    PROS Pros: It's hard to put into words how much I enjoyed my time in Siddha Yoga Peeth. From the first moment Shailendra and his team made me feel very welcome. They really managed me to feel home far from home and enjoy every moment. I want to thank everybody again for the amazing time I had, for being so patient and great teachers for me, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you Shailendra, Raja, Monu and everybody who made my stay unforgettable: You are such wonderful people! I really can recommend this resort for everybody!

    "I've just completed a 3 day yoga retreat at Siddha Yoga Peeth and loved it! The yoga classes were demanding yet relaxing and energising, the visit to the caves and Ganges was very special. I very much appreciate how Shailendra and his team went out of their way to make sure I didn't miss out on anything (despite having odd arrival / departure times) and made sure I was happy and comfortable. If I am fortunate enough to visit Rishikesh again, this is where I will be staying."

    "I had the most amazing 24 days at Siddha Yoga Peeth. This was my first visit to India, and a beginner to Yoga and Meditation, everyone made me feel welcome, I would highly recommend Siddha Yoga Peeth to anyone who wants to learn yoga or has been doing it for years but would like to improve."

    "Vimel, our teacher, was brilliant in showing us all, I am now hooked on yoga and feel 100% better and relaxed (as Vimel would say it's all in the mind...). Since being back I have taken up yoga on a weekly basis.. working on my Head stands.By the end of my stay I felt like I was part of the family and I will be returning, to carry on with all that I learned. The food was lovely and fresh, not being a vegetarian before I have now cut back on meat and feel a lot better for it. Thank you for the wonderful experience of India and yoga."

    "My experience at Siddha Yoga Peeth has been my favorite time in the three week stay in India. They took me in and made me feel like family. The staff and service is excellent and on it! "

    "And, this time is seriously hard for everyone in India with the economy crash and money. The staff really helped me through this and made my time there the most memorable in my life. "

    "I'll be back to Rishikesh and staying at Siddha Yoga Peeth!"

I was super well treated from the day I arrived. Everyone in the school is super kind and understanding. The teachers are amazingly professional and engaged. I learned a lot during my stay!"

    "es wurde auf eurer Website BookYogaRetreats.com als "Veganer Yoga-Urlaub" angekündigt. Leider war das nicht richtig, es war nur vegetarisch. Aber die Leute vor Ort haben sich große Mühe gegeben, mir vegane Speisen zuzubereiten. Zudem wurde es als "Detox"-Yogaretreat angeboten und ich kann nicht achvollziehen, was daran Detox gewesen sein soll... Das Hotelzimmer waren nicht besonders, es waren keine bezogene Matratze und Decke vorhanden, es war nachts auch sehr kalt, da es keine Heizung gab. Im Yogaraum gab es keine Meditationskissen und zu wenig Decken. Da es sehr kalt war, wären diese notwendig. Das angepriesene Steaming gab es auch nicht, nur Massage. Die Leute waren sehr nett und haben sich sehr gut gekümmert. Die Ausflüge waren schön und sie haben sich immer große Mühe gegeben, den Aufenthalt schön zu gestalten und viel von der Umgebung zu sehen. Die Meditationen waren sehr gut. Den Yoga-Unterricht hat zwar ein guter Lehrer angeleitet, aber der Unterricht war nicht geeignet für Anfänger und Teilnehmer, die nur wenige Tage dort sind."

    "We feel fortunate to have met the most beautiful souls on one of the most beautiful places on earth, the staff at Siddha Yoga Peeth are beyond amazing! Shailendra Ji has very deep knowledge and understanding of meditation and nutrition. Their Yoga teachers and other staff were friendly, patient and masters of their fields. Every single person we met during our stay reflects the true spirit of Rishikesh, which is to spread selfless love, solicitude and friendship. We are thankful to the amazing team at Siddha Yoga Peeth for taking us through this fascinating odyssey :) My wife and I had the best week of our lives at Rishikesh and would highly recommend it for everyone!"

    "I did the short 4-day yoga and meditation retreat at Siddha Yoga Peeth in February 2017. I wish I stayed longer. It was my first time to India and also my first proper retreat and I am glad I chose SYP. Everyone made me feel welcome and also comfortable. With the morning yoga, evening meditation and massages, this retreat couldn't get any better for spirituality and wellbeing. I will return. Thanks Shai, Meenakshi (the Doctor), Mohit and team. I will see you soon."

    "I was inexperienced to yoga and meditation but I have learned a great deal about both with the guidance and support from the whole team there! Not only that, but I was educated about the Indian culture & traditions and experienced some 'once in a lifetime' moments! The food was incredible, the team were extremely welcoming and it was a great place to relax, meet people and learn about yourself!"

    "Just completed a three-day course here on our way through India and had an amazing time. Neither my partner or I are very experienced in yoga, but even in our three days, we have learned huge amounts and been given plenty to get on with at home. The meditations were fantastic and led us to explore new areas of ourselves. The staff are absolutely wonderful, very warm and welcoming. Me and my partner felt massively at home here and are very grateful we chose this yoga school."

    "I highly recommend Siddha Yoga Peeth. I've recently completed 21 days there as a yoga beginner on the yoga and detox retreat. I now have a much better understanding of meditation, nutrition and yoga thanks to the teachers there. I left feeling mentally refreshed and physically much stronger and fitter having lost several kilograms of excess weight!"

    "I loved several aspects of the place. Firstly the yoga teacher Vimal was a superstar. He really took me from (very very very) beginner stage and taught me how I could improve through daily practice. He tailored the classes so that the more able students could push themselves whilst not losing sight of the beginners like me. I've continued with self practice since I left and one day I hope I will be back to learn more! Thank you for everything you taught while I was there."

    "The food was amazingly fresh and well prepared. Before going, I was worried that I would not be able to deal with 21 days of vegetarian food. I've not spent such a period of time without eating meat. Honestly I should not have worried at all as the food was delicious and always so fresh I didn't miss non-veg food. Thank you to everyone in the kitchen and cafe for providing nourishing food on a daily basis!"

    "I really enjoyed the breathing flow and meditation classes too. Again, they were well paced so that I could understand the basics quickly and then start to include these ideas in my daily life. Thank you to Shailendra and Kamakshi for these classes and also with the great day trips to the Evening River Prayers, the Vashishtha caves and the yoga class by the Ganges. These trips were a real highlight so thank you for taking time to organize these, so we could see more of Rishikesh during our stay."

    "If I had to summarize I would say that everyone at Siddha Yoga Peeth is geared up to give you the opportunity to learn and to explore how yoga, meditation and nutrition can improve your life and the body you live in. That is really their passion and their motivation. I hope one day to be back for more!"

    "I did a four-day yoga retreat at Siddha Yoga Peeth in January 2017. Even though it was short but it gave me a great introduction on how the retreat is like and at the end of it I wished I could stay longer. I definitely will come back for a longer retreat in near future. Watched the Ganga Aarti performance on the first night, massage and outdoor yoga by the Ganges river around Rishikesh. Daily yoga in the morning has allowed me to stretch myself further and I learned the different styles of yoga. Meditation and breathing sessions were conducted whilst I was there. The staff has really shown me all the things during my stay here. Last but not least the yummylicous vegetarian food during the retreat has been amazing and I couldn't really fault that at all. Overall great experience!"

The 7 day retreat was a perfect balance of great yoga from varied instructors, delicious varied food in a very relaxing and friendly setting and wonderful company from both other guests and the staff and was everything I could have hoped for from my first experience in India. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a deeply relaxing retreat."

    "I have enjoyed a seven-day yoga retreat at Siddha Yoga Peeth in end November. I loved Rishikesh and this place very much. The daily routine was just right with sufficient time for private practice (on the roof with a view) and for exploring the surrounding. The excursions to the mountains and the Ganges are not to be missed. I learned a lot from the yoga and meditation teachers who were attentive at all times. Can't wait to be back for more - a longer yoga retreat, or even a teacher training! :)"

    "I think Siddha Yoga Peeth it is the only name you can go without hesitation. The teachers were excellent in such a way that through teaching methodology and their experiences and guidance you already get a very clear understanding of what really yoga is and gain self confidence before you finish the course. I highly recommend Siddha Yoga Peeth to anybody who is in search to deepen his/her yoga practices. Accommodation is very good too, very clean friendly owner and staff. Everything was organized very neatly according to the students needs. Thanks to the founder of the school Shailendra for establishing such a good quality school in Rishikesh."
