Holismos Yoga & Wellness likes to think that the main attraction for wanting to sign up for their course is to deepen your understanding of yoga and deepen your dedication to the embodiment of yogic principles in everyday life. In this 3-week long training, you will have the opportunity to explore and nourish all aspects of your growing yogic knowledge. You will take a deeper dive into the essence and teachings of yoga, covering all aspects that are essential for the growth and development of future generations of yoga teachers.
Holismos Yoga & Wellness believes in a yoga that is rooted in its history and traditional teachings, accessible and relevant in the present and useful to the need of each student’s individual growth and development. The teachings are based on a multidisciplinary method, incorporating the different lineages of the main teachers: Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga. Asana practice includes the exploration of the Chakras and the Chinese acupuncture meridians with an emphasis on their profound healing properties. The course includes pranayama, Restorative or Therapeutic asana, relaxation (savasana), meditation, nutrition, Yoga Philosophy and Psychology, bodywork and Chakra Balancing. Sequences taught are designed to improve both strength and flexibility as well as bring awareness to the flow of subtle energy through the body.
The course emphasises teaching from beginner to intermediary levels. It, therefore, concentrates on safety, the use of props, correct breathing and alignment, restorative asana, relaxation and meditation as well as more dynamic and strong asanas to improve strength, endurance and willpower. Fundamentally, students are encouraged to feel the energy flow in each posture to get the maximum understanding and benefit from their practice. Students need to respect their own limitations and are not expected to exercise beyond their own physical capacities. However, all students should be in general good health both physically and emotionally, in order to complete this course with the focus and dedication it requires.
These elements will facilitate a tangible and relevant exploration if you wish to deepen your practice, enhance your teaching skills, or become a teacher yourself.
This program will enable future graduates to teach with confidence. The sequences taught are designed to provide an excellent foundation for all the basic poses, to teach avoiding any injury and where necessary adapt poses and sequences for differing physical levels and needs. Emphasis is on getting prana (energy) to flow while doing the poses, to understand their therapeutic benefits and for each person to practice with enjoyment, proper breathing, correct alignment and sincerity; ultimately harmonising mind, body and energy. The spiritual notions of yoga can also be found in other philosophical/spiritual traditions such as Buddhism or Western traditions. This will be looked at more closely in the yoga philosophy classes.
This course is divided into 160 contact hours with a teacher and 40 hours of individual and/or group study.
Basic routine, postures and variations, sun salutation, relaxation, abdominal breathing; full yogic breath, two pranayama techniques, recuperative and advanced postures, meditation. The yoga practice is based on the Iyengar and Sivananda yoga methods while also drawing from other traditions and styles. Practice is a combination of flow, steady poses and recuperative postures.

Karma Yoga is a fundamental tenant of yoga and means selfless service. Students are expected to participate in some of the daily chores as part of this service. This is approximately 30 minutes per day.
Please note times may change slightly due to season and location. Students have one free day per week. Holismos Yoga & Wellness advises students not to eat any breakfast before the morning asana class but there is time for snacks during the morning break. All meals are vegetarian and prepared by the cook at the house and will include a completely vegan and gluten-free option.
