According to Hindú mythology, lord Rama did penance to kill the demon king Ravana and where "Lakshman Jhula" stands today, the place was one time crossed by lord Rama’s younger brother Lakshmana, using a jute rope bridge.

      Review by Anna Hogstrom from Portugal

      Rubbish management

      CONS Cons: Management was terrible. False, rude and oozing of negative energy! So so so disappointing... Considering they're supposed to teach yoga - the opposite of all of that! I felt like I was imprisoned... Such a bad experience. I highly recommend you to go elsewhere. Makes me feel sick just thinking about the way the manager treat his guests. The fact that he's supposed to be the meditation teacher is just the biggest joke ever.

      PROS Pros: Philosophy teacher Shastry was great. Cleaning ladies and kitchen staff were friendly and helpful. A shame kitchen weren't given nutritional food to cook with. Seriously lacking nutrition, and forget about any "detox juices" and many other things promised in the course description. The surrounding area is nice, however the ashram it self could possibly be one of the most negative places on this planet.

      "My time at the Yoga Bhawna Mission has been nothing but amazing. In the past few weeks, I’ve grown as a person both mentally and spiritually. For starters, the location of this facility is breath taking. Practicing yoga near the banks of Ganga or trekking with the group have been some of the most fun and fulfilling experiences of my life. The entire staff is so accommodating and knowledgeable. Everybody here has been incredibly humble and shown me so much love. Overall India has been such an inspiration for me and I can’t wait to come back."

      "It was a memorable holiday of experiencing Yoga in the lap of the Himalaya. You can have picturesque view of river Ganga flowing down, from your window. A relaxed environment with great hospitality. I had great experience of trekking to Harshil and Dariyal Bogiyal staying at this place. Thanks Vijayant, hope to see you next year!"

    • Review by Usha Ranawat from India

      "Being an organizer of helicopter services in Uttarakhand, we had much stress in life on daily basis and my search for Yoga school thankfully come out with best of decision of my life and this 30 days have almost transformed me as person. My 200 hour TTC course was like a full package, specially the Ashanas and meditation classes, although I can’t claim to be perfect student, but somehow have learned the basics of Yoga and I look forward to implement in my daily lifestyle. Before joining this course, I had a roller-costar inside and now I can say that it was my perfect choice. The teachers, kitchen staff, the cleaning boy, I mean everyone was so fantastic and so humble. I will really miss my room from where I can see the flowing Ganga, although I have never been to any yoga school earlier, but I can’t imagine any better location other than this. The Nature walk, the Himalaya, The Ganges, the long Deodar tree, the pine fruit which we use as fuel for our camp fire…Oh My God! this was truly an unforgettable journey…I wish I could have stayed more…maybe soon in coming years!"

    • Review by Yashika Ganesh from Kodagu, India

      "I was at Yoga Bhawna Mission, Uttarkashi for a month for my RYT 200 course and I must say it was one of the best decisions of my life. Firstly the location is enchanting and it's gonna immediately heal most parts of you. The course was well designed with emphasis on yoga as a holistic practice and not merely a fitness tool. The execution was also great with enthusiastic teachers always ready for knowledge sharing. Good facility with spacious rooms and the yoga hall is also equipped with heaters to beat the winter cold. I still miss the simple, yet tasty vegetarian food and a family atmosphere. In conclusion if you are looking to learn yoga in it's real form and not just as a fitness tool, this place is highly recommended."

      "This place has been a journey to me, everything I have learned during the term of my course has touched my life in many ways than just yoga. I have immense respect and right information about many aspects of yoga and Ayurveda during my course. Vijayant is an absolute pleasure to meet and work with. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone who has a desire to learn; the knowledge given here is in abundance . Thank you Yoga Bhawana Mission!"

      "This course was very intense, and was very good at times, and very bad at other times. But after taking some time to decompress, I can honestly say I learned a lot there, and enjoyed the time I spent during the training and feel as though I have made invaluable friendships. Despite the difficult times, I would highly recommend this course to others and am even considering returning in a few years for the advanced teacher training."

      "Awesome ! I was excited as I never ever went to a hostel in my life and man here is my chance to live life like a boarding school .Enjoyable if you are able to surrender into the schedule and if you are free bird then maybe it will be trouble time in the beginning. The best thing with them is that they have best of faculty and being associated in past with few other yoga school I can bet they teaches yoga in most original way. I would surely recommend all the promising yogi to come over here and learn yoga the way it has been written in the books. I would like to suggest that they should improve the food quality, of course it’s a three time meal but it should be more nutritious and healthy, I would rate food quality as average and its always better to carry your own nuts as some time I felt I was starving or may be due to excessive amount of practice and shanas..Blessings!"

      "This was one the memorable journey of my life, I would say they have best of faculty and they teach yoga in its most indigenous way. The best thing which I liked about them is that they teach Yoga in its most realistic and raw way although some time it sounds unfashionable but that is what real yoga about I guess. I wish I could have spent some more time .I will look forward."
