Once you’ve learned more about the culture, it’s time to choose a destination for your teacher training course. A vast country, you’ll be able to find top-notch yoga training almost anywhere in India. However, the styles vary according to the region and the instructors. This is why choosing the right course for you depends on your needs and preferences.

For example, if you want to be truly immersed in all aspects of yoga, on or off the mat, you’ll likely enjoy training in Rishikesh. A traditional approach can be found in Goa, as well, but the style of teaching is more laidback.
