Teachers were the most kindest support during all the training.

All of them are experienced teachers with know how on subjects.

I have had an incredible experience completing the 200RYT with Himalayan Yoga Association. I consider it to be the best in Rishikesh. The teachers are AMAZING, the rooms are very nice and the food is excellent. I also met wonderful students from all over the world. Thank you Ajay and Himanshu for a beautiful place to learn the true meaning and spirit of Yoga.

Jaime Blakely

I am happy to provide a more than positive review for Ajay and his new project at the Himalayan Yoga Association. I had the honor of being Ajay's student, albeit at another school in Rishikesh. However, Ajay was a highlight of my experience. His knowledge about anatomy is really unparalleled in comparison to other experiences I have had in other training programs. He knows the body perfectly, with a seemingly photo perfect memory. That's what you need when you really care about teaching yoga correctly. So many programs skip on this point and glaze over the requirements for anatomy. But honestly, the best parts of the class were when he would digress. Ajay's stories about his own personal ashram experiences and yoga training were inspiring and enlightening. I loved when he would go off on a tangent about this or that...always with a point concerning yoga. He's a storyteller, a genius, a fabulous teacher, and a good person first and foremost. I am sure that whatever project he puts his heart to will be a success.

If your dream is to do yoga teacher training with the best teachers in Rishikesh..... i highly recommend Ajay, Yashpal, Himanshu, Yogesh and Rajesh and their team at the Himalayan Yoga Ashram. They are by far the best yoga teachers in Rishikesh!!! Doing the 200 hour teacher training at their wonderful school was absolutely life changing for my husband and myself!! I feel so very blessed to have them as my teachers on my yoga journey and i highly recommend their schools to everyone who simply wants to learn from the most inspiring, professional, experienced and extremely talented yet humble teachers in a truly breathtakingly beautiful and serene location. Yogi Yashpal is a well known awarded International Champion of Yoga and i'm not exaggerating when i say he and Yogi Rajesh are God gifted freaks!! Yogi Ajay and Yogi Yogesh are so knowledgable and make learning anatomy and physiology so interesting and fun and easy to understand. They are so insightful and incredibly inspiring. The teachers and their lovely wives, Prabha and Megha and lovely staff including Gabbatin, the wonderful chef who cooks delicious healthy meals, have a beautiful warm and positive energy and are very caring. They make you feel so welcome like you are family....we made friendships that we will treasure for life. I can absolutely assure you that you will enjoy your time at this school as much as we did. Namaste
