5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

It is overall decent Yoga studio with world's most honest teacher Somit i did yoga continue 12 days it was hatha astanga meditation and prwnayama.....because in my 5th days yoga lesson i forgot to take my purse and inside was 5750 Rs.+ 250 Euro... I realized after 7 hours ..i was in restaurant...i ran away to find out Somit was not in the studio... after reaching staff said they did not get anything my heart was crying becausr it was my last money and Somit‘s mobile was not working..after 30 minutes he came and given my purse and all money was inside ok i could not control my emotions and hug him and kissed.I was giving him for his honesty 1000 Rs but he deniedand said to me if u r happy then donate here 15 notebooks in the children program it was heart touching reply... i did volunteer work here for 11 days it is great super and kind project i m lucky person who has joined Somit and his member.

“Refresh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

i did yoga before many times since last 3 years not continue... When I was doing I thought myself focus is very important and after finish feeling new life energy and refreshing. Teacher is great easy to focus his style and technique easy english every body can understand easy I can trust him easily by close eyes safe place for any solo female traveller Varanasi is full of tricky person specially around somit place they can give u wrong information so contact him before by mobile or phone. See u next time in varanasi

The class was held inside the hotel. Although the teachers accent was hard to understand, he obviously knew what he was talking about
