Yogacharya Ashish Kumar Sharma

Ashish Sharma, the best structural alignment yoga teacher in India
Resident Teacher
Principal Teacher

Ashish Sharma is young and yet very experienced teacher of hatha yoga. He was born, grew up and received his training in Rishikesh located in the foothills of the eternal Himalayas. Ashish’s insatiable longing for a deeper understanding of the practice of hatha yoga has led him to absorb the very essence of the classical hatha yoga. Ashish is a super-talented teacher and a gifted mentor. Practicing under his guidance gives you better control of your body and makes you stronger and more flexible. Your practice, however, only begins there. The power and pliancy of the mind work to develop a stronger will and enhance your intellectual facility, you begin to see the things earlier unseen.

Ashish Sharma has been practicing hatha yoga since 14 years under the guidance of numerous yoga teachers, yet he admits that his first and foremost teacher is his brother Pankaj Sharma, an internationally renowned yoga master. Ashish has been giving classes from 2007, and he has many students coming to Rishikesh every year to learn yoga exclusively from him. Ashish is, probably, one of the best yoga teachers in Rishikesh.

Ashish is teaching hatha yoga with special attention on body alignment and asana geometry. Having deep understanding of biomechanics of the body, he is excellent teacher to give basic comprehension of how body should work in each pose. Ashish pays special attention to people with spine and joint problems, he has very vast background in yoga therapy. Classes of Ashish have been proved essential in building overall understanding of body work for future yoga teachers. In every class, he gives true revelations on healthy engagements of muscles to avoid injuries and what you can do to optimize the effect. His classes are the best to go deeper into the body and gain control of the most subtlest and deepest muscles. That creates a state of very subtle concentration, without excessive effort, effects of which students feel long after the class has finished. Ashish possesses the blend of professional strictness with compassionate softness and good sense of humor, which makes his classes highly effective and energetically balanced.

Ashish Sharma is one of the few teachers of hatha yoga in Rishikesh who teaches the mastery of asana without much physical contact with the student. Ashish, like no other yoga master from the world’s yoga capital, understands what it takes to master asana. Ashish has practiced yoga since his early childhood and began teaching it in 2000.

Humble, modest and very competent in yoga asana, Ashish possesses all the qualities of a true teacher of yoga. Along with Sri Surinder Singh, Ashish is always named among the most popular teachers at the Himalayan Yoga Academy and Rishikesh, the world’s yoga capital.

Testimonials for Yogacharya Ashish Kumar Sharma

It has been a long five week course from 06:00-19:00 mon-sat, day in and day out with not much sleep in between. We all came here thinking we had an idea of what yoga was and quickly discovered we literally knew nothing. But that seed of nothing has now become an internal blossom slowly working its way to the surface- preparing its beauty for the world outside.

The growth and transformation that has occurred here will continue to shape our lives from this day on. The awareness that has been cultivated inside will continue to shine light on the darkest times and keep afloat the pursuit of happiness.

To the friends I made here, may you all go out into the world with new flames inside, sharing the wealth of knowledge we took from HYA.

A big shout out to Saul my Roomie- for putting up with my idiosyncrasies, for sharing the struggles and stresses of YogaTeacherTraining, for being a brother from another mother It would not have been the same without you brother!

Congratulations to all completing the course!!

We can now return to the lives we left and bring new joy to the people who we share this time with.

Reviews by graduates

I had the best time during the teacher training course, the stuff made sure we will get the best teachers in Rishikesh, with a variety of different styles, (which is important as a future teacher to get exposed to).

The course is super professional, I arrived to this course after practicing yoga for 10 years and I've learned a lot about anatomy, alinement, how to instruct a class (you get to instruct few times and it is very helpful and important), learning yoga philosophy, cleansing, pranayama, meditation and visiting temples - I had a great experience.

If you are looking for a yoga TTC that is professional with dignity Himalayan Yoga Academy is the place to go to.
