Student Reviews

Mauve Leroy, 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.

Ben Chapman, UK

200 hour ytt at Raj yoga was simply life changing. I learnt a great deal about the history of yoga, as well as the physical and mental practice. It is undoubtably the best decision I have ever made in terms of treating my body and professional life. There has been a huge transformational process since qualifying in December, so much so that I am now aware of the present moment thus consuming life with all its potential. I feel wonderfully motivated and excited to carry what I have learnt through life, feeling confident within my own practice and more importantly becoming a better human being day by day.
