Meet the Director
Ram Jain (ERYT 500 , 40,000 hours of teaching experience)
Ram is the head teacher and director of our yoga ashrams with teaching experience of 19 years. He is has trained over 4000 yoga teachers worldwide since 2009.
Born and raised in India, his yoga and vedic philosophy education started at the age of 8 years as a part of his primary school education. He has in-depth knowledge of various ancient scriptures like Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika as well as Anatomy and Physiology.
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, serious and professional. It is an amazing experience, don't miss this chance."
This TTC fulfilled all my expectations. The location, the food, the content and the schedule were as I thought a serious TTC should look like. I want to emphasize specially the high quality of both content & methods of the two teachers, Ram and Omkar provided. I am really impressed! I recommend it very much."
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!"
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. It is so much more than ‘just’ a yoga TT course. The teachers Ram & Omkar 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.
I am very grateful to my friend Laura who recommended me this school. Arhanta Yoga provided everything I was looking for. After many years practicing yoga I finally got the deep knowledge that I was looking for. The time in the ashram for one month allowed me to better connect to myself. The teachers are more than professional and the ashram is really peaceful. I highly recommend this life changing experience.
Almost 4 weeks ago I couldn't expect that I would feel ready to teach after the course, but thanks to the teachers now I feel completely ready. The variety of classes, great teachers and the ashram experience make this course a great experience for yourself & for becoming a skilled yoga teacher. If you have a chance to study here, don't miss it, It can't be better !

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.

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 basic English, if you can read and understand an English newspaper then your English level is sufficient to follow the course.
