Come be a part of our 100 and 200-hour yoga teachers training in India to get an opportunity to truly immerse yourself in the science and philosophy of yoga while you spend an incredible few weeks experiencing culture as bright and joyful as India.


Why do you need to attend a yoga teacher training in India?

There are several established institutions all around the world teaching and promoting yoga, however, you must keep in mind that yoga’s true origin lays here, in India, where around 5,000 years ago, yoga was first practised. Ever since sages and monks have been living a yogic lifestyle and preaching it to enthusiasts from around the world.

We respect and appreciate the entire yoga fraternity, but it is only in India that you get an insight into the ancient practices of yoga and meditation. Here are some of the additional reasons that may help you make up your mind:

  • Our school in India brings you a scope to practice living an ashram life. A unique opportunity, the ashram style living comprises a residential school that is solely created towards proving you a better learning environment with the least amount of distractions. You also get to experience better balance between your mind, body, and soul, and at the same time, you learn to challenge yourself to evolve – not just physically but also mentally and spiritually.
  • The culture and lifestyle of India is quite different than the west. Living in the country, you will learn how to adjust to a way of life that you are not used to. You will learn to expand your horizons and be open to everything around you. This will make you stronger and wiser.
  • Ancient yoga is all about discipline and dedication. During the course of your yoga teacher training in India, you will be expected to follow certain guidelines which are designed to improve your yogic learning. As overwhelming as it may feel at first, you will soon find yourself having a better structure to your life.
  • Though India offers the only chance for practicing ancient yoga in its most authentic form, the pricing here is as affordable as it can get. Most schools follow a simple ashram style living and only expect you to pay the bare minimum that it takes to provide for your food and accommodation and learning resources.
  • Travelling to India, a country so different from everywhere else in the west, brings you an opportunity to live differently, be content with what you have, live in an ambience where the teacher-student relationship has been respected for thousands of years, and meet like-minded people from all around the world who join you in the process.

Who is suitable for Yoga Teacher Training in India?

The most remarkable aspect of yoga is that it is meant for everyone. Irrespective of your age, gender, culture, orientation, and any such factor, you can practice yoga and meditation. Of course, you must physically be able to practice postures and some other techniques, but mostly, anyone with a zeal to live a yogic life is able to follow the discipline.

A yoga teacher training in India is most suited for those who wish to:

  • Begin their yoga journey as a novice and gain insightful experience into a teacher training course
  • Professionals who have been practicing for years but haven’t had the chance to acquire an official certification
  • Yogis who wish to refresh their learning of yoga, meditation, and other aspects of yogic studies
  • Enthusiasts who wish to earn a Yoga Alliance accredited teaching certificate that enables them to teach in any corner of the world or open their own learning center
  • Seekers who wish to learn ancient yoga while exploring the motherland where the discipline emerged a few thousand years ago
