      "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."

      "Yoga Vimoksha teacher training is an intensive yoga retreat where we had a full schedule all day long. But with a nice accommodation near the sea, friendly staff and with good yoga teachers we managed to constantly find more energy. I have developed more than I ever dreamed of and I have learnt not only the practical yoga, but also the philosophy, meditations and breathing techniques. We had a pretty strict food diet (sattvic) to follow and after 3 weeks I feel lighter in my body then I’ve done in a long time. We truly did Yoga for the body, soul and mind. I had the time of my life and met so many friends on the way. I can really recommend you to go here and do a yoga teacher training, be prepared that it will change your view of life for the better."

      "I had a fantastic experience with Yoga Vimoksha. They surely exceeded my expectations with the teacher training. The teachers were all very skilled and unique in their own style, I really enjoyed that mix-up of knowledge. The farm house retreat was also just incredible with really friendly and helpful staff, as well as ducks and monkeys patrolling the space. I would recommend this teacher training for anyone interested in starting a Hatha yoga path (outside in nature:), or anyone seeking to broaden their knowledge on yoga as a whole. We were a fantastic crew altogether and I couldn't ask for a better experience. Thank you kindly!"

      "During our stay, we had the chance to meet a very special yoga consultant and an exceptional Ayurvedic doctor. The detox treatment was well organized. The offered massages were unique. When leaving the farmhouse, we were full of energy and with a feeling of peace in our minds. After three months, we are still experiencing a positive influence as a result of the retreat. We will certainly go back again."

      "I am just about to finish my RTYC 200hr yoga instructor course with Vimoksha Yoga at the Farm House.The level of expertise, professionalism and genuine interest in my well being shown by the yoga team has been incredible. The yoga team could not do enough to make my stay more comfortable. The course is fantastic, with a comprehensive, classical approach that is open to new ideas. I am coming away from this feeling like I have learnt a lot more than just yoga.The resort has lovely, clean accommodation. The sizeable rooms have air cons, fans and fridges. It is situated in the middle of a jungle and is quite rural, which makes it a good place to focus on studies, or to just relax. There are on site massage and beauty treatments. It has a well maintained pool and a restaurant. The food is excellent. If you are going for yoga, keep in mind that you will be eating vegetarian for a month and it may be an idea to prepare your body for that beforehand!The resort is not far from Dudhasagar Waterfall, which is well worth a visit, as is the Sakahar spice plantation. If you like elephants, you can spot a few here or pay a nominal fee to wash or ride one. There is a small, local town within ten minutes walking distance. You can pick up a few basic essentials, but for shopping you will need to travel a bit. It is about an hour and a half away from town and the airport, I would recommend the resort's services for a pick up. I would pack a lot of mosquito spray if you are coming before the rainy season. Also worth mentioning, there are lots of monkeys, water buffalo, herons and fireflies to enjoy."

    • Review by Kelly from Dublin, Ireland

      "I arrived in Goa to complete my 200 hour TTC and experienced so much more from this experience than what I was expecting!The preparation before arrival was made very simple thanks to Dr. Anjali, who was always quick to respond to all my questions.The school is located in the beautiful and peaceful jungle away from the hustle and bustle. Every day our monkey friends would come to observe the yoga class. Our instructors Dr. Mahesh and Vinay were absolutely sensational, I don't know of many schools where you can have such personable and inspiring instructors. We were always encouraged to achieve our best efforts and were even welcomed into the local temple! Weekend trips to the beach house were organised for us, and other activities nearby, such as elephant rides in the jungle, tours of the local spice plantation and swimming under the Dudhsagar waterfall were all easily accessible. The food was strictly Sattvic for our yoga course but if we felt the need for alteration this was also easily granted to us.The small class size allowed for plenty of one on one time, and I felt I gained much more guidance because of this.I now feel I have such a broad knowledge of yoga, not just the physical practice but the history, philosophy and therapeutic sides also.A good choice for any budding yoga instructor!"

      " Thanks you to everybody for your kindness and your professionalism who makes me feeling at home in Beach House!And as you know this second stay with you was very special offering to me the chance to realize my dream and the first step of my new life like yoga teacher!Im feeling so grateful and humble entering in the sacred worlds of yogaIm considering myself more like student than teacher but of course I will learn more and more practicing, teaching as often as possible...normally starting right now already at Aix en Provence with group of friends of my friend leaving there who want yoga class.Im French!But Im planning to give class in English and Spanish and German also!! So next time Im coming I should be able to be a multilingual yoga teacher ;) Special thanks to Vinay who suggested to me the first to do the training with you, to Grace to understand me so well and to obtain for me so good opportunity, to Prince to accept it and to the all staff for their skills and their kindness. And of course especially to Reejo who taught me almost everything spending so much time with me sharing his knowledge and theirs skills with art and efficacy!I wish you all the best for each of you and for the success of your Yoga Academy!"

    • Review by Sofia Cserna from Hungary

      "During my time under the tutelage with Reejo, Vinay and Neeraj they all made me feel very welcome. I was worried as I was alone, but they were very calm and welcoming environment for me to learn. I had already studied yoga previously for three to four years, but very quickly I realized that my knowledge had large gaps.Under Vinays tutelage, Ive started to truly understand the yogi way of life. He guided me to see the true potential and strength in ones character which living this way can bring. His way of teaching was inspiring to me because he didnt just teach me postures, but the spiritual trueness of being a yogi. He always made himself accessible to me so that if I had any questions he was available to answer them, whether he was here or in the jungle.Reejos lessons really challenged me physically and pushed my boundaries to make me more flexible that I ever imagined was possible. This came as a shocked to me, as Id never pushed myself so hard before and although it was hard at the beginning, the end results were very fulfilling. Even though he pushed me to my limits, his lessons always had an element of fun, which I will try to adopt when teaching myself.Although I only had a couple of lessons with Neeraji, I still learn a lot from our time together. His patients and approach to yoga is very inspiring. He showed me that yoga isnt simply about postures and building muscles, but can be used to great benefit to improve the lives all elderly and disabled people. I hope to learn from him again in the future.I think the teaching staff at the Yoga Vimoksha has a perfect blend of mental, physical and spiritual attributes. Each teacher brings their own unique style, which meant I covered all element of yoga to a fantastic level.Completing the 200 hour teacher training course, has been a life changing experience for me one that has enriched my life more than I could have ever imagined. All the staff and teachers have made this possible and has inspired me to be a better person. I hope in the future to impart some of their wisdom on my own students."
