Signing up for Samyak Yoga's Ashtanga yoga teacher-training is one of the best decisions I've made.

I signed up for the teacher-training in Sept 2019 and truth be told, I knew very little about the Primary Series let alone Sanskrit counts and names. Yet being that "fresh energy" I learned as much as I can while I was there and asked questions from teachers Rakesh and Arvind, who are both talented, knowledgeable, helpful and very reliable. Rakesh would lead the morning practice and the asana clinic, while Arvind would lead the philosophy class and the meditation/pranayama in the afternoon. Their energy is just amazing. You will definitely learn a lot from them. Rakesh explains in detail the right alignment in all postures, while Arvind is entertaining and he knows how to engage students in understanding the yoga philosophy that may be hard to comprehend at first. The course is very intensive, and it challenges you in many ways.

When it comes to accommodation, the staff makes sure it's clean (just beware - the mattresses are a bit hard, but it's tolerable for me). Chef Jitu and his kitchen team makes wonderful Indian vegetarian meals everyday. As a solo female traveling to India for the first time, the staff has also made me feel safe ensuring Samyak Yoga's drivers are trustworthy as they picked me up from Bangalore Airport.

If you're looking for a place to reconnect with yourself, gain new knowledge, know more about Ashtanga and its lineage, and deeply understand the philosophy behind 'why practice yoga', this is the place to be. Such a transformative experience and I couldn't recommend Samyak Yoga highly enough.

To be honest, I decided to do this training without knowing if I really want to be a yoga teacher and my yoga practice started years ago but was not regular.
My overall feeling is that this month at Samyak was amazing. We were all so different. Some of us were doing yoga for 15 years and other only 1. It could be quite intimidating first but it actually worked so well! At the end we all deepen our practice a lot and we all learned how to create and lead a vinyasa sequence.

Whatever you want to be a teacher, teaching is the best way to learn. Samyak has given me all the tools I needed to welcome yoga as one of the most important and beautiful part of my life.
Thank you so much.

Also food was delicious (seriously, I’m still dreaming about it), I had a private room but I felt the shared rooms are also very good. The schedule was perfect to chalenge ourselves and still get enough rest to keep it doing with energy, motivation and happiness. I also really liked not being in the city. The place were we stayed is beautiful and full of good energy.

Rakesh and Arvind are the best yoga teachers I had so far. I would like to have more and more session with them now I’m back 😅

The only thing I would maybe improve is to have a bit smaller group but I’m actually amazed how the 2 teachers managed to lead 25 people during one month. Thanks also to Shwetha who took care so well of everyone 🙏✨
Thank you so much all Samyak team

An amazing month at Samyak. Really great teaching from Arvind and Rakesh; and we were so well cared for by Shweta and all the staff. It was an intense month – physically, emotionally and mentally, but Samyak fostered such an atmosphere of love and care it was beautiful. The ashram is in an amazing location, surrounded by sugar cane fields, coconut palms and fields of marigolds and roses. Sitting down by the river to meditate was a beautiful experience. And I personally loved the wildlife – so many amazing birds to see!

Samyak Yoga is a very school. I did Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher Course and was very satisfied with the quality of teaching, the schedule, teachers and the overall level of the school. It as not my first teacher training and still I learned soo much - about yoga philosophy, adjustments, anatomy and much more. I appreciate the personal involvement and passion of teh wonderful teachers. The whole organization was also incredible. I recommend samyak yoga to everybody!

I've just returned from a month at Samyak yoga and can truthfully say it was a wonderful experience. The course is extremely well put together, it's intense but manageable and the standard of teaching is excellent. The accommodation is perfect - simple, but very comfortable and clean and the food is lovely. All in all it's extremely well run with regular inquiries from the teachers making sure everyone is happy with encouragement if there are any issues to let them know as soon as possible. I researched a lot of courses before I chose this one and I am very glad Samyak was my choice.

I had a dream to become a Vinyasa Yoga Teacher and it is now becoming true as I got the 200H YTT certification at Samyak Yoga.
Rakesh & Arvind are great teachers, we have learnt so much in a short period of time but they made the knowledge accessible, progressive and still challenging! The program is really complete with lots of asana clinics, philosophy, pranayamas...
They have nutritied us, with wisdom words and laughters. Not only they taught us how to live a Yogi lifestyle, they act so as real models in this journey, with humbleness.
I am happy to have learnt Vinyasa in the indian traditionnal style, that can really make the difference among other teachers when I am back home in France!
The Samyak family has really taken care of us, since the moment I have subscribed online. I had nothing to worry about at my arrival, during the stay and even at leaving the school...
As a residential program, surrounded by nature, me and my international group, we only had to focus on our practice and learning.
I really loves the home-made food everyday, discovering authentic south-indian specialties!
Wish you all the same exciting, transforming journey!

I attended the Hatha YTT in June 2019. I had chosen Samyak Yoga because it was fulfilling all my criteria and because of all the amazing reviews. I was so stressed before I arrived, that I wouldn't be good enough, that I would be disappointed in some way. But from day one I was reassured buy the kindness, the knowledge and the experience of the teachers, by the friendly atmosphere between the students. It was one of the most intense and amazing experience in my life. It made me so much more confident with my practice and my teaching skills. I wasn't sure if I would want to teach or not after the training, but I know now that I really want to and I love yoga even more than before.
And I could add to all that the delicious (and vegan friendly!) food, the beautiful and quiet place, the kindness of all the staff. I'm so thankful for this experience, the people there and the amazing teachers.
My only regret? That it didn't last longer ;)
For anyone who hesitates, go for it, you won't be sorry!
