200 hour Yoga Teacher Training

The program

The 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training is the foundation for every yoga teacher to be. Our 200 hour TTC is a multi style teacher training, which means we do not focus on one style of yoga, but we focus mainly on Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. This allows you to get an understanding of several aspects of yoga and it allows you to feel which style of yoga suits you best. We do not only give you an understanding of Hatha and Vinyasa, but we also share our knowledge on meditation, cleansing processes, yoga philosophy, the yogic diet, chakras, pregnancy yoga and children’s yoga.

Our course has been developed over the years into a well put together schedule that will guide you smoothly throught all the information given during the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. This 200 hour course is intensive and can be overwelming. Our certified and experienced teachers will share their knowledge with you, inspire you and support you throughout your journey.

The course subjects

HATHA YOGA

Hatha yoga is the origin of all Yoga types. It is the union of opposing forces, ha- meaning “sun” and -tha meaning “moon”. Hatha Yoga is a slow paced stretching class that attempts to balance and calm the mind while strengthening the body asanas. The practice of Hatha Yoga finds a balance between your sun and moon traits and balances the opposites within you –– from the right and left sides of your brain to the masculine and feminine sides of your personality. Shatkriyas, Asanas, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandha and meditations are practiced to achieve the state of Samadhi.

VINYASA FLOW YOGA

In Vinyasa Flow Yoga one can pick up any level of asanas and explore them with creativity and flow. It is more dynamic and it can be like a dance. It can be adapted by participants of any physical level and can be taught with modified asanas, if required.

YOGA PHILOSOPHY

“Yoga is not an ancient myth buried in oblivion. It is the most valuable inheritance of the present. It is the essential need of today and culture of tomorrow.”  – Swami Stayananda Saraswati

Introduction to the History of Yoga, Different paths of Yoga: Understand yoga history with our best yoga teacher training programs in India. Knowing the origin of yoga is as important as practicing it. The aim of all yoga practices is same- reduce sufferings and give a healthy life.

Yogsutras of Patanjali: Yogsutras is divided into four chapters: Samadhipada, Vibhutipada, Sadhanapada, and Kaivalyapada. Patanjali was the first person who introduced yoga practices in a comprehensive volume.

Ethics for Yoga Teachers: There is no shortcut in adherence with yoga ethics. A yoga teacher should stick with ethical guidelines in personal life, with students as well as outside the class.

Yogic Lifestyle and Yogic Diet: The food we eat has an enormous impact on our physical, mental and emotional states. Hence vegetarian food is preferred in training. Introduction to Ayurveda for a Healthy Lifestyle: Doshas depict the combination of mental, physical and emotional features. Our body will remain healthy if vatta, pita and kapha are in the balance. Understand your own dosha and adapt suitable diet for your dosha.

YOGA ANATOMY

Yoga unites mind and body. A yoga teacher should be aware of inner workings of the body for knowing the impact of poses. The primary systems include skeleton system, muscular system, respiratory system, digestive system, nervous system, hormonal system and immune system. Anatomy involves the study of all these systems to make yoga safe and healthy.

TEACHING METHODOLOGY

We will give you knowledge on how to teach, adjust and align. But more importantly, we give you the opportunity to teach and practice the teaching. Get comfortable standing infront of a class of eager students and improve your teaching skills.

MEDITATION

Meditation means where your mind stops and one experiences the stillness. Being present in the here and now, fully aware, unclouded by the dust of thoughts, emotions, desires, past or future – just being! Meditation is the state of pure witnessing consciousness to which Indian mystics have referred to as ‘Drashta’ or ‘Sakshi. There are hundreds of methods and techniques to reach this state of pure awareness. The techniques are doorway and preparation to Meditation. In India most of the meditation techniques are based on the 112 Meditation techniques given by Lord Shiva in ‘Vigyan Bhairava Tantra’
