One month / 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training in India. This program is ideal for long term yoga students who want to experience the intensive practice of traditional Hatha yoga in a peaceful environment. Half of our yoga teacher training course content is focused on training new teachers with detailed practice and teaching methodologies of the asanas. While another half of the teacher training course content is focused on improving Pranayamas, Meditation and a practical philosophy to combine the physical practice of Hatha Yoga with traditional spirituality and Yogic lifestyle for yoga students living in a competitive stressed life in the modern society. So, this yoga teacher training Retreat in India is not only for would-be yoga teachers, but also for anybody wanting to make a transformational shift in their body-breath-awareness and trying to find a meaningful purpose in Life.
This yoga teacher training course is focussed on learning to practice and to teach traditional Hatha Yoga style, which focuses on improving the spinal anatomy at the core of all asanas and not about speed and flow, which can work against spinal anatomy. Traditional hatha yoga also focuses on Chakras, subtle energy body, to customize the asana practice for each individual, based on their physical and mental requirements, rather than imitating a generic sequence or generic asana as seen on magazine covers, without considering the limitations of joints.
Traditional Hatha Yoga class which are taught in our Yoga Teacher Training always include Pranayamas and Yoga Nidra. Another major difference between modern styles of yoga and traditional hatha yoga in our ashram is we focus more on Stability (Sthira) with right alignments at 8 major joints and breathing to increase the duration of asana. We discourage the students and would be yoga teachers from doing faster flows while ignoring basics of joint and spinal anatomy to exert cardiac activity and firing up muscles without supply proper amount of prana (breath) to muscles and heart.
This 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in India covers all the basic techniques and skills to get started on the noble path of sharing your practical knowledge of yoga – both physical & intellectual – in a professional way. Even if you are not interested in teaching yoga, the practices and philosophy have a detoxifying effect to enrich your body, mind and intellect, and also to understand the purpose of life and know-how to live a sane and peaceful life in this crazy modern world.
