He still maintains his relationship with his guruji and other teachers and attends their classes to enhance his own practice. Ravi Bisht aims at keeping Traditional Hatha Yoga as his only style of teaching as this is what gave him the utmost satisfaction and wants to spread his teachings with the same attitude and intention as he was trained by his teachers to the local boys of Rishikesh ,so that they can keep the value and culture alive. He is forever grateful to his teachers who guided him in making yoga as his career which provided him a healthy way to live and a spiritual understanding of the self through the path of yoga.

Ravi's love for yoga and the limitless benefits he has achieved motivates him to spread his knowledge and experience throughout his life. His belief is that yoga will make you experience fulfillment positivity, balance and self awareness not only in that one hour of yoga asana practice , it will help you to maintain that state for life at every moment.
