Learn Different style of Yoga:

 During the 200 hours of this yoga teacher training course, we will teach four different types of yoga that are founded on the principles of hatha yoga. We teach classic hatha yoga, an intense but pleasurable vinyasa flow, restorative yoga for both mental and physical exhaustion, and starting yoga for beginners. Before becoming a qualified instructor and teaching others, you will be practicing yoga on your own under the guidance of a teacher to gain a deeper understanding and experience the practice's discipline.  The four types of yoga that we teach are listed below:

  • Beginner yoga

  • Restorative yoga

  • Hatha yoga

  • Vinyasa yoga



Beginner yoga:

We offer introductory yoga to both new and experienced practitioners. Beginning with basic poses, basic yoga moves on to more energetic poses like the sun salutation. All of the active and passive exercises are basic yoga, including the sun salutation. You will learn here the importance of basic yoga as an exercise. After completing this level, you will study restorative yoga, progressing from fundamental poses to higher practice poses based on your body's needs. Yoga is taught to you based on your weight, age, and physical condition. You will be learning how to teach yoga to beginners at the same time.


Restorative Yoga:

Restorative yoga is a soothing mindfulness yoga practice for beginners. It is typically practiced using yoga props such as a Kasun, belt, block, bolster, pillow, and chair.

Restorative yoga is the starting point of yoga practice and instruction in the 200hr YTT. For example, if you practice ashtanga vinyasa yoga entire sequence in 200 hours, you will undoubtedly get hurt since your body is not prepared for advanced practice. It is essential to understand that every instructor should teach yoga according to different body types and health conditions. In 200hr YTTC first learn some begging yoga, restorative yoga , hatha yoga and gradually go ahead for deeper understanding and practice.


Hatha Yoga:

Hatha yoga is the foundation of yoga and is suitable for all skill levels and body types. Hatha yoga is also known as the physical practice of yoga. "The slow pace and simple breathing exercises make it an excellent place to learn basic, intermediate, advance poses and become comfortable on the mat.

" Hatha yoga is more likely to be used, Chanting, meditation, breathing, and mild to rigorous yoga practice were all part of spiritual yoga. Our students will first practice hatha yoga, and then they will learn how to teach hatha yoga for different body type.

Hatha yoga is essential in the 200-hour program since it is the foundation of yoga. It is impossible to grasp other styles of yoga without first understanding the roots of hatha, because many styles of yoga evolved from hatha yoga. Our learner will have a thorough understanding of hatha asana sequence practice and its secret ancient philosophy.


Vinyasa Yoga:

Yoga vinyasa originated with ashtanga vinyasa, which we teach in 300 and 500-hour YTT. It's important to prepare your body for hard advanced ashtanga poses by practicing vinyasa yoga, commonly referred to as flow yoga. Vinyasa yoga is a body-dancing style that emphasizes power postures, proper breathing, as well as some stretching and relaxation. Due to the continuous flow sequence, vinyasa flow promotes flexibility without any strain, increases stamina and helps to burn excess body fat. Vinyasa yoga is best suited to loosen up the weight and for people with high levels of vigor. Learn from our school how to create a vinyasa sequence quickly since once you comprehend hatha, it is extremely simple to do Vinyasa flow.


Yoga Philosophy : 

In yoga philosophy, you will study the secrets of ancient yoga from our expert in depth. Yoga philosophy is an interesting topic for fully understanding the term yoga. Our instructor will discuss traditional yoga philosophy as well as current scientific research in yoga, as well as the practice and knowledge of spirituality. Here at our school, we make sure you thoroughly understand the yoga philosophy and educate you how to teach or explain others like a professional teacher. Yoga philosophy is like an ocean, and we've chosen the most intriguing and useful topic. In yoga philosophy, you will study all the below topics: 

  • What is yoga The main object of yoga

  • Definition of yoga

  • History of yoga

  • Defination of hatha yoga

  • Yoga sutra

  • Eight limbs of yoga

  • Nadi(Ida, Pingala, Susumna)


Seven Main Chakras : 

Chakra are Sanskrit words that imply "wheels." It is thought that our bodies contain several chakras, which are essential to the functioning of our existence. A yogi may gather energy from numerous levels of vibrations, including color, that are used in various sections of the body. Our bodies have large energy centers that are linked to key organs or glands that regulate other bodily components. Each of these major energy centers is known as a chakra. Here you will discover about the seven major chakras, as well as its details such as chakra Mantra, chakra Petals, chakra Element, chakra Color Association, chakra Location, chakra for Balance, Chakra Stimulants, The Chakras of Matter, The Chakras of Spirit, and The Connection Between Matter and Spirit as well chakra Imbalances for various diseases.

Mudras : 

Mudra are sometimes referred to as hand postures. Each component of the hand triggers a reflex reaction in a different section of the brain.  Mudra is a kind of self-expression that involves the use of hands, the head (eyes, ears, tongue, lips, etc.), posture, lock, and perineal mudras. Thousands of mudras are utilized in tantric rituals. In ancient times, mudra was performed for classis dance, yoga mudra, and many more.  Here with us, you will learn about hand mudra and five components mudra, importance of mudra and its science. You will learn how to apply mudra during meditation, pranayama, bandha, asana, and other practices.



Bandha :

The Sanskrit word bandha means to hold, constrict, tighten, or lock, and it precisely defines the physical motion required to accomplish these activities. A bandha is a yoga lock or bind that is used to guide and regulate the flow of prana (life force energy) to certain portions of the body. There are three primary bandhas in the body, as well as a fourth that connects them all: 1. jalandhara bandha, 2. uddiyana bandha, 3. moola bandha, and 4. maha bandha (maha bandha is the advanced practice and we do it in 300hr course). They cleanse, eliminate impurities, harmonize and balance the self. Bandhas momentarily stop the flow of blood, thus when they are removed, there is an increase in the flow of new blood. You will be learning 3 bandhas in details.



Mantra, sometimes referred to as devotion, is not a religion in the same way as water, air, fire, sun, and earth are not religious. Prayers and yoga are not religious. Since yoga and bhakti are closely related, we chant to benefit ourselves, others, and the environment. We chant every morning to begin the day in serenity, positive thinking, and with a heart full of love. With a detailed translation of the mantra, our teacher also teaches how to chant in Sanskrit. The Sanskrit term mantra literally translates to "(to set free from the mind)" or "to control the mind." Mantras are sound-based physical vibrations that have stimulating impacts on both our physical and subtle bodies. Here, you'll discover different mantra (chanting) and how to perform them more effectively.


Meditation & It's Practice :

 Meditation is a self-practice that is done with a teacher's instruction. Here, you will discover the philosophy of meditation, as well as how to teach it to others for a variety of ailments, issues, or stress management. The greatest journey a person can do is meditation. It is an expedition into the unknown. Meditation therefore does not exclude action. You don't have to run away from life. It only imparts a new way of living to you. The body and mind must be cleansed by the practice of yoga, including sat-karma, bandha, asana, mudra, chakra, pranayama, and many more, in order to meditate. Deeper relaxation is the result. Meditation brings down blood pressure and heart rate. It slows down breathing reawaken your spirituality helps in awakening and bodily healing.


The Science of Ancient Cleansing : 

Sat karma kriyas: The six cleaning acts, or sat karma kriyas, are an essential part of yoga. Additionally, it is claimed that being a yogi requires achieving success in sat karma. After the success of the fundamental practice, we offer an advance practice in the 300- and 500-hour courses. The 200-hour course teaches the basic yogic cleaning process.

Since the words "sat" and "karma" both imply "action," the phrase "sat karma" refers to six actions that are part of the cleaning process used to purify the body. This process not only involves physical purification but also inner purification. Yoga involves both physical practice and internal purification. This ancient yogic practice balances the kappa, pitta, vatta, and other energies. Always study and practice these methods under the guidance of a qualified instructor.




The Science of Breathing- Pranayama

 The most important aspect of yoga is pranayama because without breath, the body cannot survive. Understanding and managing the pranic process in the body are achieved through the practice of pranayama. Pranayama is typically understood to be the regulated inhaling, exhalation, and retention practice. Pranayama raises consciousness by suppressing or regulating mental distractions. Clears the mind and makes space for consciousness to flow freely. If done properly, eradicate all illnesses. Eliminate all obstructions that might prevent the prana from circulating properly. By clearing obstructions from the pranayama kosha and allowing for enhanced prana absorption and retention, pranayama- breathing exercises help to create a healthy body. Here you will experience different style of pranayama practice and you will be learning how to teach pranayama safely.


Importance of Yogic Balance Diets 

Everything we consume is spiritual food. Food, according to yogis, is the source of prana (life energy), which supports our body and gives us vitality and health. As a result, the foods we select to eat represent our level of conscious growth. Yoga advocates a clean (ethical) vegetarian diet, which promotes the development of sattva. As a result, you will learn about sattvic food, ayurvedic food, yogic food, the effects of bad eating habits, and the advantages of healthy eating habits. Foods to Eat When Following a Yogic Diet, Foods to Avoid or Reduce When Following a Yogic Diet, ideal diet for yogic sadhana, Nutrients and their purpose in the body. Here with us you will not only learn you will be living yogic life-style by having a yogic food, fasting and doing silent meditation once a week.


The Therapeutic Yoga

These days, people use yoga not only for physical exercise, but also for health, proper breathing and meditation for mindfulness, and we will discuss the value of yoga therapy here. Many common ailments, such as back pain, joint discomfort, and office syndrome, can be controlled via proper yoga practice. According to the Hatha Pradipika, Yoga is not historically intended for treatment. Essentially, treatment is intended for sadhakas who do asanas and pranayama carelessly and obstinately, and who have bad nutrition and an imbalanced lifestyle. Yoga practice is better for prevention than treatment. Yoga is for improving health and illness prevention, but it cannot treat completely some major diseases which are too late. But definitely yoga therapy can help before getting worst from the disease.  There is no doubt Yoga can heal physically, mentally and spiritually fully. Learn every common disease Cause, Symptom and Yogic treatment.



Yoga Anatomy & Physiology

Human anatomy and physiology are a vast subject, as is the art of yoga. Nevertheless, combining knowledge from both fields is extremely beneficial for the yoga practitioner. The Study of the Anatomy and Physiology of Yoga can improve incorrect practice or unsafe technique and a basic understanding of their physical body. A practitioner who learns yoga without an understanding of anatomy and physiology cannot understanding their own body and can cause injury. It is not necessary to memorize hundreds of muscles and bones to experience the benefits of applying anatomy of yoga. What is necessary is the functional understanding of a manageable number of key anatomic structures in their settings as they relate to yoga. Knowledge of these structures can be applied immediately to optimize your practice, break through blockages and avoid injury, medical problems or new problems.

Warm-up (micro exercise) –

The warm-up exercise is the preparatory activity before class. Every practitioner should warm up before performing yoga postures. It is also important for every instructor to teach exercise before yoga class so that there is no injury, stress, or soreness after the yoga practice. According to yogic texts, workout routines are essential before practicing posture. Without exercise, the muscles lose their value, the bones weaken, the function to absorb oxygen weakens, physical stress may arise, there is no strength and stamina in the body, and there is a more  risk of physical harm. Warm-up exercises work to loosen up tight muscles, boost heart rate, and promote appropriate blood flow. Start your practice from exercise.

Surya Namaskar -Sun Salutation

These sequences serve as up exercises, for demanding yoga practices. Sun salutation is a practice routine that is done 4, 12, and 24 times gradually. Before doing other posture, sun salutation should be performed —Sun Salutation also known as Surya namaskar in Sanskrit.  It helps stretch, massage, and tone all of the body's internal organs, as well as freeing up joints, muscles, and weight. Surya namaskar involves asana, pranayama, mantra, and meditation practices, making it a comprehensive sadhana (spiritual practice).

Medical information

For those who have an injury, hernia, have had an operation, a miscarriage or have any special condition, you can only do yoga depending on the type of injury or condition. Please consult with your doctor if this program is suitable for you. But your body knows best, please respect it. Don’t force yourself, do not strain. Give your body the time to fully recuperate. Sometimes yoga is being misinterpreted as being a very soft form of movement, fully focused on relaxation. This counts for some yoga forms but not for all! If in doubt, always ask your yoga teacher before the start if it is suitable for you and discuss your options if you have any issues. Always inform your teacher about any injury!
