Kundalini Yoga School in Rishikesh

Location & Transportation


The easiest way to reach Rishikesh is arriving to Delhi and taking a taxi or bus from there to Rishikesh, if this is your first time in India we suggest you to take a flight to Dehradun and from there is only a 30 minute drive to get to the school, we happily can pick you up at the airport on demand for free.

From Delhi airport to Rishikesh by car is a 6 hours journey. We have a transportation package for US$ 150 which will cover your airport pick-up, transfer from Delhi to Rishikesh (by car) and after completion of the course transfer back from Rishikesh to Delhi. One way transportation i.e. Delhi airport to Rishikesh can also be availed for US$ 75. In case, your flight arrives late night and you want to stay overnight in Delhi, airport pick-up cost will be US$ 25 and a reasonably good accommodation at a hotel in Delhi can be arranged for US$ 40 or 50. Our travel arrangements are executed under the supervision of professionals and we are always ready with a back-up plan, in case of emergencies. Another good option is to travel by train (airport to New Delhi train station by car, then by train to Haridwar and from Haridwar to Rishikesh by car). Travel by bus is quite cheap between 300 and 1000 rupees but is a bit inconvenient for first time visitors.

Student Stories

Kundalini Yoga Ashram is one of the best place to get Yoga teacher Training in Rishikesh.The teachers, accommodation are very good and the founder, Guru Ji is very peaceful.I highly recommend this place.

Nicole Hnin

I recently completed 200 hours of Kundalini and 300 hours of Holistic training at Kundalini Yoga Ashram. The teachers were amazing, my life is forever changed. The food was really good too. My favorite part is that this is an authentic ashram, a lot of the other ones are more touristy. The Guru and his family live on site, so its kind of like doing a homestay. It's really special. I cannot wait to return!

What an amazing place. A beautiful location and really really really competent and engaging teachers. Lovely food, friendly staff and a really amazing experience. I learnt so much in such a short space of time. The course was pretty intensive but I like things like that. I haven't felt this fit, healthy or happy in a really long time and I'm so glad I came. I did 200 hours kundalini yoga teacher training and will be back to do more. Would have stayed if my visa wasn't running out, for sure. Thank you
