Testimonials

I was looking for a Yoga class in English and I found this. I'm enjoying it very much and I can feel I've improved in a short time. I always finish the lesson feeling stronger and peaceful; Manoj is a very good teacher and you can feel at ease with him.
For German native speakers: I have the sensation that practising yoga in a language different from yours can actually help you stay focused (or at least it is working for me), so it can be a good opportunity even if you aren't a foreigner who knows English better than German!

Die Ashtanga Klassen von Manoj wirken sehr authentisch. Er scheint viel Erfahrung zu haben und kann dieses in seinen Klassen wirklich gut vermitteln. In stressigen Zeiten nahm ich öfters daran teil (inkl. Meditation-Sessions) und kann nur positives berichten. Die Klassen sind definitiv einen Besuch wert!

I attended Manoj's yoga classes at the Neckarwiese and really enjoyed them.... besides the great location he is a very kind and supportive teacher. The classes are especially suited for beginners and people with some yoga experience. There is a relaxing meditation in the end 🙂

It feels great to start the week with yoga on the Neckarwiese and with Manoj, who guides you through the Yoga asana (exercises) in a very kind way.
