Yoga Teacher Training in Himalayas: Kalimpong, (Darjeeling) India
200-hour residential hatha yoga teacher training in Himalayas (Yoga Alliance Certification - RYT 200), beginners courses & retreats in Kalimpong, India. This course is run in collaboration with Anandavan Yog Peeth, which has its roots in Rishikesh Yog Peeth. The faculty and course is shared between the two schools. It is our aim to be a part of the world-wide community that is spreading Yoga to benefit all people. We will attempt to deepen our own understanding and share this with all those who come to us. Throughout history, in India, people have been drawn to the mighty Himalayas in their quest for knowledge and practice. There is a special energy in these mountains that aids this aspiration. East Indian Himalayas bestowed with beauty and positive energy have been the destination of spiritual tourists from Tibet and elsewhere from centuries. This is one of the reasons we decided to locate our sister school in the North-eastern Himalayas of India in Kalimpong. Darjelling
We believe Yoga is a gift to entire humanity and its teaching and practice is a much needed antidote to the stress and suffering of our lives. We also believe that India, the birth place of Yoga, has a special responsibility to continue to perpetuate and spread this message of Yoga to the world in its original essence, while embracing the insights of modern science to add to, and not take away the original spirit and meaning of Yoga. We are conscious of this responsibility and its importance. We will make sincere efforts to teach the right things in the right way—the way it was meant to be and the way Yoga Alliance USA requires us to do.
200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Kalimpong - 2016 ~ 2017
Our 200 Hour RYT program certified by Yoga Alliance USA is aimed at providing you the basics of Hatha Yoga—which was the original Yoga as taught by the ancient Masters. This is a "no-frills" attempt to preserve the original teachings that have evolved over the centuries in India. At the same time, we lay stress on providing a scientific understanding of the asanas in execution and alignment with knowledge of anatomy. We believe that the philosophical facet of Yoga is equally, if not more important, and we have designed our course to lay special emphasis on understanding the basic Sankhya-Yoga philosophy. At the end of this course you should have a good grounding on the basic and important philosophical aspects of Yoga. We give our full and undivided attention to our students. Our classes are small in size and do not exceed 8~12 people. Our course will provide a natural understanding of Hatha yoga in a structured and logical way. This includes practice and theory as per the course requirement of Yoga Alliance USA.
We also arrange two excursions in and around Kalimpong during the course so you can experience the culture and the spirit of the Himalayas.
