Welcome! To Samast Yoga

Yoga is addiction. An addiction to a better health, mind and soul

Samast yoga school was founded in Rishikesh by Nitish Madaan, a software engineer turned yogi, who realised his passion for a spiritual life and helping others realise their too. Yoga is a journey to your inner self. It leads to truth and harmony.

The journey started when Nitish undertook a Yoga and Spirituality course from Sivananda Ashram in 2015 and became and ardent follower of divine life, a lifestyle that helped him understand the real meaning of life. His regular Yoga practice  made him realise that he doesn’t want to keep the knowledge to himself only but transfer to others too.

At Samast Yoga, we teach traditional Hatha Yoga, Hatha Flow, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and Kundalini Yoga, as well as Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga, Children’s Yoga and Health & Wellness classes. Now Samast Yoga envisions to be a journey of self-discovery for those who come through its doors. It strive to honor the founding principles they set forth, recognizing that there is a yoga for everyone and everybody.

Whether young or old, experienced or a total beginner, Samast Yoga has something for everyone.

We welcome you to our school.  We welcome you to our family.

Words By Nitish

As a teacher, my biggest gift I have is the students

I have had a lifelong devotion to Yoga and Indian Philosophy and have been studying, practising and teaching yoga for over five years now. My soul-searching led me to living long-term in two different spiritual communities. I opened Samast Yoga in 2018, and started teaching Yoga Teacher Training Courses as I want to pass the knowledge to others
If there’s one thing that both yoga students and teachers often forget, it’s this yoga teachers are students too, and that’s what I teach and preach. 
Yoga teachers are forever students because there are always techniques and knowledge to develop, improve, and get a deeper understanding of. All yoga teachers should be willing to learn and pick up tips so they can keep improving their ability to lead an amazing class.
Think of Yoga as a fun activity.  Roar like a lion, rock like a boat, arch like a cat, and be playful with your practice. Keeping it playful — safe, but playful — will leave students loving it and wanting more.

What our student's say

How yoga has changed lives? Hear from our newest members.

Samast Yoga was a transformational experience that fulfilled much more than my expectations. The 200 hour teacher's course is holistic and balanced with a particularly generous dose of spirituality and Eastern Mysticism.

I would highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to look inwards and find peace while looking good on the outside too : ) I take what they taught me with me everyday and look forward to the time when I'll return.
Practising for 2 months
Really enjoyed the Abhayaranya - Samast Yoga experience. I was looking for a strong foundation to start a path in yoga and learn how to become a great teacher and that is exactly what I found
