“Best Massage & future Reader”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

I m yoga teacher back in home and came here in Varanasi with my friends. I was finding good yoga studio my friend suggested to come here i started here yoga lesson and after i learned here Massage many variation he knows Ayurveda, traditional and tantra, he explained the best way. I am totally surprise when he said about my past and present and now i believe his predication about my future too. He said very simply for astrology cost that i can pay donation according my desire so i have given just 1000 Rs. to him because Varanasi is last destination place and i have very short amount of money but surely i will back and at that time i will help in his school project. Teacher is nice and Solo Female traveler can be comfortable with him . He is generous person. He is running free school for street children and slums too... Great work.
Finally my best part of INDIA TRIP IS HERE ...

It was great to meet yoga teacher different country and 2 times more older than me, I am happy that you like my style of teaching and appreciated my astrology prediction. About Astrology i always take as donation and it can be 1 rupees to more upon desire of student because these money i use for the children education and caring program in Varanasi. We do with every single student our best behave so that they could feel in our place comfortable and relax, thanks for writing our school project. Keep in touch and most welcome in holy city Varanasi.

“Reiki 1st degree & Yoga with Somit teacher”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

I would like to recommend yoga education training society with Somit teacher for anyone interested in yoga and reiki. I m yoga teacher and took 5 lessons of yoga and learning Reiki 1st degree . He is very friendky and honest teacher with social lovers. My experience with Somit helped my practice and my teaching imnensly; donot hesitate to choise his instruction in the lovely setting of holy city Varanasi. GROUND FLOOR FREE SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN U CAN GIVE UR TIME FOR TEACHING AND PLAYING. *** BE CAREFUL FROM HIS ENIMIES/ RIVALS THEY CAN MISGUIDE YOU***

“The warm heartbeat of Varanasi's streets...”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

I accidently bumped into this place while getting lost in the small streets around the ghats,and I'm so happy I did...I came back the next day just to help out and brought some balloons to do some exercises with the kids.Small gestures,lots of fun...It was a pleasure meeting Somit,who deserves all respect for founding this place.Some people just have the heart on the right place,and I hope he can find the necessary funds to keep on going... And besides that,I got the best massage of my life here,high quality for a good price! Even if it's just for a day or to say hello,just pass by the society,and it will make your Varanasi visit simply complete...I'll be back!

Your experience is very different from the others ... you have already checked others as you said me that your last hotel said some yoga studio and took more money and you think that your hotel manager took commission ... but more important thing is that you did not like them and you found us via lonely planet guide and came yourself.. and feeling now cool because almost you took all the lesson of our society and it seems you are very happy with all the subjects and these reason you came up to write here, Thanks and Most Welcome Next Time.
