The 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program at our school is designed to provide a comprehensive and transformative learning experience for aspiring yoga teachers. Our course objectives are carefully crafted to ensure that students develop the necessary skills, knowledge, and confidence to embark on their yoga teaching journey. Here are the key objectives of our program.
1. Deepen the understanding of yoga: Our training program aims to expand students' knowledge and comprehension of yoga beyond the physical postures. We delve into the philosophy, history, and principles of yoga, enabling students to develop a holistic understanding of this ancient practice.
2. Cultivate a personal practice: We emphasize the importance of a dedicated personal practice. Through daily asana (posture), pranayama (breathing), and meditation sessions, students are encouraged to develop a consistent and authentic practice that forms the foundation of their teaching.
3. Develop teaching skills: Our program focuses on developing effective teaching skills. Students learn how to structure and sequence yoga classes, deliver clear and concise instructions, and create a safe and supportive environment for their future students.
4. Explore asana alignment and adjustments: We provide in-depth knowledge of asana alignment, including proper body mechanics and adjustments. Students learn how to guide students into safe and beneficial postures, preventing injuries and maximizing the benefits of each pose.
5. Understand anatomy and physiology: An essential aspect of yoga teaching is understanding the human body. Our training includes the study of anatomy and physiology relevant to yoga practice. Students gain insights into the muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems, enhancing their understanding of how yoga affects the body.
6. Learn pranayama and meditation techniques: We introduce students to various pranayama techniques (breathing exercises) and meditation practices. These ancient practices help students cultivate mindfulness, deepen their breath awareness, and develop a calm and focused mind.
7. Study yoga philosophy and ethics: Students explore the philosophy and ethical principles of yoga, including the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. They gain insights into the eight limbs of yoga, yamas (ethical guidelines), niyamas (self-disciplines), and the application of these principles in their personal and teaching lives.
8. Enhance teaching methodology: Our training equips students with effective teaching methodologies. They learn how to create lesson plans, manage class dynamics, provide modifications and variations for different students' needs, and offer skillful hands-on adjustments.
9. Practice teaching and receive feedback: Students have numerous opportunities to practice teaching throughout the course. They receive constructive feedback from experienced teachers, enabling them to refine their teaching skills and build confidence in their ability to lead yoga classes.
10. Embrace a yogic lifestyle: Our program encourages students to embrace a yogic lifestyle beyond the mat. We explore Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, and provide insights into healthy dietary practices, mindful living, and self-care routines.
11. Foster self-growth and self-discovery: Beyond teaching skills, our training program aims to facilitate personal growth and self-discovery. Students are encouraged to explore their own limitations, beliefs, and fears, enabling them to connect with their authentic self and develop a strong sense of self-awareness.
12. Build a supportive yoga community: Throughout the training, students form connections and bonds with fellow participants and teachers. We foster a supportive and inclusive community that continues to inspire and uplift long after the program is completed.
Our 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program offers a comprehensive curriculum that empowers students to become skilled and confident yoga teachers.
