Reviews of Arhanta Yoga Teacher Training Course in Nederland
“The Arhanta Yoga Teacher Training Course was a very positive and horizon broadening experience. At the start of the course I was a bit critical but this attitude has changed throughout the course and turned into curiosity and admiration. Curiosity to the yogic philosophy and the depth of life. I admire my teachers, and the perseverance of my fellow students and myself. The motivation to start this course should come from within. Of course the teachers have also been a huge help to stay motivated. Yogi Ram speaks very passionate about the Vedic philosophy. Using small stories he makes the abstract philosophy easy to understand. He also has so much knowledge that it is always fascinating to listen to him. Yogi Omkar has a lot of patience to teach you something. His warm personality and humor make it possible to keep smiling even in the most complicated asanas. He motivates you in a gentle way to push your physical limits. Both teachers are very skillful, professional and experienced. The course is very well structured and because every minute is being used, you hardly have time for distraction and you keep focused. The course is physically and mentally intensive, which I experienced as a challenge. I have learned so much and I have also gained a lot of teaching experience.” Maya, the Netherlands
“The Arhanta Yoga Teacher Training Course is very well structured and allows you to learn a lot in a short time, while staying accessible and clear. The good balance between theory and practice allows your body to discover and experience what we learn. Because of this you learn faster and you can apply this in practice. Yogi Ram has a lot of knowledge which he shares with his students so we can get the maximum results in developing ourselves into the best possible yoga teachers. The TTC was a very good experience, the daily practice of yoga gives me a lot of positive energy. I have met many nice people and I have gained a lot of interesting knowledge. Because of that this month has gone by really fast. Thank you very much for this experience!” Anna, the Netherlands

“Thank you Yogi Ram and Omkar for giving me the possibility to learn about Yoga. When I started this yoga teacher training course, I only had 5 month of experience in practicing asanas. After the Yoga course, I have improved my own yoga skills so much that now I feel confident to teach Yoga classes to beginners.” Mila, the Netherlands
