200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course - Why You Should be Doing it in INDIA?

India is the birthplace of yoga.

200 hour yoga teacher training course india

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.

Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle and Ethics
During our 200-hour teacher training, we will cover yoga from a holistic perspective. This means you will learn the meaning of yoga, immerse yourself into a yogic lifestyle and learn the ethics of the yogic path.

The Meaning of Yoga

Yoga means ‘oneness’ or ‘unity’. It is the union of mind, body, spirit and breath. This 200-hour teacher training will give you the opportunity to dedicate an entire month to yourself and to your practice. You will have the chance to tune inward and listen to your truest self. It is an experience that will lead you to greater truth and understanding for the rest of your life. One of our primary focuses during teacher training will be Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. These sutras are a formula for transformation. They are divided into four different chapters, each with a different message:
  1. Samadhi Pada – Blissful state
  2. Sadhana Pada – Practice and discipline
  3. Vibhuti Pada – Manifestation through yoga
  4. Kaivalya Pada – Liberation
This leads us to the eight limbs of ashtanga as spelled out by Patanjali himself.
Yoga System – The Eight Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga
The eight limbs of yoga are essentially steps, all interconnected with one another, like a ladder. Our 200-hour teacher training will dive deeply into the following eight-limb path, giving you a clear understanding of the depth and importance of each step within your own practice.

The eight limbs are as follows: 

  1. Yama (Self-Restraint)
    1. Ahimsa – Non-violence
    2. Satya – Truth
    3. Asteya – Non-stealing
    4. Brahmacarya – Abstinence
    5. Aparigaha – Non-possessiveness
  1. Niyama (Fixed observance, regularity, purification)
    1. Sauca – Purification
    2. Santosa – Contentment
    3. Tapas – Simplicity
    4. Svadhyaya – Self study
    5. Ishvara Pranidhana – Dedication, surrender to God
  1. Asana (Posture)
  2. Pranayama (Breath Control)
  3. Pratyahara (Returning home)
  4. Dharana (Concentration)
  5. Dhyana (Meditation)
  6. Samadhi (Super consciousness, enlightenment)
Techniques, Training and Practice
There are many types of yoga. In this training you will have the chance to experience several different types. This is beneficial for many reasons.  You will get to try different ways of practicing, which will help when it comes time to decide which type of yoga you’d like to teach yourself. But practicing more than one kind of yoga is beneficial for more than just your teaching career. Through these practices, you’ll gain a new perspective of yourself and the world around you each time you step on the mat. Practicing many styles will give you a more holistic view of how and what you’d like to teach. This is precisely why we have incorporated different styles into our training: to give you the most comprehensive training we possibly can. Here are some of the styles that will be incorporated into our 200-hour yoga teacher training:
  1. Hatha Yoga – Yoga of Body and Mind Purification
  2. Vinyasa Yoga
  3. Jnana Yoga – Yoga of Enquiry
  4. Karma Yoga – Yoga of Action
  5. Bhakti Yoga – Yoga of Devotion
  6. Mantra Yoga – Yoga of Recitation
  7. Kundalini Yoga – Yoga of Energy
  8. Raja Yoga – Yoga of Meditation
At Siddhi Yoga’s teacher training, you’ll enjoy twice daily yoga practices. We do this to ensure you have a firm grasp on the asanas and their alignment, but perhaps more importantly, to ensure you maintain a strong yoga practice. After all, the best teachers are forever students!
The Yogic Lifestyle & Diet
Yoga is a lifestyle. It’s not simply a physical practice, but it extends to all aspects of our lives. That’s why we’ve created our teacher training in the exact way that we have. We want to immerse you into the yogic lifestyle from the moment you arrive on campus to the moment you receive your certification. This immersion will help lead you down a path of deeper knowledge, wisdom and personal transformation. Included in this lifestyle is a yogic diet. It’s believed that in order to reap all the benefits of yoga, one must complement their practice with a healthy diet. Maintaining a healthy diet will keep both body and mind in balance with one another. At Siddhi Yoga’s teacher training, you will be provided three meals, every day, which will contain healthy, seasonal foods. These meals will be either vegetarian or vegan and packed full of fresh, local fruits and vegetables.
Chakras
You’ve probably heard of them—those swirling lights of energy that yoga teachers seem to be talking about? Chakras. But what are they really? Well, they’re energy points throughout our bodies. And everybody has them. Imagine you’re sitting in lotus pose on the floor and there are seven balls of light running from the base of your spine through to the crown of your head. Those are your chakras. In our teacher training, we’ll dive to the depths of the chakras. You’ll learn what they represent, why they matter and how they work with one another. And of course, we’ll go into great detail about the role they play within yoga.
  1. Muladhara Chakra – Root Chakra
  2. Svadhisthana Chakra – Sacral Chakra
  3. Manipura Chakra – Solar Plexus Chakra
  4. Anahata Chakra – Heart Chakra
  5. Vishuddhi Chakra – Throat Chakra
  6. Ajna Chakra – Third Eye Chakra
  7. Sahaswara Chakra – Crown Chakra
The Importance of the Teacher in Yoga
The role of a yoga teacher is to guide students safely through a physical and mental practice that promotes an overall well-being as well as yoga education. In order to fully prepare you for the responsibility of being a yoga instructor, we have organized our teacher training to cover all aspects of a qualified yoga instructor. The Siddhi Yoga teacher training program will provide you with an in-depth understanding of human anatomy, pranayama, meditation and yoga theory. You will leave training fully prepared to teach future students in a safe and balanced environment. As a yoga teacher you will play an extremely important role in the impression of yoga as it’s introduced to students. This is why it’s so important to have a firm grasp of your personal practice as well as the knowledge to help students continue to learn and grow their practice. Being a yoga teacher holds a great responsibility. And there’s no better place to prepare yourself and learn what it takes to lead and teach a yoga class than a full immersion teacher training, just like ours.
Asana
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 a block of time every day to alignment, and the anatomy and physiology of the 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:

Pranayama
Pranayama is breath practice. ‘Prana’ translates into ‘life force’ and ‘yama’ into ‘expansion.’ It is commonly known as breathing practice and is often performed in yoga and meditation classes. Pranayama is an essential aspect of a yoga practice. It helps us cleanse our bodies of toxins, balances the nervous system, releases tension and increases the amount of fresh oxygen flowing to our brain. As a yoga instructor, you’ll need to know some basic breathing exercises. It’s one thing to read about pranayama in a book or online, and it’s a completely different thing to practice it yourself and really experience the effects on your body. In our 200-hour course, we start off every single day with breathing exercises. This way, you’ll have a clear understanding of how it feels to breathe in different ways, as well as obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to teach it yourself.

Types of Pranayama

  • Nadi Shodhanam – Alternate Nostril Breathing
  • Ujjayi – Expanding Breath
  • Bhastrika – Bellows Breath
  • Kapalabhati – Cleansing Breath
  • Sheetali – Cooling Breath
  • Sheetakari – Hissing Breath
  • Bhramari – Humming Breath
 
Anatomy and Physiology
It’s no secret that in order to be a good yoga teacher you’ll have to know a little bit about the anatomy and physiology of the human body. You’ll spend one hour every day learning the ins and outs of the human body. Here’s what we’ll cover:
  • The Digestive System
  • The Endocrine System
  • The Skeletal System
  • The Muscular System
  • The Respiratory System
  • The Circulatory and Cardiovascular System
Not only will we learn all about these different parts of the body, we’ll talk about which poses are good for what and the best times to practice them. You’ll gain a deep understanding of the human body and learn how to help future students with injuries find a way through their own practice.

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.

Every our class was so joyful, light and wonderful!!!
