The teachers are bursting with knowledge that they are so eager to share with their students and I instantly could acknowledge their passion and desire to do so.

If you are tossing up where to do your training and have found yourself here looking into Himalaya Yoga Valley then I cannot recommend this school enough. They are authentic, traditional and thorough in what they teach and the team are incredible."

Want to become a certified Yoga Teacher

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.
