Join our 100 and 200-hour yoga teacher’s training in India to get a spiritual offer to immerse yourself in the science and philosophy of yoga. At the same time, you spend an incredible few weeks experiencing culture as bright and joyful as India with us.                       

Why do you need to attend a yoga teacher training?

There are several established institutions worldwide teaching and promoting yoga. However, you must remember that yoga’s true origin lies here, in India, where around 5,000 years ago, yoga practised ever since sages and yogis have been living a yogic lifestyle and preaching it to enthusiasts from around the world.


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

  • Our Yoga school in India offers you a serene scope to practice living an ashram life. This unique opportunity comprises a residential school that is solely designed towards proving a better learning environment with the least amount of distractions. You also get to experience a better balance between the mind, body, and soul. At the same time, you learn to challenge yourself to develop – 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 living a disciplined life. During the course of yoga teacher training in India, you will be expected to follow certain guidelines which are designed to improve the yogic system. As overwhelming as it may feel at first, you will soon find yourself having a better structure of life.
  • Though India offers the only option for practicing ancient yoga in its most authentic form, the pricing here is as affordable as it can get. Most of the 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.
  • Traveling to India, a country so unique from everywhere else brings you an opportunity to live differently, be content with what you have, live in an ambiance where the teacher-student relationship is 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?

The most remarkable aspect of yoga is that it is for everyone. You can practice yoga and meditation regardless of your age, gender, culture, orientation, and any such factor. Of course, you must physically practise postures and some other techniques, but mostly, anyone with a zeal to live a yogic life can 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 in a yoga teacher's 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.

What should you expect out of our Yoga Teacher Training Course?
