Abhinam Yoga Teacher Training Center in Dharamsala

About This Center

Sitting in the shadows of the Dhauladhar ranges of Himalayas, the beautiful mountains frame a most breathtaking, pristine backdrop for a city whose name roughly translates as ‘spiritual dwelling’. Fitting, as it has played home to the Dalai Lama, and many Tibetans seeking solace post-uprising in the mid-20th century. Many have made the pilgrimage to this captivating, spiritual place; it is not difficult to see why so many have been drawn to it. 

Abhinam Yoga School in Dharamsala is located among the clouds in Himalayas, taps in to this abundance of energy. One cannot help but completely immerse themselves in their practice, their learning, their sense of ‘self’.

"Amazing, challenging, intense, blissful , life transforming 4 weeks at 200h YTTC " I had a great experience at Abhinam yoga center during my YTT200 in Dharamkot last May. My initial purpose to deepen my own practice accomplished even more than I had expected. I discovered a new passion in life; calling it some sort of a reincarnation once this fantastic journey in India started. A perfect mix with all the ingredients present that made this YTT the journey of my life: yoga teaching, food and accommodation, breathtaking views, fantastic people, a very inspiring environment, Buddhist-Hinduism and heavenly peace. Namito, Maki and Riya were excellent, inspiring teachers who pushed me to explore more when it came to yoga and to deepen my commitment to it. Namito’s excellent medical background as an orthopedic surgeon gave me instant confidence and helped me through great yoga foundations. Both Namito and Maki motivated me to go beyond, even within my limitations and despite my injury of my upper left arm caused by a serious skiing accident in March of 2013. Thanks to their perfect anatomical knowledge, going into asana without harm has always been possible. I would highly recommend Abhinam school for anyone with deep love for yoga and for India, even beginners such as myself, who wish to do an in-depth study of asanas and pranayama, meditation and yoga philosophy with highly qualified and dedicated teachers. Thank you to my teachers and my fellow students. Love and blessings to you all. Namaste नमस्ते - Beatrice
