Asanas are one of the most important facets of Yoga. Each asana is performed for a particular beneficial reason. The reasons can vary and may include aligning the body posture, getting rid of toxins, losing weight, overall health, taking away fatigue, and relaxing the mind.

Postures along with their names and meanings are taught in detail. The meaning of a posture can help the learner understand it better and it will also have a better impact as compared to doing it for the sake of it.

These yogic cleansing practices will be integrated into your daily morning schedule and will work in conjunction with the asana practices.

You will learn anatomy and physiology relevant to yoga in order to strengthen the classroom explanations, cues, and corrections of asanas.

This class will focus on introducing you to basic philosophy, concepts and history of yoga. It will cover the various traditional philosophies and viewpoints, insights from modern research and ways in which the essence of this holistic life-view can be integrated into a modern lifestyle.

It is believed that mantras can penetrate the depths of the oblivious mind. Mantras are Sanskrit language elements constantly chanted to adjust the vibration of all regards of your being and have an everlasting influence. One of the perks of mantra chanting is that it can help manage tension. Scientifically referred to as Mantropathy, it is widely practiced for healing and environment cleansing. 

A deeper level of meditation and concentration to know the truth is referred to as Dhyana. Dhyana is mostly done to reach Samadhi, meaning bliss which is the ultimate goal of Yoga. 

The practice of breathing is considered the foundation of Yoga. Deep breathing combined with Yoga has several benefits such as improved blood flow, detoxifies the body, improved digestion among others.

One of the key elements of the 200-hour yoga teacher training in India curriculum is to make future Yoga teachers aware of the importance of sequencing. Sequencing has a vital role to play in conducting a successful and efficient class. A yoga class environment cannot be predicted at all times. It is in the hands of the teacher to engage the class, create a flow and share his/her teachings most suitably and effectively possible
