      amazing course and teaching

    Studying with Vinay at Jeevmoksha Yoga Gurukul was a life enhancing experience for me. Vinay is a teacher with a lineage that allows students to tap into an authentic, intense and in-depth yoga training. The course isn’t a production line … classes are small enough so that students receive teaching that is tailored to their individual needs. I made friendships with other students that I still cherish. And the setting is perfect. It was so good, I went back. Highly recommended.

      I recommend it

    My 200 hour teacher training at Jeevmoksha was a profoundly transformative experience. Vinay, the main facilitator, is extremely knowledgeable, and was always respectful, thoughtful and available to dig deeper into my areas of interest. Ashish, as asanas teacher, had always a nice energy. He is really skilled physically, and really good at transfering his knowledge. The course was comprehensive of Yoga theory as well as philosophy and anatomy. It connected really thoroughly the traditional aspects to the more scientific ones. The practice included asanas, pranayamas, shatkarmas, meditation and chanting. All people involved in the course, from the teachers to the cooks, were extremely sincere, caring and loving. They helped me found my "home", and created the right circumstances for me to start a wonderful spiritual journey. Once back in the West, I started teaching: I still have to learn a lot, but the course gave me a strong base to support people on the start of their self-discovery process.

      Absolutely Amazing Experience

    Amazing view overlooking Rishikesh and the Ganga. Personal approach with attention to the individual needs of the students. Deeply moving asana classes with a nice dose of pranayam, mantra, and meditation. I found the lectures to be incredibly informed and thought provoking. Mr. Vinay really knows his stuff. There is no question that the teachers at Jeevmoksha not only practice what they teach, they love it as well!

      If you are looking for Yoga Training in Rishikesh, look no further - you've found it!

    My wife & I were looking for a 200hour teacher training course & both felt that Rishikesh, "the spiritual home of yoga" would be the perfect place do it. While doing research for available courses we were a little overwhelmed by many places offering courses but none of them felt right until we read about Jeevmoksha. The course was fantastic, Vinay is an inspiring person to just do 1 class with never mind undertaking a 200hour course. He teaches with a true depth of knowledge & genuine care. We wanted our yoga training to be based in the foundations of the practise & that's what I feel we got with Jeevmoksha. You are learning & practising Hatha & you receive a very detailed theory to backup the physical practise. The teachers, Vinay & Ashish in particular, taught us so much, we were challenged but also supported all the way through. The location of Jeevmoksha was great, you are outside of Rishikesh town but can walk in easily in 15 mins. It was nice to be slightly separated from the hustle & bustle while still able to enjoy all that Laxman Jula has to offer. For me the thing I loved though was that within 10minutes you could be on the banks of the Ganges & swimming in the most crystal clear water, it's cold & you can feel that it's just melted off the mountains. In a town that is full of Yoga courses, Jeevmoksha offers something very special & I can't recommend them highly enough. I know we would go back & we still keeping looking at dates to return for our 300hour. If you are looking for a great course in Rishikesh, you've found it.

      Inspiring teacher

    The 200 hour yoga teacher training course was amazing. Vinay is a very knowledgeable teacher and very inspiring. He respects the tradition and has great intuition on what every student in his class needs. It definitely was the boost I needed to deepen my own practice and to be able to teach other people. He can really touch you on a deeper level than most other teachers do. It's pure and honest. Highly recommended; you will not find a better teacher in Rishikesh!

      Bellissima esperienza, intensa pratica e insegnamenti profondi

    Un'esperienza profonda, un posto magico come solo l'india sa offrire e un insegnante davvero sapiente ha reso questo soggiorno studio davvero indimenticabile. il corso è ben strutturato e spazia dalla pratica yoga come asana e pranayama fino a trattare l'anatomia e la fisiologia del corpo. molto spazio anche alla parte filosofica di cui il maestro è sapiente. Acharya Vinay è un'ottima guida e segue passo a passo, molto disponibile ed esaustivo, mi sono trovato davvero bene con lui e la sua famiglia. Si è un corso molto intenso ma sicuramente ne vale la pena se si ha questo tipo di passione. lo consiglio a tutti e sicuramente tornerò da lui per approfondire lo studio dell'hatha yoga. Grande esperienza...
