Ashtanga yoga

This 200-hour teacher training program includes series of Ashtanga yoga in accordance with the series of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore and some parts of the second series known as Nadi Shodhana. Ashtanga means eight limbs of yoga, which is a path towards the internal purification and attainment of the universal truth. The asanas will incorporate ujjai breath and bandhas (energy locks) and the use of Vinyasa and Tristhana. Vinyasa involves synchronization of the breathing and movements. This synchronization in the asanas heats the blood, cleans it and makes it thinner for much better circulation. The asana are taught through the different series of backbends, folding poses and inversions.

Hatha yoga

You will be taught all asanas of Hatha yoga from the simple to the advance. It is often called as a forceful yoga as it involves a lot of physical efforts. The teachers will concentrate on the proper formation and practice of different asanas and breathe control and will move towards building the energy in the subtle channels known as nadis. The asanas will loosen the stiff joints and soothe the muscles and make the body flexible. Hatha yoga will help remove all the obstacles, for moving towards pratyahara (sense withdrawal), dharna (concentration), dhayan (meditation) and samadhi (balance).

Yoga philosophy

This 200-hour yoga teacher program includes an in-depth knowledge of yoga philosophy, giving you deeper insight into what is yoga and how it can make you spiritually connected and give you physical and mental benefits. Through the philosophical knowledge, you will learn the religious principles of yoga including the Vedic knowledge. This would serve as a base to enter into a true spirit of yoga and what it is to attain the yogic way of life. You will feel a religious flavor and know how to attain love and purity in life.

    "Learning about the spiritual side of yoga was so wonderful. It is easy to learn asanas, but the karma driven lifestyle is the real teacher. And Pranayama was very beneficial because it is not studied or taught enough in the west. Most of the teachers were very knowledgeable and wonderful instructor. Ayurveda-amazing. Philosophy- Great, Pranayama- Perfect, Anatomy- Good, Mantra- An unexpected and lovely addition to the course. The balance was very good between lectures Vs. Experiential training. My stay was very nice. The food was good. Every Soup was amazing!!!! Thank you for everything."

    "Most useful thing i found about training was yoga classes, anatomy, alignment& adjustment, pranayama, ayurveda. These classes were very interesting. Teachers and their teaching methods were very nice. I want to say a big thank you to the teachers, who took time to explain things to me. It was very kind when some of them did answer the question also after the class; to be honest I didn’t expect that when I came here. I found a very good balance between lectures and practical learning. The staff was exceptionally helpful and nice, and I felt that I became a part of their family. Food was delicious, healthy and with lots of fruits. I was very happy with food."

    "Everything was useful in 200 hrs teacher training at akshi yogshala. It was so brilliant and important and such an eye opner.but still if I must pick one thing only yhen it would be pranayama classes, the thing we learnt there was beyond everything that I have ever read or heard in my life. If only we actually practiced the things we have learnt, we could transform our lives up side down.. the knowledge we received in anatomy and pranayama was quiet interesting. Discovering that we have have been doing the basic things like sitting and breathing wrong all our lives. It makes us realize how little we know ourselves and our bodies and how much we need to learn. Once again I loved it all. Every teacher knew his/her subject very well. They know what they are teaching and they are more than willing to answer any question or curiosity we come up with. The best point of all the teacher is that they don’t at all judge us for not knowing something but rather encourage us to open up and ask questions. They are not teaching with the intention some how just kill time on make money, but rather they are teaching with the genuine intention of teaching us something important, sharing their knowledge. The balance between lecture vs experimental learning was perfect. My stay was really awesome. I am like 100% satisfied with everything. rooms are neat, terrace is huge, light and fans are always connected to invertor( so you could have electricity all the time), and rooms are really airy which was a huge relief in this summer. I also loved the fact that you could have tea any time you want. I also appreciate that while I was sick staff here were concerned enough to take me to the doctor. Food was indeed good and healthy, I enjoyed the food I was loved that there was no boundary or limit on anything. From a yoga point of view it was a ideal diet. All the staff is helpful and familiar that if there is something you don’t eat and we want something else, they make their best efforts to arrange that for you. I think the training was great enough itself. It was one of the best experience I have been through. Thank you!"

    "These 200 hours had been a great experience for me. I had learned a lot and know how much importance yoga has in our life, which we had almost forgotten. All the sessions were great as each yoga teacher would personally take pains in teaching us different poses and would make sure that we are doing each asana correctly. The excursion and retreat programs were even more rejuvenating and exciting."

    "Those 28 days had truly transformed me. I am now wholesome me; bold, beautiful and confident. I am always calm and fresh, more wise and smart. I have opened the closed faculties to amaze the world with my work. Yes, I have become much more energized, and what I do and say, the words and ideas would spontaneously float through my mind. This is what Yoga gave me and I am proud of it."

    "During the course asana classes and pranayama were true eye opener. The course was very intense, which was good. The practical teaching, all of them were great (especially Pandey Ji). As they just brought all of us outside of our comfort zones and put we back in shape. The theoretical classes were good. I loved the space and the facilities. Food in general was very good and well planned. I loved every minute of this course. It certainly changed my life. You can tell all the teachers have a lot of knowledge in their field so it is a massive amount of information inputs. Thank you guys for all your support.-"

    "It was the rarest moment for me to spend 200 hours in Akshi Yogashala. The environment of Yogashala was highly spiritual and disciplined. All students had to follow the strict code of conduct. The lessons were also great taught by the highly experienced teachers. We really learned a lot from the school which we cannot forget for our whole life."

    "which was good. The practical teaching, all of them were great (especially pandey ji). As they just brought all of us outside of our comfort zones and put us back in shape. The theoretical classes were good. I loved the space and facilities. Food in general was very good and well planned. I loved every minute of this course. It certainly changed my life. You can tell all the teachers have a lot of knowledge in their field so it is a massive amount of information inputs. Thank you guys for all your support."

    "Every yoga session was overwhelming for me. I learnt the art of yoga in depth after joining the 200 hours yoga training school Akshi Yogshala in Rishikesh. The teachers are extremely positive and content, which is yet another great fact I learned. We got a family atmosphere and the best part of it was I made many friends, and overall Indian food which was prepared by the Indian chef was quite delicious."

    "My joining of Akshi Yogashala’s one week yoga retreat program in Rishikesh was the best choice of my life. We were learning yoga in the nature’s paradise, amidst the mesmerizing landscapes, where the river Ganga gushes through the ravines and greenery refreshes the soul. And the food that that we would get was really a treat. This one week was for us camping, learning and adventure all in one."

    "The short classes: "

    "Hatha, Ayurveda, Teaching Methodology – really added a lot to the picture and completed the learning experience. I am so happy that I chose AKSHI YOGASHALA. It has everything you are looking for in a yoga teacher training course i.e. small group, excellent teachers and great environment to grow and develop in. It is clear that a lot of thoughts has been put into creating a well balanced, constructive schedule that encompasses many of the essential elements of yoga. The size of the class really makes all the difference when you are doing hard on learning and the fact is that the course is limited to 13 students really tells a lot about how much our individual group is important to the school. I came to this school with a very narrow understanding of yoga and I am leaving with an incredible tool-kit to carry with me on my long journey. I received full attention and support from my all teachers when I needed it. Everyone shared such great knowledge and dedicated a lot of time and attention to make sure we really understand and feel comfortable with the knowledge passes on to us. If I had to choose a school again, it would have been AKSHI YOGASHALA. Especially compared to other schools and from conversations with other students. It is clear that AKSHI has the interest of its students in mind and is maintain a very high standard for school for the students. Balance was too good between lectures vs. experiential learning. I loved the stay. LOVED MY ROOM! Incredible staff, the teachers, the program. I felt very comfortable here. Food was really great. I loved everything and I am very thankful that any request and adjustment we had were fully taken into account."

  • Review by Rajani Bala from India

    "Everything was useful in 200 hrs teacher training at Akshi Yogshala. It was so brilliant and important and such an eye opener, but still if I must pick one thing only then it would be pranayama classes, the thing we learned there was beyond everything that I have ever read or heard in my life. If only we actually practiced the things we have learned, we could transform our lives up side down.. the knowledge we received in anatomy and pranayama was quiet interesting. Discovering that we have have been doing the basic things like sitting and breathing wrong all our lives. It makes us realize how little we know ourselves and our bodies and how much we need to learn. Once again I loved it all. Every teacher knew his/her subject very well. They know what they are teaching and they are more than willing to answer any question or curiosity we come up with. The best point of all the teacher is that they don’t at all judge us for not knowing something but rather encourage us to open up and ask questions. They are not teaching with the intention some how just kill time on make money, but rather they are teaching with the genuine intention of teaching us something important, sharing their knowledge. The balance between lecture vs experimental learning was perfect. My stay was really awesome. I am like 100% satisfied with everything. rooms are neat, terrace is huge, light and fans are always connected to converter( so you could have electricity all the time), and rooms are really airy which was a huge relief in this summer. I also loved the fact that you could have tea any time you want. I also appreciate that while I was sick staff here were concerned enough to take me to the doctor. Food was indeed good and healthy, I enjoyed the food I was loved that there was no boundary or limit on anything. From a yoga point of view it was a ideal diet. All the staff is helpful and familiar that if there is something you don’t eat and we want something else, they make their best efforts to arrange that for you. I think the training was great enough itself. It was one of the best experience I have been through. Thank you!"

    "Great place, great teachers."

    ""

    "It was nice surprise for me to see the facilities of Akshi Yogashala. It is located in a nice surrounding, it's garden is organized and providing a nice, friendly environment with all its trees, plants and flowers. The rooms are cosy, clean, big and comfortable enough for longer stay. Teachers are really great, they introduced deep knowledge both in theory and practice of yoga. All the personnel in the Ashram were helpful and tried their best to meet various individual needs of the students."

    "All in all the Akshi Yogashala is a great place, courses are great value. I surely recommend to everyone wishing to learn more about yoga."

    "Unforgettable Experience. Lifetime Friends through Practice!"

    ""

    "I completed the 200 hour teacher training at Akshi Yogashala at the end of 2015. I had just one month to spend in India and I could not think of a better way to invest my time, energy, and money. I left not only with a vastly improved practice reinforced by the fundamentals of traditional Yoga, but also relationships with fellow students, teachers, staff, and local Indian neighbors that will last a lifetime. I highly recommend this program for anyone interested in a genuine, immersive, formative introduction to the real roots of Yoga and an experience that they will never forget!"

    "All Classes best of choices. I loved all the subjects. Teachers were so professional. Ashtanga Class was amazing, but so fast for me to learn all the asanas and proper poses. I really enjoyed every single thing. This is a special thanks and gratitude to all people working in Akshi Yogashala. You were amazing guys."

    "The Yoga Classes were the most overwhelming for me. One of my aim was to develop my asanas practice and it has improved a lot by the end of the course. Anatomy, pranayama and adjustment as well. Teaching was done in a professional manner. Teachers showed deep knowledge and openness towards questions. All in all I am very satisfied, got a lot from course. I really appreciate the patience of teachers and the attitude they showed towards us."

    "Teachers experience I think most useful about the training. All staff are very supportive, teachers are very good they know how to treat with the students like with beginners or experience holders. I like the teaching style and teachers, all teachers are very intelligent and have a lot of experience. I have learned a lot in one month. Stay is very comfortable with all facilities and all staff are very supportive. Food is really very healthy and good. I would like to continue this when I am back home. "

    "These 200 hours stay gave me many memorable experiences and the lessons I learnt increased my potentialities and capability in me to teach Yoga back at home.Teachers were very helpful and showed considerable patience. Each moment was a new learning experience and each day would begin with a positive note and new challenge. Even in theoretical lessons, there was some experimental learning.  Stay was also very wonderful, we all lived all like a family and besides I made many friends.  I could not have got anything more in my life.  "

I have shed all my weaknesses and became a better person. The traditional yoga practices really helped me to shape my practice in my home.  In each class there was something new to learn and I enjoyed learning from each teacher.  The accommodation has been superb and Food delicious. Overall it had been a great experience. "

    "Few years back I was living in a state of depression, it was difficult to perform my daily chores, but the sudden turn came in my life when my friend showed me a way and I landed up in Akshi Yogashala in Rishikesh to join Yoga classes. The day I joined Yogashala, my outlook towards life changed. I became complete stress- free and my personality totally changed. All the wonderful teachers and staff gave me a new lease of life through their sweet words, love and teaching standard. I found Ashtanaga Yoga and Yoga philosophy very interesting. Any problem we would face the staff would immediately help us. Yogi Vivek is an amazing teacher and his style of teaching impressed me a lot. If you are all considering doing Teachers Training course in Yoga I suggest you to join Akshi Yogasahala in Rishikesh."

    "I feel like I learned a lot and was able to develop my personal practice. I do also feel quite ready to go home and start teaching in the west. The physical practice was intense, and there was a lot of information, but I never felt like it was too much at any point or too overwhelming. I think all the teachers are great. They all have their own style and every one of them was inspiring in their own way. I learned a lot in all the classes. The only thing I would change if I could was the order of the morning classes. Great. I am very happy and feel like I learned as much as I could have in one month. I will definitely comeback one day for the 300hrs TTC."

    "Everything I found very useful in the training. But the anatomy explanation for the physical part.Philosophy for the spiritual for those who are thinking only of yoga as as doing asanas. Maintaining traditional values to keep a true foundation of yoga, was the great part of this training.It was great teaching from all teachers each one with there own background but coming to the same ground. All very knowledgeable and willing to share.Our stay was very nice, clean, well maintained, everything working, great food! Nice people, very attending to everyones need and even more! Hot water perfect. Food! Very great cook, healthy, every now and then some nice Sweets."

    "Everything each day bought something different. It was really useful. I learnt so much from this TTC about my body. All knowledge in general was very useful. For me as I had not studied much before coming here. The teachers were Absolutely amazing! Each teacher had the perfect personality to what they were sharing with us. I really appreciated the patience and calmness each teacher had. It was great to have such great humor added into the classes- Viveks stillness to Pandayjis powerful breathing to Swami Jis child like laughter to Prashants gentle yet strong teaching to Pankajs words about listening to your teacher rather than body every moment I was learning something new from all the knowledgeable teachers. Thank you so much to each and everyone at AkshiYogashalafor creating a very memorable month that I will cherish for the rest of my life."

We have learnt more postures in hatha and Alignment.VevekArya: (Anatomy Teacher) Amazing! Great description of concepts so that everyone can understand.Very helpful.Swami Atma (Mediation Teacher) I wish he could come home with me to meditate and relax."

    "Teaching and teachers are amazing. I found all of them have a lot of knowledge about yoga, they all are very wise and great yogis. Though I have missed or I would have liked to have some woman teacher.Lectures and experiential learning was well balanced. Even in some theoretical lectures as anatomy we have had experiential learning, which was very good for us to know more about our own body.The overall evaluation of teachers, teachings, food, accommodation and people is positive."

    "Certainly all classes were important and really useful, but the importance of keeping our students safe just cant be overstated. Thus it was great to understand the basic bodily functions for yoga practice.The training was great and all teachers just lovely. We got an introduction to all important topics by teachers who were not only knowledgeable and skilled in teaching, but also passionate about their subjects. It was a great pleasure to pick everyones brains and I feel like they shared great life lessons with us every day. Not only related to yoga, but also to the human experience in a widest sense.Food was delicious, no complaints at all."

    "The most useful for me was learning the traditional yoga practices and how it is really done (the foundations) really helped shaped the way I will practice yoga, balancing with the west practices. The teachers are the highlight of the program.Swami Ji was of course the most beautiful person I could listen to all day. His stories and his presence was amazing. Vipin is so full of knowledge that we would really benefit from other classes taught by him (not just asanas). I enjoyed his teachings and his feedback sessions. Prashant is a great teacher and quite hilarious. I enjoyed his classes as well."

    "Fantastic division of all the subjects, instructors spoke clearly, the timetable was thoughtfully put together, facilities were good, the mini yoga asana charts were very helpful to have and bring home. Having a large helpful staff was great. In terms of classes, the adjustment/alignment classes, as well as anatomy were extremely helpful and beneficial.We overall are very pleased with our teachers and their practices. Prashant and Vipin were fun, energetic, informative and personable. They thought us so much, and really helped us grow, and expand in our asana practice. The mantra teacher was great and very patient. Vivek was super clear, helpful with all questions, and serious, but brought a great dynamic to the team. Swami was incredible, really enriched our experience, and his nightly meditation were so magical, and we enjoyed them the most. Tylak was also wonderful, very funny man, but at times it would have been helpful for him to unite more terms on the board, or clearing share the breathing terms ant there variations."

    "Everything was very useful. I really enjoyed the Pranayama as I only knew a few techniques. Anatomy was very interesting and very practical in relating to asanas. Teaching and teachers were excellent, top class! All the teachers are wise and very dedicated in their subjects and their Indian culture while very aware and in touch with western culture so it was a nice balance. They were very natural and caring and were able to answer all our questions.At the start I found it difficult to sleep because it was so noisy but by the second week Id gotten used to it and felt extremely safe and looked after throughout.Food was delicious, especially breakfast. Would have more chocolate balls!"

    "I found all the classes are useful.Swami Atma (philosophy and meditation): kindhearted, creating a safe and loving environment to growth, placing gently seeds inside me without any kind of pressure, his mentorship resonates on multiple layers within me.Vivek (anatomy): His lunar energy balances solar energy of Vipin and Prashant, the mixture of practical and theoretical teaching; scientific mind and precise intelligence; appreciated his rational style so much to balance the spiritual & philosophical work.Vipin (hatha, alignment): straight forward teaching and speaking; multiple of practical tips for us how to create the habits as a teacher; realistic approach; breaking down the Asana in small pieces so we can engage the body awareness.Staying was a unique experience; there is no place Id rather be, not feeling homesick for one second!"

    "The most useful was adjustment in asanas and deep knowledge about yoga, ayurveda and spiritual life. Im quite satisfied with teachers they gave us a lot of new information and its an inspiration for my self-education. I got all the answers from the teachers and they are all very interesting and spiritual and educated people. There were a lot of interesting people from all over the world who have same interests as me and also there were teachers who can share their deep knowledge with us. Balance of lecture and experiential learning was good. Two practical trainings a day were enough for me, but sometimes I was quite tired because of lack of free time and time for rest.Few words about food. I loved breakfast the most. All food was vegetarian and healthy. We had enough protein. And I really liked the variety of food. Sometimes dinner was little late as we had to go to sleep early.As it was scholarship program we had only one day off and sometimes we felt tired."

All different in their own way. Very diverse. The teachings were very informative and varied. I would like to have more questions and answers practice like the final written exam. I learn more through self practice. I enjoyed my stay. Nice location. Food was really good. Maybe in the morning not to mix so much fruits with other food."

    "Its hard to pin down in one sentence about what was the most useful in the training, seeing it was all a journey into a deeper understanding of myself and the world around me.As I was sick I had trouble with my own asana and ability. The hours were long but I really liked it.Good put together teachings and teachers. Rather had more Ayurveda. It was intensive course, so naturally the classes were that too. I believe that the most I will learn is when I get back home and have time by myself to process it all. Read more books on the subject and when able to do asana, discover and grow by self-practice. Balance of lecture and experiential learning was fine.Because I was sick and disabled I struggled a lot. Sometimes I felt really bad and the support I got from few students and staff was comforting. So I enjoyed my staying.I really enjoyed breakfast every time. Every meal was made by lovely people and that came back in the food. Very grateful.Id like more reading material on subject as anatomy. Its really interesting, but very much to remember and process within the month. English is not my first language what makes it more of challenge to process and fully understand."

    "The adjustment classes were really useful. I wish we had more of them. It was a bit too intensive as we didnt have a full day off. It was hard to find time to rest or do self study. But this is the time allocated for scholarship program, so I respect it. All teachers were well educated and motivating, they all knew what they were doing and trying their best to give us what we needed. Especially asana teachers and anatomy were really beneficial. I learned a lot of them. I feel lucky to have worked with them. Balance of lecture and experiential learning was good.Accommodation was really good. The only thing was that the room was a bit too cold. But the management provided us with some extra blankets. Whenever someone had health problems, they took very good care of us and made us feel really safe. These are very important things for a school. I really appreciate all the efforts they made to protect.I liked the food. It was all vegetarian, mostly vegan. Students were face to eat how much ever they wanted. They were really delicious and healthy."

    "I took both the 200 and 300 YTTC at Rishikul Yogshala and the sister yoga school, Akshi Yogshala. My journey with the excellent teachers, and staff was quite an experience that changed my life forever. Many programs can offer someone the culture of India being based out of India, but what this amazing group of people gave to not only I but also many others the soul better yet the prana that is yoga.Accommodations are more than just comfortable, every need was met and every question answered, and each lesson more valuable than the next. Rishikul Yogshala operates like a family unit, which I believe makes the difference between a good and great organization. The experience of the course is set by your own capabilities, which each Master personally seeks to expound upon making you greater than you ever could hope to be. The program offers an array of benefits that replenish the heart, body, mind, and spirit with courses, which consisted of Shat Kriya, Philosophy, Anatomy, Mantra, Alignment, Yoga Nidra, Pranayama, along with the classical wellknown aspects of yoga, which are Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa.The yogshalas are both located in Ram Jhula a small village in Rishekish city, which is a jewel of India and the Yoga Capital of the world. A Holy city which will capture the attention of even the most skeptical individual and give them a sense of Spiritual awakening to new cultures and a new way of living. Rishikesh is home to the most welcoming and open people sure to bring a smile to ones face and warmth to the heart. The Ganga River a powerful connection to the Hindu faith and imminent source of life runs through the town revitalizing everything and everyone who are fortunate enough to see and experience the mystical source which is mother Ganga. The traditional Festivals of the town brought many near and far to the city such as the month of Shiva, Guru Day, Onam festival, Independence Day, festival of brother and sister, and shortly approaching the celebration of Lord Krishna. The locals welcome the increase activity to the city and accommodate the trekkers into their business for food and other refreshments to ensure a safe and comfortable journey to the mountains.The city of Rishikesh offers a splendor of scenic views such as the Beatles ashram, Himalayas, iconic temples, nature trails and majestic water falls. A place filled with holy monks better known as Swamis, yoga masters, and citizens all field with the essence that makes Indias beauty deeper and more prevalent to those from other nations and walks of life. A place where every form of life is cherished and treated with the upmost respect can only be found in a place that sees God in everything and everyone. There is a great lesson to be learned from every aspect that creates the environment that is known as Rishikesh city. One that I am happy to observe and learn as I continue to explore Life, truth, and beauty, which lies in this town and its people."

    "The setting of this Centre in Rishikesh is tranquil, beautiful, inspirational and you have a fantastic view of the Himalayas! I am deeply grateful to all the teachers and staff for all your kindness, your guidance around the river scape, mountains and lush wooded delights of the area, and for taking care of all our needs, etc.The delicious food by Akshi was abundant, blissful and cleansing.I had been in an accident not long ago, had a fall downwards a moving escalator, and replacing 2 ruptured cervical discs with titanium ones.... This was the best medicine I could have wished for. All our teachers who continue to awe, inspire and help me manage, get stronger and heal in this modern busy world. They paid so much attention to my body limitations and my specific needs to gain back my arm and core strength that I had lost after this major surgery. I joined a teacher training course to deepen my practice and I enjoyed my stay so much that I stayed another month!!! Akshi yogshala in my opinion is highly recommended!I came away on cloud 9 but with my feet firmly touching the ground!!Oh and the Yoga Nidra meditation sessions were deep relaxed out of body experiences! They were surreal!"
