My daughter and I attended the March RYS 200 yoga teacher training course at Kailash Tribal School, taught by Yogi Sivadas. I had researched probably at least 50 schools throughout India and intuitively decided to attend Kailash Tribal School. It was absolutely 100% the best decision I could have made. It not only fulfilled my expectations, it surpassed them. Yogi Sivadas managed to combine his vast experience and knowledge with a practical approach that is easy to incorporate in one’s life. I went there with some chronic health issues, but despite the rigorous asana practice – with Sividas’s knowledge – I actually strengthened my body, so that by the time of graduation I felt stronger than I had in years. Now as I begin teaching on my own, I realize what a strong foundation he gave us, along with so much valuable information that we can share with others. Yes, Yogi Sivadas was a great teacher for us, but also just a genuinely good person, with so much positive energy. We stayed at his Yogi Cottages, which we highly recommend – not only was it clean and quiet and had a beautiful view from the balcony, it so helped to be so close to the Yoga Hall (in the same complex). We both just highly recommend all aspects of Yogi Sividas’s Yoga Teacher Training program. Marlena (Yogini Asha) and Rozzi (Yogini Leela) email@example.com |

I just finished my 200 hours in Dec 2012 with Yogi Sivadas, it had been an amazing experience every day something new unfolds from the training in all the aspects physical, mental and spiritual, this course gives you tools for your day to day life, and really create a deep awareness of our true purpose in this human birth, Yogi Sivadas provide you with perfect routes to develop your own practice and instinctive ways to develop your Yogic Practice for a life Time... The surroundings support me in the most divine way this course, the weather and accommodations couldn\'t be better!!! I am filled with gratitude. Namaste Marcella Reyes Marcellareyes33@gmail.com |
Yogi Sivadas encourages his students to recognize their own limits at the intelligent edge of ego, and teaches a gentle practice that is suffused with compassion and which encourages the practitioner to invoke the strong determination necessary to complete such an intensive course while at the same time always respecting physical limitations. It was the best decision to come back after my TTC to learn more and again to enjoy the good energies of the Kailash Tribal School. The clean rooms with kitchen are an ideal place to study and recover. The transformation that happened during my ATTC was as well physical, mental and spiritual. It is not just a series of yoga classes or a set of yoga teacher instructions; its a complete physical, philosophical and spiritual guide to life. Yogi Sivadas encourages his students to recognize their own limits at the intelligent edge of ego and teaches a gentle practice which encourages the practitioner to invoke the strong determination necessary to complete such an intensive course while at the same time always respecting physical limitations. You will return with an authentic and thorough understanding of yoga, with the wisdom to apply the teachings in your own life and you will have all the tools necessary to teach others. It has been a gift to be surrounded by the stunning Himalayan Mountains, by an incredible group of students and of course to be led by our wonderful teacher Yogi Sivadas. I am excited to bring all that knowledge I have gained and the love and light from India to my students and I recommend this training for any self-motivated practitioner who is interested in all the eight limbs of yoga, not just asana practice.

Those who have always been intrigued about the education of the body and the mind, Yogi Shivadas’s authentic Yoga teachings awaken you to new dimensions of a BodyMindEnergy World.
Yogi Shivadas puts a strong focus on the aspects of anatomy and physiology by explaining meticulously the structures and functions of each system of the body. This helps the student to journey through the depths of self awareness and self discovery of the body and mind during their yoga practice and daily activities.
He coaches you through a sensible and healthy lifestyle, introducing you to the old ancestral customs of India, teaching you how to commune and connect to the natural cycles of life while fuzing it with today’s modern ways of the living.
Yogi Shivadas emanates vibrant energy and openly shares his fascinating knowledge about every aspect of life.
He has created a beautiful sacred space where students practice a relaxing gentle Ashtanga Program in the morning and a light Hatha Program in the late afternoon. Through a gentle approach, the Yoga Program allows students to slowly discover their own rhythm of breath, pace of movement and capacity of strength and flexibility.
The Yogi Cottage is situated on Baghsu road. It is a very convenient location where everything from local food markets, laundry facilities, restaurants and medical shops are within a 5 minute walk. Most rooms have a balcony with a gorgeous view of the Himalayan mountains.
My accommodation did not come with a kitchen but I still managed to find a few healthy restaurants within the area. One nearby restaurant I highly recommend is Llamo’s, offering vegetarian and nutritional options. I also suggest buying some fruits from the markets (the papayas and pomegranates were my favorite!). I enjoyed them as an early breakfast before I started the 7 a.m. lecture class or had them later as a light dinner.
To fully appreciate the program, it is best to keep an open mind and to fully engage in the materials and exercises that the course offers. By staying focused within the course, the students can transcend through many negative toxic behaviors and can naturally heal themselves psychologically and physically. The end results of the course will truly reflect the commitment and devotion that was put towards the readings and practices.
I came to India to study under the Yoga Tribal School to received my 500 hrs Certificate with Yoga Alliance along with a Reiki Masters Degree. I am very happy to have completed the 500 hrs Program here as it gave me the necessary time to fully grasp the discipline of the Yoga lifestyle. I cannot be more grateful and thankful to have been given this life-changing experience. Yogi Shivadas nurtured me through a path of a natural and greater fulfillment of life. I am now leaving India with a feeling of wholesome balance, inner peace, courage and aliveness! I am eager to integrate and share this new and fascinating knowledge with my community back in Canada.

"Be creative! Don't be worried of what you are doing. One has to do many things, but do everything creatively with devotion! Then your work becomes worship. Then whatsoever you do is an offering at the altar" - Osho.
That is about Sivadas, a great techer from whom I had a pleasire to study! To study not only yoga and philosophy, but to study life to be more presice - to feel life and myself being in-one with the nature. I remember the phrase that became a guide for me on my way: "life is a journey, but it's not the final point which is important, it's the journey itself". The teacher training course gave me a lot, as much as I could and wanted to get, opening hidden sides and shining new light on things! Sivadas is like a book that you read and re-read again and every time find lots of new and interesting things! Great experience and huge source of inspiration - this is what I brougt back with me! I trully enjoyed every moment of practical and theoretical classes, chanting and meditetion! I also took courses of auyrvedic massage and soundhealing the practical knowledge of which I use now in my daily life! Apart from the positive physical and spiritual changes that the course gave me, I can say simply that my life became lighter and more enjoyable! And this I feel now after 2 month I'm back to Sweden! It's a constant work on yourself in living a life with no egoism, enjoying being "here and now", being grateful for what you have! The most important thing I got from this course is the direction! Now I know where I am going and enjoy every moment of my life-journey!

It's hard to put into words my experience at the Kailash Tribal Yoga School. I didn’t expect the transformation that happened during my yoga teacher training program. It was both, physical, mental and spiritual. Yogi Sivadas provided the most informative, inspiring and fun environment that allowed all of the students to work and live to their highest potential. Yogi Sivadas encourages his students to recognize their own limits at the intelligent edge of ego, and teaches a gentle practice that is suffused with compassion and which encourages the practitioner to invoke the strong determination necessary to complete such an intensive course while at the same time always respecting physical limitations. I learned a lot about my own limits, and i developed a consciousness about the universe and about myself. I recommend this training for any self-motivated practitioner who is interested in all the 8 limbs of yoga, not just asana practice. The ayurvedic massages helped even more to improve my body health. The Reiki Course and Sound Healing Course intensified the yoga teacher treaining since all is connected. It's been a gift to be surrounded by the mountains and eagles flying in front of the room and of course to be led by a wonderful teacher, Yogi Sivadas. I am so excited to bring all that I've learned and the love and light from India back to my students. In gratitude and love,

I Finished My 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course and Ayurvedic Kundalini Yoga Massage course, at Kalaish Tribal school with Yogi Shivadas in the Himalayas. It was a magical and unforgettable experience. I learned a lot and I developed a new knowledge and consciousness about myself and the whole universe. I become unified with the whole world, beyond divisions!!! This yoga teacher training course is very deep and the personal approach of Yogi Shivadas can bring Yoga to the students beyond the asanans. Because Yoga is not just fitness or competitive practice of some sport ... It's a way of living... Living unified and fully in the presence with the whole universe. We learned about Philosophy, History and psychology for bringing better Yoga Teaching for this world, to unify us and the whole Universe!
This yoga teacher training course and my meeting with Yogi Shivadas was an important step in my life. Now, I don't want and I can't Go back, look back... It's to late... If you are ready to accept a new visions and certain deeper realities of yourself, you will open and expand your consciousness and awareness in Kailash Tribal School...After that, you can't do like you don't knew about yourself, life and health with the wisdom you gained with Yogi Shivadas. After this course, you can not forget that we must live with mindfulness, but the most important for me is try to maintain my knowledge, health and peaceful state of mind I gained here and being better human being and sharing my wisdom of yogic living with others.!!!
Thank for everything!!!
With truthfulness, Tamara xxx

My time in India is near over as I begin my 12 hours bus journey back to Dehli this afternoon. I arrived to Mcloud Ganj a little over a month ago on a yoga teacher training.
I came to this program with out expectations, except to get better at the practice, how little I knew that I had signed up for school of life. What I learned in one month is only the beginning to deeper self awareness. For now, body and mind is charged and ready for real life discoveries and challenges. I plan to teach yoga to friends and family, and to do Reiki or sound healing per your request.
Along with the certificates, I was given a spiritual name “Yogini Usha” meaning: “morning, dawn, sunrise”, on this note, I will wake up each morning with deeper sense of self awareness and consciousness. Yogi Shivadas thank you for everything you taught me, I will miss your stories.

I finished my 500 hour yoga teacher training with Shivadas. And it has been such an intense and meaningful time for me. I am also very happy that I chose to do the 5oo hours , because it gave me a bit more time to settle in the school, learn more and to improve my asanas more. I would definitely advise anybody, who has the time, to do a longer course with Shivadas. You will not regret it!
Also the setting of the school is really beautiful and still in the center of the town, where you can find all kinds of good restaurants and shops. I loved my room that I had rented in the school too, very convenient and very bright…It became a real home. And that is important for me, after travelling for so long.
I learned much from Shivadas’ approach to yoga; which is adjusted to the modern body and also to learn to be kind and soft to yourself. (That was a good lesson for me …;-0 ).
Now I have more than enough knowledge and selfconfidense to teach myself. I am now a yoga teacher in Cambodia.
Thank you Shivadas, for being such a great teacher. I loved how you were always open for all kinds of questions and that you didn’t keep any taboo!
I have become more grounded, more balanced and so more happy! And that is, what is yoga about!!
If you have any questions about the course, please contact me by email. Or if you are travelling through Cambodia and want to do some yoga with me…
My name is An AYTTC 500
"I just returned from the Kailash Tribal
School and I really enjoyed it. The teacher has decades of experience
and has a balanced and moderate approach to yoga. He won't push you
beyond your limits or into any positions you aren't ready for. I
especially loved that aspect of it because I think that yoga is all
about breath, moving at your own pace and finding a good center. Some
yoga videos I've done move so quickly and just seem "too fast." He'll
hold downward dog for several breaths and you'll quickly work up a
I feel like I gained so much in the course. We spent 4 hours a day
doing yoga. We had 2 hours of Ashtanga in the morning and 2 hours of
Hatha in the afternoon. We also spent an hour a day learning about
cleanses, breathing, meditation and chanting. Then, another 2 hours of
lecture in the afternoon. It's a pretty intensive course, but it is a
great introduction to teaching yoga. I know people who did the 500
hours and their knowledge is about double and a half mine (literally
because that's how much more they do!).
I'd say I'm glad I didn't do the 500 hours there. I think for me it
will be better to break it up. I'm thinking I might get my next 300
hours later after I've processed what I learned. It definitely depends
on what you're looking for. If you want to teach professionally, I'd recommend
500 hours and it's probably easier and more cost-effective to do it
all at once. I
don't actually feel confident enough to teach alone and independently
at this point. I'd want much more practice - probably 300 hours worth!
I feel ready to teach family and friends and perhaps understudy with
an experienced teacher, but I think 200 should be considered
entry-level/intern level. There is soooo much involved in the world of
yoga and ayurveda. You could literally study it for years. And, it
also depends on how much you already know about yoga. If you are
experienced, you'll be able to start studying how to teach it faster.
I am not as experienced, so I spent the first two weeks learning how
to do the postures properly.
The on-site housing is fantastic. We had a kitchen and wonderful porch
with a stunning view of the valley/city. The rooms are clean and
bright and all the cooking/bathroom supplies are provided. The town
itself is tourist friendly with lots of places to eat vegetarian food
and hike. Although, I'd recommend turning inward for the experience.
There were some days I never left our little yogi cottage area because
the yoga room was just upstairs. It feels like a little haven compared
with all the shops and tuk-tuks and excitement of the streets, which
are all the things that a tourist in India loves, but are also things
that can distract you from your yogic bliss.
I think the most important aspect of the course is that everyone
internalizes yoga differently. And, this is especially important when
teaching. What is helpful for one person, may not be helpful for
another. And also, just because you enjoy a certain position or can
move your body one way, it doesn't mean that it is the best way to
teach it. Our class was in constant dialogue about what worked for us,
why it was helpful or why it was not. I loved hearing about how yoga
works for other people. I also loved the focus on yoga for your dosha
(element). Some people need vigorous yoga, others need slow yoga,
depending on their constitution. And, they don't always crave the kind
of yoga they need. So, that is a very interesting topic. Yoga in the
west is quite different than yoga in the east and I think that's the
benefit to learning yoga in India itself. You will connect with yoga
in a way that is closer to how it originally evolved before it left
the east and traveled to the west and was digested and expressed with
a western flare. I think it is always better to learn from a different
perspective so that your own becomes stronger.
Oh, you mentioned teaching for kids. He does cover teaching for kids a
bit. I was also interested in that topic, so we discussed for a day or
two. I think if you're interested specifically in children, you should
let him know and he could probably give you more information. Although
I think the best approach is to take the information he provides and
then practice and gain experience later through attending and teaching
classes. Teaching yoga is like teaching anything. You learn the
principles and then when you step into the classroom, you begin to
apply them, but not usually before or maybe just in your head!
Let me know if you have any other questions. I'm happy to help. If you
do decide to go, say hi to yoga shividas from me. I am so glad I
attended his course. I think it will impact my life positively for
years to come. He has helped me to view my life through a more
balanced lens and also showed me how to think critically about the
kind of yoga that I practice and why."
