Studying in Rishikesh will give you the opportunity to learn from, and amongst, people whose lives revolve around yoga. Even the Beatles found their share of enlightenment here! The enjoyment they found in this inspiring place contributed to their most productive period.
Colloquially dubbed India’s center for Yoga, Rishikesh is a hub for learning and thought— it is the ideal atmosphere for yoga teacher training. The standards for yoga training here are remarkably high and the environment is conducive for study– it is a nurturing environment for learning yoga. Studying yoga in India is analogous to studying French cuisine in France—it is the source. For many students of yoga, exposure has been filtered through a western lens. While studying yoga in India, you are encouraged to explore outside the limitations of the west: you will be exposed to essence, the foundation and the roots.
Rishikesh, however, is not only the cradle of yoga but a great location to get familiar with the Hindu faith. The holy river Ganges flows through the heart of the town and her banks are doted with a multitude of temples, each dedicated to a different deity. The positive aura created by the joint striving for personal and holistic growth by both yoga aspirants and spiritual visitors surrounds you here in the vibrant and colorful community of Rishikesh.
