    "I participated in the yoga and meditation retreat in Delhi and I was very happy with the experience. It was a good value as I had a personalized yoga experience and delicious breakfast and lunch every day for a reasonable price. Sadhna and Kapil were welcoming and offered much information about Indian culture, in addition to yoga practice and philosophy. I recommend Yoga Sadhna India especially to those visiting India for the first time."

    "I have done Yoga teacher training Course from Yoga Sadhna India. They teach very well here. Actually if you want to learn yoga, you should come here. They not only teach you one style, but they teach you many yoga styles. Especially for girls, I believe it is really good. I had searched many places and tried, but when I came here I felt very positive. The teachers are very nice. If you don’t know any particular pose, they don’t yell at you, but they tell you many other ways to do it. Philosophy was difficult but I liked yoga especially."

    "My experience at Yog Sadhna India in Rishikesh was everything I had hoped for in a retreat. I was looking for a program that offered both yoga and meditation together. YSI offers a combination of yoga poses, meditation, pranayama breathing, chanting, and learning about yogic philosophy and history. I found this range of activities very educational and fulfilling. Also, I was looking for somewhere that was not a bare bones ashram but also not a cushy spa. YSI's retreat falls nicely in-between. My highest praise goes to the personal attention given by Sadhna and Kapil. They have made the curriculum flexible so that they can tailor it to the students in attendance. They were also very helpful with excursions and sightseeing in and around Rishikesh, as well as with any logistical arrangements I needed. We were well-fed with vegetarian meals, and the six day retreat passed all too quickly. In short, I would highly recommend Yog Sadhna India to anyone looking for a balanced retreat experience, knowledgeable instructors, and a personal touch. Namaste."
