“I am very glad to have been able to participate in Yogapoint’s TTC program. I joined this program not planning to become an instructor but to be able to deepen my understanding of yoga. This has been an especially valuable experience as I have been able to study with expert instructors from India, Australia and Singapore.
Yogapoint has a home atmosphere with small sized classes, supported by many volunteers. Because of this, I felt that it was easy to join in and feel part of the group, allowing me to grow my confidence and study to deepen my understanding of yoga.
I am not very good at English and was very nervous when I joined, however, with the help from John and all of my fellow participants, it made me feel very welcomed. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone.
I would highly recommend Yogapoint to anyone who is considering studying yoga.”
“Properly understanding what yoga really is with loads of support is most important to me. I found the right place and teachers to help me with that. Yogapoint is more than just a studio. Family oriented,supportive and source of knowledge. I found my balance and support here. Thank you Yogapoint Singapore.”
“After years of practising yoga, I felt I needed to deepen my knowledge of yoga. I wanted to learn traditional form of yoga and nothing too commercial. I was hunting around for the right school and found that Yogapoint is located also in Singapore! I was so excited as I have heard so many great reviews about their Teacher training in India but did not realise they actually have a centre here in Singapore. I signed up for Yogapoint TTC5 and loved every minute of it. I have learnt so much from our teachers and also Guruji who flew in to Singapore to share yogic knowledge with us! I have met so many nice people and everyone is like family and always ready to help. John who runs the centre here is the most patient and calm teacher I ever met! He also has a very wide knowledge of trigger point therapy skill. Being in TTC5 has been a memorable one. I have learnt and grown as a student and am sure that I will not get that same experience somewhere else in Singapore.”
“Teacher training course with Yogapoint has been a fulfilling and enriching journey. I had doubt of taking the course initially, even though I was passionate about Yoga, I was not a good practitioner. However, in this course it is explained thoroughly the true form of Yoga and it is something that can be practiced by anyone.
The teachers are very resourceful and supportive. During 200 hours of learning session, I grew from their guidance and other TTC teammates’ kind support. The teachers are fully committed to the students, friendly and very knowledgable. In Yogapoint, continuous learning and go with the flow are the recommended path— I gradually improved without overexerting myself and looking back, I am really glad that I joined the course.”
“I have had the great pleasure of attending many of John’s yoga lessons. It is a joy to practice Yoga with him and his knowledge, passion and love of Yoga is ever present in his teaching. One always leaves his class with richer in yoga knowledge and breathing awareness. John constantly reminds me as a student that there is such depth and breath within Yoga, and he is an outstanding Teacher and guided us all to explore the essence well being of Yoga.
My understanding and appreciation of Yoga has broadened greatly when I attended the 1st TCC Yoga Course in Singapore. The courses have given me a deep indepth of different prospectives of yoga. It has benefited me in many ways. Special mention to my teachers from India and course mate who are friendly and nice to be around with. I look forward to many years of practicing yoga and hope one day will become a Yoga teacher to impart this knowledge i"ve learned to someone.”
“Having had to make the big decision of which yoga school to choose and where, i ended up stumbling upon Yogapoint (Yoga Vidya Gurukul) with Guruji Yogacharya Dr Vishwas Mandik, John Peh, Gandhar Mandlik & Dr. Prafulla Dorle as my teachers. The yoga journey was amazing, challenging and fun. All teachers are professional in their approach and generously shared their wisdom in a compassionate and friendly manner. The course is intense and certainly challenging at times, yet the positivity of the teachers inspired and helped me. I learned a lot on many levels during the training. I would highly recommend this training to others who want to deepen their knowledge of yoga and immerse themselves in an awakening experience.”
“It was a beautiful journey taking up TTC. Positive ambience, supportive course mates, humble, patient, caring and experienced trainers, with occasional simple yet yummy homecooked food.. this is the perfect place for anyone (including beginners just like I was) who are interested to deepen the holistic and healing knowledge of yoga.
Through TTC, not only have I Improved on physical aspects, I am also able to connect my body and mind more intimately thereby improving my health. I truly enjoy each guided baby steps we took on every weekend that shaped us up!
Thank you, John and Kathy, for the support, teaching and taking such a good care of us. I would definitely recommend doing TTC with Yogapoint.”
“I completed my Yoga Teachers Training course in 2017 with Yogapoint Singapore. The 3 months of weekly training has helped to kickstart my journey toward self-development. Even after graduation, my learning journey continues through mentorship and activities with the Yogapoint family.
The best thing I gained from completing the course is the ability to conduct classes for others. I find myself a student once more, not to an education course, but to life itself. TTC has given me a solid foundation to be able to stand up to life's challenges and learn from it.”
