Hatha Yoga TTC

200 hour Hatha Yoga TTC

Hatha Yoga is a profound science of alignment, purification and energy channelization towards absolute balance of mind and body. Based on the basic principle of yoga as union Hatha Yoga brings unification. It is the union of the two polarities that we find universally throughout the nature. Hatha Yoga represents this duality in human system as ‘Ha’ which is right nostril or sun and ‘Tha’ which is left nostril or moon. When the dual aspects of Sun and Moon are aligned and merged there is awakening of higher consciousness in the practitioner.

Hatha Yoga is the mother of all yoga styles and gives strong foundation in all the key elements of yoga like asana, pranayama, kriya and creates a conducive environment within us for higher practices like dharana and dhyana. Bring the cohesiveness between the forces of ‘Ha-Tha’ to broaden your understanding of yoga and deepen your practice with our Teacher Training course and find the yoga teacher hidden in you.

 

Our Philosophy of Hath Yoga Teacher Training

We keep our teacher training program real and authentic to the core. We achieve this by adhering to the principles of Yoga given in the important yogic texts. The most prominent of them are Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Patanjali Yogasutra and Bhagavad Gita. “Calming the mental distractions”  as suggested by Patanjali is the bottom line of Yoga practice. Hatha which consider itself as stepping-stone to Patanjali’s Raja Yoga greatly assists us to achieve this cherished state of mental calmness. Both Hatha Yoga and Raja Yoga go side by side. In similar fashion we introduce Hatha Yoga to our students in the training program. We infuse the dynamic practices of Hatha Yoga with the insights available in the Yoga sutras of Raja Yoga. In this way our awareness flows from our dynamic state to the more silent aspect of personality. Therefore, Hatha Yoga is a powerful way of living where we manifest both dynamism (sun) and silence (moon) or the masculine and feminine aspect in perfect balance. Only when these two are properly balanced within us we are complete human being. That is how we guide our students through a challenging and intensive 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course towards a transformative and sustainable Yoga.

When we train we also keep in mind the benchmarks of Yoga practice and teaching uphold by Yoga Alliance. We distinguish our self in this by meeting and exceeding the standards of quality, competence and safety of Yoga practitioners maintained by Yoga Alliance.
