Hatha Yoga is the mother of all yoga styles and gives strong foundation in all the key elements of yoga like asana, pranayama, kriya and creates a conducive environment within us for higher practices like Dharana (concentration) and Dhyana (meditation). Hatha Yoga teacher training is a profound yoga course on alignment, purification and energy channelization towards absolute balance of mind and body.
Based on the basic principle of yoga as union Hatha Yoga brings unification. It is the union of the two polarities that we find universally throughout the nature. Hatha Yoga represents this duality in human system as ‘Ha’ which is right nostril or sun and ‘Tha’ which is left nostril or moon. When the dual aspects of Sun and Moon are aligned and merged there is awakening of higher consciousness in the practitioner. At the apparent level it is the combination of stimulation and relaxation or the awakening and calming practices that completes and balances the aspect of Ha-Tha. Bring the union of the forces of ‘Ha-Tha’ to broaden your understanding of yoga and deepen your practice with our yoga teacher training in India and thereby bring out the best yoga teacher and practitioner hidden in you.
We keep our Yoga Teacher Training program real and authentic to the core. We achieve this by adhering to the principles of Yoga given in the important yogic texts. The most prominent of them are Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Patanjali Yoga sutra and Bhagavad Gita. “Calming the mental distractions” as suggested by Patanjali is the bottom line of Yoga practice. Hatha Yoga brings this final result in a beautiful way of na hathāt na balāt “not with brutal force”, suggesting that a path of moderation is the best way to culture the mind. The path to moderation is ensured by the twin aspects of Abhyasa (practice) and Vairagya (non-attachment) that goes into the training, preventing us to deviate to the extremes.
When we train we also keep in mind the benchmarks of Yoga practice and teaching uphold by Yoga Alliance. We distinguish our self in this by meeting and exceeding the standards of quality, competence and safety of Yoga practitioners maintained by Yoga Alliance.

Yoga is for everyone and everyone needs Yoga. Whether you have some prior experience of Yoga or if you are completely new to the discipline, Yoga picks the individual from where he/she is. What you need is the pragmatic awareness of the fact that Yoga is a spiritual discipline and that which strengthens your yoga practice should be observed and rest be rejected. We accept application from 18 years of age onward and there is no upper age limit. Even during the last stage of life Yoga practice accrues great benefit says the Bhagavadagītā.
