    It has taken some time to share my feelings & thoughts of what we experienced last month with these amazing teachers & healers, a connection I felt so deeply, the whole experience & how to put it in to words and express my gratitude has been a quandary.

    Uttam, Abhi & Sushant, the powerful impact you had on me and everyone in our group was amazing. However, I can only speak for myself and say what an incredible experience I had, fulfilled with your teachings, knowledge, wisdom, compassion and amazing insight to the world of yoga, meditation & spirituality. Your generosity of time, patience, wisdom, experience & knowledge shared is beyond what I imagined this retreat would bring.

    Adding to my years of practice, yet what you taught was unlike anything else I had experienced.

    Loving India as I do, having traveled here twice a year for many years, this was my first time to Rishikesh & what an amazing, special, unique, beautiful place this is. Quite unlike anywhere I have ever experienced on my travels in the world. It truly speaks to your soul & has left a mark on me and within my thoughts & heart everyday.

    I continue my yoga practice back home, but truly miss your teachings, voice, chants, music & essence of this experience you shared with us.

    Also how it can transform & live within us on a daily basis when we practice these teachings & accept our growth, intuition, strengths, vulnerabilities, weaknesses, love & the power to let it be...

    I speak with gratitude & love for the experience of having the daily teachings with you guys & cannot wait to return to Rishikesh...

    My opportunity to meet Sushant, Abhi and Uttam has opened my eyes to the scope to which the term Yoga really means. These humble and gracious men taught me about the ancient philosophies, meditation techniques, pranayama, asanas, chanting and in general we're true examples of how to live a Yogic life. Beyond the organised classes I learnt many life lessons, had many many laughs and enjoyed the stories I was told. So many of the things I have learnt from these men have helped me move forward in my life and I will always be grateful. Thank you Rishikesh Yogis. See you when I return!

    I was blessed with the opportunity of learning yoga and meditation with Abhi, Uttam and Sushant in Rishikesh, India in April 2017 during a 10-day spiritual retreat. These three spiritual leaders are the epitome of what a Yogi should be; they have the warmth, compassion, humbleness, generosity, patience, understanding, enlightenment, embodiment and lived experience that is truly inspirational! They live and breathe (literally) their words of yoga philosophy by incorporating it into their daily practice with such ease. Just being in their presence is a tranquil pleasure as they bring such peace and joy in every interaction. Participating in their classes is a soul enriching experience, not only by being immersed in their depth of knowledge, powerful storytelling and incredible use of metaphors; but also as a witness to see these beautiful souls live their life’s calling in such an authentic and effortless way. They truly have a magical gift that they share without hesitation to everyone they come across. I can’t wait to see Abhi, Uttam and Sushant and learn from them again!

    I had the pleasure of being taught by Uttam, Abhi and Sushant at a retreat I attended in Rishikesh. I had absolutely no experience with yoga or meditation before the retreat and these 3 amazing men managed to teach me so much in that time that my life will be changed forever. Like many westerners I was under the belief that yoga consisted of doing poses for an hour or so a day and meditation is sitting quietly trying to stop all your thoughts. I was so wrong! I was introduced to so many aspects of yoga and meditation I didn't know existed, the intriguing in-depth history, how yoga and meditation blend perfectly and how to incorporate it a into every part of my life to get endless benefits and break throughs in my personal life. The retreat had all levels of experience in it, but the teaching is so well done that I never felt like I was left behind. I cannot recommend these teachers high enough as their always happy, loving personalities match their 5 star knowledge and teaching.

    I had the most wonderful opportunity recently to spend time with Yogis Uttam, Abhi and Sushant of Rishikesh Yogis during a 10 day spiritual retreat in Rishikesh in April 2017. These beautiful souls exude such in-depth knowledge, patience, understanding and a passion for sharing and imparting what they know for the benefit of others. They live and embody the essence of true yoga and it clearly radiates from their very being. I was in awe of their teachings and by simply spending time with them, and being in their presence, I felt deep inspiration within myself to continue to grow and expand on my own personal and spiritual journey keeping their words of wisdom very close to my heart.

    I have met and worked with many yoga and spiritual teachers but I could not recommend these dear souls highly enough. I look forward to the day that I return to Rishikesh to reunite with my friends again. Feeling blessed. In love and light. Namaste

    Beautiful souls teaching with such patience and in depth knowledge. I was fortunate enough to meet these amazing humans in India last year. Uttam helped find me a yoga school to do my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training at and then I had the pleasure of learning from him, Abhi & Sushant at the 10 day Spiritual retreat in Rishikesh. I speak so highly of them all as they deserve all the recognition in the world. I had some really big break throughs and believe this was the cherry on top of an amazing trip. If you are looking for kind & caring souls to take you on a journey of growth these gentlemen are who you need to spend time with. I will forever cherish our time together and cannot wait to come back in the near future.

    Uttam is not just a teacher to guide you through yoga postures. He is a true yoga, a philosopher and a deep thinker. Spiritual and professional- one couldn't ask for a better teacher.

    Abhi and Utam are two outstanding humans with a deep commitment to serving humanity. I was fortunate to spend time with them in Rishikesh whilst on a retreat. Their dedication, knowledge and humility has left a deep imprint on me. Additionally they empowered me to do yoga postures that shifted severe sciatica pain and encouraged me to strengthen my core. Blessings and much love, looking forward to bringing you guys to South West Western Australia!

    I really enjoyed Uttam's calm firm directed energy as a yoga teacher. He and Abhishek have helped me believe in my ability to go a deeper level in my yoga practice.

    I am in gratitude to these two amazing men who imparted such support, encouragement, and understanding by just being in their presence.

    My time in Rishikesh with Uttam and Abhishek has completely expanded and changed my yoga practice. I would love to work with both of them some more some time!

    I had the pleasure in meeting Uttam in Oct 2016 during a 10 day spiritual retreat in Rishikesh. He is an amazing individual with such depth of knowledge which he willingly imparts on others. His calm but committed approached ensured I was able to really reach my full potential during this time and the graceful way in which he imparted his knowledge was commendable for one so young. An old soul I'm sure. Thankyou so much Uttam. May you continue on your path with grace and ease and share with many more individual the knowledge you have within. It was a pleasure meeting you. Much love, light and blessings my friend. Namaste. Xx

    I had yoga lessons with Uttam in September during my holidays in Thailand. It was my first time doing yoga and I'm glad I had the chance to be taught by him! Even if you never got in touch with yoga before, Uttam is the perfect teacher for you because he always motivates you and puts much effort in doing your best. It was an inspiring experience I try to keep in touch with.

    Greetings from Germany!

    I had several wonderful classes with Uttam, a calm and generous soul with kind intentions. He showed me the potential I had both physically and emotionally and knows how to encourage people to go further and stronger. Each class, I saw improvement in myself and felt a great sense of purpose and progress! I look forward to the next opportunity to study yoga with Uttam again!

    Wow where do I begin. This was one of the most authentic and life enhancing experiences I have ever had. In a very short month I learned more than I could ever imagine, and I owe it all the the incredible teachers. They truly are the absolute best in their field. I gained so much knowledge just from being in the teachers' presence and by observing their lifestyles it is very clear that they truly practice what they preach. They are extremely dedicated to their students and put a lot of time and consideration into each and every lesson and practice. I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to study with such incredible teachers in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

    I recently did the 200h TTC at this amazing school and I could not be happier with the experience! Uttam is such a nice person and he tries really hard to make sure his students are happy. The teachers and staff are all great and work their hardest to give you the best possible stay. The teachers are experienced and really live the way they teach, which makes it so much more authentic. Sometimes Rishikesh can feel like a yoga factory, but these guys really made me feel that they were more concerned about my learning than the money I payed. They focus on the true core of yoga as a spiritual practice, rather than just the physical aspect of it, and try their best to give you the whole picture in just a short month (prepare yourself for some intense days!). Fortunately the classes are also filled with a lot of laughter. I felt that the curriculum was well-planned and I learned so much in this short time, probably the most well spent money in my life!

    The stay is great in the beautiful ashram Ved Niketan, with simple nice rooms and great yogic food served thrice daily. The energy is so calm and peaceful which really helps to deepen the whole experience. I hope to be able to return one day and keep learning from all of you amazing people who helped me set off on this new journey of mine. Thank you and see you soon!

    Great yoga school that will for sure leave you with a once in a lifetime experience. Uttam is a great teacher that will guide you very professionally through the training. He's also one of the kindest and warmest people I've ever met. It's an intense training but it's all worth it! Thank you for a fantastic experience!

    I recently completed a 200 hour teacher training course with Rishikesh Yogis and I am beyond happy! The program was so diverse and filled with so much knowledge which helped me grow as a person. The teachers are incredibly knowledgeable and are always there for the students and their needs. Another pleasant factor was the accommodation. It was spacious and comfortable which made me feel at ease. Thank you to everyone who was part of this amazing program! I cannot wait to come back :)

    I completed my 200 hour TTC training in April/May 2015. I was blown away by the knowledge and information provided by all the teachers and the level of heartfelt service from everyone associated with Rishikesh Yogis. I was a true beginner to the asanas and was appreciative of their understanding, skill and knowledge Ashish (Hatha, Pranayama & Ashtanga) and Arwind (Ashtanga). I made them laugh and smile. They were both extremely encouraging and for a beginner I totally felt safe, always. Meditation with Uttam consolidated a lot of information for me about the psychic pathways and the importance of stillness and connection with the breath. Deepti, her knowledge and understanding about Hatha, Kundalini and teaching methodology was mind-blowing. Ratheesh, our teacher on philosophy was universally mind-blowing. I told Ratheesh that he is my Guru, so much information and knowledge to consider and process. I enjoyed my time immensely. I'm looking forward to completing my 300hr TTC and 500hr TTC in 2016. My heart is full.

    Ashish was one my teachers at 200 hour yoga teacher training. Though he is younger to me, I consider him an inspirational source. I was so stiff that I was not able to touch my toes. But within that month I gained a little flexibility and was able to touch it. Moreover, the time spent with him has planted a seed in me, which will someday lead me to high standards of yoga.

    I had the pleasure to have Yogi Uttam Ghosh as a teacher for a week stay while in Rishikesh. He embraces all that yoga is. He is very connected to the mind, body, and spirit and is a wonderful teacher. Highly recommend him to all students, beginners to advanced. Namaste.

  • Archie Mexico

    Ashish is an amazing teacher. He has taught me so much that has helped me with my teaching. So talented, very encouraging, funny and teaches good discipline but always knows people's limits. You could not ask for a teacher who embodies what it means to be a yogi more than him. I am so excited to come back and see his school. If you want to learn yoga from a true yoga, this is the place to come! He will be a true brother forever!

  • Amber Kruger United States

  • Maiken Toft Christiansen Denmark

    Rishikesh Yogis Yogshala website

    I have been ever so lucky to have Ashish as my teacher, opening up the world of yoga to me. I was not completely new to the yoga practice before I came to Rishikesh, but it really felt like a new beginning... He has taught me everything in a correct and careful manner, he has helped me build up strength and disciple and perseverance. He has deepened my knowledge of yoga and increased my passion and strive to go even further with my own practice. He is a wonderful, warmhearted and amusing person, but he is also serious and ambitious with his students. I have been sweating, struggling, "cramping", smiling and laughing in his classes, he really brings out all sensations. I would recommend everybody to come and have his teachings, I will surely come to this school!

    I have had the pleasure to be taught yoga under Ashish in May, 2014 for the 200 hour program. He is gentle and kind. Very knowledgeable about yoga. He brings character to the program with his humour. I befriended Ashish during my time in India and am so proud to see him progressing further into his career as a Yogi. I highly recommend practicing with him!!!Namaste my friend and Hari-Om.

    Already twice I had the chance and luck to meet Yogi Uttam while traveling in the Rishikesh area. My daily Yoga class with him was always something special and very uplifting. He knows how to balance and at the same time challenge my practice. I started feeling my body in a different and pleasing way. He made me practicing some asanas I never thought I will be capable of doing.With his individual and spiritual approach he makes me fully aware of the very moment and my inner self. I feel very blessed that we have met and became close friends. He will always be a very special person for me. Namast - Om Shanti
