Ashram-life 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in Tiruvannamalai, South India - availability for January & February 2025

Updated: Feb 28

We have just returned from Tiruvannamalai, South India! This is where we host Madan Yoga 200hr Yoga Teacher Trainings during the winter season. Tiruvannamalai is one of the holiest cities in Tamil Nadu state of South India, and is an important pilgrimage site.

Since ancient times, Tiruvannamalai has been a magnet for yogis and sages for their spiritual practice and growth. In the heart of this sacred temple town lies Arunachala mountain - it is said the manifestation of Lord Shiva. It is especially known for the Indian sage Ramana Maharshi, who meditated in Arunachala's caves for long periods of time. And even in today's time, Arunachala, its powerful energy and divine presence continues to attract yogis and spiritual seekers from all over the world.  Around the base of the Arunachala mountain and throughout whole Tiruvannamalai, you can visit various temples, ashrams, and sacred sites along the way.

In this beautiful and sacred environment we are conducting 200hr Yoga Teacher Trainings every winter in January & February! This January, a group of 10 wonderful students from all over the world joined us, living together as a family in the ashram Sri Anantha Niketan. Set in the countryside with stunning views of Arunachala mountain and lots of greenery, the ashram offered the perfect venue for the group to dive deeper into a variety of yogic practices throughout the course. The 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with Madan Yoga provides an insight on asana, pranayama, meditation, karma yoga, mantra, anatomy, philosophy, teaching methodology and alignment & adjustment - 21 days of learning all about the multifacedness and diversity of yoga and yogic teachings!

The 200hr Yoga Teacher Training was concluded with each student designing and teaching their own yoga class and a certification ceremony, where everyone received their internationally valid certificate approved by Yoga Alliance and authentic South Indian flower garlands!
