About This Event

200 hours yoga teacher training course is a specially designed yoga teacher training course which imparts ashtanga teaching methodology. Every yoga style has its own class routine, asana sequences among other things which one needs to learn to take classes in that style.

Ashtanga yoga being one of the most popular styles of yoga gathers a lot of students for you when you try to setup your own yoga studio. Planning a class in ashtanga class needs some special routines and has a different series of sequences when compared to other styles like hatha yoga or Iyengar yoga.

Specific teacher training helps you learn class plan, asana sequence in ashtanga style, the course includes practices of hatha style as well which helps you understand the difference between the two oldest and most popular forms of yoga.

The course is in line with the Yoga Alliance curriculum and is aimed to transform students with an intense training of yoga, meditation, pranayama and vedic sciences.

I attended a 15 days yoga retreat in the IYMS Rishikesh and the experience was incredible! I learnt a lot from all the teachers, people really special! I hope to come back soon to them! - Alessandra Venturin Namaste, I’m Radharani from Italy. I came to Rishikesh many times. I joint last year in 200h TTC course and was amazing (contact info blocked) teachers are great with full of knowledge and very great persons too.The ashram is very clean and the rooms very comfortable .Atmosphere is very spiritual and people always kind ready to help you. I’m looking for next teacher training course with IYMS Rishikesh. - Radharani Clausi I have attended a yoga teacher training at IYMS Rishikesh in July 2017. I can clearly say it is very authentic – people are nice and kind, teachers are great and inspiring, food is nutritious and generous in quantity and lastly the housing is clean, comfortable and adequate for an Ashram. I would recommend going there for a training or a retreat. It is truly a great and authentic Indian experience! Namaste! - Jan Hammer I had a lot of experience in hatha yoga before coming to India but I realised how little I knew through the knowledge and dedication of the staff. They are thorough in their teaching, engaging and good fun. I only did a week retreat but would definitely comes back to further my 200 ytt that I have from home. - Caoimhe O'sullivan
