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 naive 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.- Ami Majithia
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.

If I have to say what were some of the best days in my life, it would be the 28 days that I spent at Govardhan Ecovillage recently learning Yoga Teacher's Training Certification course at Govardhan School of Yoga.

Our teachers were so patient, easily approachable, dedicated, humorous and knowledgeable. I chose to do the course just to connect with myself and learn more yoga. Though, I dreaded the fact that I would have to practice teaching as well, which I could not see myself doing at all. But the way the teachers led us through the process was so powerful that I was able to find that spark of confidence within myself that I was looking for. It was truly life changing, and I am grateful for every part of it. I would definitely love to visit Govardhan Ecovillage again to experience this pure ecstasy.- Narayani Pokhrel
