The Art Of Teaching Yoga

Teaching yoga is not just teaching, it is a spiritual task. The accomplishment of a 500 Hours yoga teacher training course and obtaining a certification is best, but skills and certification alone will not make you the best quality yoga instructor.

As per best yoga trainers, teaching yoga is an art rather than a science.

If you want to teach yoga ideally, then you must learn to live yoga. Your character and your personal practice are as vital as your technical know-how. When yoga is an integral part of you, it is seen in your classes. Your lovely students will leave the course with a feeling that makes them physically, mentally, and religiously fit.

A 500-hour yoga teacher certification assists you in deepening your connection with your inner being, thoughts, emotions, and feelings. A process that allows you to teach right from your heart and personal experience instead of only one mouth and some memories.

A yoga teacher training program at Living yoga school is a kind of practical course crafted to assist you to be an efficient and confident yoga teacher.

With lots of guidance, you can quickly improve and increase your teaching skills and know-how to structure a class.

Living Yoga School is located on the top of a hill from which you can enjoy the view of beautiful mountains (perfect for meditation especially at sunrise/sunset). The entire staffs are so friendly, helpful and approachable. The teachers are simply amazing and so knowledgeable! I felt part of the family from the very beginning. I would sincerely recommend coming here not only for teacher training course but also to live an experience that will change your life! I cannot wait to join for the 300 hour yoga instructor coaching course! You guys are the best! See you soon!

I did my 200 hour and 300 hour yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh at Living Yoga School. Very good experience during my stay. Rooms, accommodation, food and view from the top are excellent. Most experienced teachers in this school. It is the best place to become yoga instructor. If anyone wants to seek the knowledge of yoga, I recommend them to join Living Yoga School.

I choose Living Yoga School because it was because it was in Rishikesh the yoga capital of the world and it's quite a peaceful little town, none of the chaos and scary atmosphere that people warn me about in India. I was able to walk by myself on the streets and nothing ever happened, I always felt safe during my stay.

I choose the school was because of its complete schedule. Not only focused on yoga but also Pranayama, mediation, anatomy, mantra chanting and ayurveda. All these classes packed into 3 weeks of intense studying and yoga practicing which made me feel I got much more than what I paid for. If you are looking for a complete course this is the one I recommend.

I recommend Living Yoga School for 200 hour holistic yoga course. My teachers were for the most part very dedicated and passionate, really caring about us as students. It was difficult to get up early every morning but because classes were so interesting and the teacher so passionate I got up early everyday because I didn't want to miss a thing.

Trusted yoga teacher training center in Rishikesh. The school also arrange certain outdoor activities; they took us to Kunjapuri temple, a meditation cave and to witness ceremonies in the Ganga River. All truly beautiful and amazing experiences that I really enjoyed.

The 200h YTT Course with Living Yoga School has been much more then expected at all levels. I want to say a big THANK YOU to the whole team, thank you to Guruji for opening the whole world of the Himalayan tradition of Yoga to us, the fantastic philosophy classes and meditation teachings, the connection and support I could feel. Thank you so much to Devesh for being such a competent, supportive and motivating teacher, for sharing not only hatha yoga and alignment knowledge but also knowledge of life and for sharing with us what really means to be a good yoga teacher. I can´t wait to go to Rishikesh and learn with them in person. In this almost 2 months process I started to see clearer into myself and make some important changes in my everyday life, developing more awareness, focus, discipline and joy. I was at first sceptical about an online format, but since the beginning I was really impressed with the online live teaching, the communication, the way everyone was supportive and experienced as well as the quality of the recorded material: so much knowledge and everything so well explained. I could write much more about how inspiring the whole experience was and how much will positivly influence my practice and the understanding of myself. I recommend this School to everyone!
