Why Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India?

Rishikesh is situated on the foothills of Himalayas, besides the Ganges River, in India’s northern state of Uttrakhand. It is renowned as the ‘Yoga Capital of the World‘ and Ganges most sacred river in India. This city is considered an alcohol free and vegetarian town and it is surrounded by the forest and hills. It is known as the pilgrimage place and regarded as one of the holiest places on earth. The sages and saints have been in Rishikesh since ancient times to meditate in search of higher knowledge.

Rishikesh is a magnet for spiritual seekers and mother land of Yoga and Meditation. This is why the Beatles came to Rishikesh in 1968 in ‘Chaurasi Kutiya Ashram’ for transcendental meditation. In the evening the supernatural breeze blows down the valley, setting shrine bells ringing. There are so many things to do in Rishikesh like visiting Beatles ashram, white water rafting, jungle safaris, camping, ayurvedic cooking & massage, trekking, water falls, visiting temples and ashrams and of course taking a dip in the holy Ganges which is said to completely purify you.

I really recommend this school for all students who don’t want to come to an industry of yoga with too many people. This school is very friendly as a family. Teachers are amazing! A lot of knowledge. I’ve done my 200 hour Yoga teacher training course in this school 2 years ago, and come back each year to visit them in Rishikesh.
