"The yoga course was great, the accomodation not so much"
The course was great, well structured with experienced instructors and plenty of time to ask questions and doubts. The location of the course was also lovely, right by the beach. The food was amazing in my opinion and was a perfect fit for the sort of activity we were doing.

"Incredible experience "
I loved the location, structure of the course. Had an absolutely fabulous time there - course was intense but we had so much fun, and the view of sea makes everything even better. Missing Goa already - would love to come back at some point.

"Incredible experience "
The beach house is such a beautiful location, the rooms are very nice, and the staff are all really friendly and helpful. The instructors were all great in particular Reejo and Arbind. Reejo’s adjustments and encouraging attitude improved my practice by miles, and Arbind’s evening classes were always challenging in the best way. I feel well equipped to start my journey as a yoga teacher because of these two.

"YTT at Yoga Vimoksha was a wonderful experience. "
I enjoyed our instructors Reejo and Arbind. They were extremely knowledgeable and supported and challenged us throughout the training.The materials provided and practice areas were nice as well. We all grew tremendously throughout the training. The Beach house facilities and staff were excellent. Our rooms were very nice, clean, and comfortable. If there was a problem with something it was taken care of quickly by the staff at the beach house.

The vinyasa flow
from United Arab Emirates, December 2017
Location - yoga overlooking the sea has something magical
Quite a lot of free time - great for people who want to combine the teacher training with some down time
Nicely structured program - more physically intense sessions in the morning, theory in the afternoon, meditation in the evening
Program covered all basics, with emphasis not only on postures, but yoga as a whole (incl anatomy, meditation, breathig, philosophy, Sanskrit prayers etc)

Most of the instructors, teachers, staffs, chef are professional, great and nice.
The environment is amazing, it is just located next to the ocean.
Everyday practise with the ocean view is speechless moment.
Food is great, the beach house is a healthy/nutrition based company, the food they provide was delicious and healthy. I felt i was getting healthier day by day.
The accommodation is good, it is a nice area, and just one minute away from the place we took classes. Staff are great, thanks Raymond, he is very helpful and nice.
Overall is worthy to pick this place. Feeling thankful for everything here.

The course was great and authentic. I liked that we learned sanskrit names and the benefits of the poses. The location was lovely-especially the yoga shala facing the beach was awesome. Reejo is clearly an experienced teacher who taught us well and showed us great modifications. Arbind was fantastically positive and supportive. Pjushe shared a lot of knowledge with us-his tips to gain more flexibility was the most helpful. The people on the course were so lovely and from all walks of life- I felt supported by them!

"Une formation très professionnelle ! "
Les méthodes pédagogiques bien rodées et les qualités humaines en lien avec l'éthique du yoga des enseignants. Le cadre magnifique au bord d'une plage de sable blond et une mer chaude dans un écrin de verdure et de fleurs. Le rythme intense de la formation au niveau pratique et l'argumentation théorique en rapport. Le groupe bienveillant de 7 yoginis, toutes merveilleuses dans leur engagement et leur assiduité.

Joaquin and Iuliia
It was a great course.
1 - The place: it was very special to do the teacher training surrounded by nature; 2 different species of monkeys ( macaques and langurs) hang around the place almost every day, beautiful trees, etc. to have the bhagwan mahaveer national park just beside the resort, with the beautiful dudhsagar waterfall, it’s another extra…The rooms are nice; but there is an electrical problem: many times a day it’s running out and back. Those cuts are short but annoying when you are in your room reading or watching TV and when it’s very hot.
2 -The food: the food is vegetarian and delicious. The kitchen service is always ready to listen to suggestions and change. The only thing is that there is lack of protein in the diet; not very good while you’re doing many hours of exercise a day. Also, the amount of fruit is very limited, a small bowl every morning.
3 - The teachers: excellent. With the always smiley and passionate style of Naveen, the very funny and outgoing Ram Krishna, the more technical Reejo and the very helpful with alignment postures Sachit. We couldn’t expect for something better. All of them are always ready to help and very high level professionals.
Overall it’s been a great experience. Highly recommend, cannot imagine something better for the price.
