15 Days 80 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course

Yoga classes in the modern time consist 80-90 % of Asana and 5-10% of Pranayama practice.

Considering our lifestyle in which we spend most of the days sitting in front of computers crouching in unhealthy postures for a long time, an energetic and strong daily Yoga class with an focus on Asanas, will just bring you back in balance. And that is what Yoga is all about: BALANCE.

Of course it is therefore only more important, that the Yoga teacher has a profound knowledge of Human Anatomy and how to apply the theory in a practical Yoga class through Alignment, cueing and correction.

Repetitive wrong alignment and pushing can result into injuries. Also lack of knowledge about the variations suitable for different bodies and the reasons some student may be stuck in a particular pose, can result into wrong guidance. This reflects into not only frustration for the student, also goes against the yoga principles of understanding each body as different and unique. For students who already suffer from injuries or diseases, a teacher equipped with a good understanding of body anatomy can be a blessing.

What you will learn in this course:

  • Anatomical and physiological theory related to Yoga Asana, Pranayama, Meditation and Relaxation
  • The Spine and Asana Practice
  • anatomical movements and how it’s applied to postures
  • understand the relation between Asanas and contraindications
  • deep understanding of muscle work
  • Cuing, Alignment and adjustment for 50+ Asana

This course is for:

  • Yoga teachers who want to deepen their knowledge about anatomy
  • Yoga teachers who want to get trained in Alignment, Cuing and Adjustments
  • Everyone interested in the Relation of Anatomy, Alignment and Yoga
  • For Yoga Alliance registered Yoga teachers who want to get certified Continuing Education Hours

The Course Venue

This Yoga course will take place in the beautiful mountain Camp “Riverside Resorts” in the town of Mcleod Ganj ( altitude 1800 m) in the Indian Himalayas.

You have the choice between staying in a tent or in a small cottage or tree house.

In the morning you will wake up to the sound of the adjacent stream and the singing of the birds. The daily Yoga classes will take place on a green camp lawn surrounded by snow capped mountains.

The camp is the ideal spot for some quietness and relaxation. We will also set up a small massage center, where you can enjoy daily Ayurveda or Tibetan massages.

The food will be cooked fresh by our own camp cooks. It will be served as an Indian vegetarian buffet.
