"100% Recommend Ekam Yogashala"
My experience at Ekam Yogashala was beyond amazing! We were so lucky to have such knowleadgeable,energetic and skillfull teachers, every class was exciting, interesting and many times even funny in their own special way. The management,cooking and cleaning staff were always super helpful,kind and friendly. The food was very tasty and we had a decent variety of meals although sometimes a little bit too spicy for my taste hehe. At the very beginning someone mentioned we were not eating enough raw vegetables and from that they on we had raw vegetables in every meal so I was very happy. Something I truly liked was the fact that the school is not located in the middle of the town because you get to feel and see a more local, non touristic side of Tapovan which I personally truly enjoyed. A few days after finishing the training I contacted the manager for help on booking a bus and finding the best route somewhere and even though they were on holidays he helped right away so I was very thankfull.
What mattered to me the most was to choose a school where the quality of classes, teaching method, teachers and learning experience were exceptional and that I what I got so I was extremely happy and satisfied :)
Thank you so much to everyone for such a wonderful and rewarding experience.

"Great experience which widened my views"
I had a great time at Ekam Yogashala. Everyday there was a lot to learn, we made full use of the little time we had. The classes were very good, I especially appreciated the philosophy ones because I think it's very important for students of yoga to get in touch with its true indian roots, something we got at Ekam yogashala. All the teachers made sure we got exposed to the spiritual part of yoga and that we understood what being a yogi really means. I am grateful for what I've learnt, every day was eye-opening.
The school is in a very nice location, a bit out of the noisy city center but still close to it, and also close to the nearby jungle. The rooms are cozy and clean, the food was always good and tasty. The staff is quite kind, and since the beginning I felt like I was at home with my family.
I can definitely recommend this school.

"Peaceful Abode in Ekam Yogashala"
Everything was very good, especially the teachers.
Food was really healthy & nourishing.
Staff in the premises was really polite & good.
All of us really liked the manager Mr. Devakar for his patience with us & listening to our woes. My case was really special since they allowed my 11 year old son to stay with me (that too free of charge 😊 ). I have recommended Ekam to most of my friends.

Ich war die einzige, daher wurde alles für mich individuell geplant. Ich durfte kulanterweise zwei extra Nächte kostenlos übernachten, so dass ich an den Retreat-Tagen vollständig anwesend sein konnte. Die Lage ist toll, man hat einen tollen Blick auf die Berge und es ist nicht so laut wie im Stadtzentrum. Das Essen ist reichhaltig und das Gelände ist sehr sauber. Ich hatte Yoga-Privatstunden und -Gruppenunterricht. Ich durfte bei allen Kursen der Yogalehrerausbildungsgruppe zuhören, wenn ich wollte.
