200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in India

Cathy Pow

You won’t believe what’s possible in one month. This place represents love, unity, growth and the real yogi lifestyle. Feeling beyond grateful for all the memories, challenges, support and wisdom that was passed on to me. A huge thank you to Bipin, Anki, Dharma and Girish for always being there for me and making me feel welcome and at home. Joining the 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training taught me about the beauty of creating union with myself, mind and body. I learnt special techniques on how to remove stress, stiffness and tension which I can take home and share with my students. The food cooked for us was so delicious, it was pure, sattvic and energizing. I felt better every day. A big thanks to Dr Vipul Arya as well for teaching me about Ayurveda, my body type and how to maintain it in balance. I am drinking my pitta tea everyday. If you are looking for the right yoga school, go with what feels right. For me, choosing Yoga India Foundation, was the best choice I could have ever wished for. I totally recommend this place.

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in India

Thomas Rosenberger

After studying medicine for 8 year, I thought of traveling to India and taking a break. I was looking for a way to calm myself down and learn about the ancient science of yoga as I believe it can be related to medicine as well. Yoga India Foundation was one of the first school that I saw online; course outline, schedule and syllabus seemed to be very great. I graduated from my 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training 8 weeks ago so now I had some time to reflect and review the course: The teachers are intelligent, corrective, caring and supportive people, some of them doctors, some of them university graduates, some of them swamis. I felt guided very well and had the feeling that everyone knows exactly what they are teaching. In my opinion, Yoga India Foundation is a well-established yoga ashram with excellent course content and a warm hearted energy.

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.Foundation is a well-established yoga ashram with excellent course content and a warm hearted

I had the most wonderful time at yoga India foundation. thank you so much to the entire team for making me feel so welcome and happy I really appreciate that your hospitality and kindness and your 24/7 availability. it was beyond my expectation that the food was always cooked freshly with a lot of love and deliciously prepared. I have completed my yoga teacher training in India 1 months ago and still fear the positive effects of the training. The teacher staff and entire team made me feel so welcome and where I taken care of.i will be forever grateful to have studied at this amazing school the location is simply amazing you are directly located at the national park and can see the Ganges river from across the side. there is also a little spa at the school so you can use your free time to take ayurvedic massages and feel even more relaxed.the yoga teacher training in India was really challenging because there were many hours of yoga everyday however it was well structured. overall I can recommend the school from the bottom of my heart and feel very happy that I chose the school. in life it's not always easy but I learnt many techniques to stay grounded and overcome issues by my own . I am excited to be teaching yoga now and sharing my new knowledge with my students back in Germany I hope to come to yoga India foundation again for my advanced 300 hour yoga teacher training in India mayaby I will find the time next year and can return a big thank you to Vipin Vipul Anrud Lakshmi for sharing your knowledge and sharing your secrets love and peace

If you are looking to study yoga in India, I can recommend Yoga India Foundation from my deepest soul. Traveling to India and learning the traditional yogic science, asana and Ayurveda left me with much clarity and joy. I did my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga India Foundation Ashram in Rishikesh which was the best thing I've done in my life so far. The teachers are simply amazing, so passionate, kind and respectful. I ate delicious vegan food which gave me energy for the classes. The ashram is located outside the busy area next to the nature reserve and river, it's so beautiful. I couldn't have asked for more so I wish to say a big thank you to the wonderful school and of course my fellow class mates! There was not a single thing that I didn't like, everyone took such good care of us while we were still challenged and pushed to our limits! I feel so excited and ready to teach now 🙂

Yoga India Foundation is a wonderful yoga school that helped me to open my heart, mind and entire being. I will forever be grateful for the amazing teachers who guided me through ups, downs, past present moments. I learn about the ethics of becoming a yoga teacher and gained a huge understanding, not only about yoga, but also about myself, life and relationship. the group energy was like a family, we became close friends and shared our special insights and growth. Thanks for making my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in India so memorable and unique, I can't wait to travel back to India one day. If you are looking for the right yoga school, I can recommend this place from my heart. I am an office worker, who (due to sitting a lot) came with the intention to connect to myself and remove my back pain. I stumbled upon Yoga India Foundation through a German Blog so I chose this school. A few more details about the accommodation, location and food: I liked the fact that the school is located in a not so busy part of Rishikesh. The local market is only 10 minutes away by rickshaw and we got the opportunities (every Sunday) to explore the surrounding like waterfalls, caves, temples and mountain paths. It really made us bond with each other and enjoy the amazing nature and jungles around. The food is so tasty, all the time. We received three meals per day, vegan and vegetarian according to our preference. There is always lots of fruits, vegetables and side dishes and some chutneys and salad as well. My room was cosy, with a balcony and amazing view to the river. Comparing this location with other places in Rishikesh, its one of the newest and highest standard types of accommodation with clean sheets, towels and blankets. The yoga hall is so big and has much glass so that you can have a fantastic view. I hope that my review can help some yogis to get a better idea of the Yoga India Foundation and make the right choice, like me 🙂 NAMASTÉ

My experience was amazing. Bipin, Anki and all the team are kind people that love Yoga. they open your mind to Yoga. yoga is more than exercise and now I have the knowledge that I want to do with this new knowledge. you should have open mind to learn. the only thing that I didn't like was that some students were really negative persons and disturbed our teaching training. so please.... OPEN MIND. Yoga is not what many people practice in the gym. Yoga is a philosophy of life. And Yoga India Foundation teaches it. ??

Es war eine richtig schöne Zeit für mich bei der Yoga India Foundation. Ich habe Freunde fürs Leben gewonnen und so viel über mich selbst gelernt. Meine Yogalehrer Ausbildung hat mich zu einem ruhigeren und gelasseneren Menschen gemacht. Ich bedanke mich ganz herzlich bei den Lehrern und Angestellten für das tolle Ambiente, das leckere Essen und die intensiven Yoga Einblicke. Ich hätte mir nichts besseres vorstellen können und bin total zufrieden. Unser Lehrer Manish hat immer gesagt, dass wir im Yoga (und Leben generell) auch mal hinfallen dürfen. Aber das nächste mal sollten wir dann “besser” fallen. Ich wünsche euch alles erdenklich Gute und hoffe, irgendwann noch einmal wiederzukommen. Vielleicht für meine Dreihunderter Yoga Ausbildung, wir werden sehen!

FAQs – Yoga Teacher Training Rishikesh

Ideally, you should have had a few yoga classes before starting the yoga teacher training. You don’t require a regular asana practice beforehand, but it is recommended to have a sincere interest to learn as well as commitment to complete the training. Western Yoga is very different from traditional yoga, so we invite you to learn all about it from A-Z. Our classes slowly build up so you will learn all about asana, pranayama, meditation etc. from a beginner to more intermediate level.

At Yoga India Foundation we teach traditional Yoga, also known as Hatha Asana and Ashtanga Yoga (Eight Parts) Philosophy. Our approach is to look at the individual and teach you how to create perfect health in your body and others. First, you have to understand the common ailments and problems nowadays. Once you understand this and know about the Benefits + Cautions of Asana & Pranayama Techniques, you can determine which techniques to apply to create well-being as well as physical and mental health.
Our goal is to teach you traditional yoga in its holistic, balance-creating and ancient scientific background. Ayurveda plays an important role too; that’s why we teach daily Ayurveda or Applied Ayurveda classes and provide one-on-one consultations by Dr Kumar throughout the course.

After completing our 200, 300 or 500 Hour Yoga Teacher Training course in India, you will be certified with a Yoga Alliance certification that allows you to teach yoga internationally without any restrictions.

So when choosing your Yoga Teacher Training make sure that its Yoga Alliance certified. You will require the Certification to obtain work is most countries.
