The spiritual energy that floods all aspects of life at Rishikesh can also be experienced at Guru Yog Peeth. The environment inside our Ashram near Laxman Jhula infuses you with the same energy. Not only will you be able to find answers to what has been evading you but will find direction. Exploring your inner strengths during the 200 hours yoga teacher training will enrich you and prove helpful when you draw from your yoga training to instruct your own students.
Guru Yog Peeth has one aim in mind and that is to produce creative and inspiring yoga teachers. The traditional yoga we teach here is based on the five points of yoga asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy and anatomy. Our asana techniques and pranayama practice are equally compelling and you will be able to nurture your own practice with the help of our expert instructors. The concentrated four week training changes you and draws on your strengths and improves on your personal practice.
Our well-developed yoga teacher training course at Guru Yog Peeth is internationally certified by Yoga Alliance and the certification is recognised and valid globally. On the successful completion of the 200 hour course you will become a certified 200 hour yoga teacher and can register with Yoga Alliance USA. The 200 Yoga Teacher Training Course experience will enable you to set up your own class, develop the course and run your own classes within the bounds of safety to prevent any injury to your students.
When learning yoga outside of India there are always gaps in your yoga learning because there are certain aspects of yoga that can only be explained by Indian instructors. Booking into Guru Yog Peeth will enable you to have your questions answered by experienced spiritual guru's. Your stay will be comfortable as our accommodation is clean and spacious and the rooms overlook the himalayan foothills. We provide sattvic food because that is most conducive to yoga practice.
The 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training is a four week course which will be intensive, enlightening and bring you a more comprehensive understanding of yoga practices. No matter which part of the world you come from, and what your views on yoga were so far, you will find something to take back home with you when you come to our ashram at Rishikesh.
