    Amazing Yoga Teacher Training
    I was here in March 2023 for 200 hours YTT for one month and it was such a great experience. I've learnt so much about Yoga and life what you don't learn everywhere. All teachers are so experienced and provide pure and authentic knowledge. You also feel so much love and kindness. The whole team of the Ashram is so friendly, beginning from the cleaning lady to the cook, who is also a nutritionist to all the teachers. What I liked is that they really learn you about yoga not because it is a big trend in many countries, they teach you to get the best benefit and health for your body. We also had many variety in the schedule from Anatomy, to Ayurveda, Yoga Alignment, Philosophy, Mantra Chanting, Q&A, Meditation, Pranayama, Excursions, Kirtan and many more. It was such a great experience. It feels like a second family there! Thank you for the great experience from my heart!

    Wonderful 200 Hrs TTC
    I did the 200 hours teachers training at Om Shanti Om Yoga School in November 2022 and did not have much of experience practicing Yoga before. It was a truely amazing, heart warming and unforgettable experience and I have continued practicing Yoga almost every day since then. We were a group of about 15 students, most of us lived in the Yoga school itself and some in nearby guesthouses. Days were full starting with mantra chanting in the morning, followed by arsan and pranayam sessions. The daily routine also included daily philosophy and ayurveda classes after lunch and arsan and mediation in the afternoon and evening. Days were full and happy - we were a wonderful group and we had wonderful teachers with DineshJi and his team. The course is much more than the physical exercise. It is a holistic experience and practice of what makes life and India beautiful. Om Shantin Om Yoga Ashram ki: JAY!

    Exceeding my expectations
    This has been one of the most special experiences of my life at Om Shanti Om. It was a month of learning, transformation and self-discovery. The quality of the teachers is very good. I am beyond grateful to Dinesh and to all the teachers at Om Shanti Om for sharing their love and knowledge. Highly recommend. Alejandro Trejo Mexico

    I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training
    I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training there, and it was an extraordinary experience. It marked my first visit to India, and I eagerly anticipate returning. During my time there, I formed enduring friendships and collected memories that I'll treasure forever. At the heart of Rishikesh's yoga culture lies Om Shanti Om Yoga Ashram, where spirituality takes precedence, and teachers instill humility through their dedicated instruction. The warmth and hospitality of the staff are consistently remarkable. My understanding of yoga deepened significantly, particularly in mastering postures and alignment, thanks to Ekam Yogashala's workshops. Covering all essential topics thoroughly, the program left no stone unturned. I wholeheartedly endorse Om Shanti Om Yoga Ashram as one of the premier yoga teacher training schools. It's an opportunity not to be missed.

    Amazing experience
    My experience in Om Shanti Om ashram was amazing. I did the 200hrs teacher training in February. First of all I would like to say that I choose this ashram after trying different ones around Rishikesh. The experience was amazing, nothing to say. Dinesh (the main teacher) is a great person and teacher, his classes are very deep and funny at the same time. Also all the other teacher are great and very qualified. You will learn about many aspects of yoga, after this ttc you will feel changed for sure! The food was amazing, 25 days of pure joy for mouth. Cherry is the best chef in India (and I’m writing this after being around for 3 months now). He made all vegan for me and also gluten free for an other girl. This experience is tough though, is a lot of hours of yoga, many lessons every day, so please take it seriously and even if it’s possible to do it as a completely beginner, and the teacher will lead you very well through it, I would not recommend.

It’s has been such a wonderful experience, Dinesh and the other teachers are super knowledgeable and I’ve learned valuable aspects of yoga which I bring back to my own teachings. The program is well set and the food has been nutritious & delicious as well. I recommend Om Shanti Om to anyone who wants to learn about traditional yoga in its broadest sense.
