Hatha Yoga World is proud to offer the art of adjustment, an in-depth, adjustment-centered 300-hour Hatha yoga teacher training course fully certified by Yoga Alliance, USA. Hatha Yoga World have talked to hundreds of yoga students about what they did and did not like in their training courses, and have designed their program with the students' feedback in mind.

Hatha Yoga World focus on the integration of yoga in one's everyday life (yoga as lifestyle). Students live and study in a community with their peers and teachers, who approach yoga as a complete system (following Patanjalis eight limbs) and explore the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits through classes and daily practice.

Why the emphasis on adjustment training?

The number one complaint heard from recent graduates of other TTCs is the lack of adjustment training. Head teacher, Pankaj Seth, has crafted his own unique technique for hands-on adjustments after 16 years of teaching experience. Pankaj has competed in many yoga championships and has received the championship title from the Varanasi competitions in 2003 and 2006.

What will you learn?

Hatha Yoga World want their students to graduate as teachers who are highly confident giving instructions, performing demonstrations, and making hands-on adjustments. As such, the program focuses on providing you with opportunities to develop your skills as both teacher and student. You will attend lectures on yoga philosophy, anatomy and physiology.

In their A&P classes, they apply their teaching of body mechanics onto real bodies, allowing you to see the differences between individuals with different musculoskeletal structures. Each day, you will have an hour devoted toward gaining practical experience making adjustments, either as corrections or to send a student deeper into a pose.

Hatha yoga

Hatha yoga is an ancient Indian system that combines physical postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation with various cleansing practices. The word Hatha, which can be broken into Ha (sun) and Tha (moon), represents the balance between opposing forces or the balance between mind-body-spirit. Hatha yoga concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Most yoga in the West is Hatha-based.

Within each sequence (series of poses), we teach the foundations for each posture and offer modifications to lessen or heighten the difficulty of the pose. We offer a deep understanding of postural alignment and safe methods for assisting and adjusting.

Patanjalis yoga Sutras

Known as the father of yoga, Patanjali wrote his famous collection of aphorisms, known collectively as the yoga Sutras, roughly 2600 years ago. The 196 sutras (verses) are divided into four chapters. The first chapter describes yoga and the nature and means to achieve Samadhi. In the second chapter, Patanjali describes Kriya yoga and Ashtanga yoga (8 limbs). The third chapter focuses on siddhis, or supernatural powers. The final chapter describes the process of liberation and the reality of the transcended ego.

Patanjali laid a detailed path to enlightenment, known as the eight-limbed path or Ashtanga yoga. Due to the popularity of the Astanga style (Mysore) of Hatha yoga, this journey may also be referred to as Raja yoga.

Brief description of the eight limbs of yoga

The first limb: the five Yamas (social and worldly interactions)

  • Ahimsa (non-violence) - compassion for all living things
  • Satya (truthfulness)
  • Asteya (non-stealing)
  • Brahmacharya (sense and sexual control)
  • Aparigraha (non-possessiveness) - neutralizing the desire to acquire and hoard wealth

The second limb: the five Niyamas (personal observations)

  • Saucha (purity or cleanliness)
  • Santosa (contentment)
  • Tapas (disciplined use of your energy)
  • Svadhyaya (self study or study of sacred texts)
  • Isvara Prandidhana (surrender to the divine)

The third limb: asana (physical postures)

The fourth limb: pranayama (breathing to integrate body and mind)

The fifth limb: Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses)

The sixth limb: Dharana (concentration)

The seventh limb: Dhyana (meditation)

The eighth limb: Samadhi (blissful awareness)

Retreat location

Dharamsala is a city in the upper reaches of the Kangra Valley and is surrounded by dense coniferous forest consisting mainly of stately Deodars. The suburbs include McLeodGanj, Bhagsunath, Dharamkot, Naddi, ForsythGanj, Kotwali bazaar (the main market), Kaccheri Adda Dari, Ramnagar, Sidhpur and Sidhbari.

Dharamshala is the center of the Tibetan exile world in India. Following the 1959 Tibetan uprising there was an influx of Tibetan refugees who followed the 14th Dalai Lama. His presence and the Tibetan population has made Dharamshala a popular destination for Indian and foreign tourists, including students studying Tibet. One of the main attractions of Dharamshala is Triund hill. A jewel of Dharamshala, Triund is a one-day trek at the upper reaches of McLeodGanj, about nine kilometers from McLeodGanj.
