I was blissfully unaware of the speed at which the three weeks at Shrimath Yoga passed by for the teacher training course. Located in tranquil and idyllic surroundings, the living quarters are neat, the food healthy and wholesome, the staff kind and considerate and the Yoga course a wonderful life-changing experience. Especially enjoyed the time with the small kids in the village school and the gardening work! After the course, I have taken to my yoga practice with renewed vigor, and look forward to spreading the joy and happiness I have experienced through yoga to people in Japan after I return. Full marks to Krishna, Hema, Vanitha, Smruti and the other staff of Shrimath Yoga. I look forward to visiting you again some day!

I have always wanted to do a yoga teacher training and deepen my yoga practice. I decided on Shrimath due to a friend's recommendation. I knew I wanted to do my training in India. I had been at a crossroads in my career so in September 2016 I came to Shrimath not knowing how impactful the 21 day program would be. It did change my life and helped me move into a new direction. I am thankful for everyone at Shrimath especially Krishna, who shared his wisdom and knowledge with us. I am happy and luck to be going back in January to assist with the next yoga teacher training. I'm looking forward to seeing the Shrimath family again and of course the amazing food.

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.

How do I even begin to summarize my time here.... I heard about Shrimath through a friend of mine while backpacking SE Asia. After hearing such wonderful things and their lovely experience I decided to pursue Shrimath as my school. I must mention I left Rishikesh (yoga capital of the world) and headed to rural Bangalore to do my course. I am forever grateful having made this decision. Though, I cannot speak on the experiences of the schools in Rishikesh as I've never done a course there (I'm sure they are amazing too!). However, I was seeking an intimate smaller scale setting to receive this knowledge and Shrimath offers exactly that. They cap their limit at 10 students despite constantly being in demand (at least what it was while I was there) and this keeps the school tailored to you in such a unique manner. Yoga is more than just postures and this is a fundamental of Shrimath. They share the sacred knowledge of yoga and how to implement this is your life regardless of where you come from. Life changing knowledge and teachings to say the least. The knowledge that is passed on is direct from source.

I had inquired about a visit to Tiruvannamalai (Shiva’s mountain/Arunachaleswara) as I heard from another fellow student about the potential trip/visit to this amazing holy/sacred site. A very important and powerful pilgrimage site. Along this mountain are saints, yogis and siddhas. It’s truly a magical place that no words can do justice. Sri Ramana Maharshi discovered the sacredness of this site at the age of 16 and shortly after never left this site. (google his name if unaware of the story, it’s magical) All in all, I emailed a month and a half prior to my arrival and Krishna Ji was able to not only facilitate a visit, but connected to me to one of the most powerful experiences I have ever been graced to experiences.

Krishna Ji is such an amazing instructor/teacher. Very soft and direct, his way of was teaching was beyond powerful and effective. Every word spoken rang true or resonated. If any questioned was asked it was almost like Krishna Ji had lived it and was speaking from that perspective. There were a few moments I recall specifically being baffled at the answer received.

Hema's teaching method was good. She really learns your strengths and limitations and helps you to progress and strengthen your weaknesses. Individually tailored to your specific needs. I had limitations in my ankle from competitive football injuries and over the course of 3 weeks and with certain modifications I left with huge progressions, reduction in pain and huge increase in flexibility and mobility.

Smrithi's food, oh my. I had been backpacking in India for 3 weeks prior to this course and 7 months across SE Asia. I absolutely fell in love with the food. Some of my favorite meals over the course of my travels. So nutritious, tasty and cooked with love. Next course I do, I plan on spending minimum a week extra to learn to cook a few of these dishes at the very least!

As for the location, I loved the setting. Amazing gardens. The energy there was something special, grounding, peaceful and this hum to it. The gardens are surrounded by lush greenery, wild monkeys, local cattle out for their rounds and very sweet local villagers. I loved how involved Shrimath was with the community. During the course we’d visit the local school to teach the kids/play. The kids are so sweet and look forward to spending time with you. It’s evident how much of an impact Shrimath has had on the village. Everyone in the village knows of Shrimath and what the family is creating. There is a lot of love to be shared and powerful lessons to learn should one be open to an experience like Shrimath.
This felt way more than a yoga school/teacher training. I definitely call everyone at Shrimath family and honored to have been guided to an experience like this.

All in all, I could write 5 more pages but it still would on scratch the surface on this amazing school. If inclined email Krishna Ji and see where it goes. I HIGHLY recommend :)

Thank you for everything, Blessings and blessings.
Thank you for all that you have cultivated and done for us.

I can only recommend this place as it is in a beautiful environment, clean and neat, with the best Indian food I had so far and not only because of the taste but because it's cooked with love what I've never expirienced to that extend so far, and also because of the great knowledge that is shared with you as it is not only about yoga but inner transformation and because it is really on the countryside far away from any distractions you can very well concentrate on all the good inputs you get there. So five stars from my side whitout hesitation :)
