The small city of Dharamsala is surrounded by the Dhauladhar mountain range of the Himalayas. Its high altitude presents a breathtaking view of the majestic mountains and the scenic Kangra valley below.
Tall pines and rhododendron offer a panoramic view of the entire area. With chants coming from various monasteries in and around Dharamsala, this is a truly spectacular environment to embark on your exciting and transformative yoga journey with Siddhi Yoga.
Dharamsala is home to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, along with many Tibetans who have taken refuge in Mcleodganj—a part of this small city in Himachal Pradesh, India.
The name ‘Dharamsala’ comes from the loose translation, ‘dwelling of spirituality.’ And the town holds true to its name. The area has a number of Buddhist monasteries and temples dedicated to Hindu gods and goddesses.
There are many attractions in and around Dharamsala besides yoga and temples, too. From one of the world’s most beautiful cricket stadiums, to trekking through the Dhauladhar mountain range, there really is something for everyone in this beautiful town.
Dharamsala provides a unique experience and ideal environment to immerse oneself into the yogic lifestyle while enjoying an exciting and life changing vacation!
Overlooking the beautiful Kangra valley, it is surrounded by tea gardens and pine forests that merge in the distance with the mighty Dhauladhar range. A spiritual realm bestowed with natural beauty and fair weather, Dharamsala is a perfect place to immerse oneself in yoga.

The Aryan Hotel, Village and PO – Dadh, Dharamshala-Palampur Road, Near Chamunda Temple, Palampur – 176052, District – Himachal Pradesh, India

You can relax in the comfort of your own private room with an attached bathroom, including a hot and cold shower. You can also enjoy full access to 24-hour Wi-Fi Internet.
You will be making new friendships that last a lifetime. Although your fellow yogis may come from various nationalities, you have all been brought together by the love of yoga. Friendships forged during yoga teacher training are very special. This is a period of great transformation for everyone. You will learn a lot from each other’s experiences and stories, which will enrich your yoga journey even further. To help forge these deep connections, all yogis enrolled in teacher training will stay on-site together.
The Yoga Diet is all about aligning with nature and learning to eat in a way that connects you with yourself and the planet.
Because a nourished body forms a healthy foundation for one’s mind and emotions, we’ll provide you with fresh, vibrant cuisine and a mix of healing and grounding meals.
Think abundant salads, mixed vegetable dishes, soups, daal, rice and plenty of fresh, local fruits. Our aim is to create balance and strength in the body; to heal the organs, tissues, muscles and bones that will be working hard for your month of training and beyond.
Given that there are not many options for dining outside the resort, all meals will be provided on campus (including Saturday and Sunday). You’ll just need to inform us in advance on Friday evening if you will be eating on campus that weekend. Many students often leave on the weekends to go sightseeing, trekking, shopping, etc., so we want to ensure no food is wasted. Weekend meals are complimentary from Siddhi Yoga.
Our primary goal is to provide a holistic teacher training program. We want to not only prepare you to be a fantastic yoga instructor, but also to help you grow your practice and learn all aspects of the yogic lifestyle.
This program stretches beyond the physical practice of yoga and dives into the mental and spiritual side, as well. You will be pushed beyond your limits in all areas of life—providing you with the opportunity to grow as a yogi and a human being.
From the history of yoga to human anatomy and physiology, we’ll cover topics you didn’t even know existed.
This is not a training course that simply has its students practice for eight hours a day. No, this is a course that will help students become teachers, as well as cultivate a solid physical and spiritual practice.
We’ll cover meditation, chakras and pranayama. You’ll go from practicing yogi to full-time yogi in the course of a month.
However, we want to make sure you maintain balance in your life. That’s why we’ve created our program to include excursions and free time to explore your surrounding area. We’ll hold bonfires, prayer sessions and kirtan, and there are plenty of other activities around the city to keep you busy each weekend.
As for what you’ll learn throughout the course, the list is endless. But to give you an idea, we’ll cover:
We offer a breath-based instructor training, which means your breath will guide you through the proper posture. The improper use of the muscles involved in breathing, such as the diaphragm, leaves other muscles strained with overuse, a prime physiological reason for muscle stress injuries.
However, an undeveloped breathing pattern is a powerful source of numerous psychological problems as well. This is why, along with the proper poses and counter-poses, specific pranayama practices will be taught to bring the body into perfect equilibrium.
Postural adjustment through yoga asana is a traditional and unique scientific practice. Yoga teachers and therapists with knowledge of this specific technique can help practitioners use their bodies in a more balanced and correct way, both in their yoga practice as well as daily life.
Additionally, you will be taught the importance of a proper muscle warm-up to prevent injury and help future students into poses more safely. We’ll discuss the use of props like blocks, blankets, chairs, bolsters, etc. to reap the full benefits of asana and to promote healing and recovery from injuries while aiding in proper bodily alignment.
Siddhi Yoga’s Teacher Training is the perfect environment to step outside your comfort zone and explore new aspects of yourself. The calming environment will help you tune out and tune in to your deepest self. You’ll have the opportunity to rediscover and reinvent yourself.
You will experience yoga as a lifestyle instead of a simple practice, and you’ll leave ready to begin the journey of your career as a yoga teacher.
This training course follows comprehensive Yoga Alliance guidelines, and complements these with rich teachings of traditional yoga that have been handed down to Indian yoga gurus from their ancestors. This creates a deeply yogic environment, going beyond the asanas to provide a comprehensive learning experience to students.

I have just completed my YTT200 in Dharamsala and it's been a life altering experience.
Not only did I learn about yoga, alignment, philosophy, but I also had a chance to grow as a person and heal. The teachers are real gurus in their fields, incredibly loving and supportive, the building is in the most beautiful spot, surrounded with the Himalayas and rice fields.
If you are coming here for yoga, you'll have it. But be prepared to find much more than yoga... maybe yourself.
Siddhi Yoga in Dharamshala felt like a home away from home. The teachers are incredibly intelligent and loving. You’re not just coming here to learn, but you’re coming to make new friends and family.
The location is also beautiful! I have never lived so close to the mountains before. Tons of great hikes and temples in the area to visit as well.
I would highly recommend yoga teacher training with Siddhi in Dharamsala. The surrounding Dhauladhar Range is an inspirational backdrop to our learning journey. The teachers are very knowledgeable and patient, they will always have an answer for any question. It was nice to walk up to the local farms and mountains for some down time. I will always hold dear the friendships, personal growth and knowledge I have gained here.
Siddhi yoga teachers and staff have become my family over the course of my stay. The program, location and food far exceeded my expectations. It was a privilege to be here and to graduate from this program. I feel prepared to go out and teach and beyond that I have made friends from all over the world who have inspired in more ways than I can express in a review. Thank you Siddhi Yoga!
Had a fantastic time here in Dharamsala, the whole team were supportive from the hotel cleaners to the Siddhi management. The classes were well structured and thorough feel confident to take classes as a thanks to the month training. Thanks again to all the team.
I knew I wanted to take my yoga teacher training in India. I settled on Siddhi Yoga - Dharamsala because of its wonderful reviews and its proximity to the Himalayas. I knew I made the right decision in the first class with Tara -- I left the class with a smile on my face and a smile in my heart. All of the instructors were invested in each and every one of us, wanting for all of us to grow our own practices and our abilities to teach. I left the course feeling confident in my teaching abilities. Thank you -- to all the students and staff -- for making this a class I will forever remember.
The experience at Siddhi Yoga in Dharamsala was incredible and was the first step on my journey to change my path. It was wonderful to be taught Yoga as a lifestyle with such excellence from all the teachers! The knowledge, experience, guidance and support from all of them was amazing! Was great to meet new people from all over the world, building a community of friendship with them the teachers and the staff. It was also wonderful being surrounded by the beautiful grounding Himalayas!
I had a great time at my training in Dharamsala! The location is amazing with the Himalayas right next to the school and the teachers were awesome!

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. Remember to check the weight limit for your domestic flight. Usually it’s 15KG and if you need extra weight, it’s recommended to buy in advance.
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.
