The TTC conducted by Universal Yoga Centre under Vijay has laid a good foundation in me for fulfilling my intentions of starting a Yoga Studio. The personal attention given to me and other students was amazing and I felt connected to all the teachers. I liked watching my body transforming gradually in the asana practice. The teachers for this course have been truly mind-opening and have exceeded my expectations from the Course. Vijay is by far the most advanced performer of asanas I have ever seen. Dr. Ganesh is a brilliant thinker, fascinating in so many subjects. I feel really privileged to share this time with him. - Crystal Davis Robbins - USA / Argentina (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)
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)
Being able to practice twice a day with adjustments has been great for my personal practice and I have learnt a lot in anatomy and philosophy…. - Ceri Stockwell – UK (300 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)
