GENERAL INFORMATION

Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with us will be a life-sublimating experience. Nevertheless, the training will be an intensive journey that keeps you occupied throughout the course with a well-organized schedule that suites every unique aspirant of Yoga. The classroom filled with vibes of learning would encourage every student to fathom the practice and philosophy of Yoga to its depth. Team spirit during the sessions of teaching methodology, anatomy and art of hands on adjustments would be significantly enhancing the process of learning each posture to its fullest. The same has been acknowledged by our past students and you are on your way to experience the same. Welcome to Samyak Family.  

 
Practice:

To practice a particular pose into its deep, one needs to know intelligent way of using the muscles, the appropriate way of breathing, meditative state of the mind and spiritually rooted soul. Practice of postures is a moving meditation. In the session “Teaching Methodology” we try to explore the concepts on which a particular posture is developed, how it can be practiced into a deeper level, the benefits and contra indications. We also discuss the usage of props, the balance between the strength and flexibility and so on.
   

The Sanskrit names of the postures are explained elaborately and how to teach an Ashtanga Yoga Led class effectively is evaluated in detail. The benefits of the specific sequencing and the principles of Vinyasa (the movements between postures), Ujjayi Pranayama (the sound induced breath), Drishti (the gaze) and Bandhas (the three locks or seals) are included as essential elements of the practice and teaching of Ashtanga Yoga during the course.

   

Intensive Vinyasa
The evening session explores the different sets of Vinyasa flow. A variety of Vinyasa flow including standing, sitting, twisting, back-bending, hip opening and inversions will prepare the aspirants to explore their inner potentialities. These evening practices explore the theme based practices which in turn aids the participant to cater the need of his/her students back home as a teacher. The participants will also have an opportunity to practice the glimpses of the second series (Intermediate series of Ashtanga Vinyasa) in the last week.

COURSE INFORMATION

Our Teacher Training programs strictly follow the requirements listed by Yoga Alliance, USA to certify our participants and prepare them to be the best practitioner and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). So we have classified our sessions in five categories as mentioned below.

 
PRACTICE
  • Practical sessions will be conducted twice every day.
  • Morning session will be focused on the traditional Hatha Yoga Practice
  • Evening sessions will be dedicated for other styles such as Shivananda, Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga Vinyasa primary series etc.
  • You will be given a few class modules in the third week through which you will be able to develop your own personal practice. This also enhances the quality of your practice.

 

TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Teaching methodology sessions focus on:

Alignments

Beauty and perfection of every Asana depends upon two factors; One being the flexibility and the other is the alignment of different body parts involved in the posture. Flexibility can be achieved with regular practice and for understanding the posture one would need a good understanding of the posture and fine tune the subtle movements required to land in a perfect position.

Art of hands on adjustments

Art of Adjustments is one of the significant fields where Yoga teacher has to work constantly to grow and to keep his/her class unique. Hence we try to explore it with every detail. The importance of encouraging students to continue with a regular practice and preparing them for Mysore style is emphasized.

Corrections

As a teacher it is most important to know the integral aspects of Yoga postures, its limitations and benefits which in turn will help notice the common mistakes in a posture performed by a student and accordingly make the subtle changes required.

Group class Sessions

To develop the teaching skills we have sessions named 'Group class' which is one of the inevitable parts of the training. Starting from day 2, you will be leading a practical class for a group of fellow participants every day based on the Asanas learned by you. This builds the confidence, tones up the teaching skills and other required criteria to be a teacher. This class will always be supervised by one of the main teachers and there will be a feedback session after every group class session to improve the quality of the participant's teaching. After building the confidence, skills and other required criteria, you will be taking a class for the whole group in the last week. This prepares you to get ready to teach once you go back.

Yoga Class Sequencing

You will be asked to design a yoga class module based on what you have been practicing under the guidance of a teacher. By practicing the class modules, you will be able to teach your class back home effectively with creativity catering the needs of different types of people coming to your classes.

 

DVDs on Practice and Art of Adjustments

During the last week of the training, we will dedicate a few hours to record the postures in the form of videos and images which include how to practice a particular posture, its variations, the subtle techniques involved in that particular posture, specific art of adjustments involved in that posture, how to begin and dismount the posture etc. These videos and images will help you as a great tool once you start teaching the classes back home. Besides, Samyak Yoga team will be there to help you in all ways even after your course completion. You are encouraged to be in touch whenever you have any questions or require help, Samyak Yoga team and other members of Samyak Yoga Family will always be there to help, assist and inspire to walk in this beautiful path of Yoga. 
 

 

PHILOSOPHY & LIFE ETHICS

In the lecture sessions you will have a wonderful opportunity to understand the Yoga philosophy from the teachers who have a good experience and knowledge of the same that they gained during 6 years of rigorous study under different yogis and scholars from an ancient system of education called Gurukulam. During these sessions all queries regarding yoga, culture, spirituality and life ethics are welcomed and addressed with due respect. Every participant will have a good basic understanding of Yoga sutras, Hatha Yoga Tradition, different styles of practice, eight limbs of Yoga etc…

Yoga Teacher Training Course Manuals

Each student will be provided with two detailed & comprehensive Yoga Manuals, i.e. Theory and Practical manuals, which will be used throughout the Yoga Teacher Training and provide for an invaluable tool of reference for the students' career in teaching Yoga & deepening their personal practice.

 

Highlights of the Theory Yoga Manual include Chanting and the meaning of the mantras with connotations, Meditation Techniques & the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali in Sanskrit with English transliteration and meaning too, Pranayama & Kriyas, Practice and Guidelines, Nadis, Chakras, Layers of human body and their connections with Koshas, Mudras and etc.

 

The practical manual elaborately discusses the traditional Hatha Yoga, i.e. practice, benefits, limitations, the mistakes your students may commit and how to assist / adjust the student. The manual focuses on Yoga Anatomy which sheds light on the muscles used to perform a particular posture and how to enhance the quality of the posture without injuring oneself.
