Darjeeling - "Queen of the Hills"
The Himalayan region of India is a place long associated with Buddhism, meditation and yoga, and is also believed to be the area where yoga originated.
Darjeeling is an enchanting and very popular hill-station in the beautiful Himalayas , also known as “queen of the hills”. It is famous for its lofty snow-capped mountains, UNESCO world heritage toy train and beautiful tea gardens. It derives its name from the Tibetan word “Dorjee-ling”, which means “place of the thunderbolt”. Darjeeling is also nested in an altitude of almost 7000ft and shares its border with Nepal in the west, and Bhutan in the east.
Darjeeling’s land inhabits a green slope with diverse varieties of flora and fauna including Rhododendrons, Orchids, Magnolias, different varieties of coniferous pines and ferns. The majestic views of India’s highest mountain, Kanchenjunga, is considered the tallest mountain in the world for centuries and has baffled travelers since time immemorial.

What Can You Expect?
Our training is realistic and doesn’t promise to make you a guru in 4 weeks time. However, as one of the leading yoga certification programs worldwide, we guide you through a course that serves as an excellent stepping stone to enter the vast profound knowledge and philosophy of yoga. An intensive 4-week program that covers various aspects of yoga fundamentals and an exploration into transforming our weaknesses into our strengths and source of power.
The course is designed in a way as to not only serve the physical needs but also to break the mental limitations of our students. Our yoga teacher training includes advance physical postures to less intensive and more restorative sessions. During all our yoga certification programs, we introduce students to the various styles of Hatha yoga and its contemporary practices such as Ashtanga yoga and multi-styled themed Vinyasa flow. We focus on accurate alignment of these styles, cues on commands, physical and spiritual awareness of dynamic yoga postures.
Classical yoga philosophy of Patanjali Yoga Sutras is intertwined throughout the course. Introduction to many aspects of ancient and contemporary meditation, Pranayama breathing techniques, Ayurveda and its relationship with yoga, scientific benefits of Sanskrit mantra chanting, yoga mudras, Kriya inner cleansing techniques and various other elements that make yoga a complete practice. You will leave the course truly open with a new understanding of yoga, your ability to relate to this world, and most importantly, to yourself.
Our syllabus is carefully tailored to provide our students with the tools needed for teaching and deepening self-practice. Technical workshops will emphasize the more demanding and advanced postures along with a breakdown of various styles and a thorough introduction and immersion into its alignment and adjustments. These workshops are held and practiced to assess the progress being done in our everyday Asana practice session. The yogic Asanas are enjoyable and interactive with an opportunity to explore the limitations and intelligence of our physical body.
“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” – The Bhagavad Gita
Our course introduces teaching methods starting the second week. We provide our students with numerous opportunities to work on their stage fright, cues on commands, correct instruction, and knowledge of specific postures. At the end of each class, group feedback is given by teachers and students, pointing out their strengths and areas where they can improve. In the final week, students will design and deliver a full Vinyasa yoga class as part of their final exam, which will be guided by our teachers. We encourage creativity and imagination here. As ultimately, it will transform our students to develop fully as bright yoga teachers ready with all the tools and techniques to teach after the completion of our program.
Our yoga certification programs are specially designed to understand the student and help them nourish not only their physical ability but also their capacity to react to every situation with grace and yogic ethics instilled in them.

In Yogic philosophy, food is one of the primary sources through which we get the cosmic Prana or energy into our system. Our physical body is made of five elements; it’s the imbalance of these elements that causes disease in our body. Hence we carefully select what our trainees eat during the course, making every meal a delightful experience.
