Inexpensive but Efficient Yoga Instructor Training in Rishikesh, India

To begin with, “Inexpensive” and efficient sounds contradictory especially when we talk about education. And yoga training being an expensive one, cheapness is the last word we associate with it. By “Inexpensive,” therefore, We simply mean the cost not the quality. Again, cheapness depends on one’s budget. You’ll know if you read on.

The cheapest one is what is called “home courses.” In which case, the institution you enrolled to provides you with the materials. You are required to study the reading materials and clear the examination in order to get the certificate. Those who are looking only for certificate, “home courses” perfectly serve the purpose. Sometimes, however, we look beyond the certificate and towards the experience of learning or training.

Raj Yoga - Rishikesh might just as well be your solution. Located in the yoga capital of the world Rishikesh and affiliated to Yoga Alliance, it is a credible institute offering short term yoga courses for beginners and intensive yoga programs for advanced learners. The course RYT 200, a shortened form of 200 hours Registered Yoga Teacher training, is designed to serve the twin purposes. As it often is, every good thing comes for a price, and it comes at a fee of US$ 1400 However, the fee covers the basic cost of single room accommodation and food.

Less the low fee structure becomes a suspect of the quality of training, Raj Yoga - Rishikesh is run by a non-profit making society. Its faculty comprises of four qualified trainers and since it is affiliated with Yoga Alliance, its certificate (RYT200) is internationally recognized.

Besides this, there are many institutions which offer regular Yoga Certification courses at affordable prices. Find out as much information of the institution such as the course and the fee structure, syllabus and location. However, before narrowing down to one institute, make sure that it is recognized for its certificate would stand invalid.
