"A highly spiritual & mindful retreat"

Rajiv our yoga, Pranayama & meditation teacher was very good combining the brief overview of the background and reasons of rach technique followed by extensive practice bith mornings and afternoons.

Also the excursions during the day allowed a sneaky peak into the beauty of the Himalayans, Ganges and spiritual sites.

A special thank you to Vishnu Ji the world peace yoga school founder guru who’s high spiritual energy and warm heart is embeded in the place and in everything he does! Om!

"Amazing month"

The love between the students attending. The teachers love and commitment. The magic of Laxman Juhla. The warm and heartfelt smiles of the people living there. I would go back without hesitation but the world is a big place..if you are indecisive about booking this course or not, don't be, it will be worth it!

Thank you for everything!

"An Amazing Experience"

The teachers are very knowledgable and are open to any questions or doubts you may have. The food is always delicious and ready for you to eat and the chef is willing to better fit your needs as he is very kind.

The rooms are large with a good working fan and the option to add air conditioning. Staff is always willing to help you and answer questions and provide best experience. The views from common areas is absolutely breath taking and worth seeing. This was an amazing journey and I grew so much as a person. I came out with so much more knowledge and wisdom than expected and felt so blessed to be apart of the Work Peace Yoga School family.

"unexpected life changing-journey!!"

The teachers are enthusiastic in teaching and demonstrate a yogi lifestyle and mindset themselves. They created a good environment which stimulates an exchange of thoughts between students. learn a lot about myself and life here.

Also, they teach much more than the official 200-hr requirement, we learn a lot about Ayurveda (i love that!), yoga therapy (which is in 300-hr), etc.

"Magic holiday"

Everything. After adjusting to the chaos in the streets I got the magic of Rishikesh. The power of river Ganga, on the beaches you feel it's sound and it's energy, you understand why it's considered divine. In the evening the mountains sorround Rishikesh as if they were black clouds against the grey sky and the tows echoes all the prayers coming from the ashrams. People are awesome, not attached to money, welcoming and spiritual. Yoga teachers are amazing, very well prepared and able to help you correcting the postures in a very professional way. I'll go back.

Janna Tiete

from Germany, March 2018

During my 6-day Yoga Retreat everybody was helpful, friendly and just wanted the best for us...they really care about their students. They made everything possible what we would liked to experience and took us on some unexpected adventures.

Holistic program during the day..different yoga classes: Hatha, Pranayam, Ashtanga Vinyasa and Meditation and an daily excursion.

I felt like having a little family around me.

"You enjoy things as you wanna enjoy them"

The energy of the people you meet in a yoga retreat is absolutely beautiful, I learned a lot from all my classmates and we where constantly charing questions and very nice energy. I changed both physically and mentally, because I got way much more flexible and I started learn how to live in the present and I love it.

India is not the cleanest nor organized country but if you have good attitude you will enjoy it a looot. To be honest it all depend on you. It is n entire experience, I absolutely recomend it.

Thanks very much for this experience
