An amazingly comprehensive and complete course! I highly recommend this course if one is serious about learning Yoga and Meditation. I'm very grateful for all that I've learned.
We were a small group and thanks to it received all attention from our teachers and got answers to all our questions. Many new inputs and inspiration for yoga practice.
The food was super delicious every single day with always healthy, nutritious and diversified meals. The accommodation was super big and clean.
On our days off we had some brilliant experiences, this included an amazing trek and a night’s camping in the beautiful Rishikesh hills. These were great opportunities to really get to know each other and all of the teachers, and by the end of the month you feel like family. Rishikesh Yogkulam is a magical place that I just can’t recommend enough.
