Syllabus

HOURS + TOPICS

You will gain insight into the evolution of yoga from the vedic to these modern times. We guide you in how to apply yoga philosophy in your yoga practice, your teachings, and most importantly, in your everyday life. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, with a particular focus on the 8 limbs of yoga, will be studied in depth.

You’ll practice asana, pranayama techniques, and different meditations 2-6 hours every day. Since a Parimukti training is demanding and challenging physically and mentally, we find it important to have a good balance between more dynamic physical practice and classes to restore and rejuvenate (yin, yoga nidra, restorative).

A variation of different pranayama techniques is integrated into our your daily practice. Consequently, you will become familiar with key verbal instructions, function, benefits and contraindications of the most important pranayamas. At the end of the program you will have integrated these practices and, thus, will be able to incorporate pranayama into your teaching, as well.

Meditation is a very important element of Parimukti trainings. In this 200 hours training you’ll develop an understanding of what meditation is and how it helps to gain insight into ourselves and our relationship with the world. You will be introduced to meditation techniques like silent sitting, movement meditations, heart meditations, and buddhist meditations. Also, every student can choose to have a day in silence. This day you will receive teachings and practices silently, allowing yourself to observe your beliefs and thoughts more closely.

Teaching is a great medium to learn about yourself and others. Therefore, you will be asked to work with the other students, in groups, on teaching assignments from the very beginning. Our teachers will give you practical tools and constructive feedback that will help you grow rapidly and confidently. The Art of Teaching classes are a great platform where you can integrate what you have learned in the alignment, anatomy and philosophy classes. Above all you will be invited and challenged to find your unique way of teaching a class.

Proper understanding of anatomy is crucial for a yoga (asana) teacher. During this course you will study the functional applied anatomy of the major joints (knee joint, hip joint, shoulder joint, and spine), fundamental bones and basic muscles throughout the course. This will help you to understand and identify differences in students and corresponding needs. We will introduce you to different models of how the body is being perceived by the yoga tradition. Therefore we will discuss the chakras, nadis, kriyas, mudras, bandhas and koshas. This will help you to more fully understand the process and benefits of yoga.

An intensive yoga teacher training is a deeply transforming experience for each individual student. Therefore, we offer in-depth guidance and equip you with many skills for the journey of discovering your own innate nature and truth. For students with special interests we offer a mentor program which gives you personal guidance throughout the training. Also, after the training we can help you to set up your own centre and mentor you on your further growth. And last but not least. Studying and spending almost a month with like-minded people will certainly will support you in a sense of community, camaraderie, and friendship.

Your practice is your foundation, your real teacher. In the training, you will commit to daily practicing asana, pranayama, and meditation. Your practice will allow you to experience the effects on your body and mind. What you experience, you will understand. What you understand, you will be able to share with others.

You will be introduced to chanting mantras in a more classical setting (start/end of the class) as well as a more joyous setting in a kirtan evening. You will be chanting some of the most important mantras and understand by experience how sound can positively charge oneself and the environment.

You will have a daily alignment class, in which you learn the most important asana postures addressing their alignment. These classes include Sanskrit and English names, key verbal cues, function of the postures, basic hands-on adjustments, benefits and contraindications. All types of asana are covered: standing, standing balancing, sitting poses (forward bends and twists) forward bends, supine, back bending, core awakening, arm balance and inversions.

Certification

This program is registered with the American Yoga Alliance (YA), and meets the established standards. Completing the program will allow you to register with the Yoga Alliance as a RYT-200. Qualification is provided after successful completion of a written test and one practical exam (teaching one full class).
