Yoga Teacher Training in India - Week 4

500-hour yoga teacher training in India


We have made it through one month of our yoga teacher training in India. I feel so close with all of my fellow students, we all release a lot this week and the energy feels much lighter now. I personally have shifted a lot since being here and am back in a space of feeling grateful and present for each moment in India. Rishikesh is a holy city and is fully vegetarian. I am vegetarian and it is nice to know that there is not any meat being prepared anywhere here. It is like a different world, a world that is connected to nature. Living in oneness with nature keeps things real. Sometimes I look around and see the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains and see a monkey and think wow, here I am, in Rishikesh. It is so surreal!

If you visit India take advantage of all the amazing ayurvedic products you can buy here for so cheap and definitely get yourself some treatments! I had the most amazing massage yesterday where they pour oil on your third eye and…

Yoga Teacher Training in India - Week 3

Image
After three weeks of intense yoga teacher training things came up for me literally and metaphorically. I feel that I have grown more in this week than I thought possible. I got sick and for anyone traveling anywhere in India, I recommend taking a probiotic, oil of oregano and a wellness formula daily. Emotions come up while traveling in India and it truly is a beautiful healing process. If we don’t ever look at any of the old energy we are holding onto we can’t heal it. I will be the first to admit that it does not always feel good to look at your old beliefs and emotions. But the journey to enlightenment is all about shining light on old beliefs that no longer work, as hard as it may feel at times, so I am truly grateful for this experience. Deep healing was the intention that I set for this training; and you know what they say, ask and you shall receive.

The weather cooled off and it began to rain this week and I feel that the plants are happy; it is lush and green here. Between a…

Yoga Teacher Training in India - Week 2

Image
Things really heated up this week in Rishikesh. It is hot in May, the heat is helping to keep my muscles loose and aiding in detoxification that’s for sure! We continued our 5:30 am to 8:45 pm schedule this week and I really feel that I am getting into the groove of the day and it flows quite well. This week we began to teach to each other in the afternoons. This really gives us the opportunity to learn from each other and receive feedback on how we can improve and become better. We are given the space to discover things on our own, but when the inner guru doesn’t suffice, Krishna or Roshan step in.

We have a new evening yoga instructor, Jeet who is teaching us Ashtanga Vinyasa in the evenings, it is a very challenging class but I leave feeling liberated! After three days of Jeet teaching us we began to break into groups to teach each other sun salutations: Surynamakasar A and B as well as a few other asanas or postures. Repetition of these short sequences creates context for going DEE…

Yoga Teacher Training in India - Week One

Yoga teacher training in India at yoga school Rishikesh Yog Peeth - RYS 200, 500.

I arrived in Rishikesh, India seven days ago to join the 300 hour hatha yoga teacher training at yoga school Rishikesh Yog Peeth. I came here with a purpose of self-healing and to deepen my yoga practice and knowledge. I did not expect that I was about to meet so many amazing new friends. I have never been surrounded by so many beautiful souls. The people who work at Rishikesh Yog Peeth and all the students here are absolutely lovely. Being in the yoga capital of the world on the Ganges River at the foothills of the Himalayas is truly magical. I feel right at home here and can sense a genuine, loving and open vibe from everyone I meet.


We start the day bright and early with morning tea and sinus cleansing using a neti pot, which can feel awkward the first time but it really cleans out your sinuses so you can breathe! After cleansing our sinuses we go up for morning practical, then breakfast with a lot of…

Attributes of an Accomplished Yoga Teacher

Image
Yoga teacher training and instructor courses in India at yoga school Rishikesh Yog Peeth - RYS 200, 500. A good yoga teacher is one who has acquired a good training and is a certified teacher as that is the minimum qualification required to begin teaching. The teacher needs to be familiar with all aspects of yoga in order to answer any questions that a student could ask. Along with parting instructions a good teacher will grow their own personal practice and enhance knowledge on a continuous basis.
Just like the teacher is an individual a yoga teacher must realize that each student is an individual, with individual needs and a body that may not be able to cope up in a collective teaching environment and would need some individual attention. Any teacher who can understand the needs of each of their students by merely studying the body is definitely accomplished. A teacher must understand anatomy so thoroughly that they know exactly what effect the moves are having on the muscles, bon…

Yoga Dreams - Why I Decided to Go to India

Image
I showed up to my first yoga class when I was 16 years old. I can’t remember what got me interested enough at such a young age to pursue it, but I kept showing up every week for more. I think the teacher liked me because I was so young, by far the youngest in her classes. One thing I will always take away from these beginning days are the loving smile and support of my very first yoga teacher, and her wonderfully relaxing savasanas topped off with Bergamot-infused shoulder and neck alignments. That smell is still nostalgic for me today.

I found yoga to be a magical, happy place where anything lingering on my mind would melt away and my body and breath came to life like a well-oiled machine. It was nurturing, honest, luminous. I felt whole.

Over the years, I’ve relocated a few times and explored many yoga studios and teachers. I’ve recently deepened my practice and begun to create my own routines at home, infusing them with meditation and energy practices. For the majorit…

Yoga As Therapy

Image
If you would like to use yoga as a therapy or as an alternative medical treatment then you will have to learn yoga differently than what is offered in a general yoga class. You would probably like to target a particular medical condition like cancer. For this you will require a personalized yoga program and a yoga teacher who is not only trained with good anatomical knowledge but who has experience in conducting yoga classes for someone with your kind of condition.

Yoga Chikitsa or yoga treatment uses natural methods including Ayurveda to treat medical conditions. Yoga therapy is mostly used as a preventative method but is now being used along with other modern medical interventions as a curative measure too. Traditionally yoga is a practice that leads to spiritual awareness and yoga was used to ensure that the body remained in good health so deep meditation, which required being in one position for long periods of time, would not have a negative effect on the body. Today yoga is be…

Importance of Breath in Yoga

Image
Yoga is being seen more and more as a means of merely exercising the body and keeping it slim. Breathing which is the most important aspect of traditional yoga like hatha yoga is being overlooked. Without breathing in the correct way when undergoing yoga asanas the benefits of the asana will only be superficial. Breath is the vital force that energizes the body. It helps to harmonise the body, mind and spirit and when all three aspects are in harmony then healing and immunity will ensue naturally. Somehow we have forgotten how to breathe in a deep and beneficial way through the belly. We all breathe in a shallow way and through the chest. This does not bring oxygenated breath to the lungs fully and so does not circulate in the body with energy.
Besides the physical benefits, breath is the source that can take us to through that space where peace is supreme and this can only be achieved through the correct method of breathing which makes us aware of our internal selves. While doing y…

Yoga in Rishikesh

Image
The picturesque town of Rishikesh has some of the best yoga schools in India. The reason for this, simply put, is that the lower Himalayas form a soothing backdrop that augments the practice of yoga on the banks of the Ganges River.
