Lot of information given about many subject. Holistic approach of the practice. Advices to practically design an ideal yoga session. Humility of the teachers. Detail about techniques, asanas and adjustment. Family athmoshere among students and staff.
The clarity of what to expect in 200h of training - self practice is needed for more time to be ready to be a yoga instructor. All bases are given and curiosity raised on the large subject of yoga then dedication is needed to go further.
The discipline proposed is placing students in front of their sens of effort and mind blocks. It is a delightful feeling to go beyond your limits, seeing yourself and the ones around you improving and growing everyday.

"The training is very good, the masters always are patient"
The master’s peaceful power make me feel so good, I have lost in the modern life for many years, I always can’t control myself. In the school, through the masters method I found myself again, now I have been back to my country for one week, I insist on practicing, although there are many troubles in life, but I can solve it through asana and pranayama. Now I confirm that yoga is the only way to keep me having the peaceful life. Thanks very much

"Respond to the Yoga calling."
Had a wonderful experience with master Surmeet she is a bright soul, focused, dedicated, down to earth, ready to help and happy to see you achieve. I don't understand the below comment on her being the opposite of that - the person who wrote the bad comment barely attended class, and was always late, and was around 60 years old with little knowledge of yoga both physically and spiritually. I actually really connected to the teacher physically, mentally and spiritually. She has the right level for future teachers as she builds ur confidence and make it that yoga is an approachable discipline and way of life.
I'm glad that after many years of practice I got this certificate at an affordable price - within small group (so the focus was always there from the teacher) and in a safe environment.

"Highly recommended "
My first teacher training was in Topanga CA ... my practice defiantly progressed and I managed to memorize the asanas order... but I felt it’s not enough, so I signed up for another training in TLV Israel.
TLV training was definitely different from the one in LA, a bit more streaked, hard core sessions , practice of primary series, memorizing Asanas names, breathing, adjustments and more
But I felt yoga is much more then knowing the Asanas names, count and breathing, yoga is more then a sweaty workout that builds strengths and muscles.
I wanted to know what’s the true meaning of YOGA
So I’ve decided to come to the source - to India - Karnataka - Mysore - yogadarshanam.
At yogadarshanam Master Santosh Kumar and his humble crew of amazing teachers thought us the theory, philosophy and the Yoga way of living.
From daily Ashtanga practice, to the knowledge of Iyanger, Hata, pranayama practice, yoga therapy, meditation, chanting, mantras and Mudras, acro / partner yoga, cleansing, I’ve come to understand that yoga is a life time journey ... an ongoing process, a way of living.
I had a lovely month - thank you so much master, thank you Sumit, yogiheesh, Shirihari, and Arpitha
For all the knowledge, dedication, time, support, guidance and much more.
I highly recommend - hope to see you soon again.

"Master Roshan great teacher, Yoga Studio less hygienic"
The 200h YTTC from Yogadarshanam in Renshis Fitnesscenter Dubai was extremely great! Master Roshan is an amazing teacher, who made it very easy for us to understand and follow. And he did it with humor =) I can highly recommend him as a teacher!
The structure of the day was good - asana practice in the morning, followed by pranayama practice and afterwards philosphy and anatomy.
I enjoyed it a lot and would recommend to everybody who is looking forward to become a yoga teacher!
