The most amazing two months of my life I spend it in this beautiful ashram, located in the beautiful Himalayas a little apart from the city and the noise but close enough to go a take a walk in the fun streets of Rishikesh. I am taking the 500 hrs and I am so happy with the curricula and the teachers, every day is a new discover new knowledge, every day surprise me more and more and make me feel that the path is long but amazing. The people here are always smiling and happy, this is not just a school this is home.

Aym is located in a beautiful place in the mountain, not so far away from the city, but long enough to find that peace of mind and a beautiful view of the Himalayas!! People are, and the place is very cozy!! I learned a lot and has helped me to learn about their culture and customs!! I recommend it fully!!.

I had the most amazing experience here at AYM in Rishikesh. The location is excellent because it is away from the hustle and bustle of the noisy city, but close enough to go to the market or get something to drink. Every morning we woke up to Pranayama looking at the sunrise over parts of the Himalayan mountains. The instructor’s courses were what to expect for a beginner except for the Anatomy and Physiology class. I was expecting a level that would have focused more on the Yoga postures. Besides that, it was great. The instructors were all full of positive energy. The facility was standard and better than expected. The food was also better than expected. Some may have gotten sick of the food, but I thought it was suitable for our bodies cleansing process. The incredible part of the school were the people. I met some fantastic people here. I enjoyed getting to know all the staff here. Guru Mahesh, his wife Sonya, and his daughter Samiha were so beautiful. And the rest of the team were so good to me and made me feel at home. Uncle G, Sachin, Amreesh, Sukdeep, Mahavir, and others. I apologize that I cannot spell your names. Thank you all so much for being a part of my spiritual journey. I will never forget you, and I hope to see you again.

The students, teachers, and location make AYM a great school for doing your 200 hour yoga teacher training. Our group of 25 students were a very eclectic group ranging from age 19 to 62. They came from more than 10 different countries, and had had a varied level of yoga experience before joining. Most of all, they were all passionate and curious about yoga and were full of love, support, and joy for each other. Our two yoga asana teachers were amazing. They were knowledgeable, patient and light-heated. Starting each day with an Ashtanga Vinyasa practice quickly built up our strength, stamina, and familiarity with the poses. Later in the day, our awesome Hatha teacher took us slowly through different positions giving us individual attention. We focused on correct alignment and how to assist students. These practical classes were supported by theory classes on anatomy and physiology of asanas giving us a greater understanding of how our bodies work. Yoga philosophy, meditation and pranayama practice and theory classes gave us a holistic approach to yoga as a lifestyle choice. AYM is perfectly located on the outskirts of Rishikesh, the yoga capital of the world. It is near enough to town for convenience, but far enough away for peace and quiet. Up a hill, surrounded by mountains, I cannot think of a nicer place to practice yoga. The huge yoga hall, the rooftop, and even the bedrooms provide stunning views of trees, mountains, and country life. Studying at AYM was a life-changing experience – the support of the students, teachers, and staff made it feel like one big family beginning our yoga teaching journey together.
