Rishikesh Yoga Teacher Training School Reviews (Testimonials)

I just finished my 500h ytt here. I’m so happy i chose Himalayan yoga association for my training because it was a totally transformational experience. The teachers are so knowledgeable and understanding, the management is always ready to help, the food is delicious, rooms are clean and spacious, the location is very close to city center but its still quite and peaceful with the view on Himalayas mountains. I met so many beautiful souls here. All the people that work at the school create an amazing atmosphere that makes the experience unforgettable! I was doubtful at first when the owners said that now its your family but after some time i felt it. Himalayan yoga association really became a family for me. It was hard to leave but I’m sure that I will be back soon ❤

Loved my time at HYA! It was one of the best months of my life. The teachers are so knowledgeable, understanding and patient, they socialise with the students and make us feel like a community. The food from the kitchen is so delicious and all prepared from the heart! I loved meeting the students from around the globe and sharing this wonderful experience with them. This school will provide you with not only physical work but emotional too, so that you can work on being not only a better yoga instructor but a better person to everyone around you.

Himalayan Yoga Association deserves the 5 star rating that it has. I searched way too long online through all the options for a school that “sounded good” but it all paid off. The teachers, their knowledge, the staff, the food, the environment and the location have all made my 200-hour YTTC a life changing experience. I’m already planning to go back for my 300-hour.

Absolutely amazing. I am so glad I decided to take my 300 hour TTC at Himalayan Yoga Association. The entire experience was enriching, fulfilling and enlightening. After a month, I feel like my practice and teaching have gotten exponentially better. I have improved as both a student of yoga and a teacher. The entire HYA family takes great care of each student. The course, schedule, teachers and experience were all unforgettable. If you are thinking about Rishikesh, definitely check Himalayan Yoga Association. _ The 300 hour training I took was authentic, detailed and thorough. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable in their subjects and actually practice what they preach. I would love to come back, but I know i’ll always have a home at HYA.

Yogi Himanshu Ji is an experienced teacher, humble & a thorough gentleman. He very well balances the physical aspects of yoga ie asanas & pranayam with the yogic philosophy from the yoga sutras. He has an excellent location, good facilities, congenial staff. Kirtans by the Bhakti Yoga Monks are an all time highlight of the opening & closing ceremonies with lots of singing & dancing in devotion.

I absolutely loved my experience at Himalayan Yoga Association. Amazing teachers! Very knowledgeable, but still so humble. The accommodation is very homey and clean.

I highly recommend Himalayan Yoga Association. I completed my 300 hour YTT here and I was impressed with the teachers, the accommodations, the food and the excursions that HYA arranged for us on Sundays. Great experience overall and well worth the investment.

If someone asks me about what Yoga-School to attend to learn authentic yoga sciences, ‘Himalayan Yoga Ashram (Rishikesh, India)’ immediately comes to my mind. The teachers there are very experienced and the acclaimed masters in their respective filed of knowledge – teaching is their very passion. The administrative and supporting staff are very pleasant and always ready to help you. A serene environment at the ashram adds to your learning pleasure while being there. . . . !!

Exceeds Expectations..There are no words to describe my experience with HYA. It was an inclusive and supportive enviroment with a great curriculum that will leave you feeling ready to safely teach. All of the teachers truly care about their students and there was great communication throughout the course. What I learned here was everything I hoped for in a yoga teacher training. The teachers are knowledgeable and inspiring.They opened my eyes and heart real meaning of yoga. A true immersion into an authentic yoga practice. The accommodations were clean and the food was also delicious satvic vegetarian meals. I very much enjoyed all of the Sunday excursions such as the waterfall, orphanage tour, and hiking to catch the sunset in the Himalayas. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn yoga philosophy, proper alingment, anatomy, meditation, pranayama and yoga asana. Special thanks to Himanshu, Vivek, Vipin, Ankit, Kirti, and all of the staff in HYA for making this an unforgettable experience.

When I think about my recent month at the HYA Ashram in Rishikesh, my heart opens up wide and i feel so much love and gratitude for everything I’ve learned in these 4 weeks. The teachers at HYA – all of them – did an most excellent job in sharing the ancient wisdom of India with us, pointing out that Yoga is far more than just a series of perfect Asana postures. It is the Unity of Body, Mind and Soul….our pathway to Liberation, the end of pain and suffering! We received guidelines on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life, directing the attention toward’s our health, while helping to acknowledge the spiritual aspect of our nature. The Ashram, located at a little riverbank, surrounded by mountains and trees is the perfect location to disconnect from life at home and the noise of the world. and the FOOD: I can honestly say that i have not ever eaten so yummi & healthy – consistently – for 4 weeks straight !!!!! (Shout out & Namaste to the amazing Kitchen crew!!) We went to the waterfalls, witnessed an incredible Himalaya sunrise and were able to connect with the children at a local Orphanage, where we were welcomed with so much love and curiosity. One of my personal Highlights were our Kirtan Nights, led by the kindhearted founder Himanshu Ji, a night of chanting, clapping und ecstatic dancing #ShivaShambo All I know now is that this is really just the beginning and i will be back in Rishikesh – very soon! Namaste 🙏🏼 and Thank You to Himanshu Ji and everyone at HYA – so honored to be part of the family 🌹

The Himalayan Yoga Association is a place of love. We are a family and we feel at home. I finished my 200 hours of YTT on October 28th … it was a very intense month. So many knowledge and experiences. The ashram is in the middle of nature and is very good because we breathe deeply and calmly. The asana classes are good and the teachers are very experienced. The alignment class is spectacular for our growth. I loved the scursions, they were good to know other parts of Rishikesh and to develop our social part. And to nurture relationships. Regarding food, we have 3 meals a day, and the food is good. To me it’s a bit spicy but that’s my personal opinion. Finally, I just add that what was missing throughout this beautiful month was a woman’s touch on the cleanliness of the rooms on the first day. But otherwise everything was ok. Gratitude for this experience.

With so many yoga school in rishikesh , all with great reviews, it was such a challenge to choose one… For some reason this one stuck out to me and I feel so incredibly blessed that the universe pulled me in this direction to attend this course. In fact, it is that same universe that is pulling YOU to read this review right this moment! Follow it ! Book this course and you will have a life changing experience with some of the best yoga teacher training in rishikesh has to offer.
Founders, Himanshu and Ajay, are both amazing and inspiring teachers, who have designed a course to take anyone from beginners to advanced to the next level in their yoga journey. The course is very well structured and the teachers are not only knowledgeable but know how to convey sometimes very difficult material in an easy to understand fashion. Ajay has the ability to take a seemingly complex lesson on anatomy and get the entire class involved, laughing and completely engaged. Never once did I or other students look at the clock!
The Yoga asana teachers here are by far the best yogis I have seen. As a beginner the first week was challenging but so rewarding! The teachers were with me every step of the way to help correct and guide my practice with each day. By the end of the program, I can certainly say that I have reached a level in my practice that I thought would take years!
The lodging was comfortable and the food was actually sooo good (I was nervous about the food since food is definitely a passion of mine!)
There is no need to search any longer. If you want a truly authentic, life changing experience, pick these guys. If you have any questions, feel free to direct message me and I will help answer any questions you might have !

I would like to share my experience with Himalaya Yoga Association this April for my 300 hour TTC Course in Rishikesh.  I really loved my time at this school and it was by far the best school that I have ever visited. All teachers are very professional, knowledgeable, kind and caring.  Every day at this school felt like a gift and the time passed so quickly! I can recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a friendly environment with first class teaching. Many thanks to everyone who made my stay so special!
Lots of love,

Ines Brendel
