"Perfect place to start your yoga journey "
All the good things to talk about.
Teachers have a profound knowledge of the subjects and they make sure that it is delivered in the best possible way for everyone to comprehend easily. Everyone is taken care of in RYA. One would enjoy being in classes as there is so much to learn. Classes are designed in a way for it not to be monotonous.
Weekend excursions are bonus.
Without a shred of doubt, this is the best place to begin your yoga journey.
Thankful to all the faculties.
from Canada, March 2020
The food was flawless, the staff and teachers were very knowledgeable and helpful, the outings were fun, the facility was clean and comfortable. So many opportunities to engage with different cultures and meet new people. Great for all Yogi's, beginner and advanced. A lot of the staff went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable. Confident in saying this yoga school is primarily interested in the education and well being of the students. The class schedule was perfectly structured to give 200hr students enough free time to explore and study. So much of the knowledge and experience gained will assist me in my future endeavors and I am eternally grateful for RYA. This will be a moment of my life I will remember forever!

"Soldiers defend lands but Yogi heals souls"
I have a little trouble remembering people's names and usually a picture comes up in my head about what a person is representing
Yogi Satish ji = Sunrise
He is the perfect Yoga teacher because he is there with all his heart for everyone.
Yogi Harmindra Ji = The light
I met him the first day when I arrived and I was tired, annoyed and a little confused
But he looked at me in a way that you just feel that everything will be fine.
Yogi Mohit Ji = The Great Soul
Professor of philosophy
One month is not enough I want him as my teacher for at least 1 to 2 years.
Yogi Yogesh Ji = The voice
Professor of Anatomy he should record his voice because he is such an incredible storyteller.
I want to thank everyone in the kitchen staff,
Yogi Jay and meditation teacher Ankit no one does it more excellently than you all.
And to the next generation Yogi who chooses this school ok if you go there in winter and you can not tolerate cold I have learned that there is no bad weather just bad clothes so be sure to dress warm for the bedrooms can be incredibly cold on nights.
And remember that yoga is a lifestyle and a month is not enough to learn everything but do your best in everything and love yourself through everything. Let go of all expectations and open your heart to see what life wants to teach you. Give these beautiful souls and this place a chance to create new beautiful memories in your life. Maybe you too will be able to look back at this time in your life as I do with a big smile.

"Amazing TTC, much more than expected"
The teachers were very competent, attentive and friendly. The classes were fascinating, explained thoroughly and simply.
The yoga center is located in a quiet area, the rooms were clean and the food was very tasty, healthy and varied.
Sunday activities were interesting, we had the opportunity to spend some fun time with the teachers in beautiful places surrounded by nature.
I especially liked the acroyoga on the beach, near the Ganges. It was amazing to practice in such a beautiful place.
It was heartbreaking to leave the teachers and fellow students after such a dense, rewarding and beautiful month. I'll never forget it, thank you so much, guys, a already miss you. Take care, see you soon!

"A pleasant Surprise"
On my way there, I was feeling a bit nervous, not knowing what to expect. Once I got to the destination I was welcomed by Harmindra ji and instantly I felt comfortable knowing that I was in the right place.
The overall staff and their hospitality was outstanding. They went above and beyond to accommodate all the different type of personalities that were in my program.
Food was simple and delicious and if something wasn’t right, RYA was able to find solutions to make things right.
Classes were my personal favourite part. A lot of information and practical knowledge was shared. The teachers were incredible. They were well educated with great manners. Always willing to help and able to keep the class going at a manageable and enjoyable pace.
Accommodation was way better than I expected based on past experiences.
I am extremely happy that I went with RYA to learn and practice yoga. I feel a lot more confident within my beliefs and my routine. Yoga is a lifestyle and RYA was my stepping stone in achieving exactly that. I hope to come back in the future to further my yoga knowledge and visit some old strangers that started feeling like family by the time I left.
Thank you for a wonderful experience.

"Loved this Retreat "
I thoroughly researched where to go on my first yoga retreat, as I am so short of time and this was going to be a very precious week away on my own to rest from work and utterly indulge in my passion for yoga. Everything about Rishikesh Yoga Association was spot on, the teaching, the food (just amazingly delicious at every meal), the rooms (clean, simple and very comfortable)the hosts, the helpers, the setting, the weather and the whole ambiance - very inclusive but no pressure to be anywhere or do anything other than what you needed. Complete beginners through to advanced yogis were all provided with a very bespoke experience on the mat - teaching at it's best. Plus, the yoga studio provided a beautiful view of the green mountains - simply stunning! I thoroughly intend to go back!

"Beyond expectations! Much more than a yoga program "
Beyond all my expectations! I have loved every moment of this yoga teacher training. First of all the quality of the teaching is amazing. They don’t teach only yoga, they teach a lifestyle, and they share knowledge as well as experience. It’s a lot more than just a teaching, during the month you will get the chance to know the teachers and to learn a lot from them.
The place is fantastic. The building is beautiful and clean and they provide you with everything you need. You can walk to the market on your time off and even bath in the Ganga (always refreshing!) Everybody is very considerate and thoughtful and they make you feel better than at home.
A special mention to the chef : the food was delicious, fresh, cooked daily with love and skills. I miss it already
On our days off they planned some perfect activities so we can really experienced India. It was much more than just a yoga program.
