Samyak Yoga is one of the best-rated Yoga Teacher Training destinations in Mysore, India. Led by Yogacharya Rakesh, Samyak Yoga Ashram is situated on the banks of river Cauveri, the Ganges of South India. The team of Samyak Teachers has a profound background of Yogic monastery education in Veda Vijnana Gurukulam under the guidance of Acharya Dr Ramachandra Bhat in South India. 

Known for the focus on refining the professional teaching skills during the Yoga Teacher Training, Samyak Yoga Programs explore the traditional ways of asana-pranayama-kriya-bandha practices, train students on how to teach with elements such as voice modulation, positioning, the art of hands-on adjustments, variations to be offered, how to design Yoga Class modules, anatomical and psychological aspects of practice and teaching.

    It was an absolute pleasure to live and learn at Samyak for a month. The teachers had a wealth of knowledge and a passion for sharing it. Their enthusiasm was contagious. The asana clinics were wonderful and made up the bulk of the training, but I enjoyed the philosophy classes the most. The ashram itself was beautiful and the food was amazing.

    Outstanding training experience. Extremely high quality teachers and course material taught through a very intensive program. Samyak Yoga does an excellent job of preparing stridents for training and well as fostering the inner journey of each student. The best training program for Ashtanga yoga teacher training!

    I had a great experience at Samyak Yoga and I would definetely recommend for anyone who would like to learn the real Yoga. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and they put a lot of effort into sticking to the teachings from the traditional texts. Thank you for the life-changing experience, Samyak!
