About Vinyasa Yogashala

Best Yoga School in Rishikesh

Yoga is a way of life, a union of one’s self with the higher self.

Vinyasa litereally (and only) means movement. There are external movements of body and internal movements of breath and when linking these movements together (inhale up, exhale down etc.) the movements of concioueness may be harnessed. this facilitates the upward movement of the three bandha. Movement is a universal aspect of nature and occurs on many levels simultaneously.

“O yogi, do not do asana (posture) without vinyasa” - RisiVamana.

What Is Vinyasa Tradition Practice?

The vinyasa in the traditional practice are variations on the theme of ‘Suryanamaskara’. It is from this foundation that all other movements flow. The salute to the ‘Sun’ begins from samastithi (equal upright position). The practice of vinyasa means to come back to this equilibrium from each posture (or after the second side of a posture that has left or right) whether Standing, Sitting, Lying or Inverted. The equilibrium ofsamastithi implies both physical and mental balance.

What Is Vinyasa Flow Yoga?

Vinyasa flow yoga is a style of yoga that concentrates on dynamic connecting postures that then create a flow between the more traditional poses. Through breath, the movement of the postures that are always done and are shared with special breathing called ‘Ujjayi breathing’ and the time of posture is held can be determined. The purpose of this style of yoga is to create heat within the body which then leads to sweating and ultimately purification of the body. Vinyasa flow can improve flexibility and strength with a reduced risk of injury.

“Doing a shorter practice and doing it well (with awareness ) is far beneficial than doing a longer practice badly (with an over achieving mind-set).“

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.
