Yoga Immersion
Kriya Yoga Ashram (Rishikesh, India)
October 31, 2016 - November 9, 2016
Effective for absolute beginners and those with little experience in yoga, this intensive program contains all a beginner in yoga needs: thorough, visual lectures on fundamental yogic disciplines that build one's understanding from the ground up, intense practical workshops and clinics in Asana, Pranayama, Concentration, Relaxation and Restoration with a whole team of teachers, unlimited group and private consultations with teachers, and lots of fun during extracurricular time. For those who only start their yoga journey this is a perfect solution and a great start.
Level I Yoga Intensive
Kriya Yoga Ashram (Rishikesh, India)
October 31, 2016 - November 13, 2016
This course is a complete solution for yoga practitioners of all levels, e.g. from absolute beginners to long-practicing all-knowing yoga ninjas. This program offers intensive fundamental practicums in Asana, basic Pranayama, Concentration as well as Applied Anatomy & Physiology, core Biomechanics & Kinesiology, Voice & Breath Development, Applied Philosophy, Awareness & Self-exploration (a sort of mystical exploration of yogic psychology) and even more disciplines that make a marvellous yogi. Taught by 8 renown yoga teachers (and some more occasional guest teachers), this course creates systemic vision and understanding of the vast and multi-faceted science of Yoga. In short, you acquire heaps of structured knowledge and plenty of professional (read thoroughly-practiced and well-understood) skills, you stay with a bunch of like-minded people at a genuine ashram in the foothills of the Himalaya in a town of Rishikesh, which mass media call the world's capital of yoga. Along with all that, you get clear understanding of Yoga as a system (or, at least, start seeing your own blank spots in understanding the yogic system)! This intensive program WILL change your life (we use this extremely ambitious claim because it's what roughly 90% of our students say about this program.) Read full program description to see why we even dare to use such claims. And, if you’re looking for even more, check out our Intermediate-Advanced intensive program that has even more of yoga magic.
Level II Yoga Intensive
Kriya Yoga Ashram (Rishikesh, India)
October 31, 2016 - November 27, 2016
Suitable for yoga practitioners whose experience ranges from "beginner-intermediate" to " intermediate" to so called "advanced" level. In other words, this program could accommodate beginning yogis as well as those thinking they're a smidge away from perfection and enlightenment. In this journey newbies will grow high above their amateur level and all-knowing yoga wizards will understand that there's nothing to shout about anymore. You'll find everything you wanted to master: various prototypical systems of asana practice taught by three or four different expert asana teachers, theoretical biomechanics and kinesiology behind asana practice, applied anatomy that includes traditional and modern theories which explain mystical effects of ancient and modern tantric yoga practices, fundamentals of pranayama – the heart of yogic science – with lots of practice under a real "guru" of pranayama, philosophical discourses that touch your mind and heart and invoke true explorer in you, and a wealth of higher yoga practices that unleash the essence of your existence and, potentially, the very meaning of life, the Universe and everything. Let the yoga magic change you for good. (Yes, this is a highly ambitious claim; Yes, we mean it.)

Reasons to join our traditional yoga training courses in Rishikesh, India

Why learn yoga in Rishikesh with us? There are many reasons to learn yoga specifically in Rishikesh, India. And, there are solid reasons to do it with our school.

1
Rishikesh is the world's capital of yoga.
It is a common fact that Rishikesh (India) holds the title of the world's yoga capital. And it is rightfully so.
2
According to old scriptures, Rishikesh is the place to attain higher states of mind through yoga.
3
We preserve the tradition of Yoga.
One of our principles has always been to keep the tradition of Yoga uninterrupted. In our teaching, we strongly abide by the classical vision of yoga clearly described by the great work on yoga, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and old scriptures of hatha yoga – Gheranda Samhita, Shiv Samhita and Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Our deep commitment towards the great works of the past does not contradict with the modern approach to yoga. On the contrary, we highly honor modern authors, researchers, scholars, masters who move the understanding of traditional hatha yoga even further through their extensive studies, and encourage our students to be creative in their practice of yoga as long as the correct understanding of its genuine goals is preserved.
4
Most our yoga teachers hold Master's in Yoga.
We are proud to be the only yoga school in Rishikesh, India to have so many highly-educated yoga teachers. Teachers in our school are holders of Master's degree in Yoga and Applied Ayurveda, or have been living and studying in ashrams or with the best yoga, meditation and ayurveda teachers in India. Moreover, we are proud to have Masters who have developed their own style and methodologies in yoga and meditation, as our honored teachers.

Our yoga school is one of the most experienced schools in Rishikesh.
Since our start, we did a tremendous number of yoga trainings which brought us drastic experience and understanding of how a yoga program should really be built. Today, we are proud to claim that our yoga training program is the most advanced training course program in the world's yoga capital and, maybe, in the whole India. See our programs for more details and read students' testimonials.

Rishikesh is probably the most affordable destination for yoga teacher training courses.
Funny to say, Rishikesh today is, perhaps, the cheapest place in the world to undergo yoga training program. Keep in mind, our training program is not of the lowest rate in Rishikesh. Yet, considering the value, it's probably way below average cost at the global scale.

We are located in the geniune-est ashram.
Kriya Yoga Ashram is a traditional ashram in Rishikesh belonging to the tradition of Kriya Yoga established by Swami Paramahamsa Yogananda, the author of the inspiring "Autobiography of a Yogi". Kriya Yoga Ashram preserves long-living spiritual tradition of Rishikesh and is one of the few actual centers of the Himalayan spirituality still existing.
