Siddhi Yoga’s 300-hour yoga teacher training is an advanced yoga teaching program.
Our 300-hour program is for yogis who wish to advance their teaching skills and hone in on fundamental concepts of yoga. Trainees will be prepared to teach principles and techniques that are more advanced and more detailed.
When you complete our 300-hour yoga teacher training, you will be aptly prepared to teach more confidently and with greater skills than before.
Our program is specifically designed to go beyond basic yoga knowledge—we want to take you deeper. We will explore ancient Vedic practices, literature and philosophy.
We’ll also dive into the practice of meditation and its role in our personal evolution throughout life. You will leave training with a stronger sense of inner peace as well as the tools to teach others the gifts of yoga and meditation.
During our 300-hour program, we’ll take the time to break down each asana (posture), including advanced postures, to give you the knowledge and skills to deepen your practice and help others do the same.
This high-level training program will cover the ethics of teaching yoga, as well as the business of teaching. We want you to be ready to teach—right out of the gates—so we’ve created this program to make sure you’re fully equipped to teach, as soon as you receive your certification.
We’ll go in-depth on the importance of creating and maintaining strong student-teacher relationships and how to build upon these special relationships.
From learning different sequencing techniques to the anatomy and physiology of yoga, our 300-hour teaching training program covers everything. We prioritize depth over a basic survey of practices. This means, instead of surveying a wide range of topics, we’ll dive deep into specific and meaningful aspects of teaching yoga.
As with our 200-hour teacher training programs, we strive to create an environment for our students to immerse themselves into the yogic lifestyle. This is why we’ve made sure to provide a space for our students to do just that: live and breathe yoga and Vedic culture.
And you’ll have plenty of time to explore the area over the course of your teacher training as well. We believe in balance, which is why we’ve made time for outdoor excursions, activities and prayer sessions.
To get a clearer understanding of our 300-hour yoga teacher training, we’ve put together the following guide, fully equipped with everything you need to know and what to expect when you sign up for our program.
You must have completed 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training from us or one of the Yoga Alliance (USA) accredited school. If you have not done your 200 hours yoga teacher training yet, you can know about it here >>>> Siddhi Yoga 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training.
We get it—yoga philosophy texts were written ages ago. But they still apply to our daily lives, and we believe we need them now more than ever.
This is why our 300-hour training programs begin with these ancient words of wisdom. Over the course, we will study The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, The Bhagavad Gita and The Upanishads.
The study of these texts will show us how these philosophies are not merely mystical ideas, but applicable to ourselves as individuals and as a collective society. You’ll leave the program with a deep understanding of yogic philosophy and a great appreciation for the history and meaning behind yoga.
We will take a look at how mediation affects our mind, energetic body and entire being. We’ll cover how meditation can be used to aid in spiritual growth and transformation and, ultimately, guide us toward inner healing.
We’ll use these tools to learn how to incorporate meditation into your teaching practice and understand the important role it plays within yoga.
How does yoga affect the mind, emotions and self? We’ll discuss the different functions of each system, and the benefits and drawbacks of each.
We’ll include discussions on the psychology behind yoga, including different ways asana and pranayama affect the mind. Our aim is to give you the opportunity to experience the psychological benefits of an advanced yoga practice and to take you deeper into your mind.
The 300-hour teacher training goes beyond basic asana practice. We will go in-depth on advanced yoga postures—alignment, benefits and application—so that you’re ready to not only practice these poses on your own but teach them as well.
The third limb of Patanjali’s eight limbs is asana practice. Meaning ‘steady and comfortable posture’, asana makes up a large portion of yoga. Poses were created to open up different parts of the body, revitalize our brain, organs and joints, and stimulate blood flow.
Understanding the yoga poses is integral to your influence as a yoga instructor. That’s why we’ll dedicate 50 total hours to alignment, and the anatomy and physiology of advanced poses.
You’ll leave teacher training not with just a basic understanding of asanas, but with a deep knowledge of each pose, the proper way to do them and modifications for those who need them.
Here are the postures we’ll be focusing on throughout training.
The role of a yoga teacher is very important. Balance must be maintained in student-teacher relationships and we’ll go into detail on how to cultivate these relationships. There is a fine line between teacher and friend and it’s so important to remain professional while teaching.
We’ll dedicate time to making sure you know how to stay professional while simultaneously providing a sense of comfort and support to your students, in turn creating a more encouraging and pleasant atmosphere.
Throughout the 300-hour training program, we will cover various ways yoga can be used for healing. While an intense physical practice, yoga also provides many therapeutic benefits, for both the mental and physical bodies.
Students will be taught how to apply yoga to the following conditions:
It is critical for yoga instructors to understand the different aspects of our anatomy and physiology and how each bodily system relates to yoga individually.
We’ll spend 50 hours covering the following topics:
Pranayama is the fourth step in the eight limbs of yoga and therefore is a vital component in a yoga practice. In this section, we’ll discuss advanced breathing techniques and their benefits. Students will put them into practice and experience for themselves the effects of correct breathing practices.
Not only will you learn about each breathing technique, but you’ll have the opportunity to practice them yourselves. This way, you’ll have a better understanding of what each breath practice feels like, so you’re more prepared to teach them later on.
In our 300-hour training program, we will discuss the benefits of Mudra (symbolic gestures), advanced Bandha (body locks) and Kriya (a ritual or sequence that works toward a specific outcome). This will include application, benefits and contraindications.
Students will have the opportunity to put into practice what they learn and be given time to discuss their experiences with trainers and other students.
Practicing yoga and teaching it are completely different things. That’s why we’ve created our 300-hour training program to include different techniques for teachers, the foundations of a good yoga class and how to connect with the students.
Vinyasa yoga is much more than a series of movements. Sequencing a vinyasa yoga class can be very challenging and takes a lot of thought and preparation.
We will spend a lot of time going over each layer of a vinyasa yoga class, from theming classes, preparing your class and taking care of students.

An amazing experience & life changing moments. Knowledge of the key elements of yoga in physical postures, anatomy & philosophical teachings were mind blowing. Changed my perception of yoga & will carry it forever.
Life changing experience which can definitely be recommended to anyone! My lower back pain of 20 years was cured within 2 weeks partly because of core exercises we were given but I also think the physiotherapeutical angle to the yoga we were taught helped. And the mind blowing philosophy classes probably takes most people on a journey way beyond anything they have experienced before, at least it did for me!
A profoundly deep yoga experience. A journey into yoga much farther than the asanas. Anatomy, physiology, philosophy, and a safe and healthy lifelong practice all wrapped in atmosphere of compassion, understanding, patience, and acceptance. I had a beautiful life changing experience, and will simply never be the same. Absolutely no complaints. Thank you siddhi yoga team. So much love to you for what you do.
What an amazing course!! I just finished the course in Bali at a beautiful resort tucked away in Ubud. The course was headed by Deep and what an amazing teacher of all aspects of yoga, not just physical. I came to Siddhi Yoga with many physical limitations and Deep modified the practice to support my body, instead of trying to fit me into a mold. The amount of love and attention to the students doesn’t end when you walk out of the classroom. The course goes deep into the philosophies of living a yoga lifestyle, as well as training you to guide people safely through a yoga asana practice. Guru Mukh's philosophy class dives into the mind and ego and his meditation classes help to clear out the junk. I absolutely recommend this course!
Taking part to Siddhartha classes made regret not to have studied philosophy before. I enjoyed so much to listen to him. He made all the complex subjects so easy thanks his competence and the example that could offer: in a couple of occasions I felt my heart to expand, I was so happy that I needed to cry. I need to thank him for give these emotions and remind me the happiness to be here and now.
Last but not least... His voice... He opened every class with chanting made me meditating so well. He is an excellent teacher with a great sense of humour as well. I hope to see you again.
The experience of learning to teach Yoga in India was amazing, and Siddhi Yoga prepares its students to teach anywhere in the world :)
I must say it is really wonderful to take up this Yoga Teacher Teaching Course in Siddhi Yoga Daramsala. It provides excellent environment at the foot of the Himalayas with spectacular scenic view. The teachers are very experienced, resourceful, practical, passionate, kind and always taking care all of us. The teaching is very systematic, comprehensive and interesting. After one month of vegetarian food in the campus I have become more healthier and started to take more vegetarian food after the course. All of us graduated with a big smile! :)
Amazing experience. Go into the program with an empty mind and get more connected with thy self. You have to stay in the spiritual because the natural is way too small. Namaste!
This course is a Beautiful combination of clinical and excellent life style modification, through physical mental and spiritual understanding and knowledge. Teachers are awesome and good focus on application of Yoga in our today's life.
I had befriended my sciatica pain because had tried many treatments, but just in a week my pain has subsided. Have gain my mental strength, awareness, good posture.
Made lovely friends and after ages laughed my heart out with all of them. Loved being here and will ensure my teacher's effort on me won't go waste. Thanks a ton to Guruji, Sindhuja, Ritesh, Dr. Amrita, Gurumukh and both Sonu's.

I recommend this teacher training course to anyone that has a passion for Yoga and wants to share that passion with others! From the true yoga aspect that yoga is all about experiencing a joining of mind, body and soul, my experience was a successful 1000%. Completing this course is one of the proudest accomplishments in my life. We all came from different positions in life, we shared them and melded to join together to complete this journey -to commitment to learn how to teach the wonderful lessons of Yoga. IT has truly taught me to accept discomfort on the mat and I bring that off the mat to help cope with everyday business life. I have learned to meditate - everyday. Thank you to all of my teachers.

Complimentary items for the Dharamshala training
You will need to buy your international air ticket for New Delhi. From there we advise following one of two options to travel to Dharamshala, where we’ll pick you up:
By air : Dharamshala airport is known as Gaggal Airport. There are two flights from Delhi to Dharamshala – Air India (one flight a day) and Spicejet (one flight a day, occasionally they have a second flight). Both flights start in the morning with an hour difference. You must be at the New Delhi airport by 8AM for all flights. Airfare is between 5500 INR and 12,000 INR. The earlier you book, the more you save. Fares and availability of seats in the flight change constantly and can be checked/booked online via www.makemytrip.com or www.yatra.com. It is advisable to book through Spicejet, as their service is quite reliable and cancellations are minimal. If you choose this option, please inform us of your arrival details for Dharamshala.
By road in air-conditioned bus: Taking a bus from Delhi to Dharamshala is much cheaper than flying. Busses start around 5PM-6PM every day and reach Dharamshala early in the morning. Bus tickets cost around 1200 INR. We can assist you to book your ticket via www.redbus.in, as the site requires a local phone no. and local card. You can pay us later upon arrival. Bus booking opens one month before the travel date. You can take a pre-paid taxi from Delhi Airport to the reach bus boarding point, Delhi.
For Option 1, we will pick you up from the Dharamshala airport; for Option 2, we will pick you up from Dharamshala bus stand.
Note: The nearest international airport to Dharamshala is Amritsar Airport. However, there is no connectivity to the Dharamshala airport from there nor AC bus service. If you plan on selecting this option, you will need to take a taxi from Amritsar, which will cost you around 5,000 INR. We can help you book a taxi if needed.
