Sharron- Switzerland

"After my teacher training in India with Arhanta Yoga, this Yin Yoga course was a great opportunity to refresh my knowledge and to develop myself further. I have learned a lot about teaching but also about my personal yoga path. Thank you for this wonderful experience!"

Linda- Spain

"This Yin Yoga Teacher Training course was an amazing addition to the 200 hour training by Arhanta Yoga. Once again Arhanta has taught me a great deal which will help me to improve and expand my yoga classes. Thanks again!"

Helma- The Netherlands

"A wonderful experience! I have learned a lot, also because I am a Shiatsu therapist and not a yoga teacher. I specifically enjoyed the philosophy classes with Yogi Ram and the meditation sessions. The other teachers are also very inspiring. I am also very happy to have met so many new and wonderful people. Thank you Team Arhanta!"
