Yoga Teacher Training
If you have come to a point in your life where you want to learn more about Yoga, its roots and multitude of practices and glimpse the true magnitude of Authentic Yoga it may be time for you to take up a training course.
Students enrol in courses for their own personal development or if they have a desire to teach and share these precious practices. However, it is important to find the right course for you according to your personal aims and goals.
We are offering a beautiful traditional and authentic yoga experience. We teach yoga in an ancient ashram style, a community of like-minded souls seeking the universal truth.
We incorporate Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation Chanting and Bhajans, Yoga chikitsa/therapy and Hindu Philosophy in its practical and applied approach to improving our health and well being.
Along with Asana or Hatha Yoga practice we also teach and practice Yamas and Niyamas (moral and ethical observances), Pranayama (energy work through the breath) is a particularly large and important part of our Paramparai, Jnanayoga kriyas (visualisation practices and relaxation techniques) Karma Yoga (selfless action or work for others). You will find our courses are very in-depth.
We specialise in Advanced Teacher Training and enjoy working with already qualified yoga teachers in their further professional and personal development and sharing techniques that we only find in Indian Ashrams.
This course is usually spread over 12 residential weekends over one year period. You will learn a set or series of hatha yoga, pranayama and relaxation techniques to follow daily, which changes every month.
You will also study Ashtanga (the eight limbs) yoga philosophy, basics of yoga in other scriptures such as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, anatomy and physiology and yoga teaching skills during this course.
This course is as much as to develop your personal yoga practice as well as achieving an understanding of hatha yoga for your yoga teaching through personal experience to become a good yoga teacher.
Our courses are almost all residential (except for our Bristol based course but still we spend some time at the ashram) as we try to give the full ‘ashram’ experience to be immersed in the teachings and practices as much as possible.
Our 200 Hours Intensive residential Teacher Training Course is the same syllabus as our 1 year course compacted into a month.
The course is divided into two sets of 2 weeks and you will be immersing yourself everyday in the learning of Yoga.
The 500hrs Yoga Teacher Training course is for the seeker who wishes to develop his personal sadhana and professional yoga teaching.
Deepen your knowledge and experience in Hatha Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Chakras and Kundalini, Yantra and Tantra, Mantras and Chanting, Karma Yoga, Key Yoga scriptures like Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Yoga Vashistha, Bhagavat Gita, and much more.
In this course, we show you yoga, it's modified approaches so that you can teach it to audiences at all different levels, beginners, special population, advanced students, etc.
We are looking forward to sharing this knowledge with you.
