    Although I was almost 20 years older than the other students, Nagesh's teaching was always aimed at my own level of strength and flexibility. His thoughtful adjustments and encouragement kept me progressing through the various asanas. His broad understanding of all aspect of the yogic life gave me the skills to make yoga more than just a physical practice. Nagesh truly lives what he preaches and he continues to be an source of inspiration to me. I am grateful for the opportunity to have studied with him in Rishikesh.

    I did my RYT-200 course in Rishikesh with Nagesh, and I can sincerely recommend him. He is a calm and patient teacher with an individual approach to every student. Trained by Nagesh, I felt very comfortable and well-prepared when I attended my RYT-300 course at another school (Nagesh didn't have RYT-300 courses at that time). Do not hesitate, if you have a chance to be taught by Nagesh. You can surely count on his plaesant personality, knowledge and vast experience.

    Nagesh's presentations were very thorough and provided a lot of valuable information. I especially appreciated how much he knew about the sutras and how open he was to answering questions and explaining things in more detail if needed. I found Nagesh's teaching style to be gentle which is is really good for those new to yoga and he was always open to suggestions on how to best improve the program for the students. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend Nagesh as a teacher.
