Yoga teaching techniques

The yoga teaching techniques cover principles such as asana, pranayama, shatkarma, bandhas, mudras, meditation techniques, and mantra and chanting. Asana is the yoga postures, pranayama is the breathing technique, shatkarma is the cleansing technique, bandhas is the locking of energy, and mudras is the channeling of energy.

You will also learn the benefits and contraindications of the yoga asanas which are the pranic energy channels of the body, the Pancha koshas (sheath), the five elements of the universe, and the seven chakras.

Teaching methodology

The objective and aim of this module are to learn the art of teaching as well as the business and marketing aspects of yoga. This is done by cultivating good quality teachings like timing, class planning, the intonation of voice, asana sequence, and the art of adjustment. The trainer will be refining your qualities to teach in small and big groups of students.

Anatomy and physiology

The lessons will include the study of anatomy and physiology. The module will focus on general movement and human body terms as well as the systems of the body such as the respiratory system, the muscular system, the endocrine, and the nervous system.

Yoga philosophy, lifestyle, and ethics for yoga teachers

Week 2

During this week, you will be focusing on Vinyasa in terms of hour construction. Vinyasa is the movement of life. Everything is in motion and everything is in change. Everyone has already experienced how life goes up and down. There is never a phase in life that lasts forever. At some point, a time for the change of the life phase comes.

How does this particular turn? Which movement sequences make sense and which less? Your breathing and your movements are coordinated and the connections are illuminated in all facets. Rejoice in flowing hours and be open to change.

You will learn to stand in front of a group and teach. The last week will consist of the exam days, 120-minutes written exam and practical exams on how to teach a group of students.
