I often get asked about Yoga in India and above all Rishikesh. Rishikesh is an amazing holy town on the Ganges with many different yoga teachers and ashrams, some requiring advance booking or long term commitment. Like the path of yoga, Rishikesh can be a confusing place, so why not begin your search with the teacher I went to about ten years ago, who is still highly recommended by many yogis now. His name is Surinder Singh and he teaches traditional hatha yoga in a style accessible to beginners and also satisfying for advanced students. He is an inspiring and confidence building teacher.
My latest update is that he teaches drop in classes every day in Rishikesh (except on Sundays) from 08.00 to 10.00 in Hotel Rajdeep, and from 17.00 to 19.00 in Hotel Raj Palace. The price is 150 rps.
