Prakash is born and brought up in a spiritual family in Uttar Pradesh, India. He has been introduced to a spiritual path and yoga at very young age. He started practicing Meditation, Asanas, Pranayama and Prayers from his childhood. On the path he learned Yoga from different institutes and traditions, like Astanga yoga from SVYASA Bangalore and extended courses from Satyananda’s (Bihar School Of Yoga) ,Munger. He has aquired academic qualifications earlier: master of yoga and master in English literatures. Prakash is now guiding Meditation, Yoga, Tantra, mindfullness and Kundalini.
Shakti is a uniquely inspiring and experienced Pranayama, Meditation, Yog-Nidra Teacher and Therapist. She is a Dr. of Naturopathy from School of Naturopathy Gorakhpur, which includes whole naturopathy treatments with diet and therapeutic yoga. She has done extensive courses from Satyanand yoga (BSY Munger) and SVYASA Bangalore, where she got the perfect practical and theoretical knowledge of Asana, Pranayama, Mudra and Bandha. She also learned Yoga Nidra with its therapeutic qualities. Nowadays Shakti is giving sessions of Pranayama, Yog Nidra, Meditation, Diet and counselling.
Hari's approach is to combine yoga in its true essence with the traditional detoxification science of Naturopathy. A large part of Hari Ji’s childhood was spent in serving and taking care of hundreds of sages and sadhus. Being a national level player in his youth, yoga was an essential part of his routine. However, he realized that in present times, the bodies of most people are full of emotional and other kinds of garbage, which hinders one’s growth. This led him to develop “Emotional Blockage” treatments as well as using Naturopathy detoxification.
One would rarely come across someone as humble and pleasant as Girish Ji. Even though he completed graduation in computer science and worked at Infosys (Leading Indian IT company) for about 3 years, he left all of it in his search for truth. He did Sadhana (meditation) at many places like South India, Nepal, Manali etc. A 10 day Vipassana Meditation in Pune changed his life forever. He was always interested in subjects like Anatomy and physiology, which pushed him to go for further studies. He has a degree of N.D.(Doctor of Naturopathy) and Y.D.(Doctor of Yoga).
Manmohan Rupal Ji is teaching Anatomy and Emotional Detoxification Kriyas. He is a double master degree holder in human psychology, a holistic healer and a life coach. Grown up under the parenthood of a naturopath father and Reiki master mother, Manmohan Ji was always inclined towards holistic healing from young age. Along with the fusion of psychological master degrees, Manmohan Ji has specialized himself in exclusive yogic psychotherapy which is proving to be a very effective tool in yoga practices to overcome psychosomatic disorders like depression and anxiety.
Vikas is an accomplished teacher of both Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga with over 8 years experience as a teacher. He is a life long learner of the yogic life style. During the classes you will learn proper adjustment and alignment of the postures and get friendly expert insights to Yoga Philosophy and Ashtanga Yoga. Vikas is hardworking, sincere, dedicated, confident and an enthusiastic person - his charisma and fun nature is infectious!

"June 200hr teacher Training course "
I could not have chosen a better teacher training school! Triguna was so educational, peaceful and eye opening. The Ashram is so quite and full of nature. We saw so many beautiful birds and cute monkeys! The dome at the Ashram made my experience! Practicing yoga and singing mantras in the dome was so transformative and spiritual. The sound the dome creates is pure magic. My entire view of yoga has changed for the better because of the teachers at Triguna. I have now learned that yoga is a way of life rather than just an exercise. The emotional blockage techniques we learned were very intense and transformative as well. Many of us released a lot of emotions we were holding to! I feel like a lighter and more peaceful person. The facilities at the Ashram are very nice and clean. Although the pillows are a little too hard, the bed is very comfortable and supportive. The food is so delicious I had to becareful I didn’t over eat! I made an amazing connection with all of the wonderful people in my sesstion as well. I feel so grateful and thankful I chose Triguna.

"Life Transforming Experience"
My month at Triguna was profound. I came to India with a desire to deepen my asana practice and what I left with was far more. Prakash and Shakti have created a beautiful community that supports the growth of the group of students. The location is peaceful and in nature, the food is delicious, and the curriculum is so rich. Different teachers will teach yoga, anatomy, naturopathy, philosophy, and more. I am so grateful I got to have this experience.

"Life changing experience "
I enjoyed every part of the course, but I particularly found Emotional Blockage, Naturopathy and Philosophy classes inspiring and different from any other TTCs in Rishikesh. Pranayama and Meditation were challenging (especially active meditations!) but I felt great afterwards. Needless to say I learned and improved my flexibility (both physically and mentally) so much thanks to amazing teachers of Asana classes, both Hatha and Ashtanga! Thank you to all the teachers and loving course mates so much for sharing the wonderful experience with me.

"The best yoga school you’ll find"
Triguna Yoga is truly a magical place. Set far enough away from Rishikesh center that you can enjoy nature and the peacefulness of the ashram. The food and accommodation were wonderful, and the people were even more amazing. Everyone who works there is fully devoted to giving you the best experience and pushing you to grow and learn. The emotional blockage course was extremely powerful and the naturopathy was super interesting. I particularly loved the meditations and philosophy classes. Nothing seemed ordinary or stale, everything that we learned was intense and meaningful. You won’t find a place better than this.

I like the wole journey of the course, it was so well planned and it has changed my life. The new path that you walk out in when you leave Triguna, Dyhan Mandir it’s mindblowing. When I look back with love and gratitude in my heart I realize how much knowledge and time the teachers/masters had laid on the schedule so that our experience hit every part of the body and mind at the right time. “From self love to universal love” Namsate, Malinji

Great location aside from the city, peacful atmosphere, which help to connect within, while very easy to get to the city too if needed.
Amazing cook! Delicious fresh Indian style food ❤

"A divine experience!"
I have joined for the course hoping to improve my health and thus impart the knowledge to others. But this particular yoga teacher training course was more of a divine experience to me. I could feel the real bliss of the union of mind,body and soul while learning the same. The first thing that delighted me at the center was the ever helpful people and their hospitality , I am so much indebted to them for the love and care they have shown to me. Ambience of the center is spectacular and enveloped in positive energy. The pure delicious food is definitely very inviting and a real feast to the taste buds. Teachers are really professional,helping and blessed with pure wisdom. This is a place that I can recommend to anyone who is interested in learning yoga in a beautiful ambience - really a divine exoerience and I feel so blessed to have it.

"A great yoga teacher training and so much more!"
Great yoga training! I just finished the february TTC. I loved going deeper into yoga practice and it's meaning and effects on body and mind. Amazing support and guidance from the teachers when I needed that. What I loved the most were the breathing techniques and the detox techniques especially releasing the emotional holdings in the body through pressure points and breathing. That was so powerful for me that I want to share it with students, friends and family. I also feel I got a better understanding about balance and disbalance in the body, how to prevent disease, how to change disbalanced patterns in mind and body. And how to use food and insights on food intolerances, which was very helpful for me

All the facilities and services offered in the location exceeded my expectations. I was very warmly welcomed and treated upon arrival, and my teachers had passed on very authentic and grounded wisdom that will pave my steady path in Yoga. I will definitely consider a visit sometime soon and hope to learn more from my gracious teachers.

"Amazing experience "
I had a great time in the training. We had a very strong group of people and lots of fun and friendships. The emotional blockage therapy was very powerful for me. I felt so much lighter afterwards. I enjoyed the teachings of Yoga a lot. We learned so much in a month. The alignment classes were very helpful for my yoga practice. Also the food was amazing and I m happy at the end we got the chance to learn how to make some Indian veggie food. Great experience.

"Best experience ever ! Feel so grateful"
Acabo de pasar el mes de mayo en Triguna Yoga para hacer el 200h Teacher Training. Sin duda, ha sido la mejor experiencia de mi vida. Sinceramente no tengo ningun comentario negativo, ha sido un mes muy intenso fisicamente, psicologicamente, pero no cambiaría nada. Los profesores son todos buenísimos, el de hatha, ashtanga, pranayama, anatomía, filosofía del yoga, naturopatía, bloqueos emocionales, mantra.. a parte de ser expertos en lo que enseñan cada uno te transmite paz y amor. Eramos un grupo de 12 personas de todo el mundo, y cada uno encontro su sitio muy rapidamente, hemos compartido mucho. El Ashram es uno dos los unicos que se encuentra un poco alejado de la ciudad, con lo cual estas totalmente conectado con la naturaleza, y la cupula en la que hacíamos yoga es para mi el sitio mas bonito y pacifico que he visto en Rishikesh. Las habitaciones son muy grandes, muy agradables y cada una tiene su propio baño. La comida es vegetariana, variada, buenísima, es imposible pasar ambre... El cocinero es tan amable y dedicado a lo que hace... pasa horas cocinando para ofrecer comida de calidad y fresca. Cada semana tienes 1,5 días de descanso y puedes ir a visitar el centro, comprar cositas, tomar un zumo fresco... Rishikesh me ha parecido un lugar muy seguro, no tuvimos ningun tipo de problemas en ningun momento. Podría estar escribiendo durante horas sobre esta experiencia... si buscas un lugar donde recargar tus baterías y abrirte a un nuevo mundo mas conectado contigo mism

I feel like a whole new world has opened up to me because of the teachings and what I experienced this month. It was so much more then a teacher training. I m so happy my path crossed with all these amazing people, the teachers and other students

"Best experience of my life!"
This was the best investment I have ever made in myself and a truly life-changing experience.
I arrived at the retreat at different person to the one that left. I was going through a lot of stress and unhappiness in my life and this was the perfect answer to what I needed to do.
The difference in my emotional well being has been profound. The emotional blockage treatments seem like miracles and were such a relief for me - you feel so much lighter after these. But also having the time to decompress and relax your mind, and nourish it, really helps.
The spiritual side that I witnessed in part through the amazing environment and people but also through the meditation was really spectacular. They were very profound experiences that I will not forget and it’s the beginning of seeing the world differently.
The physical detox has left me lighter, much slimmer and also feeling like my body is in much better shape and clear of so many toxins. Also practical tips about how to continue this - no app or subscription required!
This is the best trip I have ever taken and I will definitely return and invest this time in myself again and visit wonderful India again.
Finally, I have made real friendships here and that is a testament to the whole experience.
