Reviews of Life Transforming Yoga Retreat in Rishikesh India

My journey and experience at Yoga Essence for Yoga Retreat was wonderful and life transformational. The group of teachers of the course are amazing. Under their guidance, I learnt many asanas and their modifications with proper alignment and adjustment so that I could able to maintain those asanas easily without further complications. The course was eye opening for me regarding the importance of Pranayama and Meditation to deal with difficult situation of life, control emotions and how to eradicate deep root traumas and emotional issues. Samarth sir guided us step by step methodology of meditation and pranayama with their application into our day to day life. He constantly hammer on the application dimension of yoga not only for body but for mind, heart and consciousness which is lacking with most of the yoga teachers and yoga institutes. I am really fortunate to find him and his guidance through the retreat. Many many thanks to whole team and Yoga Essence.
