This retreat was an unbelievable experience. The yoga instruction was excellent, pushed us to our limits, and really improved our practice. The food is so delicious, I miss it already! And the daily excursions to Rishikesh town, temples, and waterfalls were a huge part of the trip, and added so much. We are incredibly grateful for the time we spent at the retreat. Yogi Ram took such good care of us, and we would love to return someday for a longer retreat.

"Retreat Seeker "
The instructors were fabulous and Joshan was very kind to take me around and provide me with some chats about philosophy of yoga.

We had a magical week in a magical place with wonderful people and delicious food. The accommodation was clean and basic but when you opened your door in the morning you have a stunning view of the mountains and when you have time to spare you can walk down the bank to the river Ganges and it is simply gorgeous. We went on some fantastic outings to waterfalls and temples and to make it even better we went on motorbikes which were a real treat. The yoga teachers are amazing and so knowledgeable. I loved the early morning classes and the mantras sung by the teacher and students and the horn like sound through a shell at the start of each lesson. I came home truly inspired and rejuvenated.

"Never felt better! Zenned out!"
The staff went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The instructor was considerate to everyone's needs and demonstrated poses at a manageable pace. Just listening to Himanshu's voice helped me to meditate.
They were flexible and thorough.
The accommodation was comfortable and peaceful. I have never eaten vegetarian food for a whole week but I never felt hungry. The food was nutritious and filling. We all enjoyed the tea offerings.
The daily excursions were a bit rushed due to traffic jams and the retreat was further away from the airport than what we thought. The roads are a bit hairy.
But the location of the retreat near the Ganga stream was refreshing and relaxing.
I would definitely book again for our school group of 10 Year 10/11 students!
Thanks Yash Yoga School.

"Not what I was expecting - difficult review to write! "
All the staff members I was dealing with were very good. They were very caring. I want to mention Ram as he was not on the list above. He took me the most of excursions. We had nice conversations during those motorbike drives. When I did fall ill Deep took me to the hospital ND stayed whole time with me.

"Very good vallue for a good price"
The tachers are carrying so much knowledge, wisdom and great energy, I miss them already:) Besides that the meals were delicious, and location perfect. Just out of the busy streets, upon the hill on the way to the beautiful waterfall. Massage therapist was like a mother taking care of all of her children and Management very helpful and kind. With this I would say it's a very good vallue for the money you pay.

I absolutely loved my time at this yoga retreat. It was my favourite one so far! The teachers were awesome, especially Raj and the meditation teacher (I forget her name!). The teachers took the time to thoroughly explain the content to you which allows you to deepen your practice. I've never been able to meditate for as long as I did on this retreat, and my sun salutations have never been better.
The location was perfect as we were close to the market and close to everything really!
The staff was so welcoming, especially Sunny and Ankit!

"Fantastic value for money with the most amazing staff! "
The staff members were just fantastic 24/7, particularly Antik and Pradeep who are two of the most wonderful and helpful people I have ever meet! You instantly felt comfortable to ask them everything from how to get a bus to questions about Indian culture. They were very knowledgable on yoga and all things to do with Indian cultural, which made the trip even more special! The location was fantastic and a short walk from all the shops, temples, treks and cafes etc. The yoga was also fantastic and teachers helpful. Alongside the brilliant yoga the daily excursions were always very interesting and I felt as though we had a personal tour guide each for the week! Had the most wonderful time and was sad to leave.

"Interesting experience full of surprices"
I love the atmosphere in the school - all of the stuff member were easy-going, friendly and helpful. The food was amazing and the portions were big enough for everyone. You could always order something extra from nearby restaurant (I especially recommend Masala Chai and fresh cutted local fruits). During the course you could try some yogic practice like jala neti or dhauti under the guidence of experienced teacher. We were offered many activities during our free time like cooking class, henna, trip to temple, ganga aarti ceremony, rafting and many more. That month was an interesting experience, you could relaxed and learn about Indian culture and yoga.

The teachers are the reasons i will be back. They are all very passionate, capable and approachable. What ever difficulties you have encountered they do help as much as possible, from small things like wifi connection to big thing like what to do with my internally rotated right knee. I am so grateful for the whole experience . I have learnt so much and grew up a little bit more. The course is extesive and detailed at the same time you get to know the holistic whole of yoga. Weekend activities like rafting and temple hike are awesome !

"The greatest trip in My life"
Regarding yoga and meditation, in one week I could feel and share my soul with others members of the group. Teachers are very wise about yoga Knowledge. Every day I visited a wonderful place along with a guide which was very close and friendly. He explained me a good deal of customs and facts. What is more, he looked after me along all the trip. Ankit Maithani thanks !!

"Unforgettable experience !!"
The team was very careful with all my needs, the food was very tasty and the organized activities were a lot of fun. Despite their young age, the teachers know a lot, they always took time to respond and adapt the class to my physical condition (body very stiff). Everything was great but what I enjoyed the most was the peaceful vibes and the connections I had with people there. I came for physical purpose, I leave with a whole new spiritual world discovered under my feet. Thank you guys !!!

"No Spirit in Rishikesh anymore!"
The Excursions, the teachers were very kindly

Great place to study and practice yoga! Rajesh Rawat is the best yoga teacher I met in India. He's very serious about spiritual aspect of yoga, gives a lot of attention to details in proper asana practice, shares his knowledge with a lot of charm and knows how to motivate people to do their best on the matter. Additionally, his sense of humor will make even the most difficult class a very funny experience. Last but not least, the area of Tapovan is calmer then the center of Rishikesh which makes it easier to focus on studding and has an amazing vibe!

This is the best Yoga School in Rishikesh. I came in August 2017 for two weeks to complete 100 hours. I loved it so much that I came back 3 months later in November to complete the course. My main reason for coming back to this school is the teachers, the chef and the whole family. They are some of the best people I have ever met, extremely knowledgeable, welcoming & kind. You feel right at home, spacious rooms with your own bathroom, the best meals cooked three times a day, the food is SO good, and lovely views all around you. I highly recommend this school, it can be overwhelming choosing a Yoga School but this is definitely the right choice. Thank you to all the teachers for teaching me so much
