    What our students say

    This course has changed my life, it will never be the same. All my life I have been actively working in business and doing yoga just for the sake of a figure. At the same time, stresses, loads – the body could not stand it, and for many years I was looking for mechanisms to work with stresses, I tried to treat my body. Everything was walking in circles until I arrived at the Hatha Yoga Academy for a course that in 4 weeks opened up a new world for me. They introduced me to myself, to my resources and capabilities, to my true desires. We got acquainted with real yoga, with its philosophy, discovered its true meaning. And the practice. Which lead to inner harmony, to a deeper understanding of the world and the universe and its place in it, and, as a result, to calm the mind and the health of the body. In Moscow, I have not met this. Therefore, now every year I return to Phangan.

    Thank you my teachers
