This school is amazing. I just spent one month there for the 200HR training, the experience was incredible.

Rishikesh is full of schools but I am glad I found this one.

First, the teachers are really knowledgeable, you can be sure you will learn a lot. All of them are very good teachers, and this makes, I think, the difference with other schools. It is usually a different teacher for each lecture and this gives a very good rythm for the day with many different and interesting interactions.

Second, the whole team cares a lot about the students, and not only as yoga students but also on a day to day life. They were always so helpful and kind, trying to find solutions if there were problems, or being there for sick people.

Third, they keep the groups below 15 persons, which is a perfect number to really share this experience with others, in a private environnement and have a personal and adapted training. No drop in classes are possible for outside people, which really differentiates them from other schools, making the teaching even more valuable.

The food was very good, fresh and changing everyday. You can try most of the Indian specialties by staying there, and the chef even adapted its menus to what we would prefer which was very appreciated.

I stayed in a new building, in a very green area, calm and peaceful, with a garden, mango trees, on the other side of the bridge facing Tapovan, but still with a lot of cafés and shops.

And, super nice excursions are provided on sundays !

Our Expert Gurus

Best Yoga Teachers - Rishikesh, India


Hatha Yoga & Ashtanga Vinyasa

Born in the lap of the holy Ganges, at the foot of the Bhootnath Shiva temple, in the midst of Himalayan forests, Dhirendra ji presents himself as a nature lover and spiritual seeker. Starting from one of the oldest, most prestigious and traditional schools in Rishikesh at the age of 5, Dhirendra believes that a mystical force drew him to yoga while once practicing asana during a fitness class in school. It was and under the able guidance of his guru Narendra Gusain who continued to practice asanas, following a sattvic diet and attend music classes that enabled him to practice yoga religiously. His dedication was such that there were times when he would practice till his body ached, it was at this point that he realized that outward praise and accolades meant nothing and the real meaning of yoga was that you could measure yourself from body, mind and spirit. The next phase of his training was under Guru Nalin Sharma, under whom he studied yoga philosophy and spiritual development and finally under Guru Roshan Singh, Dhirendra received lessons on personal development. When his three gurus thought he was ready, Dhirendra started the yoga school with one goal - to help other practitioners realize their full potential on their yoga journey.

Yogkulam truly is a yoga family. Very quickly we became like a family, sharing thoughts, ideas, dreams and cultural exchange. It was such a humbling experience, the teachers were great, overall the course syllabus is very complete. I learned so much about the lifelong journey that yoga represents. It was challenging everyday but there Is nothing that I regret coming to yogkulam. The food everyday was so delicious and nutritious, Sunil really took care of us. It was such a fresh and fun training because the teachers are young and very knowledgeable. Special thanks to Amitji and Jituji, our asana and theory teachers, and my dear friends!

I recently completed my 200 hour online teacher training with Rishikesh yogkulam and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to undertake a teacher training course. Don't look any further! The teachers are incredibly knowledgeable, and are always available to answer any question. I loved the holistic approach to the curriculum with Hatha Asana, Ayurveda, Philosophy, Pranayama, and Meditation training. This holistic approach to teacher training helped me develop a wider perspective and learn how each is interconnected. Thank you Rishikesh yogkulam :)

What a phenomenal month-long journey to the self with these guys! Rishikesh Yogkulam went above and beyond my expectations for a TTC. All of the teachers are very relatable and extremely passionate and knowledgeable about their craft. Going into the experience, I wanted to be able to take away as much information as I could to pass along to my future yoga students. This program really prepares you with all the tools you need and gives you the confidence you need to be an amazing yoga teacher. Thank you for sharing your culture and love of yoga with me. Rishikesh Yogkulam is an unforgettable experience. Thank you.

Reena testimonial


200 Hour YTTC


Wow!!! Having completed many courses in my life I left Yogkulam feeling inspired and wanting to learn more. The passion of ancient yogic knowledge oozes from the teachers who with love, respect and dignity hold true to what they believe and what they have been taught. They looked after my inflexible body and on my journey have knowingly or unknowingly taught me to respect and expand on the limitations which I have put on myself throughout my life. The 200Hr TTC is well thought out with great teachings on all levels of the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual aspects of life. Be inspired, feel whole and let go. We create our own walls so when you are ready free yourself. There’s only one place I can recommend in Rishikesh to study yoga and that is Yogkulam. Join the family.

Many new inputs and inspiration for yoga practice. Premises are beautiful and the food is delicious prepared by the smiling chef :). Thank you for the unforgettable and beautiful experience!

I will highly recommend this school, with an extremely professional team of teachers. Because it's a small structure you will benefit from the best attention which is a really important point to choose a school and to progress I think. I took my training course with Amit and I can affirm he is a very good teacher, extremely knowledgeable, and overachiever. Him and all the team will take you high in your practice, your knowledge and will give you the confidence to teach your turn. Rishikesh yogkulam is a good choice!

I followed my previous teacher Dee for my 300 hour yoga teacher training course to his new school which he runs with Amit, both exceptional teachers. My knowledge of asana and alignment has improved especially but all the classes were brilliant. The course is intense but well worth it. The food is delicious and cooked with love every single day. The rooms are light, bright, clean and spacious. The teachers took us on excursions around rishikesh on our day off, invited us to an Indian wedding and threw a lovely birthday celebration for one of the girls on the course. My group was small and we had a very special bond with each other by the end. Can’t thank the teachers enough. I highly recommend this school.

Dhi and Amit gurujis will teach you to be both flexible and strong at the same time. I am so grateful I was able to learn from the best. They have the knowledge and passion to train you to be a better yogi and improve your practice. I have so much respect for both, and am so excited to see that they have teamed up to start a school that will optimally train your body, mind and spirit to be “healthy and happy”. I would highly recommend it to any yogi to learn from Dhi and Amit. You will gain lifelong friends, not just teachers.

Experiencing the subtler realities of Yoga

A once in a lifetime experience, very well crafted and packaged with a lot of love and affection. The team is motivated towards helping everyone achieve the collective goal. 360 degree perspective on the entire circle of Indian philosophy which gives a deeper understanding of what you are doing and why you are doing.Even after the course ends you may leave physically but mentally you are still in Yogkulam."You can check out anytime you like but you may never leave"Highly recommended school.

  • Sundays are your day to relax and rejuvenate! We won't have any lessons scheduled, and there won’t be any meals on Sunday so you can enjoy and explore the cafes around. Additionally, all our excursions will be organized on Sundays, and we'll share the plans with you one day in advance.
  • If you need laundry service, don't worry; we've got you covered! You can get your laundry done at a reasonable price of 20 INR per piece. Simply reach out to our reception for more details, and please remember to pay in cash when you collect your fresh laundry.
  • For your comfort and convenience, our school provides room cleaning service every week. We'll keep you informed about the schedule, so you can always have a tidy space to relax in.
  • To stay hydrated, we have filtered water available in the kitchen area, and there's a water dispenser offering hot, cold, and normal water.
