The aim of our yoga teacher training is for everyone to be an accomplished and qualified yoga practitioner and teacher yet suited to a style compatible with his or her environment. We achieve this through micro groups (our batch size is no more than 10 persons) so that there is a personal guidance and a 1-on-1 feel at all times, which not only lays the foundation of being a great practitioner but also lessens the distractions that divert the mind from the serious path of yoga teaching.

This yoga teacher training is a great self-leaning experience through which you will gain the tremendous benefits of yoga including the ability to relax and calm yourself at will. You will then be able to translate this into an effective teaching methodology for your students as you move towards becoming an accomplished teacher.

Rishikesh, at the foothills of the mighty Himalayas, has been revered as the world capital of yoga. The reason for this is that the sages who used to practice austerities in the Himalayas would come down periodically and establish their bases in the hostile months.

Also, pilgrims who wished to go on their pilgrimage deeper into the Himalayas would make this their starting point. This confluence also lead to the development of several Ashrams and Rishikesh came into being as the Ashram town.

Over the years Rishikesh has grown into a small but bustling town. Yet, the Ashram areas give the ambience of a small town village with tremendous spiritual energy. The mighty Ganges river flows by and the evenings are a delight to be on the banks with several aarti (lamp) ceremonies being held along the banks.

A teacher training program requires that indiscriminate and unhealthy eating be avoided. Unfortunately, this aspect is ignored by most schools, which results in students eating out and often falling sick due to poor hygiene standards. At Ajarya, we take care to include 3 fresh meals everyday within the course fee, so that students do not have to worry about where to plan their next meal.

Food is strictly vegetarian in line with the principles of yoga and sufficient variety is added, so that participants can experience different vegetables and fruits of the season. Food is fresh and made in hygienic conditions, which minimizes the occurrence of sickness. This single emphasis on fooding sets Ajarya Yoga Academy distinctively apart as a choice for a study stay.

There are also several eateries in Rishikesh. Food available is vegetarian in keeping with the spiritual leanings of the town and you will rarely find any alcohol. All of this makes for a unique cultural experience which delights most visitors to this place, including Westerners and people from all over the world.

There are other activities that visitors find truly enjoyable about Rishikesh. These include river rafting on the Ganges or camping by the riverside; short as well as longer mountain treks, as well as an experience at the world-famous Ananda Spa in the mountains.

There is also an Ayurveda and holistic healing centre within the premises for those who may like to experience Ayurveda massages and treatments. These are available for an additional fee.
