Reviews Of AyurYoga Eco Ashram
At the crossroad of my professional life I decided to spend some months in India to study yoga and to deepen my own practice. I chosed Yoga Vidya TTC because it seemed the best answer to my spiritual search and to quench my thirst for knowing the real yoga, its phylosophy and its history. I realized only later how much I have learnt there but also the powerful experience I had at Yoga Vidya. Everything there seems to be made purposely to allow you to experience and reflect on who you really are.....and this is the best gift any yoga training could give you. I am happy about my choice and I wish to return there as soon as I could...Learning never ends!
The Yoga Vidya Teacher Training Course has deepened my love and passion for yoga providing me with the tools to teach and share my passion with others. Thank you so much for one of the best experiences ever. I know "life changing " can be used often , but I feel it has been for me, in the way I feel about me, my relationship with my family, kids and the relationships I have every day with friends and family. All the teachers will forever be part of me, Krish with your great knowledge and sense of Humour, Babu, incredible yoga teacher with an incredible voice and such an amazing heart. Swami, every time I look at back at my pictures from India and I see you I instantly smile, you made philosophy interesting and fun, I will never forget the Spider story. Sashi the patience, experience and explanations whenever we had anything we needed deeper understanding off was beyond words. Hope to be back one day to see you all again :-)
I signed up to deepen my own practice, learn and to find an answer how to intergrate the beautiful yoga philosophy in my western lifestyle. It brought me a change with a deeper understanding of yoga and life itself. And I discovered I love teaching, I love sharing the energy, it makes me and my students smile so much! The Yoga Vidja experience was the last little push I needed to turn my life in a more positive and tranquile gear, it deepened and rooted something in me that is keeping me on the path. Make the choice... Don't look back, that's not the way you are going. Just inhale the good shit and exhale the bullshit.
I am so pleased that I decided to take my TTC with Yoga Vidya - it was everything I hoped it would be, and more. The balance of asanas, mediation, theory and philosophy was just perfect. The teaching was traditional and authentic, plus I very much felt that Krish really cared about what he was teaching, and was aware of the Western backgrounds that a lot of us would be going back to teach in. I have come away with such knowledge and insight - I almost wish I could do it all over again!
Yoga Vidya has changed my life in so many positive ways. I left my months TTC feeling completely ready to teach and with a full and comprehensive knowledge of everything Yogic. All my students love the way I now teach. The course in Kerela was very well organsied, the accomodation was comfortable and the food delicious. Krish is an inspirational teacher. I have recommended the TTC to a number of my friends who have all come away very happy. Since completing my course I had to have surgery for an unrelated issue and Krish has always answered any worries I have by emailing me with helpful sugges ..
I can't. Express in writing how grateful I am to have had the opputunity to meet and learn from the teachers on this course , so much dedication , knowledge , patience and energy was spent on the students you can't help but be a good teacher in return...An unforgettable life changing experience I cannot recommend it enough ..A complete bargain
The most amazing life changing experience - would return to learn from Krish and his 'team' a million times. Highly recommended for anyone and everyone, whether you want to learn yoga or advance in your practice... or if you are looking for 'something' in spiritual sense - you will find it all and will become a whole new person. I will be eternally grateful to Krish for 'opening my eyes' and heart to a whole new me and a new meaningful life.
Upon signing up for the teacher training with Yoga Vidya, I had no idea what to expect. Prior to coming I had limited knowledge of most of the coarse material and the true essence of Yoga, so I was a little anxious to see what lie ahead. Truth is, the bit of anxiousness I was feeling soon turned to excitement and that same excitement has been ever present in my life since the coarse. Yoga Vidya planted the seed deep in my soul, it has taken root quickly and I wake every day with that same excitement to continue to cultivate that seedling and watch the beauty of life unfold as we grow together. With heart felt thanks to all who where part of this journey
Great YTT! There are many layers to YTT with Vidya. For me, the best part was no more migraines! All of the pranayamas helped me get rid of migraines & I cannot be more thankful for that. Overall, an authentic, unforgettable, heart-opening and eye-opening expereince.
Simply wonderful! I let the Universe to guide me on my yoga path and suddenly I found my self in Yoga Vidya Ashram, India! The knowledge, the loving guidance and sharing of visdom gave me the strenght to complete this 200 hrs course with light heart, love and joy! I feel rich in my heart, upp lifted and strong in my knowledge about what yoga is, the practice, spirit and history of it! This platform is easy to build on! My morning routines are the same here in Sweden as I learned in India and it gives me a great joy every day to start my day this way! I feel blessed about meeting all these wonderful, giving teachers and all my fellow participants on the course! You all deserve the best in life and I hope we meet again! From the deep of my heart I Thank You All
Very difficult to express in words the experience in yoga vidya.. I am thankful the journey of my life led me there!
Yoga vidya is the best school for Yoga Teachers! Krish is a great yoga teacher with vast knowledge in yoga! He helped me a lot. it was an amazing experience for me.i recommend krish especially for beginners who needs special attention.I learn a lot and I am still learning!
Yoga Vidya offers an intense month of excellent yoga tuition, but more than that, it offers a safe space to develop spiritually, and to explore one's own personal boundaries. Having done the YTT in 2010, I have been privileged to return to a further two courses as an assistant, and each time, the remarkable metamorphoses that takes place with individual students, and the group as a whole, is an absolute joy to behold. I have made friends that will remain always in my life, and, genuinely have more faith in humanity each time I go: peoples' ability to form a positive synergy during those thirty days is a teaching that remains with one, and inspires one forever. I cannot recommend Yoga Vidya more highly, and look forward to returning to Mysore... Namaste Krish, every time I see you, your skills are even greater! :)
Thank you for the amazing time I had with Yoga Vidya! To find teachers like you, Murty, Sashi, Swami Prabodh...is very rare. You really cared and were very much interested in passing on all you know. Also you live yourself what you are teaching. I hope that many students in the future will have the opportunity to come to your new Ashram! Best of luck for you:-)
It is quite daunting looking at all the yoga teacher training courses out there, I am so pleased that my instincts and fate lead me to Yoga Vidya, the teachers were fantastic always encouraging and helping you through the course, and I feel that they brought the best out of me. My journey since the course has been fantastic my life has defiantly changed for the better, my personal yoga has taken major steps forward and I am now in the incredible position of teaching yoga classes which is so rewarding and life changing. Thank You Krish and Yoga Vidya for making it all possible.
Hi everyone, I did my Training last year with Yoga Vidya Teachers! Since then I've been practicing more and teaching classes. It was a wonderful experience as you all know :) The wonderful Teachers made me who I really am today. My goal is to inspire more people toward a happy healthy living! This is my page and I would be happy to have you join my page.Yoga change life (www.yogachangelife.com). Namaste
I chose Yoga Vidya as I loved the sound of the teachers and the course when I read about them online. The course fulfilled all my expectations and the team of teachers under Krish Varma's leadership was wonderful and engaging. My intention was to deepen my understanding of what we can achieve through yoga. My time with Yoga Vidya inspired that and more. While intensive, the course offered a great balance of all aspects of yoga education. The teaching style struck just the right tone with western students too, with plenty of smiles and humour to lighten the intensity. I can't wait to vista the new ashram. OM Shanti.
Highly recommend this Yoga teacher training!! It's a Soul Searching, Life changing, Yoga journey! I'm forever grateful :) I miss Yoga Vidya!! ❤️❤️❤️
OM......Namaste, had this real life changing experience 1 1/2 year ago. All the good things that happenend after this course still continue. Clarity, serinity, detachment and happiness are the main skills i adopted. India inspires me......this course makes me fly. Thank U to all, Krish and staff.
I was blessed with the opportunity to attend the first YTT at the new Ashram ! It was beautiful! The river was lovely and peaceful. The cottages comfortable and nicely furnished. The Yoga and dining halls were perfect for our practice and sharing meals together. The course was challenging yet enjoyable. I learned so much about Yoga history, philosopy and all other aspects of this beautiful, sacred practice. Mostly I learned about myself! The peace and harmony that is only found within my own heart! The asana practices were challenging and invigorating. I mastered a few poses I did not know how to do before coming. Sujiths' lighthearted and fun energy was contagious and Shashi's peacefulness a comfort. Krishs' knowledge on Yoga and Vedic teachings was quite impressive. I loved Swamiji's talks on Consciousness. "I AM" will resonnate in my mind forever! Thank you to all of you for sharing your Love of Yoga with those of us who were fortunate enough to have crossed your path.
I had a amazing time at Ayur Yoga Eco Ashram. I was welcomed by Krish and the staff with a coconut water. The place is amazing and so beautiful. I did my YTT in December to January and the weather was just perfect. I found doing the course away from home was the best thing I did because I gains so much knowledge and understanding not only about yoga but about my innerself. Would recommend this to anyone. A real life changing experience. A big thank you to all the staff who made our stay very special.
I totally recommend this place. Here you will study, practice, change yourself. The influence of staying here will stay with you and help you to develop yourself at home. I miss it, our teachers and co-students and the yogi atmosphere.Krish, keep it up!
Very beautiful place!! Amazing food! Excellent teachers! Lovely souls!!! Highly recommended for everyone!!!
I have finished my YTT in the AyurYoga Eco-Ashram just 10 days ago, so all my memories are still very fresh. I have learned so much during my stay about yoga, myself, yoga philosophy, life... I have learned much more that I expected. This was thanks to an intense schedule and thanks to our teachers who are great people of profound knowledge and passion for transferring their knowledge to others. Great experience, a big thank you to all the staff.
This yoga ashram is simply wonderful. It was truly a life changing experience. I feel blessed to have practiced here with all of their beautiful and warm staff. I am Sat Chit Ananda. My highest regards.
It has been a couple of days since i came back from this magnificent Ashram in India! What ever i say is difficult to express how amazingly organised is this Ashram, with very well educated teachers, always kind and smily staff, peacefull and quiet accomodation, all people in Ayur Eco Ashram are polite, helpfull, friendly and nice and make you feel welcome and comfortable from the first moment! Rooms are clean and tidy with new furniture and very cosi design, nice bathroom, comfortable beds ,lovely view! And the food is perfectly studied to cover all our nutrition needs and taste! Such delicious food even in Greece is difficult to find! I would recommend this place to all people want to discover the real path of Yoga and meditation, and for those who are willing and ready to discover their real self, accept and love it...... It is not that easy but this place is the most suitable one to help you find peace and love inside your heart....!!!! I chose this place trusting only my intuition and i am proud for my decision to visit and study at this Ashram. Needless to say how gratefull i feel to all my teachers and staff there! No words can describe how you all helped me improve myself and expand my knoeledge in Yoga and life in general.!!!!! You will always be in my heart! Be blissed and healthy!!!
My life will never be the same after my experience at AyurYoga Eco-Ashram! I am forever grateful to my fellow peers and my teachers! I learned so much and grew spirituality, emotionally and physically. The staff was incredibly accommodating and the setting was just magical! I will always keep India close to my heart and I will never lose sight of what I learned from some incredibly talented individuals. Thank you thank you thank you! Much love!
This ashram is a little slice of peace and tranquility amongst chaotic India! Accommodation is very comfortable, staff are lovely, the scenery is beautiful and the schedule was not too intense for the 2 week immersion.
Will miss it dearly... what a wonderful experience and such lovely people... Thank you
Amazing experience. My best decision ever:) Miss you all.
I can only give my best recommendations to this peaceful and amazing ashram. So beautiful surrondings, the best teachers, the most caring and helpful staff. I learned so much in the 4 weeks both spiritually, mentally and physically.
I've been home for a week now, and I miss the ashram so much, the brilliant teachers, the caring staff, my "yogafamily" the students in my group, the always delicious food and of course the peacefulness and the view from my cabin to the river. I have started teaching already. I felt ready because of the exellent training I have had and I absolutely love to teach. AyurYoga eco-Ashram was everything I hoped it would be. With love and warm greetings from Denmark and Bodil
Breege • Verified Reviewer 21/12/2015 I've just left the peaceful haven of Ayuryoga Eco-Ashram after 2 weeks of Yoga Immersion. I can honestly say that the dedication of the staff and management is plain to see as they have created a place for yoga practice, reflection, sharing, learning and support. I have had 2 of the most challenging but rewarding weeks of my life here and i will not easily forget what I have learned and the lovely friends I've made. My yoga practice is at novice level and now I feel sure that I can integrate my newly confident yoga practice into my daily life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
I stayed at the Ashram for one month doing the Yoga teacher training program. I was a little skeptical that I would feel confident enough to teach after only one month of study, but the course and teachers were wonderful, I've returned home so excited to start teaching and begin the next part of my yoga journey. Living and studying in a secluded environment for a month is always going to be challenging but it's so worth it. I learnt so much about myself and came away feeling much more confident in myself. The teachers were so knowledgeable and the morning yoga class was like nothing I've ever experienced before! I met some wonderful friends and made memories for life. Even if you're not sure you want to start teaching, its a really fantastic way to deepen your own practice and learn about Yoga. Coming to the Ashram was the best decision I've ever made! With Love - Lizze x
Without a doubt, this was the best holiday we have ever had! Everything was perfect, from yoga classes and philosophy to the amazing countryside and delicious health food. Can't wait to go back!
I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course at AyurYoga Eco-Ashram in June 2014. The main reason I chose this ashram, was for it's beautiful and peaceful settings on a river-front in the countryside. And it did not disappoint! The setting is incredible and all the facilities are great. In terms of the course, I thought all the teachers were wonderful, and I learned so much about yoga asanas, meditation, pranayamas, yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy, and ayurveda. It is a very comprehensive course! The food was absolutely delicious, the students from around the world were great, the staff was very caring and well organized, and overall there is a very nice energy on the ashram. I think the best result was that I felt confident to begin teaching immediately after I finished the course. I can highly recommend this ashram, and this teacher training program to anyone, but especially those wishing to deepen their yoga practice by learning more about yoga beyond the physical practice, and those who want to be in serene surroundings.
I reluctantly left the ashram after my 1 month Indian visa expired. I'm currently in Thailand, I've tried 3 different yoga schools and just cannot settle into the culture here after being in professional and friendly environment created by Krish and Lilly. cannot wait to return
I attended 200 hour YTT in Feb 2015. I anticipated that my experience would be relaxing and fun. I enjoy practicing yoga but I didn't necessarily intend to teach. My experience at the ashram far exceeded my expectations. I learned so much more about yoga than just poses and breathing exercises. The ashram teaches history, philosophy, and culture. I felt so compelled to share my experience that I've been teaching small groups and individuals fairly regularly for a year. Recently, I was hired to teach a yoga class at a yoga and therapy studio for people with depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and PTSD. A typical American trained 200 hour RYT would not qualify for a position like this because of the emphasis right now on yoga as physical exercise in the U.S. The traditional meditation, philosophy, and chanting I learned at the ashram have made me more marketable and flexible as a yoga teacher than most schools. Of course you will still learn asanas but this school teaches so much more. XO I miss the ashram people so much.
Just got home from Ayur Yoga eco ashram and can't wait to go back. Became my new home and family. I feel very thankful for the four weeks of Yoga teacher training and one week of art retreat. The teachers and all staff on campus are doing an amazing job. Very high quality and a wonderful familiar spirit makes it possible to grow and glow! With the teaching I could discovered myself in an intensity I was never able before. ready to teach? More than yes, I feel excited to share.
Journey of a life time! I learned so much from these skilled teachers! The food was lovely and fresh, locally grown of course! The view of the river is spectacular and the birdlife just amazing! Ten thumbs up!
Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of such an amazing place! Great experience, would definitely recommend to everyone xxx
