Why take our training?


The aim of this training is to dive deep into the yoga teaching and practice: by understanding the cosmic geometry of your body, the Yantra (machine) which carries you in this world, you will restore your connection to the intelligence that goes beyond the intellect; We call this Mukti or self-realization. This training is rooted in the philosophy of bhakti-yoga and the ancient practice and legacy of Adi-Yogi: Shiva the original Yogi. (The OG) 

Open to all Yogis and teachers of any type of Asana, this training is designed to make you a very proficient and exemplary yoga teacher through the careful study of philosophy, anatomy and verbal instruction.


Beyond yoga, students will be introduced to its sister science, Ayurveda. Ayur stands for life, and Veda for knowledge, therefore Ayurveda represents the ‘science of life’, an ancient medicinal and lifestyle tradition that perfectly complements yoga. The two together form a perfect toolset for a healthy, wholesome lifestyle! Keep the body healthy with yoga asana and Ayurvedic healing and nutrition principles, maintain mental and emotional peace, and find balance with mindfulness lifestyle practices.

Hari OM Yoga teacher training aims to deliver the highest quality yoga asana, philosophy, anatomy, and Ayurveda

teachings, combining experts in the respective fields and offering all the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary for the students to complete their journey.
