Yoga is a universal science that places no bias among its followers. The science can be adopted by anyone, irrespective of age, creed, religion, body type, disorders, etc.
With the divine purpose of making yoga accessible to all its enthusiasts and followers despite the monetary gaps, Rishikesh Yogis Yogshala has launched the Yoga Teacher Training Scholarship Program in India.
Resonating with the karmic objective to reach out the magnificent science of yoga and spirituality to various corners of the globe and, to all those who are truly passionate for attaining the art form, Rishikesh Yogis offers accredited Yoga Teacher Training Program in India for free.
The Yogshala strongly believes in the humanitarian values that Yoga entails. Those who aspire to dedicate their life to yoga and hold innate desire to spread the divine art form to various parts of the globe as acclaimed yoga teachers can greatly benefit from this wonderful Yoga Scholarship program – truly one of its very rare in India.
What’s even greater is that the school does not distinguish between its non-scholarship and scholarship students. And, so every non-scholarship student undergoes the same classes and curriculum as a regular student.
The subjects undertaken during the course are same as the subjects undertaken by a non-scholarship student undergoing a Yoga Teacher Training Program. Some of the key subjects taught are discussed below:
Study of traditional teachings from Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Gheranda Samhita,Patanjali Yoga Sutra and Yoga Upanishads that explain the learning and practices Kundalini Yoga.
Also known as the ‘laya’ yoga, Kundalini form of Yoga is one of the most mystical and traditional forms in yogic science.The style is greatly influenced by the Tantric School and Shaktism. Kundalini, the core of all creative energy that lies dormant within a human body can only be awakened through the intense practice of Kundalini Yoga.
Vinyasa Yoga represents a flow, a motion that occurs with each breath yogi inhales and exhales.
This transition from one yoga pose to another in a pre-designed series represents the dynamism of Vinyasa Yoga. The style has given birth to several contemporary forms of yoga and is one of the most elemental styles adopted by yoga practitioners and teachers.
The ancient classical style of yoga represents union of the divine – the Sun ‘Ha’ and the Moon ‘Tha’. The style journeys through various yoga asanas and breathing exercises that unite the solar and lunar energy in a human body crucial for its holistic well-being.
This union signifies balance, harmony and rhythm of the mind, body and soul.
Training the mind towards mindfulness involves in-depth practice and learning of the art of Meditation.
There are several Meditation techniques and styles studied under this magnanimous subject. The aim is to dissipate the mind, body and soul of any negative energy and, progress it towards optimism and holistic living where the body establishes a deep connection with the mind and soul. This is the enroute to mental and spiritual salvation.
Under Yogic Philosophy, you shall get introduced to the yogic lifestyle, its discipline and its principles – the Yamas and, the Niyamas.
Initially composed in the early Sanskrit Vedas, Mantras became crucial elements in almost every religion like Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, etc.

Being a successful yoga practitioner and a skilled yoga teacher are two different objectives.

Beautiful souls teaching with such patience and in depth knowledge. I was fortunate enough to meet these amazing humans in India last year. Uttam helped find me a yoga school to do my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training at and then I had the pleasure of learning from him, Abhi & Sushant at the 10 day Spiritual retreat in Rishikesh. I speak so highly of them all as they deserve all the recognition in the world. I had some really big break throughs and believe this was the cherry on top of an amazing trip. If you are looking for kind & caring souls to take you on a journey of growth these gentlemen are who you need to spend time with. 🙌 I will forever cherish our time together and cannot wait to come back in the near future.
My opportunity to meet Sushant, Abhi and Uttam has opened my eyes to the scope to which the term Yoga really means. These humble and gracious men taught me about the ancient philosophies, meditation techniques , pranayama, asanas, chanting and in general we're true examples of how to live a Yogic life. Beyond the organised classes I learnt many life lessons, had many many laughs and enjoyed the stories I was told. So many of the things I have learnt from these men have helped me move forward in my life and I will always be grateful. Thank you Rishikesh Yogis. See you when I return
Thank you Uttam for this beautiful experience and helping and allowing me to further my personal yoga pratice,for teaching me different breathing techniques and welcoming me so warmly into your space. I feel so happy, energized and healthy since I left India and look forward to my next visit.
I had the most wonderful opportunity recently to spend time with Yogis Uttam, Abhi and Sushant of Rishikesh Yogis during a 10 day spiritual retreat in Rishikesh in April 2017. These beautiful souls exude such in-depth knowledge, patience, understanding and a passion for sharing and imparting what they know for the benefit of others. They live and embody the essence of true yoga and it clearly radiates from their very being. I was in awe of their teachings and by simply spending time with them, and being in their presence, I felt deep inspiration within myself to continue to grow and expand on my own personal and spiritual journey keeping their words of wisdom very close to my heart.
I have met and worked with many yoga and spiritual teachers but I could not recommend these dear souls highly enough. I look forward to the day that I return to Rishikesh to reunite with my friends again. Feeling blessed. In love and light.
I had the pleasure of being taught by Uttam, Abhi and Sushant at a retreat I attended in Rishikesh. I had absolutely no experience with yoga or meditation before the retreat and these 3 amazing men managed to teach me so much in that time that my life will be changed forever. Like many westerners I was under the belief that yoga consisted of doing poses for an hour or so a day and meditation is sitting quietly trying to stop all your thoughts. I was so wrong! I was introduced to so many aspects of yoga and meditation I didn't know existed, the intriguing indepth history, how yoga and meditation blend perfectly and how to incorporate it a into every part of my life to get endless benefits and break throughs in my personal life. The retreat had all levels of experience in it, but the teaching is so well done that I never felt like I was left behind. I cannot recommend these teachers high enough as their always happy, loving personalities match their 5 star knowledge and teaching.
I was blessed with the opportunity of learning yoga and meditation with Abhi, Uttam and Sushant in Rishikesh, India in April 2017 during a 10-day spiritual retreat. These three spiritual leaders are the epitome of what a Yogi should be; they have the warmth, compassion, humbleness, generosity, patience, understanding, enlightenment, embodiment and lived experience that is truly inspirational! They live and breathe (literally) their words of yoga philosophy by incorporating it into their daily practice with such ease. Just being in their presence is a tranquil pleasure as they bring such peace and joy in every interaction. Participating in their classes is a soul enriching experience, not only by being immersed in their depth of knowledge, powerful storytelling and incredible use of metaphors; but also as a witness to see these beautiful souls live their life’s calling in such an authentic and effortless way. They truly have a magical gift that they share without hesitation to everyone they come across. I can’t wait to see Abhi, Uttam and Sushant and learn from them again!
It has taken some time to share my feelings & thoughts of what we experienced last month with these amazing teachers & healers, a connection I felt so deeply, the whole experience & how to put it in to words and express my gratitude has been a quandary.
Uttam, Abhi & Sushant, the powerful impact you had on me and everyone in our group was amazing. However, I can only speak for myself and say what an incredible experience I had, fulfilled with your teachings, knowledge, wisdom, compassion and amazing insight to the world of yoga, meditation & spirituality. Your generosity of time, patience, wisdom, experience & knowledge shared is beyond what I imagined this retreat would bring.
Adding to my years of practice, yet what you taught was unlike anything else I had experienced.
Loving India as I do, having traveled here twice a year for many years, this was my first time to Rishikesh & what an amazing, special, unique, beautiful place this is. Quite unlike anywhere I have ever experienced on my travels in the world. It truly speaks to your soul & has left a mark on me and within my thoughts & heart everyday.
I continue my yoga practice back home, but truly miss your teachings, voice, chants, music & essence of this experience you shared with us.
Also how it can transform & live within us on a daily basis when we practice these teachings & accept our growth, intuition, strengths, vulnerabilities, weaknesses, love & the power to let it be...
I speak with gratitude & love for the experience of having the daily teachings with you guys & cannot wait to return to Rishikesh...
To train yoga with Rishikesh Yogis is utterly fantastic. It's great experience I ever had. I had 10 days yoga retreat which i learnt how to be detached and be balanced. Not only the asanas practice, yoga nidra and mantra but also warm welcome from everyone at Ashram Samanraya. I'm really grateful to be there, to join yoga retreat class. Particularly, guru Uttam, thank you to conduct the best class. Namaste
My time at RYY surpassed all expectations. It's like Harvard or UCL for Yoga. The theoretical knowledge and practical learning ratio is as balanced and traditional as the teachers. With over 30 academic years of philosophical study at some of the worlds most renowned schools of yogic thought shared between the directors / teachers, you will be awakened to what the true essence of yoga really, noth theoretically and practically. You will also be equipped enough to deliver all you've learned back home with CONFIDENCE. This is the beginning of my journey with RYY, and the ancient traditions of yoga. Here's to the future.
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!!
Great yoga school that will for sure leave you with a once in a lifetime experience. Uttam is a great teacher that will guide you very proffessionaly through the training. He’s also one of the kindest and warmest people I’ve ever met. It’s an intense training but it’s all worth it! Thank you for a fantastic experience!
