Yoga Teacher Training in India
Studying Yoga in India is about imbibing yoga from the source, the land of Sage Patanjali. Do you know Patanjali may have lived about 900 B.C. or about 3000 years ago? Are you aware that Patanjali Yoga Sutras are aphorisms which may have been the first codification of yoga? There is a seamless intertwine between the physical Asanas, meditative practices and the deep rooted philosophy. A yoga teacher should focus on these deeply interconnected dimensions. Our Yoga teacher training in India helps you to fully utilize these resources. Are you aware that in India, there are yoga Universities that impart exlusive yoga training? Did you know that Ajarya is a unique RYS which offers TTC in Ashtanga Yoga? What would be a standardized learning / teaching / evaluation methodology for teacher training in yoga? As Swami Vivekananda said, "Combine the best of the East with the best of the West!"

Did you know that Swami Vivekananda gave the term Raja Yoga (King of Yoga) for the Patanajala or Ashtanga Yoga System?

Teacher Training Reviews
"...Overall, fantastic course, lovely teachers, great food and I was so happy the hotel had a rabbit - it really made me feel at home! (So sad he is now missing) !! Wow, an incredible experience with incredibly kind, knowledgeable and sincere teachers in a beautiful, tranquil location. Thank you, Ajarya!"
Sally Crane, - U.K.
"I am very grateful for compassion and love to your work and work of teachers here. They were beautiful, taking care of us and all our needs and even spending their free time with us. True devotion, compassion and help for anything we needed. Doing yoga in practice - this where I learned the most about practice of yoga - through being the perfect yogic example!"
Michelle Ternovsek, - Russia
My experience at Ajarya was excellent. I feel that all the relevant teaching and yoga material was thoroughly good. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to improve their own practice or teaching.
Robert Mayer, - Toronto
The teachers, especially Nagesh and Swami ji were so knowledgeable, sincere, humble, kind, sensitive, caring, genuine individuals. They gave so much of themselves, in a way that was so clear and vivid. I wish Swami ji had taught a lot more. He is truly a gift with whom our entire class felt so connected. I am so happy I chose this program. The equal emphasis given to the philosophical, spiritual, anatomical, historical and pragmatic application of yoga were in perfect balance. This program was so well done and inevitably life changing. I feel prepared to be a yoga teacher and a life-long yoga student. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. Peace and Light. Namaste!
Sonasha Braxton - U.S.A.
I had a great experience here and developed so much spiritually, emotionally and physically. I am grateful to have such good guidance for all my future yoga classes and to have had such caring, kind and dedicated instructors here. I feel I have come so far in my asana practice in the past month and also really understand the yoga habits and I am confident going forward that I will be able to incorporate them into my life. I am also grateful that coming from a westernized yoga background, I was able to learn from very traditionally-based teachers and understand the benefits of carrying those traditions down through the ages. Thanks for all your hard and positive energy and also for being so receptive to our dozens of questions!

I chose to study at Ajarya because they looked professional on the website. I was pleasantly surprised to find they were not only professional, but also knowledgeable, friendly, open and fun. I would highly recommend the Ajarya Yoga Academy to anyone with an interest in Yoga...
Nick, - Australia
Thank you for a great time and a great education. I really felt taken care of through the whole program, everything from first contact to accommodation to teaching, to free time (such as visiting sights, going to the doctor and getting a surprise party for my birthday) really was well arranged and high quality...
Josefin, - Sweden
I loved my time with Ajarya and would do 300 more hours if I could! Nagesh and Prajith are so incredibly kind, caring, and knowledgeable. I have the deepest respect for them as both my teachers and my friends. My yoga asana practice has improved more than I ever imagined was possible. Ajarya has inspired me to try to embody yoga and its philosophy in all that I do. I feel lucky to have been a part of Ajarya.
Ilana Madorsky, - U.S.A.
