My time in Rishikesh has been amazing! I had such a lovely time I am confident I will be back in a year or 3. I wouldn't mind writing a review for Kaivalya Yoga, but in a way, I didn't do my retreat with them.
Basically, what happened was this: I received an email a couple of days before going to Rishikesh that the majority of the retreat had cancelled. Since there were only 2 people still interested in the retreat, it would be difficult for them to organise a retreat. I had already paid everything up front so they found a solution for me. They made sure I could join another yoga retreat in Rishikesh which is one of their partners.
They assured me the scheduled would be more or less the same and there would also be daily excursions. In general, most of that was true (I did go river rafter, visited temples, caves and waterfalls.), but, I did feel like I had too much free time. The afternoon was free from 14:00 till 18:00.. However, there were 2 yoga teacher trainings (100h TTC and 200h TTC) running during my stay at the other yoga school and since we had our Hatha morning class and Pranayama classes already together with the 100h teacher students, I asked if I could join their afternoon Ashtanga class and they told me that wasn't a problem.
I met up with Amit (my contact person from Kaivalya yoga) almost everyday or every 2 days, even though I had the retreat at a different school. He clearly wanted to make sure everything was fine, that I was happy with the place, that I had a good room. Therefore, even though I didn't do the retreat with Kaivalya Yoga in the end, I still give them a rating of 8.5 out of 10. They did make sure everything was taken care of, they gave me a personal driver who came to pick me up in Delhi and they made sure they were available throughout my stay in Rishikesh.
My trip to Rishikesh has been amazing. I love the vibe that goes around Rishikesh, the stunning view of the Himalayas, the friendliness of everyone on the streets, in the restaurants and in the shops. The people I met in the yoga school were lovely, radiating positiveness and kindness. It had been an unforgettable experience and 100% worth the trip.
