Course syllabus

Asanas (yoga postures) and Pranayama (breathing practice)

The practitioner will learn how to get deeper to the asana practice using the correct knowledge of yoga postures. Every yoga pose has it's on importance, benefits, and science behind. So, to have this session you need not only to focus the physical practice but also to have a keen opening towards the balance of the physical and mental body. In this class, a student will not only learn how to do asanas, but also how to maintain the physical bodies while engaging in a yoga posture. This will give then a self-realization also towards precautionary moves in their advance practice so if one is the beginner or an experienced practitioner, this training will shape both of them equally according to their level.

One cannot deny the fact which is over and over explained in the various yogic texts, namely that activation of energy is actually commanding the breath. You live as much as you breath, this is a simple statement which, if you understand, it can get you actually really deep benefits. This session will blow your mind by just activating your awareness towards your breathing. Prana, a vital force in your body which makes you active and gives you enough stability. Health can be affected by the unaware, fast and materialistic world, so in this session you will also learn various traditional practices of breathing which will increase the health and control of the practitioner on a deeper level. These practices are known as pranayamas, the breathing exercise.


The Sanskrit word bandhas means to hold tighten or lock this definition precycle describe the physical action involved in the bandha practice and their effect on the pranic body. The bandhas aim to lock the prana in a particular area and redirect their purpose of spiritual awakening. Bandhas should be practices and mastered individually only then can be beneficially incorporated with mudra and pranayama practices. So, in this particular concern, the practitioners will learn the different bandhas, so that they can be able to incorporate them with their asana and pranayamas practices to awaken the psychic faculties to reach higher yogic practices. There are four locks as per the traditional explanations:- Jalandhara bandha (throat lock), Mola bandha (premium contraction / root lock), Uddiyana bandha (abdominal lock), Maha bandha (great lock ).

Vata (wind), Pitta (bile / heat), and Kapha (mucous), explained in Ayurveda also attain a balance by these practices according to both Ayurveda and Hatha yoga an imbalance in the doshas results in illness. These practices are also used before pranayama and other higher practices in order to purify the body of toxins and to ensure safe and successful progression along the spiritual. This 200-hour program is special as it gives the practitioners an overall flavor of the traditional aspects of yoga binding it with the awareness in modern times.


Shat means six and Karma means action. These practices consist of a six groups of purification methods. In a very simple way, this can be understood as internal purification by cleansing the waste that is stuck in the body and can cause several malfunctions in bodies.

In the practice of Hatha Yoga, shatkarmas are aiming to create harmony between the two measure pranic flows, ida (moon nadi), the left nostril and pingala (sun nadi), the right nostril. This harmony helps to attain physical and mental purification.

The Sanskrit word mudra is translated as “gesture” or “attitude”. Mudras can be described as psychic, emotional, devotional and aesthetic gesture or attitude. In this specific part of the program, the yoga students will learn different Mudras that are part of the yoga tradition. Students will experience mudras as attitudes of energy flow, intended to link individual pranic force with universal force. A mudra may involve the whole body in a combination of asana, pranayama, bandha and visualization techniques or it may be a simple and hand position. In Yoga Teacher Training some mudras will be introduced to the students to give them a better strength in their practices.


The Sanskrit word bandhas means to hold, to tighten or to lock. This definition describes the physical action involved in the bandha practice and their effect on the pranic body. Aim of bandhas is to lock the prana in a particular area and redirect its purpose to spiritual awakening.

Bandhas should be practiced and mastered individually and then they can be beneficially incorporated with mudra and pranayama practices.
