What makes Vinyasa Yoga School different?
Study yoga where it all began! Experience bliss in Rishikesh, a holy city nested between the sacred Ganga river and the magnificent Himalayan mountains.
Unlike other courses with 50-100+ students, we split our classes into groups of 15 people and cap our courses at 45 students. You’ll have more opportunities for feedback, questions, and most importantly time to practice teaching.
Our world-class faculty includes Masters in Yoga. Our teachers have taught all across India, including training the Indian Army, and leading courses for the Indian government. Did we mention we’re also all fluent in English?
Your tuition directly helps fund our volunteer projects. Vinyasa Yoga Foundation provides free food around local ashrams and temples in Rishikesh. We’re also working on a huge initiative to build a free school and community temple for free education and yoga classes.

"An eye-opening and expansive experience"
"What I liked the most about the course is how the teachers gave a unique part of themselves and what they've learned about yoga, and they delivered it in a way that was real and genuine. I've really enjoyed my time here and it's been such a privilege to be under their tuition." - Adam
What makes our sanctuary amazing?

Your own private room and bathroom to take comfort in
Three nutritious yogic meals a day to re-energize you throughout the day
Year-round solar-powered water heating system for a soothing warm shower after a full day of practice

In contrast to other yoga schools, all of these creature comforts are included with your tuition.
"I understand myself in a very profound way now"
"The teachers are a wonderful mix of intelligence, dedication, compassion, and love. These are people that have dedicated their lives to yoga. Because of that, I have gained so much knowledge and understanding, love and compassion that will follow me and touch my own students for the rest of my life." - Dana
Your tuition also helps fund our volunteer projects in Rishikesh
In 2009, we started Vinyasa Yoga Foundation as a non-profit and educational organization to help address the needs of those less fortunate in Rishikesh and to give back to our community.
Here are some of our projects:
Every month we go to local ashrams and temples in Rishikesh to provide free food and nourishment to those in need.
We’re in the early phases of providing free education to young children whose families can’t afford to send them to public school.
We’re in the early phases of constructing a temple to serve as a community center, where people can eat free meals and learn how to integrate yoga into their lives for well-being and happiness.
