    The 200hr TTC at 1000 Petaled Lotus was truly life changing. Dr. Kasi and his team are a wealth of knowledge and experience. They are professional, kind and most importantly patient. The day the course ended, my heart broke. Their guidance felt like a warm blanket. And although they prepared us for this moment, I wished the course never ended. It truly changed my life and the team will forever be in my heart. Will definitely be joining another TTC with them soon.

    Completing the RYT 200 course at 1000petaled lotus was a transformative journey that far exceeded my expectations. The instructors dedicated ample time to teaching not only the physical postures but also the deeper understanding of our bodies and how they move. Each session was designed to progressively enhance my learning and personal practice. Every day, i found myself overcoming my physical limitations and grasping the essence of each asana and the anatomies involved. What set this experience apart was the emphasis on the philosophical and mental dimensions of practicing yoga. The learning experience encouraged self-discovery, and growth. It was a deeply enriching experience that has prepared me to guide others with confidence, compassion, and knowledge.

    Thousand Petaled Lotus is a fantastic yoga school and studio. I have learned so much from Dr Kasi and his wonderful team, and they continue to mentor me even years after training. The community I connected with during this time still hold strong. I highly recommend Thousand Petaled Lotus to those seeking their teacher training, and also to experienced yogis and novices alike.

    Extremely thankful to Dr Kasi and the whole team of 1000 Petaled Lotus Yoga Academy for guiding my journey to yoga, it was enlightening and unforgettable experience for me. Very well structured materials in combination with physical practice helped me build confidence and provided solid foundation in the art of Yoga. Not only was I given the tools to observe and understand the patterns of people behavior, but most importantly it gave me thorough understanding of who I am and improved my mental well-being. After completing this course I am more than encouraged to continue my yoga learning path.

    Dr Kasi is very knowledgable and has credibility when it comes to understanding true yoga philosophy. You are basically learning from an authentic source who's background and career is deeply rooted in this field. Also alot of time and energy went into helping me as a total beginner to yoga work on my flexibility and tailor made plans were created to help me get quicker results in improving my flexibility which I was deeply grateful for.

    It has been a journey that I will be forever grateful for and it was life changing for me. I am so thankful to my lead trainer Dr. Kasi Sir who was so encouraging, supportive and inspiring… his way of teaching the anatomy n philosophy was phenomenal…The way he teaches the lessons and asanas will remain with me for lifetime and all the other teachers were also amazing and their attention to detail was the best thing and I feel one of the best decision was to take my training in this yoga school and I just loved to be the part of this school.
