  • location Gita Ashram, Near Taxi Stand, Ramjhula, Swarg Ashram, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand 249304, India

India Yoga Teacher Training Program

Iyengar Yoga was developed by B. K. S. Iyengar. It is a form of Hatha yoga and emphasizes on detail, precision, and alignment in the performance of postures (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The practice helps you to develop strength, mobility, and stability through the asanas. Iyengar yoga can be easily enjoyed without several years of practice. Props such as cushions, benches, blocks, straps, and sandbags are used frequently allowing beginners to experience asanas more easily than might otherwise be possible. They also help injured or ill students to fully enjoy the benefits of the asanas. More advanced students can take their advantage in a better understanding of the asanas through the use of props. There are three unique aspects of Iyengar yoga: technicalities, sequencing, and timing.

Detailed instructions are given to the student so he can learn how to access the body through the outer, skeletal, and muscular body into the subtleties of the mind. Often during the classes, you will find yourself moving from simple poses to more complex ones, developing an understanding of the mind, body, and spirit through a step-by-step approach.


Refers to the order in which the asanas and pranayama are practiced. Each asana has different effects on the mind and proper sequencing prepares and cultures the mind, to make it conducive to your yoga practice.


Asanas can be held for different time lengths to enable a more profound exploration of the physical and mental challenges of the pose. It takes time to move into a posture and become stable. Remaining stable in a posture for longer time periods intensifies the depth of the posture and increases the benefits.

Yogi Sunil (Suryans)

Yogi Sunil (Suryans) Thakur

I, Yogi Suryans Thakur, founded Om Yoga Rishikesh, a place where you truly discover yourself and learn the very essence of yoga and its powers. To begin my never ending journey of yoga I started by practicing Sivananda yoga at the Sivananda ashram in Kerala, where I studied various arts of yoga and the discovered the art of losing oneself to nature's wisdom. While practicing at the Sadanand ashram I acquired the art of Iyengar yoga under the blessings of senior teachers in Rishikesh and Pune, where I return every year to deepen my knowledge of yoga.
