I attended the 2014 December 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course. It really feels like coming to Santhi was meant to be. I was suppose to attend another Yoga Teacher Training course in the North India which completely fell through and at the very last minute contacted Reshma (literally the weekend before the course started) to see if they could fit me in by any chance – which they could! At first I had mixed feeling, I really don't like the south of India, but then again I was finally going to do my Yoga TTC. I don't regret going one single bit. I even started liking the south, which was probably more to the serenity and sheer joy I felt from coming from the daily schedule of Yoga Teacher Training at Santhi. We had some fantastic teachers, I absolutely adored JP who we had for every morning asana lesson and for the yoga teachings before lunch. He was just the type of teacher I had wished for, he said so many fantastic things and really put not only yoga in perspective for me, but also religion and spirituality. What I really loved about the Yoga TTC course was the variety of teachers we came across. Santhi yoga really went out of their way so that we could experience different ways of teaching yoga. I would definitely recommend Santhi to anybody!

I had the most wonderful one month yoga teacher training with santhi yoga, the teachers where amazing, friendly, professional & humble. The month helped me realise my true self and my potential. The growth I experienced was indescribable. Santhi studio is clean, comfortable and safe, the daily meals delicious & filling and the course content educational. You will not regret doing your yoga teacher training here. The people I trained along with are my family and memories made here will be in my heart. Hope to return for advanced training.

The Yoga Teacher Training program was very well structured and the management was very responsive and responsible. All of the lectures were very interesting and were held by good and qualified teachers. I learned a lot. I really enjoyed the afternoon practical sessions and always left the classes with more energy than before. Overall I had a wonderful experience and have benefitted so much from the classes
