05/08/2018I came for the July 2018 course to Kailash Tribal School and this month is really has changed my life forever. I know it will never be the same after all the knowledge and all practical skills which I got there. Yogi Shivadas is really the best teacher and I’m proud to be his student. I will really recommend this school and course for everyone and I’m absolutely sure you will be satisfied with all the things which you will learn and understand! Yogi Shivadas thank you so much for opening my eyes and mind! And I will miss our lectures, discussions and asanas practice. I was felling great while learning and now I should to bring this feelings, energy and knowledge to the world!
Maria Prople<firstname.lastname@example.org> Russia & UAE.08/02/2018Yogi Sivadas is knowledgeable, caring, and personable. He is accommodating and does whatever he can to make the students feel comfortable. The classes consisted of both philosophy and postures. Each class was engaging and I found myself transforming in body, mind, and spirit. Yoga Teacher Training has changed my life for the better. I feel more grounded and confident. I am grateful to have had this experience and would recommend Kailash Tribal School to anyone who is interested in learning authentic Yoga including the philosophical, physical, and spiritual practices. Jennifer Habel email@example.com USA & China07/26/2018" I came to know about Yogi Sivadas of Kailash School of Yoga from my Girl Friend, she herself is a Yoga Teacher and her teacher has spoken really highly about Yoga SivaDas, which made me very curious.
Before meeting Yogi SivaDas My approach of Yoga was only limited till Body exercise & I was unsure of whether yoga was really something I saw myself pursuing as a career because I felt I was not good enough, but the experience, compassion, patience and dedication he showed me was instrumental in inspiring me and preparing me on my path to becoming a yoga instructor. His approach was very Holistic, he explained every aspects of yoga with a reasoning and history behind it. He also inspired me to leave few bad habits which I had since several years, and which was my weakness and now i am writing this testimonial after 1 month of completion of my course, I can definitely say that I feel Much much better. Can't thank enough to my Friend, Teacher, Mentor and my Guru = Yoga Sivadas.
I feel very lucky to have had learnt from him and cannot recommend him highly enough as a teacher whether it be for Yoga Asanas, Psychology, Anatomy, History.

«I studied yoga teacher training at Kailash early in the season of 2018 and it was in a more quiet time in Mcleodganj which I appreciated. I recommend staying at the facility as this enables the student to focus on the studies instead of spending time for transport and getting disturbed with the busy town. The rooms are nice and clean with a small-equipped kitchen to make your own food (which I prefer).
The training itself it perfect for anyone at any level. Like other schools Kailash don’t get hung up in a certain style but is more universal, which can translate into learning how to establish your personally fitted foundation and functional yoga practice towards a yogic life. On this foundation you can hereafter build and customize your personal need and preferred style of yoga for you future both in private and as a teacher. Instead of narrowing it down to a certain style and thus excluding the diversity of yoga, this training opens up for all styles and nuances of the yogic life. What I also liked very much was the link to Ayurveda and the understanding of the unique individual every person is, opening a whole new world of understanding myself and future students. This will certainly help me as a teacher to meet every student at their premises and what will be beneficial for their life and health.
Also I like that we’re maximum 12 students giving us more teacher time (we were even fewer giving us even MORE time to question and corrections), and practice and getting feedback from drop-in yoga practitioners putting the aspiring teachers to the task and challenge of handling the widespread differences from total beginners to experienced customers. This is very valuable lessons and confidence builders!
Last but not least I appreciate the way Sivadas encourages each and everyone to fit the yoga to their own personal health. Too often I’ve been comparing my flexibility and myself with others instead of working slowly deeper into what my body serves and deserves. Yoga practice is personal, and not for anyone else. This way, as a teacher, you can teach others to practice yoga for themselves and their own health, and not for pictures and numbers of likes on social media. This is so immensely important to emphasize! Listen to your body and its limitations and team up with your body and the reality of your personal health, and the good results will show with time and practice. Yogi Sivadas succeeds in teaching this, and he succeeds in teaching a gentle and including practice where everyone will find their expression, be able to work within their bodily possibilities and limitations and avoid injuries. Turning life to the better.
All in all i recommend the teacher training at Kailash as it is a very good foundation for your yogic life no matter your age, level of experience or body shape. This is a good start to the rest of your healthy, wholesome and balanced life.
Linn Elise Goos Rølvåg (Yogini Jyoti) <email@example.com> Norway»06/04/2018This yoga teacher training was everything I was looking for, and more. There are so many yoga courses out there, so I’m still astonished that I managed to find the ideal yoga course that teaches the real meaning and aspects of yoga. I love Yogi Sivadas’ holistic approach- fitness isn't at the core, it’s an important aspect yes, but yoga is so much more than that- a philosophy, psychology, and above all a lifestyle suited to your personal needs that lasts a lifetime. Yogi Sivadas has so much knowledge about all the aspects of yoga, about the history and philosophy of India, and more, so if you do this course, be prepared to have your mind blown with wisdom concerning all sorts of things. I really recommend this course to anyone who wants to experience the authenticity of Yoga and India. The accommodation is also great, I had everything I needed to be more than comfortable- hot water, electricity, a kitchen, big bed and a balcony. I already miss Mcleodganj and the school so much and I hope to return soon to do the reiki courses (I have only heard great feedback) Thank you so so so so much for all your valuable teachings and for helping me make such a beautiful transformation. I will share the wisdom with the world for sure, the world needs it. Namaste and until next time. Pia Unutzer. Bavaria, Germany<firstname.lastname@example.org>05/16/2018
Thanks again so much for your enlightened and engaged teaching. I had a wonderful time in your school, learning not only a lot about yoga history, philosophy and teaching but also about myself. I came back healthy, inspired and in tune with myself. In fact, all my senses have intensified during my stay at McLeodganj! I recommend your school to anyone who wants to get immersed in the art and life of yoga – rather focussing on the health aspects than on performance as a goal. Although I only did the 200hrs course so far I do feel that I have already learned what it needs to help anyone – even those who are not fit yet – to get the best out of yoga.
So again: thank you from my whole heart! I do hope to be able to come back some time in the not so far future for the 300hrs course.
Bettina von Kupsch <email@example.com> Switzerland.01/31/2018I finished the Berlin Yoga Teacher Training with Yogi Sivadas in January 2018. Picking a YTT is very difficult, because there are so many available. I really recommend you Yogi Sivadas. He is open minded, very spiritual, and very profound in his teachings! The holistic approach of his Yoga teachings is good for the body and the mind. However, who thinks this is some kind of Yin Yoga only, is wrong. It is a well rounded style, that offers something for everyone (believe me I am a "Power-Yogingi"). He explains all poses in detail and reasonates on the health benefits and the correct alignment on the basis of anatomic explanations. He is willing to answer ALL your questions, which I loved. The theoretical part is very spiritual and profound. You will learn a lot. His Teacher Training is really a journey and you learn not only about Yoga but also about yourself. I truly recommend him!
And from next year on, there will be 2 teacher trainings in Berlin, which you can also book! Take the chance and get yourself a really good Yoga Teacher Training for a very reasonable price. I couldn't be happier with my choice! Jessica Kasprzak, Berlin Germany <firstname.lastname@example.org>12/15/2017I attended the 300hour advanced yoga course in November 2017 and it was the best decision I could have made. The exceptional and extensive, wisdom and knowledge shared by Yogi Sivadas is appropriate for all those wishing to deepen their practice of a yogic lifestyle and hone their individual teaching techniques. My only regret is that I didn’t take the full 500 hour course to extend the experience.
The yoga centre is set close to town, so shopping is easy for food and there are good restaurants nearby that offer a wide variety of food. The course keeps you busy most of the time, but being so close to town means that you can enjoy the bustle of Indian life as well as the calm of the yoga centre, a perfect combination.
It’s scary to book a long retreat without really knowing much about it, but Yogi Sivadas is a kind and generous man, with a passion for helping us all to become the best we can be. Thank you from England. Lynne Mawby <email@example.com>03/02/20184 weeks ago I passed the 200 YTT in Berlin. It took me some time to let things settle first before writing the testimonial, as there’ve been so many new informations and impressions to handle with. Although it was physically and mentally a very forcing course I would not miss this special time.
From Yogi Sivadas we could learn a holistic yoga generating the best benefits for health. And furthermore he put yoga in its real context:
not only to practice yoga as a way to train your body but also to realize the positive effect on your mind and way of behaviour which means to install yoga as one part or your yogic life within a holistic way of thinking.
Sivadas has such a profound knowledge on so many subjects like history, ethnology, medicine, alimentation or philosophy for example that it’s a pleasure to follow his lessons. And again: yoga is not taught as an isolated subject, but as a part of medicine, philosophy … and so as a part of everyone’s life. And the transfer of knowledge is done in a very pleasant, humorous and open-hearted way, sometimes in form of metaphors or stories.
Hope I will have the possibility to join another course in the future.
Dr. Christine Maria Manuela Baringer<firstname.lastname@example.org> Bavaria, Germany.It's been a couple days since I finished my 200 YTT with Yogi Sivadas in Berlin and, boy, I feel like I will need a lifetime to process all the knowledge and wisdom he shared with us during the course. His way of breaking complex and confusing philosophical thoughts down to their essence and bringing them to life in beautiful stories and metaphors was inspiring. He encouraged us all to not only learn the content and be able to repeat it but rather to make the knowledge of Yoga and Indian philosophy our own and to integrate it into our individual lives. The same understanding is visible in the way he teaches the physical aspects of yoga: as a holistic practice adaptable to the individual needs of a person.
To me personally however, Sivadas philosophical teachings were the most valuable part of the course. In the Western context I feel that spirituality, mindfulness and yoga are often understood as ways to optimize the ego, to ever improve it and never grow past it. Sivadas however – in my subjective and humble understanding – told us that, yes, you need to get to know and understand yourself but that actually in the end you need to get over yourself (!) to be able to see the beauty around you and enjoy it! I will cherish this awareness in my personal yoga practice and pass it on to whoever listens. I am very grateful for a challenging yet wonderful time!
