"Instructive and enjoyable beginner's course"
Skilfull instructors and serviceminded staff, informative written material including a daily schedule, well equipped facilities nicely located at the outskirts of the village but still only a few minutes walk to the main street, very good food. Although we only joined for a short, 4 day course there were a couple of interesting sight seeing trips included - the sunrise view from the temple at the mountain top was fantastic! The surroundings are marvellous with the Himalayas and the Ganga river and we could enjoy both from our bedroom window at the nearby hotel/guest house. Thank you all at Sri Yoga Ashram for a wonderful introduction to yoga!

"Wunderschönes Teachertraining "
Es war ein eine wunderschöne Zeit. Die Lehrer waren sehr gut und freundlich! Ich habe eine Menge über Yoga gelernt. In dem Ashram habe ich mich wie Zuhause gefühlt und es war eine familiäre Atmosphäre. Freundschaften haben sich gebildet... ich erinnere mich gerne an die Zeit und hoffe irgendwann mal wieder zu kommen.
