300-hour yoga teacher training course curriculum

Yoga philosophy

There exists at present a good deal of misconception with regard to the practices of yoga. Yoga philosophy is needed to get linked with tradition by a direct reference to the treatises. This class will allow students to understand, and appreciate the classical literature of yoga. The philosophy of yoga is an integrated view of life. It includes an understanding nature of existence, man and his role in investigating true self. The 300-hour philosophy is comprised of the following yogic texts:

Orientation of Patanjali's yoga sutra:

In the yoga sutras, Patanjali has provided a very scientific and practical exposition of the philosophy, and practice of yoga. One very important section of the book describes what is commonly called Ashtanga yoga, or eight limbs of yoga, which provides practical guidelines for experiencing the ultimate state of consciousness. The discourse will be a recollection of Ashtanga yoga from the 200-hour discourse, and will detail the important sutras, including a discussion of the last two chapters.

Orientation of Hatha yoga pradipika:

This is a classic text on Hatha yoga written by yogi Swatmarama. The instructions given in the text are very useful in understanding the mechanics of the body, and channelizing the energies to establish harmony. By bringing balance between sun (Ha) and moon (Tha), one can prepare for a higher possibility. Topics include:

  • Relationship of Hatha yoga and Raja yoga
  • Greatness of Hatha yoga
  • Hatha yogi lineage
  • Importance of Hatha yoga
  • Destructive and constructive aspects of yoga
  • Methods of Hatha yoga practice and yogic diet

Orientation of Gheranda samhita

Gheranda samhita and Hatha yoga pradipika are two of the older main Hatha yoga texts available in India. Dated back a few centuries, they are still studied today to understand the therapeutic aspect of Hatha yoga. The Hatha yoga practices described in Gheranda Samhita are known as Ghatayoga, which describes the human body as a clay pot, and the practices of Hatha yoga as the means by which one molds the clay, seals the cracks in the wet clay, and solidifies the pot through the fire of one's own disciplined practice. Topics include:

  • Introduction to Gheranda Samhita
  • Seven step of Ghatayoga
  • Benefits of Ghatayoga
  • Purification techniques
  • Classification of asanas and their benefits
  • A comparative study of Hatha yoga and Ghata yoga

Orientation of Upanishad

The Upanishads (defined as "to sit with one's self", or "to sit in the presence of the master") are the insights gained by the yogis. It discusses liberation through wisdom. This is the end portion of the Vedas, and the subject of yoga is presented in a conversational form. It is very easy to comprehend the discussion of yoga through the Upanishads. The quality of discrimination between real and unreal unfolds during the study of the Upanishads. Studying the Upanishads helps the practitioner to implement yoga in their daily lives. A study of the Upanishads inspires the question of, Ko Ham? Who am I?
