Online Yoga Teacher Training
Honestly, coming from a traditional Gurukula background, we are not pro to learning or teaching Yoga online. We never invested ourselves in online yoga teacher training, though we are asked by a lot of students week after week until this January 2021.
With a very deep sense of responsibility and keeping the quality of what we do in mind, we started designing a structure for the online teacher training.
We do not wish to be just teaching you some asanas and pranayama online and disappear.
We have been trying to find the best method to make it as similar as it could have been on-site training here at Samyak Yoga Mysore.
This course structure needs your investment of time and energy every day with an understanding that being a Yoga Teacher is a noble responsibility.
after a successful response and fruitful learning experience from our online students, we are back again with another course. this time it is Ashtanga Yoga!
Why should you take this training?
Samyak Yoga is one of the fastest-growing Yoga communities in the world with over 2000 students across 80 nationalities.
Some special features of this training are:

Traditional Ashtanga Yoga Asana Practice
During this training, we entirely focus on exploring the traditional method of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Practice. We do not mix up different other styles. This traditional wisdom of Yoga practice allows you to explore all different aspects of ashtanga practice related to primary series ‘ Yoga Chikitsa’.
However, at the end of the training, there might be an introduction to popular traditional methods so that as an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher you know about other styles too.
As a Yoga Teacher, you should know about how muscles functions and how the human skeleton is used in the asana practice. We do not talk just about different systems in a boring way. Instead, these sessions are fascinating in understanding the asanas, how to practice and teach without injuries etc.
The sessions also focus on anatomy behind pranayamas, such as how respiratory system is interlinked with Prana system of Yogic wisdom. The sessions also shed light on anatomical perspectives of the Bandhas.
These sessions bring out the Yoga teacher within you. How to practice a particular asana, how to prepare for the same asana, what are the props used, who can / can’t practice, what are the benefits, how to teach that asana, how to use your voice etc are discussed in the series of sessions during the asana clinic.
Asana Clinics are the fundamentals that make you the Yoga Teacher that you aspire to be. These sessions discuss every detail about the asana that you need to know as a Yoga Teacher.
Moreover, this session will demystify the vinyasa counts and help you understand the real purpose and significance of Sanskrit counts that you always listen to from a traditional teacher during led-class.
Pranayama and Meditation
Pranayama and Meditation are the essences of asana practice. These everyday sessions offer the practice beyond asana and these techniques make you a complete Yoga teacher, instead of being an asana teacher.
Traditional asana practice in Ashtanga style of yoga, has always emphasized on 3 different aspects of practice that play a pivotal role in enhancing the quality of your asana experience. what are those three major things that we should follow and include in our practice? what is Tristhana? answers for all such questions and much more will be addressed during the course. As a Yoga Teacher, it is significant to know how to teach the traditional way. Following the traditional framework, you will explore the traditional methods of leading an Ashtanga session in ‘Mysore Style’. This is one of those tools that make the teacher skillful and every class interesting.
Being an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher-to-be, at the end of the course, you should be able to deepen your self practice and enhance your wisdom about the traditional practice of teaching and learning yoga. Only then you will be a Yoga Teacher, or else just a Yoga Instructor.
