500 Hour Certification Yoga Teacher Training India - Review

AYM Yoga school ... What can I say? I have spent 10 weeks completing my 500-hour teacher training course here, and it has been one of the best experiences. The school is like a family where you feel welcome from day one. The yoga teachers are both a mixture of experienced yogis to new each one playing a valuable part in the course syllabus. From meditation, Ashtanga, Hatha, philosophy, yoga therapy, anatomy, physiology, Ayurvedic medicine. Your understanding of what Yoga is will deepen beyond what you could ever think. The accommodation is clean, complete and peaceful. The school is set far enough away from busy Laxman Jhulla so the natural sounds of the stream, cows, crickets, etc. are your only disturbance. Close enough to enjoy the widest shopping options available during your free time.
3 meals a day, masala tea and friendly staff. You won't starve.
Initially, when looking for a yoga school in Rishikesh, I was drawn to the more advertised, reviewed places and was aiming to go to another yoga schools India. However, I believe that option fell through because it was not meant to be and somehow I found this school. AYM School, Mahesh and his family I can't thank enough, what they have taught me is priceless. I have grown as a person, appreciating that happiness is beyond what you have/want, I have lived 10 weeks with a smile on my face surrounded by people with such strong auras and kind hearts.

Yoga Teacher Training in India
5 / 5 stars


YTTC should put emphasis on ALIGNMENT of poses, in which teacher focuses on the different movements of muscles of the body according to principles of anatomy and physiology of human body. It helps in fast learning and mastering different poses. Once a student became good in the knowledge of adjustments, s/he can teach yoga impressively and without injuries. The science of alignment is first time stated by great yoga master B.K.S. Iyengar also by AYM Yoga ashram in Rishikesh India. Our all courses at AYM consider alignment. Correct alignment can reduce aches and pains and improved posture faster, as the body moves into correct alignment, less muscular effort is needed and person naturally relaxes in asana.
