Himalayan Yoga Academy is one of the leading yoga schools in Rishikesh, India

Himalayan Yoga Academy is one of the most progressive schools in Rishikesh.

The name of our school, Academy, corresponds to our name mission: to create an educational establishment, where seekers would learn all aspects of yoga, both theoretically and practically. For this, we have created a board of our staff teachers which no other school in Rishikesh can boast of. We have gathered teachers who are professionals in their field of yoga, so that our students could learn different practices and styles from the first hands.

We're not guru centered school, that means there is no one man teaching all aspects of yoga. At the same time, we preserve the model of an institution where guru-sadhaka mode of teaching/learning is practiced.

However, Academy means variety of subjects, with every subject being taught by a teacher who has researched and practiced this very subject for many years.

Our main goal is to create experience, to facilitate our students in applying knowledge in their practice and get real insights about the goals of yoga and nature of reality. For this, we have both strong theoretical approach (gaining the knowledge) and very sold practical part (applying the knowledge in students' own practice). With such approach we're nurturing yoga teachers of new generation: open-minded, creative and brave, but with very solid understanding, both intellectual and practical, of what they are teaching.

Reviews by graduates

I had a wonderful experience in my 240-hr Yoga Teacher Training at HYA. I knew I wanted to study in India, and this program was recommended to me by my teacher in California and is known for being one of the most organized and holistic training programs in Rishikesh. The teaching staff is extremely qualified, including some of the top teachers in Rishikesh, and diverse, with some Russian, Western, and Indian instructors, which is definitely a benefit to a YTT. There is a strong focus is on structural alignment of the asanas and teaching practice, which was exactly what I was looking for, but also classes on pranayam, mindfulness, and meditation. Overall, my experience in this teacher training brought me closer to my true self, and HYA still holds a dear place in my heart.
