In our 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training in India, we focus on creating the right foundation for Yoga in you. It means, we teach you all the poses of Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series with the help of Yoga-props in order to achieve the correct alignment and make it comfortable and stable for you. According to the founder of Yoga Patanjali this is exactly the definition of Yoga: ‘Sthir Sukham Asanam; that which is stable and comfortable is called asana, posture.’
We teach you the correct method to apply Ujjayi, breath, Dristi, gaze and Bandhas, energy locks during the physical practice.
In this physical part we also teach you the applied and specific anatomy, so that you will have a clear understanding of the basic principles of alignment and its interplay with the forces of physics. It helps you to comprehend your own body and your student’s body in a better way and adjust your yoga practice according to your own body structure. One of the common mistakes people make in the field of alignment based Yoga is that they think alignment is same for everyone, which is not true. Everyone’s body is different, hence the technique to align the body will vary from person to person. We’ll teach you how to adjust the techniques of alignment according to the natural variations of different human bodies.
Applied physiology of the muscles and internal organ in the context of Yoga will be taught to you. Special emphasis will be given on exercise physiology in order to bring about an understanding of stability and flexibility, strength and mobility and so on. In this section we’ll also focus on diet and food intake according to your body type and practice.
Pranayama, mindfulness of breath
If breath work and awareness is not combined with physical practice then Yoga is just a circus. Hence, we teach you the Yogic techniques of breathing called Pranayama which are designed to deepen and increase the awareness of breath. It is very important to learn these techniques as Yoga teachers because our body, breath and mind are closely connected.
In context of breath awareness we also teach you about cleansing processes in Yoga called Kriyas. They work on your physical, emotional and energy bodies and help you release the blockages which makes your body-mind rigid and prevents flexibility.
Mindfulness of breath leads you to the mindfulness of your thoughts, emotions and feelings which is called meditation in Yogic literature. We teach easy and scientific techniques of meditation which has no religious connotations. Anyone can practice them with ease and without any special requirements. According to the vision of Asan Yoga, mindfulness or meditation and yoga are scientific techniques to know oneself and have no association with any religion or nation. Our meditations are both dynamic and fun oriented. Some meditations are combined with movements such as dance, laughter, chanting and some are silent sitting with passive awareness something like Vipassana Meditation.
Anybody can dance, celebrate, laugh, meditate and practice yoga irrespective of their belief, nationality or background. These beautiful qualities of life are available to all. So we say- ‘Yoga for All’.
Vishram, Art of Relaxing
Some easy techniques for relaxing your body and mind will be taught to you which are called ‘Talking to Your Body and Mind’ or traditionally they were termed as ‘Yoga Nidra’.

It is advised to the students who are preparing to join Yoga TTC that they should take a look into these books prior to their YTTC.
Shikshan, the Art of Teaching
The first two weeks of Yoga Teacher Training has Art of Teaching class every evening, it’s termed as ‘Teaching Methodology’. We’ll teach you the art of becoming a teacher which implies the ability to make a nice presentation of your knowledge, art of caring your students and sharing from your heart, learning to observe your students, their difficulties and finding a way to help them remove those difficulties. One of the most important part of this section is ‘Hands on Adjustment’. It’s a hand-work, hence needs a lots of practice and sharp observation during these classes. We’ll teach you how to adjust your own body-position and handle the student’s body position during adjusting your students so that it doesn’t injure you as a teacher and helps you maintain the balance during the adjustment in any pose.
