Yoga Unites Body, Mind, and Intellect

Yoga teacher training centers in Rishikesh impart physical and mental health

Rishikesh, India -- (SBWire) -- 09/16/2013 --India is known more for its rich culture and profound philosophy and is the natural and ultimate destination of a seeker of higher and more sublime values.

It is rather hazardous to give a water tight definition for Yoga. Yoga is a Sanskrit word that can be translated as ‘unite’. The much deeper, philosophical interpretations are many and volumes have been written about it of which the famous work by the ancient sage Patanjali is considered to be seminal. Yoga, as it is now commonly understood, is a disciplined and well laid out plan to achieve a specific object which is ‘liberation’. What constitutes it is a highly speculative subject and depends on the spiritual and religious temper of the practitioner.

There are hundreds, nay, thousands of centres, Ashrams and other organizations scattered across India and the world, for that matter, that claim to be true propagators and trainers of various forms of yoga of which itself there are countless varieties. The sheer number of these teaching centers with exotic and often misleading names baffles the novice looking for salvation and may even lead him astray. Therefore one has to be extremely careful in selecting the right kind of training center.

Shivayogapeeth in Rishikesh, India is a center of yoga teacher training India and abroad with hundreds of students and trained teachers across the world. The center situated in Rishikesh, the spiritual hub of India, imparts yoga teacher training in Rishikesh in various branches such as Hath Yoga and Ashtaya Yoga.
