Students who have previously completed their Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Level 1 training, and want to take their teaching to the next level. The training is also suitable for yogis who haven’t completed Level 1 but simply want to deepen their practice without teaching.
Your path to becoming a Yoga Alliance 500-hour certified yoga teacher is so much more than just learning breathwork and poses; this is your opportunity to progress with your practice, and develop and flourish into a more confident, knowledgeable yoga teacher.
“A month of truly inspirational teaching, wisdom, insight and shared knowledge as well as laughter, joy, tears, release… It is hard to articulate what I received on this beautiful training for it is so much more than words can convey. My heart is full of gratitude and I am ready to share it with others… May the light that I received ignite the light within all those whose path crosses with mine…” – Tanya Marie Green
Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, on the banks of the Holy River Ganges… Rishikesh is thought by many to be the spiritual home of Yoga and it is one of the most beautiful and fascinating places to visit and practice in. The main destinations are Laxman Julha and Ram Julha, two lively and bustling towns that have built up around pedestrian bridges that traverse the river. Here you will find countless Ashrams, Temples, Statues, Yogis, Gurus and Sadhus… not to mention a wide variety of tasty restaurants, shops and stalls.
Our home in Rishikesh is in a peaceful area, a few kilometres outside of town. It’s a large, beautiful Villa in nature with plenty of hammocks and rest-areas to relax in, meditate, or watch the monkeys and birds, and it’s right on the Ganges so you can jump straight in! There’s also a stream and small waterfall that run straight through the property where you can bathe too.
Rishikesh is also a great departure point if you are hoping to explore some other parts of India after; many onward transport options are available, whether you want to visit the Dalai Lama in Dharamshala, or the burning grounds of Varanassi or the source of the Ganges at Gangotri. The options are endless.
The accommodation at Rainforest House is amongst the finest you’ll find anywhere in Rishikesh. The rooms are lovely, the food is exceptional, and the location is divine.
All rooms are beautiful and tastefully decorated and each one has a private bathroom with a hot shower. Filtered water and Wi-Fi is provided, and the food is truly exceptional here – mealtimes are a delicious highlight!
Taking a yoga teacher training in Rishikesh is very special indeed. Even the surrounding mountains vibrate with the magic of thousands of years of Yoga and Spiritual practice. We absolutely love it here and we know that you will too….treat yourself to the best!
Each morning, you will start the day with two hours of asana practice, followed by lectures and discussion. You will then move into practical exploration and teaching skills. The teaching day finishes with Pranayama.
Our Level 2 training is made up of 3 modules.
07:30 – Asana
10:30 – Lectures & Discussion
13:15 – Lunch
15:30 – Practical Exploration, Teaching & Communication Skills
18:30 – Pranayama

Students who complete this training are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as a (RYT®) 500 Hour Certified Yoga Teacher.
Over the course of the training, there will be 3 amazing day trips (included) to either a sacred site or a spiritual event – Path of Yoga is already super excited about what we have planned!
On your days off, there will be many opportunities to explore various ashrams and holy sites, go hiking, get an ayurvedic massage, or even sample the electric atmosphere of Indian markets in the heart of Rishikesh.
In your free time you can relax in the hammocks, bathe in the onsite waterfall, or swim and relax on the pristine beaches of the River Ganges, only seconds from your room. It is truly a divine location.
