This course is for everyone, even if you have very little experience with Yoga. Each student leaves with a universally recognised and valid yoga teacher certificate. This comprehensive course offers a detailed insight into Yoga. The course covers all eight limbs of Yoga as put forward by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. The teacher training certification (TTC) encompasses all aspects of yoga; on and off the mat. Therefore, the YTT course covers the physical, spiritual and ethical dimensions of Yoga.

Om Yoga Academy wants every one of their students to leave Rishikesh with a strong spiritual practice that they can take with them for the rest of their lives. This is so they can all share this blessing with others as they become teachers.

The aim of our academy

This 200-hour yoga teacher training is based around the ancient teachings of hatha yoga. The teachers have vast experience in teaching the 200-hour yoga teacher training course; with over 1000 students trained personally under them.

Om Yoga Academy teaches traditional hatha yoga. There is a strong focus on safe alignment and the use of props. Additionally, the school takes a modern approach to human anatomy and individual skeletal variation. We do not force students to fit into a box of how their bodies should behave and move. Besides the asana practice (yoga poses), yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy, pranayama (breathing techniques - literally the extension of the life force), meditation and kriya (cleansing techniques) are all explored on the course. The Academy also teaches practical teaching skills. This includes sequencing, adjustments and variations. On top of all of that, on each Saturday the school holds a special introductory Ayurveda class.
