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've been there. It was an amazing experience.

It is difficult to find a good place to learn yoga. You know it's only a month and a half, and it is a lot of knowledge. But this school is a truely good one.

A big Russian influence make a really good and organized teaching programm (you don"t find this everywhere in India! ^^).

Class are very clear (even for those who don't have a very good english ;-)). Planning is intense but the time is nicely use.

Teachers there are passionate and make you love yoga more than when you start ( I didn't thought that was possible :-)) But not only.

You can't change a lot in that time (even with a strong mind) but after this course you have a knew comprehension about Yoga, about you, about the life around you...

At the end you are really proud of what you did and very happy<>/em to have this knew knowledge in your life. It is hard to find the right words.

And you will meet people from all parts of the world loving Yoga, India, and travel like you! A lot of good vibes from all people I met there.

Have a nice trip :-)!
