Yoga Teacher Training Courses

At Hatha Yoga World, we focus on the integration of yoga in one’s everyday life (yoga as lifestyle). Our students live and study in a community with their peers and teachers. We approach yoga as a complete system and explore the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits through classes and daily practice.

Hatha Yoga World offers yoga teacher training courses in Rishikesh, India and Dharamsala, India. These are residential yoga training programs wherein students can study yoga and learn the traditional yoga postures (asanas) from certified teachers. Our yoga schools are located in serene and peaceful locations, offering a combination of comfort, aesthetics, and impeccable services. We offer 200-hour yoga teacher training course and 300-hour yoga teacher training course.

Hatha Yoga World is proud to offer “The Art of Adjustment”

Learning Yoga is all about learning the correct body postures. At first instance, it seems very easy but training the body to form the perfect posture is quite a different matter. Traditional Yoga training places great emphasis on correct asanas as defined in the Vedic texts. After years of hard work and experience, our teachers have crafted the finest techniques of Asana Adjustment. A process wherein the student is guided to the perfect asana (body posture) through meticulous training and gentle nudges. Yoga postures enable smooth energy flow through the body and therefore if the posture is not right, the energy flow will be hindered. That’s why we put so much emphasis on asanas.

What sets Hatha Yoga World’s training apart?

  • An emphasis on asana adjustment training.
  • A series of meditations designed to put you on the process of self-discovery.
  • The experience (16 years) and expertise of head teacher and program director, Pankaj Seth.
  • The influence of the renowned spiritual teacher and healer, Usha Dobhal, and our other highly-qualified teachers.
  • Life in beautiful retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of town.

Offered in both Rishikesh and Dharamshala, India, Hatha Yoga World’s “The Art of Adjustment” is a residential, adjustment-centred 200-hour & 300-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Course fully certified by Yoga Alliance, USA. We have talked to hundreds of yoga students about what they prefer in their training courses and have designed our program with their feedback in mind. Our yoga courses in Dharamsala and Rishikesh offer residential, traditional yogic training programs.

To provide all students with the attention and mentorship needed to grow, we cap our program at 20 students. Our Yoga Courses are designed for all levels of students—beginner, intermediate, and advanced. We ask that complete beginners take our two-week yoga retreat before beginning training.

The course includes yoga training from a registered yoga school, course material, accommodation, and food. After completing the course, students can register with Yoga Alliance as a RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) 200. Students should apply for a Tourist Visa for a speedy and convenient application process.

Much of the curriculum derives from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, which lays out a system approach to move toward greater physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being and eventually enlightenment.
