Yoga Teacher Training History- Rishikesh Yog Darshan (RYD) is blessed to be located on the holy land of Rishikesh, the home of “GANGES” and the abode of the divine “Lord of the Senses.” This province is also well known as 'Devabhoomi', region of gods and we at RYD are honored to welcome the divine within you.
Rishikesh is called by its nickname "The world capital of Yoga." RYD’s attempt is to humbly share this ancient knowledge and practice of YOGA with every seeker in an exquisitely perfect and relaxed environment for the highest growth of each participant.
RYD is in the city yet away from it, well connected to the main areas yet cocooned in a private setting to impart the teachings without any disturbance or outside interference, respecting the personal space of every participant.
The Academy is a quaint area surrounded by abundant greens with the Ganges flowing very close by, scenic mountains and distinct aromas fill the air to heighten all your senses.
Rishikesh Yog Darshan was established in 2014 by Yogacharya Uttam; Center is an all-encompassing blend of the ancient knowledge integrated with the modern ways of learning.
We are here to empower and esteem your excursion toward personal growth and well-being. Our programs remain credible to pristine yoga tradition while tackling common challenges. No matter your age or fitness scale, we propose yoga that will work for you.
Our first studio opened its doors in Rishikesh, India in 2015. Co-founders Yogacharya Uttam and John Doe worked tirelessly to fabricate a safe and welcoming space for all yoga students to practice yoga with world class teachers. We have since grown into a burgeoning Bay Area business with two studios, workshops and a robust teacher training center with offerings from top teachers around the world.
Admitting we embrace diverse yoga styles, each of our classes shares a common theme and transcendence in teaching that has espoused RYD as the platinum standard of yoga studios. Our teachers must complete a minimum of 500 hours of YogaAlliance certification, and many of our experienced teachers have intermix their craft for at least twenty years.
We take pride in our specific yoga programs, available for beginning yoga students, children, and people in need of rehabilitation. These classes feature our trademark RYD approach of safe, compassionate and skillful teaching.
