The curriculum covers the fundamental elements of yoga based on essential subjects consisting of pranayama, shat kriya, asana practices, yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy, relaxation (Yoga Nidra) and meditation.  For asana practices, our school focus on Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga styles of asana.  Students will go through 6 days of training with 1 rest day per week.  On this rest day, our school organizes a half-day excursion for students that may involve visits to one of the sacred sites in Rishikesh.  The rest day usually falls on a Sunday, but may be shifted to a weekday to avoid tourists and traffic during high season in Rishikesh.

Carolina Melo Rivera / April 2019100 Hour Yoga TTC in Rishikesh, India
I did a 100h course and I had an amazing time. The location is perfect, not too close to the city but close enough to walk there. The teachers and classes were excellent and I learned so many new things. I especially loved the anatomy class.The accomodation and food was also great. The staff at the school will always help you with everything. I would totally recommend it 100%.
