Yoga is not just a physical exercise, it is an exercise of both mind and body. The philosophy class motivates your mind to be inquisitive and dive deeper into the vast ocean of vedic learnings and Yoga.
3 Perfecting the Asanas
Anyone can do Yoga by watching a youtube video, then what is the need of Gurus? The asanas can be performed, but they need to be mastered and perfected and unless you are in company of someone who has mastered it, you will never come to know your flaws. The teachers align you everyday and by the end of the course, you are not only perfectly aligned but you also understand the importance of alignment.

We use traditional Yogic methods and discourage all apbhrans(Modified forms) of Yoga. The students must understand that the derived forms do not have a vedic(Ancient) scientific origin. They are great exercise forms but Yoga is beyond the physical self.

Intoxication of any form will get you expelled with no refunds.

They can transfer their booking to another month or another student upto 15 days days from the date of start of the course. In such cases, the students would have to pay the fee for the month they are transferring their booking to instead of the originally booked fee.
I did my yoga teacher training here. The quality/price ratio was very good, especially since I have heard much worse things about other places. The teachers were great, the food was awesome and the atmosphere was nice at the ashram. Of course, there were times/days when all those things weren’t as good but there are always up and downs, that’s part of life.
I had successfully completed the 200 Yoga Teacher Training gaining my teaching certificate. I had truly an incredible – life changing month at the Avdhoot Ashram and have learned a huge amount in such a short period of time. I had also grown as a person both physically and mentally. I am very confident in my asanas and get into poses deeper than ever, and my mind seems sharper and more focused. I am ever so grateful to my incredible teachers Vikas, Siddhant, Vicky and Vipul, and of course to YMYS for all that I had learned. Namaste.
IYMS is a great place with supportive people. From airport pickup to every Yoga class you feel the personal touch in everything. The food, the people, everything is just wonderful. If you are planning to send someone to India for Yoga, it’s the best place. The ashram is located in the city and you can easily go to any place you want as there are a lot of tuk tuk that can take you anywhere.
