Hatha Yoga- Hatha yoga is the oldest form of yoga where Ha’ stands for Sun & ‘tha’ stands for Moon. Together, Hatha means balancing energies of sun & moon within one’s body & using them to achieve excellent physical health. It isn’t just a way of achieving fitness but also a holistic way of achieving full control over mind & body to do whatever you want in life. Bhujangasana (Cobra pose), Vrikshasana (Tree pose)), Trikonasana (Triangle pose), Naukasana (Boat pose), Balasana (Child pose), Dhanurasana (Bow pose), Virbhadrasana (Warrior 1 & 2 poses), Gomukhasana (Cow pose), Sarvangasana (Shoulder stand pose) & Paschimottanasana (Seated forward bend pose) are a few important poses that will be taught during Hatha Yoga training under 500 hour YTTC.

Padmasana (Lotus pose), Tadasana (Full body pose), Halasana (Plough pose), Karnapidasana (Ear pressure pose), Urdhva Padmasana (Upward Lotus pose), Pindasana (Embroyo pose in shoulder stand), Matsyasana (Fish pose with Lotus variation), Uttanasana (Raised Legs pose), Uthita Hasta Padangusthasana (Hand to big toe pose) & Prasarita Padottanasana (Wide Legged forward bend pose) are some of the poses taught in Ashtanga Yoga training under 500 hour YTTC.
Vinyasa Yoga- Vinyasa or Vinyasa Flow yoga is a contemporary style of yoga that combines some certain poses from Hatha & Ashtanga in a continuous way where the practitioner moves from one pose to another in a flow or without stopping. Vinyasa also means opposite of Hatha. Sun Salutations are a important part of Vinyasa yoga unlike others.

Yin Yoga- Yin Yoga is slow-paced yoga that is practised as a set of exercises that is based on Taoism. Its poses are practised for longer time & it focuses on free flow of ‘Qi’ (Energy) through the body. Through stretches, it helps in opening blockages in our blood, oxygen & sound flow through use of energy. Supported Child’s pose, Broken Wing pose, Butterfly pose, Pigeon pose, Supported Fish pose, Banana pose, Eagle pose, Reclined Eagle Spine pose, Twisted Dragon pose & Shoe-lace pose are some important poses taught in Yin Yoga training under 500 hour YTTC.
Meditation- Meditation and mantra-chanting for raising spiritual connectivity & awareness levels is an important part of this 500 hr. YTTC as it helps in clearing doubts about self, releasing stress & anxiety and in improving focus and mental psych. There are two types of mediations that will be taught under this multi-style yoga course. One is based on repeated mantra-chanting while the other is silent meditation that is based on focusing on one particular thing within the practitioner’s mind and letting go of other things. Besides, the practitioners will be given personal attention with question-answer sessions where they can raise their queries & get solutions to them. Also, they will be given precise notes & access to yoga & meditation books so that they can learn the best, get their certificates and get back to their lives as a trained yoga teacher.
Anatomy, Physiology, Philosophy & Shatkarma- Anatomy is the study of body’s structure that is seen, can be measured & weighted. Physiology is the study of chemical & physical process that take place in one’s body and how they work in sync together to support various functions of one’s body. While Philosophy is living a yogic lifestyle & thinking accordingly. It is more about how yoga learners think, act and conduct themselves during the course, what all they learn from it and how will they use it for self and for well-being of others. It is also about how they will imbibe & continue their journey of yoga in their lives after completing their course. Shatkarma is all about purifying one’s body and mind. For this there is ‘Jal neti’ & ‘Vayu neti’, both of which purify & boost your blood and oxygen circulation across your body.
I've read a lot of reviews about yoga schools in Rishikesh, and it seems like a lot are fake, or written by someone who never attended the course, so I started asking myself, how can I write a review that conveys truth.
In some ways, my expectations were exceeded. The experience as a whole was a good one and worth the cost which is comparatively low. The food was consistently good.
The location of the school is perfect, in the center so its an easy walk to cafes and shops but tucked a little further up on the mountain so you have a beautiful view.This is definitely a traditional Indian Ashram accommodation being very basic but nice for India standards. There isn't an outdoor area to hang out or read so much and the rooms are a little dark. The yoga hall however is beautiful big and airy.
This yoga school is simply awesome Every teacher is more than just teacher..very friendly & at the same time very professional.
