Dharamshala is home to the headquarters of the Dalai Lama’s Tibetan government in exile and is one of India’s most popular yoga destinations, making Dharamshala a great place for travelers and spiritual seekers to come together. Nestled in the Himalayan foothills, the beautiful surroundings and the spiritual attention of Dharamshala make this the ideal setting for a yoga retreat.

“Alpesh is the best instructor we met in Arambol!” “Massive improvements and a new understanding of yoga.” “You are just flexible, but it is not yoga” Thank you very much, Alpesh!!!” Alpesh is the best yoga instructor, with which we have encountered in the Arambol, Goa (were in seven yoga schools in Goa). At first glance, he didn’t look like a yogi but he is a teacher from God. He not just holds lessons in the form of Flow, I mean the constant shifting of asana but also seeks an internal understanding of the asana. Although we’re not rookies and been doing yoga in Berlin in two years, in the first week of being at Alpesh Yoga, it seemed that I’ve never done yoga. Alpesh teaches in Goa in the summer and holds winter classes in Dharamsala. 100% recommendation. Thank you so much Alpesh for a new understanding of yoga.” : Sabrina, Berlin, Germany

“How I miss your yoga and Pranayama classes! I feel very lucky that I discovered you on the day I arrived in Arambol, Goa. Or more accurately: you found me studying your yoga school flyer and told me to come the next day. Naturally, I obeyed. I had the opportunity to practice 20 days in a row. Yes, that’s every single day I was in Arambol, and I wouldn’t have wanted to miss one second of it. I attended intensive yoga classes at the yoga school & felt blissfully in touch with life. Now that I’m home, I am practicing three times a day. Already I notice being more relaxed about things, enjoying life as it comes. To me, this is more than enough reason to continue. Oh, and of course the fact that I enjoy the practice itself so much To anyone considering Alpesh Pranayama classes, I would like to say: Go ahead and take a class as often as you can! This is a unique opportunity to grab it with both hands. It might well be the beginning of a journey that will change your life. : Fiovoor Fiona, The Netherlands

“Thank you Alpesh for giving such a good knowledge of yoga. I would recommend everybody to go to Alpesh yoga school in Goa, India! Thank you for being so nice and also strict to help me understand yoga concepts and apply to myself. Yoga teachers at Alpesh helped me attain perfection in all the asanas. I understand it clearly now how to use the anatomy in yoga, and it wouldn’t have been possible without your yoga school.” : Shabrita
