It is said that potential of human mind is limitless. But there are very few who explore this and live life to its fullest potential. Yoga enables you to go to the multiple layers of the body and mind and learn your true self. It helps to establish deeper body and mind connection. During the process you get to know yourself and your unique abilities better.

The 500-hour YTT is our most comprehensive course that helps you to be more aware of your thoughts, action and connection between them. By doing this course, you will have better control over your emotions and impulses which will thus allow you to take better decisions. So, if you have a keen interest to dive deeper into yoga philosophy, make a career in the ancient practice or discover yourself, the 500-hour YTT is the most suitable course for you. Designed, developed and taught by experienced teachers and trainers, the course would be no less than life-changing.

The 500 YTT is recognised by Yoga Alliance, USA and hence its course content and teaching methodology meets international standards.

Besides the traditional Ashtanga, Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, Pranayamas, various meditation techniques, the 500-hour YTT also includes Aerial, prenatal and postnatal yoga techniques.

Especially designed for pregnant and new mothers, the yoga for new mothers seeks to help them to cope with the issues involving pregnancy. As women need to stay calm during pregnancy for good mental health of the child in the womb, our expert teachers guide them during this transformative phase.

The 500-hour YTT offered by Swaastik Yog Ashram has therefore been very popular among a wide array of people – students, seekers and new mothers.

During the course, healthy and Satvik food prepared in the Ashram kitchen following the principles of Ayurveda is provided. The accommodation is clean and comfortable to make students feel at home. Weekly excursion to nearby tourist sites is also part of the course to allow students to build strong bonds among themselves and make the yoga journey more memorable.

The certificate awarded after the 500 YTT enables students to teach yoga in any part of the world. It helps them to embrace yoga as their way of life.
