Some Main Topics
The two words, "Ha" (Sun) and "Tha" (Moon), make up the word "Hatha," which is of Sanskrit origin. Hatha Yoga simply means a stubborn or rigid type of yoga. This type of yoga is for maintaining the balance between the body, mind, and spirit. Hatha Yoga includes a complete set of physical postures, or asanas, with different breathing techniques. It is an ancient technique that has been practiced by people for a long time. Lord Shiva, also known as Adiyogi, discovers yoga and all its styles. So you can link Hatha yoga to Shaivism, but later on, Siddhas and Naths continue the tradition. The followers of Goraknath were also involved in this practice. Hatha Yoga is an essential style of yoga if you are at the beginner level.
Hatha Yoga is way more than doing asanas in a continuous series. It is actually a divine way to attain the finest stage of salvation. Hatha is also practiced to purify the Pingla Nadi (connected with the sun energy of the body) and the Ida Nadi (connected with the moon energy of the body). Nadis are also known as the energy channels of the body.
Rishikesh Yogkulam conducts a beginner-level course of 200 hours of yoga teacher training in Rishikesh. The course explains Hatha Yoga through theoretical and practical classes taught by experienced gurus of the school. We also assist you in getting the most out of Hatha Yoga by doing it in the most enjoyable way possible.
Vinyasa Yoga simply helps you link every asana with breathing. It tells you how to move from one posture to another by making the right synchronization of the breath. The thing that makes a Vinyasa class different from other yoga classes is that no two Vinyasa classes are alike. There are a variety of postures in the Vinyasa style of yoga. The sequence is the same, but there is always variation in the asanas.
Surya Namaskar, also known as a "Sun Salutation," is the most common yet most complex type of Vinyasa style. While performing Surya Namaskar, proper attention is given to the inhalation and exhalation processes. Its every movement is maintained by the inhalation and exhalation of the breath.It is highly beneficial for keeping you active while maintaining your health. Whether it's about physical fitness, mental fitness, or emotional growth, Vinyasa Yoga is the best in every aspect.
Rishikesh Yogkulam's 200-Hour Yoga TTC in Rishikesh includes theoretical and practical classes in the Vinyasa Style of Yoga. The theoretical class explains the origin of Vinyasa yoga and how it evolved over time. The practical class helps you gain the confidence to perform and teach vinyasa asanas with confidence.
The word Ashtanga is a Sanskrit word, formed by the combination of two words, "Ashta," which means "eight," and "Anga," which means "limb." It is an eight-limb yoga technique that paves the way to the path of Samadhi. These eight limbs are also mentioned in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The second part of Dwitya Pada, Sadhana Pada of Patanjali Yoga Sutras, states the shloka, "Yama-niyama-asana-pranayama-pratyahara-dharana-dyana-samadhyaya-astavangani," which means "Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi are the eight limbs of Yoga.".
Maharishi Patanjali has called yoga the oldest technique to stabilize the restlessness of the mind. In the Yoga Sutras, he describes the eight-limbed Ashtanga Yoga for physical, mental, and spiritual purification, along with complete well-being. The 200-hour yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh demands rigorous strength and flexibility.
Rishikesh Yogkulam conducts 200 Hours Yoga in Rishikesh, covering Ashtanga Yoga. The class starts with the third limb of the Ashtanga style, i.e., asana. Asana is a class of physical workouts that gives you mental, emotional, and spiritual satisfaction.
Mental health is as important as physical health. You do much to keep yourself physically fit, but how about staying mentally fit? It also needs proper exercise. Meditation is a practice that assists you in developing a calm and fit mind. It builds strong mental fitness. But if you are thinking that it is as simple as it seems, then you definitely need to understand that it is much more than a set of various exercises. It is a technique that necessitates focused attention and awareness.
When your chitta, or soul, is in good health, you can concentrate on any task, including exercise. The 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh describes various types of meditation. From making you relax to reducing anxiety and stress, meditation is believed to be a tool to improve overall health and fitness. It is not a new practice; indeed, it has been practiced by sages and saints long ago. They use it as a powerful tool to remove hindrances and obstacles in their path.
The practice of meditation doesn't seem easy, but we ensure that we make it easy for you. The well-trained masters of meditation teach you and help you build focus and concentration during the 200-Hour Yoga TTC in Rishikesh. Teachers and professionals at Rishikesh Yogkulam will assist you in this journey, making your 100-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh more beneficial and successful. Stay calm and keep practicing to perform it with greater benefits.
Pranayama is a Sanskrit word formed from two words: "Prana" means "life energy,", and "Yama" means "control." Thus, pranayama is the practice of controlling life force or energy. It regulates the breath and is an essential practice for maintaining physical and mental wellness. Pranayama includes a particular sequence of inhalation, holding, and exhalation. The practice frees you from disturbing emotional, spiritual, and mental cycles. Doing it regularly will bring positive changes to your whole body.
Pranayama can be performed alone as a single class or practice and can also be practiced with yoga like asanas (yoga postures) and dhyana (meditation). Pranayama itself is a beneficial practice, but when it gets involved with other activities, it provides a large number of benefits. It is due to the effects of breathing exercises and mindfulness activities. The ultimate goal of pranayama is to build a connection between your body and mind while supplying enough oxygen to your body and removing toxins. The benefits are not only physical but also psychological.
When you read about pranayama, you find it to be a simple practice of three steps. The practice starts by breathing in, proceeds by holding it for a few microseconds, and ends by breathing out. Though it seems simple, it is not, and you definitely need a trainer to start practicing it. At Rishikesh Yogkulam, professional trainers or teachers help you by giving you the proper guidance and teachings to let you perform Pranayama with ease.

Rishikesh Yogkulam served to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. Originally, while searching for schools in India, I felt overwhelmed with the amount of schools in the city that all had the same outline. I chose Yogkulam after hearing horror stories about fake schools and scams and found Yogkulam through Instagram, Facebook and the official website with all of the information I needed to confirm its authenticity. They included in their fees airport pickup (which is amazing when entering a foreign country) a single or shared room with a comfortable full size bed, and private bathroom (all of which is pretty unique for a school in Rishikesh). Having a place for yourself to relax and recuperate I found is essential to your well-being, as getting sick or feeling absolutely exhausted is a common problem. The food actually served to be quite amazing. Of course, it could get a little tiring after eating it for several weeks, but it was comparably as great as anything you would eat outside of the school. As for the teachers, I can not begin to explain my love for them individually and as a whole. What makes this program so great is how you become part of their family so quickly. This is a relatively new school, but although they may be young, they are well trained, dedicated, and enthusiastic people. Their goal is to make sure that you grow as a person - mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Many other schools seem like factories just pulling out certificates and upping their reviews. Yogkulam was there to individualize the experience to make it fit your needs. The class sizes are small, and there are 2 studios which splits up the classes to be even smaller, which means you get personal, one on one, attention. Not many schools can ever give you this type of structure. These teachers are attentive and passionate, which makes getting to know them an even greater reward. Every single class was full of laughter, random silly questions, cultural immersion, and strength building. Amit and Dee, the leaders and creators of this facility, are renowned for their work, and created the program to make sure you are learning all aspects of yoga correctly and fluidly. Amit is so knowledgable, and he's willing to help with any question, concern, problem or difficulty your facing. He looks at the body as a structure, and taught alignment and adjustment in such a professional perspective that I now see flaws in myself and in others methodically. Dee, on the other hand, pushed me to limits that I was not willing to push myself to. I swear, he was trying to kill me at first, but he proved to me that I was capable of much more, and for the first time, I was able to achieve poses I never thought I could (and also chaturanga with my new muscles :P) Manu, a great friend and even greater educator, made anatomy and physiology so engaging and was an amazing example of how every teacher should structure a classroom environment. Every teacher in this school showed an immense amount of passion and care for what they taught and your relationship with them. Between the laughter, tears, body aches, and adventures, my course flew by me with unforgettable memories. I'm ever so thankful for this program, and I hope to share my yoga practice and make Yogkulam proud. LOVE YOU GUYS

Namastè to every soul looking for a Yoga TTC in Rishikesh!
I just finished my 200hours by Rishikesh Yogkulam- (Family) in March 2019.
When I hear people saying:" oh TTC change my life" I couldn't actually really understand why for everything this month was so Powerfull. Now that I have experienced and practices, I can say that for me, never in my life before I have taken one full month for myself, to go deeply into myself and better know me. That is actually what yoga is and bring you, here in the best way possible:
Young, professional and qualify teacher are waiting to share their knowledge with you!
It seems an advertise, I know, but it's actually what you will find here ( they didn't pay me, I swear!). When I was looking for a school I start asking people and everyone was given me a different advise, so I was becoming crazy and just looking on the website every school seems amasing ( actually marketing reach also this holy place).
I find out a good girl from my country that take so much time for me helping me to compare the different schools and we end up on choosing Rishikesh Yogkulam. She was so kind with me that I just trust on her.
And this was an amazing decision because is not just about how they care to teach you or the perfect schedule they have, for me was almost more how they are as people, how they decide to share with us and take care of us in everything (any food problem, rooms problem, knee problem).
You can see and feel that they just do their best to give you the best experience here in India: not just about yoga but also about Indian traditional culture (bringing you to Aarti, temple, weddings when possible, whatching bollywood movies or just chatting and answering your question during all the meals!).
So is like a bath in the Holy Ganga and in Indian culture and obviously into YOGA:
All is organised in very good ways and the food with Sashi is super balanced and healthy.
So I want to thanks all the teacher of the school because from everyone I have learned so much.
So beautiful lost soul looking for a TTC comes to Rishikesh Yogkulam before this young guys become too famous and increase their price

I have just finished my 200hr with Yogkulum and I can’t thank them enough for everything! I was recommended the school by a previous student and knew I was going to have a good time because she was so excited... well now I’m that student and I’m recommending anyone thinking of doing a course to join Yogkulum. The teachers are so professional and so inspiring, such young guys with so much knowledge and determination to make this school grow. The BEST thing (other than the teachers) is the small groups, you get much more from a yoga course when the group is small and you can ask more personal questions. There were just 4 in the 200hr group which was perfect, also 4 in the 300hr and we really became a family. The teachers are all so unique, they are easy to talk to and there is no ego! I have to say Dee is now my favorite yoga teacher of all time... I felt that he really understood each student - he’s very observant. The way he handles people in adjustments is incredible... trying to do it the same way seemed impossible but I’ll get it one day! 😂 thank you Manu for making anatomy class fun! Thanks Mohit for philosophy which was so interesting and never difficult to understand. Sonu was an amazing Hatha teacher and so adorable. I’ll never forget Dance meditation with Rohit! 😂Amit I loved your classes it’s a shame we didn’t get to have more time with u but thank u so much for being so helpful in making this happen for me. Thank you to all the yogkulum team, for teaching us valuable life lessons and for having fun with us. Dance parties, mountain trekking, birthday treats and much more! One of the most challenging but best months of my life. Forever grateful! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Get Healed From Inner
In the journey of life, we encounter various experiences that shape who we are. While some moments bring joy and fulfillment, others can leave a profound impact on our emotional well-being. Past traumas, stress, grief, and anger, if left unresolved, can create blockages within our bodies, potentially leading to mental and physical illnesses. However, there is hope in the form of Emotional Release Treatment. This powerful therapeutic approach combines the use of Deep Acupressure points with Energized Breathing to facilitate the release of pent-up emotions and promote holistic healing.
Understanding Emotional Release Treatment.
Emotional Release Treatment is a therapeutic process designed to address the emotional and energetic imbalances that reside within us. It acknowledges that unexpressed emotions can manifest as physical and mental ailments, disrupting our overall well-being. This treatment approach recognizes the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and emotions, seeking to restore balance by encouraging the healthy expression and release of stored emotions.
The Role of Deep Acupressure Points.
Deep Acupressure points, also known as acupoints or energy meridians, are specific locations on the body that are believed to carry and regulate the flow of energy, or "qi." In Emotional Release Treatment, skilled practitioners apply gentle pressure to these points, stimulating the body's energy pathways and promoting the release of emotional blockages. By accessing these points, the treatment aims to restore the natural flow of energy, alleviating tension and facilitating emotional release.
The Power of Energized Breathing.
Energized Breathing is a technique that involves breathing deeply and rhythmically to increase oxygen intake and activate the emotional center of the brain, this helps body's relaxation response, reduce stress levels, and facilitate emotional healing. Conscious and intentional breathing patterns are practiced to encourage a deep sense of relaxation and release. As the breath is consciously directed, it helps to calm the mind, release stored tension, and facilitate the processing of emotions.
The Benefits of Emotional Release Treatment.

Activity During The Course
Rishikesh Yogkulam's Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Rishikesh are more than just learning and learning. But the course schedule also includes other activities, including excursions, mindfulness programs, spiritual visits and programs, outdoor yoga sessions, fun-loving activities, adventure thrills, trekking, and so on. We make sure one doesn't find the course curriculum hectic and boring, so we offer a proper schedule with breaks and activities.
Kirtan is an altogether different sort of music. In view of old serenades, it can calm the psyche whenever tuned in to with expectation. Everybody unexpectedly encounters kirtan, and it doesn't need to be a strict encounter. You can consider it a chime-in. A kirtan show isn't your commonplace show. Everybody sits on the floor, in spite of the fact that seats are generally accessible. The entertainers are open, but there are differentiations between entertainers and the crowd. In the 200 hour course, kirtan is also included as part of the curriculum.
Dance is the part of yoga that also improves the lifestyle to some quantity. In yoga, more of a classical form of dance is appreciated. These dances are simple and performed by every people of almost all age groups. The 200 hour course incorporates several dance classes for their students to indulge in. Students learn more of the practical form of the dance form rather than theory; even so, there are theory parts that are taught.
Amongst the many bewitching sights that Rishikesh has to offer, Neer waterfall deserves a notable mention. This waterfall is a hidden treasure amidst the woods of Rishikesh. They are an amalgamation of three beautiful and majestic waterfalls. The waterfall is off a cliff that is nearly 25 feet away from the ground. The place is still free from human intrusion, thereby giving a rich, virgin, and raw experience.
The trek towards the waterfall is another adventurous experience. One can see a wide range of flora and fauna densely flocking around the area. A trek to the Neer waterfall is in itself a wholesome experience when one visits Rishikesh.
The aarti is completed confronting the stream. The lights are lit and surrounded by the pandits (Hindu ministers) in a clockwise way, joined by changing or melodies in recognition of Mother Ganga. The most notable Ganga Aarti in Rishikesh is hung on the waterway bank at Parmarth Niketan ashram. They think that it's significantly more otherworldly. Rather than being performed by pandits, the Ganga Aarti at Parmarth Niketan is coordinated and performed by ashram occupants, especially the youngsters considering the Vedas there. The function initiates with the singing of bhajans (reverential melodies), petitions, and a hawan (a decontaminating and holy custom that happens around a fire, with the contributions made to Agni, the fire god).
White water River rafting in Rishikesh has won a few hearts from all around the planet. Admirers of this experience action incorporate homegrown travelers as well as worldwide explorers from Japan, Korea, and European nations. Today, it is genuine that it has even caught recreation explorers' schedules, which can be arranged into students, families, and corporate voyagers. With the expanding number of globe-trotters taking part in whitewater stream undertakings in Rishikesh, the experience the travel industry in Uttarakhand has set up various seashore camps and woods camps for the accommodation of sightseers outdoors in Rishikesh. That sounds like an ideal occasion in the lower region town of the Garhwal Himalaya, Rishikesh, which is additionally well known for its journeys and yoga focuses.
Watching the sunrise is one of the most divine things one can do when visiting Rishikesh or indulging in yoga. That is why when you enroll in a yoga institution in Rishikesh, they include a day where they take you on a trek almost at midnight. This trek starts at the lowest point of Rishikesh and ends at the Kundapuri Temple. The trek is arranged at such a time slot that when you reach the Kunjapuuri temple, you will have a mesmerizing view of the sunrise from the hilltop—watching this sunrise will enrich your soul and uplift your mind greatly.
Sage Vasishtha, one of the revered Seven Sages and author of Rigveda's Mandala 7, stands out as a figure steeped in Vedic history. He once decided to suicide in River Ganga due to the loss of his beloved youngsters. Still, Goddess Ganga denied his self-destruction, so he spent his life in a cave with his wife near the same location, and eventually, a small ashram was built around that cave. In 1930, Swami Purshottamanand sought a haven of tranquility for those searching for profound reflection in the ashram. So he dedicated himself to preserving and sustaining the natural beauty that sprouted around Vashistha Yoga Ashram - where people from all over flock today to discover their inner power amidst nature's wonders. The ashram is 25 km away from Rishikesh on Badrinath road, Uttrakhand.

Full Syllabus For This Course

With our various courses and programs, you can learn a lot about it in a short period of time. The syllabus of yoga in Rishikesh is maintained in such a way that every topic gets covered theoretically and practically. All the important topics are covered in our well-maintained syllabus and schedule.
Hatha Yoga is an ancient form of yoga with varied benefits. The different holistic techniques of the yoga style help control the mind. Asanas in Hatha style are done at a slow to medium pace and are required to be held for a particular time. It helps you prepare for deep meditation, helps improves your health, and increases happy thoughts.
Hatha in Sanskrit means pressure or force. That's why "hatha yoga" means a yoga posture in which physical force and physical pressure are applied. It can be understood in this way, the yoga in which there is a balance of both body and mind is called hatha yoga. Pranayama, Mantra Chanting, Asanas, and Mudras get covered in Hatha style.
Krishna Pattabhi discovered the modern form of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the 20th century. He even makes it popular with the people of the present time. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga combines various bodily movements with breathing. It is a great way to increase flexibility.
The style is propagated by Pattabhi Jois, who learned it from his teacher, Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. To expand on this, Jois started his own Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in the year 1948. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is an energetic style that works by getting the breath to synchronize with the movements. Every single asana of the series is directly linked with flowing movements or vinyasa. The style used in current teaching is known as the "Mysore Style," as it originally originated in Mysore. It further gives rise to various other styles of Power Yoga.
Pranayama is one such technique that our forefathers devised as a gift to mankind. If we talk about pranayama, then it is the fourth of the eight limbs of yoga. In ancient times, people used to practice it regularly and remain healthy. Pranayama has a special place and importance in Ashtanga Yoga. In Maharishi Patanjali's Ashtanga Yoga, it is written in the fourth pada, "Pranasya Ayam: Iti Pranayama:" This means pranayama is the expansion of prana, or life energy.
Pranayama is a combination of the words "Prana" and "Ayama." Prana means life force, which keeps our body alive and through which our body gets energy. Our body gets energy when we inhale and exhale prana, i.e., air. "Dimension" means to give direction or to change. When we draw the Prana Vayu, we gain control over its direction. We change its dimensions according to our wishes. The speed at which normal breath comes and goes remains constant. But in pranayama, we establish control over the speed of our breathing (stop breathing); that is called pranayama.
This propagates the idea of yoga as a way of thinking that benefits from repetition. The yoga philosophy, or the way of thinking about yoga, helps you achieve harmony and tranquilly in life and brings unending joy, physical and mental stability, and great thinking power. This course will help you understand the philosophy behind yoga.
The founder of yoga philosophy is Maharishi Patanjali. Yoga philosophy is one of the six theistic philosophies (Shad Darshanas). The first book of this philosophy is the Yoga Sutras. Seshwara Sankhya, or Theistic Sankhya, is another name for yoga philosophy because it accepts almost all the beliefs of Sankhya in relation to life and the world. Also, it accepts the existence of God. God is described in yoga philosophy as a special power that is unaffected by tribulation, karma, result, ideal, culture, and so on. Its function is not to provide liberation, but only to remove obstacles from the path of the seeker. The Bhagavad Gita is also called Yoga Shastra, i.e., the manual of yoga.
While performing certain asanas, you might feel stress on your muscles. Don't worry if you feel this way because it is normal. Wear and tear on joints and muscles while getting into the practice of yoga is not big. No matter whether you're a beginner or experienced, you can experience some sudden or sharp pain in a particular pose. This can sometimes lead to injuries. Don't get scared! To avoid the risk of injuries and pain, alignment classes are practiced.
So, exactly what is an alignment class? In an alignment class, you will learn the precise and ideal way to perform any given pose so that you can get maximum benefits from it and minimise the risk of injury. It normalises the use of props and modifications during yoga asanas. When you get to know alignment, then you can make any pose work for you.
Shatkarma, in the perspective of yoga, means cleansing. For the purification of the internal body, the practice done in Hatha Yoga is known as Shatkarma. The origin of the word is from the combination of these two words: "shat" and "karma." In this, Shat means six, and Karma means actions. Thus, Shatkarma means 'six actions." In the Gherand Samhita, Maharishi Gherand describes six shatkarmas as the first part of yoga. They believe that without the practice of shatkarma, no seeker can achieve success on the path of yoga.
Shatkarmas have a special purpose in our lives. It protects us from various types of diseases. Today, the whole world is spending billions of dollars on finding ways to prevent and cure dangerous diseases. But there is no permanent solution to any disease or ailment. One of the primary reasons for this is the failure to address the underlying cause of the disease or illness.
The anatomy and physiology of yoga are related to the medical benefits of this ancient art on the muscles, bones, and entire anatomy of the individual. The extraordinary yoga poses that are focused on the various life structures and restrictions of the body are considered here.
Anatomy is a branch of science dealing with the bodily structure of a living being. You will get a complete understanding of the inner structure and the movements associated with each pose. It revolves around the layers of the body, the mind, and the energies flowing in the body. In simple words, yoga anatomy teaches you everything in relation to body organs, tissues, muscles, and so on. Yoga physiology is the branch of science that explains how organisms work.It makes you understand the basic functioning of the cell and living beings at the molecular level. In simple words, physiology is about learning yoga asanas, breathing techniques, and more.
Meditation is an important part of yoga. It relaxes the entire body by calming the mind. You need to sharpen your skills in meditation. It helps to stay stress-free and acquire those skills to the best of one's capabilities.
You can help yourself eliminate stress from your life by practicing meditation on a regular basis. In the present time, disorders of mental health like anxiety and depression are common. It then disturbs your daily routine. Meditation is not always about closing your eyes and focusing on a single point. It sometimes also includes listening to your breath or the sound of birds clearly while in the posture of dhyana, or meditation, but when you do not experience anything else while in this posture, then you are in the right state of meditation.

Our Expert Gurus
Hatha Yoga & Ashtanga Vinyasa
Born in the lap of the Holy Ganga, at the feet of the Bhootnath Shiva Temple, amidst the forests of the Himalayas, Dhirendra reveals himself as a nature lover and spiritual seeker. Having started his schooling at the tender age of 5, from one of the oldest, most iconic and traditional schools of Rishikesh, Dhirendra believes he was drawn to Yoga by a mystical force as he practiced asanas during the physical education lessons in school. He began to live the yogic way of life from that early age and embraced spirituality as his routines began with worshipping Lord Shiva and the Holy Ganga and continued with practising asanas, eating satvik food and attending music lessons. It was under the able guidance of his Guru Narender Gusain that he was able to leave all his vices and practice Yoga religiously. His dedication was such that there were times that he would practice till his body was sore, and it was around this time that he realized that the external appreciation and praise were pointless and the true meaning of Yoga was the alignment of the body, mind and soul, being able to appreciate himself from within. The next part of his training came under Guru Nalin Sharma, under whom he learned Yogic Philosophy and spiritual growth and finally under Guru Roshan Singh, Dhirendra underwent lessons on personal growth. When his three Gurus thought he was ready, Dhirendra started the Yoga school with one goal - helping other seekers on their yogic journey to explore their full potential.

Rishikesh Yogakulam's Reviews
200 Hour YTTC
Yogkulam means family. They have been my family during this month of September. I have to say that this school is run from the heart, with highly qualified teachers, where I have learned from their experience and wisdom. With love and affection they have been aware of all our concerns and have taken great care of us. They are serious and professional, wanting to transmit yoga in the best way. And the views from the school are amazing. Al the best 😘
200 Hour YTTC
Yogkulam truly is a yoga family. Very quickly we became like a family, sharing thoughts, ideas, dreams and cultural exchange. It was such a humbling experience, the teachers were great, overall the course syllabus is very complete. I learned so much about the lifelong journey that yoga represents. It was challenging everyday but there Is nothing that I regret coming to yogkulam. The food everyday was so delicious and nutritious, Sunil really took care of us. It was such a fresh and fun training because the teachers are young and very knowledgeable. Special thanks to Amitji and Jituji, our asana and theory teachers, and my dear friends!
200 Hour Online YTTC
I recently completed my 200 hour online teacher training with Rishikesh yogkulam and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to undertake a teacher training course. Don't look any further! The teachers are incredibly knowledgeable, and are always available to answer any question. I loved the holistic approach to the curriculum with Hatha Asana, Ayurveda, Philosophy, Pranayama, and Meditation training. This holistic approach to teacher training helped me develop a wider perspective and learn how each is interconnected. Thank you Rishikesh yogkulam :)
200 Hour YTTC
What a phenomenal month-long journey to the self with these guys! Rishikesh Yogkulam went above and beyond my expectations for a TTC. All of the teachers are very relatable and extremely passionate and knowledgeable about their craft. Going into the experience, I wanted to be able to take away as much information as I could to pass along to my future yoga students. This program really prepares you with all the tools you need and gives you the confidence you need to be an amazing yoga teacher. Thank you for sharing your culture and love of yoga with me. Rishikesh Yogkulam is an unforgettable experience. Thank you.
200 Hour YTTC
Wow!!! Having completed many courses in my life I left Yogkulam feeling inspired and wanting to learn more. The passion of ancient yogic knowledge oozes from the teachers who with love, respect and dignity hold true to what they believe and what they have been taught. They looked after my inflexible body and on my journey have knowingly or unknowingly taught me to respect and expand on the limitations which I have put on myself throughout my life. The 200Hr TTC is well thought out with great teachings on all levels of the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual aspects of life. Be inspired, feel whole and let go. We create our own walls so when you are ready free yourself. There’s only one place I can recommend in Rishikesh to study yoga and that is Yogkulam. Join the family.
500 Hour YTTC
If you do care more for the content than the famous name, then go for this school. Led by experienced teachers Dee and Amit in a professional way, yet very friendly atmosphere. I felt at home from the very first moment. We were a small group and thanks to it received all the attention from our teachers and got answers to all our questions. Many new inputs and inspiration for yoga practice. Premises are beautiful and the food is delicious prepared by the smiling chef :). Thank you for the unforgettable and beautiful experience!
200 Hour YTTC
I will highly recommend this school, with an extremely professional team of teachers. Because it's a small structure you will benefit from the best attention which is a really important point to choose a school and to progress I think. I took my training course with Amit and I can affirm he is a very good teacher, extremely knowledgeable, and overachiever. Him and all the team will take you high in your practice, your knowledge and will give you the confidence to teach your turn. Rishikesh yogkulam is a good choice!
300 Hour YTTC
I followed my previous teacher Dee for my 300 hour yoga teacher training course to his new school which he runs with Amit, both exceptional teachers. My knowledge of asana and alignment has improved especially but all the classes were brilliant. The course is intense but well worth it. The food is delicious and cooked with love every single day. The rooms are light, bright, clean and spacious. The teachers took us on excursions around rishikesh on our day off, invited us to an Indian wedding and threw a lovely birthday celebration for one of the girls on the course. My group was small and we had a very special bond with each other by the end. Can’t thank the teachers enough. I highly recommend this school.
500 Hour YTTC
I did a lot of research for the perfect school and I am so glad I found it! The teachers are amazing, full of knowledge, willing to help you grow, always an ear for your questions, assistance if you have any problem or health issues, respect full and always in a good mood to share wonderful experiences and memories with you. I can't say enough thank you for all your kindness and knowledge I got from all the teachers of Rishikesh Yogkulam. I definitely will be back to keep studying with all of them. And a big hug to my colleagues there was one of a kind and so happy to have shared all this experience with them too. Definitely this school is the best you can find in Rishikesh. Dhanyawad

Dhi and Amit gurujis will teach you to be both flexible and strong at the same time. I am so grateful I was able to learn from the best. They have the knowledge and passion to train you to be a better yogi and improve your practice. I have so much respect for both, and am so excited to see that they have teamed up to start a school that will optimally train your body, mind and spirit to be “healthy and happy”. I would highly recommend it to any yogi to learn from Dhi and Amit. You will gain lifelong friends, not just teachers.
