Many eminent yogis of contemporary period like Swami Vivekananda, Swami Shivananda, Swami Chidananda, Swami Satyananda, Swami Ram, and Swami Mahesh Yogi, etc. had also chosen this land for their self evolution and Sadhana. Rishikesh, known as “the World Capital of Yoga” attracts thousands of yoga aspirants. Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Rishikesh, India are both affordable and enlightening.

On completion of our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course (Yoga TTC), you will be a globally recognized Yoga Teacher. At Rishikesh Yogis, we aim to teach yoga in its purest and traditional form. Our 200 Hour Yoga TTC in Rishikesh concentrates deeply on the topics of Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Classical Yoga Philosophy of Patanjali. These three systems constitute the fundamental principles of psycho-energetic therapeutic systems of Yoga. Besides our discussions on these areas of yogic discipline, there are sessions on practical teaching methodology which help yoga practitioners and yoga aspirants learn nuances of class teaching. In Yoga TTC, Teaching Methodology is one of the fundamental topics of study which, unfortunately, is not taught in-depth in most of the other yoga centers around the world.

What Our Student Say

Wow where do I begin. This was one of the most authentic and life enhancing experiences I have ever had. In a very short month I learned more than I could ever imagine, and I owe it all the the incredible teachers. They truly are the absolute best in their field. I gained so much knowledge just from being in the teachers’ presence and by observing their lifestyles it is very clear that they truly practice what they preach. They are extremely dedicated to their students and put a lot of time and consideration into each and every lesson and practice. I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to study with such incredible teachers in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

I recently did the 200h TTC at this amazing school and I could not be happier with the experience! Uttam is such a nice person and he tries really hard to make sure his students are happy. The teachers and staff are all great and work their hardest to give you the best possible stay. The teachers are experienced and really live the way they teach, which makes it so much more authentic. Sometimes Rishikesh can feel like a yoga factory, but these guys really made me feel that they were more concerned about my learning than the money I payed. They focus on the true core of yoga as a spiritual practice, rather than just the physical aspect of it, and try their best to give you the whole picture in just a short month (prepare yourself for some intense days!). Fortunately the classes are also filled with a lot of laughter. I felt that the curriculum was well-planned and I learned so much in this short time, probably the most well spent money in my life! The stay is great in the beautiful ashram Ved Niketan, with simple nice rooms and great yogic food served thrice daily. The energy is so calm and peaceful which really helps to deepen the whole experience. I hope to be able to return one day and keep learning from all of you amazing people who helped me set off on this new journey of mine. Thank you and see you soon!
