Routes of Yoga Yoga Teacher Training Program

Curriculum overview

This program moves through 3 major areas of development necessary to share the practice of yoga with ample knowledge, confidence and compassion.

The body

Building a strong physical practice sets a solid foundation for the training program. The main elements and qualities of a physical practice are explored while anatomy lectures pave the way for workshops, which focus in on the individual asana groups. These concepts are applied in targeted daily yoga asana classes and time is set-aside for students to get direct clarification on any issues that arise during the day's explorations.

Beyond asanas

These topics cover the more subtle concepts and techniques of yoga, such as chakras, kriyas, pranayama and meditation. Yoga history and the analysis of key philosophical texts allow students to place these techniques within the bigger context of yoga and understand their individual purposes towards its ultimate goal. The Beyond Asana modules provide a deeper viewpoint for one's own practice as well as a contemplative base from which to teach from.

The art of teaching

Teaching methodology, sequencing and teaching labs offer the tools and guided training sessions to lead multi-level classes with clarity and confidence. Ample time is allocated to teaching labs for students to gain hands-on experience in leading classes and get individual feedback and guidance from both their peers and the teaching faculty.

The topics covered in The body and Beyond asanas teach students the core principals of yoga and how to implement them into their daily lives. The goal here is for students to gain confidence in their own practice first and how it can positively impact their living and perception of the world. The Art of Teaching modules build onto this. While a comprehensive understanding of yoga and a regular practice are necessary pre-requisites for teaching, alone they do not ensure a clear and efficient transfer of information. The Art of Teaching subjects focus on developing these key attributes of a teacher along with nurturing each participant's individual teaching style.

Topics in detail

The body

In anatomy and physiology lectures the body is explored progressively through its various systems. This includes learning about the anatomy of the body in relation to movement - the different types of joints and their range of movements, the muscles responsible for executing individual actions and the nerve system which co-ordinates them.

Asana workshops build upon this. Divided into the main asana categories, each workshop covers the in depth study of the key postures - their purpose, benefits, correct alignments, variations for all levels as well as the inter-relation between the asana groups. Comprehend how individual body parts work and how they co-relate and function together in unity - an understanding that will add new dimensions to an asana practice.

Students get detailed insight into their yoga practice and start to respect their own body's potentials and limitations.

The art of teaching

Teaching methodology, sequencing and teaching labs offer the tools and hands-on experience for students to start sharing their knowledge, refine existing teaching skills or simply develop a safe and sophisticated individual practice.

In teaching methodology the various ways to guide a class through one's body, voice and movement are covered as well as workshops on how to deliver proper verbal and physical alignments and adjustments.

Sequencing covers the main principals of safe sequencing, which can be applied across various styles of yoga. A modular system that can be utilized to build safe and efficient classes suitable for all levels is introduced. Participants will also analyze sample classes and learn how to create their own sequences with specific intentions in mind.

In teaching labs students will start to teach and are given the space to nurture their individual teaching styles. They begin with instructing a fixed sequence to a small group and more elements are added progressively. Students observe each other in the role of the teacher and will both give and receive feedback. This module is also a great platform for students to test out their own sequences across a variety of different body types and practice levels before venturing out into the teaching world.

Daphne Charles
Yoga Alliance International (Yoga)
Daphne has been interested in the concept of space from an early age and initially explored this as an architect with concrete man-made structures. She then progressed to studying universal laws on a more subtle level through yoga and within the natural structures of the human body and mind. Her dedication is in the creation and recalibration towards harmony, which moves across scales and boundaries. Her further studies in biogeometry, meditation, energy and movement, geomancy, and philosophy are reflections of this same pursuit of peace within and without.
Anton Jager
Anton has been fascinated by the challenge of a yoga practice and its relaxing effect. Since then, yoga has become an essential part of his daily life, especially in balancing out the pressures he encountered during his previous assignments with multinational corporations like Google, as well as a mission with Doctors Without Borders in Africa. His teaching can be best described as non-dogmatic. He is not bound by any particular school of yoga, which allows him to tailor his classes to individual needs.
