Hi ... A few month back I have attended a few drop in classes there and I really like the way they teach and yes the energy of that place is very good.
I'm so grateful that I found this school. Everybody takes care of you and want that you have a good time. Small groups and the teachers are great! The food ist very delicious! The hotel staff is also very helpful and friendly. And the most beautiful thing is that everyone is on the same level and it is not like in school. It is like family. Everybody share the knowledge and give it to you. Thank you for everything!
Vinyasa Yogashala was recommended to me by a friend and I’m so pleased I decided to go to this school. The teachers are incredibly kind and patient when teaching to ensure you get a full understanding, the yoga classes are dynamic but leave you feeling amazing after and you learn so much during them. The school has a lovely laid back feel and everyone from the manager to the cooks and cleaning staff are welcoming and sociable. And last but not least, the location is wonderful, with beautiful views and close to lots of lovely stores and the river, it’s perfect! Thanks again Vinyasa Yogashala!
Truly was all I could have hoped for out of the experience. The environment, the wonderful teachers, the fellow students, the challenges and the wins have given me memories I won't forget. Vinyasa Yoga Shala has opened my eyes to depth of the yogic practice. Thank you.
For anyone wanting to become a yoga instructor or simply interested in the yogic lifestyle, this is an amazing place to learn and create unforgettable memories. The teachers are super motivated and passionated within their field, each of them with their own loving personality. They'll strive to teach you their experiences, and open your mind to a more peaceful way of living. Yoga is not (only) about the positions and becoming flexible, it's a lifestyle that will make you understand your real self, our body and the unity we are all a part of. Helping you to show gratitude toward the life we are giving. Thank you for an amazing stay, I'll miss you all
