About our Teacher Trainings
Rishikesh Yoga Valley offers 100, 200 and 300 hours Yoga Teacher Trainings.
Rishikesh Yoga Valley is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance. That means our 200 and 300 hours Teacher Training Program follow and match the standards of Yoga Alliance International (USA) and are 100% accredited with, so that our Students, who absolved our Training successfully are allowed to become a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance (RYT) and can teach worldwide.
Our Teacher Trainings focus on the traditional teachings of Hatha, Ashtanga, Sivananda and Iyengar Yoga.
Our 100 hours Teacher Training is in online and offline version designed yet certificated by Rishikesh Yoga Valley, not by Yoga Alliance. If you are not considering teaching, yet want to get into a Yogic Way of Life and deepen your yoga practice and understanding, then this course is for you. Or you are not able to accomplish the 200 hours Training in one time then you can split it into two parts. After completing two 100 hours Trainings we will certificate you with RYT 200 from Yoga Alliance.
Our 200 hours Teacher Training is also provided in online and offline form. It guides you from the proper theoretical understanding of Yoga in its traditional meaning and how to apply it for our modern day life to manage advanced asanas and their adjustment for your own practice and teaching skills.
The 300 hours Teacher Training is a follow up of the 200 hours Training, which we provide only offline, since we want to give you our full presence and guide you to fully embed Yoga in your Life and specialize your Teaching style according to the authentic traditional yogic concepts and practices and match them with your unique way of being and potential.
As Yoga has become a trend for health, keeping the body in good shape and stress reduction, focusing mostly on its physical aspect, our mission is to especially remind of the traditional holistic meaning of Yoga for uniting body, mind and soul.
That doesn’t mean we are not honoring the physical amazing benefits of Yoga … we love them … yet there is much MORE … the essence of Yoga is about Life itself, unleashing our full human Potential!
In our Teacher Trainings we guide you step by step to learn about the traditional way of Yoga and experience its positive effects within your own system while practicing with us and living a Yogic Way of Life, aligned with Nature.
You can not only deepen your asana practice but understand the importance of taking control for your own system and how to unlock your true Potential when you are able to listen to your Inner Voice.
Only if we manage to understand YOGA in its essence for ourselves we are able to spread its Light into the world and “teach”.
And for that we guide you with all the practical and theoretical knowledge you need.
Start your Teacher Journey with us, and be ready for an unforgettable Adventure into Joy, Bliss and inner Peace to build your wings for spreading the Light of Yoga in an authentic and your unique way!
