What's In The Kitchen

A Healthy Gut Is Home To Happiness!

Welcome to the kitchen of Vinyasa Yogashala. We have been planning to share this space with you all for a long time now, and here we are – excited, thrilled & definitely hungry! Handling a kitchen is not a one-man army; a whole force works together to serve a soul that sees nothing but a plate full of delicious and nutritious meals after a hectic yet productive day in class. We understand how food plays a vital role in our development, especially during the course, and that’s a reason why our team prepares some of the most mouthwatering dishes backed by healthy, organic & pure natural fruits, food, spices, and other products.

"Annam Brahma Raso Vishnu Pakto Devo Mahesvara Evam Jnatva Tu Yo Bhunkte Anna Dosho Na Lipyate" means Brahma gives us food Vishnu has the ability to find its essence Shiva cooks this essence into us When you eat with this awareness The food becomes pure, and no toxins stay in you

Everything has a taste of its own, from farm-picked berries to organically grown potatoes, which are then cooked with flavours poured by our talented chefs. Curious to know how we prepare our meals and ensure everything is served according to a standard that demands extreme attention & great effort. How does a well-balanced diet during yoga classes play a crucial role in balancing your hormones and giving energy to your body? 

Nutrients to support your hormonal balance 

A well-balanced diet prevents nutrient deficiency and affects energy, mood, and overall well-being by bringing mind and body in sync, positively impacting mental health, and bringing a sense of harmony.

Do you know?

  • Eating complex carbohydrates helps maintain stable blood sugar levels and is important for sustaining energy levels during yoga practice sessions. 
  • Staying hydrated is equally important, and the kind of water you consume matters a lot. Thus, we use filtered water (RO purified) in our school and provide the same to our students since good water supports digestion and helps regulate body temperature during physical exercise.

Everything You Need To Know

Meal Timings Matter At school, we are extremely disciplined when it comes to meal times. Everyone is pre-informed about the schedule, and we make sure that no student skips their meal because energy is important for muscle recovery. 
Adaptogens & Herbs Some adaptogens and herbs like ashwagandha and holy basil are believed to help the body adapt to stress and balance our hormones.
More Anti-inflammatory Foods Foods like fruits and vegetables aim to reduce inflammation and improve joint health during practice, which regularly boosts your ‘feeling healthy energy.’ 
Digestive Health Bloating and discomfort can be two major restrictions during your practice, and thus, we make sure that a diet rich in fibre is served to prevent you from such issues.
Vegan Dishes We serve vegetarian food at our premises, but we also make vegan food. If you are a vegan, get ready to taste some of the most interesting recipes in our kitchen, which are absolutely delicious. 
Health & Hygiene We are extremely cautious to maintain strict hygiene standards, and yes, we do follow the same at our premises. We don’t let our staff move around without mandatory measures like wearing hair nets, gloves, and aprons while working in the kitchen, and many more rules that are carefully crafted by our management. 
Refreshments Refreshments are the highlights of our kitchen. We make a lot of healthy drinks and serve them to our students so that they always have a magnifying energy that keeps them active and less tired. Drinks are made from fruits, herbs, and spices; several times, they are cold, but during winter, we serve hot and soupy drinks to enhance your mood & tastebuds. 
Seasonal Foods India is a season paradise, and no matter what season you decide to visit us in, we always have some authentic dishes ready for you. Our focus is to serve you healthy seasonal foods that support your metabolism during that specific time. It’s always a joy to see our students enjoying the different tastes of India.
Served Hot We don’t compromise on serving hot food. Eating hot food right from the chef’s kitchen is the goal. The whole Vinyasa army makes sure everyone eats with a wholesome heart & feels the warmth we try to spread around. 
Customised Food If you are allergic to anything in particular, please let us know in advance, and our chef will prepare separate food for you. Nothing is more important than your health; indeed, we are open to your specifications or any health issue specific to a food item. 
What can you expect? There is soup, papads, Indian bread (multi-grains), rice, porridge, muesli, salads, tea, milk, curd, lentils, cakes, and various types of sweets to enjoy – our menu is a healthy balance of three times meals.
Original Spices We prefer to hand-pick our spices ourselves from some of the best local Indian stores and don’t rely on artificially packed spices, which are cheap and hamper the health of our students. 
Our Magic Our magic is our hospitality; we love to host everyone at Vinyasa Yogashala. Our chef, staff, and everyone who works together to prepare the meals are the magic behind such delicious recipes.

"Be it vegan, gluten-free, food without spices, or if you have any specific food requirement, you are served what you are comfortable consuming. The best part at Vinyasa Yogashala is you eat organic fruits and vegetables, freshly sourced from our farms and then cooked by our fantastic chef. When our students eat healthy and fresh, the energy they absorb through" food is helpful in their training."

I have been in the school for the last five years, and every time students appreciate my work or tap on my back, it’s a feeling of pride.

When it comes to Yoga, any place that manages to touch you internally , be it mental or emotional , is a good place to learn and to be grateful for and Vinyasa Yogashala is 1 such place. The people of this place, who manage it, run it & teach here- they are a family and they make you their family by the love & responsibility they share for their students. I'm someone who has done multiple TTCs and yet I was able to learn so much more especially from the Asana classes that are really good, technical & detailed. The excursions that they took us on are going to stay with us forever. The extra activities like sound healing and Kirtan were amazing experiences that were healing on so many different levels. We'll forever be grateful to Ashish ji, Tanu ji, Vinay ji, Rahul ji, Vikas ji, Shivam ji, Deepak, Prithvi, Arushi and the staff for their kindness and support.

I always wanted to do a Yoga teacher training course while I was teaching English abroad. My mum introduced me to the wonderful practice of yoga 10 years ago when I was 24 years old. No matter where I am in the world or whatever challenges I face, Yoga has always been my grounding practice. 18 months postpartum, after the birth of my miracle baby boy, I was searching for yoga courses and I gratefully came across the course by Vinyasa Yogashala. The content by Vinyasa Yogashala is extremely well spaced out, it is so helpful being a busy mum and I would look forward to my time every day when I would be able to practice an learn. The course is affordable and the guru’s have put through so much knowledge in helping us grow. It’s been a massive transformative journey with understanding myself and every aspect of Yoga. This course is highly recommended and if you have no intention of teaching yoga do this course for yourself. You will gain so much depth and a massive spiritual awakening that is life changing.

Just finished the 200H TTC and I am so grateful I choose this school. The teachers were amazing so knowledgeable and helpful. Throughout the course they would answer any question, go over and beyond to help me understand about asanas, yoga philosophy, anatomy, pranayama, meditation and offer their support whenever I needed to. I came here having experience of 3 years doing yoga and even in the first day I was blown away by how much I actually didn't know and how much more knowledge I could get out of this course. The facilities of the school were amazing, the food provided was always super tasty and made with so much care. And most importantly the psychological support and positive reinforcement I got from Ashish, Tanu and all the teachers really made me feel like I was part of their yoga family. If you are looking for not just a yoga class but a life changing experience you should book this school without a second thought.

Following the online teacher training. The course is really clear and thorough, very profound. The teachers are very experienced en explain everything very good. It's a very complete course, not only the basics are covered, but they give you so many tips and advice for when you're teaching your own classes. You can ask anything at anytime, always a quick respons. Everyone is so helpful and understanding. I would recommend this course to everyone who wants to take their yoga to a deeper level! I can't wait to follow their courses on location!

I'm doing the 200 hours yoga teaching training course and I have been discovering that yoga is a lot more than I thought. It has been a rewarding and enchanting experience. All the teachers instruct very well and are so dedicated to what they do. I recommend the online course for people who can manage their own time, for you can study whenever you want, but there is a necessity to separate a time to the readings and videos, for in the course there is a lot of content, which I'm in love with.

A life changing experience to live. Teachers are amazing, highly professional and knowledgeable. If you are planning to create a discipline in your life with yoga, this is the place to be. The food is fully vegetarian and healthy with variety of meals. The institute is run by a family so you feel that in every step of your journey in the course, you have someone to take care of you. The accommodation is clean, hygienic and the cleaning service happens everyday, laundry service is also there in case you need.

Namaste 🙏 I've completed my 200 hours teacher training course at Vinyasa Yogashala. To begin with, searching for a good yoga institute is a daunting task. I'm super glad that I chose Vinyasa Yogashala - it is undoubtedly one of the best yoga institutes in Rishikesh. Period. I was awestruck by the sheer hardwork and sincerity by the staff and faculty to make you feel home and comfortable from day one. The teachers are really knowledgeable and are subject matter experts in their respective fields. Food was delicious and apt for yoga practice. The course was nicely balanced including theory and practicals with enough emphasis on teaching methodology. During our day offs, weekend excursions and fun events were organized, which really rejuvenated the mind and induced a sense of camaraderie among students. I would highly recommend Vinyasa Yogashala. Definitely coming back again in future for 300 hour course. Thanks! 🙂

If your practice is feeling a bit stagnant, Vinyasa Yogashala is the perfect place to reignite your passion for yoga. With experienced instructors and an open atmosphere, this yoga school provides an environment that promotes growth and self-discovery. In addition, I noticed one amazing thing about this Yogashala: they are not only limited to teachings but also take you on tour in and around Rishikesh. The classes are challenging but accessible, allowing you to take your practice to the next level. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced yogi, Vinyasa has something for everyone. The beautiful decor and calming energy make it the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day; even the food is delicious. You'll feel welcomed and at home when you step through the doors. With its commitment to providing high-quality instruction and creating an inclusive space, Vinyasa Yogashala is the perfect place to deepen your yoga practice. At least it was for me.

FAQs - Yoga Teacher Training Rishikesh

How to become a Yoga teacher in Rishikesh?

To become a yoga teacher in Rishikesh first and foremost step is to be a trained and certified teacher from a reputed institute that is registered under the Yoga Alliance. You can also be a teacher of the school from which you have taken classes just look for the vacancy and the style they teach. If the pocket pinch suits you and you are comfortable with the style apply to the school as per vacancy and submit all the details.

What should be my course time to become a yoga teacher?

The basic time that one must dedicate to yoga before one can become a yoga teacher is 200 hours. This time is allotted for one to learn all the basic concepts. Followed if you wish you can also do a 300 and 500 hours course to enhance your skills and learn more.

Is registering with the Yoga Alliance compulsory and worthy?

Well registering with the Yoga Alliance is something of goodwill thus this is an absolute worthy task to do. Apart from that if you are someone who wants to be a Yoga teacher in the United States, Canada then registering with them is compulsory.

Yoga Alliance certificate or what is Yoga alliance certificate mean?

Yoga Alliance is just a regulatory or directory body that monitors several yoga schools and looks after their activities. This institution directory does not provide any certificate. One will get certificated from registered yoga schools itself. The task of Yoga Alliance is to monitor different schools and provide them ratings and certificated based on their workings.

How hard is Hatha Yoga?

Well, the word "hard" is very much a relative word that varies from person to person. Hatha yoga can be hard for you but for some else, this can be a very easy job to do. The journey of yoga will specifically be yours and will be a unique journey. Hatha yoga for an instance is the traditional form of yoga and can be performed y anyone with just a little practice.

What is the exact location in Rishikesh where I can practice yoga?

If you ask me personally then for me to do yoga in Rishikesh the best place is none other than the Vinyasa Yogshala. Here apart from just yoga poses and asanas you will also get several other facilities like Ayurveda retreats several other activities are also there. Apart from Vinyasa Yogshala, there are other schools and institutes as well at every corner of the city. There is no limitation of yoga schools in Rishikesh.

Average costing for yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh-

The cost of any teacher training course in Rishikesh depends upon the course that you will be chosen based upon your requirements. There are several courses which are of low budget whereas there are high budget courses as well. The costing will vary somewhere between USD1000 to USD3500. But high priced yoga center does not mean a better facility thus choose and research properly before you are enrolling yourself.

What are some of the best Yoga teacher training courses in Rishikesh?

There are plenty of courses that you can choose from in Rishikesh and every course has its benefits and advantages. The best will b according to your requirements and what you want from a particular course. But some of the amazing courses that you can find and I as a practitioner like are courses from Vinyasa Yogshala. The ethics and way of teaching that this school carries along with the design of each course is something which one has to look upon.

I am an amateur!! Can I be a Yoga teacher?

Anyone can be a yoga teacher provided he or she has all the relevant degrees and courses and certificates that are required to be a Yoga teacher. Anyone can be a teacher of any school or can also open his or her school or studio if the marketing is good. The very first thing in this process is just to take a 200-hour yoga teacher training class and get a certificate from (RYS) registered yoga school and start working as a Yoga teacher.
