At Himalayan Yoga Bliss and Wellness Centre we offer 200 and 300 hours Yoga Teacher's certification that is certified by Yoga Alliance recognised worldwide. This takes place in the beautiful Himalayan region of India backdropped by the majestic Kanchenjunga, considered to be the tallest mountain in the world for centuries., bordered by Nepal to the west and Bhutan to the east, this makes Darjeeling the ideal place for budding Yoga Teachers to understand a more traditional Eastern understanding and approach to Yoga.
We conduct our thoughtfully structured trainings to the needs of every Yoga student, with that extra attention to detail given to help students to reach their full potential during the course. We want our students to leave deeply satisfied with core introduction to various aspects of Yoga our foundational 200 hours training provides and the continuation of their journey at a higher level in the 300 hour course. We are proud to say the majority of our graduates are already teaching at various levels worldwide, in reputed institutions, Yoga centres, or have had the confidence to start their own schools and studios.
During the course we introduce students to the four paths of Yogic philosophy along with yoga sutras of Sage Patanjali. This crucial part of the basic yogic philosophy is the foundation of knowledge throughout the course and expressed through physical techniques of Asanas, Pranayama, Mudras, Bandhas and total immersion into the yogic lifestyle.
Although the course is done with an emphasis on the ancient teaching we are also acutely aware of the modern needs and desires of the physical practises of yoga. During the Asana focused part of the course, students get to the physical practise of Yoga and its 3 major styles; Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa. This gives them a strong base of knowledge on how these styles originated, how they can pass this ancient art to their students and also how they can include it in their own daily practice. Students will be given the opportunity to start designing and teaching portions of classes from the second week of the course allowing them the time to develop but also the confidence to teach while receiving positive and encouraging feedback and critique, allowing them to grow and improve as teachers.
