Student Feedback

  • Your ‘adjustments’ in Asana Class is excellent. Dr. Ganesh Rao’s Philosophy class is awesome. Kate was amazing in back-bending. Keep on doing what you are doing … I never would have come back to Arambol if I hadn’t found your school!!! - Cody Schneider - USA (300 Hours TTC)
  • First of all, thank you for putting it all together. Everyone has worked very hard and diligently. Much love VJ! I enjoyed the different teachers for different topics – Anatomy, Philosophy, Methodology, Back-bending and Pranayama. Much love and aloha! - Anna Koley – USA (300 Hours TTC)
  • I learned a lot from Vijay’s TTC. I learned the Asanas well and the Pranayama. The lecturing classes on Anatomy and Philosophy were fantastic. I feel confident now that I can teach Yoga to at least someone who is a beginner… Over all I am glad I took the Course and I will take Vijay’s classes in the future.. Thank you Vijay!!! - Nathaniel Richter – USA (200 Hours TTC)
  • I cannot overemphasize how much every aspect of this course: teachers, helpers, organization, circumstances, surroundings and facilities contributed to my immersion in the practice of Yoga in a most revealing, down to earth, bone-flesh-and-spirit way. I am deeply thankful from my whole being for this experience. May all be happy! - Yevgeniy (Zhenya) Ampleyev – USA (300 Hours TTC)
  • It was an interesting Course – good methodology, where you learn clearly how to handle students during their asanas; great Indian Philosophic teaching with Dr. Ganesh and equally good teaching in Anatomy from Lisa. I enjoyed the atmosphere; quite relaxed but still serious and uplifting. Thank you all!! - Lara Sardyga – France (200 Hours TTC)
