    "Even more than I expected"

    I joined Yogkulam's 300 h program in June 2024. The weather was extremely hot, the weeks were challenging and we worked hard to graduate, but it was really the best decision of my life to go to Rishikesh and choose Yogkulam's program! Also the location is perfect.

    Yogkulam = yoga family, and we really got to experience what this means. You will be taken care of 100%. When I got sick, they showed how much they cared. We were also able to give written feedback halfway through the training, so that development would still be possible during our course.

    The level of the lessons is really high. I expected to learn a lot, but the amount of learning even exceeded my expectations. I loved every minute.

    - Yoga Therapy was new to me, and the group loved these classes.

    - Learned so much new about anatomy from Amit Ji! As a yoga and fitness instructor, I have studied anatomy a lot before, BUT here I learned which asanas help to correct e.g. spine, knee and shoulder problems or how asanas are related to the brain, nervous system or endocrine system. Great lessons!

    - We also learned so many different meditation and pranayama methods.

    - Our yoga philosophy classes were both interesting and useful and even went beyond the curriculum. We got a lot of good tips about what to experience in India or Rishikesh and what the culture is really about.

    I am grateful beyond words and my head is full of new ideas on how to develop my yoga business and teaching in the coming years.

    Thank you <3!

    ""Amazing experience ""

    I had an incredible experience during my 24-day stay at yogkulam for my yoga teacher training course. This journey provided the perfect refresh I needed. The staff were exceptionally warm and friendly, making me feel right at home. The food was delicious, the accommodations were super comfortable and charming, and the spa massages were both soothing and indulgent. The yoga and meditation sessions were not only nurturing but also highly educational. I absolutely loved my time here and can't wait to return.

    This training was an unique and amazing experience! The school was clean and the food so delicious! Everyone there is kind and takes care everytime. I enjoyed the professional but also funny classes and I am impressed by the huge knowledge about Yoga which all teachers have. The other students, the teachers and everyone there became a family - YogKulam! Thanks for this unforgettable experience!

    "This journey changed my life"

    Everything ! The school is very well located, in a quiet area but also close to all accomodations. The building is very nice and well equiped, I found the yoga hall a pleasant place to practice. All the teachers and staff were welcoming, kind and willing to help with anything. I really appreciated how they take care of me when I got sick. Everything is clean and food was amazing.

    Concerning the teacher training, it went beyond my expectations. I wanted to go to India to get the chance to acquire a complete vision of yoga and I was not disappointed. Having pranayama, philosophy and meditation class everyday really made a big difference for me, I could embrace yoga totally and I could feel how it impacted me just after a few days of practice. Now I know I can provide my students with all different aspects of yoga and not only "fitness yoga" as we can see sometimes in Europe, people just teaching asanas and looking for performance only.

    I am very grateful for the wellness and new vision of life that Yogkulam transmitted to me, I'm already thinking about coming back for the 300hours !

    "An unforgettable experience and life changing foundation"

    I absolutely loved how well the teachers created a safe space for us to try new asanas, how encouraging and helpful they were and how familiar it all felt. The staff went out of their way to present us amazing food and made sure our requests in regards to different things were met. We had a lot of freedom which I appreciate and any questions were answered promptly.

    "Worth the Time!"

    My time with Yogkulam was an amazing experience from the moment i stepped in and got through. The welcome and introduction was very nice and everything was informed clearly which holds a high value for me. Getting a taxi at Dehradun airport adds up a point as well and with clear instructions. The teachers are good at what they do and provide hands on experience to us. The batch was perfect sized and food is super good and nutritious. Highly recommended!

The instructors are knowledgeable, friendly and supportive, and they tailor the sessions to suit each individual's needs and goals. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing, and the facilities are clean and well-maintained. I have noticed improvements in my physical and mental health, as well as my confidence and self-esteem.

    "Will Recommend"

    The course was full of knowledge and i gained a lot during the experience as i exoected.

    I choose them due to the recommendation of my friend and it was truly correct. We should acknowledge that India is a different country than us and the culture differs alot as well.

    Their efforts were highly exceptional as i have already experienced India before and they were always there to solve if anything was of concern.

    Great People!

    -the place: beautiful and peacefull, very authentic in the Jungle and a great location

    -the teachers: know what they do, a lot of knowledge and very helpful, always here to share.

    Also the staff are very kind.

    -the experience: on sunday the excursion was great and they have a talented photograph for beautiful memories. The celebration/opening/ending were super nice !

    Awesome training, it goes deep and you learn a lot, that's all the point!

    "Great experience"

    I have done my 300hrs in December and I had a great experience. The level of the teachings is as high as I expected. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable, I choose a double room and they cleaned it regularly, the kitchen provides a variety of super tasty and healthy meals. On Sundays they organize free tour to visit temples or excursions on the Ganaga river to do rafting, you never get bored and they do the maximum efforts to make every students at their ease. The classes are challenging enough and lots of fun, so I could go deeper on my practice and on my whole knowledge of the yoga philosophy behind the asanas. I also appreciated the practical classes on how to manage and tailor a class during the teaching methodology class. The school is very professional and all the staff supports the students in every aspects from the booking to the end of the stay helping the students to arrange taxi to the airport. The place is on the nicest and quieter side of Rishikesh, very close to nice cafes and shops to spend some free time in a unique atmosphere by the holy river Ganga, still it is in a quieter area surrounded by mango trees, where there is silence enough to keep the focus on the yoga training. Overall I had a great experience and I warmly recommend everybody to choose this school. Very great value for money. I felt at home and it has been one of the best yoga experience I had.

    "A fully immersive and well rounded experience "

    The courses were engaging and well planned. The food was wonderful - thank you for accommodating my dietary restrictions! The teachers were all knowledgeable and good at teaching their respective subjects. The sound healing session was incredible, as well as the two scheduled Bollywood dance classes! The schedule was challenging since it was a full day of classes, but ultimately, the experience was extremely rewarding! Also, the location is back away from the main roads, so come 10 pm, it is quiet and that makes it easy to sleep. Overall, I cannot recommend this academy enough!

    Yogkulam was one of the greatest decisions I’ve made in my life.

    I’ve completed my 200 hour YTT I’m definitely coming back for my 300 YTT.

    Every teacher there is way more than a purely professional teacher, they are all charismatic, diverse personalities, each having their unique vision and teaching style. I was inspired by them all and learned so much from everyone.

    They’ll challenge you, give you that push that you know you need, help you realise how infinite you potential is, but do that in a respectful, compassionate and empathetic manner.

    During the 3 weeks we spent together we lived, learned, laughed, sang, danced, loved, cared for one another, and went on adventures together, I’m certain we all found soulmates for a lifetime during this journey we were blessed to take.

    Be sure that if you come to this place with your heart open, and ready to become part of a family, Yogkulam’s hearts will be there to meet yours.

    Thank you guys once again, see you soon in Rishikesh ❤️🤗

    Rishikesh Yogkulam was a real family vibe, from the moment I arrived. Every member of the staff are super helpful, kind and patient. Pankaj Ji and Jitender Ji i particular were total gems, always there to come with us on excursions, like a comedy double act. Just brilliant fun, as well as being competent asana teachers. The sound healing, bollywood lesson and beach yoga experiences were all lovely extras. The emotional release was...transformational, so good I had another one before i left.

    The standard of teaching I felt was very good. Amit Ji was a particularly excellent teacher, so clear! Mandeep Ji was also a treasure, I could listen to him chant mantras alllll day long, he has a beautiful presence. We had one big assignment, which covered all class modules and 3 teaching classes as part of our assessments at the end. Which we all felt well prepared for.

    The meals at the school were nice and healthy, different everyday. Located on the balcony where we could enjoy the sun and get to see the 200ytt group & mingle.

    Big shout out to Ella Ji, she was such a delight to interact with, she offered so much local knowledge and advice, always with a smile and patience. Her occasional yin classes in place of ashtanga were an absolute joy!

    Loved it and would recommend ❤️

    It is a right decision I made to attend Yoga Teacher Training at this place. Instructors are very professional, friendly and as the name "YogKulam", I always feel like I am at home and with family.

    Food are great, too. Friendly staffs make me feel fantastics. Room are very comfortable and have all necessities.

    I also love how the program are designed. Although, it make a bit challenges in the beginning, but with dedication and efforts, it is the best program to become a yoga teacher.

    I would recommend to join 200 or 300 (I am taking 500 YTT), whether you like to practice Yoga yourself or to become professional yoga teacher.

    Thank you. "Rishikesh Yogkulam". May you can create a big Yoga Family. Thanks for hosting me here as one of the family member. :)

    Wow! What an amazing experience!

    This was my second trip to Rishikesh to Yoga teacher training and I so glad I chose Rishikesh Yogkulam.

    The teaching was fantastic…. Sadhu ji's philosophy classes were best... I could have listened to him all day….. Jittu ji took us for Hatha Yoga. His style was really inclusive, and the classes were always fun & challenging. Every teacher was Brilliant by the way! Pankaj ji for both adjustments & Ashtanga was also a real winner. Style was to challenge us, and he certainly did whilst also teach us a lot. Amit ji let us in how to be better teachers and had some gems that have brought back to the delight of my students in Scotland. Ella ji’s Yin was simply beautiful, and the Meditation with Deepa ji was so educational, interesting, relaxing, and fun….

    Accommodation: Comfortable & clean.

    Food: Satvic Diet is not for everyone but there was plenty, and it was varied. As the school is in the centre of Tapovan, there is many other places you can get food that is same way tasty and cheap.

    Excursions: Included in the price and where I went on were brilliant. An early morning at Baal Kumari Temple and other places.

    Overall, this was the most amazing experience I had...

    I can’t say enough good things about this school. It was one of the best things I ever did for myself. I stayed for 500 hour YTTC over a two month period, and in that time I had the privilege of learning from some of the most amazing teachers I have ever had, all of whom I now consider friends. From the moment I arrived I was welcomed with open arms, and my apprehension about being in a new country quickly diminished. You quickly begin to feel at home, and are treated like part of the family. The classes are fantastic, they are thoughtfully and thoroughly put together, and the teachers are very knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach, as well as invested in your learning. Its not an overstatement to say that much of my outlook on life has changed because of the valuable lessons I have learned here. I will always be grateful that I chose this school and was able to spend my time with all of the amazing people that made it possible. I feel incredibly blessed that my journey through life took me here. From the new experiences, the knowledge I have gained, the personal growth, the sense of acceptance I have seldom found and the lifelong friends that I have made, I can earnestly say that this is a very special place. I sincerely hope I am able to visit again soon. Thank you so much for everything. Much love to everyone!!!

    This school is amazing. I just spent one month there for the 200HR training, the experience was incredible.

    Rishikesh is full of schools but I am glad I found this one. First, the teachers are really knowledgeable, you can be sure you will learn a lot. All of them are very good teachers, and this makes, I think, the difference with other schools. It is usually a different teacher for each lecture and this gives a very good rythm for the day with many different and interesting interactions.

    Second, the whole team cares a lot about the students, and not only as yoga students but also on a day to day life. They were always so helpful and kind, trying to find solutions if there were problems, or being there for sick people.

    Third, they keep the groups below 15 persons, which is a perfect number to really share this experience with others, in a private environment and have a personal and adapted training. No drop in classes are possible for outside people, which really differentiates them from other schools, making the teaching even more valuable.

    The food was very good, fresh and changing everyday. You can try most of the Indian specialties by staying there, and the chef even adapted its menus to what we would prefer which was very appreciated.

    I stayed in a new building, in a very green area, calm and peaceful, with a garden, mango trees, on the other side of the bridge facing Tapovan, but still with a lot of cafés and shops.

    And, super nice excursions are provided on sundays!!

    My time at Rishikesh Yogkulam was truly exceptional and left a lasting impression on me. From the moment I arrived, I felt welcomed and embraced by the serene atmosphere of Rishikesh and the warm hospitality of the staff.

    The teachers at Yogkulam were not just knowledgeable but also incredibly dedicated. They imparted their wisdom with passion and patience, making the learning experience both enlightening and enjoyable. Whether it was yoga asanas, meditation techniques, or the philosophy behind it all, I felt like I was in the hands of true experts who genuinely cared about my progress.

    The food at the school was a delightful surprise. It was not only delicious but also wholesome and nourishing. Each meal was a culinary journey through the flavors of India, and it was clear that the chefs put great care into creating balanced and nutritious meals for the students. It was a perfect complement to the physical and mental rejuvenation happening through our daily practices.

    In terms of personal growth, I can confidently say that I learned so much during my time at Rishikesh Yogkulam. The teachings went beyond the physical practice of yoga and meditation; they extended into a deeper understanding of life, mindfulness, and the connection between body and soul. The lessons I learned here will continue to resonate with me long after I've left.

    I left Rishikesh Yogkulam with a sense of gratitude and fulfillment.

    My yoga teacher training in Rishikesh Yogkulam was (more than) perfect! The group was super supportive and kind and I felt welcome form the very first beginning. Our teachers were the best teacher I could possibly imagine – so empowering, supportive, understanding und just lovely. We all had a great time together, sharing our experiences, talking about yoga history and philosophy and practicing amazing sequences together. I wouldn’t want to miss this time in my life – It made me become a better version of myself and I am beyond grateful for the chance to attend the YTT with Yogkulam!

    This was truly life-changing experience. I have been practicing yoga for some time but had never before met such an authentic, soulful, wise, skillful and loving group of teachers. Each teacher brings their own value and personality to the program, making it a transforming experience on so many different levels. I am very impressed with how well they have balanced all the elements of the training. There was time and space for theory, practice as well as deep self-inquiry and fun. You could feel that these teachers truly embody what they teach. Spending this month with them was an amazing learning experience which I feel grateful to have experienced. Thank You! The community that was created during the training was full of support and inspiration, which still continues after the course. I loved the training at Rishikesh Yogkulam. The food was amazing. What a treat! It was lovely to have a driver waiting for me on arrival to Delhi Airport. Highly recommended!!!

    A comprehensive introduction to Yoga for students who wish to build a solid foundation of authentic Yoga theory and practice with its contemporary possibilities. Amit is a generous and professional teacher able to tune in with a wide range of student profiles and who shares him in depth knowledge from a place of passion, making it accessible and easy to memorize. I personally love the way the course grounds theory into practice and how the wide curriculum opens up for extensive opportunities of further self-study through the generous course material that teachers shares. I arrived new (and sceptical) to yoga with a background teaching classes. Every morning started with an amazing breakfast which was also available for different diet types. Overall, I loved the program at Rishikesh Yogkulam and i recommend Yogkulam to everyone.

    The tutors were extremely experienced, knowledgeable and thorough with their teachings. They were also very approachable, warm and caring. I had trained with another yoga school previous to this training programme, but did not feel ready to teach. This yoga teacher training course however has now given me the confidence to teach my own classes, and offer yoga sessions for other schools or students. My peers on the course were all like minded and beautiful souls. I now also have gained some deep friendships for life due to this experience. I am extremely grateful to Rishikesh Yogkulam for positively enhancing my life in more ways than one. I am also looking to go back with this school in future to complete my continued practice training.

    I have only kind words for Yogkulam. I took the 200TTC. We were only 10 people and it was great to be such a small group. A luxury 😀 The teachers were amazing. Asana teachers, Jutu-Ji, Panku-Ji and Ella-Ji were able to take care of all of us with different levels. You never feel bad with them. They know how to

    motivate you. I really enjoy the Filosify class and meditation. And pranayama and anatomy where amazing too. I love that they are all so young, but at the same time they have so much to share. I will come back to Yogkulam 😀

    The food was great and the accommodation was Indian style 😂 nothing fancy but you don't have time to be in the room, just to sleep 😂.

    Nothing to hesitate, just go and enjoy!

    The Yoga Teacher's Training at Rishikesh Yogkulam was just phenomenal. This was my very first International teacher's training and it was worth attending. I've no complaints nor any regrets. It was beyond our expectations. Each and everything was just perfect. It was a magical journey. The chef cooked really healthy, nutrious and scrumptious food for us. Vegan, Gluten Free and vegetarian all options were available. Each and every person was catered, fulfilled and entertained individually. The location is a very beautiful, comfortable and safe area. The rooms are very cozy, clean and hygienic. The room service is very efficient and flawless. The staff of the school is extremely kind and caring. They all made us feel like home. We all were very safe and secure. I would really highly recommend Rishikesh Yogkulam. I assure you that you won't only learn professionally but also grow as a human being. They are family to me and I feel so blessed and grateful that I met them and learnt so much from them.

    Thank you Yogkulam family, my dear friends who studied with me and helped me grow and share their beautiful energy with me. Thank you Amit Ji for all the shared and unbelievably useful knowledge for my betterment but also to help me achieve a level of understanding that will allow me to share the saame to other friends. I have learned about the benefits and contradictions during the intense training, how to safely and effectively practice yoga as a beginner and so much more. All this knowledge put in action makes me so much more confident and at ease with my will to be a yoga teacher and spread the knowledge with others. Sadhu Ji was very understanding and gentle and knew how to transmit the information in a way that wasn’t stressful. I would love to continue to learn some more through the 300 hour Advancement course. I wish all the best to whole Yogkulam team in the future and I hope to meet you all again. 🙏🏼

    The TTC programme is very well thought out to include a lot of practice and each aspect at the right times of day. There is a lot of time in classes each day which I liked as you can really get some idea of what yoga in India is. The teachers were excellent - knowledgeable, able to teach the concepts clearly, patient and true yogis by nature. They all learned their subjects well and you can see this consistency in their teachings. I did the 200 hour YTTC and loved the Philosophy sessions, and ofcourse the Meditation and Alignment classes. Thank you to all the teachers and staff who work very hard and are there to help with every need and always gentle and good humoured. This can be a bonus if you also want to combine sightseeing and socialising with fellow training participants.

    I recommend it to everyone!!!!

    The rooms were very comfortable, the yoga hall was clean and spacious and the daily meals were so delicious!

    As a bonus the Sunday excursions were fun and provided an opportunity to see the beauty of rishikesh. It is apparent that the staff at this school puts in a lot of effort to make this experience safe and enjoyable for each student.

    Yogkulam - An Oasis for Yoga

    The teachers are absolutely fantastic! They've got an amazing team well versed in Hatha, Ashtanga, Alignment & Adjustment, Philosophy, Pranayama, and Meditation. Each class I had the teachers' passions shone through. They effortlessly catered to everyone's level, making the sessions super accessible and rewarding.

    The staff at Yogkulam deserves a big shoutout too. They were always there to lend a hand or share a smile. The communication was on point, both before, during, and after the course, making sure we felt welcomed and cared for throughout our stay.

    I stayed in a private room, and after some intense yoga sessions, coming back to a cozy space was just so nice. The facilities were neat and tidy, and there is room cleaning too every few days.

    The teachings are very authentic as well. It's like diving headfirst into the heart of yoga's rich tradition. The wisdom and knowledge they shared with us felt like magic, taking our practice to a whole new level. You can feel the genuine love they have for yoga, and it's contagious.

    A Life-Changing Experience with Rishikesh Yogkulam, I've recently completed a course that has completely transformed my approach to yoga. By learning to listen to my body and practice mindfulness, I've come to understand the true essence of yoga as a lifestyle. Before this, I simply watched online videos and went through the poses without any real focus. The teachers at this academy are exceptional, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have learned from such an amazing team. Each class was a valuable learning experience that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I can't recommend this course enough. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Yogkulam...!

    "A blissful experience"

    Doing the YTTC with Rishikesh Yogkulam was absolute bliss of an experience. From the instructors to the staff, everyone was really caring and welcoming. Learning from Amit Ji, Jeetu Ji and Panku Ji was the best of all also Sadhu ji's philosophy class was always so calming and everyone loved their time with them. I never knew that learning would be so fun and helpful at the same time. The food was also very tasty and fulfilling.

    Overall, i recommend Yogkulam to everyone.

    The location is amazing. If you want some nature, out of the busy and noisy city, this place is the best. Surrounded by nature, space to be on your own, practising yoga with the birds singing around... Quality of teaching was what I was expecting, even better. Learnt so much on the traditions of yoga, and being able to practise all of these (cleansing techniques, physical practise, pranayama, meditation, etc) is a great opportunity to get a deeper understanding of what yoga really is. Food was so good, every day so tasty, diverse and typical Indian. The whole team running the school is very caring and helpful. Always available if we need something, but also to have some fun and dance under the rain! One of the most important criteria for me when choosing a teacher training was to be surrounded by nature, and now I know I made the best choice :)

    The quality of this training was beyond my expectations. Communications were clear. Schedules were on point. You learn to be disciplined and making yoga part of your daily routine. Methodologies were excellent. Amit as a manager and his wife treat every student like a family and do their best to support and assist you. Thanks again for building this school and sharing your knowledge in Yoga, Asanas, Yoga Philosophy and many more with us. It was for sure a transformative journey for me.

    This is my second course with yogkulam, and for the second time I am truly amazed at everything I have learned. They have stimulated my body, mind and spirit in such a way that I just can't get enough now! I will definitely be enrolling in yet another course from them.

    ""An in-depth experience of traditional yoga""

    I attended the YTTC starting in 2023 and had a truly memorable and invigorating experience! Having practiced yoga daily in many different forms since six - seven years and attended many different kinds of workshop on different related subjects, I truly enjoyed going to the depth of this traditional integral yoga including the asanas/poses, pranayama, concentration and meditation techniques as well as the yogi philosophy, anatomy etc etc. It was very insightful and deepened my understanding and knowing in many aspects encompassing benefits for body, mind and spirit. We were a beautiful group of students - perfect size - and I felt that just by sharing this experience we learned a lot from each other while at the same time being beautifully and lovingly guided by teachers who have extensive knowledge and experience within these fields. The knowledge and insights gained during these weeks are profound and I am eager to keep on processing and implementing what we learned and experienced with the aim of also sharing this with anyone that I think may benefit from it. I can warmly recommend this YTTC!

    Rishikesh Yogkulam will gift you with an exceptional experience that will provide you with so much knowledge + skills + the confidence to go out and teach. My main reason to do a yoga teacher training was to get more insights into yoga as a whole lifestyle and I just wanted to be open minded and see if teaching would be something for me. This YTTC has truly given me much more than I could have hoped for! Not only were the teachers extremely skilled - but their different characters made every lesson unique in their own way.

    The teachers gave me the confidence to teach and to believe that I can do it. It´s amazing how fast you learn teaching skills from them and when we were teaching our final flows I was so impressed how much we improved within 3 weeks.

    I will surely never forget our Kirtan sessions and the way they made me feel. Overall, I loved my YTTC with Rishikesh Yogkulam and highly recommend it.

    "What a journey!"

    The trainiing with Rishikesh Yogkulam was just everything and more than I could have asked for. The teachers were so professional and experienced and each of them brought their very own and individual story and spirituality into the course… that made this training an amazing and beautiful little spiritual journey far away from modern instagram yoga while we learned so so so much about the "real yoga“. I am more than glad that I went with Rishikesh Yogkulam for my yoga training.

    There are no words to express my gratitude for the life changing journeys I went through thanks to Rishikesh Yogkulam. The teachers were incredibly knowledgeable and inspiring with a unique energy that made me feel supported and nurtured at the same time. Through yoga I have learnt so much about life in general, about myself and the others. The course allowed me to dive deeper within, take a break from my mind and have glimpses of my true self while embracing my authenticity. I'm already looking forward to the next trainings with Rishikesh Yogkulam, can't wait to grow alongside with them. Once again, THANK YOU Yogkulam, thank you to your fantastic teachers and support team and for reminding all of us what life is all about. Keep doing the amazing job you're already doing and spreading more love and kindness in the world!

    I really love everything about this training, the quality of the courses was very thorough, with teachers who know their field very well. Teacher knows what they are talking about, I learnt so much about yoga through their teaching. You feel very surrounded and supported in this course… We have the opportunity to learn very quickly the core of this instrument which is Anatomy. I am very happy to have taken this course and I recommend it to everyone.

    I look forward to my next time with the team and sending lots of love and light 😃

    "What an incredible month immersed in the beauty of nature"

    Choosing to study yoga in India has truly been a wonderful decision. This journey has exceeded my expectations and transformed my life in ways I couldn't have imagined. As a solo female traveler, I had some pre-trip jitters, but yogkulam embraced me with a strong sense of security and comfort.

    Let me tell you, the heart of yogkulam lies in its amazing staff and the natural beauty that surrounds it. The staff here is not just helpful and knowledgeable about yoga, they're like a close-knit family. The management team is genuinely caring and dedicated to the school's mission. The teachings from our instructors were so rich and holistic, and one session that really touched my soul was the meditation guided by deepa ji whose classes I absolutely adored. Her positive energy and infectious smile made every class a delight.

    The campus of yogkulam is nestled amidst nature's beauty. Playful monkeys with the Ganges just a stone's throw away, majestic mountains in the backdrop, and a gentle stream flowing nearby, the setting is truly serene. Yet, just a short walk away, you find a lively market.

    I hold the hope in my heart that one day, I'll have the privilege to revisit my yogkulam family.

    It was one of the top 10 best experiences of my life. Big thank to the school team, teachers & staff to make us feel safe & comfortable. They treat every single students as a family and I think that what makes Rishikesh Yogkulam is one of the best yoga school in Rishikesh, India.

    Now about the teacher: All the teachers are great & very knowledgeable which includes amit ji, dheeru ji, pankaj ji, jitu ji & mandeep ji.

    Rooms are comfortable, food is the best, facilities are good. Every Sunday we did excursion which was awesome and authentic.

    Come without any expectation to get the best out of it.

    I was very nervous before my journey to Rishikesh. But as soon as I entered the school all nervousness was gone. I felt so welcome and immediately very comfortable.

    I will definitely complete my 300 hours YTTC in rishikesh yogkulam.

    Highly recommended😀.

    The teachers were absolutely amazing, and I had an absolute blast learning from them. Their teachings have made a tremendous difference in both my personal yoga practice and my ability to teach others. they were the sweetest! Always ready to help you and adjust you during the classes with incredible patience. But you know what truly made this experience unforgettable? The people I met along the way. I've formed deep and lasting friendships, and I can't wait to reunite with them. Honestly, this journey has transformed my life in ways I never imagined. And when i decided to pursue a 300-hour training with them, there was no doubt to return here. Don't hesitate—book it now! I promise you won't have a single regret!!

    "The experience was fine. "

    The excursions were fun and exciting. The accommodations were good: the beds were comfortable and the A/C really helped keep cool in the intense heat. The instructors were all very knowledgeable and friendly. The yoga was very good and well taught. The kitchen staff was also very helpful. The food had good flavor; however, the 300 hour group ate second so our food was frequently cold, on more than on occasion not enough food was left over for us, we honesty had to limit ourselves multiple times in order for the whole group to have enough to eat. If you informed the kitchen staff they usually made more but you had to wait for it to be prepared which was quite unfair for us group.

    Enrolling in the 200 YTT program at Rishikesh Yogkulam has truly been the most rewarding choice I've ever made for my personal growth. Those 25 days were nothing short of a life-changing and transformative experience, leaving me feeling profoundly happy and serene in that sacred space.

    The meals provided were not only nourishing but also incredibly delicious, and the amenities offered were simple yet excellent! (water boiler + WIFI + aircon (extra charges) + filtered water + weekly room cleaning service + weekly towel change)

    Throughout my stay at Rishikesh Yogkulam, I felt exceptionally comfortable. I can't speak highly enough of all the teachers, especially Master D, Jitu Ji, and Pankaj Ji. They went above and beyond in taking care of us, generously sharing their wisdom, nurturing our growth each day. Not only are they knowledgeable, but they also possess a wonderful sense of humor, kindness, and the most compassionate hearts!

    Without hesitation, I would wholeheartedly recommend Rishikesh Yogkulam to anyone in search of an exceptional YTT school in Rishikesh! It's an experience you won't want to miss!

    "Wonderful experience. Yogkulam IS like family. "

    I did my 500hr TTC at Rishikesh Yogkulam and I’m extremely happy I did. There are so many different yoga places to choose from it’s hard to know where is the best. After two months I’m confident I found one of the best.

    Above all what made Yogkulam special was the staff and instructor. From the crew making the delicious food every day, to the amazingly knowledgeable and patient instructors, you really did feel like part of an extended family. Accommodations were clean and comfortable. Classes were organized and comprehensive. Weekend excursions were really fun. The food was plentiful and tasty. And the other classmates became good friends as we bonded over our shared experience.

    The course itself was challenging, but in a good way, and after completing it I definitely know I learned a lot about Yoga, and not just the asanas but the overall philosophy and application of all the limbs. After leaving and taking a few drop in classes at other spots in Rishikesh I realized even more just how good our instructors were.

    Overall a wonderful experience. Honestly I would have stayed there and done the course again just because I loved the day to day experience, people, accommodations and food that much. I did extended my stay in India an extra month and even though I had finished my course the staff still was kind enough to assist me with my travel plans to make sure I got to where I needed to be. So much love for the Yogkulam family. See you soooon!

    The course went above and beyond my expectations, delivering exactly what I was looking for: a perfect balance of challenge and accessibility. It's designed for individuals who want to deepen their yoga knowledge, expand their practice, and prepare for a future as a yoga teacher. From my limited experience with yoga teachers, Amit and D truly shine as exceptional instructors. Their extensive knowledge and unwavering passion created an environment of immense learning both during and after the class. I am forever grateful to them for guiding me on this incredible yoga journey. Ajju is an absolute joy, and the amazing Jittu Ji and Panku Ji added even more value to the experience. Enrolling in this course was undoubtedly the best decision I made for my yoga path. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who has a foundation in asana practice and dreams of becoming a teacher themselves! ❤️

    I embarked on my 300-hour multi-style yoga teacher training without any specific expectations. Originally, I had intended to attend a different school, but certain circumstances led me here instead. I must admit, I felt a tad apprehensive and doubtful after my previous school plans didn't work out as anticipated. However, as soon as I arrived and was warmly welcomed by rishikesh yo, all my worries vanished, and I knew I had arrived at the perfect place. The entire team of teachers has been absolutely amazing—mindful, attentive, and always ready to address our queries. Their passion for teaching and their dedication to our growth and development in yoga is truly inspiring. Although the program has been demanding within such a short timeframe, the school has done a fantastic job of keeping us energized and focused. They organized delightful festivities, spiritual outings, and engaging lectures that helped rejuvenate us and maintain a positive atmosphere. Moreover, the supportive community of fellow students contributed greatly to our collective pursuit of excellence in learning. I'm certain that this training will propel me to unforeseen heights in my personal yoga journey.

    Wow, I recently had the most incredible 3-week stay at the Rishikesh Yogkulam in India. It was truly life-changing! I had my own cozy single room that I had to take care of, which helped me develop a sense of responsibility and independence.

    The schedule was quite intense, but in a good way. We would wake up at the crack of dawn to start our day. The weather and food were different from what I was accustomed to, but it added to the adventure. The focus of this place was personal growth, and let me tell you, it delivered exactly that.

    The teachers were absolutely amazing. They are on their own journeys to enlightenment, and it was inspiring to be a part of their guidance. The fellow students were incredible too. We came from different parts of the world and became like a tight-knit family.

    In a nutshell, this wasn't just a yoga school; it was a transformative sanctuary. I am definitely going back for more knowledge and personal growth. If you're interested in learning, embracing change, and making lifelong international friends, I highly recommend checking it out. Believe me, it's the real deal!

The highly experienced yoga teachers were very caring and supportive throughout the entire program. I was so impressed with the very detailed curriculum that covered all aspects of yoga, including philosophy, anatomy, and teaching methodology. The staff at Rishikesh Yogkulam were also amazing - they were always available to answer any questions and provide support.

    My experience from start to finish. Every single staff member quickly begins to feel like true family and friends. The instructors and the way they teach and provide us with all of their knowledge so generously. You can feel their passion for the school and for Yoga, not just the asana but everything that must be understood (yoga philosophy, meditation, pranayama, yoga anatomy & physiology) to fully immerse yourself in a yogic life.

    I genuinely feel like the luckiest person on earth to be able to stay I started my spiritual journey here in Rishikesh Yogkulam and will forever be grateful!

    The location was perfect and I was able to really get a feel of all areas of Rishikesh, without stress of feeling to far away. Sunday excursions organised by the school were always well thought of and a fun way to end an intense (but fun) week of training!

    I did not want my time to end here although I’m sure I’ll be back to return for my 300hours YTTC.

    "Do it do it do it do it do it "

    I can’t say enough good things about this school. It was one of the best things I ever did for myself. I stayed for both the 200 and 300 hour courses over a two month period, and in that time I had the privilege of learning from some of the most amazing teachers I have ever had, all of whom I now consider friends. From the moment I arrived I was welcomed with open arms, and my apprehension about being in a new country quickly diminished. You quickly begin to feel at home, and are treated like part of the family. The classes are fantastic, they are thoughtfully and thoroughly put together, and the teachers are very knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach, as well as invested in your learning. Its not an overstatement to say that much of my outlook on life has changed because of the valuable lessons I have learned here. I will always be grateful that I chose this school and was able to spend my time with all of the amazing people that made it possible. I feel incredibly blessed that my journey through life took me here. From the new experiences, the knowledge I have gained, the personal growth, the sense of acceptance I have seldom found and the lifelong friends that I have made, I can earnestly say that this is a very special place. I sincerely hope I am able to visit again soon. Thank you so much for everything. Much love from Canada, Ryleigh.

I went in as a non-vegetarian and had no problem feeling full and satisfied with the vegetarian meals. I can't say enough about the teachers at this school. They were all so knowledgeable and sincere in their passion for teaching and making sure we all had a comfortable grasp of the material. I was not a serious yoga practitioner going in and this opened my eyes to so many different parts of yoga beyond asanas that made me was to dig even deeper. The administrative staff of the school was very helpful in answering any questions I had ahead of time and helping me to book transportation. The location of the school is on a hill with several cafes and small shops very close by and there is even more just a short walk down the hill to a more bustling area of town. There are many yoga schools in Rishikesh, but this one really checks all the boxes and I can't recommend it enough if you are looking for an all inclusive experience.

    "One of the Best decisioni have every made 😍"

    Rishikesh Yogkulam has a traditional approach to Yoga Teacher Training Course but at the same time coherent with today’s needs. The teachers are truly amazing, they are knowledgeable, they teach from the heart and they are very ethical in their interactions.

    The main purpose for me was to regain confidence in my body, go back to a disciplined life and integrate yoga as a whole to my daily life. Mission accomplished.

    I breath better, I have more sattvic thoughts and the whole system feels rejuvenated.

    I will definatley come back again to do my 300 hrs Yoga teacher training course with them, lots of love ❤️

    I recently did my 200h YTT at the Rishikesh Yogkulam Ashram and it has been an awesome experience! All teachers are very knowledgeable, supportive and just beautiful souls. I really felt like being in a lovely, big family. The service was very good (especially the food), everyone was very eager and the organized tours were a nice change from the daily training routine. I would come back anytime and can highly recommend Rishikesh Yogkulam Ashram. Go for it 🤩💪

    It was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself, on leaving I feel like I’ve shed many skins and came out the other side a new person who is much calmer, more content, at peace and ready to do some good in this world. I made friends for life and felt like part of the Rishikesh Yogkulam family immediately. I was there for the 200 hour YTT, and can’t recommend it enough. I will be back to complete my full 500 hours here. It’s located in the Himalayan foothills of Rishikesh. The location is so unique, surrounded by pure nature, eating food that’s grown nearby and showering in water from the nearby waterfall. The teachings are traditional Hatha with philosophy and anatomy studies and yogic cleansing, asana, meditation and pranayama. It was a deeply spiritual experience which was what I personally took from it, but whatever you are seeking I’m sure you will find it here. X

    "Wonderful experience of my life ❤️"

    Rishikesh Yogkulam provided the most wonderful experience of my life, I’ve learned so much with my staying there. The teachers are amazing people, always so helpful and truly knowledgeable! I couldn’t have asked for more, the staff was always ready to cater to our needs and to solve any inconveniences we had. The kitchen staff made some amazing food, the school is a really clean space and has a peaceful atmosphere. I will be back soon for my 300hr and I can’t wait to see all of those friendly faces again! I wholeheartedly recommend this school to whomever is looking for a safe, comfortable and wholesome yoga training in India. 10/10 ❤️

    ""My second time, and hopefully not my last""

    I and my friend did a 200 hours YTTC at rishikesh yogkuam. From the moment I signed up, everything went smooth - thanks to Hope for her proactiveness in communication and looking after everything. Since we arrived at the beautiful yoga school, the hospitality and warmth of our Hosts made us feel we were part of a bigger family and felt home away from home. Best indian food was served every day with choices of fresh local fruits. I still miss the delicious food and those waffles and banana bread from breakfast thanks to Kitchen staff, they were always happy to help and cater to different food preferences. The teachers - each of them were a gem. Very knowledgeable and committed. The course content was carefully selected with the right mix of theory and practice. The timetable kept us busy from 6 am until 8 pm. But despite the intense schedule - I thoroughly enjoyed every class. As every class had something interesting to offer. It felt like the teachers were there for a cause rather than a job. Everyone at the school was committed to make our stay perfect. We were ready to extend our stay but had non-refundable flights booked for further travel. I highly recommend that you take YTTC here. It's intense but every moment spent at the training will be memorable. You will come back with a whole new perspective about life. Namaste 🙏

    A beautiful training into the heart of yoga The course content: Love the variety and depth that the course goes into. From yoga philosophy to anatomy to meditation and asana classes, I feel like I learned so much in just 3 weeks. The course is well-organised with scheduled time for self-practice too. It was an immersive experience and every day was filled with laughter and learning. I had so much fun -- really happy I chose this course. The teachers/organisers: Everyone was so caring throughout the whole course, I felt really supported and safe under their guidance and expertise. The organisation was excellent, well-communicated and planned. The venue: Really fantastic space to go deeper into your practice. Beautiful location surrounded by nature with sustainability at its the heart. The staff go out of their way to help you with your needs and the food is delicious. The joy is in the little things, such as different herbal teas and juices each day. The excursions are a definite bonus too. Overall, if you are looking for a yoga teacher training course in rishikesh belive me this school the best choice you will make, that is rooted in the spiritual ethos of yoga.

    I had my 200h Yoga Teacher Training at rishikesh yogkulam and i can highly recommend this school. The whole team is knowledgeable, kind, and loving, it was a pleasure. The schedule is well organized, I got lot’s of material, and always answers to my questions. But not only did I learn a lot, I also enjoyed it immensely. The atmosphere and overall experience is worth every cent. I consider doing my 300hrs Training with this school, also. Thanks to Hope, who organized it all, to the teachers, and to the amazing cooking team who fed us with super delicious vegetarian and vegan food in endless variations!

    "Amazing learning experience"

    Without any hesitation, I want to state that Rishikesh Yogkulam is an absolutely amazing place for personal development and growth in yoga. I have been choosing among several yoga schools in Rishikesh to complete my 200 YTTC but made a decision in a favour of Rishikesh Yogkulam based on their amzing reviews. on top of that, the school is located close to the ganga river with stunning mountain view and at the same time accessible to all necessary shops, stores, cafes, and restaurants only couple minutes away. I have just finished my course and I am writing this review full of excitement and very fresh emotions. Undoubtedly, it was an absolutely incredible experience that exceeded all of my expectations. I really couldn’t wish for better teachers and gurus, for a more amazing group of people that I was sharing my yoga journey with, for a greatly executed schedule and classes that I was attending with great joy and interest to learn more every day, and for unforgettable experiences and energies I had a chance to live through while the span of the course. the teachers and all the staff members indeed felt like a family and became one. Very friendly, loving, hospitable, and helpful. Everyone in the group was going through their personal adventure with its ups and downs, but everyone received special attention and care needed. I can’t stress more how much I enjoyed my yoga teacher training in Rishikesh Yogkulam and how highly I recommend this wonderful place! Namaste 🙏

    "500-hour TTC Oct./Nov. 2022 – loved it :)"

    Before I joined the program I had been practicing Yoga for about a year and didn't have a lot of experience with topics like meditation, pranayama or philosophy. My motivation for coming here was to deepen my own practice and learn more about these topics. And I cannot put into words how much this experience has helped me on my path. The classes are engaging, paced very well and detailed. They positively changed my view of the world and I learned more than I could ever have imagined, as the teachers are very competent, inspiring and truly enjoy sharing their knowledge with us. They and the rest of the staff are always happy to help; when I hurt myself, they immediately arranged for transport to a doctor's office and helped with the translating, buying of medicines etc. The atmosphere in general is very positive and after a week I already felt like part of a family – we played Uno after class to relax, had impromptu music/karaoke sessions on our Sunday excursions (which led us to amazing places!) and dance and film nights – and I found many friends here I hope to keep for life. I'm incredibly grateful that I chose this school and would recommend it 100%.

    I’ve recently completed my yoga teacher training at Rishikesh Yogkulam and it was the most magical month of my life. It exceeded any expectations that I had. It has the most family feel to it and the love and joy spreads through to everyone who attends the course. The quality of the teaching was extremely high and their knowledge and enjoyment of teaching really shines through. The rooms were perfect with a massive bed and very clean. The schools staff were fantastic, cooked amazing food and were super helpful if anything was needed. You will leave yogkulam feeling amazing, knowledgable and happier than ever before. I was a solo female traveler and felt completely safe. Overall, I couldn’t have picked a better place to do my teacher training. Rishikesh Yogkulam is the best in Rishikesh and I feel so lucky to have been taught by so many amazing people.

    " Beautiful Experience"

    Rishikesh Yogkulam is not just a school, this is a universe in itself. I’m so happy I decided to do my 200 hours teacher training course from Rishikesh Yogkulam. Since there are so many schools in Rishikesh, it could be very overwhelming to choose one which you won’t regret.

    I decided to go with my intuition and joined this one. (Also, all the reviews were really positive.) I’m so glad to have been here, I met so many nice people, made friends, learnt so much not just about yoga but also about yoga philosophy. All the teachers are highly knowledgeable and teach you a lot about life without measuring. For me, it was a life changing experience and I’ve promised myself to do 300 hours from here next year.

    Rishikesh Yogkulam is a home of love. This school has a tremendous positive vibes, the moment you enter in the school you feel it. Every day home made fresh cooked food, daily routines you follow, friendly staff and professional classes, cozy rooms and the most positive environment. You feel Like you are at home, accepted with open arms here. Highly highly recommend this school.

    School workers and teachers are very competitive and devoted to their job. Students get to experience not just the learning process of Yoga, but true inner changes and blisses. Everyone connects on a deeper level and learns from each other. It is a life changing experience if you fully submerge and open your mind fully.

    I had a total blast in this school that can not even be described if not experienced by it’s own self and I will be grateful for this my whole life. That’s why I already plan my way back here to India again. 🙏 🧚‍♀️✨🙏🧘🏼‍♀️

    Rishikesh is a beautiful place where you will enjoy walking around as it's 100% safe and people are very nice.

    My private room was perfect, better than expected, large, clean, full of storage.

    The food was good and in quantity, a lot of efforts were done to please our taste buds, and I definitely felt the benefits of such a well balanced and healthy diet on my body.

    The teachers were great, passionate, caring, dedicated to students, helpful.

    It was a very challenging month, physically, mentally, emotionally... but it was worth every minute! I recommend Yogkulam to anyone willing to live a fulfilling and life changing experience.

    Vera Luftensteiner

    from Thailand, December 2022

    The yoga teacher training at Yogkulam was one of the most life-changing and amazing experiences I have had so far. I enjoyed every single day of the training and the teachers are extremely competent and provided us with incredibly valuable knowledge in many different fields that are priceless. I prolonged my stay to 24 days instead of 12 days since I liked it so much from the first day on and it was not a problem. The food is amazing and they provide a very well-balanced and nutritious diet with different dishes every day. Another thing I highly appreciate is the fact that they have a professional photographer who captures the experience of the participants during the training. The location is right in the center of Rishikesh but because of that it can also be rather loud and when I did my course, there was a construction right in front of the building but that’s India and it is part of the experience in my opinion.🙃 I can recommend this course to anyone and even if you do not intend to teach afterwards, it is a simply life-changing and you learn beneficial tools for a lifetime.

    The best experience I’ve ever had. I came to Rishikesh with no expectations and chose Rishikesh Yogkulam based on reviews and modules and duration.

    The location is great as it’s very accessible to different parts of Rishikesh. Accommodation has everything you need to make your stay easy. Within 3 weeks , you feel like you have grown to have discipline as a part of your life. Teachers and staff help you to grow a new prospective about almost everything. Teaching methods are great. It’s a family school that treats each and every student like a family. Staff care and do their best to assist you in every thing that you need. As I write this, I have finished my 200 hours training and it was beyond my expectations. Thank you the entire team of Rishikesh Yogkulam for such a amazing experience of my life.

    A once in a lifetime experience, very well crafted and packaged with a lot of love and affection. The team is motivated towards helping everyone achieve the collective goal. 360 degree perspective on the entire circle of Indian philosophy which gives a deeper understanding of what you are doing and why you are doing.

    Even after the course ends you may leave physically but mentally you are still in Yogkulam.

    "Yog +Kulam = Yoga Family "

    When it comes to Yoga, any place that manages to touch you internally , be it mental or emotional , is a good place to learn and to be grateful for and Rishikesh Yogkulam is 1 such place. The people of this place, who manage it, run it & teach here- they are a family and they make you their family by the love & responsibility they share for their students. I'm someone who has done multiple TTCs and yet I was able to learn so much more especially from the Asana classes that are really good, technical & detailed. The excursions that they took us on are going to stay with us forever. The extra activities like sound healing and Kirtan were amazing experiences that were healing on so many different levels. We'll forever be grateful to Amit , Ella , Pankaj , Jittu , Ritu , Deepa , and the staff for their kindness and support.

    May you get everything that we got and then some more..

    Love and Hugs🤗

    "i will definitely come back again❤️"

    Without any hesitation, I want to state that Rishikesh Yogkulam is an absolutely amazing place for personal development and growth in yoga. I have been choosing among several yoga schools in Rishikesh to complete my 200 YTTC but made a decision in a favour of Rishikesh Yogkulam based on their complex curriculum, variety of different disciplines, beautiful and comfortable facilities, as well as cool excursions and activities. On top of that, the school is located in a very cool and convenient area of Rishikesh with stunning nature, hikes, and waterfalls, and at the same time next to the authentic buzz of the streets and necessary shops, stores, cafes, and restaurants only couple minutes away. And, what was also very important for me is the very affordable price of this course, which was cheaper than lots of other programs with a shorter duration, worse accommodation, and a limited number of classes and disciplines.

    I have just finished my course and I am writing this review full of excitement and very fresh emotions. Undoubtedly, it was an absolutely incredible experience that exceeded all of my expectations. I really couldn’t wish for better teachers and gurus, for a more amazing group of people that I was sharing my yoga journey with, for a greatly executed schedule and classes that I was attending with great joy and interest to learn more every day, and for unforgettable experiences and energies I had a chance to live through while the span of the course.

Teachers are grounded in this way of life and expert in sharing the knowledge in a comprehensive way. They have absolutely inspired me for my teaching career in the future. I really enjoy the fact that Rishikesh Yogkulam is for everyone. You don’t have to be already a yogi. You just need an open heart and an open mind to adapt to this yoga culture and this spirituality. I am thankful for all the staffs and co-teachers working for this school who are always there to help us. I learned a lot and have acquired the beauty of this yoga lifestyle. I just want to say thank you Rishikesh Yogkulam.

    All teachers are very competent on their assignments. Pankaj is an excellent Yoga teacher. There's always somebody there to help you. During the whole stay, Amit or Ella were there in case we had questions. The kitchen team were receptive to comments, and personally I asked for non gluten meals, and they were cooking special things for me as well as for vegans. The activities we did on the weekends were also nice. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. All an all is a really nice school. I recommend 100%.

    I highly recommend this place for your YTTC. These guys are amazing! They were all very attentive from the moment I arrived and during my entire stay after the course. The team's energy is exceptional and excellent at what they do. My class was four people, which made it easier to focus and get more personalized attention from the instructors.

    The location is perfect to walk to nearby attractions and enjoy the cafes and activities in Rishikesh. The room/bathroom was very comfortable, spacious, cool and clean. The food was delicious, and you can always explore nearby restaurants for variety options. The excursions were super fun as a team!

    In the area you will find amazing organic products and ayurvedic massages, etc., which you will need for your sore muscles while taking the course.

    As a heads up, it can get busy, crowded and loud in the streets walking traffic with festivals, motor beeps, monkeys and cows or especially with nearby construction, so I recommend bringing earplugs.

    Overall, I highly recommend this experience. Come with a flexible, patient, open beginner's mind and no expectations and you will have an amazing time at this school and in India!!

    "Happy to choose Rishikesh Yogkulam💖"

    Namastè to every soul looking for a Yoga TTC in Rishikesh!

    I just finished my 200 hours by Rishikesh Yogkulam-(Yoga Family).

    When I hear people saying:" oh TTC change my life" I couldn't actually really understand why for everything this month was so Powerfull. Now that I have experienced and practices, I can say that for me, never in my life before I have taken one full month for myself, to go deeply into myself and better know me. That is actually what yoga is and bring you, here in the best way possible:

    Young, professional and qualify teacher are waiting to share their knowledge with you!

    It seems an advertise, I know, but it's actually what you will find here ( they didn't pay me, I swear!). When I was looking for a school I start asking people and everyone was given me a different advise, so I was becoming crazy and just looking on the website every school seems amasing ( actually marketing reach also this holy place).

    I find out a good girl from my country that take so much time for me helping me to compare the different schools and we end up on choosing Rishikesh Yogkulam.

    So I want to thanks all the teacher of the school because from everyone I have learned so much.

    So beautiful lost soul looking for a TTC comes to Rishikesh Yogkulam before this young guys become too famous and increase their price !

    Rishikesh Yogkulam,

    Not just a yoga school but a Family in India!

    "One beautiful month "

    Reflecting back from home on that one month spent in Rishikesh Yogkulam I could not be any happier about my choice of school. What I loved the most about it were the people (including my dear classmates:) ). As their name shows (Yogkulam), we indeed were like a family, I felt safe, understood, loved, and cared about, a must-have when it comes to learning and growing. All the teachers were professionals, walking their talk, and at the same time very wise, fun, and gentle human beings, with whom was not hard to end up friends. :) Everybody around was kind, friendly, and helpful, including the cooks, who made sure we always have enough of that super delicious food. :)

    I loved that when I mentioned how much I loved to learn some Bollywood dances, they made it happen without any problem, and we had so much fun!:) (I sure did:)) ).

    There are many things I would love to share here because it was a very rich month, rich in beautiful experiences, knowledge, new friendships, and realizations, but everybody has to experience it on their own. But for this, it is very important to choose a school, which cares about the students and about their learning and experience. For that, I could recommend Rishikesh Yogkulam from the bottom of my heart, they were the perfect match for me. I can't wait to implement all the new things I learned there, live a more yogic lifestyle, and pass this knowledge to those who need it. Thank you so much for this unforgettable month! :)

    Undergone 200 hrs TTYC here in May 2022 batch. One looks for a clean, hygienic and ventilated place with a view of the mountains and this is the place. The food is good and staff will address for any requirement. The course programme is well structured. All the teachers take keen interest individually to correct the postures and answering the questions. Pranayama, meditation, philosophy and mantra class makes you learn something new every single day and aids in holistic learning and growth. I used to look forward for all the classes and 24 days have passed at the blink of an eye. The excursions included visit to Kunjapuri Temple, Beatles cave and River rafting which will leave one with an enriching experience. The certification besides the River Ganga was cherry on the top! The kand sound healing made Kirtan he course even more memorable. The yoga hall is fully ventilated, and the open terrace on the roof is my favorite place to be at! Shops for basic requirements and fruit shops are located just besides the school. The school is surrounded by good cafes and Laxman jhula is at walk-able distance for quick shopping!

    A great school for 200 hrs TTYC! Good luck guys!

    Thank you Amit Ji and the yogkulam family for making the experience a memorable one!

    "A life changing experience🥰"

    I did a 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training Course in Rishikesh Yogkulam. It is really an experience I will keep close to my heart. I met so many amazing people, including the staff working at the school. From the cleaning and cooking staff, to the manager and administrative people, they were super helpful and kind. Every time I needed something they were always very diligent and never made feel dubious about asking for anything, contrary, they really cared for my comfort. The teachers also have an extraordinary human quality, and if there is time, although usually there was not much, it is so interesting to hear their own personal stories and approach of yoga.

    Also the food was amazing, specially as a vegan. Usually the food was vegetarian but i explained my situation them so they prepared the vegan food for me, the food was delicious😋, there was so many varieties on our food.

    I would definitely recommend this to people who are looking to do their first TTC program and if you come, not to come in winter season. Maybe before October or after February. It is an amazing opportunity to bond with different people and to start to explore the yoga world❤️.

    "I will come back again!"

    I was very lucky finding this place through a friend of a friend that was in Rishikesh before.

    I had an amazing time here and learn a lot.

    The teachers and staff are a blasst and the location is nice.

    Group is nice and small. We were 6 in total.

    So a lot of personal contact en guidance is there.

    200 hours YTTC will not be enough to become a teacher but it will help you on your Journey to explore, learn and experience more into the Yoga lifestyle.

    I will come back again!

    "Lovely place with lovely people "

    Great vibes, small group, good food, amazing people, good quality of yoga lessons (Hatha, Ashtanga and meditation). We did rafting for the excursion and the staff was very helpful for everything (taxi, etc). Can only recommend! Thanks to all of the team! I had a amazing time.

    "Nice, dedicated, knowledgeable, skilled teachers"

    A modern yet authentic way of teaching. The teachers are kind, patient, skilled, passionate, keen to share and dedicated. Each question is answered. Every detail (alignment, adjustment, anatomy...) is perfectly clear and always properly explained. Students feel really confident on everything they learn with the school.

    "I don't even want other people to know about this treasure "

    I'm not joking about the title but the guys at Yogkulam taught me about karma, so I have to tame my egoistic nature for now :D

    The teachers, who I would consider to be my friends now (if they like it or not), are the nicest and funniest people. They truly live by the name of the school "Yogkulam" which translates as "yoga family". I really felt their passion for what they're doing, getting across their knowledge in a very structured and clear way, while always making sure that there are no questions and uncertainties left. As a german I can definitely say that these guys are super efficient professionals. They truly care for you as a person and give you as much as they can for your time being there. I left my YTT inspired, full of appreciation and gratitude for this experience with the plan to come back for the 300 hours training. Thank you for everything! You guys are precious <3

    ""I recommend this course with Rishikesh Yogkulam ""

    Caring staff ....it’s scary travelling on your own, Amit's communication before I traveled was awesome, fast responses and he considered all my needs. They did everything they could to make my stay comfortable and happy. I enjoyed my time, certainly be prepared for an intensive schedule, Ashtanga was harder than I anticipated but Jittu ji was a perfect Ashtanga teacher, very patient with me, to master the correct postures and always with a smile but also mindful of my ailments , knee injury etc. Amit Ji was extremely attentive, always there to accommodate any of our needs, health concerns, taxi’s,amazing excursions organised eg sunrise in Himalayas, yoga on the Ganga, Bollywood was so much fun. Felt like from cleansers to the cooks we were all part of a family, school was catered for perfectly, location great close enough to walk to cafes shops but out the door you can walk up to the hills next to streams and waterfalls .All the teachers were incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about their practices. I came for the yoga but Alignment, Philosophy and meditation classes have taught me so much to take back and practice in my daily living i will never forget this experience and i hope one day i will able to visit again and practice with them in India.... thanks heaps to you all 😀💕🙏

    "Don't doubt, just go for it! You won't regret it!"

    Even though it’s only 24 days long, this is an intense & serious course & the teaching is of a very high standard. They worked us hard but I very much appreciated the opportunity to learn a great deal not only some yoga asanas but also about meditation, chanting, relaxation & health. It was also very helpful to meet so many different instructors. Unfortunately I cannot remember all their names - without exception, they were all excellent. I enjoyed the breath control classes & the trip to Vashistha the most I think. The Center is in a peaceful location with very little traffic noise. Just birds singing, monkeys chattering & cows mooing ! The standard of accommodation is very good indeed. Everything was spotlessly clean & there was lots of hot water for showering. There were ample quantities of freshly cooked & raw vegetarian food including watermelon & pineapple for breakfast. We served ourselves using stainless steel trays, cutlery & beakers which we washed up ourselves. There was hot & cold water, milk, chai masala and lemon & ginger tea to drink. The breathing and meditation classes were definitely the best thing of all and especially the relaxation at the end of the day with the best teacher! But none of this would matter if we didn't have the company of the other students from all over the world (we were 5 in total in the group) which made the retreat a lovely memory we will always carry with us! We highly recommend this retreat when visiting magnificent India!🙏

    "Great experience! "

    Yogkulam truly is a yoga family. Very quickly we became like a family, sharing thoughts, ideas, dreams and cultural exchange. It was such a humbling experience, the teachers were great, overall the course syllabus is very complete. I learned so much about the lifelong journey that yoga represents. It was challenging everyday but there Is nothing that I regret of coming to yogkulam. The food everyday was so delicious and nutritious, Sunil really took care of us. It was such a fresh and fun trainning because the teachers are young and very knowledgeable. Special thanks to Amitji and Jituji our asana and theory teachers, and my dear friends!

    "Best People, Best Experience, Best Yoga School"

    The location of Rishikesh Yogkulam is fantastic with views of the mountains. It is close to laxman jhula bridge and 10 min walk to mother ganga, every day i use to go to take a dip in the holi water of ganga. The facilities were clean, functional, and comfortable. In addition, the staff and owner of the school is very helpfull and caring people. The food was so delicious, its all fresh made and tates amzing, the chef made me fall in love with indian food. The teachers were incredibly nice and very knowledgeable and their teaching style, adjustments was all above what I had expected. Plus they were extremely friendly. As a warning for 'beginners or low-moderates", yoga instruction and classes are way more intense than your average studio class in france -- and that's exactly what I wanted. every sunday we were going to the 'excursion' its was amzing to see the sunrise from the mountains, waterfall treaking, river fating was so much fun, this place feels like home in 3 weeks, i was feeling sad to leave the place but i will definalty come back for my futhure yoga studies, I highly recommended this place and these people.

    "I wouldnt change anything about this experience"

    This course is physically mentally emotionally challenging but I would not have changed a thing. I’m new to this yogic journey & been praticing yoga for 2 years. I learnt Hatha & Ashtanga Vinyasa but much much more. Philosophy, Pranayama, Anatomy, Alignment, Teaching Methodology & Meditation. There was so much to take in & not much time in which to study & take in the sights of Rishikesh so I would say that if you can go & then spend some extra time then you will experience a beautiful spiritual land buzzing with life & vitality. The teaching is exceptional. The practical exam an hour of teaching your own class in your style using what you’ve learnt. The accommodation is basic but very neat and clean and the view from the rooms are amazing, you just come out of your room and see the himalayas in front of you. I personally think it’s good to live yogic life for a month.... the teachers and the saff of rishikesh yogkulam is amazaing and very helpfull they help you in everything. we were lucky to go to indian wedding with traditional sari and all its so much fun to attend indian wedding , lots of people, dance, and delicious food. the classes are well structured asanas are challenging jittu ji breaks you down, first few days its easy but than later on it gets challenging, anatomy and philosophy classes of amit ji so so good with the morden and traditional approach of yoga. and meditation classes of ella ji is very relaxing and releasing, i really enjoyed the experience.

    "Only place I can recommend to study yoga and that's Yogkulam"

    Wow!!! Having completed many courses in my life I left Yogkulam feeling inspired and wanting to learn more. The passion of ancient yogic knowledge oozes from the teachers who with love, respect and dignity hold true to what they believe and what they have been taught. They looked after my inflexible body and on my journey have knowingly or unknowingly taught me to respect and expand on the limitations which I have put on myself throughout my life. The course is well thought out with great teachings on all levels of the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual aspects of life. Be inspired, feel whole and let go. We create our own walls so when you are ready free yourself. There’s only one place I can recommend to study yoga and that is Yogkulam. Join the family.

    "Best Yoga Course Ever"

    Enrolling for this yoga course was one of the best decisions I have ever made.I wanted to deepen my knowledge about Yoga and I was also seeking meaning in my life and yoga journey. I am happy to say that I found what I was looking for: skilful and competent teachers that not only share their knowledge but also help you and give you advice according to your specific needs (not only with poses and alignment, but also with improving your teaching skills and increasing your knowledge)

    Every detail is carefully prepared to give us the best experience.

    Rishikesh Yogkulam is not only a yoga school but also a family.

    The sessions are thorough. teachers are incredible, knowledgeable and are always available to answer any questions. This course has been a life-changing experience for me. I highly recommend this yoga school!

    "So, so worth it."

    These teachers are such kind, supportive and incredible people. They possess so much knowledge, not just of yoga but of life and how certain changes and practices can influence our lives in such an important way. I learned a lot from this course and can’t wait to continue learning- I only wish it could have been in person!

    "What a wonderful and informative experience!"

    I was really positively surprised about how in depth and well organized the 200 hours Yoga teacher training course was.

    My expectations were to learn more about Yoga philosophy and maybe get some more insights into the how and why of some Asanas, but because the course took place online I didn't expect to learn much concerning alignment and other more hands-on parts of the practice.

    However, because all the teachers really cared about us students and our individual development, they always found a way to explain even more hands-on parts of the practice really well. The effort they put into organizing the course really showed because they managed to convey not just a great quantity of different information in a rather short time period, but also the quality of the classes was on a really high level. Talking to the different teachers it became clear that everyone cares and knows a lot about their respective teaching subject. All the teachers were always open for questions and even though the course was online, they all managed to create a productive and pleasant learning atmosphere.

    In the end, I ended up with so much more than I expected. I didn't only get to know the philosophy behind Yoga and managed to hold some Asanas I wasn't able to hold before, but I also developed a Pranayama practice that works for me, got so much input on how to teach meditation and learned that I really enjoy Yin Yoga.

    Thanks again to all teachers! I can highly recommend this Yoga school!

    "Amazing teachers and classes"

    I loved the whole experience and I truly recommend it to anyone that loves yoga. The teachers are full of knowledge and passion for Yoga and really know how to transfer the knowledge they have to the students. I feel so ready to start teaching my own students.

    This YTT has been like a 7-week Yoga retreat for me where I have been immersed in everything that has to do with Yoga. I now feel a huge need to spread the practice of yoga in the world.

    "300 hr ttc at Rishikesh yogkulam!"

    One of the best schools in Rishikesh. The best choice I could have made my for my second training, 300 hr ttc. What I valued most is the knowledge i gained throughout this month,that shaped my yoga journey. The teachers of yogkulam are well experienced, with a great understanding and always willing to help.

    The training took place in the heart of Rishikesh at a beautiful yoga shala. A special thank you to Amit Payal, who inspired me with his values of teaching.

    Thank you yogkulam family from the bottom of my heart.

    Kind regards

    "I received what I came for"

    All of the teachers are very knowledge able. I appreciated the energy all of the teachers brought in to help us motivate. They taught us what we need to know to become a good yoga teachers.

    The accommodation and location are really great. Food are also good but if you wish for something different or go out for a bit of shopping this location is perfect.
