I just finished 300hrs TTC at D’vine yoga. I enjoyed every single moment here so much that don’t want to leave even after finishing the TTC. 😅 If you are tired of researching and choosing one among all the commercialized “best” yoga schools in Rishikesh, this is the place where you can choose :) I attended TTC at couple of different yoga schools in Rishikesh in the past so from my experience I can tell you this is “the one”. Just attend one class of Swami Ji and you will know what I am saying :D The location of the school is away from the chaos and surrounded by the beautiful nature. In the morning, all the different kind of birds are chirping and at night, you sleep in crickets sound background. Just a perfect place to learn, practice yoga and detach yourself from your old habits. All the staffs are all nice, genuine and attentive all the time. They really made me feel home. And food is so delicious that I never got sick of it. Huge thanks to D’vine team for the beautiful and unforgettable memory. Namaste

D’vine Yoga School is a great place to learn yoga from. I really liked the environment it’s a place a bit outside of the city and more surrounded by nature but also not to far from little Shops & Restaurants . There where times I reached my limits, cause I’m a really active person and longer meditation where not that easy for me but in the end it got better and better to be more relaxed and really calming down. I could feel in the end that I have a better connection to my body, breath and mind. Especially the Pranayama helped me a lot too. You get every day delicious vegetarian Indian food and for breakfast the Choice of Indian food or porridge with fresh fruits. The food was always so yummy !! Overall it was such a life changing experience to learn yoga from D’vine Yoga School. Thank you to all Swami, Teachers other Stuff and my wonderful class-mattes.

The school and swamiji totally personify what any true seeker would aspire for, extensive knowledge and depth of experience, an engaging course content combined with intense practices and authentic energy to wake you up! My experience even in the height of winters was a warm one. Swamiji has all the patience to answer all the existential questions you throw at him, that was my single biggest delight -to examine the truth and bounce of my thoughts as I absorbed the course, the content and practices and arrive at a personal understanding of what being a yogi means to me. The number of schools and paths to your yoga course are many in rishikesh but those who find this school and swamiji's energy will do so quite serendipitously or intuitively. That is the nature of a true seeker and teacher's journey. If you are lucky enough to do so, you will walk away from your course faithful and full of grace, the certificate won't matter, your energy will speak for itself.

Me and my husband choose this school for the 200TTC and it’s definitely worth it. This is an amazing school to start your yoga teacher journey. The teachers are all amazing and professional, Ayush and Anuj are the best. The classes are killer if you put your 100%, but you will see a lot of changes if you do. Thank you guys . Personally I loved all the classes, but extra thanks for Ayush for the morning energyzing ashtanga classes, those were my favourite ones💪. Big Thanks for Swami Ji for the huge spiritual lecture and the lots of personal stories. This 3 weeks was a big big eye opening on all the aspects of human being. Also thanks to Himani for the few hatha classes, the admin staff girls Pushpa and Vaishali. Thanks for the volunteer guys Amit and Manish for the lot of help in all the classes, and a big thank you for all the staff in the kitchen because the food was amazing. All in all if you wondering which school you should choose, go for this one. You are going to be satisfied.👍

Staff is friendly and professional always going above and beyond for their students, not to mention just being amazing passionate kind human beings.
