In keeping with the requirements of Yoga Alliance - USA, 500 hour TTC program follows a tight schedule where 6 to 7 training hours in the day are assigned to some aspect of yoga. You may find the training intensive but enlightening. Depending on the time of the year, mornings can begin as early as 5:30 a.m. with meditation followed by some yoga postures and classes or lectures in philosophy or anatomy. Chanting and pranayama are also part of the schedule. During training you are provided with three yoga meals, fruit refreshments and green tea. Daily written homework is also the norm as that is how you will gain in-depth knowledge of the subject. Sleeping early is encouraged as that is part of yogic practice.

Abhayaranya campus is situated on the foothills of Himalaya surrounded by the forest at a small village called Patna, just 5 km away from Laxman Jhula market of Rishikesh. It is approximately 1.5 km from the road head and it takes a steep hike of 25-30 min to reach the centre. This hike is one of the unique features of this centre, just like the path of Yoga, which tends to be difficult to start with but rewarding at the end.

Abhayaranya Campus is equipped with 18 Cottages with two spacious and comfortable rooms in each with plenty of open space in surroundings. Every room has Twin Beds and attached bathrooms with running hot & cold showers. Each room can have either single or double occupancy, depending upon the choices made by the participants. There is also a large dining hall where more than a hundred people can have meals together.

For academic activities there are two spacious Yoga halls and a library where you can access many books on Yoga & Indian culture

Rishikesh Yogpeeth is a globally reputed Yoga Teaching and Training Centre registered with Yoga Alliance, USA as RYS 200, 300 & 500. We hold over 14 years of experience in Yoga Teacher Training Courses and have witnessed more than 6,000 students to take part in our registered training programs from across the world. With traditional understanding and modern methods, Rishikesh Yogpeeth is a group of Yoga enthusiasts aiming at sharing one of the oldest and legendary traditions of Yoga for physical, mental and spiritual well being. We offer several 200, 300 and 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training Courses throughout the year specializing to cater the need of an international audience with a team of well experienced Yoga Teachers. One of the courses we offer is the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, which is primary Certification Course in the field of Yoga Teaching. The training is conducted in Rishikesh, known as the spiritual birthplace of Yoga. The centre is nestled in tranquil and peaceful surroundings and students come from world over to the region to learn more about the ancient discipline.

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.

We believe Yoga is a gift to entire humanity and its practice is an antidote to the stress and suffering of our lives. We want to bring the benefits of this science to the whole world. We also believe that India, as the birth place of Yoga, has a special responsibility to continue to spread this message of Yoga to the world in its original essence.

We are conscious of this responsibility to make sincere efforts on the path of Yoga in its true spirit, with compassion, in the right way, and with right expectations. Where possible, we will use the insights of science to deepen our understanding of yogic practices. Yoga was never meant to be followed blindly. Questioning everything is also yoga.

Evaluation & Certification

  • Assessments will be based on written as well as practical evaluation.
  • Student conduct will be a part of the assessment criterion.
  • Evaluation will be carried out only for those students who have a minimum of 90% attendance.

Ethical Guidelines

  • Rishikesh Yogpeeth adopts the ancient approach to yoga to inculcate in each student the wisdom that yoga manifests. Teaching and learning is therefore designed in such a way that ethical practices are ingrained automatically in the students at the Yog Peeth.
  • The day begins with the daily regimen (Dincharya) and ancient code of conduct. Activities are planned according to seasonal code of conduct (Ritucharya). The concept of behavior chemistry (Achar- rasayan) is the concept that students are expected to imbibe.
  • Maharishi Patanjali prescribed certain rules of how a person is expected to act in society (Yama) and how personal code and conduct (Niyama) is the expected and essential behavior for individuals to follow. We at the Yog Peeth expect this behavior terminology to be understood and practiced sincerely and honestly by all students to the best extent possible.
  • Before students register for the yoga teacher training they must be aware that this traditional teaching will differ from that of the west. There could even be a fundamental difference in the understanding of the yogic path as that which is taught in the yoga schools in the west.
  • Modified exercises that go by the name of yoga are frowned upon by Rishikesh Yog Peeth and so only those students must apply for the course who are willing to commit to the strict regimen of the Peeth.

Code of Conduct

  • Discipline is an integral part of the training program and so the course routine must be strictly observed.
  • Disrespect to rules and regulations could result in termination of studentship with no refund of fee.
  • Absenting oneself from the scheduled program without prior permission of the teacher or manager concerned would be construed as a gross breach of discipline.
  • A student must intimate in advance if they intend to forgo a meal so that there is no wastage of food.
  • The Yoga Peeth does not make arrangements for guests of students. Any activity that is not related to the course is not permitted.
  • Ensure you are on time for class or you will not be permitted to enter any class once it has commenced.
  • Before departure from the Peeth students must all dues and return all library books.
  • Smoking and alcohol are not permitted during the training.

    Far from the chaos of the busy city on the higher side of the foothills lies this beautiful yoga center hidden in the greens of the Himalayan forests. I stayed at this place for four months and each day began with a fresh and aspiring mindset and ended with great virtuous learnings about life. There was not a single day when I didn't end up learning something new from the amazing yoga gurus and how it changed my life for the good. The teachers, the management, and the entire staff of Abhayaranya are the most beautiful souls I have met. They are my home away from home. For anyone planning to be in India to experience Yoga, I recommend this place with all my heart <3
