During this advanced teacher training course, you will build upon the foundational 200-hour standard course to allow you to hone your skills as a yoga practitioner and teacher.

The villa is built in the traditional Kerala style using rammed earth. This eco-friendly method of construction results in a structure that is naturally cool throughout the year. The large central courtyard acts as a focal point of the villa allowing for natural light and ventilation. The villa is simply decorated yet has all the comforts of home. The house is sufficiently away from the main road to keep out the noise and ensure almost total silence.
Upon completion of the course, you will receive an internationally recognized diploma from the Himalayan Yoga Institute. The title you receive upon completion of the standard course is ‘Yoga Sikshaka’ (yoga teacher), whereas upon completion of the advanced course you receive the title of 'Yoga Vaidya' (expert of yoga).
A reading list will be sent to you upon registration.
