"Can't Wait To Go Back"

"Chandra Yoga International changes my perception about Yoga. I came to the course with the thought of learning “a gentle balancing exercise called yoga.” But now I open my eyes with a new knowledge and deep understanding of what yoga means. It’s a trip, an adventure to come back to your home, your inner-self. Thank you, Chandra Yoga to bring me home. Much love and see you back soon.”

"Great Experience at Chandra Yoga International!!"

"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 friends helped me very much. There are more important things that language. We all learned about yoga every day together. Yoga connected us. Now I live with yoga. Yoga is life. I think everything is yoga. This life taught me, yoga can connect the people. Thank you so much!”

"YTTC Feb, 2016"

"I personally loved the structure of the program because I was immersed in the training from 6 am till 6:30 pm. Being in a group of like-minded individuals living with one another is an amazing experience and teaches you so much about yourself on another level than going to a weekend workshop or monthly program. The staff knowledge and experience was beyond my expectations and they were extremely genuine in their concern for your learning. Every aspect and every moment of that experience changed my connection to yoga at a high frequency, I am so grateful.The immersion training was perfect for me, the instructors were amazing and the environment unforgettable. I felt safe and I found traditional yoga again. Years of classes and workshops, Chandra Yoga cut through the layers of fashionable yoga and presents many forms of yoga in an unpretentious way.”

"Yoga Teacher Training Course"

"Coming to Chandra Yoga International I began my journey new to the yoga world and left a confident yoga teacher. The teachers at the school are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It is truly a life-changing experience. You get more out of a teacher's training than just yoga, it has brought together people from various parts of the world and they become family."

"really good yoga retreat holiday in Rishikesh"

"I came to Chandra yoga school in May 2015 and stayed almost until the end of July 2015. It was truly unforgettable and life-changing time. I came to learn yoga and complete 300 hours teacher training course and I left being a confident and professional teacher with two months experience practicing yoga and teaching every day. This school has a unique quality: it can bring together truly amazing and wonderful people that will change your life and become your good friends. I highly recommend this school for yoga and meditation course, as well as Dr. Sushil a Meditation, Pranayama, and yoga philosophy professional."

"It was a privilege to attend"

"Chandra Yoga International is definitely a place to learn the yoga from the roots. I have done my 200 hrs and 300 hrs from there and it was a great experience of my life. It’s easier to feel to feel overwhelmed in India but their entire team is so supportive and friendly to make you feel more than at home. My first visit was in June 2012 (200hrs) in Dharamshala, and the Second visit was Sep 2012 (Internship), the Third visit was in Aug 2013 (300hr) after that i found no reason to leave Chandra Yoga International I got my on Job training with Dr. Sushil for 7 months teaching pranayama and philosophy. My recent visit was in Feb 2015. I spent a month on working on our future project and advance study on chakras with Dr. Sushil. Yoga was the cultural thing where I grew up but I got to learn the fundamentals of it with Dr. Sushil’s sacred knowledge of yoga. He started his yoga studies from his childhood till his Master and Ph.D. from pure Yogic environmental school, university, and ashrams.I presently live in Canada running my own company for yoga events my website is themountainmonk.ca. I definitely recommend this yoga school to begin your spiritual journey of life. May God keep me connected with Chandra Yoga"

"Best experience of my life"

"My experience was transformed internally and spirituality made me stronger more conscious and lost many of my past fears. It's a wonderful course with fabulous teachers. A great program for learning. Food is fabulously made by the always smiling cook (Panwar Ji) that cater to whatever you want and need. It became my home for 4 weeks but will always stay in my heart forever I felt reborn."

“Went for the yoga left with self-understanding...”

"At Chandra Yoga, I received traditional Indian philosophy-based education – kriyas, mantras, the history of yoga, and more. It was a great mix of Hatha Yoga at the first part, Vinyasa Yoga at the second and a lot of dedicated teacher training over the last two parts. Aside from practical classes, there was a lot of Theorie such as anatomy, alignment, philosophy and teaching skills. We also practiced different styles of Meditation, Mudras, Bandas and Pranayama. The opportunity to learn and practice in the Himalayas is extraordinary."

“Outstanding 200h Teacher Training Class”

"I WOULD NOT HAVE REALIZED THAT THE PRACTICE OF YOGA IS NOT JUST EXERCISE AS I DID BEFORE, BUT APPRECIATED THE SPIRITUAL/MENTAL/PHYSIOLOGICAL/STRENGTHENING AND ENDURANCE ASPECTS OF THIS COURSE. THIS WAS TRULY LIFE CHANGING IN THAT I HAVE NOT ONLY HELPED MYSELF BUT CAN ADDRESS ISSUES RELATED TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS. THIS WAS MOST IMPORTANT FOR ME IN THIS VENTURE. I FEEL THAT EACH DAY I READ THE MATERIALS PROVIDED AND PRACTICE YOGA, I REALIZE HOW CERTAIN THINGS MAKE MORE SENSE TO ME NOW MORE SO THAN BEFORE. TEACHERS STUCK TO THE SCHEDULES EACH DAY, BUT THEY WERE SURE TO MAKE THE STUDENT FEEL CONFIDENT AND MOREOVER WE LEARNED TO WORK AS A TEAM. I HAVE MADE LIFETIME FRIENDSHIPS WITH STUDENTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. THE SCHOOL IS OPEN TO ANY FOLLOW-UP CONCERNS WHICH IS MOST IMPORTANT TO ME. I LEARNED MANY TECHNIQUES, UNIQUE TO ME…TEACHERS SPENT TIME WITH ME OUTSIDE OF SCHEDULED CLASSES THAT HAS IMPROVED MY OWN HEALTH ISSUES TO ENSURE MY NEEDS WERE MET. I WAS AMAZED AT MY OWN PHYSICAL TRANSFORMATION AS WELL AS ONE OLDER STUDENT AFTER JUST ONE WEEK. AS AN OLDER STUDENT (WAY BEYOND 50) IT WAS DIFFICULT TO SECURE A SPOT AT OTHER SCHOOL. CHANDRA YOGA INTERNATIONAL DID NOT TREAT ME AS AN OLD PERSON MAKING MY EXPERIENCE AS RICH AS ANY OTHER STUDENT. THEY WENT BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY ON DAYS WHEN MY KNEE WAS NOT IN SHAPE. WITH THE INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION AND CARE, I, AS MUCH AS EVERYONE ELSE, WAS SURPRISED AT THE LEVEL I WAS ABLE TO PERFORM THE REQUIRED ASANAS BY THE END OF THE COURSE. I PARTICULARLY LIKE BEING TESTED AND GETTING FEEDBACK TO UNDERSTAND THINGS MORE CLEARLY AND FULLY."

“Beautiful practice, beautiful people”

"My experience at Chandra school was better than I expected. It was wonderful times. All classes, all teachers, I really loved it! I could improve many yoga skills and learn about, not just yoga, but mental and about myself also. I hope to come back again to the 300 RYS course and meet all Chandra school staff, teachers, and classmates! Thanks to all teachers, staff, classmates, and special thanks to Dr. Sushil. Namaste."

“Very Good place to practice yoga for all levels”

"When I decided to do the Teacher Training Course, I was researching a lot online until I chose Chandra Yoga School, and I am very happy with my decision. The email communication before the course with Dr. Sushil and his team was great from the beginning- fast and helpful. I ordered a taxi from the airport on my first day through Dr. Sushil. My flight was delayed more than an hour but the taxi driver with a sign with my name on it was still waiting for me. So there was no problem to arrive on the first day (apart from the Indian traffic!) And this is where my Indian Yogi journey started. The accommodation and food were excellent. The rooms were a big bed, bathroom, and balcony with a beautiful view. The food was vegetarian which I really enjoyed. All month was so busy so those four weeks went so fast! I teach yoga on a cruise ship (Pathway to Yoga) but I was never able to build my own sequence. And I’ve learned so much in Chandra Yoga School. The teachers were wonderful and willing to help in any situation. We started every day with a meditation class with Dr. Sushil and it was a very new experience for me. Dr. Sushil is an excellent teacher and yogi and by introducing me to plenty of great techniques to achieve meditation, I was actually able to teach a meditation class in the last week of the course an amazing feeling. Asana classes were in so many variations that apart from Hatha and Ashtanga we got the opportunity to practice also AcroYoga, Partner yoga, Yin yoga, and much more. Anatomy classes were very interesting and helped me to understand the poses in depth which helps with the correct adjustment in class. Everyone was so lovely with an open mind and heart. We even spent our days altogether. First day off we were blessed enough to get the opportunity to be a part of the 80th birthday celebration of H.H. the Dalai Lama with a presence of H.H. in his temple (500 meters from the school). A very powerful experience. The next day off we had planned a hike, and the place where the teachers took us was breathtaking. The hike up to the hill (3000 meters above sea level) was very challenging but definitely worth it. By the way, Dr. Sushil is so also much fun! I loved his philosophy classes. The practicums we did in the last week of the course were not stressful and again the teachers helped us anytime we needed them too. I have great memories from my one month in India. I met very special and lovely people and learned so much. I’m ready to go back on the cruise ship, build my own class and teach not only with my body but also with my heart.The course helped me to improve my skills but it was also very important for my personal and spiritual growth. I understand life much better than ever and I believe understanding is the key. I’ll definitely come back to India again and hopefully, meditate with Dr. Sushil and his team in his ashram one day. Namaste."

“Love it!! Simply the best.”

"Completed my 200-HR RYT last November 2014 in Rishikesh. I came into the training with roughly a year of practice and this was the right program to deepen my understanding of yoga. I had a phenomenal time and will forever cherish the moments shared with my teachers (Sushil-ji & Nino-ji) and classmates. Our class was just the right size (10-11 pax), enough for us to get to know each other and bond for over a month. It was both exciting & challenging learning the Shatkarma practices, I esp. like the shankhaprakshalana and I felt the difference in my body after. The school served yummy vegetarian dishes all throughout. Shout out to the incredible cook Mohan! If you are looking for snack treats, the organic stores are just walking distance. The Philosophy classes changed the way I looked at yoga (in a good way). Dr. Sushil explained the texts in a way that is accessible to the students e.g. citing examples, scenarios. It was relatable for a beginner like me. Knowledge, practice, and experience- are my take away from Sushil Ji's classes. Thank you! Nino-ji is one rare soul! She’s awesome and was a key figure in our YTT. Her passion and dedication to the practice are really admirable and it rubs off on you. I learned so much from her, not only with Anatomy (which is her forte’) but in life and the practice in general. THANK YOU Nino-ji!!Overall I would recommend Chandra to anyone looking to deepen their yoga practice beyond the physical asanas. Rishikesh is the perfect place to start, you are surrounded by SO much yoga and the place has that vibe that expands your consciousness. Go have a dip in the Ganga! That was one memorable experience! I will definitely come back! All the best to the Chandra Team, thank you very much for sharing your knowledge and practice. Namaste!"
