    The staff of Vishwashanty really went out of their way to make sure we were happy, comfortable and that all our needs were meet, the location and food was way above all the other locations in all of Rishikesh, and I got an amazing education with a lot of way advanced teaching that was over and above the standard requirements that is not offered at any other yoga schools in this area. I am more then satisfied with the price and quality of my education. From Tripadvisor

    Vishwa Shanti was a great experience for me, super clean accommodations and the yoga hall was modern, clean and wet mopped daily. The school is located in the heart of Ramjhula that is a very small spiritual town with little cars and mostly temples and ashrams and lots of walking market streets. The Yoga Hall is located on the top floor of a 5 star hotel with huge glass windows on all 4 sides. The teachers were knowledgeable and really cared that I was getting the education and that I understood every detail. We had 4 teachers, Alignment, Shatkarma & Yoga, Philosophy and Anatomy. I did the 200hr and 300hr back to back so i got the 500hr education. I was surprised that not many schools provide the 300hr and hardly any of them do it back to back for the 500hr experience. I was at this same location for 8 1/2 weeks, so it was important that it was clean and healthy and then I was comfortable and confident at the location and with all the teachers. It felt more like a family then a school, like i was being homeschooled to be a master yoga instructor. For me I was not there to learn how to teach a yoga class, I was there to lean how to run a roga school myself, how to teach others to be teachers. This is a higher level of education teaching teachers. Over all very happy and well educated from Vishwa Shanti and opening my own yoga school in Hawaii USA. From Tripadvisor

    Vishwa Shanti Yoga School operates three types of yoga classes all round the year - 200 hour, 300 hour and 500 hour yoga teacher training courses. These courses are 28 days, 31 days and 60 days long. I am very much impressed by the instructors, both of philosophical and practical classes. The school accommodates maximum 20 students per session.
