"I love the place and experience i had there"



from Canada, April 2018

Bhagsu is a delightful hippy village in the Himalayas away from pushy hawkers. It's a short walk to the Tibetan-like village of Macleod Ganj - home of the Dhali Lama. The weather is cool here in April ( so different from Dehli!), the people friendly, the cafes terrific. Alpesh is terrific at alignment. His cues will stay in your head for a long time

"A total experience"

The yoga retreat with Alpesh was a wonderful experience. It was mainly so because Alpesh is a "born teacher".He was sincere,understanding,, with self respect, and also respectful. There was also a certain sense of humor and flexibilty, especially at watching each student and quickly analysing who is who and what are the needs of the person as well as the group . From the professional side I felt that I can trust him wholeheartedly . During class his clear explantions as well as personal example made me remain focused throughout the session and even surprise myself with my own achievements.

Alpesh introduced me to the world of yoga in a way that was very different from what I previously thought I knew. With all respect to the physical side, It was a spiritual experience as well.

I wish I could have stayed longer. Returning home I told my family and friends of this unique experience.

"Gracias. Thank you."

La experiencia del yoga debe ser completa, más que sólo un ejercicio físico, más que sólo paz. Encontré una formación profunda que Alpesh facilitó, y que fue alimentada por otros dos maestros que apoyan el programa con filosofía, anatomía, y pranayama. El lugar está hecho para encontrar personas afines a una vida sencillamente feliz. Estoy muy agradecido con la experiencia.

Yoga is more than just a physical work, and Alpesh knows how to teach the complete experience. Also there is a team of wonderful teachers that help go further in anatomy, philosophy and pranayama. It is a wonderful place where you can find people that want an honest happy life, great to mingle.

How I miss your yoga and Pranayama classes! I feel very lucky that I discovered you on the day I arrived in Arambol. Or more accurately: you found me studying your flyer and told me to come the next day. Naturally I obeyed…

I had the opportunity to practice 22 days in a row. Yes, that’s every single day I was in Arambol, and I wouldn’t have wanted to miss one second of it. I did intensive yoga classes I breathed, and I felt blissfully in touch with life.

Now that I’m home, I’m practicing three times a day. Already I notice being more relaxed about things, enjoying life as it comes. To me this is more than enough reason to continue. Oh, and of course the fact that I enjoy the practice itself so much :)

To anyone considering Alpesh’s Pranayama classes I would like to say: go ahead and take class as often as you can! This is a unique opportunity so grab it with both hands. It might well be the beginning of a journey that will change your life.

Alpesh, my great yoga and Pranayama teacher. This man was my 'breathing-yoga' guru when I was in Arambol back in 2008. A truly life-altering experience for me! I left Arambol, completely cured from my sleep apnea! I highly recommend his classes to anyone. A true Master of the Art of yoga and Breathing!

In 2009 I met Alpesh in Bhagsu, he gave me private pranayama lessons. It made a deep impression on me, such a huge effect these simple breathing exercises gave!! When i was ready for another step in my professional life, to do more with pranayama was the first thing on my mind. I contacted Alpesh again (we kept in touch once in a while), and off I went for more training. In Bhagsu again, he convinced me to do a yoga teacher training course combined with pranayama. Wauw, that was a big step for me, a teacher training course. I enjoyed it a lot. As I worked already with older people and I wanted to use the yoga and pranayama for this group, I had a lot of questions what to do with special sicknesses, and physical and mental conditions. Alpesh composed a special program for me, with special teacher, he did everything to satisfy my needs and interests, even mantra singing classes, it was great... Alpesh is a devoted, knowledgeable and fun teacher. Personally I am practicing yoga and pranayama now everyday. This sounds like I am a fanatic, but i am not. I just feel good doing it. I am 48, yoga is for all ages. I am teaching now to people with alzheimer's disease, and more teaching is to come (the website had some delays). Writing this all down, I realize again how important Alpesh has been for me both personally and professionally. I am so happy with my new shift in career. Many thanks Alpesh, for being my teacher and inspiration!
