It would be an error to search for "the best yoga school" as yoga is not about competition but a means to better your own personal physical, mental, energy and overall wellbeing.
To this, Vinyasa Yogashala fits the description to perfection:
- Location (overlooking the Himalayas, far enough from the center, but close enough to walk on your day off, in the backdrop of superclean, gorgeous ganga river),
- Schedule (will set you off to a lifetime of healthy habits)
-Curriculum design- they keep the classes small so you are given attention and the quality of people (both teachers, students and staff) are extraordinary plus the weekly excursions are bucket list worthy experiences
- Food though vegetarian (paleo eater here) are superdelicious, varied and healthy. I have never eaten so much yet got so much energy and got to my ideal weight.
Ashish, a renowed teacher in Rishikesh made this his personal project and he has truly succeeded. This is simply the best investment I made for myself ever. Thank you Ashish, Thanu, Sadhu, Harry, Vikas, Pramud, Ankit, Rahul and Auntie!

"Must Experience Yoga in Rishikesh"
Ashish and the rest of the instructors were superb. If you are going to study yoga, do it here! There's no other experience that can match working with talented masters to understand the practice, in the one city in the world so important to its history.

"An excellent balance between discipline and fun"
Ashish is a fantastic instructor - he demands enough discipline that you grow and improve, but also has a good sense of humor and respects limits. His instructions are clear and encouraging, I'd love to practice with him every day.
I also loved the activities. So many of the retreats were all-yoga-all-the-time, but as as a relative beginner, I was happy to have a bit less intensity and a bit more exposure to other activities in Rishikesh. White water rafting on the Ganges was a highlight!
