Una maravillosa experiencia, interna y externa. El mejor Yoga Training Program!
Jan 2021
The most rewarding experience that I ever believe. Taking this journey through the Yoga by the teaching of Samyak Yoga was revealing, deep and full of wisdom. I enjoyed every session and my heart was resounding in each one. I recommend this training with all my heart and soul. Don’t miss the next opportunity to do so.
Muchas gracias Yogacharya Rakesh & Yogacharya Arvind ¡You rock!

Life changing experience
Feb 2020
Among all the endless options of courses in India I'm so happy I chose to do my hatha yoga teacher training with Samyak yoga.

If you are open to it, it can be a life changing experience. Yogacharya Arvind and Yogacharya Rakesh are both amazing teachers and the way they have structured the course is perfect in my opinon. We started teaching a few asanas in small groups early on and then they built on so that we in the end were ready to teach the whole group.

If you choose Samyak you will get a deep understanding of asanas – how the proper alignments should be, different variations of them, preparations, how to use props and how to use hands on adjustments. You'll also learn pranayama techniques and with philosophy lessons you dive deep in the other aspects of yoga and learn what it is off the mat.

The ashram had exactly what I was looking for. The accommodation is simple, the food is truly amazing and the location among the green fields by the river is beautiful and peaceful (I miss that river so much!). I will be forever grateful for my experience, so thank you Samyak family for sharing your knowledge with so much joy!

Amazing experience.
Nov 2019
This ashram is located in an stunning place close to Mysore. In the middle of nature you wake up feeling so connected to the environment.
I love the room I stayed. Very clean with ample space. The course was amazing. The content is well structured and the teachers are absolutely fantastic. The manager of the place is such a kind woman.
The food is amazing as well. Miss it a lot.
I really recommend this place!!!

I can't imagine a better place to learn Yoga
Jan 2020
To be honest, I decided to do this training without knowing if I really want to be a yoga teacher and my yoga practice started years ago but was not regular.
My overall feeling is that this month at Samyak was amazing. We were all so different. Some of us were doing yoga for 15 years and other only 1. It could be quite intimidating first but it actually worked so well! At the end we all deepen our practice a lot and we all learned how to create and lead a vinyasa sequence.

Whatever you want to be a teacher, teaching is the best way to learn. Samyak has given me all the tools I needed to welcome yoga as one of the most important and beautiful part of my life.
Thank you so much.

Also food was delicious (seriously, I’m still dreaming about it), I had a private room but I felt the shared rooms are also very good. The schedule was perfect to chalenge ourselves and still get enough rest to keep it doing with energy, motivation and happiness. I also really liked not being in the city. The place were we stayed is beautiful and full of good energy.

Rakesh and Arvind are the best yoga teachers I had so far. I would like to have more and more session with them now I’m back 😅

The only thing I would maybe improve is to have a bit smaller group but I’m actually amazed how the 2 teachers managed to lead 25 people during one month. Thanks also to Shwetha who took care so well of everyone 🙏✨
Thank you so much all Samyak team

A life-changing experience
Dec 2019
An amazing month at Samyak. Really great teaching from Arvind and Rakesh; and we were so well cared for by Shweta and all the staff. It was an intense month – physically, emotionally and mentally, but Samyak fostered such an atmosphere of love and care it was beautiful. The ashram is in an amazing location, surrounded by sugar cane fields, coconut palms and fields of marigolds and roses. Sitting down by the river to meditate was a beautiful experience. And I personally loved the wildlife – so many amazing birds to see!

Samyak Yoga is a very school. I did Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher Course and was very satisfied with the quality of teaching, the schedule, teachers and the overall level of the school. It as not my first teacher training and still I learned soo much - about yoga philosophy, adjustments, anatomy and much more. I appreciate the personal involvement and passion of teh wonderful teachers. The whole organization was also incredible. I recommend samyak yoga to everybody!

SAMYAK - best Yoga teachers training
Dec 2019
Samyak is the place where one goes to become a Yoga teacher and returns not only that but also a better human being!
Aravind and Rakesh have a huge dedication to teaching, they share their deep knowledge and passion about Yoga and how to become a Yogini/Yogi. Extremely humble, caring and patient they are outstanding teachers, that inspire and give wise counsel when needed!
Prepare yourself for an amazing experience, and to become part of the Samyak family!

A transformative yoga experience
Dec 2019 • Solo
Signing up for Samyak Yoga's Ashtanga yoga teacher-training is one of the best decisions I've made.

I signed up for the teacher-training in Sept 2019 and truth be told, I knew very little about the Primary Series let alone Sanskrit counts and names. Yet being that "fresh energy" I learned as much as I can while I was there and asked questions from teachers Rakesh and Arvind, who are both talented, knowledgeable, helpful and very reliable. Rakesh would lead the morning practice and the asana clinic, while Arvind would lead the philosophy class and the meditation/pranayama in the afternoon. Their energy is just amazing. You will definitely learn a lot from them. Rakesh explains in detail the right alignment in all postures, while Arvind is entertaining and he knows how to engage students in understanding the yoga philosophy that may be hard to comprehend at first. The course is very intensive, and it challenges you in many ways.

When it comes to accommodation, the staff makes sure it's clean (just beware - the mattresses are a bit hard, but it's tolerable for me). Chef Jitu and his kitchen team makes wonderful Indian vegetarian meals everyday. As a solo female traveling to India for the first time, the staff has also made me feel safe ensuring Samyak Yoga's drivers are trustworthy as they picked me up from Bangalore Airport.

If you're looking for a place to reconnect with yourself, gain new knowledge, know more about Ashtanga and its lineage, and deeply understand the philosophy behind 'why practice yoga', this is the place to be. Such a transformative experience and I couldn't recommend Samyak Yoga highly enough.
