Benefits of Yoga & Understanding Yoga beyond asanas:

Yoga is often looked at as just a physical exercise, fancy twisting & turning of the body. In our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher training course at Rishikesh Yoga Valley, we will introduce you to yoga beyond asanas - yoga as a way of life (yogic lifestyle), yoga as a way to heal self & others - mentally, physically, & emotionally. We, at Rishikesh Yoga Valley, will introduce you to the authentic yoga that was once practised by ancient Indians to not just live a peaceful & prosperous life, but also to attain greater & divine knowledge, to look within, to ask right questions, and to walk the right path.

Over the years, our students' little community has grown to be a safe space for learning, sharing & helping each other grow. There are demo sessions where our students are allowed to be incharge of the class and conduct the yoga sessions. This allows students to conduct their first class within the academy, helping them to build confidence, a safe space to correct others & to be corrected, to share & receive constructive feedback. Our students also discuss their ideas for teaching, tips to enhance the student experience & better teaching, & help each other grow.

Personal Growth:

As we have already mentioned yoga is not just a physical exercise, the benefits of yoga go beyond our physical body, yoga is for our mental, emotional, spiritual growth & even beyond that. The immersive experience of yoga is such that it helps the performer to look within & discover their hidden feelings, passions, talents, etc. It helps the performer to build a deeper connection with themselves & the Universe.
