This course serves as a stepping stone to becoming a successful yoga teaching professional. Our training provides a profound insight into the teachings of yoga to all participants. Filled with fun, enthusiasm and novelty with a modern approach, our course is designed to boost the physical and mental capabilities of a student. The classes relatively vary from vigorous physically activities to less intensive and more restorative sessions. We recommend a yogic diet, beneficial to your health and fitness.

This course exposes the student to all the basic styles of Vinyasa yoga and flow yoga, upon which a student can identify the most suitable yoga style for him or her and proceed to explore it further. This provides students a vivid idea to decide upon the advanced courses they would like to take up in future.

You should join this course if:

You are not new to yoga and possess a basic knowledge of what yoga is.

You would like to improve your own personal practice Vinyasa or Flow yoga.

You aspire to acquire a deep insight into your understanding of yoga, its philosophy, anatomy, pranayama, Ayurveda and yogic diet.

You are passionate about discovering the yoga teacher residing in you inherently.

You would like to kick start your career as yoga teacher with success at your hand already.

Our 200-hour yoga teacher training offers a profound foundation in every style of Vinyasa Flow, focusing on accurate alignment of the postures of the primary series. Your training course will begin with introductory classes of the primary series, progressing through a variety of multi style Vinyasa Flow as you proceed through the series. Technical workshops will help emphasize the crucial areas. These workshops are essentially rewarding in terms of assessing the visual progress that you make in your everyday training session. This serves as a reminder too about the fact that yoga is fun and interactive at Himalayan Yoga Bliss. This is in total contrast to the general view that everyone does have about yoga as dealing exclusively with self-discipline and concentration during the practice. Pranayama that teaches the breathing techniques is also included as a part of the routine of the daily sessions.

Classical yoga philosophy is intertwined all through the course. Patanjalis yoga sutras as well as the ancient history of yoga will also be introduced as a part of the course. This provides a clear distinction between the classic yoga and its contemporary approach along with their influences on our life.

You will be encouraged to teach your peers during the second week of your training. You will gradually start by teaching each other on a one-to-one basis initially. You will then proceed to device and deliver your own lesson plan. We will provide tools necessary for you to improve your teaching skills for every week. This would eventually facilitate you to prepare your own yoga class which you will have the opportunity to teach in the closing week. You will be assessed based on this in final week of the course. Our students feel the last week the most memorable part of their course as they showcase all their capability and everything that they have learnt throughout the course during this week. Participating and providing valuable feedback in the classes conducted by the peers is the best means to learn the art of teaching. Himalayan Yoga Bliss brings together all the yoga enthusiasts from all over the world to continue the journey together.

Her classes are subtle but intense connecting every movement to the breath or prana the life force and vitality of our spirit. She believes that every relaxed and comfortable pose is a yoga pose and that a true yogi should be very comfortable with their body and its limitations.

She also focuses in understanding our in borne philosophy first rather than blindly adapting the concept of a borrowed philosophy. Her approach to yoga is very contemporary and reason based making her philosophy classes very interesting and dynamic. Her meditation techniques come from all arrays of life and are based on the teachings of some very famous spiritual gurus.

It was then he started his journey of yoga. To deepen his practice, he dedicated a lot of his time and energy in helping people to be physically, mentally and emotionally happy. He taught Yoga, not only as a physical practice but to remind his students of that serene place of utmost freedom and bliss that resides inside every individual.

Saravanan teaching is very dynamic as he guides and encourages his students to appreciate their body, its power and limitations. His warm and helpful nature, empathizes his students to achieve proper alignment, health, mental and spiritual benefits. His teaching style is based on the teachings of various Indian masters and his own practice as he travels teaching and learning around the world.

Saravanan has trained from various world renowned institutes like Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy, The International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre and has acquired the prestigious title of Yoga Acharya (Master of Yoga). He currently travels teaching and assisting his Swamis for the international Sivananda Vedanta Yoga projects around the world.

Darjeeling

Darjeeling is an enchanting and very popular hill-station in India. Also known as the queen of hills it is famous for its lofty snow-capped mountains, UNESCO world heritage toy train and beautiful tea gardens. It derives its name from the Tibetan word Dorjee-ling meaning place of the thunder bolt. Its nestled in the beautiful Himalayas at an altitude of almost 7000 feet. It shares its border with Nepal in the West and Bhutan in the east.

The serene beauty of this place enforces one to experience a close encounter with nature. It enables an individual to sense the oneness with the nature which is highly essential for a yoga seeker. Every inch of its environment reflects the culture and tradition of yoga thus making it an ideal place for the practice of yoga. Thus we feel blessed to have had an opportunity to set up our yoga training center in such an appropriate location. We feel proud to have chosen this place for our yoga course as location plays major role in experiencing the true potential of yoga. Learning and exploring yoga at Darjeeling will become a memorable part of life.

Apart from these, Darjeeling exposes you to a blend of Indian, Tibetan and Nepali cultures due to its location. So it is a wonderful opportunity to explore wide range of cultures and their relation to yoga in a single place. It is the best place to research the impact yoga can have on an individual to a society extended over to a country.

Darjeeling is acclaimed internationally for its world famous tea that shares the same protected status as champagne and cognac. Trekkers and adventure seekers have been flocking here for years to be face to face with the sublime grandeur of the Himalayas. The green slope of Darjeeling has diverse varieties of flora and fauna including rhododendrons, orchids, magnolias, different varieties of coniferous pines and ferns. The majestic views of Indias highest mountain Kanchenjunga, considered the tallest mountain in the world for centuries has baffled travelers since time immemorial. Just being in its presence humbles all who stand before it.

    "Overall, I was very happy with Himalayan Yoga Bliss and Wellness Centre’s 28 days of yoga in Darjeeling. The quality of teaching was excellent, the curriculum was well thought through, and the majority of my expectations were met. However, it is obviously a new school in India, so there are some points where the school could improve, mainly on student management and admin. I would recommend this course to a friend and attend again."

    "I was lucky enough to find beautiful Sonam and Himalayan Yoga Bliss to do my 200-hour YTT last October. The place, high up in the the tea fields of Darjeeling is the epitome of serenity, peace, and escapism; and serves as a great place to discover more about yoga, the Himalayan region of India, and yourself. The teaching course was fantastic, in depth, hard enough to challenge your physical and mental limits; but taught in a simple and caring manner. Both our teachers were great, and the locals, our homestay hosts, and everyone we encountered in town were so friendly. The course and town was not daunting to a group of India first-timers like us, but we really felt adopted by the community. I know one day my yoga practice will bring me back to Darjeeling and I look forward to returning here. I highly recommend this center to anyone lucky enough to be passing through. "

    "I did a Yoga Teacher Training (200h) in the fall of 2015 at the Himalayan Yoga Bliss & Wellness Centre and I can only highly recommend it. The teachers are wonderful Yogis and Yoginis, knowledgable and caring. The training teached me to be open minded and opened up my heart to the large field of Yoga. Yoga is so much more than I thought it to be - and I am grateful to have been able to discover so many facets of it. They teach different style physical practices (we did Hatha, Ashtanga Primary series and Vinyasa Flow) and also a great deal of meditation, chanting and the ancient philosophy and history of Yoga. It has been an intense month of practicing and learning."

I spent a month there doing my 200-hour teacher-training course and I'm so glad I did! I left the course feeling confident and prepared to go out into the world as a certified yoga instructor. It was a life changing experience and something I always look back on fondly. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to learn yoga in the Himalayas! Enjoy!"

    "I had the pleasure of studying under the tutelage of Yogi´s Sonam and Vishnu during a 200hr YTTC at the beautiful Himalayan Yoga Bliss studio in Darjeeling, India. To wake up for morning meditation and asana classes while watching the sun rise paint golden light across Kanchenjunga´s frozen peaks was an experience that I wont soon forget. I can not speak highly enough of the experience, knowledge and wisdom passed down by each teacher. The design of the YTTC was brilliant in its breadth, scope, and depth. The course was demanding and highly intensive and as such hugely rewarding. Obtaining my certification from Himalayan Yoga Bliss was a life changing experience, not just in preparing me to spread the ancient teachings of yoga, but also in helping to deepen and better understand my own practice. Whether a one time drop in or a advanced practitioner taking the TTC, Himalayan Yoga Bliss will surely provide some insight into your journey on the mat. Namaste, Ryan"

Well I would recommend this Yoga Centre to anybody who wants to do their Teacher training course , drop in classes or Yoga Retreats. Darjeeling is a beautiful place and Himalayan Yoga Bliss just adds up to it. "

    "We were very happy and grateful to enroll in the one month yoga teacher course with the Himalayan Yoga Bliss Center in Darjeeling in Sep. 2015. The opening ceremony for the students on the first day was such a nice cultural and spiritual experience. It also set the direction the yoga course would take on; the traditional Eastern approach with a nice blend of the western one.Our teacher and the founder of the center Sonam radiated beautiful energy and a deep sense of knowledge of yoga from the very first moment we met which allowed us to fully immerse into the course and begin to understand the true path to yogic life besides the physical aspect of it (asanas). We believe that understanding the philosophical and spiritual aspect of yoga is an essential part for any yoga teacher's training course."

The yoga is taught in a very open, humble and honest way. I loved my time in Darjeeling and at Himalayan Yoga Bliss, I learned so much there and am eternally grateful for it. Thank you for having me and I look forward to returning one day! Om."

    "Incredible course, stunning location, divine teachers, amazing yoga and made some friends for life! I loved every minute of the TTC course with Sonam and Rakesh. They made us all feel so warm, welcome, loved and taken care of for the entire stay, like a second home. The accommodation and food was beautiful and the course was thorough and well organised. Such a perfect balance of physical yoga, meditation, philosophy and other activities, as well as some very special adventures. I loved that the studio was tucked away in a little mountain village, which really allowed me to focus on my practice and really immerse myself in the experience without too many distractions. I can not recommend this course highly enough, and I will cherish the memories I made here, and the beautiful friends I have made. Love and Light."

The location was also wonderful. I thought the combination of different styles were great and beneficial for our different learning. I personally enjoyed the chats I had with the teachers and thoroughly enjoyed all of the philosophy classes.The food was healthy and vegetarian was a great choice. I have tried to continue where possible and try cooking the same for my family. Thank you!"

    "I have learnt yoga in California as I was brought up there. So I was in search of a yoga institute that specifically matched the knowledge of yoga I acquired so far. After a thorough research, I have identified that the Himalayan Yoga Bliss is the only institute that can offer exactly what I needed. I was mainly looking for an institute which can deliver the courses in American style in professionalism, readiness, training modes, passion for perfection, attitude, quality of teaching; and on a broad perspective, their ability to inspire and motivate the aspirants which demonstrates the genuine love, any teacher may have for their subject. The faculties at Himalayan Yoga Bliss are dedicated and serve as iconic models for their students who wish to transform into yoga masters like their teachers. My expectations as a dancer are very high with limited resources and time. So I always want to ensure that I choose an institute that could deliver exceeding my expectations. The Himalayan Yoga Bliss did not only perform beyond my expectations. My learning and my expertise went deeper than just the physical practice of yoga, and most importantly it had a profound impact on how I envision life."

    "The yoga teacher training course at Himalayan Yoga Bliss was a wonderful and awesome journey - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It was delivered in the most safest, integrated, and innovative means. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about not only about yoga, but also more about themselves. The course vividly demonstrated how to adapt yoga to my own style and enabled me to connect on a personal level to the practice. The classes and workshops are a wonderful opportunity to work with others, as they help to teach how to develop and sustain a personal practice independently."

But now after completing the yoga teacher training at Himalayan Yoga Bliss, I have realized the true difference between what I thought was yoga and what yoga really is. I have always felt strongly drawn to yoga and was always inclined towards its study to a deep level and enhance my practice, knowledge, and spirituality. "

Where else can you practice yoga while looking out over the powerful and magnificent Kanchenjunga? It truly is a breathtaking and "blissful" experience. Instructors are brought in from all different parts of the world for each training period, providing a wide scope of experience as each has their own unique teaching style to share. The director of the center, Sonam is a true yogini and has a lot to offer in terms of experience, knowledge, technique, friendship, and support. You really should make this a must do on your trip to Darjeeling, you wont regret it!"

They couldn't have been more accommodating to our needs. We're a mixed age and experience group (some of us trying yoga for the first time). It's an attractive, clean, and well-maintained place, very reasonable at 300 INR a head and Sandra is a great teacher. It was spectacular for us to do early morning yoga here and I can't recommend it enough."

I loved the personal touch. This is not a big impersonal ashram and you're not just another cog in the Indian yoga machine. Instead, there is a lovely supportive atmosphere - more like a small family! I have no problem recommending this place. I've been raving about it to family and friends since getting back to Ireland. On a practical level, there was an interesting range of instructors, teaching various styles."

    "After an ominous decision to spend a month and a half in Darjeeling, I was very much blessed with the proximity of this wonderful yoga establishment. The place itself is located on a lovely hill overlooking the most astonishing view of the second highest mountain in the world and its majestic surroundings. Combined with that, the beautifully made yoga hall with the windows that catch sight of the sunrise and sunset did it for me. All the classes in that hall were as inspiring and healing as the time of the day they took place, that is, during sunrise and sunset. I did yoga once and sometimes twice almost every day and by the end of my stay, I was as blissful as could be - in body and mind.Whatever people say, bliss lies within, and this place and its people were the perfect ground for inspiring that little glimpse of bliss within me! Thank you!"

A high standard flat with two bedrooms, a living room, and kitchen. Really good teachers - professional and knowledgeable! I'm happy to recommend this place to anyone doing a TTC or drop-in class.

I really enjoyed our teachers and the TTC. We were a small group of four people so we got plenty of personal attention and it was a relaxing environment. The studio is in an amazing location with a stunning view over the city and the Himalayas. I would definitely recommend Himalayan Yoga Bliss if you feel like doing yoga in Darjeeling!!"

    "I couldn't recommend this yoga centre enough. If you're a seasoned yoga enthusiast then I predict this place can bring you along, not only through the beautiful surroundings but through the expertise and warmth of the staff. Or if like me, you are just interested, please head to the Himalayan Yoga Bliss and Wellness Center. I was made to feel like part of the family (having great food and conversation in the host, Sonam's, apartment) and most importantly, I wasn't made to feel embarrassed by the fact I was useless at yoga. Definitely the best thing Darjeeling has to offer - I've been here five months, and my only regret is not making the walk up the hill sooner."
