We can advise you on safe & tasty places to eat.

Yogamea adopts the ancient approach to yoga to inculcate in each student the wisdom that yoga manifests. Teaching and learning is therefore designed in such a way that ethical practices are ingrained automatically in the students.
The day begins with the daily regimen (Dincharya) and ancient code of conduct. Activities are planned according to seasonal code of conduct (Ritucharya). The concept of behavior chemistry (Achar- rasayan) is the concept that students are expected to imbibe.
Maharishi Patanjali prescribed certain rules of how a person is expected to act in society (Yama) and how personal code and conduct (Niyama) is the expected and essential behavior for individuals to follow. We at the Yog Peeth expect this behavior terminology to be understood and practiced sincerely and honestly by all students to the best extent possible.
Before students register for the yoga teacher training they must be aware that this traditional teaching will differ from that of the west. There could even be a fundamental difference in the understanding of the yogic path as that which is taught in the yoga schools in the west.
Modified exercises that go by the name of yoga are frowned upon by Rishikesh Yog Peeth and so only those students must apply for the course who are willing to commit to the strict regimen of the Peeth.
Discipline is an integral part of the training program and so the course routine must be strictly observed.
Disrespect to rules and regulations could result in termination of studentship with no refund of fee.
Absenting oneself from the scheduled program without prior permission of the teacher or manager concerned would be construed as a gross breach of discipline.
A student must intimate in advance if they intend to forgo a meal so that there is no wastage of food.
The Yoga Peeth does not make arrangements for guests of students. Any activity that is not related to the course is not permitted.
Ensure you are on time for class or you will not be permitted to enter any class once it has commenced.
Before departure from the Peeth students must all dues and return all library books.
Smoking and alcohol are not permitted during the training.
The deposit submitted with the application is not refundable. However, in case of emergencies and other unavoidable exigencies Yogamea at its discretion permits students to go for any other scheduled course/retreat within the period of one year. We therefore recommend that all applicants carefully examine their upcoming obligations so that they may be able to devote their full attention to our yoga programs.
