Now, almost 10,000 students have trained and given their yoga teacher training services in every country like the USA, UK, Canada, South Africa, China, Japan, etc.

The most amazing two months of my life I spend in this beautiful ashram, located in the beautiful seaside, a little apart from the city and the noise but close enough to take a walk in the fun streets of Goa. I am taking the 500 hrs, and I am so happy with the curricula and the teachers. Every day is a discovery of new knowledge. Every day surprises me more and more and makes me feel that the path is long but amazing. The people here are always smiling and happy. This is not just a school; this is home.

Overall, Mahesh does an excellent job of not only teaching the asana postures but also creating wonderful karma in the studio, allowing each student to practice at their own level while also working hard and having fun. I continue to look forward to each class with AYM and frequently attend class even when I’m tired or feeling lazy simply because he is teaching. I highly recommend him for beginners, intermediate and advanced students.

Aym is located in a beautiful place in Goa, not so far away from the city, but long enough to find peace of mind and a beautiful view of the Sea!! People are, and the place is very cozy!! Ar, this has been one of the best experiences of life!! I learned a lot, and it has helped me to learn about their culture and customs!!

After my teacher training, I would say that I truly believe in Yogi Chetan Mahesh Ji. His corrections of postures, methods to enhance breathing methods are excellent. I recommend it fully!!. I had never gone so deep in the Pranayama practice that I used to think of Pranayama as a boring practice before teacher training.

I recommend this training 👍

I had the most amazing experience here at AYM in Goa. The location is excellent because it is away from the hustle and bustle of the noisy city, but close enough to go to the market or get something to drink. Every morning we woke up to Pranayama looking at the sunrise over parts of the Sea. The instructor’s courses were what to expect for a beginner except for the Anatomy and Physiology class. I was expecting a level that would have focused more on the Yoga postures. Besides that, it was great. The instructors were all full of positive energy. The facility was standard and better than expected. The food was also better than expected. Some may have gotten sick of the food, but I thought it was suitable for our body’s cleansing process. The incredible part of the school were the people. I met some fantastic people here. I enjoyed getting to know all the staff here. Guru Mahesh, his wife Sonya, and his daughter Samiha were so beautiful. And the rest of the team were so good to me and made me feel at home. Uncle G, Sachin, Amreesh, Sukdeep, Mahavir, and others. I apologize that I cannot spell your names. Thank you all so much for being a part of my spiritual journey. I will never forget you, and I hope to see you again.

The students, teachers, and location make AYM a great school for doing your 200-hour yoga teacher training. Our group of 25 students was a very eclectic group ranging from age 19 to 62. They came from more than 10 different countries and had a varied yoga experience level before joining. Most of all, they were all passionate and curious about yoga and were full of love, support, and joy for each other. Our two yoga asana teachers were amazing. They were knowledgeable, patient, and light-heated. Starting each day with an Ashtanga Vinyasa practice quickly built up our strength, stamina, and familiarity with the poses. Later in the day, our awesome Hatha teacher took us slowly through different positions giving us individual attention. We focused on correct alignment and how to assist students.  Studying at AYM was a life-changing experience – the support of the students, teachers, and staff made it feel like one big family beginning our yoga teaching journey together.

I loved my time at AYM Yoga School. I had an unforgettable experience and gained immense amounts of knowledge and wisdom while making friends from all over the world. I would recommend this school to others in a heartbeat. Although I will say, AYM has a strict policy on attendance and participation. Through my experience thus far, I have learned that not all yoga schools are created equally. And what sets AYM apart from other schools is that it maintains tradition and holds one accountable for the journey an individual chooses to embark on with knowledge and support along the way. This school is the real deal. It is challenging, but it is worth it.



I enjoyed the great group of international students and staff at AYM. I feel like I learned a lot about yoga practices and business around the world. I appreciated the down-to-earth atmosphere and the positivity and supportiveness of the staff. The curriculum delivered exactly what was promised on the website – a comprehensive look at ancient Hatha. I learned so many new things that have piqued my interest. I look forward to going home and continuing to build my practice and continue to learn more. The food was excellent, and the accommodation was very comfortable. Yoga Teacher Training is an excellent program for beginners and those seeking information and practices for a comprehensive look at yoga. Sad to leave! Thanks for a beautiful month Students Feedback
