WOW experience !!! I am delighted and pleased to complete 200 hours Teachers training course from Rishikesh Yog Peeth. Yoga is connection between our body, mind and soul. I learned many things from here which changed my life completely. Mainly the people over there was very encouraging and cheerful. I enjoyed so much the lessons from great Guru's. I am surprised and impressed with the improvements in myself in such a short time. It all happened because of all knowledgeable and experienced teachers. Furthermore, classes were scheduled very effectively and efficiently with full utilisation of time. Everyone was very helpful & approachable from the management to the staff and ambience also well maintained giving the positive vibrations like homely environment with mouth watering food. Overall it was a WOW experience to me and i would greatly recommend to everyone. Thanks to RYP for such an everlasting experience

Traveling to India to learn yoga was the right thing to do for me. My concept of "yoga" was transformed from the Western physical activity to the spiritual Indian experience. It's a perfect introduction to the complex discipline that is Yoga--and it is explained in a friendly way. RYP made the experience a non pretentious process which I feel enabled me to understand the true meaning of yoga. I would totally recommend this course to anybody who is interested in learning about the self and Indian culture.

This yoga teacher training course was life changing. There are not many places you can go for a long period of time and learn about the nature of the world; the universe. I have been waiting for an opportunity such as this to come my way for many years now and am so happy to have experienced the intensive study with Rishikesh Yog Peeth. Best of luck to the organization in the future.

Lexi, August 2017

What a life-changing experience! An authentic and thorough training in many aspects of yoga. I am very grateful for my time at RYP. Highly recommended.

Grace, August 2017

One of the memorable experience of my life. words will be less to define my time there. The team that yogpeeth has is amazing,they so readily do everything that everyone asks for, without loosing the smile through out the day.
The rooms are nice and clean,good enough to stay there for a month and food was seasonal and local. Honestly i was not there for all that,that i have mentioned so far. So all this was extra bonus of my experience. I was there to study. Which is the next thing i can't stop myself to talk about. THE TEACHERS at yogpeeth are perfectly aware of what they do. Every single class is planned so well and has a purpose and the background set for next class. They are so much ready to share the knowledge that they have inside or outside of the class.I remember one thing said by one of the teacher, if the you are ready everything is a teacher so in the nutshell if you are curios to learn i highly recommend Rishikesh yogpeeth.

I attended my 200 hours and 300 hours YTTC at Rishikesh Yog Peeth, It was a life changing experience to me, all the Yoga teachers were well experienced, helping, phenomenal and the courses we learned ranged from asanas to pranayama to yogic philosophy and anatomy. The days were busy but well planned.
I will highly recommend this Yoga School to everyone who are looking for YTTC in India,

Nitesh, August 2018

I had completed 500 hours TTC from Rishikesh Yogpeeth & I must say It was one of the best decisions of my life so far.

Hema, August 2018

There is something special about Rishikesh Yogpeeth which cannot be done justice to, in a single testimonial.
As a former 200 YTT student of Rishikesh Yogpeeth, I testify that it is one of the best yoga schools in India.
I searched many yoga schools before committing to Yogpeet, and never regretted my decision even for a moment.
The teachers are highly competent and dedicated, the content and structure of the course very professional, the surroundings breathtakingly beautiful and the food and stay lend greatly to a yogic lifestyle.
I was particularly impressed by the philosophy classes which were informative, thought-provoking and inspirational. The asana classes while being intensive, allow students to gain in strength and confidence in their practice.
I describe my experience at Rishikesh Yogpeeth as extraordinary and transformative and highly recommend it for aspiring yoga teachers as well as seekers.
Thank you Yogpeeth.

Hana, August 2018

I've just completed my 200HR TTC at Rishikesh Yog Peeth. It was an amazing experience. The teachers are extremely knowledgable and very helpful. All the staff at Yog Peeth were very helpful and made my stay very comfortable. The course is very well-structured, with a focus on personal-development. The asana lessons in the morning and evening were the high-point for me since I was able to further my yoga practice and grow in flexibility in just one month. Also, the freshly cooked food was delicious. This experience wouldn't have been the same had it not been for the amazing people I met here, friends from all around the world, teachers, mentors. If you are thinking of taking a yoga training certification, this is the best place to do so!

Anca, August 2018

Francessa, August 2018

That 1 month was amongst the best time of my life. Loved and loved even more everything happened there. Loved the way teachers taught every minute things and the love they pondered on each student, this would be the best decision of your life if you go here.
I can not stop without mentioning about these two teachers DEEPA,VIJEET They were incredible, what a depth of knowledge what simplicity and what not...they have everything
delicious simple food, homely environment, class hospitality, caring people...RYP I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. Thank you for everything and taking out the best out of me..

Student, August 2018

A month in my life where i witnessed a change in myself. Yoga through Rishikesh Yogpeeth was one experience i feel i will always cherish and build upon. i completed my 200 Hrs TTC here thanks to the continuous support from the teachers and the staff at Yogpeeth, who were always more than helpful towards making our stay and course wonderful.
The first few days feel out of the ordinary as one still has to adjust to this simple way of living. The asana practice in the first week built the foundation for strength for the upcoming weeks. Any contact with the teachers - be it Deepa, Neha, himanshu or Vijeth left me happy , smiling and ready for the next day.
Personally, in my group - everyone applauded their efforts , towards their food preparation, cleanliness, knowledge of teachers and guidance towards each meticulous detail. Even after completion of the course, the teachers have been very kind to help with queries at all times of day . It would never be enough to thank the complete team towards making the experience successful. I hope to visit back to complete the 500 Hrs TTC soon. Highly recommended for everyone.

Student, August 2018

One of the best things that Ive done in my life. Loved the philosophy classes !! Now I work as full time yoga teacher with more than 13 classes per week and Im already planning to do my 300 hrs in Rishikesh Yog Peeth next year. From the people, students, classes and environment...was all what I was looking for. On my free time I did extra practice or study so really is up to you how much you get from the training. I love the way they teach traditional practice, I have already sent few of my students to do the training there. Love it !!!

Clarissa, August 2017

A unique and memorable experience that incorporated the essential elements relating to the mind, body and spirit of yoga. This course does an excellent job at contextualizing the concept of Hatha Yoga and its founding philosophy, while you develop physically and technically as an instructor. It broadens your understanding of each asana and pranayama technique connecting the body, breath and mind. I am extremely glad I chose this course, as it is located in a beautiful location and instructed by well-intentioned instructors that embody the spirit of true Yoga.

Jocelyn, August 2017

"Anandavan Yog Peeth: I am so grateful for all I have learned in just 4 weeks. My personal practice is transformed into something I am proud to call my own. I have built my confidence to teach yoga and continue to learn on my journey as a modern day yogi. Deepti, Nikhil and Abhisehk, you have touched my life in a way that has inspired me to grow as an individual. You are family to me."

Miyaka, August 2017

"Rishikesh Yog Peeth holds a very special place in my heart. While I came for yoga I returned from India with a much deeper understanding of life. Asana classes were rigorous and fun at the same time and it opened up my body and spirit towards meditation and appreciation. A year later, back in Manhatten I still look back at Rishikesh Yog Peeth with joy and respect. You will feel lucky it came on your path ,like I did."

Truke, August 2017

Highly recommend this 200hr YTT. Incredible, fun teaching! A great mix of western and eastern, traditional and modern thinking yoga philosophy teaching. Well experienced yoga teachers of asana, meditation, pranayama and yoga philosophy. You will learn about yourself and your beliefs. A great life adventure.

Genma, August 2017

The new way of learning yogic life living experience with caring people on the path of yoga.

Tilak, August 2017

My first time in Rishikesh was filled with all kinds of rediscovered emotions but also physical and mental struggle. Anyhow, staying at Yog Peeth made life easier. A six days a week exercise, study and meal schedule helped to overcome personal issues and showed the beauty of a disciplined day. A privet bedroom and bathroom was provided and the people working around Surya and Sarika were glad to help with whatever was needed or needed change to keep everybody calm and happy at all times. The food provided was always on time and in plenty.

This comfort allowed me to go further every day with a smile. I felt very much looked after and cared for.

In the same manner, the teachers at Yog Peeth would gently guide me with comfort through my physical and mental blocks. There is no force stronger than the energy coming from these people and if you are open and ready for it, they are able to show you a different state of being. 

Yog Peeth is for everyone. And every individual will get what he or she is in need of. In the end - take it as an experience or let it change your heart.

Tamara, August 2017

This is the best desicion I have ever made! It is really great feeling to learn yoga in India where it was born, especially in the capital of yoga in Rishikesh. It is a fact that Rishikesh Yog Peeth is the best school in Rishikesh with amazing single room accommodation with attached bathroom and really delicious meals. Teachers are inspiring and they experienced what they teach! My mind and my body changed in a good way and i am aware of it now. I changed the way i am breathing by pranayama classes. This is the best start to go into yoga path. I will come back for 300hr for sure.

Burak, August 2017

One of the best yoga school in Rishikesh with awesome teacher. The best place to learn about your oneself, physical mental n spiritual practice n grow as a good human being.

Dhirendra, August 2017

While contemplating where to complete your Yoga Teacher Training (YTT), all you can do is trust. You trust the reviews, you trust the people at the school with whom you communicate, and you trust that travelling the distance to India will be worth the time and money invested. I recently earned my 200-hour certification from Rishikesh Yog Peeth, and I can honestly, absolutely, and without hesitation say that it was worth every penny. The program cost about half the price of most YTT courses in the U.S. Yes, you pay the difference in travel and visa expenses, but that additional cost gives you a cultural adventure that cannot be replicated in the U.S., or your respective country. The teachers are all Indian, and were raised with the philosophies that they teach at the school. They are firmly rooted and passionate in their convictions that yoga is not about "asana" but a way of being, a way of melding the body, mind, and soul. My body felt soothed every time I left an asana class with master teachers Narendra, Deepa, or Jeet. My mind was nourished with the philosophy and anatomy teachings of Roshan, the director. Everything fused together perfectly at the end of the six weeks. The staff are friendly and helpful, attending to your every need with care. The accommodations are private enough to be alone if you wish, but public enough to form a community bond with your fellow students. Again, I would not hesitate to repeat this experience, and I'm already considering returning for their 300-hour course. Namaste to everyone at RYP!

Anne, August 2017

I felt like I'm part of a family at Rishikesh Yog Peeth. The best anatomy and philosophy classes, the best asana classes. The staff is very helpful, the accommodations, all the meals & activities where included & perfect. Thank you again for everything Rishikesh Yog Peeth , lots of love, Valentin xoxoxoxo

Abhayaranya is an attitude of Independence...

Roshan, August 2017

One of the best places to learn everything you need to know about yoga. My experience at Rishikesh Yog Peeth was life changing. If you are looking for a holistic, well rounded understanding of yoga, this is the place to get it.

Ragini, August 2017

Best yoga school to learn about yoga and self confidence.

Rajesh, August 2017

When I first arrived in Rishikesh for the 39th Yoga Teachers Training (June-July 2012), I was surprised about all the facilities provided by Rishikesh Yoga Peeth. The staff was helpful and friendly, the food was great and the accommodation surpassed all my expectations. The teachers Roshan and Sanjay stated an example of competence and knowledge and the chance to get to know with such amazing people from all over the world was wonderful. I was surprised as well about all the activities that the school offered us in our free time. Rishikesh Yog Peeth was one of the most enriching experiences of my life so far and for sure I will definitely go back to the place where I was honored to get my first yoga certification. Nowadays, gaining more and more experience into the Yoga business, I can see how important was to have had the chance to join the yoga teacher training course at Rishikesh Yog Peeth. Thank you all.

Anne, August 2017

I had such an amazing time at Rishikesh Yog Peeth. I attended the TTC in April 2011 and am still sending people I meet who are interested in yoga in the direction of Rishikesh. The staff was always kind and helpful and I made some incredible friends along the way. This was my first time in India and was a great bridge (literally!) between Western society and India. I cannot wait to go back and do my 500 hours training! I'm happy to answer specific questions anyone might have. I know the school has change quite a bit in the year and a half since I was there, but there are a lot of things that will never change in Rishikesh, and I think that's what I love about it so much. Namaste!

Nicki, August 2017

Yoga Teacher Training at Rishikesh Yog Peeth (Summer 2011) .. ...was a great mental, physical, cultural experience all in all .. was a unique opportunity to meet people from all over the world which made the whole thing even more inspirational ... gave strong background on anatomy and physiology of the human body (VERY IMPORTANT) and Hindu philosophy, with room for interesting discussion and questions ... as well as a lot of Asana practice (and other elements of practical yoga) ...was generally done well and with dedication by all teachers and staff ... was done by Yog Peeth Yoga School who have a convincing apporach ... meant doing yoga in a very hot time of the year (some might prefer cooler seasons) ... definitely left students with deeper understanding of a lot of things, interesting questions and ideas and lasting, fond memories
