Rishikul Yogshala Rishikesh's Asset is our Students.
Yoga is not to be Practiced, but Experienced and Our Students dont just Practice Yoga, they Experience Yoga.
Wonder, What is so Special About Us?
What separates Us from the Rest of the Yoga Schools in Rishikesh?
"Are you thinking what Our Students say about Us? Please See for Yourself!!!"
For those of us who practice regularly and for those of us who are just starting our journey into the discipline of Yoga, Rishikul Yogshala provides an excellent haven for learning. Like all things-the experience is as good as you are
determined to make it. The location of the school-Rishikesh-vibrates with a very special and palpable energy: the smell of fragrant spices meshes with that of cow dung, incense, musk, and mist. Curiosity peeks from every corner. At the end of your trip, you will have accumulated a myriad of selfies with locals and cows. The environment of the school is very welcoming. Students come from all parts of the world to create a supportive, disciplined, and dynamic energy. The professors are like guides that softly yet consequently, like lighthouses on a starry night, guide you towards refining your self-practice and learning how to teach your future students. Many are brilliant people who are there to share their knowledge with you at all points. The living conditions are very simplistic. If you are expecting luxury then this is definitely not the place for you. Monkeys like to take a peek into your room and little four-legged beetle friends make their way quite often into your room-nonetheless the amenities suffice. The food prepared by the school's canteen is simple but good. Although after a couple of weeks you will find yourself trying out little coffee houses (especially the peanut chocolate balls at the French bakery) to give yourself a little treat. Wifi and electricity work usually but you might find yourself stuck without power during the monsoon season due to the heavy rains. The teaching schedule is very packed ensuring that your days are fully loaded-even “free days” are engaging so make sure you don’t make any big plans that run parallel to your teacher training schedule (e.g. massage course, etc). Most of all beware what you eat outside of the school and try not to share food. The healthcare of the school is decent but it is definitely advisable to bring some medicine from home. The path of the yoga-the discipline of yoga is a long-term process-so don’t expect to become a guru by the end of your month!!! The aim of this teacher training is to keep an open mind and absorb as much knowledge as possible to share in the future. In Rishikesh, I definitely recommend Rishikul Yogashala. Make the most of everything and you will love it!
Our 1 week retreat at Rishikul Yogshala has been wonderful. The valuable learning experience from all the teachers here has not only enhanced my yoga practice but has promoted deep self awareness & life perspective. This week has helped
open my heart, eyes & soul. Not only did we learn asana, pranayama, cleansing, philosophy, Ayurvedic, mantra, dance yoga & meditation... Thank you to Nitin Chotwani, Deepa Negi Mira, Krishna & the teacher trainer students who took us into their family at Rishikul Yogshala... you will forever be in our hearts
I'm blessed to have completed the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with the amazing teachers @ Rishikul Yogshala this past May. To me this has been a life changing experience that touched every aspect of my lifeRishikul Yogshala became my...
family and I miss them dearly but I have taken each and every one of them in my heart. Rishikul Yogshala is located in the lovely area of Ramjhula, a short walk away from Mother Ganga and holds breathtaking views of the mountains. The accommodations are confortable and clean with beautiful views. The food is amazing, they take care of having a balanced and delicious menu every day. I miss their food so much!!!!
Two weeks ago I completed my 300 hour yoga teacher training in rishikesh at Rishikul Yogshala in Rishikesh, and I consider myself lucky and privileged to have received the trainings from the teachers we had.
I have thanked each one of them individually, and here I thank the school for being professional, caring, well structured, disciplined, and at the same time very light in its system.
I now feel so rich with the amount of knowledge I gathered, topics exposed to and techniques learnt. I have advanced physically and in my own practice, and most notably learnt the foundations of yoga postures in an intense and engraving manner from brilliantly qualified teachers. I have learnt so much more than I thought I would through every topic, and each class complements the other whether it’s anatomy, philosophy or Asana. Sincere effort has been put to develop a wholesome harmonized curriculum.
Beyond the technical practice, I personally benefited from deep spiritual experiences through our meditation classes and Pranayama, especially being in Rishikesh and always surrounded with that elevated sensation.
The school itself and the teachers serve spirituality at the palm of their hands, and the teachers humble you in their service of knowledge to students, their genuine concern and eagerness for us to learn. Not to forget how all staff members are extremely helpful and pleasant at all times. Rooms are clean, adequately furnished, comfortable and spacious. Each meal has a variety of options, and the school also takes into consideration dietary restrictions; so all you have to do is communicate.
To sum up, this course and my choice of the school are the best things I have done for myself yet. I have grown and gained more confidence, skill and courage to move forward. I wish the entire team and the school all the best in their individual and collective journeys. A huge piece of me remains at Rishikul Yogshala and I am eternally grateful to everyone, and to everything I received.
strongly recommend Rishikul Yogshala to everyone who want to practice yoga and who want to share his practice with others. I finished 200YTT in Rishikesh. I appreciated the effortless effort :) of the teachers to make us understand...
each subject of yogic science: asanas,pranayama , philosophy, anatomy, meditation, yoga nidra, cleansing practices. After one month you will realize how little you know and they will really inspire you to deeper your practice and knowledge. It is a great adventure to meet people from all over the planet and to experience together what yoga really is. Thank you Vipin Baloni and Prashantj - the best Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga teachers! I will come back for sure.
I highly recommend Rishikul Yogshala to everyone practicing all levels of yoga. I attended the 200 hour TTC July 2015 and I still glow every time I think about my experience. The curriculum is just amazing and well designed.
The course is very intense and it covers deeply lots of subject. The day starts at 5.30 in the morning with Hatha classes, followed by pranayama and mantra or yoga nidra. After breakfast, there are yoga philosophy classes followed by anatomy classes.
After lunch, adjustment and alignment classes are really interesting and important (to be able to know how to correct your own asanas and your future students' too). I was also able to deepen my practice in ashtanga day by day as each posture is taught one by one. And after ashtanga the day finishes with meditation at 18:00. So a very intense day covering all kind of yoga aspects to give you a better understanding of yoga. Teachers are outstanding, extremely professional and enthusiastic, you can't get enough of their wisdom. I learned important lessons about yoga and the yogic life and the course gave me a solid foundation to continue exploring and expanding my knowledge in yoga. I had a wonderful experience at Rishikul yogshala. The school met all my expectations and in some cases were exceeded. And the food is delicious organic vegetarian food from the Himalayas. Don't miss this amazing experience!!
Choosing a yoga school in Rishikesh is a difficult task as there is an incredible offer. Rishikul Yogshala was recommended to me by a yoga teacher with whom I was going to drop in classes in Rishikesh and it was a great recommendation!
Their curriculum is well developed, I loved all subjects, the place is quiet, clean and cosy, the food is delicious… But I especially liked Rishikul Yogshala because of their teachers. All of them were very knowledgeable and dedicated to their job and shared and transmitted to the students their love and passion for yoga. I can’t wait to get back and do the 300 hour yoga teacher training in rishikesh with them!
If you are finding it really hard to decide which YTT school to chose in Rishikesh, then I can help you with that..this is the school to chose! My whole experience there was above and beyond anything I expected!
The school has this lovely energy and every person working there has a unique and beautiful character, they are very caring and open and you just become family with all of them! The yoga teachers there are some of the top teachers in Rishikesh!! They are so well practiced and knowledgeable and I feel really privileged to have learned from them. I learned so many things that I was doing wrong before in my practice and they showed me the right way!! The whole program is very well planned out, it is an intensive learning course but they have made sure to leave space for free time and some fun, they put on nice social gatherings at the school and I really loved the excursions especially rafting on the ganges!!! Oh and the food is awesome! There is a lot of care and love that goes into the food, which makes a big difference!! Overall, I give the school a 10 out of 10, they have become a huge part of my life and I hope to go back soon to complete my full 500hr training!
Yoga teacher training!! Just completed 200 hour yoga teacher training in rishikesh with rishikul. I am really glad i chose this school, not just they hv amazingly knowledgeable faculty but equally great support staff. Very warm, very welcoming and people actually...

I am definitely coming back for 300hr Highly recommend this school to all the yogis out there And yes!! they serve delicious food
Me and my wife just finished the 200 hour yoga teacher training at Rishikul Yogshala in Rishikesh, and we couldn't be more grateful and happy we decided to end there after researching all the options. All the reviews about it are true. It definitely exceeded our expectations.
Great teachers, very good ayurvedic food to keep up with the intensity of the practice, very nice people who made us feel at home from day 1. Im missing it already after a few days, considering coming back for the 300h :) Great set up as well, very quiet, amazing jungle views, apart from the hectic Laksmanjula. Very very complete!

The no-brainer choice for western yoga students looking to study close to the 'root' while getting YTT certified. The course / teachers: During my 500 hour training (200hr + 300hr back to back) in Rishikesh the team at Rishikul quickly became family, helping me reach new levels in my personal practice physically, mentally and spiritually. These aren't just teachers but are awesome human beings who don't just talk the talk, but also walk the walk. Truly, new lifelong friends. While intense, the knowledge, support and abilities of all the teachers is truly exceptional and students genuinely open to ways of thinking/being will be glad they choose to spend this time at Rishikul.
