What you'll Learn

You will learn to teach yoga. But more than that, you’ll learn to teach confidently and with authenticity. 

Nestled in the awe inspiring Blue Ridge Mountains, with the uplifting energy of the Art of Living Retreat Center to support you, the first steps on your yoga teaching journey will be remarkable.

Teach Yoga with Confidence

Teaching yoga is always nerve-wracking to begin with. But this training program will give you the solid grounding you need to teach with confidence and trust in your own capabilities. You will know how to plan and lead classes, workshops and one-to-one sessions, and you’ll begin to develop your unique teaching style from the very start.

Craft and Adapt Classes for Different Needs

The Sri Sri School of Yoga takes a multidimensional approach to training teachers. This means that you will learn how to craft classes for a range of different students. You will be able to work with common injuries, and modify postures and classes to accommodate them; teach groups with specific physical or emotional needs; and teach adults of all ages.

Understand Anatomy

Under the guidance of physician Dr. Bharti Verma, you will gather a comprehensive understanding of functional anatomy and physiology. With classes focused on and highly applicable to the physical practice of yoga, the science behind body patterns and movement will be integrated into your teaching.

Discover the Four Paths of Yoga

Learn about – and experience – the four paths of yoga: Gyana (wisdom); Karma (service and action); Bhakti (love and devotion); and Hatha (effort). As your yoga practice deepens, it will be informed by the four paths. Your practice will become the guide that helps you navigate your own journey.

Integrate Yoga Wisdom into Life and Teaching

Yoga is all about practice. But cultivating an awareness and understanding of the traditions and philosophies that form the basis of yoga as we know it will add greater depth and insight. This program will enable you to integrate the wisdom of yoga into your life and teaching in actionable, practical ways.

Understand Ayurveda

Discover the fundamental principles of the oldest recorded medical system in the world. Learn how to weave Ayurvedic knowledge into your lifestyle and diet, creating balance and harmony. You can share Ayurvedic practices with your future students to enhance their learning, too.

Build Your Business

Although this program is rooted in tradition, it is firmly situated in the present day. The faculty are all practicing yoga teachers themselves – they know how important it is to build a sustainable business around your teaching. You will be supported in identifying goals for your yoga business and creating a strategy to work towards them.

Look Forward to Your Next Steps

This 200 hour program will give you the qualifications; the skills; and most importantly, the inspiration to embark on the next phase of your yoga exploration. Whether you decide to pursue specialized advanced training, to take your yoga on the road and teach internationally, or to jump in and start building a client base in your hometown, you’ll have the foundations you need.

Feel Supported Within Your New Community

When you complete this Sri Sri Yoga Teacher Training you will join a global network of fellow graduates. They will become your sangha; your community. And they will be there to support and inspire you in the the years to come.

That Community Has a History

The Sri Sri School of Yoga was founded by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. The school seeks to expand the world’s understanding of yoga through education and training that is steeped in the vedas – the original roots of yoga. 

Respectful of its long lineage of masters, the school also aims to make yoga accessible and applicable for the modern day; promoting the notion that yoga is for all people, regardless of age, ability, culture or religion. Program graduates undergo a rigorous training and are equipped with a deep and personal understanding and experience of yoga. This allows them to bring the different dimensions of practice and philosophy to their own students. 

The simplicity of Sri Sri’s approach to yoga combines the fundamental principles of self practice (sadhana), service (seva) and expansion of the self (satsang). This empowers individuals to thrive, and encourages society to blossom in human values.

Dinesh Kashikar

Yogacharya Dinesh Kashikar, affectionately known as Kashiji, is the Director of Teacher Training for the global Sri Sri School of Yoga in India and part of the curriculum design team, bringing more than 15 years of training aspiring yoga teachers in the various dimensions of the study and practice of yoga. 

Kashi began studying yoga at the age seven when he completed Upanayanam, the ancient thread ceremony, thereby beginning his formal education in the Vedic tradition from which Yoga comes. Walking on the path of yoga naturally brought about an interest in the source of yoga, and with a background in Sanskrit, Kashi has immersed himself in the study of what he calls a wonderful treasure trove of knowledge, including the research in both the spirit and science of yoga. His life long journey in the study of yoga especially blossomed when in 1995 he became a full time volunteer with the Art of Living Foundation, a global non-profit educational organization founded by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. 

From student to teacher, Kashi now delivers a diverse set of yoga based programs for the Art of Living globally taking him to many parts of the world. Kashi conducts the Sahaj Samadhi, a mantra based meditation workshop, the Happiness Program, a Sudarshan Kriya breathing based self-development program, to more than 100,000 participants internationally, the Sri Sri Yoga Deep Dive Retreats and the Vedic Wisdom Course, a month long immersive curriculum in the ancient sciences of yoga, among others. 

Under the guidance of Sri Sri, Kashi has taken on incredible responsibility and leadership in growing Sri Sri Yoga in India and globally. He has empowered yoga teachers in the authentic traditions of yoga, making it accessible and practical, so that individuals can both personally thrive and confidently teach. His style of teaching is infused with humor and lightness and reflects his versatility in the knowledge of yoga, expertise in training and ability to connect with a variety of audiences and cultures. 

For Kashi, yoga is a way of life, a philosophy that spans the gamut of the mundane to the sublime; it can shape one’s life both on and off the mat. He guides his students through this journey covering the building blocks of yoga teacher training – asanas, instructions, anatomy, physiology for example -coupled with the contextual knowledge of yoga, so that teachers can infuse an appreciation of the philosophy and tradition in their teaching. He skillfully prepares yoga teachers to understand, utilize and teach the tools of yoga, balanced with the freedom of practice, to naturally experience the pure state of yoga within. 

His travels have taken him throughout Asia, the United States, and Europe where he has conducted a series of yoga tours and immersive yoga based workshops. Over the years, he has also had the honor of traveling with HH Sri Sri Ravi Shankar across India conducting yoga sessions for gatherings in the thousands.  

Kashi is a graduate of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology. He is a E-RYT 500H with Yoga Alliance and is a member of the Steering Committee for Yoga for the Quality Council of India, a government body that upholds the current certification process for yoga professionals. Kashi also is a member of the academic council of Sri Sri University where he is instrumental in designing and upgrading the curriculum of graduate and under graduate programs in yoga.
