The ashram-based rooms, which are furnished with comfortable beds, study tables and cupboards, hot water bathrooms, and Wi-Fi facilities, are in close proximity to shopping outlets for your personal needs as well as to shopping centers, grocery stores, and restaurants.

Rishikesh, often named the place of sages, is a celebrated spiritual town on the banks of the river Ganga, located at an altitude of 365 meters above sea level. It is surrounded by the Shivalik range of the Himalayas on three sides. Rishikesh is an ideal destination for those who want to dwell deeper in meditation, yoga, and another aspect of Hinduism.

Sometimes nicknamed "the world capital of yoga", it has numerous yoga centers that also attract tourists. It is believed that meditation in Rishikesh brings one closer to the attainment of moksha, as does a dip in the holy river that flows through it. The international yoga festival at Parmath Niketan ashram, which attracts participation from across the world, is held here every year in February on the banks of the holy Ganga.

Rishikesh is world famous for rafting and mountain adventures. Rafting season starts from March and ends in July. Rishikesh is also home to the 120-year-old Kailas Ashram Brahmavidyapeetham, an institution dedicated to preserving and promoting traditional Vedantic studies. Prominent personalities, such as Swami Vivekananda, Swami Rama Tirtha, and Swami Shivananda, have studied in this institution.

In February 1968, The Beatles visited the now-closed Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram in Rishikesh. After this experience, John Lennon recorded the song titled The Happy Rishikesh Song. The Beatles composed nearly 48 songs during their time at the Maharishi's ashram, many of which appear on the White album.

Yoga is the science of proper living and as such is intended to be incorporated in daily life. Yoga is the conventional culture of the Hindu religion. The word 'yoga' originates from the Sanskrit word 'Yuj', which means the union of the individual consciousness and soul with the universal consciousness or spirit. Some people choose yoga because it helps them in their career or profession.

For others, yoga is just an exercise, a way of keeping the body fit, leading a healthy life, doing sports, or even a holiday or vacation but some may even search yoga with a lot of questions in mind. The real learners are those who research the divinity of yoga, encounter self-finding liberation, and change the destination of their life. Yoga works on all personal levels: physical, vital, mental, emotional, and spiritual. It is a 5000-year-old technique used to take care of your body, mind, and soul.

Many things said about yoga portray that it is only as a physical exercise where people twist, turn, stretch, and breathe in the most complex ways. Actually, there is a lot of very common knowledge about the impact of yoga on the human mind and soul. The science of yoga expresses its essence and its impact on your way of life through Gyan yoga or philosophy, Bhakti yoga or the path of devotional bliss, Karma yoga or the path of blissful action, and Raja yoga or the path of controlling the mind.

Those that will truly embrace yoga will never again waste their time and money on trivial things. Yoga is a lifelong journey and commitment. The retreat will explore the technical details of asana, pranayama, and meditation in the tradition of Hatha and Sukshumavyayam yoga. Throughout the day, you will be engaged in different sessions of asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting, audio video shows of Hatha and Sukshumavyayam classes, discussions on yoga philosophy, music, and bhajans.

A unique Indian experience

First of all, your breath is the main source of life and you should be aware that, for each second, you are breathing to keep you alive. Breath control gives tremendous benefits to your body, mind, and emotions as well as prolonging your life. Apart from the yoga practices, breathing exercise, and meditation practice, students will be given health tips by the way of asanas that can have specific healing effects for certain sickness. All tips are very beneficial for students.

Learning by practical and experimental means is best. However, if you have some theatrical knowledge to add to the experiment, you will get better results. In this retreat, priority will be given to lectures and classes on the subject of pranayama, the breathing control, meditation, and theory regarding how to do a successful meditation apart from knowing the objective, problem, solution, and benefit.

Both pranayama and meditation are very helpful for body and mind healing. They are the best therapies. Students will also learn about the proper yogic diet from an Ayurveda class taught by the best Ayurvedic doctor in the area. Participants will benefit from yoga therapy classes as well as from yoga philosophy, and they will have the chance to accumulate knowledge about everyday yoga applications and what are the life benefits of these applications.

The chance will not be missed to give students a special pooja (prayer) during the flower offering for their good blessing, the removal of the bad energies, to give peace of mind, to remove sorrows, and to always remain happy and healthy. Being happy and healthy is the most important treasure in your life. The prayer will last for an hour and will comprise of meditating, mantra chanting, and flower offerings to the holy river.

During the retreat, students are taught some important mantras chants which can give them happiness and also remove sickness. At the end of the retreat, students will be entertained with an amazing Indian classical music concert. On the last day, a closing ceremony prayer (pooja) will be performed and certificates will be given to all participants.

The schedule will change on a daily base including all the indoor and outdoor yoga activities, meditation practices, breathing exercises early in the morning, and the wonderful sightseeing and visits to local cultural sites.

Benefits of yoga

Physical and mental cleansing and cultivating inner and physical strength are one of the most important achievements of yoga. What makes it so powerful and effective is the fact that it works based on the holistic principles of harmony and unification. Yoga promotes your well-being almost every day. It increases endurance, strength, and springiness.

Mental and bodily endurance are tested for holding postures for enhanced breathe. It also tones your body, face, and skin so those that want to look smart and neat can also accomplish their dreams by joining the yoga retreat in Rishikesh, India. Yoga maintains your body. Yoga frees your body from intoxicating pollution. It strengthens your arms, legs, and muscles. Yoga helps you boost your self-confidence.

In contemporary times, the physical postures of yoga are used to alleviate health problems, reduce stress, and make the spine supple.

    "I will write the review according to different areas :"

    "1. School and Teachers"

    "According to information from your website, it stated that we will be taught by very much experienced teachers, but when we started the course, we had teachers having 4-5 years of experience - this was not as given on website neither conveyed to us earlier. It was told that yogi Dinesh had some personal problems so the course is taken by Akshi yoga school which is his brother's school. This was told only when we asked him as we could not see any transparency."

    "But the teachers were really good, had knowledge, but there was no coordination in between teachers, so we are taught the same thing multiple times by different teachers, so we learnt same things again and again. As teachers were absent we missed many classes. We did proper yoga learning only for 15 days, so it was waste of money. It was teaching for the last 15 days and we didn't learn anything new."

    "2. Study material"

    "After asking for 4-5 times, we finally got the study material one day before the end of course."

    "3. Accommodation and Food"

    "It was away from the crowd noise, so it was pleasant to stay and do yoga. But, the rooms had no mirror, I had to ask 5 times to the manager to give me mirror and then got one, there was problem with flush which was not resolved at all. There was no generator / inverter and there were many times when electricity was not there. It was very difficult to sleep without fans, even after getting tired doing yoga. Food was really good for the first 2 weeks with lots of variety but the last 2 weeks of course, it was spicy, no variety, no quality unlike it was in first 2 weeks."

    "4. WiFi"

    "We had WiFi problems throughout the course. First, because the monkeys broke the wire and secondly, the internet never worked properly even if the WiFi was connected."

    "5. Transport from airport to school"

    "Many people got free transport from Delhi airport to the school, but it was not conveyed to me, nor did they agree after i asked them about it. After asking other students, it was understood that there was free service."

    "6. Environment"

    "It was really positive environment in our school and all teachers had enough knowledge about yoga and were positive."

    "But finally, it was not worth for paying so much money and you get to learn only for 15 days because the last 15 days were for student teaching."

    "Organizer Response:"

    "Thanks for joining us and providing a review. We always do our best in organising this teacher training course however we will try to clear this point of view from the customer."

    "Teachers are knowledgeable according to their understanding and maturity but never judge teacher with their years of experience. Presentations to students is more important than the years of experience."

    "The accommodation is well equipped however some technical problem cannot be avoided and it commonly occur during the usage, so customer please give time to resettle the matter. "

    "Foods are prepared according to different cuisine and seasonally."

    "The airport transfer is stated clearly that it is chargeable and not free."

    "According to the schedule, students teaching was given only 7 days so that all students should participate in the teaching in order to build their self confidence when completed the course."

    "I am sure students get deep knowledge in end of this course , apart from this minor problems. However those issues are highlighted will be upgraded. Thank you.", edited

    "I did my 300-hour training course in six weeks in February and March 2016 with Om Shanti Om. I had already done the first 200 hours in France, and the teachings I have received with Om Shanti Om and the different teachers have really helped me to improve my practice and knowledge on yoga and philosophy. Dinesh and his lovely wife Priya teach with love and professionalism, they do their best to give the students a very good yoga training and knowledge about India. On Sunday, they took us to visit Rishikesh. I spent six very beautiful weeks with them and I plan to come back to Rishikesh very soon. Lots of thanks to them. Om Namah Shiva."

Dinesh and Priya are taking such good care of everyone and are so helpful with everything you may need during your stay. The food from Soulkitchen, where you eat if you book everything included, is vegan, different every day, and delicious. All the teachers are real professionals, each one in their subject. The meditations with Priya are wonderful. I can only recommend Om Shanti Om for a teacher training. Rishikesh is the best place to do this, anyway. Thank you!"

    "Thank you so much, Dinesh and Priya! Eight weeks ago, I came here with so little flexibility and very basic knowledge. Now, after five weeks of teacher training course, I will go home with so much more. More silence inside my mind and body, more flexibility, and much more detailed knowledge about yoga philosophy. The Ayurveda lessons were very helpful and I also have so much more experience in asanas, meditation, and breathing techniques."

    "I was not planning to teach, I started this course just as an intensive one for myself, but I wish to thank you for your love, your confidence, and your funny and authentic techniques. I will really continue for myself and I have already invited some friends for free classes to practice teaching and keep in yog, union, with myself."

    "I had an absolutely amazing time during the 200-hour yoga teacher training at Om Shanti Om registered yoga school in Rishikesh, January 2016. Traveling to India to learn yoga was one of best decisions in my life. Many thanks to Yogi Ji Dinesh Shastri for the meditation classes, to Mrs. Priya for the yoga philosophy classes, to Guru Buddhi Prakesh Ji, who was a student of Maharshi Mahesh yogi's ashram for 20 years, known as The Beatles ashram, and to Swami Yogi Yogendra Mishra for the Ayurveda classes. Thanks to Dr. Ushs Vaishnava for all your support. They are all Indian and were raised with the philosophies that they teach at the school. I also had the chance to meet people from all around the world who came here to join the yoga teacher training course. There is no need to mention the delicious food and comfortable accommodation provided by the school. I will definitely come back. Namaste."

You always leave his class with sadness that it has ended but also with a smile of the inner joy it has produced. Thank you, Yogi Dinesh and your whole team, for the best support.

The course started the next morning at dawn; it was a day filled with intense yoga practice, insightful lectures, and self-discovery within your own practice and others. The relaxed atmosphere at the shala and vast knowledge and experience of the teachers were truly inspiring."

Om Shanti Om is a warm place that gives their students as much help as possible. The course was professional with important classes for me. I learned a lot and have many things to take with me for my life and for my teaching experience."

    "My experience at Om Shanti Om was wonderful. I studied in a very calm and peaceful environment and with excellent teachers. We started with yoga asanas and satsangs with Yogi Dinesh, then, we went through yoga Nidra meditation with Sarah, and, finally, we took Ayurveda classes with the best doctor around here. I have improved a lot physically and spiritually and got a lot of practical knowledge to take with me back home. I recommend this school to everyone who is looking for deep yogic knowledge or just wants to feel nice with their body to come, study, and enjoy your stay at Om Shanti Om."

    "Great thanks to all the teachers from Om Shanti Om Yoga School and especially to Dinesh for wonderful, unforgettable yoga classes and all the knowledge I got during my study! Om Shanti Om is gorgeous, filled with skilled teachers, high-level yoga practice, and a real magical atmosphere. I sincerely wish all people who have begun to study yoga, both beginners on the great yoga path and those who are already in love with yoga, meet Dinesh and his Om Shanti Om Yoga School. Once you come to Om Shanti Om, you will always love this school. We love you, Dinesh!"

    "I have known Dinesh for a long time and my dream about the perfect yoga course came true when I visited Rishikesh again. My teacher training course of five weeks was an incredible experience in my yoga life. Each day was unrepeatable. The course helped me to improve my asanas, to get more knowledge about philosophy, to meet a lot of new friends, and to understand more about Indian culture and lifestyle. Great thanks to all the teachers at Om Shanti Om, who know the best way to learn yoga and everything about that. And special thanks to Sarah; without you, Om Shanti Om would never be what it is, you make Om Shanti Om have peace. I wish Dinesh and Om Shanti Om keep being the best yoga school in Rishikesh forever."

    "From my first few classes at Om Shanti Om, I already felt as if I was a member of the family. I will cherish the memories of the three months I spent with this family for the rest of my life. I look forward to returning to Om Shanti Om over the years to harvest the valuable and vast knowledge that Yogi Dinesh has to offer. I feel that after my three months of learning under the guidance of Yogi Dinesh, I have learned not only the practice of asanas, meditation, and mantra, but I even learned a way of life that brings me closer to God with each moment."
