Yoga Teacher Training with Swamiji
Pushkar meditation Temple now offers a down-to-earth Yoga Teachers Training Course that ensures that on completion you become a competent and confident teacher equipped with a certificate and registration of Yoga Alliance, USA.
The carefully crafted 200 Hour, 3-Week Intensive Course is possibly the most comprehensive and in-depth found anywhere in India. That is because of the person behind this endeavor – Swamiji Kapri. For Swamiji teaching yoga is not a business but passion that he has pursued for nearly 4 decades.
There were persistent requests from those who have trained with Swamiji to start something like this in Pushkar so that they don’t have to go to Rishikesh. But Swamiji resisted it saying ‘it is not easy to mine and refine yoga teaching with so many people bent upon distorting and destroying it for quick money.’
But then realizing what was happening in Rishikesh and the need for a Yoga Alliance registered school in holy Pushkar that could redefine and reset the standards of yoga teaching taking it to new height Swamiji finally gave in and there is every reason to believe that soon Pushkar would be known for finest yoga teachers training course in India.
The course following the Guru-Shishya Parampara (master-disciple tradition) is tailored to turn serious yoga practitioners into successful yoga teachers with more focus on teaching than learning. From day one the trainees start sharing and teaching in each session. In fact, all the sessions on Fridays are handled by trainees in rotation. As the batch is small (certainly not more than 10 trainees) each one gets individual attention and lots of practice in developing project, writing papers, presenting and conducting yoga session.

In the late 90s, while living and working in New York Swamiji started a yoga studio, first yoga studio in Queens and introduced scores of New Yorkers to the benefits of yoga demonstrating its immediate effect on our body and mind. In the process, people could coup better with stress and became more calm and relaxed. Others could lose weight, control diabetes, get rid of back/shoulder pain, get relief from chronic sinus. Couples also came with problems of infertility or impotency and were greatly satisfied with the results.
Swamiji has developed what he calls the “Yoga Manual” with focus on Ashtanga Yoga that forms the basis for his teaching. The following blog posts would give an idea of the understanding of the ancient science of yoga: http://swamijikapri.blogspot.in/
