Find the Best Yoga Teacher Training Programme in India

Posted by Suddhaanandyogshala on March 14th, 2016

The last few years have seen a large number of yoga teacher training programmes coming up across India. From centres in Rishikesh (North India), also known as the birthplace of yoga, to centres in South India in Kerala, a well-known centre for Ayurveda, quite a few places across the country offer authentic yoga teacher training courses. These programmes are specially designed for individuals looking to learn the ancient art of health and wellness, and then teach it to other people. Most of the centres are run by yoga teachers who have extensive experience in teaching yoga for decades and are also accredited by various yoga councils around the world.

With the mushrooming of so many centres across India, it is not easy to find a centre that you can trust to impart to you the mandatory 200-hour yoga teacher training programme. This article will look at certain points you need to check before you pick a centre for yourself.

The town or city where the centre is located

Find a centre that is located in a place that is renowned for yoga training. Most of the towns or cities with such centres have formed associations to monitor the institutes and ensure the quality of education is exceptional. They are very strict with all members and do not allow any charlatan to set up a centre in their town. Also, with so many centres around, the competition is tough and hence, the quality of education, would be high. Ensuring you choose the right town or city, the first step to picking up a good centre.

Course accreditations and recognitions

Most of the professional centres offer accredited courses. Most of these training institutes will have professional websites that provide detailed information on their courses and accreditations. In case, you do not see any such information on their site, then you can email or call and ask about them.

Accommodation, food and facilities

It is essential that you inquire about these basic matters. Check out pictures others have shared on social media or on blogs. Having a clean room to practice your asanas and have a restful sleep is essential. Simple things like a mosquito net or anti-mosquito repellent and clean drinking water will ensure you do not fall ill. In addition, most foreigners are unable to stomach the different Indian foods as they are not used to them. Most of the well-managed centres will provide simple meals that are easy on the stomach and help you keep your focus on the training. Make a list of the essential things you need and check the centre for them.


Since you are planning to take a yoga training course, it may make sense to ask your local yoga teacher or institute about the centres they recommend. They may even give you an introduction to the centre’s authorities. Also, checking with friends, family or acquaintances who have some idea or have undertaken the course themselves will give you a better perspective. There may be reviews by other people on the internet. Checking their reviews and blogs will also help you pick the right centre.
