About Rishikul Yogshala
"Happiness is within and the source is the center of consciousness, love, and wisdom" - Swami Rama
At Rishikul Yogshala our aim is to spread the wisdom of yoga through our Yoga Alliance accredited 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 offered an all round approach for yoga lovers and enthusiasts from across the globe.
With news from the West of how yoga was beginning to lose it's true meaning it was our believe that we could re-educate the world undertaking the spiritual messages of Swami Rama, of whose teachings 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 200hour Yoga Teacher Training Course that same year. Since these beginnings we have grown in popularity and we are now ranked high amongst the best in Rishikesh. Our teaching teams are well regarded figures and continue to inspire our students beyond the time they spent training with us.
Blending the modern and traditional approaches has allowed us to provide courses to suite everyone with comfort and ease. Structured under the guidance and requirements of Yoga Alliance, these courses include Ashtanga Vinyasa, Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.
Acquiring a holistic approach, we aim to increase awareness for joyful and simple living. Paving way to reach the inner mind, we practice specific yoga techniques that are useful for everyone. Our TTC programmes allow the mind to regain peace and the body to recover its beauty and vital stamina.
Located in the beautiful & spiritually-heightened Rishikesh valley in India, at the root valley of the exotic Himalayan mountain range, Rishikul Yogshala is shares the scenic beauty around. 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 help one find mental freedom, tranquility, peace and spiritual oneness.
The spiritual setting of Rishikesh acts as a headquarters for our dedicated alumni of teachers. We have spread our wings and now offer trainings across inspirational locations in Kerala, Dharmsala and Nepal, each with a strong tie to the roots of yoga and its principles.
One thing we hear time and time again from all our graduating students is how much the course impacted on their lives, from the food they ate, the places they visited and the friends they made.
Our courteous staff are always willing to fulfil 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 around the world. 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 the teachers builds a support system amongst the guests, where they motivate each other to perform better. We believe in harbouring 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.
