200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training - WHY INDIA?

yoga training in india

India is the birthplace of yoga.

And for those seeking the ultimate in yoga teacher training to improve their lives physically – and most profoundly – SPIRITUALLY and MENTALLY, you must go to the source of this ancient discipline.

India is this source.

Look at it this way, if you were only concerned with building muscle or burning fat you’d just buy some weights or join a gym.

But you’re a bit unique…

You took interest in yoga.

You want to reach a higher level of consciousness and find the inner peace a Pilates class. dumbbell or stair master won’t give you – and unfortunately neither will many yoga instructors or other teacher training schools around the world.

Which is why Yoga in India is so special.

With a wealth of teachers who’ve devoted their lives to the history and philosophy of yoga – from the Yoga Sutras to the Bhagavan to an array of other spiritual texts – India offers you the chance to develop your mind and spirit in a way nowhere else in the world can.

200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training India - Breath-Based Instructor Training

With proper posture being an essential part of successful yoga practice, it’s critical to focus on the breath and how it affects the rest of your body. Siddhi Yoga excels at guiding its students through all aspects of proper posture – this not only enhances your yoga experience, but prevents muscle stress injuries which can occur from the improper use of the muscles involved in breathing (example: when the diaphragm isn’t positioned correctly, you’re increasing the risk of straining other muscles from overuse).

But there’s an even deeper reason breath-based training is so important…

Your psychological health.

Thanks to Siddhi Yoga’s adherence to developing a healthier mind and spirit, we know full-well how and undeveloped breathing pattern is a source of numerous psychological problems. To ensure our students learn to use their bodies in a balanced and correct way, our instructors give you the proper poses, counter-poses and specific pranayama practices to bring your body into perfect equilibrium.

This knowledge becomes even more valuable if you’re seeking to become a yoga teacher or therapist. Postural adjustment through yoga asana is a traditional yet unique scientific practice and as a Siddhi Yoga graduate you’ll be able to employ these techniques to help your students or clients significantly improve their yoga practice as well as their daily life.

In Addition…

Siddhi Yoga provides you with a greater understanding on the importance of a proper muscle warm-up to prevent injury and to help your future students in poses more safely. We’ll also 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.

Course Reviews

yoga teacher training reviews by Charlene from France

I have just completed my 200 hours yoga teaching training in Dharamshala. It was beyond my expectations. I never did any yoga before, it was a great place to learn yoga and learn how to teach. The teachers were awesome, I like that they focus on the alignment. I learnt yoga but I also learn a lot about life. Being aware of my body and its challenge to do the asanas. I still have lot to learn and practice but it has been a great experience pushing me out of my comfort zone. Regarding the place itself, amazing view on the mountains. Rooms are comfortable, staff is very helpful. The food is traditional permitting to experience the culture. Moreover, the chef is very open to suggestions and preferences that we may have. A big thank you to everyone who has made those 3 weeks amazing.

yoga teacher training reviews by Stefan from Germany

It’s was an amazing course, my first Yoga course in India and I’m very happy with the outcome. Main focus was the postural alignment in the asanas and the anatomical understanding of it. We practiced the awareness in the posture from the first to the last hour and it sunk in, probably for the rest of my yogic life.

The teachers were great and the hotel, location and staff were fantastic. I can wholeheartedly recommend this 200 hour training as the foundation of a practitioner and teacher. Thanks to everyone involved for making it happen!

yoga teacher training reviews by Amy from United Kingdom

I am just coming to the end of my 200hr YTT in Rishikesh! I have loved it!

I have learnt so much from how to live a more balanced life, what to eat, when to eat, how to practice, safe practice, what to practice and how to share a more traditional yogic way.

Training in Rishikesh has filled me with the real energy of India and encouraged me to embrace time in a totally different way and allowed me to feel much more connected to nature and the true essence of life.

I will leave with a heart full of gratitude and inspiration knowing that I will come back soon.

yoga teacher training reviews by Sunil from India

I just completed my 200 hours teachers training at Siddhi Yoga Dharamshala. It was a fleeting experience and something new for me. The location is very fantastic surrounded by The Hills of Himalayas and the city of Dharamshala itself very beautiful. The most important thing to note is that no other Yoga Institute gives personal accommodations in this affordable price range.

The meals given to us consists of the balance nutrition and is a perfect yogic diet.

The teaching methods used by the teachers here is unique and they are very supportive. I personally liked their focus in alignment. It was all very helpful to me to take my own classes in the future. I will be very grateful to this course and the teachers.
