History of Yoga in Rishikesh

The art of yoga is thousands of years old. It has been practiced in ancient India since the Vedic period. The yoga was only practiced by yogis in ancient times as you can guess it from the term YOGI- the one who lives with the disciplines of yoga. The sages used to meditate in Rishikesh in order to get salvation or moksha.

Such continuing wisdom of self-awareness is getting its roots from Samkhya Philosophy of sage Kapila.

With this background of metaphysics of Samkhya, Maharshi Patanjali later developed the Ashtanga Yoga.

Indian yoga norms are the gist of the hard work and the heritage of celebrated masters of the subject. They devoted their life for your practice of Yoga and its programs. Eminent yogis such as Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, T Krishnamacharya, B K S Iyengar along with many others throughout the Nation propagated the analysis of hatha yoga in India.

In older days, Yoga was practiced by yogis in isolated areas that can connect them with nature. This is the reason, Rishikesh has witnessed so many incredible yogis throughout its course of time.

Chandra Yoga International is definitely a place to learn yoga from the roots. I have done my 200 hrs and 300 hrs from there and it was a great experience of my life. It’s easier to feel overwhelmed in India but their entire team is so supportive and friendly to make you feel more than at home. My first visit was in June 2012 (200hrs) in Dharamshala, and the Second visit was Sep 2012 (Internship), the Third visit was in Aug 2013 (300hr) after that i found no reason to leave Chandra Yoga International I got my on Job training with Dr. Sushil for 7 months teaching pranayama and philosophy. My recent visit was in Feb 2015. I spent a month working on our future project and advance study on chakras with Dr. Sushil. Yoga was the cultural thing where I grew up but I got to learn the fundamentals of it with Dr. Sushil’s sacred knowledge of yoga. He started his yoga studies from his childhood until his Master and Ph.D. from pure Yogic environmental school, university, and ashrams. I presently live in Canada running my own company for yoga events my website is I definitely recommend this yoga school to begin your spiritual journey of life. May God keep me connected with Chandra Yoga

First, I would like to say “Thank You” to all staff and teachers. When I was sick here, everyone worried about me, and really helped me, and I appreciate that. It was a good experience for me. It was hard actually, but I got very precious things. All of the things that happened here because of my treasure. I won’t forget about it. It was also hard to take and make the classes in English for me, but friends helped me very much. There are more important things that language. We all learned about yoga every day together. Yoga connected us. Now I live with yoga. Yoga is life. I think everything is yoga. This life taught me, yoga can connect the people. Thank you so much!
