    I am very happy that i complete my 1st teacher training course from this school. I had completed my course in 2015 with Yogi Raj. He visited to Shanghai and i had great chance to practice with him. He is best teacher i had to begin my Yoga life, begin from basic practice to advanced stage. He is wonderful to teach mantra chanting, Yoga philosophy and anatomical knowledge of each asana. I am ERYT myself now and teaching my students what i had learn from YOGA PADMA RISHIKESH. Thank you Guru Raj for your wonderful teaching. OM SHANTI OM

    The 200 hour yoga teacher training with Yoga Padma was excellent. The training was run by 2 brothers and a third, external teacher. Raj teaches philosophy and Iyengar yoga, Naresh teaches Ashtanga and the external teacher taught traditional Hatha yoga. The whole family is very passionate about their teachings and really want the students to understand and internalise the knowledge. Raj brings stories and humour to the philosophy classes, making foreign concepts easy to understand and the format of the class is more like a conversation than a lecture. They were my favourite part of the course. He also taught us about mantras, pranayama and meditation. The physical asana practice of Iyengar and Ashtanga were both challenging for me. Both teachers bring strong energy to the class, but even though it has brought me to my personal limits on a few occasions, I am very grateful that they both pushed us as far as they did because my personal practice has improved massively and the changes in my body just within the 4 weeks were really noticeable. Anil taught the traditional Hatha class with a very gentle energy and much consideration for his students. We also learned some of the yogic cleansing methods. They operate the school with high integrity and it’s more important to them to pass on the right knowledge and honour the teachings of Patanjali than maximising revenue. I was extremely lucky to go through this course in a very small group size and feel like I’ve gained so much from it. When I spoke with another yoga teacher about this course and what was included, she told me that this is the real deal and sounds like an excellent school. Coming from someone who has done six 200 hour and three 300 hour trainings herself, this says a lot. She also said starting your journey as a yoga teacher with a training that is focused on alignment is ideal. My intentions when I joined the course were always that I wanted to teach yoga afterwards. While we didn’t have too many opportunities to practice teaching during the course, I do feel very well equipped to teach. I don’t want to teach Ashtanga myself, but it helped me to build strength and flexibility during the course. As for Iyengar, I don’t intend to teach alignment yoga, but having the knowledge of correct alignment is invaluable for teaching any yoga I believe. I couldn’t have asked for a more authentic experience to start my life as a yoga teacher. I feel honoured to have learned from competent and knowledgeable teachers who truly care about their students’ progress and wellbeing and I hope to incorporate many of their teachings in my classes. Thank you very very much Raj and Naresh and the whole family for a wonderful experience in Rishikesh.
