Yogachariya Jnanadev Giri
Surender Sani was born in India and lived there for the first 33 years of his life. He is also known as Yogachariya Jnandev. He studied yoga in both aspects, academically, and through his own experiences. Now he has established an ashram primarily based on Gitananda yoga, along with his wife Sally, in Wales, UK. Jnandev has studied yogic scriptures in their original language, Sanskrit. He comes from a Hindu family and holds the moral and ethical codes of yoga as vitally important. He believes that spiritual growth and evolution are the foundations of true yoga practice.
Yogacharini Deepika Giri
Deepika (Sally Saini) started her yoga practice back in 1993 and she became a full time yoga instructor later. She is married to Surender Saini. They met in India while she was doing an intensive teacher training at the International Center for Yoga Education and Research. She is also known as Yogacharini Deepika. Sally has also studied, practiced, and been involved in many other systems and techniques over the years in her spiritual seeking. Deepika is now one of the few people worldwide who hold a 3000hours advanced qualification from ICYER, Ananda Ashram.

"Thank you for this experience!"
This ttc is made for everyone who enjoys a simple, off-grid, community life.
We were a small group of just 7 students, what was really nice because each one of us was able to ask all the questions they had, we made some special lessons for individual needs etc, it was very personal in general.
The students as a group got along really well, we had a great time together.
In our free time we were able to walk to the closest village or have a wonder around in forest and the neighbourhood.
The food was simple but very tasty, the ones who fancied cooking and learning about the Indian food, were able to participate in the cooking sessions.
In General I really enjoyed this yoga teacher training and really recommend this tradition, the Gitananda tradition because you really do learn a lot about the huge, ancient and traditional topic of yoga.

Beautiful area, very experienced instructors teaching classical yoga. Lots of theory to go along with the physical practice. Enjoyed my time there immensely.

"A genuinely authentic yoga experience in a warm yoga-family!"
Authentic teachings, without traveling all the way to India. Great food, beautiful location (if you are looking to be in nature too). The ashram is unfolding, this was told to us from the start. This means basic facilities and every day a new step to the future is made - lovely to be part of the process. It helps to come closer to nature, life and of course, to ourselves, where yoga is all about, especially when you are living in the city. When there is some rain, you will have the pleasure of a sweet creek to cool down in. I slept in one of the tents which was very comfortable and for sure warm enough. Last but not least: delicious food!
