AYM School Rishikesh is located in soothing and serene surroundings of Himalayas which is a wonderful view to have in Rishikesh. It is set back in the stunning location of Tapovan, Rishikesh and is surrounded by beautiful mountains, waterfalls, and supreme tranquility. For your intensive yoga teacher training, there is a beautiful bright studio with big windows on all sides where you can enjoy the panoramic view of the breath-taking mountains and hills surrounding the accommodation.

All 30 of the rooms at the ashram are new and comfortable. They all come with an attached private washroom as well as warm water. All rooms will have a wonderful, big window facing towards the mountains. The room has air-conditioning, filtered water system, bed sheets, pillows, towels, blankets, and en-suite bathrooms.

Ashrams usually represent a return to a simpler way of living, which is very different to a hotel. Generally there is a more communal atmosphere and often an expectation that guests will pitch in with whatever needs doing.
