This guy is writing on behalf of - Association for yoga & Meditation (present id and real name - Mahesh). His other ids are - Recardo, Sewak etc. Earlier he used to teach at our center. Now he's simply jealous. Our yoga students last 2 years data is here: http://yoga-alliance-teacher-training.com/group/registered-yoga-teachers-ryt-200
All accusations are baseless. Replying to it doesn't seem to be a good idea. We've always tried to avoid directly naming anybody in our posts.
Post: Froud Yogi Roshan And Rishikeshyogpeeth

I have much suspicion regarding Rishikeshyogpeeth and its staff. Their operation, and it is exactly that, is tremendously unfortunate and I would even say criminal because sincere and innocent people are coming from very long distances to learn yoga and they are not getting anything substantial from Rishikeshyogpeeth.The majority of students attending this program are beginner students and due to this they have no prior knowledge of yoga. Roshan is simply taking advantage of his students and wasting 6 weeks of their precious time and money.
Roshan is a business man and a cunning one at that.He is higly knowledgable when it comes to developing his business but he is not a yogi. He has no significant degrees or diplomas in the yoga feild and therefore is unqualified. Ironically however he is now the main teacher of Rishikeshyogpeeth, an organization that furthermore has a criminal record.
I have collected all reports from L I U police regarding Rishikeshyogpeeth and was shocked to discover their involvement in a highly publisized scandal. This involved a female student who was being harrassed by staff members of Rishikeshyogpeeth. When she filed the police report Roshan along with Rishikeshyogpeeth paid off the LIU police in the ammount of 22 lacs rupes ($44,000 US). To make matters worse this money was taken from the students in which Roshan claims to teach.
This matter is common knowledge in Rishikesh seeing it was published in local newspapers in Rishikesh. I have compiled cuttings from these newspapers and can honestlly say female students are not safe in Rishikeshyogpeeth.
To all friends who are genuinely seeking truth on the yogic path Rishikesh is a wonderful and famous place to further your practice but some schools like Rishikeshyogpeeth are exploiting the value of yoga and for that matter the very spiritual essence of Rishikesh.There are many quality places in Rishikesh to complete a teacher training course. Please use your discriminitive powers in which god gave you to choose wisely not just for your own development and for the development of others but also to support those teachers who are truly deserving.
