“My journey and experience at Yoga Essence Rishikesh for 200 Hour Holistic Yoga Teacher Training course was wonderful and life transformational. The group of teachers of the course are amazing. Under their guidance, I learnt many asanas and their modifications with proper alignment and adjustment so that I could able to maintain those asanas easily without further complications. The course was eye opening for me regarding the importance of Pranayama and Meditation to deal with difficult situation of life, control emotions and how to eradicate deep root traumas and emotional issues. Swami Dhyan Samarth guided us step by step methodology of meditation and pranayama with their application into our day to day life. He constantly hammered on the application dimension of yoga not only for body but for mind, heart and consciousness which is lacking with most of the yoga teachers and yoga institutes. I am really fortunate to find him and his guidance through the retreat. Many thanks to whole Yoga Essence team for their dedication and love.” – Shamair, USA..

It provides excellent environment at the foot of the Himalayas with spectacular scenic view. Traveling to India to learn yoga was the right thing to do for me.

The teachers are very experienced, resourceful, practical, passionate, kind and always taking care all of us. The teaching is very systematic, comprehensive and interesting. After intense practice of Asana, Pranayama, meditation, Yoga Nidra, mantra etc. there I have found lots of changes and transformation within me. I would say, it opened a new chapter in my life.” – Nirja, India.
“The 200 hour yoga teacher training at Yoga Essence was an intense and fantastic experience of my life. Before joining the course, I had taken classes in asanas but was only aware of the physical aspects of yoga, it was a “simply” work out for me. The school is absolutely amazing, I experienced true spirit of Asana and Pranayama practice from Joy, different Meditation practices, applied Yoga Philosophy, psychology and yoga nidra from Swami Samarth. The philosophic foundations laid in the course also proved to be some of the most powerful and effortlessly combining Yoga Sutras with our daily practice gave me real experience of spiritual yoga. The attentiveness and level of details that the teachers provided, equipped me with great skills and knowledge to be a yoga teacher. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn Yoga and meditation to its depth. Thank you Yoga Essence team for all that you taught me… Namaste!” – Sarina, Kenya.
