Dear Eklavvya Team,

We have been using the platform of  Eklavvya for the last 2 years and conducted many online assessments of Yoga – Level-1 , Level-2 & Level-3. 

Our students have gained a good amount of knowledge from those tests and we have been successfully able to certify students with respect to their yoga knowledge

Most of them have already started Yoga classes in their cities and some of them are working at our gurukul as well.

We truly appreciate  Eklavvya team for their continuous support and co-operation during each and every assessment.

Eklavvya is certainly enabling remote assessments of the users effectively.
