Curriculum overview

This program moves through 3 major areas of development necessary to share the practice of yoga with ample knowledge, confidence and compassion.

The body

Building a strong physical practice sets a solid foundation for the training program. The main elements and qualities of a physical practice are explored while anatomy lectures pave the way for workshops, which focus in on the individual asana groups. These concepts are applied in targeted daily yoga asana classes and time is set-aside for students to get direct clarification on any issues that arise during the day's explorations.

Beyond asanas

These topics cover the more subtle concepts and techniques of yoga, such as chakras, kriyas, pranayama and meditation. Yoga history and the analysis of key philosophical texts allow students to place these techniques within the bigger context of yoga and understand their individual purposes towards its ultimate goal. The Beyond Asana modules provide a deeper viewpoint for one's own practice as well as a contemplative base from which to teach from.

The art of teaching

Teaching methodology, sequencing and teaching labs offer the tools and guided training sessions to lead multi-level classes with clarity and confidence. Ample time is allocated to teaching labs for students to gain hands-on experience in leading classes and get individual feedback and guidance from both their peers and the teaching faculty.

The topics covered in The body and Beyond asanas teach students the core principals of yoga and how to implement them into their daily lives. The goal here is for students to gain confidence in their own practice first and how it can positively impact their living and perception of the world. The Art of Teaching modules build onto this. While a comprehensive understanding of yoga and a regular practice are necessary pre-requisites for teaching, alone they do not ensure a clear and efficient transfer of information. The Art of Teaching subjects focus on developing these key attributes of a teacher along with nurturing each participant's individual teaching style.

Daily schedule

Routes of Yogas 200-hour yoga teacher training courses take place over 23 days.

This intensive course is divided into 4 parts with 5 full course days and 1 rest day in each segment. Timings for a typical course day is listed below. Variations will occur to this general schedule depending on a given day's topics and in order to fully utilize the dynamics within individual teacher training programs and student groups.

Topics in detail

The body

In anatomy and physiology lectures the body is explored progressively through its various systems. This includes learning about the anatomy of the body in relation to movement - the different types of joints and their range of movements, the muscles responsible for executing individual actions and the nerve system which co-ordinates them.

Asana workshops build upon this. Divided into the main asana categories, each workshop covers the in depth study of the key postures - their purpose, benefits, correct alignments, variations for all levels as well as the inter-relation between the asana groups. Comprehend how individual body parts work and how they co-relate and function together in unity - an understanding that will add new dimensions to an asana practice.

Students get detailed insight into their yoga practice and start to respect their own body's potentials and limitations.

The art of teaching

Teaching methodology, sequencing and teaching labs offer the tools and hands-on experience for students to start sharing their knowledge, refine existing teaching skills or simply develop a safe and sophisticated individual practice.

In teaching methodology the various ways to guide a class through one's body, voice and movement are covered as well as workshops on how to deliver proper verbal and physical alignments and adjustments.

Sequencing covers the main principals of safe sequencing, which can be applied across various styles of yoga. A modular system that can be utilized to build safe and efficient classes suitable for all levels is introduced. Participants will also analyze sample classes and learn how to create their own sequences with specific intentions in mind.

In teaching labs students will start to teach and are given the space to nurture their individual teaching styles. They begin with instructing a fixed sequence to a small group and more elements are added progressively. Students observe each other in the role of the teacher and will both give and receive feedback. This module is also a great platform for students to test out their own sequences across a variety of different body types and practice levels before venturing out into the teaching world.

  • Daphne Charles

    Daphne has been interested in the concept of space from an early age and initially explored this as an architect with concrete man-made structures. She has since then evolved into exploring this on a more subtle level through yoga and within the natural structures of the human body and mind. She seeks to create an atmosphere of awareness, grace and support in her yoga classes as she guides her students

  • Anton Jager

    Anton has been fascinated by the challenge of a yoga practice and its relaxing effect. Since then, yoga has become an essential part of his daily life, especially in balancing out the pressures he encountered during his previous assignments with multinational corporations like Google, as well as a mission with Doctors Without Borders in Africa. His teaching can be best described as non-dogmatic. He is not bound by any particular school of yoga, which allows him to tailor his classes to individual needs.

    "Dear Anton, what can I say, it has been an incredible four weeks and I am really glad that I survived the training, having sweat, tears, and blood, literally. Thank you for the patient teaching, especially on the yoga philosophy. It really helped me understand better than reading yoga sutras by myself from a book. I am so glad to make the decision to go through my yoga teacher training with the two of you."

    "If there is one thing that I have learnt from the both of you, its that to remain true to yourself, both on and off the mat. I can see that in you and I want to work towards the same for myself. Thank you for reminding me that being a yoga teacher is not for myself, but the students. Its not about the teacher, but rather the students. I still have an aversion to teaching, but am glad I choose to take the exams. Thank you once again, for being with me and helping me deepen my practice and understanding."

    "When I was considering this Nepal trip, I was very apprehensive. My usual idea of a holiday is a 5-star hotel, but speaking with Routes of Yoga puts my worries to rest. The minute I clicked send on my booking, I could not shake off that sense of excitement! I did not know what to expect from the trip and it turned out to be such a life changing experience for me! Everything was impeccably organized. From yoga practice in the beautiful outdoors, to browsing the bustling shops around the majestic Boudhanath Stupa, or exploring the sacred grounds of Pashupatinath Temple, every activity was an opportunity to learn more about the rich culture and spirituality that Nepal holds."

    "The yoga sessions were so thoughtfully lead! Vinyasa practices got us warmed up in the cool mornings, while soothing evening classes made sure our post-hike legs would not feel sore the next day. After experiencing such personalized instruction, I would never be able to go to one of those run-of-the-mill yoga studios! I had the honor of meeting an amazing group of participants from around the world. We came together as individuals embarking on personal adventures, but left as friends, having shared this portion of the journey together."

You both are amazing yoga teachers with so much passion and talent. When I arrived I couldn't believe how awesome of shape you both were in (Daphne, you are the most beautiful person ever). You both are glowing. Please continue to change the lives of many with your teachings!"

    "Wow! What an incredible 23 days here in Ubud. So grateful for Routes of Yoga coming into my life and encouraging me to spend my summer in such a beautiful environment. How special it was to learn from two passionate personable and authentic instructors. You both shared so much information, knowledge, and life lessons with each of us. The program was run so smoothly and professional. Everyday, I would leave Taksu smarter, stronger, and more inspired than when I arrived in the morning. Mahalo for everything! Thank you for putting together such a memorable teacher training."

    "Dear Daphne and Anton, I nearly wanted to write something in Portuguese, so that I could express my feelings better. Even though I just wanted to share how lovely this (almost) one month that we spent together was. So many things I learn, not just about yoga, but about myself since these days inspired me in so many ways. Thank you very much for all you guys have shared with us. This is just priceless. I will never forget you!"

    "I cannot thank you two enough. Thank you for having me. It has been amazing experiences, much more than I expected.The first day, Anton welcomed me at the entrance, I was so nervous. I was like okay I know his face! I saw him online and he looks a bit scary. I found out he is not soon. And, OMG Daphne! You are smoking hot! I tell you now cause its over. Sometimes, I was just staring at you. Whatever you said, it did not come into my brain! I was just staring at you. You are too beautiful for being teacher!"

    "But, you two both are so good at teaching and I really feel I have leant something important. Not only about yoga.Thank you again! I am so going to miss you two! Hope to see you again and join some classes at some point!"

    "Dear Daphne, thank you so much for bring a big and exciting part of my yoga journey. From guiding me in Yin classes to introducing me to Vinyasa style classes, and now guiding me to be a baby yoga teacher. It has been a tiring journey, these past four weeks. From the mind boggling anatomy lectures to the oh-so interesting subtle stuff of yoga and the most challenging part of the teacher training, talking to students, and the sleepless nights spent talking to myself."

    "My favorite part of the training is of course, coming up with a sequence that makes sense for me and Im so glad I had a chance to do this practice here. Really very grateful to have this chance to really immerse myself in all yoga things, but I know that this is just the beginning of a new journey and there is still so much to learn and process. Only when I am able to internalize what I know can I learn to teach others. If there is one thing that I remember from what you said, it is to teach what you know and practice what you teach. With love and gratitude."

    "In my opinion, a good teacher is not just someone who imparts all his or her knowledge, but someone who can interest the students in the subject and make them want to discover more about that subject. I think you guys did just that. Thanks for being a big part of my yoga journey and inspiring me to go on discovering more about yoga."

    "Dear Daphne and Anton, Thank you kindly for an incredible experience. I learnt a lot of new words, postures and exercises, and how to breath, but most importantly, I learnt about how yoga can develop inner strength and character and found beauty in a humbling and peaceful way. You both are very gifted and have a manner and grace, which is supportive and encouraging. Truly wonderful."

    "The last few days have been beautiful and it has changed my life in a million ways. The course was very peaceful, just like the both of you! We had enough time to practice, meditate, and learn more about yoga and how it is so much more than physical asanas. I almost felt like you were hosting us in your own house. Thank you so much for everything. I go back with a lot more understanding of yoga, life, breath, and just myself. You both have and always will be very special to me. Thank you!"

The five days of teaching helped to deepen my understanding and practice yoga in a very friendly, natural environment. I am already looking forward to the next retreat."

    "I am missing Bali already! In my opinion, the retreat was really well-organized, from logistics to programs. We were introduced to the different facets of yoga, which were intriguing and sometimes mind-boggling. The workshops gave me a broad understanding of what yoga encompasses. And, I guess what is most enjoyable is having a group of like-minded individuals to practice and share with. Thanks once again for this great trip!"

    "I really enjoyed the retreat, thank you. I could have stayed for five weeks instead of five days! I like the style, in which Anton and Daphne teach their classes and found the information provided additional to the classes was great. Many of the questions I have about Ashtanga and Vinyasa based Hatha yoga practice were answered before I got to ask. For me, personally the retreat was an absolute pleasure. I enjoyed the teaching, food, location, and surrounds. I would recommend it to anyone seeking that style of yoga."

The trip was thoughtfully planned and you guys really spared no efforts to make sure we were comfortable at all times. Many of the things shared with us during the practices and the various workshops are new to me, and I would definitely like to learn and explore more about the various aspects of yoga. Lastly, kudos to you two lovely teachers!"
