100 hours Course Content
Yoga History & Philosophy
Not only will we study the history and philosophy of yoga, but we will endeavour to increasingly apply all precepts (yamas and nymasa) of yoga in our daily lives, such as ahimsa (non-violence) and svadyaya (self-study). We will also explore the concepts of dharma and karma, amongst others through ancient yogi texts like Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra (see ‘Required books’below).
Intro to Ayurveda
Study Ayurveda, Yoga’s medical sister science, as it can change the way one should approach a yoga practice. Moreso, you’ll find out about your individual Dosha and understand the importance of elements and tastes and how those can affect your physiological and psychological health and well-being through diet, yoga and lifestyle.
Meditation & Pranayam
Experience and practice a variety of breath and meditation techniques, as well as subtle tools such as Mudras and Bandhas which can assist your practice. Just like muscles need to strengthen to perform certain poses, so the mind needs to practice to find stillness, and the breath expand to find peace. For many of these practices we will touch the surface – to take it deeper later immersions and/or Teacher Trainings can be pursued after the course.
It is important you understand this is not just a course to stimulate your intellectual mind. Whilst this will also happen, more important is the inner transformation that occurs when you allow the differnt yogic tools and ways that you’ll be not only learning, but exploring and experiencing, to deeply affect you to the core. As such, plenty of opportunities to grow, to shed layers, to cry and laugh and immerse deeply will be offered, including sharing circles, moon ceremony and kirtan.
Anatomy & Physiology
Learn to perform simple to advanced asanas more safely, with acuracy and understanding of both basic human anatomical structures, as well as subtle body influences. The most common poses will be broken down, one by one, and specific workshops will guide you deeper into backbends, inversions and even myofascia releases.
To further your understanding and deepen your insight into the many facets of yoga, we will explore Vinyasa, Hatha, Slow Flow, Yin and Acro, as well as pre- & post-natal yoga. Several guest teachers will deepen your knowledge in specific fields such as Iyengar, Ashtanga, Kundalini and Yoga Therapy. With a solid understanding of the basics, you will be given the tools to develop your own unique style and sequences.
Chakras, Koshas & Cleansing
Experience different layers of energetics and their effects on our body, mind and spirit. Our training includes specific workshops on Chakras (energy wheels that ultimately liberate the kundalini serpent), koshas (layers of the body), Meridian systems and their seasonal application an intro to Nadis (the subtlest energy channels in the Vedic System) and more.
