200 Hours Residential Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh

The town known as, ‘The World Capital of Yoga’, Rishikesh is set along the Holy Ganga River in India. Set at the foot of the Himalayas, Hindu temples fill the streets of Rishikesh. At any given moment, you can hear the reverberating chants of mantras and see yogis deep in meditation along the Ganga Ghats (broad steps leading down to the Holy River).

Made famous by The Beatles in the late 60s, Rishikesh has remained a magnet for New-Agers and spiritual pilgrims alike. And it’s no wonder. With breathtaking mountain views, heaps of ashrams, meditation and yoga classes galore, it’s a seeker’s daydream.

Curriculum

Siddhi Yoga’s foundation is a healing-focused therapeutic technique and workout program based on proper alignment, anatomical awareness and education.

200 hours yoga teacher training

 

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.

indian yoga anatomy teacher

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.

meditation chanting rishikesh

As for what you’ll learn throughout the course, the list is endless. But to give you an idea, we’ll cover:

  • Sequencing
  • Asana – alignment and modifications
  • Yoga philosophy/lifestyle
  • The Yoga Sutras
  • Different Types of Yoga including Hatha and Vinyasa
  • Yogic Eating and Ayurveda
  • Chakras
  • Pranayama
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Assisting

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.

pranayama rishikesh

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.

Learn the skills of true gurus

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.

Course Reviews

yoga teacher training review by manuela from united kingdom

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!!!!

yoga teacher training reviews by Chani Silva from Australia

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  🙏🏾 💕

yoga teacher training reviews by Donna from India

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!!!!

yoga teacher training review by melanie from australia

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!

yoga teacher training reviews by Hu Di from United States

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.

yoga teacher training review by rajendra from australia

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.

yoga teacher training reviews by Flavia Castello from UAE

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!!

yoga teacher training review by vanitha from malaysia

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.
