Course curriculum

Yoga philosophy

What is yoga? This is where the definition of yoga is discussed. Where and when did the practice of yoga begin? What are the principles of yoga? How it evolved, and spread its knowledge? Here, the goal is to give you a strong foundation in the fundamentals of yoga that you can implement into your daily life, and build upon throughout your journey.


As one of the eight limbs of yoga, the study of eighty plus asanas is designed to delve deeper into various categories of poses - to learn and understand their benefits, modifications, progressions, regressions, and most importantly how to properly and safely get in and out of each pose. This builds upon the foundation by creating the framework in which you can begin to create a complete practice and begin the process of self-awareness and self-care.

The art and science of sequencing

With a deeper understanding and strong core knowledge of individual poses, you will begin to work with the art and science of sequencing a practice. You will explore Hatha and Vinyasa styles of yoga practice, themed sequencing, and how to prepare a sequence that is accessible by all, complete with modifications.

Pranayama: the art of breathing

The breath is the bridge between the body and the mind. Here, you will learn the art of various breathing exercises, when to use and practice them, and what their physiological and psychological effects are.

Anatomy and physiology

In order to practice or teach a great sequence, you need to understand first the muscles, bones, fascia and joints of the body, and how it applies to the movement of the body from asana to asana. How should the bones stack and the muscles wrap around them? How do you both strengthen and protect your joints? Learn what to look for in your own body as well as the bodies of your varying students to ensure a safe and effective practice accessible to all, free from pain and injury.

Therapeutic yoga for injury and joint health

More often than not, practitioners come to yoga post injury, in search of a way to heal and stay moving. With this in mind, we delve deep into therapeutic benefits for the shoulders, hips, spine, knee, and other major joints of the body. As well as psychological issues of depression, trauma, emotional imbalance and more. Asthma, sciatica, diabetes prevention, and etc. will be covered.

Teaching methodology

Having the knowledge of yoga is mission number one - mission two is preparing you with different tools to communicate your knowledge effectively to others. Here, you will experiment with different ways of communication with others, across cultures, across language. You will work to find your voice and unique teaching style. You will practice on and observe your peers fine-tune these skills
