Yoga Teachers Training

The Yogaprasad Yoga Teacher’s Training and Self Development Immersion in 2012 was conducted in the month of March on the banks of River Yamuna on the foot hills of Himalayas.

Eighteen seekers from ten different countries gathered together in one place and jumped collectively into their own transformative journey. This was the special part of the immersion where the participants came with not just a desire to become teachers but also a deep sense of commitment towards personal change.

The seriousness and sincerity of the Yogaprasad Yoga Teachers Training is in its design of being a self transformative journey in itself and what a journey it was! The serenity of the mighty Himalayas and the softness of the holy river Yamuna helped the transformation. Every student whole heartedly participated in the course and came out with flying colours.

Every participant has integrated the teachings into their lives and is either working as a Yoga teacher or inspiring others on the spiritual yogic path in one way or another.

Yogaprasad Teachers Training Course – Testimonials

I never believed that I could do it. It was our Baba, our teacher Prasad who choose me and it was him who saw the potential I held inside me. All I can say about this yoga teacher course is that it has caused a 180 degree turn in me. I could throw away the fear inside me and open up my heart and mind. The biggest thing was the spiritual naming ceremony where I received the name “Sudheer” – the one who is committed and brave – aspects that were missing in my life. That day, near the Yamuna river, I was blessed with these qualities. It was like magic for me. Thank you so much, my love to the participants and our Baba. Love you, Baba.

Nitin Suri – Sudheer

I was very fortunate to be a part of The Yoga Teachers Training and Self Development Immersion course conducted by Shri Prasad Rangnekar at Dehradun, India, in March 2012. Prasad in an outstanding teacher and his knowledge, understanding, patience, love and earnestness is incredible. He successfully integrated Maharshi Patanjali’s Yoga sutras with the Panchkoshas and Chakras, and as a result the daily practice of asanas has taken an altogether different meaning. The journey from the muscle to the mind is simply amazing. The theory and meditation classes, satsangs, study material, spiritual logs, questionnaires and self-learning sheets were successful aids in helping one travel inwards thus resulting in understanding, accepting and empowering the self. This self knowing has boosted my confidence and is helping me handle life fearlessly and in a calm and balanced way. At the end of the course the mission statement of The Yogaprasad Institute, “Move the body, purify the mind, open the heart, find the self” was successfully accomplished. Truly a life changing experience!
