Detailed 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program

The course follows high-quality standards by including subjects, such as asanas, pranayamas, kriyas, chanting, mantra, meditation, Anatomy & Physiology, Philosophy/Ethics/Lifestyle, and other traditional yoga techniques. Besides that, Training is customized with a new focus on some other interesting practices listed below that are fundamental to teach Yoga in the proper way.

Emotional Rebalancing

Emotions play an extremely strong role in one’s life. However, we live in a society where we constantly have to suppress our emotions, which creates emotional blocks. What if something went wrong in the past can’t let us fulfill our quest for knowledge and inner mental wellness? We teach various techniques on “How to Clear Emotional Blocks”. The students firstly experience it first hand and once you learn how to do it on yourself first, you’ll be able to guide your students, helping them ease stress, anxieties, and the traumas. There is going to be some guided practice to understand the huge relationship between emotional accumulation in the body with thought patterns. With these techniques when combining with yoga practice, our graduates would really stand out in guiding people n the yogic path of true happiness.

Self-Healing Through Five (5) Elements

Naturopathy healing is one of the oldest forms of alternative medicine in India. During the course, you are going to learn about basic Naturopathy techniques using the 5 elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space). It not only helps in healing but also boosts your energies. This module offers a unique opportunity to learn how to reconnect through Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Space to rebalance the body and the mind.

Yoga Nidra and Relaxation Techniques

Yoga Nidra is a useful guided yogic practice for deep relaxation, emotional situations management, and stress relief. It is also called “Yogic Sleep” that helps one “to get in and look internally” in order to find the harmony of body, mind, and spirit. You pay close attention to the various parts of the body as you relax. The perception of the various parts is orchestrated by the yoga teacher with the will to create a shiny quiet and a state of deep relaxation. It resolves nervousness, irritability, treats colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and useful against menstrual disorders, dizziness, and hypertension.

Yogic Breathing Techniques

Breathing properly is key to a successful yoga practice. Practicing without the right breath, you will never be able to extract its true potential. As we know, moving with the breath is what can lead a yogi to internal massage, which helps to heal the organs and release tensions. Plus, several yogic breathing techniques are fundamental to deepening your spiritual practice. We will teach you these techniques and how to add them to your movement to gain a deeper experience.

Yoga Teacher Training Rishikesh FAQs

Q. Should I take this yoga teacher training if I don’t want to teach?

Please do! Yoga teacher training is a wonderful way to deepen and recommit to your practice.

Q. How can I Become a Yoga Instructor in India?

The first step is to do a 200 Hrs Yoga Alliance Accredited Yoga Teacher Training in India. If you have 25 days to spare then you can attend the residential 200-Hour TTC Program. Otherwise, you can go for the weekend course. After successful completion of a 200hrs curriculum from an RYS 200 Yoga School (Registered Yoga School at 200hrs level) with 200 hrs Yoga Certification, participants are eligible to get registered with Yoga Alliance, USA for a designation of RYT 200 (Registered Yoga Teacher at 200 hrs level). For more details please take a look at our article which is explaining more of How to Become a Yoga Instructor.

Q. How much is the average cost of a Teacher Training Course in India?

The average cost of a yoga instructor courses ranges from $1000 to $2500. However, some schools also charge $5000 and more. While selecting schools, many students make the mistake of thinking that low cost means low standards. But this is far from reality. Accommodation, Food, Duration of Certification and Location are the major four factors that genuinely influence the cost of TTCs. The low average cost of Indian TTC programs is not indicative of the quality. India has highly knowledgeable yoga gurus who are willing to share their skills with you.

Q. Do Yoga Teachers Make Good Money?

There are many factors to it. It depends upon where they work, how many classes they are teaching in a day, which city they are working in. Take a look at this article about How Much Do Yoga Instructors Make? in more detail.

Q. How long should you practice yoga before teacher training?

First of all, it would be good to start some form of exercise to increase your stamina and endurance. Of course, a consistent yoga practice would be ideal, but if not possible, any exercise is sufficient. This is because, during the course, you will be practicing yoga for at least four hours every day. So it is best if your physical body is already reasonably fit when the course begins. Check our youtube channel where we have prepared Yoga Warm UP and Yoga Stretches so that you can prepare your body for yoga teacher training.

Q. How can I reserve my spot?

Please fill up this form and we will email you the detailed offer letter. It will have all the details including payment options. You can pay and your spot is confirmed once we have received the payment.

Q. Do I need to get a visa and how to apply?

Yes, if you plan to stay fewer than 60 days, you’ll need an e-Visa. Your passport should also be valid for six months after the date of arrival.

Applying for a Visa is a very tricky and confusing process, especially for people who are traveling for the first time. But you don’t have to worry. Here we have covered all the necessary details.

Be sure your passport is valid for six months after the time of your arrival.

To attend training, you can use a normal tourist visa. If you are staying 60 days or fewer, you can also apply for an eVisa. You can apply for an eVisa 120 days before your arrival date.

e visa in india

Getting an Indian E–visa is easy and quick; however, it can also reduce your stay. The E–visa is processed within 72 hours, and you are required to apply for it at least four days before your departure. The E–visa cannot be extended, and you are only allowed to apply for it twice a year.

Except for the 17 major Indian airports, the E–visa users are not permitted to use any other arrival terminus. Your passport photos and bio must be scanned/uploaded. Once the procedure is completed, you can print out your E–visa. For application and further instructions, you can visit the following links:



If you are planning to stay more than 60 days, or your country is not under the eVisa list, you will need to get the normal tourist visa, which should be valid for six months. Apply one month before your arrival, at the very least.
