You will further get your individual mentorship to support you in creating your unique teaching style and program and start your business online or offline. This training is for you if you want to:
The asana (body posture) practice is divided into morning and evening sessions. Whereas the morning sessions are more dynamic with pranayama practice for 15 to 30 minutes at the end or beginning of the class, the afternoon classes are traditional Hatha yoga classes accompanied with elements of Iyengar, focusing on different sequences, proper alignment, and adjustment. Get step-by-step guidance and proper instructions so that you will move from basic to advanced positions smoothly and naturally and know how to use your breath in the right way to allow even more depth and flexibility in each asana.
In this session, you will be thought about the proper and technically correct position in each asana. Focus is on how to come into the asana in the correct way, how to hold it, how to come out and how to use your breath in the proper way. Also how to correct properly with intelligent hands-on and language adjustment as a teacher for beginner, intermediate, and advanced postures. Further, you will learn how to use blocks and belts according to Iyengar yoga to assure a stable and correct position, allow deep relaxation, and support to come into some variations safely.
Finally, you will also be thought in Sanskrit terminology, as well as benefits and contraindications of each asana. Your adjustment and alignment classes are both theoretical and practical. They assure you that you can practice what they teach immediately to deepen your understanding and experience. To make you understand how the asanas properly work is one of their important goals, so be ready for transformative practice.
Breathing exercises are the heart of yoga and are meant to cleanse and purify body and mind and especially your energy channels nadis since the breath is the bridge between your body and mind. You will learn how to be aware of and control your breath and further how to control your mind in using your breath and enhance your life energy prana. Breathing exercises will be practiced especially during the Ashtanga practice classes every day and the Sivananda yoga classes before or after the asana practice.
Also, you will be properly guided on how to use your breath while practicing the asana to release tension, go deeper into the asana, and activate the energy centers, chakras. You will learn about the health benefits if you use your breath properly. They will teach you the following pranayama techniques theoretically and practically so that you can fully understand and experience its benefits and purpose:
The practice of meditation was actually the goal of the ancient purpose of the asana practice so that the body and mind are well prepared and in a good shape to sit still, for hours, to get deeply in touch with the inner self, and to move into higher consciousness. Therefore, it is a very important practice to achieve a calm and steady mind, enforce your concentration, and finally become more peaceful and joyful. You will practice different types of meditation from silent to guided and experience its effects on your body and mind. The meditation class will be the first class every early morning.
Mantras will be chanted at the beginning and end of each yoga practice class. A few times you will chant for 30 minutes at the beginning or end of the asana practice to deepen the experience. The recitation of sacred Sanskrit syllables not only purifies your whole system it also creates a vibration within your subtle energy system that connects you with higher consciousness. You will especially be guided in how to use the mantras to purify and balance your energy centers, chakras. The following mantras will be chanted:
In your yogic philosophy and science classes, you will learn about mudras (finger postures) and bandhas (energy locks) to enhance your life energy prana, stimulate your energy centers chakras, and control your body energy and your mind. Further, you will get practical experience in the asana classes.
Satkarma Kriya is one of the six yogic cleansing techniques (kriyas) referred to as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. In order to keep the body strong and healthy, the early yogis created special techniques to cleanse, detox, and purify the body so that life energy prana can flow undisturbed. Yet not only it is good for health also pranayama and meditation can be practiced with more ease and focus since the body is clean and strong. Satkarma Kriya will be properly guided by one of their teachers and all the required tools will be provided. Especially, you will focus on the following three techniques:
Beyond your mat, yoga is about life itself, that is why it is often called as “art of living”. They would like to add it is an art of living with life. The goal of their yogic philosophy and science classes is to provide you the deep wisdom and ancient knowledge in an understandable way so that you know about the true meaning and how to implement it in your own life. Yogic philosophy and science origins in ancient wisdom and concepts yet have immense value for your modern-day life to raise your awareness towards a conscious and mindful way of living.
That means in your philosophy and science class, you will not only learn about (and be thought in a way so that you can understand what yoga is about) this ancient and noble wisdom from sacred scriptures like the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali yet you will also understand what value, information, and knowledge they can give you for your everyday life.
Ayurveda is the science of life itself, providing knowledge about how to lead an everyday life to keep your whole system in good shape and condition. Its concepts are based on three energy conditions, whereas the most efficient energy is called sattvic. The goal is to create and maintain a sattvic energy level, which means clean, pure, balanced energy in all areas of your life, including your nutrition, body movement, and everyday routine. In this class, you will learn about the basic concepts and most important practices, so that you will be able to also implement them in your everyday life.
Special focus will be on healthy and balanced nutrition according to Ayurveda and the importance and positive effects of plant-based nutrition. It is important for them that you understand how your system works and you know which food, way of living, asana practice is especially best for your unique constitution. And that you realize yoga and Ayurveda can not be separated.
Yogic anatomy and physiology includes the teaching on the functions of your physical body as well as your energy body system. Knowing about how your physical body works supports understanding the proper asanas adjustment and its influence on your body and mind.
Knowing about what your energy body system is and how it works to let you understand the interconnection of your body and mind with your energy centers chakras and channels nadis, why your breath is influencing the wellbeing of your body and mind, and finally, let you realize how your whole systems work to use it as the best efficient way and to live balanced and harmonious.
Practicing is one thing, teaching is one more thing. That is why they scheduled your program to support you from the very beginning to train your confidence and discover and create your teaching skills alongside them so that you together can build your unique yet profound and authentic teaching style.
They designed this class in theoretical and practical sessions to give you the proper knowledge and understanding and that you at the same time can start to teach and implement the theory into your practice, get feedback, and exchange with your teachers and co-students to improve and make the most out of your training. Their goal is to provide you with all knowledge, tools, and useful strategies to combine them with your unique way of being and thinking and create your unique teaching style and let your essence shine.
