The subject of classes changes every week, going from yoga philosophy to anatomy of Ayurveda, from Hatha yoga to Ashtanga yoga. On the top of that, the students also provide marketing classes during which students will get tips on how to promote themselves as yoga teachers and how to market themselves for their future yoga classes.

Give yourself a journey that will take you many miles in your life and experience a time with many new impulses and joy, together with the inside yoga team. The training is Yoga Alliance certified and recognized worldwide.

Week 1: alignment - alignment

Alignment, anatomy, and physiology are the main building blocks for good knowledge of movements. Yoga-specific anatomy and physiology skills accompany you this week. You will learn what muscles you have to activate in the cobra and which ones you don’t. Also, you will find out why you have to activate those certain muscles and which movement starts first. In detail, you will learn the movement and support of the individual asanas that accompany you in your practice. Look forward to intensive functional and practical anatomy.

Week 2: Vinyasa - hour construction

In this training week, be established and practised in a specific sequence of movements asanas. Vinyasa is the movement of life. Everything is in motion and everything is in change. Every one of you has already experienced how life goes up and down. There is never a phase in life that lasts forever. At some point, a time for the change of the life phase comes.

This week, you will learn how this particular turns and find out which movement sequences that make sense and which ones make less sense. Your breathing and your movements are coordinated and the connections are illuminated in all facets. Rejoice in flowing hours and be open to change.

Week 3: adjustment - correction techniques

One of the most important and valuable tools for you as a yoga teacher is the tactile correction technique (adjustment). In this training week, you will learn in a structured and tactful manner, to correct your participants. All questions, where do you have to stand, where you can tackle, may you push or pull, will be taught in the training week. Look forward to a variety of adjustment techniques to many asanas and gain safety and competence for your lessons.

Week 4: teaching - methodology and didactics

In this training week, you will learn to use the different tools efficiently. Your tone, body language, and content from adjustment, alignment, and vinyasa will be brought to the fore for you and illuminated.

Course pre-requisites

A certain basic articulation can never hurt in yoga. Nevertheless, Rishikesh Nath Yogshala does not try to overpower their participants at the same time. Therefore, Rishikesh Nath Yogshala also starts with the beginner’s and basic level in practical lessons and work together week by week to the variations. For the yoga training, not all asanas have to be 100% dominated. A good yoga teacher does not have to stand out due to particularly strong muscle strength or exaggerated jointness but should accompany his / her students with the help of the yoga techniques above all well.

The focused topics of the training are as follows:

  • “How do I manage the asana correctly?”
  • “How can I properly help?”
  • “How do I build a fluid yoga class?”
