"Fell in love with Indian Philosophy!!"
Anyone can have access to “yoga asana practice” these days, but yogic philosophy might not be the case. Learning the philosophy / ideas of ancient yogic texts from Saurabh opened my eyes on so many levels. I received great knowledge to continue / deepen my study even now that I’ve left the course.
I also learned a lot from Saurabh’s family, like how to cook Indian foods. For self-study, I did Indian influenced drawings, which helped me calm my mind and connect with my creative energy. Saurabh’s family was always helpful whenever I needed to access anything. It was a great experience bonding with them.

Location in a calm and quiet family farm. The contact with teacher family it was very nice. The cats in school.:-). Not big classes so you can have more time to learn and discuss with the teacher. For a first Yoga TTC 200hours retreat we recommend this school to our friends and other students.
