What Students Said About Us

Luckily I was among the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course in March 2018. The entire team at Gyan Yog Breath is very lovely. I learnt so much from them in all areas of yoga. The 200 Hour TTC is very intense but you can so much out of it at the end. Every day is like a new adventure where you challenge yourself, release, practise and grow. Coming from Germany, I am used to a structured and efficient way of learning and living. Maintaining a good sense of structure during the course was very important for me. One of the School Managers and teachers comes from Germany which was great for me personally. I felt like the course was a combination of east and west. All food, weekend trips and ashram location were beyond my expectations and the rooms are also maintained very well and clean. Thanks dear yogis & namasté

200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training

I can highly recommend this place! I did my 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training here and feel very lucky to be part of such a caring yoga family. The classes are very intense, you get to learn so much in one month. Sometimes I felt tired, but I kept going, at the end its so rewarding. Dharma, Manish, Nisi and everyone else made me feel so comfortable and welcome. Doing a Yoga Teacher Training in India is a great way of figuring out what you want in life and gaining clarity. I ended up here because of the emotional blockage Treatment and Ayuveda aspects. Best decision so far, I miss them already!
