Student reviews

yoga course 2016 harriette“The Yoga Teacher Training Course is a very intensive course. No minute is wasted. Every minute of the day is very useful. The course gives a very good basis on yoga and how to become a yoga teacher. It is also a nice program if you already are a teacher. It gives you the opportunity to live in a yogic way for a couple of weeks. It deepened my own practice. I am now already looking forward to the advanced teacher training.” Hariette, The Netherlands

yoga training 2016 chantelle“My expectations of the course were completely exceeded. Ram and the rest of the Arhanta team are exceptional teachers and very professional. The structure of the course is so well put together and the well-designed system truly builds up and prepares you to become a well-trained and educated yoga teacher. Decent accommodation and delicious, clean and healthy food, a fantastic welcoming training team and a beautiful peaceful location. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone worldwide.” Chantelle, Australia
yoga teacher training 2016 deepak“Before coming to the Arhanta yoga teacher training course I was really not sure if the course would be good for me or not. But with time the group became like a family and the environment within the group was funny, respectful, friendly and supporting. I learned a lot in my classes. Especially the yoga philosophy class was the best part of my day. The art of teaching asanas made it easy for us to learn also the difficult asanas. I have learned a lot in those 4 weeks, perhaps more then I learned before in 4 years.” Deepak, Germany
yoga teacher training 2016 Netherlands markie“I was not quite sure what the course would be like. However, I found it to be full of really helpful information and practical skills although I found it challenging at times, especially the asana class. I felt that I was really encouraged and supported by the staff. I have managed to make a lot of changes in a relatively short period of time, I have found every aspect of the training well thought out and delivered in a professional manner.” Markie, England
