Kaivalya Yoga school is located in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India. It was established with the purpose of sharing the ancient yoga traditions with students from around the world. Kaivalya Yoga teachers believe strongly in the traditions of yoga as they have been passed down in the hidden parts of the Himalayas for many millennia. At Kaivalya Yoga, you will discover a new depth to your yoga practice. While many yoga practitioners from around the world are familiar with the physical aspects of yoga, we find that many less students are familiar with the true yoga practices. In fact, they are being increasingly forgotten. Yoga is a spiritual practice. Through yoga students can achieve harmony of the body, mind, and emotions (or psyche). Asana practice scratches the surface of understanding this harmony, but deeper practices like Pranayama and Meditation have lasting and resonating effects.
Our purpose is to provide the highest quality yoga instruction and to share the full meaning and purpose of yoga with our students. Our vision is to continue the yoga traditions of thousands of years. Our 200 hour yoga teacher training course and yoga retreats are platforms for sharing the correct knowledge of yoga with students from around the world.
We teach a challenging 29-day residential teacher training course. Our teaching emphasizes practices like Pranayama, Meditation, Mudras, Bandhas, and Yoga Nidra that are essential for developing the proper harmony of mind and body. We fully understand that the yoga practices you have experienced in your own countries might be different from the ones taught at Kaivalya Yoga. Students who join our yoga family may be surprised at first by the traditional Hatha style of yoga. Our dedicated teaching team has many years of experience teaching international students and can help guide you in this new understanding.
