To know the reviews, the certification and registration of Ashtanga Samyak Yoga with Yoga Alliance, USA, visit the link HERE
Our Teacher Training programs strictly follow the requirements listed by Yoga Alliance to certify our participants and prepare them to be the best practitioner and registered yoga teacher. So we have classified our sessions in five categories as mentioned below.
* Practical sessions will be conducted twice every day.
* Morning session will be focused on the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Practice
* Evening sessions will be dedicated for intensive Vinyasa flow with different Asanas included.
* For the first two weeks it will be a led class.
* During the third week Mysore style will be introduced to encourage the participant towards self-practice. In the fourth week, all the students will be well prepared and confident to give a demonstration of their teaching skills.
Teaching methodology sessions focus on:
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 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.
To KNOW more about art of adjustments CLICK HERE
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.
To develop the teaching skills we have sessions named 'Group class' which is one of the inevitable parts of the teacher 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 Yoga 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.
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.
You will have sessions on introduction to Yoga anatomy, in which we will discuss the anatomical aspects of Yoga practice. It is important to know how to engage/relax the muscles, deepening the stretches yet not injuring ourselves physically and so on. It is also important to understand the structure of our respiration to improve the quality of the breathing by Pranayama techniques. A whole new world of Yoga Anatomy which improves the quality of our Yoga practice will be explored during the Yoga anatomy sessions.
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, Ashtanga vinyasa tradition, different styles of practice, eight limbs of Yoga etc…
