Major Curriculum Topics

First part of the program till 26 February will be same as for 200 hrs. If you have already completed 200Hrs program from Yoga Ashram or from any other school, this will be your chance to go deeper into the topic and horn your skils. From 27 feb to 10 march, for the 300 hrs program, you will go beyond just asana to present an in-depth study of pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, yoga philosophy, prana and our energy body, advanced sequencing, anatomy, developing a personal practice for yourself and help others, how to develop a meaningful private session and how to conduct successful yoga workshop programs as well as other tools to advance your career opportunities.

a

Six weeks intensive program.
The more you practice the more you advance.  200Hrs training concludes in 4 weeks where 300Hrs training runs for 6 weeks.

b

Advance practice of Backbends and Inversions.
200 Hrs Training lays a foundation by preparing the body and brain. On this base we build practice of advance postures. Backbend and inversions are not only challenging but risky as well. So this training gives you enough time to make your body supple and agile before venturing in relatively tough postures.

c

Deepen the understanding of usage of Yoga-props.
You learn how to intelligently choose household stuffs as a Yoga Prop. For an example the chairs, tables, pillows, slab of the kitchen, books, shoe-rack and many can be used as effective props for different individuals for various purposes. Fortunately, in our cities and yoga studios we can find a wide range of Yoga-props already available; however, you definitely have to learn the ways to use them effectively.

D

Art of designing your Yoga work-shops.

Yoga workshops have two major advantages for the teacher.

  1. You stand out in the crowd of teachers who are busy in their daily routine classes.
  2. You can teach principles of how to do postures effectively and advance quickly.
  3. You has more time to work on students for specific goals.
  4. You will feel deeply satisfied for taking students in deep practice and understanding.
  5. You can earn well out of a well programmed and effective workshop.

Above points were aimed to give you a glimpse of why Taking workshops is important and why  learning to design a workshop according to your natural inclination. We will teach you how to  design a yoga workshop and conduct one.

e

Advance cleansing techniques.
Deep cleansing procedures require more preparation and this TTP provides that. Your body and mind can now handle these detoxifying methods that begins in the third week of your training and continues until the course concludes. All the methods are medically tested and totally authentic and will be practised under the right guidance. However, these practices are for students that are in this program; we will not recommend our students to teach these techniques immediately after the course.

f

Awareness Intensive classes.
In this highly material and technically advancing society; it is hard to live with a great character and unbending authenticity. It is even more difficult when you want to earn your living by teaching Yoga. In our TTP we will continuously work on building awareness that will act as a powerful boat that can sail through all the ups and downs and thus we live a life of purity, passion and abundance.

g

Advance philosophy.
Yoga practice and Yoga teaching are incomplete if it is not blended by the nectar of philosophy. These are not some rule books or just codes of conduct; these are the principles that can lead one from turbulence to tranquillity, from fear to freedom and from selfishness to compassion. We will venture deep in the ancient books (Bhagvad Geeta, Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika etc) and discuss over the verses that are useful for student’s practice and his life.

h

Business of Yoga.
In this age of computers and social media, learning to promote yourself through social media channels is important without wasting time or money. In 200 Hrs course, we learn the basics of yoga business while in 300hrs, we take the marketing sessions a bit more detailed so you can get a head start marketing yourself and your classes.

i

Other Yogic Techniques.
Yoga is not all about Asanas, Pranayama & Meditation. Learn more about our energy body, the five elements, the Pancha Kosha, Nadis, Chakras, Panch vayus, Panch Agnis, ten Indriyas, Mudras, Bandhas and lot more. How we can take Yoga beyond the mat and start our journey towards being a true Yogi.

REQUIRED READING

To be a true Yogi, we need to go beyond the practical sessions and learn from the writings of ancients texts of yoga and renowned masters of Yoga. The books below are an essential part of the deeper understanding of yoga. All course participants are required to learn to chant few sutras from the ancient texts and know their meaning. You will be asked to submit a report for few of these books listed to show an understanding of content. Much of the material in these books will be incorporated into the daily lectures and practices, giving students an adequate opportunity to digest the often elusive but important meaning of the key texts of yoga. All reports and assignments must be completed in order to receive your course certificate.
