Student's Review: Yoga Teacher Training in India

Larisa Dumitrache
We get what we deserve and I feel truly blessed to deserve such wonderful teachers. When you enter into Samatva Yogalaya, you enter into the house of yoga.
No doubt Krishna and Sangeeta teach you asana, pranayama, philosophy, anatomy and everything you need to know; but here you are not only a student, you are treated as a family member and you get to experience the yogic life with these kind and humble people. You learn about equanimity and awareness.
You learn what Yoga really is. I am grateful to be part of this yogic family!

Choosing a YTT is quite overwhelming. There are what feel like a million programs. I feel so fortunate to have chosen samatva ! If you have ytt shopping fatigue .. look no further!! My time at Samatva did way more than just help improve my asanas form.
This program is a deep dive into the roots of yoga, traditional Indian culture, the mental and physical practice behind yoga, pranayama, mantra chanting, foundational corrections, antatomy, philosophy .. complete with amazing Indian meals and great living conditions.
Singita, Krishna and the whole crew really take you in as family. They are genuine, honest people with their hearts so clearly invested in their students and the work they do. In a sea of yoga schools in rishikesh, I truly believe this school is special and the best out there. They don’t take on too many students in each program so that you get individualized attention and are able to closely bond with your group. This program is an experience of a lifetime and I’m already hoping to plan my next visit back. Thank you Krishna and Singita for your sincerity and hard work to provide us so much meaning the past month.

Out of all the Yoga schools in Rishikesh I was so fortunate to choose Samatva Yogalaya to do my 500hr YTT. I will do it over and over again with no doubt. I enjoyed every moment there with KrishnaJi and Sangeeta. I learned and lived everything I needed and I´m so grateful for that. Thank you for everything and for making me feel part of your family. If you are looking for a great yoga school in Rishikesh this is the place you are looking for! I definitely recommend it.You will enjoy it!!

It was truly one of the best experiences of my life to train and study with Krishna and become a part of his yoga family. I’ve learned more than I ever thought possible over the course of my 500h yoga teacher training. The knowledge I gain about my self, life, and all the aspects of yoga is beyond value. The experiences I shared will remain with me for the rest of my life and I am so thankful for that!
