Student Testimonials

I spent a month at IYMS Rishikesh for my teacher training course and I absolutely loved the experience: the place is calm and clean, with very comfortable private rooms w/bathroom, the people are friendly and sweet and treat you like family, and the teachers so good I couldn’t believe my luck. All subjects were given ample treatment, and a lot of things I had always just read about really started to make sense there. There’s even a resident doctor for any problem that might arise! Also I made a bunch of international, like-minded friends that I just can’t wait to visit around the globe!

Lovely, knowledgeable yogis at IYMS Rishikesh who put you and yoga above all else as priorities in teacher training. In-depth studies available here at an unbeatable price. Rishikesh is considered the World Capital of Yoga…unbelievable cultural and natural sites to explore including the nearby sacred Mother Ganges River as well as waterfalls, meditation caves and more. Totally heartwarming experience. Please say hello and namaste to IYMS Rishikesh’ Yogi Vivek when you visit…one of the best laughs and senses of humor that you might ever encounter on this planet we call home.

I absolutely loved this school. Yog is a lifestyle, a way of life, and most schools around the world do not capture this in their curriculum. IYMS Rishikesh is located center city of rishikesh, there is a most beautiful ashram. Beautiful garden and roof views. The rooms very clean and comfortable accommodation. For a price that is much more reasonable than other schools in the area! The food is traditional and absolutely delicious. I had a most wonderful time here and have made lifelong friends. The teachers are devoted to their lives in Yog and their passion shows in the classes. I hope those of you that look at this school, and sees this review can understand, even a little, how truly pure, authentic, as well as incredibly giving this school and it’s administrators are.

The people at IYMS Rishikesh are helpful and kind. I am still in touch with my teachers weeks after leaving the program. Lots of 1 on 1 feedback. The instructors were knowledgeable. I gained so much physical strength during my weeks in this program. We practiced meditation and chanting everyday in addition to two asana classes . Pranayama and philosophy were also taught every day. A wide spectrum was covered. The ashram environment was simple and peaceful, very close to the river and we were fed three meals a day. The rooftop view is amazing at the ashram. Ask to practice on the roof one day, we did and it was beautiful! On days off we had the option of going on some outings and those were enjoyable. Kind people. Top notch instruction. Wonderful experience.

IYMS Rishiikesh is a great place with supportive people. From airport pickup to every Yoga class you feel the personal touch in everything. The food, the people, everything is just wonderful. If you are planning to send someone to India for Yoga, it’s the best place. The ashram is located in the city and you can easily go to any place you want as there are a lot of tuk tuk that can take you anywhere.

I did my yoga teacher training here. The quality/price ratio was very good, especially since I have heard much worse things about other places. The teachers were great, the food was awesome and the atmosphere was nice at the ashram. Of course, there were times/days when all those things weren’t as good but there are always up and downs, that’s part of life.
