“My experience was amazing. I would say it was life-changing. I came expecting something of course, and I am finishing the course today with a feeling that I improved in so many parts and so many things in my life. Way more than what I was expecting.

I think it was very important to have the curriculum so open and so wide in terms of knowledge – and again I was waiting for something that – it would be less condensed in knowledge but when I came here, I experienced something that’s huge and the real concept of yoga, so I’m really happy to be part of it.”

Vini Soares

“I joined the 200 Hour TTC and the 100 Hour Continued Education Training at Nilaya House with the intention to develop my own practice and deepen my knowledge of Yoga. In time, the journey led me towards teaching others and sharing the beautiful practice of Yoga. Each week was filled with so much wisdom, love, and teachings from the heart. The ability to learn along with a group of trainees under the guidance of authentic teachers has been extremely transformative. I am grateful to Nilaya House and Sneha for the opportunity to train under The Yoga Institute and have a traditional Yoga training experience in the heart of Dubai.”
Muskaan Adnani

“From February I started to look for different yoga trainings and I’m very lucky to have found the Yoga Institute. It’s been amazing – the whole journey. In this course, they not only just teach you asanas, but it’s really a holistic philosophy, and for me has been a whole discipline – a new way of living for me since I joined the yoga training.

I really feel so grateful for all the teaching and for all the experiences that the school has given me and opened up a new journey for my personal life. Recently I’ve also been given my very first professional job in a yoga studio and this has been a dream come true – thanks to the Yoga Institute. I’m really grateful, Namaste.”

Grace Petit

“The experience was absolutely beautiful, it was a very spiritual experience. What related the most with me was the philosophy of yoga. The catch for me to come into this was more asanas, but the more I learnt about the philosophies, about the Bhavas, about different types of yogas and yoga path.

The knowledge was just wonderful, it was amazing and I have really truly understood that yoga is a way of life – and it’s not an activity that you do, but a life that you live, based on all the wonderful principles and philosophy that I learnt in this course.

The teachers were amazing, very knowledgeable. Each session left me completely in awe of the content of what was being taught and the expertise of the teachers was amazing.”
