  • Being a dancer I have been practicing yoga for quite some time, I thought I knew what yoga meant, but under guruji's (Alma) guidance, I rediscovered yoga and what it does to your mental and physical health. What I admire and is so unique about Alma ji, he not only teaches yoga but shares his experience, out of the 25 days that I practiced with him was such an enriching experience. Towards the end of each session, I would look forward to the stories, stories that cleanse your thoughts, stories that strengthen your inner self. A great way of imparting knowledge...Alma Ji, you are just amazing...

  • Taking part in Alma’s class was like being transported to a very special place of serenity and harmony with body and mind. I totally switched off from my busy mind and felt a real focus on every element of his teaching with his gentle and special ability in a kind, generous and unique way. It was such a lovely occasion and I very much recommend the experience to anyone of any ability, as Alma is there for us all ?

  • Alma’s yoga classes are addictive! I traveled to Varkala and I got up every morning for my 2 weeks there for his classes. Even the 108 Surya Namaskars on Christmas Day! His style is traditional; well-thought-out sequences of asanas and pranayama set the mood for the day. I’m so happy to have Alma as a friend and an experienced yoga teacher. Thoroughly recommended

  • Alma has a ”no bs”-approach to teaching yoga, making it all about the practice, and has taught me very much. He brings a lot of joy into his classes and focuses on the fundamentals - yet with an eye for details. He is a great teacher and the fact that he attends a new TTC every year shows how serious he is about teaching and how much he cares about his students.

  •   Alma Ji is one of the best teachers I have encountered on my spiritual journey through Yoga. His capacity to guide you firmly but gently towards the essence of your practice is one of a kind. With Alma, you will find determination, knowledge, and structure, but also kindness, love, and compassion. His ability to combine these indispensable ingredients together in amusement with his funny jokes is what makes his teachings special. You will not learn only about yoga, but precious life lessons to be cherished.
