    "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." website, edited

  • Review by Juliana from US

    "My four weeks teacher training at Rishikesh with Yog Sadhna India passed by so quickly. With the team of teachers who taught us vigorously, everything was kept at a great pace. The program was intense. The knowledge was given in an organized fashion. What I liked specifically is that they not only taught us about yoga; they taught us how to be good yoga teachers. I learned details and interesting facts of yogic life. My learning curve went through a steep curve. The food was delicious, and the rooms were comfortable. I highly recommend this school to everybody, but be ready to work hard."
