100 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh

Guru Yogpeeth - Rishikesh, offers inexpensive and residential 100-hour yoga teacher training in India. This course is ideal for people who want to deepen their knowledge of yoga and wish to become professional yoga teachers. The 100-hour YTT caters to yoga practitioners at the beginner level.

Time is one important factor that sometimes prevents yoga practitioners from covering all the aspects of the course. Guru Yogpeeth has divided the 200-hour course into two phases, each lasting two weeks.

Yoga practitioners who are interested in completing a 100-hour YTT but lack time to do so can start with yoga teacher training for two weeks. After completing the first phase of two weeks, one can move forward and sign up for the second two-week course of our scheduled 200-hour yoga teacher course at their convenience.

Upon completion of both phases and having successfully passed the final assessments that take place during the last week of a 200-hour yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh, India, students will receive an international certificate: RYT 200, Yoga Alliance, USA.

Students who join us for our 100-hour certification are eligible to return to Guru Yogpeeth - Rishikesh at a later date to complete their training toward a 200-hour certification. It is necessary to complete 100 hours of yoga teacher training to earn the RYT-200 designation from Yoga Alliance, USA. Guru Yogpeeth welcomes you to accommodate in the serene landscape of the yoga school and get the chance to become a certified yoga instructor in the world’s yoga capital, Rishikesh.
