I finished my 200 yoga teacher training in Dharamshala in February and I loved it. The Siddhi Yoga team helped me through the whole process answering promptly my many questions from the first time I contacted them until my arrival to Dharamshala. The best thing about Siddhi Yoga is the amazing team they have. The teachers are passionate about yoga and super professional. Deep, Gurumukh and Amrita make and invincible team. The assistant teachers I had the pleasure to meet were always willing to help and support too. I chose Siddhi Yoga for the emphasis they do in alignment. I learnt more than I ever expect.
I took my first yoga class 29 years ago at age 16 and loved it. Years of on and off practice, mostly using books or video, led to many “bad habits” particularly in alignment. While I was very flexible and contort my body, I did it more harm than good. I learned this valuable lesson on my first day of Yoga Teacher Training in Dharamsala with Deep.
Prior to my arrival, I was suffering from some knee pain which got exacerbated by the long flight over. Siddhi Yoga’s “team of experts” worked with me and my injuries holistically to get me on a path to wellness. This was a very humbling experience for me as I am not used to my body rebelling against what I want it to do! I couldn’t bend my knees past a certain point without severe pain.
Deep, Guru Mukh and Dr Amrita all made sure I got through the training, and I learned more than I thought possible about how Yoga can HEAL the body when done with proper alignment.
Receiving the certificate at the end of the training was nice, but what I really gained from this experience will carry me through the rest of my life; the lasting friendships I made, the new relationship I have with my body, and a much deeper understanding of what Yoga really is. Even with the pain I felt, the infection I dealt with, if I could go back and do it all again, my answer is an emphatic yes. No regrets, just humble gratitude.
Siddhi Yoga school in Rishikesh was just amazing. You know when you would like to say something strong but you can’t because no words are strong enough to describe your emotions, that’s my situation actually.
The place was amazing, positive, all my teachers are incredible, they have the best kind of teaching for me, they can teach you with so much motivation, knowledge and love. I’m still impressed by them. I’m really happy to chosen this school, one of my best experience in my life. I could to find spiritual persons and teachers like I always wanted to meet. Anyway.
I spent one month with a class who was like a family. I’m not fluent in English and all helped me when I needed.
For all peoples hesitate to choose this school, my gift to you it’s to say : GO !
Thank you so much.
A great school with awesome and inspiring teachers! I would definitely recommend Siddhi Yoga! Thank you, Parveen, Siddhartha, Tara and Sumit for making my February 2017 so special. I already miss the time in Rishikesh.
What can I say, I will forever be so grateful I chose Siddhi yoga over every other school in Rishikesh!! All the teachers were just amazing. Parveen especially! Apart from my father I’ve never met anyone who could inspire me so much. His knowledge and way of teaching is absolutely amazing. so much so I now realise I have in fact NEVER been taught yoga properly before. Siddhartha made philosophy class a pleasure to be in, he really is a true inspiration. Tara was great with the Vinyassa lessons and always full of smiles, and I’ll never forget the lovely Dr Summit and his happy song. We were lucky enough to have a fabulous group and I now have some amazing friends for life. Hopefully the hotel will update the lower 2 floors to be the same as the top floor sometime soon but apart from that everything was fantastic! The guys at the hotel were also great with me when I was ill and certainly made sure I was okay and to let them know if they could do anything for me. I will definitely be returning to Siddhi to do my 300hr in the near future. Love and light to you all.
I am a Sri Lankan born Australian who ventures to Rishikesh to fix my knee through Siddhi therapeutic yoga. Not only did I fix my knee but I found a way of life! Deep, Gurumukh and Sumit changed my entire being! I can not express how amazing this course is, you will not only learn about yoga, yoga teaching, your body, mind and soul but also about humanity! Do yourself a favour and do whatever it takes to get to spend 200hours or more with Deep and his team at Siddhi yoga! Looking forward to my 300hours with you all 🙏🏾 💕
I am an American expat living in South India for the last 4 years. I knew at some point i wanted to take a TTC in yoga. At last i had some free time and decided to search for a place in India for a 200 hour course. I honestly can’t say how i stumbled onto Siddhi yoga and i know i read dozens of websites on courses offered but i did know i wanted certain things from a course– science and spirituality, anatomy in yoga, therapeutic and conscious training and of course in a place i had not been to yet. So i choose Siddhi based on the balance of information that i felt met my expectations as well as the informative way the website was set up. As soon as i read over it I decided this is where i would go. I travelled from south to the north of India where the temperature change was drastically different but the cold was very welcome! I will say the course was beyond what i expected. With a class of 8 together for a month we forged bonds and laughed and danced and got to know each persons strengths and weakness in the area of yoga. Each persons approach was different yet Deep was able to keep classes informative and enjoyable even at 6am freezing morning!! He has a way of seeing everyone in the class at the same time to correct and adjust alignments and poses. Taking the time to really work on the foundational postures is the true gem of the class… once a person does those correct all others fall into place. The philosophy with GuruMukh was brain challenging but definitely enlightening in many ways. i expect to continue ruminating over his classes for a long time. The anatomy was perfect and helped solidify the way yoga works on the body with Dr Sumit. The meditations, the dancing, the theory class, the practicals all balanced perfectly for an absolutely amazing experience. I am glad my first step into the journey of yoga training was with this course as now i can move forward with confidence and correct alignment. I hope to see a 300 course soon!!!!
Great experience with great teachers. I cured my persistent back pain within 2-3 weeks of the course. As an ex-ballet dancer, I abused my body and set myself up for more future injuries, and in this course I learned how to use my body the appropriate way, with the proper alignment and anatomy theory. Deep, Gurumuk and Sumit were very knowledgeable and attentive teachers. Although, only felt it after a month or so, it has given me great spiritual and emotional growth. Meera was always very professional and helpful organizer. The food was delicious too!!! Amazing job Siddhi Yoga!!
I had been practicing yoga for three years and needed to gain a deeper understanding of yoga philosophy and a more thoughtful guidance for my home practice (rather than random studio classes).
I am beyond grateful that I chose to attend the training at Siddhi Yoga. It was a life-changing experience for me. The program has three components, each led by a knowledgeable, experienced and caring teacher. The teaching of Deep, the master yoga teacher, is strongly grounded in his physiotherapy background and lays a very solid foundation with body alignment, alternation of postures and sequence. In addition, we also learned Pranayama and different ways to design a yoga class for our teaching. Guru Mukh, who lives in yoga philosophy, offers a profound understanding of Patanjali and offers an enlightening approach to connecting them to our daily life. Another highlight is Guru Mukh’s medication class during which we learned several meditation techniques and experienced the amazing impact of meditation. Dr. Summit, a practicing doctor, teachers one hour of anatomy class. He introduces us to the knowledge of bones, nerves, and organs and connects them to the techniques and benefits of yoga.
I loved my experience with Siddhi and will look at their schedule again for my 300hr training in a couple of hours. I highly recommend it to any yoga practitioners.
I did the course in Ubud Bali, the whole experience for a month was very nice we learned, we correct positions, the place couldn’t be more beautiful, teachers we transmitted their knowledge and passion for yoga not only as a way of taking care of your body but as A way of life which personally i am very grateful for this month they taught us and gave us the tools to improve our quality of life.
I did the Yoga Teacher Training 200hr in Ubud, Bali in September. It was fantastic! I learnt so much about the body, correct alignment, posture, philosophy… living and breathing yoga for one month. I felt like a new person at the end of it- so healthy and equipped with skills that I will use forever. Deep, Gurumuk and Dr Sumit shared their in-depth knowledge with us, and their passion, enthusiasm and care was wonderful.
Signing up for Siddhi Yoga’s 200 hour YTT course in Bali was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Everything about the program exceeded my expectations, from the beautiful accommodation to the delicious food and most importantly the insightful teachers. We were blessed to have Deep and Gurumuhk leading the course, their knowledge regarding yoga and health was inspiring while their passion and laughter were infectious! I am grateful to Siddhi Yoga for this unique experience and can happily say that I am feeling more grounded, healthy and connected than ever before. Thank you!!
An amazing experience & life changing moments. Knowledge of the key elements of yoga in physical postures, anatomy & philosophical teachings were mind blowing. Changed my perception of yoga & will carry it forever.
We all are in our own ways, striving to keep ourselves in a balance of both, physical and emotional aspects of health. When I was recommended to do this 200 hours Siddhi Yoga teacher’s training course, I was very skeptical to take a month away from my work and family and do this course in Bali. However, I was struggling with many medical challenges since many years and thought it as the last chance to try to do something about them without medication.
I feel blessed to have taken this course in Bali. Narasoma resort is the perfect place to do this course because of its abundant natural beauty.
Deep, our yoga teacher is the best teacher I have ever met in my life. He teaches from his heart. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. He goes out all the way to see to it that each and every student in the class has understood what is being taught. Vast experience, deep knowledge and intense Love for what he does, are the characteristics which I highly respect him for.
Gurmukh ji, teaches Philosophy, but actually he takes you by your hand through your heart to meet yourself in the depths that you may never ever be able to touch without this amazing teacher.
My anxiety and restlessness has disappeared and I have learnt how to keep watching myself effortlessly without even realizing it. The meditation sessions that we did with Gurmukh ji made me churn my deepest emotions and filter out everything that was not needed connected to my soul.
Dr Sumit is a phenomenal anatomy teacher who makes this science an absolute fun to study. Performing the yoga poses to their perfection became absolutely easy and scientifically logical.
Siddhi Yoga in Bali was a life time experience for me. I have returned with a treasure of understanding the root cause of my medical and emotional handicaps and above all the ways, means, tools and maps of how to manage my self inside out through Yoga practice.
I highly recommend Siddhi Yoga TTC to each and everyone out there irrespective of what and who you are.
The 200HR Siddhi Yoga TTC in Bali was one of the very best experiences of my life & I would highly recommend the program to anyone who is sincerely searching for truth and a deeper life experience, as the course was just as much philosophical as it was about learning alignment & postures. Personally, the program affected me on a deep level, and I experienced major shifts in consciousness and emotional releases throughout the program. There were times when I felt confused and out of my element, but the teachers were right there to support me with patience and acceptance, and I always felt safe to express myself honestly & freely.
I feel very fortunate to have studied with Deep & Gurumuk who are so loving, patient & genuine, and I honestly can’t imagine a better team to study yoga with. Deep is a high-energy, charismatic and funny speaker and a strong team leader. Each day was planned with a clear theme among the various classes with ample reinforcement of the key concepts throughout the day. The flow of the course progressed naturally and it felt almost effortless for the students to absorb the safety points and teaching methodology ~ it never felt rushed or as if the teachers had to push to get any point across.
While Deep’s method is very real-world & practical, Gurumuk gave us yet another perspective, bringing us to a space of expanded consciousness with various meditations, mind bending philosophy dialogues and ecstatic dance. Even outside of the official class hours, Gurumuk would invite the group to sing Kirtan (he has a wonderful voice!) and continue the discussions from class. In addition, Dr. Sumit tied in the information from the anatomical perspective & gave us many useful tools on how to further help ourselves & our students to do adjustments safely, open up the muscles and work with injuries.
Last but not least, Meera & Rajesh from Siddhi Yoga did an amazing job organizing the course ~ the location in Bali was just magical, the food was of the very best quality and the value we received from the course went above & beyond my expectations! I’m forever grateful to the organizers and teachers, and wish them all the best in bringing enlightenment & joy to all their future students.
A profoundly deep yoga experience. A journey into yoga much farther than the asanas. Anatomy, physiology, philosophy, and a safe and healthy lifelong practice all wrapped in atmosphere of compassion, understanding, patience, and acceptance. I had a beautiful life changing experience, and will simply never be the same. Absolutely no complaints. Thank you siddhi yoga team. So much love to you for what you do.
I completed the 200 teacher training course at Siddhi Yoga in Goa this year. The teaching was outstanding and the support and spiritual guidance incredible. Deep, the asana and pranayama instructor, is such an inspiring and generous teacher. And as well as being a consummate yoga practitioner, he is also a physio, so focus is given to correct alignment and general safety of students. Guru Mukh was our spiritual guide and we were blessed to spend 2 hours a day listening and discussing yogic philosophy with him. He remained on sight all day and also guided the whole group through many meditations, including Kundahlini. I am now teaching yoga in Goa myself, and really cannot speak more highly of my experience at Siddhi, where in 4 rigorous and enlightening weeks I learned so much.
What an amazing course!! I just finished the course in Bali at a beautiful resort tucked away in Ubud. The course was headed by Deep and what an amazing teacher of all aspects of yoga, not just physical. I came to Siddhi Yoga with many physical limitations and Deep modified the practice to support my body, instead of trying to fit me into a mold. The amount of love and attention to the students doesn’t end when you walk out of the classroom. The course goes deep into the philosophies of living a yoga lifestyle, as well as training you to guide people safely through a yoga asana practice. Guru Mukh’s philosophy class dives into the mind and ego and his meditation classes help to clear out the junk. I absolutely recommend this course!
When you read about experiences in Rishikesh you can always read “life changing experience” and as a reaction you face maybe sceptical, maybe curious, maybe just not react…
I came to do yoga, I tried not to have expectations. Thinking to do the same kind of yoga activity as I do in London and trying to improve and finding a quiet place for a peace of my mind.
The reason I chose Siddhi was merely related to the neat and clear website: everything shown, everything written and I do not deny, very affordable.
Then I contacted Meera. She has been, since the first email very kind, very polite, so professional. I liked it!!!
So I went.
What I found in Rishikesh?
Yoga, discipline, friends, myself.
Since the very first day we started to go in to deep with asanas: Parveen worked hard with us teaching alignments in order to keep postures in perfect way. It was tiring repeating over and over. And honestly, before breakfast he is strict, very serious!
After a nice peanut butter honey or jam toast or peanut butter honey porridge (inventory by one of my mates) everything was much easier ☺️
I loved every single day. Hard but rewarding. I could see myself improve.
I have been guided to my journey by Parveen and Tara trying to know the better style and the confidence to share with others my knowledge.
Summit helped a lot to understand my body and Siddhart my mind. I loved to be here and now and it has been the best experience of freedom.
I will bring it with me forever.
Thank you so much!!!!
I have completed my YTT200 with Siddhi Yoga at Rishikesh, the Yoga capital of the world. It was a great experience. Siddhi Yoga introduced me to the Spiritual journey and Yogic way of living.
The course covered all aspects of Yoga including theory and practice. Instructor Deep has a deep and thorough knowledge of Yoga. He conducted this training along with Gurumukhji and Dr.Sumitji, who are well equipped in their fields. I very much enjoyed Deeps friendly, flexible but firm way of teaching!! During this time, I also made friends with like-minded people from around the world, who were on the same journey.
I would recommend anyone to take this journey with Siddhi Yoga for personal enrichment and inner peace.
I just completed my TT200hrs in Rishikesh with Parveen ji, Tara ji, Siddartha ji and Sumit ji. I loved every single second of being there! I learnt so much and while there is still so much to learn I feel I have made a great foundation to continue to build upon. All the teachers are amazing, kind and very inspiring.
I’m looking forward to continuing this journey back home in Australia, my self practice is going to be soooo much more beneficial now and I’m very much looking forward to teaching!
Hopefully in a year or so Siddhi will be offering a 300hr TT and I’ll be ready to go back and experience more and gain more knowledge!
Rishikesh is beautiful! I love the Cows and all the super yum food!!!
And Hotel Moksha and the staff there are fantastic!
Life Changing experience to be Had!
Overall, I had a good experience in the Yoga Teacher’s Training at Siddhi Yoga in Rishikesh, India. The lead teacher, Parveen Nair and our Flow Yoga teacher, Tara Dutt Kandpal, are excellent teachers. Their instructions were clear and precise, and their energy were calming yet vibrant. They were able to respond very well to my inquiries about the practice and the philosophy of yoga in a way which was clear and easy to understand. They are both inspiring teachers and I highly recommend them.
The experience of learning to teach Yoga in India was amazing, and Siddhi Yoga prepares its students to teach anywhere in the world 🙂
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! 🙂
I did my YTT200 with Parveen & Deep in Goa during January 2016. I did a lot of research before choosing my teacher training, and I’m certain I made the right decision. Firstly, the teachers are the very best. They’re extremely dedicated and passionate about yoga. I appreciated their attention to detail and that they worked us hard but we still had time to enjoy ourselves and have fun. I didn’t come to India thinking I would actually become a teacher after, but through the course I discovered it was something I would love to do. Parveen is one of the best yoga teachers I’ve had, throughout India and elsewhere. He is so full of knowledge and passion, and always willing to share. For years I’ve struggled with my posture and back/neck tension, and the relief of that alone within the first 2 weeks was well worth coming for! The accommodation in Goa (we were at Beach Street) was paradise – perfect location on the beach. The food was tasty, healthy, and clean. It was well worth the investment and I can’t recommend this course enough!
