Yoga Teacher Training in Goa


The Yoga Institute, chorao Island In Goa, India was founded in 1918 by Shri Yogendraji, and is the oldest centre of yoga in the world. Shri Yogendraji believed that yoga institute was not meant exclusively for bearded men living in the mountains, and he wanted to bring it to householders—the men and women who have to work, toil, commute, earn a living, raise children, and fight the battle of life every day. He wanted to bring it to people living in the town and the city because he believed that the householder could benefit immensely from this knowledge. Little surprise then that Shri Yogendra is known as the Father of Modern Yoga Renaissance.


The Yoga Institute, Chorao Island offers the same authentic yoga experience but at an exotic Island atmosphere where one can rediscover the self.

The Yoga Institute truly believes that Yoga is a way of life. It doesn’t focus only on one limb of Yoga, that is, Asana. It distinguishes itself by propagating Yoga as a way of life and not just a physical culture of improving health. We like to adapt the Yogic philosophies in our practical day-to-day living that contributes to a better and healthier life. 


The Yoga Institute, Charão Island, Goa is based on four major pillars. These help us to develop self-control and leads us towards a healthier, happier, and peaceful life:



  • Aahar (Food): We are what we eat. It is our food that helps us to raise our consciousness levels. At The Yoga Institute, we serve Sattvik meals. We include a lot of homegrown organic items like seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables in our meals. We also include sprouts, whole grain pulses, honey, seeds, fresh herbs, and dairy products.


  • Vihaar (Exercise): Balance is very important in every aspect of life, even in Yoga. We emphasise a lot on the importance of recreation/relaxation time. We propagate to follow a peaceful routine and a positive outlook towards like to live a happy, healthy, and balanced life.


  • Achar (Behaviour): The way we conduct and interact with the external world, define who we really are. The first two limbs of the eight-fold path talk only about our behaviour. We try to revolve our Achar around those two limbs. The Yamas and Niyamas help us to imbibe the Yogic knowledge into our daily living.


  • Vichaar (Thoughts): Our thoughts play a significant role in our lives. Even though outwardly a person may appear to be calm, yet an inner turmoil can affect his external environment. The vibrations of the thoughts can have an immediate effect on the surroundings. At the yoga teacher training course institute, we focus a lot on our thoughts and learn how to alter them.
