"100 Hour Multi Style YTT"

Highly recommended 👍👍

Review by Shashi Cht from France


"200 Hour YTT"

All the staff of the school were very attentive to the students. They always looked after our well being, in many ways. Courses are well structured and progressive. Since I have always practiced yoga on my own, many instructions were new to me and very benefit in this way. By choosing to do a yoga school, I obviously wanted to progress my practice, but it was also very important for me to learn the philosophical and spiritual side of Yoga. In this way, the teaching really reach my expectation. Now I can speak about what is Yoga, I can put words on it, I know precisely what this philosophy is base on. I can see the huge progress I have made in 1 month. I discovered my strengths and my weaknesses. Which I wasn’t very aware before. It is very encouraging in term of progressing my practice. Now i know how to make my practice better, in proper way, because they taught me the tools. I feel million time more confidente. It was definitely beautiful experience in term of self-discovery and self-improvement and humanly speaking, the relationship with the teachers and the classmates. I sincerely had wonderful time here. I thank you from the bottom of my heart to Ajay, Mukesh, Rahul, Shiva (teachers) Vaibhav, Geethansh, Dheeraj (intendance) for all the good things they brought me. Lot of Love and all the best to Nath Yogshala School

"200 Hour YTT"

I have loved the way hotel staff members were taking care of us. They treated us just like gods which is a part of their culture, but nevertheless, it is greatly appreciated. Hospitality and their attention to details, as well as their kind heart, was impressing me each and every day. The hotel manager, Palace, Raunak and the cooks were very helpful with our adaptation. I have become friends with all the teachers and liked each one as a person. They are all unique in their own way and bring a valuable perspective to each subject. Although knowledge was not absorbed through the subjects, it was taken from experiences, conversations, mistakes, observations and everything else. All staff members were fun to be around. The course subjects were originally quite well put together(looking at the schedule), but with some issues. I enjoyed all but learned most in Philosophy, Hatha and Ashtanga along with Alignment. I have also enjoyed the invited teacher for lectures about chakras and energy. I have returned home with more knowledge in my head and more peace in my heart. I will definitely come back to India and contact my dear friends.

"200 Hour YTT"

Wow. As soon as I arrived here, I felt most welcomed. Everyone who works here is beyond friendly and will accommodate you in any way they can. Geetansh is so funny and really caring. You just have to keep pushing at him. Palesh will make sure you are okay constantly. If you are happy, he is happy. He immediately makes you feel like family. Everyone is very hard-working and some are shy; you got to just keep talking to them to get them to smile. All the instructors were knowledgeable and super personable. Swami G was superb and it was an honor learning philosophy from him. He is so wise and quite funny. I learned more than I thought I would about yogA as a whole. Peeyush took great care of us and gave us so much of his time to make sure we understood the ashtanga series and the alignment for each pose. He also worked around our needs and varying yoga levels. Our pranayama teacher also shared great stories with us and our hatha teacher was so friendly and open with us. We had a group of 9 and everyone connected so well and we all supported each other and balanced each other out. I enjoyed coming up with and teaching a hatha class and preparing to lead the ashtanga class. There are no stresses or worries and we always did something fun on our off-day! This was an amazing experience for me and you get out of it what you put into it. I always know I can come back to Rishikesh and be with my family. So beyond grateful to have picked this place

I loved the YTT experience overall.. Teachers are all awesome and really want you to learn and progress, always there for any questions. Many thanks to teachers Rajesh (Hatha Yoga) and Saajan (Paranyama) Special thanks to Peeyush, our great Ashtanga teacher ❤️ Not only a great teacher, but also helped us with books and YouTube recommendations to learn further.. Can not thank U enough :) The school felt like home. The food always tasty and fresh, we were constantly asked "Everyone happy?!" :) Special thanks to Palesh :) 🙏 The massage and excursions provided were also so good.. Overall a life-changing experience, with all I learnt and the nice people I met

"200 Hour YTT"

The experience I had in Rishikesh Nath Yogshala school was so, oh so unique...💭🌄 How could I explain it? It felt like a blink of an eye, yet it left the knowledge of centuries.. It went by so fast, yet it will stay for so long.. It passed, yet it remains inside..✨💫🌻 I came with no expectations, and I am going full of inspiration now, motivation, and a fundament to continue with what I have always wanted to do.🌱🍃🌿 Thanks to whom?💐🌷 Thanks to all the teachers, namely Sadhuji, Peeyushji, Rajeshji, Hariji, Saajanji, Yogshri, Swamiji Muktananda, who beautifully, patiently shared their knowledge. Who had words to speak, and ears to listen.🌊 Thanks to the workers of Rishikesh Nath Yogshala - Krishna, Palesh, Geetansh, Anup, Ashish, Radha - who made me feel most welcomeand who had a great, big heart to feel.🌹 And to all the students, who had one hand to share and the other hand to help.🌎 I recommend Rishikesh Nath Yogshala to everyone who ...carries warmth inside and wants to share it ...feels cold inside and seeks for heat ...loves the sound of silence ...knows that silence is the loudest sound ...feels thirst for information, be it anatomical, physiological, philosophical, spiritual or technical ...enjoys nourishing, colorful food made with love. I thank everyone for the beautiful time we’ve spent together. For making the magic happen, together. And living what I call life.✨💫 ...Be sure that you’ll be mentionned to my grandchildren, one day.😉

"200 Hour YTT"

I would highly recommend. Very simple living but everyone will take such good care of you, it really does feel like a family! The teachers are all fantastic and there is loads to learn regardless of how experienced you are.

Review by Huynh Vi from Vietnam


"100 Hour YTT"

I love the place where we lived, high in the hill, next to the forest, have perfect view over Rishikesh and Ganga River. It is very quiet here. All the teachers really care and support all students. They teach us how to conduct a yoga class, explain and give alignment knowledge for many poses.

Review by Paloma Guzmán from Mexico


"200 Hour YTT"

La escuela es asombrosa. Todos los maestros son muy calificados y se nota el amor que tienen para compartir su conocimiento. Las clases de Ashtanga, Hatha y Pranayama con muy completas y te enseñan teoría y práctica aplicada todo el tiempo. El coordinador (Gitansh.) del grupo fue muy atento en todo momento y se aseguró de que nuestra estancia no tuviera inconvenientes. Las excursiones de fines de semana fueron muy divertidas y culturales. Asistimos a ceremonias y templos y nos explicaron cada cosa para que viviéramos una experiencia auténtica. La comida es vegetariana y muy rica y nutritiva, con ingredientes locales. Definitivamente recomiendo Rishikesh Nath Yogshala si quieres llegar a un lugar y sentirte como en casa. Todos nos convertimos en una familia y los tendré en mi corazón por siempre. Namasté.

Review by Khatera Hakimi from France


"100 Hour YTT"

Firstly, I absolutely loved the warm welcome of each and every staff member of Rishikesh Nath Yogshala who treated us like their own family. Geetanj and Palesh to name a few were always there for all our needs during our stay of 28 days. The next most important factor of the school was the unbelievably knowledgeable and kind teachers in every single subject. My personal favorite classes were Philosophy with Sadhu Sri, who I wasn’t able to blink for even a second, not to miss a thing he teaches! Followed by anatomy with Harry, Ashtanga was a joyful experience with Peeyush and Hatha with Rajesh!! Actually each and every subject and teacher deserves a 10 out of 10! I learned so much and so grateful for this wonderful experience full of knowledge, discipline and self discovery into this vast world of Yoga.

Review by Roos Steigenga from El Salvador


"100 Hour YTT"

My favorite teacher was for sure: Peejush. He was the ashtanga and alignment teacher for the September batch. He is very enthusiastic and passionate about teaching and he pushes and inspires everyone around him. All the other teaches were very friendly and fun as well. The philosophy teacher was hard to follow because of his Indian accent and I did not feel too comfortable to ask questions. But overall, I learned a lot and would recommend this school to everyone. The facilities are basic but the enthusiasm of all the people involved is worth every penny. They are very much involved with the well being of all the students. They will make sure that all the students will feel comfortable. And the classes are not big, which is a big plus!

Review by Nicole Jacobs from United States


"200 Hour YTT"

So many beautiful souls in one place. From the teachers to the organizers and even the wait staff, everyone took care of us with so much love. If ever there was anything that we felt we needed, weather it be to do with what we were learning in classes, food, health related issues, or suggestions for things unrelated to the school, all that was required was a conversation and they were happy to help an anyway they could. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable about the topic being studied (and also about India if you are planning travels afterwards) and very approachable. The rooms were lovely, air conditioned, and Nath Yogshala provided everything you may need (bedding, cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, and soap). The food was always delicious, organic, and healthy. Dietary restrictions were taken care of. The yoga hall was an amazing space, always available to us and with beautiful views of the Himalayan foot hills. Overall I am SO SO pleased with my choice to do my 200h YTT here and I hope that the 300h is available soon! So many stories and memeories shared between us all. I leave a little piece of my heart at Rishikesh Nath Yogshala

Review by Ann Soe from United Arab Emirates


"100 Hour YTT"

I absolutely enjoyed my one month in Rishikesh Nath Yogshala. There wasn’t a single dull day there. The school is great, the staffs, the teachers are amazing, and I’ve made so many new friends from all the around the world. It was really eye opening learning more in-depth about yoga from the traditional point of view, and to be able to do the pranayama cleansing and practice asanas every single day while also learning about anatomy and philosophy, and meditating too. It may sound intense but it was a really nice routine that you would get use to after a few days. Also, I would like to mention that Gitansh (our big brother!) goes out of his way to meet all of our needs while we were there so our stay and experience was really pleasant. The weekend excursions were great too! We were also lucky to have had three birthday celebrations in our short one month (yay!!). I seriously recommend Rishikesh Nath Yogshala to anyone who’s reading this and I assure you, you will not regret your decision. Thank you Gitansh, thank you Rishikesh Nath Yogshala and all the staffs, teachers, and fellow batch mates for the wonderful months. I love my newly found Indian family!

"100 Hour YTT"

Everything it is been just perfect. Teachers are very prepared and their way to share their knowledges is amazing. Wonderful experience that I will never forget because of the atmosphere and because of people who made me feel at home. Thank you NathYogshala.

Review by Cissy Nansera from Uganda


"200 Hour YTT"

I liked how the service was hands on, the Yoga teachers were very careful to make sure non of the students was injured and the philosophy teacher made it as easy as possible for us to understand the philosophy of yoga. Rooms were always clean, meals were on time. I love how they made every weekend count for us by taking us on trips around Rishikesh and recommendations for weekend activities whenever we needed to go on our own..

Review by Nikola Machalova from Czechia


"200 Hour YTT"

I like almost everything. The teachers were very professional and they taught me a lot about yoga, anatomy and philosophy. The staff was very kind and they provided us everything we wanted. The food was for me very tasty and delicious. I was very satisfied..

Review by Bella Seo from South Korea


"200 Hour YTT"

It truly was a life changing experience for me. I can not forget the moment when we all received the instructor certificates. It was very touching and overwhelming. If you are looking for a place to transform your life, Rishikesh Nath Yogshala is the place. From the day one to the last day of training I never regreted I chose this school. They have the best yoga teachers and amazing Philosophy and Meditation teachers. The food is amazing and the room is decent. One thing that I highly compliment is that the staffs are incredibly kind and helpful. I messed up with my flight back to San Fran, thankfully staffs were there to help me and take care of me. Without their help I would have gone back home and start working on time.... I am forever grateful. I will definitely go back to the school for 300hours yoga instructor program. As one of my yoga classmates said, "Come without expectations and enjoy every moments!" :)

Review by Kamila Teichertova from Czechia


"200 Hour YTT"

I loved all!!!! The school, staff, classes, teachers, location, accommodation, FOOD! I mean there is nothing I would like to change. Since arrival they care of you as you are their brother or sister. Our amazing coordinator did sometimes even more than we were expecting. I feel very greatful to every one and specially teachers, their passion and knowladge is so great and wonderful. There was no class I did not like at all. Every single subject or class I had enjoy 100%. Also schoo provides you beautiful and tasty food. During days off I really did not get bored, because we could join unforgettable excursions together (waterfall, rafting, temples and so on). School is located in hill, so you have breathtaking view of whole Rishikesh in morning till evening from the roof and studio! Who is in this school feels as a member of great, kind and friendly yoga family. I am happy I had chosen this school and I wolud do it again. If you read it right now, I just want to let you know you should go for it! Amazing choice, you have got my word. :-) Thank you, love and light! Namaste Nath yogshala <3

Review by David Foster from United Kingdom


"200 Hour YTT"

So much. My first time in India, the people are so friendly and will do anything to help you feel comfortable. I was picked up by the shool from Dehradun a few days before the start on time. Then was given a room to nap in before mine was ready. The course was intense but all the instructors have such a passion for their job they inspire you to push yourself and really learn in depth the meaning of yoga. The food the school provide is great too, porridge usually breakfast the Dahl and curries at lunch and dinner. You have a coordinator who looks after you so well and will sort any problem you have! Rishikesh as a place is amazing, a lot of yoga students in the same place = a great atmosphere. It is a simple life but if you love yoga you will love this course.

Review by Sarah Mog from United States


"200 Hour YTT"

The teachers are incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about all aspects of yoga - though we got plenty of the physical asanas of yoga (and I loved the way they taught and modified for our various levels), we also learned about the history, philosophy, and meditative practices involved to deepen our practice. It is in a great location - close to a lot of cafes, shopping, fresh fruit, and of course, the Ganga River. There are opportunities for outings every weekend to experience the culture and the adventures in Rishikesh. The manager of the program is the absolute best - he took care of us like family! If we needed anything, he was quick to help. Food (and lemon water!!) is delicious. I created a new yogi family with the group and staff, for which I am very grateful!

Review by Sayo K from Australia


"200 Hour YTT"

This experience was something else. Yoga instructors are all very knowledgeable and I could tell that they are passionate about Yoga and sharing their knowledge with others. They all are not only nice, friendly and smiley but also, run the classes with disciplines to maximise the learning experience and minimise the injuries. That was the perfect combination of fun and serious learning. You will learn a lot, like A LOT. Food-wise, amazeballs!! All very fresh and cooked in a hygienic kitchen. It was the first time for me to be a vegetarian in my entire life but, surprisingly I did not miss meats what so ever since food was amazingly good. I could not get enough my Chapati. haha The staffs who work at accommodation are very kind and always smiley towards everyone to make sure our stay is as comfortable as possible. The coordinator here is great too! He is always making sure we are doing alright with classes, adapting the new environment and having a great time in Rishikesh in general. He is a fun, accommodating, responsible and great coordinator overall. Location is.....breathtaking. The accommodation is just by the Ganga and Rishikesh has the very special atmosphere. I cannot describe with words. It is positive but calm, spiritual but vibrant. You should go there to feel it by yourself. It is truly special- I have never felt that before. I cannot thank enough and it is hard to express how grateful I am to experience all the things that I have experienced in Rishikesh. My classmates from all over the world are now my lifelong friends and I am thankful for Yoga to unite all of us in the Yoga capital of the world, Rishikesh.

Review by Natalie Maddy from United States


"200 Hour YTT"

This program was undeniably the best experience I could have asked for in a yoga retreat that also provided a teacher training course. It was spiritual, educational, and so much more than merely becoming a certified yoga teacher. I learned how to channel my inner energies to develop peace within myself. I made lifelong friends who journeyed here from around the world, much like myself. In coming here, I learned more about India s beautiful culture and also about who I am. All of the teachers taught life lessons beyond just the structured content in which we had to learn. The food was delicious every day, and the coordinator was more than accommodating to all of our needs. This journey was so magical for me that I extended my stay one more month to further my learning here and to reap all the benefits of Rishikesh before returning home. My yoga practice was much improved, and I am thankful for the chance I had here to deepen my understanding of true yogic practices. I will absolutely be back to Rishikesh, the original yoga capitol of the world! Thank you to everyone who helped make this such a special place for me and for everyone involved in this program. This last month truly was an inspiration and a reprieve from my habits of the Western world.

Review by Sonia Stern from United Arab Emirates


"200 Hour YTT"

The Hata, Ashtanga, Alignment and Anatomy teachers really opened my mind to what traditional yoga is all about. This was a refreshing perspective away from the trendy, commercial yoga that I have been exposed to previously in western studios. The school also made a great effort giving us a true indian experience. Location of the school is great. I had an amazing experience and everything exceeding all my expectations.

"200 Hour YTT"

Philosophy classes were a great treasure Each part like anatomy & alignment were coordinated well with hatha & ashtanga classes. All differemt parts blended very well creating one flow. All teachers were eagerly teaching & attempting to give the best.

Review by Shoba M Sumithran from Malaysia


"200 Hour YTT"

An experience that i will carry with me and in me for a lifetime. All the instructors were great gurus. Their passion and understanding, words of encouragement, their sharing of knowledge was simply awesome. Each and everyone of them treated us with so much love, it was like being in one big family. The 10 of us bonded so well with all the Gurus and I learnt alot and it was totally an eye opener for me as to the true meaning of Yoga. The blending of Pranayama, Asanas & Meditation is what Yoga is all about. And I learnt it all in this intense 28 days. I will go back to my home country, Malaysia, carrying with me this wonderful knowledge and I am definitely going to share my unforgettable experience with all my yoga instructors and yogi friends. Thank you so very much..

Review by Rachel Tyers from india


"3 Days Meditation Yoga Retreat"

My time with Rishikesh Nath Yogshala was amazing! In just a short duration with the school, the team became a second family to me. Everyone was so welcoming, kind and went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect for my stay. The coordinator, Arvind, went above and beyond to ensure my happiness. The food was great, with a lot of variety between salads, vegetables, curries, dal and more. The accommodation was also exceptional, especially if you’re used to staying in hostel dorm rooms! The rooms are large, with big balconies, large bathrooms, and comfortable beds. The teaching staff were super passionate and knowledgable. I’ve walked away with a much deeper understanding of meditation, philosophy and pranayama. My asana practice has really strengthened up with the Ashtanga and Hatha yoga classes. I would recommend Rishikesh Nath Yogshala to anyone looking to gain their yoga teacher training certification or to take part in a yoga/meditation retreat!

Review by Marchand Kristine from France


"200 Hour YTT"

I appreciate the regularity, the serious and the quality of the teaching. All the teachers, in their subject, gave to us the best of themself. The immersion during one month, learning philosophy, meditation open a new dimension in our yoga practice. The anatomy course complete the information given during the yoga asana course. i do not forget the pranayama, the ayurveda and the chanting course which help us to improve our breathing, our presence during the yoga practice. Thank to the teachers

Review by Carmelo Polidano from Brazil


"200 Hour YTT"

Quality of the instructors. Quality and willingness of the accomodarions staff to assist and help within their capabilities. Our coordinator Arvind did a very good job trying to please us and improve the training facility and at hawk students requirement. He organizes tours and went out of his way to make the road trips enjoyable.

Review by Jamie Call from United States


"200 Hour YTT"

The education that we received was excellent and I am overjoyed to have studied here. The staff was extremely friendly and interactive and I had a blast with them. I love those guys and miss our dance parties!!! We had four really amazing excursions during the time of our study: rafting, a temple and a dam, a cave and a waterfall. A great way to break the monotony of the week and explore India! The quality of the teaching was very high. The teachers were open to questions and gave great explanations. Anatomy was exceptionally good I understand the body better now than I did after 2 semesters of college anatomy and physiology. Philosophy was comprehensive. Food was great. Some people thought it was monotonous but it was always delicious and pretty healthy. The kitchen staff are so sweet, too! Overall an amazing experience. I think this is a new program and that explains their organizational issues. When everything gets ironed out it will be a truly spectacular School.
