From the first contact I had with Kesheva about coming to Sarvaguna Yoga Dhaama to undertake my 200hr yoga teacher training I knew that this was going to be a great experience.
The school focuses on holistic healing and self-awareness, teaching traditional Hatha yoga and modern Vinyasa practices along with philosophy and meditation.
The location is amazing, the view is incredible. The food is delicious and the cooks are so kind and friendly and willing to accommodate food restrictions and allergies.
It can be difficult trying to narrow the field when you are looking to complete a YTT, but these guys deserve to be your top pick!
This Ashram is absolutely amazing!!! simple and short: Keshava and Satish really inspired me with their understanding of Yoga, their advice and support with Meditation and the Asana practices! i never expected to grow as much as i did within this month regarding my Asana practice, Philosophy about life in general and myself! i can highly recommend this place to everyone!
And about the Location: it’s perfectly located! we went to the Beach every day during lunch break it’s like 3 walking minutes away! you can see the beautiful sunsets during meditation on the Terrace where we also did our Asanas!
i can’t wait to discover Sarvaguna Yoga in Dharamsala maybe for my 300 YTT!!
PS: you don’t need google- if you have Dr. Keshava
This ashram is amazing (Goa), it’s not super strict, the food is AMAZING, the yoga room/terrace is just perfect, the asana teachers are both super experienced and full of knowledge that they are trying to give us in a very short amount of time. Keshava is one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, helped with everything we needed and patiently brought us to a state where we could actually enjoy a meditation. He is like a living encyclopaedia, no need for google anymore! Full of love kindness and knowledge of philosophy and life in general. If you are looking for a high class hatha & vinyasa yoga teacher training, for a place where you can reflect and learn about the real yoga practise, some time to find out who you really are and soaking in the energy that surrounds those people at Sarvaguna, then this is the place! I will definitely come back here if I will do my 300hrs advanced teacher training in the next couple of years! I heard the school in Daramasala is very special too, can’t wait to find out:)
Working with Keshava and Sarvanguna Yoga has been a life changing experience. I learnt techniques and practices that have provided me with a deeper understanding of yoga and meditation. These practices have given me beautiful experiences of clarity and connection. I studied the 100hour meditation teacher training and I am now teaching meditation regularly. It has been wonderful to be able to pass on these practical and effective techniques. Keshava and the Sarvanguna team provided a safe and supportive environment in which to gain knowledge and a qualification. The study I have done with Sarvanguna Yoga has enriched my life on a very deep level and has allowed me to experience more Joy and peace than ever before. I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to deepen their practice and understanding of Yoga and Meditation.

I had a wonderful experience at the 200h teacher training in Goa. The location is like paradise, with the rooms a 3-minute walk to the beach. There are also shops nearby for touristy trinkets, however there was no need to shop much as all the basic necessities were provided. The food was a nice mix of Indian vegetarian meals, served three times a day for breakfast, dinner and lunch. The training consisted of separate classes for asana practice, yoga anatomy and yoga philosophy. The teachers were amazing, all very knowledgeable in their area of the coursework. It was a structured course but there was flexibility as well as required. Everybody was really down-to-earth and authentic, leading by example. I also took Reiki Level 1 with Keshava, a 3 day course. I would highly recommend Keshava for a reiki session or reiki training, as well as the 200h yoga training. I feel lucky to have found this school!
I had a fantastic, inspiring 4 weeks on the 200 hour yttc at Sarvaguna yoga school in goa! The location is beautiful and the food was delicious. I really recommend the course to anybody who wants an authentic experience of traditional hatha yoga
I completed the 2 weeks Meditation Teacher Training in December and have benefited greatly from the experience. Keshava who runs the Centre and leads the course has deep knowledge and experience of traditional meditation practices and philosophy. He is very committed and passionate about the learning of each of his students. The small groups enable some flexibility and tailoring of the course to our needs and interests. Keshava willingly answers questions and has a good sense of humour; he is open minded and empowers us to be creative and intuitive in teaching meditation. After the first week I was serene and blissful. However, not being a yoga teacher I found 2 weeks of sitting physically challenging and given the option I would do a week at a time. Nevertheless, this was a powerful and transformative experience for me and one from which I will continue to draw from in the months and years to come.Wow
I would highly recommend this school to people who want to gain profound knowledge and spiritual guidance in Yoga philosophy and meditation science from the leader of this traditional school Dr. Keshava Murty who started his studies already in 1998 and spend 8 years in monasteries with his Master Swami Dayananda from Rishikesh. Keshava is one the little teachers who I met in my personal studies as a Yoga coach and studio owner who humbly combine excellent experience and down to earth explanations with refreshing humor and comfort in his school. School is placed on the south side of Agonda village, it’s walking distance from the main restaurants but in a quiet place, close to the beautiful rocks. Home-cooked food here is the better than I ate in any restaurant in Agonda. This place is for you if you appreciate time the excellent teacher who takes for your personal guidance, experienced yoga teachers, good quantity of the food, comfortable rooms and view of the beach from the yoga space roof top. Enjoy!
I will highly recommend you to go to Sarvaguna Yoga, a place with a warm, friendly welcoming atmosphere where smiles thrive:) Class instructions are easy to follow, yet challenging, rewarding and softly corrected by vey competent teachers. Location set in beautiful Agonda Beach Goa. If you seek for inner peace, self awareness, higher consciousness, you know, that calm state of mind, your thoughts persistently try to stir up, let Dr. Keshava guide your meditation practice and feel the lasting change, like I have, since I did a week long meditation retreat this February. I meditate daily, know using the different tecniques I was taught and I’m so going back to do the Meditation teacher training very soon. Namaste Charlotte, Denmark
The MTTC with Sarvaguna Yoga in Dharamsala was a very enriching experience, wich I totally reccomend to everybody who is looking for a good environment to Meditate and learn many and good techniques of Relaxation and Meditation for ourselves and to bring to others.
Sarvaguna Yoga School is an incredible school to study at. The teaching, guest house and knowledge gained were above my expectations. I highly recommend this yoga school to anyone interested in yoga teacher training, yoga philosophy or meditation.

Sarvaguna Yoga Dhaama is a gorgeous place, in Agonda Beach, India. We could see and hear the ocean from the school and is surrounded by palm trees. Teachers are excellent, they gently but firmly coaxed all of us into being better yoga teachers, and made us realize we could do it. As the course progressed, my confidence grew and I realized, with the encouragement of my teachers, that I had what it takes to be a yoga teacher. I’m hungry to know more and I look forward to my lessons every day. I highly recommend Sarvaguna Yoga Dhaama School to everyone!!!!!
They have, very knowledgeable and loving teachers, who are there to offer you everything. It is a school where you can find kindness, knowledge, love, peace, dedication, everything that you need to learn about Yoga… The best experience ever!!!! I can’t wait to go back… You should go and try it!!!
I highly recommend this school and this place!!! Thanks to one of the best teacher I ever had- Keshava is an inspiration; truly kind, funny, full of knowledge which he wants to share. The classes are small, the shala is big, the surrounding is quiet with a lovely view.
Very professional, a fabulous opportunity to enjoy and learn. Loved it and can’t wait to meet again!
Authentic approach. Good mixture of Vedantic tradition with modern attitude of Yoga. Course is focused on Hatha style and also allowing to bring variety through Vinyasa, Yin. You can challenge yourself with deep long morning meditations, pranayama and mantra chanting. The place to stay is away from noisy center and at the same 5-7 minutes away. It’s located up the hill opening into stunning view over the valley. I love this place. Rooms are big and clean. Keshava is kind and flexible but also strongly devoted to the course. Best place to learn yoga in Himalayas!
“It was a pure delight to be taught by Keshava. His vast knowledge of yoga philosophy is outstanding. Always being patient, taking the time to explain yogic traditions and beliefs. He has a special aura and constant smile which makes everyone immediately want to listen to him. Kesheva thank you for teaching me to stay in the present and for showing me that if you think good thoughts everyday they will shine out of you like sunbeams.”
“The Yamas and Niyamas always remind me of Keshava, with a broad smile and simplicity explaining those principles in a way anyone could understand he has the qualities of a true teacher.”
Even though I was practicing yoga for over six years, I never actually came closer to what the word yoga really meant and its philosophy until attending Keshava course during my TTC in India. His lessons opened my mind and my heart and gave me the first tools to approach Pranayama and Meditation, basic and fundamental steps for a yogi. His lessons changed my practice, but mostly made possible a shift in my mind that brought real changes in my daily life that overcome the physical practice to leave space for deeper and inner spiritual growth..
A fantastic school to learn from some amazing teachers in yoga and meditation. Thoroughly enjoyable and would recommend to anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of true traditions and practice of yoga
