Staying and studying with Punyah Yoga is already a unique experience due to its location: set in close proximity to nature, being near the magnificent Himalayan Mountains, and close to the banks of Holy Ganga (or otherwise known as the Ganges). To improve it even more and to allow the students to enjoy the full benefits of the course at every level, Punyah Yoga takes particular care to arrange a cozy, comfortable and peaceful stay for every participant.

Located in a tranquil surrounding, yet still, in the heart of Rishikesh (lively Tapovan), your neat and clean rooms offer a perfect base for good-night sleep and regeneration after an eventful day of practice and learning.

The rooms are equipped with all necessary modern facilities: en-suites with hot water 24/7, and a reliable fast internet connection.

The accommodation is on a single or sharing basis - according to preference - inside the same building is your yoga shala and training hall.

Please let Punyah Yoga know if you would like to come earlier or stay longer - they are happy to help you with all the arrangements. If you are taking a course along with your partner or friend and wish to stay together, please let Punyah Yoga know in advance. They will do their best to accommodate you.

Program

Punyah Yoga offers Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga residential Teachers Training Courses (TTC) located in the valleys of the Himalayan Mountains in the district of Tapovan, Rishikesh in India. The school follows the ancient Gurukala system, a traditional Indian practice where the teachers and students will live in the same place for the duration of the course. This way, students can closely interact with dedicated teachers and staff that have immersed themselves in the yogic lifestyle.

The curriculum of your program is extensive enough to cover both theory and practice. The curriculum stems from an ancient teaching principle (Guru Parampara) where knowledge and theory are passed down from a Guru to a disciple through thousands of years. Devotional practices, genuine to the tradition of India, constitute an integral part of the course.

Punyah Yoga have prepared and carefully structured the school and course to be optimal and conducive for reflective learning. They have set the school around stunning natural beauty - away from the distractions of city living. The school offers vegetarian/vegan food, prepares a fitting space for learning, and encourages daily yoga and meditation.

A sincere desire to learn and openness to yogic techniques is required – basic knowledge of yoga postures and philosophy is helpful, but not essential. Upon completion of the course, graduates will be given an internationally-recognized certificate.

Retreat location

Rishikesh is a busy and buzzing town: one could expect to see many temples, yoga schools, daily drop-in yoga classes, loitering cows and dogs, hotels, motels, guest houses, chai corners, coffee shops, a German bakery, multi-cuisine restaurants, yoga massage places, fruits stalls, trekking tour guides, scooter, and taxi rentals - you name it. Also, one could also expect to meet local tourists from various parts of India and travelers from all around the globe.

There are many popular ashrams here: Parmarth Ashram, Gita Ashram, and Sachidanand Ashram - all of which offer yogic food at a very minimal price. There is also the Ganges Aarti: a ritual that uses fire as an offering. This proves to be a very popular event for anyone who is in Rishikesh. Parmarth aarti and Triveni ghat aarti is also known to draw in crowds.

Rishikesh becomes quieter as soon as evening arrives and the sun settles down. Shops shut down by 8 p.m. There are a number of good cafes to explore around the area which is mostly open until 10 p.m. to 11 p.m.
