Mindful, Wholehearted & Transformational !

I spent one of the best months of my life this June 2017 at Karuna Yoga Shala, learning and growing into a better Yogi, and I think, an even better person.

Surrounded by a small and intimate group of women, who quickly grew to become my sisters, I was introduced to yoga philosophy, human anatomy & intelligent sequencing that have deepened my own practice as well as enhanced my teaching capabilities.


Workshops from guest teachers added fresh perspectives on yoga, and introduced us to different ways to apply yoga, from trauma relief, restoration to engaging children, making the course content very well rounded and diverse. There was never a boring day!

I especially loved how our classroom would sometimes be outdoors, giving us the chance to learn and practicing in nature, which was so refreshing for my entire being. The food was some of the most delicious vegetarian meals I have ever had, and totally turned me on to vegan eating, and inspired me to keep it up even after the end of the course.

Payal and Leyla are phenomenal teachers ! The experience and knowledge that each of them contribute makes them a dynamic duo that beautifully compliments each other, I am so honoured to have learnt with them. Even before the course started, I had their support and encouragement in my fundraising effort to afford the Teacher Training Course, which I greatly appreciated. Genuine, wholehearted, and so full of love and light, they are easy to fall in love with.

I hope the Karuna Yoga Shala continues to grow, creating a family of thoughtful and compassionate Yoga teachers across the globe !
