You will learn yoga asanas, philosophy, anatomy, meditation, the art of teaching, and methodology. Each class will be about an hour or an hour and a half.


During the yoga teacher training course, the main focus is on basic asanas. You will aim to practice with patience and awareness of alignment early in the morning. To bring balance in the physical body, looking at personal anatomy, and observing individual practice, you will be given supportive input to improve the postures and alignments. You will be bringing mindfulness to the posture and using the power of gravity, making it more beneficial for healthy living.


Breathing is life. Due to stress and tension, many of you create dysfunctional breathing patterns. You will be working on different pranayama practices, relaxing the muscle of respiratory system, supplying oxygen to all the body parts and mind, and creating a right way of breathing for physical and mental health. It is also important to have the correct breathing pattern during asana practice.


Diya Yoga is a non-dogmatic yoga school. Starting from yoga history, Diya Yoga teaches 8 limbs of yoga Sutras by Patanjali. It's more like discussion and teaching on the philosophy of yoga, explaining 3 gunas and wisdom of Bhagavad Gita with freedom on sharing the individual point of view towards yoga. It’s basically implementing yoga not only on the mat but also in your daily life for a balanced and healthy living.


During this course, you will have classes on different meditations. Meditation not only helps you improve your breathing pattern but also helps you be patient and calm in your lives. You will be given training on active, passive, and analytic meditation, encouraging you to try every kind of meditation and then decide what is right for you to be used in your daily life.


During the course, you will learn the physiology and anatomy of body structure, understand different body parts, learn how different stretch happens in each asana, and how it affects your body. This anatomy training will make you aware of your body parts without dissecting them. It will give you a better understanding of your body and your body parts so that you will start living a better life.

Yogic anatomy

In the yogic anatomy training, you will be taught how to understand your body and how to attain control over your body parts. This training will help you understand the energy of your body, detailed explanation of Chakras, Nadis, and Koshas where practical examples and experience are shown. There are kinds of meditation where you can work on your yogic anatomy.

Art of teaching

In the training methodology, you will be encouraged to observe the responsibilities of a yoga teacher. The teacher will explain ethics, values, and encourage you to see how to involve everyone during the class, grow interest amongst them, and how to take care of everyone. The teacher will guide you through the steps to set up a yoga business and what mistakes should be avoided while setting it up.


During the practicum, you will learn to teach each other in small groups of asana class under observation of the teacher, so your fear of teaching will disappear during the yoga teacher training. As practice makes a man perfect, your practice will start at the school itself. This will boost your confidence and makes you ready to give training or classes by the end of yoga teacher training course.


This is a very important subject where you will be explained about each asana.
