During my very short time in Varanasi I had two yoga classes and one reiki session with Sunil Ji and his lady teacher Aditi. This yoga place is a hidden Gem inside the maze of Varanasi. Located on the top floor of a central back alley building the place is homely decorated with lots of blankets and yogic knowledge is presented all over the walls. The class itself had a gentle calming rhythm with good stretching after long bus rides and lots of walking. Sunil Ji likes to explain a lot about the benefits of the postures, about mudras and about pranayama breathing techniques. I ended up staying for more than 3 hours on my second day trying to absorb as much of their knowledge as possible before leaving Varanasi. The reiki session felt relaxing and I left the city feeling lighter and more energetic. If you are interested in yoga and/or reiki, make sure to visit this place during your stay in Varanasi! You will be able to learn a lot and find a cozy tranquility away from the crowds of the city. I recommend calling to better coordinate the schedule for yourself and Sunil Ji, but you can also walk in for spontaneous sessions.

We called for a very spontaneous cooking class at the yoga training center. They improvised a class and showed us how to make Chapati and cooked vegetables. Palak -the niece of the master and owner of the yoga training center - did a great job. She showed us the basics of indian cooking. At least we had a good evening.
But just to let you know, it was very improvised and we cooked in their private kitchen and rooms so it wasn't a proper cooking class. And if you can deal with excentric characters this might be your place...
Thank you, Palak and all the best for your future and your own Yoga School!

If you you want to spend an hour or two focussing on your well-being, this is the place to be. Sunil ji will take you through a wonderful journey of yoga and expansion of consciousness. He will train your mind & body to self-heal and raise your awareness about your own self.

I completed the 200 TTC training at Sunil’s Yoga Training Centre recently in February 2020. I stayed at the centre which provided an immersive experience that was full of learning in a supportive and welcoming environment. The teachers were great at attending to my abilities, interests, and learning goals. I appreciated the flow and organization of the daily class structure which also had some flexibility.

The teachers (Sunil, Chanda, and Sharad) were excellent and inspiring in their own right. They each brought their own style, approach, knowledge, and experiences to their teaching which enriched the learning experience. Staying at the centre was also a great way to build stronger connections with the teachers as well as the added benefit of enjoying walks along the Ganga during time off which was very close by and soaking in the Old City of Varanasi.

Overall, a very memorable and absolutely positive experience that has deepened my practice and inspired further learning in yoga.

I was doing a 300 hrs Teacher Training from 1 January to 5 February 2020 and I loved the high quality of teaching. Sunil teaches Yoga/Pranayama and Reiki very well and I learned to laugh a lot :). I could deepen my Asanas knowledge in Sharads Ashtanga class and it was really inspiring for me to learn Yoga Philosophy from him. Chandra explains the Asanas technically very good and she cooks so well. I can highly recommend this place if you want to deepen your Yoga Practice:)

Myself and my husband really enjoyed a one-off private yoga class here. My husband had never done any yoga before but our yoga teacher went through each of the steps very clearly and made it a really relaxing and also fun experience for both of us.

come back here three times in two years for Yoga Teachers Trainings with International Yiga alliance. 200h finished last year, this year completeness 300h.
And I have never regretted it. Varanasi Yoga Training Center - these are professional teachers who treat their students with great attention and care. To each individual approach. And be sure that they will give you exactly what you need for your practice.
For five years I have been teaching people yoga, and I know what it is, I know how this system works, I saw many different teachers. But with great trepidation and love I relate to this school. Just believe my experience.
Sunil is the founder of the center, and a Guru Je with extensive experience, he will always direct, always try to make your practice as useful as possible for you, because he perfectly understands and knows how yoga works and cleverly accepts this in practice. Various programs for various life situations. Deep knowledge of pranayama, meditation. And of course Reiki. Accepting knowledge from Suril is a great honor for many. And walking and exploring the city with him are an unforgettable experience for many years :)
Sharat is a true professional and master of his craft. Ashtanga lessons and unique ajasment, which helps even sophisticated ashtangists to build their practice. His philosophy lessons, knowledge of sacred texts and and life position. All of these can serve as an excellent example of what a Yoga teacher should be. One of the best teachers in Varanasi.
Chandra is a wonderful yogini who will always take care that you are comfortable. Her food will not leave you indifferent, just as her classes have not repeated female energy. Chandra is also a good Reiki master.
In the Varanasi Yoga Training Center you will always feel at home, it is a friendly family atmosphere, warmth and care of people with open hearts, and most importantly unique knowledge of yoga that is difficult to find elsewhere. I want to return to them again and again. And I highly recommend you try this experience.
Mahadev 🙏🏻

Hello, I have done my 200hours Yoga Teacher Training with Sunil. Practicing yoga here shows me a new perception of what is real,what is necessary, and how to become established in a way of life which embraces both inner and outer realities. He let me find my own way to be connected with my true self. We did practice Reiki too as he is an amazing Reiki master,his energy is so positive and powerful that I still can feel it with me. As I was spending most of my day there feeling like home I was eating with them the amazing vegetarian Indian food cooked from Chandra, the best chef! Chandra is another yoga teacher there which helps you so much in feeling the opening of your body,the connection thru the breathing with your body .
It has been an amazing experience and I am definitely looking forward to go back spending more time there :)
Ps. Can't forget the laud warm laught of Sunil!!!! Impossible to don't laught with him and immediately feel better :)!
