Anyone who has a passion for Yoga, wishes to do an in-depth study of Asanas and Pranayama, Meditation and Yoga philosophy or would like to share the benefits of this practice with others should feel free to apply for this course. If you have been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series for at least 3 months, it’s an added advantage. But also if you have no or little experience in Ashtanga Vinyasa this course will be suitable for you.
What to expect from the course
The objective of 200 hrs yoga teacher training in India is to provide beginners and experienced Yoga students with strong technical and theoretical experience. This will enable them to perform Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Primary Series with perfection and correct alignment. The course will equip the future teachers to be completely autonomous and ready to run their own yoga classes at the highest standards.
At the yoga TTC at Abhinam Yoga, students learn a unique combination of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Iyengar alignment principles. This approach has an ultimate goal of practicing injury free yoga.
Every morning, students start the day with pranayama class, which is focused on different breathing techniques. This practice gives a good foundation for the ashtanga vinyasa flow class. In the beginning of the Yoga TTC in Goa the ashtanga vinyasa class is led by senior teachers, later students do their own self practice, i.e. mysore style.
The subject of classes in the middle of the day changes every week; going from yoga philosophy, through anatomy up to Ayurveda. On the top of that, students also have marketing classes, during which they get tips on how to promote themselves as yoga teachers and how to do marketing for their future yoga centers.
The afternoon program starts every day with the teaching methodology. Students learn all postures in detail not only to enhance their own practice but most importantly to help others, their future students, to get into and be correctly aligned in each and every pose. During the afternoon yoga classes, students get introduced to other yoga styles, i.e. yin yoga, hatha yoga or restorative yoga. The day is concluded with an evening meditation.
From the second week of the TTC, students actively participate in teaching as well as adjusting others during the classes. This gives students and future yoga teachers the best opportunity to learn how to teach in a very supportive, open and safe environment. After finishing 200 hours TTC at our Yoga School in India, students are trained as well as confident enough to act as yoga teachers and lead yoga lessons.
