Jeevmoksha yoga gurukul is a premier institute of yoga in Rishikesh. Located in the Himalayan foothills of the Shivalik Range, Jeevmoksha is a serene and calm study point where students can indulge in a spiritual affair with themselves taking time out of the pace of modern life and taking time to look deep within themselves. The surroundings are rich in nature with lots of green, providing enough oxygen to meet the needs of the body and enough Pran to meet the demands of energy. Jeevmoksha works along the lines of traditional yoga while paying equal attention to contemporary lifestyles and conditions. Our yoga classes are a fine blend of physical, energetic and mental techniques to carve out a complete set of practices for being as a whole. Gurukul offers intensive yoga teacher training courses, enabling students to develop their own scales of self practice and development. Gurukul operates in an ashram environment which includes a dedicated space for yoga teacher training in Rishikesh itself and giving a wide range of knowledge on ancient systems of self healing and well being. Yoga, Ayurveda, Nature cure and other systems of actual health are combined in our education programs so that more and more people can understand and share them in their own communities.
