Yoga in Rishikesh

Yoga is something which has been associated with Rishikesh for decades now. A perfect environment always adds to the benefits of practicing this ancient Indian art form. The calming water of the holy Ganga, the Himalayas staring from a distance and the culture in Rishikesh is really a sight behold for any traveller. We’ve been hearing a lot of stories from our students traveling from abroad to study Yoga in Rishikesh. They are mainly of an opinion that Yoga which is practiced in western countries especially emphasizes the fitness aspect of the body but here in Rishikesh, it’s a different story altogether. A whole new transformation is what one experiences when the mind, body and soul start working in tandem. At the Rishikesh Yoga Association, Yoga practice is carried on. Rishikesh Yttc is the best Yoga Teacher Training Center In India.
