    "The course, in general, was very good. I enjoyed my time here and I will recommend the school for friends in the future. The teacher of meditation is full of knowledge and very patient to explain everything. The teachers of the asanas were outstanding while the teacher of philosophy and teacher planning was very good. Rooms are clean and airy facing mountains with attached washroom. People always enjoy eating food here at Hatha Yoga School Rishikesh and I will prefer to have more fruits in the morning. I also had the opportunity to eat some complete fruit such as banana or apple when is something different."
