Yoga Teacher Training in India
Why would you consider Yoga Teacher Training in India?
Well, yoga is far more complex than an exercise for physical fitness and stretching tight muscles. In our modern society, yoga is often deconstructed to be only a shadow of its complete whole.
Yoga is a philosophy, art, and science which spans every area of life. Yoga is a holistic system of health, healing, and spiritual connection. We offer yoga teacher training in India based on these beliefs.
To study these in India, the homeland of Yoga and the deep mystical healing philosophies, only adds to your life changing experience.
Our teacher training courses revive the authentic potency of yogic wisdom. We teach the practice of yoga in its complete form so that it becomes a lifestyle, a way of life. Rather than just being a person who does some yoga, you can BE a yogi in the full sense of the word. By training in India, you are surrounded by that authenticity in every moment.
Our residential Yoga Teacher Training in India program is a fully immersive course that will allow you to experience yogic living in its entirety. From daily pranayama, meditation, and asana practice to the healthy sattvic diet, from philosophy classes to the art of teaching workshops, from kirtan singing to karma yoga – you will live and breathe yoga.
Whilst residing in a kind, loving and supportive yoga community, you will acquire all the necessary guidance to become a fully accredited yoga teacher certified by Yoga Alliance.
You will gain experience and confidence by practice teaching with your fellow trainees. We will equip you to grow into an astute yoga instructor capable of creating and leading your own classes.
By doing your yoga teacher training course in India, you are immersed in the original yoga culture.
Undertaking your teacher training here provides you with the opportunity for a spiritual experience that you will not gain in other countries.
By being in India you will receive an authentic yogic lifestyle and experiences. This includes exposure to profound natural surroundings, historically significant landmarks, and many spiritual traditions.
Plus training in India is often less expensive than in western countries.
By choosing Shree Hari Yoga School, you are choosing excellence, expertise, care, and devotion. Your training will be led by highly experienced and dedicated instructors. To keep the program intimate and focused, we only admit 12-15 students per training group. This allows for direct and devoted individual attention and guidance.
Undertaking a yoga course with us in India ensures teachings that are spiritually based, grounded in true yogic history and philosophy, and geared toward enhancing your personal practice and life journey. We strive to teach the authentic heart of yoga and hope to inspire our graduates to carry on this intention.
You will deepen your personal practice and re-connect with yourself spiritually, physically, and emotionally. By obtaining a Teacher Training certificate you will gain the freedom to travel the world and teach your passion to others, while also establishing a deep connection with a supportive international yoga family that will last a life time – and beyond.

Our yoga centers are ideal environments for practice, study, and peaceful relaxation.
Gokarna, one of India’s seven important Hindu pilgrimage centers, is nestled between the mountains and the Arabian Sea. Recognized as the legendary location where Lord Shiva emerged into the world from the ear of a cow, Gokarna has historically drawn visitors to its important Hindu temples and holy sites. More recently the nearby unspoiled beaches (Main Beach, Kudle Beach, Om Beach, & Half Moon Beach) have attracted western tourists seeking to escape the crowds.
Dharamsala is a picturesque mountain town nestled in the tranquillity of the Himalayan mountain range. Undertaking your yoga teacher training in Dharamsala provides a unique opportunity to explore diverse spiritual traditions in a profoundly beautiful environment surrounded by breath taking scenery. In the lush green surrounding mountains, you will find waterfalls, Hindu temples, and Buddhist stupas to inspire you.
Rishikesh is a beautiful holy city at the foothills of the Himalayan mountain range. The famous Gangees river flows through it, providing the city with a deeply spiritual ambience. Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Rishikesh are something special. Rishikesh is known as The Yoga Capital of the World, and it’s easy to see why! There are many ashrams, yoga schools and meditation centers, and many seekers and sadhus occupy the streets. It’s a pilgrimage town with beautiful nature and a deep spiritual connection – there is no better place to immerse yourself deep into yogic studies.
A beautiful, diverse part of India. When you find a good spot in Goa it is the perfect option for Yogis to relax and concentrate on practice. This part of paradise, on India’s Western shores, provides such a diverse and captivating mix of people, food, lifestyles, cultures, things to do, and religions that there really is something for everyone. You can spend endless sunshine-filled days with morning meditations and asanas at the beach and explore the gorgeous countryside and markets.
To start your yoga training you don’t need any prior experience. You can join 200 hr yoga training without completing 100 hr yoga teacher training. Shree Hari Yoga helps you to recover and have a proper yoga practice.
You will be provided a t-shirt from Shree Hari Yoga and it is compulsory to wear it during yoga practice.
