Where to do a yoga teacher training course in India?

Where to do a yoga teacher training course in India?

Hi all! I'm planning a great surprise birthday present for my wife, who is a yoga enthusiast-- a solo trip to India, to get her yoga teacher training certification. I've done some investigation online, and it seems like Rishikesh is the yoga capital of the area, though there are a lot of ashrams in Mysore, Goa, and other places. Most important is the quality of the education, of course.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a specific yoga school? Or any advice on whether Rishikesh is the place to go?

I just want to be sure I get it right!

Thanks!

Kent

Hi Kent,

Go for Rishkesh, if you are looking for a Yoga "School", the real ones are here !

I can highly recommend couple of the many there, as follows: -

http://www.patanjaliyogafoundation.com/

https://www.rishikeshyogpeeth.com/

Both are equally good and renowned.

Cheers

Just to chime in with the rest to give you reassurance that Rishikesh is the best place to go. There are many places in India claiming to offer yoga training courses but the best are in Rishikesh.

There are loads of good places, but for a serious Yoga enthusiast, I would recommend either the Iyengar institute in Pune or the Yoga Kendra in Santacruz.

They have both been around for decades and are thorough professionals - not the Rishikesh type spring ups made specially to rip off foreigners.

Hey kent. Wonderful idea!!

There can't be any place better than rishikesh to learn yoga. There are quite a few renowned places ghat u can enroll her into, patanjali being one of them. Would just recommend to do a bit online research on the costing, before finalizing or even starting to negotiate with one.

If anyone interested I booked a yoga retreat in Rishikesh and I can't attend the class be cause of my work, I need someone to go instead of me .

I choosed this ttc because I know one of the teacher, I already did 3 weeks retreat with her and I know everything is really clean and comfortable.

As well there is a therapist taking care of the student.

Here is the link :

samasti-yoga.com

I have the early bird price so I paid 1680 instead of 1800, if someone is interested I can make it cheaper as I really need this money.

The program start the 17th of november

The question you posted back in August and As of now its October, So You might have figured out where you going to have this surprise disclosed to your wife. But if you are not done with the idea of where you should go to get her course done of Yoga Teacher, and looking for best yoga teacher training center in terms of quality of the education, of course; You need to pay a lot of attention to what I am adding further.
