In yogada we have all the facilities for any yoga practitioner, those who are beginning and those who already practice. They care about each person, all the time. the practical and theoretical classes complement each other in such a way that it is possible to practice yoga and take it to everyday life anywhere. I want to attend another retreat and we keep in touch with all teachers even after the retreat. the ceremony was beautiful and I had a lot of knowledge and learning in just one month. they are teachers and gurus, they practice everything they teach and the place is fantastic for walking, rafting and hiking.

"Great Experience "
I’m so thankful for my experience here. I learned a lot about life, the deeper meanings of yoga, and have a new sense of appreciation which I gained after completing the course. Seema’s philosophy classes really touched my heart and I will remember them and her positive spirit forever and I really enjoyed Rajee’s sense of humor and pranayama classes as well. The food was amazing and I loved being able to relax among the mountains every day. Always keep an open mind and heart you will thoroughly enjoy the course and everything it has to offer. (:

"An incredible journey "
I don't know where to begin. I recently completed my course at Yogada and can't express what an incredible journey it has been. The love that the teachers have for sharing, comes shining through. All they want is for their students to get the most out of the experience.
From them you get a real introduction to the complete lifestyle of yoga. The impecibly taught lessons in classical hatha, ashtanga, anatomy, philosophy, meditation techniques and teaching methodology give you the firm foundation to continue learning for the rest of your life.
I can't thank Rajee and Seema enough for the knowledge they have shared with me or praise them highly enough for the beautiful place they have created.

My time at Yogada Ashram was exceptional, we were treated like family by everyone there. Our teachers helped us and really showed us how each position was to be done and showed us how to adjust. While we were there we went rafting, and visited 2 historical places. we also had an Ayurvedic Doctor tell us our dosha and how to improve our diets by giving us cooking classes.
This experience changed me mentally, physically, and spiritually. It was all truly life changing and nothing like I’ve ever experienced before and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
RAJEE and his wife did everything they could to make sure we had the best time there. I am eternally grateful for their hospitality and for teaching me their powerful wisdom.

Thanks to the program I have gained profound knowledge about the philosophy of yoga, asanas, pranayama, alignment and anatomy. Throughout 28 days of YTT my personal practice has grown significantly and I have learned to control my body, breath and thoughts, as well as teach others how to do so.The Ashram is a very nice place to visit. The staff were attentive and made us feel at home. All the teachers were great. I wish I could have taken them home with me. I'm excited about my future as a yoga teacher. Overall, well worth the trip. Thank you so much!!!

"amazing life changing 200 hours yoga teachers training "
I did my 200 hours yoga teachers training there and this was an unforgettable life changing experience for me.
Rajee and Seema are the owners and were two of my teachers and I must say I am forever indebted to their knowledge, their support, and their generosity. I had three more teachers, which were equally brilliant; each teacher was very knowledgeable and passionate about their subject, not to mention that they were all amazing caring people and very helpful teachers. The course was very informative.
The location was so beautiful, the room was perfect, the food was very delicious, I felt completely at home and as much as I enjoyed the peaceful relaxing comfortable atmosphere as much as I learnt a lot about all aspects of yoga, and I’d love to come back for more.

"Amazing staff and teachers"
I’d like to start with India itself, as if you’ve never been, it can be quite overwhelming. From an western eye, things can seem a bit disorganised, but if you keep an open mind and give it a day or two, you’ll soon start to appreciate all that India has to offer. It is hard not to fall in love with this country. Despite non perfect surroundings or situations, things always somehow work out and falls into place.
India’s biggest asset is it’s people. They are genuinely so friendly and helpful and the staff at the Yogada ashram are no exception. From making us delicious food and cups of tea, bringing us on walks, answering all our questions and helping us with whatever they could, they genuinely put their best into making sure we were well looked after from beginning to end.
The teachers at the ashram is a real credit to Seema and Rajee. These young men have so much knowledge and experience and it clearly comes from their own dedication to what they do. They are such nice people and it’s been a real treat to have been taught by them. 100 hours is not enough, but we are forever grateful for all the knowledge we take with us from these amazing teachers. /Tess & Petra

Ideal location close to the river and mountains and animals, and a few shops nearby. Away from the crowds. Excellent teachers who push you to your limits and want you to improve, unlike "commercial" ones who treat you like a customer and just say what you want to hear. Unlike in regular schools, time schedules are more like indication than rules to follow which I get used to. The staff were very helpful and look after you.
