Hatha Yoga means to balance the two powerful energies of the body, i.e. Lunar Energy (denotes by the left channel or Ida Nadi) and Solar Energy (denotes by the right channel or Pingala Nadi). Hatha yoga is a set of various yoga poses and breathing techniques which are practiced at a slow pace. Hatha literally means "force" and so it is also known as "Force Yoga" or you can also say that with the Hatha style, yoga is done by force. Hatha Yoga is done originally focus on bodily postures and controlling the breath. The practice includes bodily movements, mindful energy, and breathing patterns. A single class usually lasts for 45-90 minutes of breathing, yoga asanas, mudras or hand gestures, and meditation.

The style of Hatha Yoga originated from Raja Yoga (without Yamas and Niyamas). In simpler terms, you can describe it as all about yoga poses and pranayama. Hatha Yoga is also known as Shatanga Yoga or six-limb yoga, namely, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi.

What is Vinyasa Yoga?

Vinyasa is also known as flow yoga or power yoga. It includes moving from one posture to another by maintaining the proper synchronization of the breath. Vinyasa is completely opposite to Bikram Yoga or Ashtanga yoga and the uniqueness of the Vinyasa style is that no two classes are ever the same in this. The word, "Vinyasa" is the combination of two words, "Vi" meaning "Special", and "Nyasa" meaning "Establishment".

Vinyasa style of yoga is a boon to your health. It not only helps you in keeping active but also helps in reducing anxiety and stress.

What is Ashtanga Yoga?

Ashtanga Yoga is an eight-limbed yoga which takes you to the finest and last stage of Samadhi. The word, "Ashtanga" is actually the combination of two words "Ashta" means "Eight" and "Anga" means "Limb". The description of Ashtanga Yoga was found mentioned in the Patanjali Yoga Sutras. It was compiled by Sage Patanjali in 200 CE. There are 196 sutras in the text which comprise the theory of practice of yoga. There are four padas or sections in yoga sutras. The second pada describes eight limbs namely, Yama (moral codes), Niyama (self-discipline), Asana (posture), Pranayama (breath control), Pratyahara (sense withdrawal), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation), and Samadhi (oneness with the self).

We introduce various types of meditation techniques like Concentrative Meditation, Mindfulness Meditation, Body-scan meditation, Breathing meditation, Loving-kindness meditation, Mantra meditation, and Movement meditation which helps you practicing them correctly. The evening time is best for meditation as during that time, the atmosphere is pure and exotic.

What is Pranayama?

Pranayama is one of the eight limbs of yoga which helps in controlling the prana (life force or energy) of an individual. It involves various practices and techniques, which are done with the aim to withdraw yourself from the outside world. Pranayama works on the two nadis of the body, namely ida nadi and pingala nadi. When we inhale, the prana travels upward with the left nadi, i.e. Ida Nadi. With these movements, the breath is purified in the lungs and the mind becomes detached from the outside world for a moment. After this, the process is carried forward by exhalation. In this, the energy travels in the downward direction through the right energy channel, known as Pingala Nadi. This process of going energy downward is called Apana.

The process of inhalation and exhalation also signifies that when we inhale, we get the feeling of excitement and happiness, and when we exhale, we eliminate the feeling of defeat and depression.

A morning 1-hour session is given to Pranayama practice in the 500 Hours Yoga Course in Rishikesh.

500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh

I had the most memorable month at Rishikesh Yogkulam. The teachers were absolutely excellent - extremely thorough, knowledgeable and very experienced. I can't recommend this school enough.

Amit was one of the teachers from my 200h TTC and he made a massive impression on me. In fact so much that I made sure to follow his journey and enrol for my 300h YTT at his school. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your knowledge, motivating us and teaching us how to not only be teachers, but also giving us a better understanding of the yogic way of life. Often wanting to focus on the asana side of yoga, we forget the importance of the philosophy, the anatomy, the meditation and the breathing that plays such an integral part of yoga. Whether I'm going to teach after this or not, I don't know. But one thing I know for sure and that is that I am richer in so many ways. I will carry this experience with me for the rest of my life.

Amit and my fellow students, I truly hope our paths will cross again. My heart feels full and warm as I think back to us dancing after our graduation. Missing you tons!

Words can not express how amazing the quality of Yogkulam is! From the very beginning I felt like I was at home. The instructors are so awesome, especially Manu and Amit. Both of them have a true passion for teaching and it really shows up when they lead class. The other instructors do a really good job as well! I learned so much in my 300 hr, and really improved my personal yoga practice. You will be pushed both mentally and physically, but it will make you super grateful in the end!

The facilities are super nice! Having your own "room" even though it's shared is an added bonus. From the balconies, beware of the monkeys, to the bathroom, and the large, comfy beds everything is what you need to feel at home. The yoga halls are large and spacious with nice views of the mountains.

The Sunday excursions were the best! It was so much fun going out with everyone and seeing things outside of the hustle and bustle of the small city area. Connecting closer with classmates and teachers on the excursions makes the whole experience so special.

The food! The food is so, so good! The chef is an amazing cook. Every dish tastes so good, and he will cater to any allergies one may have.

Overall, I loved, loved my time at Yogkulam! I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for honest, trustworthy, hardworking teachers who really know and understand the yogic lifestyle, and how to apply it. You will not be disappointed in your choice! Love and light!

The course is for people seeking to earn fame in the yoga teaching field and people who get inspired by yoga asanas. Yogis seek self-confidence and knowledge, while another aim to become successful professionals in yoga training.

I first studied TTC from Amit Ji and Dheeru Ji 2 years ago in Rishikesh. They taught me that yoga isn’t all about asanas. If practiced correctly, yoga should create space within our minds and bodies. I decided to return to them this year because I knew I’d receive top level training. And I was right.

Rishikesh Yogkulam trained me really hard to be a good teacher. They remembered where I left and gave me tailored advice to  go forward.

I’m studying for a Masters degree while having a full time job. Practicing yoga aside was never easy. My shoulders are tight, my hips are not open, my arms are short... I have 100 reasons not to carry on. But I’m so glad I met Amit Ji. He pointed out all those “obstacles”, then he offered me an option to create the space I need. “You have better forward-bending than 2 years ago, but you can do even better.” It was the first thing he said to me after my first class this time.

I also walked away from Dheru’s Ashtanga class because of my own weakness 2 years ago. Two years later today, he taught me how to enjoy tough training with a smile. I didn’t run away this time. I now call him Master Dheru, a great teacher who put himself in students’ shoes and inspired me to be a good teacher myself.

Both Amit & Dheru kept presenting new perspectives to me. They challenged me a lot. But they also respect me. I can’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for me.

I’m really grateful to the school because they allowed me to be me while pushing me forward. They equipped me with the tools I need to live the life I want. I’m looking forward to training with them again. Thank you!

Get Healed From Inner

Get Healthy Mind With Emotional Release Treatment

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.

  • Overcoming past traumas: Emotional Release Treatment provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals to process and release traumatic experiences that may have been stored within the body. By releasing these emotional imprints, individuals can experience a sense of liberation, healing, and personal growth.
  • Managing stress: Chronic stress can have detrimental effects on both our mental and physical health. Emotional Release Treatment offers a means of effectively managing stress by promoting relaxation, reducing anxiety, and fostering emotional resilience.
  • Grief and loss support: Grief can be an overwhelming emotion that affects us deeply. Emotional Release Treatment can provide a space to express and process grief, allowing individuals to move through the stages of mourning and find solace and healing.
  • Resolving anger and frustration: Unresolved anger and frustration can contribute to a range of health issues. Emotional Release Treatment assists in expressing and releasing these pent-up emotions in a healthy and productive manner, reducing the risk of prolonged physical and mental distress.
  • Enhancing overall well-being: By restoring the natural flow of energy and facilitating emotional release, Emotional Release Treatment promotes a sense of inner harmony and balance. This can lead to improved mental clarity, increased self-awareness, and an overall enhanced quality of life.

The word pranayama is the combination of two different Sanskrit words, prana (meaning life force) and yama (meaning control). One of the four Vedas of Hindu Mythology, Atharvaveda describes pranayam as the fundamental basis of life or breathing controlling energy. Other texts also describe pranayama as the control of the vital energy of the body.

Describing in simpler terms, Pranayama is a set of various practices which is done to control prana in the human body by different means, such as breathing techniques, meditative visualizations, and physical locks. There are many ancient texts describing Pranayama in different styles but with the same meaning, such as,

  • Brihadaranyaka Upanishad describes pranayama as the breathing control which is certainly the best for our health.
  • The Bhagavad Gita explains pranayama as the constant process of inhaling, exhaling, and breath retention for a certain period.
  • The Maitrayaniya Upanishad states that the practice of pranayama drew prana into the Sushumna Nadi or the central channel of energy.
  • Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras describe pranayama as a practice of inhaling, exhaling and retention which illuminates the soul of an individual.
  • The Hatha Yoga Pradipika defines alternate nostril-breathing patterns, known as pranayama.

Yoga Philosophy

This propagates the idea of yoga as a way of thinking that benefits from rehearses. The yoga philosophy or the way of thinking about yoga helps you achieve harmony and tranquillity in life and brings unending joy, physical and mental stability, and great thinking power. This course helps you to understand the reasonings for yoga.

Maharishi Patanjali is the founder of Yoga philosophy. Yoga philosophy is one of the six theistic philosophies (Shad Darshanas). The first book of this philosophy is the Yoga Sutras. Yoga philosophy is also known as Seshvara Sankhya or Theistic Sankhya. Because it accepts almost all the beliefs of Sankhya in relation to life and the world. Also, it accepts the existence of God. In yoga philosophy, God is described as a special power who remains unaffected by tribulation, karma, result, ideal, culture, etc. 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.

Shatkarma is mentioned in the "Hatha Yoga Pradipika" as the cleansing technique in yoga. It is the compound of two different terms, "Shat" which means "Six" and "Karma" which means "Action". Thus, Shatkarma is the six purification techniques done to cleanse the internal organs of the body. It keeps the body healthy, strong, and clean. It removes toxins that are blocking the flow of prana in the human body.

Shatkarma makes the practice of pranayama and meditation easier for the practitioner as it removes discomfort and fatigue from the body. It should be noted that Shatkarma is practiced under an experienced guru. The six types of Shatkarma techniques are, Neti (nasal cleansing process), Dhauti (cleansing process for the alimentary canal), Nauli (cleansing practice for the abdomen), Basti (cleansing process for the large intestine), Kapalabhati (breathing technique to cleans head and nostrils), and Trataka (a cleansing technique for the eyes).

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.

Moved by an inner call, she decided to go to India and enroll in a yoga course and that's when her life had a turn point. After short, she healed completely from depression, and inspired by the incredible change yoga brought into her life she decided to continue to deepen her studies by taking teacher training courses, retreats and workshop specializing herself in Yin Yoga, meditation techniques (especially Buddhist, Osho, yoga nidra), Pranayama, and Reiki. For her Yin Yoga practice she takes inspiration from Sarah Powers, with whom she did a course in London; and Paul Grilley. Her classes are focused to release the blockages from the body, both mental and physical. In her cueing, you can find many anatomical as psychological and spiritual aspects. She always puts great emphasis on breathing techniques during the class and meditation, both before and after the practice.

Her favourite motto is "Change is hardest at the beginning, messiest in the middle and best at the end."

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!

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 :)

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.

Reena testimonial


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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

Experiencing the subtler realities of Yoga

A once in a lifetime experience, very well crafted and packaged with a lot of love and affection. The team is motivated towards helping everyone achieve the collective goal. 360 degree perspective on the entire circle of Indian philosophy which gives a deeper understanding of what you are doing and why you are doing.Even after the course ends you may leave physically but mentally you are still in Yogkulam."You can check out anytime you like but you may never leave"Highly recommended school.

Guiding principles and the sacred thread of discipline

Hello and welcome to the Yoga Teacher Training! We're excited to embark on this new journey together, where we'll nurture your body, mind, and soul. Let's make this experience truly enjoyable to reap the maximum benefits.

General Information:

  • To enhance your yoga practice, we kindly request that you refrain from consuming drugs, smoking, and drinking alcohol during the training.
  • Sundays are your day to relax and rejuvenate! We won't have any lessons scheduled, and there won’t be any meals on Sunday so you can enjoy and explore the cafes around. Additionally, all our excursions will be organized on Sundays, and we'll share the plans with you one day in advance.
  • If you need laundry service, don't worry; we've got you covered! You can get your laundry done at a reasonable price of 20 INR per piece. Simply reach out to our reception for more details, and please remember to pay in cash when you collect your fresh laundry.
  • For your comfort and convenience, our school provides room cleaning service every week. We'll keep you informed about the schedule, so you can always have a tidy space to relax in.
  • To stay hydrated, we have filtered water available in the kitchen area, and there's a water dispenser offering hot, cold, and normal water.
  • During the course, we may capture pictures and videos of our school and students. Occasionally, our school photographer might be present during classes. If you prefer not to have your photos taken, please let the admin in charge know during the orientation program.
  • Let's be mindful of our energy consumption! Remember to turn off all electrical appliances, such as fans, lights, heaters, and geysers, when they are not in use.
  • Your well-being is essential to us. In case of any medical emergency, you can contact Amit Ji, Dheru Ji, Jittu Ji, Pankaj Ji, or Ella Ji at any time. Please note that medical expenses are not covered by the school.
  • We want you to have a focused and immersive experience, so we kindly ask that no friends, relatives, or outsiders stay with the participants, unless you've informed us beforehand and received permission.
  • If you won't be eating at the school, please let us know in advance (at least 3 hours before) to avoid food wastage. In case you tell us at last moment or do not inform us, INR 100 would be deducted per meal.
  • As you immerse yourself in the Indian experience, our food options align with the local cuisine. We offer a variety of nutritious meals, including legumes as a protein source for vegetarian diets (eggs are not considered veg in India), chapati and rice as carbohydrates, cooked and raw vegetables, and fruits during breakfast. If you prefer specific products, you can explore the organic store nearby. Your profound understanding and the warmth you bring infuse a unique essence into our shared journey. Together, let's nurture Kritajna (gratitude) for the nourishing meals that is provided to us.
  • While using cups or glasses, please be considerate and don't leave them on the stairs or roof. It's essential to take care of your personal belongings. Keep them in a safe place and lock your room whenever you're outside. Also, don't forget to close your windows, as we wouldn't want any monkeys dropping in unexpectedly.

  • During classes, let's stay away from mobile phones for external communication or social media usage. We want to create a positive and focused environment for everyone.
  • Please avoid lying down or sitting on your books/manuals during classes, as it's considered disrespectful to the teachers and the Indian culture.
  • To receive your certificate, make sure to submit your assignments by the 21st, and your exam sessions will be held between the 19th and 23rd.
  • We're all one big family here, so let's treat each other with respect and kindness. This includes our staff, teachers, and fellow trainees.
  • Maintaining a yogic atmosphere is crucial. Let's steer clear of any verbal or physical harm towards others.
