Yoga India Foundation (YIF) is a Yoga Alliance approved and registered yoga and meditation Ashram in Rishikesh, India. It was founded by Swami Yog Kulwant Ji in 2012.
The great Guru spent almost two decades in the Himalayas to practise deep sustained meditation. Swami Yog Kulwant Ji saw many divine visions while living in solitary caves and taking vows of silence. After 18 years of sustained meditation and yogic practise, he came back to Rishikesh to teach what he had learnt and share his insights with others. At first, Swami Yog Kulwant Ji couldn’t teach because the problems of the people who came to him, seemed too insignificant. He tried, but nobody understood him properly. It took some years until he realized that people need to be met at their point along their journey, not his. Swami Yog Kulwant Ji cared about the people and believed they could be transformed. He founded Yoga India Foundation in 2012 to overcome suffering and provide an authentic platform for yoga and meditation.
There are so many distractions at work, interpersonal relationships to manage, mental efforts and pressure from society. Connecting to oneself seems to be impossible sometimes. Swami Yog Kulwant Ji worked with a team of Yogis to develop new meditation techniques that are tuned to the world we live in today and help the individual to feel more balanced and at peace.
The new Yoga India Foundation Ashram was built in 2016 in Tapovan, Rishikesh. Since then it provides the optimum space for an enriching and transformational 200, 300 or 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training.
All Yoga Teacher Training Course Programs at Yoga India Foundation are registered with Yoga Alliance. After course completion, students can register as a RYT 200 or RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance.
