Yoga Teacher Training in India

A Viņā gives exquisite heavenly music only when its strings are attuned adequately and played upon harmoniously. One of the principal meanings of Yoga is 'Sangati' - harmony. Joy of positive health depends upon harmony between all bodily and mental functions.

Samatva Yogalaya adopts the ancient approach to yoga to inculcate in each student the wisdom that yoga manifests. Teaching and learning is therefore designed in such a way that ethical practices are ingrained automatically in the students at the Yogalaya.
The day begins with the daily regimen (Dincharya) and ancient code of conduct. Activities are planned according to seasonal code of conduct (Ritucharya). The concept of behavior chemistry (Achar- rasayan) is the concept that students are expected to imbibe.
Maharishi Patanjali prescribed certain rules of how a person is expected to act in society (Yama) and how personal code and conduct (Niyama) is the expected and essential behavior for individuals to follow. We at the Samatva Yogalaya expect this behavior terminology to be understood and practiced sincerely and honestly by all students to the best extent possible.
Before students register for the yoga teacher training they must be aware that this traditional teaching will differ from that of the west. There could even be a fundamental difference in the understanding of the yogic path as that which is taught in the yoga schools in the west.
Modified exercises that go by the name of yoga are frowned upon by Samatva Yogalaya and so only those students must apply for the course who are willing to commit to the strict regimen of the school.

Discipline is an integral part of the training program and so the course routine must be strictly observed.
Disrespect to rules and regulations could result in termination of studentship with no refund of fee.
Absenting oneself from the scheduled program without prior permission of the teacher or manager concerned would be construed as a gross breach of discipline.
A student must intimate in advance if they intend to forgo a meal so that there is no wastage of food.
The school does not make arrangements for guests of students. Any activity that is not related to the course is not permitted.
Ensure you are on time for class or you will not be permitted to enter any class once it has commenced.
Before departure from the school, students must payy all dues and return all library books.
Smoking and alcohol are not permitted during the training.

All aspirants are advised to carefully consider the time and resources required for the course before forwarding the application for the teacher training course. The deposit submitted with the application is not refundable. However, in case of emergencies and other unavoidable exigencies management of Samatva Yogalaya at its discretion permits students to go for any other forthcomimg course. We therefore recommend that all applicants carefully examine their upcoming obligations so that they may be able to devote their full attention to the teacher training program.

300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Review by G. van Leeuwen

Life changing experience

I followed the 300 hour yoga teacher training from November to December at Samatva Yogalaya. It has enriched me in so many aspects. Krishna and Sangeeta welcome you in their family. They are very warm personalities. You quickly feel at home in the ashram. In addition, they are both sincere Yogis. They practice the yogic lifestyle genuinely. No false pretensions. Both Krishna and Sangeeta are excellent teachers. They have an enormous treasure of knowledge that they share with you. They are approachable, are open to all questions that might arise in you and they always know a way when your body encounters an obstacle in asanas. “You get what you deserve” Krishna always says. I am so lucky we deserved each other. For me these weeks were sometimes confronting, but always positive and safe. I have learned so much! Thank you, Krishna and Sangeeta for your unwavering commitment, your energy, love and knowledge. I cherish the time with you. We'll keep in touch!
