Our training is robust, intensive and structured towards teaching outcomes and development of personal practice. Our established method of training has been developed over the past ten years to ensure trainees graduate as well rounded, competent and professional teachers.

Our Standards
Himalaya Yoga Valley is a Registered Yoga School (RYS 200 & 500) with Yoga Alliance USA and we are also a Registered Yoga School (RYS 200 & 500) with Yoga Alliance Professionals UK. We are also RYS members of The World Yoga Council, International Yoga Federation and the Yoga Confederation of India – Asian Union of Yoga. Lalit is the International Yoga Federation Hon. Secretary for Dharamshala. The teaching at Himalaya Yoga Valley reflects the high standards of these organisations and we are honoured to carry forward the traditional yoga teachings of India. We are members of the Yoga Alliance USA Standards Committee and we constantly strive to raise the bar in the field of yoga education.

Our reputation as a leader in Yoga education has developed by consistently maintaining and exceeding these standards set out by these bodies and by our in depth evaluation procedures. We build our professional growth around our values . Our team has worked diligently over the last decade to develop our programs to the highest possible standards, and this is reflected by the international success of our graduates who represent us so well around the globe.

Himalaya Yoga Valley was one of the first training schools established in Goa to meet the needs of yoga teaching aspirants and our reputation within the yoga community is supported by our sustainable professional practices and tried and tested teaching methodology.

Our Core Value at Himalaya Yoga Valley is “Honor the Source” and it is through this value that we share our teachings and navigate our professional, personal and philosophical paths. At the heart of Yogacharya Lalit’s teachings and our school’s mission is the belief that yoga is a holistic science and discipline that should be approached through the Eight Limbs of Yoga to foster balance and increase well-being.

We believe that yoga should inspire, improve, challenge and nurture the individual to develop a healthy and well rounded spiritual and physical practice. Our philosophy and method has been embraced by students from all backgrounds aged 18-80 and it is through our respect of the individual that this is possible. We take great pride in our trainee graduates who have spread this philosophy around the world.

We believe that yoga should increase not only the wellness of the individual but also the community in which it is delivered. We have been supporters of International Animal Rescue in Goa and Cork Simon Community (Ireland) for a number of years and we are honored to be able to support these organizations through Seva and fundraising.

We aim to increase health, happiness and wellness through the practice of yoga and we thank India for the gift of yoga by honoring the source and maintaining the traditions so generously shared with us.
