Details and descriptions of course materials

Asana: The practice is divided in two classes, which are held in morning and evening sessions. The morning session includes two hour class of Hatha yoga while the evening session includes another class of two hour where Astanga Vinyasa is practiced. Unique belt props are used for adjusting the positions in the most right way. If you have any questions regarding the adjustment, you may feel free to talk to your teacher and a genuine help is assured!

Alignment: This session enables you in learning about the right positions of the asanas. This class has been designed to help novice learners understand the crucial significance about the art of adjustment and alignment of asanas using proper and effective techniques. The alignment techniques class is held each day for two consecutive hours, and this is what makes yoga practice worth learning.

Pranayama: This is an important section of the yoga teacher training course, which enables learners in grabbing a sound knowledge about the control of prana or the subtle energy that leads to control of the mind. This class is held twice a day right after practicing asanas and is a crucial part of 200 hrs teacher training course in Rishikesh, India.

Mudra and bandha: An action that gives us delight or extreme joy. Practicing the art of mudra is concerned with sensory aspects. Mudra is a skilful technique that aids in meaningful practice of the pranayama, pratyahara ,dharana, dhyana, and samadhi. On the other hand, the bandhas are also included in mudras. These are only four in number and are usually practiced as an essential part of pranayama. When the bandhas are practiced without pranayama, these are then basically termed as the mudras.

Shat karma: The shat means six and karma means action. The shat karma is the six cleaning techniques of the human body included in the practice of yoga. The shat karma is practiced early morning and one time each day throughout the six days in a week.

Meditation: The meditation is not something that is done by mind; it is something out of the mind or better described as beyond the mind, when the mind stops meditation happens. This class is held early morning for about 30 minutes each day throughout the six days in a week.

Philosophy: The yoga teacher training course Rishikesh includes philosophical sessions throughout the six days in a week. These sessions are entertained by the Yogi Harishchandra or our guest teacher Guru Buddhi Prakash ji to help deliver peace of mind and gyana (knowledge) about the yoga and spirituality.

Anatomy/physiology: The 200 hours teacher training course in Rishikesh also includes anatomy and physiology classes which are taken by the Dr.Harsh.

Chanting: Yoga teacher trainees will learn to chant and present yogic mantras in the beginning and ending of yoga classes and 30 minutes 3 days in a week and also we teach how to use mantra to purify and balance the chakras. Also we will give you techniques of Mantra Dhyana.

    The Yogic Path at Atri Yoga Training Centre

    CONS Cons: Supervision of the accommodation ensuring all is set for the arrival of the students.

    PROS Pros: The lead instructor (Harish) and his assistants (Sandeep and Deepika) are all effective teachers. They listen to the students yet strict with the curriculum ensuring the standards are met for the students' benefit. The philosophy subjects are very interesting and have learned a lot. I have gained knowledge on better meditating ways, correct and safe way of doing the cleansing, variations of pranayama, correct and proper alignments and execution of asana, how to achieve complete relaxation, and how to have positive thinking. Thank you and keep up the good work! Location for the meal is satisfactory.

    Life-changing experience

    PROS Pros: I loved everything about this course. It was a professional, but also friendly and kind environment. I progressed so much in my asana and meditation practice, but I also learned a lot about yogic lifestyle and philosophy. After the alignment classes and some teaching practice, I feel confident to go and bring the joy of yoga to other people :) But I will be back to do my 300 hours to learn more :) Big thanks to Harish and everyone involved :)

    "In a scale of ten ATRI YOGA CENTRE receives full marks. I find this place truly amazing and cannot recommend it enough. Harish and Dipa are incredible and made the transition easy. Real professionals and devoted teachers. And the care for the students is second to none. Yoga is not just exercising, but a whole new lifestyle. I felt really inspired by the philosophy of yoga and the true beliefs behind it. The classes were structured to suit anyone, from a complete beginner to the advanced yogis. The routine was broken by few days of outing and site seeing, which made the experience even better. When you complete the course you will receive not just a certificate, but also a further guidance and support. Don't wait any longer, book your trip to complete freedom and liberation."

    "I would like to express with absolute pleasure how amazing my experience doing yoga teacher training with Harish and Deeper from Atri Yoga center in September of 2016."

    "I wanted to do a course that provided thorough in-depth training and I got much more! The wealth of knowledge the program provides you with is so invaluable and really does leave you with an expanded mind, a thirst to learn and practice more and more. Day-to-day you complete: Meditation, Cleansing, Hatha yoga, Alignment (learn to teach), Anatomy training (from a doctor) Philosophy discussions (with guru), Vinyasa Yoga, Mantra chanting, and Breath training. All while sustaining a healthy vegetarian diet. All Accommodation and meals are provided throughout the course and are of quality standard. Field trips are also included, full of adventure and amazing experiences, a pure highlight for me, with Harish you will experience India in a more deeper way. It was a life changing experience for me and I am deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to train and be supported by such kind and high quality professionals."

    "I recommend the Atri Yoga center to anyone who is serious about learning deep yogic knowledge, and determined to be a disciplined, open minded student. You will be challenged, pushed and encouraged."

    "Yogi Harish Chandra at the Atri Yoga Center in Rishikesh will give you the best direction to offer you some assistance with mastering the yoga asanas. He will give you insights of knowledge of the yogic theory and will abandon you with the intelligence of how to define successful classes so that you may show others with certainty while staying consistent with an ancient yoga style."

    "In my 25 years of yoga practice, gathering of philosophical, and meditative experience I have found four great masters that deeply impacted my life as a committed yogini. Yogi Harishchandra is one of those spiritual masters and is an expansive authority on all aspects of both Hatha and Asthanga asanas, meditation, pranayama, mudras, advanced kriyas, vedic/yogic philosophy, Ayurveda, yoga related anatomy and physiology, and teaching methodology. I completed a 200- hour intensive teacher training with him, a course that is far more in depth than many that I have researched. He has been instrumental in guiding my self-knowledge and practice, over all, to a deep and integrated level. Yogi Harishchandra is a fully committed master who devotes his life to his practices and to guiding others in the discovery of the Guru within themselves."

    "Harish was doing a teacher training course in Goa (a once off I think) when I arrived in town. I asked him if I could join in (only for a few weeks) and he was happy to let me. I have being practicing yoga for a few years, however I have only practiced in Australia before this, and I was very happy with Harishs teaching. He corrected my positions and pushed me just a bit further than I would push myself and I reached a higher point in my yoga practice. It was a great learning experience."

    "I did the 200 hour yoga course in November with my girlfriend. We did ashtanga yoga in the morning and hata in the afternoon. We started the course with mediation and cleansing. The proper way of meditation is very important to him this makes also easier for you to make progress. In the alignment class he showed us how to teach on many different postures. The small group made it possible to teach for everybody and learn how a teacher has to correct the students. Yoga philosophy and physiology made the whole course complete.We stayed in a nice hotel with got great food in a restaurant everybody took a lot of care of us. Harish is an amazing person. His yoga lessons are very good, always keeping a nice tension and he motivates to make more progress. He corrects you in a very smart"

    "way during the course and you can achieve a great progress. I was kind of suffering a lot but I loved it ;)I am very thankful and recommend Atri Yoga Center."
