Excelent value for money

I did a yoga therapy course at this institute and found the teachers very organized and great and especially the lead teacher, yogi Chaitanya was extremely patient and a true gentleman.

Fraudulent Business and Practices

I went to this school expecting to deepen my understanding of love and connection. This was not what happened. My partner and I attended the tantra immersion course here from Feb 1-5. We have been studying tantra for years and wanted to receive some teacher training so we could start holding workshops and classes at home. Upon going to the school we discovered that we actually knew more about tantra yoga practice than the instructors who were extremely inexperienced to say the least.


On the second day of the course Yogi Chaitanya sexually assaulted me during a one-on-one session. I was terrified during the experience but grateful i was able to walk away. He also did almost the same thing to another student in the course on the first day. Almost the entire class left the second day after my assault. I do not recommend the School of Holistic Yoga and Ayurveda (SOHYAA) as they are not as advertised and do not provide service from a heart-space. Their school is not even a real school but rather small houses all spread apart in a town where they host the classes and meals. Our yoga sessions were on an unfinished rooftop with hazardous materials and loud noise. They simply want to take your money.

Danger to women and a scam!

This business (School of Holistic Yoga and Ayurveda or aka SOHYAA) is a scam and also a serious danger to women. The founder and director (also the lead Yoga instructor) Yogi Chaitanya is facing charges of rape and is currently in jail for molesting 2 students in the Tantra immersion course about 2 weeks ago. The case made national news and is a serious court case at the moment. This fraudulent company is still advertising and accepting new students in hopes to steal more money from people.


They do not provide the services that they are advertising. They are misleading and lie about their curriculum and products. 7 out of the 10 students in the course left after the 1st day after realizing the course is a fraud, and also the volunteer instructor also left... Beyond the rape charges, we have heard many other students very disappointed with the yoga courses in the past, students end up quitting and the instructor has kicked students out and threatened to not give them their certificates. Thank you for listening, we hope to protect other women and hope that others dont fall for this.

Yoga Retreat with SOHYAA Goa

I had a wonderful time during my Yoga holidays here at SOHYAA Goa. Teachers were so nice ..bringing altogether a different serious deeper approach to my practice. Place is really beautiful if not flashy or luxury and prices are extremely affordable for any low budget Yoga traveler too.
