Here’s why Rishikesh is known as the Yoga Capital of the World!
Millions of people from all over the world have found their spiritual awakening in the town of Rishikesh. Set in the Himalayan foothills, along the majestic River Ganges, in the state of Uttarakhand in northern India, it is truly unlike any other place in the world. We welcome you to experience a transformative journey towards deepening your knowledge and practice of yoga in the very place of its origin.
The school is very well located, surrounded with typical local life with cows and monkeys. There are plenty of additional food options to explore in the cafes nearby. Our room was clean, spacious, with a big balcony opening towards the Ganga. The building is located uphill, it’s freshly renovated, with modern facilities, ACs and a huge rooftop with an amazing view.
It was a wonderful experience doing my 200-hour TTC course here. Amazing teachers, very helpful staff. The school is new and everything is clean. Nice food, too. I enjoyed the view from my room; it was incredible. Also the location of the school is very good - you can find everything nearby. l learned a lot, enjoyed my stay there and would like to go back for more courses.
