Rishikesh Yoga Foundation offers immersion Retreats, as well as short and long term courses for the study of Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda Therapy. Our Yoga Teacher Training courses and retreats use traditional “Hatha” scriptures and reference, but are integrated with elements from many different styles of yoga.


Laura Tremblay


Laura studied Economics at New York University, where she understood the critical need for spiritual transformation of the global marketplace.

Laura came to Rishikesh in 2016 to further her yoga and meditation practice. Her economics degree and work in the urban economic development through sustainable permaculture farming and land stewardship projects fuel her passion to create a school where Yoga is for Everyone.

Our business design and pricing schemes are built to engage as wide an audience as possible, regardless of students’ financial status. We acknowledge the dangerous, divisive reality of global economic inequality, and have created RYF Trust to keep community funds in the community, investing and reinvesting for the growth of Yoga for Everyone, increasing the world’s understanding and practice of yogic lifestyle.

In coming years and decades, we plan to establish many safe, sacred spaces for students and seekers to enjoy: public ashrams, library, gardens and farms, for starters.

Yes, we are happy to register your certificate with the USA Yoga Alliance brand at the Alliance’s price of $200 per certificate as per your request. Our courses are certified with AUYS Ministry of India, Department of Yoga and Ayurveda, and we are working to establish an India Yoga Alliance. It is our understanding that USA YA Certification is just an added cost to you, because many studios and yoga communities who “require” YA Certification will work with you on the basis of your skill and knowledge.
