Welcome to all of the enthusiasts interested in studying yoga at Yog Niketan Dham (100 Hour YTTC, 200 Hour YTTC) - an RYS 200 (Registered Yoga School) with Yoga Alliance, the USA based on the foothills of the Himalayas at Dev Prayag a small town next to Rishikesh in North India. We have extensive experience of years in conducting internationally recognized 100 & 200 hour residential yoga teacher training certification courses registered with Yoga Alliance. We put a lot of emphasis on the traditional multi-style of Hatha yoga and Ashtanga Yoga. These Courses aim at the functional and fundamental understanding of yoga - meditational practices to enhance the experiential exposure of the participants.
Winter (December, January): Kindly bring different layers of clothing from a simple t-shirt/ tank top to a heavy woolen jumper. Clothing to stay warm is needed not just outdoors but indoors as well, one can also think of yoga socks for the practice.
Spring (February, March, and April): The principle of layers still applicable with a kurta and long trousers will be fine enough in the coolness of spring. As we move towards March and April especially in the evening it starts to get warmer, in this case, light yoga clothing will be needed.
Summer (May, June): This is the best time for cotton or something that allows air transfers. Due to cultural restrictions as we can’t just strip off but within the center spaghetti tops/ tank tops and ¾ length leg wears will work okay.
Monsoon (July, August): In these wet and humid months you need to have footwear for rain with flip-flops. When it comes to clothing, it is the same as summer but a raincoat or small umbrella will be excellent.
Autumn (September, October, and November): Rain gets slow this time but the temperature is still there so light clothing like spring will be fine, as we come closer to November some additional layers are required.
Shoes for outdoors activities and flip-flops for indoors, moisturizers, body oil, and conditioner as per the individual requirements, hygiene articles, hand sanitizer, a mobile phone – you can have an Indian Number while staying for the course or traveling in India, hot water bottle will be very helpful from the month of November to February. In case of small cuts, injuries or bruises, you may wish to bring an antiseptic spray or cream, things like some essential oils may be useful too, an alarm clock (unless you use your mobile), adaptor plug, anti-diarrhea medication as a precaution, a torch will also be useful.
