Yogi Manish Ji
Yogi Rajeev Ji is a highly motivated yoga teacher with specialization in Hatha and Ashtanga yoga. He holds Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering. As he started to work after his graduation, he realized that he doesn’t want to work in corporate life. Following this realization, he decided to pursue yoga as both a career and lifestyle and he got Master’s Degree in Yogic Science. He has a passion to inspire people to improve their wellness and find their way in life. He enjoys serving people to explain to them the importance of yoga to create oneness within one’s own self.
Yogi Deenath will be one of your instructors for this yoga teacher training.
Ashutosh Mishra born and bought up in Rishikesh, known as international capital of yoga, it was in his gene to enjoy and explore the great ancient art of yoga and he is strongly rooted in Hatha yoga and Therapeutic yoga. His style is a dynamic combination of intelligent sequencing and alignment for the body and health condition of the person. He was introduced to yoga at a very tender age. So his father enrolled him at the University of Patanjali. He spent three years at the university and earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Yogic Science.
After practicing yoga from a very early age of 12, he decided to leave his family and friends behind to pursue the yogic path and meet his first yoga master - Narayan Muni at Jharsuguda Muni Samaj Yoga Ashram. It was here he took his first steps into the Himalayan tradition. In 1988, he met his second yoga master - Swami Niranjan Ji to learn the wisdom of the Vedas. There, he came across the Jnana Yoga (knowledge), which taught him the important lessons in the path to self-realization. Yogi Vishnu was initiated into the Raja Yoga system by his great guru, Swami Veda Bharati and Swami Rama.

"Great online training experience"
Great online training experience. Quick response on all inquiries. Instructors were always helpful with student questions and challenges.
I have never done an online course of this kind and it was very interactive. Students did not feel alone in their journey with a bunch of videos. There was lots of support.

"Exceeds the expectation"
To begin with I wasn't too keen to do YTT online but considering the current situation with Covid, I just wanted to give it a go while waiting for life to be back to normal. And I'm so glad I did. From the beginning to end everything was very well organised. All the teachers have been amazing. Especially Yogi Vishnu who is so welcoming, helpful, insightful and Devesh who is an excellent alignment teacher, so helpful, makes the classes so much fun. Within the group, I could feel so much positive energy, support and love with the other participants, even though we only met through messages and zoom meetings. The knowledge I gained with this course is not something I can be thankful enough. And I don't believe that I would learn as much if I were to do the training in person anywhere else. This school doesn't only teach asanas and anatomy. Everything is taught starting with its foundation which made me feel appreciate and admire Yoga philosophy even more. The material that is given would cost a fortune if I were to buy them as books and even then I'm not sure if it would be this good and beneficial.
With this course I believe that I now have a family in Rishikesh and I can't wait to visit India.
This course is a must do whether you are becoming a new yoga teacher or you've been teaching for many years. I am already planing my 300 hour course with them. I cannot recommend this course enough.
from Germany, May 2021
It was the best decision to book this ytt.I didn't miss anything.
There were never any technical problems and the courses and materials were very good. It was perfect all around and I would book it again.

"200h online YTT - So thankful for this journey "
I just completed the 200h YTT online and I would like to heartily recommend this YTT. I have been able to learn so much from truly wonderful and authentic teachers over the past few weeks. The whole YTT is very structured and you learn a lot. The time was a great enrichment for me! Many thanks to Guruji Vishnu, Devesh, Guna and the Team! Best regards from Munich, Daniela

"Excellent Holistic Yoga Teacher Training "
The course is really comprehensive, it covers all the essential aspect of Yoga and goes even beyond that by transmitting a Philosophy of Life which can help adopt a healthier lifestyle and gives true values to be better Human being & better teacher ! All the teachers are excellent and at the same time humble, funny and kind. I did the course online, it's impressive how the whole organization managed to put together such a holistic and good content - I am looking forward to be able to go physically in Rishikesh.
from France, April 2021
I like the teachers views on many subjects however I think they should adapt how they teach to where their pupils are from.

"Review of Living Yoga School 200 hour Ashtanga course"
I found this course to be very valuable. My teachers, Guru Vishnu and the asana teacher Devesh, were friendly and knowledgable. Guru Vishnu is a warm and loving man with a deep passion and knowledge of yoga and spirituality. He really walks the walk and has dedicated his life to his teachings. Devesh is approachable, funny, and competent, with the right balance of being gentle and pushing his students.
The online course was well laid out, well presented and easy to navigate. Questions were answered quickly on our WhatsApp group. Turning my front room into a yoga studio every day, whilst not as ambitious as travelling to Rishikesh, was a great way to get this globally recognised qualification. One day I would love to go there and thank them personally. I highly recommend this course for the quality of the training, the warmth and professionalism of the teachers, and the information they impart.
from Sri Lanka, March 2021
I did the online YTT and it was the best idea 2021 to go to this new journey and to my new myselfe. I liked the live classes from mo-sa and also the videos to watch ny myselfe. Guru Ji Vishnu did so much to create the online course and the money is worth every cent!
from Netherlands, January 2021
The yoga classes and philosophy were very inspiring and I enjoyed them very much. As there is a lot of online material available, you can do the teacher training really at your own pace! It was a great experience.
from Singapore, January 2021
"Priceless! Dont think, just do"
The knowledge is extensive. Everything was very well explained. The biggest asset from the course is the group of like minded folks and community.
If you are still thinking about it, dont think, just do it. Worth every penny!
from Germany, January 2021
"Amazing YTT course "
I loved everything about the course. Devesh who taught us Hatha was one of the best teachers I've had in my yoga practice. Not only, he taught us asanas but philosophy of life. We were always blown away by the classes and lectures. I loved the philosophy classes from guru-ji who just taught us that yoga is an art of living. The course is so comprehensive as you learn the path of yoga as a lifestyle and not just a way to become a yoga teacher. It has been a rewarding experience to have such a wonderful community who has dedicated their lives to do this!
from Germany, January 2021
"Excellent Yoga Programme providing more than you can wish"
The course is of great quality, lessons are made easy and understandable, without being "flat' or superficial. An extra teaching on Yoga Nidra is included and many lessons that will you bring closer to yourself. This is a unique experience to get to know the Indian traditional yoga teachings. The teachers are amazing, nice, patient and very wise. It feels as if you are with your family, you are being taken care of just as well.
from Sweden, January 2021
"What an amazing course!"
This course will change your life. It will change the way you look at yourself and reality. I absolutely loved Guriji's philosophy classes and Devesh alignment class was challenging but made me feel great in my body. Many thanks to all the teachers and everyone at World Peace Yoga School.
from France, December 2020
That the best teacher that I know in my life, the best knowledge ... all the training was amazing, I had more that I have expected.
from Italy, December 2020
I really enjoyed the live classes on zoom, where we were able to ask questions to the teachers and receive accurate answers, we could share every day how we felt ...it was really like been inside a class and learning together with other fellow travellers
from Spain, December 2020
"Amazing Experience! "
This online yoga teacher training has been fantastic on all levels. I had no idea what to expect, and I’m so happy I signed up. The course has been life-changing for me in so many ways. I came to learn more about the asanas, but I ended up being more interested in philosophy, yoga Nidra, pranayama, mantras, and meditation. The philosophy classes with Guruji were the best. He made me look at the world and myself from a very different and new perspective. I felt that everything clicked inside my heart, mind, and soul. It has been easy to learn and understand. The teachers are great at explaining big concepts in an easy way. I’m very thankful for this experience. Thank you SO much. This has changed my life and I’m excited to continue to learn. I’ll come and visit the ashram in India soon. If you are here wondering whether to take the course or not, DO IT. You will not regret it. I have a much deeper understanding of what true and traditional yoga is, and I’m incredibly grateful for that. I will take all this knowledge with me. Thank you all! Namaste

"200hr multi style "
My month long online course with living yoga school was truly transformational!
I was really impressed with the communication and online live teaching as well as the recorded footage online. Everyone on the course was really supportive and experienced. Despite being online, we really built up a community and became a family. The support of Ashu and Guru Vishnu was amazing, no question was too big or small or silly! This course has not only given me the tools to confidently teach yoga, but also changed the way that I look at the world completely, and I am so glad for the experience and for the teachings. 100% worth every penny and more! I can’t wait to continue my study with Living yoga school and one day be able to visit in person.
from Ireland, December 2020
"Amazing knowladge, experiance and atmosphere"
It was one of the most powerfull and enjoyable courses I did. Online course, all the live Zoom classes and the material for learning are amazing! I learn so much and I am looking forward to seeing again🙏 Thank you sooo much, it was beautiful time and I miss you already🤗
from Austria, December 2020
"Amazing experience "
This was my first yoga teacher training online course and I have to say that what i experienced was beyond my expectations. Teachers shared not only the knowledge from books but also their life experience, the knowledge of being, the knowledge of life. This course not just gave me the knowledge about yoga postures from anatomic, theoretical and practical side, but also about yoga as lifestyle from people who live that lifestyle.
Amazing experience. Can just recommend this course. I will do with them also other courses and will repeatedly this one as well.
So grateful for this experience.
from Great Britain, November 2020
"Very good online experience"
The online community of like-minded people. Great materials. Very good value for what we have got.

"Self paced 200 hour review"
Amazing experience! I was hesitant at first at doing my training online as I always had wanted to travel and immerse myself when doing my training. I still feel like I got the co plate experience.
from Spain, November 2020
"Life changing in every way"
I’m eternally gratefully for my deepened understanding of asana but most of all I am grateful for the teachings of Yogi Vishnu. This course has changed everything and I love all of the teachers dearly
from United States, November 2020
"Learn the REAL yoga. Transformative. Mind blowing."
This was an amazing, mind blowing, brain, heart and soul expanding experience. I have been taking yoga classes for 20 years. I cannot believe that I really had no idea of the essence of yoga until this course. Yes, I had read some books and had done some workshops at US yoga studios, but I always thought the spiritual side was kinda hokey. Now fast forward to getting up at 5 AM every morning and having a small group of students learn yogic philosophy from a real live guru. Incredible. Yogi Vishnu just pours out the love and was so kind and concerned about me, and everyone personally. When I asked questions he would give brilliant, challenging and self reflective answers, specifically to me. I felt so loved.
Also he has this walking, talking living meditation where you see him slip out of almost consciousness for a few moments and come back at peace with a smile. It just made me want what he has. Made me want to go on a serious journey and really dedicate myself to the yogic lifestyle and meditation.
The material was definitely way more than 200 hours. I think there was more like 400 hours of readings, classes, live classes, tutorials... Hard to do while living your normal life at home. But the materials are very rich and you have access to it long after the class. I would have liked a much longer course but with the same materials in order to savor it and learn more slowly and deeply.
Overall don't miss this opportunity to study with the great masters of yoga.
from Great Britain, November 2020
"200hr online - If you're thinking of booking... do it!! "
I didn't have high hopes about an online teacher training experience but this more that exeded any expectations. I can honestly say this has been a transformative experience. It has been a real privilege to have live classes and lectures from not only brilliant teachers but also beautiful humans. The community with the other students was wonderful. I highly recommend this course. Thankyou Guruji and all involved with this school.
from Canada, November 2020
"A excelent yoga school!"
I found the program to be a wonderful mix of yoga philosophy and asana which helped me to strengthen my own practice, provided me with the confidence to teach and bring yoga philosophy into my daily life. If you've had this dream [becoming a yoga teacher] then I encourage you to enrol as well - I am glad I did. Namaste.
from Spain, November 2020
"More than I could expect!"
I have done a course with the school via online, the 200hours YOGA teacher training. I think that it is really complete, I did research before and compare different courses and I can say that I am really happy to have chosen this school. Is not only about all what you will learn, is about how much they make you feel you are important and they want you to learn and participate as much as possible. They keep inviting you to different life events outside from the course and that allows you to keep practicing even you finished the course. I highly recommend this course, because you can feel that they care, there is a human factor. I am a beginner in yoga and I see there is so much field to run still, but this has been a really good beginning and hopefully I will try do more courses with them, probably next by going there. Thank you so much for all your enlightment!!!

"If you are looking for a fountain, then this is the place."
From 1st Sept. 2020 to 25th Sept. 2020 I attended the Self Paced Online 200-Hour Multi Style Yoga Teacher Training program provided by Living Yoga School. Upon finishing this fantastic program, I want to say a big “thank you!” to everyone at Living Yoga to make this beautiful journey a reality. My deepest gratitude goes to Guruji Vishnu. Thank you for offering light, clarity and energy. Your inner world shines through.
For viewers who are considering taking the same program online, I wrote a lengthy description of my experience. Due to word count limitation on this site, I will attach the URL link to my google review here. In summation, two thumbs up!
from Great Britain, November 2020
"So much knowledge"
I have completed my 200 hours Multi-style Yoga Teacher Training with Living Yoga School and I can't even describe how grateful I am!!
Due to pandemic I had to cancel my trip to Rishikesh and I was a bit sceptical about getting my qualification through an online training, but finally I am very happy I did. you have daily live lessons and so many videos online that I don't think you could get all that knowledge even through a month worth of lessons.
I have learnt the philosophy and yogic lifestyle from Guru Vishnu, who is the founder of Living Yoga school and other 4 Ashrams in Rishikesh. He is so experienced having started his spiritual path at the age I think. He such a knowledgeable, wise but humble soul.
I learnt Asana practice, Alignment and Anatomy from Ashu ji who is an incredible teacher, always explaining two, three or four times if you don't understand something.
I cannot really rate the accommodation and facilities as this was an online training, but I would think by the other reviews that are more than satisfying.
I would recommend this course to anyone that intends to learn real traditional Yoga and start their own spiritual path.
from Norway, November 2020
It was nice to have the consistency and accountability!
from Switzerland, November 2020
THe philosophy classes helped me to understand myself and the world better and deeper, thank you Yogi Vishnu. Also thank you to Devesh with the yoga classes, I learned a lot. As it was an online course, I cannot say anything about the food/accomondation/location, because I was not there.
from Bangladesh, November 2020
I completed the Oct2020 Online training - and despite being online, the class and group of students was held together in a very authentic and genuine manner. Yogi's engaged daily with us as a group, answered any questions that we had and went the extra mile to ensure that we were all engaged and connected. It was also an enlightening and fun experience and I am sad that it is over. I now cannot wait to visit the school in Rishikesh
from United Arab Emirates, November 2020
"Authentic, genuine, generous teachers, masters"
Guru Vishnu , Devesh ji (i got to know them through live classes) , Suendra ji (he taught through recorded classes). There is immense knowledge these individuals possess and they try their absolute best to teach their students about their subjects. To know and spend time with these personalities was a privilege.
There is a lot of reading material too that is very valuable. If I break down the cost per hour we had just for the live classes alone, it was unbelievably worthwhile.
It was a great option for me since it was not possible to attend in person training yet. I was sceptical about an online course, but it is absolutely worth investing in.
I also found out the value of studying with an Indian school, which is that they are involved in charity work, so it is a bonus to know that you support their causes indirectly.
This is probably not the last course I will take, as the yogic journey is lifelong. I'm very happy that I took the first step with Living Yoga school, and Guru Vishnu and the rest of the teachers in understanding the core values of this discipline.
from Malta, November 2020
Fantastic course , inspiring and well structured . The lessons were really informative. This course inspired me to continue learning yoga and I am looking to take more courses with the school.

"Good value for money"
Learned a lot
from New Zealand, November 2020
"Great Online Teachers Training experience "
The material given (books and videos) were fantastic! The online platform was very friendly to use and follow through all the assignments. The live teaching videos were very clear and with loads of knowledge by Ashu. The philosophy classes were beautiful to listen and The authenticity and love from yogi Vishnu Panigrahi could be felt :) I learnt a lot ! Namaste
from Italy, November 2020
"Great recommended online course"
The course gives you a lot of knowledge regarding yoga.
I'm very happy with all the materials and files they provide.
I feel like I need to deepen my knowledge of yoga philosophy after this course. Guru Vishnu made me even more curious about yoga. I love how he explains things with a lot of examples. It's strange how such an experience, even if online, can change you is such a meaningful way. If you're searching for a traditional way of teaching yoga and learn it the right way I highly recommend this course. Don't expect the typical western method involving only asanas. This course is way better then expected!
from Austria, November 2020
Everything was excellent! I’m impressed by the knowledge I got! It was really the high level of preparation and teaching! I’m going to come back to this school for my next level, so YTT 300hours. I think in a couple of months. I#d like to thank all the teachers and Guru ji Vishnu!
from Great Britain, October 2020
Journey with Living Yoga School was incredible... I feel that I found myself, it made me a better person! Knowledge, wisdom and support what I received it was more than I expected. Thank you for everything!
from South Africa, October 2020
"Life changing experience"
What an incredible course. In our opening ceremony, Guru Vishnu told us that though we couldn't come to Rishikesh, Rishikesh would come to us in our homes, and truer words could not have been spoken. We formed such a bond as a class and I felt such a connection to my teachers and my fellow students. I learned so much during this month, but what I learned the most is how much more there is to learn. I have had this flame ignited within me and I have this deep desire to keep learning. For that, I will be eternally grateful to my teachers and to everyone behind the scenes who made this online course such a beautiful experience.
from Great Britain, October 2020
"Online yoga course"
This course was a real awakening. I came from a fairly typical western yoga attitude, believing I would just learn to teach a few yoga poses safely and talk about breathing. The school and its traditional yoga teachings really was fabulous in gently introducing me a deeper understanding of the many aspects of yoga and how to share that knowledge with others.
from France, October 2020
"My experience during the 200 YTT online course."
My experience during the 200 YTT online course... Has been incredible!
I came to this site looking for a school in Rishikesh to be able to do my training directly with local teachers. As soon as I found this school I had a good, direct feeling. I thought I was in the right place ... and yes, I was.
It was a journey full of love from our Gurus.
I have learned a lot and I think this is just beginning!
They have transmitted their knowledge with honesty, humility and authenticity.
The online classes are great material and the option of being able to complete this course at my own pace is of great importance.
Namaste Guruji, Devesh, and everyone at Living Yoga School!
from Australia, October 2020
"Most magnificent experience & most magnificent humans :'))"
My experience during our 200 YTT online course has been incredible! I stumbled across this site as I was researching more about YTT. I thought I would give it a go, with no real expectations or prior experience.. it has exceeded everything. The people I got to connect with all over the world, even during these strange times has been a breath of the purist air. I've learnt more in the past month about yoga, life and myself than I think a lot of people ever do. The online modules and choice to complete this course at our own pace has helped heaps. I think the simplest way to describe it is, our wonderful Guru's, teachers and peers have all come together to continue our path of enlightenment and the knowledge and wisdom shared kinda sets us up in a way for every aspect of our lives and yoga practise that I can't even really express, but you should all experience for yourselves. :') Thank you and I am forever grateful. Namaste. <3
Thank you Guruji and Devesh, every body at Living Yoga School aaaand our beautiful class. You wonderful souls.

"I really love the course and would recommend it to anyone!"
The freedom of doing it online and at my own pace. The teacher we’re also really good and committed

Thank you so much, Guruji , ashu and all for this wonderful experience which already change and transform my life ! Hope see you soon in Rishikesh when it will be possible !
"Transformational Experience - high quality 200 hours online "
200 hours online yoga teacher training - Transformational course that I enjoyed so much. I have been practicing yoga and meditation for a number of years, but there were so many things on this course that I learnt that were totally new to me, and I now feel like I have a much more holistic understanding of yoga, not just as a physical activity, but a mental, spiritual and lifestyle practice. Every single day I can see myself making progress, not just in my understanding but in what I am capable of doing. The quality of the teaching was to a very high standard, and the teachers and course organisers were very patient with all our questions on Whatsapp, that were promptly answered! The amount of material provided also was fantastic, and I know I will still be watching the videos and reading the e-books for months to come! I feel like the experience also has had such a positive impact on my overall lifestyle and wellbeing - I am less interested in pizza and have more inclination to get up early and straight onto my yoga mat! I know this experience will stay with me for the rest of my life, and I am excited to share what I have learnt with others as a teacher. I can't wait to do my next course with Living Yoga School one day :)
Note - there was no option to say NA for the food and accommodation as this course was online, but the course teaches you lots of great things about how you should eat and live your daily life so I still gave it "Excellent" :)
from Norway, October 2020
"200 hours self paced YTT with World Peace yoga school"
I am very grateful for the possibility of taking 200 hours YTT self-paced course from Rishikesh on line. The course is organized very well, systematic and scientific, covering all aspects of yoga. The teachers are knowledgeable and motivating and available to help any time during the course. The videos provided are of high quality. I have learned a lot about subjects I found difficult to understand and implement in my praxis and daily life before, like pranayama, meditation, mudras, bandhas, mantra... I would recommend this course to anyone seeking to learn more about yoga and deepen their understanding of the origins and purpose of yoga in human life.
from Ireland, September 2020
"Online 200hr multi style teacher training"
I really enjoyed and would highly recommend this course. I tried to attend as many live classes as I could enabling a rapport to be built with the teachers and other students. All the instructors were very patient and informative answering the many queries we had on the whats app group that they set up for us, which was also a great idea and allowed us to share info with each other. Altogether a great value for money course. I particularly enjoyed the philosophy lectures.
from Slovakia, September 2020
It was my first time doing a Yoga teachers course and because of the whole corona madness I decided to take it online. I was quite sceptical at the beginning, but this changed very fast when I realised I can really learn a lot through this online course. I am doing the course self-paced because of work so unfortunately I couldn´t join any of the live classes. However, I have to say all the materials are enough to make me feel ready to teach a yoga class. All the videos are easy to understand and provide you with a lot of knowledge. I am truly happy I decided to take this course and would definitely recommend it to anyone who has doubts about taking a online YTTC. I am looking forward to visiting the school in person :) Namaste.
from Canada, September 2020
"Enriching online experience!"
There are a lot of resources provided to help learn anatomy, pranayama and philosophy as well as the ashtanga and hatha classes. The instructors made themselves very accessible to reach out to whenever you need to which is very helpful as a self paced student. I think online is a great way to go for 200 hour YTT as a beginner it was very simple to practice from home and very cost effective as well. I hope to come to Living Yoga School for 300 hour YTT someday soon!
from Sweden, September 2020
"Very good online yoga teacher training "
This is a very good alternative if you want to take a teacher training course online and self-paced! Engaged teachers and a lot of love and positivity! Very good value for the money as well! Would recommend!
from Hong Kong, September 2020
"Life changing experience"
This is a life changing experience. I couldn't visit India for yoga instructor training retreat due to (1) Covid (2) full time job. Online classes gave me opportunity to learn more about not only asanas, but philosophy, theories, history, anatomy benefits of yoga. All the teaching staffs are patient with high professionalism. I highly recommend this course for people who cannot travel, but still want to be enlightened and be happy by yoga. Namaste.
from Portugal, September 2020
"Amazing experience, very enriching knowledge"
I loved the whole experience but I should highlight the availability of the teachers to clarify all our questions, to ensure we had the best possible experience. I had never thought of taking a yoga Instructor course in India if it weren’t for this opportunity and although I had no previous knowledge in teaching yoga and limited practice skills, I felt they wanted us all to evolve, whatever our previous experiences where. I am very much interested now in deepening my knowledge and practice and I’m sure it would be perfect if I could take this course in person when it is safe to travel again.

"Very good "

"Great experience; very valuable online course"
I am extremely grateful for 'Living Yoga School' to offer such a comprehensive program, which has been thoughtfully tailored to everyone's needs and possibilities due to financial or time restrictions. Here we have the chance to learn more than I have ever imagined learning in 25 days by receiving the proper attention and support from our teachers. Guru JI delivers the most enriching teachings about yoga philosophy, which I much appreciate along with the substantial information we receive in the anatomy/ pranayama class and the wonderful- both challenging and rewarding Ashtanga class.
I could not be more happy for the decision I have taken to join this course and to embark in the process of self-discovery through yoga.
from Philippines, September 2020
"I learned how to live and lead a life of yoga!"
I am very glad to have chosen this course for my 200-hour multi-style yoga teacher training! The concepts and practices I learned exceeded my expectations. I recommend this training for everyone - beginner and advanced students alike. The gurus and the team behind the scenes excellently arranged a course so holistic - there is so much more to learn beyond the asanas and the things we learn inside a studio. Don’t believe that you will get 50 hours of live sessions and 200 hours total.. because you’ll get SO MUCH MORE from this course. Frankly, I would not call it a “200-hour yoga teacher training”.. to me, it’s a complete guidance to live and lead a life if yoga according to the Himalayan traditions and age-old vedic philosophy. I deeply enjoyed the yoga philosophy classes best as these brought together all the wisdom and concepts we learned from the other classes and videos. I am full of gratitude for all the humble and wise gurus who helped us find our own light. 200 hours, 25 days - so short and sweet. But the real training starts the day we end the training.
I am also deeply thankful for the team behind the scenes who took care of all our needs and concerns. Thank you for your patience and understanding! It is wonderful how the school arranges the online classes on a day to day basis. Everyone’s dedication is exceptional.
I wish I were there in India to soak up all the wisdom. I hope to train live in Living Yoga School, Rishikesh one day!
from Japan, September 2020
"Great course. Flexible. "
I liked how the instructors really practice what they teach. Yogi Ji was very knowledgable about the poses and was extremely willing to answer questions. The course had access to a lot of material including an entire self-paced course online that we were free to complete.

from Germany, September 2020
The online program is a great alternative to an in person teaching when you are not able to travel and have to work. It provides all of the information online and it is well structured, so it's perfect to view the lectures on your own pace and plan your own schedule. Guru ji and the teachers are very welcoming and it has been an wonderful experience to be able to learn from them. I am very grateful for this course! Thank you

"My yoga journey"
I was a little bit suspicious at first about online training. I was not sure could it really be effective. But it was so great and I am happy I joined. I am complete beginner in ashtanga, and during the live zoom classes (that were included to this otherwise self-paced training) I learned a lot. Yogi Vishnu has an amazing presence and energy, and he supports students generously. Videos were nicely done, and there is plenty of material to study. All the books are also included. Very nice experience.

The course was online and it was great to be able to sit in these rather unusual times. All teachers are very professional and always there to help and answer any questions. There is a great deal of information to take on and all modules and recordings are excellent. I felt very supported and all teachers are so kind and generous with their time. I would defiantly recommend this course for anyone looking for an authentic course and say thank you to all the teachers for all the learnings. Thank you
"Great teachers! Rich contents!"
All teachers are so enthusiastic and explain very well even it is difficult contents. They helped us to understand clearly and so supportive.
I took online course, so I cant review about facilities and food.
But as long as I see from the movie, it seems to be OK. So I will go to the site in India in nearly feature.

"Great online self-paced 200hr Yoga Teacher Training "
This course has been a great experience and I have learnt so much. I encourage anyone to join and highly recommend it. I have chosen to do the self-paced 200 hour online course which has been great since I work full-time.
The teachers are wonderful and I am so grateful I chose this school for my training.
Highly recommend it.
from Great Britain, September 2020
I am so glad that I booked this programme, it has been an amazing and life changing experience from start to end.
All of the teachers are so phenomenally wise and knowledgeable, and teach each class with fantastic English.
The content of the 200 hour YTT far exceeded my expectations, but completely offered me what I sought, a traditional, authentic yoga experience.
Despite previously completing a 500 hour YTT, I have come away from this 200 hour teacher training with far more understanding of all of the aspects of yoga practice, from the Asanas and pranayama, to mudras, mantras and philosophy.
I am so grateful for the experience, and for the schools willingness to share other events and experiences with the students, and during August, we were fortunate to experience Ganesh Chaturthi, which was wonderful.
Thank you to Guru Ji and all of the teachers for making this a truly unforgettable YTT.
I highly recommend Living Yoga School for anyone who is wanting to become a Yoga teacher or just deepen their own personal knowledge of Yoga.

"Online 200 YTTC at Living Yoga School"
Just finished online 200 YTTC today. Amazing 25 days of full time training on all aspects of yoga - ashtanga, hatha, pranayama, philosophy...
Its been different learning yoga online but it is effective if you remain focused and disciplined with the classes.
Would be nice to be in Rishikesh, but under a Covid lockdown, this is the next best thing.
Really enjoyed the ashtanga and hatha training as teachers are amazing!.
Highly recommend this school and course for anyone who is passionate about yoga..! Go for it!!!

"A Great YTT, a Life Changing Experience! "
I went to this YTT with great expectations that were actually exceeded by the program. The knowledge and methodology of the teachers is excellent. They all teach in the yogic tradition of the Himalayas! You really get the chance to learn yoga asanas, yogic philosophy and lifestyle as per the tradition and lineage of Northern India! Even if the course was online, the connection you make with the teachers and with the rest of the class is great - a proof that human connection is possible in so many ways, not only through physical acquaintance only. I am really happy I gave myself the change to receive for 25 days Rishikesh in my home and I feel so much enriched in my knowledge and practice of Ashtanga and Hatha yoga after this teacher training! Namaste!

This was an online Yoga teacher Training Course done during the period where travelling was not an option. So I cannot review them on accommodation/food/facilities/location, though I can only imagine they would offer a very warm welcome.
It was a wonderful experience, I enjoyed the learning process, although it was intensive - it really gave me a beautiful introduction to the deep and bottomless ancient knowledge of yoga.
As an online course, the classes were well structured and planned (with compliments to Ashu Ji and Surendra Ji)
Guru Vishnu Ji shared his wisdom on yoga philosophy, meditation and yoga nidra.
85% of the classes were held on zoom, where you felt connected to the teachers and fellow students, then there were also some pre-recorded videos which allowed for self study. All questions were answered with care and deep insight. The teachers, the administrative team and film crew were amazing and so dedicated.
They also provide you with reading material and footage of the classes afterwards if there was anything that you had missed you'd be able to go through that in your self study times. It was carefully thought out from beginning to end.
If you're wondering whether you can do an Online Yoga Teacher Training Course, yes, absolutely! I'm so thankful for this experience, it has been so valuable and I will be applying what I have learnt throughout the course of my life. With highest recommendation.

"BEST 200 HR. YOGA COURSE ONLINE"
Amazing program. So much information and knowledge from all the teachers and the staff working for this course. This was an amazing journey where I not just became stronger and more knowledgeable about Yoga, but I grew so much in the spiritual aspect. Everyone was there for me, whenever I had a question or needed something. So much effort from the teachers and team of Living Yoga School. I feel so blessed and happy for going through this journey with you. Thanks!!!!

"Gratitude fills my heart <3"
i am Kathelijne, originally from Holland, but living in Luxembourg, that mini country in between France, Germany and Belgium :)
Today is the last day of an 200hrs online multi- style teacher training! the past 25 days have been an very interesting journey :) I have been learning so much from our extremely knowledgable teachers. Guru Vishnu Ji, has been sharing his wisdom and experiences about the yoga philosophy, Ashu Ji has been pushing us with a lot of humor through the asana classes and the passionated and kind Surendra Ji explained us in very easy and understandable words all we needed to know about the Pranayamas techniques and Anatomy. I feel so grateful that I was able to study under them and I will carry and share this wisdom within my heart and soul for the rest of my life!
Even through an online course I've been feeling Rishikesh's strong spiritual vibes, and I am looking forward to meet you all (for real) , as soon as we are able to travel again!
Without any doubt or hesitation I strongly recommend one of Guru Vishnu Ji's schools, the Samadhi Yoga Ashram, World Peace Yoga School, Living Yoga School or Vinyasa Yoga Acadamy.
Love and light to all of you,

Pour ma part, tout était parfait. J'ai appris tellement de chose pendant ces 3 semaines. J'ai adoré chaque minute. Guru Vishnu est incroyable de gentillesse et de sagesse, il prend le temps d'expliquer avec patience, sagesse et parfois avec humour la philosophie et la "lifestyle" du Yoga (entre autre), Yogi Devesh est un des meilleurs professeurs de yoga que j'ai eu la chance de rencontrer, il est bienveillant, clair et il amène ses élèves à améliorer leur posture, leur pratique et leurs connaissances avec une grande maitrise. Les autres cours sont donnés en video mais les contenus sont détaillés et vraiment très interessants (bravo pour les cours d'anatomie et de Yoga thérapeutique qui sont passionnants). Nous avons également pu profiter d'un cours de danse "Yogique" avec Sujatha et Guna a été là pendant tout le séjour pour nous aider, nous accompagner, nous rassurer....Bref, c'était vraiment un beau et merveilleux voyage que j'ai fait avec eux et je sais qu'il n'est pas fini. Merci ;)

War alles wunderbar. Die vermittelte Philosophie war mein absolutes Highlight. Ein super online Kurs, vielen Dank für alles.
from France, November 2020
Ce online yoga teacher training est incroyablement complet au niveau des livres, cours sur la plateforme et cours live. Devesh était un professeur incroyable, nous mettant en confiance et malgré le fait que ce soit en ligne, il nous corrigeait nos postures et alignements. Les cours du soir sur la philosophie du yoga avec Guru ji était incroyablement profond et soignant. Recevoir le teaching et la bénédiction de Yogi Vishnu Panugrahi est un vrai privilège.
Je recommande ce training a tous ce qui souhaite s'engager sur le voie du yoga!

Formation complète et dense pour un prix très raisonnable. Professeurs investis.

de toewijding van de guru's om ons te begeleiden op een manier dat in ons eigen schema, leven, .. past, is ongelooflijk! De combinatie van een online platform met online hatha en filosofie, verrijkt elke dag enorm, en brengt ons na een maand een hele grote verandering in maturiteit en kennis over de traditionele yoga-cultuur. Deze school staat volledig open om hun leerlingen bij te staan, vragen te beantwoorden, mee te voelen, mee te groeien.. Ik had geen idee dat deze online-versie van een retreat zo een impact zou kunnen hebben op persoonlijk niveau. Ik groei -ook na deze cursus- nog steeds op mijn eigen tempo verder, met een zeer gegrond steunpunt vanuit Rishikesh, vanuit een hart dat klopt om de wereld te veranderen op de meest liefdevolle manier.

"Una experiencia increíble : ) ¡Con ganas de más!"
Comienzas a aprender cosas nuevas desde el minuto uno. El mundo del yoga es infinitamente amplio y aunque piensas que sabes o entiendes cosas, este curso y sobre todo estos profesores me han enseñado mucho. Antes de hacer el curso practicaba el yoga de otra manera, pero después de estas 200 horas de curso veo y entiendo el yoga de otra manera, eso es lo que siento. Podría estar escuchando las clases de Yogi Vishnu por horas...es increíble y muy enriquecedor. Las clases online de Ashtanga son también muy gratificantes y yo personalmente las seguí día a día y mi cuerpo se transformó. En general ha sido una experiencia increíble que recomiendo a todo yogi, yogini : ) Pronto realizare otro de sus cursos. Muchas gracias a todo el equipo. Nere

"Unforgettable experience full of knowledge and love!"
I absolutely think that the amazing teachers the school has and the proactive students made the experience so worth it. I felt at home right away with the new family that my friends became to be. I was very inspired to learn and to share what I know. The environment was very private and natural which enriched the learning and practicing of Yoga. This training is intensive but very very fun!!!

"World class yogi teachers"
I loved the whole program. I loved how each teacher made a connection with each student. Feeling safe and comfortable to open up to the teachers for guidance not only in yoga but in all of life’s problems.
