Parimukti 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Program

The program starts off with a strong focus on your own practice of pranayama, meditation, asana and chanting. The physical classes are alternated with philosophical approaches that will open our understanding of the nature of our minds, and how we can make our lives more purposeful. In order to better understand the profound meaning of these practices, we will also learn about the effects of silence immersion throughout the day. Only in silence can we go deep within and start to listen, and observe, our body, mind, and actions. This period is devoted to purifying our physical and mental bodies.

Depth and understanding

The focus of the second half of the training consists in a deep studying and understanding of the Yoga practice which we ultimately want to share. Deep understanding and awareness both enriches your own daily practice and will create a fertile soil for your own unique teaching foundations and ensure a successful and enriching process.

Practice your way to perfection

Every morning will be dedicated to meditation, pranayama, and asana. The rest of the day we will study the asanas, pranayama, meditation, and chanting. We will also learn mantras from the Vedas, with a focus on their meaning, application, and proper pronunciation.

Instructors

Bhavini Sharma
Bhavini’s lifestyle, growing up in India, has always been sustained by asanas, pranayama and meditation. She, however, made a regular practice after an emotionally rough period few years back and since then, she has never looked back. She has learnt under various teachers across India and blends the teachings to share a session designed to suit present moment, mood and level of the practitioners. She emphasizes on alignment while teaching Hatha yoga and breath work during Vinyasa Kramas. Bhavini strives to help her students compensate what’s missing from their lives off the mat.
Manjeet Mathur
Manjeet is born and brought up in India and has been travelling since seven years through the country seeking inspiration from different teachers. He has been a professional dancer, fitness enthusiast and intuitive since an early age. Life changed for him when he found ‘his’ teacher guiding him through heart meditations and conscious breathwork. Since then, he has been sharing a wonderful combination of Hatha yoga, heart meditations, dance therapy and massage techniques. He believes love and compassion are the only religion and life is a celebration of one’s own authentic self.
Rory Higham
Rory has studied yoga for more than a decade having been first introduced to it through the classical vinyasa krama system of Srivatsa Ramaswami, a direct pupil of Krishnamacharya for more than 25 years. He has since gone on to explore many different styles of yoga including Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar, Vinyasa Flow and Dharma. Rory is consistently amazed by the power of yoga to bring about profound transformation. As a qualified five element acupuncturist, his seven year study of the Daoist nature of Classical Chinese Medicine has further informed his understanding of yoga and its benefits.

She was always curious to understand how things work, and to and explore herself in this world. At the age of 9 she started to dance.
