Not so long ago, Bandra West wasnt so full of restaurants, designer boutiques and the ooze of urban coolness. But it has always been a laidback suburb. Dotted with crosses and churches, its streets held a largely Christian community that dwelled between small former fishing villages. So modest and sleepy was this place, at one time even taxis found it difficult to ply Bandra's narrow lanes.

From the middle of the 20th century the west-side, called Bandra West, evolved into something considerably trendier. Popular - and quality - restaurants began to spring up. Together with those churches, they became the iconic landmarks that now guide locals and visitors that hop in and out of the many bee-colored rickshaws swarming the area.

    "The Yoga Philosophy Course gives you a good knowledge and understanding of the Yoga Sutras and Bhagavas Gita. It leaves you thinking about your individual path, and your connection to this physical world, and gives you the practical wisdom to navigate through the challenges presented to you in daily life.I really enjoyed this course as it was a great balance between theory and practice. Personally it was a great way for me to begin to understand the Indian culture. I loved the lunch every day. It was healthy and satisfying and the caf was an excellent venue to get to know other people in the course as well as to discuss some of the course content."

    "The Yogacara TTC was an amazing way to advance my personal yoga practice and delve into yogic philosophy/sutras. It was remarkable to experience the application of yoga in my every daily life. Each course instructor specialized in a particular area and gave great depth to each class with their area of expertise.While the teacher training component is valuable and central to the course outcome, the platform for personal development during the course is remarkable. Radhika is supportive and really guides students through the waves of transformation that are possible during the course. I could not have asked for more in 5 weeks! I look forward to staying connected with Yogacara and the community it supports."

    "The TTC program at Yogacara was a memorable and life changing experience. The Yogacara curriculum is the most complete and unique you will find anywhere, and the instructor are an inspiration to all of us. I have learned a lot not only about yoga, but about philosophy and about myself. It was the best decision I've taken in a long time to spend those weeks deepening my yoga practice and awakening my spirituality. I highly recommend the Yogacara TTC program to anyone who has a real interest in Yoga. Each class will complement each other and by the end of the course you will have a great understanding of what yoga really is and how to apply the yoga way of life as you go back to your normal routine. Thank you so much everyone at Yogacara for a wonderful experience! I look forward to returning for the 500h program!"

    "The Yoga philosophy course has given me a much clearer vision of my inner most being and my inner world. I am grateful that I followed my inner intuition to do this course though I am a complete newcomer on the Yogic Path, and neither am I a Yoga teacher. Abhishek, Shailaja and Radhika have all been excellent and complement each other in a perfect manner- be it with explaining the history and background, the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Sutras, and then bringing all of this alive through guidance and practical implementation into daily life, to create a more fulfilling life experience. The course has been spiced with a lot of information, and it has been a revelation for me to see my life clearly. I enjoyed the whole atmosphere, the students, the daily sattvic yogic lunch, the discussions, and the exchange of thoughts."

    "I got a lot out of the yoga philosophy course; a deeper understanding, and more clarity about myself, about the yogic path, including my remaining questions about the path of yoga. I feel motivated to continue my study and development with more discipline. And the deliberate creation track is exactly what I need in the coming year."

    "The yoga teacher training has been a great personal challenge as well as a fantastic human experience. I would not have been able to complete it without the constant support and dedication from Radhika and the entire Yogacara team. They have welcomed us every day and created supportive learning atmosphere around us. I particularly enjoyed being trained by multiple teachers, each one of them an expert in their respective fields. The TTC is now over for me, but it does not mean I am done with Yogacara, as it has become my second home and the beginning of my path of yoga."

    "I had been offered interviews by graduate schools in the US that I had applied to earlier on. I was nervous and in a chaotic state of mind. I started attending Iyengar yoga sessions at Yogacara, under the able guidance of Ms. Radhika Vachani. After the very first session I felt calmer. With every session, my thoughts became more focused and my temperament more tranquil. It was truly an experience of self-discovery that made me more confident and fearless.Apart from helping me from a mental perspective, the sessions made me feel physically stronger and more energetic. The peaceful and paradisiacal location takes you far away from the hectic Mumbai lifestyle; this coupled with guidance from highly skilled and enthusiastic instructors assures physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.I highly recommend Yogacara to anyone who is interested in self-enrichment that transcends the materialistic realm."

    "In 2004, at age 56 I had a heart attack. All the chambers of my heart were badly damaged. Two years later on June 14, 2006, I had a medical examination and the report showed large area of infarct involving the apex, septum, and anterior wall, and small areas of inducible ischemia in the apex and apical inferior wall.In other words, the doctors informed me that I had badly damaged arteries, and dead tissue and cells in the myocardium region of my heart. I was told to expect these areas to never recover again. I continued with my check-ups.I joined Yogacara, and one year later on September 30th, 2011 went for another checkup. My medical reports stated: No further evidence of inducible ischemia anywhere in the myocardium. The muscles, tissues and cells of my heart had regenerated, and my heart is now functioning as normal.The only change in my lifestyle had been the incorporation of Iyengar yoga under the able guidance of Radhika Vachani, with pranayama and meditation, three times per week at Yogacara on a very regular basis since July 2010."
