You’ll leave Siddhi Yoga with a solid foundation for teaching built on the philosophy and lifestyle of yoga, as well as a Yoga Alliance Certification. If you want to learn how yoga can go beyond the physical practice to improve body, mind and spirit, this program is for you.

Yoga Training Experience

Where You’ll Be

The small city of Dharamsala is surrounded by the breathtaking Himalayas.  Dharamsala is said to vibrate with the pure spiritual energy and abundance of the Himalayas. At Siddhi Yoga, you will be immersed in an environment that supports your yoga practice physically, energetically, and spiritually.

Dharamsala is known for being home to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, along with many Tibetans who have taken refuge in Mcleodganj, about one kilometer away. The word “Dharamsala” can be loosely translated to “spiritual dwelling place,” and amazingly, it lives up to its name.

What You’ll Study

Our 500-Hour Yoga Teacher Training is a rare opportunity for serious yoga practitioners to deepen their knowledge in the heart of India. Spending time with Indian yoga masters is an incomparable way to enhance your practice and prepare to share yoga with others.

This advanced yoga teacher training will take you beyond the basics and leave you ready to teach with confidence as a 500 Hour RYT. You’ll study advanced poses and learn to teach the basics with greater sophistication. Each phase of asana study is informed by anatomy, alignment, and physiology, preparing you to apply that knowledge to every sequence you create.

In addition to an in-depth look at the physical aspects of yoga, our 500 Hour training will guide you to explore expansiveness of mind through yoga philosophy, meditation, mudra, bandhas, kriya, and pranayama. You’ll also learn the therapeutic and psychological applications of these practices. Finally, you’ll explore the business and ethics of teaching yoga and leave fully prepared for success.

How We’re Different

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Should I take this yoga teacher training if I don’t want to teach?

Please do! Yoga teacher training is a wonderful way to deepen and recommit to your practice.

Q. How physically taxing are the trainings?

Siddhi Yoga has students of all ages attend training. Our multistyle approach to yoga ensures that everyone is successful. Yoga extends far beyond physical exercise, which you will experience at Siddhi Yoga through meditation, spirituality, and breathwork.

Q. How to reach Siddhi Yoga Dharamsala?

You will need to buy your international air ticket for New Delhi. From there we advise following one of two options to travel.

Option 1:

By Road through Air-conditioned Bus: It is highly recommended and much cheaper option than flight to board AC bus from Delhi to Dharamshala which starts around 6:00PM-7:00PM every day (an overnight journey) and reaches Dharamshala early morning around 6:00AM. Cost of bus ticket shall be around INR 1200. We may assist you to book your ticket through local travel agent with nominal fees of Rs.50. You may pay us later on arrival. Bus booking opens one month before the travel date. You can take a pre-paid taxi from Delhi Airport to reach Bus boarding point at Delhi.


By Air : There are two to three flights from Delhi to Dharamshala - Air India (one flight a day) and Spicejet (two flights a day). Airfare is in between INR 5500 TO INR 12000. Earlier you book; the more you save. Fares and availability of seats in the flight keep on changing every moment, 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 of this flight are minimal. Flight bookings can be done by yourself at your end. If you choose this option, then also please don’t forget to inform us arrivals details for Dharamshala.

For option 1 we will pick you up from the McLeodganj Bus stand and for option 2 we will pick you up from Dharamshala airport.

Q. Do you provide a yoga mat?

Yoga mats are provided. If hygiene is a concern, you are welcome to bring your own or purchase one locally.

Q. What style of yoga will I be learning?

Siddhi Yoga will expose you to several styles of yoga, including hatha, vinyasa, karma, bhakti, mantra, and raja. This comprehensive approach will help you develop a holistic view of how you want to teach.

Q. Do you offer payment plans for your yoga teacher training courses?

Yes. Please contact us for details.

Q. Do I need to get a visa and how to apply?

Yes, if you plan to stay fewer than 60 days, you’ll need an e-Visa. Your passport should also be valid for six months after the date of arrival.

Applying for a Visa is a very tricky and confusing process, especially for people who are traveling for the first time. But you don’t have to worry. Here we have covered all the necessary details.

Be sure your passport is valid for six months after the time of your arrival.

To attend training, you can use a normal tourist visa. If you are staying 60 days or fewer, you can also apply for an eVisa. You can apply for an eVisa 120 days before your arrival date.

e visa in india

Getting an Indian E–visa is easy and quick; however, it can also reduce your stay. The E–visa is processed within 72 hours, and you are required to apply for it at least four days before your departure. The E–visa cannot be extended, and you are only allowed to apply for it twice a year.

Except for the 17 major Indian airports, the E–visa users are not permitted to use any other arrival terminus. Your passport photos and bio must be scanned/uploaded. Once the procedure is completed, you can print out your E–visa. For application and further instructions, you can visit the following links:

Application: https://indianvisaonline.gov.in

Instructions: https://indianvisaonline.gov.in/evisa/tvoa.html

If you are planning to stay more than 60 days, or your country is not under the eVisa list, you will need to get the normal tourist visa, which should be valid for six months. Apply one month before your arrival, at the very least.

Q. Are there age restrictions?

We accept students ages 16 and up.

Q. What is your cancellation policy?

Depending on the training, a $300 or $600 non-refundable deposit is required to secure a spot. If for some reason you cannot attend, you can apply the deposit to any other program within a year. For the refund policy, please visit our FAQ page.
