Every year Tribe offers a Yoga Teacher Training Course in Rishikesh attracting international students who would like to study yoga whilst enjoying the spiritual ambience of one of India’s most holy towns.
Rishikesh has a very special energy. In the market place & temples there is always a beautiful peace and serenity that has a positive and balancing effect on the soul.
A special attraction and powerful presence in this area is the holy river Ganges, revered as having healing qualities. Taking a plunge in the fresh Himalayan waters definitely feels very rejuvenating, cleansing and nourishing for the soul. The banks of the Ganges are lined with ashrams and Temples receiving a constant flow of pilgrims and spiritual seekers.
This mecca for yoga aspirants and spiritual seekers makes it easy for students and teachers to be focused and grounded. There are many wonderful classes, spiritual leaders, teachers & courses dedicated to self-development for you to participate in before and after your training.
Tribe has a deep appreciation of Rishikesh as an ideal location for our teacher trainings. It is a vegetarian and alcohol free town, which supports a peaceful and innocent atmosphere. We encourage students who would like to explore the benefits of living and breathing in a spiritual community to join us in Rishikesh.

Tribe possesses a professional teaching faculty, who are motivated, encouraging, well experienced, in addition to being masterfully talented in their teaching capabilities.
Not only has completing the training deepened my dedication and motivation towards my own personal practice, but it has also led to enlightening self-discovery and beautiful awakening.
