At Akshat Yogashala, the theoretical classes of yoga ttc in Rishikesh explains the concept of Panchamahabhutas.


Meaning – All things present on the earth are formed by Panchamahabhutas.

These Panchamahabhutas are Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. These are also the foundational constituents of the body.

The Naturopathy session at Akshat Yogashala during the 200-hour yoga ttc in Rishikesh provides Mud Therapy. It uses moistened earth in the right way to heal the body.


Mantra is the divine accumulation of words, by which we can attain extreme spirituality and destroy negative obstacles. “Man” in Mantra means “Mind” and “Tra” means “Power”.

Mantra Reciting

Reciting the mantra helps the person in getting supreme knowledge and with this, the mind gets calm. With this, one gets free from the bondage of birth and death.

Types of Mantra

There are mainly three types of mantras. These are –

  • Bija Mantra (Root Mantra) – It connects you to the seven chakras of the body and Hindu deities.
  • Saguna Mantra (with form) – It awakens the actual form of a particular type of deity.
  • Nirguna Mantra (without form) – It covers the fundamental truths mentioned in yogic philosophy.

Ayurveda is often integrated into yoga teacher training programs as it provides a holistic approach to health and wellness. Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of medicine that emphasizes the importance of balance and harmony in the body, mind, and spirit.

In a yoga teacher training program that includes Ayurveda, students learn about the basic principles of Ayurveda, including the three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) and how they relate to health and wellness. They also learn about the various Ayurvedic herbs, oils, and treatments that can be used to support overall health and wellbeing.

By integrating Ayurveda into a yoga teacher training program, students gain a deeper understanding of how yoga and Ayurveda complement each other in promoting physical, mental, and spiritual health. They also learn how to incorporate Ayurvedic principles into their yoga teaching, providing a more holistic and personalized approach to their students.

Overall, integrating Ayurveda into a yoga teacher training program enhances the depth and breadth of knowledge and skills that students gain, enabling them to offer a more comprehensive approach to health and wellness through yoga.

Shatkarma is the Sanskrit term for one of the six yogic purification techniques (kriyas) as outlined in the “Hatha Yoga Pradipika.” The purpose of these cleansing techniques is to keep the body strong, clean and healthy. They are said to remove toxins and anything blocking the flow of prana in the body. Practicing Shatkarmas internally purifies the body, which makes pranayama and meditation practice easier by preparing the body to perform these practices without distraction, discomfort or fatigue. This is a traditional yogic cleansing technique which is very effective and good to remove many illnesses and open the body blockages.

These Shatkarma Techniques are –

  • Dhauti
  • Basti
  • Neti
  • Nauli
  • Trataka
  • Kapalbhati
Yoga is not an ancient myth buried in oblivion. It is the most valuable inheritance of the present. It is the essential need of today and the culture of tomorrow.
