Program

200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training

Hatha Yoga TTC is a profound science of alignment, purification, and energy channelization towards the absolute balance of mind and body. Based on the basic principle of yoga as union Hatha yoga brings unification. It is the union of the two polarities that we find universally throughout nature.

Hatha yoga represents this duality in the human system as ‘Ha’ which is the right nostril or sun and ‘Tha’ which is the left nostril or moon. When the dual aspects of Sun and Moon are aligned and merged there is the awakening of higher consciousness in the practitioner. At the apparent level, the combination of stimulation and relaxation or the awakening and calming practices complete and balance the aspect of Ha-Tha

Hatha yoga is the mother of all yoga styles and gives a strong foundation in all the key elements of yoga-like asana, pranayama, kriya and creates a conducive environment within us for higher practices like dharana and dhyana. Bring the cohesiveness between the forces of ‘Ha-Tha’ to broaden your understanding of yoga and deepen your practice with our yoga teacher training in India and thereby bring out yoga teachers hidden in you.

Akshara Yoga School's Philosophy of Hatha Yoga Teacher Training

Akshara Yoga School keeps its teacher training program real and authentic to the core. They achieve this by adhering to the principles of yoga given in the important yogic texts. The most prominent of them are Hatha yoga Pradipika, Patanjali Yogasutra and Bhagavad Gita. “Calming the mental distractions” as suggested by Patanjali is the bottom line of yoga practice.

Hatha Yoga brings this final result in a beautiful way of na hathāt na balāt “not with brutal force”, suggesting that a path of moderation is the best way to culture the mind. The path of moderation is the skill of Abhyasa and Vairagya which prevents you to deviate to the extremes. When you train, you will also keep in mind the benchmarks of yoga practice and teaching upheld by Yoga Alliance.

You will distinguish yourself in this by meeting and exceeding the standards of quality, competence, and safety of Yoga practitioners maintained by Yoga Alliance. The purpose of all yoga is to be in tune. When you are in yoga, you achieve absolute harmony between body, mind, and existence. The 200-hour Haṭha yoga teacher training program provides a solid foundation in yoga by fine-tuning oneself towards the state of harmony to bring out the best in you.
