Appreciating his candor and discipline

Brooke and I came to McLeod Ganj in the Fall of 2009. After meeting with 3 Yoga teachers and speaking with many students in the area, we were happy to begin our Yoga Teacher Training retreat with Yogi Sivadas. I remember appreciating his candor and disciplined approach immediately. I was also impressed with his personality and realistic, gradual curriculum. “No over pushing!” We enjoyed the consistency of practice and the variety of subject areas, especially the chanting and singing, memorization of Sutras, and the two Asana practices each day. I think my mind and body have been changed for the better based on this practice, but as Sivadas points out the practice of Yoga is always ongoing. Overall I would say this experience has opened me to a world of experience and consideration that had been somewhat veiled before. During our month of practice, we also had Tuesdays free to explore the Himalayan Foothills and to enjoy the different cultures of Northern India. Lastly, the Yogi Cottages are a quiet, comfortable place to stay. The good atmosphere made it easy for us to focus on the Yoga practice, but we were always able to visit the town when we wanted. It was also great to have dozens of Golden Eagles soaring above our back balcony almost every day! Namaste, ISA Certified Arborist RM 7405A (303)906-8290
