Teju is Yoga Master and Ayurvedic Therapist both. The combination of being in both disciplines makes that his knowledge and understanding of the bodily aspects of yoga is very complete.

Teju, was born in 1983 in New Tehri, a city situated 80 km Northeast from Rishikesh in the mountains.
He got his Master in Yoga and Ayurveda at the University Devsanskriti Viswavidhyalaya in Haridwar. Other degrees he got are: Diploma in Yogic Science; Diploma in Naturopathy; P.G. in Hindi.
At first I was stunned by pretty much everything about this place, Ram, which runs the place, welcomed me and showed me to my room. He instantly made me feel welcome and seen. The rooms are clean and good, all comforts and unlimited supply of tea (good kinds) Since I was gonna spend a month doing the teacher training it is pretty important that I felt good in the surroundings, which I did. The YTT itself, wow, where to start.
It was ALOT more about me then I thought it'd be. At first this bothered me, I wanted more physical asanas and more challenges (pitta). But when I slowly accepted things as they where, I felt that this was, and is, exactly what I needed, and I'd like to go out on a limb and say, what everyone needs. This place will teach you the true meaning of yoga, in all it's aspects. If you want 75% or the course to be asanas you can show-off, this isn't the place for you, but if you want a journey deeper into yourself while learning about yoga, food, the body and much more, it is. Cannot write a review without mentioning; the best yoga teacher (and human being) I've been lucky enough to encounter works and lives here. Teju. Seriously, I spent four months in India, and if all I have to show for it is meeting Teju, it'd be worth it. And you're in luck because he's in charge of Yoga Asanas, Ayurveda & Anatomy.
