 200-hour YTT."

    "My experience during Radhika Yoga teacher training is truly beyond words. Incredible teachers filled with so much wisdom and light. From asanas to pranayama to philosophy and kirtan. It was a month of massive growth and purification, plus the location in the Arabian Sea was such bliss. I highly recommend this training to anyone who is truly interested in the meaning of yoga as a self-realization tool and way of truly being alive in this human experience."

    "Radhika greeted me like we were old friends and that's what it felt like from day one of meeting her. Radhika made sure we felt safe and sorted out healthy and delicious food for us to enjoy during our training time. We had a gorgeous apartment with views of the Arabian Sea and enjoyed the fresh breeze blowing through our practice space all day long. It was so special to be taught in a group of like-minded people. Radhika was able to work with me (and the rest of the group) as an individual and help me personally work through the areas I had most difficulty with. She helped me break through my insecurities as a teacher in training which gave me much needed confidence so I could take it with me when I left. I finally can connect my body to my breath. Which I was never able to do before the training. Not only did she make me feel more confident and helped me finally connect my breath to my body but her and Govinda (our Philosophy teacher) taught the true meaning of yoga. Being able to actually understand the meaning of this powerful practice has to be, hands down, one of the most important things I have learned in my life. It was so amazing to learn the power of the breath, asanas, philosophy, mantras and sutras but even more amazing to be able to have connected with myself on a level I had never experienced before. My shavasanas were deeper and more relaxing than I had ever had, I felt uplifted during every beautiful song Radhika sang, and learned the beginnings of an ancient language I never thought I could grasp. I believe I am lucky to have learned these lifelong tools from Radhika Yoga and am even more blessed to now help spread the true meanings to the people I will go on to teach. I will forever be a changed person from this experience in my life. Thank you Radhika and Govinda!"

    "After a few snow storms that had me locked in my house for days at a time I started thinking deeper into my soul. It was starving. I realized I had a huge void deep inside that I wasn't fulfilling. Everything kept pointing to yoga. I didn't quite know at the time why yoga seemed to be the answer but that is what my gut was telling me. Another thing my gut kept saying was India. I wanted to know the deeper meanings behind yoga and there was only one person I felt like I could trust. Radhika not only seemed to have mastered the art of yoga asanas but she had a magical presence about her that was undeniable. I knew that if I followed her to India I would leave with a deep spiritual understanding. This is why I decided to go with Radhikas teacher training. So I quickly signed up for her RYT in Kerala. From the second I landed in India I felt a sphere of protection around me. The people of India were wonderful from the moment I arrived and my travels to our teacher living quarters were safe. Radhika greeted me like we were old friends and that's what it felt like from day one of meeting her. Radhika made sure we felt safe and sorted out healthy and delicious food for us to enjoy during our training time. We had a gorgeous apartment with views of the Arabian Sea and enjoyed the fresh breeze blowing through our practice space all day long.

I believe I am lucky to have learned these lifelong tools from Radhika Yoga and am even more blessed to now help spread the true meanings to the people I will go on to teach. I will forever be a changed person from this experience in my life and without giving myself this time in the mother land it would have not been possible. Thank you Radhika and Govinda."

    "I have just completed my teacher training with Radhika from Radhika Yoga and it has been such a magical experience. I would highly recommend attending one of the many future programs coming up. Now I highly recommend these courses, for not only developing strength in your asanas through daily Ashtanga Vinyasa practice, but more importantly learning the ancient philosophy of yoga and the Vedas, which is missing in other regular yoga teacher trainings, as well as being in stunning India which where the spiritual heart of yoga and beyond was established."

    "I feel really blessed after this amazing YTT! It’s a special opportunity to fully immerse yourself in pure connection with soul and awakens you to your powerful purpose in relationship with the divide which has been empowering in indescribable ways. Her way to teach is so compassionate and full of knowledge and love! After the training I felt really stable in my practice and couldn’t wait to start teaching!! She taught me how to be stronger physically, emotionally, and spiritually! My ideas about my life are clearer now, and thanks to her teaching, through the love and devotion shared through her are transmitted and deepened within me. I now feel a much stronger connection to the source of existence, to God. Not just the practice of yoga but also learning the depth of this knowledge shared from the Vedic conclusions - the whole essence and very meaning of yoga has changed my whole life journey. This knowledge and the essence of this amazing art deepened the connection to myself, my purpose, and my heart."

    "When Radhika teaches, the class is transported far away from the clutter and frenzy of modern life to a place of calm and heightened breath with much greater posture awareness and alignment. She comes from another world. Her poses are unbelievable; she is a wonderful teacher and a delight. And at the end of class and Radhika sings to us, we see colors, distant villages, and snow capped mountains and we leave the class feeling aligned and at peace."

    "Radhika always teaches us amazing classes at Yoga Tree. Her classes are energizing and infused with the deeper aspects of yoga making it feel authentic like no other I’ve experienced! Every time I join her class I gain more knowledge as well as mental and physical strength (which I feel she gives me), and her insights make me feel more equipped with alignment, breath, and spiritually in approaching future yoga practice. I strongly recommend her fantastic yoga classes to anyone and everyone! Her angelic voice and chanting always soothes my body and soul. I greatly appreciate her time, help and guidance.
