Hatha Yoga TTC

200 hour Hatha Yoga TTC

Hatha Yoga is the science of purification and channelization of energies 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 body as ‘Ha’ which is pingala or right nostril and ‘Tha’ which is ida or left nostril. When the dual aspects of ida and pingala merge there is awakening of higher consciousness in the practitioner. That is why the purpose of asana, pranayama, cleansing techniques etc. in Hatha Yoga is to open energy channels for the flow of energy in definite paths without causing any harm to body and mind.

In Hatha Yoga it is of prime importance to maintain self-observation and to witness the changes that takes place in the body so that we become aware of the subtler aspects of our personality.

 

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 Bhagawad Gita.  “Chitta vritti nirodha” as suggested by Patanjali is the bottom line of Yoga practice. And Hatha Yoga which consider itself as stepping-stone to Patanjali’s Yoga greatly assist us to achieve this cherished state of mental control. That is why the traditional Hatha Yoga is only practiced for Raj Yoga. 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 Yogasutras also known as Raja Yoga. In this way we channelize from our dynamic (body) state to the more silent (mind, awareness) aspect of personality by combining Hatha with Raja yoga. That is how we guide our students through a challenging and intensive 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course towards a transformative and sustainable Yoga.
