    "I have trained in yoga with many teachers for the last years and my experience being a student with Yogi Madhav has been the best. He is caring, sweet, patient, funny, highly experienced despite his short age, very professional and he moves like an angel. Always there to help and to give good advice during and after the course. Thanks to his teachings now I love Yoga more than ever and I feel very lucky I had the opportunity to train with him. I will never forget the month I spent in Yoga Ashram because it has been the most wonderful experience. Dhanyawaad mere shikshak!!"

    "Inspiring Yoga Teacher with a very positive energy"

    "I got to know Yogi Madhav during my Yoga Teacher Training Course and he deeply inspired me. His daily asana class was one of my favourite and I really enjoyed the spiritual talks with him. He is not only teaching asanas, he is teaching how to feel a posture and how to connect with it. Madhav helped me to grow a lot. Even after the course he always had an open ear for questions and shared his knowledge and brought experience. He is one of the best teachers I ever had. Thank you Madhav. Love Annemarie"

    "Best experience ever, I was lucky enough to be a student of Madhav for four weeks. Never in my mind I thought I was capable of such beautiful and intense yoga experiences. In every way he guided me and my group trough the four-week period of yoga teacher training. Every class, whether it was meditation or asana, I felt the spiritual and professional capacity of Madhav. The best teachers are the ones that make you feel the love and passion for yoga, Madhav did!"

He is very skilled and easily demonstrates and explains all asanas. He explains benefits and corrects students with ease! He is very professional."
