Our Curriculum meets the standard of Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. We are happy that our curriculum makes us one of the Best Yoga Teacher Training centers in India. Here is the syllabus of what you will learn in this course.

The Teachers’ Training Course (TTC) is a four-week intensive course, based on the ancient Gurukul system of India where teachers and students live together. You will be in a traditional atmosphere and closely interact with our experienced and dedicated teachers and staff who themselves are immersed in the yogic lifestyle. Connected to an ancient teaching lineage (guru parampara), passed down from guru to disciple through thousands of years, the curriculum is extensive and covers both theory and practice. Devotional practices, traditional in India, are an integral part of the Course.

Come and develop the skills to teach yoga asana, gaining a solid grounding in the classical yoga tradition, and at the same time deepen your spiritual connection to yoga and open yourself to profound inner transformation.
