Introduction - What is awaiting you at our Yoga Training Center
Pratham Yoga India is a great choice if you are looking for a genuine course with professional and inspiring teachers who guide you individually and hold a safe space for your practice.

Retreat courses start from 5 to 14 days.
PRATHAM is another name for Lord Ganesha, who is a very well known representation of God in India. The power and energy of Lord Ganesha is the one of new beginnings and a remover of obstacles on our path of life materially, mentally and spiritually. The divine energy of Lord Ganesha is the one which empowers you to get rid of whatever is holding you back on your path and reach to your highest purpose of your being to live your full potential.
Pratham YOGA India is not only guiding you towards the perfect way of practicing Asana, Pranayama and meditation, it also puts high importance on a strong philosophical approach with Yogi Simon Gill Ji, which will help you to understand and integrate the most important concepts of Yoga Philosophy into your daily practice.
Learn the art of sequencing with YOGI VIJAY JI, who is a dedicated and high experienced, enthusiastic master of Asana, Pranayama and Kriya. Through his guidance you may deepen your understanding of body and breath awareness which is essential on the path of Yoga and realization of your true self. YOGI VIJAY JI will teach you a series of safe variations for all levels of practitioners from beginner to advanced in his daily unique alignment and adjustment classes. He will also share his vast knowledge of the proper use of Yoga belt, pillow, blocks, and blankets.
Ayurveda lessons with our Ayurveda Doctor and a free consultation will help to make your stay at Pratham YOGA Center a holistic and memorable transformation. The yogic diet of sattvic food throughout the course supports your system to be gently cleansed and energized throughout the course. Every single meal leaves you energized and amazed by its delicious taste with simple, local and seasonal ingredients.
SMALLER GROUPS for best quality setting:
Pratham YOGA India's high quality approach focuses on YTTC in smaller groups for maximum benefits of students and teachers. Groups have a maximum of 8-12 people, which makes it possible to focus on each participant individually. Due to the smaller group size students have enough time to elaborate the course content with each teachers and ask questions without time pressure. Besides the learning advantage the smaller group size makes also possibe to create beautiful bonds and deep friendships with your fellow students. Many students stay in contact with Pratham Yoga Team long after the course and the team remembers each and every one who has graduated in the past.
SAFETY STANDARTS at Pratham YOGA school:
Pratham Yoga school follows a high standard of safety guidelines for students and teachers. Our selection of highly professional teachers guarantees injury free instructions if followed appropriately by the students. Further Pratham Yoga does it's best to create a safe space for female students in terms of physical boundary protection. All instructors follow a high moral code and any physical adjustment will happen in a professional way only with the purpose of adjusting one's posture or teaching adjustment techniques according to syllabus. Any other touch, verbal commentary or gesture which crosses the boundary of safe space is inappropriate and prohibited from both sides - the teacher and the student. Any observation of sexual behavior will therefore lead to immediate exclusion of the person, even if acted consensual.

What our students say
I’m so grateful I decided to join Pratham Yoga for the 200h YTT in March 2022. It’s been an amazing transformative journey and I recommend this experience to anyone who wishes to deepen his/her yoga knowledge, especially if the intention is that of becoming a teacher, but also if you just wish to look deeper into yourself and enhance your self-awareness and self-care. The teachers are all extremely prepared, knowledgeable, dedicated and available; they are also very attentive to everyone’s specific needs and they take care of every student according to their level. Also, the facilities are really nice and I appreciated being away from the distractions of the city to focus inward.
Last but not least, the food is delicious!
Thanks Pratham Yoga Team, you are wonderful 🙂

I don‘t know where to begin… joining the Yoga Teacher Training at Pratham Yoga was about more than just becoming Yoga Teachers! When I joined the course we were only 4 students and it was truly amazing to connect with everyone on such a different level. The food was definitely authentic Indian cuisine and in the end we all had different meals that we used to call our favorites. The teachers were very qualified and inspiring. We also enjoyed the trips around Rishikesh and to the mountains a lot. No matter where we went, we always had a blast!
Thank you for such an amazing journey! I already miss you, Alicia 🙂
If you are planing on doing a YTT, I highly recommend joining Pratham Yoga for this extraordinary experience. Truly life changing. Whether you are planning to teach or not, the amount of knowledge you'll acquire in just a month is truly astonishing. The whole team is very kind, experienced and you can tell they teach with a burning passion, which is a huge plus. Since groups are rather small, the teachers can really focus on each student individually, which is great also.
I really enjoyed my time there, and I'm sure you will too!
Vijay Ji was my ashtanga yoga teacher in rishikesh during one whole month. What I can say is that his love to the practice, the way he teaches, and everything is five stars.
I finished my YTT with him in 2014. Since then I haven't stop practicing, learning, improving and still studying and teaching ashtanga, triying to keep the essence that he trespassed me!
I just finished my 200 hours YTTC and the experience was amazing. The teachers shared their great knowledge with us in a very understandable way. The course went so much deeper than I expected and I learned a lot about myself. Great teachers, delicious food and the most beautiful peaceful location. A school with a big heart. Thank you and Namaste!

Philosophy at our Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Rishikesh
Om Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu ॐ
May all beings in all of the worlds be happy and free
Through Pratham Yoga our aim is to share and spread Yoga understanding with best of our intention in order to connect people on a heart level, improve self-love and stepping closer towards knowing who you truly are.
Through Yoga all beings may develop compassion and finally realise oneness and union within everything. Further the health benefits of Yoga are inevitable and will little by little change one´s life into a more fulfilling, meaningful and grateful experience.
In matter of Asanas our aim is to guide you through a stable health conscious practise which protects your body, yet helps you to build strength, stability, flexibility, concentration, awareness.
