I did my YTT at Mahadevi Ashram and I can highly recommend doing the training with Arpita and Arjuna who are both incredible teachers. Its hard to describe in words what I've experienced during the training, but I left with a heart full of love and gratitude & a lot of knowledge about spiritual as well as yoga practice. The entire training is very well thought through, with a lot of personal involvement. The guidance and support of both is outstanding. Each day was different due to a variety of discourses, different practices, etc. To sum-up an incredible wealth of knowledge, provided by both of them! I would always do it again, and can recommend the training more than 100% to everyone who wants to become a Yoga teacher or who wants to dive deeper into spiritual practices. Hope to see you very soon <3 x Steffi

My partner and I feel so incredibly blessed to be lead here, to this place of practice, silence and devotion. Arpita and Arjuna hold a beautiful and deep space in which one can dive into the depths of their experience of life, coming out with a deeper understanding of their existence. We completed a 5 week yoga teacher training , and will continue our stay here for another month in private practice. The teachings are profound and clear, coming from direct experience as well as illuminated teachings from the realised beings that have pointed humanity to their totality. A held and safe space to come home to the heart <3 Our hearts will always hold gratitude and love for their Dharma and Seva ! Hari Om!

I was drawn to Mahadevi for my YTT because I only wanted to teach Yoga if I had an understanding of what it was truly, traditionally l meant to be. I couldn’t have asked for better teachers than Arpita and Arjuna. They’ve created an incredibly beautiful and nurturing space to support students in experiencing the magic of yoga and developing the tools necessary to share it with the world. They both navigate ancient, complex subjects with finesse and authenticity, without losing sight of their place in modern times. The opportunity to experience an extended teacher training and the benefits of living sattvicly (including incrediblly delicious meals) for five weeks was transformative for me. I only wished that it wouldn’t end. Thankfully, the beautiful community I’m now a part of stays with me. If your intuition is guiding you to Mahadevi, I recommend following it :) I’m so glad I followed mine there!

I encourage everyone who wants to dive into the depths of Bhakti yoga and get a proper, profound and transformative yoga teacher training to consider kaivalya yoga school at Mahadevi Ashram as the place to go. Arjuna and Arpita's devotion and dedication to the práctice as well as their professionalism and teaching skills are outstanding. They have created a safe, beautiful and super sattvic and fun space that will not leave anyone indifferent. Expect pure magic. Everything from asanas to philosophy, from pranayama to meditation, from communal time to cacao kirtan is simply sublime. A great space for the evolution of your consciousness.

I had a great time at my YTT in Jan 2018. There was a strong focus on living the life of a yogi and gaining a solid understanding of the theory. I loved ashram life and Friday kirtan and cacao. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a training that will enable you to dive deep spiritually.
