Program

The program of 100-hour Kundalini yoga teacher training is a beginner’s course that teaches you to activate, harness and channelize your kundalini energy. Rishikesh Yoga Association has created a course curriculum that can educate you on all finer aspects of kundalini yoga practice and teaching.

What is Kundalini yoga teacher training?

Kundalini Yoga TTC is the beginner level programmer and a top-up of regular teacher training where aspirants are introduced with Kundalini force by experiencing the perfect harmony of cosmic energy with eliminating energy.

The science of this bodily energy awakening requires a code of conduct mentioned in the yogic text and one should not expect unrealistic achievement without following them.

During the course, the participants are instructed to follow the guideline derived by the instructor and have to practice the breathing control in leisure time.

Since the objective, of course, is very intense and one has to be ethical as per the yogic textbook and principle, hence it needs a long time practice and one should not expect the immediate effect just after completion of course.

Benefits

  • Increased circulation of blood and lymph in the body
  • Improved functioning of the lungs
  • Once performed regularly, it helps get rid of negative energies and brings about happiness and joy to your life
  • It helps you get rid of addictions
  • Helps make the nervous system and immune strong
  • Kundalini yoga is also a good way to burn those extra calories and lose weight
  • It nurtures within you a sense of calm and inner peace which helps you perform better in all walks of life
  • Kundalini yoga inculcates positivity and helps get rid of negative feelings

Kundalini yoga is more spiritual in nature and has a deeper meaning, beyond the postures and poses, it lays emphasis on chanting, breathing and meditation and mudras. Kundalini yoga sequences, due to its mental and physical challenges, are quite intense.

Retreat 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 makes 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. The staff is kind enough to prepare a separate meal for such students.
