Student Reviews

Mauve Leory, France

Following the 200TTC at Raj was the wisest decision I made this past year. About practice of the Asanas, they corrected all my bad habits, developed my abilities and made me more confident in myself, far beyond my expectations.
I deepened my learnings in Pranayama thanks to a clever leading and I widely broadened my horizons in philosophy and meditation.
All the teachers are very mindful and skilled, the staff is helpful, and the place is an additional asset with its comfy rooms, delightful garden and various complementary activities.
