Having just completed the 200-hour Hatha Yoga TTC with Vijay, I am really satisfied with the course. Vijay’s classes are an institution in McLeodganj and it has been wonderful to practice with and correct the strong practitioners who travel across the globe to attend Vijay’s classes. His methodical approach to explaining, teaching and adjusting asanas has provided me with a solid foundation with which to commence my journey as a yoga teacher. Morning pranayama with Gopi was highlight and philosophy with Dr N. Ganesh Rao was excellent!! He is a wealth of knowledge and I look forward to tracking him down and studying with him further. A big thank you to Vijay, Shiva, Gopi and Dr Ganesh for all your time and energy. - .Sarah-Jane Perman, Australia ((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)
I really enjoyed the Yoga classes … feeling thankful for the knowledge shared by the teachers. - Tessa Overmars – Netherlands (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)
