Our Expert Gurus

Best Yoga Teachers - Rishikesh, India


Hatha Yoga & Ashtanga Vinyasa

Born in the lap of the holy Ganges, at the foot of the Bhootnath Shiva temple, in the midst of Himalayan forests, Dhirendra ji presents himself as a nature lover and spiritual seeker. Starting from one of the oldest, most prestigious and traditional schools in Rishikesh at the age of 5, Dhirendra believes that a mystical force drew him to yoga while once practicing asana during a fitness class in school. It was and under the able guidance of his guru Narendra Gusain who continued to practice asanas, following a sattvic diet and attend music classes that enabled him to practice yoga religiously. His dedication was such that there were times when he would practice till his body ached, it was at this point that he realized that outward praise and accolades meant nothing and the real meaning of yoga was that you could measure yourself from body, mind and spirit. The next phase of his training was under Guru Nalin Sharma, under whom he studied yoga philosophy and spiritual development and finally under Guru Roshan Singh, Dhirendra received lessons on personal development. When his three gurus thought he was ready, Dhirendra started the yoga school with one goal - to help other practitioners realize their full potential on their yoga journey.

Wow!!! Having completed many courses in my life I left Yogkulam feeling inspired and wanting to learn more. The passion of ancient yogic knowledge oozes from the teachers who with love, respect and dignity hold true to what they believe and what they have been taught. They looked after my inflexible body and on my journey have knowingly or unknowingly taught me to respect and expand on the limitations which I have put on myself throughout my life. The 200Hr TTC is well thought out with great teachings on all levels of the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual aspects of life. Be inspired, feel whole and let go. We create our own walls so when you are ready free yourself. There’s only one place I can recommend in Rishikesh to study yoga and that is Yogkulam. Join the family.

I followed my previous teacher Dee for my 300 hour yoga teacher training course to his new school which he runs with Amit, both exceptional teachers. My knowledge of asana and alignment has improved especially but all the classes were brilliant. The course is intense but well worth it. The food is delicious and cooked with love every single day. The rooms are light, bright, clean and spacious. The teachers took us on excursions around rishikesh on our day off, invited us to an Indian wedding and threw a lovely birthday celebration for one of the girls on the course. My group was small and we had a very special bond with each other by the end. Can’t thank the teachers enough. I highly recommend this school.

General Information:

  • To enhance your yoga practice, we kindly request that you refrain from consuming drugs, smoking, and drinking alcohol during the training.
  • Sundays are your day to relax and rejuvenate! We won't have any lessons scheduled, and there won’t be any meals on Sunday so you can enjoy and explore the cafes around. Additionally, all our excursions will be organized on Sundays, and we'll share the plans with you one day in advance.
  • If you need laundry service, don't worry; we've got you covered! You can get your laundry done at a reasonable price of 20 INR per piece. Simply reach out to our reception for more details, and please remember to pay in cash when you collect your fresh laundry.

  • To stay hydrated, we have filtered water available in the kitchen area, and there's a water dispenser offering hot, cold, and normal water.
  • During the course, we may capture pictures and videos of our school and students. Occasionally, our school photographer might be present during classes. If you prefer not to have your photos taken, please let the admin in charge know during the orientation program.
  • Let's be mindful of our energy consumption! Remember to turn off all electrical appliances, such as fans, lights, heaters, and geysers, when they are not in use.
