    The best teachers!
    The teachers for my 200+300 hour course are some of the best in Rishikesh, and consequently in the Yoga world ☺️. Every day, hour, class was an eye-opener. When teachers love the subjects they teach, students are the absolute gainers. I was very fortunate in having chosen this school.

    An experience of a lifetime
    Incredible experience and would highly recommend Rishikesh Yoga Vinyassa School. I feel incredibly grateful to have been given this opportunity, I've recently completed my 300 hour yoga teacher training , the teachers are clearly very knowledgeable in their subjects and felt that I have learnt alot through their teachings. The accomodation and food were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble, the chefs are Incredible and cook an array of beautiful vegetarian food. On the days off trips are organised so that you are able to see the beauty Rishikesh has to offer , a mountain sunrise trip to the temple which is breathtaking and yoga on the beach where you can explore the beauty of the ganges and its surroundings. A beautiful energy and an experience of a life time , thank you so much for everything.

    200 hr YTT: Rishikesh Vinyasa Yoga School
    Just completed my 200 hour teacher training with RVYS and can honestly say this was one of the best experiences I’ve had! It had everything - quality teachers, amazing views up in the jungle, and such a friendly group of people to share the experience with. Lots of fun extras too - Bollywood dancing, animal flow, beach yoga! etc. Highly highly recommend this school! Thank you to everyone at RVYS for making this month so special ❤️

    200hr Yoga Teacher Certification at Rishikesh Vinyasa Yoga School
    What a beautifully enriching experience. I completed my 200hr yoga teacher training at the Rishikesh Vinyasa School back in November. The school was located in peaceful Topovan, surrounded by scenic mountains. The course was both challenging and rewarding. We trained 6 days a week/8 hrs a day over 3 weeks. Our schedule consisted of Ashtanga & Vinyasa Flow Asana classes, Philosophy, Anatomy, Pranayama (breath work), and Body Alignment. This course accepted people at all levels of yoga and empowered each individual to deepen their practice at their own pace. I couldn't be more grateful to our Yoga Gurus & instructors - Yashpal Rautela, Rajesh Rawat, Swami Ji, Ashish Gunsola, and Ritu Shangari - for sharing their wisdom and knowledge with us. The staff and management were all extremely professional, friendly, helpful, and highly communicative. Special shoutout to the chef for his incredible cooking! Overall, wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this yoga school. I humbly bow my head with deep gratitude for all of the new relationships formed, memories created, and the beautiful yoga practice. 🙏 Thank you Rishikesh Vinyasa Yoga School!

I did my 300 hours yoga teacher training program from Rishikesh vinyasa Yoga School and it was one of my best decision to learn vinyasa and ashtanga. Teachers are very professional humble and friendly and the food was healthy and delicious. We were based on yashpal sir hotel galaxy apartment and rooms were cosy with hot water. My only thing was if there was table inside the room it would have been perfect. During Sundays we went for beach yoga and a visit to a hilltop Temple with the group and we took lots of yoga photos. If you are planning to learn yoga with the very professional who are are passionate about what they teach, I highly recommend you to learn from here.

During weekends used to visit around Rishikesh. I would also recommend you to visit Tulsi restaurant nearby restaurant where you can have plan based food which is very delicious and tasty.

Looking for a yoga school to complete your 200Hr yoga teacher training can be a brain racking task, but if you're looking for a fully immersive experience in the yoga capital of the world, with knowledgeable teachers to guide you through the learning journey and a comfortable yet exciting adventure, i would highly recommend Rishikesh Vinyasa Yoga School.

From the first correspondence with the school, everyone has been friendly and helpful (even helping with the arrangement of taxi pickups to and from the airport). the rooms are spacious and conveniently located in or close to the school with the option to get them cleaned every week, and 3 vegan/ vegetarian meals are freshly prepared daily in accordance to the seasons (delish!). The school is in a secure area with cafes and convenience stores sprinkled within a 1-5 minute walk, or take a short stroll down to the lakshman jhula area for some markets and a great view of the ganges. (excursions and events are also arranged throughout the course, so there'll definitely be lots to do)

I was in awe of how little i knew about yoga before starting my training. The lessons cover everything from cleansing, breathing and meditation practices; going through yogic philosophy and learning how you can apply all of it to life back home. It's an Ashtanga and Vinyasa course, so the teachings and practices surrounded those 2 schools of yoga. Rest easy though, because you'll be in the hands of experienced teachers who have a wealth of knowledge about the body, adjustments and alignments. Our anatomy and body alignment classes were both engaging and enriching and i couldn't have asked for better mentors to bring us through our practice.

To top it all off, you meet many like minded, passionate and radiant souls whom you get to share the journey with and a great part of what made the teacher training so memorable was in this exchange of energy (with lots of singing and dancing included!)

It was a truly uplifting month, and i really recommend experiencing it for yourself if it's within your means :-)

This year I had a unique opportunity to experience the adventure of my life. Journey to myself thanks to Guru Vishnu Ji and the teachers from the Vinyasa Yoga Academy. Just before the classes started, our Guru called me to greet me personally at the course and tell me a bit about its structure, it was a wonderful and pleasant surprise for me because I hadn't had such good experiences with another yoga school before.
The Guru assured me that I would have an adventure and a wonderful journey of my life and he was right with everything. Not only I got more information after three days of studying at Vinyasa Yoga Academy than I got from other schools but I actually experienced wonderful moments of purification, emotion and awakening.
Each of the teachers is perfectly prepared. I have the impression that there are no questions for them that they wouldn't know the answer to. They always explained everything accurately, used pictures, comparisons, used teaching aids, and answered all questions. The teacher of Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga is a master in his profession, he can explain each asana most accurately and show how you can safely enter and exit the position. I am very impressed with his knowledge.
The ceremonies with Guru Ji himself were the most wonderful, touching, beautiful experience and I think each of us felt the love of our beloved Guru Ji.
The Vinyasa Yoga Academy team is perfectly organized, we got all the materials, links, books, answers to questions, technical support and friendship we needed. They are wonderful people. And I hope to meet them in person one day.

Just returned to the uk after completing an intense month at rishikesh vinyasa school, teacher training 200hrs. I’m 44 and had attended only 4 yoga classes in my life, it was a steep learning curve, as most of the group had been doing yoga for quite a few years. However, I was supported and encouraged by the whole group. I really enjoyed the philosophy lessons, the teacher was inspiring and made it easy to learn the very basics of how yoga is a way of life, to help you find your truth. Still a lot to learn, but fantastic start. Meditation was also a highlight, especially dance meditation which I can’t wait to do again, it gives you such a natural high, couldn’t sleep or eat after as it creates a lot of energy in your body. Learning the mantras was also a highlight, beautiful!! - Vinyasa & Ashtanga teachers, were very professional with a good sense of humour and non judgemental. thank you for helping me!
Anatomy class was very practical Ani ( our teacher) was very knowledgable and made everything easy to learn and fun.
Alignment, - we learnt how to modify poses and use props to train our bodies into the correct positions.

The school went above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome, the food was cooked fresh everyday, and was always served with a smile . Thank you 😊. It has been an emotional journey from start to finish, if you are reading this review thinking about learning more about yoga and yourself, I would highly recommend this school, it’s a bit of a hike up a steep hill, but it’s nice and quiet looking out to the mountains and listening to water flowing, Rishikesh has an amazing Energy, loved it, will definitely return 😘😘😘

It was one of my best experiences. Vinyasa yoga ashram is placed in a beautiful village inside nature. Ganga river, mountains, waterfall and city are near to the school. Teachers are very good and share their knowledge with us. I feel more confident to teach in my classes and I also feel foul of energy. I definitely recommend you to visit this place if you want to emphasize your practice and if you want to become a good yoga teacher and student also.. The sattvic food at school is very tasty with all these different species that they use in India. Accommodation is ok.

I spent a fantastic time here. I don't know how to put that into words. All of the teachers are very competent and humble. Everything is excellent, including the food, the cleaning, and the rooms. These teachers are not only educators; they are also friends with whom you can share anything. They will assist you with anything at any time, in addition to the course. If you truly want to alter your life for the better, I would recommend this yoga ashram.

I went to vinyasa yoga school on 4 th October 2022 for 100 hrs Yoga teacher Training. Going for yoga teacher training and that is also in vinyasa yoga school is best decision . Teachers there have ocean of knowledge about yoga philosophy and ayurvedic way of living . Specially When J K Sir teaches you philosophy or Anuprita mam teaches you human anatomy along with practical applications of it in yoga and pranayama , you feel like time is flying very fast ,you just don’t want the class to get over .The way they explain vinyasa flow and ashtanga is very simple and practical . When I went their my body was too stiff that I wasn’t able to perform most of asana ,with teacher help as training progressed I was able to perform most … at this school they treat you and accept you as their family.. I specially I miss their vegan food . I would say they just not teach you yoga but they teach you happy healthy way of living . It feels amazing when everyone around you smiles always :) .I would recommend everyone to take out some time from their busy schedule and learn yoga ..it will open new horizons in your life …

It's difficult to put in words how incredible my experience has been at Rishikesh Vinyasa Yoga School. It's not just a place that helps you become a yoga teacher, it's truly a family. Everyone is equal, everyone is loved and shows love, there is SO much to learn from not only the amazing teachers but from the people who live there, from other students, from the culture, from the lush nature surrounding the school. It's a place that is so alive and buzzing with the most ecstatic energy but still so very calm and far from all the city noise while at the same time being just 5mins away from it. The food is great and clean and prepared with so much care and there's plenty of other food options just around the corner. I wholeheartedly recommend this school to any and everyone.

In each of the seven daily classes, with every conversation, every bite of food, every activity (beach yoga, temple and aarti visit), I felt I had made the best choice with Rishikesh Yoga Vinyasa School. The very experienced, competent and at the same time young teachers imparted their knowledge to us with a lot of commitment and authenticity. In doing so, they showed us that yoga is so much more than 'just' practicing asana.
Although the school is only a few minutes' walk from the pulsating main road, it is quiet in the countryside. Idyllic cafes are close by when, despite the very fine food at the school, you are in the mood for something sweet or simply want to drink tea, juice or smoothies. My room was spacious and functional and close to the shaka, so resting was not neglected. It was an intense, fulfilling and satisfying time that I sincerely wish everyone could experience.

What an amazing experience!

If you are looking to deepen your understanding of Yoga and not only the asana part, then doing the 200 hour course here is highly recommended.

The teachers have so much knowledge which is parted with you freely, there is vast ocean of information that you can gather.

There's great importance on the other aspects of Yoga, which is amazing, as most of the time the focus is purely on asanas.

The course is intense, early starts and a day full of classes, though there are enough break periods too which allow you to self reflect and rest.

The school takes care of the food and ensures that there is nutrious and plenty food available to ensure that you get the most out of your asana practice.

Rooms are simple, but then again, Yoga is about simplicity, though they are clean and meet the basic needs. WiFi is available pretty much throughout the school, which allows you to keep in touch with the outside world.

I truly believe that the school has some of the best teachers around in Rishikesh.

I found the theory classes really added to my physical asana practices, as anatomy and alignment really went into the details of the postures, especially in order to avoid injury and the instructions you are normally given in asana practice make a lot of sense now.

The course all in all will definitely help anyone that has been practicing and wants to improve their practice and even those that want to start teaching.

Highly recommended!

Thank you guys for an amazing experience.
