Some reviews of our students
Carolina Granger, USA
It was a privilege to travel to Dharamsala and take classes with such gifted teachers at Chandra Yoga! Their focus on teaching diverse styles of Yoga made it easier for me to choose the style that best suited my personal practice. They taught us to reach our maximum potential as far as our own body awareness, which facilitated the ultimate goal which is to connect with students' physical and spiritual needs. Most teachers had a different background and nationality, which added a unique element to each class. Before I started my training I had doubts that I could become a teacher myself, but only a couple of weeks upon returning home I taught a few classes and my students were completely satisfied and wanting more! One of the greatest experiences at Chandra was the connections I made with other fellow Yogis and the satisfaction that my teacher certification came from an organization filled with love and integrity
Devin Hogan, USA
It was an amazing experience I would not trade for the world. I grew as a person in every way possible. I knew when I signed up that it would be a chance to grow and learn but I had know idea it would be such a positive life changing experience -- I am so happy to be certified through Chandra Yoga International! My gratitude for the teachers and fellow yogis cannot be put in words
Naoko Kojima, Japan
First, I would like to say “Thank You” to all staff and teachers. When I was sick here, everyone worried about me, and really helped me, and I appreciate that. It was a good experience for me. It was hard actually, but I got very precious things. All of the things that happened here because of my treasure. I won’t forget about it. It was also hard to take and make the classes in English for me, but friendship helped me very much. There is more important things than language. We all learned about yoga everyday together. Thank you so much
Elizabeth Griffith, USA
I absolutely loved my time with Chandra Yoga International. I had an unforgettable experience and gained immense amounts of knowledge and wisdom while making friends from all over the world. I would recommend this school to others in a heartbeat. Although I will say Chandra Yoga International has a strict policy on attendance and participation... Through my experience thus far, I have learned that not all yoga schools are created equally... and what sets Chandra Yoga apart from other schools is that it maintains tradition and holds one accountable for the journey of which an individual chooses to embark on with knowledge and support along the way. This school is the real deal. It is definitely challenging, but it is worth it
