I participated in the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Shambhuh Yoga. I would recommend this course to everyone who is looking for yogic experience in Rishikesh. This course is suitable for the practitioners of basic, intermediate as well as advance level. Guruji Sanjay Raturi is an amazing and a highly dedicated teacher of Meditation. My understanding of yoga has evolved because of his sessions and I thank him for that.I want to thank Shambhuh Yoga who made me feel like staying with my family and taught me a lot of their knowledge.
