As a student of Krishna's, I hope you will consider this when you decide with whom you choose to study Yoga. Through Krishna, I witnessed the living action of a yoga practitioner/teacher, doing his level best to live in congruence. He asks this from his students as well. In teaching, he is also knowingly teaching himself in each and every class and interaction. While also, keeping his priorities & attention on his students. He holds the space of Father/Teacher with such grace. How many people do you know who are doing their best to live in congruence, teach & challenge themselves on a path with such honesty ?
I approached Krishna at the beginning of the program to make him aware of my injuries. He was not just kind & compassionate but also remained aware & checked in on me throughout. You can trust him with your weaknesses.
There is far too much to try to get across in a testimonial. Bottom line: Krishna is the best comprehensive yoga teacher I've had the pleasure of studying with.

I met Krishna while doing my 300 hr teacher training in Rishikesh. How lucky was I. Krishna comes from a Brahman family where his Indian history and culture has been preserved. This allowed him to share as he skilfully taught us the practice philosophy of yoga. Yoga is more than just a physical workout it is a way of life. Krishna leads by example with his wife and daughter . Anyone considering taking a yoga teacher training course in India would Be well served under Krishna's guidance . I would highly recommend him.
Having been taught by my dear guru Krishna,my life changed from the way I walk, talk, think and breath. He is a strong teacher with such respect for all his students. As a female student I felt very comfortable practicing in his presence and respected him entirely as he is very disciplined in his practice on and off the mat. His teachings have stuck with me and I still feel like I have a little Krishna sitting on my shoulder saying; "Don't just do the pose,do something in it". My knowledge I gained about yoga and life started with him. He has a good sense of humor and is a very respected man,not just from his students,but also the community. Your life will gain new meaning after meeting and being taught by Krishna. He is the real deal !

Krishna is such an inspirational yoga teacher. He has so much wisdom and love to give. I would definitely recommend yoga training with Krishna to everyone. Krishna has patience with his students and he will answer all your questions. I loved his meditation classes and when he was chanting devotional mantras to us. There was so much love in it. He also has a great sense of humor so you will not get bored at all :) It will be fun! Great teacher to learn from. So much love to give and so much wisdom to share.

Father, Grandfather, Brother, Friend. These are the titles I give to the most respected men in my life, and as a teacher, Krishna encompassed all of them. Krishna is not only a teacher, he somehow also becomes your family. His extensive knowledge and obvious years of experience make him one of the most incredible people from whom I've had the pleasure to learn. His sense of humor and intelligence are unparalleled and you will leave his classes with not only a physical but a mental and spiritual depth you didn't know you had.He only teaches you what he knows and from his experience, you experience. Thank you Krishna, I can honestly say, you changed my life for the better. With all the love in the world, your student.

Krishna is the perfect being to help guide you on your Yoga journey. My wonderful journey with Krishna brought me so much more than just knowledge about Yoga and how to be a instructor. It taught me how to become more aware about life and my own being. I grew stronger in so many different ways both physically and mentally. I feel like Krishna provides you the tools to help you find your true self, find what makes you happy and then it's your job to do the work and grow as a being. Krishna's spirit and energy are both uplifting and calming. He makes me want to try and be the better person I can be. I carry his knowledge and words with me everyday, close to my heart. Besides being the best, most awesome, amazing teacher....he is also a Great Friend! You should definitely take your own Yoga Journey with Krishna as your guide. It can be life changing.

Krishna is knowledgeable, kind and caring. His instruction is detail-oriented, specific yet easy to follow. He can speak on everything from alignments and physiology to the history of the Gita, with ease and verve. He supplements his incredible historical knowledge with personal stories from his long yoga journey from disciple to teacher. To put it simply, his devotion to his craft is contagious...and one of the reasons I can say I felt privileged to train with him

I cannot say enough good things about Krishna. He is an excellent teacher who truly cares about his students. I am so grateful for my 300 hour yoga training with him and would definitely recommend his teachings. If you enjoy yoga philosophy, proper alignment and a little humour, you will definitely enjoy his teacher training!
