Yogacharya Dhirendra Bisht

Born in the lap of Mother Ganga and grown up in the shadows of Bhoothnath Shiva Temple admist the forests of Himalayas, Dhirendra identifies himself as a nature lover. Dhirendra started his schooling at the age of 5 at Parmarth Niketen, which is an iconic and the oldest traditional schools of Rishikesh. He believes that he was being drawn to yoga by some mystical force when he started performing yoga asanas as a part of physical education in school. At a very tender age, he was already living a life of a little yogi because his routine would include practicing yoga, eating yogic food for lunch, and attending in between music sessions as a part of curriculum. Shortly after, he had to switch his school but that didn’t hinder his yogic practices. Being a believer, he never missed to worship Lord Shiva and Maa Ganga because as per Hinduism, it is considered to be the first step towards spirituality. There came a time when Dhirendra got engrossed into the technical world and felt his spiritual beliefs weakening until he met his Guru Narender Gusain. It was under his guidance that Dhirendra religiously practiced Yoga. To earn some words of appreciation, he would practice till an extent where his body would grow sore and one fine day he realized that the praise he was seeking from outside meant nothing until he learnt to appreciate himself from within. This was an enlightening moment for him where he realized that Yoga made him happy and that he was willing to spread this knowledge even further. So after taking his lessons of Yoga asanas from Guru Narender, Dhirendra moved under the guidance of Guru Nalin Sharma where he learnt about yogic philosophy and spiritual growth. Finally under the canopy of Guru Roshan Singh, Dhirendra underwent lessons on personal enhancements. He regards the three Gurus of his life as Bhrama, Vishnu and Mahesh who are considered the holy trinity in Hinduism. When his gurus thought he was ready to start his own school independently, Dhirendra founded Rishikesh Yogakulam and since then he has been teaching a large no of students from around the globe, helping them on their journey to become learnt and compassionate humans through the holistic study of yoga science.
