      "Paramanand Institute is the best place to do the inner journey to find out our true nature and experience the true Yoga=union. It is an Ashram, it is an Institute but it is also a family where you can grow up and where you can share experiences with other people. All this is possible for the grace of Guru ji, always present, always attentive, always available. A real Guru. Thank you!"

      "Back in my hometown in my old life I feel that nothing is like I left it before. I am transformed.In June 2014 I went to Italy for a 5 days Yoga course. There I met my Yoga teacher Maa Lakshmi (Lise Baronet). Having a course with her I realized that there is something very special and unique about her way of Yoga and Yoga teachings. I found out that she was at the Paramanand Yoga Ashram in Indore.I decided that I needed to go there for a 500 hours Yoga Therapy Teachers Training Course in December 2014. I am a very much beginner in Yoga. I thought I will learn some postures that may help against musculoskeletal pain and I will benefit with more physical fitness.Paramanand Ashram taught me the ancient deep and pure path of yoga. It is a tight syllabus, and you need work hardly to go through. In this two month of my stay, there was a lot of doubt, anger, hesitation, disbelief, neglect and fighting inside me. Under the guidance of Guruji, trough practice and reflection I could move from darkness to light (tamasoma jotirgamaya). I feel my life is transformed.I wanted to learn some postures to achieve some physical fitness and additionally to have a certificate from an internationally approved Yoga Institute. Of cause I am a yoga therapy teacher now, but further than that, I am on the yoga path, I got keys to experience deep meditation, to observe and to control my own mind, to live a life in my own peace.I feel deep gratitude. I want to thank Guruji for his kind, patient, loving and caring guidance. Hari OM Maa Gita Anand. "

      "How to talk about a place that feels like my own home but with words full of thankfulness and happiness?I first came to the ashram in 2013 and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Really transforming.Even though I was a practicing yoga teacher before coming, I found an incredible source of knowledge and inspiration in every teacher. Guruji helped me to find the real roots of yoga and the true meaning of meditation. Meditation sessions with him were enlightening. Without any doubt my yoga and life have benefited since my fist visit.This is the second time i am in "my" Ashram, and the experiences are different but as profound as the first.I highly recommend to every yoga aspirant, who wishes to visit India to study in Paramananda Institute...Nothing will be the same after that experience.
