Immerse, experience, and elevate!

The course is designed in a way as to not only serve the physical needs but also to break the mental limitations of our students. Our yoga teacher training includes advance physical postures to less intensive and more restorative sessions. During all our yoga certification programs, we introduce students to the various styles of Hatha yoga and its contemporary practices such as Ashtanga yoga and multi-styled themed Vinyasa flow. We focus on accurate alignment of these styles, cues on commands, physical and spiritual awareness of dynamic yoga postures.

Classical yoga philosophy of Patanjali Yoga Sutras is intertwined throughout the course. Introduction to many aspects of ancient and contemporary meditation, Pranayama breathing techniques, Ayurveda and its relationship with yoga, scientific benefits of Sanskrit mantra chanting, yoga mudras, Kriya inner cleansing techniques and various other elements that make yoga a complete practice. You will leave the course truly open with a new understanding of yoga, your ability to relate to this world, and most importantly, to yourself.

The syllabus is carefully tailored to provide our students with the tools needed for teaching and deepening self-practice. Technical workshops will emphasize the more demanding and advanced postures along with a breakdown of various styles and a thorough introduction and immersion into its alignment and adjustments. These workshops are held and practiced to assess the progress being done in our everyday Asana practice session. The yogic Asanas are enjoyable and interactive with an opportunity to explore the limitations and intelligence of our physical body.

You should join this course if:

  • You are not new to yoga and possess a basic knowledge of what yoga is
  • You would like to improve your own personal practice Vinyasa or Flow yoga
  • You aspire to acquire a deep insight into your understanding of yoga, its philosophy, anatomy, pranayama, Ayurveda and yogic diet
  • You are passionate about discovering the yoga teacher residing in you inherently
  • You would like to kick start your career as a yoga teacher with success at your hand already

The 200-hour yoga teacher training offers a profound foundation in every style of Vinyasa Flow, focusing on accurate alignment of the postures of the primary series. Your training course will begin with introductory classes of the primary series, progressing through a variety of multi-style Vinyasa Flow as you proceed through the series. Technical workshops will help emphasize the crucial areas.

These workshops are essentially rewarding in terms of assessing the visual progress that you make in your everyday training session. This serves as a reminder too about the fact that yoga is fun and interactive at Himalayan Yoga Bliss. This is in total contrast to the general view that everyone does have about yoga as dealing exclusively with self-discipline and concentration during the practice. Pranayama that teaches the breathing techniques is also included as a part of the routine of the daily sessions.

Classical yoga philosophy is intertwined all through the course. Patanjalis' yoga sutras, as well as the ancient history of yoga, will also be introduced as a part of the course. This provides a clear distinction between the classic yoga and its contemporary approach along with their influences on our life. You will be encouraged to teach your peers during the second week of your training. You will gradually start by teaching each other on a one-to-one basis initially.

You will then proceed to the device and deliver your own lesson plan. The necessary tools will be provided for you to improve your teaching skills every week. This would eventually facilitate you to prepare your own yoga class which you will have the opportunity to teach in the closing week. You will be assessed based on this in the final week of the course.

Usually, students consider the last week the most memorable part of their course as they showcase all their capability and everything that they have learned throughout the course during this week. Participating and providing valuable feedback in the classes conducted by peers is the best means to learn the art of teaching. Himalayan Yoga Bliss brings together all the yoga enthusiasts from all over the world to continue the journey together.
