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.
