The 200-hour yoga teacher training program is designed to familiarize students to concepts of yoga philosophy and history, as well as teaching asana (postures), alignment and anatomy so that the physical practice of yoga can be furthered. The certificate provided at the end of this course allows the student to register with Yoga Alliance. The course includes pranayama (breathing) practices and meditation, as well as traditional chanting and cleansing techniques. This gives students all encompassing view of the yogic tradition and prepares them to become yoga teachers or just to enhance their practice and understanding of yoga.
During this yoga teacher training, you will be staying at a 2-star hotel which it is located just around 20 meters far from the beach of Misano Brasile and from the beautiful promenade of Misano Adriatico.
The rooms are air-conditioned, comfortable and well maintained.
There will be meditation sessions twice a week, from 8:30 pm. Please note that the schedule is subject to change.
Sundays are days off. All the seminarians can come to the course with one or two days prior to the course, to allow them to acclimate with the area.
Evaluation will be carried out only for those students who have a minimum of 90% attendance in all 4 weeks of training.
YOGAMEA India or Italy adopts the ancient approach to yoga to instill in each student the wisdom that yoga manifests. Teaching and learning is therefore designed in such a way that ethical practices are ingrained automatically in the students at the school.
The day begins with the daily regimen (Dincharya) and ancient code of conduct. Activities are planned according to the seasonal code of conduct (Ritucharya). The concept of behavior chemistry (Achar - rasayan) is the concept that students are expected to imbibe. Maharishi Patanjali prescribed certain rules of how a person is expected to act in society (Yama) and how personal code and conduct (Niyama) is the expected and essential behavior for individuals to follow.
We at YOGAMEA expect this behavior terminology to be understood and practiced sincerely and honestly by all students to the best extent possible. Before students register for the yoga teacher training they must be aware that this traditional teaching will differ from that of the west. There could even be a fundamental difference in the understanding of the yogic path as that which is taught in the yoga schools in the west.
Modified exercises that go by the name of yoga are frowned upon by Rishikesh Yog Peeth and YOGAMEA and so only those students must apply for the course who are willing to commit to the strict regimen of the course.
Discipline is an integral part of the training program and so the course routine must be strictly observed. Disrespect to rules and regulations could result in termination of studentship with no refund of fee. Absenting oneself from the scheduled program without prior permission of the teacher or manager concerned would be construed as a gross breach of discipline. A student must announce in advance if they intend to forgo a meal so that there is no waste of food. Yogamea does not make arrangements for guests of students. Any activity that is not related to the course is not permitted. Ensure you are on time for class or you will not be permitted to enter any class once it has commenced. Before departure from the school, students are required to return all library books and any other articles belonging to the school.

Timea discovered yoga after having a serious car accident many years ago. She began studying and practicing on her own from an old book a friend had given her. Discovering a great passion for Yoga, a few years later she ventured towards her first trip to India where she took part in a Yoga Teacher Training program of 200 hours at The Rishikesh Yog Peeth School. Happy with her first experience, but eager to go more in depth, she returned to Rishikesh several times over the next few years and repeated the same course experience numerous times.
