According to Hindú mythology, lord Rama did penance to kill the demon king Ravana and where "Lakshman Jhula" stands today, the place was one time crossed by lord Rama’s younger brother Lakshmana, using a jute rope bridge.

    "This course was very intense, and was very good at times, and very bad at other times. But after taking some time to decompress, I can honestly say I learned a lot there, and enjoyed the time I spent during the training and feel as though I have made invaluable friendships. Despite the difficult times, I would highly recommend this course to others and am even considering returning in a few years for the advanced teacher training."

    "Awesome ! I was excited as I never ever went to a hostel in my life and man here is my chance to live life like a boarding school .Enjoyable if you are able to surrender into the schedule and if you are free bird then maybe it will be trouble time in the beginning. The best thing with them is that they have best of faculty and being associated in past with few other yoga school I can bet they teaches yoga in most original way. I would surely recommend all the promising yogi to come over here and learn yoga the way it has been written in the books. I would like to suggest that they should improve the food quality, of course it’s a three time meal but it should be more nutritious and healthy, I would rate food quality as average and its always better to carry your own nuts as some time I felt I was starving or may be due to excessive amount of practice and shanas..Blessings!"

    "This was one the memorable journey of my life, I would say they have best of faculty and they teach yoga in its most indigenous way. The best thing which I liked about them is that they teach Yoga in its most realistic and raw way although some time it sounds unfashionable but that is what real yoga about I guess. I wish I could have spent some more time .I will look forward."
