The Yoga Diet is 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 a 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. The aim is to create balance and strength in the body and heal the organs, tissues, muscles and bones that will be working hard for your month of training.
Given that there are not many options for dining outside the resort, all meals are provided inside the 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 sight-seeing, trekking, shopping, etc., so we want to ensure no food is wasted. Weekend meals are complimentary from Siddhi Yoga.
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.
We offer a breath-based instructor training, which means your breath will guide you toward the proper posture. This 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 injury. However, the yoga sutras also state that a poor, undeveloped breathing pattern is a powerful source of numerous psychological problems as well. Therefore, along with the proper poses and counter poses, specific pranayama are 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, students will be taught the importance of a proper muscle warmup to prevent injury. Students will also be taught the use of props like blocks, blankets, chairs, bolsters, etc. to reap the full benefits of asana. Props promote healing and recovery from injuries while also aiding in proper alignment in the body.
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.
As a graduate of Siddhi Yoga, you will be certified by one of the largest and most-trusted names in yoga training internationally. We have instructed students from over 60 countries. Your certification also qualifies you for Yoga Alliance certification. We use this third party accreditation agency to ensure our quality and international standards are met.

Wow! How can ever describe the magic and connectedness of my month long course with Siddhi Yoga. Every element aligned perfectly with our needs and the teaching was comprehensive, supportive and deep. As we journeyed through philosophical landscapes and challenged our physicality in ways we couldn't imagine, so we transcended our daily limitations and entered a space of peace and freedom where we could work with our most powerful selves. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, I cannot rate this course highly enough. Wish I could go back and do it all again.
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! :)
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!
Completing my teacher training with Siddhi Yoga is one of the best decisions I have ever made! My teachers were extremely knowledgeable, loving, and supportive. I learned more than I thought possible. Highly recommended!
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.
I was very happy with my YTT. I am looking forward to starting to teach yoga myself and would consider Siddhi Yoga when I'm ready to complete further training.
The school was absolutely amazing, I learn so much about so many different styles of yoga. I would recommend this school to anyone who want to learn Yoga to its depth. I definitely plan on going back for my 300 hour course hopefully in Bali. Siddhi Yoga made my experience during my stay life changing. The teachers are Extremely qualified. Thank you Siddhi Yoga for all you taught me. Namaste Jana
