Yoga Teacher Training Curriculum

The program at Yoga Temple India is designed and aimed at producing skilled and motivating yoga teachers proficient in the ancient practices of yoga sutras and who can also impart this knowledge to their students.

The yoga teacher training curriculum is based on the five points of yoga which can be understood as the practical application of the four traditional paths of this art.

A rigorous daily session includes two meditation sessions, two yoga classes followed by two lectures. The day concludes with one hour of service to the center. Once per week, there is a free lecture. This philosophy forms part of an extensive curriculum.

The aim is to offer you a better understanding when you teach a yoga class and clarify each query or confusion that may arise during the class. There will be time for sharing after teaching practice with the group.

The Hatha yoga and Vinyasa flow classes have an alternate morning and evening switching schedule for a very specific reason. You will learn about them and Yoga Temple India will clarify the reasoning behind each posture during the same day. Also, in the morning and evening classes students will assist the main teachers.

In the last week of training, students will have dedicated one hour or a one-and-half hour in a class with a teacher, who will be there to just watch their performance. If there is anything you need to work with, the teacher will guide you before your certificate.
