from our graduates

  • YTTC Grduate

    I finished my 200 hours YTTC at Smriti Yoga last year: It was amazing. Lovely people, great teachers, fantastic food and perfect atmosphere. We got a lot of personal attention and I learned a lot about Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation but also a lot about life in general. I am back in the Netherlands and teaching Yoga here, which I love. For sure I will come back to Smriti Yoga one day. Kisses xx

    My TTC with Smriti Yoga was truly a life changing experience! It was complete magic from the get go – the people, the place, the food, and the sense of family… It made me connect with and truly understand yoga on a much deeper level, and I would highly recommend it to anyone! There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t miss the magic of that jungle!

    I saw this teacher training as an opportunity like no other to take time out by myself – time to forgive, to accept and to let go, amongst other things. And I did that. And so much more, which I simply cannot put into words. The daily yoga practice evolved into a powerful healing and empowering tool and I discovered strength inside of me I didn’t know existed. Beyond that, I opened my heart to a group of people that I now love dearly and who have allowed me to be myself.

    Smriti Yoga was and will always be the place of transformation for me. My journey in this huge organic farm with the seasoned teachers and students from different parts of the world was one of the most amazing experiences ever. I would really recommend Smriti Yoga for its space, food and great vibes to really transform and grow with the help of three beautiful teachers and also the hospitality of the lovely family at Transhikar spice farm.Namaste

    Smriti Yoga has an unbeatable location that provides an ideal environment for self-reflection and study. The individualized teaching and low student-teacher ratio ensure maximum preparation to pursue yoga teaching after the course

    Allison Crawford USA
  • YTTC Graduate

    I was afraid of travelling alone to India and anxious about other participants being more advanced but I couldn’t have made a better choice of yoga teacher training school. Smriti Yoga Farm is extremely beautiful with amazing surroundings. The food is delicious, accommodation is neat and the teachers are outstanding. I would say the training at Smriti Yoga is once in a lifetime experience. Simply perfect without exaggeration.
