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.
