"Great experience "
It was a very intense time for me. The teachers were very competently with a great knowledge.
We were a group of only 3 people at the end, for me it was good, but of course for the school they need more people and I can really recommend to join the teacher training at hari om Yoga vidya school.
Also the food was really awesome and the smile of the friendly stuff.

I had a wonderful time in Hari Om Yoga Vidya school. We learned a lot about ashtanga yoga, anatomy, pranayama, meditation, hatha yoga, yoga philosophy. Teachers were great, esspecially Som, the Ashtanga Vinyasa and Anatomy teacher. He gave us so much information about adjustments and modifications and how to use them properly. The food was very tasty and the accommodation clean. Pramod and his family made us all feel great and the most welcomed. I really enjoyed every second being there. 🙏💓

"A yoga journey, not a teacher training "
My experience at Hari Om yoga school was as intense as I anticipated. I enjoyed all the classes and the 200hr training course solidified my personal yoga practice.
I am really pleased that I took 4 weeks to focus on my yoga journey. The school provided a good learning environment, with support from Pramod (headteacher).

All teachers were very dedicated and passionate about yoga, and very willing to share this. The course was continually challenging which is what we were looking for. I especially appreciated the anatomy component which looked at anatomy from western science and eastern yogic angles, relating it to asana, pranayama and meditation.
Facilities and accomodation was perfect, super comfortable and definitely the best indian food in Rishikesh. All the staff in the hotel/school were so lovely and I will miss talking with them over meals.
Pramod ji is wonderful and really cares that about our learning and comfort. We learnt many lessons from him in kindness and compassion also.
I'd definitely recommend this school over others 😊

"Great stay at Hari Om"
Hari Om was great - its like staying with a family that really cares. We had a great small group of 10 of us which was perfect as you spent a lot of time with the instructors and get a lot of personal instruction. The accommodation is clean and simple and every one is very friendly professional and kind. Pramod even took our group into the jungle to complete our classes for the day and it was a very beautiful day out! The kitchen guys are great - they make a delicious chai tea to die for! Thanks all of Hari Om for the experience!

"Herzliche und familiäre Yoga Schule "
Pramod, his family and the staff...everyone was just super nice, always asking if we're alright or need any help. I felt comfortabel in the school from the very first day! The building is really nice, the highlight is the rooftop with the beautiful view of the mountains! The food they served us daily was plenty and delicious! My room was very nice, with all the necessities.
Pramod organized some day trips on our free sundays! We went together with him and his family to a waterfall. The other sunday he booked us a rafting trip which was so much fun!
In this month I just learned so much! The teachers have been amazing, I loved every single one as all of them have been very special! They teached us a lot, and the yoga hall provided a nice studying place. I loved it when the monkeys passed by the windows during class
I could keep on writing....there are just so many beautiful experiences and memories I collected in this month at hari om yoga school!
Thank you very much!

When I decided to do the yoga teacher license at Hari Om Yoga Vidya School I expected to learn the basics of the traditional Yoga, how to teach it to others & to have an inspiring time in India.
In the end I got so much more:
The teacher & the staff are all absolutely heart- warming & supporting in any concern.
At Hari Om Yoga Vidya School we had well structured practise & theory classes, furthermore the school is situated in a very nice area in Rishikesh, so there are nice places to see around.
The food, rooms & staff were just better than expected & I’m looking forward to come back & continue with my yoga journey.
Thank you so much for everything Hari Om Family!
