"Happiness is within and the source is the center of consciousness, love, and wisdom" - Swami Rama
At Rishikul Yogshala, our purpose is to reach out the science of health and wellness across the globe with our certified yoga teacher training programs and specialized yoga, meditation and spirituality retreats. Our aim is to spread the wisdom of yoga through our Yoga Alliance accredited 200, 300 and 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training courses.
We were founded in 2010 in Rishikesh, the birth place of yoga, with the vision to inspire budding yogis who have the passion to deepen their knowledge and experience of yoga with a strong root in Indian tradition. We practice yoga with the goodness of Ayurveda and offer a holistic approach for yoga lovers and enthusiasts from across the globe.
With news from the West of how yoga was beginning to lose its true meaning, it was our belief that we could re-educate the globe undertaking the spiritual messages of Swami Rama, teachings of whom we still follow.
Gaining accreditation from the Yoga Alliance International in 2011, followed by the Yoga Alliance USA in 2013, we started offering professional courses completing our first 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course in the same year. Since these beginnings, we have grown in popularity and we are now ranked high amongst the best yoga schools in India and abroad along with being one of the highly reviewed yoga schools. Our teaching teams are well-regarded figures and continue to inspire our students even after completion of their training.
Blending the modern and traditional approaches has allowed us to provide courses to suit everyone with comfort and ease. Structured under the guidance and requirements of Yoga Alliance, these courses include Ashtanga Vinyasa, Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama, Yoga Philosophy, Mantra Yoga, and many more.
Acquiring a holistic approach, we aim to increase awareness for a joyful and simple living. Paving way to reach the inner mind, we practice specific yoga techniques that are useful for everyone. Our TTC programs allow the mind to regain peace and the body to recover its beauty and vital stamina.
Our branches are located in the some of the most beautiful & spiritually-heightened destinations such as Rishikesh, Kerala, Nepal, Mysore, Khajuraho, Dharamsala, Vietnam, and Thailand. We focus on removing stress, tension, ego and unwanted thoughts by adapting a holistic & traditional philosophy, expanding one’s own consciousness, and by using its method of practice. The peaceful and lush green surroundings offer the ideal solace to find mental freedom, tranquility, peace and spiritual oneness.
The spiritual setting and the yogic treasures of Rishikesh, India led us to set up our headquarters on its holy land. From here, we continued to spread our wings and offer our yoga training programs and retreats in Kerala, Dharamsala, Nepal, and others, each place with a strong tie to the roots of yoga and its principles.
We continue to hear this time to time from a number of graduating students that how much the course has impacted their lives, from the food they ate, the places they visited, the intensive teachings they underwent and, the friends they made.
Our courteous staff is always willing to fulfill the needs of our guests and students; creating an experience and not just an adjustment of lifestyle. Conducting fun activities on weekends, we create an environment of abundance, happiness, wellness, and togetherness.
Allowing cultures to come and interact under one roof, we appreciate the privilege we receive of uniting the yoga community across the globe. When we see different souls pouring their hearts out to each other, we feel that our aim is being met. The environment of fitness, wellness, and strength created by our teachers builds a support system amongst the students, where they motivate each other to perform better. We believe in harboring mutual friendships even after our students depart. Taking a yoga teacher training with Rishikul Yogshala goes far beyond gaining a certificate; it is a life-changing experience to cherish.
