Detailed Program

The course follows high-quality standards by including subjects, such as asanas, pranayamas, kriyas, chanting, mantra, meditation, Anatomy & Physiology, Yoga Philosophy/Ethics/Lifestyle, and other traditional yoga techniques. Besides that, Training is customized with a new focus on some other interesting practices listed below that are fundamental to teach Yoga in the proper way.

Emotional Rebalancing

Emotions play an extremely strong role in one’s life. However, we live in a society where we constantly have to suppress our emotions, which creates emotional blocks. What if something went wrong in the past can’t let us fulfill our quest for knowledge and inner mental wellness? We teach various techniques on “How to Clear Emotional Blocks”. The students firstly experience it first hand and once you learn how to do it on yourself first, you’ll be able to guide your students, helping them ease stress, anxieties, and the traumas. There is going to be some guided practice to understand the huge relationship between emotional accumulation in the body with thought patterns. With these techniques when combining with yoga practice, our graduates would really stand out in guiding people n the yogic path of true happiness.

Self-Healing Through Five (5) Elements

Naturopathy healing is one of the oldest forms of alternative medicine in India. During the course, you are going to learn about basic Naturopathy techniques using the 5 elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space). It not only helps in healing but also boosts your energies. This module offers a unique opportunity to learn how to reconnect through Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Space to rebalance the body and the mind.

Yoga Nidra and Relaxation Techniques

Yoga Nidra is a useful guided yogic practice for deep relaxation, emotional situations management, and stress relief. It is also called “Yogic Sleep” that helps one “to get in and look internally” in order to find the harmony of body, mind, and spirit. You pay close attention to the various parts of the body as you relax. The perception of the various parts is orchestrated by the yoga teacher with the will to create a shiny quiet and a state of deep relaxation. It resolves nervousness, irritability, treats colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and useful against menstrual disorders, dizziness, and hypertension.

Yogic Breathing Techniques

Breathing properly is key to a successful yoga practice. Practicing without the right breath, you will never be able to extract its true potential. As we know, moving with the breath is what can lead a yogi to internal massage, which helps to heal the organs and release tensions. Plus, several yogic breathing techniques are fundamental to deepening your spiritual practice. We will teach you these techniques and how to add them to your movement to gain a deeper experience.
