Testimonials

What a wonderful experience! It was my first time in India and I booked the retreat for a break from the travel lifestyle. I was welcomed by two of the teachers at the center who were very gentle and well behaved. I felt supported in my yoga and meditation practice and enjoyed taking the time out to focus on the foundations of both practices. I would say this retreat is suitable for all levels but best for beginners as the teachers really breakdown the poses in an intelligent and timely manner.

I had done very little yoga before attending Ganga Yoga Academy for my first retreat. I was totally blown away about how yoga and meditation can help me mentally and physically. It had been a tough year and this retreat was just the tonic I needed to kickstart a change in my life. It's a beautiful place that has been developed perfectly in this ancient spiritual town - Rishikesh. The energy in the place is wonderful and the local surroundings are worth an exploration. It was truly an experience to remember.

Ganga Yoga Academy is not just a retreat centre, it's a truly magical experience. Ganga Yoga Academy is situated in a local, traditional environment of Rishikesh (about 30 mins from Dehradun; where I landed off my flight). I can safely say I had the most amazing time at GYA; the best week of my like, in fact. The beautiful people, the meditation, the yoga, the wonderful locals, the friendships, the massages, the Dharma talks and not to mention, the most delicious vegan food!
