Where Wisdom Meets Learning

Welcome to Yoga Sadhna India – an initiative that seeks to advance ancient yogic practice through state-of-the-art training.

Who We Are

Any successful relationship is based on trust. You must know us and have faith in our capabilities before our association begins. So, here’s some insight into who we are:

We are a team of hardcore yogis, committed to propagating the 10,000-years-old meditative culture germane to our society. We are passionately invested in practicing and teaching hatha, asthanga vinyasa and other challenging forms of yoga.

YSI is an exclusive yoga teacher training school that operates out of the peaceful township of Rishikesh, India. Founded and managed by an Indian woman, this is the only school across India to impart specialized training to those wanting to pursue yoga professionally.

Admittedly, we are a young organization. We have been in operation for just 2 years, but our wisdom is older than the proverbial elephant. We may be the tortoise in the hare-and-tortoise-tale, but our methodologies are refined and sophisticated, guided by a deep understanding of what we teach.

We are registered with the Yoga Alliance of USA, which assures you the highest standard of certification. By engaging with us, you will be earning a badge of honor and proficinety that is recognized worldwide, which will allow you to set up practice anywhere across the globe.

But this is just a statement of our credentials. What we do at YSI is more than just awarding you qualifications to be able to teach yoga. While experiencing our yogashala firsthand is perhaps the best way to understand our work, we’ll tell you a bit more about what we do.

What We Do

Yoga is not a static body of knowledge that is easily learnt. It is a lifestyle philosophy that invigorates the mind, body and soul through concerted effort on an individual’s part. We bridge the gap between your personal engagement with yogic practice and ability to teach it professionally.

We use proven scientific methods to facilitate targeted learning. Combining the power of digital media and interactive collaborative tools, our modules not just further your capabilities, but measure your progress too.

Our system of training is based on the principle of gradually intensifying challenges that teach and test you at the same time. Initially, we handle you with kid gloves and then encourage you to examine your own potential, albeit at your own pace.

We are proud to report a 99% success rate on our trainee satisfaction meter. In helping you see through goals of self-improvement, we measure not yours but our own success as well. Our achievements rest upon the authenticity and inventiveness of our training techniques.

We equip you with both technical knowledge and real-times experience in yogic practice. This prepares you to fare well in the industry alongside broadening your personal horizons.

Having said that, we realize that in coming to us, you are literally crossing seas and mountains to reach us at Rishikesh for four weeks. You trust us for that. For your trust and confidence in us –

What to Expect

At YSI, we uphold the cultural standards established by our blessed ancestors. You are not just our clients, but our guests too. And in a society where atithi devo bhava, guests are showered with attention fit for divinity.

You get care,like a mother does. We want the best for you, safety, food, warmth, and focus upon providing a peaceful environment which perfectly complements the kind of training we provide.

Our yogashala is safe and well-guarded, with adequate facilities to keep you satisfied. We offer clean rooms with ashram comforts, hygienic meals prepared with local produce and hospitality tempered with love and nutrition.

Your transition is easy with our assistance from the time you cross the customs and immigration in India at airport till you reach to us. So we try and do everything within our means to make your arrival easy.

Finally, we promise that you’ll benefit from the Three R’s that our institution reveres – Relaxation, Rejuvenation and Reformation.

We guarantee that your four weeks at YSI will be a highly stimulating experience.

Therefore, if you are looking to secure a wholesome education in yoga training, YSI is the place for you. It is a one-stop shala for all your yogic needs. Become a part of the YSI family and we will give you no opportunity to regret your decision.
