Our 200 hour, 300 hour and 500 hour yoga teacher training courses are designed for beginner, intermediate and expert yoga students.
Our Yoga Alliance certified curriculum is developed and compiled by our well trained yoga teachers who have years of practical experience.


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. A yoga teacher training is a residential 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.

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. 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 particpants are eligible for Yoga Alliance USA certification upon completion. In this 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. 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.

Located in the heart of Yoga Village, Akshi Yogashala is a short walk from  the culture, restaurants, and shops of Rham Jhula. Close to the tranquil waters of The Ganga, students will be immersed in a peaceful, quiet atmosphere that is perfect for learning.

At Akshi Yogashala our focus is our students. During your time at Akshi you can rest assured knowing that the gurus and staff are here to provide you an amazing experience while you are receiving a quality, affordable yogic education.
