    "Although I was almost 20 years older than the other students, Nagesh's teaching was always aimed at my own level of strength and flexibility. His thoughtful adjustments and encouragement kept me progressing through the various asanas. His broad understanding of all aspect of the yogic life gave me the skills to make yoga more than just a physical practice. Nagesh truly lives what he preaches and he continues to be an source of inspiration to me. I am grateful for the opportunity to have studied with him in Rishikesh."

The experience for me, changed my life in all the senses including my life style, I learned with Nagesh the Indian philosophy, yoga anatomy, asanas postures, meditation, ways to eat, different methods to teach yoga and the most important the Asana series and adjustments teaching in an environment of respect and confidence.My teacher Nagesh, was always very correct, always punctual in the lessons, friendly, patient, kindly, responsible and easy going person, he teaches the method of demonstration. All the knowledge that he knows and sharing all with us, most of the time he clarified our doubts and understand my limitations about yoga. I really enjoyed the 8 limbs of Patanjala Yoga. Nagesh's English was always clear and easy to understand, he was very caring about that all the classes and the students for the welfare and development.I am very grateful about benefits of each asana because my teacher always showing us the mind, digestive, back pain benefits of each posture. I really recommend Nagesh because the way he teaches and all the knowledge he get is very important for others, I really would to get in the future another yoga training course with Nagesh."

    "I did my RYT-200 course in Rishikesh with Nagesh, and I can sincerely recommend him. He is a calm and patient teacher with an individual approach to every student. Trained by Nagesh, I felt very comfortable and well-prepared when I attended my RYT-300 course at another school (Nagesh didn't have RYT-300 courses at that time). Do not hesitate, if you have a chance to be taught by Nagesh. You can surely count on his plaesant personality, knowledge and vast experience."

    "Nagesh as the director of any yoga school brings both professionalism and deep knowledge of yoga. I am certified under his direction for my 200-hour course in 2012, and found the program well suited for the western education style bringing both the deep rooted and authentic teachings of yoga and mixing them with modern teaching methods using power point well thought out teaching manuals and the use of highly trained and educated staff. I would highly recommend Nagesh's school to anyone looking for an outstanding yogic experience on there way to attaining the certification in teaching yoga."

    "I highly recommend Nagesh as a yoga teacher - a kind, wise, knowledgeable and incredibly humble person. Nagesh was a joy to be around for the 200-hour RYT, and was always clear on the skills I needed to develop in order to teach. Now, I have opened my own yoga school and Nagesh has been a large part of this process. Thank you Nagesh!"

    "Nagesh's presentations were very thorough and provided a lot of valuable information. I especially appreciated how much he knew about the sutras and how open he was to answering questions and explaining things in more detail if needed. I found Nagesh's teaching style to be gentle which is is really good for those new to yoga and he was always open to suggestions on how to best improve the program for the students. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend Nagesh as a teacher."
