50 Hour Meditation Teacher Training

50 Hour Meditation Teacher Training in Rishikesh India is designed for people who want to concentrate deeper on the meditative aspect of yoga. According to ancient scriptures, yoga is considered not only an asana practice but a union between body and mind. When we say in India “we are practicing yoga” we suppose to do all these – asana, pranayama, mantra, and meditation.

Meditation can not be separated from Asana or pranayama or mantra, why? Because the purpose of meditation as yoga itself – is getting bliss or liberation for the mind. To enter in deeper state of meditation we use pranayama as a tool, we use mantra as a tool and asana as well. Because people are different, everyone can find his suitable tool how to enter in deeper state of meditation. Our classes made by the way that you can try all main tools of yoga and master those practices that leads in your case in deeper state of concentration.

``To be able to meditate you need firstly to master concentration by daily routine practice.`` - Dr. S.K Pandey
