Ravindra Singh Tomar
Master Ravindra is a passionate, dynamic, innovative, and inspirational yoga teacher who brings his energy, humor, and philosophy to every class he teaches. He believes in making yoga a holistic discipline. His yogic practice and teachings aim at attaining sound mental health, physical rejuvenation, and spiritual blissfulness. In addition to learning within the Gurukul Parampara, he completed his formal education by earning himself a diploma and a master's degree in human consciousness and yogic sciences.
Rasa completed her yoga teacher training at Yogapadhashala and also at Sivananda Ashram in Ahmedabad, India. She traveled and joined classes in different ashrams and yoga schools in India, Mysore Mandala School, three weeks of Ashtanga yoga practice, and pranayama course with B.N.S. Iyengar. Rasa believes there is no style of yoga. Yoga is an ancient science founded in India to balance and keep your body, mind, and soul healthy. Yoga teaches us to live every moment of our lives fully experiencing it whatever comes to us.
Irina Mironova Orthodoxu
Irina completed her yoga teacher training with Master Ravindra. But she believes that teacher training should never end. There is always something more to learn to adapt to practice "Yoga is for everybody. Yoga is everywhere. Yoga is the happiness of living. I would share this knowledge with other people. Sometimes, we forget that everything for a happy life is inside of us and we need just stop and listen to our inner voice".

"Learnings from a true Yogi"
Ravvi's nature, traditional approach, history, stories, wisdom, philosophy, student understanding and his methods to deliver yoga to maximise learning were everything I could of wished for at the right time.
If someone was to ask "describe yoga", as well as answering with my new understandings I would also say... come meet Ravvi, he is a true Yogi and experience time with him.
For anyone wanting to learn more on yoga, begin or expand on their instructor journey, a class, course or talk with Ravvi is definitely not to be missed.
Thank you so much for all, eternally grateful.

"Great learning experience "
I learned a lot about the history/theory of yoga, correct alignment in different postures and ideas for how to teach a class. And I found out I can actually survive without eating sugar and drinking coffee everyday😅

"Once in a lifetime experience! :)"
Ravvi is a very patient and inspiring teacher. Together with him we took a deep dive into the world of Yoga. It was an amazing experience for the body, mind and sould. I was enjoying the easy and unforced atmosphere in the lovely house. Time flies when you're having fun, so 3 weeks passed really quickly! I learned a lot for myself, I think this knowledge will help me a lot in my life. Also my body became so much more flexilbe during the course. I highly recommend this course, you will enjoy it! :-)

I enjoyed the class a lot.
Ravvi was really engaged, patient and answered all our questions. Especially, i liked learning completely new breathing practices and mantra singing.
For me, it was a unique experience, not only giving physical benefits but also learning things for life and meeting wonderful people.

This course is really good value for its money. Ravvi, who has studied extensively yoga in India, provides a really good understanding of what is yoga. He teaches us how to live a yoga life on and off of the mat. This course is more about the philosophy of yoga then on the asanas but you will still be working hard on the postures. Ravvi gave us a strong basis on how to be a good yogi and from here we can grow on our own. It was really nice to have Rasa come teache us some classes as we could experience a different style of yoga and she brought a more feminine energy to the class. Thanks Ravvi and Rasa for your kindness and generosity!

Ravi is an excellent teacher, who can convey the spirit of yoga through the asana practice, his own stories and the way he is with the students. I learnt a lot about the way of living yoga not just on the mat but in real life.
I recommend it strongly if you want to understand yoga as a spiritual practice and the qualities to nurture inside of us if we wish to be teachers and communicate these to other people.
The food was so light and tasty. Rooms are nice and clean.
The seaside nearby is fantastic

"Learn about Yoga and yourself"
I learnt a lot, Ravvi is a very wise teacher and due to the small group (we were 5) he can really focus on each student and guide your practice. Food was very good and plenty. The beach is only 5 minutes walk, I went for a swim every lunch break.

"Most useful holiday ever"
I could only go in August when in Cyprus it is obviously very hot: would I be able to bear the heat? I am also a lot older (and fatter) than the people who go on yoga retreats, judging by the photos online, and I get tired easily: would I be able to cope with the pace and get on with the others? I took a gamble and was very lucky. Ravvi taught us the entire course, and if the 4 initial days were very hard, something changed after that and the pace became lighter though still intense. I had other books with me, but I ended up reading only about yoga. Even if the sea was very close I went to swim only sporadically, and stayed home resting or reading about yoga. I thought that I would regret this once I got back home, and instead I was surprised to find myself so different and lighter on my return,
Ravvi is an excellent teacher and focuses his attention on his students so much that even a mistaken exhalation through the mouth, instead of the nose, was picked upon immediately, even if he was correcting someone else’s asana. A toe out of line was noticed and corrected at once, let alone the more obvious opening of a hip, or raising of shoulders. His attention to detail was contagious, back home I find that I’m thinking of each pose a lot more, I’m constantly checking on bandhas, adjusting this and that, in other words, practising mindfully rather than rushing into asanas. My teacher here noticed and complimented me at once. Thanks Ravvi, Yogi and my fellow students!

"Peace and Balance at the Yogapadashala "
The program was challenging for the mind, body and soul. It was a blessing to be a part of it, I would do it again in a heart beat. It was well balanced with class sessions of discussion and practice - with Ravvi sharing his knowledge and experience the whole way. There was free time every day between 10:30/11am meal and class resuming again around 2:30 or 3pm, which made it very nice to read the text, work on assignments, explore konnos bay right near the house or take a rest, as you please. It was a very well balanced program full of support, inspiration and love.

"Ravvi is one in a million"
Great location, Ravvi is an incredible man, full of wisdom and very insightful. He is open minded, loving, welcoming, funny, wise, very experienced and you could listen to him speak for hours. The daily chef made very healthy, tasty, and fresh meals. There is a beautiful beach about 10 minutes walk from the yoga house, nearby cliffs, towns not far, etc. Ravvi has a special way with words which assisted me to get into a pose I struggled with for many years.

"Don't be serious, be sincere"
I am grateful to have chance to meet Ravvi, Rasa and Yogi ( our chef). 3 weeks life changing experience. Ravvi's teaching is inspiring, exceptional and heartfelt.

The food is freshly cook everyday and tasty. Special thanks to our chef Yogi, such a beautiful soul. Talented not only in his cooking. Everyone can feel he is full of positive energy. Highly recommended this course. Once again, thank you Ravvi and Rasa.

"genuine yoga science, wisdom in use of yoga tools"
Instructor Ravindra Singh Tomar was compassionate, understanding, caring and consistent in delivery of great truths of yoga science and instruments for development of body and mind. His guidance was simple and fun and the atmosphere he created within the center was conductive to deep study and also experimenting with and combining of old and knew knowledge and skills. I felt exhilaratingly happy throughout the course. Great benefits for body and soul but also great skills for future work as a yoga teacher.
from Greece, September 2018
I recomend this course very much. All my doubts has desolved and it was much more then a yoga retreat. The classes were practical, the philosophy lessons with the teacher were hand out very interestinly and always with a big loving smile. The food was original indian food so for me it was perfect. The house was comfertable in a quiet area and yet only a short bus drive from the tourist area if you nead it.

"Amazing experience "
The location is excellent, calm, the villa is beautiful and Konnos beach is just a few minutes walk. The small group allows you to practice effectively and it feels like a small family. I enjoyed Ravvi’s way of teaching and his broad knowledge and experience made me learn so much. His approach towards yoga is inspirational and his funny and easy going personality made these 3 intense weeks wonderful.Food was freshly made and it was amazing thanks so much for that Yogi and Ravvi!

Ravi has a calm, loving way to handle group dynamics. He is true to himself, has strong psychic boundaries. His qualities such as tolerance, patience and acceptance were inspiring. He has a wide range of knowledge about Hinduism and the yoga philosophy. He really tried his best to convey that yoga is much more deeper and comprehensive then just the asanas alone. He focused on asanas as a means to help us ‘realise ourselves’ and try and find our ‘own voice’. He was encouraging and supportive. We learnt about how to structure a class and we were given the opportunity to practice to lead classes as well.

I loved everything about Ravvi's School of Yoga, India. Literally everything. The intimate setting really allowed us all to get to know each other and fully delve into the spiritual, mental, emotional, ethical, and definitely physical aspects of yoga for our personal practice and also as future instructors. If your path led you here, and you need a sign, and this resonates with you...then, this is it. Follow your intuition. For me, the stars aligned and brought me to Cyprus, and I couldn't be more pleased with my experience. Ravvi and Rasa were the best gurus any one could dream up, and all involved left a lasting impact on the experience. The food...oh, the food...was out of this world - made fresh every day with love by Yogi and Hammad (and a few times Ravvi), leaving us with full bellies every meal. If you're looking to lose weight, this may not be the place, but you will tone and tan, so it's kind of the same thing. Haha. The house was wonderful - exactly like the pictures and better. It's location is perfect - a 10 minute walk to the beach at Konnos Bay for every day and only a 15-20 minute bus ride to Ayia Napa and Nissi Beach for the day off. It was the perfect location to immerse yourself in yoga, and also not be overwhelmed by isolation. It really was transformational. There's no way that you can walk away the same person...not a chance; you'll leave lifetimes wiser.

I feel so forutnate to have experienced Ravvi's yoga school.
Ravvi shared his experience and deep understanding of Yoga. Providing a solid foundation to walk the path no matter how far into the yoga journey you are. The practice was layered with the physical poses, stories, discipline & humour. All areas of body and mind were engaged. Meeting wonderful people who are now friends from all around the world. The food was fantastic and plentiful, beautiful location & stunning scenery.. Thank you Ravvi, Rasa,Tara and the crew (Zedenka,Yogi,Hammad) for helping me to connect to the practice of yoga.

"Une expérience incroyable"
Ravii est un excellent professeur qui a su donner à chacun les outils nécessaires à l'épanouissement de ses capacités et des bases solides d'enseignement.
L'énergie qui imprègne ces lieux est unique, revigorante et pure. J'ai appris énormément et continue à mettre en pratique chacun des enseignements.
J'ai beaucoup aimé l'ambiance de groupe qui s'est formée entre les participants et les nombreuses ballades que le lieu magnifique nous a permis de faire.
Je suis très heureuse d'avoir choisi cette école, et y reviendrais sans hésiter.
Merci à tous pour cette expérience!

"Wonderful experience, for every level and everyone :)"
I cannot believe how lucky I was to have chosen this training. You will experience as much as you are open to. The lessons were challenging and great, you become amazed not only by what your body is capable of but also by your mind. Ravvi has told us so many things that cannot be learned from a book but by experience, retelling fantastic stories from his life in India learning from a wise Guru and Masters, providing us with the most wonderful quotes to take back into our daily lives. The Indian food was delicious and I could have kept on eating it for weeks! The beach is close, civilisation as well, however its a nice change to choose the calm. When I got back home, everything was "wonderful" and people told me they were stressed by my calm state of mind :D

"Wonderful start of a Yoga-journey"
At Ravvis Yoga school "Yoga" is not limited to practices of breathing, meditation and asanas: while living together in this lovely house with great participants and an awesome team I got a deeper understanding of how everyone of us can integrate Yoga in our daily and normal life. And that feels uncredibly good. Because of the intense and individual yoga training I felt myself improving and growing every single day not only physically but also mentally. Best decision ever to spend 21 days there.
Thank you, Ravvi, Rasa, Tara, Zdenka, Irina, Yogi and Hammad for sharing your experiences!
