We were so fortunate to have such knowledgeable, enthusiastic and amazing instructors. Everyday we learnt so much in depth information about yoga. I also liked the structure of the day. Plenty of time to study and reflect on the theory. It was great to be encouraged to improve our practice and learn about other aspects of yoga including pranayama and cleansing. The hotel staff were also great.

"Intensive knowledge can be acquired"
Dipendra was my favorite part of the course who was our instructor for the philosophical and Asana part of the course. He was so knowledgeable yet so flexible and powerful physically. The course itself was intensive and covered almost anything a yogi needs to know to embark on the path. From cleansing regime, diet, history, philosophy, branches of yoga to advanced asanas, this is a complete package! There is nothing comparable in the west.

I really enjoyed the intenseity of the course, for every level.
They also covered a good amount of criteria in the short 22 days. Would recommend this course!

"Perfect yoga teacher training"
The 200 h yoga teacher training course at Mandala Studio was an experience like no other. The family-like atmosphere combined with extremely professional yoga teaching in the magical surroundings is something I'd happily recommend to anyone interested in deepening their experience of yoga. Within 22 days I was equipped with enough knowledge and confidence to start my own teaching practice, while understanding yoga as a life-long learning path with so much to look forward to. Thank you Mandala Studio family, we will definitely meet again!

My name is Thibaud Dupuy, I am a 25 years old man from France. I have been traveling in Asia for a while to look for a complete and efficient Hatha yoga course to follow. I finally found a beautiful garden in a quiet street next to the touristic area where i spent 3 months to learn Hatha Yoga with Kriti K., an outstanding personality. Step by step she has provided me an extraordinary teaching, based on a serious experience in the practice of yoga. She managed to make me confident and healthy, I will always be thankful for her teaching.
