Student Testimonials

Briel Driscoll, New York

Briel Driscoll

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.

Lalita MacDonnell - IYMS Yoga School in Rishikesh

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.

Yann Da Costa

Yann Da Costa - - IYMS Yoga School

IYMS Rishikesh, is a very good yoga school, very serious and involved in the wellbeing of their students and not only during the one month class. Some of the people there carry so much knowledge… I would want to say a deeply thanks for all of them : Siddhant, Sonu, Marta, Vivek, Papou, Gokul, Vikas and of course the others students who made my stay a wonderful time. So why just 4 stars ? Even if it’s very good, there are always some points that could be improved. For example, the food was more or less the same for the whole month. Anyway I’m so thankful for what happened during this time. Thank you very much.
