Our Philosophy

We help you to delve deep into the traditional science of yoga, based on the teachings of Bhagavad Gita, Srimad Bhagavatam and the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali. The teachings are very universal, non-sectarian and applicable to everyone in today’s modern world. Our essential aim is to rekindle the dormant spirit of love and service, and cultivating these qualities is part of the path of Bhakti Yoga – foundation of our philosophy and the culmination of all yoga practices. Yoga means to connect, and through this gradual process anyone can experience sublime joy and fulfilment in their lives and find a sense of connection we’re all ultimately seeking for.

Our Purpose

We are sharing the wisdom and techniques from the ancient Vedic scriptures with a modern understanding. Our approach is holistic, and our aim is to encourage people to apply the teachings in their everyday lives, leading to harmony and discovering divinity within and in others. Yoga means to come to a state of balance and harmony; with our body, mind and soul. Our down-to-earth teachers are here to guide you through the process with compassion and discipline, using practical tools and facilitating space for transformation and connection.

In Bhakti Yoga Rishikesh, our emphasis is in taking care of the needs of the often neglected, yet the most important part of our being, the soul. In the Bhagavad Gita the path of yoga is described as a ladder, leading towards the highest rung called Bhakti Yoga. Our emphasis is on the highest rung in form of philosophy, practice of kirtan and chanting and in developing a mood of being of help and service. But we see the process of purifying the body and the mind and harmonizing the flow of prana with the physical practices as very important for a balanced outcome and nourishing spiritual life. Through this process we can eventually develop taste for things of Higher spiritual value, bringing us closer to the original goal of yoga.

“Every living being has a body, a mind and a consciousness. To harmonize the body, the mind and the soul is the art of yoga.“ 
Radhanath Swami
