About Rishikesh Yoga School Ashram

Mantra Yoga & Meditation is an RYS 200, Yoga Alliance-accredited traditional yoga and meditation center in Rishikesh, India, with an additional office in Canada. Founded in 2016, we are built around the concept of imparting ancient Vedic wisdom to all those who wish to learn more about what yoga and meditation can bring. It is the first school which offers a combined yoga and meditation teacher training program in Rishikesh, so what you learn from us could help you start a whole new career!

Our Founder: Sarvottam Kumar Pathak is a Yogi & Meditation Master, who founded Rishikesh Vinyasa Yoga School to pass his knowledge on to others. He is the senior director of marketing and a spiritual meditation instructor at the school, and is also a founding member of Meditation School Rishikesh – Shree Mahesh Heritage. His spiritual journey towards founding our centre began in 2006, when he first became involved in the Art of Living Foundation. Sarvottam holds a Business Management degree, and is a computer engineer by profession. His keen desire for intuitive knowledge drew him towards yoga and meditation. After continuously experiencing and sharing his Yogic knowledge of the wellness world, he began teaching in 2014, and continues to share his knowledge with disciples worldwide. He is from a Brahmin background, so spirituality is an integral part of his heritage. He has a keen interest and knowledge in Hatha yoga and the spiritual Indian Vedic philosophy.

Our Mission – Mantra Yoga & Meditation is dedicated to:

  1. Helping take yoga and meditation back to their ancient, traditional roots.
  2. Realigning yoga teaching to fit within a modern, scientific framework.
  3. Exploring the various applications of yoga in the hectic modern world.
  4. Fulfilling all of the above goals by training spiritual guides and teachers of international stature.

There are thousands of pathways and methods of meditation known to the yogis. In recent years, a few of these have become popular. The Himalayan Traditional preserves the traditions and methodology from which these few are borrowed. It offers training within a comprehensive tradition, wherein all the thousands of methods are seen as a whole in their interconnected sequences of practices. Individuals from all spiritual traditions and all walks of life are welcome to come and participate.
