      "Before I came to India I was curious and I did not know what to expect from the course that I have booked. My plan was to discover more about Yoga, not just the Asana-practice, which we, in the western world know as „Yoga“. From the first day on, the last doubts in my mind about the organization and the course were blown away. I got an huge insight in the Yoga-Philosophy, Spirituality‚ Anatomy, Ayurveda, and Teaching, but the most important thing was, that I learned and found out a lot about myself. It was great to have one month to emerge totally into the whole world of Yoga and it was awesome how Akilesh guided us through the classes and our own processes. He is an amazing teacher and I felt really safe within the structure of the course. The whole ambience, the teachers, the food and the accommodation were great and I felt relieved, balanced after this month, furthermore I discovered the joy of teaching, which I share with my friends already now."

      "Words cannot express what this month in India meant to me and how much I enjoyed every second. I really want to thank you Akhilesh from the bottom of my heart for what you gave to me – your wisdom, your chants, your laughs. I came to the Yoga Teacher Training Course to intensify my yogic knowledge and yes I extended my knowledge, but what really happened was that the more I learned about yoga, the more I learned about myself. The course was really unique, with an amazing group of teachers, a really hearty group of yogis and the wonderful Whispering Lake, next to the Goan beach, with its wonderful sunsets. A one-in-a-lifetime experience!"

      "When I planned to visit India for the yoga course, my expectations were very low about the course. I didn’t have much to encounter in yoga and was open to learn new things regarding the philosophy, meditation and different yoga style. This course is intended for the individuals of all levels and educators here are splendid. They are dependably there for you, in order to respond to your inquiries. In the wake of finishing the course all I can convey is that my desires were met and whatever you read here is true. Currently, I am once back in my home country, Greece, where I take a lot of pleasure in showing my loved ones what I had learned. I would propose this course to all individuals who need to encounter yogic life and begin a yoga vocation. This is such an amazing experience and I bet you won’t be disappointed."

    • Review by Barbara Ehrat from Switzerland

      "By destiny I got to know Akhilesh in Switzerland. Here I realized quickly what an immense knowledge he has, what a deep connection to life of yoga he can communicate in a wise and easily digestible manner. It was no question a month in India with such a teacher would be fantastic. In this four weeks in Goa, I experienced far more than ever expected: Akhilesh offered a richness of different yoga classes, every morning a new form of meditation, every noon a deep going, but simple philosophy class and in the evening dance sessions, full-moon chantings or whatever the group needed. Akhilesh guided and created this month with a lot of sensitivity of the whole group and of every single student, without losing his goal to give us a deep and complex understanding of yoga in all its aspects. Well networked to the yoga scene of India we could enjoy different teachers, yogis and babas. For all those who would like to immerse deeply into the richness and complexity of yoga, the Neo Yoga Teacher Training gives you the perfect chance. In this month I nourished my physical, mental and spiritual body in a manner in which with a course in Switzerland I could have never been able to attain. I returned home so balanced and relaxed, that my children believed I had a detox treatment in Goa."

      "My experience here at the yoga educator instructional class has been really brilliant. I am leaving this camp with considerably more than an educating endorsement. I have taken in such a great amount of Asanas (postures), Vedanta rationality, and the yogic lifestyle. The educators were excellent and surpassed my desires. Akhilesh is extremely proficient and has an extraordinary comical inclination, making classes profitable yet constantly cheerful and fun. I would prescribe this course to anyone intrigued by a yoga-reasoning course. I am feeling truly delighted after being a part of this camp, had lots of fun and I miss being a part of this in USA."

      "When you take a sight at things, occasions, you can take alternate point of view whether this month has provided for me something forever, I will, without any reasoning, say a big Yes. In terms of self-awareness and becoming closer to myself, not long from now has taken me far. On the off chance that I consider the capability viewpoint of about-facing and showing yoga, I saw this in an unexpected way. Akhilesh already knows for himself how long-term and what kind of commitment one needs in order to achieve a level of a qualified instructor. It is my earnest conviction that its not conceivable to turn individuals with no uncommon preparing into legitimate yoga educators, in a month. Thanks for being there and teaching us such wonderful things."

      "In the event I ever got stuck inside a broken lift I really trust that Akhilesh, my instructor, would be beside me. The guy is a boundless wellspring of stories and all of those ends up in a fat chuckle. He is a genuine Yoga proficient who deciphers his life’s order with good cheer and grand Indian appeal. He radiates an ardor for yoga as well as a pledge to imparting that love to others. His showing style is as entertaining as it is thorough that makes his classes testing completely funny. I would say he is purely a gem."

      "I’ve never needed to compose a testimonial for an educator, however I’m propelled to impart to any individual who is looking for a yoga instructor, that they have discovered one among the best. My instructor Akhilesh Brahmchari is truly a talented and uplifting instructor. His lovely nature and affection for giggling delivers the goods in the majority of his showing making even serious asanas or psyche boggling kriyas, a heavenly encounter. In my gathering of 25 persons educator preparing, I about constantly heard the saying “adoration” in any of the sentence that included “Akhilesh”. His educating is not difficult to love because he had an approach to vitalize story or practice."
