Abhayaranya - Rishikesh Yogpeeth was a transformational experience that fulfilled much more than my expectations. The 200 hour teacher's course is holistic and balanced with a particularly generous dose of spirituality and Eastern Mysticism. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to look inwards and find peace while looking good on the outside too : ) I take what they taught me with me everyday and look forward to the time when I'll return.
5 / 5 stars
Really enjoyed the 'Abhayaranya - Rishikesh Yogpeeth' experience. I was looking for a strong foundation to start a path in yoga and learn how to become a great teacher and that is exactly what I found. They have an amazing vision for the future so I envy the people studying with Yog Peeth about a year from now.Written by: Carrie Sikman
This teacher training course was life changing. There are not many places you can go for a long period of time and learn about the nature of the world; the universe. I have been waiting for an opportunity such as this to come my way for many years now and am so happy to have experienced the intensive study with Abhayaranya - Rishikesh Yogpeeth. Best of luck to the organization in the future.
Abhayaranya - Rishikesh Yogpeeth holds a very special place in my heart. While I came for yoga I returned from India with a much deeper understanding of life. Asana classes were rigorous and fun at the same time and it opened up my body and spirit towards meditation and appreciation. A year later, back in Manhatten I still look back at Yogpeeth with joy and respect. You will feel lucky it came on your path ,like I did.
Traveling to India to learn yoga was the right thing to do for me. My concept of "yoga" was transformed from the Western physical activity to the spiritual Indian experience. It's a perfect introduction to the complex discipline that is Yoga -and it is explained in a friendly way. Abhayaranya - Rishikesh Yogpeeth made the experience a non pretentious process which I feel enabled me to understand the true meaning of yoga. I would totally recommend this course to anybody who is interested in learning about the self and Indian culture.
I attended the 200 Hour TTC June-July 2012 and I still glow every time I think about my experience at Abhayaranya - Rishikesh Yogpeeth. Sanjay and Roshan created a very comfortable environment in which to learn and grow and the other students were (and continue to be...we still keep in touch!) very supportive of one another. I was able to deepen my practice I came to India with and continue to challenge myself throughout the training. The food was delicious and the local outings were so much fun! I highly recommend attending this teacher training course.
Learning yoga in Rishikesh is a truly unique & life changing experience. Rishikesh has been the cradle of this ancient wisdom tradition for centuries. Many great saints and numerous practitioners have spent their lives practicing and developing this wonderful science of life in these very mountains. Yoga students feel a very palpable spiritual energy and grace when they spend time in practice here.
The benefits of studying Yoga in Rishikesh are so many, but the foremost reason for coming here is perhaps that everyone is here for the same reason and you instantly share a passion in common. Normally when you encounter new people there may be something in common; you are from the same town, work in the same profession, have similar hobbies, kids-house-garden and all that… but for most people here; yoga is a passion and sharing a passion creates very strong bonds. Bonds that stretch across oceans, nations, cultures, religions, age, gender and sometimes last a lifetime… That is why there are so many tear-filled goodbyes at the end of each course at Rishikesh Yogpeeth. People connected through their hearts, through their passion for yoga, who have for six weeks been tied together in a web of wordless understanding, sharing their dreams and climbing the same ladder towards the desired diploma has reached the point of separation. It is painful. Leaving the yoga tribe, a temporary spiritual family of equal minded souls in one of the most spiritual places in the world... it is not easy.
That is of course up to each individual to answer, but for me (Jenny Wickman - RYT 200 :: Graduated in May 2012) personally it turned out to be a great choice. Abhayaranya - Rishikesh Yogpeeth offers a package concept of traditional style of yoga (asanas, pranayama, meditation, philosophy and physiology), nice accomodation, excellent food and available teachers all in one peaceful place. When I decided to become a certified yoga teacher it was important for me to get a proper, international Yoga certification from a registered school (RYS 200 or 500) with dedicated teachers, offering 200-hour residential Yoga Teacher Training. I had been to Rishikesh on a holiday two years before and it somehow felt destined to return to this little town for some life changing six weeks.
Yoga Institute Abhayaranya - Rishikesh Yogpeeth has decided to put on hold all scholarship programs being currently offered for our yoga teacher training courses, starting January 2019.
