All the yoga teacher training courses are residential, and all of our accommodation is onsite. Class sizes are small at Om Yoga Academy. This means students have lots of direct contact with teachers. Unlike some schools, especially in Rishikesh, that can have over thirty students, the academy has a maximum capacity of ten. Small size group learning allows for a more sincere passing of knowledge. This is in line with the ancient traditions of Yoga, that has always stressed the passing of knowledge from master to student in a very direct and personal manner. As a result they leave a much more accomplished Yoga practitioner and teacher.

The Academy is a professional and credible Yoga school. It exceeds standards across the board. The accommodation is very clean, and one of the most well kept in Rishikesh, something the school prides itself on. The sattvic food (traditional yogic diet) is made fresh on the premise daily. The environment at Om Yoga Academy is welcoming and homely. Thus, an ambiance that allows students to feel comfortable and at ease.  This adds to the fantastic experience of embarking on a Yoga Teacher Training Certification (YTTC) in Rishikesh.
