Rishikesh YogPeeth
Who We Are

By Roshan Singh

We are a group of curious and enthusiastic people, interested in creating better environment inside and outside for us and also for those, interested in the same. As a group having an experience of running a Yoga School called Rishikesh Yog Peeth in India, since 2005 with more than hundred Yoga Teacher Training courses and thousands of participants from all over the world.In this experiential journey, We have reached a point where the application of Yoga in mundane life is not just the necessity but the next step. Teaching yoga just inside the Yoga hall bores us now and the idea is to take Yoga out of the Yoga hall and put it all over, in each and every sphere of life.

Year 2016

How It Started

After reaching a particular point in life, there is a tendency to ask a question "What Next?" I think Rishikesh Yog Peeth has reached to it, where this question is progressively prominent. So the answer for Rishikesh Yog Peeth is,Abhayaranya (fearless self expression).

Year 2003

First and the Most Important step

After sometime we realized that we couldn't get the support of each other because both of us were empty and powerless. So instead of trying to get the support of each other, we started supporting each other. This was the only option left and gradually success started. Without knowing any thing about Yoga, we went on practicing it, not as Asana, Pranayama or Meditation rather as a process of unification of two personalities. Loopholes of mines were filled by Digamber's abilities and vice versa. It appeared that we are born to complete each other, as the pieces of a puzzle.

Year 2005

Life as a School and Circumstances as Teachers

Circumstantial reasons brought Rishikesh Yog Peeth into the existence: the biggest reason was the quest of financial stability. Ultimately our quest led us to Yoga. In 2005 Yoga TTC was at its early footprints in Rishikesh and we were one of the few to initiate it. We registered the school under Society Act of India, created a website and started the promotional activities. Knowing nothing about the future, just the leap of faith and innate desire to move, was a leading force.

Year 2007

Initiation of Self-confidence

The instability of Yoga Teachers working with us with their ideas to teach abroad led me to hold the fort and stabilize Rishikesh Yog Peeth. Teaching taught me how to learn and vice-versa. Digamber managed the School with the help of Vishal who joined us in 2006 with refreshing attitude. He took the responsibilities quite nicely allowing Digamber to concentrate on management and expansion. It was just the sprout of our abilities and self-confidence.

Year 2008

When it happens,
it just happens.

Things started happening, and finally we saw the glimpse of success with a regular inflow of 4 to 6 participants for each course throughout the year. We were enjoying our financial independence and skills within the group to complement each other. It seemed that we found the balance to walk ahead.

Year 2010

Beginning of the Team

It appeared that we think and it manifest. Our needs were arranged so quickly and smoothly. Rishikesh Yog Peeth collaborated with Mr. Dhiraj Sharma for Promotional activities. Affect of this, first time ever in the month of February 2010, we broke the barrier of Ten and the number of participants reached Eighteen. In April, it was Twenty four and since then it's an ever-increasing phenomenon. Thanks to the Team and those who invented Internet. Regular financial flow and the help of few friends and family members allowed us to buy a piece of land. The idea was to develop an infrastructure to run the biggest Yoga TTC in Rishikesh. Construction started, we were so happy with this so-called success and its utmost feeling.

Year 2013

Successful but not Satisfied

We were beyond our expectations, the idea about the construction grew bigger, days were passing with a regular number of participants reached up to Fifty. But slowly and gradually satisfaction started to fade away: we were successful, many people were trying to follow the same footsteps in Rishikesh, new Schools with the concept of Yoga teacher training courses were opening almost every week but we were thinking of something else, not even aware of what. At this crucial junction of time, Harsh entered into the Team Rishikesh Yog Peeth as a new member.

Year 2015

An Idea for Success and Satisfaction

Finally the seed of manifesting a self-sustained Yoga village came from nowhere and became stronger and clearer by the day. The idea in itself was powerful enough for us to gain our satisfaction back. We were back to the curiosity and enthusiasm in a meaningful manner. It appeared that, we are just the Instruments of Existence with only two options either we allow the existence to flow through us or we won't: allowing the flow makes life an ever happening festivity, not allowing makes it a struggle.

Year 2017

We found the Path of Yoga

These years of experience taught us that our interest is not to run the biggest Yoga Teacher Training Course in Rishikesh, India rather we are more interested in Applied Yoga or Living Yoga, a practice of life and its activities. Developed infrastructure of Rishikesh Yog Peeth for Yoga TTC will be used as Abhayaranya, a Yoga village on Applied Yoga. We are changing our direction exactly at the time when the number of participants in Yoga TTC at Rishikesh Yog Peeth reaches to hundred participants per month and with pre-registrations up to six months. This is fantastic; nature gives us things heavily. Is this an exam or a result, I don't know?

you may be heading in the right direction but If you know nothing about the direction and still moving,
for sure you are heading in the right direction.
