How the training works

Practically, Pokhara Yoga School and Retreat Center prefera the students who completed 200 hours of teacher training to come for this course.

However, if you have completed your previous training in a different school or style, please email your yoga teacher training certificate and syllabus of what you learnt, to ensure that you are prepared for the highly challenging advanced teacher training, in both self-practice and teaching careers.

If Pokhara Yoga School and Retreat Center feels that your previous training doesn’t include what is considered standard syllabus, you may be asked to come for a two-week Intensive yoga course, as a preparation for the 300 hour yoga teacher training in India, which can be challenging if you don’t have the physical and spiritual background that was imparted in the 200 hours training.

Who cannot come?

  • People with high blood pressure
  • People with any heart or brain-related medical conditions
  • People with any past injuries to neck, shoulders, and knees (or any eight major joints in fact)
  • People with any past injuries or medical conditions with spine or chronic backache
  • Pregnant women

For any other chronic or serious medical condition, please email Pokhara Yoga School and Retreat Center before registration.

General rules

  • Regular homework should be completed
  • All classes are mandatory to attend
  • As a part of the evaluation procedure, there will be a final exam both theory and practical
  • Pokhara Yoga reserves the right to disqualify any students at any time during the teacher training couse for misconduct or breaking the rules

Course information

Yoga asana

Yoga asanas can help with the recovery and management of many common diseases and disorders. This class will provide students with an introduction to the anatomy and pathology of common health issues that can be dealt through diet, asana, and pranayama practice.

In recent times, a large majority of people are seen switching to organic and holistic options for their physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Individuals are mostly making lifestyle alterations that can have a positive influence on their lives.

Yoga asanas are a key element of adopting a ‘Sattvic’ lifestyle and has several underlying benefits to it. Some of the commonly known physical benefits of asanas include improving flexibility, strength and balance. Its mental benefits include easing anxiety and stress.

It has several other benefits such as improving conditions for asthmatics and helping manage a slew of chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, bronchitis and more. Regular yoga practises increases mindfulness of body and helps have better control over the breathing cycle.

Asana practice

One of the key aspects of the 300-hour yoga teacher training is asana practice. Yogic postures comprise three hours of the daily schedule. Some of the other important benefits of asana practice are:

  • Improved muscle strength and tone
  • A balanced metabolism
  • Better cardio and circulatory health
  • Improved athletic performance

At the Pokhara Yoga School Nepal, you get to master the form of each of your asanas and you’ll also receive detailed instructions on the benefits of practising each asana. Complications and contraindications for these positions as well as alternate asanas will also be taught to help you attain mastery of your yogic posturing.

Yoga anatomy

Students will learn anatomy and physiology relevant to yoga in order to strengthen their classroom explanations, cues, and corrections of asana. If you aim at becoming a yoga practitioner, it is vital to understand the functioning of the human body.

As mentioned earlier, asanas have several underlying benefits to the body, and understanding the body helps you understand which asanas to practice to strengthen each part of the body.

Yoga involves stretching which lightens and re-aligns the muscle fibres, a strong understanding of the anatomy will help you be more attuned to your body and the changes happening in it.


Yoga philosophy will cover the history and science behind the study of yoga such as the understanding of the five elementary principles of yogic practice; breathing, proper exercise, relaxation, diet and meditation.

Part of the 300-hour yoga teacher training, the yoga philosophy class aims at equipping you with in-depth knowledge and understanding of yoga not just in terms of postures, but the ‘why’ behind them. This class will prepare students to study and understand Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.

Once a week, students will lead a discussion reflecting on the week’s readings. Before class, students should write down one question on a notecard directly related to the day’s reading and give this to the teacher at the start of class. This is aimed at improving classroom engagement and retention of the day’s teachings.
