Hatha yoga first appeared in the 9th or 10th century. Although preceding yoga practices and Hatha yoga shared the common goal of controlling the mind and reaching a state of bliss or enlightenment, Hatha practitioners held the belief that this could be achieved more reliably by means of various physical practices, including work with posture, breath and cleansing practices to prepare the body for meditation. The physical asana practice the world now embraces has largely emerged from this tradition. Today, a Hatha Yoga class includes a variety of non-strenuous asanas that are held for an extended period of time with an emphasis on deep, relaxed breathing.
The word “Hatha” is comprised of the root words ‘Ha’, meaning sun and ‘Tha’ meaning moon; denoting the union of opposites. ‘Hatha’ also means force or determined effort. “Yoga” translates as joining together or union. This meaning illuminates the strength and discipline required to unify opposing forces, bringing together body and mind.
100 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh India
Our 100 hour Hatha Yoga Teacher training course approaches Hatha Yoga traditionally as described in the ancient text the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. In addition to the practice and study of a variety of traditional Hatha Yoga poses, the course includes instruction in adjustment and alignment, along with the traditional practices of kriya (cleansing techniques), pranayama (breathwork) and meditation to ensure a fully holistic approach. This course will give you a true understanding of how each of the traditional Hatha yoga practices impact your mind, body and spirit. Across the two 100 hour courses (Part I and Part II), participants gain the tools and confidence necessary to teach and inspire their students from their own experience.
The course is open to all levels of practitioner and will enable you to build a strong foundation for your teaching and personal practice. Please note that although upon completion of the program you will receive a certificate, 100 hours of training will not qualify you to teach. If, however, you are a certified yoga teacher already then the hours can be used in addition to your preexisting certification.

Students are not required to follow a vegetarian diet at home but we request students do not bring meat or prohibited substances to the course in order to respect the local culture and fully experience the benefits of the yoga practices.Courses are conducted in English and so basic English ability is required as students will be required to understand classes in English and practice their teaching in English.
