About Abhinam Yoga Center , Panaji
Abhinam Yoga Center organizes Yoga Alliance US and UK certified 200, 300 and 500 hour teacher training courses. We aim to teach the subject of yoga as a whole by not only focusing on asanas but also including philosophy, meditation, anatomy, physiology, mantra chanting and teaching methodology.
Abhinam Yoga Center has been started with the approach that a good teacher is one who is capable of being a good student. Yoga is a lifelong learning process; it is a life-style and demands a very humble, open and innocent mind. The word yoga has become synonymous with physical exercise in the west and it has adopted gym culture. Yoga has turned into a “do and die” culture. Abhinam Yoga School differs with the current fashionable and popular presentation of yoga. We are committed to bring back the true essence of yoga which is reflected in Yoga Sutra of Patanjali and other yoga scriptures. Our aim is to make yoga teachers aware of the eight limbs of Ashtanga yoga and practice without any injury.Abhinam Yoga Center also organizes yoga holiday packages, workshops for beginners and retreats. Our highly qualified team has years of experience and aim to teach in a very supportive, open and safe environment.

The teacher training experience was truly one of its kind. The teacher’s knowledge is so vast, that it motivates you to keep pushing yourself hard and try to learn as much as you can. The course is intense but fun and managed very professionally. The focus on yoga philosophy has really impacted me for the rest of my life. It is a safe place to seek, explore, and learn. I have been teaching very confidently since completing my training course and will continue to share this collective joy and love of yoga with whoever I come across
I finished my 200 hr Ashtanga teacher training with Asan Yoga/ Abhinam Yoga school yesterday and a summary of my experience hopefully makes it easier for you to decide whether it is the right school for you. I had completed another 200hr Hatha Yoga training with another school in India and thus maybe came with certain expectations but definitely with something to which I can compare this school. The positive The school promises to teach “Ashtanga Yoga with Iyengar Alignment” and they definitely hold their promise. Correct alignment was a key factor during the led-classes and in our teaching methodology classes. They went so far as to change the leg position in warrior 1/ virabhradasana A to omit a potential twisting of the knee and add an additional psoas stretch. I learned a lot and feel very confident to offer an alignment workshop based on the asanas in the Ashtanga Primary Series. I have learned a number of ways to use props to intensify asanas or make them more accessible (which I did not know much about before, because traditional Ashtanga rejects the idea of using props) The negative Even though the training was labeled an “Ashtanga Teacher Training”, I feel not confident to teach a led-class in a regular Ashtanga studio for a number of reasons: o The sequence they thought us and insisted we use differed from the original Primary Series (fewer vinyasas (and somehow randomly deleted) o They insisted on different opening and closing chants o The vinyasa count was never mentioned, nor was it taught to us Secondly, the study atmosphere was not conductive to learning. o I was called “a fu***ing bi***” and told to leave the shala by one of the junior teachers because I did not sit still in meditation. (To be fair to her, I had been awfully obnoxious by openly displaying my displeasure with the way the course was run, daydreaming rather than mediating and thus challenging the staff’s authority. That being said, it did not justify her outburst.) When fellow students insisted on discussing the incident later, the senior teacher told us her reaction was appropriate and called for and we were not to talk about it any more. I never received an apology. o The two hour asana practice was not a led-class in the way you may have experienced led-classes but a repeatedly interrupted process where they taught us each and every asana in small steps and very rarely created a flow - great if you are an absolute beginner, excruciatingly boring if you know what you are doing. Mind you, I am very far from perfect and hugely benefited from going over the poses. However, I do not think sacrificing the only two hours of actual asana practice was an elegant solution. Especially, when there were many hours in each day where we just sat around doing nothing. o Namito, the head teacher, used our morning practice time to separately train his newest staff member in a corner of the shala. They would do different exercises, move around the room a lot and he would often give her quite audible instructions. He frequently called the other teachers over to observe him, leaving us without an instructor. I found this very distracting. And finally, the last reason why I would not recommend this TTC is that you do not get what you pay for. o The course encompasses much less than 200 hours. It ended up being more like 117 hours of actual instruction; clearly less than what we had paid for. o Their website promises a daily evening Hatha/ Yin/ Vinyasa etc. session that just does not take place. For all the reasons mentioned above, I would not recommend Abhinam Yoga School (and its brach members Asan Yoga and Mantra Yoga) to anyone. There are better yoga schools out there that help you deepen your own practice, equip you with better teaching tools and will have you come away happy that you did it.
Completed my 5 day workshop last month. I had an amazing experience with these wonderful teachers. Theya re all so loving, patient and helpful. Being a beginner, I learnt so much about ashtanga yoga practice and how to use props. I hope to continue my home practice and come back soon for my TTC.
Professionalism, talent and lots of love ... I instinctively chose Abhinam School with 300 hours course to complete my 500 hours and was one of the smartest decisions of my life! A Course in Abhinam help you to understand and to go deep in modern life yoga... Teachers, Deepika, Maki and Alina are really inspiring, professional and full of love for their teaching and their students. Abhinam course is an instant change of life and the big Master Namito is a gift for the world! Thank you from the heart! Namastè
I started my year off doing the 200 TTC course and I learnt so much more than I expected to, not just the technical side of yoga but I learnt alot about myself and I can say it was one of the best experiences of my life :)
