Submit your review
I finished my 200h multi-style TTC in November. It was really great time that we had in this 4 weeks of practicing, learning the theory and having fun with the group and teachers in the lessons and in the eating time. So it was a feeling of being in a family but also learning a good quality of yoga. We had 2 Yin and 2 Ashtanga and Nidra classes and Vinyasa, Hatha, Shivananda was on the schedule the whole 4 weeks. The teachers really cared about you and helped you as much as possible if you had problems. So it was an amazing time with amazing food (thank you Prem) and I had a really nice time with those guys.
Thank you very much
I finished the 200hrs yoga teacher training at Ek Omkar Yoga school. It has truly been an amazing experience. The quality of the classes was really high. Great and very professional asana, anatomy and philosophy teachers. Aman also taught a pranayama class every morning which made us students feel grounded and relaxed. The whole school has a family feel to it. There's great care for the students and lots of warmth and fun. Delicious home cooked vegetarian food. An absolute recommendation!
“The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts"
It’s hard to choose among the many yoga TTC in India, but if you want a comprehensive yoga TTC designed with the utmost professionalism in a friendly and relaxing environment then I highly recommend EkOmkarYoga Center. My month at EkOmkar in Goa was fabulously enriching.
I not only deepened my asana practice, but it also managed to put my life on a track of a balanced and healthy lifestyle. I chose the program at EkOmkar mainly because they limit the number of students to 10, and now I know this was a right criterion of choice. The personal attention and in-depth learnings I received were awe-inspiring. I had four teachers each proficient in their own area, yet so well synched in their teachings that each built on the other. The team of teachers really demonstrated that the “whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. From the Hatha and Vinyasa Flow teachers to the Anatomy and Philosophy teachers, each passed on their knowledge with depth of understanding and generosity of teaching. This month thanks to Aman and his team showed me how yoga is a brilliant tool to help one reach inner peace and harmony.
The EkOmkar family was exceptionally warm and kind showing Indian hospitality at its best. They made sure I was comfortable every day from my personal needs in my room to what I ate.
The food was so delicious, made with fresh vegetables and love three times a day. My room and the whole space were super clean, which complimented my whole experience. The school is also ideally located with an energizing open view of the Arabian Sea and a short walk to the infamous Arambol market.Needless to say, I gained beautiful friendships, unforgettable memories and of course in-depth yoga learnings. Thank you EkOmkar Yoga Center. I love you and will be back to see you soon.
Namaste my friends.

I have finished 200 hours training course with a bigger heart and incredible knowledge. Special thanks to Krista and Aman 🙏🏽...because of them I felt even more in love with YOGA 🤸🏽♀️❤️🕉.
Completed my 200 hours Yoga TTC with Ek Omkar - so grateful to people who organized and maintains the place! Amazing place for practices near the beach, experienced teachers, delicious veg food, what else you need to become a great yoga teacher! I got tons of knowledge and ready to share them with my students! Loads of thanks!
I completed my TTC at Ek Omkar yoga and I loved the experience, we all had a really good time and learned A LOT. Many thanks to our great teachers Aman and Krista and all the people that made this 4 weeks the best time for all of us. Special thanks to the kitchen for that yummy food ❤️ I would definitely recommend it.
A wonderful place to learn yoga. Ek Omkar is a with a great location - right at the beach where u can enjoy the sea anytime you want and the people looking after the place are super friendly and make you feel like u are part of the family.
Aman is the main teacher who teaches Shivananda and Hatha. All he teaches is based on practice, not theory which is great in my opinion. Good asana teaching and he pays lots of attention to pranayama as well, which not many teachers do and I really enjoyed that as I think pranayama is super important and beneficial. He is such a good soul. I have to say part of the huge respect I have for him as a human and teacher I feel he became my friend too. I definitely recommend the place 🙂
This course was fullfilling. I learnt a lot about the physical aspects of yoga, a couple of new mantras and got deeper into Pranayama practise. And ofcourse learnt how to be a effective yoga teacher, ready for the modern practise of yoga in the world today. Grateful to Aman for sharing his knowledge with humility. He made no pretence throughout the course. He was there with us like a friend and fellow seeker. We had a couple of teachers for different styles like Yin, Ashtanga andthe theory aspect, so we learnt from many perspectives. Questions and discussion on clarity of the techniques as well as philosophical understading was encouraged. The could have been more regimental. I wish there was proper sattvic food to go with the learning timetable. The walia brothers work very hard to keep the setting very calm and relaxed, thankyful to all of them.
This yoga center worked well for me and what I wanted out of the experience. The center is right along the beach and I was able to swim and read out in the sun inbetween classes. Aman is an excellent yoga teacher and his practice and insight helped me to focus on some things I've been wanting to expand in life. Our ashtanga teacher was also very insightful and I got a lot our of her classes.
The other classes to the course were a bit of a let down. I felt like I had teachers speaking at me and just reading from the book for our anatomy class, and our philosophy portion was a man that just kind of imposed his view points on you and talked about himself the entire time.
We also didnt recieve a manual for the course which the book provided does have a lot of information to refer to but I would still really like something with pictures and more poses to do a quick reference to instead of flipping through a book. Right now I have a bunch of papers disoragnized with notes on them that I'm worried will get lost with my upcoming backpacking travels.
Ultimatley I loved Aman the main teacher and am glad I did this specific course with him. It worked really well for me and what I mentally wanted to get out of it. There are improvements that can be made though.
I did my 200 hours Yoga teacher training course at Ek Omkar Yoga Center in December 2016 and would really love to recommend this school to any person interested in learning more about his body, breath and mind!
What I liked most:
Small efficient group-sizes: Less than 10 students – that´s awesome! And hard to find anywhere else. Teaching is based on friendship and trust. Excellent, helpful, knowledgable and patient teachers with years of teaching experience! Yoga Alliance certificated. 5. Based on Hata Yoga you will also get a deep understanding for Sivananda- and Ashtanga Yoga. Perfect guideline: course includes Yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation, philosophy and anatomy. The first 2 weeks you work on improving yourself, the last 2 weeks you focus on teaching techniques and -practice. The place is safe and quiet, 1min to the beach. Very clean and nice accommodation in huts. Food is cooked fresh 3 times a day and is really- I mean really awesome! Teachers are there after classes as well – it is a very home-feeling atmosphere.
