Hatha Yoga Teacher Training
The Course Syllabus
Traditional Hatha Yoga Practice
The early morning practice brings you the traditional style of Hatha Yoga. This practice is built slowly from the first week to the last week. The intensity gets deeper from intermediate to advanced level of practice.
You will be discovering Subtle Alignments of every asana with its variations, techniques and tips to practice are explored every day in Asana Clinic. As a skilled Hatha Yoga Teacher, you should know the safe practices as well as different levels of teaching the same asanas. It is also important to explore, practice and get the experience of Art of Hands on Adjustments. These Hands-on Adjustments can really enhance your understanding of asanas and teaching Hatha Yoga.
You will also be working on building your own Self Practice as this is one of the aspects yoga teachers lack. You will work on building, tasting the personal practice of Hatha Yoga, the foundation of a Hatha Yoga Teacher.
Build your Self Practice
Practicing and Teaching go hand in hand. The more you practice, better your teaching. As you evolve as a Hatha Yoga Teacher, building your personal practice gets harder.
During Hatha Yoga Teacher Training, we focus on building your self-practice of Hatha Yoga. It involves on how to prepare for the self-practices and how to find the progress in your personal journey of Hatha Yoga Practice.
‘Abhyasa’ – Regular Practice
Making of a Hatha Yoga Teacher
It is not sufficient if you have a good practice of Traditional Hatha Yoga. It is also not sufficient if you know the philosophy of Yoga or even how to teach the asanas. It is a requirement of a better-refined Yoga teacher that you know how to sequence your own Traditional Hatha Yoga class. We discuss the Do’s & Don’ts of creating Hatha Yoga class sequences, work on the timing of them, find the modifications if required and so on. This is one of the essentials for you on the path of becoming a Yoga Teacher.
Making of a Yoga Teacher
The Art of Hands-on Adjustments
It is an important aspect of exploring the skeleton of asanas. As you assist and adjust someone, you will be able to understand the techniques, different body types etc. It enhances your understanding of asanas in a deeper way. The Hands-on Adjustments is an art.
During the training, you will be working on every asana with regards to “how to practice, subtle techniques, modifications, the art of hands-on Adjustments” etc.
A skilled Yoga Teacher will know how the human body moves and what would be the impact of the movement. If Yoga is balance between the movement and stability, understanding of human system is the foundation for it. You may not need to know the name of every muscle, but the concepts, systems and the methodology of the practice is a must. Yoga Anatomy sessions are focusing on safe, proper practice of asana and pranayama with fundamental understanding of Yoga Anatomy.
Teach to Learn
You become a better Hatha Yoga Teacher when you keep your student within alive and afresh. You become a better student when you teach. During the training, you will be teaching every day from Day-2 under the guidance of the Lead Teacher. As you teach, you will have more questions. The more you find questions, your knowledge of Yoga practice gets firm. This is the foundation of finding the Yoga Teacher within.
Learn & Teach Pranayama
Pranayamas are always the under-rated, the most needed part of the practice. Most often, we do not know how to practice or we may not have built the taste of regular practice. During the training, we strive to inculcate the regular practice of Pranayama so that it becomes a part of your daily routine.
You will also be required to teach Pranayama. The more you teach, better will be your practice. It allows you to get more equipped Hatha Yoga Teacher.
Yoga Philosophy is very fascinating. But when presented/taught bad, it seems boring. During the training, we discuss Yoga Philosophy not as information, but how it can be implemented in daily life. It is very transformative to dig the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Chakras, Nadis & Koshas etc.
Practicing Jala Neti & Trataka are significant as they enhance your ability to purify the respiration and enhance the focus of the mind respectively. These are the two major tools we require on the path of Yoga.
Your asana practice is a proper foundation to build the state of meditation within. For a yoga Practitioner, it is one of the most significant aspects to cultivate the habit of meditating properly everyday.
