Orion Healing Centre's Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Course provides an in-depth exploration of the fundamentals of Vinyasa yoga and Mysore style (self-practice) in the spirit of tradition of the parampara; teacher – student transmission.

experienced teachers, build a solid foundation for your practice and acquire the skills to teach this style of dynamic yoga with precision and confidence.

Throughout your 200-hour YTTC, you will learn two distinct but complementary styles of yoga - Orion Vinyasa Flow and Yin yoga. These two styles in combination will bring balance to your practice by combining an active (Yang) and a passive (Yin) practice. Restorative Yoga is a meditative yoga practice with slow, gentle and rocking movements. You will learn how to create a
sequence that is deeply nourishing and guide students in a gentle transition from one asana (pose) to another by flowing seamlessly into a relaxing, deeply de-stressing and contemplative practice.
Through breath, the rhythm of the count and movement you will build a deep focus which manifests as a state of tranquillity in the mind. Get to know the art of vinyasa flow (Tristana), learn perfect alignment in each pose and discover the joy of teaching challenging transitions so that you feel confident enough to guide your students on their path towards a real understanding of the yoga practice on and off the mat. Experience dynamic meditation through movement and find an equilibrium between mind, body, and soul. Learn the art of intuitive touch and technical adjustment and understand how bodywork can become a vehicle for spiritual transformation.
