“I have completed the incredible Transformational 200 hours Meditation Teacher Training at Yoga Essence in Rishikesh. I feel so grateful and blessed to have found my way to this course and to have been learned from our proficient teachers Samarth and Francesca. They gave so much love, time and energy to every one of us. This course and the experience I have made with the lovely team is a life-changing gift. They have welcomed me very heartily and treated me like family.
I recommend this course to anyone who is searching for different kinds of meditation practices and along with deep self-transformation. A piece of my heart will always be here with the beautiful people and the lessons I shared and learned. Thank you so much for everything. Namaste!


“As a Yoga Teacher, I chose to follow the 200 hours meditation teacher training in Yoga Essence Rishikesh because I wanted to learn and experience different meditation techniques that the training offers different techniques than other schools. Not only I experienced and learned a lot different meditation practices but also it became my life changing process. I found joy and calmness in myself; it deepened my inner journey to experience who I really am? The small group of the program allowed us to become intimate with classmates and made it possible for the excellent teachers to give personal guidance. The teachers are living what they teach and now I understand more what it means to be a yogi. Now I know how I want to teach yoga in my home country with a lot of joy, singing and dancing. I truly recommend this course and school. I'm thankful that I followed it. Namaste! Mario.”
