New York, the fourth most populous state in the United Stated of America can be termed as the capital of Yoga education in the country.

The beauty of New York’s Yoga society is that you are sure to cross path with a number of Yoga teachers, who trace their roots to the Indian Subcontinent.

The Northeastern state of America’s fame as a Yoga destination is strengthened by the presence of numerous natural beauties such as Whiteface Mountain, Seneca Lake, and the infamous Niagara Falls. Yoga schools such as The Yoga School New York (TYSNY), Mount Madonna Institute of Yoga, Lighthouse Yoga School, etc. are the flag bearers of yogic training in the Western Hemisphere.

Teacher Training in Kerala



How could you complete a yogic discussion without mentioning the name of Kerala? Kerala holds a prominent position in the field of Yoga, owing to the cultural value of the Indian state based on the principles of Yoga. Since Kerala is the birth land of Ayurveda, almost all the Yoga institutes include Ayurvedic studies in their training programs. In Kerala, one witnesses an entirely different culture of South India along with the stunning experiences of delving in Trikonasana on the virgin beaches of Laccadive Sea. Master the ancient science and relish the best Luxury Yoga retreats in India when you book a Yoga program in the southernmost tip of the Indian peninsula.




India’s northern neighbor, Nepal is one of the most sought-after places when it comes to Yoga and spiritual education. Set on the Himalayas, the tiny nation is one of the few places in the world where one can learn the yogic science of spiritual enlightenment near the place of Yoga’s birth, on the Himalayan peaks. The birthplace of Gautam Buddha is adorned with the snow-packed mountain valleys, astonishing lakes, and a pleasant weather making it an ideal Yoga destination.

Whether you are practicing Yoga for some time or a newbie to the ancient science, there is a Yoga teacher training in Nepal for everybody based on the aspirant’s depth in Yoga’s understanding.
