Sadhana Yoga School proudly offers yoga teacher trainings and events in India, the sacred motherland of yoga.
Our India programs are located at Devarya Welless, located in the heart of a serene seaside town of Goa. Spanning 7,000 square meters, this green retreat overlooking the Morjim Beach is a peaceful sanctuary to reconnect and find peace within. At Devarya, which translates into Divine Belief in Sanskrit, everyone can experience the goodness and mindfulness of a holistic yoga lifestyle.
While attending an event or yoga teacher training in India with us, we will meditate together each morning looking out at the Arabian Sea, practice yoga together on the open air deck, engage in meaningful philosophical discussion in a conscious way allowing us to explore the depth of mind and emotion.

“Amazing opportunity for yoga teacher training course. So many great options for whatever type of experience fits your lifestyle!” – Danielle, Sadhana Yoga School Graduate, New Hampshire Program
“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Sadhana Yoga School. Anjili & Bryan both have a world of knowledge that they impart to their students. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking to either begin or continue their yoga education.” – Kristen, Sadhana Yoga School Graduate, New Hampshire Program
“I went to Fiji in September, 2014. Looking back now in 2016 I understand that this was the best yoga teacher training program I could have ever imagined. Not only did the training improve my physical practice, but I have now embraced Ayurveda and am a much, much healthier person than before my training. I even sent my 19-yr.-old son to Fiji in 2015 to do his 200 hr. training. He had a blast! Daku Resort is sweet.” – Sue, Sadhana Yoga School Graduate, Fiji Program
