What to expect out of your 100 hour Multistyle Yoga Teacher Training?
100 hour yoga course essentially, comprises the curriculum of the first two weeks of a four-week 200-hour Multistyle TTC. Though this level is basic, it is an intensive course that requires your complete dedication and focus. During these two weeks, you get to practice the ancient form of Hatha, get an introduction of Ashtanga, the basics of Mysore yoga, as well as the history of yoga and the anatomy of the human body, and much more.
The first week of the course begins with an introduction to yoga and the yoga teaching profession. Throughout this week, you will be taught about the history of yoga and its various definitions as well as forms, as described by the various school of thought. You would also begin practicing the primary/basic series of HATHA, regarded as the foundation and the most conventional form of yoga that is practiced in the modern world. At the same time, you will learn about the important principles of adjustment and alignment and be introduced to yoga anatomy and physiology.
During the week, you would also learn about your primary tasks as a yoga teacher by starting to teach in pairs as well as small groups. Throughout these teaching practice classes, you will be given simple tasks by your yoga mentor and be expected to follow their guidance and unveil your inner voice as a future mentor.
You would also get a chance to learn about the various Yoga philosophies which primarily focus on the various yogic traditions. Additionally, you will start learning about the principles of Patanjali’s eight limb system, as mentioned in the Yoga Sutra.
Your evening classes, during the entire course period, are dedicated to gentler practices, such as yin yoga, restorative yoga, yoga nidra, and meditation. This is programmed to provide your mind and body the necessary nourishment and rest that it requires after a long day of intense practice. Occasionally, we will also introduce certain meditation techniques such as mantra chanting, Satsang, chair yoga, and partner yoga.
Welcome to week 2 of your 100 hour yoga teacher training in Goa, India. After the introduction to important fundamentals of yoga training in the first week, it is time to delve deeper into the more intense practices of yoga. Thus, we dedicated this week towards learning and practicing of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga – a style popularized by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, that truly revolutionized yoga and brought it to every corner of the world.
During the second week, you will learn about the basics of Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series, including modifications designed to cater to all levels of practitioners. We also implement teaching methodology during the practice so you understand how to practice these sequences safely and guide others to do the same in the future.
At Rishiguna Yogshala, we believe in the safest practices and we understand that every human body is different in terms of flexibility and agility. That is why, our yoga mentors pay individual attention to all of you, ensuring logical adjustments and modifications as and when required.
