Practise of Yoga without understanding the philosophy of Yoga is like a body without a soul. Such a practice does not go too far. It’s the study of yoga philosophy makes your yoga journey truly transformative.

Pranayama literally means the to extend the vital force of Life. Pranayama is a practise where you can break the pattern of your unconscious breathing and attain a state of focused concentration and greater connection with inner self. Regular practise of pranayama helps in decreasing the mental noise i.e. the distraction and negative thoughts that prevents you from connecting with your inner light.
The course will take you through different forms of pranayama that would help in changing your shallow breathing patterns into more deep long breaths making breathing more smooth and peaceful.


Various cleansing techniques will be applied in your daily schedule to help you advance in your meditation and asana practise.

Meditation & Mantra chanting

Mantras are repetitive sounds and vibrations that penetrate the soul helping us make ourselves prepare for meditation by tranquillising our minds. During the course, we take you through different mantras which leads to deeper meditation levels.

Teaching Methodology

200 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training India

200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training India: Review

200-hour yoga teacher training in India registered with Yoga Alliance, USA at yoga school Rishikesh Yog Dham – RYS 200.

I received my first formal yoga instruction with Arvind as one of my teachers in Rishikesh, India more than two years ago. He was a wonderful teacher, firm but very kind and concerned with transferring his knowledge and experience of yoga to all of his students, he could see the possibilities in every one of us and pushed us so that we could be our best selves. One day he sat on my back and then, for the first time in my life, I touched my toes in paschimottanasana, I will never forget this. Because of his vision and wonderful instruction, as well as the rest of the team at Rishikesh Yog Peeth, I was inspired to stay on the yogic path and since then, have become a devoted practitioner of ashtanga yoga. I feel grateful beyond words for my experience at Rishikesh. Namaste.
