How the training works

The online version of MYTTC will run over a 4 week time period with an extra week for study and integration. If you are working or have a busy personal life, you can spread the course out over two or three months. You must attend one full round of live sessions which includes meditation initiations, the silent retreat, and all live practicums. To take this option, however, you should communicate this in advance with Samyama Mindfulness Meditation Center.

The lecture and practice videos will be released day by day as they would’ve been taught in person. This way you can all still do it together, wherever you are.

It includes over 90 lectures and practices, a 3-day silent meditation retreat, and live online support to help you evolve your practice and your life.

Additionally, there will be live sessions (minimum 2 times) throughout the week for you personally via video calls and weekly sharing circles, and Q&A for the whole group. Plus, there will be a virtual space of the designated 200-hour private WhatsApp group to answer any questions that may come up during the day as well as to interact and exchange with other students. Each live Q&A session will be approximately 90 minutes long.

For those practitioners who wish to move through the training over the standard 28 day period, or the length of the in-person training, the selected lectures and practice videos will be released daily over the 28 days beginning with a Welcome Day. You have an additional week after the recorded material finishes to complete the course and take the final exam. Course handouts are available for you to download and keep as your manual. The course recordings will be available until you complete the final exam.

Timing of sessions or daily schedule (GMT+8)

Below is the suggested daily flow of activities for 6 days of the week, however, you will find your own routine best suited to you. This will change depending on your time zone as you will want to adjust your schedule around the live sessions.

  • Morning meditation and asana practice (for those in the Americas the live sessions often occur first thing in the morning)
  • Breakfast break
  • Morning lectures
  • Lunch break and rest or catch up on lectures/reading
  • Afternoon lectures and meditation (for those in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East the live sessions often occur in the afternoon)
  • Afternoon/evening asana practice
  • Dinner break and rest or catch up on lectures/reading (for those in Asia/Pacific, the live sessions often occur in the evenings)

Fixed hours of the synced meditation sessions to be announced to the signed-up participants according to the geographical distribution. All times are based on WITA (Central Indonesian Time)/GMT+8.

Curriculum/Course information

Meditation initiations

Each week you will be taken into the depths of a different and potent meditation technique by Samyama's empowered teachers. Daily practice of each technique will help you discover which form of meditation works best for you, and give you the ability to guide your future students. Perhaps the most meaningful of these initiations is a 3-day silent meditation retreat based on non-dual practices and the revelation of the spiritual heart.

Styles of yoga

You will be trained in major, classical poses of Hatha yoga obtaining a thorough understanding of their physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual effects. Additionally, MYTTC focuses on Vinyasa, Restorative, and Yin practices of yoga with a great emphasis on tantra yoga addressing the subtle energetic and spiritual effects of the practice.

Anatomy and physiology

The school wants you to have a good understanding of the anatomy and physiology of your bodies without getting overwhelmed by medical words alone. Their expert teachers will create immersions into anatomy, physiology, and Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, for you to explore yoga's effects and functioning in our being from a scientific perspective.

Kriya techniques

You will teach and practice together selected techniques from the shat karma kriya system. This will assist your body in the purification processes that occur during intensive yoga and meditation practice. These techniques are gems that you will want to share with your students.

Teaching and professional skills

Samyama loves sharing their passion for this path. They want you to develop all of the required teaching skills; from making adjustments/corrections to giving effective discourses to tuning into the needs of the individual and the group. They would also like to broaden your vision on how to make teaching yoga and meditation your profession.

Philosophy and history

Besides the core texts of yoga philosophy such as the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita, they will introduce tantric texts such as the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, teachings from Advaita Vedanta, and more. There are so many beautiful and accessible texts that inform and inspire our meditation practice.

They seek a balance of practice, theory, and teaching formation in their program. Their meditation and yoga teacher training course aims to help you build a solid self-practice, gives you a strong understanding of the metaphysics of yoga/meditation, and provides you with the skills to deliver these teachings.
