Megan Fox200 Hour YTTC

This was definitely one of the best experiences I ever had in my entire life. I did the 200 hour yoga teacher training course during the month of December. Living Yoga School is located on the top of a hill from which you can enjoy the view of beautiful mountains (perfect for meditation especially at sunrise/sunset). The entire staffs are so friendly, helpful and approachable. The teachers are simply amazing and so knowledgeable! I felt part of the family from the very beginning. I would sincerely recommend coming here not only for teacher training course but also to live an experience that will change your life! I cannot wait to join for the 300 hour yoga instructor coaching course! You guys are the best! See you soon!

Rosy Chen300 Hour YTTC

I did my 200 hour and 300 hour yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh at Living Yoga School. Very good experience during my stay. Rooms, accommodation, food and view from the top are excellent. Most experienced teachers in this school. It is the best place to become yoga instructor. If anyone wants to seek the knowledge of yoga, I recommend them to join Living Yoga School.

Sophia200 Hour Kundalini YTTC

I choose Living Yoga School because it was because it was in Rishikesh the yoga capital of the world and it's quite a peaceful little town, none of the chaos and scary atmosphere that people warn me about in India. I was able to walk by myself on the streets and nothing ever happened, I always felt safe during my stay.

Emma200 Hour YTTC

I choose the school was because of its complete schedule. Not only focused on yoga but also Pranayama, mediation, anatomy, mantra chanting and ayurveda. All these classes packed into 3 weeks of intense studying and yoga practicing which made me feel I got much more than what I paid for. If you are looking for a complete course this is the one I recommend.

Isabella200 Hour YTTC

I recommend Living Yoga School for 200 hour holistic yoga course. My teachers were for the most part very dedicated and passionate, really caring about us as students. It was difficult to get up early every morning but because classes were so interesting and the teacher so passionate I got up early everyday because I didn't want to miss a thing.

Olivia200 Hour Yoga TTC

Trusted yoga teacher training center in Rishikesh. The school also arrange certain outdoor activities; they took us to Kunjapuri temple, a meditation cave and to witness ceremonies in the Ganga River. All truly beautiful and amazing experiences that I really enjoyed.

Ava300 Hour YTTC

Living Yoga School is best School of Yoga in Rishikesh. It certainly changed my life and of course improved my yoga skills too, I now feel like I can do yoga poses I thought were impossible for me and I just stayed there one month!

Abigail200 Hour Kundalini YTTC

Best Yoga School in Rishikesh, Overall, I really enjoyed my stay in Living Yoga School it became my home away from home and I definitely want to someday come back to do 300 hours more.

Carmen Palomba200 Hour YTTC

The 200h YTT Course with Living Yoga School has been much more then expected at all levels. I want to say a big THANK YOU to the whole team, thank you to Guruji for opening the whole world of the Himalayan tradition of Yoga to us, the fantastic philosophy classes and meditation teachings, the connection and support I could feel. Thank you so much to Devesh for being such a competent, supportive and motivating teacher, for sharing not only hatha yoga and alignment knowledge but also knowledge of life and for sharing with us what really means to be a good yoga teacher. I can´t wait to go to Rishikesh and learn with them in person. In this almost 2 months process I started to see clearer into myself and make some important changes in my everyday life, developing more awareness, focus, discipline and joy. I was at first sceptical about an online format, but since the beginning I was really impressed with the online live teaching, the communication, the way everyone was supportive and experienced as well as the quality of the recorded material: so much knowledge and everything so well explained. I could write much more about how inspiring the whole experience was and how much will positivly influence my practice and the understanding of myself. I recommend this School to everyone!
