“Just finished my Chakra Meditation Teacher Training course and I wanted to share my gratitude to Swami Samarth and whole team of Yoga Essence Rishikesh. I am really happy with my choice to enter this meditation training course. Very good atmosphere and energy, yoga place is super clean, very well organized, lessons always on time, adjustment according to group energy and very experienced teacher Swami Dhyan Samarth who lives what he teaches. I have felt very calming, blessing, loving and relaxing atmosphere during learning and practicing meditation during this meditation course. If you are open and ready to move ahead, you will have amazing soul journey and experience. The learning is not from books but from own practical experience, so get ready to go deep inside.” – Simona, Thailand.

“A very great experience! Profound techniques were taught by Swami Dhyan Samarth, both in liberation and going deep into the self. I felt more and more vibration in different chakra areas, and I went deeper into the layers inside. I discovered some very great techniques that intent to continue practice, Thank you Swamiji very much for the sharing those techniques. Teaching was really good. Clam explanation and deep knowledge, It was not always easy for me to understand, due to the language. But I got more of the technique and the meditation teacher was really patient about that, repeated when needed. Food was very good. Different Dal each day and always delicious. A good mix of fresh and cooked food. Personnel in the kitchen were nice and joyful. Accommodation was good.” – Naka, Japan


“I’m just back home from YOGA Essence Rishikesh. I did the Life Transforming Meditation & Yoga Retreat with Swami Dayan Samarth and everything was perfect. I felt home there from the very first day. I found there the most loving and caring people. I totally recommend this place. If you open yourself up to the new experience it can really be a life changer. Both meditation and yoga was wonderful.

Thank you so much Swami for the journey you took me on to discover my spiritual self and transform my life. Everything was beyond expectations. I felt cared for, guided and deeply loved unconditionally. I’m grateful for your teachings but also for your kindness, for the joy and laughter we shared together with all the others from the group who became like a family for me. Thank you also to all the other warm hearted people of your team. This was definitely an unforgettable experience for me which changed my whole view about life. Wishing you all the best and looking forward to meeting you again soon.” – Mirela Raula, Romania.

“I participated the 15 days Life Transformational Meditation Retreat at Yoga Essence rishikesh. Amazing teachers and their teachings, with a well-balanced and diverse curriculum of the course. Everyone here is very sweet & authentic in nature, from the head Swami Samarth and all the way to the building manager. The school is also close enough to the Main Street for shopping & sightseeing, while also far enough away to get away from the honking and general craziness of life in India.

It is a wonderful and unique experience. There are so many yoga teacher training and retreats in Rishikesh, but I truly feel that this course provides a one-of-kind experience and insight, with teachings which are often rushed, glossed over, or ignored by larger schools.” – Robert Webb, USA.

“It was a great experience! I discover a lot of things of my life through this Life Transformational Meditation Retreat at Yoga Essence Rishikesh. Thanks to all Yoga Essence team. The retreat brings lots of changes to my life. I am just in the beginning of the inner journey but that’s a great start! I found the way to be with myself and find the joy inside, not outside. I am not really good in expressing myself with words so I just say that I’m very grateful and appreciate too much what you’re doing. Keep up ! you’re doing great! Thanks for becoming my family for 15 days. Thanks for all your care, I really appreciate this and will never forget! Namaste !” – Xenia Bouranova, Russia.
