It guides to balance and harmonize sun and moon, which are the two main energies in the body. Its practice purifies and awakens the Pranic energy, which manipulates the energy fields and strengthens the body. As a result, it improves flexibility, builds muscles, corrects posture and strengthens joint mobility. Though the most widely practiced style in the world today, Hatha started out with only 35 asanas (as given in the documented written history). It dates back at least 5000 years back and promises for a healthy body and purity of mind. Some mistake it as a religious practice, which it is not. It only adds to yoga, which means union of mind, body and spirit. If you are a beginner, this style of Yoga is highly recommended to get solid base for your future practice and development.

    "My experience at Yoga Sadhna India was wonderful. Me and my husband attended this course, and the experience was wonderful. The knowledge we got here, we didnt get anywhere else. We want to start our journey of yoga from here. It was a great time to understand true meaning of Yoga. It opened the mind to what is real. We understand that yoga is not to stand on your head but to get it in to our head. Food was great. Thanks for the chef. We are fortunate to have the real knowledge here. We are very thankful to Sadhna and Acharya Kapil for a great experience. We have moved around a lot and around a lot of teachers because we ourselves are teachers. It was important for us to have a good teaching leadership and experience and knowledge. We are thankful for our this journey into yoga."

    "My experience at Yog Sadhna India in Rishikesh was everything I had hoped for in a retreat. I was looking for a program that offered both yoga and meditation together. YSI offers a combination of yoga poses, meditation, pranayama breathing, chanting, and learning about yogic philosophy and history. I found this range of activities very educational and fulfilling. Also, I was looking for somewhere that was not a bare bones ashram but also not a cushy spa. YSI's retreat falls nicely in-between. My highest praise goes to the personal attention given by Sadhna and Kapil. They have made the curriculum flexible so that they can tailor it to the students in attendance. They were also very helpful with excursions and sightseeing in and around Rishikesh, as well as with any logistical arrangements I needed. We were well-fed with vegetarian meals, and the six day retreat passed all too quickly. In short, I would highly recommend Yog Sadhna India to anyone looking for a balanced retreat experience, knowledgeable instructors, and a personal touch. Namaste." website, edited

  • Review by Juliana from US

    "My four weeks teacher training at Rishikesh with Yog Sadhna India passed by so quickly. With the team of teachers who taught us vigorously, everything was kept at a great pace. The program was intense. The knowledge was given in an organized fashion. What I liked specifically is that they not only taught us about yoga; they taught us how to be good yoga teachers. I learned details and interesting facts of yogic life. My learning curve went through a steep curve. The food was delicious, and the rooms were comfortable. I highly recommend this school to everybody, but be ready to work hard."

    "If you still cant decide which yoga school is best for you in Rishikesh, then I would definitely recommend Yog Sadhna India, which provides authentic education of yoga and trains you as a professional teacher. My experience there was very satisfying. I am very happy that I chose them. The anatomy subject by Yogini Sadhna made all the difference in my insight to approaching poses, and it still does now when Im teaching my students. Thank you Yog Sadhna India, the food was delicious and the accommodation very comfortable. I give them 5 out of 5."
