Here is what our students say
It helped me so much to work on my fitness ready for labor.
Unexpectedly I had to leave India and move back to the West. I left the area where I was living with different feelings. I was determined to keep my spirit up though being 5 months pregnant. My last month in India I spent in this beautiful area with yogi Shashi Kant as my teacher.
Abdrew Din/ Student
This course was life-changing for me.
I can highly recommend Maharishi Yoga Peeth School for anyone wanting to become a yoga teacher or deepen their personal practice and understanding of all aspects of yoga. The small class sizes and all the incredible knowledge Yogi Sidharth shares create a wonderful atmosphere of yoga in the truest sense.
Marlena McNamara/ student
I was doing the 200-hour training in 2019, and it was a very nutritious and intense experience.
Yogi Charan is a being with a warm heart, dedicated 100% to his vocation. Always attentive and aware of his students to help them if necessary. Whenever I returned to India since then, I´ve gone to visit him.
Eva Om Gómez/ Student
