Yoga Teacher Training Reviews

​​ "Big thanks Madhura and Jose for all the knowledge you share with us. I am really glad to choose Banjaara Yoga school to learn Yoga. Was hard to do that in a month but what I acquired in that little time is much more than it was expected. It changed my lifestyle and my way of practice. I am motivated 100% to continue my raising in this beautiful philosophy's world."
- YASMINE LOMAZZI (Switzerland)
​​"Jose and Madhura are both wonderful yoga teachers in their own unique ways. They both really challenge you in every single class- whether that is within your thinking, your spirit or of course your physical limits! I have never experienced such devoted classes and extremely beautiful and profound knowledge from teachers before. They openly shared each class as an experience with enthusiasm and love. I miss practicing with them both and feeling what I believe is the true energy of yoga. Namaste to you both and thank you for everything. Om Shanti, Shanti Shanti from the cold cold UK!"
​- RACHEL MATTHEWS (Birmingham, UK)
​​ "I would totally recommend Madhura and Jose (Banjaara Yoga) as they are so knowledgeable in the practice of yoga, the philosophy and the art of teaching. Under their guidance and care, I transformed as a new person and as a caring, disciplined teacher. They challenge you in a good way, sometimes it's tough but it is worth to go through it with them. In a way, it's a mix of an old school and modern teachings which compliments both world of yoga we have today. You need both the traditional and modern aspects of learning, practicing and teaching yoga and these two lovely, caring teachers are perfect for it. No need to think twice. You are lucky if they are in your area. Grab them and don't let them go!"​​
​​ "I did my TTC with Madhura & Jose in May and the knowledge that these two wonderful people gave me was just priceless. Five months on and Im still using this knowledge daily. I am so thankful for the space you provided to grow and to learn. I hope you two are keeping well and hope pur paths cross again in the future xxx"​​
-CLAIRE BUCKLEY (Ballincollig, Ireland) 
​​ "I was at Banjaara Yoga and Ayurveda May 2017. The setting of the school in the foothills of Himalayas is amazing. Bagsu is a lively place and Macleod Gang is even livelier. I cannot even describe how privileged I felt to be able to experience this setting and to learn the practice of Yoga with such great people and experienced teachers. Madhura and Jose aim to tie together the traditional ideas together with contemporary teaching techniques. This style of teaching allows both a depth of knowledge and a freedom from which to develop your own individual style. 
Madhura has the uncanny ability to identify your greatest weakness, force you to face it and through disciplined practice will turn the defeat of that weakness into a personal triumph. Jose is a natural teacher. He awakens both meaning and understanding from the traditional teachings. He is relaxed and approachable yet commands a natural respect from the students. His teachings of Pranayama and Yoga Nidra were my favourite parts of the course. It was a magical experience when I felt I tapped into the mystery and the meaning of Yoga. Namaste  "
