Personal Growth

During your Yoga Teacher Training, we aim to focus on your personal growth. You will be able to grow yourself on different layers: spiritually, mentally and physically. Through yogic philosphy, meditation practises and detoxification techniques (asana, pranayama and shatkarma), you will be able to release emotional weight as well. You will begin to feel more free and light.

Intense Practise

An intense practise is the foundation of your progress as a yoga teacher. Through a minimum of 5 hours asana practise per day, you will begin to elevate your yoga practise to the next level. Our teachers pay great attention to the right alignment and explanation of postures. Benefits, contraindications and adjustments are discussed for each asana.

Modification of Breath

The Breath is the key to yoga. When we are angry, we breathe fast. When we are relaxed, we breathe slower. Through conscious modification of our breathing pattern, we can remove negative thought patterns and enter into a state of peace and positivity. During your Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga India Foundation, you will be introduced to various transformational breathing techniques.

Professional Career

After completing your 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh with us, you will be given a Yoga Alliance Certification.  You can then register as a RYT 200 with Yoga Allince to obtain a career worldwide. After completing your 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh with us or your 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, you will also receive your Yoga Alliance Certification. You can then register as RYT 500.

Mental Clarity

Our mind is always working. That is normal. Sometimes, we feel very sad, angry or scared. Our modern societies have taught us to hold everything and be nice. However, an oppression in emotions leads to depression, stiffness and various diseases. Our Yoga Teacher Training Programs are designed to release energy blockages from your body and mind. Through secret meditation practises and alternative healing treatments, you will remove toxins, emotional pain and past trauma from your body and mind.

Optimum Health

Our kitchen staff prepares three delicious, nutritious Vegetarian Meals for you every day. Thorugh Ayurvedic herbs and food combinations, our bodies become balanced, energised and rejuvenated. A sattvic yogic diet will make you feel light, satisfied and ready to learn and practise. Seasonal meals combined with an optimized course schedule aim to introduce perfect health and well-being.

Individual Guidance

Yoga India Foundation stands for individual support amd guidance throughout your Yoga Teacher Training Program. Traveling to India alone can be overwhelming challenging sometimes. At Yoga India Foundation, you will soon feel „at home“ and make new friendships that will last forever. Our teachers and staff aim to listen to your needs and care for you 24/7.

Small Groups

Most Yoga School in India are packed with students. Usually around 40-60 people fit in one Training Program, Yoga Hall and Ashram. At Yoga India Foundation, we have decided to keep our ashram environment more familiar. Our maximum student number is 15. We believe that smaller groups contribute to a healthy and growthful learning outcome. During your Yoga Teacher Training, you will have enough space for yourself and feel part of our yoga family.

Individual Post-TTC Assistance

Completing a Yoga Teacher Training in India is intense and enriching. We know that our Yoga TTCs give you great inputs and insights.

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in India

Katharina Kopp

I just finished my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga India Foundation in Rishikesh, India. I had the most wonderful and transformational time here. The four-week course was very intense and gave me great insights into my own being, ways of thinking and living. I feel very blessed to have learnt so many great tools and techniques. The energy in our group was very beautiful. We all became very close friends and shared our first in-depth yoga journey together. I am glad I chose this school for my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. The teachers are very friendly, warm-hearted and helpful. They didn’t only teach and guide us but also became friends to us. Traveling to India by myself was a big thing to me, luckily the entire team of Yoga India Foundation took my fear and worries and helped me to become a more confident and strong woman. I am looking forward to sharing my new yoga knowledge with my students at home.

500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in India

Laura Fuchs

Yoga India Foundation was one of the three yoga schools that I originally picked. I somehow chose it because of the familiar and individual teaching approach and energy. After arrival, I felt immediately at ease. The ashram is very beautiful and sourrounded by the Himalaya mountains. My room was clean and cosy. I had a balcony and my own bathroom. My 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training took almost eight weeks. It was a long and valuable time for me. All teachers and staff were very caring and kind to me at any time. I learnt all about different asanas, meditation techniques, yogic cleasing, pranayama and ayurveda. I could have never imagined that it is possible to learn so much in such a short time. I came to India after graduating from bachelor’s degree. I feel like I learnt more about myself in those two months than in the the past 3 years. I can highly recommend the 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga India Foundation if you want to develop yourself further and grow mentally, physically and spiritually. I believe that this is the foundation of becoming a good yoga teacher.

Angelica Gomez

Yoga India Foundation is an amzing place for yoga, meditation and self-discovery. I joined the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Autumn 2017 and now look back at it with much respect and gratitude. The entire team and ashram atmosphere is very unique and inspiring. As the name suggest, you can create an excellent foundation of yoga in the birth place of Spirituality: India. I hope to do my 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training here next year.
