About the Course
Yoga is Union. We are, each one of us, already in Union or Yoga with our existing selves right now, our own bodies, our senses, memories and mind. Taking this scattered self of ours to the higher levels of Integrated Awareness is the Whole Science and Art of Yoga. The levels of Willful evolution of our Integrated self ends only at the Absolute Experience.
This is Yoga, This is Higher Experience, the Anubhava of True Yoga.
The 5-Month Anubhava Yoga Teacher Training Course is strucutred specifically to help you achieve this Anubhava of True Yoga. The 4 Crucial components for experiencing the Higher Levels of Self within a TTC are the Teaching Methodology, the Teaching Content and Authenticity, the Environment where the Teaching is happening and last, but not the least, the Teachers and their Quality.
Our mission, at AryaMarga Yoga, given to us by our Yoga Guru is to correct the dilution and confusion of True Yoga that has been an unfortunate consequence of the blatant commercialisation of Yoga.
What you will receive at AryaMarga Yoga is the Essence of the 4 Yogas - The Hatha, The Mantra-Prana, the Laya-Tantra and lastly the Raja or Mahamudra Yoga. Your 5-Month Yogic journey of transmutation begins with the 45 Day Pancha Tattva Yoga / 5-Elements Yoga TTC sub-module, introducing the 4 Yogas and gaining introductory level proficiency in all the 4 Yogas.
The Second sub-module TTC, The Somatic Therapy Training Course will train the students, through Internmediate Level of 5-Elements Mastery, towards preventing, diagnosing and treating more than 20 Major Lifestyle Diseases. An Intermediate Level of Kriya Yoga, Pranayama & Asanas will also achieved by the students with this course.
In the 3rd Sub-module of the TTC, the Yogic Psychology Course, the students will undergo training in the o-Point Systems of the Chakras ad the Petal Architecture Personality Systems. Training will also progress within the Kriya Yoga Systems to an advanced level within this course module. Students will be trained to immediatly perceive and cognise the Whole Personality of others and have awareness of their own Unique Psychological traits of personality. Psychological and Emotional self-healing, diagnostics, therapy and evolutionary methodoligies will be taught and practised in this course module of the TTC.
This in turn allows the student to move from being one who experiences the power of Yoga, to one who heals, and helps develop the bodies and minds of others with Yoga- a true teacher.
The Final and the 4th of the 5-Month TTC is the Tantra Yoga Course. This course is not, strictly speaking a TTC as the students are not undergoing training in this course to be teachers. Rather, they are being trained in the subtle and immesely powerful methods of Yogini/Shakti Tantras and the MahaMudra systems of Yoga. This is a purely experiential course, intense and demanding. The Magical and esoteric worlds of Tantras within are revealed through experience, transfering the Self & life, by the practice of these wondrous systems of Tantra Yoga.
The 5-Month 1100HR Anubhava Yoga TTC comprises 4-Modules, all of which you can take together as the whole Intensive Integrative Training, or which you can take separately depending on your personal interest.
The training during the course is intense, consisting of 6-7 classes every day for 6 days a week and a 90% attendance rate is expected of the students. We keep the batches intimate and personal so we tend to have between 10-12 students per batch who come from all over the World.
The ages usually range from 20´s through 50´s and we require that the students have good health and have the stamina to keep up with the course.
P-TAK 4 YOGAS MODULE: HATHA YOGA TRAINING
The P-TAK module introduces the 4-Yoga System in an intense and integrated manner, with particular focus on integrated yoga practices from Hatha Yoga & Raja Yoga. During the course, students undergo training in the P-TAK (Pancha Tatva Asana Kriya) or The 5- Elements Postures Sequence twice daily. This is a Hatha Asana practice of 75 minutes specifically developed to harmonize and energize our Elemental composition, preparing the body and mind for further advanced Pranayama & Meditation Kriyas (practices).
Students also get to practice they Pranayama and Meditation techniques of the Vijnana Bhairava, from the ancient Shiva branch of Yoga-Tantra. Once a week there is the morning practice & training in the Shatkarmas/Cleansing Practices.
There are 3-4 theory classes per day, consisting of Raja Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Introduction to Samkhya Philosophy and the psychology of 5-Elements.
Our classes are intensive, exhaustive and descriptive, taught by teachers from the Forest tradition of the Giri Monks. Moreover, the course introduces the psychological study of the 5-Elements - their cognitive, affective and behavioral traits. Students are given both theoretical and practical training on the identification of the Unique 5 Elements mix and the Psychology of the Individual.
SOMATIC THERAPY MODULE: DISEASE PREVENTION TRAINING
The Second module is an advanced study of the 5-Elements and its physical manifestation in the body. Each Element is mapped to specific bodily organs based on intuitive understanding of the Element and its correlation with the functioning of the organ. Students learn how the hormonious interaction between the bodily hormones helps maintain homeostasis, and the imbalances that lead to disease.
This module is our Yoga Therapy Module, it covers Etiology, Diagnosis, Prognosis and Therapy for over 20 lifestyle based diseases. Here, Anatomy studies are intensified, the P-Tak sequence is changed from the 27 asana practice to a 2 and half hour practice of 54 advanced asanas, the A-PTAK sequence.
In addition you will also learn about pregnancy and postpartum. These are stages that most women go through in life and as teachers there are several things we need to consider and adapt to make the Yoga practice into a safe and beneficial practice for the mother and her baby. We will - among other things - cover why to avoid certain movements, how to modify the practice, how a healthy practice can prepare for giving birth and how to heal the body after giving birth. We will also cover common ailments connected to pregnancy & postpartum such as diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic joint pain and more.
Pranayama and visualisations are more specific where students start learning curated Asana sequences to prevent the onset of future diseases and to treat existing ones.
The students will study these diseases from an allopathic point as well as the Yogic perspective. This module is not Theory intensive, but more practical in nature.
YOGA PSYCHOLOGY MODULE: MENTAL HYGIENE TRAINING
The Third Module is the Yogic Psychology module which introduces the 0 Point System – the culmination of over a decades long research by AryaMarga Yoga to integrate the diverse systems of yoga psychology into a composite system of Psychological Diagnosis, Prognosis and Therapy.
Starting with customised diagnosis of personality traits as per Yoga Psychology, the 0 Point System provides customised suites of Yogic tools-that comprises of Asanas, Pranayamas and Psychological techniques suited to the individual personality.
The customisation process is decided by the initial survey and observation based diagnosis of the individual, a process called Personality Mapping. This process allows us to understand our own unique personality system. We then target personality traits desired by the individual and finally give form to the suite of tools so that they may act as a ‘Personality Bridge’ between the existing personality with its existing traits and the Desired Personality with its desirable traits. The process of transformation or Personality Expansion is then activated and realised, its speed depending upon the regularity and intensity of practice of the suite of individualised Yogic tools within the 0 Point System. In this module, the students will also be introduced to the in depth study of the Siva Sutras, Mudras, Advanced pranayama, Yoga Nidra practices and Laya Yoga Theory.
TANTRA YOGA MODULE: HIGHER YOGA TRAINING
Finally, the last module consists of the Tantra studies where in the student dives in to the study of Tantra Yoga-Vijnanabhairava, Anuttara Yoga Tantra, Mantra Vidya and the 6 Yogas of Naropa and Vajrayogini Tantra Kriyas. Post the study of the texts and introduction to the practices, the students will go for two weeks to the high himalayan mountains (3500mtrs) of Spiti Valley for the Himalayan editition and to the temple town of Gokarna for the Winter Edition where he/she will engage fully in the Kriyas independently in their own chosen caves/hut near to Tabo Monastery. Transformative and tantric experiences will be discussed with Guruji who will guide the students on the signs seen and way forward.
Roshan Palat, Founder & Philosophy Teacher
Roshan met his Guru near an alpine village a few hours hiking distance from the mountain town of Uttarkashi.
Ganapati Baba’s teaching of the 4 Yogas of the ancient Mahasiddhas Lineage and the profound manner in which it was imparted changed Roshan’s life forever.
Being instructed to learn more about Mahakaruna / The Great Compassion and Shunyata/Emptiness, by his Guru, Roshan undertook a 3-year study into Mahayana Buddhism and the View and Practices derived by that system from the 84 Mahasiddhas.
Since then he has been residing, practising and teaching in the Tibetan town of Bir
Thanida Palat, Co-founder & Hatha Asana Teacher
Thanida, a citizen of Thailand, has been teaching various forms of traditional Hatha Yoga across Thailand and India. She has received advanced Hatha training from Kaivalyadham, Pune, Bihar Yoga Bharati, Munger, Sivananda Ashram, Kerala and JivamuktiYoga, New York.
Having received Yoga training in the Lineage of the 84 Mahasiddhas, Thanida has incorporated her knowledge of the Hatha Asanas with the structure of the 5 element intensification and harmonization practices of the Lineage.
Akshat Madan, Pranayama & Somatic Yoga Teacher
Akshat, set out to travel the mystical land of Yogis and Sages. He was spellbound by the beauty and diversity that India offered, but found it almost impossible to make any coherent sense of his spiritual experience. The thirst for knowledge remained unsatiated. It was during his meeting with Roshanji, that an instant and deep connection was formed to a living lineage of yogic masters. He took the quantum leap and decided to fully immerse and dedicate himself to this new lifestyle
Pragna Yeraballi, Philosophy Teacher
Pragna worked as an IT engineer for almost a decade. Though adept at understanding the ‘how’ of hardware, she felt thoroughly uneducated about how her own mind-body complex works.
Call it serendipity, she stumbled upon AryaMarga Yoga, the inheritor of the unbroken ancient Naga lineage. At once, she fell (more aptly rose) in awe and reverence of the yogic teachings offered here.
Having completed 1100-hr teacher training course with AMY in November 2018, and in 2023, she came full circle and joined AryaMarga family as an assistant teacher.

It is our belief, at Aryamarga Yoga, that to attain a minimum proficiency in the above 4 inter- related areas of Yoga, a minimum period of 5 months of intensive training is necessary. With over 1100 hours of Yogic theory and practicals, the 5 month ANUBHAVA YOGA TTC culminates in a 4 day final examination. Successful participants of the course are awarded four certifications in Yoga:
Yoga Asana, Pranayama, Mudra and Bandha Teachers Certification
Yoga Psychotherapy Teachers Certification
Yoga Physiotherapy and Disease PreventionTeachers Certification
Kundalini Kriya Certification
It must be strongly stated, however, that AryaMarga is not affiliated with Yoga Alliance or any other organisation as we are a stand alone institute. Our aim and objective is to tranmit the authentic yogic teachings of the original Naga Lineage, founders of Hatha Yoga and Laya/Kundalini Yoga.
My time at Arya Marga Yoga Institute has been so surreal. It has been really comforting and exciting to know that we are learning authentic yoga from Teachers of the Naga lineage, which is where Yoga came from in the first place. The 5-Months TTC's focus on Raja Yoga and Kundalini yoga has been important for me. The Aryamarga teachers are helpful, caring and accommodating, so I can assure you that you are in good hands if you join this 5 months program.
I was looking for a yoga training course that does not end in a month but instead continues for a longer duration, giving me a chance to immerse in the teachings completely. I found Aryamarga's 5-Month Yoga TTC to be the best fit. Coming here, it took only a few days before we were completely mesmerised with how the course is arranged...
Beautifully located in the Himalayan foothills – bestowing energy, focus and clarity upon this place – the 5-Month Anubhava Yoga TTC offers a unique opportunity to experience an integrative approach of traditional and authentic teachings of yoga, embedded in the context of modern life.
The caring warmth of the teachers, their dedication and compassion carried me through...
The 5-Month Anubhava Yoga TTC is a full-time residential course. Accommodation would be provided at the spiritually charged AryaMarga Ashram Institute. The pristine Himalayan setting when combined with the powerful Yogic Kriyas allows for the rapid ascension onto the wondrous levels of Yoga.

During the 5-Month TTC, we prefer following the Yogic Diet which, contrary to what many people believe, is not Vegan.

We ensure that the daily nutritional requirements of the students are met through a wholesome dietary plan.
