Syllabus

HOURS + TOPICS

Hatha yoga is the foundation of all yoga types that we know today. It allows the practitioner to progress surely, steadily and safely. Hatha Yoga improves concentration, flexibility and focus. With the attention to alignment, it makes it suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced. During the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, the Hatha asana practice provides you with a detailed and strong base, with which you can teach multiple yoga styles later on. The Yoga Teacher Training content will cover all the main hatha yoga asanas (poses) with modifications, variations, and adjustments through props. Learn how to use specific asanas to cure and prevent certain disease or circumstances.

Ashtanga Yoga is very dynamic and modern form of Yoga. Ashtanga Yoga aims to connect quick movement with breath. Much attention is paid on mudras, bandhas and different breathing techniques such as Ujjayi. This form of yoga increases the blood circulation, strength and stability. It detoxifies the body and tunes the internal organs.

This includes variations of the sun salutations A, B and C, standing and sitting postures, inversions, spinal twists, jumps, counter-poses and arms balancing.

Body and mind are closely connected. Repetitive negative thoughts in our mind manifest in our body as blockages causing weakness, impatience, and disease. Through the Emotional Blockage® Treatment, body blockages are removed so the energy can flow at its maximum again. This treatment is an optional part of a 500-hour yoga teacher training course. Over the 55 days you will feel lighter and free. Everyone knows yoga isn’t just about the positions, but not everyone has the spiritual insight to unlock the inner life.


We carry around in our bodies the stress from modern life and trauma from our past. Swami Ji systematically applies pressure to areas of your body where these emotional blockages® are locked. After some period of pain there comes complete release- and many people are surprised to see what comes bubbling up from their deep past. SwamiJi doesn’t support temporary fixes or encourage dependency, so he’ll teach you body-awareness and breathing techniques to maintain your re-balanced freedom. You won’t find another yoga Teacher Training course that offers Becoming a yoga teacher means more than only learning asana, pranayama, anatomy &philosophy. The teaching approach of this course is rather practical than theoretical and demands patience, practice and surrender.

This is an important part of yoga. It develops a holistic expansion of consciousness and awakens the chakras and dormant energies. Through breath control, our mental and physical patterns are modified. The purifying benefits of pranayama lead to self-realisation and optimum health.

During the Pranayama classes you will be introduced to Chandrabhedana, Ujjayi, Sitkari, Nadi Shodhan, Sitali, Bhastrika, Bhramari, Kumbakh and Suryabhedena.

Shatkarmais a Sankrit term and means the six actions. These six actions include physical purification techniques with enriching mental, energetic and spiritual benefits.

Meditation cannot be described in words. Meditation can only be felt through personal experience. During your training, you will learn different techniques including transformational meditation, candle light, sound and kundalini meditation.

Meditation brings us joy, clarity and self-confidence. It lets us recognize that we belong to something much bigger than just our body and mind. You will be introduced to different traditional techniques that will let you enter in meditation easily.

The Power of Transformation is a meditation technique that aims to reduce the toxic and carbon dioxide levels of your body. With seven steps, this meditation practice gives you a feeling of lightness and peace. The technique was invented by Swami Bipin Gyan. He developed the Power of Transformation practice for the fast-thinking, efficient western mind in order to experience bliss, transformation and silence.

The Philosophy behind yoga is as important as the practice itself. Understanding the how’s and why’s behind spirituality, growth and healing powers of yoga, will encourage you to be the best version of yourself and a knowledgeable yoga instructor.

During the Yoga Teacher Training in India, you will get introduced to the Indian Yogic Philosophy and cover various concepts of Yoga according to Patanjali. You will study the Yamas and Niyamas, foundation of yoga, history of yoga, concept of Gods, Samkya philosophy, PanchVritti, PanchKlesha and Gita.

Yoga Anatomy and Physiology provide you with an understanding of the internal body processes. In yoga, optimum health means that all body systems work in harmony together. Is one system weak or sick, the whole cycle is disturbed and cannot function properly anymore. 

In the Anatomy classes, you will learn about the nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, skeletal, muscular, endocrine and digestive system and how they are related to yoga.

The school has their own Ayurvedic Doctor. Dr Vipul Arya is available for ayurvedic consultations and pulse diagnosis. He will teach the Ayurveda classes during the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training.

During this Teacher Training , you will get the chance to discover your inner space while practising mantras. Mantras are used to free the mind from its limitations and let the soul resonate with the universal sound. Furthermore, chanting mantras promotes world peace, lifts the group energy and purifies the environment

As an aspiring yoga instructor, you have to be familiar with structuring your class and creating a suitable environment for your students. During the Teaching methodology and practice, you will learn how to apply the right techniques and modifications in different situations. Learn to structure and design a 60 min & 90 min class, create a suitable setting, modify your class according to your student’s injuries/physical condition, correct postures (hands-on), expand your individual focus, apply the right techniques in different situations.
