The path to transforming into a yoga guru is a lifetime process of learning and India, being the capital of yogic philosophy and spirituality, is the optimum location to develop a strong foundation of internal discipline. The Teachers Training Course (TTC) is a rigorous and transformative experience and at Upaya Yoga we ensure that the curriculum is fully comprehensive with assured personal attention to each student. Upaya Yoga teachings are different from many other yoga schools as the focus on the full spectrum of the yogic path and ashram life, not only asanas (postures). The course also covers alignment, adjustment, anatomy and teaching practice. Students will get to experience meditation, breathing (pranayama), cleansing, chanting, mauna (silence), pooja (worship), kirtan (sacred singing), and other important aspects of the yogic path. Upaya Yoga Teacher Trainings offers the perfect balance of comfort and tranquility in a natural setting for your yoga practice.
