About us

The 500 hrs yoga teacher training in India aims to take your passion for learning authentic traditional yoga forward. The base yoga style of the course is Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow. However, the course will also give you a taste of many different styles of Yoga (Hatha, Restorative, Yin etc.) as well as include subjects like Pranayama, Kriyas and meditations. You will also receive an in-depth study of yoga philosophy, anatomy and physiology.

In the 500 hrs course, students will firstly be participating in a 200hrs course which is organized in Dharamsala or Goa centers, followed by the 300 hrs course.

This 200 hrs training will be followed by 300 hours Yoga Teacher Training in India. After successfully completing both the courses, one will receive a 500 hrs certificate of completion.

I had a wonderful and very intense time at Abhinam Yoga Center. Surrounded by a beautiful environment and lovely fellow future yogis Abhinam gave me the opportunity to grow a lot this past month. I am really thankful for everything I have learned from the whole Abhinam Team; they are all teaching from their hearts and in every class shared their unique energy with all of us. Also the school facilitates the knowledge it needs to continue the yogic path afterwards; they give recommendations for inspiring books and occasionally share articles from their personal lecture. Also the food and accommodation was fantastic. Every day they serve sattvic food: a combination of rice, dahl, cooked vegetables and fresh salad so your body gets the necessary support for the practice and is not too busy with heavy digestion. The accommodation is held nice and simple which makes it easy to disconnect after a day filled with practice and studying. Franzisca Rojas
