Release Your Fears and Realign Body with Spirit


This course brings to life the age-old wisdom and authentic science of the yoga of India – in the very place where yoga was born and where the subtle vibrations of the mystical and deeply spiritual reverberations of this sacred land and nature are still alive and palpable.


A unique feature of our training is our approach to asana practice: The asanas are practiced and taught in the Rajadhiraja tradition of Tantra yoga, offering ancient knowledge on the deeply transformational effect of asanas with regards to our hormonal and chakra system - rarely taught in other yoga schools. You will learn and practice 108 of the most important asanas as they relate to healing, chakra balancing, body/mind integration and heart opening. As you will sharpen your teaching skills through in-depth alignment and adjustment workshops, you will develop a new perspective of yoga and life itself. You will also be encouraged to develop your creative skills in yoga teaching and sequencing for theme-based classes. Furthermore, we will explore a variety of yoga styles such as Yin, Anusara, Iyengar, Power yoga, Hot yoga, Sivananda and Vinyasa so as to compare the sequencing effects of each style.


Another unique feature is lifelong personalized mentoring offered by Ganga Devi, the principal teacher on this course, to those who wish to receive guidance after the completion of their training. Ganga has taught and practiced yoga and meditation for more than thirty years. She has also trained and performed as a professional dancer of Bharatanatyam – the classical dance of India.
She passionately uses her special gift of bringing people together in ceremony to connect, sing, dance, heal and release. With her intricate knowledge about the use of breath she skilfully uses a unique system of breathing and breath retention when adapting yoga as a therapy for the body, mind and soul. Ganga is also a talented musician and nada yogini (sound healer), sharing bhajans, kirtan and Indian raga music to complement the deeply transformational work she undertakes on each of the 300h programmes.

  • "I have been blessed to undertake both my initial 200 hours teaching training up in the Himalayas, and then last year complete my advanced 300 hours teacher training in Tamil Nadu with Ganga Devi. She is the most wonderful and and knowledgeable teacher I have come across in my 21 years of personal practice and shares an inner depth of spirituality that has changed my life. Being able to immerse yourself in your teacher training without the distractions of everyday life is a wonderful experience and I believe allows you to focus on the materials and your training and personal development in a much more thorough way. The training materials are varied, in depth and gives a holistic approach to teaching yoga - true yoga, not a fitness exercise class. Being able to train in India, the home of yoga is a real blessing and brings an entirely deeper aspect to the course. The additional trips/ visits are a wonderful way to immerse yourself deeper in the local culture. I particularly enjoy the kiirtan, singing the beautiful songs and the meditation as this is an opportunity to connect with yourself in a much deeper way than you would perhaps otherwise do. The way the course is structured allows you time for formal study and to enjoy the surroundings of the peaceful garden and terrace whilst reviewing your materials and additional practice. Since completing my teacher training I have successfully set up my own yoga business and confidently teach group classes, 1:1 lessons, meditations, workshops, retreats and paddleboard yoga in a wonderfully inclusive and mindful way. Words cannot describe how grateful I am to Ganga and all the wisdom she has been kind enough to share with me over the years. I am very much looking forward to studying with her again in the future. If you are considering completing your yoga teacher training then I highly recommend the Himalayan Yoga Institute."

    Jez Culley, Beaminster, Dorset
  • "The Himalayan Institute Teacher Training is superb in all aspects.  The lovely villa accommodation, in a peaceful, beautiful, and secluded setting, provides delicious yogic meals and charming, attentive staff. Logistics were planned and executed with efficiency and comfort, including transportation and extraordinary outings.  No request seemed to be too much trouble for teachers, staff, and host. Best of all I was taught so much more than I even expected.  Thorough instruction was provided in all aspects of how to teach effective, individualized, safe, and therapeutic yoga classes.  Curriculum and resources provided were substantive and extensive. I learned more than just the physical aspects teaching asanas.  I was also inspired by learning the history, philosophy, and spirituality of yoga. Being provided with daily guidance in meditation and bhakti yoga has transformed my life. Ganga Devi, director and extraordinary teacher, lovingly and selflessly offers to provide resources, information, and assistance even after training has concluded.  There are no words to adequately express how much this training and Ganga have done to enhance my personal spiritual development."

    Barbara Graff, Thetford, Norfolk
  • "What I liked most about this training? Ganga, the principal teacher! I could not have had a better experience. Ganga was the light in all our hearts, a true yogini and a very skilled and experienced teacher. Ganga, you make all of the teachings deeply fascinating and you kept us in the moment every time you taught. I feel that I have made immense progress and that my future practice will be way more stable and interesting. I will keep riding the wave and yoga will be the center of my life. The accommodation and facilities were perfect! Very subtle and sentient setting. The food was brilliant and I always felt that my environment contributed to my practice and a very supportive and tranquilizing way. Ganga's philosophy classes were the highlight of the training and my favourite part of the course. Ganga has such deep passion and understanding. All the subjects were conveyed in a pure and loving way. I simply could not get more excited. I felt like time had stopped. It was a big experience for me. So deeply inspiring. Thank you! I loved every moment of the practical classes and workshops and to have a yogini like Ganga to help your practical experience is a big opportunity. So many years of experience come to expression in Ganga's asana classes. She knows all the postures in profound detail. She is a loving example of what a regular asana practice can do to your being. My own practice and understanding has improved by light years. I am deeply satisfied with this training. It was very informative, inspiring, challenging, loving and enlightening. It feels like everything was meant to be. This course provides true and traditional yoga for the true spiritual seeker. It was beyond all my expectations and I will never forget such a life-changing experience. I am so deeply moved and grateful for having been part of this training. I will keep developing my practice and teaching and I deeply hope to be able to contribute and participate in your future ashram and projects."

4Travel Information


You will need a valid Tourist visa to enter India. To obtain this you will need to contact your local Indian High Commission, fill in the application form, which is usually available to download online, and take it to them or send it in along with the required fee. This can take up to 10 business days (i.e. two weeks) and your visa is activated from the day you get it rather than upon entry into the country. When stating your purpose on your visa form it is best to say Tourism.
Your passport has to be valid for at least another six months.

How to get to Pondicherry?

By flight

If you are travelling from London, you can find inexpensive flights to Chennai and New Delhi via the Skyscanner and Ebookers website:

The best way to travel is to take a direct international flight to Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu. If you arrive by 12 noon you can be part of our pick up, which we will organize from Chennai to Pondicherry. In case you are arriving a day prior to the arrival day, you can stay one night in Chennai and we will recommend a guest house where you can spend the night. The other option is to fly to Delhi and then take a domestic flight from Delhi to Chennai. You will have to get to the domestic airport from the international Indira Gandhi Airport, which is easy as both airports are next to each other. You can book your internal flight via cleartrip:

Arrival and departure

  • You would want to arrive on the first day of the course by 12 noon at Chennai airport, and depart on the last date in the evening. When you arrive you will have a chance to relax, unwind and recuperate from your travel. In the evening you’ll get to meet others on the training over dinner and your yoga trainings' programme will start the following morning.
  • We will organize a group transfer from the airport in Chennai on the arrival day at about 12.00 noon. In case you are arriving later on that day you would have to make your way to the yoga house on your own, however we can help with contact details of a taxi company we use.
5Excursions and Other Activities

Visit to Mahabalipuram

You will have a chance to see Mamallapuram (or Mahabalipuram) on the way from Chennai to our venue. Mamallapuram is a UNESCO protected heritage site, displaying gorgeous stone carvings and temple structures of great beauty. Mahabalipuram is an ancient historic town and was a bustling seaport during the time of Periplus (1st century CE) and Ptolemy (140 CE). Ancient Indian traders who went to countries of South East Asia sailed from the seaport of Mahabalipuram.

By the 7th century it was a port city of the South Indian dynasty of the Pallavas. It has a group of sanctuaries, which was carved out of rock along the Coromandel coast in the 7th and 8th centuries: Rathas (temples in the form of chariots), Mandapas (cave sanctuaries), giant open-air reliefs such as the famous 'Descent of the Ganges', and the Shore temple, with thousands of sculptures dedicated to Shiva. While travelling to our venue on the arrival day, the minibus that picks up students at the airport and from Chennai, will stop in Mahabalipuram for about two hours for sightseeing, exploration and lunch.

Excursions to Auroville, Pondicherry and Tiruvannamalai

We will visit Auroville (City of Dawn) is an experimental township in Villupuram district mostly in the state of Tamil Nadu, India with some parts in the Union Territory of Pondicherry (Puducherry) in South India.. The city is dedicated to the vision of Sri Aurobindo.It was founded in 1968 by Mirra Alfassa (known as "the Mother") and designed by architect Roger Anger. As stated in Alfassa's first public message in 1965,
Auroville wants to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony, above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realize human unity.
— Mirra Alfassa

Pondicherry will be another destination. Pondicherry, called Puducherry in the local language, is a unique town, which used to be a French colony, hence it combines French and Indian architecture. It is a unique city like no other in India, where India meets France with all the uniqueness of each style in architecture and culture. Many streets retain French names, and French-style villas are a common sight. In the French quarter, the buildings are typically colonial style with long compounds and stately walls. The Indian quarter consists of houses lined with verandas and with large doors and grilles. These French and Indian style houses are preserved as they are considered heritage buildings. The French language can still be heard in Puducherry. We will visit temples, the promenade and the Aurobindo ashram in Puducherry.
The second excursion will be to the small town of Tiruvannamalail, which has a longstanding spiritual history and inhabits the famous Arunachala hill, considered to be the heart centre of the Earth. Here the legendary sage Sri Ramana lived and guided many spiritual seekers. One of the largest temples dedicated to Shiva has been built here.
Annamalaiyar temple: Shiva is worshiped as Annamalaiyar or Arunachaleswarar, and is represented by the lingam, with his idol referred to as Agni lingam. His consort Parvati is depicted as Unnamulai Amman. The presiding deity is revered in the 7th century Tamil Saiva canonical work, the Tevaram, written by Tamil saint poets known as the nayanars and classified as Paadal Petra Sthalam. The 9th century Saiva saint poet Manikkavasagar composed the Tiruvempaavai here. The temple complex covers 10 hectares, and is one of the largest in India. It houses four gateway towers known as gopurams. The tallest is the eastern tower, with 11 stories and a height of 66 metres (217 ft), making it one of the tallest temple towers in India. The temple has numerous shrines, with those of Annamalaiyar and Unnamulai Amman being the most prominent. The temple complex houses many halls; the most notable is the thousand-pillared hall built during the Vijayanagar period.

Ramanashram: This ashram is dedicated to the contemporary sage Sri Ramana. As a boy of sixteen in 1896, he challenged death by a penetrating enquiry into the source of his being. Later hailed as Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi he revealed the direct path of practice of Self-enquiry and awakened mankind to the immense spiritual power of the holy Arunachala Hill, the spiritual heart of the world. An ashram did not spring up immediately. At first there was only a shed with bamboo poles and a roof of palm leaves. Through the ensuing years the numbers grew, donations came in and regular ashram premises were built – the hall where Ramana sat, the office, the bookstore, the dispensary, the guest room for male visitors and a couple of small bungalows for guests who made a longer stay. A group of sadhus made a colony at Palakottu in a grove to the west of the ashram. Over the years the ashram has seen a growing number of visitors. A special highlight is the room where Sri Ramana used to spend most of the time – today it is open for those who want to meditate or simply sit there in silence.
