  • I see some eligibility criteria such as one minute stay in some asanas. Why it is important? I can't do some of them for one minute. Can I apply?
    You are expected to have some proficiency to some level. In order to give you a sense of what could be the expected level, we have this criteria. If you are unable to stay for a min in one or two asanas due to some physical limitations, that is okay. However, you will need a sufficient level before starting the advanced yoga teacher training.
  • I am already an advanced Yoga practitioner. Can I take 300-hour Training without taking 200 Hour training?
    No. You will have to take a 200 hour training from any good Yoga school (including Samyak Yoga). It is not advisable to decide for yourself that you are an advanced yoga practitioner. 200-Hour training covers (at least some good schools) the fundamentals and we take it forward in 300-Hour Training.

Our courses are intensive and it is recommended to take 200 Hour training first and then taking 300 Hour training. Personally, I recommend taking first 200 Hour and then 300-Hour training. It helps you really deepening your practice & teaching.

There are lesser Yoga studios and shalas compared to the west. Therefore, we are keeping the prices as low as possible to people who earn here in India so that they can also get into the mainstream of Yoga practices.
