How can I prepare for this teacher training?
All topics will be covered from scratch, step by step. The best preparation on your end is to best organise yourself in order to arrive with an open body, mind and heart. A regular, balanced yoga practice leading up to the training will ease and condition you for the program however participants should note that this is an extensive training over an extended period of time. You will be dedicating a lot of time and energy into your body and mind daily so don’t over-do yourself prior to starting this training. A great way to keep a balanced practice is through self practice, where you guide your own pace.
About Yoga Alliance?
Yoga Alliance is an organization that was started in 1999 as a way to create nationally recognized standards for yoga teachers and yoga teacher training in the US. More and more yoga studios across the country are requiring their teachers to register with the Yoga Alliance, either at the 200-Hour or 500-Hour level. Yoga Alliance registration, however, is not a legal requirement for teaching yoga. Currently, there are no legal certification requirements to be a yoga teacher.
Will I be qualified to teach yoga once I complete the 200-hour Teacher Training Program?
Yes! With the successful completion of all the requirements of the program, including contact hours, homework, and final teaching lab, you will receive your certification, proof of your training at the 200-Hour Level. You may also register with the Yoga Alliance (www.yogaalliance.org) at the RYT-200 level (Registered Yoga Teacher 200). Graduates of the 200-Hour program usually begin teaching in small studios, gyms, with private clientele (friends and family), etc.
I have an injury/special condition – can I take this course?
We recommend that you check with your physician first and must sign a waiver stating that you are able to take the class. With your doctor’s permission and release, minor physical limitations can also serve as helpful demonstrations to learn to work with students with similar limitations.

Meghna Saxena –
Nayana has been my yoga teacher for the past 6 months and I have greatly benefitted from her classes.
At the outset, I would like to share that Nayana is an amazingly patient and extremely competent yoga expert. She has not only enabled me to be driven to practising yoga everyday but her vast knowledge of various schools of yoga has made my yoga lessons highly engaging and very interesting. She is an expert in Hatha and Ashtanga and she employed both schools seamlessly in remedying my stiff joints and inflexibility.
I had learnt Ashtanga yoga in Sweden while I lived there and was fixed about only practising the same but working with Nayana has opened my eyes about the great value of each form of yoga.
I would recommend Nayana as a yoga teacher for anyone who is looking for an excellent balance of expertise in the practice of yoga and the calm capability to train any type of student.
deepthi V –
I feel very luck to learn from Vijesh sir.
I have been practising Vijesh’s techniques everyday and I am thankful for having such a wonderful teacher and more importantly a good human being as my teacher.
Varun Vijay Rao –
I started yoga sessions with Nayana a while back and I am very impressed with her detailed knowledge of the different forms of yoga and the treatment of various health concerns through yoga techniques. Over the course of the last few months, I have observed a marked improvement in my health, flexibility and core strength. She is patient and takes the time to understand my needs and designs specific programs to address them. Her pleasant demeanor and calming voice always result in an invigorating and delightful yoga training session and would strongly recommend her as an accomplished, premium yoga teacher and certainly the best that I have come across in all my years of practicing yoga.
thank you Vijesh , This is just what I needed to learn to recharge myself .
Aishwarya Ravindran –
There are far and few who have had an approach to yoga like Nayana. I was not new to yoga when I met her but my knowledge and love for the institution has only grown because of her influence. For me, my journey with her started with the intention to improve my breathing technique and accelerate my weight loss and it continues today as a long-standing relationship with the yogic science and philosophy and the teacher disbursing that
information. I have attended two training workshops.
What stood apart for me:
-Attention to detail and result oriented approach – I have been able to work on my initial goals but have also managed to gain strength and add to my mental well-being as a result of these classes. She also takes care to ensure there is no injury through constant supervision and reiterates the principle of making advancements in yoga in a slow and steady manner.
– Systematic approach to designing classes – she is the only yoga teacher who asked me for a medical history and recorded the same to evaluate in the future. There was continuous monitoring based on which tweaks were made to the classes.
– Focus on theory and supporting knowledge through newsletters and tit bits in classes which is a great blend of theory and practice.
-Great value for your investment of time and money.
-Above all, there is also a general ease in her delivery that makes you comfortable, helps you push yourself further and rest your faith in her which I believe is the foundation to a holistic learning and continuous improvement.
Thank you Nayana – your presence has made all the difference.
