Program

Certification

Paros Yoga Shalla's teacher training course has met the stringent requirements set by Yoga Alliance Professionals. The graduates are trained to the highest standard and are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance Professionals. This course is taught by Irana Ji An who is a Yoga Alliance Professionals Senior Yoga Teacher and teaches 70% of the course.

This program is intended for yoga practitioners who wish to deepen their personal growth and learn skills to use for the rest of their life and in daily life and for yoga teachers from all schools seeking a greater understanding of the full spectrum of yoga practices like asana, pranayama, meditation, Yogasutras, and mantras.

This program is also suited for yoga practitioners interested in building a firm foundation to teach yoga to people of all ages and fitness levels and those interested in a comprehensive base for the yoga therapy program.

Program

During three weeks, when both 200 and 300 hours merge, both training’s will share the same self purification and classes and if you already know this teachings, you will deepen your knowledge but if you didn't train with Paros Yoga Shalla the first 200 hours you should get them. This teachings refer to the chakra system, sequencing, alignment, and teaching skills.

During these three weeks, those who are doing the 300 level will have other tasks than the 200 level trainees as part of the syllabus like learning and assisting in hands on alignment, karma yoga, Pratyahara practices, mudras, yoga therapeutics, pregnancy yoga, advanced pranayamas, and advanced meditation practices.

The last week, after the 200 trainees leave, you will be introduced to more advanced asanas, personal practice, teaching, business and studio management, as well as personal teaching and corporate yoga.

You will also enjoy beach classes three times per week along with a comprehensive program on achieving personal well-being through yoga and Ayurveda. This program will offer you a sound foundation in traditional yoga from Patanjali to Krishnamacharya combined with science and modern developments.

On successful completion of this course, you will have an understanding and appreciation of the principles of the science and art of yoga and an introduction to Ayurvedic principles and you will have developed a comprehensive knowledge of the theory of asanas, pranayama, and meditation.

You will also gain skill and confidence in the practice of asanas, pranayama, and meditation and understand the principles necessary to teach yoga in a safe and effective manner.

You will learn the art of sequencing and understand Vinyasa Krama, acquire the tools to enact positive changes in your own life and start on the part of providing the same guidance to others while having the opportunity to be a part of a community of people who are similarly committed to a path of personal growth and transformation at the same time.

This training is divided in two parts; during the first 11 days you will experience a process of self- purification through transformational yoga, an integral approach to physical health, emotional balance, and mental and spiritual clarity founded and created by Sri Swami Vidyanand, a renowned yoga master delving into an experience of embodiment through the Chakra system, the foundation of yoga.

This will be a personal transforming experience integrating all aspects of your being. During this period, you will also focus on alignment, anatomy, and physiology (chakras and the endocrine system) and you will discuss basic philosophy and theory of Hatha yoga as well.
