If you are looking for a place with teachers truly teaching from their heart, amazing chefs and food, great accomodation, great administrative staff, that handles all requests you could have, well, then you have found the right place!

"amazing and unforgettable Yoga experience"

When I first looked up for schools on the website I immediately had a wonderful feeling with Vinyasa Yoga Accademy and immediately I got in touch with them. The answer I have got back was so amazing that I knew that this was my perfect choice. So within two days I booked the school and the flight and was so excited for my first trip to India!! The welcome at the airport, at the school I will never forget. Every single person has been like a family to me during the whole stay. I felt home. The place is quiet and close to the forest, but everything very close. The food has been prepared with so much love and dedication, incredible. Every day it was different during the whole stay. The centre provides filtered water which is excellent service. The excursions included where amazing! The hospitaity of all people has been very touching. All the people I met in the group have been the best I could ever expect. The teachers are amazing. Beeing so young but which such an excellent professionality, dedication, attention and positivity making all the classes so interesting I wished that the experience would never come to an end... I will always carry this experience in my heart as a treasure and really hope to meet all again on my spiritual path... yes now I know I have a spiritual family also in India. Thanks to all the people in the center and thanks to Rishikesh and their people, their culture, their love I always felt during this wonderful month. Very grateful forever. Namasté

"Yoga in Rishikesh"

From the very first email inquiry, to the facilities, the staff, the seven different instructors, every step of the way thus school exceeded my expectations.

"The best Yoga Teacher Training experience "

The staff were always available. The head of the school (and another few schools in the area) was ALWAYS available for us and showed us such humble grace and hospitality! An incredible human being. The school was very clean and in a lovely location away from the hectic main streets but still only a short walk to the shops and cafes. The teaching was top quality. I learned to much about life and myself and feel confident to teach.

I advise that you must throw yourself fully into the experience! Embrace the culture and rituals and you won't be disappointed.

"Nada es como lo anunciado"

Las clases de yoga eran completamente para principiantes por lo que estaban acordes a lo que yo esperaba: una introducción al yoga. El último día me permitieron quedarme 2 horas después del check out sin costó. El masaje gratis.
