What are the people saying?

This course was amazing!! I learned more than I could have imagined that is true to the lineage of yoga, felt supported throughout my entire journey, and the online TT gave me the flexibility to do this on my own time. It was incredible and I’m signing up for another online training now. I highly recommend!!

Lindsey Tschappat; Virtual Classical Kundalini 100 hour YTT

Namaste! I recently took the virtual Classical Kundalini YTT and what an experience! It was an incredible journey with the amazing Vishva-ji (you make me smile so much!) and the Akhanda family teachers, with a wonderful group of students to practice with. It was my first training with Akhanda and now I am hooked for life! Can’t wait til I can actually visit the ashram in person and meet you all face-to-face, but in the meantime, thank you so much for these fantastic, holistic online teachings. Keep them coming! Hari Om

Sarah Wall, Virtual Classical Kundalini 100 hour YTT

I was very impressed by the thoroughness and wealth of information and learning opportunity offered by Yogrishi Vishvketu and his teaching staff. I really dove deep into authentic knowledge about the subject all referenced by specific textual references. Vishva-ji is an amazing and very generous teacher. Fostering learning, understanding and connection. An addition to all yoga teachers wanting to expand both their own awareness through personal practice and understanding of techniques and authentic knowledge. I can definitely say this has helped me improve my teaching skills, too. I have really loved this course because even if it was virtual it offered a real life changing transformational experience. I can say I took a deeper journey into my energy body and have more awareness about it, knowing now how to convey this in my teaching.
