After weeks of research I finally decided to pursue my 200 Hour Teacher Training in Rishikesh at Kaivalya Yoga School. I arrived into Kaivalya Yoga idyllic Yoga Village with a warm welcoming and a cup of chai. The course started the next morning at dawn, A day filled with intense yoga practice, insightful lectures and self discovery within your own practice and others. The relaxed atmosphere at the Shala and vast knowledge and experience of the teachers was truly inspiring. -Jessica Todd Freelance Dance Artist.
Amit, We can’t thank you enough for the last two weeks. We leave Rishikesh with mixed feelings, But with a lot of inspiration and motivation to continue this beautiful path, you have shown us. We don’t take for granted meeting such a committed teacher, with a clear and professional vision of how yoga should be practiced. We hope our paths will meet again in the future in one continent or another. With much love and appreciation. -Joseph and Maayan, Israel

The way yoga is taught at Kaivalya Yoga is just perfect. The teachers share each and every aspect of yoga. They have equal emphasis on asanas, pranayamas and meditation. Thank you

In March 2013, I had the opportunity to practice with Kaivalya Yoga at Rishikesh, India. Kaivalya Yoga offers Teacher Training and Intensive Practice Programs, which are Hatha based, however they are not rigid or linear in their teaching method. He mixes specific exercises within his programs to help develop strength and flexibility in the back and hips and for jump throughs. This extra practice was great for my stiff body, which was developed through years of running and stress. Kaivalya Yoga works hard to develop their students in the Asanas, philosophy, pranyamas and meditation. It is not just Kaivalya Yoga that works hard as their students are expected to make an effort as well, in a fun atmosphere. My time spent practicing intensive yoga with Kaivalya Yoga was very beneficial, as my practice moved forward and I had the opportunity to meet some great people. I would recommend this opportunity to any aspiring teachers, or those wishing to further develop their practice. My plan is to return in the future. -Yin I love Yoga, Canada
I came to Kaivalya Yoga yoga teacher training for one month and underwent a life changing experience. I saw my physical practice improve greatly over the four week course as well as my attitude and understanding of yoga and the philosophy behind it. Kaivalya Yoga has a unique style of teaching which encourages you to push yourself to your personal maximum using his knowledge and support. I would highly recommend Kaivalya Yoga yoga to any level, beginner or advanced-because as I learned there is always room for improvement. Kaivalya Yoga takes his students and yoga very serious but manages to bring light and fun to the practice with his charasmatic and fun vibe. Anyone looking to learn yoga or improve their practice in a beautiful, tropical outdoor space with a great atmosphere-Kaivalya Yoga shala is your place! -Lauren Pitts
