Reviews Of Kailash Tribal School

Jean Itier

I have spent the last few years of my Yoga practice wondering what it is about Yoga which makes me feel the way I do. I could never put these feelings into words and even after the Yoga teacher training I took in Rishikesh, I was just as clueless by the end of it. The advanced course has allowed me to finally understand the relationships between my body, mind, spirit and breath. I now, more than ever, feel connected to the world around me and my true self. It is thanks to your modern, scientific and spiritual approach that I was able to make sense of Vedic philosophy and integrate it into my practice and teaching. Just like words cannot describe our connection to greater things, I find myself unable to express how much the Advanced teacher training Course has brought to my life. I am forever grateful for what you have taught me. THANK YOU! Om Shanti!

I have finished my 200 hour yoga teacher training at Kailash Tribal Yoga School in Mcleodganj in the Himalayas. Yogi Sivadas is a divine blessing to this world. Sharing his seemingly infinite knowledge in a comfortable environment filled with humor and respectful expectancy of the individual. He patiently encourages his students to become their own gurus, by enlightening us with such valid ancient wisdom to be at peace with ourselves during every moment of our lives. Come here and you will wake up every morning to a symphony of birds, stepping out onto your personal balcony to the majestic Himalayan Mountains silhouetted by the rising sun, many eagles soaring in celebration of the new day. I enjoyed practicing asanas in the bright airy classroom, learning to practice with patience and given the proper guidance to self heal the injured back I had arrived with. The uniforms were comfortable, an unexpected welcome change to the western yoga pants I had grown custom to. I will miss being lulled into Shavasana at the end of every class by the transcendent voice of Yogi Sivadas. The surrounding area has everything a person could need. Although I had my own kitchenette, which was a welcome luxury at times, there are so many cafes around with a variety of cushions at such affordable prices, I ended up only making tea and eating fresh local fruit at home. A reliable fast laundry service is just above the stairs, if you don't feel like hand washing. I am wishing and encouraging every one of my friends and family to come and have this experience as I have. The world would be a better peaceful place, starting with peace coming internally from each individual.

I came to the 200 hrs yoga teacher training with precise intentions: I wanted to learn and experience yoga in a suitable way for me: within a small group of people, with an inspiring and dedicated teacher and within a peaceful set up. To start with it, all of the above worked out, but so much more as well that I could not have dreamed of. The month spent at Kailash Tribal School of yoga and holistic healing with Yogi Sivadas and 11 beautiful fellow students, was one of the most rewarding ones in my life. It was truly an experience; a journey within that gives you a taste of your true nature and the tools to create your own sattvic life in a holistic way that unifies the body, the mind and the spirit. On a practical level: If you enjoy having open discussions about all questions of life, yoga or whatever the syllabus is inspiring you to think about in an open-minded environment, then Yogi Sivadas' school is the place for you. He is such a knowledgeable person that lives to share his wisdom - a wisdom worth being shared in the world! Thank you so much! Michal Antonovich, Berlin,

Kailash Yoga School was a life altering experience and Yogi Sivadas a true blessing to this world! His passion, energy and wisdom that he departs on the students is extremely inspiring. His spiritual and mystical mind coupled with his scientific approach to the themes in the course made a westerner like myself able to understand it all in a holistic way. This yoga course has been one of the most gratifying experiences of my life and it was all because of Yogi Sivadas - a teacher that allows you to become your OWN teacher and lets you find your own way instead of trying to mold you into something you aren't. Thank you again Yogi Sivadas for helping become more mindful and aware of my true nature. I hope to be back in India soon!

I have been studying the 200hrs teacher course with Yogi Sivadas and decided to also complete the 300hrs as the course was so wonderfully structured. The amount of knowledge, which is vast, opens new doors and pathways. What I always deeply appreciated while being with Yogi is that he wants to make you an independent teacher with creative thinking rather than just someone who follows the teacher blindly. After 10 weeks, I feel more grounded and am able to make more solid decisions and although I am not at the school anymore, Yogi is always a helpful person if questions come up in the future which he somehow always finds time to answer. I am currently in Rishikesh and have seen some other teachers, but for my taste, they have not the same way of passing on knowledge in a way that isn't neither too technical nor too challenging to understand. He never imposes his opinion onto others and always leaves room for discussions. What makes him a great teacher I believe is his humbleness and his open mindedness as he has been travelling the world and his thoughts are therefore not only one sided. He therefore lives what he teaches. A wonderful environment to practise I've found and although food is not included, it actually encourages you to be more self responsible. I recommend this to everyone without hesitation. Please contact me also on my personal email address if you have any doubts or further questions under Oliver Brandenburg (Korea-Germany) Thank you Yogi Sivadas for a wonderful time of selfstudy, self discovery and self realizatdion.

Mayan Whyte (Yogini Mahima)

I have been practicing yoga for many years, and i decided to do a yoga teacher training to go deeper in my practice and my knowledge of yoga and all its aspects. choosing Kailash tribal school to study was one of the best decisions I made in my life. Yogi Sivadas brought an entirely new perspective, not to mention wealth of knowledge, on the philosophy, psychology, and every other component of yoga. the patience, intelligence, and sense of humor were just a few of the many wonderful characteristics in Yogi Sivadas that made for the best teacher i could have been blessed to have the opportunity to study with. the class was small, just 12 people, which allowed for more personal guidance, and all of our questions were thoroughly answered in the discussions. it is a course that focuses on the functionality of yoga and integrating it into daily life. I would recommend this course for anyone who wants to become a teacher, learn about every aspect of yoga, and efficiently bring to others and future students/teachers the tranquility that living a yogic life has to offer. thank you for the incredible life-changing month; I will never forget it! namaste to all.

Kent Halliburton (Yogi Sandip)

In March of 2015, I took the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course from the Kailash Tribal School in Dharamsala, India. In my three years of world travels, it was truly a highlight experience. Taught from end-to-end by Yogi Sivadas, it was a pleasure to work with someone that not only had clear mastery over the asanas, but more importantly embodied and taught the wisdom of the yogic lifestyle. Yogi Sivadas gave ample time in all classes to allow the discussion to open and unfold, leading the group to arrive at it’s own wisdom. I also appreciated being in a class of twelve students, allowing for each and every student to interact and contribute to the collective wisdom of the course. I came away having two complete yoga classes to teach, a fundamental belief in the wisdom of the yogic lifestyle, and a deep appreciation for Yogi Sivadas’ personal wisdom and dedication to spreading it.

I was recommended to this place by a trusted international yoga teacher. Sadly, there are hundreds of over-filled and badly taught courses out there. This is not one of them. Small groups, no dogma, excellent teaching. Yogi Sivadas is a very spiritual dude with decades of experience. He is very grounded, and balances academic and scientific aspects with genuine spiritual connection. He taught me balance, how to calm my mind, reiki, sound healing, chanting on top of the asanas and biological expertise necessary to teach yoga myself. At one point, seeing I was loving the yogic literature, he brought in hundreds of ancient tomes and surrounded me with them and just let me sink into their pages and wisdom! My point is that he finds your interest and builds around it. At the end of the course I happened to lose my wallet in town but him and his crew looked after me, got me on the bus and even made sure I had enough to eat etc until I got to my next destination. They really care and I can't imagine a better entry point into the world of being a yoga instructor. Samuel E. Raven, London, England

I met Yogi Sivadas in 2013 when I took the 200hs course at his Yoga School. It was such an amazing experiences that I new I wanted to go back for more courses. That happened this year between July and August! Not only did I take the 300hours course that I've planned but also I re took Reiki and Sound Healing! Why? Simply because the learning environment that Yogi Sivadas creates is yoga for the mind! His vast knowledge and modern approach to the ancient teachings of Yoga make his lectures one of a kind. The harmony, and serenity I experienced at Kailash Tribal School is immeasurable! For any one interested in going beyond asanas and breathing techniques, Kailash School is the place. Get ready to experience a journey to the Self and a treat for the mind and soul!’ Namaste, Ivanna

Dia ~ Yogini Deeksha ~ Gypsy Soul

Namaste! Congratulations on finding this gem of a yoga school and this one of a kind teacher: Yogi Sivadas is the reason to come to the Himalayas to study Yoga. I consider myself extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to study for 500 hours with Yogi Sivadas at Kailash Tribal School. This school is a comfortable and compassionate oasis, and feels like home. This is a place where you should come if you want to develop your body, mind, and spirit, all with equal love and attention, without the competition or stress. When you come here, you truly get into harmony with your true nature. Yogi Sivadas has the kind of innate and indigenous knowledge that is most difficult to find, and his familiarity with the western mindset makes him the perfect person to deliver the knowledge in a way that is understandable, graspable, and inspirational as he leads by his own humble and authentic example. He emphasizes tribal knowledge, as the name of the school suggests, encouraging us to remember and embrace our global tribe. Yogi has the most incredible life story that will make you realize that the world is ours, and will make you want to shine your light on as many others as possible, and dance in the beauty of this existence. Kailash Tribal School is all about tailoring the yoga program to the person, and helping you discover what you need in order to make your life balanced and harmonized: in Yoga, in your diet, in your relationships with yourself and others, and branching out to every other aspect of your life. Yogi Sivadas makes sure to always remind us that practice with patience leads to perfection, and practice without patience leads to pain and problems. Join this special yoga family for a truly therapeutic journey, and step closer to discovering the highest version of yourself. I loved the Yoga course so much that I decided to also take the Sound Healing and Reiki Master course that Yogi Sivadas offers, and I would highly recommend them all to anyone with interest in these subjects. I think everyone should take them, as they are like massages for the soul! I felt like my time here at Kailash Tribal School helped me to recharge my batteries and come to a much deeper sense of peace than I have experienced before, for which I will be eternally grateful! If you have any questions, please contact me and I will be very happy to answer any questions and share my experiences. If you want to learn more about my healing journey, or follow my gypsy life, feel free to check out my blog as well; I am featuring an interview with Yogi Sivadas coming soon!
