"If you are looking for an authentic experience with an Indian family in a quiet meditative setting, this is it! The serenity of the place is unparalleled. The long periods of pre-scheduled downtime forced me to confront my need for constant activity. The yoga instruction was informative and the home cooked food, amazing! Teaching the village children epitomized what India is all about for me and makes me long to go back.
Overall a very rewarding experience and one I have already recommended to friends."

Where to study Traditional Yoga?
"I want to thank you all team of Shrimath- Krishna for interesting philosophy, chanting and life lessons, Hema for beautiful yoga classes, Smrithi for very tasty food (now i am addicted to idli and dosa :)). The course is structured in more retreat way - and its good because we had time to enjoy the nature. Also it was great experience to go to rural school- to teach Indian children.
I had a great time and i now i am more flexible, balanced and is able to practice and teach yoga others. Thank you again!"
