This is a guest blog post by Laura Heggs I recently completed a 300-hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India. The training was packed into a 30-day period, and the days were long and intensive. I learned what every teacher should in a training: alignment, anatomy, and philosophy, as well as a few unexpected things. […]
On the day after my yoga TTC graduation at Rishikesh Yog Peeth, a few of us went to the nearby beach for a photo session, thanks to Suzie from Empower Yoga & Fitness who took all these beautiful shots. P.S. And finally, although I think there’s a place to photograph yoga asanas (this was a […]
After an incredible three months of learning yoga, meeting wonderful people and absorbing myself into life in Rishikesh, I couldn’t have ended my time here in a better way. I feel incredibly grateful to have been able to experience a spontaneous free sound healing session with Tibetan singing bowls after meeting Sanjay Tiwari from Maaya International Healing School and […]
After a such an amazing three months in Rishikesh, India doing a 500 hour yoga teacher training with Rishikesh Yog Peeth, here’s my trip in pictures. Thank you to everyone who shared these memories with me and my teachers at Rishikesh Yog Peeth. I’m so grateful for the opportunity. It’s been an incredible summer.

I’m writing this on my balcony in the holy town of Rishikesh — nicknamed the birthplace of yoga — and feeling excited to start my 500 hour yoga teacher training in a few days at Rishikesh Yog Peeth. Here are some photos of my first full day in Rishikesh.
Although I’ve been to India several times to practise and study yoga, I’ve never done a teacher training over there, which is something I’d love to do in the near future. I’m currently in the process of deciding which training to choose and so thought I’d ask yogi, Devakar Sandhu from the Akshi Yogashala […]
Beside my bed I have a set of prayer beads that I bought when I was in Rishikesh in northern region of India on an environmental project along the Ganges. The beads are called japa mala, and they are meant for meditation. Whenever I look at them it invokes silence, solitude and calm. It sits there […]
Today I’ll be teaching (for free to practise) my first meditation 1-1 Skype session which to tell you the truth, I’m feeling slightly nervous about. For one, despite the fact that I’ve been practising yoga for approximately 10 years and meditation for four, I still feel like there’s a lot I don’t know. Plus, just […]
