Who can join?

Anyone who has a passion for Yoga, wishes to do an in-depth study of Asanas and Pranayama, Meditation and Yoga philosophy or would like to share the benefits of this practice with others should feel free to apply for this course. If you have been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series for at least 3 months, it’s an added advantage. But also if you have no or little experience in Ashtanga Vinyasa this course will be suitable for you.

What to expect

The objective of the TTC Course is to provide beginners and experienced Yoga students with strong technical and theoretical experience. This will enable them to perform Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Primary Series with perfection and correct alignment. The course will equip the future teachers to be completely autonomous and ready to run their own yoga classes at the highest standards.

At the yoga TTC at Abhinam Yoga, students learn a unique combination of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Iyengar alignment principles. This approach has an ultimate goal of practicing injury free yoga.

Every morning, students start the day with pranayama class, which is focused on different breathing techniques. This practice gives a good foundation for the ashtanga vinyasa flow class. In the beginning of the TTC, the ashtanga vinyasa class is lead by senior teachers, later students do their own self practice, i.e. mysore style.

The subject of classes in the middle of the day changes every week; going from yoga philosophy to anatomy and physiology. On top of that, students can also have marketing classes on request, during which they get tips on how to promote themselves as yoga teachers and how to do marketing for their future yoga centers.

The afternoon program starts every day with the teaching methodology. Students learn all postures in detail not only to enhance their own practice but most importantly to help others, their future students, to get into and be correctly aligned in each and every pose. During the afternoon yoga classes, students get introduced to other yoga styles, i.e. yin yoga, hatha yoga or restorative yoga. The day is concluded with an evening meditation.

From the second week of the TTC, students actively participate in teaching as well as adjusting others during the classes. This gives students and future yoga teachers the best opportunity to learn how to teach in a very supportive, open and safe environment. After finishing 200 hours Yoga TTC at Abhinam Yoga, students are trained as well as confident enough to act as yoga teachers and lead yoga lessons.

Sw.Yogananda Namito

Sw.Yogananda Namito (Rakesh Ranjan) started studying yoga at the age of seven under Swami Satyananda, the founder of Bihar School of Yoga and a direct disciple of Swami Shivananda. Later in his life he studied with great masters of yoga and spirituality such as B.K.S Iyengar and J.Krishnamurti.

It was Krishnamurti who inspired him to travel to Iyengar Institute Pune, India and meet Mr. Iyengar in order to learn yoga on deeper level and learn more about the effect of yoga on human body, mind and being. With the blessings of Guruji Iyengar, he fell in love with the art of yoga and began to learn yoga postures with accuracy, alignment and precision along with its therapeutic and medical aspect.

During his travelling years in Europe, Namito became interested in Ashtanga Vinyasa series, Mysore-style yoga and practiced with different European teachers of that style.

He reflects deeply on therapeutic and medical aspect of yoga. It protects his students from any kind of injury during yoga practice and trains them in preventive measures. He has been learning and teaching yoga for more than twenty five years and feels as a raw beginner in this tremendous and vast field of yoga.
