Ashtanga primary series, intermediate series asana practice, and teaching methodology (220 hours)

Ashtanga Vinyasa system of yoga is a dynamic form of yoga synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures. It is a process producing intense internal heat and a profuse, purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs and improves blood circulation, resulting in a light and strong body and a calm mind.

On the first week, you will have led classes which cover primary series of Ashtanga sun salutations A and B, standing poses, sitting poses, and finishing sequence. A total of 51 individual asanas will be covered.

On the second week, focus on self-practice alignments and adjustments from faculties and trainee’s will be given.

On the third week, self-practice with alignments and faculty members will come around and correct the poses to reach the perfection of poses.

On the fourth week, trainees lead the led class of Primary series and will be able to give hands on adjustments and alignment. Practical exam will be evaluated by faculty members of Mystic School.

Yogic breathing practices (Pranayama 50 hours)

You will learn the yogic breathing practice or known as pranayama. Pranayama is control of Breath. "Prana" is Breath or vital energy in the body. On subtle levels, Prana represents the Pranic energy responsible for life or life force, and “Ayama” means control. So Pranayama is "control of breath".

One can control the rhythms of Pranic energy with Pranayama and achieve healthy “body-mind”. Techniques that will be covered are Kapalabhati, Bastrika, Ujjai, Nadi shodana, Surya bhedana, Chendra bedana, Anuloma-Viloma, Shithali, Sitkari, and Bramari. During the fourth week, the trainees will lead the class and a practical exam evaluated by Mystic School's faculties.

Anatomy and physiology for yoga (40 hours)

By covering some of the basics of muscular-skeletal anatomy, we will also be looking closely at joint mechanics, where movement comes from, the nature of body tissues, and how they are affected through yoga. The sessions will include multimedia presentations, hands-on anatomy, case studies of injuries, and why difficulties with certain movements can occur.

Included lectures

  • Anatomy basics, terminology, movements, and surface anatomy
  • How tissues are affected during asana
  • The nervous system
  • The spine and intervertebral disc
  • The knee
  • The hip
  • The shoulder and elbow
  • The ankle and balance postural analysis

Meditation (50 hours)

The meditation techniques covered during this training will be intoning the sounds, third eye, Nadabrahma, Osho Kundalini, chakra sounds and breathing, Gourishankara, relaxing body and mind, conscious sleeping and dreaming, vipassana, and zazen.

The entire Eight Limbs of the Patanjali system are also sometimes referred to as Dhyana or the meditative path, although strictly speaking, only the last four limbs constitute meditation Pratyahara, Dhyana, Dharana, and Samādhi. The preceding steps are only to prepare the body and mind for meditation: meditation starts by being separate from the mind, by being a witness. That is the only way of separating self from anything.

Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in body and mind makes that difficult. Before you can hope to access your inner powerhouse of consciousness, you need to let go of your tensions. Active meditations have been scientifically designed by Osho for the contemporary man. The activity itself creates the situation in which passivity happens.

Patanjali yoga sutras (60 hours)

Yoga sutras of Patanjali succinctly outline the art and science of yoga meditation for self-realization. It is a process of systematically encountering, examining, and transcending each of the various gross and subtle levels of false identity in the mind field until the jewel of the true self comes shining through. When Patanjali codified or compiled the yoga sutras, it was not that a new system was created, but rather, the ancient practices were summarized in an extremely organized and scientific way.

You will study chapter one Samadhi Pada (concentration); chapter two Sadhana Pada (practice); chapter three Vibhuti Pada (progressing), and chapter four Kaivalya Pada (liberation).

Ayurvedic diet, ethics, and business of yoga (20 hours)

On Saturdays, guest lecturers will be invited to talk on the Ayurvedic yogic diet, ethics, cultural and traditional inheritance of yogic schools of India, and how to set up a studio to teach yoga and business of yoga.

Evaluation procedure and grading criteria

The trainees will be accessed on asana performance, teaching led class, and hands-on adjustments. At the end, you should be able to teach a pranayama class including the names of each technique and contraindications of each technique.

On the last day of teacher training course, there will be certification distribution ceremony and dinner gets together party will be organized.


The course will provide a full manual which covers all the modules of the syllabus. The pre-reading books are mailed to students and they are expected to read themselves. All the course material will be shared by Dropbox for you to keep a copy on your computer.


The practitioners are expected to have minimum one year of any style of yoga practice before they can be accepted. The style of yoga can be Sivananda, Hatha, Ashtanga, Power yoga, Bikram, Vinyasa, or any other style. All attendants must inform in advance in case of major injuries, chronic health issues, or psychological issues.

    "I spent an enjoyable Month at Nirvana Yoga Shala on my recent TTC. I thought the teaching was excellent, made even better by the amazingly diverse group of students that were there. The standard of accomadation was excellent, the rooms clean and fresh with bedding and towels changed regularly. The staff were friendly and helpful and always smiling. The area of Mysore that the school is located in is a tranquil paradise, with many local restaurants to chose from if you fancy a change from the meals served in the school. The month I spent in Nirvana has definitely taken my practise to the next level!"

    "I spent a week at Mystic School and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I did both styles, Iyengar and Ashtanga. Both teachers are friendly and very experienced with students of all levels. The classes were fairly small, around two to eight people for each session which is great because you get hands on adjustment from the teachers. The afternoon classes are fairly empty so if you're not familiar with Ashtanga yoga you can give them a go. I was the only one there for one of the classes; a private session - can't ask for more than that. Prices are a little high though at Rs. 500 per session. Accommodation is basic but clean and modern, and everything works as it should. Wi-Fi is fast and free everyday. There's a rooftop common area with a spa and hammock but I never saw anyone using this area. Gokulam is a cool place to stay too, plenty of great cafes and restaurants."

As a part of TTC we also had pranayama, meditation, anatomy, philosophy and Ayurveda classes which gave me a much deeper understanding of what yoga really is. Highly recommend this TTC. The owner Shashi was super helpful during my stay and definitely became a good friend, I'm grateful for spending Christmas with this new group of friends. :)"

    "Completed my Ashtanga TTC at Mystic School and was so pleased with the exceptional standard of everything, from the teachers to the management and the accommodation. Mystic has it all wrapped up into one and this balanced approach also comes through in the way they teach all aspects of yoga, including physical asana, pranayama, meditation, and the higher spiritual and philosophical background to it, leaving you with a well-rounded understanding of true yoga. The staffs are kind, warm and helpful and always willing to go the extra mile for their students. And the accommodation is modern, clean and tidy making you feel very comfortable and at home. I would highly recommend Mystic School and I will be returning there myself again in the near future to attend some more courses."

    "I had simply the best yoga experience at Mystic School. After arriving in Gokulam and practicing with Jai Prakash I found out they were offering a 200-hour Ashtanga teacher training in four days time and luckily I was able to enroll in the course and move into a room there on site. Jai was just what I needed in a teacher, very direct clear instructions that followed the tradition of those teachers before him. He has such a great knowledge of the primary series, which I was studying, but I’m sure that he knows a great deal about the more advanced sequences from the small glimpses we got of seeing his own practice. I completed a Vinyasa teacher training a year earlier and this course certainly enhanced my teaching skills a lot! My own personal practice had never felt better and without doubt I advanced and continued to do so in the following couple of weeks following. Accommodation at Mystic was completely comfortable, I had my own kitchen and balcony to chill out in and being able to stay with my fellow classmates built lifelong friendships I will never forget."

If you get the chance to go to Mysore, or are looking to deepen your practice at whatever level, I highly recommend Mystic School to you."

It feels so good that you have the chance to learn philosophy and yoga sutras with the very best guruji pandaji, you are going to love him, and anatomy with Dr. Robert Lambert, great chiropractor. And last but not least the very best and amazing Ashtanga teacher Surya Vasta, half Russian- half Indian, who makes it really simple to understand everything. And of course, the owner of Mystic School and the best pranayama and meditation instructor Mr. Shashi Kumar, he is the main reason you will feel free and comfortable in his school.

    "I did the 200-hour Hatha teacher training course at Mystic and strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a holistic training in yoga. The Asana training by Srinatha was exceptionally good. He made me do things I never imagined I could do. He has a deep understanding of the postures and is very creative with teaching. I could not have asked for a better teacher! The pranayama and mediation training taught by Shashi was fabulous. Being an Indian I thought I knew all about pranayama, but this is the first time I experienced the power of pranayama. We did several meditations as part of the teacher training course, both active and classical. The philosophy classes by Maharishi Pandeji and anatomy classes by Rob Lamport were superb and gave me a deeper understanding of yoga practice. Last but not the least, the accommodation is very comfortable and support staff friendly and helpful."

    "I did the Ashtanga teacher training course in September 2015. It was an amazing experience. As much of a cliché thing it is to say, it really was. If you are looking to deepen your yoga experience, that is learning asana, pranayama, and history, I think this place will create a very encouraging atmosphere and foster a chance for you to develop yourself, and look deeper within as a human being. The daily medication and pranayama classes really complimented each other. Teachers are really helpful and understanding to each students needs. Jai, the asana teacher, is both strict and kind. And also at times funny. You can really see the dedication Jai has to the practice and to sharing his knowledge to all students, body types and all skill levels. Shashi the owner is also very light hearted, funny and kind, and very knowledgeable in many meditation techniques. There was one time during a meditation session, I felt so comfortable, and stayed meditating longer, even when the session was over, and everyone had left. Shashi did not disturb me at all, and allowed me to stay in the room meditating longer, and he just did his own things. I felt a complete sense of peace and connection to something, that I couldn't describe. What ever is was, it was a very nice and amazing experience, that happened with the help the school. Just wanted to share an experience there which was very nice to me. Also one morning during asana class, my leg kind of left funny, and Jai was very understanding, encouraged me to take rest for the day, and recommended some oils for me to buy to rub on my leg. All and all, great experience. Om Shanti all."

    "I studied a 200-hour teacher training course at Mystic School last September. I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the course. I was looking to deepen my practice of Ashtanga but to also gain an insight into pranayama and meditation and course met all these requirements. The asana teacher Jai, was incredibly knowledgable and through his clear instructions, I learnt a lot, not only about the asanas but also various modifications and how to adjust others. He was also available to answer any questions at all that we had about our personal practice. Having not practiced much meditation in the past, the meditation classes gave a good introduction to various types of meditation including dynamic meditations which I personally enjoyed a lot. The school itself is very friendly and has a great rooftop jacuzzi to chill out on. I would recommend the course to anyone looking to deepen their own practice or thinking about teaching."
