World Peace Yoga School

World Peace Yoga School is a Yoga Alliance certified institution offering 100, 200, 300 and 500-hours of yoga teacher training in Rishikesh in the Hatha and Ashtanga styles. Authentic training can be had in a non-traditional venue--sorry no historic ashram here, but the school is located within the city limits of Rishikesh making historic and sacred sites easy to get to.

200-hours Yoga Teacher Training

This is a 28-day, intensive course designed to give students a broad and thorough understanding of yogic principles, techniques and philosophy in three styles: Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa.

Week One Lectures

Week one highlights include an introduction to Pranayama and lectures on the technical details of Ujjayi breath (yogic breathing).

Week Two Lectures

Week two you'll begin to explore Asana poses and posture analysis. Each posture will be demonstrated complete with appropriate, and not so appropriate, adjustments followed by practice sessions in small groups. Expect to begin dipping into anatomy, meditation and yoga nidra.

Week Three Lectures

Mudra hand gestures are an ancient yogic practice and these affect the energy flow in our bodies affecting a person's spiritual and mental characteristics.
