Full Description

The 200-hour Teacher Training Course with Yogamea is conducted as a residential course to bring you the full experience of what yoga actually means and how a true yogi lives. Yoga follows a tradition where you not only enrich your own life but also the lives of others. A true yogi is one who is compassionate and brings compassion to all he is in touch with and through this spreads peace in the world.

Yogamea delivers their yoga teacher training program in conjunction with Rishikesh Yog Peeth to promote Hatha yoga and yoga philosophy. With the support of Rishikesh Yog Peeth in Rishikesh, India – the “birthplace of yoga”, Yogamea seeks to keep the flavour and the experience of a traditional Hatha yoga practice, with teachers joining us from Rishikesh where possible. The programme will be the same as that held at Rishikesh Yog Peeth with classes including philosophy, anatomy and meditation alongside yoga asana or yoga postures.

Yoga Teacher Training Goa (India) and Riccione (Italy)
– Ethical Guidelines
Rishikesh Yoga Peeth (Yogamea in Goa or Italy) adopts the ancient approach to yoga to instil 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 school.

The day begins with the daily regimen (Dincharya) and ancient code of conduct. Activities are planned according to the 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 Yogamea expect this behaviour 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 Rishikesh Yog Peeth & Yogamea and so only those students must apply for the course who are willing to commit to the strict regimen of the course.

Code of Conduct
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 waste of food.

Yogamea 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 are required to return all library books and any other articles belonging to the school.

Smoking and alcohol are not permitted during the training.
