What Our Students Say…

 Kavitha Vaidyanathan-Batch 268D (2018)

Kavitha Vaidyanathan-Batch 268D (2018)

“I find the content and structure of YICC is very useful and balanced. It includes Asanas, Kriyas, Pranayamas and philosophy of Yoga. The teachers’ delivery on the topics is very good. Instructions are clear while correcting postures. It really helped me in achieving maximum benefits. The staff is friendly. The best part that I liked is the encouragement to progress in the Yogasanas practice. 8 steps teaching method is right way to achieve the posture. Our confidence in teaching is built in this way.

“The YICC content is very broad and touching many topics, some of them going deeper, some giving a good overview. Whether it was theory by Manoj, practice with Shivani and Kuldeep, all give a certain way to transmit Yoga and inspiration for my future yoga teaching. They provide good tips and share their knowledge with us. They are supported very well by other assistant teachers. I would like to suggest some modifications in the notes to go along with the text book regarding asanas. It would also be great to have detailed discussion on the 120 hrs report and work sheets, assignments etc. Even if all these things are mentioned to us, we tend to lose track on that considering the amount of information we receive within a month! Administration is efficient from registration to class organization to maintenance of the classrooms. Overall it was great learning experience. Received a lot of knowledge on a wide range of topics. It was good immersion into Yoga, the concepts, definitions, practices. I learned a lot about myself during this course. I can balance my emotions. Thanks everyone for the great support.!

“The content of the program is very appropriate, and the delivery is also good. Manoj ji made sure we understood the topics fully. For better effect and understanding of the whole course, having Pranayama and Kriya early in the sequence of topics is what I would recommend. Some philosophies are complex and need more references for better understanding. The course has been helpful to know where I was and what changes in me. With this awareness my sleep is deeper, and breathing is longer than before. I have made friends with common interest. I wish I was able to observe more of my spiritual changes.

“YICC program is complete. Philosophy of Yoga is interesting to learn. You learn from knowledgeable teachers. Extremely good quality of teaching practical. Just that I struggled with 8 step method and would have liked more simpler method for teaching asana.

“Content of YICC was very helpful, mostly everything was covered very nicely. I felt interested and motivated towards Yoga practice. All the teachers were great! Manoj ji explained the topics accurately and till we could properly understand it. Shivani ji also corrected the postures and guided us throughout. Admin staff is very helpful, and kind hearted. We were reminded of the sessions and schedule time to time. Our doubts were cleared. I had fun learning at Vyasa as everything was done systematically. I felt energetic and motivated to do Yoga. I really look forward to learning more from Vyasa courses.

“YICC at Vyasa is extremely good as the syllabus has background of philosophy, history and schools of Yoga. I learnt a huge amount and it has opened my mind to Yoga practice. The teachers are very knowledgeable, warm and kind; ensuring that students understand. The pace of training is good, and the level of discipline is maintained with remarkable authority. The students feel relaxed yet on track. The admin team is great. They make good use of WhatsApp groups to keep students well informed. Questions are always answered promptly and efficiently.
I wish we had more time for demonstration. I began the course with a good understanding of asanas. I needed to learn the other aspects which were lacking in my practice. This course gave me mat and much more. Now I can incorporate Yoga into my daily life. I am becoming more aware of my body and my mind with routine practice. I know how to perform it to benefit my general health. I have observed many changes and will continue to do so as I practice more and more.

“I feel YICC at Vyasa Yoga is structured and comprehensive. Manoj ji is very knowledgeable and clear in delivering the theories/concepts. Even the ones which are very difficult concepts, he gives good, interesting examples to ensure student understand the topic well. All the teachers are very patient and give clear, concise and precise instructions to the students; be it theory or practical. The course provides detailed step by step guide that help students in the learning. Vyasa Yoga allows flexibility in course timing to cater to the needs of the student. The environment of Vyasa Yoga Centre is beautiful and conducive for Yoga practice. The classes are relaxing and fun, which would not have been possible without the participation of the teachers, assistants, and classmates. The assignments, reports, presentation and written exam that are part of course, help students to deepen their understanding. I enjoyed this journey. So happy to have signed up for the YICC and being a part of Vyasa family. Thanks to Manoj, Shivani, Kuldeep, all the assistant teachers and batchmates for creating such a wonderful experience!

“Content of YICC is extensive and insightful. Course structure is systematic, easy to follow, good to use to teach Yoga for beginners and even advance students. 8 step teaching method helps to correct posture and clear doubts which other external Yoga class does not provide. Manoj gives examples, analogy for more abstract theory, tries to use simple words to let us understand better. Shivani is very patient in demonstrating asanas. She corrects us and clears our doubts with patience. This YICC course is too short to fully understand what Yoga is. Hope that Vyasa will organize a 3D/2N Yoga Retreat in future.
Due to the stressful work nature, I have looked up on Yoga as a destressing tool. I have used asanas during pregnancy to reduce discomfort and back pain. I wanted to escape the stressful lifestyle and embrace Yoga. Thus, I began to search for courses online and found Vyasa Yoga’s YICC. I have realised that Yoga is the way I have been searching for. It is not an exercise, but a way to enlightenment. I know this journey is not easy and with guidance of Guru, courage and fearless attitude, I decided to embark on this spiritual journey.

Yumi Jodai- Batch 253E (2018)

“At YICC I learned that Yoga is not only Asana, but Asana can drive me deep into life energy. The practice of Yoga also helps in knowing what is important in life. As I study more, I can see benefits of Yoga in many ways. I already was practising Yoga before I joined YICC at Vyasa and knew that my body & mind could be refreshed by Yoga. But What I did was still an exercise only! Now I understand well that Yoga is a way of life. I am happy that I met wonderful teachers, batchmate as friends here at school. I hope to continue my Yoga Journey!

“I loved the way we were greeted on the first day of the course with Vyasa Yoga tote bag which carried text book and notebook. I could see how much Mr. Manoj cared for students. He is always helpful and gave us interesting stories apart from class contents. He held outing on Deepavali day even if it was special day for him. Teachers taught us in understandable way. I am confident now that I have learnt real authentic Yoga at Vyasa Yoga. I wish much more clear translation for Japanese batch. But still Ms. Emiko is amazing and helped us a lot. Admin staff also is friendly and always smiling. It is so kind of them to keep stock of biscuits, tea, coffee at the classrooms.

“The content of YICC is very compact and complete. It covers all the aspects of Instructors’ training very nicely. The knowledge of subtle points is imparted which is very much helpful. All the teachers are very good. It has been quite a journey of rigorous asana training with intense lectures. I can feel the transformation already. I made a lot of new friends of diverse backgrounds and nationalities. The experience was very enriching.

“YICC at Vyasa Yoga is very much useful. I learned a lot about Yoga. The 80 hrs were excellent, and I acquired great knowledge on Yoga theory. I also feel good changes in my physical body. I am more flexible and there is greater awareness. All is good. It would be better if time management can be improved.

“YICC course was very complete and allowed us to learn aspects of Yoga that were new, Pranayama & Kriyas. The teachers at Vyasa Yoga are wonderful. I enjoyed all the classes of Manoj, Shivani, Kuldeep and Ruchica. The delivery was fun and inspiring as well. The administration was flawless.
I would have liked to have more time for the second set of Asanas which Kuldeep did his best in given time. The course went very well; in fact, beyond my expectations. My wish to get a comprehensive overview on Yoga was fulfilled. Although there is still so much to learn, I feel at least I have full picture of the main components of Yoga.
At the course I also met with a group of wonderful people, that I look forward to deepening my practice with.

“YICC at Vyasa is just appropriate for beginners as well as for people who have been practicing Yoga. It gives clear Knowledge of Yoga.
Teachers are excellent. Manoj ji’s lectures are very informative and full of knowledge. Shivani ji and Kuldeep are great as teacher. They explained and taught us everything in detail.
I am happy that I finally could join this excellent course. I had wonderful batchmates with whom I enjoyed this journey thoroughly. The course has expanded my knowledge and I can now understand Yoga from different angles. The experience was great, and I look forward to continuing this journey and enjoy more!

Admin staff is always helpful. I am truly glad I chose to take YICC at Vyasa. Location is great, people are lovely. I like my classmates too. Content of the course is scientifically backed. I definitely feel that I have learnt and benefited from the Course.

“YICC was interesting. Different topics were covered. Great teachers and their perspectives and delivery was much appreciative. The administration was very supportive and kept communication in group which made it easy for us too.
I wish for a better time management at the beginning of the course; as we had to really speed up for the last week. If possible, make the outing for a full day + 1 night to enjoy even more.
Overall it was a great experience and our group of classmates was amazing and friendly. The outing allowed us to know each other more and become real Yogi friends. Teachers highly encouraged solidarity in our group of classmates. It was more than just a Yoga Teacher Training. The whole journey and the process of learning was so enjoyable!

Emiko Kataoka- Batch 263D (2018)

“I loved the philosophy of Yoga covered in YICC. You feel at home when you are at Vyasa Yoga. This friendly, cosy atmosphere makes YICC so much effective place of learning! Each teacher has unique point to make. These different approaches give extra dimension which is good to get thorough understanding of the topic.
The administration was quick in response and the information given was clear. Truly appreciate it.
Only thing I wish that we were given a monthly or weekly schedule which would have made time planning easier for us.
I am quite satisfied with the program for the 80hrs classroom training and I believe that Vyasa’s teachers and staff will help me achieve my 120 hrs towards field work.
I have faith in Vyasa school as it is an established entity and always supports students in any kind of situation.
I really enjoyed each class. Teachers are so interesting that gives me motivation. Thank you very much!

“On internet I found very good reviews on Vyasa Yoga.
YICC was excellent and easy to understand. Yoga Asana demonstrations were very helpful in learn. It was interesting to know about the theory of postures.
I wish we had the soft copies of the same slides from the physical folder which was given to us during training.
All Instructors were very helping and always ready to clarify our doubts. I feel lucky to have gained lovely friends during my YICC.

“YICC was authentic and the content was meaningful. Master Manoj was quite inspiring, and one could sense his passion and devotion towards Yoga. He himself is a role model as a trainer and very much grounded in the class which is very important. Shivani was very meticulous and able to suggest modifications knowing the body type. Ruchica & Kuldeep were fantastic and always encouraged us. They gave valuable advice in the practice and asked us to respect our body limitations. Valeria had great energy and was ever willing to answer our questions.
For me, YICC was quite humbling and inspiring. The seed of growth is planted and the sense of inquiry also kind of initiated. I am grateful for the confidence given to us from the very first day of zero knowledge on Yoga to 30 days of training where awareness is built to great extent.
I believe that people meet for a reason and I am so happy and thankful for the safe and conducive leaning space offered at Vyasa Yoga. Journey has started.

“YICC was certainly relevant. I have found it very compressed and look forward to deepening the knowledge and experiencing it thoroughly. All teachers are very experienced and have a lot of knowledge to share. I would appreciate a summary of the training plan for the month in advance.
As I had just recovered from a kidney infection, I felt the training quite taxing physically. I might have underestimated the strain this intense Yoga will have on my body. Regarding the theory learnt, I am confident & look forward to deepening my knowledge.
All in all, it felt very rushed through and I found it hard to put in the required effort due to my health. I wonder if I can be healed by Yoga practice and so looking forward to process all that information and experience it for myself and with students.

“YICC content is very thorough given the short time of course. It covers lot many topics. Master Manoj ji always makes learning very interesting with real life anecdotes, funny stories and his own experiences. Shivani ji goes into details of techniques for learning postures and other practical topics. Kuldeep ji is very good in both theory & practice. He gives extra information which is beyond the scope. Administration is very helpful and efficient.
I wish to have learnt some more postures in the course which will be useful when I start to teach.
In all it has been a wonderful experience. Vyasa I s like one big family. I got to meet so many wonderful people like my batchmates and teachers. The best part is that this relationship does not end after 4 weeks’ classroom training. You can keep coming here for classes. Each class allows us to learn so much more.

“YICC content is interesting in terms of philosophy. In respect of anatomy I expected in depth syllabus. All the teachers were good in Yoga knowledge by their own way and were able to hold my attention throughout the course. The admin staff is generally very pleasant and try to be helpful. I feel that some procedures need improvement.
I have become more passionate and inclined to follow the path of Yoga. I wish to help others on this path too.
As I apply the principles and perform Yoga asanas, I feel I am improving, and my family members are also benefiting.
By participating in International Day of Yoga activities I learned a lot and feel more committed towards spreading this knowledge to my friends and others in communities.

“I found the content of this course to be fantastic. All teachers are amazing, and they have different styles of delivery. Being a small group of students gave us great opportunity to ask lot of questions and understand the topics more. Overall administration was very organized, and the staff was quick in responding and giving information. I felt our course was a bit rushed. It was most likely due to two public holidays and International Yoga Day/ week.
I enjoyed this course a lot. I learned more than I thought I will. It was very good to be part of International Yoga Day and to observe all the activities. I am very proud to be part of Vyasa Yoga.

“The content of YICC was better than expected. It opened a whole new level of understanding about the philosophy and psychological, mental and spiritual outcomes and how we can manage our lives, grow, heal and teach. A very nice summary of deep subjects which also allows for further research. The experience with the teachers made it for me. The administration was great and very helpful and kind. Nice balance of formal and informal. A lot of laughter. As an improvement, I would say that during teaching and throughout class there should be stress on the benefits and limitations of each posture more, to force students to understand the postures better if they must describe them. Helps to be able to group them accordingly.
I learnt so much about myself and the
choices/journey I have been going through. My sleep has improved as a result of the changes in thoughts as well as better understanding of the people in my life.
The whole Vyasa team are lovely and so kind, and the combined experience makes it a very deep learning experience. I can say that this course/Manoji have changed my life. I am very grateful (and not very often sleep deprived anymore!!)

“The content of YICC was very useful, very informative and a great lessons program. The teachers are very nice and helpful, they thought about us. Their teaching is very informative. I like how we can be relaxed and have a flexible schedule, no stress, to come in the centre. It was very interesting to come here every day for the past month. I liked how we bonded with each other and became a group of friends and learnt together. The teachers were very flexible with us, not putting too much pressure on us and it was pleasant to be in the class and everyday looking forward to coming to the centre.

“I loved the content of YICC. It’s very informative and a lot of knowledge. All the topics help and inspire me to dig deeper and ask questions to myself and to know more about me. The delivery of the programme by the teacher was wonderful and with a vast amount of knowledge. The admin was good, helpful and very kind. I have enjoyed the journey with YICC so far and I am sure I will still enjoy in the future as well. I came to YICC to bring my mind & body together and for now after YICC, I am on the right track. YICC has answered so many questions of mine (which were lying inside). This has openened a new dimension to my life which is much broader, brighter and blissful and this spills into my everyday life. The way I am, the way I am with my kid, my family and people around me.

“YICC content was excellent. Much broader than I expected. It has expanded my horizons and for that I am grateful. The teachers each have their own strength. Manoj is entertaining and full of knowledge. He is a paragon of humility and enthusiasm. Shivani has mastered the art of precise delivery and quiet encouragement. Prashant is a model for yoga as a way of life and Kuldeep makes anyone feel capable at even difficult asanas. The administration was efficient and welcoming. Flexible to needs and timing. I very much enjoyed my experience. Most significantly I feel like I have found a way of life that has already helped me clear my head, improve my health and strengthen my body in ways nothing else has done. I am inspired so, thank you.

Overall experience was great we had limited participants so it was nice to share energy & gain from their experiences group practices were great way to collaborate and there was some training given on how to conduct classes however there should be more emphasis given on how to handle the class.

It was very nice to know so many things about yog.which otherwise I feel not easy to grasp just by reading theory .manoj ji sure help us bring positivity about the way we think about our life
Very importantly I always feel s-vyasa as is a family where they help you attain your goals how much ever basics they are . s- vyasa has a friendly culture ,which allows us to develop confidence in a yoga ,as a beginner I can say it was very good it was not just the postures but we tried to learn many other aspects which definitely helped to bring basic ,feel & awareness about Yog. Group practice, assisting demonstrating helps a lot, teachers are encouraging ,supportive and very good to help to clear our small small doubts I was bit worried about my flexibility but now positive just because our teachers never get aggressive .about administration good co-ordination ,systematic not only office administration .but overall communication through whatsapp etc , its very good.

“The content for YICC is comprehensive and detailed. I did not have any trouble understanding the facts and found the content very much interesting. Master Manoj ji gave the insights of Yoga, Shivani ji demonstrated and explained each and every Asana with precision; while John was very conducive about depths of every aspect of our learning Journey. Everything was pre planned and executed accordingly. I joined the Course with the intention to become a Yoga Instructor but apart from the Yoga learning I have learnt how to be better person. The ability to explain Asanas and their benefits while taking Yoga class has improved my teaching skills. Outdoor learning experience was full of life and fun. There are no words to express how much wisdom I have gained. Overall I enjoyed every lesson at Vyasa so much so that I looked forward to each learning day with great enthusiasm.

He uses so many real-life examples related to the topic. At the beginning I was uncertain if the program is suitable to me. But with Manoj ji’s encouragement and support I decided to continue. And I feel very glad to learn Yoga in Vyasa with Mr Manoj. Thank you….

Master Manoj Ji corrects and requests to do adjustment in a kind way. He communicates with his students in a way that is engaging and fun. Administration is very kind and very helpful.
I can’t even express how much the training meant to me and I truly am so happy to have embarked on the journey with Vyasa Yoga Singapore. It has helped me physically and spiritually. I am very inspired to do my very best to contribute to society as there are so many useful techniques learnt during the Course.

I know that Yoga is something I/we should do every day for achieving balance and therefore bliss. Thank you for the unconditional care and tolerance.

“Yoga is not only talking about flexibility of body, it involves Pranayama, mind…””Hot Yoga that is not Yoga, it is exercise!”This is what Manoj told me during the day I came to get more information about YICC. Manoj is a very great Yoga teacher. He is so confident to his teaching and philosophy of Yoga. He is patient to answer your question. I have never regretted to know him.
Ms. Shivani is another great Yoga teacher. She teaches the 8 steps teaching method to conduct the practical class. It is really fun and I can easily understand the Asana movement, mistake, benefit and limitations and correction. I gained a lot of knowledge and confidence of doing postures from her class. “

“I liked the content of YICC very much! It was complete in presentation and provided background to the great wealth of knowledge Yoga can offer…Master Manoj conducted the class in a way not to overwhelm the students relatively new to Yoga. Vyasa Yoga Centre is very welcoming… very professional yet also keen to improve continuously. I felt as if I almost joined a community of an enlarged family! I simply loved attending YICC! I am so much thankful to Master Manoj for allowing me to attend sessions for the following batches as I missed 5 classes due to travel and other engagements… Overall becoming part of the Vyasa Yoga Singapore’s student’s community has been a great experience.”

Shermaine Tan BATCH-206 (2014)

Shermaine Tan BATCH-206 (2014)


The content is very comprehensive and allows us to gain a deeper understanding of the true meaning of Yoga. The topics that we have learnt help us to develop the rationale for doing certain postures or techniques. The teachers are knowledgeable, patient, helpful and caring. They never fail to ensure that students have attained a very good understanding of the concept before moving on.

The entire Corse has shaded light on many aspects of Yoga that generally people fail to notice and know about. Yoga is practiced as an exercise without proper knowledge of its purpose or meaning… However the Course has given a better understanding regarding postures and their therapeutic properties.”

 Karen BATCH-208 (2014)

Karen BATCH-208 (2014)


YICC at Vyasa Yoga is especially useful in terms of providing a glimpse of the huge Yoga Knowledge. The learning of Yoga is interesting as the Course provides a basic concept of Yoga Theories and Asana Practices, Pranayamas as well as Kriyas. It has spurred me to want to know more and continue learning. Teachers are professional and want all the theories and lessons be learnt and understood clearly. Delivery is easy to understand even for very profound Yoga Philosophies. Appreciate their patience and effort for putting in extra time for the weekend batch as we missed out a weekend of lesson. The program also opens up my mind and make me realise that, things that seem impossible can be done with ease. This definitely will enhance my attitude towards life. Nothing is impossible!”

“My recent participation in Yoga Teacher’s Training Course (YICC) has been a very enriching and useful experience. I found the approach to be holistic as it not only focussed on the Asanas, but enunciated the concept of yoga, including practical demonstrations, theme based assignments and report preparation. I personally found it to be an eye opener as it helped me to better understand the perception of yoga and in general the enormous advantages it holds for one to lead a composed and guarded way of life. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Vyasa School for their efforts in organising and facilitating such Yoga courses.”

“Starting my journey last year with YICC, it gave me the theoretical as well as practical foundation leading into my yoga practice and teaching today, including pranayama, asanas and relaxation techniques.I am very much enjoyed having Manoj as a teacher and being part of the Vyasa family. However, 1.5 years down the road I felt it was time to go deeper and that is why I joined in May YTCC. It is a truly fantastic program giving us the adequate background information connecting yoga with medical knowledge. I am very happy that I made this step forward to deepen my understanding and knowledge of yoga”

Yap Bin Hui BATCH-218 (2014)

Yap Bin Hui BATCH-218 (2014)

“YICC at Vyasa Yoga gave me a holistic picture about what Yoga truly is. Theory topics were very informative and were taught systematically. Asanas, Pranayamas, Kriyas and all the other topics are taught with notes that are very comprehensive. Teachers give good explanations to every question asked; even for questions on personal level.
Administration is very organized, no administrative red tape, it was easy to apply and pay for the course.
After the first week of practice, I found significant improvement in my quality of sleep. It usually took me about one to two hours to fall asleep before I started yoga, even during hectic days (I was still schooling in junior college and would be very tired by the end of the day). Now, it takes me about half an hour and I wake up feeling energised. Throughout the course, I have felt deeply of how the words of a doctor can actually affect the patient a lot, especially mentally.
As I am going to continue with medical school this year, I will be wary of how I want to communicate with my patients in the future. I have enjoyed the whole month of YICC training with my batch mates. Everyone’s experiences built on each other’s which gave me valuable insights of many life related issues and health problems. To be specific, this month flew by very fast and I would recommend anyone to join this course.

It has given me an insight into myself which was very much needed. It has made me more spiritual & relaxed person. I have found this Course very helpful. It increases confidence of students by exposing them to different kinds of projects & an outing, meeting new people. It prepares them to be confident enough to teach Yoga.

“The content of YICC covers a wide range of information on Yoga. Manoj Ji is very clear about the theories and he explains them very well. I appreciate that he gave us many examples & helped us understand. Shivani ji is also very thorough in her explanation on the Yoga poses.
I came to YICC expecting to learn mainly the physical aspect of yoga, but I am very pleased to have learned so much more than expected! I enjoyed learning about Kriya and the concept of Yoga. I have felt changes in my body after starting YICC and this has made me realize how important yoga is to our daily lives.
I’m grateful to Vyasa Yoga for giving me the opportunity to improve my spiritual and physical life through YICC Course. I am so happy to meet many wonderful people!

Student Testimonials

I am thankful to Guru Manoj ji from whom I have learnt the essence of Yoga. He has been my teacher, mentor and a compelling motivator throughout my course and later too. He has always been there to answer all my questions and clear all my doubts.

For me Yoga has become a science which brings everything together and where I can find all my answers. Very Interesting! The Journey has just started. Thanks to the lovely couple Ms. Shivani and Master Mr. Manoj for being excellent teachers in Yoga. Every day it had been a joy for me to go to Vyasa Yoga Classes and I hope to continue my Yoga Way Life back in the Netherlands.

I wish to convey my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to my kind, funny and caring teacher Manoj, for teaching and sharing his knowledge on Yoga so generously and patiently. Also I would like to convey my sincere respect and gratitude to teacher Shivani, for her gentle smiles and for teaching so clearly and precisely.

Yip Pei Shan

My deepest appreciation to my Guru Mr. Manoj Thakur, without his teaching my path to enlightenment would be dark. Today I realize I started Yoga for the right reason, to find happiness. I know now, that it is within my grasp, but I am yet to learn to be constantly in the present moment. I have learnt so much from my teacher. I am thankful to my friend who recommended this course to me.

Mayra Cecilia Morales-Robles

Wish to thank Manoj ji for his guidance during the length of this course. He applies his special combination of ‘real life ‘practicality with profound spiritual wisdom in a way that few can match. In teaching me about the nature of re- centring, his meditation has been enormously enhancing.

Stella Lim

I always looked forward to attend my Yoga class at Vyasa while doing YICC, because each time there was something new and interesting to learn. Manoj ji would make each class more enriching and awakening!
