After walking through a street-labyrinth, we finally got to Somit's place. Everyone was extremely welcoming and tried to help us with everything. Somit's story is very nice, and you should definitely ask him about it. Unfortunately we couldn't try his yoga class as we were only there for 1 day. Food was really good, thanks to Chaina!

The group with which I was traveling spent a majority of its time here at the Yoga Education Training Society. Everyone we interacted with was wonderful and they have a variety of activities available that we could do! High quality yoga classes were available and we took a very fun boat ride across the river.

This was one of the best things I was lucky enough to stumble across on my travels to Varanasi. They really need all the help via work hours donated and funding, supplies etc. we visited a class of students from disadvantaged backgrounds. They were all sitting at their little desks learning. Then we got to take part in a wonderful... More

We have taken yoga in several countries and have found that it is always interesting to see a different perspective; Somit is an excellent teacher who focuses on mind and body,... More
