Yoga Teacher Training Retreats & Courses in Rishikesh

Dear Student,
If you are looking to add more zen to your yoga practice, or seeking knowledge and confidence to spread the word about yoga, or simply looking to deepen your practice, then Siddhi Yoga 200hr Yoga Alliance Certification course in Rishikesh is for you.

Here's Why You Should be Doing This course

Here's how our yoga teacher training program will help you

You will unlearn all the things that bring chaos in your life - During the course of our lives, we tend to develop a lot of habits that bring unnecessary burden with them. We can't get rid of them because they are addictive. At Siddhi Yoga, you will be able to lift the burden of these habits from your shoulders, and move to a healthier lifestyle.


You will discover your true potential - There may have been times you must have felt, "I can't do that", then be it an asana or something at work or home. At Siddhi Yoga, through our in depth traditional yoga schedule, students are able to discover their true potential and overcome their fears to become confident individuals.


You will deepen your practice - With the right guidance and motivation, you will be able to do asanas you never thought you will be able to do. Additionally, with right guidance on alignment, use of props and purpose of each pose – you will discover that you are learning much faster than you had ever imagined.


You will learn how to teach the right way - Every yogi tends to teach yoga, then be it professionally as a yoga teacher, or as a facilitator to friends and family. Whenever you get the opportunity to spread the knowledge of yoga you need to teach yoga the right way. Most people inadvertently believe that one automatically becomes a teacher when he/she learns to do the asanas correctly. However, there is more to yogic teaching. The nuances of yogic teaching - that inspire and enrich – are deeply ingrained in the Siddhi Yoga teacher training and are passed on to students who come here for teacher training courses.

You will experience yogic transformation in your life - Yoga goes beyond physical transformation. Our 200 hours teacher training course enables students to discover the mind body connection that yoga can bring about.


You will form lasting friendships - At Siddhi Yoga, you will find likeminded students, from different backgrounds, brought together at Siddhi Yoga to bring about a deeper purpose in their practice. Living and learning with likeminded people for more than a month allows students to develop friendships that last way beyond the yoga training.

At Siddhi Yoga you'll learn how to:

  • Plan a powerful class
  • Teach a 60, 75 or 90-minute class
  • Be an effective and inspiring instructor
  • Modify poses for injuries or limitations
  • Inspire and motivate your students
  • Identify areas, physical or emotional, where your students need help
  • Use therapeutic yoga to alleviate pain

How Do I Know if I'm Ready to Teach?

Yoga is not a competitive sport; it's a way of life. And there is no fixed time slot in life to live life the right way. Some students want to go deeper with the practice as soon as they discover it. Then there are others who take longer to come to that decision. However, the guiding factors for taking up teacher training are the passion for yoga and a desire to spread the knowledge, professionally or otherwise. In yoga, the important thing to remember is that you will always be a student and will be always learning. However, when you feel the inner readiness – you are ready to take the leap to teacher training.

What if I Can't Do All the Poses?

Yoga teacher training doesn't train you for an acrobatics show. Instead, through the poses, it allows you to discover your true self. Every training session has unique individuals with unique bodies. And not everybody will have the same level of litheness in their bodies. The important thing to remember is that yoga is not about pose perfection but about realizing the benefit, the pose is bringing within us.

Additionally, the purpose of your training is to learn to teach, which goes way beyond pose perfection. Your students will be in awe of you, not because of your pose perfection, but with how easy you make each pose for them, and that is what you will learn here. Additionally with the rich experience that Guru Mahi, Acharya Yogesh and their team here have, there will be no pose that you won't be able to do at all. You may or may not achieve perfection, but you will be able to all the poses.

Teacher training is one decision that transforms your life - for the better. For me, this is the biggest motivation – that I can be a change agent in someone's positive transformation. I too have gone through the phase of being unsure about yoga teacher training. Believe me, it's natural to be in doubt. However, once you let your inner conscious take the decision, you know you are in safe hands.
Congratulations on your decision to become a yoga teacher. Hope to see you soon at Siddhi Yoga.
Namaste,
