I had a wonderful time at the school. The staff is friendly and the studies are informative. The rooms are comfortable and the location is quiet. I would recommend not going in April/May as it is too hot. There are 2 options: the Ayurveda Course and the Yoga Teacher Training (200hr) combined with the Ayurveda Course. Only downside is i would of liked to study more about the Ayurvedic Nutrition during the Ayurveda Course, as we had just 3 days of making basic, simple teas, and foods. Dr. Vinod and his wife are very kind and have a lot of knowledge behind their backs. They opened up to us and introduced their children to us and were there to answer any questions we had. I would recommend this school for sure. Thank you for everything!!! Namaste!
I did the Ayurveda Massage & Yoga Teacher Training Course and I'm very happy with it. I learned a lot about yoga, alignments but also about pranayama, mudras and mantras. The latter three aren't really part of many yoga classes in the west, where yoga is mostly seen as a kind of fitness, but less as a spiritual way of living. At least to my experience.
In the Ayurveda Massage course I learned many details not only about Ayurveda and the massage techniques, but also about anatomy, physiology, the connection between yoga and Ayurveda, how Ayurveda can help the body-mind to heal and even some basic cooking recipes. A bit more time to practice the massage techniques would be nice, but I suppose that also depends on how much experience you have with massage generally when starting the course.
What I appreciate a lot is that Vinod and Neethu are also happy to support their alumni after the course, in case you have some doubt when first starting your own practice after you are back home again. Thank you so much for this!

Review by Gabriela Chile
This Ayurveda course is for everyone with or without prior knowledge. For my part I learned a lot, both practical and theoretical classes were very good, with information that certainly improve the quality of life of those who put them into practice. Thank Dr Vinod and his team for their dedication and commitment. Moreover Rishikesh is a beautiful, economical and with a nice atmosphere on the banks of Ganga, where studying in this city is a privilege.

Jon and I studied our Ayurveda Massage Therapy certification here! And I cant stop recommending Dr Vinod Kumar!! Now, were travelling in South America and been featured in different TV shows! The way he trained people depends on the person but youll definitely learn a lot and faster! We even bought powders and herbs from him and brought it to UK to South America! I will definitely come back!
I have done a yoga course which we had anatomy lessons and some ayurveda lessons in this institute. They have top knowledge and an amazing doctor, Dr Vinod which comes from long line of ayurveda doctors in the family. I decide to take an ayurvedic massage course and my view of medicine change a bit. The first day i arrived in India I got a lung infection and I was worried. I went to see Dr Vinod and after a few minutes of talking, he gave me a special diet and a herbal syrup. After 5 days, I was good.. but really good....I had this infection previously back in Europe and I stayed at home taking antibiotics for 2 weeks. I felt really bad throughout that time. So after the experience with Dr Vinod, I wanted to know more about Ayurveda. This institute is amazing. I want to go back to take a longer course, probably panchakarma course or a 3 month ayurveda course. Even Europeans doctors go there to learn more about traditional medicine!!!!!!Namaste
