"Yogi Harish Chandra at the Atri Yoga Center in Rishikesh will give you the best direction to offer you some assistance with mastering the yoga asanas. He will give you insights of knowledge of the yogic theory and will abandon you with the intelligence of how to define successful classes so that you may show others with certainty while staying consistent with an ancient yoga style."

"In my 25 years of yoga practice, gathering of philosophical, and meditative experience I have found four great masters that deeply impacted my life as a committed yogini. Yogi Harishchandra is one of those spiritual masters and is an expansive authority on all aspects of both Hatha and Asthanga asanas, meditation, pranayama, mudras, advanced kriyas, vedic/yogic philosophy, Ayurveda, yoga related anatomy and physiology, and teaching methodology. I completed a 200- hour intensive teacher training with him, a course that is far more in depth than many that I have researched. He has been instrumental in guiding my self-knowledge and practice, over all, to a deep and integrated level. Yogi Harishchandra is a fully committed master who devotes his life to his practices and to guiding others in the discovery of the Guru within themselves."

"Harish was doing a teacher training course in Goa (a once off I think) when I arrived in town. I asked him if I could join in (only for a few weeks) and he was happy to let me. I have being practicing yoga for a few years, however I have only practiced in Australia before this, and I was very happy with Harishs teaching. He corrected my positions and pushed me just a bit further than I would push myself and I reached a higher point in my yoga practice. It was a great learning experience."

"I did the 200 hour yoga course in November with my girlfriend. We did ashtanga yoga in the morning and hata in the afternoon. We started the course with mediation and cleansing. The proper way of meditation is very important to him this makes also easier for you to make progress. In the alignment class he showed us how to teach on many different postures. The small group made it possible to teach for everybody and learn how a teacher has to correct the students. Yoga philosophy and physiology made the whole course complete.We stayed in a nice hotel with got great food in a restaurant everybody took a lot of care of us. Harish is an amazing person. His yoga lessons are very good, always keeping a nice tension and he motivates to make more progress. He corrects you in a very smart"
