"I had an amazing experience with Yoga Chakra and India. My mind, body, and soul feels completely transformed for the better. I learned so much and have made so much progress in my yoga practice. I was able to complete the training, and I am now confident and able to teach thanks to the consistency and patience of Omji. He is really an incredible instructor, passionate for yoga, and very admirable. The hotel I stayed in had remarkable service. Everyone was extremely kind and took care of anything and everything. I had to just get use to the food and being vegetarian for a month, which was probably the hardest part of the trip- but good to detox the body. Thank you so much for everything. I am happy, my soul feels full, and mind at peace. I would recommend Yoga Chakra for anyone interested in yoga, beginners and advanced."
