“I really enjoyed this 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training program. We learned many poses in Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga. We learned Yoga Nidra which was great to maintain team work and the idea that we are all in this experience together. The teachers did a great job of maintaining the integrity of the ashram and the Indian culture of yoga. I would recommend this program to anyone wanting an authentic experience. This was an intensive program but well worth the travel and time.” Nicol, Canada

In these areas, my learning far expected my expectations. In the past, I’ve had limited experience with Yin yoga, and was pleased to learn Taoist philosophy as well. Now I feel qualified to teach Yin yoga. Ram and Kalyani are outstanding teachers and I am overwhelmed by the growth and beauty of the ashram.
