    Om Shanti Om yoga training school fell short of its reputation, especially during the September 2023 YTT 200hrs course. Despite glossy promises in their social media posts, the reality was disappointing. The owner's failure to ensure a safe environment, despite assurances of tranquillity, led to constant disruptions from ongoing construction in Tapovan. The original spirit of the school seems to have been sacrificed for profit, evident in the owner's neglect and denial of our pleas for help. Teachers, commendably professional amid the chaos, couldn't overcome the unsuitable surroundings. The course, once in the serene Ram Jhula, suffered in Tapovan due to relentless unbearable noise, dust, and a generally unfit atmosphere. Attempts to communicate with the owner, who was busy teaching in Russia instead of being with us in Rishikesh, were met with denial and eventual silence, leaving us without the support promised. Ultimately, the school's recent shift towards cost savings resulted in an overall poor experience, tarnishing its once-great reputation. It's disheartening to witness the decline from a previously excellent institution.

    I didn't get chance to meet with the owner and main teacher of the School. This school is owned and run by a couple and both of them were traveling when I attended the School. The teachers were really good. No complains about teachers and study. Management was really bad, Bad means Bad. I can give 10 out of 10 for the teachers. 0 for management..

    A magical space where holistic education was provided - an amazingly comprehensive and complete course; where like-minded people gathered. Guru Jis were very dedicated and helpful, the hospitality was great, and the food was tasty and amazing! I am blessed to have the opportunity to experience my yoga journey with Om Shanti Om, a phenomenal experience and a time that I will never forget.

    Om Shanti Om truly is the best Yoga school. They provided such an in dept curriculum that included anatomy, pranayama, Ayurveda, Yoga Philosophy and my favorite; yoga alignment. From the moment I arrived, I was treated like family. They always looked out for my well being. Even years later, they remember me and I can reach out to any of the teachers for personal and professional advise. I am the well rounded teacher that I am because of the education I received at Om Shanti Om. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to go to India and obtain my certification through this school.

    A truly wonderful experience. A beautiful space and facilities, professional and humble staff, great content and practical teaching, beautiful ceremonies. I’m grateful to have studied there, I would highly recommend this training to anyone who is considering becoming a yoga teacher.
