About the Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Style
The style of yoga postures (asanas) done in our program is a classical Hatha flow called Sahaj yoga. Its roots are in the ancient traditions of Tantra and Hatha from North India. Students are taught the correct identification and performance of the major Hatha Yoga postures, their benefits, subtle energy and hormonal and/or therapeutic impact. They are also taught how to sequence a class and how to teach Asanas at two levels of development:
At the beginning level, students learn to hold postures for specified lengths of time and master sequences and repetitions specifically designed to balance and integrate the glandular systems of the body.
At the advanced level, students learn the integration of breath retention with Asanas.
Other Aspects Taught in the Asana Program Include:
This certification program is open to people of all faiths and traditions. It is especially designed for those who want to experience a comprehensive overview of yogic teachings. For those who want to immerse themselves in the richness of the yogic lifestyle, either for beginners or to deepen an existing practice, this program offers an in-depth overview and opportunity to practice all aspects of yogic life. For those who are teaching or would like to teach, this program is designed to expand your knowledge of all aspects of yoga as well as to develop and enhance your teaching skills. And for those whose primary goal is more personal, the program offers an opportunity to deepen and enrich your own personal practice.
