Yogi Sivadas is a truly amazing teacher. If you are looking for someone who is not going to force any belief system but make you think on your own, he is the right person. Some of the thema of his lectures were absolutely mind-blowing and they made me change in many ways how I see yoga and life. Sivadas also motivates and guides you through a gentle and safe Asana practice, which made me being able to train within my capacities without injuring or overtraining. I am looking forward to finish the second part of my training with him in a few years.Thank you very much,Rodrigo Fernandes, Berlin <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I recently completed my 300 hr training with Yogi Sivadas. I had a fabulous experience during this course. I have had a few years of my own yoga journey. I had this extensive quest for knowing more about this wonderful path. I had sourced all over, collect many books, studied with various schools and followed many traditions. Here with Yogi Sivadas, everything came into a better perspective. It was a power packed series of sessions for me. He encouraged me to ask questions without any hesitations. I was able to get most of the answers I was looking within a very short period. It is now time for me to get all these answers into perspective and thereby leading to further questions. I look forward to meeting him and spending time with him. He is a warehouse of abundant yogic wisdom. It is truly a blessing to have studied under him. Thank you!

I have completed 200 YTT in May 2013 and 300 YTT in October 2015, coming back second time around truly felt like I was returning back home. Yogi Shivadas has dedicated his life to teaching yoga and is unselfishly sharing all he has learned through his lifetime. He will be guiding you to practice with patience, up to your own capacity, but also to employ complete focus and dedication towards your studies.
Yogi Shivadas is teaching classical Hatha Yoga, incorporating all the 8 limbs of yoga with his teachings. Apart from expected asana training you will cover concepts, ideas and practices such as pranayama techniques, meditation, yoga nidra, bandhas, kriyas, nada yoga, bhakti yoga, anatomy and physiology, study of yoga Sutras, yoga philosophy, and introduction to Sanskrit, Ayurveda and much more. It is a holistic training, with theraputic focus which takes you on a journey of self-discovery. This course thought me how to incorporate a yogic lifestyle, into my daily routine. You will learn how to better care for your physical, mental and spiritual health by understanding ayurvedic concepts on body type or constitution, eating the right diet, applying cleansing techniques, learning to listen and interpret your body responses, and finally to reach state of mindfulness and contentment. Yogi Sivadas teachings incorporate wisdom of both East and West, assisting students to evolve and gain better understanding about themselves. At times his teachings may challenge your views, ideals, preconceptions, assumptions that shaped you through years of conditioning. You will learn to view yourself as part of the infinite consciousness and not as stand alone, selfish human being. Yogi Shivadas is helping his students increase awareness and knowledge about themselves and the world around them. He would often say that he wants us to achieve independence, find our own guru inside and not to follow blindly his or anyone else’s teachings.
Worth mentioning is that this training is delivered in one of the most beautiful locations in the world, in the foothills of amazing Himalaya Mountains. The little village of McLeod Ganj is continually bursting with activity, colour and interesting people. It a melting pot of cultures, Indian, Tibetan and Nepalese. There are many beautiful hiking treks that you can explore in your free time. In terms of accommodation you can stay with the school or book your own accommodation in the village. If you stay with the school you will have the most beautiful view, and be able to cook your own food as most rooms
have cooking facilities. Alternately there are many delicious vegetarian and vegan restaurants around.
I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to meet and study with Yogi Shivadas. The quality of his teaching has prepared me well and gave me confidence to pass on my knoweladge to others. I will be more than happy to assist you with any further questions.

Namaste! Congratulations on finding this gem of a yoga school and this one of a kind teacher: Yogi Sivadas is the reason to come to the Himalayas to study Yoga.
I consider myself extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to study for 500 hours with Yogi Sivadas at Kailash Tribal School. This school is a comfortable and compassionate oasis, and feels like home. This is a place where you should come if you want to develop your body, mind, and spirit, all with equal love and attention, without the competition or stress. When you come here, you truly get into harmony with your true nature.
Yogi Sivadas has the kind of innate and indigenous knowledge that is most difficult to find, and his familiarity with the western mindset makes him the perfect person to deliver the knowledge in a way that is understandable, graspable, and inspirational as he leads by his own humble and authentic example. He emphasizes tribal knowledge, as the name of the school suggests, encouraging us to remember and embrace our global tribe. Yogi has the most incredible life story that will make you realize that the world is ours, and will make you want to shine your light on as many others as possible, and dance in the beauty of this existence.
Kailash Tribal School is all about tailoring the yoga program to the person, and helping you discover what you need in order to make your life balanced and harmonized: in Yoga, in your diet, in your relationships with yourself and others, and branching out to every other aspect of your life. Yogi Sivadas makes sure to always remind us that practice with patience leads to perfection, and practice without patience leads to pain and problems. Join this special yoga family for a truly therapeutic journey, and step closer to discovering the highest version of yourself.
I loved the Yoga course so much that I decided to also take the Sound Healing and Reiki Master course that Yogi Sivadas offers, and I would highly recommend them all to anyone with interest in these subjects. I think everyone should take them, as they are like massages for the soul! I felt like my time here at Kailash Tribal School helped me to recharge my batteries and come to a much deeper sense of peace than I have experienced before, for which I will be eternally grateful!
If you have any questions, please contact me and I will be very happy to answer any questions and share my experiences. If you want to learn more about my healing journey, or follow my gypsy life, feel free to check out my blog as well; I am featuring an interview with Yogi Sivadas coming soon! Contact info below :)

'I met Yogi Sivadas in 2013 when I took the 200hs course at his Yoga School. It was such an amazing experiences that I new I wanted to go back for more courses. That happened this year between July and August! Not only did I take the 300hours course that I've planned but also I re took Reiki and Sound Healing! Why? Simply because the learning environment that Yogi Sivadas creates is yoga for the mind! His vast knowledge and modern approach to the ancient teachings of Yoga make his lectures one of a kind. The harmony, and serenity I experienced at Kailash Tribal School is immeasurable! For any one interested in going beyond asanas and breathing techniques, Kailash School is the place. Get ready to experience a journey to the Self and a treat for the mind and soul!’

I was recommended to this place by a trusted international yoga teacher. Sadly, there are hundreds of over-filled and badly taught courses out there. This is not one of them.
Small groups, no dogma, excellent teaching. Yogi Sivadas is a very spiritual dude with decades of experience. He is very grounded, and balances academic and scientific aspects with genuine spiritual connection.
He taught me balance, how to calm my mind, reiki, sound healing, chanting on top of the asanas and biological expertise necessary to teach yoga myself.
At one point, seeing I was loving the yogic literature, he brought in hundreds of ancient tomes and surrounded me with them and just let me sink into their pages and wisdom! My point is that he finds your interest and builds around it.
At the end of the course I happened to lose my wallet in town but him and his crew looked after me, got me on the bus and even made sure I had enough to eat etc until I got to my next destination. They really care and I can't imagine a better entry point into the world of being a yoga instructor. Samuel E. Raven, London, England, email@example.com
In March of 2015, I took the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course from the Kailash Tribal School in Dharamsala, India. In my three years of world travels, it was truly a highlight experience. Taught from end-to-end by Yogi Sivadas, it was a pleasure to work with someone that not only had clear mastery over the asanas, but more importantly embodied and taught the wisdom of the yogic lifestyle. Yogi Sivadas gave ample time in all classes to allow the discussion to open and unfold, leading the group to arrive at it’s own wisdom. I also appreciated being in a class of twelve students, allowing for each and every student to interact and contribute to the collective wisdom of the course. I came away having two complete yoga classes to teach, a fundamental belief in the wisdom of the yogic lifestyle, and a deep appreciation for Yogi Sivadas’ personal wisdom and dedication to spreading it.

I have been practicing yoga for many years, and i decided to do a yoga teacher training to go deeper in my practice and my knowledge of yoga and all its aspects. choosing Kailash tribal school to study was one of the best decisions I made in my life. Yogi Sivadas brought an entirely new perspective, not to mention wealth of knowledge, on the philosophy, psychology, and every other component of yoga. the patience, intelligence, and sense of humor were just a few of the many wonderful characteristics in Yogi Sivadas that made for the best teacher i could have been blessed to have the opportunity to study with. the class was small, just 12 people, which allowed for more personal guidance, and all of our questions were thoroughly answered in the discussions. it is a course that focuses on the functionality of yoga and integrating it into daily life. I would recommend this course for anyone who wants to become a teacher, learn about every aspect of yoga, and efficiently bring to others and future students/teachers the tranquility that living a yogic life has to offer. thank you for the incredible life-changing month; I will never forget it! namaste to all!

I have been studying the 200hrs teacher course with Yogi Sivadas and decided to also complete the 300hrs as the course was so wonderfully structured. The amount of knowledge, which is vast, opens new doors and pathways. What I always deeply appreciated while being with Yogi is that he wants to make you an independent teacher with creative thinking rather than just someone who follows the teacher blindly. After 10 weeks, I feel more grounded and am able to make more solid decisions and although I am not at the school anymore, Yogi is always a helpful person if questions come up in the future which he somehow always finds time to answer.
I am currently in Rishikesh and have seen some other teachers, but for my taste, they have not the same way of passing on knowledge in a way that isn't neither too technical nor too challenging to understand. He never imposes his opinion onto others and always leaves room for discussions. What makes him a great teacher I believe is his humbleness and his open mindedness as he has been travelling the world and his thoughts are therefore not only one sided. He therefore lives what he teaches.
A wonderful environment to practise I've found and although food is not included, it actually encourages you to be more self responsible. I recommend this to everyone without hesitation.

Thank you Yogi Sivadas for a wonderful time of selfstudy, self discovery and self realizatdion.
Kailash Yoga School was a life altering experience and Yogi Sivadas a true blessing to this world! His passion, energy and wisdom that he departs on the students is extremely inspiring. His spiritual and mystical mind coupled with his scientific approach to the themes in the course made a westerner like myself able to understand it all in a holistic way. This yoga course has been one of the most gratifying experiences of my life and it was all because of Yogi Sivadas - a teacher that allows you to become your OWN teacher and lets you find your own way instead of trying to mold you into something you aren't. Thank you again Yogi Sivadas for helping become more mindful and aware of my true nature. I hope to be back in India soon! Namaste!Agnes Wywrot, Canada, email@example.com
