Gurukul Yogashala, traditional yoga school in Rishikesh, draws inspiration from the ancient Indian tradition of "Gurukul Pratha." Rooted in the Upanishads, this time-honored system of education has its origins in Vedic times. In the Gurukul system, disciples (shishyas) reside with their teachers (gurus) under the same roof. The term "gurukula" is derived from Sanskrit, where "guru" signifies a teacher or master, and "kula" refers to a family or home. It represents a nurturing environment where students are mentored by knowledgeable gurus in various Vidyas (knowledge) and Kalas (arts). The guru-shishya tradition holds deep significance in the fabric of Sanatan Sanskriti (eternal culture), and echoes in other traditions like Buddhism within India. In contemporary times, the term "gurukul" is also used to denote residential monasteries or yoga schools established by modern gurus.
