In our 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training students will receive proper knowledge for teaching yoga. Yoga goes beyond the posture, that is why our classes include diverse topics such as Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Ayurvedic Medicine, Philosophy, Meditation, Everyday Living and others. We teach yoga according to the ancient Himalayan Tradition. We preserve what is lost by many schools who see yoga as mere excercise.
We are a small school with a big message. We are a family who lives yoga and wants to pass it on. That is why we like to keep the groups small (less than 9) for real conection.
Why Hari Om Yoga Vidya School?
- Tradition: Nowadays, many yoga schools are following paths that differ from what Yoga really is. Sometimes Yoga is misunderstood with body stretching, physical excersice or relaxing, but Yoga has a lot more to offer. Our school follows the tradition kept from thousands of years by Sages from the Hymalayas. Quoting Patanjali: ''Yoga is to block the patterns of the mind'', so be prepared!
- Teachers: We are very proud of the quality of the teachers we have gather for you. Everyone of them has an extensive background and expertise but most important they give classes with purpose. Their main goal is not to teach you the right Asana (position) but to look after your individual growth so that you can share it to your friends and family and later to your students.
- Family: We think of ourselves as a family. Our family has in the end the same goals: to learn from the ancient tradition the ways for a happier and more meaningful life. But we don't want just to learn: we want to share. We love that our students spend as much time as posible with the teacher and stay in touch after the course ended. That is why it is really important to keep the school small as well as the groups. We accept no more than 8 students per group to keep it that way.

We are at the heart of the sacred township of Rishikesh at the foothills of the Himalayas and the bank of holy river Mother Ganges. From time immemorial, the Himalayan Mountains have been home for countless Sages and Saints. Their knowledge has been passed down and is referred to as the knowledge of the Himalayan Masters.
Our school has its roots in this ancient knowledge. We teach Yoga from this ancient perspective and our teaching will help you on your personal journey as much as in your ability to share this knowledge.
