  • Review by Ann Kristin from Norway

    "Thank you Upaya Yoga! Here I finally found a place to deepen my experience of yoga, beyond the physical Asanas. I arrived in Goa with a book full of questions, now I can actually say they are all answered – and many new ones are added. I feel so able and inspired to keep practicing and experience yoga on my own, thanks to the amazing and diverse team of teachers who is Upaya Yoga. All together leaving me with a greater understanding of the systems in the physical body, mental body and energy body, how they all work together, affecting each other. Upaya Yoga gave me space for experiencing this, at the same time giving the why´s and the how´s, bringing yoga and spirituality down to earth and into the small big things in everyday life, where it belongs. Thank you for giving me the gift of yoga!"

    "The training at Upaya Yoga was a great experience. The teachers were great, involved, professional. The whole program is well shape, the content is really interesting. It could be improved with a little bit more structure."


    "I like the fact that we were a small group of international people as we can know each other better."


    "The location was great, very close to the ocean, the beach was very clean and very few people, it was very peaceful."


    "In another hand, the food at the hotel could be improved as it is quite the same every day and very basic. It should be yogi-oriented more than tourist oriented."


    "Also, sometimes the hotel is organizing party events which is a different atmosphere than a yoga student is expecting. Especially on Sunday evening when student have to wake up early the next day." website, edited

  • Review by Petra from Sweden

    "I had few classes with the amazing yoga teacher Krishna during my stay in Arambol beach in Goa. These few classes were unforgettable and Krishnas presence and teachings skills are the best. Krishna is very precise and he is not farad to tell you when you are doing something wrong, and thereafter help you to do it right. He is a pusher and will push you to do more that you believed you can which was an amazing feeling. I was so happy with Krishnas classes and I would recommend everyone to do yoga with him. He really is the best teacher I have had and I feel blessed having had the chance to learn from him."

  • Review by Christine Holtan from Norway

    "It did not matter that I was in bad shape and had some pain when I started. Krishna is good to incorporate and adapt so that it is possible to take it at your own pace. He put much emphasis on preventing injury and overloading, especially in the beginning, and now the body is virtually painless! . There was great energy in the studio and in class, and I felt welcome right away. We learn a lot while were at it, and there are still lots of laughter and good mood, while we push ourselves as far as we are getting into. Every time I stuff something new and get some more, and it is inspiring to see that the other master more and more. Soon I stand on your head Thank you for challenging, great hours and good teaching, Krishna!"

    "This TTC gave me a good basic to start my work as a yoga teacher. It showed the many different sides of yoga. The diversity of yoga teachers was good, and there was a lot of knowledge to absorb. The body felt great after doing so much yoga in one month. It is nice that this TTC is for everybody, and everybody will get benefits of it, no matter if you are a starter or advanced. It was good to have this TTC as a basic, and be able to build further from her."

  • Review by Hui Hui Yung from China

    "I decided to join the one month yoga teacher training course not only for the certificate, but more importantly I wanted to find out my real feelings about yoga. The whole month, we did a lot of practice every day. It was tough and sometimes I was really exhausted but I was very happy. I have to say it cannot be a more right decision to go there. I have made new friends and learned a lot, not only yoga asanas but also new attitudes towards life. It seems that yoga opens a new window in front of me. I love yoga and I would like to share it with everyone."
