In 2007, Ram came to the Netherlands.He was unable to find work for a year due to language barriers and lack of contacts. Struggling to survive, he started teaching yoga to few students in his living room. In last 12 years, his small class has developed into two large yoga ashrams: Arhanta Yoga Ashram India, spread over 17 acres, and Arhanta Yoga Ashram Netherlands, spread over 4 acres of land.

My yoga teacher told me one day that going to Arhanta Yoga ashram teacher training is a special gift I would give to myself, today I can confirm it. This is a very special place. Teachers are really good, very knowledgeable and professional.  It is an amazing experience. Don't miss this chance.

Jaqueline The Netherlands


This TTC fulfilled all my expectations. I want to emphasize specially the high quality of both content and methods of the teachers. None of the courses I have done before meet the high standards in terms of content, methods and organization the Arhanta team provided. I am really impressed! I recommend it very much.

Gianni Italy


This course was recommended to me by a friend who did the same course here in 2016.  The setup of the course is incredible, the teachers are fantastic. You can see and feel yourself progressively improve. The teachers are fully tuned into the group giving it all they need. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is ready to dive into yoga or is ready to look at him- or herself.

Arjan The Netherlands


I really enjoyed the method of teaching of the course. I saw my development and growth day by day. It is an intense experience and at the same time with pleasure and good moments and laughter. The teachers are one of the strongest points of the course, they know how to transmit the content in an easy and clear way. Now I am confident to start my classes, highly recommended if you want to learn to teach yoga! 

Amanda Brazil


I am very grateful to my friend Laura who recommended me this school. Arhanta Yoga provided everything I was looking for.

I highly recommend this life changing experience".

No problem,our course is perfect for you as it will help you develop a solid foundation for an effective self practice. You will learn and practice 170 traditional Hatha Yoga asanas, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra and much more under the guidance of a team of expert teachers. 

I am an experienced yoga practitioner

Your experience will help you understands the teachings better and develop your practice and teaching skills further. In our experience most of the students are surprised after realizing the fact that how different is authentic Indian yoga from western yoga.

I am new to yoga.

You will learn and built up everything from beginning so you will have a solid foundation to start your yoga and teaching journey. 

I am not very flexible.

A flexible mind is more important than a flexible body. No one can do every posture, everyone has their own limitations. It is not necessary to be able to do all fancy postures, but much more important to understand the concepts and teachings.

May be I am too old.

We define 'Old' as the state of fitness level of the body. There is no age to be old. Sometimes a student of 60+ is more fit and willing to work hard than a student of 30 years. If you are fit and willing to work hard than you are fit for this course.

I have / had an injury.

The course is meant to help you gain knowledge and skills about yoga and how to teach it. If an injury stops you from doing certain asanas, it is not a problem. If you are willing to accept your challenges and limitation you will be successful with this course.

I am pregnant.

We generally recommend caution to pregnant women as this course is physically and mentally demanding. But in the past we have had many pregnant women who finished the course successfully. So if your doctor allows you to do the course and you take complete responsibility of your well being, we can accept you to the course. 

My English is not very good.

As most of the students are from different countries the course is taught in simple English, if you can read and understand an English newspaper then your English level is sufficient to follow the course.

Why should I study at a yoga ashram?

What is the benefit of studying at a yoga ashram?

A yoga ashram will provide you a distraction-free space to focus only on learning and practicing yoga. A study of one month at a yoga ashram is more fruitful than a study of three years at a yoga studio.

Our yoga ashrams have single, double shared and dormitory accommodations. Accommodations are simple but sufficient and clean.

How are the meals at the ashram?

Daily three meals are provided in buffet style. The meals are organic and vegan, prepared with love and compassion.
