    "I had the opportunity to do a 200hr Teacher Training Course with Kamal and Jonatan and I can highly recommend it! The way Kamal adjusts is unique and his power seems to be endless... always smiling, always happy! Jonatan is also an amazing, powerful teacher with a great heart! I enjoyed the time in Rishikesh and will for sure come back!"

    "I happened to visit Tattvaa Yogashala in dropping class. The studio is situated at the bank of Ganges and while yoga practice one can merge into the infinite Ganges. Yogi Kamal Singh is a very energetic and caring guy with exceptional adjusting skills in Asana. Just by his touch one can feel the change in the body and amazed by his own body flexibility. I recommend Tattvaa Yoga Shala for all serious Ashtanga yoga practitioners visiting Rishikesh."
