    "I attended the 2014 December 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course! It really feels like coming to Santhi was meant to be! I was suppose to attend a course in the North India which completely fell through and at the very last minute contacted Reshma (literally the weekend before the course started) to see if they could fit me in by any chance ,which they could! At first I had mixed feeling, I really don't like the south of India, but then again I was finally going to do my YTT! I don't regret going one single bit! I even started liking the south, which was probably more to the serenity and sheer joy I felt from coming from the daily schedule at Santhi. We had some fantastic teachers, I absolutely adored JP who we had for every morning asana lesson and for the yoga teachings before lunch. He was just the type of teacher I had wished for, he said so many fantastic things and really put not only yoga in perspective for me, but also religion and spirituality! What I really loved about the course was the variety of teachers we came across. Santhi yoga really went out of their way so that we could experience different ways of teaching yoga! I would definitely recommend Santhi to anybody!"

    "Santhi Yoga was the first place where I learnt yoga in its traditional way. I enjoyed every bit of my training program, which gave me time for some retrospection - to the spiritual aspects taught by J P. Sir. It taught me ways to deal with daily chores and to balance stress in my life, to observe and absorb different things around.Thank you all for the wonderful training, hospitality and life lessons provided during the study."

    "I was very disappointed by the program. It was highly overpriced for the quality of what was provided. I would not have called it a retreat at all. For $600 for 7 days I would have expected at least some comfort and better energy from the space where yoga and treatments took place. The guest house was far separated from the school where treatment and yoga was provided and wasn't very nice, and they didn't even want to cover the cost for air conditioning, which in south India during this time is a must! The yoga space was dirty and the mats were all worn and torn up, so it was good that I brought my own! The day was a strict regimen of yoga, breakfast, one Ayurvedic treatment, lunch, yoga philosophy and yoga again. This would have been fine accept for the fact that generally when you are detoxing you should be in a place you can relax and feel the benefits, and the location of the center was not comfortable at all. It's a school, not a retreat center. They mainly do yoga teacher trainings there, so the others there were in a course, not doing a retreat, which meant Santhi's provision of a yoga philosophy course was just throwing me into the yoga teacher training course, which puts you somewhere in the middle of random parts of teacher training, which just felt strange. The Ayurvedic treatments were nice, and the staff were very friendly but that's about it. Even my 'consultation' with the Ayurvedic doctor felt like poor care. She determined my dosha and then gave me a piece of paper telling me what food I should be eating, but she failed to provide any real answers or support for the health concerns I had. It just felt like she didn't really care to actually help, she just through me into treatments without answering any questions as to why they were doing each treatment, or what the medication was that they were having me take. After the first day I asked to leave and receive a refund for the final 6 days I would not be staying since the quality of the retreat was so poor, but the director, Reshma, would not allow this. I don't have the funds to just throw away $600, so I was essentially forced to stay somewhere that I was unhappy and uncomfortable. I thought this was very bad service, especially in work that is supposed to be healing. She did make some changes for me, which included providing AC and an additional treatment each day, but again this still did not change how I felt about the overall program. There were other things about the week that I wasn't comfortable with but I think I've voiced most of my issues with it. I think they may be able to advertise this as a week of yoga classes and Ayurvedic treatment experience, but not a retreat, and people certainly should not be charged $600/650 for this."

    "I had an amazing time with Santhi Yoga. What a team of people!Reshma was so helpful with everything and always at the end of the phone if you needed her. The food served there was organic vegetarian prepared by their own chef. The food was absolutely bursting with amazing flavors, and the kind staff make sure you get second helpings if you've got room! The day started with beautiful chanting prayers, all staff and the morning yoga instructor got involved, bringing peace and joy to the heart for a great start. JP and Gino were 2 fantastic teachers! Loved them both! Very helpful for posture correction. The style of yoga is sivananda and it was extremely well taught and easy to follow. I learned a lot from this style. Also picked up handy tips from JP..Treatments!!! I have never experienced anything so fabulous! Again, amazing staff so helpful and always with a smile :-) (a pair of beautiful twins.) The names of the treatments I cannot recall, the first 4 days were traditional massages with oils and special specific herb medicines. But wow the one that absolutely rocked my world was the milk, sandalwood and herbal medicine running back and forth on my forehead, falling down through my hair. The effect of this after its completion is amazing. I have never felt so relaxed. I still lie in bed at night and try to feel that feeling of the milk flowing over and back... and bring myself back to the wonderful smells and smiles of Santhi Yoga.I could not have turned 40 and a different chapter in my life in a better place... Thank you so much all."

    "I would like to thank all the teachers of Santhi Yoga for the lovely time and excellent experience we had in the YTTC. We received intensive personal attention and the best food I ever had in India. It was really great to do this course in a small group and with good teachers. Thanks a lot!"

    "I loved being exposed to different teachers, different asanas and different methods. Everyone was professional, knowledgeable, fun, patient and interesting. I was always challenged (mentally, physically and spiritually). I will deeply miss all my teachers. I would recommend Santhi Yoga to anyone interested in studying yoga, taking classes or even to come and visit these fantastic people."

    "The program was very well structured and the management was very responsive and responsible. All of the lectures were very interesting and were held by good and qualified teachers. I learned a lot. I really enjoyed the afternoon practical sessions and always left the classes with more energy than before. Overall I had a wonderful experience and have benefitted so much from the classes."
