What is Hatha yoga teacher training?

Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga derived from one of the six schools of Hinduism. It is the science of yoga which purifies the whole physical body by means of shatkarma (six cleansing practices), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), mudra (seals), bandha (locks) and concentration, as a prelude to raja (or Kingly) yoga and samadhi (higher state of awareness commonly referred to as “bliss”). All of which are explored during your teacher training program in various forms.

What is Ashtanga yoga teacher training?

The eight-limbed yoga of Sage Patanjali: yama (moral code), niyama (self-restraints), asana (posture), pranayama (breathing practices), pratyahara (sense withdrawal), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), samadhi (bliss). Ashtanga Yoga is often confused with the popularized vinyāsa style of yoga developed by K. Pattabhi Jois in 1948. Both the origin and sequences developed by Jois, as well as Patanjali’s teachings, will be explored during an Ashtanga yoga teacher training course.

What is Vinyasa yoga teacher training?

A “vinyāsa” is a smooth transition between asanas in styles of modern yoga such as Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Bikram Yoga, especially when movement is paired with the breath. Vinyasa yoga teacher training bridges Hatha yoga with pranayama in an intricate manner, creating a foundation for a holistic approach to the path of healing through breath and movement. This yoga training combines the wisdom of the yoga lineage with contemporary understanding of the body, emotional system, and spiritual practices.

What is Kundalini yoga teacher training?

Kundalini, in Hinduism refers to a form of primal energy said to be located at the base of the spine. In yoga, latent female energy is also believed to lie coiled at the base of the spine. Kundalini yoga is practices to awaken this energy. It is a blend of Bhakti Yoga (the yogic practice of devotion and chanting), Raja Yoga (the practice of mediation/mental and physical control) and Shakti Yoga (for the expression of power and energy). A teacher training program through this school of yoga is influenced by Shaktism and Tantra schools of Hinduism.

What is Meditation yoga teacher training?

Meditation Yoga Teacher Training courses immerse students in residential programs intended to guide practitioners through various levels of self-awareness and inner awakening. It’s goal is to prepare others who seek to offer meditation instruction in a group setting such as a yoga class, school group, nursing home, library, on a one-to-one basis with the necessary skills to do so. This teacher training program is recommended for yoga students, yoga teachers, social workers, school teachers, health care workers, caregivers and leaders in any field.

What is Iyengar yoga teacher training?

Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar, also known as B.K.S. Iyengar, was the founder of the style of modern yoga known as "Iyengar Yoga,” a form of Hatha yoga that emphasizes precision and physical alignment of the body in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). An Iyengar yoga teacher training curriculum is designed to help students gain flexibility, balance, and strength, and give them the necessary tools to help manage chronic conditions like lower back pain. Strength, mobility and stability are gained through the asanas.
