Upaya yoga... I could write a whole book about my amazing journey at Upaya Yoga. First of all, the location is like a piece of heaven. From one side of the Yoga Shala you can see the mountains and if you just turn your head you can admire the sea! Surrounded by nature, this made our Yoga classes unforgettable. Now the food... before coming to India I had never eaten Indian food before.. ever since that training, ill never stop eating indian food! Everything is always fresh and so healthy. Chef Prem have some serious skills. Accommodation.. I mean who wouldn't want a room with AC with a Sea view? I loved it. Lets get to some serious stuff now. What I have learned here literally changed my life. From all sorts of meditation classes to Philosophy classes to Anatomy classes to Ashtanga classes with Praba :) so many amazing classes! most importantly, ill never forget these Art of teaching classes we had with Master Krishna. Learning + laughing from your heart = best combination you can ever ask for. These experienced Yogis will make you love Yoga even more! I loved this place so much that I decided to stay for another month. If you are looking for a life changing experience that will help you become a Yoga guide.. this place is for you. Namaste �� thank you to all the staff and everybody that was present � Jessica, from Canada :)

Just completed my 200-hour Teachers' Training Course in Goa and feel great. It was an amazing experience! Teachers and staff are experienced, helpful and funny, which helps when days get intense. I highly recommend Upaya Yoga to all those who would like to deepen their yoga practice. Namaste

I have completed an incredible transformational month at Upaya doing my 200Hr Yoga Teacher Training Course, in Goa, India. Its hard to know where to start with this humbling experience, but I am so blessed to have found my way to Upaya Yoga. It is something that everyone need to experience for themselves as its such a life changing personal journey. Firstly I would say that this course is for everyone. even if you don't want to be a teacher, even if you don't know how to meditate, there is no limitations - in my group there was a 71 year old and she was incredible, so no excuses!. The programme is so perfectly structured and balanced, I felt like I got knowledge in all yogic areas. The days were always varied with Mantra Chanting, Meditation (also dancing and fun meditations!), Indian Philosophy, Anatomy, Asana practice, Pranayama. We ate so well with fresh local fruits and vegetables, beautiful home cooked ounces and dinners that were different every day. The teachers gave so much time and energy and love to each and every one of us, there every step of the physically, emotionally and mentally challenging journey. The location in Goa is the best, the beach is on our doorstep, a river behind us. its the perfect place to studyYoga. The area to practice in the garden or sit and read a book is just bliss. I can not recommend this place higher, a piece of my heart will always be here with the beautiful people, and the lessons I shared and learned at Upaya. Krishna and the team. Thank you so much for everything. Namaste.

I am home now for almost 3 weeks and I still feel amazing. There has been so much happened to me in my month at Upaya in Goa. A lot of people ask me now; Did it bring me what I was looking for? I can answer this question full with YES! And maybe more than that. It's very difficult to put in words, but I'll try ... .. First of all .... I'm breathing again, both literally and figuratively, I live! I found myself, I know who I am and what I stand for.

I can answer this question full with YES! And maybe more than that. It's very difficult to put in words, but I'll try ... .. First of all .... I'm breathing again, both literally and figuratively, I live! I found myself, I know who I am and what I stand for. I gained so much more self-confidence. In the yoga (poses, meditation, breathing etc) I find my relaxation and rest where I was looking for so long. My head is quieter, but also my actions and even I think my talking. I stopped fighting my limitations and could look better from a distance to my body and mind. I've learned what your body and mind can respond to nutrition (great food at Upaya!). Over 7 years I did not feel as good and happy as how I feel now! I know how important it is to incorporate yoga in my daily life to keep me feeling as I feel now. And of course, I'm officially certified yoga teacher by the positive completion of this 200-hour education. Initially, I thought; I can never teach 90 minutes in 4 weeks, but the great team prepares you step by step and unnoticed, you get more self-confidence and learn how to build a lesson to 90 minutes. I have a lot of plans and ideas for the future, but "there is no future", as Krishna always said, I live in the now and hold on and expand further what I've learned in this wonderful journey, but also very intense weeks and there is something coming on my path that I am convinced of. Thanks to you all, Prachi, Prem, Rajshree, Prbha, Chetan and Krishna Namaste, Nathalie from Holland

I had a wonderful time here in upaya yoga for my 200hr teacher training and I would totally recommend this school to everyone who wants to get into yoga on a deeper level and who really wants to teach yoga. The teachers are very knowledgable and the athmosphere is very familiar here which I really enjoyed. Also the place is very quiet and peaceful, I would come back here any time. Thanks to whole Upaya yoga team who made my time so special here!
