"Best Yoga Retreat and Yoga TTC School in Rishikesh, India"

I recently had a wonderful time at the Maa Shakti Yog’s 2-Day Discover Serenity and Strength Yoga Retreat Festival in Tapovan, Rishikesh that I will not easily forget.

Every person I met was smiling warmly and a calm atmosphere prevailed which put me at ease from the time I arrived. The location itself nestled among the magnificent surroundings of Rishikesh added another layer of peacefulness to the whole experience.

Throughout the retreat, I had an opportunity to participate in different yoga sessions conducted by experienced teachers who not only walked us through asanas but also shared their profound knowledge and understanding of yoga philosophy. Every session left me feeling refreshed both in body and mind while I admired the emphasis on discovering inner strength and peace through practice.

One of the memorable moments during this retreat was connecting with fellow individuals who were interested in yoga and a holistic lifestyle.

Now I am planning for a 200-hour yoga ttc with Maa Shakti for Sept-Oct Batch. Highly Recommended For All People who are planning to visit Rishikesh for Yoga Courses or Retreat.

"Great personal experience "

I had a good experience overall in the training. Teachers have been very knowledgeable, approachable and communicative. The classes were well structured and took place in the school’s new location with good facilities, with minor construction details still to be finished but with calm and positive atmosphere. The meals were provided by the accommodation staff under supervision of the school teachers so they are making adjustments when needed for better menu.

Because the school just moved to this location recently renovated the pictures on the page weren’t reflecting yet the new accommodation so I raised this concern at my arrival. We discussed this and it’s understandable as they just finished the refurbishment of the new place and only now up to date pictures can be uploaded - we’ve been the first training group in this location. It was a great personal experience.

"Excellent in some ways"

The facility staff were lovely going above and beyond at Ubud Raya Shala to make our stay comfortable. The Bali spirit was amazing with so much grace, beauty and joy all around. The Ubud area has so much to offer we planned many excursions to fully enjoy the area and we’re met with so much pride in Bali culture. The two teachers were highly skilled and Ankar pushed us to higher abilities and understanding. He is especially skilled in anatomy and alignment. Ankar met us where we were in our skill level and led us to new understanding. We had a substitute philosophy instructor brought in to offer 8 hours of wonderful training under difficult timeline. He did an amazing job.

"Incredible teachers and amazing experience "

I am so happy I chose Maa Shakti Yog for my yoga teacher training. The yoga classes were extremely challenging but in the best possible way, I am a beginner so found it really tough but feel stronger for it. Every teacher was so experienced, had different methods and had an incredible wealth of knowledge in all fields. I feel really lucky to have been taught by them. These teachers are world class and should be getting awards for their standard of teaching. They pushed us to our absolute limits and were so supportive, both inside and outside class.

They went above and beyond to meet our needs, making sure we were taken care of and enjoying our stay. Rohit really made a huge effort to make sure we enjoyed our down time, planning excursions and bringing us to beautiful cafés and restaurants. He was really generous with his time outside of work hours and both he and Kanki treated the group as friends, not just their students. They brought a spiritual element to the course that was unexpected for me but it really brought the overall experience to the next level. Kanki is an amazing guide, especially with meditation, I did not expect to enjoy dynamic meditation so much. Rohit was amazing too, really appreciate how quickly his queues solved the mystery behind so many asanas for me, even from the first class. Sumit pushed me to my absolute max and for that I'm really grateful, even if I wasn't in the moment! 😂

If you're thinking of doing your YTT then look no further.

"Best Yoga Teacher on Bali"

Sumit and his team are teaching Yoga for many years in India and now they are also doing Yoga Teacher Trainings at the best quality in BalI.

The teachers offer the best knowledge and are very experienced. The food (vegan/vegetarian) was insane. They offered every day something new to eat. The rooms were very clean and we had a whole area only for our Yoga Teacher Training. I can highly recommend Maa Shakti Yog! See you again in India for the 300 hour license. Thank you so much guys! I wish you all the best!
