Our teaching method is more practical than theoretical

At Kaivalya Yoga School, we strongly believe that yoga is not just theoretical knowledge, but rather practical wisdom.

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 etc.. 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, H.H.Swami Satyananda Saraswati, H.H. Swami Yogananda, H.H. Swami Rama, H.H. Swami Veda Bharti etc. 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.

Enough has been said about the appropriateness of right state and right time for success in yoga, however not much seems to have been said about the right place. Right places have right energies conducive to yogic success. Kaivalya Yoga School is based at the very foothill of spiritual energy. Rishikesh is where you begin the Himalayan journey of self-realisation. No wonder Rishikesh (India) holds the title of the world’s yoga capital. According to old scriptures, Rishikesh is the place to attain higher states of mind through Yoga. It’s compared to the muladhara chakra.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 aarati (fire ceremonies), Rishikesh is a serene and peaceful place. It is the perfect place to learn yoga and an abode that many people will fall in love with.

You will learn yoga combined with yoga therapy

The purpose of practicing yoga is to develop the harmony of body, mind and emotions which ultimately leads to self realization. The scientific researches done in last 60 years or more have brought the therapeutic benefits of yoga and this added advantage of practicing yoga is part of our curriculum as yoga therapy and you will be able to apply yoga more practically as therapy also.
