What People Say About Us


I count myself blessed that I did my Meditation Teacher Training Course from Anandabodh Yoga School. Shivachittam Sir is truly the fountain of knowledge and bliss and every class with him was fascinating and full of value. We learnt the practice and theory of Meditation in the style of prestigious Bihar Yoga/Satyananda Yoga tradition. Personally, I feel more connected to my inner self and to everything around me. Before enrolling in this course, I used to practice meditation as a way to relax myself, to calm myself and feel happy in general. This course made me aware of the truly transforming abilities that Meditation has, how it helps us to connect to our higher power and access the wisdom and strength of this higher power to guide us through life. Yoga and Meditation are indeed a way of life and I had read about this before countless times, this course gave me tools and insights to fully embrace this lifestyle. Right from the moment I wake up to the moment I sleep, and beyond that as well. As a teacher, I feel more confident because of the vast knowledge imparted to me in a very structured and organised way. The course covered the very basic aspect of Meditation to the very advance one. As Meditation Teachers, it is our responsibility to give students what they come seeking - be it Mental peace, improving their focus, overcoming social anxiety, and so on. This course will help you deliver on that. Thank you.

My meditation teacher training course was an incredible and enriching journey. Shivchintan Sir is a veritable fountain of knowledge. All the lessons and exercises taught by him such as Pranayam, the Chakra studies, Yog Mudra, Antarmaun, Ajapajap, Bandh and other Mudras were explained in minute detail and immense clarity. He makes the difficult to grasp concepts clear with his detailed reasoning and demonstrations with utmost patience and a rare gift of vision. I have been practicing Yoga for over 10 years but the past three months have been a unique experience for me due to the teachings imparted by him. The ability to feel light as well as attaining and maintaining a state of 'Sam bhav' - equanimity in adverse circumstances comes with great toil and determination. He has however, made me feel fairly adept at entering and remaining in that extraordinary, rewarding state. I shall forever be grateful and indebted to him for allowing me this great honour and an opportunity to learn under his tutelage.

Shivachittam ji, is an excellent teacher in all respects. His words speak of his depth of knowledge and his commitment to the field of Yoga. I did not had to doubt or double check any of his words as inside me I felt he cannot be wrong. It appears to me he lives and breathes yoga which is very evident in his way of teaching and sharing his knowledge. It is very rare that good teachers in the field of yoga are also willing to share their knowledge and experience. Meditation TTC was a very good experience for me to get an in-depth idea of the meditation techniques and their purposes. In the course we not only touched upon meditation but also pranayama and Bandhas as it contributes significantly to meditation. The course covers practical as well theory lessons. Candidates also conduct meditation sessions without any written script in front of them, which is very helpful and I gained a lot of confidence in my speech and delivery of meditation classes. All in all it was a deep learning experience for me as we touched upon many topics, did in-depth study of chakras. Class session also involve sharing our experiences in meditation which was important to understand the journey forward. A big ThankYou for Shivachittam ji for time and commitment in sharing his knowledge and experience with his students.

I have been learning and practising yoga, specifically the therapeutic, gentle, Bihar School of Yoga, under Master Shivachittam since my early 30s. Now 54, a mother of 5, I can truly say it is his gentle guidance, his wisdom, and his deep understanding of the body, mind and the psyche that has set me free. Now a poet, writer and activist and always a part time yoga teacher ( I undertook the Yoga teacher training under him), I teach Menopause Yoga, and other forms of therapeutic yoga in one on one or group settings. I can thoroughly vouch for his knowledge and style of teaching; I embraced yoga and yoga embraced me back, and has set me free to create, live in joy and bliss, and I would urge you to experience his classes and teacher trainings too!

He is a very experienced and professional Yoga Teacher. He is a great personality and a true passion for teaching and inspire others. They empower students with an amazing positive attitude. They follow the prestigious Bihar School of Yoga tradition in their teachings. It is a Holistic-integrated school of Yoga.
I learnt Yoga in its wholesome form, not only some Asanas and Pranayama, but a lot of other components of yoga, it's truly a self realization for me. It has totally change my life. I gained a beautiful harmony between head, heart and hand through the practices we learnt during the course. It's a very amazing journey and a greatful experience with Sir. This is not just a course but it teaches us to be self dependent and how to present ourselves in the professional journey of yoga.

Suman Sharma (Gurgaon)

I did the 200 hours Yoga TTC at Anandabodh, and to say the least, it was a transformative experience. Coming from a corporate background and having done yoga only at gym, I started with a very limited understanding of yoga. What followed were 4 months of understanding yoga in its entirety, consistent practice and finishing with a holistic perspective. At the end of the course, not only did my understanding evolve to a different level but also, there was an upliftment in my lifestyle. All credits to the wonderful teacher who facilitated the training so well. Shivachittam sir is the best person in the field to learn from. His knowledge and wisdom shone throughout the course. I am grateful that I could get guidance from him so early on in my yoga journey.

My experience of the Teacher Training Course with Anandabodh
I was always keen on learning yoga in its purist form. I had followed a certain Yoga group for over ten years and I thought I knew quite a bit. I had even taken Sessions in the past but I knew my knowledge was haphazard and limited.
I feel so blessed to have found Anandabodh school and Shivachitam as the teacher. I came and asked 100s of questions before starting as I was so skeptical about who I will invest my time and money with! I started after being convinced that I’ve met the right teacher. As the classes began , I started to learn about Yoga as it is! It was beautiful to learn from someone who has profound knowledge of the subject and has been trained from the best insititude. I’m grateful for what all I’ve learned and I cannot wait to pass my new found learnings with the world.
Highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn from the best!
