To become a certified yoga teacher, you must successfully complete a yoga teacher training course and show competence in your ability to teach a yoga class.

According to Patanjali - the most revered master of yoga and author of Patanjali Yoga Sutra, “As body gets purified with medicines, as language gets purified with grammar, the mind (which is the master of everything) gets purified with yoga.” With such a vivid explanation, Samadhi Yoga Ashram has devised the 300 hours of holistic yoga teacher training course for all interested aspirants, who would like to pursue their career in yoga teaching. This course is strategically developed to bring a person out of his premonitions and prepare his mind to accept and learn yoga as a way of living.

With different spiritual practices, Yajna (fire rituals), mantra chanting and satsang, Samadhi Yoga Ashram envisages to offer a calming effect on the minds of the disciples and offer them a tranquil state of mind for a wilful learning. With the holistic yoga teacher training course, students stay in the campus and even participate in various activities conducted inside the campus, which reflects in their yoga teacher training.
