If you are looking for an authentic yoga teacher training experience in a beautiful natural environment, the Yoga Institute Goa is a top choice. Located at Chorao Island, it offers an exotic, serene atmosphere, where one can rediscover the self.
The Yoga Institute, Santacruz (East), Mumbai, India was founded in 1918 by Shri Yogendraji, and is the oldest centre of yoga in the world. Shri Yogendraji believed that yoga was not meant exclusively for bearded men living in the mountains, and he wanted to bring it to householders—the men and women who have to work, toil, commute, earn a living, raise children, and fight the battle of life every day. He wanted to bring it to people living in the town and the city because he believed that the householder could benefit immensely from this knowledge. This is why Shri Yogendra is known as the Father of Modern Yoga Renaissance.
The Yoga Institute is a pioneer when it comes to designing courses, retreat modules, corporate training, etc. that will teach you to bring out the best in yourself through a scientific yogic approach.
200 Hour Basic Teacher’s Training Certification (TTC) is a 26 days basic training course which prepares/certifies students for teaching Yogic Techniques to normal healthy adults and school children. This course starts on the first of every month. It covers the theoretical and practical aspects of Yoga.
