Location

Rishikesh, India

Tapovan area is full of meadows, streams and flowering plants and the meadows are considered as one of the best high altitude meadows in India. The exquisite setting on the fast-flowing Ganges, surrounded by forested hills, is conducive for meditation and mind expansion. In the evening, an almost supernatural breeze blows down the valley, setting temple bells ringing as sadhus, pilgrims and tourists prepare for the nightly ganga aarti - a fire offering or ritual performed on the Ganges.


Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi (DEL) is the international airport that is closest to the schools in Rishikesh and Dharamsala. From there, you have several options to get to Rishikesh. It is recommend to either take an additional flight from New Delhi to Dehra Dun (DED) or arrange for a taxi or bus for the final part of your journey.

Food

You will enjoy three meals a day of freshly cooked Sattvic vegetarian food in the dining hall that is overlooking the mountains to the north of the ashram.
The ashram strives to provide nourishing, clean and tasty yogic food and to offer options such as sugar-free and milk free porridge and tea. They get about 75% of its food (depending on the season) directly from the organic farm next door to the Helping Hands for India school project, including wheat, rice, carrots, and turnips.

Syllabus

HOURS + TOPICS

In the first half of the program, trainees will be gradually introduced to teaching by teaching a peer one pose in the Techniques class. This will progress towards teaching one pose to the whole group ‘Group Teaching’. In second half of the course, the trainees will each teach three classes with a peer. Each will teach 40 minutes for a whole 1 hour and 20 minute class. They will then get 20 minutes of feedback from their peers and from the trainer. The first round will be a beginner’s class; the second round will be an intermediate class; and for the third round, teams can choose to teach either a gentle, prenatal, dynamic, beginner, all levels or intermediate class. The practicum is the main factor in graduation from the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India.

Subtle anatomy is the yogic teaching regarding the three bodies, the physical body, the astral body and the causal body, as well as the five corresponding sheaths, and the yogic techniques that purify each sheath. Further, the concept of nadis, and chakras will be explored. The shape, location, associated glands, and characteristics of each chakra will be explored. This subject will be complemented by the practical meditation sessions and chanting sessions which will explore meditating and chanting to purify the chakras. It will also complement the discussion of the ida, pingala and shushumna nadis that is intrinsic to any discussion of pranayama and the bandhas.

This class aims to teach trainees about anatomy and how it relates to yoga. Teachers and students will be guided by resources such as Anatomy and Asana, and The Anatomy of Movement. Subjects will include the study of the skeleton, muscles and joints, the cardio-vascular system, the respiratory system and the endocrine system and how they are benefited by yoga.

Practical teaching methodology includes how to demonstrate, observe, cue and assist students. This will be integrated with the Techniques class. Theoretical discussions of methodology (pedagogy) aim to explore how to become a transformational facilitator, or teacher rather than just an instructor. This includes such topics as: the art of sequencing, creating a safe space, establishing a student-centered class, managing group dynamics, language and cuing, the ethics of assisting, and creating a yogic environment for learning, (including the dress of the teacher, yogic colours, the direction of the class etc). Trainees will also discuss qualities that will be instrumental to them as teachers.

The program attributes quite a bit of emphasis to this section. This section will introduce yoga psychology and philosophy through discussions on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Chapters One and Two. Trainers will present sutras, and also use pairwork and group work discussions to give trainees the opportunity to explore how these sutras relate to their practice, and how they live their lives.

A flowing sequence of asanas with long holding designed to encourage working through resistance, releasing outmoded patterns, and moving towards a profound sense of balance. Classes are interwoven with pranayama, mantra and kernels of wisdom from the yogic teachings and close with relaxation and meditation.

Akhanda Prenatal Yoga classes offer a balanced, holistic sequence of asana, pranayama, mantra, relaxation and meditation tailored to the stages of pregnancy.

In this unique class style, you will lean to design holistic sequences for a variety of levels that take students on a journey through the five layers of being: physical, energetic, mental/emotional, intuitive and bliss. A short series of pranayama and as asana techniques is repeated three times with a focus on each of the first three layers in progression. The final savasana and meditation lead students through the intuitive and spontaneous joy or bliss layer.

Gentle and supported yoga practices for stress release, nurture and general wellbeing. These classes are rejuvenating for anyone who wants to reconnect with themselves during busy times or who deep rest for the body and mind.

Vishva-ji developed this class style in 2002 to promote meditate flow, great for the evenings. In this practice, you will perform the sonorous Brahmaree pranayama (bumble bee breath) during each posture.

In order to get the certification of this yoga teacher training, you must accomplish a practicum where you will teach and receive feedback on one-on-one and group sessions at the end of the course.
