Yoga Teacher Training in Dharamsala

About Dharamsala

Dharamsala is located in Northern India, famous for mountain ranges, waterfalls and splendid forests across Himachal Pradesh. Word Dharamsala is a combination of Dharma and shālā, thus an approximate translation into English would be ‘spiritual dwelling’ or, further loosely a ‘sanctuary’. Dharamsala is the center of the Tibetan refugee realm in India.

The mystical influence of Dharmasala will empower one to fully immerse themselves in their yoga training, their learning, their sense of ‘self’. It provides good-quality air which is essential for yoga practices, meditation especially intensive pranayama. It is being settled over 2500m on top of water level, and hence its climate is ideal for getting trained during the summer months. For those of you who are longing for an inspiration and to actually get immensely immersed in learning and wisdom of each pore of your surroundings, our Yoga Center in Dharamsala in North India is ideal for you. Sitting within the shadows of the Dhauladhar ranges of the mountain chain, the attractive mountains frame a most breathless, pristine scenery for a town whose name precisely gets interpreted as ‘spiritual dwelling’. It is named so because it has served as home to the Dalai Lama and lots of other Tibetan seekers seeking peace post-uprising during the mid-20th century. The word Dharamsala refers to a shelter or building for religious pilgrims. historically, such Dharamsala (pilgrims’ rest houses) were usually created close to pilgrims’ destinations (often in remote areas) to provide them an area to stay during nights. Especially in the view of Buddhism, a Dharamsala can be used as a hall for conference or discussions preaching sermons.
