Practice-Deepening Yoga Teacher Training India

Welcome to our most magical retreat!

Once a year, Path of Yoga return to Mother India for this unique teacher training. The venue is the highest standard in Rishikesh - a private villa with beautiful rooms, right on the bank of the Ganga. And the food is simply outstanding.

But what is really exceptional here is the teaching team. Your two lead teachers will be our Founder James French and special guest Susan Marrufo. Susan owns and runs the Samarasa Yoga Centre in Los Angeles and if you would like to find out more about her, you can find her being interviewed on several different podcasts.

Between them they have taught dozens of training all over the world, and have come together to create this exceptional course and transformational month.

They share a love for a strong yet nourishing dynamic practice married with traditional Hatha. The practically applied philosophy and sacred traditions of the East, married with the discoveries of modern sports-science are the essence and heart of this immersion course.

Join Path of Yoga for this magical four-weeks where we will live and breathe yoga together, developing ourselves physically and mentally and learning how to teach these transformative techniques to others. At the end of the month, you will be a certified Yoga Alliance 200-hour teacher, but more importantly, you will have the necessary confidence, knowledge, and teaching skills to blossom into a world-class yoga teacher.

Dive deep into the history, tradition, and evolution of your practice and join Path of Yoga in the world capital of yoga, the 'place of sages', Rishikesh, India. This Yoga Alliance, 200-hour certified training offers you a special chance to study whilst living next to India's most sacred river, the holy Ganges River.

Path of Yoga is very grateful that the home for the month is a wonderfully nurturing nature retreat right on the banks of the holy Ganges River, surrounded by mountains in total peace and quiet. This retreat is a space where people come to practice, rejuvenate, meditate, breathe, and dive deep into the heart and home of yoga.

You may choose either a private or shared room. Each room has an ensuite bathroom and Wi-Fi access, and an outside area. All have views and are spacious and comfortable, and tastefully decorated. There is also plenty to explore and discover on the grounds of the resort and surrounding nature.

Several seated areas and hammocks to rest, recharge and simply watch the monkeys. It truly is a beautiful venue, guaranteed to make you fall in Love with India and of course... Yoga.


Certification, training, food, accommodation, and teaching materials are all included in the price. The 200-hour certificate will be awarded upon completion of all course requirements. This certificate is all you need to immediately apply for your Yoga Alliance RYT 200 Certification, a certification recognized worldwide. A detailed 150+ pages of Training Manual is also included. Path of Yoga will also provide you with the 'orientation pack' which will guide you through all you need to know regarding travel, visas, and any other important information.

The Yoga Alliance certified training provides a month of Hatha, Vinyasa, breathwork, meditation, philosophy, self-development, healing, and all the skills necessary to become a successful yoga teacher. A yoga teacher training course can be and often is the beginning of a new chapter in your lives. It is not the final objective or goal, but a beautiful step on the Path of Yoga.

Each morning, you will start the day with three hours of practice made up of asana, pranayama, and meditation, followed by a healthy breakfast. You will then move into presentations ranging from philosophy and functional anatomy to sequencing and structuring and much more! The afternoons are spent diving deeper into the methodology of chosen yoga asana and practices, learning how to better understand and teach them effectively.

This is a great opportunity to spend a month with two experienced teacher trainers, including the founding teacher of Path of Yoga. At the end of the month, you will be a certified Yoga Alliance 200-hour teacher, but more importantly, you will have the necessary confidence, knowledge, and teaching skills to blossom into a world-class yoga teacher.

The syllabus

History and branches of yoga

Get an exploration of the classical traditions and their core philosophies, including Hatha, Tantra, and Vinyasa yoga. Learn about where the roots of yoga first took hold and how it has branched into where it is now.

Anatomy and physiology

Learn the anatomy of movement and study of the key body systems. You will explore how the body works and apply this important knowledge in safe and effective practice and teaching.

Key poses of yoga

Get daily study and practice of postures and their alignment, adjustments, energetic and health benefits, modifications, and effective teaching cues.

Understanding the subtle body

Learn prana and chakras. Ancient yogis described and revered the anatomy and potency of the energy body, which lay beyond the physical form. There are many layers to understanding and experiencing prana, this prime life force, and how it moves through the chakras or energetic centers. These teachings are at the very core of what makes yoga such a potent and timeless practice.

The science of breath

The breath is the connection to life and the foundation of all classical Hatha yoga practice. The breath has a profound influence on the nervous system and a deep effect on life quality, both on and off the yoga mat. Many practices will be offered from basic breath awareness to "advanced" pranayama.

Sequencing and structuring

You will learn how to use the toolkit offered in the yoga system to create meaningful sequences. A good class is not just anatomically sound but also meaningful on more subtle levels.

Meditation and the mind

Understanding your own mind and its makeup is an important part of being a guide in any practice. The power of meditation is significant. You will study and practice a variety of techniques that are aimed at the development of your own personal meditation practice and being able to hold space when teaching.

Introduction to Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a fascinating and practical science of life from ancient India that offers tools to better understand yourself and others therapeutically through the context of the doshas, gunas, and prana.

Effective teaching skills

The necessary skills to confidently lead a yoga class is obviously an important part of taking a teacher training course. There will be plenty of practice teaching; on one, in small groups, and in front of the whole class coupled with the art and science of teaching and presenting.
