200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
"Hello to everyone! One week ago I finished my teacher training course in Rishikesh Yog Dham. It lasted for a month during summer 2013. Want to share with you what I feel about it and what I learned doing this course. Although its difficult to make a right choice browsing online looking for a yoga school coz there’re hundreds of them, but It was exactly what I wanted – intense program, a bit remote place with a great view, personal attention from teachers, meditation, pranayama, and yoga-yoga-yoga."

Yoga Retreat Rishikesh
"I had one of life-changing experience in Teacher training course of Rishikesh Yog Dham. It is a pleasure to know good teacher like Arvind who is willing to share his knowledge and experience with his students. I could say Arvind is a best teacher in my life.
Course was quite intensive and I made a big progress even though I was totally beginner and slowest student. I learned not only how to teach yoga but also much more than I expected-Best thing I learned was that I can do more than I think-the moment will come if keep trying if it looks like a long way"
