The Yoga School where I did my 200 hour Teacher Training Course has been awarded as one of the 10% worldwide best place reviews from TripAdvisorp and I am not surprised at all!!
The quality of the school, teachers, food...
I am not where to start but I will start by talking about the owners of Hatha Yoga World, Pankaj and Julie Seth, who are a married couple and they are the perfect balance, Yang&Yin. Pankaj is native from India and he started practising yoga at a very young age. His knowledge is unbelievable in all aspects. He conducts the traditional Hatha. Julie, is the Yin. She is deeply into yoga and India with as well many years of yoga practitioner. She conducts the Yin, meditation and Vinyasa in a more modern way.
Then we got two Philosophy teachers who has been studying Yoga Philosophy as a degree, with masters, meditation schools, and so many more things. They are like proper gurus, honestly!! Their knowledge is mind blowing.
Anatomy was conducted by a doctor who's a yoga practitioner as well so he knew everything about it too, with the more scientist way and the holistic.
And now, I am gonna talk about the cooker! Oh god, he prepared the most amazing dishes! I was so concerned about which sort of food I would get there and if it would be enough. We had an Ayurvedic cuisine and loads of it. I was always repeating cause it was soo tasty!!!

Hatha yoga world is based in Rishiskesh, the heart of yoga in India. The school and the hotel are in the same building. Rooms are very big, double bed, balcony, own bathroom, hot water and Wi-Fi all day! They have a terrace with views to the Himalayas!

And now let's talk about the price. For the 200hour course, plus all day meals and room I paid just 1200 dollars!!! What about the flights? Around 400 to 500 pounds!
In the UK or anywhere in Europe this type of course with just the course it starts at the price of 2000 pounds...

I don't think I have anything else to say here. Check out their website🙏😊

I finished my 200 hr ttc at hatha yoga world 4 months ago. And since then I have missed all the teachers every single day. Out of the million schools I could have chosen, i reall8feel grateful to the universe that i chose this. My training was perfect in every since. Specially when I hear from my colleagues what thye9did in their ttc. Pankaj, the heath teacher is an alignment God. He changed my body within a month. He knows exactly when to push you and how much to push you. But that's not all
He walks the talk. He himself is a great practitioner who has changed his own life with yoga and his story is super inspiring.
Julie is the epitome of a compassionate, creative and honest yogini. Her evening classess are so warm and welcoming with creative sequencing and her energy is truly magnetic.
Benoo, our philosophy teacher is the funniest , craziest man with a wealth of knowledge. I could spend the entire month just talking to him and listening to him talk. The way he has taught me pranayama, has enabled me to give clear , detailed instructions to my fellow students. Raj is the anatomy teacher who takes real pride in his work and this shows when he teaches. He is well prepared, well educated and transmits anatomy knowledge in a practical sense too.
I know I'm babbling but I am so inspired by this yoga family of mine which really care about what they do as opposed to running it like a business. The accommodation is a hotel basically so is super comfortable and the best in rishikesh I can assure you.
A big shout out to the staff who go out fo your way to make your stay as comfortable as possible organising activities, laundry etc. I alsoncabt and this review without a ig shout to the cook mandal whose food is the best indian food I have had. Ps I'm indian too. But the food is of outstanding quality and I swear I have never eaten so much in my life! 4 aloo parathas for breakfast I'm looking at you!
Thank you to pankaj and julie who share a special place in my heart. I cant wait to go back to hatha yoga world for more training.

I completed my 200 YTT at Hatha Yoga World earlier this month and it was such a fabulous experience! I found myself there after another YTT fell through and I'm really grateful that it did, as I'm sure it wouldn't have been as good as this one; it's rare that the training, teachers, food, accomodation and staff are all of such a high standard.

Pankaj and Julie are great yoga teachers. Pankaj teaches Hatha and his demonstrations, explanations and adjustments are fantastic; Julie teaches Hatha flow/vinyasa and yin and she was wonderful too; the queen of yin! Both had me achieving things like headstands within a matter of days-I think it was because they both made me feel so comfortable and relaxed, even though I was learning so much. I feel like I will be a good teacher of asanas, given time and experience, thanks to them!

Benu taught us philosophy, mantras and pranayama and opened up a whole new world for me. He made me realise that yoga isn't just about asanas and I intend to study more now that I am back home. He is extremely knowledgeable yet highly amusing, so we always looked forward to his classes. Raj the anatomy teacher also blew my mind with his knowledge-he made anatomy look easy! I liked the way he always explained or demonstrated how anatomy and yoga were related. So interesting.

On top of all this great training we had western style rooms which were clean, cosy and homely and amazing food, cooked by the wonderful Mandal! I expected to be half starved on my YTT but instead I put weight on! His food was a joy to eat. Plus we had a lovely team on reception with Rakesh and Dibo-always so helpful and friendly.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this YTT to anyone considering it. You will have a wonderful experience, with support from all at Hatha Yoga World(especially when you need it most), and receive an excellent teacher training course that will serve you well both as an individual and as an instructor.

I went to Hatha yoga world for a one week retreat because I did yoga just few times before, never seriously.
It was a small group where I was very well welcomed, the teachers are incredible. I felt like home.
The bedrooms are very big and clean, and the food...... wonderful!!!!
This experience changed my life, specially how I see my future now.
Thank you is not strong enough to represent my gratefulness.

I feel immensely blessed to have completed my 200 YTT at Hatha Yoga World. Julie and Pankaj are incredible teachers - their teaching styles of Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa/Yin Yoga respectively, complement each other quite well and this was a great balance for me, to learn and practice yoga. Benu, the philosophy teacher is amazing - he is insightful and knowledgable, on not just the philosophy of Yoga, but everyday life. And he has a quirky and fun-loving personality which is endearing. The anatomy teacher, Raj, is excellent and provided us with a thorough knowledge on yoga and anatomy and their association together.

Mandal, who cooked our food is great! The food was delicious! Words fail me in expressing how happy I and the rest of my fellow students were, with all our meals. Rakesh and Dibo at reception are always welcoming with a friendly smile and were willing to assist me with anything I needed.

This YTT was a wonderful and truly rewarding journey for me. The dedication, love, effort and continuous support and motivation from Julie and Pankaj and the rest of the team at Hatha Yoga World made this an experience, I hold dear to my heart.

If you are interested in a YTT course, I urge you to consider Hatha Yoga World - you will be so happy you did!

Love and light,
Poveshnee

I did my 200hrs TTC at Hatha Yoga World in November 2019.
All I can say is WOW!
Julie and Pankaj were incredible teachers, going above and beyond for myself and the others on the course. The philosophy teacher, Benu, literally knows everything, not only about yoga but the world in general and he is also hilarious. Raj, the Anatomy teacher is also wonderful and highly knowledgable!
I loved the small group size (5 including me) and it means that the teachers can pay close attention to you and you really improve your personal practice over the course as well as being able to then know how to adjust others correctly.
I was essentially an absolute beginner when I started the course and was initially worried I'd be behind the others. But there was not one moment I didn't feel supported and Julie and Pankaj's classes were appropriate for yogis of all levels, from absolute beginner to advanced, as they offered individualised teaching.
The accommodation was amazing. Huge bed, very clean and own bathroom. The hotel staff are also awesome and food is soooo good!
I can't thank everyone at Hatha Yoga World enough for such an awesome experience and for instilling in me the confidence and skill set to start teaching. I feel like you all became my family for the month I was in Rishikesh (Julie even arranged a family Christmas dinner for us ❤️). I will definitely be back in the future 😊

With so many options it is a difficult decision to know which school to chose - and I am so glad I chose Hatha Yoga World 💕 From the start you are made to feel welcomed and this continues throughout and after the course (I am back again to learn a little more!)
Over the weeks you are carefully guided through the programme by a fantastic team of teachers, each with vast knowledge in their fields be it philosophy, anatomy or asanas. The course is intense and involves physical and mental challenges but the solid foundation built at the start of the course and the experience of the teachers mean that the challenges are surmountable and you achieve your true potential. This makes the course valuable as you learn so much more than you think you can.
The ‘icing on the cake’ was the food! Each day starts with fresh fruit, juice, porridge or my favourite, paratha and spinach - all freshly prepared and much needed after the morning practice. Lunch and the evening meal are again freshly cooked each day and there is always salads, soups, and vegetarian main meals. I had the opportunity to join the chef for the preparation of one of the meals and hopefully will be able to remember one or two hints for when I return home...
All the staff at the hotel are always ready to help and support day or night and this along with the super comfortable rooms (they even have usb plug sockets!) makes this the perfect choice for continuing or even starting the yoga journey 💕🙏💕

Bautiful experience in the Yoga city of Rishikesh. Julie and Pankaj are great teachers who complement each others well. I specially liked and appreciated Julies beautiful harmonius energy, her gentle and knowledgeable way of teaching and her kindness. Pankaj has plenty of teaching experience and is very talented in his asana practice and hands on adjustment. The location was new and well equipped with private rooms and lightful yoga shala.
