    Rishikesh YTTC

    was not only a yoga school for me, i felt like i am with my family when i was there. They tried to make you happy always with big smile and positive atmoshpere. Location of school is perfect middle of green mountains and close to town, And the teachers are good, they have good yoga knowledge, understanding and motivator.

    And the food are also good, they really take care of students health and all needings. It was on of the best experience for me to meet this wonderful people, yogi Sanjeev, Sandeep, lovely Rani, all good teachers and my lovely yoga family😊

    The program was an extraordinary experience. Perception of time and space vanished and a whole month went by very fast.

    I loved the experience here. I am leaving with a heavy mental tool box prepared to continue and deepen my practice and also persue my teaching aspirations. The course is very humble and you can take away what you make of it. Right at the beginning Sanjeev Ji sets the standards or respect and kindness as well as humble. Leave your western standards aside and immerse yourself. The location is complete with a garden and mountain side which rivals all locations in the city. I will reccomend this course and location to those who ask.

    This was one of the best experiences in my life and i would definitely do it again! I had amazing classes with the best teachers, learned so much about yoga, about life, about myself and i've been surrounded by lovely people! Sanjeev, Sandeep and the whole team took care of us from the first moment on and i felt so welcome! It was a big pleasure and honour to meet them and to learn from them!

    "I Highly recommend RishikeshYTTC! "

    The 24 days were intense, but it was more than worth it. I learned so much. It’s really a life changing experience. The teachers came all the way from Rishikesh, the yoga capital of India, and basically the world. So you get taught by people who grew up in this lifestyle. It’s in their nature and nurture. I’m gonna miss everyone.

    "Great experience "

    Good value, lots of things to do on the schedule and nice location being close to the action but tucked away up the hill.

    Staff and teachers are great, food is excellent.

    Additional activity was nice and the staff tried hard to make sure they captured feedback form the group and acted upon on it.

    "Heaven in Earth. "

    I have done a lot of research to find a good yoga school in India as there are thousands of options. Don’t get confuse, the only thing I can say is that Rishikesh YTTC is one of the best & top leading yoga school in India and also in international level. They have opened a new yoga school in Bali & Italy.

    I don't know from where to start, everything was beyond my expectation. For many people it might be just a review but for me this is my ultimate life changing experience, where i have got peace, happiness and myself.

    Teachers are full of knowledge, food was so delicious, room was beautiful.

    The rooms are comfortable Everything is nearby such as market, cafe, temples, ATM's, shopping, center and many things. Every Sunday school arranges beautiful activities. Staff, teachers, chefs and the management is always there to support you.

    You will not feel that you are far from your family because they always look after you like a family.

    All the people in Rishikesh YTTC is highly trained, experienced and they know what they are doing.

    Most of the people who is working in Rishikesh YTTC, they have international experience from different part of the world and I think that’s the reason, they serve best when it comes to hospitality.

    I would love to come back to do my 300 & 500 hours YTTC.

    The only thing I would say is that don’t come with any expectation because yoga is all about self journey and what ever comes in your path, just take it and go with flow.

    200 hours YTTC. Love.

    "Choose this Yoga School! "

    If you were like me searching for ever online to try and find the right yoga course, it might make it easier for you if I tell you stop searching. You've found it! Rishikesh Yoga Teacher training centre is fantastic. It's hard to know what to write because its all so good. The food is fantastic (hard to control yourself) and the kitchen team are so friendly. The management team treat you like family and are so accommodating. The yoga asana teaching is top quality and is so meticulous. The studios are spacious. They give you a new yoga mat and a terrific book on postures. Special mention to Sony who is an incredible teacher. Pinky lifts the room during mantra chanting and gives her full spirit in every class. Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience, life changing knowledge and a warm stay.

    "Authentic indian yoga in wonderfull bali"

    I recommand this ytt to everyone that wants to learn about authentic indian yoga and phylosophie in an exceptionnel balinese landscape. The classes were amazing. Stimulating and challenging physically and mentally. The teachers are from india. For me, it makes the difference in their teaching Because you really feel that yoga culture is in their blood since they were born. Makes the experience very authentic and rich.

    The villa and rooms were hudge, superb view on the jungle. Next to Rice fields and about 45 min away from wonderfull ubud. Food is always fresh with a great variaty. A big thanks to sandeep and chef wayan they were very kind to ajust all the meals for my diatary differences. Like they say: You are what you eat!

    so thank you for talking care.

    I had a blast i Will miss all the team from rishikesh and puri Saron.

    "Holistic and well-balanced teaching by knowledgable teacher"

    The learning environment and atmosphere created was fantastic for the learning and experiencing of Yoga at a deeper level. Plenty of positive energy was generated throughout the course of training. A group of very dedicated and passionate teachers whom are very knowledgeable in their respective field of Yoga teaching from Philosophy, Pranayama, Asanas, Meditation to Anatomy. There were plenty of opportunities created not only to learn from the teachers but also peers through constant engagement and discussion . A very conducive and inclusive environment where I constantly find and gain new knowledge and peace, mentally and physically. Thanks for the wonderful learning and growth experience! Kudos to the great team from Rishikesh YTTC. God bless :)

    "Amazing school, people & vibes"

    Course - 200hrs YTT Nov19.

    Teachers - really knowledgeable & experienced, inclusive & patient, also very funny - we laughed literally every single day. Also their English was perfect, just need to get used to the accent which is the case anywhere you go. So much love & appreciation for all your knowledge shared with us.

    Management - very honest & helpful, whatever we asked for they provided. A few of us fell ill with cold/flu in the first week due to change in weather & they really looked after us well. Also there were problems with nearby ATMs so some of us couldn’t pay our course fees for a while, which they were completely understanding & patient with. Also when we saw animals on the streets in need (e.g. injured dogs) they responded to our call of help, the school actually supports a local animal hospital. Many thanks for taking such good care of us guys.

    School - in a perfect quiet location tucked away in a corner surrounded by mountain views, but just a 5min walk to the main road with lots of shops & cafes. There was a time we had no water but not for long at all & it was the whole village, not just our school. There are 2 lovely little gardens where we could study & chill as well as a roof top.

    Facilities - it’s India, so you can’t expect western standards, but anything you need you will have.

    Food - absolutely amazing, prepared fresh daily by the wonderful kitchen staff - can’t thank you enough boys & missing it already.

    Only love & gratitude to you all.

    "The best yoga school in Rishikesh!"

    I did my 200YTT in this school in November and I could not choose better!

    The teachers were excellent, I learnt so much from them, the classes were both very rewarding and fun. The food was soooo delicious and healthy. The location is perfect, far enough from the noise of the city, surrounded by mountains but close enough to reach the main street within 10 mins of walking.

    The staff always ready to help with a smile and nice words all the time. Special thanks to the kitchen staff who cooked for us even on our days off when they did not have to and when many people were sick. Also thanks to Sandeep, Ankit and Gopal who did their best to meet all our demands and to make us feel like the family. I appreciate all your efforts you put into us throughout the whole month which has been the best in my life. Thank you! ❤️

    "Incredible experience 200h YTT"

    I have completed my 200h YTT here in November 2019.

    Incredible place with incredible vibe and people - without exaggeration one of the best months of my life. Well designed schedule that’ll give you a strong routine, UNBELIEVABLY knowledgeable teachers and food you can only dream about (prepared by a team of absolute legends).

    Every Sunday is free but you get to do some cool activities organised by the school.

    Sandeep, Ankit, Gopal and Sanjeev are doing a wonderful job managing this school to make everyone feel like a part of one big family.

    You get help, support and love any time a day or night.

    Great location too - far away enough to avoid the noise but close enough to walk to town when you want to. There are gardens outside school to chill or practice in your free time.

    Can’t wait to see you for my 300h!

    "Life changing experience in Bali"

    What an amazing experience! I cannot day enough good things about this program in Bali. Our instructor were knowledgeable and engaging, and knew how to push us to our physical limits. They also knew when we needed a more gentle day or a bonding activity due to a bit of exhaustion ☺️. You can tell they are all committed teachers who care about their students. And on top of it, they’re all hilarious!

    The accommodations were stunning. We were located about 30 minutes outside of Ubud, surrounded by nature and beautiful rice fields. The food was healthy and tasty. Lots of curries, rice, and spiced vegetable dishes. The staff at the resort were kind and helpful as well.

    I also really enjoyed the course content and how it was taught. Learning about anatomy, philosophy, proper alignment and sequencing all felt very intuitive. My physical practice has also never been stronger! I think that’s because our instructors knew how to motivate us.

    I highly recommended Rishikesh Yoga Teacher Training Center to anyone looking to deepen there practice - physical, spiritual and mental!

    I’ve had a wonderful time there, amazing experience, made life time friends there! Teachers are professional and very attentive. The resort is situated in a remote location, so you’re close to the nature and can be focused on yoga practice and studying. We all have become a family within those 3 weeks. Can’t wait to do the yttc300 with this same bunch of lovely people! Hari Om Tatsat! Much love xxx

    The staff and instructors were welcoming and made us feel like family upon arrival. The facilities far exceeded our expectations and the food was delicious (and accommodating to a vegan diet which I appreciated). The location was perfect - close enough to downtown but far enough away to offer peace and quiet, with lots of healthy cafes nearby. We happened to be here during Diwali which was awesome to experience!

    "Rishikesh was beautiful, RYTTC was healing "

    I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to train here with these guys. It was a dream like experience that I will take with me on my life journey. It didn't just by magic change me, but throughout my time here, it opened my heart and mind to a beautiful way of living. It woke me up to how beautiful the life is. For anyone looking for something more in life, this could be an amazing part of your journey. Fair warning, it's not for the faint hearted. It requires discipline, surrender and hard work. Also India itself isn't for those who aren't happy with the basics - if you are looking for a relaxing spa yoga camp, look else where. The days are long, but the feeling on completion is amazing. If you want to learn, to really learn and meet some awesome people who are all working to be the best version of themselves then give yourself the gift of this experience.

    That's before I start talking about the amazing teachers and staff in RYTTC - I won't give it all away. All I can say is to be brave and take the jump! Trust yourself and trust the journey.

    "Life Changing Experience with and Amazing Yoga School"

    I went to do the YTTC to become a yoga teacher but in the end I got that plus millions of other amazing things out of the experience with Rishikesh YTTC. Our teacher were qualified and full of knowledge. They were all very talented and warm hearted. They actually motivated me a lot in my own practice which is a big plus.

    The program with Rishikesh YTTC was well planned and versatile from three different yoga styles to pranayama, mantra chanting, meditation etc. All the people at school were very helpful and made sure that this experience ran smoothly.

    Our room was basic and clean. Everything you need - bed and shower. If you are looking for a luxury holiday retreat, this isn't for you haha.

    Food was prepared well making sure no one would get sick. The food was very good as well. Lacking little bit of protein but that's ok, it still tasted yummy.

    Location was good too as it was near the mountains, a bit away from the noisy town. So there was peace and calmness around.

    Sundays were our days off and they were for activities. We visited a temple, waterfall and did bits and pieces. Rishikesh is a beautiful little place!!

    I highly recommend this school if you are looking for a life changing experience plus to become a yoga teacher! :)

    Accommodation:

    Nishant Garden has good view, and there’s also another new building called Escape hill and it does not have garden view but the facilities are new and there’s washing machine and dryer. I was living in Escape hill. The room is clean and simple, but just because of the rain season, things in room are easily get mouldy. And I think there’s little flea or dust mite make my skin itchy. Maybe everyday cleaning room service is needed for no sunlight room. But it’s already good and I believe the school will improve it.

    總括來說住的地方很不錯,挺乾淨的,只是因為雨季,而且我的房間面向沒有太陽的一邊,所以房間比較溼氣重。但很喜歡學校有月中小會,可以讓同學反映不足。很快的學校就因此買了乾衣機,非常值得嘉許。

    Food:

    Food is the most important thing. And no doubt the food is super yummy and full of love from chef- Nari. There’s nothing I can say about food because it’s too good:)

    那裡的食物非常好食,Nari廚師用他的愛去煮每日的食物,雖然是印度餐,但也會常常有不同的長通粉和其他菜式,不會覺得悶。而且也乾淨,在印度一個月都沒有肚瀉,真的實在沒有什麼好挑剔,十分好:)

    Course:

    This course is so good with professional and experienced teacher, and it was so fun to do asana with classmates and teachers. Also teacher taught us how to massage and it’s so worthy to apply course here and I’ll come back for 300 hours.

    課程內容包括3種主要yoga,而且老師很厲害和有經驗,是一個非常值得報讀的課程。在Rishikesh一個比較靈氣的地方,很多看法和人生觀都會因為改變,而且會上哲學課,會令你更加明白人生與瑜伽是相輔

    "Incredible Yoga Experience"

    That's why they will push and motivate you, giving their utmost best, sharing all their knowledge without holding anything back, and it is just such an amazing feeling when you see your body, mind and will power slowly become stronger day by day. I also think it’s great that the teachers take a lot of time for the students after each class has finished which is very helpful when you have any personal doubts.

    Now coming to my fellow course participants --- I don’t think I can say that I have ever met that many wonderful, kind, loving and supporting people at once in one place. We all struggled at one point or another, each one having our little mental breakdowns, but that was okay, because we had each other and everybody really truly cared for each other out of the depths of their heart. When I came to Rishikesh I was more focused on myself and my own practice and if you’d had told me then what I was about to experience in the following weeks, I would have told you that’s impossible. I really didn’t expect to find a family on the other side of the world and honestly, had quite much given up on the idea. But this course, the people, the entire experience really built me up again and that makes this entire month just so pure, valuable and unforgettable for me. I’d give you 12/10 points, thank you for everything guys, namaste, and hopefully, see you soon!

    My favorite part about RYTTC was the feeling of family. From the moment I arrived until the moment I left, I consistently felt like I was where I needed to be. That feeling was no coincidence either. We were welcomed in with open arms and helped with anything we needed. I can't say enough about RYTTC, go and see for yourself!

    "Fantastic Retreat"

    The whole program far, far exceeded expectations. I was skeptical coming in, given how saturated the Rishikesh area is with YTT courses. Any course could easily cut corners on quality of instruction, quality of food, etc. But RYTTC was wonderful. Considerate, knowledgeable, fantastic instructors; an incredible spread of buffet-style food; a bright, calm studio; functional utilities and accommodations. We met students from other schools, and ours was clearly above-average in just about every way. It's hard to imagine that there's a better course in Rishikesh, especially at this price point.

    Its such a great opportunity to go deeper with your practice and to absorb all the knowledge from amazing teachers. Each class was a blast for me.

    For me - the most amazing thing about this place was the people and the location. Sure you could do a yoga course anywhere else in the world but the quality of the teachers here were 100/100. Not only that, the whole place brings the kind of energy and positivity you want and need. I have so much respect for each and every teacher who were all knowledgable and wise. The staff at the school could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Anything they could, do they would. Meals were really good too!

    "Stop your search now, book this school!!!"

    incorporating group activities, partner stretching and acro yoga.

    I did a few private Hatha session with Gopal due to my body not coping well with Astanga and I’m so glad I joined his classes. They were hard work but I always left feeling accomplished. Gopal is a very humble man, it was a pleasure to be taught by him. He doesn’t let you slack off which was what I needed and I always got my sweat on!

    Anatomy, this class was a struggle for me, 90% of it definitely didn’t sink in but at the end of the day I still enjoyed going to the class because it was taught by Praful. He is such an inspiring, warm, open, smart man. If you get taught by Praful you will leave feeling blessed. I’ve made a friend in him and I feel grateful for crossing paths.

    The pranayama and mantra chanting teacher Pinkie was such a sweet soul with a voice like an angel.

    The only advice I offer is make sure you’re in good health before you arrive, go into this with no expectations and prepare your mind for a tough month, it’s not going to be easy but it’s going to be completely worth it.

    We were lucky enough to attend a wedding, see the Himalayas and white water raft during our stay.

    Prepare yourselves for a lot of dancing, laughing, hugs, challenges and adventures. Come here with an open mind and you will leave here with an even open/full heart like I have. Thank you once again to everyone that helped me on my journey, I will be back. Om shanti, with love Soph 💓💓

    "Yogi family"

    It's not hard to find a yoga school in Rishikesh, but it's extremely difficult to find a good one. And my time at RYTTC was amazing.

    The curriculum went beyond many other schools', both in content and quality. The course was challenging but manageable and all the information felt worthwhile to learn.

    The staff were probably the best part of the experience. Everyone was so welcoming and like a family from day one. Almost everyone in our class got sick at one point and the staff bent over backwards to help make us feel better.

    The teachers were also amazing - learning from yogis with such passion and dedication was inspiring. I entered the program to learn more about yoga and deepen my practice but my growth far exceeded any expectations I had.

    "It's India"

    I loved the setting, the food, the other students and the instructors. Everyone was really friendly, kind and thoughtful. I love Sandeep too. Their hearts are so pure with love for all the students, and it shows immensely.

    First, if my rating is low - it is not a reflection on the people. I'm just trying to give you a clear perspective. One I don't like Ashtanga yoga, but I thought I could deal with it. (lol) They do push you, but I am not of the philosophy of "no pain, no gain" You have the option to not - which I often didn't keep pushing. Pace yourself - you know your body.

    I wish the classes had been outlined more. I did learn things, but lots of things weren't covered. It is fine - I know it is a short period of time. It's hard to cover it all. This is a starting point for your yoga career - if you so choose.

    But it is a compassionate school, and even though they have new folks every month, it is your family for a month, and you will make life long friends. Open your heart and take that leap.

    Young, talented teachers, traditional Hatha yoga in an environment where the Yogi’s actually practice what they teach! The history and philosophy of Yoga, the 8 limbs and what this means for Yoga practitioners, Asana’s, Pranayama’s, Mantras and cleansing practices. With some Ashtanga Vinyasa thrown in just to keep you on your toes!! Good accomodation, family atmosphere - great group! Rishikesh is amazing and if you’re serious about yoga has to be experienced - the holy heartland of yoga.

    "An eye-opening and life changing experience."

    I would 100% recommend this course at Rishikesh YTTC! This month changed my life and it wouldn't have been possible without the amazing and friendly team there! Not only was the food, place, accommodation and vibe perfect, yet even the extra excursions (waterfall, movie night, temple in the mountains), activities (zumba, water rafting) and constant help and support from the team made this such a beautiful and memorable trip! Rishikesh is truly magical and I couldn't have chosen a better place and course. I will definitely be coming back!!!

    "Very good yoga teacher training"

    The training was great, positive vibe and deep knowledge of yoga from the teachers. I will definitely go there again.

    "Very good experience!"

    So, it’s important to remember that this course, as well as most courses in Rishikesh, are the cheapest you will find. For the price, it is an excellent program. You’re looking at 40-50 USD per day for 8 hours of instruction, 3 meals, and accommodation. For that price, you cannot expect a 5 star resort and restaurant. That being said, I found the taste, variety, and effort of the food and kitchen staff incredible. I also found my room very comfortable. Always had hot water and a beautiful view of the mountains. Course highlights for me include philosophy with Mohit Ji, as he was a knowledgeable and respectful instructor, ending the day with beautiful mantra chanting with Pinky Ji, Ashtanga and Hatha classes, and beginning the day with meditation. Most of the instructors were kind, patient, knowledgeable, and motivating.

    The administrative staff was always ready to help when students had problems. I was sick and they offered to take me to the doctor and even arranged for a staff member to go to town and pick up medicine for me. The Sunday activities were a nice bonus.

    Finally, the schedule is intense at times (sometimes you just feel so tired and want to rest) but I found it just the right amount. In fact, I craved more material at times. Instructors are understanding if you need to sit out for a class and just watch when sick.

    Despite a few flaws, this was one of the most formative months of my life. It allows the time and space for serious self discovery.

    I absolutely loved the 200 hour teaching course at Rishikesh YTTC. If you go in with an open mind and heart, and are eager to learn, you will not regret it! The staff and management are full of love, and go above and beyond to make it the best experience for everyone. Plus they throw great dance parties and awesome Sunday activities. The food was AMAZING - the chefs are worth their weight in gold. The teachers in the course are excellent and very knowledgable. And the school location is fantastic, in a quiet part of town surrounded by mountains, trees and gardens.

    "Exceeded Expectations "

    Wow. I don’t even know where to begin with this. I absolutely loved my time at RYTTC (so much so that I stayed in Rishikesh an extra week, and still hung out around school). My room was great, the food was absolutely delicious and the guys in the kitchen work so so hard to provide the best dishes. The teachers were nothing short of amazing. Our practical teachers Rohit and Sonu are so insanely knowledgeable, talented and are good with reading the energy of the class. Sandeep, Sanjeev, Ankit, and Gopal helped us out a lot, whether it was needing to go to the doctor, having to run into town or simply having to get money changed. They were always there to help, and extremely patient. I can’t thank you guys enough for such an amazing month, and i couldn’t be happier with my classes and classmates. Already looking forward to coming back! Thanks for everything ♥️♥️

    "A review of the YTTC "

    I am very happy with the course overall. The staff was amazing and I found a great sense of connection. At the beginning there were some doubts on my side for my decision to go to India and complete this course. After the first few days this doubt faded away and I started enjoying the process. I was very happy for the quality of the teachings involved, especially in regarding the asana practices. The teachers put great emphasis on doing the postures correct and therefore maximizing the therapeutic value as well as minimizing the risk of injury. In addition I learned many applicable and very useful techniques that are applicable in day to day life, that are very valuable. Also the holistic approach impressed me. I learned to listen to my body at a deeper level and this allowed me to bring forth the best of me. After this month I can surely say I feel much better overall and am happy to have taken part. I felt loved and accepted and made great connections in the process. I was given the opportunity to test my limits in a safe environment were I got to experience where my limits are. Before coming to this course I have already implemented several habits that are improving my life such as meditation and healthy eating. One things that I kept putting of was waking up on time. During this month this new practice has become part of my being and I am committed to continuing a regular sleep schedule in my personal life. The structures and routines were very helpful to me. Namaste :)

    "A truly life changing month"

    This was truly a life changing month for me and exactly what I needed to experience at this point in my life. All staff members were outstanding and went above and beyond to make us feel at home and took us in as family. They were quick to resolve issues and I always felt like they genuinely cared about making our stay as comfortable as possible. The instructors were excellent, the food was above and beyond and the classes were filled with knowledge about yoga as a way of life, not just a physical practice.

    Go in with no expectations and an open mind and heart and it will be impossible to be dissapointed. Most of all, embrace the whole experience with positivity and love your classmates for the special journey they are on alongside you. Thank you Rishikesh and RYTTC, you will live in me forever. Xoxo

    "Beyond grateful for this experience with this program"

    Let’s get real, this place is about the energy of the people. The group I was in had a huge impact on the experience. The staff were excellent in setting the tone for what I found to be an incredibly humbling and beautiful month. There was such a family vibe here I never felt like I needed anything more. If you’re looking for a perfect comfortable experience then maybe don’t go to India. If you’re looking for an authentic and sometimes challenging for the western perspective experience, look no further. You will not regret a minute of this if you come into it with an open mind and heart.

    "The best experience ever"

    there is no better place in all of Rishikesh (or the world) for learning yoga and the incredible experiences than RYTTC. The energy of the ashram feels immediately like home and all of the staff (i can't even call them staff but rather friends and family) are extremely supportive and kind and hilarious and you are in the best hands from day 1. They meet all of your accommodations with a smile and genuine heart. The ashtanga and hatha instructors are incredibly well versed in their subjects and i have learned so much from them. There is nothing I can complain about RYTTC. Come to Rishikesh with an open mind and heart and you will have an experience of a lifetime.

    "Overall a Wonderful Experience"

    I honestly did not know what to expect when I signed up for this yoga teacher training, but I was pleasantly surprised and would definitely recommend the school to anyone who is looking for a month of immersing themselves in yoga, and learning more about themselves. I liked pretty much everything about the school. They were very accommodating and responsive to all our needs, from Sandip, Sanjeev, Rani, to Ajay and everyone else; they all made sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible.Thank you so much for working hard to create a positive environment and helping in making sure that we could focus on our learning. The food was amazing! The schedule was intense (but in the best way possible)! I learnt so much, and my life back home is that much better for it. Thank you so much RishikeshYTTC! I am forever grateful for all of you and the friendships that were built in that one month. Love Carol

    "Wonderful experience"

    It's hard to put in words, because you simply need to experience it yourself. Everything is very different here. People are so nice and friendly, relaxed, no rush, no stres, the whole town is in zen, even the dogs are in zen, so calm, so well behaved...This place is like meca for people with good intentions, who came here to find some inner peace, to connect their minds, bodies and souls, to recharge and just be present in this moment. I know it may sound utopian, but the energy here truly is incredible. The athmosphere is so purifing for the soul, I felt it on my first day..and it stayed with me until my last day. There is something about this place that can open your mind in a way you have never imagined.. the school, the people who work here, the teachers, the classes...I have learnt so much, not just about yoga, but also about myself and everything that truly matters in life. It exceeded all my expectations.

    "Amazing experience"

    It was a beautiful experience and I will never forget the kind hearted, genuine people there; I'm pretty sure me and my boyfriend are gonna go back.The school is very well organized, the teaching plan was intensive and I've learned a lot, I definitely deepened my knowledge on yoga philosophy,pranayama,got very detailed instructions on yoga asanas and progressions, lot about injury prevention, dealing with injuries,yoga therapy and so much more.The teachers were excellent; amazing teaching methods and awesome atmosphere on classes. The Staff (I don't like calling them staff ,rather brothers and sisters) were just the most beautiful souls ;they helped us so much when my boyfriend got sick (appendix issue). They spent the whole night and day in a hospital with us talking to doctors, walking around the whole building to get the test results and arrange everything as quick as possibile. We are so thankful for that and everything else we didn't expect to get help with. We loved our room with a balcony,huge windows and a nice view. The surrounding was beautiful and quiet,close enough to make a walk downtown for a coffee when we had a break between classes. We also totally loved the food at school; it was so yummy everything was based on fresh veggies.Also the Christmas dinner was so beautiful,we're so thankful for that. I definitely recommend Rishikesh and this school to everyone, you'll be in good hands and you will learn a lot.

    I had the most amazing experience at Rishikesh YTTC. The teachers really knew there stuff and made lessons exciting and interesting. The school and team are such genuine kind people - they were so accommodating and really went out their way to make us feel comfortable and make sure all our needs were met and even threw a birthday party for one of the students, set up a movie night for some of the students, have a big Christmas Eve celebration. They really went all out. I’m not sure what other places were like but I was told the accommodation was excellent for the area. It was a little cold but it’s the middle of winter so it’a expected but I was comfortable and it was always clean. The food was AMAZING!!! Absolutely delicious and probably one of the highlights of my trip. I went there to deepen my practice and learn about yoga and the philosophy behind it and I learnt so much more! I highly recommend the experience and the training centre itself :)

    "200 hour teacher training"

    I enjoyed the one month experience with Rishikesh YTTC family! The staff was very attentive to all student needs during our stay and were always friendly and approachable. The teacher training is perfect for students who come with not much knowledge on yoga philosophy, anatomy, ashtanga and hatha yoga and mantra chanting. I learned so much in the course! Completing the course has provided me with a stronger foundation for my personal practice and provided me with tools I can use as a teacher.

    The food was amazing and the chefs were so nice to us! The Sunday optional activities were also fun :)

    The Rishikesh Yoga Teacher Training Center is a place of beauty, determination, support and transformation. The teachers are talented, detailed, patient and incredibly encouraging. The staff is the same- people that care about each student and do their best to provide a safe, comfortable and enjoyable environment to experience yoga training. I enjoyed all of my classes (yes, it was still difficult to get up so early everyday!) and without teachers that made learning and practicing enjoyable- I could not have sustained such an intense schedule. This is a magical place!!

    "The BEST yoga teacher training program in RISHIKESH <3 "

    My experience was amazing. I had no expectation of what my time would be like there but it was so much more than I could have imagined. There was so much love. From the teachers, the staff, all the other students. I felt so comfortable there. You really could feel the love in the air because of how genuine and authentic everyone was. Rishikesh itself is such a magical place. Also, the food was amazing. I had spoken to a few others who had been in the class prior to the one I was in and they said their food was so bland and what not. But ours was the exact opposite. They prepared so many delicious dishes with so many different flavors and you could truly feel the love in the food. We had different celebrations with chefs for no reason sometimes. It was so special. I plan to go back to Rishikesh YTTC for my 300 hour course sometime next year. Thank you Rishikesh Family <3

    All the people involved with the course were on hand at any time to lend advice, leadership or human understanding. They really go the extra mile. The whole setup of the Ashram was perfect as it was close enough to town but away from the noise of the traffic. It is situated up a hill and close to nature. The place has a real good energy. The content from the teachers was fruitful and very easy to digest. The pace of teaching was good and allowed for good self practice time. Thanks for everything Rishikesh Yoga teacher training.

It was a quiet and peaceful escape that allowed us to focus on our classes away from the hectic city. The food was always healthy, delicious and ready for us to eat when we finished. I truly enjoyed all of our classes. I appreciate the patience and wisdom every teacher brought to the course.

    Our location was separate from the main school, but the staff was always available to help us with any issues. A special big thank you to Gopal for always being there!

Teachers are amazing, each of them has a lot of knowledge in their fields and it's been an absolute pleasure going to class everyday. Trough the intense program, going trough some demanding and "interesting" emo days here and there:) trying to keep up with everything, we were always treated with nothing but love from everyone in the school. Location is perfect! Short walk from town, just far enough to be surrounded by spectacular nature & close to waterfalls. Not sure why ppl complain about the food, I loved every single meal & found it very well balanced and mostly by ayurvedic principles. Just thinking about it, ahh.. miss it so much!!! :) All the staff is absolutely wonderful, they always went an extra step in accommodating us and helping us if we needed anything. Rani is a ray of sunshine, haha.. only one among many staff members. My gratitude is beyond words. Thank you so much once again.. I will be back soon! Love and light & bless you all! 🙏

    The whole team works so hard and so well, with a level of professionalism and kindness that it makes this experience more than unique, unforgettable!! Strong dedication, passion, deep knowledge, true love drive them all and gave us the best way to become yoga teacher but also to spend a very enjoyable time together. Special thought for Rani who was a daily sunshine! ;) Each single one brings attention, care and is always available but also flexible which is important. Thanks to all of that we had this feeling (and it remains today), to be naturally part of a family. It looks that it was a very precious aspect that supported and empowered each one to go through his personal and group journey to become yoga teacher. I couldn't expect a group experience like the one we had! If we add the quality of teaching and knowledge, I just feel grateful but also ready for what's next: a huge thanks again because that's a life change.

    Moreover, this place is probably one of the best in Rishikesh to learn yoga because it's quiet, surrounded by nature, with incredible views and sunrise (+ rooftop and garden to practice). This is not far at all from the city center which is convenient too.

All served food was really delicious, everything vegetarian and nutrient. Thanks to great teachers, especially yogi Mohit, I learned a lot about basics and philosophy of yoga and also Hatha and Ashtanga classes were exceptional! Teachers are really friendly and knowledgeable. The staff, Sandeep ji, Gopal ji and all the team are really nice and caring, always trying to create positive atmosphere and make us happy.

    I honestly loved every single moment of my stay in India, and I was super emotional and sad when leaving. It has been one of the most amazing things I have ever done for myself! All practical classes were amazing, both the Hatha and Ashtanga teacher were great and very professional, and I have learned so much in this 1 months practice with them. The staff were in general super positive and they all created an magical atmosphere. The Philosophy classes were interesting and the Adjustment and alignment classes were full of useful information.

    Lunch and dinner were great, could be a little bit more spicy, but otherwise great.

    What made my trip amazing, were all the amazing people I met there. RYTTC created such a nice and warm atmosphere, and I went home from there with 40 new best friends, who I am definitely all going to see again at some point. I feel like I have learned a lot about yoga and about myself and I am ready to spread my love for yoga and life with all my friends, family and students at home in Denmark.

    I really enjoyed my time here. I loved immersing myself into a different culture. The yoga classes we challenging. They took everything I thought I knew about yoga, threw it out the window, and taught me from the ground up. I’ve learned so much about yoga and myself and I’ve also gained a new level of strength within myself. The staff was so friendly (family like) and accommodating. Even when I got food poisoning (not from the school) they made sure I got to the doctor and made sure I was fed and checked on me frequently. I made so many personal connections with other students. I’d definitely recommend this course. It’s worth the price on the experience alone.

The staff greeted us with outstretched arms, open hearts and the biggest smiles. Whatever problem you have they'd do anything to help you and beyond. Besides that it was very enjoyable to spend time with them and learn some hindi or garhwali. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and radiate a calm and wise happiness. I don't know how to transfer my experience into words...I loved everything! The people the school, Rishikesh, the food, the music, the dancing...go there and meet my family!

Praful ji(Anatomy), Chitrangana ji (pranayama and Meditation) , Dhirender ji and Sachin ji (methodology) instilled the confidence for teaching. The entire support team Gopal ji, Rani , Ankit ji, Sandeepji and kitchen staff were always available to resolve any queries. The warmth and love made us feel like home in Rishikesh. Ever grateful for a memorable time, and great learning atmosphere!

    "A beautiful profound journey"

    My month of September 2018 was amazing because of RYTTC, seriously I don't think I've said enough thanks to them, and I truly feel now I have a family in India. The staff was super helpful and warm, always try their best to provide whatever we needed. The accommodation wasn't the best in our western standards of course but please think about how Indian locals living condition, I'd say the school already was trying their best as they could! I appreciated it and have no complaints. I loved ALL our teachers, they were somewhat eye-opener to me, I've learned so much from them, not just yoga asanas but as a being. Food throughout the whole month was amazing, I loved the fact of the owner Sandeep is a professional chef, he really knows what kind of healthy balance yogi food we supposed to have, and I also loved that once in a while he spoiled us with his special dinner treats. It was my first time in India, I felt surprisingly comfortable, and because of them, I will be returning to India with my big shiny smile to my family of Rishikesh.

    What I liked most about my time at RYTTC was the people. The staff, the teachers, the people I did the training with were all great. Nothing was ever too much trouble, they were all happy to help with anything and made a warm loving environment to be in.

    The classes were great, I learnt so much in such a short time.

    the staff as individuals were wonderful beautiful souls, very caring. the accommodation staff were a bit 'too nice'. uncomfortable and creepy to be honest.

    Everything was amazing, all of the staff really treat you like family and it was so difficult to leave in the end! The yoga teaching was brilliant, traditional and was really in depth. They even allowed me to stay for the first few days of the september course and help out in some of the classes which was a great experience! Can not recommend enough the RYTTC family for a traditional, balanced and incredible rishikesh yoga experience.

    Amazing mountain views. Quiet area. I really liked the group activities on the weekends. It attracted people from all over the world and so it was a very mixed and interested group, that merged in one soul.

    I liked the everyday challenges, detailed teachings and open hearted people.

    "A new home where magic happens "

    At RYTTC you don’t just go and do yoga and study.

    Here you will find a new family. A place where you feel home and secure, loved and guided.

    A place where yoga stops being something that you do, but becomes something that you are.

    The teachers, the staff, the food, simply everything is more than amazing!

    Choosing To come here was one of the best decisions in my life and I am more than grateful for everything that I experienced!

    The time at RYTTC will always have a very special place in my heart and I can’t wait to come back!

    If you want to experience pure yoga, have the time of your life, a lot of fun and find peace and love within you,

    Come here and let the magic happen to you as well!

    There is something magic about that place, you become a part of them and you become family, there is quality in the teaching and though is an intensive course you will learn more than you are aware of. This is the place you want to experience your journey of yoga. They will teach you the real yoga! The transformation.

    "No better place to learn Hatha and Ashtanga"

    From the moment I arrived I was made to feel at home and I really did. Sanjeev, Sandeep and their team went above and beyond to make everyone comfortable and to make sure no one got sick.

    The quality of the food was impeccable and the flavours were absolutely incredible; enough to make this meat eater vegetarian!

    The class schedule was definitely intense but very rewarding and nothing that couldn’t be done. There was support for every step of the journey and it was very clear that the instructors were there out of a love and passion for teaching and it showed it all the ways were learned. I will be going back to do more hours when the courses become available, I made a family in my month with YTTC and I wouldn’t dream of training anywhere else.

    "Its an experience surely not to be missed @RYTTC!!"

    I did the 200 hrs, it was immersive, intense, educational, and fun. When i left for this experience i had no idea it was going to have this much of a positive impact on me i wish id booked the 300 hour course. Facilities are by no means five star (and you wouldnt exoect them to be)but its a lot better than one can expect in Rishikesh. If you're thinking about going, go for it you won't regret it ! Big thanks to everyone at ryttc!

    "Amazing Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh!"

    This experience is not good, it's amazing! I am so glad I have chosen this school for my training. Teachers are incredible, so mature, dedicated, and professional. They are amazing teachers of course but also amazing human, I will never forget what they teach to us during this intensive month regarding the Asanas practice but also the spirituality. Because yes the month will be intense. You will be practicing and studying from Monday to Saturday, from 5:30 am to 7:00 pm. Sunday is off with generally one activity planned if you want to participate. As they said when we arrived we are all beginners for them so don't worry you start everything from the beginning. If I have one advice to give and that can help, is to get familiar with sanskrit name of the posture if you can before to arrive. Just for Surya Namaskar (Sun salutation) A + B for exemple. You will feel more confortable as you will have to learn the sanskrit name for your practice ;) Teachers are very helpful and as I said they don't make any difference between beginners and more advance people, you all start from the beginning so don't worry. Management team from the school is very helpful and as they said when we arrived "Forget the West you are in India now". So be open minded, be respectful, be tolerant. If you have any problem they can help you but ask for help before to complain. The cook and food is incredible! So many things to say but no more room! Wish you all the best and make the best of it!Namaste

    Everything was excellent. It was the best decision of my life.

    I' ve never felt that grounded, peaceful and happy. I fell in love with Rishikesh, our school, and the people there. The teachers were excellent, friendly, helpful and always here to answer to your questions and advice you. I don't like Indian food at all! The school team was just amazing. Each person I met there touched my heart and soul in a certain way. Thank you for beign such beautiful souls. We were more than a family, a soul family. I didn't feel bad or alone or stressed or sad at all. People were always here to help you and support you whatever the situation (health, practic, spirituality, emotions, pain, feras..) they were always here to listen to you, they open their heart and arms to you and it's so satisfying. I can write for hours about this amazing experience. Some moments can not be described in words, but only felt...

    It was such an amazing month. Like a family, I'm so grateful that I found this place. The staff was super friendly and always there for all of us. In addition to our teachers gave us the best knowledge and the best experience. Last but not least Nari our cook spoiled us with his delicious food not only for the three officials meals also for tea time he surprised us with his cooking skills. Such a good vibe at the school and the whole group. It was a life changing month for me, I definitively highly recommend this YTT school!

    "Unforgettable experience "

    This training can't be overestimated, everything was just on top. Most important, organizers and all the stuff did everything to create not just friendly, but a family like atmosphere among everyone, and they really succeded in it!

    The stuff was always there to support and help with ANY issue! Special BIG THANK to Sandeep ji! And also to Gopal ji, Sanjeev ji, Ajay ji, Ankit ji, Rani ji and every single person working there!

    Also the teachers were just great. Very lively and opened, loving what they do, very sensitive and attentive to all our questions and needs.

    In a very short time I gained a good deal of knowledge, inputs and inspiration for teaching and for my own practise.

    And the food... It was just delicious! Will not be an exaggeration to say that I never ate so tasty and healthy in my whole life! And this despite the fact that it was fast completely vegan, just sometimes with some milk products like milk in masala tea or paneer cheese.

    All in all, I don't regret a second to have chosen this place to do the training and I already want back... Thanks ever so much guys for your heartiness, generousity and for your great work!

    It was an unforgettable experience, all classes were excellent, the work material, the practices and all the topics are explained in detail.

    The food was more than delicious, the chefs are wonderful, it was the most amazing food I ate in rishikesh.

    the school is very close to the city, in a very quiet place, with green areas and fresh air.

    If I had the opportunity I would repeat this experience again and again, I do not regret having traveled so many hours. It's like being with an immense family learning yoga, full of love, good experiences, support and incredible moments.

    This was the best yoga experience I have had so far. Maybe because I am not into yoga that long. But probably just because this place is the best.

    As a semi beginner all classes were good to handle. But I think you can practice yoga anywere you want. It are the people who made this month so amazing. IT felt like I have a complete new family from day one! Eventough India is in december much, much colder than I expected. The love of all the people Will keep you warm. Thank you everyone!

    "An unforgettable stay"

    I will always keep these 4 weeks in Rishikesh and especially at the RYTTC in good memory. I am a yoga beginner and have learnt a lot about yoga during this time, both in terms of physical exercises and theory. I now have a good basis to continue practicing yoga. All teachers gave their best and could teach me more about yoga than I expected.

    The school is very quietly and peacefully situated on a hill and the city is only a few minutes walk away. The room was simple and well-equipped and in line with my expectations. A hot shower was always available. I was very happy because the rooms are not heated and the nights in December get very cold.

    The food was excellent and have increased my well-being in these 4 weeks noticeably. All teachers and staff were so cordial and attentive to us that it was hard for me to say goodbye. I would like to come back one day and can and will recommend the school without reservation.

    Namaste, Christoph

    The 200 hours yoga teaching course with the Semwal family was a fantastic experience that I will remember my whole life. Sanjeev, Sandeep & wonderful Rani where always there, helping, laughing & caring. There was nothing that they wouldn't help one with. I felt really comfortable from the first moment I got picked up at the airport and am really grateful for everything that has happened to me within those for weeks. Aspecially getting to know so much about the Indian culture which I did had not expected was an extra gift for me. Furthermore the classes and the teachers where really high qualitativ and I feel like I learned really a lot! Every teacher seemed to be really professional in his object and they always had so much more to say than time was... on top of this the food was adorable. No words for that. Rishikesh is a holy town which has a really special spirit. One is surrounded by mostly very friendly and happy people, stunning Ganga, Tempels and the mountains. Here you really have the opportunity to dive in to this culture and get to know the spirituality around and within yoga. I would always come for this experience again , thank you for everything ❤️🙏🏼

    This training was just amazing, life changing. The staff is kind and helpful. The teachers are great, classes are interesting, you learn a lot. This training plants a seed, a seed of happiness, of knowing yourself and improving yourself in every way. And build the foundation of yoga so you can share this to others in the future.

    It’s an authentic experience of yoga, which is what I was looking for. And I have a crush now about mantra chanting !

    Accommodation are nice and the food is absolutely delicious.

    One month ago I took the plane to reach Rishikesh, the birth place of Yoga. At this moment I just had the idea to reconnect with my innerself and I did ! I am so grateful to have lived this experience with Rishikesh YTTC and with all the beautiful souls I met there. I enjoyed every single moment, the class, the meals, the activities, sharing amazing moments with everybody, the staff and all the students, walking in Rishikesh, meeting people and talking with them for hours. Much love, many smiles, many hugs, I found much more than a teacher training programm in here. Everybody do his best to help and to make us feel at home. Rishikesh is so magic. We can feel the energetic power of mountains all around, especially the powerfull connection with mother Ganga and the spirit of all the great yogis. If you are looking for a great human experience, go there. Thank you Sanjeev, Rani, Sandeep for this month, I will go back soon for sure ;-)

    Fuí sin ninguna expectativa, por lo que todo lo que vino fue increíble para mi... me llevo conmigo gente increíble que han hecho que mis 28 días pasarán volando.

    Las clases que más me gustaron y de las que más he aprendido han sido las de hatha, asthanga y filosofía, quizás por como los profesores nos motivaban y daban las clases, la energía y el buen royo que había. La comida, bueno... al principio increíble, picante y a pesar de ser comida vegetariana tenía muchísimo sabor... luego cambiaron de cocinero y la comida fue más repetitiva y con menos sabor. Pero en general bien.

    El staff y sobretodo mis compañeros increíbles. Gopal Ji siempre atento a nuestras necesidades y con muchísima paciencia. La localización perfecta. Las clases de salsa por la noche y el rafting le pusieron el broche al curso. Las clases con Sanjeev (las de yoga) increíbles, aunque podrían a ver sido más amenudo.
