We're from Bengaluru and had to drive 40 kms from the city to reach this endearing place in the lap of mother nature called Shrimath Yoga run by the lovely couple - Krishna Prakash and Smrithi Krishna with a lot of hospitality.

This is not a resort for a weekend getaway or a break from your daily routine. Yes, it certainly is a break from stress as the place embraces you with the touch of soothing breeze and tranquility. Sounds of the peacock calling in the distance can be heard amidst the sounds of chirping birds and the cow's moo! Watch the goats with their kids and the cows with their calf as you soil your hands with the aroma of fresh mud while engaging in their 3 acres campus as part of 'Karma Yoga' practice. Many trees with their botanical names and medicinal plants within the vicinity of Shrimath Yoga are explained to you by Krishna Prakash in a profound manner.

The day begins at around 6 am with chants of Om and insights on yoga and sanskrit language used in many Indian chants and mantras. A tastefully prepared vegetarian breakfast is served in a homely atmosphere at around 7 am and the yoga classes resume at around 11 am after a cup of tea. A healthy vegetarian lunch is served at around 12.30 pm and you get some time to relax before continuing with your yoga sessions. This time it is the practice of Yoga Nidra after the afternoon siesta and that's to ensure you don't sleep off during Yoga Nidra. Both Krishna and Smrithi share a lot of insights and meaningful tips with you about life, yoga and tradition, which could be a transformation for many. People come here from different parts of the world - some who have enrolled for the yoga training course and others to just get a glimpse of 'tiny experiences' as they are called. There have been many who visit this place again and again whenever they hear the inner calling.

Do not expect an A/C accommodation, room service, fancy shower or a dining hall with tables and buffet lunch. This is not a hotel or a resort; it is a yogashala (yoga ashram) and while you set out to get some perspective on yoga and its significance on your mind, body and soul, be prepared to experience the simplicity of life. Pure vegetarian healthy meals that's soothing on your tummy is served hot and you eat sitting on the floor; you wash your utensils after using them. You are given breakfast, lunch and dinner during your stay apart from tea and fruits in between. You may get used to washing your clothes yourself and hang them to dry in the outdoors. Read a book, meditate, introspect or just close your eyes and relax as you sink in to your dwelling. The next sunrise may have a whole new perspective to life. Explore yourself at Shrimath Yoga located near Nelamangala in the outskirts of Bengaluru city.

I don't quite agree with how Shrimath Yoga has been categorised under Speciality Boarding. Staying at Shrimath for the 21-day 200-hour yoga program is an experience, and it is an experience for only a select few. Not everyone can pluck themselves from their daily mundane life of job, deadlines,career, bucket-lists, goals, etc. and come to Shrimath to learn about things that matter the most.
At Shrimath Yoga one learns about a yogic life, not just postures or yoga aasanas. I stayed in the humble yet comfortable room for 21 days and followed a rigorous routine on a daily basis without the intervention of technology or unnecessary human interaction. The daily routine has different sessions and classes through the day with ample breaks and free time. The daily schedule aligns with a stress-free and healthy lifestyle. Shrimath property is amidst a quiet village, some few kms from Bangalore. Filled with trees, greenery and farms one can get used to living a quiet, pollution-free life here. One gets to see great views and experience new things on a daily basis. A nature lover's paradise.
A batch of 5 people from different parts of the globe with different cultural and spiritual backgrounds coming to together for the same cause - learning more about oneself and discovering the finer things in life.
We were taught about the history of yoga, the relevance of yoga in the indian culture, the theory backing up different aspects of yoga by Krishna Sir. Krishna Sir's knowledge is a force to reckon with.
Along with these classes we also had several sessions where we interacted with school children from the neighbouring village or helped with gardening and farming.
Vanitha mam and Hema mam took sessions for yoga aasanas, yoga nidra and pranayama. Each session is a step towards inner peace, self-discovery and personal health, be it physical or spiritual. There is a lot to be learnt from the Shrimath team at every instance.
Coming to the meals, Smita mam cooks the most amazing satvic meals. The purest and healthiest meals one can have to sustain a healthy life. The food closes the loop of healthy living, contentment and sustainability. After eating here, one's food habits might change forever.
The entire Shrimath experience is not something that can be written about because every individual has a different goal and every individual takes something different. One thing that can be assured is that every person comes out of this experience with some life changing revelations.

Earning my yoga teacher certification at Shrimath Yoga of Arjunabittahalli, India was a fulfilling experience. I thought it was fate and the power of Google that sent me on an adventure to improve my physique and yoga poses, and maybe calm me a bit too. I quickly learned that there was a greater power sending me to a site that seemed to be designed just for me. The 21 day teacher training piqued my attention with the allure of a forest on its property, an opportunity to connect to nature, daily gardening, visits to the village school, fresh fruit and chai tea breaks, and organic garden-fresh meals. These perks were not separate from the yoga philosophy classes, but rather an application of yogic living. Studying yoga in India was an authentic experience, as the whole country is a model of how to integrate yogic peaceful action and balance into daily living.

On day one I knew I was right where I needed to be when Krishna Prakash, Shrimath's yoga philosophy teacher, gave us a tour of the property, highlighting the medicinal purposes and environmentally-friendly practices of over 100 trees on the beautiful grounds.

Granite benches, harvested right from the village's ground, are placed under trees and within the gardens for resting and meditating in nature. Krishna has a profound and interesting delivery of yogic knowledge that he makes understandable for anyone, regardless of background and religion. We connected personally over our shared sense of responsibility and action to care for the environment.

Our yoga postures (asanas) teacher, Hema, radiated an example of beauty in all of her actions and words. She demonstrated a gentle patience in teaching us not only asanas and breathing, but also in encouraging living habits fit for good health and well-being. Hailing from an agricultural family, she even taught me some new gardening techniques. Hema connected asana sessions to appreciating the environment (especially with Surya Namaskaar), and ended sessions by saying, "bow to mother earth."

My yoga instructor taught me more than postures - gardening in India too! The pictured method simulates rainfall.

Smithri took cooking to a new level. She poured her spirit into every delicious meal. Every single meal was made fresh from scratch with vegetables either directly from own her garden or from a neighbor's yard. She reinforced the yogic duty we all have to care for ourselves, by nourishing us with the bounty of the earth. Forget processed junk food! Smithri proved how refreshed and strong we could feel as her cooking powered us through two daily classes of yoga postures.

Time at the village's school was an application to reflect on what we each have to contribute to the world. Of course I was thrilled to share my knowledge of the environment with the young learners. This cultural exchange showed me that these kids already knew many yogic principles. No need for step-by-step directions on calming a room of 20 kids, they already knew how to sit in a meditative pose, close their eyes and peacefully chant "ohm." We learned from each other.

School children of the village greeted us daily with open arms and loved posing in pictures with us!
I am eternally blessed for my unforgettable experience of studying yoga at Shrimath Yoga. It went above and beyond teaching yoga. Krishna, Smithri, and Hema dedicated their entire being to 21 days of giving all they could to the 6 of us teachers-in-training. In addition to the planned sessions, they even took us on outings to temples and the city to see first-hand how people in India apply yogic principles. I connected with the environment- and the light within myself and others- through the natural world in my yoga teacher training.

Thank you, Krishna, Smithri, and Hema for an experience that will stick with me forever. Namaste.

To write about Shrimath and about 21 days yoga ttc, is something that got me thinking for hours. There are no words that could aptly describe my experience.

When I joined, I just wanted to deepen my asana and meditation practices and get a certificate. I had no idea what was waiting for me.

I reached Shrimath on 7th March. I met Krishna sir and Hema and then Hema showed me the room. A large basic room, neat and clean.

And then I met Smriti.
Smriti is the mother of the place. For her, cooking is an art. She experiments with the food and it turns out delicious. She told us few of her recipes. She explained the benefits of each ingredients. She will make sure that everyone gets food at the proper time and she will make you eat. :D Thank you for all the love and care, thank you for making me eat vegetables and improving my eating habits.

The days start with early morning mantra chanting, Sun gazing, asana classes by ever smiling Hema.
The kind of attention to every student and the unbelievable amount of patience that Hema has is impossible to find anywhere else. Hema, Thank you for being such an incredible teacher. :) Now when I practice asana, I remember your corrections and I make sure my shoulders are relaxed. :D

Krishna sir explained us Yoga Philosophy based on our doubts, based on the batch requirements. I really consider myself beyond blessed to have been in March batch because the doubts, the discussions, the kind of knowledge flowed in every class was what I actually needed. All these were waiting for me. Shrimath was my destiny.
Krishna sir explained us from simple things to complex things with practical examples. He has immense amount of knowledge and a very unique way of teaching and parenting. He explained us how small small everyday actions could make us or break us. Thank you for showing me the right path, Sir. :)

Shrimath is filled with positive energy and love. Everyone is so friendly and helpful- Shobha akka, Ajay, Kumar.
The village people are really nice, it's lovely to see when they try to communicate in their own language. And the school kids are so adorable! You will get attached to them from the very first day.

I loved the yogic kriyas. Krishna sir and Hema taught us how to perform the kriyas properly. I felt energetic and lighter after every kriya. And the stillness you get after mantra chanting can't be described.
Sit in the garden. Spend time with the nature. Try to meditate. So blissful! And they do have few really good books.
I actually benefitted from Yoga Nidra and switch words personally. I wasn't expecting all these from 21 days TTC. The course was beyond my expectations.

"Teachers are like candles, which consume themselves to brighten the lives of others"
I really want to thank Shrimath family for brightening mine and many other students' lives over the years selflessly. :)

Love thanks divine Grace

It was the "right choice" when i realised this, when the course was close to the deadline.It was a great experience for me at Shrimath. I loved the real, divineful teachings, classes of Krishna Prakash, Asana classes by Hema who twisted me all around, top to bottom, the delicious food by Smrithi. I came to know many things there which was a priority in my day to day work. Thank you Shrimath for everything. I have carried a lot from there and executing it rightly. I have to thank God for sending me there to Shrimath, giving me the right choice. I thank you all for the beautiful days, where i enjoyed everything, right from my room to the wonderful greenery outside.I loved to click wonderful scenes at Shrimath.I would suggest Shrimath to anyone who need to do a Yoga program, with no doubt. I will never forget those days which was cherished with full of love and divinity.I am also thankful to my colleagues. Thanks for the factor "FAITH" . You are the sole responsible for this seed to sow in me which is growing with full bliss right in ME, which i am experiencing it. I think THANKS is not the sufficient word to express, there is an adjective beyond this word. I wish all Success and glory to the place and people over there. God Bless......
