How your day looks like

Daily Schedule

The daily schedule for a yoga teacher training program in Rishikesh might begin as early as 5.30 to 6 in the morning and finish by 8 to 10 in the evening. You are kept occupied the entire day with challenging yoga sessions under the direction of yoga experts, theoretical lessons to complement it, and other such activities. Thus, getting into shape, adopting a good diet, and reading blogs on yoga training experiences all help one psychologically prepare before the program starts.

You must have an upbeat attitude as you get ready for the day so that it permeates the entire event. Early risers frequently have very well-defined sleep schedules. This means that practicing discipline on the yoga path also entails going to bed early and most likely at the same time every day.

It is common knowledge that food is a vital component and the source of life's energy for the human body. Our physical and emotional health is impacted by the type and quality of the food we eat. When nutrition is discussed from a yogic viewpoint, it encompasses much more than just the food's nutritional value. Since a full-fledged yoga practice necessitates the body's adequate nutritional augmentation, the energetic component of nutrition must also be taken into account while deciding on your diet.

Good news for yogis: Sattvic cuisine is completely vegetarian. As such meals don't include any animal components, and no animals are harmed in their production. Natural farming practices and the absence of any hazardous additives, preservatives, or tastes are required for these goods.

Life changing experience! I have traveled the world over my 58 years on this earth and never experienced this deep, thought provoking guidance. I just wanted to improve my yoga practice. I came knowing NOTHING but I wanted to do correct poses. As I stated, I am 58 years young and only tried yoga a year ago with DVDs and you tube. I recommend this specific school because their is something amazing going on here up in the lush beautiful green hills of Rishikesh, India. Your mind is the only thing holding you back. I found Vinyasa Yoga Academy online while searching for schools. I was drawn to this school and a year later was blessed to come learn not only physical yoga but SO MUCH MORE. I believe, never in the states could I have had this experience for 1/3 the cost AND included room and board and the best weekly outings on our day off.

But de pandemia cames and this plan was over. One day I get to the site to see the class for the next year, and for my surprise they have now online course. Truly it was one of the best choices I had ever made! The teacher have many many knowledge, always answered our questions, explaining the smal details af each asana, the books were incredible with all information and details that I needed. I recomend this online course for anyone who wants to start or go deeper on your journey as yoga teacher, because after doing this I fell that the knowledge is something that I will pass all my life learning and evolving on it! Namaste to all my teachers, and I can't wait for the 300h course!
