What is Ashtanga yoga?

Ashtanga yoga is the ancient yoga form which means 'eight-limbs' of yoga. The eight limbs are yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi as per Sage Patanjali under the book yoga sutra. Later, Ashtanga yoga was popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois during the 20th century. Pattabhi Jois was also one of the first students of Krishnamacharya.

Where he took the third practice of Ashtanga yoga which is asana, he created a specific series of posture and rest of other need to be combined with it. This yoga form is dynamic, flowing style that connects the movement of the body with the breath. Under the ashtanga yoga of Pattabhi Jois, there are majorly three series:

  • The primary series: yoga Chikitsa, yoga for health, or yoga therapy
  • The intermediate series: Nadi Shodhana, the nerve purifier (also called the second series)
  • The advanced series: Sthira Bhaga, centering of strength

This 200-hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh with Rishikesh Yoga Association will be more focused on primary series. It is a beginner program so it is so important for a beginner first to be focused on primary series in order to understand it.

Location

The entire vibe and energy of Rishikesh are apt for wholesome transformations through yoga. The town is blessed with abundant natural beauty as it is settled at the foothills of Great Himalayas. Rishikesh Yoga Association campus is situated in the Tapovan area which is the most prime location to practice yoga in Rishikesh. Surrounded by lush green trees, the fresh breeze coming straight from the mountains is in itself a dose of positive energy.

What making Rishikesh the best place for yoga is the presence of the Holy River Ganges flowing right through its heart. When the whole ambiance is so pure and revitalizing, the yogic journey becomes even more fruitful. The school offers best views of the Himalayan Mountains and the majestic Ganges is just at the walking distance from the school. Thus, taking you a step closure to nature during your yoga teacher training in Rishikesh.

You might even spot some beautiful birds and animals like cows or squirrels around the school, giving you an experience of harmony and peaceful co-existence. Alongside impeccable training, the staff at Rishikesh Yoga Association is dedicated to providing all the students a comfortable and enjoyable stay. From rooms to food, the staff takes care of everything like that for a family.

Food

Yoga is about bringing a positive change in your body and mind, thereby bringing an overall transformation. Yoga is not just limited to your yoga hall, but it also extends to your dining table. Hence, it is important to maintain a healthy diet. At Rishikesh Yoga Association, they serve a Satvik diet to the yoga teacher trainees. The Satvik diet which includes vegetables, fruits, and so on is considered to be the best diet to keep a light and healthy body.

Food which tends to make one’s body either too lethargic or hyperactive is avoided. Rishikesh Yoga Association makes sure that the kitchen area and the food is clean and hygienic. Also, the food is freshly prepared for immediate consumption because it gives the best results. Consuming the Satvik diet for a few days will automatically satiate your body needs and your body will not crave for any unhealthy food.

Along with the food, it is also important to keep a check on the time that you consume. The classes and the food breaks are so scheduled that the food benefits you the most. Rishikesh Yoga Association also keeps in mind if any student is allergic to any specific food ingredient. In such a scenario, the student can approach the staff to inform them about their allergy.
