Spending almost a month of my life at Govardhan School of Yoga in Govardhan Ecovillage learning yoga was one of the best phases of my life. I got to know about them through their website and their association with Iskcon was one of the key factors of me enrolling into the Yoga Teacher’s Training Certification course. Though a naïve to Yoga, I didn’t feel like such after starting with the course here. Such was my comfort level with the yoga teachers there. All the sessions in the course were quite good and I gelled very well with all the other participants making the time spent well worth. Everything right from the food, facilities and ambience were very well organized and gave an impression of a professional set up amidst the nature’s tranquility. A must place to visit if you love yoga and intend to learn and teach it in your lifetime.

The first acquaintance that I had with Govardhan School of Yoga was through its website that led me to opt for the 28 days YTTC program at Govardhan Ecovillage.

The environment in Govardhan School of Yoga, it’s surroundings, all yoga teachers and the mood of the people in general will give you a truthful version of the lifestyle there amidst the sanctity of yoga. All this will make you feel confident to travel back home and take up yoga teaching. The time you spent at the yoga school here will help you leave with enthusiasm and to keep on learning even more about this practice. Set aside the plan of teaching, even the techniques and practices you learn will help you improve in your daily life. I have been fortunate enough to be blessed by the purity of this place and would definitely look forward to visit here again.
