Raj Yoga Rishikesh offers intensive, residential yoga courses in hatha, ashtanga and Iyengar yoga. We believe everyone should have access to a healthy body and quiet mind, so we make our courses affordable for everyone.
We are registered with Yoga Alliance (RYS) to conduct the 200hr Teacher Training Course which is an intensive and transformative route to yoga teaching. Our courses are led by gifted and experienced yoga teachers and include accommodation plus all your healthy, vegetarian yogic meals.
For beginners and advanced practitioners, Raj Yoga Rishikesh also offers residential yoga retreats so you can learn the basics of yoga or deepen your personal practice.
We also welcome guests to our drop-in yoga classes, held in the morning and afternoon, to which everyone is welcome to join.
What is Yoga?
To us, yoga is not just a physical practice, although it can reap amazing health and wellness benefits, it is a way to unite your individual soul with the collective divine by balancing the energies within and without.
The teachings of yogic science have been sacred to India for many millennia, and we aim to keep these traditional methods alive through our yoga teacher training courses and retreats.
Amongst the proven benefits of yoga are better flexibility (of body and mind!), improved fitness, stress reduction, mental clarity and an overall mind-body-soul wellness. It’s little wonder why yoga has become so popular in the west!

Raj Yoga Rishikesh is registered with Yoga Alliance, the leading organisation for yoga teachers based in the US. The National Yoga Teacher’s Registry ensures that teachers are eligible to meet certain standards within yoga like safety, right conduct and a deep understanding of the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga teaching.
Why Rishikesh? Why Raj Resort?
Rishikesh is known as ’The Capital of Yoga’ what better place to study this ancient practice than this holy Indian place? Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, in the beautiful state of Uttarakhand, Rishikesh is one of India’s most popular pilgrimage sites and has its own special magic interwoven in the myriad of ashrams, temples, meditation centres and yoga schools.
Raj Yoga Rishikesh is situated on the grounds of Raj Resort and uses many of the same facilities. Our accommodation is situated in relaxing organic gardens, offering the perfect place to deepen your meditation practice or study amongst the flowers and birds.
Our yoga student accommodation is situated right next to a bubbling stream that leads to the holy River Ganges, overlooking trees and the mountains beyond. Each day, students eat 3x healthy yogic meals, specially created by our onsite chefs using organic plant-based ingredients from our gardens.
During your 25-day course, lessons take place in our bright and spacious yoga shala with windows that look onto the foothills of the Himalayas, giving you the perfect view for inner peace whilst practicing yoga.
On your days off, we arrange special outings like rafting, exploring the city or trips to temples. You are also free to explore the area of Tapovan, Laxman Jhula or around Rishikesh for colourful bazaars, natural beauty and all manner of spiritual services.
