We really enjoyed our beginner's classes with Manoj. He did a great job as a teacher and made us feel immediately at ease. We saw significant improvements in only 5 classes, which we didn't expect. He was always flexible with regard to times and locations, which was great for us and much appreciated. Thank you, Manoj!!

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!
