RYS-TTC ~ Student Reviews

My experience @Shiva Shakti Yoga 200 Hour Teacher Training Course in India Goa has been the most incredible inspiring decision and time of my life. I have learnt so much about me and life here and most importantly that me dont know anything. I had taken another yoga certification before but this really inspired me, taught me and showed me sides of yoga that I am absolutely in love with. Most importantly it inspired me to continue learning and growing. After this 200 hr. YTT course I will continue to share this knowledge of yoga. Yoga is my life. It's always been and sometime we just need to activate it...

Guadalupe McGregor

Attending Shiva shakti yoga for 200 Hour Teacher Training Course in India has been a transformational part of my yoga journey. I have learned so much & this has enhanced my own practice so much. I will continue with my daily spiritual practice or ASANAs, Pranyama, Meditations. I will never forget fellow yogis I have met, the fantastic teachings all the lessons I have learned. I will also take inspiration from teachers here AT SHIVA SHAKTI YOGA, especially from Yogi Manish whose devotion to yoga & his students has been unforgettable & profound.
