I'm so greatfull to have found vinyasa yoga school and i really enjoyed the 200 hrs of ytt.The way they welcome the students with all the mala's and tillak on forehead is amaizing and full of respect.I think the course nourishes both physically and mentally by all the aspects of yoga,meditation,mantra and shatkarma.I loved both the morning and evening class of asanas by vikas and sareeta, but be prepared your bodies will ache most of the time.All the teachers are pretty focused on what they teach and have a great knowledge of what so ever you put on questioning them.The yogic diet which they served was healthy and light to digest.The shutkarmas were really difficult but sareeta helped me go through it all the time.Talking about the mantra and meditation class that i experienced was the most blissful part of my training journey.I really wish to pass on my salutation to all the teachers and the owner for a well structured training programme..
Although I met a fantastic bunch of people. The course itself was terrible, teachers barely turned up, or fell asleep in class. The facilities barely worked, and the kitchen had vegetables stored on the filthy floor with cockroaches coming out of the bags.
Hi.. my stay in this school during this month for yoga training was amazing.I loved the teachers ,The staff is so freindly nd helping,the owner of the school is so kind nd helping nd was always prompt to solving our problems... I loved the indian food at the school nd im sad not to get this type of food back home, i loved the room i had with a beautiful ganga view, i loved the yoga room which luckily had three air cons with a beautiful ganga view and view of the mountains felt like a heaven to me it was a complete bliss this whole month the meditation teacher is amazing the Asana teacher truly rocks..the theory was always intersting with wonderful teachers... nd thanks to the owner of this school who made this experience a true peace nd bliss for me, im sad leaving memories of the school nd all this lovely ppl in my school nd rishikeshh love uuu..... overall the best school...... the best experience i ever had
While my YTT course provided me with life long friendships, and with valuable knowledge, I would not recommend this school to any of my friends. I want to make it clear that the teachers were outstanding, as well as the staff. However, the owner is one of the most unprofessional persons I have ever dealt with. The school's website is full of lies. The change their website constantly, due to all the complaints that they get from the students. For the price of the course I was expecting much more than what I got. I talked to students from other schools (who were paying almost half of the price) who were given A/C private rooms, working Wifi, a balance diet, and excellent training. The room that I was given had had a fan that only worked half of the time (in the middle of an extremely hot summer), broken bathroom, no Wifi. Even after complaining to the owner, no apologies were given. He should not own a school, as he does not care about the students.Sadly, the negative experience that I had with the owner makes me feel like I was robbed, lied to, and taken advantage of. Do not believe anything that is on their website, and do you research into other schools. There IS another school in Rishikesh that offers vinyasa training, and I have heard great things about it. While I got to learn a lot, and met amazing people, as a student who saved for years to be able to afford this, it saddens me that an owner of a yoga school could treat his students the way he treated us.
I was here for the July-August teacher training. I want to make it very clear that the teachers and resident hotel staff are all good people, who made my experience, overall, a positive one. Without the teachers and hotel staff, this teacher training would be awful. However I want to warn other people of what this school is actually like - 1) there was no A/C in the yoga rooms, as advertised on their website. 2) the toilets in the school were regularly broken. 3) half of the students were put in terrible accommodation, totally different to that advertised on their website. 4) the meals, whilst prepared every day by a team of incredibly kind and hard-working kitchen staff, is by no means Ayuverdic and is hugely restricted in terms of ingredients, contrary to what is (or was) advertised on their website. 5) there were no Sunday excursions until we forcefully complained, and then suddenly we were offered a morning trip to a cave, that was simply, a cave. 6) the wiFi is completely unreliable and doesn't support anything more than occasionally messaging people - emails and websites do not load, and don't even think about trying to Skype call (or similar) your people back home. Half way through our course, people were so unhappy that we demanded to see the owner - it took three days for him actually to show up (he disappears after the first few days of each batch 'on family business') - so that we could voice our complaints. He was wholly unapologetic and had an answer for any of our comments, essentially that the website FAQs cover all of the above in some way or another. For the students in the horrendous accommodation, the offer to move and find accommodation themselves was all that was offered. For the rest of the students, no compensation of any kind was given, not even a sincere apology by the school owner. After this 'meeting' suddenly the school was cleaned daily (before then it was rarely cleaned), the awful accommodation was suddenly in the process of being renovated, the AC systems were 'looked at' (to no positive effect), and a technician came to check the wiFi (again, to no positive effect). And I'm sure the claims on the website have been changed to cover his back. I could go on, but it's boring me wasting my time on someone like this man. In short, BE WARNED. If you choose this school, do not expect ANY of what the website advertises. You must be prepared to really make the best of the situation yourself. I would strongly recommend checking out other schools - they are not the only school in Rishikesh that offers vinyasa TT. And if you've already signed up and paid, don't worry - the teachers are an amazing team, just focus on them and the positivity they share with you.
