200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course Details

Morning Asana Classes

We follow the tradition of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga which has a fixed map of Asana practice. In the beginning of the course we will help you go through each and every pose in details so that you can build up your self-dependent and self-paced practice. Once you reach to a certain level of confidence then we introduce you to the flow which can be either guided, lead or spontaneous. We have included such Asanas in our morning classes that may be perceived as a fusion of beginners and intermediate-level movements. The practitioners will learn the way of protecting the body while performing Asanas. More than 80 Asanas are taught in this training course. The major style is Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow with Iyengar Yoga Props that energizes the flow and provides a safely aligned arena to move from pose to pose with breathing space and great fun. It combines Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga.

The 200-hr YTTC teaches the way of using a belt, block, ropes and bolster for better and deeper injury free practice. It also covers instructions on new variations of Asanas which are designed to match the anatomical, physiological, hormonal and genetic variations of human body.

Alignment and Hands-on Adjustments

As a potential yoga teacher, you like to develop a lasting relationship with your students. So, hands-on adjustment training would be very helpful for you. There are several reasons for learning the hands-on adjustments as a yoga teacher.

  • Posture guiding– When a trainee tries to attain a posture safely, the trainer is concerned about the injury from the wrong technique. That is why hands-on adjustments will be useful for guiding a trainee into the right posture.
  • Breathing technique– Learning a proper breathing technique is a part of a yoga course. As a potential yoga trainer, you need to help your students identify the right breathing points. With the hands-on adjustment, you can offer your trainee a physical touch point needed for breathing.
  • Alignment correction– A student always struggles with the proper alignment. But he may be at risk of getting injured. As a yoga teacher, you will help him with hands-on adjustments.

Thus, we have included hands-on adjustment as an important subject in our 200-hour course syllabus.

Teaching Skills and Practicum

This program is a great balance between helping you to experience the ancient tradition of yoga and developing the skill of sharing your experiments and experiences with your students.
