We organize intensive four-week residential Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Courses at our traditional Yoga Ashram in India in Khajuraho, India as well as at our Yoga ashram in The Netherlands, Europe. It is an intensive course which gives all the required skills, and provides practical and theoretical information to become a successful Yoga teacher. The course is equally suitable for beginners as well as advance practitioners as it covers an extensive Yoga teacher training curriculum with all the aspects of Classical Hatha Yoga including 170+ Hatha yoga asanas / yoga poses, benefits, proper alignments, our unique and very detailed correction techniques, personal modifications as well as contra indications of each asana in detail.

We follow the teachings of Swami Sivananda and we educate and train our students to become excellent Yoga teachers with proper understanding of Classical Hatha Yoga and Yogic philosophy.
