Intensive Yoga Teacher Training Nepal

Learn the depths of classical Tantra yoga in a traditional ashram setting. At the ashram, you will be taught to promote experiential learning, and while you will receive comprehensive teaching in the theoretical and philosophical aspects of yoga, you will feel that it is imperative for you to experience yoga in order to teach and take your own practice to the next level. Yoga is much more than asana - it is a lifestyle, and at Shanti Yoga Ashram they want you to prepare students who can live yoga, not just do yoga.

Shanti Yoga is confident that the experience will not only prepare you to teach yoga but give you all the tools you need to maintain a harmonious balance in your daily life.

Course curriculum

You will begin with the first step in Hatha Yoga called Shatkarma - internal yogic cleansing to prepare your bodies and minds for the yoga practice to follow, so that when prana shakti starts to flow it will be moving through clear open channels.

  • Beginner asanas: how to teach yoga on a therapeutic level and for beginners
  • Pranayama: how to perform and teach various techniques
  • Yoga Nidra (Subconscious reprogramming) and the Tantric practice of Nyasa
  • Intermediate or advanced asanas: leading up to the Kriya yoga level where asana becomes converted into mudra, full energetic expression
  • Mantras and chakra awareness: incorporated into asana and meditation practices
