Our 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training course is based on the eight limbs of Ashtanga yoga, not just on the Asana practice. There is a lot of emphasis placed on the different limbs of yoga, Yamas, Niyamas, Pranayama, concentration, meditation techniques and mindfulness too.This comprehensive curriculum also covers Yoga philosophy based on the Yoga Sutras, yogic lifestyle and ethics, anatomy and physiology for yoga teachers and practitioners, among other topics related to the practice of cultivating a balanced life. We are unorthodox and open in our approach towards yoga. We strongly encourage you to bring your own creativity, intuition and spiritual experiences into your teaching styles. We don’t follow any religion or schema in our courses.
At the end of the course, you will be ready to practice the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series as self-practice, to teach classes based on this style of yoga, and also to create your own Vinyasa flow sequences with various themes.
You will also have the benefit of exposure to other styles of asana practice, including Yoga Nidra, Yin and restorative yoga, in order to develop your experience and knowledge of other yoga traditions and styles during the course.
