The 9 Principles of Practice by Rishikesh yogkulam
Principle 1: Morality
Rely on us when we say that we bring the yogic science to you unaltered from the literature. We consider yoga to be a privilege to humanity. It is a matter of high regard for us to keep the integrity of Yoga intact and perform every task, be it howsoever small with equal respect and honor.
Principle 2: Community
We welcome everyone with arms wide open. Our bonding with students is not just limited to classes and so a person who has been associated with us anytime, becomes an inseparable part of the Yogkulam community. Along with Yoga, we thoroughly enjoy conducting social events to celebrate music, literature, laughter and more.
Principle 3: Leadership
We believe in being ideal leaders to all our students and to the yoga community worldwide by letting our work speak for us. As we strive to be role models to others, we also induce the qualities of leadership in our students as it is through them that our teachings are reflected worldwide.
Principle 4: Social Service
Our morals thrive on compassion. We strongly believe in giving back to the society whatever is possible on our part. Conducting charity programs is an important activity for us.
Principle 5: Unending Learning
Every individual can teach something if we have the willingness to learn. We are inquisitive to learn as much as we are determined to teach. We wake up every day to be better than yesterday.
Principle 6: Mindfulness
We strive to induce self-awareness in ourselves and our students. We practice creating a state of calmness in every situation and thereby deliver our best even under challenging circumstances.
Principle 7: Harmony
We seek to create a balance between our mind, body, people, and nature. Harmony is the key to coexistence.
Principle 8: Gratitude
We are thankful to the divine for letting us exist on this beautiful planet amongst other beautiful beings. We are fortunate to be sharing our knowledge with the world and making it a peaceful place to live in. We express our gratitude through our endeavors.
Principle 9: Universal Trust
We believe in ourselves. We also believe that not everything is achievable in one go and for that, we believe in the universe. On days when the going gets tough, we derive the push for ourselves by seeking positive energy existing around us. The cosmos has all the answers and it is important that we trust it.
These principles are our reflections when we are exposed to the mirror of the real world. These are our identity and set us apart from others. On this journey of glorifying Yoga, we shall never deviate from these morals as they make for the spine of Rishikesh Yogkulam.
