Rishikul Yogshala’s scholarship program

The science of love, compassion, kindness and unity, yoga stems from one of the most devout backgrounds presented to mankind. The real lesson of yoga is to aim for universal consciousness and help others to prosper and fulfill their life’s purpose. Rishikul Yogshala resonates with this philosophy and believe in helping fellow yogis to become enlightened by this holy science of health and wellness.

Their Karma yoga endeavors have brought greatness to the lives that they have touched and Rishikul Yogshala is honored to offer a scholarship program of yoga teacher training, to enrich the yoga community, and make yoga accessible to all. Rishikul Yogshala has designed a scholarship program inspired by all those wishing to make yoga a career and spread the art form by becoming teachers.

Participants will be tasked with Karma yoga duties during their stay (helping with the upkeep of the school and local community projects). Accepted applicants will learn Ashtanga yoga, Hatha yoga, meditation techniques, transforming breath work, and theoretical knowledge related to yoga. Please note, the curriculum of this scholarship as well as regular students remain the same and there is no differentiation made between the two.

Who is eligible?

Rishikul Yogshala’s scholarships are here to be inclusive to all, regardless of background, occupation or yoga experience. The only prerequisite that they have is a devotion and unconditional love for the reformative art form and the desire to share this with others. Additionally, they prefer applicants who:

All applications will be thoroughly reviewed by the panel of their highly revered yoga gurus and decision will be communicated within one week from the date of application.

Rishikul Yogshala is registered with Yoga Alliance, USA, and the course is based on a combination of the traditional form of Hatha and Ashtanga yoga. The aim is to provide a strong foundational knowledge of yoga along with the correct postures, meditation process, breathing techniques, and philosophy, giving participants a strong foundation to go on to teach confidently with skill or to deepen their own self practice.

Reading the reviews by former students of Rishikul Yogshala it is clear to see the love that students who have completed the course feel for the teachers and course content.

Rishikul Yogshala has many years of experience in putting together a teacher training program structured to make students physically as well as mentally strong, as well as spiritually content. After the successful completion of this course, students can learn the techniques of yoga to such an extent that they can easily teach the basics of yoga, the primary series of Ashtanga and Hatha yoga.
