This course is for you if:

You have a regular yoga practice and have a basic understanding of what the Ashtanga primary series is.

You want to develop your own personal practice of Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow.

You're ready to deepen your understanding of Yoga Philosophy, Pranayama, Anatomy, Ayurveda and diet.

You want to awaken your inner teacher with a view to teaching in the future.

Course objectives

  • Develop your own personal practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga including breathing techniques
  • Know about the Skeletal and Muscular Systems
  • Teach an Ashtanga Based Flow lesson to your peers
  • Learn and practice Pranayama, Kryias and Mudras
  • Study Patanjalis Yoga Sutras and know how to incorporate into your daily practice

Personal Asana Practice

The program offers a strong foundation in Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow Yoga, concentrating on the correct alignment of the postures of the Primary Series. Your course will start with Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Led Classes. Your Senior Teacher will guide you through the full Primary Series, with modifications, while our Assistant Teachers support you in ensuring the correct alignment of the asanas. By the end of your second week, you will be ready to start practising by yourself in the Primary Series Mysore Style Classes. Here, the teacher will no longer lead you through the class. You will complete the series, together with your peers, at our own pace and in your own time. Your Senior Teacher will then check your alignment, help you deepen the posture and, if appropriate, adjust you in the posture. Self-Practice is a great way for our teachers to personalise your development. Again, Assistant Teachers support this practice.

Technical workshops in the afternoon will focus on the key areas: Hip Opening, Jump Back, Transitions and Backbending. These workshops are particularly rewarding in terms of measuring the visible progress that you make and are a reminder that yoga can be fun and interactive. This is a great contrast to the self-discipline and focus of your Self-Practice Mysore morning sessions.

Pranayama (breathing techniques)

From your first day, you will be encouraged to bring awareness to your breath. In Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow Yoga, the breath initiates the movement from posture to posture. It is impossible to progress through the series without familiarity of the rhythm of your own breath, improving your focus. You will learn 4 Pranayama techniques that will help you to lengthen your breath, increase your lung capacity and strengthen the nervous system. This is an important aspect of yoga that is often overlooked as physical practice takes precedence. Pranayama is a great way to alleviate stress and tension, something that is often endured in modern society. Pranayama practice will allow you to build mental and emotional strength to help you maintain a healthy sense of wellbeing, not just on the YTTC but in your everyday daily life.

Tutorials will explain the theory accompanying these breathing techniques enabling you to practice effectively during guided classes.

Kriyas (cleansing) and Mudras (energy seals)

Cleansing will clear the system and allow the breath to flow freely. You will learn 4 cleansing techniques on your course. Mudras will allow you to seal energy within the body. Again, tutorials will support the practice of both of these.

Anatomy of Alignment Classes

These classes will allow you to gain a deeper insight into the series by looking in detail at the body mechanics of each and every posture. A clear understanding of the Skeletal and Muscular Systems is vital in order that you can engage with the postures and what is to be achieved in a posture in terms of its anatomical focus. Our aim is that you build on prior knowledge of anatomy whatever level that may be and leave with a greater awareness of your own body. During these classes, you will also focus on how to modify you own practice in terms of identifying your weaknesses. These may be due to a lack of strength or flexibility in a particular area. We will help you identify such areas and give you preparation techniques to allow for improvements in your personal practice. This class provides the opportunity for us to really assist with your practice on a personal level. The class is delivered by one of our Senior Teachers but supported by several of our Assistant Teachers in order that individual attention is received throughout the class.

Teaching Methodology

You will start to teach your peers during the first week of your training. You will instruct each other on a one to one basis and progress to devising and delivering your own lesson plan. Each week, we will provide tools for you to develop your teaching skills, facilitating you to build your own yoga class that you will teach during the final week. Teaching Methodology sessions include: Opening a Class, Sequencing, Instructions, Relaxation Techniques, Corrections and Adjustments, Modifications. Our students always find this a particularly memorable experience as the majority will teach for the first time. Participating in each others classes and providing constructive feedback for your peers is a great way to learn and supports our ethos that learning is sharing.

Yoga Philopsophy

Classical Yoga Philosophy is interwoven throughout the program and you will be introduced to Patanjalis Yoga Sutras, allowing you to make your own comparisons of classical and contemporary yoga, posing the question, What is Yoga? These sessions are a great time for philosophical debate and indeed provided a welcome insight into the views of your fellow students. Each yoga class will have an intention with a spiritual message that will allow you to understand how we can incorporate philosophy into practice. Hari Krishna will deliver a talk on Yoga in Gita, a beloved Indian text from which many lessons can be learnt.

Mysore self practice or Vinyasa Flow (Day 1, 3 & 5)

Mysore self practice will give you the chance to experience meditation through movement. Moving consciously with the breath, you will create a powerful energy field around the body that will assist you to keep your focus and go deeper into your practice. In Mysore self practice, you will be following the Primary Series as your teacher assists and adjusts you. This will allow you to become familiar with each of the postures so that you can let go and go beyond the mind.

Hip Opening Workshop (Day 2)

This is a powerful and dynamic class designed to open the hips. The hips are one of the major joints in the body and open hips is a key to moving deeper into your practice, helping you master more challenging gateway postures of the Primary Series. Hip opening helps to release blocked tensions and stored emotion. In making our hips more flexible, we can help keep our lower backs healthy. During Hip Opening class we also work on developing our leg strength, as strong legs and thighs result in hip flexibility.

Vinyasa Class: Jump Through/Back (Day 4)

Kranti Yoga will lead you through this powerful workshop intended to isolate and strengthen the parts of the body required for a light, graceful and floaty Vinyasa. Well work on building strength in the arms and shoulders, core, back and legs. Not only will you learn tools and technique to improve your jump through and jump backs, we will break down each stage of the transition and each movement for you to apply and try during Mysore sessions.

Back Bending Workshop (Day 6)

Done on the last day of your 6 day practice, all previous sequences build up to this one. To perform back bends, the rest of the body needs to be open and you need a calm, open mind.

During this workshop we will take a look in depth at the correct technique, alignment and breathing for performing intense back bends without injury. This class begins by warming up the whole body with three different styles of sun salutations, working through the spine from the cervical vertebrae, through the thoracic to the lumbar region to help you gain maximum flexibility throughout the entire back. Back bending is an incredibly important part of yoga as spinal health is absolutely key to overall health and wellbeing. The spine is connected with our whole nervous system, circulatory system and the Nadis.

Free day (Day 7)

Your day of rest comes after back bending to allow your body to recover and fully integrate your practice. We advise you to rest completely on this day and avoid any form of asana.

Following a family tradition, at the age of 9, he frequented a guru named Sant Chana Baba for meditation and yogic spiritual talks. Chana Baba was an old Tantra Master living in a temple located on Shakti Mountain. He gave Tarun his spiritual name, Kranti, meaning revolution. It is no surprise that this has therefore become the name of his successful business, a yoga school with accommodation, on Patnem Beach, Goa.
