I cannot express enough how grateful I am for choosing Himalaya Yoga Valley to equip me with the tools I needed to feel confident as a teacher. The course had the perfect balance between all elements of traditional yoga.

The teachers were experienced, supportive, and knowledgeable across the board. I felt extremely safe throughout my time at the yoga centre, which was something I felt a little apprehensive about before embarking on my journey.

I would highly recommend this teacher training for those wanting to learn from a traditional school that's close to the source of the yoga.

Lots of people have taken our trainings with no plans to become a Yoga Teacher and just want to build their knowledge of yoga and improve their personal practice. Our four week course is the perfect foundation for anyone who simply wants to learn traditional yoga and integrate this incredible practice into their life.

Style of yoga
During the Yoga Teacher Training programme you will learn a unique blend of traditional yoga styles:

Ashtanga Vinyasa

Our Level I Yoga Teacher Training Practice Sequence is founded in the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series, a dynamic and flowing style of yoga that builds strength, flexibility and focus.

Iyengar Yoga

To compliment the Ashtanga style we also teach the fundamentals of Iyengar yoga, particularly focusing on precise alignment in poses, and the use of props and modifications to make the practice safe and accessible for all levels.

Himalayan Tradition of Yoga Meditation

Our school director Yogacharya Lalit is a student of a long tradition of yoga from a direct line of Himalayan Masters. Lalit studied under his master Swami Veda Bhati and Grandmaster Swami Rama, who founded the famous Himalayan Institute, and on our Yoga Teacher Training you will learn meditation and philosophy in alignment with this ancient lineage.
