200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course in Rishikesh Certification

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course in Rishikesh will prepare you to teach yoga. It’s true purpose is firstly to consolidate your own personal yoga practice in daily life, since you can only truly share yoga on the basis of your own experience. This course focuses on the traditional Vedic and Tantric approach to the entire spectrum of yogic practices, rather than any specific asana-oriented school of yoga.

This course is designed to immerse students in the physical, mental, and spiritual states of yoga, so that they emerge as students and teachers of both a physical practice, and personal wisdom. It goes beyond learning how to teach others to practice yogic techniques, by preparing you to live your yoga in every moment of every day. It draws on both the ancient theory of yoga, and modern knowledge of the body and mind.

  1. No previous experience in yoga is required.
  2. This course is suitable for anyone who is open-hearted and open-minded, and seeking to develop a foundation in yoga, or expanding their existing understanding for a greater depth of experience in yoga – firstly through their personal practice, and then through the potential of sharing with others.
  3. The traditional Indian methods of teaching this ancient science may differ from what you imagine, so you need to remain open to whatever is being offered.
  4. You will not be asked to believe anything, only to consider, and participate in, all the ancient methods that have been tested through time; but if you expect this to be simply a variation of an exercise program which has just changed its name to yoga, then choosing the Vedic Yoga Centre for your studies may not be the right decision for you.
  5. You should apply for this course only if you are ready and willing to experience the teachings as offered in the traditional way, and only if you are seeking to learn about yoga as a holistic science. You should be genuine in your desire for adapting and adjusting your existing understanding of the yogic journey.
