"Very little kindness"

It was impossible not to love Rama and Ambkia they both were exactly what yoga is to me. They were kind hearted, patient individuals. It was an overall agreement that my class learned the most from these two. I feel extremely proud to say I am a better person because of Rama and Ambkia.

"Got my money’s worth"

Made yoga spiritual, as it should be. I learned so much more than I had planned to and I’m so glad I went here rather than anywhere else.

"You can't please everyone!"

I came into this training with an open mind as anyone should before a new experience. When you have unrealistic expectations in your head, of course you are going to be disappointed like some from this program were.

I enjoyed the chanting, food, lectures, Karma Yoga and fresh lychees! I also loved being cut off from society for a couple weeks.

I also liked the POSITIVE people I associated with. It's easy to get your vibe brought down if you feed off other peoples negativity.

For the price you really can't beat this experience or the genuine connections you form along the way. The friends I made kept me sane and I'm so grateful we made the most of this.

*Using this as more space, the character limit below didn't let me get far*

The food is hit or miss not just in quality but in quantity as well!! Some days there were 3 catering pans or soup tourines, some days it was one tray of food. It was insane like they forgot how many of us there were from day to day. *GLUTEN FREE AND FOOD ALLERGEN REQUESTS WERE COMPLETELY IGNORED* several people specifically spelled out that they had either a nut allergy or a fruit allergy on their application and then also had to voice their needs every single day to the same exact staff anyways. Clearly they don't look at the executed forms. Don't let anyone fool you it says you can get asked to leave for alcohol or smoking or coffee on site but in actuality they do not abide by THEIR OWN handbook policies. Everyone completed the program even though there were 7 different students openly vaping, taking edibles, coffee cups and nips in the trash. The coordinator is split in 19 different directions and seems to be the only one there doing anything. She's either incapable of delegating to the VERY FEW staff people below her or hasn't taken time to train them. If you're going to welcome people from all over the world into your property for yoga training you need to be prepared to feed them adequately, and train them properly. Very pushy on asking students to sign on to stay at the ashram which became more alarming, there are even questions about it on the final exam, completely unrelated to the course.

"My Dreams Came True"

Nada yoga, combination of Ragas and Taalas, singing by Rasa and Guruji, took the vibrations to higher concsiousness. I am still singing Bansuri Shyaam ki,. My heart kept crying out of love and devotion. Shri Guru hariji and Rasa are very dedicated and sincere to the cause.

"A lot of spiritual bypassing at Yogi Hari Ashram"

You can receive your certificate in a shorter amount of time than most 200-hour TTC programs. The price is unbeatable for the U.S. (you can definitely find cheaper abroad especially in India). I enjoyed the food and I loved my TTC group. We were only a group of 13 which I liked as opposed to a larger group, and we all got along great. I enjoyed the chanting overall and I thought it was a fun way to start the day.

"Too much chanting and cleaning his house and farm"

The food was healthy; although, fresh fruits were never served. Only frozen mangos and bananas.

"Wow, learned so much, Life changing!"

That it is the real deal. In order to learn you must endure. And the teachers here don't try to sugarcoat it, they teach from the heart the true teachings and wisdom of life so you can evolve. You can grow spiritually a lot!

"Yoga Coronafication "

The ashram is a peaceful place with beautiful scenery. You can really enjoy being away from civilization, and focus on your studies. The workers at the ashram tried everything they could to accommodate us, make us feel safe, and reassure us while we were worried about the growing threat of the corona situation in the United States. There was a lot of work, and studying required to make the 200 hour certification program possible in a two week time frame, but Rama and Rasa were never too busy to listen to our concerns. At first the long hours of sitting on the floor had me feeling sore. When Rama told me I can sit in a chair it eliminated the problem for the rest of the training. Our strict 2 meal vegetarian diet allowed me to lose around 10 pounds. We practiced two hatha yoga classes every day and the backpain that I experience daily began to disappear.

"Excellent! More than I expected."

This 200H training was my ideal experience, so I would like to say it went beyond my expectation. I kind of understood that if I was at the door of true knowledge or yoga path, I would definitely feel uncomfortable at first, I believe many of us really experienced that period of struggling and stressed time, because we won't get used to the life in ashram immediately( or right way to live our lives in the world), we need to struggle against something we have been used to and gradually live on the natrual right path. I learned I need to get rid of my tamas,my ego, a lot of unnecessary stuff which does not serve me any more for seeking for my higher self. I learned the pure joy from giving and serving in our daily karma yoga. Day by day as coronavirus spreaded wildly in the world, we all are facing our challenges in our lives, some students' flights got cancelled, they still stayed in ashram, I can feel everyone is truely grateful for what we have reaped in the last 2 weeks journey. Personnaly I found peace in an intangible way in Yogi Hari's Ashram. I feel so blessed and grateful for everything this training has offered. Rama, Rasa,Utah and Yogi Hari are doing the right thing, they are all lovely. Namaste🙏

I attended YTT at Yogi Hari's Ashram in January 2020. This course laid a beautiful foundation for a sustainable yoga practice in Sampoorna Yoga. Sampoorna Yoga, and its logical sequence developed by Yogi Hari, is a revolutionary style of yoga that deserves to be shared widely. I grew as a yogi and person from the nourishing meals, careful asana instruction from Rama, mantras and chanting in satsang, and the teachings of Yogi Hari. The spiritual teachings here are devotional, but I would not categorize them as dogmatic or strictly within one religious framework which spoke to me. There is also emphasis on how to live productive, joyful, and healthy lives through the practice of Sampoorna Yoga by treating life as a systems based approach, rather than a problem-solution approach. The people who completed the training with me were my greatest teachers and mirrors. I am grateful for my training here. Herbal tea was lovely- thank you tea fairy (Karunija).

"The Yoga of Fullness, Fully and Truly Explained and Taught!"

Thank you so much for the transformational experience and the gift of wisdom through your teaching. I came here to get a Yoga Teaching Certificate which would accompany my dissertation, and I am taking home so much more than I ever could expect. The life in Ashram was absolutely beautiful. I got to experience spending the whole day immersing myself in “Sadhana” - practice, in all aspects. I will not take for granted what an absolute fortune it is to learn, work, practice, and live the wisdom that Yogi Hari teaches us. Om Shantih!

"Let go of your EGO. Feel the bliss of your inward Divinity;)"

Sampoorna Yoga is a complete system and has so much to offer all walks of life.

A+ Hatha,

I am so grateful and appreciative of the experience i could get no where else in North America. I truly appreciated the full aspect of ashram life and the dedication to Guru Yogi Hari.The property is a peaceful Paradise with fruit trees like coconuts which you can purchase chop and drink for $2. I Drank one daily to keep myself hydrated fully. You dive in immediately from day one with Hatha yoga practice twice a day. Book end your day with dedicated, group silent meditation time and shared chanting that unlocks your chakras. It calms and settles your overworking mind so you drop into your body. Live life now.

This a truly an opportunity to let go, Give up your EGO self, delve into true being and let your divinity shine.

Guru Yogi Hari is a genuine, authentic, not messing around and so funny. You can feel his passion and dedication as a kind compassionate and joyous Guru. Leading and sharing the teachings of the the yogic life for over 40 years now. Living On the property helped me to heal from within, find peace and reconnect with my inner truth of unconditional love and joyful bliss that i had recently forgotten. All of the disciples are genuine, kind and willing to be of service. Thankfully, They will not leave you hanging and will gladly show how to become self sufficient to take care of things yourself;)

They are not here to cater to your every whim. So much to SMILE about:)❣️

"Learned much and enjoyed the deeply spiritual experience!"

Yogi Hari’s teachings were right on par with my spiritual studies for the last 40 years. The accommodations were a work of accepting tolerance. My group had such great energy, I cried repeatedly from missing them!

"Om shanti "

I found the way we were guided threw the proper way to do yoga in all aspects of the physical, astral, and causal bodies was beyond anything I ever could have imagined. I love how I found out the true lineage of yoga and not some westernized version. I love the history, all the great wisdom, knowledge and experience I gained. I loved ramas gentle yet firm way of correcting us and guiding us threw Hatha yoga. Thank you yogi Hari for the chanting and quiet meditation in the morning it will be, along with practice of asanas, my biggest take home. If your looking to find out the truth about yoga this is the ashram you need to be at. It was the best way to celebrate my 30th birthday, I’m forever grateful OM SHANTI

"An Immersive Yoga Experience"

From early in the morning till night-time, I learned what a fully immersed experience meant. At the ashram, we were exposed to many yogic paths, and I personally enjoyed learning about Jnana and Nada Yoga. Before Hatha in the morning and after it in the evening, we gathered in Satsang for meditation, chanting and lectures central to forming a foundational understanding of yogic philosophy. Through Guru Yogi Hari's guidance and the guidance of his disciples, we learned so much. Meditation became easier.

I also enjoyed learning about the yogic diet. We followed a vegetarian diet with vegan options. It wasn’t long before I began to feel the benefits of proper eating. Learning about the different food qualities helped me understand why certain foods create lethargy and sickness. Practicing the moderation taught through Ashtanga Yoga helped create the conditions needed to advance my practice.

Yogi Hari displayed great knowledge and the ability to share it with others effectively. This program deepened my understanding of yoga in a way that seems impossible outside of an ashram’s environment. . I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn and teach a classical form of yoga from the Sivananda linage.

"Yoga of fullness Body, Mind and Spirit "

I reside in Georgia in early summer I was looking for a teacher training class to complete a 200 hr yoga teacher certificate. As I was searching the web noticed the Yogi Hari’s Ashram and decided to learn more about it. I purchased the book Sampoorna Yoga and after reading it, I registered for the training in August.

What an amazing journey the life at Yogi Hari’s Ashram it has been and the wealth of knowledge that I have gained during this training.

Thank you to Yogi Hari's extraordinarily teaching Sampoorna yoga of fullness that address all aspects of mind, body and spirit. A beautiful garden of peace and love he has created in South Florida. The garden has fresh organic fruits and vegetables especially delicious fresh coconuts. As we practiced our Karma yoga daily, we worked as a group in the garden and the house to prepare for meals and enjoy along with our practice of yoga asana, singing and chanting, meditation, and study of yogic philosophy.

This was an experience of a lifetime for me and I am forever grateful to Guruji for finding my voice.

I met wonderful people from around the world at this ashram and will continue to keep in touch with them for many years to come.

I will definitely go back for additional training in the near future.

I give thanks to Guruji, Rasa, Radha and Ambika for sharing there blessing of yoga.

Om Shantih, Om Peace 🙏

"June 2019 YTT"

This program focuses on the true practice of yoga which is much more than asanas. The teachers were highly knowledgeable of all aspects and hugely supportive of our learning experience. This is program is a life changing experience and so much more than just a teacher certification course. This is a holistic approach to yoga which is difficult to find in this modern world. The food was good and natural, beds and pillows were comfortable, water was always available, and people were respectful of quiet time.

"Unforgettable experience!"

Where to start ?

I went there expecting a Yoga certificate, I got out with a lifetime of knowledge to put in practice. Shri Yogi Hari is a life teacher. He teaches you respect, humility and selflessness . In exchange for that , he expects “Intense Enthusiasm “ which just means give the best to your teacher , he’s there everyday sharing all his knowledge with us , all he wants back is that we listen , pay attention and practice, because he wants everyone to succeed towards enlightenment. Him and his disciples helped me see a whole new bright life , and I can’t wait to be back.

"New Beginnings "

This place is truly blessed. Never in my life have I felt so much love. So much more than a yoga teacher training, it is an entire spiritual experience, i don't know any place like this. I would recommend this experience to EVERYONE, I wish grade school had been more like this place, I think it is very necessary in today's world for everyone to experience this love and bliss. This was everything i was looking for and i didn't even know it. I am forever grateful for these beautiful people living here. If you want to be happy and peaceful in every moment you need to come here <3

"Cult like feel with very little physical yoga"

Bonding w girls and we were looking out for each other thru the bad times.

Anna Pusztai

from United States, May 2019

The ashram is on a beautiful sacred land. I loved the classes outside. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Food was very delicious everyday, which you can help to cook if you fancy doing your karma yoga sessions in the kitchen. This course will fill you with great spiritual and physical knowledge of the yogic lifestyle. The sequence is a very good base that you can move forward with. I personally improved so much in my practice during the 2 weeks. There is a lot of chanting and singing in this course, which I really enjoyed. Before I didn't really like chanting even Om during a class, now I can't stop it and singing Jaya Ganesha! Just remember this is an ashram, so be respectful and bring some white clothes for teaching and the graduation. My overall experience was great and I hope to be back one day and do my advanced course.

"Room for improvement "

The peacefulness of the ashram was wonderful. Sampoorna yoga is beneficial in ways I did not understand beforehand. I’m grateful for learning a technique that is more traditional versus westernized yoga.

"Life changing experience"

Words can not describe this wonderful place. So peaceful, so pure, so pretty. Yoga classes are professional, consistent and very precise. They will get you out of your comfort zone in one way or the other which makes it a great learning experience. I would recommend this (200YTT) training to everyone, also when you are not planning on becoming a yoga teacher. The wisdom from GuruJi is life changing. And everything in the ashram is focused on purifying your mind and body - including delicious nourishing food. Thank you again for all your effort, love and dedication to making this possible for many.

Om Shantih,

"Confidence In What You Learn"

Teachers were passionate and phenomenal. The location was superb. The Ashram is super peaceful. You will learn a lot about yoga, Hinduism and Ayurveda. I felt confident to teach a class at the end of the brief two weeks. Also they dig into alignment which a lot of other courses skimp through. Great value for the cost.

"Life Changing."

Yoga is more than just Asanas. This training brings together the entire spirit of yoga nourishing the mind body and soul through meditation, music and exercise. Not only did I gain a better understanding of myself and life I also gained the knowlege of yoga from a holistic point which will allow me to teach others its therapeutic benefits. My yoga teacher training at Yogi Hari Ashram was an amazing experience I will never forget!!! Peace.

"Everything I needed "

I just got done with a two week yoga teacher training. It is difficult to leave and return to the world. The ashram is simple and run mostly by volunteers that work from 5am to 10pm and beyond to maintain the place as well as cook, study, chant and more. I learned so much about myself and am eternally grateful for the experience. Yogi Hari made many sacrifices and has spent a lifetime gathering and sharing wisdom and creating a sanctuary for self-reflection and liberation. It is an ashram and not a resort, so go in open-minded, be respectful of the path of the Guru and disciples and I'm certain you will leave a much lighter, happier and more joyful than you have felt since you were a child.

Rama and Sita are amazing human beings. I felt in good hands having them as yoga teachers. They both are so full of knowledge. Food was absolutely perfect. Having yoga on the deck was amazing. Getting to know all the teachers-to-be made the experience so much more valuable. I am glad I got to made such good friends.
