I had an amazing experience, the teachers were well informed and great to learn from. The accommodation was good and I had everything I needed. The food was better then I expected and they tried to keep a variation of food to enjoy. The location was great, because it was away from the city centre which provides calm when you are there. I also enjoyed the people who came to AYM, they were like minded people who wanted to learn about yoga and concentrate on self develop, I truly believe I have made some friends for life. I was nervous about going to India but when it was time to go I was so sad to say bye to such amazing people.

The location is great. The school is located up on Tapovan hill (the way to get there is pretty steep!) far away from the noise of the city, but still reachable by foot. The yoga center is great, with a beautiful garden and a little bar where they serve coffee and juices. The rooms are clean and bright. The yoga hall is big and bright, even though a bit dusty.

The Hatha Yoga teacher (Jaya) is EXCELLENT, very knowledgeable, with a focus on alignement.

The training was really amazing. All teachers have been all really high professional and Mahesh, the owner and his family, including all staff have been lovely and at our disposal any time. The ashram was very well organized. I would like to recommend AYM to students who want to start or master a Yoga path.

As a current fitness professional, it was very important to attend a school that had quality instruction and knowledgeable staff. AYM provided that and much more. I completed my 300 TTC here and it has improved my skill set and knowledge as an instructor. On top of the great education, the facility is clean and has beautiful views. Very happy I enrolled here.

I've been gone for a week and I miss it! Learned a ton. Also, great way to stay in shape in a country that's too damn hot for cardio...

I took part in the 100-hour Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training. While studying at the AYM Yoga School I got a good experience in yoga. Excellent teachers, friendly staff, food of high quality and taste, very comfortable rooms for accommodation of students. I enjoyed every moment spent at school. Excellent location of the school away from the noise of the main road. Beautiful view of the mountains and Rishikesh. I met many new friends from all over the world. I hope for new meetings and want to recommend AYM Yoga School as the best yoga school in Rishikesh.
