I recently completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training at Maharishi Yoga Peeth and it was an incredible experience! Himanshu and Madalina are very inspiring and knowledgeable teachers who made learning fun and accessible. I highly recommend this yoga school for anyone looking to deepen their practice or become a certified yoga teacher. Also apart from the yoga we had really nice experiences and I really enjoyed all the excursions in Rhishikesh! Himanshu and Madalina are the best of the best, and I can't wait to continue learning and growing with them in the future!

I just back from 200 hours TT, what an experience, was absolutely fantastic. Himanshu and Madelina are the ultimate dream team, they both work so well together making learning easier and fun to understand. They both have different styles of teaching which works so well and their knowledge is incredible. I was quite anxious as I’ve never traveled on my own or left my family for that length of time, well I will tell you, the 3 weeks went too fast, I could have stayed for six :) I couldn’t recommend anyone enough to book with them, the training is superb and enjoyable, learning fantastic skills to put into practice and teach when you return. I was very fortunate to be there during Holi, we had so much fun, lots of excursions, exploring the culture and celebrations. Quite simply, “They are the best so forget the rest,” I wouldn’t waste time researching other schools. This is the one ⭐️, I can’t wait to progress with more courses with Maharishi Yoga Peeth 🙏

I would like to wholeheartedly recommend Maharishi Yoga Peeth to all those who embarked on the path of yoga and mindful living. I was participating in 200 hours teacher trainings organized by Maharishi Yoga Peeth in Rishikesh in August 2022 and I can say that this experience became invaluable for me. First of all, I would like to note the professionalism of the teachers, their excellent education and individual approach to each student. As part of the learning process, the human factor always plays a very important role. The teachers of Maharishi Yoga Peeth do everything so that every class goes smoothly and for the benefit of each student. Also, one cannot fail to note the excellent organization of the schedule and the inclusion of wonderful excursions and activities that will be remembered for a lifetime. If you participate in school activities such as retreats and yoga teachers trainings, you can be sure of quality food, sincere responsiveness in case of questions and a high level of competence. Thank you Madalina and Himanshu for such a wonderful experience!!! Looking forward to attending more event organized by You!
