In the natural scenic landscapes of Rishikesh, India is located an international standard yoga education center popularly known as Siddha Yoga Peeth (SYP). It is a yoga learning and training school. In the year 2012, this center was established with a vision and passion for conducting yoga and meditation workshops/ courses/ retreat about the ancient knowledge of yoga and meditation based on Vedic philosophy of India.
The school emphasis on the health benefits of yoga practice and additionally dedicated to bring out the hidden potential of every student so as to transform their life completely.
We believe in the philosophy that every human has immense potential as a soul for which we help them to bring out their hidden potential while practicing the deep meditation at SYP using the ancient techniques of siddha path (The perfect Yogi/ Spiritual Masters/ Saints).
Over the due course of time and some rigorous research, we have evolved and reestablished the hidden and not much discovered secrets of this mysterious land , the roots of this skill is grounded deep in the times of invention of Yoga philosophy of Indian culture which were almost forgotten and were gradually vanishing away from the modern humans.
The ultimate aim of Siddha Yoga Peeth is the three dimensional health benefit of its pupil that is – physical, mental and spiritual .
This education center is widely spread on the holy banks of river Ganga, that holds a very sacred position in the beliefs of Indians, next to the famous land mark Lakshman Jhoola in a small consecrated city of Rishikesh in Northern India. This pilgrimage site has a great foot fall of pilgrims for across the globe seeking physical, spiritual and mental peace, this whole patch is known for its religious and spiritual practices by the great saints and sages around in different ashrams, and other spiritual centers.
In the recent times though yoga has been very popular among both masses and classes, but somehow its genuineness is not the same what it was supposed to be because of its simplest adaptation matching to our daily needs. As adapted by different instructors, who trim and twist not only the names of the asanas but also their performance in order, to add their own personal touch to the original forms. There are still a few genuine cohorts of the original Yoga trends, and most of them have acquired their knowledge from the universities of India.
The actual Yoga forms which are narrated in the Sanskrit manuscripts and textbooks can be gained by training and practice. Most of the teachers that we have around usually picked their styles from the one common base but get glamorized once they are exposed to the big world, but despite of the fact the base is the same. The idea behind the foundation of SYP was to introduce yoga smoothly and bring expertise to those who have an acceptance to the original form of it.
SYP is one of its own types and has no sister concerned or tie up with any other organizations with similar names .
