anjaliLast year I decided I would like to go to India and take my 200 hour TTC. My best friend knew a girl who had done it and hooked us up through Facebook. After chatting with her and doing almost no other research I decided to just go for it and register with Kailash Tribal School. I believe the universe listens and knows and whatever you put out will come directly back at you in one way or another. I felt connected and I had a feeling that where I was headed was going to be great; life changing. Yogi Sividas surpassed that feeling. He taught me more than I could have ever imagined and for that I will be forever grateful. It was a wild experience of growth, love and awareness. I will never forget him saying, "blink your eyes course is over, blink your eyes life is over." That has changed everything for me. Thank you, Yogi Sivadas, for shining your light and giving me the opportunity to shine mine. Kristen Pascall, Vancouver, Canada. pascall.kristen@gmail.com
jayaI can vouch for the fact that this is a beneficial four weeks of your life. It is more of a therapeutic and de-conditioning experience than you could imagine. The focus is on providing you with the teachings via talks, discussions and sometimes heated debates, documentaries and personal study so you can enlighten yourself and conquer the Lower Self, this being the main thing holding us back from attaining our true dreams and goals and being happy. So obvious, yet when you are in a conditioned society that level of thinking can become entrenched in your head. After this course my mind feels more free, clear and evolved. I am definitely more in a position to teach yoga above and beyond the practice of asana and I am excited about the journey ahead knowing I am equipped for the ride. Sivadas has a great deal of patience, focus on health, boundless enthusiasm and puts a lot of emphasis on the real meaning of Yoga. It encourages a healthier and more transcendental approach to teaching. To future students reading this, this course is more than you think it is going to be, it works to create people who will be great teachers because they have been taught how to deal with themselves first. It strips away the ego and reveals the essence underneath, the consciousness and the wisdom, what is essentially the micro-universe. Once this is realized we are more equipped to help others realize themselves. But expect all this to happen on a subtle level, and you are doing it all yourself.

cnaI'm a medical doctor which is a great but stressful job. For myself I wanted to learn from Yoga how to help myself. At Kailash Tribal School I got a lot of Knowledge to help me to find my own balance. It was the greatest gift I could get at this moment of my life. During my 200 hours course, I could ground myself again. I got interest again in the important questions of life: Who are we? Who am I? Why are you living? How the world around us? Why does it matter? What is important? Since then I try to enjoy every breath and it has got so much easier. During this month the ceiling above me has been removed and now I contemplate the stars. Kailash Tribal School is great, because it makes everybody grows with the help of yoga. Yogi Sivadas help us to implement this knowledge in a modern and creative way in our life. If you are lucky and can take this time for you and for your future students: do it! Nathalie Scherz (Yogini Chetana) from Switzerland.
induMy soul purpose brought me to Kailash Tribal School, it was the same sensation I have when I know deep inside myself I am following my highest self.. Having for long time the dream of discovering the ancient wisdom from different traditions around the world, Yoga was my first inner journey when I used to close my eyes just to feel my body, my mind and my spirit, not knowing that years later I ended up in the Himalayas learning from a great teacher, Yogi Sivadas, who not only helped my to discover my own nature, who helped me to understand that no matter the path we choose in life we are cells of the infinite cosmic consciousness that is expanding without comprehension, un manifested, sublime, wordless… the training was spiritual at the same time scientific, perfect combination of our inner world: Shiva and Shakti dancing together in a perfect communion.. perfect explanation of the meaning of Hatha.. I treasure also the opportunity to learn tabla from Kushiram, our sound healing training.. every breath I took in the school was transformative, pure wisdom… I was reborn again… sandra.morale6@hotmail.com Sandra Morales (Yogini Indu) Colombia & Australia
deepaIn Korea, old people saying that "Buckle up first button is very important" If you buckle up first button with second or third hole in your shirt, you will screw up rest of your buttons. Shivadas was my FIRST button in my yoga life. I think I have very good first step with Shivadas. I have strong foundation to build up my own solid building. Some people said Guru waiting for disciple who is ready. I was looking for a place to learn all about yoga. The cosmic consciousness pulled my consciousness to here to learn history of yoga, life, philosophy etc. I guess I was ready for yoga. 2 and a half months is quite short period compare with whole life time. This short period of time changed my self and my life totally. I didn't learn only for yoga. I learned all about our life, our life in Patanjali's sutra, misery and suffering, learned how to deal with it. Our nature, universe, our body all in here we learned. Oh also learned Sanskrit! I was so excited to learn it. I love it! So happy to have that chance to learn with native teacher !!! This program doesn't heal everyone here directly. Shows variety of tools to get healing yourself. I'm the person who take my harvest. I'm the person who pick the crops and learning for my self. If I ask question to my self. * What was the best thing in last 10 weeks? = •Able to control my mind •Addicted to meditation •Aware of my self better *What was the worst thing in last 10 weeks? = •Language (struggling at the beginning, but through meditation, improved focusing, increased my English skill) Among his great speeches, I will keep these in my mind forever, • Time is project of your mind • You don't perceive your self well, you can't perceive others as well • Expectation gives you more disappointment, acceptance gives you more chance to fulfillment A lot of his great speech that you should to listen! It's amazing speech that will touch your heart. I came here to be a yoga teacher. But I learned more than that. I even didn't expect it. Not just through the course. Through nature, through experience and through people. We had a lot of laugh, joy, fun and sharing. I totally transformed to a new person now. I can realize that. It's such an amazing experience!! Many thanks to my guruji : Shivadas and madam Alice (her warm heart, cuddle and listen us) Kushi and Anish's fun energy and all of staff in here like family. I appreciate to all of them again. I reborn with new family! I will miss you all. But I will remember we are all connected, we are one ! so we are not in a part! While I take the course, I didn't know it but now I look back and see all of your love, care and cheer! Also our memories we shared together that's biggest souvenir for me. Many many of my bliss and appreciation from bottom of my heart ;-) Korea and China (maximooth02@gmail.com)
akhilaMy journey to India started with great excitement and nervousness! I was worried I will not be as good as all the other fellow students because most of my yoga was at the gym and self home practice trough android app's. When I started with my first day I could not have imagined what and incredible journey I have entered myself into for the next month. I learnt yoga from the beginning and what is the most important guidelines to practice and teach to others. But aside from the yoga I have spiritually and mentally learned so much and grew so much in myself and found healing and answers I wasn't even looking for! I have learnt so much over the 200 hours I did and I am looking forward to return to complete another 300 hours to obtain my 500 hours as a teacher. Thank you very much Yogi Sivadas for everything you taught me. Rachel Janse van Vuuren, South Africa. Email: rykie.bee@gmail.com or Facebook: Rachel Janse van Vuuren
semeraYogi Sivadas is down-to-earth, straightforward and inspiring man who shares the bunch of practical knowledge for healthy tuning our lifestyle in the course of nature. Defining spirituality as: 'individuals taking care for themselves', he does not mystify some black holes in the knowledge – indeed – he demystifies superstitions, inviting for self-awareness & self-responsibility as well as giving the true tools for such fine goals. Absolutely recommended! (semrakikic@gmail.com) Bosnia

swetaBy far the best education of my life!!! They say when the pupil is ready, the teacher appears!!! I have finally experienced this today. Being raised as a Hindu in India and now living in USA for the past 10 years, I was a bit lost and came here thinking I will reconnect to my roots…my Indian roots (to be precise) but surprisingly found myself grounded and connected to my human roots, connected to mother earth and its splendour. This is not just a yoga program but an “Art of Living” program which teaches how to live for better!!! And after 10 weeks, I am better version of my own trueself? My 10 weeks advanced yoga teacher training and 3 levels of Reiki course was not limited to just asanas and scriptures but included a whole spectrum on human anatomy, workings of human mind, yoga history, evolution, food, meditation, Sanskrit, yoga as therapy, chakras, pranayamas and finding your divine nature. The program design is challenging but exceptionally well planned and organized. The atmosphere in and around the studio is very calming and gives a gurukul feeling. The view from the studio and the student rooms is beyond exceptional. The peace from watching the sunrise and sunset in the Himalayas is simply divine. The educational books, music and resources provided during the course are a true treasure for life. Acharya Yogi Sivadas is a true scholar and it was my pleasure to study under his guidance. This is not the end but a beginning of my true calling my dharma!!! Yogini Shweta sadhanapartners@gmail.com
kamalaI have been here at the Kailash Tribal School of Yoga and Holistic Healing for the 10 week program, and what an amazing experience it has been. I turned 60 y.o. the first day of class. I felt that this would be a great way to start the new decade, and yoga teacher training is something I have wanted to do for some time. I am a nurse practitioner in the U.S., working in family practice and psychiatry, and was particularly interested in healing with yogic and ayurvedic techniques, as well as further developing my spirituality, meditation practices and fitness. I was worried that my body would not tolerate 4 hours of yoga classes daily, and only committed to the 200 hr. course initially for that reason, although I was actually more interested in the content of the 500 hr. course to follow. My worries were unfounded, and I benefited greatly from the physical practice, without injury. I have chronic back pain, from 38 years of various forms of nursing. This is much improved, and I lost 9 kg. while here. Yogi Sivadas always advises gentle practice, listening to one's body, and resting when needed. This approach was perfect for me, and for everyone, in my opinion. Additionally, I have been so impressed with his teaching of the vastness of yoga as a way of life that leads to individual peace, more peace in our relationships and the world around us. Yogi Sivadas is a teacher with high ethical standards, along with a strong commitment to communicating with his students individually in ways that work. He extends his assistance to everyday issues as well. International students have various issues that arise during a long-term stay. He goes above and beyond to help with these needs as well. I plan to start a small school at my home in Wellington, KY, for yogic healing, meditation and Reiki. We have a small organic farm that backs up to the Daniel Boone National Forest, which I think will be an ideal setting. I have been inspired to move forward with this plan by Yogi Sivadas, and am proud to say he has been my teacher. p.s.
