“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.”

“YICC at Vyasa Yoga covered everything well about Yoga which I really wanted to find out. Every single topic is broken down in point form which is easy to digest. Opportunity to attend talks during the Course is proven helpful to me. I have been able to learn a true concept of Yoga and also able to calm myself down a lot. My family especially see my changes. I am seeing things in different perspective which helps me bring down stress. One big “Thank you” to all teachers who patiently replied my questions & queries during the Course!

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.”

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.”

“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 came here to increase my knowledge of Yoga, mainly poses, which is only a physical aspect of Yoga. But the Course has given me much more. 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. So I think my journey has been happy as well as successful.”

“YICC Course Syllabus and Content is purely an essence of Yoga. I thoroughly enjoyed and learned a lot. It’s my pleasure to have teachers like “Guru”who teach me very well. We feel comfortable and don’t get bored in class room!

We have gained more knowledge, both practical as well as theoretical, which help to motivate one. It has cleared my doubts in Yoga practice. Especially 8 step method is very good to execute any Yoga Posture. I really enjoyed the Course and want to thank all the teachers for sharing their expertise and keeping a lot of patience in correcting our postures..!

“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”

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!
