Rishikul Yogshala has many years of experience in putting together a teacher training program structured to make students physically as well as mentally strong, as well as spiritually content. After the successful completion of this course, students can learn the techniques of yoga to such an extent that they can easily teach the basics of yoga, the primary series of Ashtanga and Hatha yoga.
The tradition of Sri K Pattabhi Jois - the founder of Ashtanga yoga, forms the base of this intensive class with the use of theoretical knowledge in practice.
With numerous health benefits, Hatha classes will teach students to observe the body and take a conscious approach to its limitations. The focus of the class is not related to the dynamic way of performing asanas, but to work on correct alignment in every posture.
The philosophy classes will help the students achieve their inner and spiritual growth, offering answers to many question related to yoga and life. While teaching yoga philosophy, the students are assisted to live an enlightened life in society. The key points include:
Mantra is a group of Sanskrit words that are rhythms and create sound vibrations that touch every cell in the body, the depth of the soul. In mantra classes, students will learn to come together to create an inner awareness as the teacher guides you through each mantra and its meaning.
You will learn a wide range of meditation exercises and strategies for relaxation and to clear the mind.
Prana is life force or breath. The classes awaken students’ realization of the importance of the breath both in the practice of yoga and in everyday life. When you manage to purify your bodies and minds, pranayama becomes a real pleasure and reveals the way to the spiritualistic experiences.
Anatomy classes allow the students to gain a basic knowledge about the human body and its most important systems.
It is strongly believed that the teacher training program is incomplete without proper classes of teaching methodology and techniques. In the last week of this course, you will be given the opportunity to teach others under the guidance of the teachers.
Please also note a doctor is available for free consultations but medicine will cost extra.
