The Answer to this subject is something which is very close to my heart and explains why I chose yoga teacher training to overcome the unwanted emotions I was facing and which were controlling my life, happiness, surrounding below you will know how it changed me from a person who was low in life had no dream, to a person who has a meaning in life and has an aim to achieve.
Rishikesh yoga Nirvana place where it all started, and the name itself explains why to choose this school for the best yoga teacher training in Rishikesh. Rishikesh which is the capital of yoga and Nirvana which describes that this is the place to experience happiness, peace and where you forget all the suffering, pain, and desires. This place brings one close to nature make one realize there is a life that has a true meaning to it, one need not someone else to feel love or some non-living thing to feel loved self-love experience.
I was very excited as I landed to this place and never knew that this place will change my life completely. Rishikesh yoga Nirvana had sent airport pickup as its a part of 200-hour yoga teacher training, so I don’t face any difficulty to reach yoga school as being non-resident and new to the place they made sure that I feel safe and as the drive was for 45 minutes from Dehradun to Rishikesh I had amazing ride where I got to see man things which one needs to experience by themselves. As I reached to the school can’t forget the day, how they welcome one stranger student which you actually don’t get to feel because welcome was warm, invitational, traditional and with Indian culture could feel the environment where people are kind to each other, love, connection and happiness. My first brain break and that too a place I never thought I would be and which will make me choose yoga as my career. So glad I chose this place to get my yoga certification which is approved from yoga alliance USA. Let me give you all details on how my day used to start. the first day, which was the ceremony day where entire school faculty, students and staff get together for opening ceremony called “Havan”. An Indian ritual where offerings are made into the fire with chanting mantras and prayers for the purity which opens chakra and one feels spiritual mentally and physically.
Daily morning routine where we would start our day at 05:30 AM with herbal tea and feel the nature around us followed by eye cleansing and Nose cleansing called Jal Neti. Pranayama was the first-class check “Rishikeshyognirvana” Instagram page to see some major and amazing benefits of Pranayama where it proved one can feel ELEVATION through the continuous and long practice. After pranayama we had vinyasa flow sequence class which was one of my favorite class of the ryt 200, this morning flow sweat class made each one of us ready for the day, as it started with sun salutation warm-up which is the enrage emotion of ankle, wrist, spine and much deeper into it. Followed by delicious Indian vegetarian breakfast. An hour of break after breakfast and we had Anatomy class with very experienced yoga teacher, I am a very big advocate of not fear-mongering, not making people afraid to move or afraid to be in their bodies, a freedom to move, to breathe and try things without fear and this class will encourage one to do that.
