The learning atmosphere and teachers are very good and you can ask questions at any time you get quick answers via different media.

I had the most wonderful time at yoga India foundation. thank you so much to the entire team for making me feel so welcome and happy I really appreciate that your hospitality and kindness and your 24/7 availability. it was beyond my expectation that the food was always cooked freshly with a lot of love and deliciously prepared. I have completed my yoga teacher training in India 1 months ago and still fear the positive effects of the training. The teacher staff and entire team made me feel so welcome and where I taken care of.i will be forever grateful to have studied at this amazing school the location is simply amazing you are directly located at the national park and can see the Ganges river from across the side. there is also a little spa at the school so you can use your free time to take ayurvedic massages and feel even more relaxed.the yoga teacher training in India was really challenging because there were many hours of yoga everyday however it was well structured. overall I can recommend the school from the bottom of my heart and feel very happy that I chose the school. in life it's not always easy but I learnt many techniques to stay grounded and overcome issues by my own . I am excited to be teaching yoga now and sharing my new knowledge with my students back in Germany I hope to come to yoga India foundation again for my advanced 300 hour yoga teacher training in India mayaby I will find the time next year and can return a big thank you to Vipin Vipul Anrud Lakshmi for sharing your knowledge and sharing your secrets love and peace

If you are looking to study yoga in India, I can recommend Yoga India Foundation from my deepest soul. Traveling to India and learning the traditional yogic science, asana and Ayurveda left me with much clarity and joy. I did my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga India Foundation Ashram in Rishikesh which was the best thing I've done in my life so far. The teachers are simply amazing, so passionate, kind and respectful. I ate delicious vegan food which gave me energy for the classes. The ashram is located outside the busy area next to the nature reserve and river, it's so beautiful. I couldn't have asked for more so I wish to say a big thank you to the wonderful school and of course my fellow class mates! There was not a single thing that I didn't like, everyone took such good care of us while we were still challenged and pushed to our limits! I feel so excited and ready to teach now 🙂

Yoga India Foundation is a wonderful yoga school that helped me to open my heart, mind and entire being. I will forever be grateful for the amazing teachers who guided me through ups, downs, past present moments. I learn about the ethics of becoming a yoga teacher and gained a huge understanding, not only about yoga, but also about myself, life and relationship. the group energy was like a family, we became close friends and shared our special insights and growth. Thanks for making my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in India so memorable and unique, I can't wait to travel back to India one day. If you are looking for the right yoga school, I can recommend this place from my heart. I am an office worker, who (due to sitting a lot) came with the intention to connect to myself and remove my back pain. I stumbled upon Yoga India Foundation through a German Blog so I chose this school. A few more details about the accommodation, location and food: I liked the fact that the school is located in a not so busy part of Rishikesh. The local market is only 10 minutes away by rickshaw and we got the opportunities (every Sunday) to explore the surrounding like waterfalls, caves, temples and mountain paths. It really made us bond with each other and enjoy the amazing nature and jungles around. The food is so tasty, all the time. We received three meals per day, vegan and vegetarian according to our preference. There is always lots of fruits, vegetables and side dishes and some chutneys and salad as well. My room was cosy, with a balcony and amazing view to the river. Comparing this location with other places in Rishikesh, its one of the newest and highest standard types of accommodation with clean sheets, towels and blankets. The yoga hall is so big and has much glass so that you can have a fantastic view. I hope that my review can help some yogis to get a better idea of the Yoga India Foundation and make the right choice, like me 🙂 NAMASTÉ

My experience was amazing. Bipin, Anki and all the team are kind people that love Yoga. they open your mind to Yoga. yoga is more than exercise and now I have the knowledge that I want to do with this new knowledge. you should have open mind to learn. the only thing that I didn't like was that some students were really negative persons and disturbed our teaching training. so please.... OPEN MIND. Yoga is not what many people practice in the gym. Yoga is a philosophy of life. And Yoga India Foundation teaches it. 😍🙏

Es war eine richtig schöne Zeit für mich bei der Yoga India Foundation. Ich habe Freunde fürs Leben gewonnen und so viel über mich selbst gelernt. Meine Yogalehrer Ausbildung hat mich zu einem ruhigeren und gelasseneren Menschen gemacht. Ich bedanke mich ganz herzlich bei den Lehrern und Angestellten für das tolle Ambiente, das leckere Essen und die intensiven Yoga Einblicke. Ich hätte mir nichts besseres vorstellen können und bin total zufrieden. Unser Lehrer Manish hat immer gesagt, dass wir im Yoga (und Leben generell) auch mal hinfallen dürfen. Aber das nächste mal sollten wir dann “besser” fallen. Ich wünsche euch alles erdenklich Gute und hoffe, irgendwann noch einmal wiederzukommen. Vielleicht für meine Dreihunderter Yoga Ausbildung, wir werden sehen!

Oh how much I loved my time here...I miss all my class mates, teachers, friends already! I did the 200 hour yoga teacher training in May 18 in Rishikesh. Any problem I had any doubt or confusion, the teachers were always there for me. I felt very motivated and challenged. One time I was sick and they did everything to make me feel better. They gave me Ayurvedic medicine, made special food for me and after only 24 hours I was good and fit gain! It’s hard to find the right place to do such an intense training, but if you go for this school, you can’t do anything wrong for sure! The place is amazing! The course content exceeded my expectations and I went home with much more than I could have thought. Traveling to India for the first time can be scary, but I felt always safe and in good hands. Thanks to the entire yoga india foundation team for making my 200 Hour yoga teacher training so unique and transformational! I cannot wait to return 🙂

We want to make sure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about our yoga teacher training programs, so please feel free to ask us anything.

Ideally, you should have had a few yoga classes before starting the yoga teacher training. You don’t require a regular asana practice beforehand, but it is recommended to have a sincere interest to learn as well as commitment to complete the training. Western Yoga is very different from traditional yoga, so we invite you to learn all about it from A-Z. Our classes slowly build up so you will learn all about asana, pranayama, meditation etc. from a beginner to more intermediate level.

At Yoga India Foundation we teach traditional Yoga, also known as Hatha Asana and Ashtanga Yoga (Eight Parts) Philosophy. Our approach is to look at the individual and teach you how to create perfect health in your body and others. First, you have to understand the common ailments and problems nowadays. Once you understand this and know about the Benefits + Cautions of Asana & Pranayama Techniques, you can determine which techniques to apply to create well-being as well as physical and mental health.
Our goal is to teach you traditional yoga in its holistic, balance-creating and ancient scientific background. Ayurveda plays an important role too; that’s why we teach daily Ayurveda or Applied Ayurveda classes and provide one-on-one consultations by Dr Kumar throughout the course.
