I am training with a teacher from The Yoga Institute. My experience with learning and training in Yoga has been marvelous. The quality of the teaching and the teacher surely makes the difference as it not only includes my training but it has also made me aware of the benefits of practicing every posture. Yoga is not only a workout pattern, it is a life changing process. Many thanks to The Yoga Institute for all the help.
I’m a proud student of The Yoga Institute. I joined the institute in late 1960’s when people weren’t aware about Yoga & thought it was close to being a Sanyasi. The Yoga Institute has changed my perspective towards Yoga i.e., it is not only about Asana but it is a much deeper subject. Yoga has become an essential part of my life. Dr. Saab’s teachings have really helped me in my life & I consider myself to be fortunate enough to learn Yoga from him. This spiritual abode brings in happy memories & you get to experience peace within. I will always remember this quote of Dr. Saab “Less is More”.
I joined The Yoga Institute four years back and since then there is no looking back. Joining The Yoga Institute has been the wisest decision of my life. Smt. Hansaji has helped me replace disturbances in my life with sheer happiness. It has not only helped me in my singing career but as an individual also. It's been a great experience & now Yoga has become an essential part of my life.
This is the first time I am doing yoga and I am enjoying it a lot; I feel really relaxed. My teacher from The Yoga Institute makes the whole process quite simplified and fun for me. I am in my last week of pregnancy and I regret not starting yoga before. I might continue my yoga lessons even after my delivery. Thank you for this great experience.
I have been a part of The Yoga Institute since over two decades now. I would say that I have not only personally benefitted from their teachings but also introduced the Corporate Training Program to our team at Brescon. I would most certainly recommend this course to all corporate executives who wish to be benefitted through the ancient science of Yoga. When practiced regularly, the yoga techniques taught in this program help in stress management and enhancing the quality of professional and personal life.
I first went to The Yoga Institute in November 1989. Back then, I was going through unusual circumstances and was in a state of depression. The 2 days Stress Management Camp that I attended and an encounter with Dr. Jayadeva altered the course of my life. Today I’ve staff members who have stayed with me for over 30 years now and this is because of the ideals that the Institute has inculcated in me.
I have been associated with The Yoga Institute since 1979. It has helped me go through the upheavals of my life with a balanced state of mind and had helped me achieve whatever I have professionally. You cannot underestimate the importance of innovation, technology and strategy but it is as important to have values, beliefs and philosophy in business. To sum it up, I would say that Jetking is where it is today because of its association with yoga.
I joined The Yoga Institute 25 years back when I had back pain, cervical & a lot of stress due to work. The atmosphere of The Yoga Institute is so relaxing. I’ve never seen this kind of an environment before. Hansaji & Dr. Saab recommended me to do 7 days Health Camp & Regular class which was very helpful. I was an emotional, hyper & a negative person and now I’ve stopped unnecessary thinking & living a peaceful life. I love the “Herbal tea” of the Institute. I am really grateful to the institute for everything.
I joined The Yoga Institute in 1980 as a student in Special Class. While being there, I realized Yoga is much deeper subject than just a tool for good health. Later I joined 7 month TTC & learnt a lot in that with the blessings of my guru Smt. Hansaji & Dr. Jayadeva. The Yoga Institute is a very special place. It focuses on bhavas, feelings & emotions. Yoga is something that brings you closer to the higher world. It has transformed my life and has taught me the kind of attitude one should have towards life.
For me yoga is about changing yourself rather than changing other people. It’s about complete surrender. Both good and bad things happen because they are both inevitable. We must learn to accept what comes our way and move on. Asanas and pranayamas when done daily definitely aide physical and mental development. Other than that maintaining a daily routine where one gets up early in the morning and sleeps on time, eats on time, etc. really helps one perform better.
The Yoga Institute has moulded me & made me what I am today as an Executive Coach & Corporate Leadership Behavior Trainer. I’m able to see the influence of this Institute’s teaching in everything I do. The Yoga Institute completely moulded my personality and my approach towards life. I’m doing justice to my profession because of the training I got at this esteemed centre -The Yoga Institute.
I came to The Yoga Institute as a teenager & joined Special Class under mother Sita Devi Yogendra & since then I’ve been associated with the institute. I can’t imagine my life without the Institute. Institute is a part of me & I feel I’m a part of the Institute. Thank you The Yoga Institute for transforming my life.
I joined The Yoga Institute in May, 1986 for the 7 day health camp. The nurturing environment at The Yoga Institute where work is germinated to provide opportunity for self-growth has smoothen many rough edges in my personality and provided a larger view of life. Dr. saab used my strengths to remove my weakness. In all I was greatly helped to reduce irritability. Also the caring project started by Dr. Saab helped the Sadhaks to practice Ahimsa. I’ve done many camps and tailor made camps for various groups at the Institute as a teacher and it has been a great experience.
The Yoga institute is my second home. Our Alma Mater! It lifted our lives from the mundane to the purposeful. In the true sense we were able to understand the true meaning and purpose of our lives and existence on earth!! We owe our new birth to our guru’s, Dr Saheb and Smt. Hansaji. We remain indebted to them for making us what we are today.
A place where one can transform oneself into a genuine human being if one chooses to be. I don't say there is no negativity here after all its part of real world, people from all walks of life and nature come here, but beauty is that we are taught how to accept them and remain positive. So we learn by actual experiences. Strengthening the positivity is the core in teaching. My journey in the Institute has been a positively transforming one. Thanks to the Founder, Mother Sitadevi, Dr. Jayadeva and Hansaji.
Everyone has a turning point in life and I had one when I did one year TTC at The Yoga Institute. After which, in 2009 I took up the job of librarian, hence stayed connected with the Institute. Ever since I’ve been here, the positive environment of this place, the amazing set teachers, colleagues and students make me feel much happier in life. I’m very grateful to them. I feel eternally blessed by God to be here. Words fall short to express my gratitude for this place. I’m grateful to our gurus Dr. Saab, Smt. Hansaji & Mrs. Desai. Special thanks to Mrs. Desai, Hrishiji & Praneeji for creating a new outlook as a librarian.
The Yoga Institute is like to meet your parents for the first time of your life unknowingly. I’ve discovered my extended family at The Yoga Institute. I was a 3 Months TTC student and it was a great experience. TYI is like an oxygen bubble where you live for 3 months and mould yourself to become a better human. I will always remember Hansaji telling us to remove our black glasses and start seeing with a positive approach. I want to say “Thank you” to The Yoga Institute for allowing us to live this beautiful experience.
I was interested in Yoga since a long time. I was practicing it in Spain, China & other places however it was in The Yoga Institute that I learnt what real Yoga is. I discovered that Yoga is not just a set of gymnastic stretches but comprises philosophy & study of mind. I started coming just for some weekend classes, then gave a try to 21 Days Better Living Course, which I loved and I really recommend it. Later i did my Teachers Training Course and now I’m a Yoga instructor. Also the Institute is QCI certified. The Sattvic food offered at The Yoga Institute is delicious. I think Yoga can have impact on our lives and The Yoga Institute is one of the best places in the world to discover it.
They say when the student is ready the Guru appears. I came across The Yoga Institute when I was questioning the purpose of my life. Life experiences had battered my ego enough to receive the wisdom of Yoga in a spirit of humility and surrender. Whatever work I was assigned at the Institute I did it with dedication, realizing the value of being committed to whatever I did. I have experienced exponential personal growth in a short period of time. I actualized my creative gifts as a leader, teacher, counsellor and writer. Every day of my life I express gratitude to the almighty for bestowing me with the gift of The Yoga Institute. For me it is not just an institute, it is a sanctuary for my soul.
I always desired to do some kind of formal training in Yoga and got this wonderful opportunity at The Yoga Institute. I had joined to become a teacher but as the course progressed, I realised, I needed to be a student first as there was so much to explore and study about oneself. So I started working towards self development.Connecting asanas with attitude (Dharma, Jnana, Vairagya and Aishwarya) is the most important and beautiful part of learning at The Yoga Institute. Chanting yoga sutras along with the Gurus has been a relaxing and soothing experience in my 7 months TTC. Hansaji's talks, divine energy of Dr. Jayadeva, lessons by amazing teachers, dedication of the staff members, peaceful and clean environment of the institute helps me to become a better person each day. I am extremely grateful to God for being associated with The Yoga Institute in this lifetime.
