Yoga Education Training Society - Review
You can’t touch your toes? You are not flexible? You are not strong or patient? It does not matter. Everyone starts somewhere. Give yoga a try and control your breathing, move your body and find peace in this crazy life. Join the Yoga Education Training Society and find enlightenment.
The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit root "yuj", which means to yoke. Put the spirit and physical body together with simple movements. Yoga has evolved over thousands of years with a wide range of styles and disciplines. It can be practised by athletes, children, and seniors. It can be modified to suit your level of strength and flexibility. Yoga energises your body and calms your mind. Age does not matter or your physical capabilities. You should be doing Yoga whatever your current weight or fitness goals.
The Yoga Education Training Society is a registered and certified yoga society in holy and old city Varanasi. Their yoga instructor is Somit, who has been practising and teaching yoga for 12 years. He studied under his Guru and with hard discipline and determination. The centre is a non-profit organisation which offers free education for helpless kids. The idea is to enhance their lives and guide them to a better life. These children are slum dwellers or live on the street. They come from abusive parents or no parents at all and some have drug addictions. The main idea is to educate these children and make them feel safe and self-confident. They are given a lot of love so that they can stand on their own feet.
The Yoga Education Training Society offers free Yoga lessons to these kids. They also provide classes for adults separately. All levels of yoga training are taught here. The various forms are Hatha, Asthana, Vinyasa, Vikram, Kundalini, Raja, Pranayama, and Tantra. They also have a Yoga Teacher training programme, Ayurveda, Massage, Reiki, and language classes for Bengali, Hindi and other Indian languages. Students have to follow strict rules and regulation under guidance of the Yoga society. Enrol and do either a 4 hours class or 6 hours a day till you complete 120 hours. After completion they will provide a yoga certificate or license. The fees are very reasonable and range from a week to a month. There are accommodation facilities for travellers and volunteers who wish to work there.

Somit is doing a great job trying to support the poor kids in Varanasi by running a small school. While this is really nice, the guesthouse itself can be a difficult experience for the European traveler. We took the most expensive room they had. This was very poorly equipped and improvised. The bathroom was very small, with the shower in the middle of it, not separated in any way (not even a shower curtain) from the toilet. The food they serve is ok and the boat tour is very likely among the cheapest you can get in Varanasi.
My boyfriend and I spent four amazing days at Somit's guest house. He is incredibly kind and warm hearted. Somit not only supports travellers during their experience in Varanasi but is also constantly giving back to the community with his free education centers. We always had a smile while at the guest house - everyone there was amazingly welcoming and made us feel truly comfortable. Thank you for everything Somit!
We spent a few days here, our room is cozy and clean. Please note the AC rooms are on the 4th floor, but not an issue to us. We wished the WiFi is very faster. Not sure about Somit’s community service, we didn’t participate in any.
