Testimonial 200hrs Yoga TTC Stefania#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #testimonial #yogateachertraining
My name is Stefania, and I am originally from Italy but I have been living in Australia for the past six years. I've been practising Yoga for 10 years now. Intensively at some points and then most doing self practise for a few years. Cause I couldn't find a place where I belonged or a teacher that resonated with me. Until I met Vijay and I came to Yoga Gita. This is a place where I feel more comfortable in cause it is Yoga at its source. It doesn't belong to any style, it is applicable to everyone, it is taught extensively and in detail with a lot of passion. I feel I found finally my place and my motivation to keep walking on this path of self discovery, self awareness and eventually self realisation.

Testimonial Matt 200 hrs Yoga Teacher Training#yogagita #testimonial #yogateachertraining
Heei, I'm Matt, I'm from Australia. I have been studying Yoga for about 10 years. I have been really looking forward to learning with Yoga Gita about what Yoga really is. So beyond any kind of fancy styles, or fashions, I want to know Yoga as a path of Self realisation. So I am really happy that I found this Teacher Training course. The setting is beautiful here, the people are lovely and the teachings are truly awesome. They help me really understand what Yoga is and put me in a foundation from where I can authentically teach this wonderful subject.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Harmke#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
I am Harmke, I am from The Netherlands. I got to know Yoga Gita, through the Yoga Festival Terschelling. I was actually looking for a Yoga practice a study that is going in depth. Because some time ago I was doing a Yoga Teacher Training but I couldn't finish it because I moved to another country. But there I noticed that Yoga is much more than just asana's. It is more holistic and there are different steps to take in the whole practice. It is also asanas but also meditation and the things you do. It is very broad, it is like life to me, basically. I was looking for an approach like that, or more like a Teacher Training which is directed to that. On the festival I run in to some people who told me about Vijay. And they told me 'you have to follow a lesson of him'. Somewhere on the field I just met him, I run into him and after three sentences I noticed "Oh you are Vijay. I am going to your lesson." I told him I was searching something like this. And he told me "if you come to the lesson you will find your answer". At that moment I was like, of course everything that I will do will lead me more to the answer which kind of Yoga training I want to do. I went to the lesson, and I actually felt immediately that this was the kind of Yoga, I want to learn more from Vijay. And I think this is the right center to learn more about Self practice and everything. So that is how I came on this road. I went to this block of 5 days and I learned many things. I think it is very amazing of hearing Vijay talking about philosophy, meditation and pranayama. I also learned how to chant, I hadn't had the experience of that before. Doors were opened for me, new experiences. Actually it was really amazing to attend all sessions, the different topics that we talked about. I am just very happy. Now I will go home after tonight, reading through all my papers, and trying to finetuning in Self Practice. In a month coming to the next block and being eager to learn more.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Yorah#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
I am Yorah, from Groningen. I am a Yoga teacher and I also practice Yoga for myself of course. I just did a week of the Yoga Teacher Training with Vijay Gopala. And it was great! It was very special! I learned so much for myself as a person and also as a teacher. But actually to be on this course it is more, I got more in depth with myself than as a teacher. I think that is also again important for being a teacher. But it is more a journey for myself. The way Vijay explains it is so, in a way, confronting also inspiring. Even though it is new information, because I have been doing Yoga for so many years, it is new information. It is another angle of looking at it. For me it doesn't feel new, but it feels like it is the truth. Yoga is for many people, and also for me, finding peace in your Self, finding more rest, finding to stop the thinking and the restlessness in you; to connect the body, breath and mind. But what this exactly means is hard to find when you practise Yoga and follow classes. And Vijay explains it as a science, a way of life, not as a sport you practice or a hobby or something you do. But something you live, something that is not explaining what is Yoga, but is explaining how does it work in life. It is like science and philosophy. Explaining the world, explaining life, explaining everything in a way, in a very good way, easy to understand. Not easy actually, it is very complex and it is a lot. But you can feel he is helping you to get closer to understand everything. And still I am feeling that I am far away of understanding everything but it is okay, because I know in the end I will understand.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Hilde#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
Hello, I am Hilde from Groningen. I am teaching Yoga for a couple of years now. And I did a teacher training in the Netherlands before but I was looking for some deepening. And then I met Vijay at the Yoga Festival Terschelling last year. So when I did his class, I was very impressed with the way he was teaching. And it was what I was looking for actually. Then I did another class of him. And what I really like about his teachings is, he approaches Yoga in a very science kind of way so you can really understand from different angles. He has a lot of knowledge and it is just Yoga. It is the real Yoga what he is teaching, that was what I was looking for. There are all different kind of styles of Yoga, I never really believed in all those different styles. I was looking for the real classical Yoga, the Patanjali teachings, and that was what I found with Vijay Gopala. And he is a very very good teacher and he can explain, well amazingly well.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Tiago#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #yogaretreat
Hello everyone! Here is Tiago talking. I just had three amazing days with Yoga Gita in this beautiful place in caves in the mountains. It was really profound to have Vijay and Nagaraj sharing their knowledge about Yoga in this place. I am really really happy I had this opportunity to coming to India and spend time with them. And if you are really interested in Yoga, not only the physical part but also the whole holistic approach how Yoga can bring us to our “Selves”, I think this is a really good place. Namaste!

Yoga Gita testimonial by Marianne#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #yogaretreat
This training of Vijay Gopala, this Yoga training with Yoga Gita is way to practice to be what you want to be. So, not being a result of all the things you have experienced in life but knowing a way practically to be beyond that or beyond your own imprints, beyond the things you experienced in life and which make you, define you to who you are. And it’s practical in a way that you, what you practice on the mat - Asanas, Pranayama, Meditation; it’s all to bring you more to your real “Self”; the real “Self”is universal, it’s one, it’s love and a way to get there..really just go on your own mat and start being with your “Self”. That’s what Yoga Gita teaches you; how to do that and gives you your own experience. It’s not like anybody else telling you how to be but just be yourself, that’s it!

Yoga Gita testimonial by Heribert#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #yogaretreat
My name is Heribert Suppanz, I am coming from Germany. And in the moment I am in front of this beautiful cave near Tumkur and I am joining a nice group, a Teacher Training Course from Mysore and it’s with Vijay and Nagaraja Rao and both are very pleasant and competent people and their approach to Yoga is I think quite different than any approaches I ever heard about. This is what I think is very interesting to see for me that if I really want to practice Yoga, I have to understand Patanjali and other literature and other important Spiritual paths in this way. So Spirituality for me is one of the most important things and Vijay says it must be a Yoga beyond Yoga styles and that means for me also how to approach Yoga. And I think it can be only in this way with un attachment and without effort and without any things you want to get or you want to achieve, it must come, it must be without effort as I told and you have to make the Yoga with your Soul and you have to reflect your “Self”, you have to come to your “Self” and reach may be the “Self”, it’s the most important and the “Self”means not to make a copy maybe from any other postures or make a copy of a Guru or make a copy of anything else because you are your own “Self”, you are your own Universe and on this way I am very glad that I could be here in this group with Vijay and with Nagaraja Rao. Thanks a lot and I think I am very glad to be here near Tumkur now in these caves for example to feel the Spirit and the Spirituality of this great path of Yoga. Thank you!

Yoga Gita testimonial by Alice#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
Namaste, my name is Alice. I am from London, England and I have just finished a one month course with Vijay, with Yoga Gita and I just wanted to share with you guys just what an amazingly transformative experience it has been for me.
I came across Vijay and I am so grateful to the Universe for giving me this amazing gift because in my heart I was looking for a real depth to my Yoga practice. Vijay Gopala has grown up just living Yoga, his father was a Yogi, he comes from a long lineage of Yogis and you can just feel that he breathes and lives Yoga.
He is so blissful and so patient and just the most amazing teacher and he has helped me in so many ways. I have learnt why I was experiencing pains in certain parts of my body which despite all of my effort were not going away and most importantly of all I have really experienced a wisdom and a heart opening that actually has surprised me. he came from such an authentic and deep place and I knew instantly that I wanted to come and do the Teacher Training Course and if you are too thinking about becoming a teacher; perhaps you are already a teacher and you want to deepen your knowledge of the practice and deepen your understanding of the philosophical foundations of Yoga then I can’t recommend this course highly enough. It absolutely will change you and the most important thing I have taken away is just the inner strength to know what Yoga is and to know that I can change my destiny through practice, through discipline, through applying the yogic principles correctly, there’s only one way and that’s inwards, towards the Self, towards eternity, towards bliss and I have experienced elements of this throughout this month, through the morning meditations, through the extensive asana practice, through the afternoon posture sessions, through the pranayama sessions, through the chanting we have been doing, even in a point when we are relaxing and enjoying ourselves during break times.
The fact that you are even watching this video shows that you are a seeker so continue on the path, don’t have a closed mind and don’t go for the obvious, because hot Yoga or beer Yoga or whatever is trendy at the moment you know, naked Yoga, there’s so many kinds of Yoga going on, you know, so much of that is external or it’s marketing or it’s some kind of gimmick to get people in the studio to make money; turning people around, session after session after sessions, selling coconut water and you know hot pants to make money and that’s not what Yoga is about. So come to India or check Vijay’s schedule, he travels all around the world and particularly extensively in Europe so just check out the website and all the best! Namaste.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Gregory#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
"I was immediately very transfixed by Vijay Gopala's teachings and the communication that he was able to deliver through Yoga. I have never myself come across a Yoga teacher with so much genuine experience as Vijay.
I don’t think Vijay ever intended on becoming a Yoga teacher. He certainly ever intended on opening up a yogaschool and that shows in the way he teaches because he is teaching you like a fellow practitioner and not just a fellow practitioner who is trying to become a Yoga teacher and has become one, he is doing it from someone who has actually lived as a Yogi, was brought up as Yogi and has manifested life as a Yogi. And therefore he is able to translate an awful lot of quite complicated things into a very real life environment. which makes it a lot more easier to digest but also which allows it to resonate an awful lot more because it comes from the perspective of truth rather than that of the manual or teaching course that he has been on.
Yoga beyond styles, it’s the truth, it’s Yoga beyond any marketing or any kind of tailor-made, sandwich-wrapped package that has, you know, been so valuable to us in the west to get this message about inner work, about how powerful our minds are and what control they have over our lives but as with myself I was ready to go that one step further and ready to leave that kind of surface Yoga behind. I am so glad I found Yoga Gita, I welcome you to do the same.
Thank you so much.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Agnieszka#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
My name is Agnieszka. I am Polish, I live in the Netherlands. The Teacher Training I completed for the second time already with Yoga Gita and I really really enjoyed it, the second time especially because first time everything was very new for me. I actually practiced Yoga already back then for a couple of years but I realized I knew very little about Yoga , but I was always interested to learn it from the teachers in India who are very experienced, for who yoga is a part of life. I was interested in the philosophical background and to learn the original Yoga as it has been developed by ancient Sages and who are reading from the books and I was really really happy that I was able to find such School and such teachers. The main Teacher Vijay Gopala and also Nagaraj, they are both senior and Yogis and they are teaching from their heart. They are teaching us how to be evolved human beings, how to be wise in every situation. I learnt that all the body postures and Asanas which we practice on the mat, they actually also have lots of meaning; so we are learning the stability, we are learning stillness of the body, of the mind as well as the breath and this stability helps us to sit in the meditation. So all the body postures were actually developed for that purpose and the stability and stillness you actually also bring to the life. About the school, it’s located in Mysore, in the capital of Yoga so it’s like a Yoga village which has very unique atmosphere. We are gathering all together for food, for travelling. Also this type of teachings is ego less, selfless, purity and wisdom, I think that’s also have influence on what kind of people it attracts. So doing the course for the second time, I have lots of amazing friends. I would like to encourage everyone to at least once in life try teachings of Yoga Gita. Namaste.
Yoga Gita testimonial by Remco#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
Hi, my name is Remco De Groot, I am from the Netherlands and since one year I am intensively studying with Vijay Gopala. Last year in January I did the first Teacher Training in Mysore and in the meantime in Holland I was also in the Teacher Training and now for the third time I am in the Teacher Training again in Mysore and what makes you come back every time is that by studying with Yoga Gita you really learn the Science of Yoga and it really gives a deepening in your practice, it gives a deepening in your Asana practice, Pranayama practice and because you know the science behind Yoga you also have like ways to apply everything in your self practice. And what’s also special is like as you develop in Yoga, you can continue learning especially with Vijay because he can bring it to the next step every time you have developed yourself. So that means you can keep on developing and every time you see more the completeness of the Yoga approach and in that sense it also helps to have a lot of philosophy in the Teacher Training. So philosophy is really like what life is about and how you can apply the Yoga philosophy in your day to day life. And it’s not only like you learn practical things, you learn like the deep philosophy that’s in the scriptures, the Vedanta scriptures, the Upanishads, Bhagwad Gita, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. And what’s unique is that if you can make the translation to your practice, so that really makes a difference for your practice and that really helps in developing the Yoga inside.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Manuela#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
Hello everybody, my name is Manuela, I am from the south of Holland. I am here in a beautiful area nearby Amsterdam and I am visiting the classes of Vijay Gopala this weekend. I like it very very much because for me it is very interesting to listen to and absorb all the philosophy he tells about. And he gives me really much help with my way of breathing, to control my breath during the asana's. And actually I want to tell you much more about it but my advice is: drop into his classes or plan also a training. Because if you like the philosophy, the pranayama (the breathing) and the great way he teaches the asana's. Then Vijay Gopala is a very good teacher. That is my advice. Namaste.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Erica#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
I am Erica, I am from Zwolle, The Netherlands. I practise Yoga for about two years. I met Vijay Gopala several times at workshops and this time I am at Landsmeer (near Amsterdam), we have a retreat this weekend. What I like most about this retreat is that Vijay has a way to explain things so that you can practise them immediately with asanas, pranayama and meditation. So it is very nice to integrate the things that he tells immediately while practising in meditation. That gives a kind of understanding, not only by the mind but by your whole system. And that's what I like about Yoga Gita very much. And I also really like that he explains things in a way that you see that Yoga is a way of life, it is a science, and it is not just doing the postures but it is much bigger than that. And every time I hear new things, and every time I have a new insight. Maybe I heard it before but this time it arrived. And that's good. That makes that it is always a nice experience. And also we laugh a lot, so that makes it very nice.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Walter#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
My name is Walter, I am from the Netherlands. I am doing this Yoga course for the third time. I was always curious about the saying 'better the world, start with yourself', or knowing more about the Self. And if there is a place where you can learn more about the Self, it's the place to go to Yoga Gita. The teacher is Vijay Gopala, and he is very trustable. He knows a lot about the Yoga science. If you really really want to know more about the Self, about the Yoga I would recommend him as a teacher.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Linda#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
So I started my first Yoga education about 15 years ago now. They were learning these asana's, pranayama and how to meditate. They teached me how to do it. After that I started my own journey. For the last several years I started to miss something in my teaching. I missed the basics of Yoga. I was just doing Yoga without a meaning. I wanted to change profession. Then at that moment Vijay Gopala came on my way. I went to his teacher training and suddenly everything fell into place. I have the feeling that the last 10 years I was in kindergarten and now I am on the University of Yoga. That's my experience now. Here Vijay Gopala is showing you the keys of life. These are the principles you have to learn first. When I practise the asana now, it's from a whole different prospect. I am not just doing the asana but I am really alert and awake in the asana. I am present. It's a total different aspect. My body feels much stronger and there are almost no thoughts. I am really grateful and I am really happy that I have met Vijay Gopala. There is so much to learn... It's a whole life experience and I recommend it to everyone.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Mark#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
Uiteindelijk heb ik besloten om voor persoonlijke verdieping de Yoga Teacher Training blokken te gaan volgen. Wat ik daar heel fijn aan vindt is dat het niet alleen de losse componenten zoals asana, ademhaling, mediteren en filosofie is. Maar dat Vijay Gopala heel goed in staat is om de samenhang tussen dat alles uit te leggen. En dat geeft een compleet overzicht voor mij.
Eventually I decided to attend the Yoga Teacher Training blocks in The Netherlands for personal growth. What I like about it is that it is not only the separate components like asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy. But Vijay Gopala is capable to connect these separate components. This gives a complete overview for me.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Hanne#yoga #spirituality #yogagita #yogateachertraining #testimonialttc
Hello, I am Henna, and I am from Denmark. I am attending the four blocks in Holland of Yoga Gita, and this is the last day of the first block. I discovered Yoga about 10 years ago. I was attending a fitness studio and I was doing a lot of hard training: spinning, running. A friend of mine said that there was a good Yoga teacher. We tried and every week I could feel my muscles getting softer. I stopped all the hard training and did Yoga every day. I thought okay, this makes sense. So I did a yoga teacher training in Denmark. And began teaching and I have been teaching in Denmark for 3,5 years. Then I reached a state where I needed some more. It was not enough for me. So I started looking in Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands. The website of Yoga Gita I really liked. Vijay, our teacher, said some good things on the website.
I contacted Yoga Gita and it was really really nice. Really felt welcome and I decided to join in. Now I am on my last day of the first block. And I am very very pleased. It has been very very nice. Vijay, the teacher, is a extremely good teacher. He is very knowledgable. If you ask him anything he always has a very good answer. He explains the things from different angles. We do a lot of different postures and we analyse them. We not only see the physical benefits, we talk about the deeper meaning as well. It is a lot about not just doing Yoga in a physical sense, but getting in a closer contact with yourself. Working with Yoga in a lot of different aspects. With body, mind and breath. Seeing the body as an instrument to reach a deeper knowledge about yourself. I really have a good feeling this is going to be a good change for me. As well in my life as in my teachings. So I can really recommend.
After 1st week Yoga Teacher Training in The Netherlands.
A second block of 50 hours will be held from June 30 to July 4 2016. You can attend a half day, full day, few days or the full week. Please have a look at our website www.yogagita.org.
Yoga Gita testimonial by Marie-Pier#yoga #yogagita #testimonialttc #yogateachertraining
My name is Marie-Pier, i am from Montréal, Canada, i have just attended a 200 hours Teacher Training Course with Yoga Gita and i wanted to talk about this great experience. I am a student in nursery sciences in university and i came to do this program with the idea of bringing another side of health approach, a more complete side, just not what is happing in your body but what is happening in your mind as well. What i discovered is that it was way more then a Teacher Training Program. It was in itself a total life experience, which i really enjoyed.
By sharing a deep knowledge what is yoga about and what yoga can bring to your life, the teachers of Yoga Gita really bring their students into a real elevation of their consciousness, where they can experience for real what is Yoga and what it can bring to you. It makes you able to dive into yourself, to find your own inner knowledge, to understand how to become a better person and eventually for those who want to become a teacher to become a better teacher. This experience was very very rich.
Everything we need to understand in life, to be more happy, to be more complete, to be more in balance, to be in harmony with existence, meditation, pranayama, your asana practise, it is a total complete holistic way of life and i just really totally recommend everybody to try it once in their life, so, the Teacher Training was really a journey into a better life experience.
Yoga Gita testimonial by Sumati#yoga #yogagita #testimonialttc #yogateachertraining
I came to know Vijay Gopala through my friend in Leiden and i attended some of his workshops during his Europe Tour. Vijay has a very special approach to the practise of yoga which is necessary. What we call nowadays yoga in the west is more asana based. I miss very often the other aspects as breathing techics and meditation which is not incorporated in the practise of yoga. According to me Vijay brings all of these aspects in his teaching, which is a great benefit for yoga practitioners today.
Yoga Gita testimonial by NavyaI am Navya. I am from Delhi. I just finished my one month long teachers training course with yogagita with Vijay Gopala. It was wonderful having done that course. It was great. I have a severe back problem. I have a slipped disk. I tried a lot of doctors and nothing was working. My search ended with Mr. Vijay Gopala, head of Yoga Gita. I am glad I met him. Today I am able to do my routine things that I couldn't do before; to be able to walk; to be able to run. It is amazing to have my life back and I am not handicapped anymore.

Yoga Gita testimonial by Denise#yoga #yogagita #testimonialttc #yogateachertraining
Yoga is the most beautiful way of living. To teach other people is to do it from your own experience and from your own heart, only then you know that you have the right approach to teach other people how you can live your life the way it fits you. The way Vijay Gopala is giving his lessons is through his heart only. It is really easy to follow, you have your own steps which you make in your own time. He gives you the nice experience and a peaceful environment. You have nice talks with him, he guides you through your own process, in your own time. Every step you take, Vijay is there for you, with his warm heart. The lessons are easy to follow, in the west i have never taken lessons as it where never good lessons.
I have met Vijay at a Yoga festival in Holland in Rotterdam, when i saw him, 3 weeks later i booked my fligt to India and i followed the Teacher Training Course, it was amazing, every movement you have to feel it from your own body, the pranayama's are amazing when you do it every morning, you feel the difference in your life you feel the improvement in your balance.
I wish that evereybody can experience this is his life. Specially the sun salutation, if you start with it every morning, the rest of the day you will be feeling very light. Enjoy every minute of it, and follow this course, because it really changes your life from the inside.
Yoga Gita testimonial Kids Yoga TTC by Martine#yoga #yogagita #testimonialttc #yogateachertraining
Hello, I am Martine from The Netherlands from Scheveningen. The first time I met Vijay was in our Yoga studio in Scheveningen where I found out he was also very experienced in bringing Yoga to kids. We talked and we prepared a Kids Yoga workshop for Kids Yoga teachers in november last year. It was very inspiring and i got reallly inspired by his teachings which is in a very very natural way. He is bringing the Yoga as it was written many years ago by Patanjali in such a natural way to the modern times, to this world we are living in, for me the Western world, that is when i started following his teachings when he was in The Netherlands and starting to think of going to India to do the 100 hours Teacher Training in Mysore for Kids.
And that is what I did last August, I went there on my own without my daughter and my husband, which was an experience as it is. It was great spending two weeks just learning and deepening yoga for kids as a mother as a yoga teacher for kids, and we also met different teachers we had very inspiring discussions about for exemple education, teaching, philosopy, and many classes of Vijay himself. The second week we also went to schools, which i think is a very extra thing which you don’t get in any other teacher training for Kids Yoga to meet the kids in the school. In India kids are already used to get Yoga at school, we worked together with them a couple of times together with the other students, we were ablt to teach them, to have fun with them and to get our own feedback on the teaching which was very helpful. Well, I came home with many new thoughts, games and activities, to take with me to the kids.
Even more important i took a lot for my own practice, bringing at home as a mother and my own practising each day, because i think when you work with kids most important thing is to be as unconditioned as possible, as empty as possible, just to be happy for no reason, like the kids are able to do to be so beautiful. Thank you.

I just finished the part two of the teachers training with Yogagita and Vijay. It was an incredible experience. I feel like I learned so much. Its incredible, in just few days how much can really change. The information that Vijay shares is unmatched. Its truly authentic and really transforming. My whole perspective of Yoga has completely shifted. Vijay is an incredible person. I highly recommend, even if you can come for one day, it is worth it.

Hello my name is Gaylord Morales. I come from Panama City, Panama; Central America. I found out about yogagita through a friend and I couldn't be any more happier finding a program like this. Coming to Mysore, coming to India has been an amazing experience; going to markets to buy some fresh fruits and vegetables to eat then in daily basis; to getting up in the morning and going to the course is something that you are going to enjoy doing.

Hi my name is Johan, I come from Holland. I’ve just done the Teacher training at Yoga Gita in Mysore. I wanted to share some of my experiences with you. I’ve done some Yoga before I came here but still, I find the teachings here quite special. In the sense that I think that classical Indian philosophy is nicely merge with the asana, meditation and breathing exercises. That was something that makes it kind of complete for me. I really liked the scientific approach of the subject and the detailed explanations. What I felt more in the past is that things were taught in a rough way and I felt here that the time was taken to really explain postures in detail. That helped me to understand the process. My experience has been very positive and I learned a lot about Yoga and my Self really. The food is really delicious here, it’s cooked with a lot of care. The center is in a nice location. It’s in the city but it’s more in a kind of neighbourhood with a lot of greenery and birds. I really like that in the evening you can walk out and taste a bit of the Indian life. I hope that when you will do the course you will have the same experience as I had. Good luck.

Yoga Gita, Mysore
Testimonial 200hrs by Linus#yogagita #testimonialttc #yogateachertraining #yoga
Hello, I am Linus from Sweden. Now I am here in Yoga Gita, Mysore, India. Doing the 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training. For me it's been an interesting and intense journey. In a way that I got a lot of perspectives about my own practise and in the subject of Yoga. Before coming here I have been practising Yoga for quite some time. But when I came here and start to practise I realised that what I have been doing until now was a very superficial practise. From here I learned in depth what Yoga actually is and what it means. For me it was starting over from the beginning again. So in that way I gained a lot and I am looking forward to take that knowledge into my day to day practise. I would recommend this course to anyone that would really like to learn yoga in a proper way and get a proper understanding what yoga is and what it means. Not only on a superficial level, also in depth to get a wide understanding for the subject. And even for people that have been practising Yoga and want to have a wider understanding for what Yoga means and what it is. I think this kind of teaching really helps you to implement other aspects in day to day life. You can bridge the practise on the mat with life till your actual life in whatever you are doing. Vijay's approach, his teachings can really attract especially people from the West. We are used to an intellectual way of looking at things. He can really bridge the intellectual part with the practical part. For many people including myself it is also easy to take that understanding. And to understand why we practise. India really makes you question life, in the sense that life is very very opposite to many other places and especially to Europe. The experience of being in a culture living after Indian morals makes you see life from a different perspective. And to me, it means that, it is easier to let go of things. You understand that a lot of things in your life doesn't mean so much and you can still have a good quality of life. India is an amazing place to be.
200 hrs Yoga Teacher Training, Mysore 2018
Testimonial 200hrs by EmilySo I am Emily and I'm from Belgium. I have been practising Yoga for five years on and off and seriously for 2 years now. I think I just ended up here, it just happened. I think I just always been obsessed with understanding the creation and why we are here and how does that work and I don't know, deep questions since I am kid. And I just met Marijke and Vijay in another Teacher Training and we connected very well so we decided to come very fast. So here we are and every day I am very grateful and I feel I am very blessed that I met them because actually it just answered a lot of the questions I had. Even though I have been into the subject for a while and wondering and wondering. I think this is a place where the secrets are revealed. Actually it is the only school where I have been to where the philosophy meets the practise on the Yoga mat. And you can really understand how by practising Yoga and the way you are and act on the mat are going to reflect in your day to day life. The approach is really pure, it goes to the core. The philosophy classes are impressive, they are mind blowing, they just explodes everywhere in the room, I can't stop drinking his words. It is just a wonderful way of teaching. About India, India is a beautiful place, intense full of colour, full of nice people. It is a perfect place to learn because you learn the subject but actually you learn about yourself. You've been pushed to the edge of yourself. Being here you learn other stuff as well. Just by being in another culture so different and so extreme. I have been jumping from courses to courses, always wanted to know more and more and at one point I thought maybe we should stop learning and just apply and practise what we learn. But then I came here and I met Vijay and I thought now I know why I have been jumping. I think I didn't find what I have been looking for before. Now it feels like I found the one who, I hope, will be with me my whole my life. To keep practising, to evolve and to be a better human being with my environment, with my friends and the whole planet and everybody. And really doing Yoga the whole, not only practising, but the whole Yoga philosophy is something magical. It brings you into the magical world, and you start to see changes in you, in yourself and that's where the magic happens. I am a magic seeker, it is my path and it is my question. And I wanted to say thank you to Marijke, Vijay and Yoga Gita and to all the people I met because I know that they all brought me here right now. Thank you!
