Yoga philosophy teaches that real man is not his body, but that the immortal I, of which each human being is conscious to some degree according to his mental evolution, is not the body but merely occupies and uses the body as an instrument."

I highly recommend Shivalayaa Yoga Shala. Amazing place and wondeful people: not only Naveen and Diksha who treated us as their own family, but also all the members of the staff made us feel at home. The food was delicious and the TTC was beyond expectations so, if you are thinking about doing a TTC or spending a few days in India, this is the perfect place for you!!
