You will also learn hands-on adjustments and correct body alignment for the asanas covered in the primary series. You will learn more than what is taught in Mysore. They do not believe in following any path blindly but encourage self-awareness and self-exploration in practice.

Along with learning the physical side of yoga practice, you will also learn the philosophy behind the practice like concepts of Tristhana and Yoga Sutras. You will also deeply study the connection between asana, pranayama practice, and the overall philosophy of yoga. At Om Yoga Shala, philosophy and practice go together.

For them, Ashtanga Vinyasa practice is a meditation by itself, where you learn to live life in 'here and now. The course is designed in such a way that you will not only learn postures of yoga but also learn how to practice yoga mindfully and safely with full awareness of body, mind, and breath.

The course curriculum is designed to recognize the international requirements, Om Yoga Shala aspires to give you authentic knowledge so you can spread the light of yoga around the world. This is an internationally recognized qualification and will help you get insurance and a job to teach anywhere in the world.

Is this course for you?

This course is for anyone who has a commitment to their practice. If you are a qualified teacher with regular practice and have completed 200 hours of TTC, then, they will help you deepen your practice and facilitate your growth. They are always committed to your personal and spiritual development.

What will you learn?

The first step of learning is to unlearn. They like to start from a position of 'not knowing, and then diving into the practice with a fresh mind and practice what resonates with you and your body-mind complex. Ashtanga Vinyasa is a fixed practice but during this training. You will learn many other techniques that will help you improve your physical and spiritual abilities.

These techniques are specially designed by them to help in identifying and removing obstacles to your practice. You will learn the art of connecting one posture to another. The practice of moving from one posture to another with breathing is called Vinyasa.

This knowledge will enable you to formulate your own sequences in a safe and systematic manner. Pranayama and meditation are an integral part of this course. Every morning, you will learn the correct techniques of breathing. You will also be introduced to the safe practices of pranayama to teach your students. You will also learn the Sanskrit mantra chanting.

The most important part of being a yoga teacher is to have a full understanding of the philosophy and aims of yoga, which starts with understanding the meaning of yoga in its true sense. The next important part is adequate knowledge of anatomy and physiological systems of the body. With a proper understanding of these aspects of yoga, you will have a blissful personal practice as well as teaching practice. You will get sufficient teaching practice during the course.

Primary and Intermediate series asana practice

Your main focus will be on asanas covered in the primary and intermediate series. You will practice these on a daily basis along with sessions on correct alignments for these asanas as suited to your body. You will learn Vinyasa, breathing, Drishti, and bandhas for each asana.

Patanjali yoga sutra - Samadhi and Sadhan pada

You will understand the concepts of the Chitta (mind complex) and Vrittis (thought patterns) and the ways and means to control them, which is the definition and aim of yoga. This could also be called the oldest book on psychology. Patanjali lays out the whole philosophy and practice of yoga for them. You will study the two chapters of this text. These chapters detail yoga philosophy and the practice of eight limbs of yoga called Ashtanga yoga.

Advait Vedanta - the yoga of knowledge and Upanishads

You will dive briefly into this exciting discussion on this fascinating subject about the reality of the self. this is also known as the yoga of knowledge or yoga of self-inquiry. You will study one of the principles of Upanishads namely Mandukya Upanishad.

Hinduism Vedic knowledge and yoga anatomy

A factual study of what the term Hinduism means and what constitutes the Vedic Hindu philosophy. You will study the following Vedic concepts:

  • The panch kosha
  • Mantra recitation (mantra - Japa)
  • Daily joints and glands practices (Sukshama Vyayam)
  • Yoga energy locks (Bandha)
  • Meditation (Dhyana)
  • Yogic sleep (Yoga Nidra)

As per the criteria set for the 300-hour Ashtanga yoga teacher training course, your day will start early and you will be on five days a week practice. Despite being on such an intensive schedule, you could find this training an enlightening and interesting process of transformation.

Why this course is for you?

From ancient times sages, swamis, seekers, priests saints, and sadhus have been coming to India to experience the divine promise, the nectar of spirituality, and a flavor of authentic spiritual practice from Indian masters. Many masters went to the west and took with them the knowledge of yoga to the whole world. But, how do you choose a yoga school that can live up to this divine promise in this new age of the world?

If you are looking for a traditional yet evolving yoga practice, this is the course for you. What do they mean by traditional but evolving? They take inspiration from the tradition but, without the dogmas and without putting your own minds in a box. A fixed tradition is a dead tradition. They experiment and evolve, they like to see things as they really are without accepting anything and without conforming to anything. They like to see what resonates with us before accepting it.

If you are looking for a yoga course that is unrestricted and taught by some very enthusiastic and energetic Indian yoga teachers then this is the course for you. If you are interested in questioning your own conditioning, your false sense of reality, and your acquired ideas about who you are? This is the yoga school for you. Yoga is freedom. They invite you to come and discover the real self you.

A typical day

The yoga training schedule begins at 7:00 a.m. with morning prayer followed by a pranayama and silence (Antar Mauna) session. Then you move on to the morning session for the traditional yoga postures and preparatory practices to address specific areas of focus before breakfast. These preparatory practices have been specially designed by them to help students in the practice of the primary series of Ashtanga Vinyasa. After breakfast, there are two main sessions: philosophy and yoga anatomy followed by lunch at noon.

Then there will be some self-study and self-practice time before you begin the afternoon sessions of theory and evening sessions of Ashtanga Vinyasa practice. There will be some inspirational cultural activities, such as Satsang (devotional songs), mantra chanting, and lectures on yoga-related subjects. The module-wise assignments will be a part of the training as that is conducive to gain in-depth knowledge of the subjects and experience through your yoga practices. They encourage the students to go to sleep early at about 10:00 p.m. as that is conducive to the yoga training.
