Full Description

This Classical Hatha Yoga Teacher Training at Sri Anantha Niketan Ashram offers a sacred space dedicated to the attainment of real Freedom through spiritual practice and deep understanding of our true Self. This holistic and unique Yoga Teacher Training Program (recognized as RYT-200 by Yoga Alliance International) is based on the authentic scriptural teachings, the Vedic Sciences and Advaita Vedanta (the non-duality tradition of India) as an invitation not just for those interested to become quality yoga teachers, but for everyone yearning to go on a transformative journey by turning your awareness deeply inwards with absolute clarity and presence, reconnecting with your inner Guide/Guru.

Kaivalya Yoga is a Yoga Alliance registered school and Sri Anatha Niketan Ashram is recognized by many as a high-vibrational vortex immensely supportive for deep healing and spiritual evolution. This location, combined with an outstanding & comprehensive academic curriculum and powerful daily practice with extremely switched-on, experienced and caring teachers ensures an experience with life-changing potential on all levels (physical, energetic/emotional, mental, and spiritual), enabling you to create a vibrant, inspired and even blissful life for yourself and your future students by accessing the highest and completest version of yourself.


Instead of an overly gymnastic approach, the classical style of Hatha Yoga focuses extensively on Stillness of Body & Mind in each posture to be recognized as the source and background of our being. This type of practice allows for deep self-inquiry, profound insights and lasting inspiration.

Apart from Hatha Yoga sessions with asana (posture), pranayama (breathwork), bandha (powerful energy locks) and comprehensive lectures & discussions on the various aspects, stages & practices of Yoga (based on Ashtanga/ The Eight Limbs of Yoga) the course also includes devotional, heartful chanting circles (Bhakti Yoga/The Yoga of Devotion), guided meditations (Advaita/Self-Inquiry), practicums (teaching rehearsals), personal guidance and an introduction to Tantra (no nudity, of course).

You will also learn simple, yet effective age-old purification techniques (kriya), the necessary anatomy and physiology background knowledge, including how to properly correct the alignment of each posture as well as their individual health-benefits. All this will be completed with valuable advice on how to kick-start your career as a successful and inspiring Yoga teacher anywhere in the world.

Your investment for this Teacher Training Program is EUR 1670. This includes all tuition by top-quality European teachers & the Course Manual, certification recognized by Yoga Alliance International (subject to our approval), guidance and support during and after the course as well as the priceless benefit of spiritual community and communion. Accommodation and three yogi meals on all course days are by donation directly to the ashram (min. Eur 10/day pp. in a double, EUR 16/day single).


Our two teachers Arpita & Arjuna Hackenberg, founders of Kaivalya Yoga School and Mahadevi Ashram, are an amazingly complementary and synergistic couple who dedicate their lives to the path of Service and Union in the Light of Consciousness.

Arjuna is our main teacher who will guide you through your asana practice, Yogic philosophy and anatomy while Arpita is deeply dedicated to the practice of meditation (Dhyana) & Surrender to the Divine (Ishvarapranidhana) and will offer you a sacred space for reconnecting with your true Self in Stillness, Compassion and Perfection.

Both, Arjuna and Arpita are passionate about Bhakti Yoga (the Yoga of Devotion), Mantra chanting and Tantra and will lead these sessions together.
