Reviews Of Maharishi Yoga Peeth Rishikesh
I chose to study at MAHARISHI YOGA in Rishikesh initially on recommendation from a friend. Before coming to MAHARISHI YOGA I had been travelling in India for 6 months, trying to get as much experience of yoga as possible, trying many styles, ashrams and teachers. The teachers were my priority in making my decision; not the accommodation, food or otherwise, (although these were really great too! bonus). I had not read any reviews online. My expectations (although it is of course best never to have any om shanti) were far exceeded. I came for a trial class of Ashtanga with Neeraj another excellent teacher, and realised that it's the real deal - similar to the Mysore style I had enjoyed. Without doubt all the teachers are true professionals, and the knowledge they share is inspiring, humbling and life-changing. The course is well structured, balanced, and gives a holistic well-rounded baseline into physical, philosophical and spiritual aspects of yoga not just the asana. The anatomy and philosophy classes were stimulating and entertaining. The material covered is fresh and not repetitive (as it can often be in India for Western audiences). The other students provided an encouraging, empowering space to practice teaching. The food is varied, fruit in the morning, not spicy, and is much better than what is often served as traditional ashrams. The rooms were clean and comfortable and I felt in luxury after six months travelling India, where things like laundry often seem hard tasks. I believe this course strikes a good balance, offering an authentic Indian yogic experience while also actively striving to meet Western expectations and satisfy its students. Thank you MAHARISHI YOGA.
Namaste I'm satish I'm an Indian I did my 200hrs ttc in this school this place is so amazing I got more than what I expected from this course this course was totally life changing one month for me this made me a better person now I see my life from a different perspective, food is so amazing teachers are highly knowledgeable yoga hall is located right in front of mother Ganga highly recommend..
Great School. This training exceed my expectations and gave me a deep vision about yoga life style. I had the opportunity to learn from excellent teachers. Great Curriculum with meditation classes, mantras, philosophy , pranayama etc. I highly recommend
I am doing my 200hrs TTY in MAHARISHI YOGA, I will have my last day tomorrow and I've already booked the 300hrs course. The teachers are highly qualified and they take care of our own needs and level of yoga. Food is very good and light, perfect to the yoga practice.
When I was looking for a yoga school in India I found out about the school from my guest instructor who just finished his 300 hrs training in MAHARISHI YOGA school. His asanas where impressive and I wanted to improve my yoga practice skills. When I started my 300 hrs. YTT myself I was impressed by the knowledge and teaching skills of the instructors, by how well thought was the curriculum of the course. The atmosphere at the school is very nice and friendly, you meet here like minded people from all over the world which was not surprising, after all it is Rishikesh, the birthplace of yoga and one of the holiest places in India. You have plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in yoga and culture of India. I was very happy that I came to MAHARISHI YOGA school in Rishikesh.
I have attended Yoga retreat for two weeks in Maharishi Yogpeeth., Rishikesh, India. Its a great rejuvenating and refreshing experience . Maharishi Yoga is a professional Yoga school with well experienced teachers and good staff. It is a good place to learn Yoga for personal well being and to adapt good lifestyle. Here, the emphasis is on the role of Yoga on human anatomy. That really gave me drive to learn Yoga and continue the practice. Looking forward to visit again to learn more about Yoga.
Had a wonderful experience at MAHARISHI YOGA. All of the teachers were incredibly knowledgeable in their respective subjects. Teachers are willing to help and answer all questions. Covered lots of different aspects of yoga throughout the month. The general staff was also very kind and friendly. Made great friends from all over the world!
As a current fitness professional, it was very important to attend a school that had quality instruction and knowledgeable staff. MAHARISHI YOGA provided that and much more. I completed my 300 TTC here and it has improved my skill set and knowledge as an instructor. On top of the great education, the facility is clean and has beautiful views. Very happy I enrolled here.
If you did a lot of research on where to go for your yoga teacher training - just like I did for weeks and weeks - then still this place will exceed your expectations. Not only is the staff caring, honest, warm hearted and very supportive, also the teachers are highly knowledgeable, truly inspiring, very experienced and also super funny! I couldn’t think of better teachers. Rishikesh is just THE place to go to start or proceed your spiritual journey, Maharishi Yoga is also a very good choice to learn and experience what yoga has to offer to you. Not to forget the great food which is light and delicious and just perfect for your yoga practice. I stayed at MAHARISHI YOGA over Christmas and it was really fun and really awesome to learn in a smaller group as it is quite cold in rishikesh at this time of year and totally not high season. However, if you take some warm sweaters and a sleeping bag it’s totally fine and way nicer for your body to practice yoga in cooler weather. I am very grateful for the time I could spent in rishikesh and wanna say a big thank you to MAHARISHI YOGA where I felt just like I belonged. I loved every minute!
I finished the 200 hours yoga training course at MAHARISHI YOGA school, and I enjoyed it very much. The teachers are excellent, the people who work here are friendly and open, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the food is good. The location is also good as it's away from the hustle of the main road, but still close enough to the shops. I would come here again for my 300 hours certification.
The course itself was good, but we had to go deeper in the planning of sequencing a class. Teachers are really nice and professional and all of them were open to answer all our questions. As for the accommodation, I would say the bathrooms are neat and clean. The food was good, much better than expected. The whole experience was a blessing. I learnt so much in this month on personal level along with meditative level. Having such an intense course about yoga makes me want to deepen my knowledge even more.
My experience at MAHARISHI YOGA was great, I learnt a lot from the fantastic and experienced teachers . They are very dedicated and passionate about Yoga tradition. If you want to learn from the source, I recommend you to join this school. The location is the best as it is outside Rishikesh, very quiet and green. The food was delicious and healthy, after a month I can see the changes in my digestive system. Accommodation was simple but clean, and you have everything you need. I could write a book about my positive experience, it was everything I expected.
a week ago- I am very Happy that I choose this school (MAHARISHI YOGA) to do my certification. This is quite good place to learn yoga and connect to your mind body and soul. The atmosphere of this school is very positive and staff is so good and very helpful. I highly recommend this school to everyone who wants to learn yoga. You actually feel you are on holidays when you are here. I love the weather mountains, my room , view from my balcony its just amazing. I want to thank every single staff person for being so good and kind to me. I am gonna Miss this place ,my yoga hall , my teachers everyone here. Thank you . Namaste !
I highly recommend Maharishi Yogapeeth school and personallyYogi Jagjeet for those who've decided to take a yoga training. You will find there completely different from other program and tons of very useful information. The pleasant atmosphere and wise and friendly teacher will make you completely relax and forget about the outside world.
Yogi Charan is a being with a warm heart, dedicated 100% to his vocation. Always attentive and aware of his students to help them if necessary. I was doing the 200-hour training in 2019, and it was a very nutritious and intense experience. Whenever I returned to India since then, I ´ve gone to visit him. The Himalayas are wonderful.
Unexpectedly I had to leave India and move back to the West. I left the area where I was living with dierent feelings. I was determined to keep my spirit up though being 5 months pregnant. My last month in India I spent in this beautiful area with yogi Shashi Kant as my teacher. It helped me so much to work on my tness ready for labor
