    I can really highly recommend this TTC. What I loved most about this program is the dedication to providing an authentic teaching of Hatha yoga and sattvic lifestyle. I can imagine that that’s not everyone’s cup of tea, however it was exactly what I was looking for personally. Besides the high quality of the actual teachings/ classes, I really enjoyed the fact that uniforms were required and we stuck to a sattvic/ ayurvedic diet during the course. For me, it really added to the teaching and allowed you to immerse yourself better into the yogic lifestyle, which I found to be very valuable. The food was really delicious and nourishing. Although the rooms were basic, the Ashram and its surroundings were really serene and a perfect environment to do a program like this. I think it’s truly so much better than doing your TTC within the hustle and bustle of Tapovan, which has so many distractions and disturbances. The teachers Vini and Tina are also so knowledgeable about yoga and were truly great teachers, I really enjoyed being their student. All in all, if you’re looking for a high quality, no BS Hatha yoga TTC, I can highly recommend this one!

    This is my favorite place for panchkarma. I've been here twice, and each time inexperienced a significant improvement with my health. Dr. Vinod is very patient and takes the time to answer all of your questions. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Everything is done to ensure your stay is comfortable. Also the food is healthy and delicious 😋

    I recently attended the 300 hour meditation teacher training at Real Happiness Meditation Ashram and it was an extraordinary experience. The serene environment, expert guidance, and genuine warmth from the entire staff made it an ideal place to deepen my personal meditation practice. The sessions were thoughtfully structured, blending mindfulness, yoga, and silent(vipassana) meditation, which left me feeling rejuvenated and centered. The natural setting also added to the overall tranquility I received. I highly recommend Real Happiness to anyone seeking a transformative and peaceful retreat!

    Hii I’m Lokesh Patel,I have went through my left shoulder surgery ,after the surgery I have suffered from serious anxiety ,depression and panic attacks and it was very difficult for me to move on ,I have met psychiatrist and used medicines but it was not completely cured and I decided to go near Sunil sir at yoganga healing for one and one session for anxiety and depression ,and Sunil sir had great knowledge about breathing techniques to deal with anxiety problems and 5 days session with Sunil sir really helped me and I’m completely out of my anxiety symptoms and Yog Nidra guided by Sunil sir is really good.Iam really thankful to Sunil sir and yoganga healing 🙏
    I would recommend yoganga healing for one who suffers from anxiety and depression problems.

    Completed my 200 hours TTC at Om Shanti Om, I'm now back home but my heart is still there. When I arrived in the school honestly, I was not expecting to learn this much. The course was well structured and complete: perfect balance between Yog philosophy, pranayama, anathomy, ayurveda, body allignment, teaching methodology and yoga asanas. This four weeks were a true journey through Yog world and expecially through myself. I learn how to listen to my body and my mind, to go over my limits and how to love myself and others with more kindness.
    All the teachers were passionate and happy to share their knowledge, we were always coming to class with a big smile, and going to bed at night with a smile even bigger!
    Thanks Om Shanti Om family, thanks Dinesh for creating this amazing environment and for bringing your amazing and powerful energy, your passion and your love for discipline and for life to all of us everyday.

    I'm so grateful for this experience. ❤️🙏🏻
    Namaste

    My 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course at Vinyasa Yoga Ashram was an unforgettable experience.It went far beyond just learning yoga poses.Here's why I highly recommend them:
    First of all, I would like to thank everyone, from the teachers to the cooking team. They all did an incredible job.
    I would like to start with the teachers:
    1. Ajay Sir: At first, I was confused about which yoga school to join in Rishikesh, as there are so many options. The moment I spoke to Ajay Sir, he gave a clear picture of the course and clarified my doubts whenever I called him. He was a big reason for me to join here.His "Sound Healing" class was so divine, and I truly went into a deeper state of peace.
    2. Anupritha Ma'am:She is one of the most awesome people I have met. The day I met her with my family, everyone got attached to her, and even my mother-in-law was so impressed that she said she would take the course after me—LOL.She always has a lovely smile and is ready to help students anytime they need assistance.She took the Pranayama class for us, and I felt it was so deep that we needed more sessions.I even requested a separate week-long course for Pranayama.We also enjoyed the Shatkarma practice, which awakened our bodies.
    3. Pradeep Sir:His teaching method for asana postures and alignment was excellent. He guided us clearly and precisely, always correcting us with gentle kindness. He has a deep understanding of anatomy and knows how to help each person safely deepen their practice.His anatomy lessons were very informative, using various materials and encouraging open discussions to answer our questions.
    4. Sangam Sir:He led the Vinyasa Flow classes. He is very humble and a true yogi who shows kindness in all he does and says.His dedication to yoga is clear, and he has a strong, positive energy.
    5. Prajna Ma'am:She guided us through various meditation techniques, and her calming presence was itself a meditation. We practiced different types of meditation, such as candle gazing, laughing meditation, and chakra opening, all led by her deep and caring voice.
    6.Aravind Sir:He taught us Ashtanga and Aerial Yoga. His practice was very strict,and he ensured everyone was doing the asanas correctly. I loved the quick pace and strictness of his Ashtanga teaching.
    7.Shadwalee Ma'am: Even though she taught just one day about the Ayurveda course, it was very lively. She was so knowledgeable that we learned how to make our food itself a medicine in our lives.
    8.Assistant Teachers: I would like to thank Assistant Teacher Sneha. She helped throughout the Vinyasa and Ashtanga classes, was very caring, and guided everyone patiently. I loved the Restorative Yoga session, which was taken by Aravind Sir's assistant (sorry, I forgot the name), it was truly amazing. Thanks to the photography team too.
    9.Lastly, I would like to give a big round of applause to the kitchen and cleaning teams. They cooked delicious sattvic food for us every day according to what is suggested for a yogic diet and our practices, which did not harm our stomach in anyways. "Big Kudos" and my humble "Namaste" to them.
    10.Apart from this, there was a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The opening and closing ceremonies and kirtans were so beautiful and close to the heart.
    11.We also had three excursions, one was a mountain trek, and the other two were in the River Ganga. I enjoyed my meditation in the River Ganga and found my inner peace there.
    12.Facilities:The yoga halls were spacious, clean, and well-equipped with props, providing a comfortable space for practice. Additionally, the accommodation provided was comfortable and conducive to rest and rejuvenation after intensive training sessions.
    Finally, for those seeking to become a yoga teacher or deepen their yoga practice, Vinyasa Yoga Ashram offers transformative teachings. The combination of theoretical knowledge, practical teaching experience, and personal growth makes it a valuable experience. Vinyasa Yoga Ashram invites you to begin a path of personal growth and inner peace.

    I am very happy to have done my 200h and my 300h TTC with Ekam Yogashala. I chose Ekam because of the smaller group sizes and more familiar atmosphere and I was not disappointed. The teachers are inspiring and have an incredible knowledge - you learn a lot from their professional and personal experience. The 200h were a good foundation for my further yoga journey. I loved this school so much that I came back for the 300h two months later to go even deeper into the topics. The training is intense but really helps your personal development and prepares you to become a responsible teacher. Devakar, Neetu, Rakesh and all the staff make you feel very supported and like part of the family. Since May 2024 they have a new place a little bit outside of crowded Tapovan with spacious cottages and a peaceful garden. I had a wonderful experience here and recommend this school to everyone who is serious about learning Yoga. Lots of love to you all! 🧡

    I had an amazing experience for my 200hr yoga ttc in Akshi yogashala (28 days). We were thaught the old Himalayan yogic traditions and it is transformative. From mantra's, philosophy, pranayama to hatha, vinyasa, anatomy, alignment of postures to meditation classes. The teachers are very knowledgeable, have a lot of experience and love to share that.

    Everything was sublime and every question was answered beyond my expectations. They made us feel comfortable during our stay and our practices. The yogic food that was served was very delicious! Rooms are basic but comfortable. The neighborhood is peaceful and calm and very close to the ganga!

    A much recommended school, they really look after you!

    We spent one month at this place and must say that from the very first minute till the very last minute, everything was absolutely perfect and amazing. The teaching is excellent, the food is amazing, the staff is super helpful and friendly, the rooms are good, location of the school is great, more than anything the vibe of this place is amazing. if you are planning for a TTC course or for drop in classes then Rishikul Yogshala is the place I would highly highly recommend. We made some friends for life here. Not to forget, Bipin sir, the principal of the school is not only a great teacher but also an amazing person. Every things that were taught to us will help us improve in right direction.

    The Rishikesh Yog Temple School transformed my life. Living in the city, I never realized my body had so many restrictions. This stay opened my eyes, challenging me both physically and mentally. The experienced teachers kept me motivated, and the weekly excursions were refreshing. Mr. Rohit, the lead teacher, is amazing, and Beer adds laughter to the sessions. At 50, I spent my holidays constructively and found new purpose.

    I did 200H TTC at Arogya Yoga School and I was very satisfied with everything. They have the best chef under the sun there, as well as teachers who will guide you through your studies. I am definitely going to return to Arogya Yoga School soon.
