Yoga Teacher Training Curriculum & Fees

Intensive four weeks Yoga teacher training

The Arhanta Yoga teacher certification course is spread over four weeks of intensive yoga training covering 240 hours in total. The yoga teacher training program is carefully designed to give you detailed knowledge of Yoga, vedic philosophy, detailed correction and modification techniques, useful anatomy and physiology in a very systematic manner. The course is conducted at Arhanta Yoga Ashram in India and Europe where you will learn and study following the ancient Indian system of study i.e. Gurukul system. This system is based on the philosophy that the student lives and studies with the fellow students at the residential study center. This system helps to build a strong bond of trust and dedication between the teachers and the students and facilitates a smooth flow and proper understanding of the teachings. Staying at the Gurukul for the four weeks also helps the students to stay away from out side distractions and completely focus and learn at their optimum potential.

Yoga Alliance Teacher Training Curriculum

Following this principle at Arhanta we take selected group of students in a Yoga teacher certification course . It helps us to transform our students to skilled and confident Yoga teachers in the short period of four weeks through personal supervision and guidance. The course meets and exceeds the teacher training curriculum requirements of Yoga Alliance.
