Their 100hrs yoga teacher training course lasts for 12days. This is the first part of the 200hrs yoga teacher training course. The 100hrs course is designed for those who cannot take 24 days time off to complete 200hrs yoga teacher training course with them. After you complete the 100hrs course, you can take their second half of 100hrs yoga teacher training either online or offline anytime you wish to do so. The 200hrs goes for 24 days. This is the minimum certificate to call yourself as a certified yoga teacher. From this level, you can register yourself as an international yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance USA. Himalayan Yoga Association offers the best 200 hours yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh, India. If you have time but don’t know if you want to commit yourself for 2 whole months with 500hrs course, this is the best entrance level of yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh.
The next one is 300hrs yoga teacher training course. This is the course for those who have successfully completed their 200hrs yoga teacher training course accredited by Yoga Alliance USA. This course lasts for 28 days. Himalayan Yoga Association has 2 spacious and clean yoga halls in their campus. The 200hrs and 300hrs students study and practice in those two different yoga halls. You will be learning and practicing in an advanced level. 200hrs yoga teacher training course is the foundational course, and 300hrs course is for those who already know the foundation. A lot of the 300hrs course participants at Himalayan Yoga Association are already teaching yoga in some extent, and you will surely feel their dedications to the study and practice is higher than 200hrs course. The last option is 500hrs yoga teacher training course. If you have time to take 58 days off dedicate yourself in the learning, this is no doubt the best 500 hours yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh, India. This is the combination of 200 hours and 300 hours yoga teacher training courses, and one of the biggest benefits by taking this course is that your yoga teachers will know how much you have learnt by the time you complete your first month, and have a consistency in teaching for the 2 months until your last day. If you take 200 hours and 300 hours yoga teacher training course separately, even though all the courses that are recognized by Yoga Alliance are following the curriculum, there will be overlapping and missing of learnings between the first and the second month. Also, when you spend time in their yoga school for more than a month, you will start having a feeling of actually residing there, and you can go deeper into your learning and practice without over excited about exploring here and there.
I have given you a summary of those 4 different offline yoga courses of Himalayan Yoga Association, which is undoubtedly the best yoga school in Rishikesh. If you are still hesitating to quit your current job or not able to take a time off, they also offer all those four yoga teacher training course online. Yes, online courses are recognized by Yoga Alliance USA as well. Even though both offline and online courses are available and give you the same credibility of the certificates, learning and living in the school campus with full of authentic staff and yogic students are definitely the best option.
