I did 200 hour yoga teacher training.I highly recommend this school. It is easy to get drowned in the multitude of yoga school options in Rishikesh. The caliber of teachers are excellent. The location is beautiful. The atmosphere created by Swami, teachers and staff facilitates learning and self growth. The ashram location is a great spot. The food is also very good, if you enjoy Indian food with little salt. The education offered here is all encompassing, there are many schools in Rishikesh but this one is building a good reputation due to its hard work. Be open to all that is, accept and know that you are in good hands. I visited many temples and saw the best dance moves . Great memories!!!!!!

It is very tricky to find a good school looking on internet as the descriptions are mostly very abstract. So I try to highlight the concrete things. The yoga shala is on the upper floor and has big windows on 2 walls and the great views to the mountains. The teachers are young and very energetic. I liked a lot that our asana teachers did not waste time on long talks and spent time very efficiently showing the alignment and making us to work. So to me personally teachers and the location of the yoga shala was the top. Another thing is that it is run by family and friends and they all are very knowledgeable young Indians and very dedicated. I noticed there are two types of ashrams - some very silent and you have to whisper when inside and some are more dynamic. This one is more dynamic cause the type of yoga - vinyasa and ashtanga attracts many youngsters. Thus the atmosphere is more lax, lots of laugh and jokes also together with teachers. Another good thing is that it is somewhat up on the mountain. Before coming to India I did not know the roads are so dusty and was really happy to find out the ashram is far away from the dust. The school is located just at the banks of the very busy small river. I am not sure if it is upside or a downside - many people told they are very happy to hear this natural waterfall sound. But keep in mind the sound is really strong, I personally had to use the earplugs to fall asleep. The food is nothing special - the same as in all India: rice, chapati and overcooked vegetables made in aluminium pots and lots of sauces. The cooks are very nice guys and they reacted very fast when we asked to introduce the fruits to get some vitamins. Later we found out that close to the school are some organic restaurants with much more variety and were filling our stomachs there instead. After all I think it is a very good school, since the sound and food are the secondary elements and you can find easy solutions for it. It is in the cleaner area than lots of other Rishikesh schools - this is very important cause you will take lots of oxygen in you this month. And teachers are just unbeatable. If you want to learn, highly recommended.
