Testimonials

{

Rajesh from YogaShastra was one of the main teachers in the Sivananda yoga teacher training I took 5 years ago. Sharing his deep and wide knowledge of yoga, philosophy, traditions and history was both an enjoyable and very important part of the course.

In October 2022 Rajesh organized a yoga retreat to Bali. His knowledge of the island made the trip a wonderful adventure on many levels: apart from the immersion into yoga: asanas, meditation, yoga philosophy, and kirtan/satsang, we also learned about Balinese and hindu traditions, were invited to a traditional balinese home, participated in a festival/parade, visited temples, waterfalls, fully enjoyed the capital of spirituality: Ubud, stayed in gorgeous cottages on a beautiful beach, explored the islands, went snorkelling, learned about farming rice, coffee and tea, enjoyed many exotic foods and made new friends. A perfect holiday I would love to repeat.

Att åka på yoga och ayurveda resa med Rajesh till Kerala är en helt fantastisk möjlighet i att få fördjupa sin yoga

(oavsett liten eller stor erfarenhet) och samtidigt få ta del av allt som Kerala erbjuder på ett väldigt personligt och nära sätt.  Programmet är förutom daglig yoga fyllt med upplevelser av väldigt olika miljöer, allt från landsbygd och stad till ashramliv och avkoppling på stranden. Trots rikt programinnehåll känns det avkopplande och lugnt.

Vi åkte två vuxna och ett barn på 11 år och blev imponerade av hur välarrangerad resan var utifrån både logistik och innehåll och samtidigt med flexibilitet för önskningar. Vi kan verkligen rekommendera andra att göra denna resa och att våga ta med sig barn, för de blir väldigt fint omhändertagna.

Rajesh är uppväxt i Kerala och han är en fantastisk guide som det är en stor förmån att få lära känna. Resan överträffar allt man kan önska, underbar natur, fantastiska möten med människor, kultur och sinnesro i ett underbart hörn av världen långt från alla standardiserade charterresor. Min bästa resa!🙏
