Where do people like Om Shankar come from? From a place of deep respect and reverence for human life and human potential. The space Om creates cultivates utmost joy, emotional safety, and curiosity for deeper life wisdom and yogic understanding. I recently completed my 200 hour teaching training at Bhagsu Institute and I can easily proclaim it was one of the best investments I have ever made for my mind, body and spirit. Om's yogic competencies are vast, deeply developed and are generously transmitted to his students with whom he regards with kindness and respect. The family and deep healings I inherited through my yogic journey with Om Shankar are a priceless gift.
Quite simply "do yoga be healthy and happy" Om.

Hi travelers, I let you my advice about this place. I came to India to looking for a nice place to doing hatha yoga. I tried all around the country different teachers, and defintly, this one is was one of the best!
Om( the teacher) create a very nice atmosphere, the flow of the asanas is so gentle, and the location is amazing... totally recomendable. It's a must in India. Enjoy it!
I can not say enough about my experience with Om. Completely new to Yoga and now walking away with a new love and understanding of the practice. Planned to stay for 1 week and ended up staying a month. The energy and environment Om has around him and in the yoga studio is amazing. So much knowledge and wisdom you can't help but want to be around and learn from. I also completed a rebirth, reiki & kundalini workshop with Om during my stay. This experience has changed my life for the better. A great teacher and advisor. Thank you Om for this amazing experience!!!

Om exudes a sense of genuineness I have never come across with any Yoga teacher before. As a beginner, my experience with Yoga teachers in the West has always been rushed, with very little emphasis on the actual practice of being a Yogi or learning what Yoga means in general. In a matter of a week, not only did I develop a much richer understanding of Yoga but, from a practical perspective I understood what it meant to apply these practices in my everyday life on a holistic level - from breathing, to daily practice to philosophical components of maintaining a a positive attitude. I am extremely grateful to have met Om and practiced with him, even if it was for a short period of time. Moving forward, it's Yoga for life for me! If you get the chance to practice with Om and I wouldn't hesitate for a second. Thanks Om! :)
A friend of mine recommended OM for 200 RYS teacher training, so I arrived at his studio in Bhagsu with a healthy amount of anticipation. To make it short, I ended up undergoing 4 challenging, fun and deeply developing courses with Om. I cannot recommend Om enough. With his deep educational background, heart-warm spirit and positive smiling approach to everything and everyone, I cannot imagine someone not being grateful and happy about his guidance. I will definately go back. Keep on keeping on, Om Ji !
