About
My name is PAPPU YADAV. I was born in the holy abode of LORD SHIVA, on the banks of the river GANGA/GANGES. I have always had a deep attachment to spirituality and have been fortunate to come into contact with many spiritual teachers throughout my life. Finally, SRI RAM JI MALVIYA, the holy Professor of Yoga Tantra and former Vice Chancellor of Sampurnananada Sanskrit University, Varanasi, became my GURU. He gave me the name SIDDHARTHA PAPPU and has taught me Yoga Tantra Practices, Hatha Yoga Therapy, and Yogi Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Famous for Hatha Yoga and Pranayama, Siddharth Yoga classes are headed by Yogi Siddharth. He is a former student of Sri Ram Ji Malviya, the holy professor of Yoga Tantra and has a graduate degree in Yoga Tantra along with the knowledge of Yogi Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Visit these classes for an enriching experience at Mansarovar Ghat.

    Amazing yoga class, totally recommend.
    We took yoga twice with this wonderful man, and one time was a private session. We loved it, it was such good energy and humor. Definitely recommend taking at least two classes here. We felt like the teacher really listened to us and what we wanted and needed, pushing our boundaries the right amount. Had the most blissful shavasana at the end with the teacher singing, and finished off with a nice conversation. If we are ever back in Varanasi we will absolutely come back! Thank you :)

    Wonderful authentic experience
    The Siddharth Yoga Centre is a small, family-run yoga centre right on the banks of the holy Ganges, which you can look out over while practising. Siddharth is a wonderful yoga teacher with a wealth of experience and is incredibly good at catering to the level of his students and encouraging each one individually. Manoj also gives great yoga classes with knowledge and patience and it is a wonderful experience when he sings kirtans softly in his wonderful voice during savasana. The pranayama classes are also wonderful and highly recommended. When I went there for the first time, I had very bad chronic back pain. Although I had practiced yoga for many years before, Siddharth was the only teacher who could show me exercises with a lot of patience and deep knowledge that could completely and permanently relieve me of the pain. The two teachers are very welcoming and give the students an amazing insight into Indian culture and the secrets and myths of Varanasi. One highlight, for example, is accompanying them to arti in the Shiva temple. A priceless, unforgettable experience It is no wonder that many students come back again and again and stay in Varanasi for several weeks just for yoga at the Siddharth Yoga Centre. But also a single visit during a short stay is definitely worthwhile! I myself am a yoga teacher, have learnt an incredible amount at Siddharth and return there regularly. I am very happy and grateful to have found this place; it has significantly influenced my entire yoga practice und Siddharth and Manoj have become very dear friends to me. Thank you so much!

    Wonderful teacher and practice
    Am so so pleased to have found Siddarth and his studio. We had a fantastic 90 months ute group class yesterday. A very satisfying and beautifully sequenced session of sun salutations, mantra, standing balances, supine poses, some deep stretches and challenges interspersed with savasana and child pose just when we needed it. My friend is a beginner and really loved it too. The best class we have done so far in India. Siddarth is clear and attentive and offers some assists which were always helpful. The studio is on Mansarowar Ghat with a view right over the Ganga - fantastic! My only regret is not having enough time for more yoga with Siddarth. Definitely go - beginner or seasoned yogi - you will have a great practice here. Real yoga.

Practiced with 5 friends on March 18 at 7 in the morning. Enchanting view of the Ganges, narrow room, we were attached to each other. No one who had done yoga before came away satisfied. We pay 4800 rupees for 6 people and the character who gave us the lesson tells us that 200 rupees are missing. To avoid discussions we pay, at the exit we are told that there are still 1000 rupees missing and we are invited to recount the money with the shortfall. We pay this money too and I promise I will give merciless reviews for this mockery. I also warn people who are entering of what happened. After an hour we are called to go and get 1000 rupees that had been asked of us by mistake... It's a sin to think badly, but often it gets right..

Excellent experience for first timer. I have only ever done one other yoga class in my life and so can't speak from much experience, but I do know I left feeling completely at peace with the serenity I was seeking in Varanasi.

Siddarth is very friendly and welcoming. His center is small but clean and peaceful. An open window looks out at the boats crisscrossing the Ganges and there were birds chirping in a tree right outside.

Some of the poses were honestly pretty challenging and I'm not sure anyone with at least some moderate element of physical fitness would be able to do them, but I imagine he would tailor the course accordingly.

I arranged the class by messaging Siddharth via the WhatsApp number available on GoogleMaps. Very easy to do and I would highly recommend to round out your trip to Varanasi.

Very good and serious experience of yoga with Siddharth. He knew how to adapt to my level as well as my progression. Very good balance between requirement and smooth advancement. I will return to Naggar with pleasure to take courses with Siddharth. Thank you 🙏

I booked a private class few days before my trip since I wanted to learn yoga from zero and wanted all the instructor’s attention on my performance. Siddharth was nice enough to pick me up from my hotel but when we arrived to the center there was another student waiting for us. Then the instructor started the class just where he left it the day before with the other student (he was just saying posture names, addressing most of the time to the other guy....remember this pose? And this one?) so I was totally lost. When we were laying on the floor he used to correct our postures by using his feet which were no very clean. During the class he tried to hit with a stick some monkeys that were walking in the balcony which of course was a big distraction. I was very disappointed with this class since I decided to go here after reading great reviews in TripAdvisor. After the class I sent him an email saying that I won’t attend to the class next day and to my surprise he showed up to my hotel. I asked to receptionist to tell him to go away. I will not recommend this place.

I have no idea how this guy has this rating, he was completely absent mentally while 'teaching'. #1, HE READ THE NEWSAPER DURING SAVASANA!!!!! During the class he tidied up a little, stared out the window and went out onto his balcony, went to the toilet a couple of times, gave very little instruction in postures, was very out of breath while teaching sun salutations. To his credit, he did make alignment corrections in the more difficult postures, but the class was heartless and mechanical. For 400baht I expect a teacher to be engaged with their work. Terrible.

My partner and I attended Siddharth's pranayama classes daily for three weeks in December 2009. I am running a yoga school in Sydney, and when practicing and teaching, I am still drawing on what I have learnt from him then. We spent a fantastic time with him, he is very generous, authentic, and sincere. He is a teacher who is practicing every day, which many yoga teachers unfortunately don't do. This is very important to me. You have to live yoga to be able to pass it on. Siddharth is one of those practitioners. Additionally to his physical practice, he performs rituals at the temple daily, including a one-hour meditation. He has dedicated his life to yoga. This you feel in his classes. Go and see him when you are in Varanasi, don't miss it!

My wife and I went for a session with Siddharth. While she is more advanced in yoga than I am, we had both been out of practice for at least a few months. You can tell from first meeting him that he knows his stuff if you are advanced, but for newbies?

Well, I am happy to report that the session he gave us was gentle enough for us to handle , but concentrated enough to be a really enjoyable and rewarding experience. I highly recommend!

I had great couple of classes there. I enjoyed a lot doing the sun salutations with Ganges view:) Manosh is a very attentive teacher, he gave me some very good tips, corrected technique, helped me to push myself a bit harder during the practice and motivated to follow up.
Thank you
