200 & 240-Hours Yoga Teacher Training in Uttar Pradesh, India



With a dedicated focus on authenticity, NIYA provides YTTC certification by Yoga Alliance so that you can learn, teach and spread true yoga around the world.

Why Choose Rural India for your TTC?

Practicing Yoga deep within the therapeutic farmlands of Northern India is the best option for those who want their personal growth to occur alongside Nature. This blossoming setting allows for our students to sync themselves to the rhythms of the natural world for a deeper connect with the inner and most natural self; this then allows for wellness, personal growth, and happiness to re-emerge.

Unlike any other, the Namaste Institute of Yog and Ayurveda offers an environment in which both humans and Nature can thrive off one another – because when one combines yoga with rural life activities, a truly remarkable experience emerges, allowing one to not only take from but give back to the natural world which protects us.

Our 200-hour Yoga TTC, and 240-hour comprehensive Yoga and Ayurveda TTC, have been designed to give students a thorough understanding of proper Yog principles, philosophy, and techniques. In addition to gaining extensive knowledge of Hatha, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa Yoga, these courses are a transformational experience for all who are passionate about learning authentic Ayurvedic and Yogic practices. In addition to providing our students with the knowledge needed to become competent instructors, our courses include a teaching practicum and teaching methodology lessons to aid our students in transforming their self-practice into a display of their mastery.

    Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya (DSVV)

    At Namaste Dwaar, one can learn pure yoga from one of India’s most esteemed institutions for preserving ancient Indian Culture, Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya (DSVV).

    Founded in 2002, DSVV has been the pioneer organization for the spiritual renaissance of divine Indian culture in modern India. This noble objective was founded by Param Pujya Gurudev Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya and Vandaniya Mata Bhagawati Devi Sharma; and DSVV as an institution focuses on preserving the passion held by Gurudev for spiritual living. The institute is headed by Dr. Pranav Pandya who, through his dynamic leadership, has created a system for modern education that has been reformed for the benefit of his students. He has made the art of Living the core essence for all of the institute’s endeavors so that knowledge can truly shape the individual and thus be retained for life.

    DSVV has created a powerful educational system based on scientific spirituality which aims to cultivate a culture of ethical, moral, and spiritual transformation for its students. The programmes for Yog and Ayurveda at Namaste Dwaar are taught by the DSVV faculty to ensure that all of our students acquire genuine knowledge and complete understanding of the true tenets and principles of these ancient bodies of wisdom. Within the atmosphere of positivity created from the natural surroundings, paired with the enthusiasm for our passionate teachers, this is the best place to learn and grow.

    There is need for an educational institution

    which could mold its students into noble

    and enlightened human beings:

    Selfless, Warm hearted, Compassionate, & Kind.”

    - Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya
