Prashmana Yoga School's Reviews
I have done my 200 hours TTC followed by 300 hrs with Himanshu as my Anatomy teacher. While practicing n learning yoga showed me a new perception of what is real,what is necessary. He helped me find the very basic, very foundational way of learning it all. His teaching simplified the whole learning process to me. I know now which muscle group I am exactly working on and how to do adjustments to get the most of every asana practice. Its funny but take it from a girl who had a little to no knowledge of Biology+physiology. Had no interest in those subject in school. Himanshu will break down each and every aspect of your learning and I actually never felt I was a poor student around him. I won’t call him a guru because I have known him learning about every student of his and always helping them out in 1 or the other aspect. It has been an amazing experience and I am definitely looking forward to learning more from him. Ps. Don’t crack jokes with him, he never stops laughing (out loud😆)!!!! Impossible to not laugh with him :)! PPS. look at him go with his Human props. 😂never a dull moment in class with him even after 2 straight hrs. of lectures.
Doing my 200hrs of yoga teacher training at Prashmana School with Madalina and Himanshu was very special. I really enjoyed not only the professionally organized training, but also the warm, caring, fun and easygoing atmosphere they created throughout the course. I am so grateful to Madalina and Himanshu for this training and for doing it in Rishikesh (which I came to love so so much!) While I know Madalina from the beautiful classes she creates at her boutique yoga studio in Vienna and her amazing retreats, I met Himanshu at the training. The way he teaches yoga was a whole different level for me and unlike anything I have done in the past (in trendy yoga studios and five-star hotels in Dubai or pristine beaches in Massachusetts.) I wish for those reading this to experience Himanshu’s classes first hand, but if I were do describe them I would say - traditional, real, otherworldly. Traditional as in very grounded in authentic yoga and it’s roots; real because the asana practice he teaches requires strength and is very effective (toning and stretching!) and otherworldly refers to that inexplicable talent, when someone is THAT good at what they do. Like many others in our course, I felt very lucky to be taught by Himanshu: I am grateful for his gentle care, attention and support, positive vibes and encouragement, as well as a very professional and disciplined attitude. I would also like to note our excellent guest teachers, especially Rohit for meditation classes and the guest expert for the Ayurveda workshop. And, last but not least, the food was as excellent as the course!
I would like to wholeheartedly recommend Prashmana Yoga School to all those who embarked on the path of yoga and mindful living. I was participating in 200 hours teacher trainings organized by Prashmana Yoga in Rishikesh in August 2022 and I can say that this experience became invaluable for me. First of all, I would like to note the professionalism of the teachers, their excellent education and individual approach to each student. As part of the learning process, the human factor always plays a very important role. The teachers of Prashmana Yoga do everything so that every class goes smoothly and for the benefit of each student. Also, one cannot fail to note the excellent organization of the schedule and the inclusion of wonderful excursions and activities that will be remembered for a lifetime. If you participate in school activities such as retreats and yoga teachers trainings, you can be sure of quality food, sincere responsiveness in case of questions and a high level of competence. Thank you Madalina and Himanshu for such a wonderful experience!!! Looking forward to attending more event organized by You!
Prashmana yoga School is better known for its well qualified Teachers Himanshu and Neha both of them are dignified and thorough professional yoga teachers. They work on your short comings improve you in every aspect of life be it yoga on mat and yoga outside. The food here taste awesome and very delicious I have done few retreats and small trainings before but in most of the schools we used to get sick either with funny stomach or vomiting but here none of us fell sick and Stay here was very comfortable and luxurious no complaints. Multiple excursions like visit to holy temples keertans Ganga Aarti rafting were highlights of a day-off. Our invited guest teachers for Ayurveda Kanan was fabulous and also the teacher Georgia for her Kundlini special session was equally wonderful. Words fail me to describe how grateful I am to become a part of Prashmana yoga family. I am grateful to Prashmana yoga teachers to make my life more meaningful after doing this course I feel that life is beautiful and every moment is the moment of celebration.
Stumbled upon this school out of the thousands YTT’s available in the area. This was more than just a school to me, they became family. I did my Kundalini YTT, with Himanshu and Georgia. Both have expansive knowledge and experience couldn’t have done it with anyone else. To top that, surprise trips were made to waterfalls, Ganga Aarti, swimming at the Ganges and visit to a sacred meditation cave. The accomodation and 3x daily homemade indian food was one of the highlights. Prashmana School went above and beyond expectations and I couldn’t be more grateful. Namaste
