After more than a decade of regular practice of yoga, what’s keeping in the longing for improvements of the hope for ultimately unlocking the secret to what practicing yoga will yield. If expecting a different result for doing the same things again and again is lunacy, then yoga has taught me to keep on going anyhow. The stress of working in the office has frustrated me, I want some relief from this chaotic life. I took a leave for few days and plan a rejuvenating tour to refresh my self, I decided to visit Rishikesh, the gateway to the land of lords, as I heard lot from my friends about this beautiful city. I planned to visit here on Thursday morning by my car.
On Thursday morning at 11 “o” clock I reached to my destination Rishikesh, I had never visited this city before and i was very excited and happy. Rishikesh is one of the most famous pilgrimage place in India, it has the perfect mixture of nature and lifestyle needed to learn & practice yoga, since thousands of years yoga and meditation are being practiced here. Popularly known as the “World Capital of Yoga” it is also well known for its beautiful location in the Himalayan valley, as this city is famous for yoga, I decided to expereince the practices of yoga, I searched for the best ashram or institution which teaches yoga and offer various facilities and services to the learners, as it has lot of ashrams and yoga teachers training schools where people can learn yoga for their own physical & spiritual development or to do professional cources of teacher training in Rishikesh.
I found many ashram, institution in the city that teaches yoga and offer various programs and cource of YTT In Rishikesh. Out of those I found spirit yoga foundation a best institution for learning and practicing yoga. I went to the organization and filled the registration form and get myself registered for learning different yoga cources.
