Reviews Of Akshar Power Yoga
If you love Yoga then you will Love Akshar Power Yoga Academy
Practises in akshar power yoga academy make my innovation of energy. more over in flexibility in body.
We love the classes hear totally the most important part of life it has become.
Only the way to live healthy and peacefully is to practice yoga everyday, that with professionals like APY.
Academy where I find peace and happiness.. Best one for your body mind and soul
Excellent place. Sweet and awesome people all around.
APY which is Bangalore’s over publicized yoga training centre, has been an immense disappointment to me. The yoga classes were great in the intensity and variety. When I joined Teachers training in yoga (TTC) it was a great experience. The experience that followed was horrific. When I got a phone call that my classes for ttc were over and I needed to submit only a written assignment before I receive my certificate, I was happy. They also mentioned that the 200 hrs rule no longer applies. I completed my assignment within a week and submitted it to the Jayanagar branch. The management said that they will revert back to me soon. They was no email communication regarding the assignment that was received from their end (there was a prompt reminder in the case of fees when due.) Then for about 10 days there was no mention of the certificate. When I repeatedly called the jayanagar branch regarding the certificate, the prompt reply was “we have informed grand master we will get back to you soon”. This went on for about 4 more weeks. When an email with the grievance was sent to APY team, I received a prompt call the next morning stating that the tone of the email was not appropriate for a yogini. Which I would agree, on the pretext, if they believed in punctuality and promptness. The call was short and no email followed it. There was again only a verbal affirmation regarding the certificate. After 7 days of the call we again got in touch with the jayanagar team which stated that they are not handling it anymore and we may have to get in touch with the main branch. What this academy lacks is coordination and organization. Every time we called the office, someone else was handling it. Was anyone really trying to get work done? When we again explained our grievance, we were sent an email by the legal of APY. They also accused my family member of threatening APY. When we reverted that our lawyers were ready, the email disappeared from my inbox. (This states that there was no threatening) I re sent an email requesting for my certificate as I had other things to take care of as I am recently married and this certificate is overdue for 5 months. There was no reply. Also the admin of APY team admonished me saying that “she was done with me and never to call her” she was extremely rude, childish and not lending a ear for the students grievances. She was threatening me that if I don’t take back my grievance and say my sorry, my certificates will we withheld. She also gave me an open ended challenge that I can call all the media or “big people” who I may know and get my matter solved. If teachers themselves are setting such examples, what can the student do? Business strategies of APY seem a little off beat and I would recommend students to be more alert. I am unclear as to why I am supposed to say sorry. I will say sorry, as I was brought up in a humble home. Next, my religion has taught me that even though there no fault, we still forgive to retain the relationship. I forgive the situation but never will forget my learning’s from this experience. What I learnt- 1. APY team lacks in promptness and organization skills (too many people handling too many divisions) 2. Student service very poor (lack of email communication and flow chart of how APY works) 3. No awareness on client handling (rudeness, off hand, no clarity) 4. I will continue to study yoga and excel to my God given talents (Definitely) If APY is really concerned they would have this issue resolved by their yogic worldly principles.
Great place. I have really enjoyed power yoga here. Very friendly and the yogis are all excellent. I always feel full of energy after a session. Highly recommended.
it is a blessing to get yoga training under the grand master himself
A blissful Yoga School where one can experience both the physical and mental benefits. Each class is a Unique, Powerful & Energetic class and the effects are so very positive and innumerable. Am indeed blessed to have received the opportunity to experience the Purity and Divine form of Yoga under the guidance of Grand Master.
My journey with APY Kalyannagar started 3 months back when I joined their TTC programme. From the day one, this centre offered a Zen-like calming effect on my mind n body, which I guess is because of the amazing energies existing here. This centre is very special to me as I feel completely at home here. Coming back to my training, within a month's time I could see amazing improvement in my strength, flexibility n balance, all thanks to Parvati n Gaurav. Every session of theirs is unique n special. Their holistic approach of training is what appeals to me the most. Body, mind n soul are simultaneously nourished n strengthened. I'm so blessed to be trained by both of you. My heartfelt gratitude n respects to you both:) Thank you Akshar Sir for giving us wonderful teachers like Parvati n Gaurav who are beautiful human beings as well.
My life changed joining APYA..whenever I crossed the indiranagar center I hoped for a branch to open closer to home and after few months could not control my excitement when I saw the hoarding at kalyan nagar..The reason I love to come here for yoga is Gaurav...he is the best guru one can think of..he is selfless innovative and gives more than 100% to the class..the best part is he works really hard to make our bodies..mind and soul beautiful. ..thank u for giving us such a wonderful teacher who is an amazing human
I have been student of Akshar Power Yoga for more than a year now. The academy gives a flair of “feel at home” intense learning experience. I have learned a lot ; still learning and I know there is lot more to learn . I have never experienced such vivid set of Asana practice anywhere; a perfect place to train body, mind and soul . Each time I do a class , I get amazed by the depth of knowledge my teachers have . Special thanks to Lama Sir and Senthil Sir for making me fall in love with Yoga . Thank you Surya Sir , Shweta Mam and Shilpa Mam for teaching me , correcting me , guiding me .. My heart full gratitude to Grand Master; doing classes under guidance of Akshar Sir is such a divine experience. I will be obliged if I have collected a drop of water from the Ocean of knowledge. Thanks Manisha and Malini Mam for being super accommodative and wonderful. And love and regards to my bunch of lovely, lively and enthusiastic fellow practitioners … It's a great team altogether :)
After joining Akshar Power Yoga Academy at Kalyan nagar, under the efficient guidance of Parvathi Krishnamurthy my guru , life has been really good and after every yoga class my power of concentration has increased to the best and my body has become more agile. Thanks to my teacher Parvathi as she has adopted the best way of teaching yoga and finally the best you gain from her classes is abundant positive energy , which has helped me in treating my patients, performing long standing surgeries and being enthusiastic through out the day in spite of being obese. Thanks Parvathi for your wonderful teaching and guidance .
I enrolled for the TTC program at Akshar Power Yoga Academy in 2015 and it's proving to be one of my better life decisions. The nature of APY is warm, generous, wise , kindhearted, powerful and most loving. The teaching here is fantastic and there's never a dull moment during our weekend sessions with Grand Master Sir. APY has telepathic abilities among many of their other divine powers and they know what is best for you. APY, you truly are a magical place and I feel so very blessed. Here, everyday we move an inch more towards good. You're transforming lives and changing the world one yogi and yogini at a time. _/\_ Thank you APY!! :) Jai Jagannath.
Akshar Power yoga can give you the best experience of yoga. Once you join class, you'll never feel like leaving. It has changed my perspective on so many things. The teachers there are so so inspiring and kind. I'm honoured to be trained under Akshar Sir and Bindu maam.
The best place ever to explore your flexibility and becoming fit ,learning from the grand master is excellent experience . Bindu Maam is amazing and inspiring teacher ,she makes all complicated asanas very easy ,you feel so happy at the end of the day that you can do the asanas with ease ,after joining apy I'have become addicted to yoga I am proud to be a part of this fantastic family that is Akshar power yoga. .
I was very casual about my body weight and unknowingly this was gradually making me inactive. I used to feel bloated and tired throughout the day. One of my friend’s like on facebook; made me think of Akshar Power Yoga Academy’s Intense weight loss program. I joined them the very next day. First day, it seemed to be pretty difficult as my body was not used to the moves. But, teachers @ APY helped me to understand my body limitations and to keep on trying hard. In 2-3 days, I found that it was not difficult at all but more scientific and result-oriented. In just 15 days, I lost 4.5 kgs and my energy levels were very high. Thanks for rejuvenating me, APY.
A big hands down bow to my fave Yoga Studio. I have joined Akshar Power Yoga academy 4 months ago. Frankly speaking i dont have any idea about yoga, but i seriously wanted to put down weight and build up some stamina. After attending Swathi’s (My instructor) classes over a period of time, its like a dream coming true when i had put down ~7kg. The caliber of instructors is uniformly high. What I especially appreciate is the variety between classes and the effort instructor put in to to keep classes fresh, challenging and fun. She walks through each pose she calls, telling us how to adjust our feet, our shoulders, where our hands should be, what we should be striving for. She actually encourages us to go to the edge of our practice… I look forward to continuing my practice and feel lucky to have overcome my disinterest in exercise
APY has helped me a lot too. I am undergoing a regular 1 hour training and have been attending the same, since the past three months now. The fact that it brought a lot of discipline in my life and acted as a stress buster along with miraculous weight loss motivated me to attend the classes and I pretty much agree with everything detailed in the testimonials above. I would definitely recommend APY to anyone.
I believe Yoga is a form of exercise that everybody needs to do irrespective of what other work out regime they follow….Today, Indian Urban LIfe Style has increased our stress levels; Especially for working mothers who actually do 48 Hrs of work in 24 Hrs. Adding minimum of 3 days of yoga in a week, sure works on overall well being – Body, Mind and Soul…If done right and taught by the experience instructors, the effects are Magical!!! At Akshar Power Yoga Academy, I find each class is scientifically designed and differently structured to make it interesting and effective. Experienced Instructors like Deelu, Swathi and others deliver it so skillfully with personal care and passion. I joined Akshar 4 months back with the intention of managing my thyroid levels (Thanks to the stress we carry) Apart from building strength, flexibility and weight management. My busy schedules allow me to do 3-4 classes a week and I enjoy doing each one of them, looking forward to attend the next one. I am happy that Doctor has asked me to stop Thyroid medicine. Today, Yoga has become part of My Life Style!!!
I wanted to write you a note to thank you for all your hard work and inspiring classes. I’ve been lucky enough to participate in sport for many years and know what it takes to play sport at the very highest level, as I turned 50 my mind still thinks I’m a champion but my body is not quite there!! I have never participated in Yoga before but since taking the Akshar Yoga Classes I have learnt so much more about my body and how the mind & body can work in total harmony. The classes have helped me recover more quickly from running, street workouts and time in the gym, I’m more relaxed, flexible and have more energy to take on the challenges of the day. A result of your of your classes I came second in in the 50 –60 Age Group at the World Bangalore 10KM Race. A huge thank you to you and the other Akshar Master Instructors for being so inspiring, encouraging and truly changing peoples lives.
Akshar power yoga – this is something that has become part of life . Love the systematic approach to good health , mind and energy . They make you extend yourself beyond what you think is your limit. This institute is part of my extended family . I love their care and affection. All the yoga masters are great . Ever smiling Lama Sir and calm & quite Parvathi are my favourites . I feel completely energised and feel at peace after the class. Similarly my experience with Grand Master during the Mandals were amazing. You can feel the energy when you are with him. I think I’ve become addicted to this experience and love being like that
Staying away from family and having outside food 3 times a day, made me bloat up especially around my belly. Running, jogging and gym – nothing seemed to work. Just then, I heard of Akshar Power Yoga Academy’s intense weight loss program and joined it instantly. I lost more than 4 kgs in just 15 days. I was back into my college jeans. My family members were glad to see me back in shape and more active. Thanks to APY
My experience with the APY TTC program has been overwhelmingly positive. I have been amazed by the “leaps” in my overall fitness and spiritual consciousness since I first began the program and I am positively owe these “growth spurts” to the incredibly competent and gifted Master Akshar. The TTC program has provided me with the valuable guidance and support to help me reach new levels in fitness journey and realize my strengths .I am forever thankful for the positive strides that have witnessed during this program. A simple “thank you” will never be enough
Joining Teacher training programme at Akshar Power Yoga centre was one of the best decisions I have ever taken. It changed the way I look at life and my health. Akshar Sir is a true inspiration who turned a person who never paid any attention to fitness into a fitness freak. These 3 months with the academy has given me a new confidence and passion for learning more and more. Thank you so much Akshar Sir and the teachers who inspired me to work harder every day, Parvathy and Lama Sir.
It has been a great journey… body and mind, building strength and agility, an investment in self. Thanks to the teachers for their intense effort, with great sense of purpose. Lost about 10 kgs and healthy, greatly relaxed and a calmness that is cherishing.
Hi! All I want to say is though I have attended very few classes at Akshar Power Yoga, its always an enlightening experience everytimeI am there. Mostly I am being trained under Swathi. She is extremely active and sharp as a trainer. She really guides people efficiently. She takes personal care for every student and corrects their poses. She is very warm and nice and above all perfect as a trainer, with respect to her body language and approach. Swathi as per me is doing great job. I have met Master Akshar once and it was amazing experience. He comes across as a very balanced and extremely composed human being. I love being associated with Akshar Power Yoga. I am sure I am going to be associated with you for ever because I am fitness enthusiast myself. Lots and lots of love stay as warm as you all are always. Thank you.
I’am a student of APY. By profession, i’am a product manager in high tech industry. Since a long time I had been in search of alternate career option, something I could do part time now & full time after I retire from corporate life, something I’am passionate about, that didn’t have age limit. My search came to an end at APY! Some form of physical activity has always been inclusive part of my lifestyle for as long as I can remember, be it sports, trekking, gyming, group exercise classes… been there done that. I had been practicing yoga on & off for over 10 yrs, when I heard about APY’s TTC programme and decided to give it a shot. After having been part of APY family for five months now, I think this was the best decision I ever made. I found a guru in Akshar Sir & lovely group of friends in the APY team. APY is now my “go to” place to find peace & balance whenever I feel distressed. What I love about APY is the eco system it provides which encourages me to push my limits, believe in myself & try new things without the fear of failure. Even in my wildest dreams I had not imagined that I’d be given the opportunity to start teaching group power yoga class only after three months of joining APY! I’ll forever be grateful to Akshar Sir for having believing in me & giving me this opportunity. I hope to continue to be part of APY family always, and learn and grow.
I joined the Teachers Training Certification – Basic/ Intermediate Course in April 2013 after much hesitation but the experience since the time I have joined has been over the top for me. It is a very well integrated program consisting of the following: 1. Yoga asanas & practice 2. Geeta slokas, their understanding & interpretation 3. Diet counselling & discussion 4. Nuances of leading a class & care for students 5. Monance Meditation 6. Integrated sports & recreation activities As part of the program, I have experienced a sense of positive energy and vibrancy with Grand Master Akshar and other senior teachers & students. Practicing asanas with the team for me suddenly seems like that my body and mind is going upto a different level of energy. The experience has not just been doing the asana but to experience it so that the body imbibes it. When I met Grand Master Akshar in Feb 2013 to discuss about the TTC program – he said “Yoga is going to bring a lot of happiness to you”. It is really true for me – I feel different levels of energy within myself at workplace, at home, worked on new ideas etc. Very early in the program I understood that the standards are very high – 100 percentile is what is needed to become a teacher which just re-iterates the standards of being a teacher. It’s a different approach with precision and accuracy rather than just doing the asana as an exercise system. Each week has been better than the last week in this program.
Hiya All. An old Adage speaks of a healthy mind in a healthy body and I have understood the significance of this at APY Academy. Being a lawyer by profession, I have uninvited stress both physical by mental. APY happened by chance. I always felt Yoga was for the not so active ones. Due to severe back pain I was advised Yoga. I tried the demo class to understand how it works. Its been two months and i am loving each day at APY. Within a month I lost 3 kilos as well as achieved a toned body. The combination of Yoga and Cardio has pepped up my passion for exercise. I think healthy and feel healthy because I Believe in the goodness of Yoga. Special mention about Jatin Sir, for instilling confidence in his students by chalking out intense and dynamic variations in the workouts for each day. I look forward to a new day of learning and hard work at APY. Honest efforts yield honest results. Thank you APY Guru’s.
Namaste I started going to Akshar Power Yoga center over one and half year, and it has significantly changed my life. I had no idea what yoga was about and have benefited greatly from it. I couldn’t be happier or more surprised of how profound change it has had on me. I have developed calmness; I never knew was possible just from doing the Asanas. Being a teacher and managing kids of age group 6 to 12 years is a stressful job. After starting yoga at the center, I am completely free from stress and my patience, energy and efficiency level has gone up by 90 percent. It has also helped me to be more focused and disciplined at work place. What keeps me an active member is not only the classes, led by caring and knowledgeable teachers, but the sense of community that I feel when here? I sum up my introduction at Akshar power Yoga center as ‘the best thing I have ever done for myself’-physically, mentally and spiritually. I started with no experience or knowledge of yoga and could have never imagined how much something could enhance my whole being. I found the practice took me somewhere quietly inward in such a way that I remember having this blissful feeling of visiting an old friend. I have benefited from classes with every teacher and love the attention the teachers give for each student.
I Began my Yoga Journey in 2011 at Akshar Power Yoga Academy. Since then Power Yoga has gradually grown on me. I completed my Basic and Intermediate Teacher Training Course in 2012 under the excellent guidance of our Grand Master Akshar. I always felt physically and mentally content after every class and noticed how my stamina, health and flexibility had positively improved through the course. Akshar Power Yoga has certainly transformed my life, physically, mentally and spiritually. Learning to balance through the beautiful transitional flow of asanas, I have definitely gained a sense of awareness in my life. On a deeper level it has enabled me to channelize my energies and helped me to connect within. Today, I am deeply dedicated to my regular practice of power yoga ..embracing myself in the moment with all my heart in every session …Akshar Power Yoga has now become a ‘way of life’ for me .
Body weight was never a problem as per my understanding. I joined Akshar Power Yoga for holistic fitness. APY Power Yoga led to a transformation in my approach towards life. When doing twisting and turning postures, I realized there was some fat around my waist that I needed to lose. I took the challenge and joined APY’s intense weight Loss program and to my pleasant surprise, I not only lost 3 kgs in just 15 days but also toned my abs, arms and thighs. I continued with APY joining their teachers’ training program and have found a new meaning to life as a ‘Power Yoga teacher’. Thanks Akshar Power Yoga Academy for giving me renewed confidence to take up new challenges in life.
Let me start by putting on record the exhilarating experience at Akshar Power Yoga Academy. It is a wonderful Academy run with lot of professionalism at the same time not so rigid so as to forget the customer/students convenience. One thing which stands out with APY is that it is not a money making venture unlike so many yoga academies. It shows the flexibility in its curriculum ( has to, after all yoga is also about flexibility!!!!!) and takes care of the convenience and comfort level of the student. I joined APY with lot of apprehensions because for me yoga meant ..no sweat..no running…so no physical activity!!!!!. BUT….it all changed when I realized that its all about the whatever I have mentioned above and much much more…I was surprised at myself when I found myself joining the TTC…and the best part is…it came from within…and to my opinion that’s what should be the foundation/ core of any teaching. Keep it up Grand Master Akshar its been a pleasure interacting with you and the teachers. For Swathi: Few words about the lady with no Spine( Swathi.)…OMG one has to see it to believe it…yes my back aches just looking at her!!!!!! One of the instructors whose class is just wonderful and I think we all enjoy the flow and smoothness of it. Its really commendable to see the ease with which she takes you through all the difficult routines and the best part is, its never the same so you are always wondering whats new today!!! And one crib I do have is the counting method she uses when she has put you on hold in an asana……the count of five seems like a count of twenty!!!!( Grand Master she takes after you I believe because I have seen the same counting method with you also!!!!) Jokes apart the professionalism displayed by her and each and every instructor is really commendable. I wish her all the best.
Akshar Power Yoga, has enriched my life beyond imagination. I used to be filled with anxiety and get irritated easily. That has changed and its a new ME who handles life with calmness and serenity , of course it has done wonders for me physically . But, its the overall impact on my life that has come about thanks to Akshar Power Yoga that needs to be felt and is beyond description.

I joined APY in January 2011 and soon completed the Basic and Advanced TTC Program. And I am now part of the Masters Level Course. I feel that I am a totally new person ever since I joined the Academy. I am able to manage all the various roles I play in my life with a better sense of well being and balance. I am a full – time working professional running my own financial advisory business , and taking care of my parents, my daughter and my home , and I also have various other social and public initiatives that I am part of today. Regular disciplined practice of Akshar Power Yoga and the study of our Scriptures, has given me the energy and drive to do much more in my life. I am proud to say that I am now also a franchisee of APY Academy and have set up a center in Malleshwaram in February 2014. The center is very traditional and has a serene setting amongst trees and nature. We now have over many students learning APY from this center in a short span of 2 months. Thank you Akshara!
Me and my family are big fans and supporters of APY. It offers a whole new dimension in bringing together well being, spirituality, social responsibility and community. Kudos to Akshar and his band of dedicated staff for their passion and commitment. Cheers. Anil
