School run by 3 dedicated, hard-working, compassionate brothers. I’ve been practicing for years and can honestly say that Arvind is the best instructor I’ve ever had. He has a beautiful way of explaining things thoroughly, thinking of the answers to the questions you’re going to ask before they’ve even become an idea in your head. You will never regret studying under him and will only be sad that you can’t stay longer.
The best yoga center. I have had Narendra as a teacher and all his team. They are dedicated people which teach with love and they are really proffesionals in what they do. I am blessed I met them and I really recommend this school if you want to learn real yoga and also the therapy part. Namaste!
I first studied with Narendraji 6 years ago. After my first lesson, I understood that he was one of the finest teachers in Rishikesh. After this I studied with Jitendraji and Arvindji in the following years. They are brilliant teachers as well. Together they make a very professional and educated team, which is difficult to compete with. I highly recommend studying with them in Rishikesh.
I attended the 200 hour teacher training course in March 2017. I was very happy with the variety of subjects we covered and also the depth of what I learned in the course. I felt fully supported by the teachers and staff at Anadi, they are accessible, always open to have discussions and they encourage questions and self inquiry. You can really feel that they love teaching and they care about both the students and their subjects, they will help you push yourself farther than you think you can go. They have so much knowledge to share and they have a sense of humour too, making for an amazing experience and fostering great connection between everyone present. My expectations were blown away by Anadi, I am so happy with the course and grateful for the experience. The teachers gave me confidence to use the knowledge I acquired there and the curiosity and information necessary to pursue further learning independently too. I will certainly return to them for further trainings in the future.
I attended Anadi yoga centre March/April 2017 and had a fantastic experience. The asana teachers challenged me to improve my technique, strength and flexibility. They were excellent at explaining the correct alignment of postures and how to adjust others safely. The philosophy teacher was very passionate and and made learning interesting. Overall a great experience!
