5-Month Anubhava Yoga TTC


Yoga, an ancient and highly developed science of the body and mind is understood by most of it’s dedicated  practitioners , as a sophisticated system that permits phenomenal psychological and physiological evolution and healing.

It would be irrational to suppose that a system of this depth and power can be mastered in one month. The dilution of the venerable science of Yoga into an easy vocation through the one month TTC (Teachers Training Courses)  has been one of the enduring tragedies of the world of Yoga study, practice and transmission.

5-month/1100-hour Teacher Training in Yoga :

AryaMarga Yoga has taken accountability for what we believe to be a restructuring of the existing Teacher Training Courses and through our highly intense curriculum deliver an unadulterated Yogic experience. Our aim is to recreate the style and content of teaching as was received personally by us from our Gurus of the ancient Lineage of Anuttara Yoga, a combination of the Hatha-Laya and Kundalini Yogas. Our courses are not particularly designed to be a career change, they are not vocational.

The 5 month ANUBHAVA YOGA TTC, or Experiential Yoga practice leads to a profound experience of authentic Yoga, it’s methods and views.  The actual experience within of the learned theory and techniques, using the experiential tools of ANUBHAVA YOGA TTC helps to develop an intuitive understanding of the therapeutic values of the asanas and psychological techniques learnt for the mind and body.

This in turn allows the student to move from being one who experiences the power of Yoga, to one who heals, and helps develop the bodies and minds of others with Yoga- a true teacher.

Anubhava Yoga TTC : 20th March – 25th August 2019

For an individual to be called a Yoga teacher he/ she must show proficiency in four related areas of Yoga:


Yoga asana practice, Pranayama or Life force expansion techniques, Mudra or Life-force expressions,  Bandhas or Life-force locks and the Shatkarma or the 6 Cleansing practices.

PTAK sequence felt like the right balance of asanas with psychological and physiological changes showing up within few weeks of practice. – Pragna Yeraballi, Anubhava Yoga TTC, Class of 2018


Understanding the theory of Samkhya Yoga based personality diagnosis. Application of Yogic techniques in two separate areas- firstly, self- willed evolution for one’s own personality complex, and secondly, yogic psychological counseling for others based on Yogic diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic techniques.

My favorite parts are Yoga Psychology (including personality types, Dream Yoga and many meditations) and the meditation retreat in Spiti where we put our new knowledge into more intensive practice.  You will go through so many changes as is the case of true healing and spiritual evolution, and you will learn how to help others achieve changes as well, so it is definitely worth it. – Nada Hamdan, Anubhava Yoga TTC, Class of 2017


In-depth understanding of human anatomy-physiology and the effects of Yoga asanas, pranayamas and psychological techniques, on the multiple body systems involved in homoeostasis. Yogic theory of disease origins, prevention and cure. Application of the Hatha Kriyas and Yoga Psychotherapy in curing diseases and physiotherapy, across a range of 60 diseases.

We are offered profound teachings, building a wholesome system of practicing Yoga, which are made so vivid to take in by the passion they are presented to us. – Chiara Praller, Anubhava Yoga TTC, Class of 2018


Theory of Tantra and Emptiness;  Practice of Tattva Shuddhi or 5 Elemental Purification; Theory and techniques of Kundalini based Shat Chakra Bhedhana or Penetration of the 6 Circles.

It is our belief, at Aryamarga Yoga, that to attain a minimum proficiency in the above 4 inter- related areas of Yoga, a minimum period of 5 months of intensive training is necessary.  With over 1100 hours of Yogic theory and practicals, the 5 month ANUBHAVA YOGA TTC culminates in a 4 day final examination. Successful participants of the course are awarded four certifications in Yoga:

  1. Yoga Asana, Pranayama, Mudra and Bandha Teachers Certification
  2. Yoga Psychotherapy Teachers Certification
  3. Yoga Physiotherapy and Disease PreventionTeachers Certification
  4. Kundalini Yoga Teachers Certification

We pride ourselves in conserving the legacy of the authentic yogic practices of the Ancient Masters, and through rigorous discipline achieve the most intense experience we believe a TTC course currently offers today.

Students who’ve undergone a 200hr/500hr training will be preferred as the teachings of this course are intensive and prior foundational practice of Yoga is required to fully integrate such teachings. Students are expected to come prepared for a challenging and intensive 5-month experience, which would push the boundaries of their body and mind.

Nada Hamdan (Anubhava Yoga TTC, Class of 2017)

“My time at Arya Marga Yoga Institute has been so surreal.  It has been really comforting and exciting to know that we are learning true yoga from the source – the Naga lineage, which is where yoga came from in the first place.  The Institute’s focus on Raja Yoga and Kundalini yoga has been important for me since I am more spiritually inclined.

It has been so interesting to learn about the system of the 5 Elements and I have learnt so much about myself and others that way. You will not find this kind of approach in any other TTC and it is very important as each person has a different combination of elements and so we can offer them a tailored package of asanas, pranayama, mudras, and meditations accordingly.

My favorite parts are Yoga Psychology (including personality types, Dream Yoga and many meditations) and the meditation retreat in Spiti where we put our new knowledge into more intensive practice.  You will go through so many changes as is the case of true healing and spiritual evolution, and you will learn how to help others achieve changes as well, so it is definitely worth it.

The Aryamarga team members are so helpful, caring and accommodating, so I can assure you that you are in good hands if you join this 5 months program.”

I was looking for a yoga course that does not end in a month but instead continue for a longer duration giving me a chance to immerse in it completely. I found Aryamarga 5 month TTC course to be the best fit. Coming here, It took only a few days before we were completely mesmerised with how the course is arranged. PTAK sequence felt like the right balance of asanas with psychological and physiological changes showing up within few weeks of practice. Raja yoga classes gave a whole new level of understanding yoga in its complete essence and laid way for future growth. Overall the course has been a holistic approach of understanding the yogic sciences in theory and practice.

Mohit Gautam (Anubhava Yoga TTC, Class of 2018)

Mohit GautamI amusingly call myself a perpetual escapist. Driven by my whims, I left my 13th job (in 8 years), looking for yet another escape. That’s when I discovered the 5-months TTC course offered by Aryamarga. Coming here, I knew exactly what I’d been escaping from, all my life and how to finally confront it.

Call it serendipity, I found myself being a part of this close-knit circle of brilliant Yoga teachers and like-minded aspirants from around the globe. Because of the limited number of students, everyone gets enough room for self improvisation, getting a grip on the fine nuances of yogic practices, be it asanas, pranayama or kriyas.

What really got me hooked though were Roshan Ji’s philosophical elaboration on original Yogic texts – Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, Vijnanabhairava Tantra and Mandukya Upanishad – it’s rich, unconventional and unexpectedly humorous! His teachings inculcate you with wisdom and reverence without compromising on playfulness.

Full of adventure and surprises, the fortnightly trips to the uncharted territories of Himalayas are something to look forward to.

Half-way through the course, I am realizing this is not a yoga TTC course per se. It’s more like an off-the-mat guidance to knowing yourself, and others, more intimately, making more meaningful connections, and hence be able to navigate through life most skillfully — turning your very whims into your greatest strengths. Coming from the very fountainhead of the original Natha lineage, the teachings help you explore the deserted nooks and corners of your own psyche — the way psychedelics never can.

Manuel Hoegl (Anubhava Yoga TTC, Class of 2018)

Manuel HoglBeautifully located in the Himalayan foothills – bestowing energy, focus and clarity upon this place – the AryaMarga TTC offers a unique opportunity to experience an integrative approach of traditional and authentic teachings of yoga, embedded in the context of modern life.

The caring warmth of the teachers, their dedication and compassion carried me through an as intense as insightful experience, gaining deeper knowledge and understanding of yoga – in personal practice and in theory – and the processes of life itself, while establishing a more balanced and harmonious state of being.

A definite recommendation for all practitioners and teachers, who want to dive deeper,  strive for insight and are willing to spark their inner fire.
