    "I am a businesswoman simultaneously running a business and raising two daughters with my utmost dedication.I went to India last November wishing to deepen my yoga practice and I felt going to the roots of yoga: India was all indicated. Vinay was my personal yoga guru for 10 days."

    "As a north American fast-paced citizen, I arrived to Vinay, ready to ‘perform’ yoga, challenge my body to the utmost pretzel postures! Vinay ‘read’ me in a minute. We sat down and he talked to me about the real purpose and meaning of yoga. We looked at old Sanskrit yoga books. Vinay taught me to breath. His warm presence made me feel welcome right away. Vinay is fully present. Vinay is very knowledgeable, he lives yoga. His authentic smile, care, and devotion to give me the best teachings have given me not only yoga knowledge but life tools and awareness. I highly recommend Vinay to you. If I had to choose, I would choose him again without hesitation. He is gifted for happiness and I think he is simply an incredible human being. he saw the light in me and brought clarity to my life. I now cannot live without yoga. I will go back to India just to practice with him. I haven’t lost touch with him since I’m back, he inquires about how my practice has evolved, chat about our families, and life challenges."

    "Greatful is the best way to express my experience at Jeevmoksha Yoga Gurukul. What a great opportunity to get to study yoga in Rishikesh and specifically at Jeevmoksha. The class size allowed each of us to work on some of our own interests and difficulties. Also small class size allowed each of to teach a full 90 minute class as well as micro lessons. You think you know what you’re going to say and do, but its more challenging than it seems. We had the opportunity to get to know the teachers and learn about modern Indian culture in addition to studying the historic. It gave us a chance to live a simple yogic lifestyle with good food and time for reflection. Even though it was a quiet life, it seems something exciting happens everyday. The monkeys provided entertainment by interrupting our asana class, stealing my breakfast one morning and using my fresh laundry as a washcloth. Another, sitting in lecture and seeing a baby monkey peeking in, is one of the sights i won’t forget. Visiting temples where Hare Krishna Hare Rama has been chanted continuously for decades gives a new insight into the meaning of devotion. Asana pracitce on the Ganga beach was a beautiful setting. All in all a month at Jeevmoksha Yoga Gurukul was a magical part of the journey that is yoga. Namaste"

    "It’s so peaceful here, I feel blessed to be in nature. When I walk up the stairs to the yoga studio before morning practice, the view takes my breath away. I like to meditate on the sounds the birds make. I’m really learning something of the way my mind is - sometimes it’s all over the place. With no TV, radio, work, or other distractions, and all that practice, I get to see all the crazy thoughts I have, all the mental projections. And very occasional micro-glimpses of stillness. I guess the first thing is awareness. I don’t have to make any decisions, don’t have to work, don’t have to decide what to eat. All I have to do is turn up for practice and practice with awareness. Everything else is taken care of. No distractions. It feels far away from the real world. Maybe I don’t want to be in the real world?"

    "Trying to write yoga teacher training reviews, I would like to say that Jeevmoksha is more then postures, it’s about the true meaning of yoga. No matter where you are in your journey, this will give you a foundation in the deep roots of yoga. The possibilities are endless, are you ready to learn? If all you are looking for is fashion - either look elsewhere or come here and change your mind. This is not just a place to burn incense, talk about healing chakras, and compare notes on how The Secret is your favorite book. This is deep yogic psychology, philosophy, history, and practice."

    "Mr. Vinay, your teacher and guide, will take you the through profound personal experience through the practice of ancient Sanskrit texts and wisdom and teach you practical skills that you can take away not only for yourself, but to expand the consciousness of your future students. I will not say the training will change your life - as life is cyclical - rather it will fundamentally change how you view and deal with life on daily basis."

  • Review by Maria Rosario Spano from Switzerland

    "Vinay is a very experienced yoga teacher and can really let you feel the true meaning of the yoga practice. He has a big spiritual knowing, he is rooted in the ancient tradition but he lives in the modern world, so he can easily be understood by western people. We especially loved his social and environmental sensibility which is also rooted in a yogic point of view."

    "Our experience with him has been very stimulating for our individual practice and also for our yoga classes. We can say that he has permitted us to go deeply and forward in all practices we did know and introduced on some others we didn’t know with a lot of skill and about all aspects: practical, anatomic, physiologic, and philosophical. At the end of our two weeks intensive stage we would just plan the come back. We also found in Vinay a friendly, positive, and generous person, we just hope he can continue to flourish and diffuse yoga to motivated people."

    "The yoga intensive course at Jeevmoksha has been life changing for me. Vinay is a very inspirational teacher. He has a good sense for the group dynamics and everybody’s individual needs. I like it that he is true to the roots of yoga and that he is very thorough in his lessons. Step by step he is adding something when the group is ready to go the next level. In that way it is not just 4 great weeks but something that is more profound. I still feel very connected to Jeevmoksha and Vinay and I am very grateful for the time I spend with him. In my practice here back in Holland I can connect to Vinays teachings; in the asana’s, the pranayama and during the mantras I am chanting. And that is exactly the intention of Vinay; to support people in the realization of themselves. A caring, inspiring, warmhearted guru!"

    "I'm practicing yoga for a few years now. And I learned about Hinduism in university. I went to India to deepen my knowledge about yoga and to experience what it really is about. The teacher training at jeevmoksha was an experience I can carry along on my path. The combination of practice and lecture/study worked very well for me. Such an intense experience to learn yoga from teachers who grew up with this. Even if your ambition is not to be a yoga teacher I can really recommend this program and place."

    "Studying with Vinay at Jeevmoksha Yoga Gurukul was a life enhancing experience for me. Vinay is a teacher with a lineage that allows students to tap into an authentic, intense and in-depth yoga training. The course isnt a production line classes are small enough so that students receive teaching that is tailored to their individual needs. I made friendships with other students that I still cherish. And the setting is perfect. It was so good, I went back. Highly recommended."

    "My 200 hour teacher training at Jeevmoksha was a profoundly transformative experience. Vinay, the main facilitator, is extremely knowledgeable, and was always respectful, thoughtful and available to dig deeper into my areas of interest. Ashish, as asanas teacher, had always a nice energy. He is really skilled physically, and really good at transferring his knowledge. The course was comprehensive of yoga theory as well as philosophy and anatomy. It connected really thoroughly the traditional aspects to the more scientific ones. The practice included asanas, pranayamas, shatkarmas, meditation and chanting. All people involved in the course, from the teachers to the cooks, were extremely sincere, caring and loving. They helped me found my "home", and created the right circumstances for me to start a wonderful spiritual journey. Once back in the West, I started teaching: I still have to learn a lot, but the course gave me a strong base to support people on the start of their self-discovery process."

    "It was my biggest desire to have a yoga course with highly educated teachers with lots of knowledge and in very natural place to receive the best of it. So I went to Rishikesh(India) and spend few weeks with Jeevmoksha Yoga Centre, and I found it was the right place what I was looking for. Acharya Vinay is a great teacher with tons of knowledge. His sessions are full of energy, he not only focuses on physical level but also on a mental level. One can surely feel a positive vibration during his sessions. Personally I like his simplicity and the way of life he follow. Another good thing is Jeevmoksha Yoga Center is situated in so beautiful place with the view of mountain and forest with holy river Ganga. However I found my duration was not enough to receive the maximum benefits. Therefor I decided to go again, and finally with blessing of God I received the opportunity to join again Jeevmoksha this month, and I am very happy to do that."

    "We can know yoga very well and it is philosophy but not be able to teach. We can know very well how to teach but have no knowledge about yoga. With Achharya Vinay and his school Jeevmoksha, I found everything I was looking for. He has the perfect knowledge about the spirit and the body as the patience and passion for teaching which he can transmit very well. I also had a beautiful and peaceful place to stay, right in front of the mystical stream and mountains of Rishikesh where I now felt like at home and enjoy every moments."
