28 Day 200Hr Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training

This 200 Hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India is a 28 day, level one residential course that will prepare you to teach yoga and meditation. The course is built on the foundations of Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga. While Ashtanga yoga has much to teach students, and forms the backbone of the program, it is also important to be highly flexible when it comes to teaching yoga, in order to adapt classes to the needs of individual students. That’s why the course also encourages you to develop your own Vinyasa Flow classes, and consider all possible approaches to teaching yoga, to inspire you to follow your passion for yoga and be equipped to teach yoga in all circumstances. 

Throughout the entire course, you will learn the fundamentals of proper technique- essential knowledge for anyone who wishes to not only teach yoga to others, but also to practice it properly themselves. These fundamentals include key alignments, variations, adjustments, and modifications, the use of various yoga equipment, as well as essential teaching methods needed to properly convey lessons to your own students.

As the foundation of the Ashtanga Yoga Vinyasa Primary series is established, principles of sequencing will be taught so everyone can create a Vinyasa Yoga flow class according to the needs of their own future students. To finely balance the Yang practice of Ashtanga, you will incorporate other styles such as Yin Yoga to provide you with a broader education and enhance your overall experience with yoga. Thai Yoga massage will also be introduced to teach safe and appropriate hands-on adjustments for different bodies. Particular attention is also paid to breathing exercises and techniques, gaze, and energy locks.

The Mantra Yoga and Meditation School is situated in the beautiful foothills of Rishikesh and is completely surrounded by breathtaking mountains.  Here, you'll wake up to the sounds of nature, with birds calling you to start your day of yoga and meditation. The school is just a short walking distance away from Laxman Jula, and the banks of the “Mother River” Ganges. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and nestled in the greenery and silence of nature, you will be able to gain a deeper understanding of your own inner self, and take positive steps forward on your spiritual journey.

Your course fee includes your 200-hour certification course, yoga mat and course manuals, props to practice yoga, accommodation in a fully  furnished private room with private bathroom, 3 yummy vegetarian meals per day, Sunday excursions, and one hour Ayurvedic massage.

  Rishikesh, India

Tapovan area is full of meadows, streams and flowering plants and the meadows are considered as one of the best high altitude meadows in India. The exquisite setting on the fast-flowing Ganges, surrounded by forested hills, is conducive for meditation and mind expansion. In the evening, an almost supernatural breeze blows down the valley, setting temple bells ringing as sadhus, pilgrims and tourists prepare for the nightly ganga aarti - a fire offering or ritual performed on the Ganges.


Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi (DEL) is the international airport that is closest to the schools in Rishikesh and Dharamsala. From there, you have several options to get to Rishikesh. It is recommend to either take an additional flight from New Delhi to Dehra Dun (DED) or arrange for a taxi or bus for the final part of your journey.
