"After practicing with different teachers in Spain, it was not till I arrived to India and met with this lovely soul called Chida for practicing yoga in a teacher training that I was able to realize and experience what being immerse in hatha yoga really is. Connecting my body with my mind, through out my breathing, I had an unforgettable experience. I feel really thanksfully to Chida and his knoewledge. It is a present not only to your body, but also to yoor mind. Thanks a million lovely soul. om om shanti"
"My yoga immersion with Chida was an amazing experience. He was the practical yoga teacher in the 200 hr TTC. Chida's humour and wit always kept us entertained and made the practice light even when experienced mental limitations. He always found the perfect balance of encouraging us when we were lost in self doubt or pushing us when we were just being lazy. I will remember this experience with gratitude."
“I was lucky enough to have Chida as my asana and pranayama teacher for my Yoga Alliance 200-hour teacher training in 2015. Chida is an accomplished practitioner and a patient, kind and highly experienced individual who will guide you easily through your own practice not only as a student but also as a teacher. Through his classes, I gained not only the necessary knowledge to complete the training, but much more importantly, I gained the confidence to go on and become a teacher myself. Thank you , Chida!”Namaste
“I was lucky to be taught by Chida on the 200h Hatha Yoga course in January 2016. I couldn't recommend Chida highly enough, his calm professional demeanour was a reassuring presence that could always be relied upon. We had a diverse class of all different ages and backgrounds, but we we're all united in a mutual respect and admiration for our teacher Chida. This was largely because he was so patient and understanding with us. We know we weren't always easy to teach! When a class was physically tough his encouragements and cheeky good humour kept us motivated to keep going and improving. Chidas silly playfulness made everyone feel relaxed and his heightened awareness and attentiveness ensured that everyone was getting the assistance they needed. Chidas wealth of knowledge and lifelong dedication to yoga was inspiration, I felt lucky to have been his student and friend. His words of advice have stayed with me and have helped me much more than he would ever take credit for. If you have the opportunity to attend one of his classes then know you are in good hands, rarely do you meet an individual so dedicated and naturally suited to teaching as Chida.”
“Chida is a wonderful teacher. He taught me asana & pranayama class where I was mesmerised by his yogic grace. His expression of yoga is artful in all its forms. You can immediately feel in his class that Chida is yoga. He lives & breaths it. I truly miss his class, & he would be amazed to see the progress that I have done all thanks to his amazing teachings. Forever in my heart Chida.”
