Rishikesh is situated on the foothills of Himalayas, besides the Ganges River, in India’s northern state of Uttrakhand. It is renowned as the ‘Yoga Capital of the World‘ and Ganges most sacred river in India. This city is considered an alcohol free and vegetarian town and it is surrounded by the forest and hills. It is known as the pilgrimage place and regarded as one of the holiest place. The sages and saints have been in Rishikesh since ancient times to meditate in search of higher knowledge.

Rishikesh is a magnet for spiritual seekers and mother land of Yoga and Meditation. This is why the Beatles came to Rishikesh in 1968 in ‘Chaurasi Kutiya Ashram’ for transcendental meditation. In the evening the supernatural breeze blows down the valley, setting shrine bells ringing. There are so many things to do in Rishikesh like visiting Beatles ashram, white water rafting, jungle safari, camping, ayurvedic cooking & massage, trekking, water fall, visiting temples and ashrams and of course taking a dip in the holy Ganges which is said to completely purify one.

Rishikesh, the cradle of yoga



Changed my life. Not only did my experience surpass expectations, it also left me with a deeper understanding of existence and stronger appreciation for the people I exist with. Invest in yourself, always, but if you choose to invest through creation or expansion of your yoga practice, do so here. Best of all: on top of all the great take-aways this school will leave you with, it is the beautiful people who run the school that put the cherry on the cake. I miss them tremendously. Can't wait to visit!

This review is most specifically on Vikas Pardhan, Head of Jiva Yoga Academy. Vikas Ji made my journey in Rishikesh so blissful, mind easing and transforming. He is extremely knowledgeable, most precisely in Ashtanga yoga and yoga philosophy. He is also very funny, genuine and generous. he is very approachable and will make your stay very familiar and natural. He has the capacity to make every human being understand yoga, in all its forms, to a deeper level. He also has the ability to make you a great teacher if you choose the 200YTT and the ability to make you very flexible and knowledgeable in all asana if you choose a yoga retreat. Your experience with him will be unforgettable. Also, Rishikesh is definitely the best location in the world to learn about yoga. not only is it the world capital of yoga and where the Beatles went on a yoga retreat but, it is also such a peaceful and romantic place where the food is 100% vegetarian and so delicious. It is a Holy ground and therefore, I felt very safe during the entire month. for these reasons, I highly recommend Jiva Yoga Academy. Have a blissful journey. Love and Namaste!

I have completed my 300 hour Yoga Training course with Jiva yoga Academy in March 2022 and it was a very intense but amazing experience. School's staff and teachers are very humble and devoted to their job. Students get to experience not just the learning process of Yoga, but true inner changes and blisses. Everyone connects on a deeper level and learns from each other. It is a life changing experience if you fully submerge and open your mind fully.. Personally I enjoyed the classes of Ashtanga yoga with alignment, Ayurveda and yogic philosophy. I highly recommend if you are looking for Yoga Teacher training program then without thinking you can sign up.

Namaste 🙏
