What are your age limits for course applicants?

There are no age limits for applicants. What could be better than being aspired to learn and improve! If you feel like applying for a course, we won't make an obstacle.

We do have other limitations though. For a yoga teacher training, we expect applicants to have experience in yoga for at least 12 months. Since yoga is more an experiential practice rather than a science, a future yoga teacher should lend himself or herself some time to experience yoga before teaching it to others.

Reviews by graduates

I had a wonderful experience in my 240-hr Yoga Teacher Training at HYA. I knew I wanted to study in India, and this program was recommended to me by my teacher in California and is known for being one of the most organized and holistic training programs in Rishikesh. The teaching staff is extremely qualified, including some of the top teachers in Rishikesh, and diverse, with some Russian, Western, and Indian instructors, which is definitely a benefit to a YTT. There is a strong focus is on structural alignment of the asanas and teaching practice, which was exactly what I was looking for, but also classes on pranayam, mindfulness, and meditation. Overall, my experience in this teacher training brought me closer to my true self, and HYA still holds a dear place in my heart.
