What People Have to Say About Us

I love my EDYS! My time here at the school went better than what I had expected. I came here nomading from different countries to do a teacher training course but it didn’t take them much longer to make me a part of their family. Thank you team Ekam Drishti Yogshala for creating this yogic space safe and nurturing for curious minds like me. I will definitely recommend and will soon return to do my 300 hours in the future.

Lizzie 200 Hours Yoga TTC (Feb 2021)

Ekam Drishti Yogshala has been the most valuable find for me this year. This place is a combination of peace, love, and lessons. All the teachers out here are brilliant! Everyone is good in their work. The best take-home is the yoga that we learn and practice. The staff is very courteous and professional. I was not disappointed.

Alina 300 Hours Yoga TTC (Feb 2021)

This place is a masterpiece in its own way. I was looking for a place where I can be away from the city landscape so I picked up ekam drishti yogshala thinking even if it’ll be bad at least the scenery around will be worth it. But I was wrong. The place as special as it was becomes even better because of the ambience that the team creates. It’s highly nurturing, peaceful, and fulfilling to be here. If you’re looking for a school that feels like a retreat then it is here. The only bad I can think of is the food being a bit spicy for my taste but I understand that nothing’s perfect. I’ll give it 4.5/5.
