We offer 200 hour hatha yoga teacher training in rishikesh, India. Hatha Yoga is the oldest form of traditional yoga that was propagated by ancient yogis of yore. Hatha yoga was first taught by Lord Shiva to his consort Goddess Parvati. The Goddess fell asleep and a huge fish carefully heard all that was being said. As God is benevolent to all creatures he blessed that lowly fish with powers to propagate yoga to the world. The lord ordained that the eavesdropping fish be blessed with a robust human form. Matsyendranath Yoga is another name for Hatha yoga. The word ” matsya ” means fish in Sanskrit. Yogi Matsyendranath is the incarnation of that fish who propounded diverse techniques of yoga as ordained by his Guru Lord Shiva.
Matsyendranath’s foremost disciple was the great ascetic Maha Yogi Gorakhanath, He had great mystic powers that he acquired from Hatha Yoga and Tantra Yoga. Hordes of seekers of salvation flocked to Maha Yogi Gorakhanath and his occult powers were reflected through his deep and accurate knowledge of Hatha Yoga and Tantra Yoga. That tradition of Yoga has been faithfully followed through various generations of yogis who have devoted themselves to propagate the austere practices of Hatha Yoga and Tantra Yoga.
