As a Yoga School, we are influenced by so many Great Sages from our Tradition, modern practitioners as well as thinkers and most of them reflect in our expressions of teaching. Over the years in the natural evolution of the School, we have observed Yoga as a practice of disciplining body and mind.
In the process to achieve discipline, the most important thing for a practitioner is to understand the very nature of body and mind, especially mind. What is Mind? How it works? Why do we need to discipline it? What are the ways to discipline it? Is it ever going to be disciplined? So many similar questions have bothered seekers of different time and eras. Answers to all of these questions are hidden in the treasures of Yog Sutra complied by Mahrishi Patanjanli. Philosophical background of Rishikesh Yogpeeth and the practices taught in these courses are very much in line with the concept.
At Rishikesh Yogpeeth, our intention is to apply the science of yoga by adapting the traditional knowledge of Indian Masters to suit our times, while taking care to preserve the essence of their teachings. Yoga is about discovering your true nature through your own personal experience. We want to provide a transforming experience and focus on the subtler aspects of Yoga, not only covering the asanas, but going beyond to enhance your understanding of yoga.
Our Yoga does not end at the yoga hall, it leads to personal revelations, changes and then transformation. We believe our teacher training programs will help you initiate this chain of self-transformation. Those who are already initiated will be able to hone their practice of yoga and sharpen their perceptions about yogic philosophy and meditation.
In recent years we have seen how Yoga has made its mark in the mainstream living, so many people are interested in it for the sake of health and wellbeing. That has created a heavy demand for Yoga Teachers worldwide. The quest ends up with Yoga Teacher Training Courses.

Swami Vishnudevananda disciple of Swami Sivananda was the very first Yoga Master, in late 60s who went on feeling the need of Yoga Teacher Training Courses, to prepare Yoga Teachers. Even at that time he was quite aware that in near future societies will be having unhealthy hectic lifestyles and a greater need for Yoga. So considering all of this he went on developing a curriculum of Yoga Teacher Training course and in 1969, taught the very first Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training in Canada. To a certain extent it was the continuation of the Yoga Training program offered by Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy of Sivananda Ashram in Rishikesh, India. Since then the Course has trained more than 50,000 certified Yoga Teachers to serve humanity as a whole.
Yoga was the Traditional education system of ancient India, where students and teachers live together in an ashram called Gurukula. Day to day life in Gurukula under the guidance of an experienced master was the perfect combination for students to get a transformative learning atmosphere to grow physically, mentally and spiritually. Over the period of time with many invasions to India, we lost it. Fortune turns around and once again Yoga is finding its way to the modern education system of India. There are many Universities, Colleges, Institutes and Schools not only offering different Yoga Courses but involved in research and development of Yogic science. These Courses include a one month certificate course to the Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Doctorate Degrees in Yoga.
