Our courses are internationally recognized
Kaivalya Yoga School is registered with Yoga Alliance (USA),Yoga Alliance International and is recognized by the government of India. Combined with our curriculum, a strong foundation is built for you to start your career as a certified yoga instructor anywhere in the world.

Our curriculum
Yoga is not just asanas (postures) but has many other aspects. The purpose of yoga is to develop the harmony of body, mind and psyche (emotions). To achieve this ultimate purpose of yoga, we emphasize on all aspects of yoga in our teacher training program: Shatkarmas, Asanas, Mudras, Bandhas, Pranayamas, Yoga Nidra, Meditation, Yoga Philosophy, Bhagvad Geeta, and Ayurveda. Yoga therapy is part of the syllabus. By this approach, our students gain a proper and deep understanding of their own practice that they can in turn share with others.

Teaching methodology

  • Our course is practical Yoga, not merely theoretical
  • Everything we teach is shared in a simple manner and demonstrated by teachers so they can be easily applied to day to day life.
  • Teaching practice
  • Our students should also expect to give presentations and to conduct the classes as teachers. The simultaneous learning and teaching experience gives confidence of application of the acquired knowledge. Small batches of students
  • Batches are between 10-14 in number, so that ample attention can be paid to every student. We use a one-on-one approach, helping students with correct alignment, correct muscle engagement, correct breathing, etc. Students are also encouraged to engage in one-on-one interaction with the teachers as questions arise and they wish to learn more.
  • Study books
  • Study books are provided by us in the beginning of the course. Inclusive in course fee.

We preserve the tradition of Yoga
One of our principles is to continue the uninterrupted flow of thousands of years of traditional yoga. In our teaching, we strongly abide by the classical vision of yoga clearly described in the great works on yoga: the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and old scriptures of Hatha yoga – Gheranda Samhita, Shiv Samhita and Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Our deep commitment towards the great works of the past does not contradict with the modern approach to yoga. On the contrary, we highly honor modern authors, researchers, scholars, and masters like H.H.Swami Sivananda Saraswati and H.H.Swami Satyananda Saraswati who continue to further the understanding of traditional Hatha yoga. We even encourage our students to be creative in their practice of yoga as long as the correct understandings of its genuine goals are preserved.

Location: Rishikesh
It is well known that Rishikesh (India) holds the title of the world’s yoga capital and rightfully so. According to old scriptures, Rishikesh is the place to attain higher states of mind through Yoga. The home of many ancient and world renowned ashrams like Maharishi Yoga Ashram and Sivananda Ashram is none other than Rishikesh. Situated at the foothills of the Himalayas, with the Holy river Ganga flowing alongside sandy beaches, mystic waterfalls, ashrams and Ganga aarti (fire ceremonies), Rishikesh is a serene and peaceful place. It is the perfect place to learn yoga and a place that many people from across the world fall in love with.

Outdoor activities and bonding among students
We arrange outdoor activities each weekend, like trekking, river rafting (subject to seasonal availability), local sightseeing, visits to ashrams, Ganga aarti (fire ceremonies), and outdoor meditation so that students can get to know each other outside of the class. These bonding sessions are an opportunity to make lifelong friendships. During the course, we also encourage student’s interaction and bonding through group discussions, presentations, quiz programs and group activities.

Our yoga teachers come from different schools of yoga
Kaivalya Yoga School is perhaps the only yoga school in Rishikesh, India to have so many highly-educated yoga teachers from diverse backgrounds, combining knowledge from many rich sources. Teachers in our school come from a variety of schools and ashrams like Morarji Desai National Institute of yoga, Divine Life Society, Bihar School of Yoga, Jayaram Ashram, Gurukul Kangdi, and Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidalaya. Through their experiences of living and studying in ashrams, they have gained their yoga knowledge directly from the best yoga, meditation, and ayurveda teachers in India. Moreover, we are proud to have Masters who have developed their own style and methodologies in yoga and meditation as our honored teachers and guest lecturers.

We are the only teacher training school in Rishikesh to combine Ayurveda with yoga. We believe that with the correct understanding of your own body and its constitution, you can derive the best benefits of yoga. Therefore, we provide personalized Ayurveda consultations and dietary suggestions for each student in our teacher training course. These consultations will help you understand your own body better and let you achieve good health forever with the dual health benefits of yoga and Ayurveda. Inclusive in course fee.
