Some of them are monks , pandits in temples or swamis. We request you to please be polite and respect their work. If you find something that not suitable for you or for your faith or mentality, please do not put the blame on them. Let us know on the front desk, on-line or just discuss with Founder Dr Pandey Ji directly if you want any changes and what you find not suitable for you. In 99 % misunderstanding will be solved by the good way.

    Review by Julia Leutgeb from Austria

    CONS Cons: They sell different things for the same. It doesn't matter if you book a yoga teacher training, a Meditation teacher Training of a detox retreat - it's the same program for everyone. Don't have the feeling I learned a lot about meditation

    PROS Pros: Pandeyji was a great teacher

    Organizer response: Dear Julia, Thanks much for your opinion and spending your time in Vedansha! It's a pleasure for us to hear that you evaluate Pandey Ji as a great master! This teacher teached meditation in you class. We are sorry to see that you was unsatisfied with the course program and you did not get effect from the practice. To tell the truth you choose one of the difficultest courses - meditation TTC. In order to reach deeper state in meditative practice and get success in it some people need 2-3 days some more then 14 days. It depends on power of concentration. Please keep continue yoga nidra, concentration, trataka, mantra chanting, pranayama and you will get the desired effect. Mostly it takes 2-3 month to see the result. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us. We supposed your opinion about mixed feeling in classes was created because you did not complete the course. As you saw in schedule there are some classes that could be same as in yoga TTC asana, paranayama, meditation but they have a purpose of developing of your concentration and for that also special different practice was given.

    Review by Stephanie Sawyer from United States

    Thoughtful teaching and welcoming staff!

    CONS Cons: All levels welcomed means they have a lot of people to please. Some classmates wanted higher level yoga, some wanted lower. Also, people visiting should come only if they want an authentic and genuine experience, with an open mind and heart. This is a less traditional environment than the other schools in the area. Perfect for me in that sense, but if you are looking for strict rules and schedules, you will be dissatisfied. Vedansha is accepting to all and very flexible. If you visit here, you will be best suited if you are like-minded to that.

    PROS Pros: I truly loved my time with Vedansha. This is a great school to go and learn from teachers who are warm, caring, and accepting. All students were welcomed, from all backgrounds and levels. Teaching is wonderful and I will never forget my connection with them all. Accommodations are basic, so please select this center as an option if you are looking for thoughtful teaching over luxury or western comforts.

    Organizer response: Dear Stephanie, Thanks for your opinion and nice words. We are happy to hear that you were satisfied with your classes and time in Vedansha. We are working for that. Yoga in India is different in generall from yoga (or asana practice) in west countries. Yoga classes in India, especially in Rishikesh (world capital of yoga ) offer as a vedic science, same as it perform in the high ancient yoga Universities of India (Varanasi, Haridwar, Luknow). In west there is no Yoga Education as a vedic science in the Special University, thats way not much teachers follow the Tradition of yoga as a vedic science and have sometimes less undertanding of real practice. Yoga as a vedic science has 8 Limbs and all these limbs are given in Vedansha for someone who want to taste real yogic life. Authentic and real 8 limbs yoga has no connection with luxury conditions thats way in most schools of Rishikesh it's offered in basic and true conditions that the future teacher knows the reason why yogis sacrifising themselves for this path, why they live in very simple conditions where no need anything, that keeps ego in the low mode and open heart for the knowledge. We are certified by the Yoga alliance and strictly follow all the plan of teaching standard. We never skip classes or offer unnescessary activity. Because of heavy traffic problems in whole Rishikesh sometimes class can be delay but the whole time of the class is always correct and never less then must be.

    Yoga retreat

    CONS Cons: The pictures with the add looked much better than the actual retreat. The rooms are very humid and were not very clean if i am honoust. Especially the bathroom/toilet. The yogahall is a bit dark and hot. The yogamats were a bit dirty. I didnt mind too much though. But for these rates you should get more luxery.

    PROS Pros: I loved the instructors. They were extremely nice and professional. I really improved my yoga skills. The food was well prepared. Everything was freshly made. Dr pandey was an inspiration. I was all ears when he was talking, he is such a wise man.

    Review by Michelle Campbell from Canada

    This is why I came to India for my Teacher Training

    PROS Pros: I came to India for my teacher training because I wanted to find the mind body spiritual connection that seems to be missing from the dominantly physical western approach to Yoga. I found my answers at Vedansha Institute of Vedic Science and Alternative Medicine. This balanced program focused on ALL the areas needed to reconnect with oneself. The classes were small allowing opportunity for personalized growth . I learned so much from Guru Pandey-Ji. He was my philosophy, pranayama, concentration and meditation instructor. Philosophy class was the best part of my day! His classes were thorough and very meaningful. His passion for yoga and personal stories helped me to understand much more than I could have hoped. Pranayama class was amazing! Such a small part of our practice in Canada. I've learned here what an integral part it is for connection to oneself and will continue this unique program that I learned from him. Yogi Raj was my asana instructor and friend. I am grateful for the opportunity to practice asana with him twice a day. He adjusted the program to meet the needs of each of his students. He challenged us to attempt postures we had never tried before and made us hold posses longer than we wanted. I grew a lot in my physical practice because of his instruction. I loved how he ended each class and will continue that in my own practice at home. The rest of the staff were wonderful. They are a family and the guests are made to feel part of that.

    Organizer response: Dear Michelle, Thanks a lot for amazing words and for this time that you were with us in Vedansha. It was so fast! We are very happy to have so talanted and polite students as you. We hope that knowledge that you got during the course you can use in your work. We will be happy to see in Vedansha again!

    Review by Ada Komani from Norway

    The perfect place those that want to learn yoga

    CONS Cons: I loved everything! All in all I am so thankful for having had the opportunity to get my teacher trianing at Vedansha! I found here a second family! And i cannot wait to come an visit you again.

    PROS Pros: Everything is amazing! The location, the accommodation, the people working there, the service, the food, and expecially the instructors! have never in my life met so wonderful people like the people i meet in Vedansha. Upon arrival I was under the belief that asana was nothing for me, but Rahul made me se the benefits of the physical part of yoga and made me fall in love with asana! I started with the statement of not wanting to do any yoga, and did not leave Rishikesh before buying a yoga mat. And i am happy to say that i have not stopped my poractice since then Last but not least my dear Guru Ji....well i would not know where to start describing this amazing Guru and Yogi. He is probably the most charismatic person i have met in my life... even saying charismatic does not cover half of what this human being is like and is capable of. When i started i thought i could meditate... i discovered that i was barely concentrating... And thanks to my Guru Ji I had the most amazing experiences... and above all i experienced meditation in the real sense of the word and an energy that i did not know was possible. Some might say that it is the holy place i was in... and for sure that has something to do with it. But i am quite sure that the main reason is the energy and the teachings of this amazing and holy man.

    "Vedansha is a place of peace surrounded by nature, a simple but extraordinarily welcoming structure managed by wonderful people. "

    "It is not just a hotel, it is an opportunity to live Yoga with people who really know it, practice it, and teach it with true love (the center offers besides personalized study opportunities, high quality certified Yoga and Ayurvedic medicine)."

    "I've been searching the ways of meditation for many years, and the quality and the balance of what I have found here are rare and precious. I was helped in every way possible (in India a support for the logistic misadventures is really important), and thank you from the deepest of the heart all: "

    "Let me say grateful words to Mr Pandey-Ji and his professional Team. I did retreat in yoga 2 weeks. It was super experience. I find excursion in kujapuri temple unforgettable. Never have I done meditation in the Himalayan mountains before. Pandey-Ji guided us very gently. The course itself was interesting, exiting and I could recommend it to all. Pranayama, Philosophy and Ayurveda were my favorite subjects."

    "Being a part of the group of yoga teacher training 100 hours in June, at Vedansha I would like to write some words about it. I was positively surprised of quality /money value. I got so much good things during 2 weeks. Classes were great, especially pranayama from Mr Pandey-Ji, food was excellent especially ayurvedic cuisine, clean accommodation and herbal beverages were very good. I want to finish my 100 hours more in November there!"

    "I want to say thanks so much for classes Dr Pandey-Ji, I did not expected that you can understand my problems so quickly and correct them also. Your chakra balancing course is really wounderfull. The Idea with check up of horoscope to understand my chakra problems I found firstly sceptic but as I saw the result after excersises I really appreciate your work. I hope I could come back to Vedansha next year and maybe with my wife. Thank you."

    "Yoga therapy is the adaptation of yoga practices for people with health challenges. Yoga therapists prescribe specific regimens of postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques to suit individual needs. Medical research shows that yoga therapy is among the most effective complementary therapies for several common ailments. The challenges may be an illness, a temporary condition like pregnancy or childbirth, or a chronic condition associated with old age or illness."
