    "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! "

    "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."
