The city’s vibrant energy serves as a catalyst for personal growth, inspiring practitioners to find inner peace amidst the hustle and bustle of urban life. In Mumbai, every corner holds the promise of a new experience, whether it’s practicing asanas on the serene beaches of Marine Drive, meditating amidst the lush greenery of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, or delving deep into yogic philosophy in the heart of the city.

Hardik is the most wonderful teacher and I knew it immediately. It was clear from the outset that he is an incredibly talented teacher who has deep knowledge of Yoga. To describe this is slightly intricate as there are many factors that make a great teacher apart from just having deep knowledge and understanding of the various practices, from my perspective this can range from communication skills which are wide ranging, energy, patience, balancing seriousness with humour, humility, adapting to the class, individuals and ability, and Hardik has all of this in abundance. He is a man who practices what he preaches so you just have to observe and you will learn a lot. Most of all the light hearted demeanour and humour was something I loved from the outset and really helped given the amount of time spent learning and practicing over the course. I really enjoyed the numerous conversations about all topics, yoga and other, be it asanas, pranayama or meditation practices, or anatomy, philosophy and general life related topics, Hardik tends to bring a useful perspective to most discussions. This feeds into the Holistic perspective and content that Sayujya Yoga has created and teaches on the course. I loved the fact this was a holistic course that touched on so many aspects, as it has given me a foundation level understanding and the ability to dive deeper in the areas that interest me the most. So overall, and as you might be able to guess from the feedback given, is my experience of Hardik and Sayujia Yoga is 5*. I can only hope that I can find my way to Goa where I believe they will be teaching next…

I did the 200hr teacher training back in may. It's hard to describe what a great course and all around guidance I had with Hardik and Prutah. Their gentle way of teaching made it possible for me to really get into the practice. They made me understand the foundation of yoga and what impact it can have on life. I can say that the teaching is beginner friendly but I'm sure that practitioners with experience also get a lot to reflect on. It's an hollistic approach and they try to touch all the parts of yoga: practice and theory. I can proudly say they got me hooked on the practice and with their help I got a 1 hour practice schedule that I've been practicing daily for the past 4 months (and I see major changes in my life). Besides the teachings, Prutha en Hardik (and Minaji of course) are the most wonderful people. They keep on giving without asking anything in return and it doesn't feel forced at all. I've got an Indian family now! I'm returning for the 300hr!

What can I say, Hardik is one of the best yoga teachers I have ever had. His style is characterised by holism and foresight. He always tries to balance modern approaches and traditional practices. I was able to complete my 200 hour yoga teacher training with him in Pokhara, Nepal in May 2023. Thanks to his dedication and expertise, a whole new perspective on the "yoga universe" opened up for me, I have been able to deepen my daily practice greatly since then and benefit from it every single day. I can only recommend Sayujya Yoga to anyone and everyone, if you are open to it, the courses and trainings with Prutha and Hardik have the potential to change your life and make you happier, calmer, wiser and healthier. - every day a little bit more. Dear Hardik thank you for being you, stay as you are and we will definitely meet again. Your friends, Tobias and Eva Hari Om

Prutha and Hardik are the best teachers and I am so happy I used to do my first Teacher Training Course with them. It is really important to understand those little things and details they kept sharing with us. I came back home as another person. If before I felt super unflexible, not able to concentrate and meditate, during alignment classes with Hardik I understood my limitations, but most important, strong sides, and now I concentrate on them instead of thinking am not good enough to do yoga. Prutha explained us the real meaning of meditation, and I realized it is not what nowadays everyone is trying to do out of it, but something what makes me concentrate and forget about anything in the world for that time. I understood that yoga should be a pleasure, not a force to prove anything to anyone, and most important, I accepted the thing, that I shouldn't rush in order to impress anyone, I need to take things slowly in order to progress in a long team. And what is really important, both, Prutha and Hardik are there for us even after we finished the course and came back home. Any questions we have, any information we need, they are just happy to reply straight away and to share it with us. It is not enough of words and symbols to write everything what I've learned with those amazing yoga teachers and just beautiful human beings. I just hope, that we meet again during our common yoga journey in the future. Highly recommend Savujya Yoga and am sure, you won't regret it 😉

The knowledge and inspiration I gained from my 200hr YTT with Prutha and Hardik in Nepal was life changing. I am so glad I chose them as my teachers and really appreciate their passion, commitment to ongoing learning and emphasis on a safe, inclusive and accessible approach to yoga. I learnt so much about the mind and body and will weave my understanding of yogic philosophy into the way I live my life.

I had the incredible opportunity to embark on a life-changing journey with the Sayujya Yoga team, and it was an experience beyond compare. Prutha and Hardrik, the teachers, were not only the best I've ever encountered but also the epitome of patience and professionalism. Over the course of 28 days, I immersed myself in their TTC yoga program, and the transformation I witnessed in myself was nothing short of remarkable. Prutha and Hardrik's expertise and teaching methods surpassed all expectations, making each session enlightening and empowering. They guided us through every aspect of yoga with immense knowledge, passion, and a genuine desire to see us grow. The dedication and care that Prutha and Hardrik poured into their teaching was truly inspiring. They created a safe and supportive environment where I felt encouraged to push my boundaries and explore my full potential. Their ability to connect with each student individually and adapt to their unique needs was truly remarkable. Throughout the TTC program, I learned far more than I could have imagined. Prutha and Hardrik's depth of knowledge and their ability to convey complex concepts in an accessible manner made every class a treasure trove of wisdom. I developed a strong foundation in yoga asanas, philosophy, anatomy, and meditation, thanks to their guidance and expertise. But what truly sets the Sayujya Yoga team apart is their unwavering belief in their students. They saw the potential within each of us, encouraged us to challenge ourselves, and instilled in us the confidence to overcome any obstacles. Their constant support and belief in our abilities pushed us to achieve more than we ever thought possible. I cannot express enough gratitude for the Sayujya Yoga team and the impact they've had on my life. They have not only equipped me with the tools to deepen my yoga practice but have also instilled in me a passion for sharing this ancient wisdom with others. Prutha and Hardrik are not just teachers; they are mentors, inspirations, and true embodiments of the transformative power of yoga. If you're seeking a captivating, motivating, and life-altering yoga experience, I wholeheartedly recommend the Sayujya Yoga team. With them, you'll embark on a journey that will nurture your mind, body, and spirit, and leave you forever transformed.
