Life changing experience! I have traveled the world over my 58 years on this earth and never experienced this deep, thought provoking guidance. I just wanted to improve my yoga practice. I came knowing NOTHING but I wanted to do correct poses. As I stated, I am 58 years young and only tried yoga a year ago with DVDs and you tube. I recommend this specific school because their is something amazing going on here up in the lush beautiful green hills of Rishikesh, India. Your mind is the only thing holding you back. I found Vinyasa Yoga Academy online while searching for schools. I was drawn to this school and a year later was blessed to come learn not only physical yoga but SO MUCH MORE. I believe, never in the states could I have had this experience for 1/3 the cost AND included room and board and the best weekly outings on our day off.

I was looking for a yoga school to go on Rishikesh, after many research I like their reviews and decide to go to Vinyasana Yoga Academy in the end of the year. But de pandemia cames and this plan was over. One day I get to the site to see the class for the next year, and for my surprise they have now online course. Truly it was one of the best choices I had ever made! The teacher have many many knowledge, always answered our questions, explaining the smal details af each asana, the books were incredible with all information and details that I needed. I recomend this online course for anyone who wants to start or go deeper on your journey as yoga teacher, because after doing this I fell that the knowledge is something that I will pass all my life learning and evolving on it! Namaste to all my teachers, and I can't wait for the 300h course!
