About Vedic Yoga Foundation – Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh

Very often, yoga is misunderstood as being limited to complicated poses and asanas. Its benefits are perceived to be at the body limit, when in reality yoga plays an important role in uniting the body, mind and breath. Once the harmony is understood, the journey becomes calmer and fulfilling.

Located in the heart of one of India’s sacred places, Rishikesh, Vedic Yoga Foundation has a lot to offer for yoga practitioners of different levels. Here, within the pristine atmosphere, the benefits of yoga are felt in a profound yet subtle manner.

What makes Vedic Yoga Foundation different from other Yoga schools is the effort the School has put in ensuring the safety of Women. Vedic Yoga Foundation is a Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh owned by a Yogini (Woman Yoga Practitioner) who has put all her efforts in making sure that the school is safe for women who come to attend the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course. There are also two lady teachers to teach the 200 Hour TTC.

Yoga and India

Yoga and India

Yoga is a spiritual discipline that originated in India. The practice of yoga is believed to have begun with the dawn of civilization. It was born even before religion was born, several thousands of years ago. It is believed that Shiva, who was the Adiyogi or the first practitioner of yoga imparted his knowledge to seven rishis called Saptarishis on the banks of the lake Kantisarovar in the Himalayas. These Saptarishis spread this ancient science across Asia, the Middle East, Northern Africa and South America.

In the west, yoga gained popularity as physical exercise. In India, you will discover that yoga extends beyond that. It has a meditative and spiritual core. Yoga and meditation are two sides of the same coin. They do not adhere to any particular religion, belief system or community. It is a technology for overall wellbeing.

India is a land of divine souls. Many great men and women have walked along the path of spiritual pursuits. We have had countless saints who have their roots in Rishikesh making it a sacred land with their consecration. Their cumulative meditative energy that is passed on to the environment of Rishikesh makes it a conducive and beneficial place to learn Yoga.

Therefore, when you learn yoga here, not only are you taking back the knowledge of an ancient science, but also some of the positive and mystical vibes that surround this place and become a part of anyone who is receptive of this energy. As our Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi beautifully put it across, Yoga has the same importance as salt in our lives.
