200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, April 2020

By Yoga Vini
28 Day Insightful Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, 5 April - 2 May 2020 Our profoundly designed course's aim is to show you the depths of the authentic 5000+ years old knowledge and practices of hatha yoga. Our dedicated teachers and well-designed curriculum ensure to bring the best out of you and provide an easy way to understand and implement these techniques, with the goals of a healthy body, peaceful mind and free soul. Our belief is in the importance of the spine; how it is connecting all the outer and innermost levels of your being. Its role makes the ancient tools of asana, pranayama, and meditation more connected and easier to understand. Our approach of teaching is not flashy or glamorous, but it's deeply nourishing and empowering; helping you to avoid the dangers of an impatience or overzealous practice. You'll be empowered with your own understanding of what's really happening in your body as you practice, and how each posture is supporting your overall health.

      Authentic yoga course and sattvic life
      This was the course I was looking for. Authentic teaching of yoga and Ayurveda with experienced and pure teacher. The teaching and ashram life are so well structured and organized. So much knowledge presented in very simple way, easy to follow and easy to relate through your life experience. The food was sooo good and healthy. My digestion improved so much. My skin is glowing, puffiness is gone. I loved asana classes and morning breathing class. Instructions and explanations are so easy to understand and apply. It was so natural for me to concentrate and feel my breath. I improved my breathing so much. Yogi Vini lectures are so special! So eye opening. I loved it. And couldn’t recommend Yoga Vini course more. It is not just a course it is a lifestyle. I will definitely come back for 300h TTC. Thank you Yoga Vini team and Yogi Vini for amazing 28 days 🌺

      What I have learned at yoga VINI is immeasurable. If someone is wondering which yoga school to take, I really recommend Yoga Vini. At first, I joined a different yoga school in Rishkesh, but I felt the school was too business-like and I could not learn the essence of yoga there. Although there was no refund, I did not want to waste my time rather than money, and I decided to change to yoga vini and consulted with Tina(Tina, thank you very very much!). So I was able to take TTC at yoga Vini. I am very happy that I chose yogavini. In the yoga Vini ashram, there were a lot of birds, monkeys and other wild animals living together. It was a very precious time for me to practice facing myself while listening to the sounds of wild animals. Also I am so happy that I was able to gaze at the great realization that "I already have it all", and "I am already full"! I never thought I would have such a wonderful time before I joined there. I fell my greatest respect and appreciation to Tina and Vini and everyone I met at the ashram. thank you. Namaste.

      OM-ing with Vini and Tina
      I stumbled on this rather undercover Yoga school by recommendation. It is really a powerful month spent with one of the most efficient approaches to Hathayoga ever! You will simply fall easily into almost all the Asanas when you do all the preparational and strengthening exercises! Food, lodging also fantastic with a great spiritual atmosphere innthe (Rishikesh) ashram! Also very great spontaneous passionate lectures loved them! Try it, it will change your perspective on Yoga!

      Peaceful days
      Before I joined TTC, I didn’t feel relaxed enough in daily life. During TTC, didn’t have to think about anything except for facing myself because of a well-ordered life. Thanks to that, I realized my own will from the bottom of my heart and happiness that I already have. Teacher Vini put effort into what we eat so we could eat so delicious vegan foods and I could experience body and mind changes. Thanks a lot to teacher Vini and Tina for their love for us.

      TTC April 2023
      I have just returned from Yoga Vini Ashram in Rishikesh having taken part in the 200hr teacher training program. I was nervous before attending the course and was having doubts if I should still go. I’m so glad I did! It tested me mentally and physically more than I could have imagined but it was all worth it! Vini the teacher is fantastic, he really knows his stuff and is a remarkable teacher ( he’s also really funny and very kind natured, always happy to chat with you and answer any questions you have about life. The experience has made me a better person and has given me knowledge to go through life stronger . I now feel mentally balanced, able to be tackle the rat race back home in the UK. The ashram is stunning full of nature and the ayruvedic food never gets boring it’s delicious and always fresh! If you’re undecided, I definitely suggest just going for it, it will change your life! Hatha yoga at it best with a teacher who really takes the time to care and share his wisdom. Thank you Vini and thank you Tina for all you did to help us :)

      A Deep Dive Into the Heart of Yoga
      I took the 200 hr Yoga TTC course in April and it was hands down one of the greatest gifts I could have given to myself. The location is so peaceful and beautiful, the food is delicious and pure, and the teachings go deep into yogic philosophy, lifestyle, and practice. Vini is a true Yogi, who lives what he teaches, and has deep knowledge to share with his students. The way he connects everything was very helpful for me to better understand myself and life. I am so grateful to him, Tina, and the rest of the team that made this experience worth while, and could not recommend this course enough! If you want to learn true Hatha yoga and even dive into it's connection to Ayurveda, this is the place. Truly a way back to life.

      Full heart
      The experience we should all have at least once in our lives . I feel a huge urge to share how stunning I feel after this immersion of taking care of myself and also the other. I came looking to be with myself and to know myself better but I discovered that taking care of myself and having respect for my body and for what it tries to tell me many times but I couldn't hear because of the hustle and bustle that is my life and mind. Thanks a lot to teacher Vini for all his love for yoga and for sharing everything with us in such an easy to trust way. Thanks to Mitra for dedicating his time and joy to help, to my dear Riluu who is a hurricane with so much energy and has a big heart, to Kiki for being attentive to everyone, to Ashish for being so approachable and enjoying sharing conversations, to Shuban for doing the most amazing backstage work ever and to the cooks for allowing me to have the best and most suitable food during all these days. But a special thank you to the whole group that shared this experience with me, you are all very special and proof that Language doesn't matter Love is universal. I will keep you forever in my heart. thank you.

      Yoga Vini is Incredible
      I completed my 200hr certification a year ago now. I wanted to leave it for some time before I gave a review as I thought I could give more and make it more meaningful. I can confidently say that this is absolutely worth your time, whether completely new or an experienced yogi. Vini goes into great detail about the impacts of yoga on the body and mind, and also the philosophy. What I learned has changed my daily habits (right down to how I walk) and impacts my movement positively in all movements that I do, including other forms of exercise. The location of the school is just lovely. Such a nice wee town on the river. The food provided by the school is great, the accomodation is really nice and the instructors are also great. Yoga Vini provides you with the full experience, this is so much more than just the asana.

      Best investment of time.
      I will start review with a confection. Before coming to Yoga Vini I saw myself as an experienced yoga practitioner. After all I was practicing every day for about 7 years. I was sooo wrong. It is painful to realize that all this years your practice was going into wrong direction. Never ever I was told not to bring movement habits on to the mat. I didn’t even know we can have spine habits. I never heard any yoga teacher talking about the importance of pelvis tilt in the practice before. Long story short... I’m very happy I chose Yoga Vini for my course. So much knowledge I got from the whole team and Yogi Vini. This course took my practice to another level. Highly recommend to everyone. The knowledge you will get here is beyond the mind. Yoga Vini wishing you all the best 🍀❤️

      Very profound Hatha Yoga Teacher Training
      I can really recommend this place for a Yoga Teacher Training! The passionate and experienced team at Yoga Vini teaches you deep knowledge about Hatha Yoga, you`ll learn about anatomy, asanas, pranayama, yoga philosophy and ayurvedic lifestyle. The TTC is accompanied by a healthy lifestyle that includes ayurvedic food, cleansing rituals and several small routines for daily life. This TTC is not about just making it a good time for you, it´s a very intense experience, that could make you struggle, go beyond your mental and physical limits, suffer, cry, laugh and grow. I would definitely choose Yoga Vini again, I had a very good learning experience at this place, had the opportunity to deepen my practice and watch my body and mind change. Rhisikesh is a really nice small town, where Yoga is present everywhere you go. I would strongly recommend to plan some days to spend in this town before or even better after the TTC.

      Yoga practice beyond the asana
      Hello kind seekers, I'd like to share an experience that's a bit over due... I was in search of a teacher and school that would focus on the practice of yoga as a whole within an ashram setting. A school with a greater interest in truly immersing and educating their students in the yogic lifestyle versus handing out certificates just because one paid for a course and a piece of paper. After several recommendations from trusted sources, visiting teachers in drop-in classes in Rishikesh, and reading reviews and experiences from a variety of TTCs in the area, I finally decided on YogaVini school. YogaVini 200hr TTC seemed to be fit for what i was looking for in a course, but after commencing i realized it really was beyond what i was looking for. Vini is an impressive, knowledgeable and passionate instructor who truly knows how to teach in a way that you can easily absorb and digest the information. He makes clear connections through breath, yoga, anatomy, the spine, philosophy, Ayurveda and deeper knowledge. He's meticulous in his technique, which if you're truly interested in learning the foundation of asana and yoga -(and how to give student adjustments)- than this is truly a wonderful place to begin* or improve your yoga practice. The 200hr TTC course is applicable to all levels, because he breaks things down to the point of understanding all of your body movement and breath to minimize injury and improve practice to receive its full potential. Man I really enjoyed the course, the morning priest chanting (waaaah beautiful), Kirtan, and satsang. I could go on and on...but i'll keep it somewhat short. Tina is the other instructor who is enthusiastic to teach every morning, fun, has years of technical experience with proper body movement, technique and she gives clear corrections. Other secondary info: -Appropriate accommodations. -Delicious Ayurvedic meals. -1 weekly free day to go off-site or relax (optional). -Ashram located in the outskirts of Rishikesh in a quiet area close to the Ganga river. -Ayurvedic massage available on free day - (optional...cost not included). -The course is taught 1/2 Japanese & 1/2 English (this will give you time to process information & write down good notes, trust me). -Days mostly run from, 6am to 8pm/10pm with 2 meals & 2 snacks, 1hr karma yoga and 1hr break (some days vary). -Bring dry fruits and nuts to snack on (optional). -Take good notes, you'll need them to complete assignments, the final test and for your own practice. I still read through them. Con: -To be honest, it's quite pricey even though the lessons and material taught are worthy, i do wish it could be a bit more affordable. I understand they give special ayurvedic food and it's on a large property, but still, the price is a bit steep for some who would love to participate in your school. Last i have to say, if you choose this center/school for your TTC than remember nothing will ever be perfect but if you choose, it could be nearly perfect. This experience will be as beneficial as you allow it to be. A HUGE thanks for letting me participate in the April TTC on such a short notice >.< and thank you to all your team for the entire experience and care. Thank you Vini and Tina! Big Hug! Nathalie

      Deep knowledge and personal development
      What a rollercoaster of knowledge, strength of body and mind, struggle and overcoming. I was relatively new too Yoga and did not know what to expect from a TTC. The idea of starting to teach my own classes was totally daunting but this course really equips you with such a solid foundation of knowledge and technique to build upon. Vini is a unique and soulful teacher, he completely lives his work and you can feel his heart in everything he teaches. His classes are vivid and so insightful. I felt a big change in my body but it was my mind that moved the most. I became so aware of how connected everything is and when my mind was not focused my body could not develop. Vini takes you back to your beginning and builds you back up from your roots. There are so many small simple things that are the heartbeat of this course. Tina’s classes were fantastic too, she is so present and moved by the work that you will push through barriers you never expected. This is a real training. If you truly want to learn the philosophy, anatomy and physicality of yoga then this is the right course to do. Find what you love and follow it, this is Yoga. "I'm not dying, my cells are" Thanks for the T-Shirt slogans guy’s!! Thanks to the whole team!!

    I joined the 200hr YTTC on a whim having had no real previous yoga experience. My friend asked me to do the course with her and I figured it would be interesting. I had no expectations entering the course but I can honestly say that my time at Yoga Vini changed my life and the way I work with my body. The course builds you up from the very basics and teaches you the foundations of yoga, starting from the pelvis and spine and expanding from there.

    The knowledge I acquired during this time will continue to shape the way I work with my body, practice yoga and also understand myself. Through an incredibly well structured and well thought out program, the course teaches so much more than just yoga and poses. You learn about yourself, about yoga philosophy, self discipline and how to use a wholistic approach to be not only a better yoga teacher, but also a better version of yourself.

    Vini is a hugely knowledgeable teacher, he is passionate and truly wants each individual to get the most out of the course. Tina is an inspiring and caring assistant and herself, along with the whole team are lovely and want to help as best they can.

    The accommodation is great and Vishal does a really good job of keeping everything running smoothly. The food is very healthy and tasty, you learn to love it ;)

    I cannot recommend this course enough! Thank you Yoga Vini for teaching me ‘a way back to life’ :)
