ANATOMY & ASANA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
15 days Certified Yoga Teacher Training Courses
Number of participants: 4-16 participants
Requirements: 7 von 10
This intensive yoga training requires a lot of discipline and commitment. In order to obtain the certificate, no hours of absence may be recorded and a theoretical and practical examination must be passed.
15 days 80 hours of yoga teacher training
Nowadays, modern yoga classes are 80-90 % Asana practice and 5-10 % pranayama practice.
Given our lifestyle, where we sit in front of the computer most days and cower for a long time in unhealthy postures, an energetic and strong daily yoga class with a focus on asanas will simply get you back on balance. And that’s what yoga is all about: BALANCE.
This makes it all the more important, of course, that the yoga teacher has a sound knowledge of human anatomy and can apply the theory in a practical yoga class through alignment, adjustments and corrections.
Due to incorrect postures, many unnecessary injuries happen or students who already suffer from injuries or illnesses are getting even more injured. Learn how to avoid these mistakes as a teacher during this course.
- Anatomical and physiological theory related to yoga asana, pranayama, meditation and relaxation
- The spine and asana practice
- Anatomical movements and how they are applied to postures
- Understand the relationship between asanas and contraindications
- deep understanding of muscle work
- Alignment, correction, hands-on and pushing for 50 + Asana
This course is for:
- Yoga teachers who want to deepen their knowledge of anatomy
- Yoga teachers who want to be trained in alignment, cuing and asana variations
- Anyone interested in the relationship between anatomy, alignment and yoga
- For registered Yoga Teachers of the Yoga Alliance who want to receive certified training hours
The course location
This yoga class takes place at the beautiful Mountain Camp “Riverside Resorts” in the Indian Himalayas in Daramshala at 1800 m.
You can choose between staying in a tent or in a small hut or tree house.
In the morning you wake up through the sound of the nearby stream and the singing of the birds. The daily yoga classes take place on our green camp lawn, surrounded by snow-capped mountains.
The camp is the ideal place for some peace and relaxation. We will also set up a small massage centre where you can enjoy Daily Ayurvedic or Tibetan massages.
The food is freshly prepared by our own camp chefs. It is served as an Indian-vegetarian buffet.
