    Location - yoga overlooking the sea has something magical

    Quite a lot of free time - great for people who want to combine the teacher training with some down time

    Nicely structured program - more physically intense sessions in the morning, theory in the afternoon, meditation in the evening

    Program covered all basics, with emphasis not only on postures, but yoga as a whole (incl anatomy, meditation, breathig, philosophy, Sanskrit prayers etc)

    Accomodation was horrific. You don’t stay at the Beach House (where the training happens), but at the ‘associated property’ Camelsons just next door. Small, dirty room without any storage, fridge or even safe. a 2cm ‘mattress’ with a sheet as blanket and spiders and ants everywhere. There are many affordable places close to the Beach House (eg, Baywatch) or Colva, the town 15 mins away by foot. By the end of my batch, only 2 out of 7 participants were still staying at the original place.

    Food was good, but very repetitive. Be prepared to eat rice 2-3x/day. Also, food was served in aluminium containers and we had to eat either in our rooms or find a place at the Beach House. Makes you feel a bit like 2nd class citizens and I’ve missed the community spirit that comes up over a nice meal.

    Most teachers were ok, but not great. Only one (our Philosophy teacher) really seemed to care about us as people. The other teachers were very transactional (come to class - deliver - leave), which just doesn’t seem to go with the idea that yoga is not only a physical activity, but a mental and emotional transformation.

    Most of the instructors, teachers, staffs, chef are professional, great and nice.

    The environment is amazing, it is just located next to the ocean.

    Everyday practise with the ocean view is speechless moment.

    Food is great, the beach house is a healthy/nutrition based company, the food they provide was delicious and healthy. I felt i was getting healthier day by day.

    The accommodation is good, it is a nice area, and just one minute away from the place we took classes. Staff are great, thanks Raymond, he is very helpful and nice.

    Overall is worthy to pick this place. Feeling thankful for everything here.

    One instructor is quite disappointing and disrespectful to students, others teachers are willing to teach and share, humble and friendly.

    The images of accommodation they put on the website is not where we stayed, however I prefer the one i stayed, it is nice and neat too. (water ran out and no warm shower sometimes, but they will try their best fix it. It is acceptable to me.) It will be better if the company could update the images on the website, avoid disappointing customers.

    The course was great and authentic. I liked that we learned sanskrit names and the benefits of the poses. The location was lovely-especially the yoga shala facing the beach was awesome. Reejo is clearly an experienced teacher who taught us well and showed us great modifications. Arbind was fantastically positive and supportive. Pjushe shared a lot of knowledge with us-his tips to gain more flexibility was the most helpful. The people on the course were so lovely and from all walks of life- I felt supported by them!

    The dried rice breakfast! But the place was accommodating and would change anything if asked. The yoga shala at the back wasn't great. I think certain course teachers should refrain from making comments about their students' appearance- it's unnecessary and spoils the experience -especially when the student was enjoying it- it leaves a bad taste. If you haven't got anything nice to say...don't say anything at all.

    One of the teachers was really good.

    One teacher was the most unprofessional person I've ever met.

  • Joaquin and Iuliia

    It was a great course.

    1 - The place: it was very special to do the teacher training surrounded by nature; 2 different species of monkeys ( macaques and langurs) hang around the place almost every day, beautiful trees, etc. to have the bhagwan mahaveer national park just beside the resort, with the beautiful dudhsagar waterfall, it’s another extra…The rooms are nice; but there is an electrical problem: many times a day it’s running out and back. Those cuts are short but annoying when you are in your room reading or watching TV and when it’s very hot.

    2 -The food: the food is vegetarian and delicious. The kitchen service is always ready to listen to suggestions and change. The only thing is that there is lack of protein in the diet; not very good while you’re doing many hours of exercise a day. Also, the amount of fruit is very limited, a small bowl every morning.

    3 - The teachers: excellent. With the always smiley and passionate style of Naveen, the very funny and outgoing Ram Krishna, the more technical Reejo and the very helpful with alignment postures Sachit. We couldn’t expect for something better. All of them are always ready to help and very high level professionals.

    Overall it’s been a great experience. Highly recommend, cannot imagine something better for the price.

    Yoga Vimoksha teacher training is an intensive yoga retreat where we had a full schedule all day long. But with a nice accommodation near the sea, friendly staff and with good yoga teachers we managed to constantly find more energy. I have developed more than I ever dreamed of and I have learnt not only the practical yoga, but also the philosophy, meditations and breathing techniques. We had a pretty strict food diet (sattvic) to follow and after 3 weeks I feel lighter in my body then I’ve done in a long time. We truly did Yoga for the body, soul and mind. I had the time of my life and met so many friends on the way. I can really recommend you to go here and do a yoga teacher training, be prepared that it will change your view of life for the better.

    I had a fantastic experience with Yoga Vimoksha. They surely exceeded my expectations with the teacher training. The teachers were all very skilled and unique in their own style, I really enjoyed that mix-up of knowledge. The farm house retreat was also just incredible with really friendly and helpful staff, as well as ducks and monkeys patrolling the space. I would recommend this teacher training for anyone interested in starting a Hatha yoga path (outside in nature:), or anyone seeking to broaden their knowledge on yoga as a whole. We were a fantastic crew altogether and I couldn't ask for a better experience. Thank you kindly!

  • Diana K.

    I completed the Yoga Alliance 200-hour yoga teacher training course in July, 2016 and it was everything I had imagined it would be! The staff were absolutely wonderful. Whenever I had a health concern, from mosquito bites to stomach upset, a doctor was readily available and staff members were there to provide neem, Ayurvedic medicines, and fresh aloe vera from the garden. The YTTC instructors were excellent, each in his own way. One instructor provided amazing vinyasa flow classes; it is because of him that after only a couple of weeks I had mastered advanced yoga poses that I had never even dreamed of attempting. Another instructor was a philosophy expert who helped us understand the concepts through stories he had learned in his childhood. Yet another teacher exemplified discipline, compassion and wisdom both in and out of class.
