I've been wanting to participate in Akhanda Yoga's 200 YTT for years, but was never able to take a whole month off of work to travel to India. One of the biggest upsides of 2020 is that so many trainings moved online and, needless to say, the Akhanda Yoga team managed the transition to the online setting incredibly well. All of the weekend hours of the program are live, virtual contact hours, which makes a big difference compared to other virtual YTTs I looked into. I was thrilled to be a part of the first virtual 200 YTT, but before it started, I was wondering about how the virtual setting would affect a) learning the postures and assisting correctly and b) making connections with fellow students. Re: a) Vishva-Ji is giving great, individual advice on how to adapt postures and I was very surprised by how well that worked virtually. Re: b) I fell in love with our group on day one and would have never thought to be able to connect with so many beautiful souls without ever having met them in person. We just finished the course and already scheduled our next get-together! Thus, I am eternally grateful for this transformational experience and this certainly wasn't the last Akhanda Yoga training I participated in!

If you consider to do a YTT Teacher Training this is the place to go. It is very high quality in teaching, deliciated and very professional. The ashram is kept clean and nice, the food is excellent.
In these days where you can't travel, I can recommend the online teaching and ad hoc sections where teachers for the school share their knowledge. Look for the offerings on the webbsite.

From a yoga teacher, this is the best ashram is Rishikesh!! The ashram is beautiful & clean, classes are strong yet spiritual & staff are lovely. I just stayed for a few days, however I would definitely come back in Winter to do more yoga training.

Although Rishikesh is quieter in monsoon season, which was nice, it was a bit dirty & humid, there was construction everywhere and a lot of facilities/ activities are unavailable.

I decided to stay at the ashram in Rishikesh after reading the very positive reviews and dropping in for the fire pujas and evening kirtan. I was a little uncertain how I would fit in being a somewhat mature yogi but everyone was very friendly and made me feel very welcome. I enjoyed the opportunity to try a new style of yoga which was well balanced and well taught. The food was delicious and accommodation clean and comfortable. Yogi Vishva is a warm, inspiring teacher and I was lucky to see him for a few days before he left to travel and teach elsewhere. If I return to Rishikesh I would definitely try and stay at the ashram again.

I found it perfect for a curious beginner as I am to join the daily routine of the ashram for 700 rp including two yoga classes (6am and 4pm) and three tasty healthy meals. Yoga classes were great, mainly asana with a bit of respiration exercises, meditation and mantra chanting. I wish I stayed longer in Rishikesh to join the ashram for a longer period, but I'll definitely come back. The place is very clean (never take it for granted in India!) and the majority of yogy are foreigners.

My stay here was great the room was clean and the bed was comfortable! The shower and bathroom were pretty nice. Staff members were friendly and kind. Yoga classes were good the teacher was very nice only request would be to have more teachers so that the classes will be a little different everyday. Overall I enjoyed it here and loved the location!

Varsha is a great teacher, all the sessions were well balanced and accessible and I left each class feeling relaxed and happy. The three meals provided were delicious and we always left the dining hall full! I would definitely recommend and I will come back when I return to Rishikesh!
