Syllabus

HOURS + TOPICS

Asanas are defined as positions and the word directly above phrase is the seat. Basically postures were designed to act as stable positions for extended meditation. But more than that, the Asanas open energy channels (chakras) and the physical centers of the body. Asanas purify and strengthen the body and control and focus the mind. Asanas are a classic part of yoga’s eight limbs, which stipulates that asanas should be stable and comfortable, casual and permanent.

The word Pranayama comes from Sanskrit and is usually translated as “breathing technique.” Pranayama originates from the yogic science, which is about checking the “flow” of Prana (life energy.) In yoga it’s said that when you control this pranic flow, you control the physical and mental flow of energy in the universe, and on a daily/practical level this controls your bodily systems including breath, body, organs and the mind.

In Vinyasa yoga, we practice Ujjayi breath, which is an invigorating and soothing tool. Breathing creates heat in the body which have a direct impact on the performance of the different asanas, etc. It’s not the only breathing we use but most often it is called base breath for other Pranayama exercises.

Study the physical anatomy of the human body and the mechanics of the body in order to better understand and appreciate the science of yoga and its effects and benefits. Learn how to practice and teach safely in accordance with the limitations of the body. 

Yoga is considered a divine science of life that came to enlightened wise men through meditation in India more than 2000 years ago. Yoga is first mentioned in two old Indian collections: Vedas and Upanishads (the later part of the Vedas) and the latter was the platform for yoga teachings and philosophy called Vedanta. The team wants the program to create an overview of yogic development and teachers should become acquainted with Yoga’s Eight Limbs, which are a set of ethical rules of conduct considered to be an important part of yoga practice.

Bandha means keeping or strengthening: bandhas create stihra (stability / support) and allows for freedom of movement. They collect the body’s internal wind / energy and therefore provides a better and stronger flow of energy and body and thereby mind.

Granthis (Dukha – negative space) all obstacles to the free flow of energy is called Granthis. By understanding the nature of these Granthis we can find the optimum potential energy of our body and mind. In other words we will be able to change from Granthis (dukha – negative space) to Sukha (positive space)

Koshas – you can call the various levels as we have in the body, the physical, intelligence, energy body, etc. These levels are important to be aware of through learning, export and training.

In this part of the course you will learn first of all the basic elements of massage technique. You will review and work with techniques that will enable you to perform a 1½ hour full body massage, which includes muscle massage, yoga features, acupressure, joint manipulation, relaxation exercises and work with energy pathways. In other words, you will be given tools to work with the body, both as a complete 90 minutes of body massage and also with specific problems. As you are becoming yoga teachers you will bring to attention how to use these techniques when teaching yoga classes both for the corrections of students or as therapeutic tools in one-to-one sessions.

Certification

You are required to pass all the assignments and to attend to all of the classes of the whole training. There are also materials and books that you have to study all throughout the YTT. Upon completion of the course students will receive a 200-hour Yoga Alliance approved yoga teachers certificate. This enables students to teach globally.
