Three things to consider before taking a yoga teacher training in India

3 min read

If you’re considering doing your yoga teacher training, India might be the placeĀ for you! Taking your practice back to the place where yoga started could bring a whole new aspect to your practice.

Consider these three factors before you begin your yoga teacher training course in India.

What kind of training do you want?

Do you prefer Eastern or Western-style teacher training? This means that you can choose between a traditional Indian style of exercise or a more comfortable training conducted by an expat.

It is important to find a course that suits you. Rishikesh and Mysore offer a more traditional form of training.

Rishikesh, also known as the “Yoga Capital of the World,” is a place where you can find almost anything you need. Rishikesh Yog Dham, a traditional Hatha Yoga school, is where you can earn your 200-hour certification.

K. Pattabhi Jois studied in Mysore with Krishnamacharya. Krishnamacharya was responsible for the revival of yoga during the 20th century. Jois established the Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yogi Institute in Mysore. This is the ideal place for Ashtanga yoga training.

Please do your research to ensure that you are happy with the school you choose and that it is right for you.

Travel Plans

India is a long way away for Americans. You must plan your trip to the subcontinent if you are planning to attend teacher training there.

Be prepared for the long flight by bringing everything you need with you. Extra snacks? Extra snacks? You’ll need to be entertained while you wait.

You can save yourself a lot of hassle by confirming your travel plans in advance. When I travel, I often only discover how to get from one place to another once I arrive. It’s best to plan all of that before you arrive.

If your training does not include accommodation, you should also consider this. Book a hotel room well in advance if your training does not include accommodation. If you’re going to be doing yoga and other workshops for a long time, you’ll want to get as much sleep as possible.

If you’re looking to extend your stay after training, an ashram is a good option. If you want to extend your stay after training, an ashram is a good option. It’s relatively inexpensive and allows you to continue your spiritual practice.

Consider India as a Whole

Consider India before you travel halfway around the globe.

India is either a country that people love or hate. It’s hard to find anything in the middle. It can be challenging to travel because of the many challenges that you may face, including food poisoning and crowded places.

The magic of doing yoga in India, where it all started, could trump even the worst experiences you have had. If India has always been your dream, it could be the perfect place to get your yoga training.

India has so many things to explore: the Taj Mahal, the Himalayas, the streets of Delhi, and the beaches of Goa. There is always something to do. India is the perfect place to immerse yourself in ancient cultures. I can’t emphasize enough how special it is that you can practice yoga where it all began.
