"Learning high"

Theteaching quality was so high from the instructor s. Class organisation was excellent with progressive planning. Extra activities were fun and a whole yoga experience was fulfilling. The location is fabulous quite on the hill side but easy to get to the market n restaurants. Very safe environment.

"Amazing Experience at Vinyasa Yoga Ashram"

My time spent at Vinyasa Yoga Ashram is one that I will carry for the rest of my life. The knowledge and experiences I gained through this yoga family is invaluable. The dedicated time and hard work each member put into the school (teachers and staff) made for an amazing experience--I truly feel like part of the family. Everyone was so patient, accommodating and attentive to inquiries from students. Special thanks to Ankit who went above and beyond to assist students. Also to Yogi Pradeep, Yogi Sahushri, Yogini Parveen and Yogi Rajesh who I've learned so much from over the course of my studies.

"Amazing experience "

I had an amazing time. I am really grateful for the human connections, and the people I got to meet there. The vibe in the ashram is in such a way that you can truly feel that you belong to a big family. The teachers are always available to help you find your way on your practice, on your own path, to clarify some details. They are teaching from their heart, which for me made everything so special. I feel we truly dived into yoga, the discipline of the asanas, the deep philosophy theme, practical anatomy, I discovered the power of pranayama and meditation.... if you are opened 100% to receive and to give from your heart, I can not recommand this place enough.

All the teachers are very knowledgeable, passionate and joyful. It was a pleasure to participate to each class. All the classes are well interconnected therefore there is a continuity in the teaching that makes the understanding and memorizing of the different topics easier. The schedule of the day is well done giving the student enough time to study and rest if needed. The school is taking care of the students in an very friendly way and helps in everything and makes you feel really supported. The number of students in a group is perfect, so the teachers are able to assist each one when needed during the yoga practice. I really liked the food and appreciated the nice activities organized for the students on the days off, because it created a deeper connection in the group and some relaxing and funny moments to share. For me was a very good experience, that I can recommend to everyone intrested in a teacher training course.

"Better than expected"

The teachers were amazing! They were really professionell and knew exactly what they were talking about (well, sometimes was a little language barrier but we coped with it) :)

Most of the teachers were always very kind, nice, friendly, respectful, also really funny and made me laugh when i had a rough day and were worried and took care of us. I really appreciate that. Thanks for the great time guys! x

The food was better than expected, it was very very delicious especially breakfast was my favourite meal every day ^^

I would like to stress that JK, OP and Ankit are probably some of the best yoga teachers in Rishikesh xxx

Thank you for the experience and the memories xo

And the group I was with for that time was the best i could get. I made some really good friends and it was lovely how much we took care of each other.

Def more pros than cons !!!! I recommend Vinyasa Yoga Ashram!

"My incredible yoga experience in India"

What not to like? I discovered an area of mountainous countryside the like of which I have never seen before. I met people from all parts of the world whose common interest in yoga brought us all together and I hope some lifelong friendships will result. I undertook a training in yoga second to none at the hands of real masters of the art, realizing how much more there is to the practice and theory of yoga than I had ever thought. It was a truly wonderful experience that I hope will change my life in putting me on a new path, and it is certainly one that I will remember forever. All the classes were excellent but if I have to mention one in particular, it was the anatomy class.

"Peaceful place to meditate"

I really enjoyed my time in Vinyasa yoga ashram by the river. It was quiet, green and Himalayan mountains all around us. The teachers giving us 150% everyday, with smile and support. Kitchen staff superb. My experience with this ashram was better than I could imagine, so much knowledge, laughter and love. Thank you very much VYA for all the hard work.

"Beautiful Himalayan family! "

The location is a perfect compromise, out from the crowd and noise but in the main time very close to shops and cafes... The teachers quality, variety is the top! The rooms are great and comfortable and the meals delicious! And it's plenty of funny moments, dancing, humour!

"Great experience will more structure needed for 300"

The excursions were brilliant! Great fun, loads of laughs. I really loved 200 hour course but found the 300 hour a challenge in every way at the beginning. Some was my own personal stuff but not having a curriculum or a structure of what we needed to know, the teachers not knowing what they were doing. Also only seeing Ajay and Himanji once throught, it felt like they don't care what happens.

"Great place :)"

I stayed at the school for two months (500 hour course) with my husband. The school has a great location on the edge of the city, so you keep the peace from the jungle without to much noise from the cars. The accommodation and food was good and the teachers and staff was really sweet. I really enjoyed our stay!

"Himalayan Yoga Family"

The teachers and staff of the Himalayan Yoga Association were welcoming, warm, and truly felt like family by the end of my 2 months (200 hrs + 300 hrs) with them. I learned a lot from them all, both in class and outside of class. The level of knowledge of the teachers was very good, and the classes were relaxed and open-minded, even when discussing difficult topics. I have learned SO much these past two months (August and September 2018), and am excited to bring this knowledge home to share with others. Special thanks to: Ram for teaching me full power Vinyasa flow, and for always smiling (although sometimes I think you enjoyed our pained groans a little too much!); Pradeep for explaining anatomy in a clear and simple way, and for taking me to the doctors to get an x-ray to help me understand my scoliosis; Vivek for being the life and soul of the party, and sharing his legendary dance moves; Pammy for his smile and for making the best masala chai and parantha in Rishikesh; Praveen for teaching me meditation and yoga philosophy, and opening my eyes to how much more there is to Yoga than just asana; Deepraj and Satish for introducing me to Ashtanga yoga for the first time, and for all your adjustments to push me deeper into the postures (I'll miss your beautiful singing, Satish!); Swamiji for sharing your vast knowledge on Yoga and meditation; Ajay and Himanshu for listening to our concerns so well. Thank you all!

The teachers, the staff, literally everyone. I loved the teachings, all classes, I loved the discipline. The views, the city. All of it. It was a great, life changing experience.

Teachers are lovely, patience and knowledgeable. They are very sincere in their teaching. Also, the capital of Yoga- Rishikesh, India, is a nice and lovely place with kind people, good food and rich cultures.

Amazing teachers! Very young but a lot of experiences! I feel that i've learned a lot during just one month! I like the way they are teaching because they are different, good mood everyday, good vibes, always smiling, loving, taking care of everyone, peace full and very friendly with all of us! I can't explain how much i have learn during that awesome month! I was so bad at anatomy but now i have this feeling that i understand everything so much better than when i arrived the first day! I can't criticize anything because i know that they did the best as they can and for me it was perfect. Amazing people, amazing month, amazing teachings, amazing yoga practises, learnings and even more because it have to be live by the people, i can't describe how much it was rewarding and growing. Thank's everyone for this amazing month! Love yall!

"Uitstekende docenten maar weinig lesgegeven "

De yogadocenten hebben stuk voor stuk heel veel kennis, wat ze op een leuke manier overbrengen. Ik heb hier heel veel geleerd! Op zondag en donderdagmiddag was er vrije tijd om even de stad te verkennen en we hebben een aantal leuke uitstapjes gedaan.
