– one of the world’s Yoga capitals

PRATHAM YOGA is offering 100, 200 and 300 hours Yoga teacher training programmes which all are intensive 4 and 5 week courses and certified with Yoga Alliance USA. The school is based in the heart of Rishikesh, India - one of the world’s Yoga capitals.

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. 

Pratham YOGA center also organizes amazing YOGA RETREATS right by the banks of sacred river Ganga in the outskirts of Rishikesh. Flexible dates make it easy for you to join us spontaneously along your travel in India, or if you come just for the retreat, you can choose very specific dates which fit your personal schedule. 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 Swami Ekin Ji, which will help you to understand and integrate whatever you learn into your daily life in a modern society. Our Anatomy teacher Christine Bhist is a trained and certified Physiotherapist from Austria, which gives a great medical and scientific addition to our genuine traditional teachings.

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. 

Pratham YOGA India's approach focuses on YTTC in smaller groups for maximum benefits of students and teachers of maximum 10 people which makes it possible to make all participants as a family member. Pratham Yoga educates professional and spiritual teachers with full of love and dedication to create a safe and inspiring space for your transformation. A team of devoted professional teachers is awaiting you.

Reviews from students who joined 200 hrs teacher training


"I was lucky enough to be one of the first students of the Pratham Yoga 200hrs TTC. And 5 stars are not enough to express the way I feel about this training!
Master Vijay Ji is not only an amazing yoga asana teacher, he is also the passionate and carrying founder of the school.
Why you'll love it at Pratham yoga:
° small groups of 8-10 students, which means a lot of personal attention,
° Adjustment, alignment and even teaching yourself from the start (in other trainings this often starts only in week 4)
° Skillful, knowledgeable and authentic teachers,
°Extra workshops (eg. Ayurveda, student/teacher relationships, dynamic meditation) to let you explore more than what is in general included in a standard TTC,
° At the time I did my training accommodation and meals where provided by Pyramid café. And the food was great! They cared so much about making sure we had all the fuel to get us through our intense days,
° Nice outings with the group on the days off (sunrise Kunjapuri temple visit, meditation cave, rafting, ...)

I had the best time at Pratham Yoga and feel prepared starting to teach yoga myself now. In time I hope to also do a 300hrs TTC and go to study with Master Vijay Ji again. 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. Through the training one should develop a sense of harmonious sequencing, confidence, and discipline in order to build a profound base to grow as a Yoga Teacher or for your deepened and advanced self practice.
