Yoga Teacher Training in Dharamshala
We have particularly chosen 4 styles of yoga that we believe will create the best foundation for being a yoga teacher in today’s world. The theory content of the RYT 200 course also complements these requirements and offers a deep understanding of spiritual and traditional yogic philosophy and values.
Yoga has been applied with therapeutic intention for thousands of years and is now fast emerging as a discipline in itself. Our Yoga therapy sessions, taught by Swami Sachidanand, are derived from his 27 years of experience in the tradition of BKS Iyengar- using correct alignment and props to assist individuals facing health challenges of all kinds. The course begins with a health checkup of every student. Individual attention is paid to students who have some physical troubles and special asanas are taught to them to overcome their problems. Students will learn how to assess and assist their own students and aim to bring balance to their body, increasing wellbeing and vitality.
Hatha Yoga is the original form of yoga from where all other styles have developed. The purpose of Hatha Yoga is to keep the yogi aspirant, healthy and free from disease in order to facilitate purification of the mind. This deep practice develops a very subtle awareness within the body that begins the process of cultivating the meditative state of awareness. Pranayama (Breathing techniques) are also a very important aspect of a Hatha Yoga practice. Here we cover the traditional asana sequence, pranayama, meditation, cleansing processes and philosophies of Hatha Yoga Pradeepika.
Vinyasa yoga has become one of the most popular styles of yoga in the modern world. Students will learn the various ways of sequencing classes, incorporating stretching and strengthening asanas while placing emphasis on flowing between poses with awareness. The breath is used as an anchor to the movement, which builds heat, assists detoxification, and creates a rhythm and flow to the practice. Vinyasa Yoga is an important practice to learn due to its high demand in the current yoga world.
Art of Teaching
The art of teaching is all about Teaching Methodology. How to speak in front of a class, teacher dialogues, giving instructions, qualities of a yoga teacher, teaching styles, and the 4 teaching techniques; Instruction, Demonstration, Observation and Adjustment. We also cover the technical aspects of running a class like class structure, routine, teaching safely without injuries, an anatomy of alignment (both the theory and practice), “Art of touch” encompassing physical adjustment, setting up a yoga business- tips, ethics, and advertising and other practical teaching workshops.
Anatomy and Physiology
These classes include a general idea of the human body about its constitution and composition. We will explore the 11 systems of the body: the Integumentary System, Nervous System, Skeletal System, Endocrine System, Muscular System, Cardiovascular System, Lymphatic System, Respiratory System, Urinary System, Reproductive System, and Digestive System. Giving insight about where the journey of yoga begins- the body. The sessions will familiarize students with the different parts of our bodies and their relation to movement and breath as the body moves in and out of the posture with an understanding
Ashtanga yoga literally means “eight-limbed yoga” as outlined by the sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. Ashtanga Yoga is in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The asanas are practiced systematically and provide a harmonious flow of energy. The finishing sequence rounds off each and every Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice. Systematic learning steps help you get a deeper understanding of this powerful and dynamic yoga practice supported by your breath.
Our Yoga Philosophy classes are taught by Swami Sachidanand , a teacher with a deep understanding of yogic philosophy, obtained through his extensive studies and first-hand experience of transformation through his yoga practice. His classes are taught from a scientific perspective as he applies authentic, spiritual and philosophical values of yoga with modern day lifestyle challenges. Classes are always interesting, informative, relevant and humorous. Close your eyes now and imagine yourself sitting in an area completely surrounded by the gigantic mountains of Himalaya, their tops covered in snow. You are doing your asanas and as your mind transcends time, you find yourself in a different period of time and in a completely new place – this is the exact experience you will have while practicing yoga in the town of Dharamsala, in India.

The first thing you need to know about Dharamsala is that it’s a small town surrounded by the greatness of the Himalayas. This town is a perfect representation of a blending between art, spirituality, and nature. Those that enjoy the taste of adrenaline will love it here because they can experience rock climbing, paragliding, and many other such outdoor activities. Those that seek ancient architecture will fall in love with the ancient forts and the Hindu temples constructed according to the great Tibetan architecture. Those that enjoy nature above all else will certainly become mesmerized with the natural lakes, the waterfalls, the hot water springs and the overall beauty of the Himalayas. And last, but not the least, those that seek spirituality will love the monasteries and the temples and the fact that they can be blessed by his Holiness, the Dalai Lama, is certainly something to consider.
Dharamsala’s history with yoga stretches over hundreds of years. It is understandable, considering the fact that this unusual little town has been home to the Dalai Lama himself. As soon as your feet touch the ground, you will feel the spirituality that looms in the air. For thousands of years, the Himalayas have been home to ancient tribes of Indians that have practiced the sandhala for enlightenment purposes. In time, they have become the bearers of deep knowledge about yoga, Ayurveda, and other such Vedic sciences.
The conclusion to this is that Yoga Teacher Training in Dharamsala is much more than a holiday retreat. It is a place where you can experience true spirituality, firstly because it is the town where the Dalai Lama resides, and secondly, because of the numerous monasteries here. The air is peaceful, the Himalayas are a wonderful sight, all of these making Dharamsala the perfect retreat for studying yoga.
