Fiamma Frisone about Yoga Teacher Training Course (240 hours, RYT 200 Yoga Alliance Certificate) in February-March 2015 (2016-10-24 00:34)

I completed my 240 Hour Teacher Training Course at the Himalayan Yoga Academy in March 2015.

It was one of the most enriching and life changing experiences I have undergone. The overall course allowed me to face and overcome some of my greatest fears. The teachers were all wonderful as they each provided a different yet inspiring and authentic approach to the practice of yoga. I made so many amazing friends that I still keep in touch with and learnt so much more about myself during the 6 week course.

I left India with a new zest to want to learn everything I could about Yoga and am so grateful for the time I had there.

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.

I've been there. It was an amazing experience.

It is difficult to find a good place to learn yoga. You know it's only a month and a half, and it is a lot of knowledge. But this school is a truely good one.

A big Russian influence make a really good and organized teaching programm (you don"t find this everywhere in India! ^^).

Class are very clear (even for those who don't have a very good english ;-)). Planning is intense but the time is nicely use.

Teachers there are passionate and make you love yoga more than when you start ( I didn't thought that was possible :-)) But not only.

You can't change a lot in that time (even with a strong mind) but after this course you have a knew comprehension about Yoga, about you, about the life around you...

At the end you are really proud of what you did and very happy<>/em to have this knew knowledge in your life. It is hard to find the right words.

And you will meet people from all parts of the world loving Yoga, India, and travel like you! A lot of good vibes from all people I met there.

Have a nice trip :-)!

This is one exceptional yoga teacher training program that's built around professional approach to education, honesty and faith in yoga. It's probably the best yoga training school in India and far abroad.

This is a great place helped me to become a yoga teacher! I think this is the best place from which you can start becoming a good yoga teacher. Because the Academy offers you different teachers and different directions. Gathered in one place at once the best teachers in Rishikesh. I like that every minute we used for study and time was used efficiently. I liked the tests and examinations that the reminded me my student's time and helped to deepen knowledge. I liked the care that the staff showed us! I was delighted with the food and a wide variety of dishes. I found a lot of friends in this place! I love this place and will always advise it to my friends!

The program was very detailed and well planned/organized. There was a strong emphasis on safety for students as well as teachers. Creativity and finding your own teaching style was also welcomed and encouraged. The variety of classes kept things exciting as well as helping to foster a diverse learning program. The staff was WONDERFUL and truly contributed to my great experience!
