    "Sometimes words are not enough to describe such a dazzling landscape! Akshara Yoga school is synonymous to serenity! My Hatha yoga teacher, Saurabh Chaudhary, redefined and at the same time enhanced my knowledge on traditional Hatha yoga. Mrs. Savita, my Hindi teacher, who is always caring and smiling, taught me patiently this difficult scientific language! Mrs. Nikki, the farm's director explained me readily everything about milking. Ravindhar, the school's cook, was preparing three delicious meals per day, no need to mention the traditional sweets. Amazing that everything on my plate was cooked immediately from this excellently organized farm!!! Usha,the lady who was keeping my room clean, is one of the humblest persons I ever met in my life! I feel blissful about the knowledge that acquired from this place! Knowledge literally and metaphorically."
