Ramesh ji has given me so much knowledge in the one month I have spent in his shala. His simple but dynamic teaching style enables any student to get into any asana with ease provided they put in the effort. His adjustments are just perfect. Would definitely recommend to everyone and I can’t wait to come back to learn from sir once again.
It’s a very good school, Ramesh is fantastic in the adjustement and make you feel that everythng is possible. When you think it’s impossible and you want to release the asana, he just smiles and you stay there.It’s very good also because the shala is little, and the teacher have time for everybody. Sheetal (the teacher of philosophy and pranayama) is very sweet, patient and she has a very big knowledge. You can ask her almost everything about habits, mith, sutra … and she will answer smiling.The food is very good, every day different and cooked whit love.The shala is very clean, every day a beatiful sweet lady came to clean it.The practice is very hard but you can see your body change day by day. Just smiling
My Experience with Mysore Asthanga Shala was deep and enriching. Ramesh Sir is rightly called “King of Adjustments” his adjustments are to the point and his USP. He has immense knowledge and skilled experience. As a teacher he is approachable and down to earth human. Sheethal Damodar, another teacher who is responsible for Yoga Theory and Sutras is young,bright with lot of knowledge and patience. I definitely improved my Asanas and my attitude towards Yoga during this time. Thank you once again for this beautiful experience.
Awesome, deep, enriching!An intense journey of awakening awareness of myself, my removable limits, the feeling of my body and the mental tricks. I made the right choice to choose this Yoga school, no minimum doubt. Enter into Indian rythm and you won’t regret your choice. Thank you Guruji for you patience, your energy and your ‘magic’ adjustments that let me reach unthinkable postures. Thank you Sheethal, for your patience to my questions and your high knowledge you spread in your classes, I’ll come back next year for more practice and knowledge.Be ready for deep spicy delicious food. Namaste’
