50-Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in Italy

This listing has one of the 10 most popular offers available in Italy

The 50-hour yoga teacher training curriculum runs parallel to the 200-hour course, and introduces the question, "What is yoga?" This inquiry establishes the foundation for the next 8 days and 7 nights, while you explore Hatha yoga postures, as well as introduce Sanskrit terms for each asana, without the expectation that you have a high degree of proficiency in their use. Students are exposed to a foundational understanding of the human organism according to Western science and Ayurveda, to create a bridge between Eastern and Western ideologies and help students begin making connections for themselves.

Ethical guidelines

YogaMea India or Italy adopts the ancient approach to yoga to instill in each student the wisdom that yoga manifests. Teaching and learning is therefore designed in such a way that ethical practices are ingrained automatically in the students at the school.

The day begins with the daily regimen (Dincharya) and ancient code of conduct. Activities are planned according to the seasonal code of conduct (Ritucharya). The concept of behavior chemistry (Achar - rasayan) is the concept that students are expected to imbibe. Maharishi Patanjali prescribed certain rules of how a person is expected to act in society (Yama) and how personal code and conduct (Niyama) is the expected and essential behavior for individuals to follow.

YogaMea expects this behavior terminology to be understood and practiced sincerely and honestly by all students to the best extent possible. Before students register for the yoga teacher training they must be aware that this traditional teaching will differ from that of the west. There could even be a fundamental difference in the understanding of the yogic path as that which is taught in the yoga schools in the west.

Modified exercises that go by the name of yoga are frowned upon by Rishikesh Yog Peeth and YOGAMEA and so only those students must apply for the course who are willing to commit to the strict regimen of the course.

Code of conduct

Discipline is an integral part of the training program and so the course routine must be strictly observed. Disrespect to rules and regulations could result in termination of studentship with no refund of fee. Absenting oneself from the scheduled program without prior permission of the teacher or manager concerned would be construed as a gross breach of discipline. A student must announce in advance if they intend to forgo a meal so that there is no waste of food. YogaMea does not make arrangements for guests of students. Any activity that is not related to the course is not permitted. Ensure you are on time for class or you will not be permitted to enter any class once it has commenced. Before departure from the school, students are required to return all library books and any other articles belonging to the school.
