200Hr Yoga Teacher Training

3rd – 21st August 2022 Rishikesh, India

Destination trainings allow you to be fully immersed in your yoga, as well as a new culture and new place.
Located in the foothills of the Himalayas, Rishikesh has the power to add colours and beauty to every being’s life who visits it.
Beautiful temples, breathtaking waterfalls and natural landscapes, delicious food, and warm-hearted and welcoming people.
Every evening the area lights up with the aarti and it is truly a majestic sight to witness. After sunset, several diyas (lamps) are set afloat in leaf boats in the holy river Ganga.

ABOUT

This Yoga Alliance 200Hr Yoga Teacher Training is based on clear and effective style of practice and provides a solid foundation to teach yoga.

This training is appropriate for the students who would like to start teaching yoga, as well as students who would like to deepen their own knowledge & yoga practice.

We are teaching with love and care, and our wish is sharing the passion for yoga with our students, so each can leave the training a confident, skilled and soulful teacher.

To make our courses meaningful, we use an approach that is consistent with what we are proposing. All human beings—and that includes you and us—learn through active mental engagement. 

Preserving the unique voice of each individual, our international faculty provides positive guidance and tools, so you can:

  • deepen your personal yoga practice
  • have a greater sense of who you are and your purpose in life and the joy of enabling others to achieve this
  • practice or teach from a significantly more informed and experienced position
  • practice and teach all level yoga classes
  • run your own retreats and yoga projects with confidence and empathy

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The training is physically and emotionally demanding; therefore we require that all students have prior yoga experience of at least 1 year, and are committed to improving their practice.

Please note that some students that attend our teacher training simply wish to deepen their practice and do not intend to teach immediately. This is fine with us, as what matters more to is a student’s dedication, commitment to personal growth and openness to learning. 

It is important to understand that this is a teacher training and not a yoga retreat. Please note that our yoga teacher training courses are not suitable for people who are looking for a relaxing or rejuvenating yoga experience. To them we suggest to consider our Yoga Retreat programs.
