The yoga teacher training course

The yoga teacher training program is aimed at developing a confident and competent yoga teacher with comprehensive knowledge of the subject with command over theory and practice.

To that end, Pushkar Meditation Temple imparts comprehensive knowledge and training including theory, technique, and practice; and in turn, adequately prepares students with the ability to teach all aspects of yoga as prescribed by sage Patanjali based on ancient Indian yoga philosophy.

Pushkar Meditation Temple is a unique wellness institution where yoga and meditation are practiced, taught, and researched as complementary disciplines and spiritual sciences. The practice and teaching are based on the ancient Raja Yoga/Ashtanga yoga system of sage Patanjali, the father of yoga.

Pushkar Meditation Temple offers the most comprehensive and practical yoga teaching the course in India with equal emphasis on Bahir (outer) and Antar (inner) yoga or meditation.

As the students in each batch are very few, it is like private coaching with everyone getting individual attention and space for an immersion course. No wonder, the course is getting raving reviews and is being rated and touted as the best in India. The carefully crafted course and syllabus go way beyond the syllabus prescribed by Yoga Alliance. There is equal emphasis on learning and teaching.

What differentiates a teacher trained at Pushkar Meditation Temple is the confidence and competence that the course imparts to each trainee. Most of the students start teaching and training immediately on completion of the course.
