Syllabus

Personal asana practice

The program offers a strong foundation in traditional Hatha, Ashtanga, and Vinyasa flow yoga, concentrating on the correct alignments of the postures. In the class, you will practice traditional Hatha yoga in the morning time and take part at Ashtanga led classes in the afternoon.

Your teacher will guide you through the full primary series with modifications. In the practice, your teacher will constantly check your alignments, help you to deepen the postures and, if appropriate, adjust you in the postures.

Pranayama (breathing techniques)

From your first day, you will be encouraged to bring awareness to your breath. In traditional Hatha yoga and the other yoga styles, you will study the breath that initiates the movement from posture to posture. It is impossible to progress through the Ashtanga primary series without familiarity of the rhythm of your own breath, improving your focus. You will learn 7 pranayama techniques that will help you to lengthen your breath, increase your lung capacity and strengthen the nervous system.

This is an important aspect of yoga that is often overlooked as physical practice (asanas) takes precedence. Pranayama is a great way to alleviate stress and tension, something that is often endured in modern society. Pranayama practice will allow you to build mental and emotional strength to help you maintain a healthy sense of well-being, not just during the teacher training course, but in your everyday daily life. Tutorials will explain the theory accompanying these breathing techniques enabling you to practice effectively during guided classes.

Kriyas (cleansing) and mudras (energy seals)

Cleansing will clear the system and allow the breath to flow freely. You will learn 6 cleansing techniques on your course. Mudras will allow you to seal energy within the body. Again, tutorials will support the practice of both of these.

Anatomy of alignment classes

These classes will allow you to gain a deeper insight into the different yoga postures by looking in detail at the body mechanics of each and every posture. A clear understanding of the skeletal and muscular systems in a posture, in terms of its anatomical focus, is vital for teaching and practicing postures. The aim is that you build on prior knowledge of anatomy whatever level that may be and leave with a greater awareness of your own body and those of your future students.

During these classes, you will also focus on how to modify the different postures depending on the practice of your students. In addition, this class provides the opportunity for the instructors to really assist you with your individual practice on a personal level.

Teaching methodology

You will start to teach your peers during the third week of your training. You will instruct each other on a one-to-one basis and progress to devising and delivering your own lesson plan. Each week, the organizer will provide tools for you to develop your teaching skills, facilitating you to build your own yoga class that you will teach during the final week. Teaching methodology sessions include:

  • Opening a class
  • Sequencing
  • Instructions
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Corrections and adjustments
  • Modifications

The former students always find this a particularly memorable experience as the majority will teach for the first time. Participating in each other’s classes and providing constructive feedback for your peers is a great way to learn and supports our ethos that learning is sharing.

Hatha yoga

Most forms of yoga in the west can be classified as Hatha yoga. Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Power yoga classes are all Hatha yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

Yoga philopsophy

Classical yoga philosophy is interwoven throughout the program and you will be introduced to Patanjali’s yoga sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, and Hathapradipika. This class allows you to make your own comparisons of classical and contemporary yoga and pose the question, ‘what is yoga?’ These sessions are a great time for philosophical debate and indeed provided a welcome insight into the views of your fellow students.

Each yoga class will have an intention with a spiritual message that will allow you to understand how we can incorporate philosophy into practice. Hari will deliver a talk on yoga in Bhagavad Gita, a beloved Indian text from which many lessons can be learned.
