India, the source country of yoga, is the perfect place to begin your transformative journey within this discipline, move towards a more meaningful life,  and gather tools for developing the mind, body and spirit.

Akshi Yogashala planted a seed in the Rishikesh community, committing themselves to leading people along the path of yoga. Rising from humble beginnings,  Akshi Foundation’s dream of sharing with people grew patiently like a steadfast seedling in early spring. Now, in full bloom, Akshi is recognized by Yoga Alliance USA, and has expanded to Kerala, India and Pokhara, Nepal. In fact a yoga teacher training is a course where one can deepen their understanding of the various subjects of yoga such as: Asan, Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Kundalini, Anatomy, Philosophy, Adjustment, Meditation, Pranayama, Kriya.

Yoga courses of Akshi Yogashala

Akshi Yogashala offers continuous education programs throughout the year: over a thousand students from across the world have completed more than 500 teacher training courses at Akshi. The type and duration of these programs are as follows: 100 hour (2 weeks), 200 hour (approximately 1 month), 300 hour Yoga teacher training (approximately 1.5 months) or 500 hours (the summary of the 200 hour and 300 hour courses).

The 100 hour Yoga TTC is for those who have little to no experience in yoga. Truly this course will expose them to the fundamentals of yoga and position them to complete their 200 hour here at Akshi or another certified school of their choice.

The 200 hour yoga teacher training is a full time program where participants are eligible for Yoga Alliance USA certification upon completion. In this Yoga TTC students will build strong foundations for teaching yoga with support and guidance from Akshi’s gurus.

The 300 hour will build upon the footing gained during your 200 hour training course, introducing advanced topics to further their journey into yoga. Also upon completion students will be eligible for 500 hour certification through Yoga Alliance USA (Students who completed their 200 hours at another school are eligible to apply for Akshi’s 300 hour program). Lastly, Akshi’s 500 hour offering is a combination of our 200 hour and 300 hour programs.

To make sure the rich culture of India and the traditions of yoga are accessible to those from all economic backgrounds, Akshi Foundation offers scholarships programs where students get a significant decrease in the total cost of fees.

As a student of Akshi Yogshala, my journey has been nothing short of transformative. The instructors impart not only the physical aspects of yoga but also the profound wisdom behind each practice. The supportive community and serene environment create an ideal space for self-discovery and personal growth. Akshi Yogshala goes beyond being a school; it's a nurturing haven where I've not only refined my yoga skills but also deepened my connection to mind, body, and spirit. The personalized guidance and holistic approach make this school a gem for anyone on the path of self-realization through yoga. Grateful to be part of this enriching experience at Akshi Yogshala.

Om, friends 🙏🙏My name is Olga, I completed my training in October 2023. To say that I was satisfied is to say nothing. Yes, I am so delighted ❗️❗️❗️ From the organization, from the attitude towards us as guests, students, to the teaching staff. The entire presentation was in simple and accessible language. It was so interesting that I didn’t even realize how the month flew by. And progress in practice is simply not credible.I spent about half a year choosing a school: I watched programs, read reviews, recommendations - in the end, my choice fell on the Akshi Yogashala School of Yoga.This training allowed me to increase the level of my knowledge in areas that are very important to me:- health;- nutrition;- how to balance the psyche and mind;- how to fill life with meaning and peace;- how to achieve harmony with nature.My personal opinion is that it is impossible to live a long, active, joyful, healthy life without Yoga. And learning the practice itself needs guidance; it is absolutely useless to learn Yoga from books or video courses; it is better to take your time and find a qualified school with a good staff of teachers.I was lucky with my choice. I recommend it to you too!!! 🙏🙏🙏

doing this Yoga Teachers Training course was one of the best decisions I have ever taken. The team at Akshi is very cordial and helpful. I spent the greatest enriching time of my life there. At Akshi Yogashala, the complete course has been designed wonderfully to equip oneself with the knowledge of not only the outer physical health but also the inner and deeper self.I would recommend everyone who is reading my post, to go for the yoga course at Akshi Yogashala, Rishikesh. Trust me, you will have a wonderful time there😀😊
