Uttar Pradesh





Welcome to North India

Our Yoga Teacher Trainings in India will be hosted at Akshara Yoga School. The location of Akshara Yoga is the village Neoria in the province of Uttar Pradesh. It is an organic farm lying at the foot hills of the Himalayas. Away from the touristic “yoga bazaar” that usually happens in Risikesh where you can find a yoga school in every corner.

In Akshara Yoga School we’ll have the opportunity to live the traditional ashramic way. This is a unique experience, helping you to dive deeper into your training. You are solely focused on learning, it is therefore simple and minimalist, without unnecessary luxuries.

From ancient monks and sages who developed the primal yoga practices till today Yoga philosophy is deeply rooted in the culture of India. Our Lead Trainer, Christos, has close ties with India since 2004. He lived there for about a year and later he has traveled back several times to continue his journey.

Read what they say about us
I searched a lot to find the right place to do my yoga training and Christos from the first moment made me feel safe as I had little experience. It was the best choice I could have made… It opened up roads that I didn’t know existed… The whole team is amazing, very well organized and the retreat in all is a unique experience!

I attended the 200-hour training program in 2018 after an extensive search to find the right place and people to help me discover the world of yoga beyond mat practice. Christos was that person who, from the very first conversation, made me feel warm and confident about what would follow.

I completed my training in Ayama 2 years ago. I would go back in time and relive it if I could. Knowledge with substance, love and care. Proper guidance for development and support. For me, now, Ayama is a nest that I can return to whenever I need to.

A yoga training program that gave me the strength, in addition to being a lifelong student of yoga, to also share the path I walk and continue to learn. I am thrilled with the experience and highly recommend it. I thank all the teachers of Ayama Yoga House for the endless knowledge they generously share.

I feel deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to complete Ayama’s teacher training program. The essential knowledge, the effective method, the holistic approach and of course the wonderful teachers helped me delve into the philosophy & practice of authentic yoga

Each teacher with their own gifts, always willing to help us. They supported me to overcome my physical and mental obstacles. Thank you for everything!

  • Which airport should I choose?

    The closest international airport is the Indira Gandhi International airport of India in New-Delhi, which is approximately 300km from Neoria near Pilibhit Tiger Reserve, where the school is located. We recommend arriving a day earlier if possible, to factor in any flight delays and give yourself time to adjust to the new time zone and climate.
  • How can I reach Neoria from Delhi?I

    BY AIR. If you are visiting India for the first time then it is better for you to take a domestic flight from Delhi to Bareilly (city nearby).

    BY TRAIN. Another option is to travel by train. From Delhi airport to the train station by taxi approximately US$ 15 then by train either to Rudrapur or to Bareilly approximately US$ 15. Both cities (Rudrapur & Bareilly) are 70km from Neoria. From there the school’s car will pick you up and drop you to school after 1hr and 30minsmooth drive free of cost.
