"Fantastic Retreat"

The whole program far, far exceeded expectations. I was skeptical coming in, given how saturated the Rishikesh area is with YTT courses. Any course could easily cut corners on quality of instruction, quality of food, etc. But RYTTC was wonderful. Considerate, knowledgeable, fantastic instructors; an incredible spread of buffet-style food; a bright, calm studio; functional utilities and accommodations. We met students from other schools, and ours was clearly above-average in just about every way. It's hard to imagine that there's a better course in Rishikesh, especially at this price point.

"Amazing❤️"

For me - the most amazing thing about this place was the people and the location. Sure you could do a yoga course anywhere else in the world but the quality of the teachers here were 100/100. Not only that, the whole place brings the kind of energy and positivity you want and need. I have so much respect for each and every teacher who were all knowledgable and wise. The staff at the school could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Anything they could, do they would. Meals were really good too!

"Stop your search now, book this school!!!"

incorporating group activities, partner stretching and acro yoga.

I did a few private Hatha session with Gopal due to my body not coping well with Astanga and I’m so glad I joined his classes. They were hard work but I always left feeling accomplished. Gopal is a very humble man, it was a pleasure to be taught by him. He doesn’t let you slack off which was what I needed and I always got my sweat on!

Anatomy, this class was a struggle for me, 90% of it definitely didn’t sink in but at the end of the day I still enjoyed going to the class because it was taught by Praful. He is such an inspiring, warm, open, smart man. If you get taught by Praful you will leave feeling blessed. I’ve made a friend in him and I feel grateful for crossing paths.

The pranayama and mantra chanting teacher Pinkie was such a sweet soul with a voice like an angel.

The only advice I offer is make sure you’re in good health before you arrive, go into this with no expectations and prepare your mind for a tough month, it’s not going to be easy but it’s going to be completely worth it.

We were lucky enough to attend a wedding, see the Himalayas and white water raft during our stay.

Prepare yourselves for a lot of dancing, laughing, hugs, challenges and adventures. Come here with an open mind and you will leave here with an even open/full heart like I have. Thank you once again to everyone that helped me on my journey, I will be back. Om shanti, with love Soph 💓💓

"Yogi family"

It's not hard to find a yoga school in Rishikesh, but it's extremely difficult to find a good one. And my time at RYTTC was amazing.

The curriculum went beyond many other schools', both in content and quality. The course was challenging but manageable and all the information felt worthwhile to learn.

The staff were probably the best part of the experience. Everyone was so welcoming and like a family from day one. Almost everyone in our class got sick at one point and the staff bent over backwards to help make us feel better.

The teachers were also amazing - learning from yogis with such passion and dedication was inspiring. I entered the program to learn more about yoga and deepen my practice but my growth far exceeded any expectations I had.

"It's India"

I loved the setting, the food, the other students and the instructors. Everyone was really friendly, kind and thoughtful. I love Sandeep too. Their hearts are so pure with love for all the students, and it shows immensely.

First, if my rating is low - it is not a reflection on the people. I'm just trying to give you a clear perspective. One I don't like Ashtanga yoga, but I thought I could deal with it. (lol) They do push you, but I am not of the philosophy of "no pain, no gain" You have the option to not - which I often didn't keep pushing. Pace yourself - you know your body.

I wish the classes had been outlined more. I did learn things, but lots of things weren't covered. It is fine - I know it is a short period of time. It's hard to cover it all. This is a starting point for your yoga career - if you so choose.

But it is a compassionate school, and even though they have new folks every month, it is your family for a month, and you will make life long friends. Open your heart and take that leap.

"The Rishikesh experience - an excellent 200hrs YTTC course "

Young, talented teachers, traditional Hatha yoga in an environment where the Yogi’s actually practice what they teach! The history and philosophy of Yoga, the 8 limbs and what this means for Yoga practitioners, Asana’s, Pranayama’s, Mantras and cleansing practices. With some Ashtanga Vinyasa thrown in just to keep you on your toes!! Good accomodation, family atmosphere - great group! Rishikesh is amazing and if you’re serious about yoga has to be experienced - the holy heartland of yoga.

"An eye-opening and life changing experience."

I would 100% recommend this course at Rishikesh YTTC! This month changed my life and it wouldn't have been possible without the amazing and friendly team there! Not only was the food, place, accommodation and vibe perfect, yet even the extra excursions (waterfall, movie night, temple in the mountains), activities (zumba, water rafting) and constant help and support from the team made this such a beautiful and memorable trip! Rishikesh is truly magical and I couldn't have chosen a better place and course. I will definitely be coming back!!!

"Very good yoga teacher training"

The training was great, positive vibe and deep knowledge of yoga from the teachers. I will definitely go there again.

"Very good experience!"

So, it’s important to remember that this course, as well as most courses in Rishikesh, are the cheapest you will find. For the price, it is an excellent program. You’re looking at 40-50 USD per day for 8 hours of instruction, 3 meals, and accommodation. For that price, you cannot expect a 5 star resort and restaurant. That being said, I found the taste, variety, and effort of the food and kitchen staff incredible. I also found my room very comfortable. Always had hot water and a beautiful view of the mountains. Course highlights for me include philosophy with Mohit Ji, as he was a knowledgeable and respectful instructor, ending the day with beautiful mantra chanting with Pinky Ji, Ashtanga and Hatha classes, and beginning the day with meditation. Most of the instructors were kind, patient, knowledgeable, and motivating.

The administrative staff was always ready to help when students had problems. I was sick and they offered to take me to the doctor and even arranged for a staff member to go to town and pick up medicine for me. The Sunday activities were a nice bonus.

Finally, the schedule is intense at times (sometimes you just feel so tired and want to rest) but I found it just the right amount. In fact, I craved more material at times. Instructors are understanding if you need to sit out for a class and just watch when sick.

Despite a few flaws, this was one of the most formative months of my life. It allows the time and space for serious self discovery.

"A life-changing experience! "

I absolutely loved the 200 hour teaching course at Rishikesh YTTC. If you go in with an open mind and heart, and are eager to learn, you will not regret it! The staff and management are full of love, and go above and beyond to make it the best experience for everyone. Plus they throw great dance parties and awesome Sunday activities. The food was AMAZING - the chefs are worth their weight in gold. The teachers in the course are excellent and very knowledgable. And the school location is fantastic, in a quiet part of town surrounded by mountains, trees and gardens.

"Exceeded Expectations "

Wow. I don’t even know where to begin with this. I absolutely loved my time at RYTTC (so much so that I stayed in Rishikesh an extra week, and still hung out around school). My room was great, the food was absolutely delicious and the guys in the kitchen work so so hard to provide the best dishes. The teachers were nothing short of amazing. Our practical teachers Rohit and Sonu are so insanely knowledgeable, talented and are good with reading the energy of the class. Sandeep, Sanjeev, Ankit, and Gopal helped us out a lot, whether it was needing to go to the doctor, having to run into town or simply having to get money changed. They were always there to help, and extremely patient. I can’t thank you guys enough for such an amazing month, and i couldn’t be happier with my classes and classmates. Already looking forward to coming back! Thanks for everything ♥️♥️

"A review of the YTTC "

I am very happy with the course overall. The staff was amazing and I found a great sense of connection. At the beginning there were some doubts on my side for my decision to go to India and complete this course. After the first few days this doubt faded away and I started enjoying the process. I was very happy for the quality of the teachings involved, especially in regarding the asana practices. The teachers put great emphasis on doing the postures correct and therefore maximizing the therapeutic value as well as minimizing the risk of injury. In addition I learned many applicable and very useful techniques that are applicable in day to day life, that are very valuable. Also the holistic approach impressed me. I learned to listen to my body at a deeper level and this allowed me to bring forth the best of me. After this month I can surely say I feel much better overall and am happy to have taken part. I felt loved and accepted and made great connections in the process. I was given the opportunity to test my limits in a safe environment were I got to experience where my limits are. Before coming to this course I have already implemented several habits that are improving my life such as meditation and healthy eating. One things that I kept putting of was waking up on time. During this month this new practice has become part of my being and I am committed to continuing a regular sleep schedule in my personal life. The structures and routines were very helpful to me. Namaste :)

"A truly life changing month"

This was truly a life changing month for me and exactly what I needed to experience at this point in my life. All staff members were outstanding and went above and beyond to make us feel at home and took us in as family. They were quick to resolve issues and I always felt like they genuinely cared about making our stay as comfortable as possible. The instructors were excellent, the food was above and beyond and the classes were filled with knowledge about yoga as a way of life, not just a physical practice.

Go in with no expectations and an open mind and heart and it will be impossible to be dissapointed. Most of all, embrace the whole experience with positivity and love your classmates for the special journey they are on alongside you. Thank you Rishikesh and RYTTC, you will live in me forever. Xoxo

"Beyond grateful for this experience with this program"

Let’s get real, this place is about the energy of the people. The group I was in had a huge impact on the experience. The staff were excellent in setting the tone for what I found to be an incredibly humbling and beautiful month. There was such a family vibe here I never felt like I needed anything more. If you’re looking for a perfect comfortable experience then maybe don’t go to India. If you’re looking for an authentic and sometimes challenging for the western perspective experience, look no further. You will not regret a minute of this if you come into it with an open mind and heart.

"The best experience ever"

there is no better place in all of Rishikesh (or the world) for learning yoga and the incredible experiences than RYTTC. The energy of the ashram feels immediately like home and all of the staff (i can't even call them staff but rather friends and family) are extremely supportive and kind and hilarious and you are in the best hands from day 1. They meet all of your accommodations with a smile and genuine heart. The ashtanga and hatha instructors are incredibly well versed in their subjects and i have learned so much from them. There is nothing I can complain about RYTTC. Come to Rishikesh with an open mind and heart and you will have an experience of a lifetime.

"Beautiful experience"

The school is located in a very beautiful and peaceful area. Food was amazing (might be a bit spicy for some).

Teachers are so passionate about what they do, and always very positive.

Even if I don't end up as a yoga teacher then this course definitely gave me some needed strenght for life (mental and physical). Definitely would recommend this course!

I wish I was there for much longer time, I stayed for 7 days only and I have had an unforgettable memorable experience. I am super amazed and impressed by the way the school has been founded with so much love and passion from the housekeeper to the Chef until the Director including all teachers. So knowledgeable teachers!! I will do it again and again, God Blessed this school and the team and the family there . I am going back soon.

"Overall a Wonderful Experience"

I honestly did not know what to expect when I signed up for this yoga teacher training, but I was pleasantly surprised and would definitely recommend the school to anyone who is looking for a month of immersing themselves in yoga, and learning more about themselves. I liked pretty much everything about the school. They were very accommodating and responsive to all our needs, from Sandip, Sanjeev, Rani, to Ajay and everyone else; they all made sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible.Thank you so much for working hard to create a positive environment and helping in making sure that we could focus on our learning. The food was amazing! The schedule was intense (but in the best way possible)! I learnt so much, and my life back home is that much better for it. Thank you so much RishikeshYTTC! I am forever grateful for all of you and the friendships that were built in that one month. Love Carol

"Wonderful experience"

It's hard to put in words, because you simply need to experience it yourself. Everything is very different here. People are so nice and friendly, relaxed, no rush, no stres, the whole town is in zen, even the dogs are in zen, so calm, so well behaved...This place is like meca for people with good intentions, who came here to find some inner peace, to connect their minds, bodies and souls, to recharge and just be present in this moment. I know it may sound utopian, but the energy here truly is incredible. The athmosphere is so purifing for the soul, I felt it on my first day..and it stayed with me until my last day. There is something about this place that can open your mind in a way you have never imagined.. the school, the people who work here, the teachers, the classes...I have learnt so much, not just about yoga, but also about myself and everything that truly matters in life. It exceeded all my expectations.

"Amazing experience"

It was a beautiful experience and I will never forget the kind hearted, genuine people there; I'm pretty sure me and my boyfriend are gonna go back.The school is very well organized, the teaching plan was intensive and I've learned a lot, I definitely deepened my knowledge on yoga philosophy,pranayama,got very detailed instructions on yoga asanas and progressions, lot about injury prevention, dealing with injuries,yoga therapy and so much more.The teachers were excellent; amazing teaching methods and awesome atmosphere on classes. The Staff (I don't like calling them staff ,rather brothers and sisters) were just the most beautiful souls ;they helped us so much when my boyfriend got sick (appendix issue). They spent the whole night and day in a hospital with us talking to doctors, walking around the whole building to get the test results and arrange everything as quick as possibile. We are so thankful for that and everything else we didn't expect to get help with. We loved our room with a balcony,huge windows and a nice view. The surrounding was beautiful and quiet,close enough to make a walk downtown for a coffee when we had a break between classes. We also totally loved the food at school; it was so yummy everything was based on fresh veggies.Also the Christmas dinner was so beautiful,we're so thankful for that. I definitely recommend Rishikesh and this school to everyone, you'll be in good hands and you will learn a lot.

"Amazing experience "

I had the most amazing experience at Rishikesh YTTC. The teachers really knew there stuff and made lessons exciting and interesting. The school and team are such genuine kind people - they were so accommodating and really went out their way to make us feel comfortable and make sure all our needs were met and even threw a birthday party for one of the students, set up a movie night for some of the students, have a big Christmas Eve celebration. They really went all out. I’m not sure what other places were like but I was told the accommodation was excellent for the area. It was a little cold but it’s the middle of winter so it’a expected but I was comfortable and it was always clean. The food was AMAZING!!! Absolutely delicious and probably one of the highlights of my trip. I went there to deepen my practice and learn about yoga and the philosophy behind it and I learnt so much more! I highly recommend the experience and the training centre itself :)

"200 hour teacher training"

I enjoyed the one month experience with Rishikesh YTTC family! The staff was very attentive to all student needs during our stay and were always friendly and approachable. The teacher training is perfect for students who come with not much knowledge on yoga philosophy, anatomy, ashtanga and hatha yoga and mantra chanting. I learned so much in the course! Completing the course has provided me with a stronger foundation for my personal practice and provided me with tools I can use as a teacher.

The food was amazing and the chefs were so nice to us! The Sunday optional activities were also fun :)

"This is your place!"

The Rishikesh Yoga Teacher Training Center is a place of beauty, determination, support and transformation. The teachers are talented, detailed, patient and incredibly encouraging. The staff is the same- people that care about each student and do their best to provide a safe, comfortable and enjoyable environment to experience yoga training. I enjoyed all of my classes (yes, it was still difficult to get up so early everyday!) and without teachers that made learning and practicing enjoyable- I could not have sustained such an intense schedule. This is a magical place!!

"The BEST yoga teacher training program in RISHIKESH <3 "

My experience was amazing. I had no expectation of what my time would be like there but it was so much more than I could have imagined. There was so much love. From the teachers, the staff, all the other students. I felt so comfortable there. You really could feel the love in the air because of how genuine and authentic everyone was. Rishikesh itself is such a magical place. Also, the food was amazing. I had spoken to a few others who had been in the class prior to the one I was in and they said their food was so bland and what not. But ours was the exact opposite. They prepared so many delicious dishes with so many different flavors and you could truly feel the love in the food. We had different celebrations with chefs for no reason sometimes. It was so special. I plan to go back to Rishikesh YTTC for my 300 hour course sometime next year. Thank you Rishikesh Family <3

All the people involved with the course were on hand at any time to lend advice, leadership or human understanding. They really go the extra mile. The whole setup of the Ashram was perfect as it was close enough to town but away from the noise of the traffic. It is situated up a hill and close to nature. The place has a real good energy. The content from the teachers was fruitful and very easy to digest. The pace of teaching was good and allowed for good self practice time. Thanks for everything Rishikesh Yoga teacher training. Will be back for sure

I enjoyed myself during the month we spent at RYTTC. Made some amazing friends and learned a lot. The food was amazing, the chef couldn’t have done more for us. I wish him all the best for him and his new family. Adianna Ji was fantastic! Mohit Ji’s Lessons were brilliant, really captivating. Especially enjoyed the mantra chanting with Pinky Ji. We were there during Diwali and we celebrated with firecrackers and fireworks. Ankit Ji organised lots of activities for us during our stay :)

My experience at RYTTC was positively wonderful. The location for my group had an amazing view of the Ganges and the city. It was a quiet and peaceful escape that allowed us to focus on our classes away from the hectic city. The food was always healthy, delicious and ready for us to eat when we finished. I truly enjoyed all of our classes. I appreciate the patience and wisdom every teacher brought to the course.

Our location was separate from the main school, but the staff was always available to help us with any issues. A special big thank you to Gopal for always being there! He worked extra hard to solve our problems and keep us happy. We love him! I am so happy I chose RYTTC to complete my 200-hour teacher training. I highly recommend for anyone looking to begin their yoga journey!

"Good vibes, love & new family! Best month in Rishikesh ❤️"

I got there trying not to expect too much, but I got so much value out of this month, I feel super blessed and happy with my choice of this particular school. Teachers are amazing, each of them has a lot of knowledge in their fields and it's been an absolute pleasure going to class everyday. Trough the intense program, going trough some demanding and "interesting" emo days here and there:) trying to keep up with everything, we were always treated with nothing but love from everyone in the school. Location is perfect! Short walk from town, just far enough to be surrounded by spectacular nature & close to waterfalls. Not sure why ppl complain about the food, I loved every single meal & found it very well balanced and mostly by ayurvedic principles. Just thinking about it, ahh.. miss it so much!!! :) All the staff is absolutely wonderful, they always went an extra step in accommodating us and helping us if we needed anything. Rani is a ray of sunshine, haha.. only one among many staff members. My gratitude is beyond words. Thank you so much once again.. I will be back soon! Love and light & bless you all! 🙏

Pefect location, 10 min walk from the city center with great views of the ganges. Both teams of administration and hosts took great care of us around the clock. Teachers did a great job during classes, my practice and knowledge have improved drastically and I' grateful for their wisdom and patients. I met a group of beautiful people and had the time of my life, Rishikesh feels like a second home!

"One of the best experience of my life! "

The whole team works so hard and so well, with a level of professionalism and kindness that it makes this experience more than unique, unforgettable!! Strong dedication, passion, deep knowledge, true love drive them all and gave us the best way to become yoga teacher but also to spend a very enjoyable time together. Special thought for Rani who was a daily sunshine! ;) Each single one brings attention, care and is always available but also flexible which is important. Thanks to all of that we had this feeling (and it remains today), to be naturally part of a family. It looks that it was a very precious aspect that supported and empowered each one to go through his personal and group journey to become yoga teacher. I couldn't expect a group experience like the one we had! If we add the quality of teaching and knowledge, I just feel grateful but also ready for what's next: a huge thanks again because that's a life change.

Moreover, this place is probably one of the best in Rishikesh to learn yoga because it's quiet, surrounded by nature, with incredible views and sunrise (+ rooftop and garden to practice). This is not far at all from the city center which is convenient too.

Staying one month at ryttc was definitely unforgettable great experience! Rishikesh is really magical place. Our yoga school was located cca 10 mins walking from the city center, it is really peaceful place with beautiful view of mountains (breakfast with view of sunrise was my favorite)! All served food was really delicious, everything vegetarian and nutrient. Thanks to great teachers, especially yogi Mohit, I learned a lot about basics and philosophy of yoga and also Hatha and Ashtanga classes were exceptional! Teachers are really friendly and knowledgeable. The staff, Sandeep ji, Gopal ji and all the team are really nice and caring, always trying to create positive atmosphere and make us happy. For me it was a transformational month, an opportunity to grow professionally and personally. I definitely want to keep this healthy routine and keep growing. Thank you for planting this seed within me and I promise to spread it all around! Love and blessings!

"Magical "

My experience at Rishikesh YTTC exceeded all my expectation, from accommodation, food, teachers, professionalism and vibes. I arrived ready to expand my knowledge of yoga, to deepen my practice... but could not have imagined how much more I would receive throughout my time at the school. The chef surprised us all with delicious cuisine day in and day out, my room was clean, air conditioned with phenomenal views. Everyone was kind, supportive, happy and loving. The staff really go above and beyond to make your time very special, especially Ankit, his light shines so bright you will you will never feel lost when he is around. 21 of us arrived strangers and left a worldwide family with a beautiful home in Rishikesh. Gift yourself an encounter with Rishikesh YTTC you will not regret it, please remember to show up with and open mind and heart to receive all these wonderful gifts. Thank you for inspiring me and allowing me to learn from you Rishikesh YTTC. I will miss you all dearly and cannot wait to meet again. Namaste

"WHAT AN EXPERIENCE !! <3 "

I honestly loved every single moment of my stay in India, and I was super emotional and sad when leaving. It has been one of the most amazing things I have ever done for myself! All practical classes were amazing, both the Hatha and Ashtanga teacher were great and very professional, and I have learned so much in this 1 months practice with them. The staff were in general super positive and they all created an magical atmosphere. The Philosophy classes were interesting and the Adjustment and alignment classes were full of useful information.

Lunch and dinner were great, could be a little bit more spicy, but otherwise great.

What made my trip amazing, were all the amazing people I met there. RYTTC created such a nice and warm atmosphere, and I went home from there with 40 new best friends, who I am definitely all going to see again at some point. I feel like I have learned a lot about yoga and about myself and I am ready to spread my love for yoga and life with all my friends, family and students at home in Denmark.

THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL MONTH <3

The teaching and learning experience was awesome. The teachers tried their supreme best to motivate and create a positive environment for all. The staffs assisted the students in every way possible especially people like Gopal Ji, Rani Ji and Sandeep Ji. The food provided was Satvic and healthy in nature, preparing the body for a true yogic adventure. I love this school and the people who give it it's true meaning.

I really enjoyed my time here. I loved immersing myself into a different culture. The yoga classes we challenging. They took everything I thought I knew about yoga, threw it out the window, and taught me from the ground up. I’ve learned so much about yoga and myself and I’ve also gained a new level of strength within myself. The staff was so friendly (family like) and accommodating. Even when I got food poisoning (not from the school) they made sure I got to the doctor and made sure I was fed and checked on me frequently. I made so many personal connections with other students. I’d definitely recommend this course. It’s worth the price on the experience alone.

"a time of happiness"

To say I enjoyed my time at RYTTC would be an understatement. Those 4 weeks flew by like nothing and I was the happiest being during my time there. The staff greeted us with outstretched arms, open hearts and the biggest smiles. Whatever problem you have they'd do anything to help you and beyond. Besides that it was very enjoyable to spend time with them and learn some hindi or garhwali. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and radiate a calm and wise happiness. I don't know how to transfer my experience into words...I loved everything! The people the school, Rishikesh, the food, the music, the dancing...go there and meet my family!

"Location was superb!"

I think the location of this yoga school is what sets it apart from the many other simple yoga training centers in Rishikesh. I loved being able to look out at the greenery in each of the yoga studios and really enjoyed the panoramic rooftop views. Staff was very accommodating and life was good here at RishikeshYTTC!

"Brilliant experience ! Learnt a lot !!"

Teachers were dedicated to the subject, knowledgeable, and passionate about teaching.

Sonu ji (Hatha ) , Ankit ji (Ashtanga ) and Mohit ji (Philosophy) all were a source of inspiration and encouraged us to push the boundaries. Praful ji(Anatomy), Chitrangana ji (pranayama and Meditation) , Dhirender ji and Sachin ji (methodology) instilled the confidence for teaching. The entire support team Gopal ji, Rani , Ankit ji, Sandeepji and kitchen staff were always available to resolve any queries. The warmth and love made us feel like home in Rishikesh. Ever grateful for a memorable time, and great learning atmosphere!

"A beautiful profound journey"

My month of September 2018 was amazing because of RYTTC, seriously I don't think I've said enough thanks to them, and I truly feel now I have a family in India. The staff was super helpful and warm, always try their best to provide whatever we needed. The accommodation wasn't the best in our western standards of course but please think about how Indian locals living condition, I'd say the school already was trying their best as they could! I appreciated it and have no complaints. I loved ALL our teachers, they were somewhat eye-opener to me, I've learned so much from them, not just yoga asanas but as a being. Food throughout the whole month was amazing, I loved the fact of the owner Sandeep is a professional chef, he really knows what kind of healthy balance yogi food we supposed to have, and I also loved that once in a while he spoiled us with his special dinner treats. It was my first time in India, I felt surprisingly comfortable, and because of them, I will be returning to India with my big shiny smile to my family of Rishikesh.

What I liked most about my time at RYTTC was the people. The staff, the teachers, the people I did the training with were all great. Nothing was ever too much trouble, they were all happy to help with anything and made a warm loving environment to be in.

The classes were great, I learnt so much in such a short time.

Everything was amazing, all of the staff really treat you like family and it was so difficult to leave in the end! The yoga teaching was brilliant, traditional and was really in depth. They even allowed me to stay for the first few days of the september course and help out in some of the classes which was a great experience! Can not recommend enough the RYTTC family for a traditional, balanced and incredible rishikesh yoga experience.

Amazing mountain views. Quiet area. I really liked the group activities on the weekends. It attracted people from all over the world and so it was a very mixed and interested group, that merged in one soul.

I liked the everyday challenges, detailed teachings and open hearted people.

"A new home where magic happens "

At RYTTC you don’t just go and do yoga and study.

Here you will find a new family. A place where you feel home and secure, loved and guided.

A place where yoga stops being something that you do, but becomes something that you are.

The teachers, the staff, the food, simply everything is more than amazing!

Choosing To come here was one of the best decisions in my life and I am more than grateful for everything that I experienced!

The time at RYTTC will always have a very special place in my heart and I can’t wait to come back!

If you want to experience pure yoga, have the time of your life, a lot of fun and find peace and love within you,

Come here and let the magic happen to you as well!

There is something magic about that place, you become a part of them and you become family, there is quality in the teaching and though is an intensive course you will learn more than you are aware of. This is the place you want to experience your journey of yoga. They will teach you the real yoga! The transformation.

"No better place to learn Hatha and Ashtanga"

From the moment I arrived I was made to feel at home and I really did. Sanjeev, Sandeep and their team went above and beyond to make everyone comfortable and to make sure no one got sick.

The quality of the food was impeccable and the flavours were absolutely incredible; enough to make this meat eater vegetarian!

The class schedule was definitely intense but very rewarding and nothing that couldn’t be done. There was support for every step of the journey and it was very clear that the instructors were there out of a love and passion for teaching and it showed it all the ways were learned. I will be going back to do more hours when the courses become available, I made a family in my month with YTTC and I wouldn’t dream of training anywhere else.

"Its an experience surely not to be missed @RYTTC!!"

I did the 200 hrs, it was immersive, intense, educational, and fun. When i left for this experience i had no idea it was going to have this much of a positive impact on me i wish id booked the 300 hour course. Facilities are by no means five star (and you wouldnt exoect them to be)but its a lot better than one can expect in Rishikesh. If you're thinking about going, go for it you won't regret it ! Big thanks to everyone at ryttc!

"Wonderful! "

Namaste,I can't even express how grateful I am to the whole team (staff and teachers) of Rishikesh YTTC. I have spend four beautiful weeks, learning & growing in my yoga journey and couldn't have asked for a better place to practice yoga and a yogic lifestyle.The yoga school has a great location, you are in walking distance to all happenings in Rishikesh yet the school is located in a quiet area, perfect if you are seeking a more tranquil place. My accommodation, especially the view onto the green from the balcony, was one of my highlights.I have enjoyed the food & could see the effort the team would put into keeping our diet sattvic, balanced and nutritious during the course.

Big thanks to all the teachers who have been sharing their knowledge and experience, you can truly tell that they are all very knowledgeable and passionate in their field. Special mention to Sonu Ji, who has inspired me so much with his great energy and Hatha teachings.The teachers all were very approachable and would take their time to help with any small yoga related questions.

All staff would always find time and go above & beyond to help further. Having had other experiences with other teacher trainings in India and Europe, Rishishesh YTTC really stands out because of all the amazing souls that work at the school. I felt like being part of a bigger family & must say they do a great job by being approachable & keen on suggestions on what could be added and improved to enhance your yoga experience.

"Excellent value for money "

I found this course perfect. I loved doing the course and everything I learnt, the course I thought was cheap in comparison to what is out there - when being in Rishikesh YTTC it tripled my expectation, the people from kitchen staff, cleaners, teachers, owners were so friendly and welcoming. On a daily basis, they all had time for your questions or just to listen to you, they even contacted me once I left to check I got home safely. Provided was vegetarian food which worked well for me and there was more then enough every day. Location was also perfect as we was just a small walk away from the shops and right next to a cafe but still surrounded by beautiful wildlife and greenery. The best part for me was the teachers, everyone of them were amazing! If you are pationate about astanga like I am, Ankit an was unbelievably motivating teacher and a very knowledgeable, very strict and made me want to learn more in every class. The same with Hatha - Sonu, Teaching and Alignment - Sachin and Dhirendra :)

Each teacher would take time on a daily basis to help me understand things over and watch if I had a question which for me was so important and they all did a fantastic job. They were also so friendly they made classes fun so you could look forward to each one and put so much energy into the classes. We was a large group and daily they would stay after class 10mins-1 hour helping.

I'd really recommend this course but remember you're in India and shouldn't have 5 star expectations.

"ПУТЕШЕСТВИЯ В РИШИКЕШ."

Первоначально надо сказать о красоте окружающей природы в среде которой мы находились целый месяц. Сезон дождей искупал нас как следует , не только мыл улицы и деревья , а смывал пыль с наших глаз и умов. Насколько условия комфортабельны? Это уже зависит от нас самих к чему мы готовы и как мы выходим из создавшихся положений. Мне понравилось все: как я отнеслась ко всему, интересная программа преподавания отличалась от прежних курсов, задорный . веселый , молодой, активный преподавательский состав. Отзывчивый персонал. Кухня трудилась день и ночь, несмотря на уставший вид лицо всегда в радости. Книжки вручили сразу, куда можно было заглянуть и прочесть ну худо бедно по картинкам разобраться))). О, нельзя не сказать о друзьях наших меньших обезьянках у кого свистнули что, у кого испачкали, а мне позировали))) на фото. Профессиональный подход организаторов чувствовался терпение, мудрость. Инструкторы отвечали на вопросы и после занятий, и внимательно относились к каждому. Мне понравился и тренинг и программа и учительский состав и административный персонал. Спасибо Всем и группе с которой я проходила тренинг. Все мы разные внешне, но ОДИНАКОВЫЕ внутри)))) Люблю всех! Счастья ВАМ кто создал кто организовал кто провел и преподавал и те кто это читает)))))

ПРИМЕЧАНИЕ: приехала отупевшая))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) дождь видимо смыл все)))))))) отдохнула.

"Best Month Ever"

This was the most beautiful and memorable month of my life, thanks to the wonderful teachers of this retreat. I learned SO much about yoga, life, and myself. The classes are excellent, the teachers are wonderful, the staff so friendly, the food delicious, the location beautiful and peaceful. Good range of students from all over the world, all ages and levels. Lots of beginners who found it challenging but not too hard. I had a ton of yoga experience, but still found it helpful to go back to the basics and then by the end learning new and difficult postures. Pick this retreat and you will not regret it!

I loved everything about my experience in YTTC Rishikesh. The staff and teachers were amazing friendly and helpful making me feel completely like family from the first moment. Also They are talented, full of love and knowledges. We learnt tons of things about Hatha Ashtanga Pranayama Anatomy Adjustment and Yoga philosophy.

I'm so blessing to be taught by them, and grateful to have met amazing people from all around the world.

I extremely recommend this place to take the 200 hours yoga teacher training course. Thank you for everything. You guys will always stay in my heart.❤️

The ashtanga class had an amazing and inspiring instructor. Everyone who works for this company made me feel like family. Whatever I needed throughout the course I was attended to immediately. The facility was pretty clean for India.

The course was excellent, the instructors very informative, fun and friendly. We learnt so much about adjustments, having the correct alignments, the body, meditation and breathing techniques, the philosophy of yoga, hatha and ashtanga yoga and so much more! It is amazing value for money and I loved how you also learnt a lot about the culture and their traditions too. The accomodation was good and the location was fantastic, only a short walk to the nearest town. The opening and closing ceremonies were great fun and I enjoyed it all a lot. I will miss my time there.

"Enjoy yourself wherever you are!"

I think the most important thing for me is the teachers and each of them has different nice qualities even they were too young, i have learnt so many things during training course. My favourite teacher was the Hatha Yoga Teacher Sonu because he always has a positive support whenever or whatever i asked him, he helped me to understand not only the intellegence of yoga asanas but also enjoying for each step of my yoga journey. I will always remember his nice smile and appreciate his big knowledge. Philosophy teacher Mohit always took care of my endless seeker questions and helped me to find out another new version of 'Bhagavat Gita' which changes my life after each reading and opens new dimension on my yoga journey:) I think he had a great quality of teaching method that makes you feel grounded and also his teaching method rises you to higher state of consciousness if you really focused on his lessons and interested in seven keys to awakening. Dhirendra taught me to understand how to help each kind of different people who has different body shapes, for me it was a nightmare to adjust one person to a rigth angle and shape but now i realise how much he supported us during classes. He always makes me smile because he reminds me one Avatar Air Bender character from an animation:), he has so pure energy and strong muladharara chakra and that helped me to get over my fears during yoga teacher trainig exam. Gopal, thank you for taking me to magical temple. Namaste and thankful..

I went to India with no expectations whatsoever as I had never been to Asia before. I couldn't imagine what waited for me there. The staff, the people, everything.. was truly unimaginable. They took such good care of us 100% of the time, any question, or concern was answered with care. Sanjeev, Sandeep, Ankit, Gopal, Narinder, AJ are just a few of the wonderful people who not only made sure we were happy and healthy but became someone I can call a friend. Thank you for all your hard work! You are incredible:)

I think the biggest asset of Rishikesh YTTC is the teachers and staff! Each one is different but they are all Amazing and competent!! The students were a mixture of beginners, intermediate-level and experienced yogis and over-all it worked out great for everyone! The management team are very welcoming, helpful and they actively listened to us. The accommodation was good: a few electricity outages here and there but it's part of the experience. Expect to see a lot of adorable monkeys running around and checking you out when you're in class:) The food was vegetarian, very delicious and not hot. The school put in a lot of efforts to introduce variety (and deserts!) into our meals - which was awesome!

In short, if I were to do the 200h again, I'd still chose the same school :).

Jorden Garnaut

from Indonesia, August 2018

I came to the training with almost zero yoga experience and am leaving with the confidence to teach a class. Every single staff member in the ashram is passionate about what they do, from the teachers to the kitchen staff. There is not a moment you don’t feel cared about or tended to throughout the month. The course is rich and you will be constantly learning, but it will always be fun because everyone here loves what they do and the positive atmosphere creates a space where the learning is enjoyable. I learn more than poses, I learnt a new perspective and way of thinking from every new friend I met here. I have a new family now.

"Home Away from Home"

Rishikesh YTTC is truly home away from home. These wonderful people go to the moon and back for you. They ensure that your happiness is the #1 thing that comes first and will do everything to ensure that. I've been with a handful of different volunteer, training and internship programs abroad in Europe and Asia and have never experience such a blissfully beautiful group of humans in my life. They're truly a family. We never got tired of the food, actitivites are planned for you on Sundays, the yoga was accomedating to every level, the teachers were the most refined/brilliant/happy mentors to us, the staff became family and the accomendation was comfortable. Please don't hesitate to start your yogic journey with them, there's a reason why they're #1 and you can tell it's all from the heart the second you come to Rishikesh.

Rachel Calabrese

"Felt fully embraced and cared for my entire time there!"

The standout from my experience in Rishikesh YTTC has to be the people. The staff, instructors, and fellow students were all incredible and hold a special place in my heart. I was fully supported during my time there and learned so much over the course of one month. The staff was so humble and willing to help with any and everything and the instructors were always willing to answer questions. I was able to grow in my yoga practice and feel comfortable leading a class, although I definitely think to be confident in instructing a tremendous amount of self-discipline and self-practice is required. The site is envelopes by the Himalayan mountains—an incredible feeling to recognize this throughout the day. It was so peaceful falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of nature. It’s monsoon season in July but I loved the rain there and found it calming, plus it cooked the temp down. The school is a close walk to town making it easy to purchase snacks, gifts, necessities, or go out for a meal or shake. I looked at the whole spiritual aspect and yoga philosophy with a “take what you need” mindset which allowed me to fully embrace foreign concepts during my time there yet think critically about what I would incorporate into my life/work back home. I took away more than a yoga teacher certificate, I took strength, a new found appreciation for yoga as a discipline, and lasting memories and friendships.

"I fell in love with Rishikesh "

The teachers are exceptional, their passion, love and ethusiasm shines through and it was a joy to attend classes. In particular Philosophy, Hatha and Alignment teachers went the extra mile in their teaching, making themselves accessible and open to helping in any way. The staff are incredible, Sandeep, Gopal, Ankit and the team were extremely caring and thoughtful and really made us all feel like family. The food was great, it got better every week, so much love went into every meal. I was very grateful for the many gluten free alternatives they organised for me. The accomodation is simple but it's a beautiful location, away from the hustle and bustle of the markets. The local organic shop had all the supplies we needed to stay happy and healthy. It was a transformational month, an opportunity to work on self love and growth and physically build a healthy routine. I would highly recommend this training to inspired yogis who want to get certified authentically and to anyone that needs a safe and special place to get to know themselves a little better.

Thank you so much for helping me find my inner light.

Teachers are great and knowledgeable. Big thumb up to the philosophy teacher, who made such « heavy theory » so interesting! Classes were super, perfect balance between theory and practice. I feel like I’ve learned a lot.

Food very delicious. The kitchen staff works really hard to keep our belly happy.

Staff is friendly and very accessible. Whatever we need they have it for us.

Rooms are comfy, clean and so close to school it’s perfect.

Highly recommend this place to anyone. Month went by too fast, would start again anytime!

"Feels the best choice "

The first thing it matters on a school/college is the teachers. In this case they are all incredible intelligent, approachable and so positive! The energy that they give you in every single class, how they can change your perspective about life through their speeches is beautiful. The yoga teachers are strong, knowing your limits and trying to encourage you to keep up.

The entire staff, the people who work in the office, the kitchen staff or any member who will see during your staying, are smiley, kind and helpful with anything you need. Smile to them and they will smile back, be nice with them and they will be nice to you.

Regarding the food which plays an important role on a yogi's life i have to say that it was tasty with variety of choices,. with extra surprises sometimes but always the choice of a healthy and delicious meal.

The area that the facilities are, allows you to see basically mountains, hills, trees and animals. The whole place belongs to a quite neighbourhood away from main roads. Giving you the opportunity to meditate with nature's sounds. The view from the yoga rooms, or the actual bedrooms is out of mind. Places with windows all over, helping you to stay connected with the nature every single moment.

Sundays are free days. The school though organise something every of it. Examples are rafting in the river, visit temples, waterfalls or ceremonies around city which gives you the chance to meet Indian culture much better.

What an amazing course. The accommodations were very nice, clean and comfortable. The food was outstanding, every meal was restaurant quality. We were served a beautiful assortment of dishes each and meal, the staff even took special requests! Teachers are well informed and very precise. Quality and safe adjustments helped me progress so far in such a short month. I had only done yoga a handful of times before coming and now feel confident in my understanding of the different asanas we learned. Finally the energy at the school is vibrant and inspiring, the management truly cares about your experience and as women we always felt safe and cared for.

I liked that the teachers were so passionate and inspiring !

I really liked Sonu, the Hatta teacher, who is a bubble of joy and very trustful. The philosophy teacher is amazing too, the anatomy teacher is funny and so interesting. They were all so good !!!

I liked the staff and everything they were doing for us all the time, such nice people, we were spoiled ! Sandeep thank you for everything !!

I liked the timetable of the classes, we had time to rest during the day which was very appreciated as we were waking up early.

I liked the food, it was good everyday and even though the flavors were similar, it is yogic good and part of the experience. They also cooked special meals for us and the was nice !!!

Show up with and open mind, fit body and positive attitude and your life will never be the same!

"Love, peace, and honesty "

The location of the school is a good distance from all the chaos in the city. My favorite quote from being at the school "yoga is a work in not out". I loved the emphasis on teaching us that our students are blind and our flexibility does not matter. Sonu (hatha teacher), Mohit (philosophy teacher), and dhirendra (teaching methodology teacher) were my favorite teachers. Sonu always came to class with a smile and a positive aura. He's classes were very structured and informative. Mohit was very knowledgeable and used his personal experiences to explain concepts and techniques. Dhirendra taught us the importance of helping all students in the classroom. The support staff was amazing. Ronu was so awesome to be around. Ankit was very responsive and tried to help as much as he could. Gopal was awesome too. I wish I could list everyone here but it would be too much to write.

"Excellent experience"

The teachers were very knowledgeable and approachable- always willing to clarify if necessary. The Hatha teacher (Sonu) was amazing! Great structure to his classes. I was very well taken care of by the entire team, shout out to Sandeep, Ankit and Sonu for being incredibly hospitable! I felt welcome and supported during my stay. The teacher training is a fantastic building block; They set an excellent foundation for those looking to strengthen their practice as well. I didn't know what to expect going into it, but I left feeling that I had recieved everything I needed and more... Please keep in mind that this IS a 30 day course. So set your expectations accordingly- you're not going to leave being a yoga master... but like they say, the focus here is not what you can do, but how you teach. Keep an open mind to the constructive criticism of the teachers and students around you and you will get the most from this experience. Keep a positive outlook. Things aren't 100% perfect all the time, that's life. If you want the full culture shock, embrace that things will be different than at home. Different plumbing, different weather, different traffic.... just commit. It was incredibly rewarding in so many ways, and I look forward to coming back next summer for the 300 hour training.

"Great place to learn yoga while feeling at home"

The best thing about RYTTC are the people! All the staff is so kind and helpful I am still touched.

The location is excellent and the school is beautiful, surrounded by mountains (no street noise) but still close enough to the main road so you can walk around and by things easily. There are different buildings you get alocated to, I stayed at Nishant Garden itself and really enjoyed my room.

The food is very well prepared and delicious!

The teachers are very good and knowledgeable, with great experience, also very accessible and responsible.

The Sunday activities are fun and worth it to go!

In general, you will be treated like family and they will take care of you.

"staff with alot of knowledge"

The careing environment, teachers with alot of knowledge.

Pranayama exersices was well explained and i could see the development in My own practice.

Ashtanga yoga with One Day doing series and the next get deep in to alignments and how to performe One or a few poses was a great way of learning.

Hatha teacher was verry Good at explaining alignments and adjustments.

Philosophy classes was intresting mostly because of how the teacher explained everything. Like heaven was reading a Book, or telling stories from someones life.

I came here to learn how to teach yoga and I learn a lot more than this! Teachers are qualified and passionate, staff always ready to help, they did a really good job, food was really good and healthy. In YTTC I felt like home, if you are thinking about doing a course this is the right place

The Yoga course was a nice experience, i have learned a lot, made friendships all around the world, but also in India. The teachers, and the whole YTTC staff became my Indian family, it is really good to stay in contact with them. If you make a 200 hours course, defenetly you will plan your next one. :) The surrounding, and also Rishikesh is amazing, full of colours, tastes, smells, voices, chaotic but so calm. The people are so nice,kind, happy, full of love, they trust each other. That is total different like in Europe. :) I m glad to made that decision and be a part of it.

"“Let yourself be open and life will be easier.”"

I came to Rishikesh YTTC with no yoga background and no expectations. The experience was, in a word, intense - and one which I would recommend wholeheartedly. It’s a humbling, holistically challenging endeavour that will transform you if you let it. Your boundaries will be expanded, you will be uncomfortable sometimes, and you will grow from it. You will get out of it what you put into it. And at the end of it, you’ll wish it wasn’t time to leave just yet.

The school is located in a peaceful area, a short walk from downtown Rishikesh and the Ganges river. The scenery is really beautiful, and the local fauna keep things interesting. Overall, the teachers were wonderful, dynamic, and very knowledgeable. The staff members were promptly available when issues arose. The director, Ankit, was especially helpful with everything from WiFi issues to Ayurvedic fever cures (and making sure we boarded the right bus out of Rishikesh - thanks to Sanjeev as well for that).

"Overall a positive experience"

The 200 hour teacher training course is an intense experience that left me changed for the positive. Undergoing this course in Rishikesh was an amazing opportunity and I would urge anyone considering it to go to Rishikesh to complete the training in the birth place of yoga.

Location - The school is set back from the main part of the city so it is quiet and peaceful.

Teachers - the majority of the teachers have a clear passion and depth of knowledge and are happy to accommodate any questions or requests. I learnt so much and relearnt things I thought I knew well but had learnt wrongly from many different yoga teachers back home.

Authentic experience - this is a chance to really live the yogi lifestyle for a month and learn as much as you can about yoga.

Syllabus - varied and extensive providing a good rounded view of Astanga and Hatha yoga as well as philosophy, pranayama and shatkarma aspects.

Opportunity to teach - lots of opportunities as well as providing feedback on the teaching of other students which you can also learn from.

"Work hard, play hard!"

In life, we get back what we put in. If you decide to dedicate yourself in this course, you will receive everything you need from it. Expect to work hard, starting early each morning. Time is a precious resource and it is not wasted here. There is a demanding schedule consisting of many long days packed with asana, meditations, lectures, and study. You will be challenged by an incredibly knowledgeable set of teachers pushing you to the limits of your body and your mind. Every subject has it's own instructor, and all of them are experts in their respective fields of study (M.D., PhD, and Masters of yoga/philosophy) providing their own diverse perspectives on yoga. Most importantly, I now have the qualification, knowledge, confidence and skillset to share yoga practice in my own classes. Thank you, Sanjeev, for orchestrating an all-star team of students, teachers, and staff.

"Best Place to Stay :)"

The atmosphere was incredible , I really loved it from the first second I arrived. The Rishikesh YTTC is close to the nature, which make it really special because when you need to attend classes all day long you really appreciate a calm environment, they also have a little garden to make Acro Yoga. The lesson where really good, I learned a lot and I really appreciate all the knowledge that I got. Furthermore, the whole Team is a bliss, it's just so enjoyable to be around them, they always have time for your concerns, if you are sick or just need some help they help you out and they SPREAD A LOT OF LOVE ! Mostly, I enjoyed our indian dance partys in the dining hall, by now I know more dance moves and I'm ready to attend the next indian wedding ! If you have the possibility take the time and do your teacher training in this ashram it was a awesome and unique time.

"We love Rishikesh (YTTC)!"

My stay at Rishikesh YTTC was amazing. Sanjeev, Julia, Gopal, Ankit, and all of our teachers were incredibly knowledgeable, fun to be around and learn from, and extraordinarily helpful during every part of the last month’s journey. Whether it was asana, meditation, pranayama or your personal life, the crew at RYTTC was there with an answer, or at least a new perspective.

The rooms are basic but very comfortable, and the food is similar- basic, but delicious. The location of the school could not be better- you’re about a 5-10 minute walk to town, but when you’re at the Ashram you can’t hear the bustle at all. It’s very peaceful.

The instruction was very good- I feel like I’ve learned so much in my time there. Ask lots of questions if you have specific things you’d like to know! The yogis all know their stuff so well.

I feel like this stay was the best thing in the world I could have done for myself, and I hope anyone reading this decides to give that gift to themselves.

Namaste!

Over all: every single moment in that course is so precious and valuable cause you keep learning and discovering lots and lots about your inner self.

Food was good, location is perfect and the teachers are special. From day one everything felt right, I knew I chosen the right school. The environment was the perfect place to grow and deepen your knowledge of yoga. The history of yoga and not the western yoga. The philosophy teacher was sooooo passionate. It was an amazing class. Hatha was good, more of a physical class where you can observe as a student, ashtanga was a constant stream of knowledge. Learned so much. Overall it was the most incredible and life changing months I won't ever forget.

"RYTTC"

Overall the experience was such an amazing one. There were a lot of hardships. Its not an easy journey. It was very cold but that made you thankful for the sunshine at midday. It was physically demanding but it helped you get mentally and physcially stronger. India is such a unique place and culture. It's not a teacher training in your home country. It's not super structured or luxurious. But the teachers are amazing.

We were so lucky to have had our Swami,Tilak. His knowledge and passion for pranayama and the yogis way of life was inspiring. Our wonderful anatomy teacher Dr Sumit was a real physiotherapist, and Rohjit our Ashtanga master was fun and seriously knowledgeable.

The friends I made and our adventures in Rishikesh is something I'll always feel grateful for. I was lucky to have such a mix of like minded and beautiful souls to take this journey with.

The school is set a short walk from town where there are the most amazing organic stores and cafes, filled with every foodstuff you could think of.

I developed and learned more about my own practice rather than teaching during this month long training, but it was a great learning experience.

Same like when you are born in a certain place, or in a certain family, the universe has it’s own way of letting you and the odds to choose your path. Being part of Rishikesh YTTC was an experience that will help shape my knowledge and future, was a step forward that I am grateful for.

I am thankful for the people I met, for the teachers kind enough to share a part of their experiences and knowledges, for the cold air of the Himalaya on the early morning classes, for the intense practice, for the tasty food, for the fact that living through this experience I can call myself a yoga teacher and that my journey has begun.

Thank you & best of luck

"Soul Journey in the Himalayas"

From the day I got to the retreat, to the day I left, one thing was very true, it always felt like home. The Yoga Family journey in itself is indescribable, but being in a beautiful setting at Nishant Garden, with amazing teachers, family like staff and all the activities included, is something everyone deserves to experience. The facilities are Nishant Garden were very clean and well maintained, along with amazing views of the sunrises and sunsets amidst the mountains.

Sanjeev and his family are very good at taking personal care of each of the students needs and the fresh food and meals prepared everyday leave you feeling satisfied.

The yoga classes and teachers are amazing designed for all age groups and fitness levels. Learning the yogi way through the blend of not just the asana practice, but regular pranayama, yoga philosophy, and understanding anatomy and postures better, helps you become a well rounded teacher through this course learning many styles, while forming your own.

I would highly recommend this retreat for anyone looking for a truly soul enriching experience.

"Awesome yoga school that beat all my expecations! ?"

I arrived 3 days into the course & was worried about what to expect. I was without internet the days leading up to the course & wasn't sure whether there would be anyone to pick me up. Big was my surprise when I walked out of the airport immediately into Julia’s embrace. She greeted me with flowers & big smile. It was the first of the many little things that everyone was so mindful of doing for us to truly make us feel welcome & well taken care off. There was lots of laughter & dancing but also all of us were motivated to work hard. The school is in a nice setting, away from the main road, but still super close to the centre. You learn to appreciate it when you start your day with meditation, Hatha Yoga & friendly monkeys that drop by. Sanjeev is a great yoga teacher. He is very detailed & keen to ensure that we all understand the postures & their benefits. In Ashtanga class, we had lots of opportunities to learn postures but also do lots of fun things, such acro yoga. I very much enjoyed the anatomy class, where we not only learnt about the body but also ways to make yoga practice more safe. Weekends were full of adventure - Sunset yoga on a mountain, rafting on the Ganges and waterfall. This is truly a place to reconnect with you inner self and feel at home away from home. It was an unforgettable experience, not only because of how much more confident about my yoga practice I have become, but most of all because of Sanjeev and his team of great souls. Highly recommend!

This training can't be overestimated, everything was just on top. Most important, organizers and all the stuff did everything to create not just friendly, but a family like atmosphere among everyone, and they really succeded in it!

The stuff was always there to support and help with ANY issue! Special BIG THANK to Sandeep ji! And also to Gopal ji, Sanjeev ji, Ajay ji, Ankit ji, Rani ji and every single person working there!

Also the teachers were just great. Very lively and opened, loving what they do, very sensitive and attentive to all our questions and needs.

In a very short time I gained a good deal of knowledge, inputs and inspiration for teaching and for my own practise.

And the food... It was just delicious! Will not be an exaggeration to say that I never ate so tasty and healthy in my whole life! And this despite the fact that it was fast completely vegan, just sometimes with some milk products like milk in masala tea or paneer cheese.

All in all, I don't regret a second to have chosen this place to do the training and I already want back... Thanks ever so much guys for your heartiness, generousity and for your great work!

the school is very close to the city, in a very quiet place, with green areas and fresh air.

"An unforgettable stay"

I will always keep these 4 weeks in Rishikesh and especially at the RYTTC in good memory. I am a yoga beginner and have learnt a lot about yoga during this time, both in terms of physical exercises and theory. I now have a good basis to continue practicing yoga. All teachers gave their best and could teach me more about yoga than I expected.

The school is very quietly and peacefully situated on a hill and the city is only a few minutes walk away. The room was simple and well-equipped and in line with my expectations. A hot shower was always available. I was very happy because the rooms are not heated and the nights in December get very cold.

The food was excellent and have increased my well-being in these 4 weeks noticeably. All teachers and staff were so cordial and attentive to us that it was hard for me to say goodbye. I would like to come back one day and can and will recommend the school without reservation.

Namaste, Christoph

The 200 hours yoga teaching course with the Semwal family was a fantastic experience that I will remember my whole life. Sanjeev, Sandeep & wonderful Rani where always there, helping, laughing & caring. There was nothing that they wouldn't help one with. I felt really comfortable from the first moment I got picked up at the airport and am really grateful for everything that has happened to me within those for weeks. Aspecially getting to know so much about the Indian culture which I did had not expected was an extra gift for me. Furthermore the classes and the teachers where really high qualitativ and I feel like I learned really a lot! Every teacher seemed to be really professional in his object and they always had so much more to say than time was... on top of this the food was adorable. No words for that. Rishikesh is a holy town which has a really special spirit. One is surrounded by mostly very friendly and happy people, stunning Ganga, Tempels and the mountains. Here you really have the opportunity to dive in to this culture and get to know the spirituality around and within yoga. I would always come for this experience again , thank you for everything ❤️🙏🏼

I am so grateful to have lived this experience with Rishikesh YTTC and with all the beautiful souls I met there. I enjoyed every single moment, the class, the meals, the activities, sharing amazing moments with everybody, the staff and all the students, walking in Rishikesh, meeting people and talking with them for hours. Much love, many smiles, many hugs, I found much more than a teacher training programm in here. Everybody do his best to help and to make us feel at home. Rishikesh is so magic. We can feel the energetic power of mountains all around, especially the powerfull connection with mother Ganga and the spirit of all the great yogis. If you are looking for a great human experience, go there. Thank you Sanjeev, Rani, Sandeep for this month, I will go back soon for sure ;-)

Las clases que más me gustaron y de las que más he aprendido han sido las de hatha, asthanga y filosofía, quizás por como los profesores nos motivaban y daban las clases, la energía y el buen royo que había. La comida, bueno... al principio increíble, picante y a pesar de ser comida vegetariana tenía muchísimo sabor... luego cambiaron de cocinero y la comida fue más repetitiva y con menos sabor. Pero en general bien.

El staff y sobretodo mis compañeros increíbles. Gopal Ji siempre atento a nuestras necesidades y con muchísima paciencia. La localización perfecta. Las clases de salsa por la noche y el rafting le pusieron el broche al curso. Las clases con Sanjeev (las de yoga) increíbles, aunque podrían a ver sido más amenudo.

"Enjoying and coming back with more energy"

I really enjoyed the whole experience of the 200h Teacher Training in Rishikesh. The RYTTC family welcomed us with open arms and hearts and created a comforting, joyful atmosphere and spoiled us with amazing food!

All teachers shared their profund and authentic knowledge and demonstrated not only being Yogis from the outside but embodying yogic life. I got inspired by every teacher with their own personalities and teachings :)

I am grateful for this inspiring months, happy about all the beautiful souls I met, hope to spread the bliss I collected and waiting to meet you all again!

Thank you for an uplifting experience and that I am confident and happy to really start my Yoga journey! :) I left with a beautiful smile in my face filled with more live energy and an amazing experience!

"An amazing experience with such beautiful souls"

The whole experience was incredible. The classes were very interesting and I loved the teachers. I'm going to miss all of them. I learned a lot and I hope I can apply the main principles back home. The structure of the day was perfect for me and the whole group of people was amazing. In one month you get attached pretty strongly. I will have these memories in my heart for the rest of my life.

The organizers were very caring and always available if needed.

The food was great and very tasty.

I wish I could have stayed longer ^^ Maybe for a 300hours, who knows... ;)

Thank you for this month. I'm gonna miss you guys so much! <3

"Eine sehr schöne Zeit"

Die Location der Schule ist sehr schön und in der Nähe der Berge. Die Zimmer sind für die Verhältnisse hier ganz gut. Ich hatte ein Privatzimmer und es war ganz angenehm. Das Essen war okay, hätte aber bisschen mehr Abwechslung gebraucht oder bisschen mehr Würze. Jede Stunde war sehr interessant und man lernt sehr viel in einer kurzen Zeit. Die Lehrer waren sehr sehr gut und kannten sich sehr gut aus, trotz ihres jungen alters. Wir hatten Hatha und Ashtanga Yoga, es war sehr interessant und man lernt echt viel in einem Monat. Die Lehrer sind sehr hilfbereit und kümmern sich gut um die SchülerInnen.

"Perfect spiritual journey "

Happy namaste all !

Everything. The place felt like home sweet home/om.

The location is great, quiet and peaceful place surrounded by amazing green views.

The staff is truly adorable, they are helpful, if you need anything you can ask them. They took great care of me when I was sick for example.

The teachers are professional and experienced and really nice and encouraging which helps improving a lot.

Lots of positive energy in Rishikesh YTTC School. I loved it.

"One of the most amazing experience in my life"

The teacher training was great! I had one of the greatest times of my life!

The teachers are doing a great Job. I really enjoyed all of the classes. Also the standard of teaching is very high and you get the possibility to learn much more than the usual subjects wich are thought in a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training.

The area around is very peacefull and the mountains have a great energy.

The Staff is amazing! They always take care of you and want you to feel home at any time. And by the way, the food is delicious!

I can highly recommend this Yoga School to everyone who wants to go deeper into practice as most of the schools go during the 200 hours, no matter if you are a beginner or advanced in your Yoga practice.

For everybody who want to find a real family for life, but also find theirselves.

Thank you YTTC to let me be part of your family!

"An enriching and beautiful experience! "

The location of the school is perfect! Quietly nestled away from the hustle, the school is surrounded by nature and animals, with amazing views. All teachers were extremely knowledgeable and passionate in their subjects, and the team in general can’t do enough for everyone!

The course was well organized and put together, the schedule was perfect too, allowing us enough time to rest and self study.

The food was also Delicious!!

I leave Rishikesh with a heavy yet very full heart. A memorable and enriching month at Rishikesh YTTC, thank you team and teachers!! I’ll be back for 300 hours :)

Love & Light

"Really good experience "

All the staff took care of me really well since the very first day I landed in India. Due to some problems with my Indian visa I was a bit late for the course and they were very supportive and replayed to all my emails quickly. All the staff is very kind and loving. They treated us a family. I loved the amazing people I got to meet there, it’s nice to find people with the same philosophy of life as you. Would definitely recommend this place 😊 They are all adorable. May come back for the 300h teacher training.

"Magic experience"

Since the day you arrive they make you feel like you are home, you don’t see the staff as actual staff because they become family, always taking care of everyone. The content is great, like any 200h course, it is pretty basic but i have learned soooo much during this month and have rectified many asanas i was doing wrong so now i am ready to align my future students. The food is excelent but a little repetitive, chef is awesome and opened to suggestions tho. The location is great, remote from the city which is super noisy, so its good to be away from all that. The whole experience is 10/10 and it was so hard to leave , but will come back for sure. I wouldn’t go to any other school now that i’ve found them.

I was really happy with the school and would totally recommend them.

Everyone is so helpful and nice and they let you feel very welcome. My single room was really comfy and had everything I need. The food is also very nice (a lot of vegetables and fruits, rice and lentils). The course itself has a big program, which is normal when you choose a 200h course in 4 weeks ;)

All the teachers are very competent and I definitely learned a lot - for my practice and for my life. Unfortunately we didn’t had a lot anatomy (there you have to do a lot of selfstudy).

The location of the school is very good! It’s walking distance to the main road but on the hill, so it’s not so crowded and loud like in the center!

I had a unforgettable time there and definitely will come back one day.

Thanks a lot for everything!

Food location: I think the food is nice and healthy and I am gonna miss this food in all my life. I came 1st time in India and when I landed first time in India I was so scared but as soon as I arrived in RishikeshYTTC school, I could feel the location and the energy around. I am up seat of living this place because this has become my 2nd home in India. Every day the food was so amazing and pure healthy food. Best school in Rishikesh. Love you all.

About teachers: All the teachers are so amazing and I learned so much, each day was so challenging with Rohit and Sanjeev Ji, They cover so many things in this 1 month. I can’t expect more than this. Teachers in this school are so friendly and professional and strict when needed. In the end I will only say that this people who work in this school, they are always here for you.

Yogi Sanjeev: Can’t explain in few words that how much Sanjeev Ji love his job and look after each and every single person in school. He is a great teacher & C.E.O of the RishikeshYTTC. We learned a lot from Sanjeev Ji regarding asanas, teaching methodology, adjustment, personal development and he always give good advice. Even Sanjeev Ji Father is playing a biggest role in this school. Gopal, Sachin,

I was anxious about going to India, coz I had never been there and didn’t know what to expect. My wish was to be able to teach yoga safely and with confidence. For the whole period I was surrounded by people with positive energy and knowledge. Another benef

"Outstanding hospitality"

Its such a great opportunity to go deeper with your practice and to absorb all the knowledge from amazing teachers. Each class was a blast for me. Even though I was staying only for 8 days I took advantage of it more than I expected. Friendly staff and delicious food will make you feel like home. Thank you for your outstanding hospitality.

"Very recommended place for a Yoga teacher training"

I liked that my room was clean, tidy and comfortable. That the teachers and everybody working there cares for you. Especially when you are sick.That is extremely helpful and appreciated. I liked the yoga instructions and the fact there is so much enphasis in doing a pose correctly. Yoga alignment is excellent.

I loved the food and the kitchen staff. They are really lovely and hardworking. I like that you can relax and be yourself and feel accepted .

"More than just yoga training "

I’m grateful I had the opportunity to spend time at the RYTTC. It’s been an experience of self-discovery and spirituality, of physical challenge and friendship, of laughs and learnings. I met amazing teachers and friends, and it has brought me so much more than I could have expected, in yoga and in life.

The RYTTC family (managers, teachers, kitchen staff, everyone) surrounds you and welcomes you with love and positivity from day one, and the vibe is the one of a summer camp, bonding with the other students. At the same time the days are super structured, focused and varied - from daily meditation and pranayama to Hatha and Ashtanga yoga practices, mantra chanting, anatomy and philosophy. The teachers are incredible, their knowledge and wisdom is refreshing, inspiring and together they have impacted my practice and transformed my approach to yoga. Thank you ❤️

I very much recommend RYTTC to everyone with an open heart and mind, it had been a while since I had felt so inspired and felt so good in my body and mind. Enjoy!
