I had a great experience and I’m glad to have the 500 hour yoga training at Nirvana Yoga School. I improved a lot in just a few weeks. I spent 2 months there and the experience was incredible. The course was well scheduled. I made a lot of friends there and the teachers explained everything very well. Thanks again to all the gurus. I highly recommend the school to everyone.

I’m happy to choose the school for my yoga training. The curriculum includes interesting materials and a well-conducted schedule. I always got support from the teachers and they really cared about all students. The food, excursion, and other activities were fun and well-chosen. I’ll always remember the training at Nirvana Yoga School very fondly.

It was a transformative and life-changing 60 days for me. I felt so happy being there. All the meals were delicious. I was very comfortable during my training in the school. All the teachers were great. They took great care of all the trainees. They are kind, and funny, and would recommend Nirvana Yoga School to anyone who’s looking for the best yoga school in India.

I completed my training and it was a wonderful experience. I felt like a part of their yoga family. The teachers were attentive and paid individual attention to each student. Sunday activities and excursions were another highlight of the course. We learned various aspects of yoga and teachers focused on the improvements.

I had a great experience and I’m glad to have the 500 hour yoga training at Nirvana Yoga School. I improved a lot in just a few weeks. I spent 2 months there and the experience was incredible. The course was well scheduled. I made a lot of friends there and the teachers explained everything very well. Thanks again to all the gurus. I highly recommend the school to everyone.

I’m happy to choose the school for my yoga training. The curriculum includes interesting materials and a well-conducted schedule. I always got support from the teachers and they really cared about all students. The food, excursion, and other activities were fun and well-chosen. I’ll always remember the training at Nirvana Yoga School very fondly.
Marina Studer
It was a transformative and life-changing 60 days for me. I felt so happy being there. All the meals were delicious. I was very comfortable during my training in the school. All the teachers were great. They took great care of all the trainees. They are kind, and funny, and would recommend Nirvana Yoga School to anyone who’s looking for the best yoga school in India.
Jessie Kotov
I completed my training and it was a wonderful experience. I felt like a part of their yoga family. The teachers were attentive and paid individual attention to each student. Sunday activities and excursions were another highlight of the course. We learned various aspects of yoga and teachers focused on the improvements. They focused on our strengths and weaknesses to assist us.
