What is an authentic Yoga school or traditional Yoga school? Authenticity comes from the traditional Yoga teachings which have been tested and proven by thousands of Yogis. We believe Shiva is the founder of Yoga and Tantra, and he taught his wife all of the secrets of Yoga.

Later on it was expanded, and many Yogis wrote scriptures based on their experience like Patanjali, Sage Vashista, Kapila, Swatmarama, Gheranda Muni etc.. In the last 100 years there have been great Masters who preach Yoga in an authentic manner like Swami Vivekananda, Swami Rama, Swami Shivananda and so on.

Vinyasa is a tantric word which means “establishment of consciousness”. Especially in Hindu rituals, the word Vinyasa is mostly used to describe a control of the mind and senses. Now most people understand Vinyasa to mean Flow Yoga with specific breathing and mindfulness patterns. A group of teachers also developed this Vinyasa Yoga style like T. Krishnamacharya, K.Pattabhi Jois, and B.K.S Iyengar. We follow these traditions in our teachings.

Students have big expectations from the best Yoga school in Rishikesh. We carry this responsibility and are committed to offering the best Yoga Teacher Training Course in Rishikesh. We are busy 24 hours a day in the service of Yoga.

Tradition We Follow

Traditional Vinyasa Yoga school in India

Tradition of Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa is a very ancient name which is used in the vedic and yogic scriptures. It has two words Vi and Nyasa. Vi means specially and Nyasa means establishment. So Vinyasa means specially establishing the mind somewhere. It is all about controlling the mind. Basically Vinyasa yoga does not follow a clear lineage, hierarchy or leading guru. VInyasa Yoga is a modern style of yoga, born out of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition. The Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition, in turn, is based on the teachings of Sri Krishnamacharya. Krishnamacharya taught that the movements between each asana should be considered just as important as the postures themselves. His idea behind this was to deepen concentration and body consciousness throughout the entire practice. Rather than focusing on “getting into the posture” and then breathing, in Vinyasa Yoga, the aim is to keep the deep breathing and body consciousness consistent throughout all movements during the practice.

Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya

Krishnamacharya is considered to be the grandfather of modern yoga. He traveled to the Himalayas in 1916 to learn yoga. There, he met his guru, Sri Ramamohan Brahmachari, and spent seven-and-a-half years with him. During this time he studied the Ashtanga (Raja) Yoga system, also known as the Eight Limbs of Yoga. In 1933 he began teaching yoga in Mysore, India, and later in Madras, India, for many Indian and Western students. In addition to Pattabhi Jois, his best-known students include Indra Devi, BKS Iyengar and his son, TKV Desikachar.

What Vinyasa Yoga Academy's Students Says

Life changing experience! I have traveled the world over my 58 years on this earth and never experienced this deep, thought provoking guidance. I just wanted to improve my yoga practice. I came knowing NOTHING but I wanted to do correct poses. As I stated, I am 58 years young and only tried yoga a year ago with DVDs and you tube. I recommend this specific school because their is something amazing going on here up in the lush beautiful green hills of Rishikesh, India. Your mind is the only thing holding you back. I found Vinyasa Yoga Academy online while searching for schools. I was drawn to this school and a year later was blessed to come learn not only physical yoga but SO MUCH MORE. I believe, never in the states could I have had this experience for 1/3 the cost AND included room and board and the best weekly outings on our day off.
