Sattvic Food for Every Yoga Aspirant

Meals of a yogic diet have been served at the Gurukul Yogashala in Rishikesh. Getting started with yoga is easier with the help of our gluten-free, yogic diet. The meal, together with the detox tea and juices, contains a good balance of nutrients such as vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, calcium, and other minerals. We believe that Meditation loses its efficacy when consumed alongside unhealthy eating. Meditation is unnecessary when the diet is healthy. What we eat has a significant impact on our ability to meditate and practice yoga.

Gurukul Yogashala is located in the Holy City of Rishikesh in the foothills of Mighty Himalayas near the Ganga River. Rishikesh is the home to various rishis and yogis who have come to start their spiritual journey of ultimate liberation to connect with supreme conscious.

PREREQUISITES of Gurukul Yogashala

Dedication and self-motivation are essential for the success of our course. The practice and teaching of yoga require a profound level of self-discipline and purity. To uphold the integrity of the program, participants must actively participate in all spiritual activities, meditation sessions, lectures, and asana classes.

In alignment with the principles of yoga, certain lifestyle choices are prohibited during the course.

Participants who fail to adhere to these guidelines may be dismissed from the course to maintain the sanctity of the learning environment.

Nudity is strictly prohibited.


An advance payment of course fees is non-refundable, except in cases of emergencies where students can reschedule to join us on other available schedules.

We encourage students to carefully consider their commitment to the course before making any payments.
