What Our Student Said About Our Course

Cleo Mascha Herré

Cleo Mascha Herré
It was the perfect yoga school in India to get away from everyday life. I could fully concentrate on the knowledge the teachers had to offer, which was a lot of helpful and interesting things. I grew very much in the time spent there, not only as a future yoga teacher but also personally. If you are willing to fully open yourself to India and its ways as well as the yogic lifestyle this yoga school has a great capacity to help you on your way. Besides that, you also get enough time to discover the city itself. I had a great time, thank you

That journey towards your inner core and true self. A path which isn’t always easy to take on your own. Thanks to Gyan Yog Breath I’m definitely further in my journey! Only a few days before the course ends, these past weeks feel like a great ride What an inspiring, insightful, transforming experience during my yoga ttc in Rishikesh. It’s intense, full on, challenging and very, very rewarding. A safe place to explore yourself deeply. Vipin and Anki are wonderful, lovely people, whatever you need they are there for you. Transformation power meditation with Vipin has taken me to unknown places within myself. While the yoga lessons with Anki are really nice and fun, she inspires you to do your best without feeling pressure to perform. Her classes are about learning and enjoying the flow! The philosophy teacher, is eloquent, knowledgeable, funny, has an endless resource of inspiring, beautiful stories which make theses classes unforgettable! I’m grateful Gyan Yog Breath not only crossed my path but has given me a much clearer idea of what my path is.

It was my first time in India and everything was new, but I really felt at home at the Gyan Yog Breath Yoga School. The people were super nice, the teachers were amazing, the food was home cooked and really fresh. I loved the whole experience, it helped me a lot to achieve my personal goals and peace of mind and I am really thankful to all wonderful people I met at the Gyan Yog Breath School.

It feels like a family I know since a long long time. These last two weeks are just amazing, and luckily there are two more weeks ahead of us. We’re learning so much. Not only about yoga and philosophy but also about ourself’s. Emotionally it feels like a rollercoaster, with a lot of ups and downs. It is intense but in a good way. Don’t let it hold you back! The schedule is quite busy, but there is also enough time and space for some moments for relaxing in the sun. Next week we will start practice teaching yoga, I’m so excited! The team of Gyan Yog Breath is amazing. Vipin and Anki are lovely, they take care of all of us in a really touching and personal way!
