Siddhi Yoga’s foundation is a healing-focused therapeutic technique and workout program based on proper alignment, anatomical awareness and education. The training’s core aim is to restore proper, balanced posture to the body. This is achieved through neutral positioning of the limbs—starting at the feet and moving to the knees, pelvis, spine, ribcage and skull. Modern studies demonstrate that a balanced posture allows the human body to develop strength and stamina, whilst healing faster and more efficiently.
At Siddhi Yoga, you will find yoga’s very best learning environment and teachers. Our yoga retreats are joyous experiences. You will revel in them every moment, absorbing the different styles of yoga knowledge and the pristine beauty of our centers breath by breath. Our programs are specifically designed to deepen the learning experience for our students. We go beyond delivering simply the knowledge of yoga—you will be guided in an exploration into other realms of Vedic sciences, coupled with sessions on the history of yoga, prayer meetings and kirtans. Our students live and breathe the Vedic culture and yoga lifestyle. They absorb the experience in serenity, removed from the commotion of daily life. An environment of deep spirituality brings inner peace and augments the learning experience.
Our RYT 200 courses have been designed with a clear understanding of the level of knowledge and experience that prospective students will possess. The programs focus primarily on building physical strength, meditation sessions and discourses on yoga’s history, styles and benefits. We balance the learning experience with outdoor excursions, bonfires and collective prayer sessions. Of course, our program also extensively covers proper teaching techniques, how to avoid injuries, and how to help students progress effectively from novice to a professional level.
Learning yoga, whether for personal practice or for teaching, is an exhilarating experience. It works as an antidote to today’s stressful and chaotic lifestyle. However, it can’t be learned through books. For anyone to truly revel is this practice, it is imperative to have the right teacher—one who can help you attain divine calm in a slow, steady and custom process. At Siddhi Yoga, our teachers have not only honed the practice for decades under the guidance of the great yoga gurus of India; they are also experts in the yogic art of teaching. They realize that each and every student is different and requires a unique pedagogical approach. Teachers at Siddhi Yoga begin with helping students attain physical fitness and flexibility. Then, they assist them in attaining mental calm and spiritual peace.
Our accomplished teachers have helped many students channel the multitude of benefits that come with practicing yoga, as well as equipped them with the right tools and practices to establish their own teaching careers. Most of our teachers are certified by officially recognized bodies like Yoga Alliance USA, Yoga Alliance International, Kevalya Dham and the government of India.
Students come to us from all over the world to learn yoga and live the yogic lifestyle. In the last four years, more than 1000 students from 60+ countries have experienced Siddhi Yoga’s teachings. These include countries like Australia, Argentina, Austria, China, France, Greece, Indonesia, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, UK, USA and many more. These students left hundreds of video and written testimonials with us and on Google+, Facebook, Yoga Alliance, etc.
Siddhi Yoga hosts courses and retreats in four locations: pristine Dharamshala, the beautiful Goa, Holy Rishikesh and the land of Gods—Bali. Here, students live and breathe the Vedic culture and yoga lifestyle. As you immerse yourself in nature and yoga, you will rediscover yourself and live an unparalleled experience that will remain with you permanently.
Rishikesh, the yoga capital of the world. Located in the foothills of the Himalayas, Rishikesh is one of the holiest cities in India. Astounding views of the Himalayas, the spiritual atmosphere and presence of great yogis and their ashrams–setting foot in Rishikesh evokes a heavenly bliss in any yoga enthusiast’s heart.
Dharamsala is surrounded by the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. The high altitude setting presents a magnificent view of the majestic peaks above and the scenic Kangra valley below. The tall pines and rhododendron offer a panorama of the entire area. Combined with the chants echoing from the monasteries within and surrounding the city, this is a perfect backdrop against which to learn yoga.
