I was lucky enough to take part in the 200 hour yoga teacher training in the beautiful Rishikesh in September 2016. I was honored to be a student of SabbalRana. Through his responsible attitude, I got to know the hatha yoga knowledge systematically, and understood the true meaning of yoga more comprehensively. This is the purpose of my trip. I really enjoyed his class. His energetic mantra, which from the bottom of his heart, led us into the world of yoga, let us feel the peace and pleasure of the current moment, felt the inner connection. The learning of Pranayama allowed the body to improve concentration while getting energy. In Asana class, I experienced the lead of breathing and the extension of the body. It made my heart softened down again and relax completely. I really looked forward to having such practices and spiritual inspiration every day. As he said, a good teacher must be a good practitioner. Very thanks to SabbalRana. He let me feel the real yoga. namaste!
I've been to many yoga retreats n festivals , n studied under many teachers. Rana Ji stands out as one of my favorite ! He seems to instinctively know just what asanas u need in those cold wintry Rishikesh mornings wen u don’t feel like getting out of bed, and also wen to push u just a little bit more, to push ur limits. I love his teaching methods, that he incorporates the teachings of guruji iyengar in his hatha classes. And plus, rana ji is genuinely a really really nice guy. highly recommended!
More then one year is gone, but I clearly remember thetime when I’ve been practicing yoga with Sabbal Rana! The contemplative look to everyone and very kindness heart of this man appears now,, when I write this memories. I had to translate some of Sabbals classes and as soon as I’ve begun, I’ve understood, that it isn’t possible, just to translate and not to do yoga with him!!! Very simple instructions and advises have made the people believe in their power. I miss his classes and I hope to get to India until this year and take part at least in his sun-salutation class. OM
I think we got very lucky when Sabbal came to Ukraine. It was a big chance for all of us to get to know him and his ways of teaching yoga. It is a very balanced, diverse and at the same time profound work that made us all feel better. If you go to his classes, your whole day will be peaceful and full of harmony. Sabbal has an incredible talent to explain difficult things in simple language and not loosing the essence of yoga.With great respect and love I thank Sabbal for the happy hours of practice with him.
I experienced Sabbal Rana as a very great yoga teacher, i recommend his teaching with all my heart. I found him to be a very energetic, joyful and caring teacher. i always felt he teaches with all his heart. fully present with the students, fully present in what he is teaching, and that makes the class very lively. He can take the class to different directions, sometimes intensive and some times deep and peaceful. Rana makes the assanas be more then just body exercise, he gives the student inspiration how to take the yoga assanas into the different situations in life.
