Syllabus of 200 Hour yoga teacher training course in Goa, India
Hatha Yoga is considered to be the foundation of all yogic asana practices which sprout from its fundamental nature for creating a balance between the mind and body by accessing the inner roots of our being. This form of yoga plays a huge importance to breathing techniques.
Our regular Hatha class comprises relatively paced practice of various hatha yoga postures, breathing awareness and techniques, and meditation practices. All of our classes begin and conclude with mantra chanting.
The practice of traditional Hatha yoga is aimed at balancing your body and stilling your mind, so it can be trained to stay healthy and keep away from external distractions that may hamper your practice. A Hatha Yoga practitioner ultimately cultivates a subtle consciousness within the body that assists in nurturing a meditative form.
200 hour multi style yoga teacher training in Goa at Rishiguna yogashala follow the ancient tradition of Ashtanga Yoga as popularized by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Traditionally, yoga helps you in completely knowing yourself and calm yourself. However, this real meaning can get a bit lost amidst the practices of exercise-centric yoga that seems to be very popular nowadays. Ashtanga, on the other hand, brings modern-day yogis back to the ancient roots of yogic practice.
Pattabhi’s Ashtanga yoga comprises a fixed series of postures linked together with breath. Unlike modern-day yoga practices, the Ashtanga sequence of postures remains the same, and the practice is traditionally performed without music, mood lighting, or other factors of the western yoga class. By taking away these external factors, Ashtanga Yoga practitioners are able to streamline their attention inward, focusing on the internal aspects of yoga rather than the physical.
During our Ashtanga yoga classes, we teach the whole primary series including rules of sequencing, pranayama, mantra chanting as well as drishti and bandha.
Often confused with ‘power yoga’, Vinyasa Yoga is a modern, fast-paced practice inspired from the Ashtanga Vinyasa system and the highly-revered Guru T. Krishnamacharya himself. This style of yoga is characterized by easing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using the synchronization of breath and drishti.
The primary difference between Ashtanga and Vinyasa is that while the former follows a fixed sequence, the latter observes flowing of each pose organically and has no specific sequence. The dynamic nature of Vinyasa Yoga helps to acquire a more balanced body as well as prevent recurring motion injuries.
During our 200 hour yoga training program in Vinyasa practice, we focus primarily on training you in sharp sequencing that not only strengthens your body but also allows the energy to smoothly flow through. Our Vinyasa class is taught keeping in mind the principles of alignment, meaning that even though you will move between postures swiftly, you would be taught safe practices so as to avoid any injuries.
Completely opposite to the vigorous, fast-paced Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga styles, Yin Yoga focuses on the deep connective tissues of your body – the ligaments, bones, joints, and deep fascia networks. It’s gentler and more contemplative, allowing you space to turn inward and tune into your mind as well as the physical sensations of your body. In Yin Yoga, you hold your postures for a longer period than other traditional forms which means that you would stretch and lengthen those barely-used tissues as well as learn how to control you breathing through any discomfort.
On an energetic level, Yin yoga enhances energy flow and improves the flow of ‘chi’ in the organs but the practice also offers huge mental and emotional benefits too.
Usually, our Yin Yoga class includes of a series of passive floor asanas held for a longer duration, that primary focuses on the lower part of the body, namely the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are specifically rich in connective tissues.
Mysore Style Yoga
Mysore style yoga is the conventional way of practicing ashtanga yoga and offers an extremely personalized approach with all of the group energy of a conventional class. This style is different than any other method of teaching yoga in the way that during practice, the class is not instructed as a whole but it is more one-on-one training within the group.
At Rishiguna Yogashala, we learn Mysore style yoga every Saturday where you practice your own part of Ashtanga sequence of asanas at you own pace while the teacher assists each one of you individually by giving verbal as well as physical instructions on how to adjust and align your movements to get the best out of them.
Breathing is the first as well as the last thing we do in life. It is the only constant in our lives. However, regular stressors, worries and physical habits can lead to physical and energetic hindrances in our bodies. And, without even realizing it, our breathing gradually becomes light or unnatural and we develop unconscious dysfunctional breathing patterns that limit the flow of breath and prana.
When we work on liberating and controlling our breath through pranayama practices, we also allow the life energy to flow smoothly through the body. This kind of controlled and mindful breathing has the effect of revitalizing, calming and restoring the body, letting everything fall into its right place. At the same time, during our meditation classes, we also highlight the importance of correct breathing in coordination with asanas practice.
An important part of your 200 hour yoga teacher training in India, Philosophy classes play a very vital role in your yogic journey – almost as critical as your physical practice if not more. During these classes, you would learn about the chakras. With proper guidance you would learn how to connect with them and to empower them through various practices. Your philosophy class would also comprise a thorough study of the eight limbs of yoga as mentioned in the Yoga Sutra by Patanjali.
During the class, all of you are encouraged to actively participate and share your individual perspective towards yoga and its related practices. Furthermore, we would also talk about and learn how to implement these practices in our daily lives as we believe that yoga is not only about your time on the mat but also about your daily life.
We all know that yoga practice involves challenging your mind and body out of its comfort zone and unlock the flow and movement of energy throughout our body. But, at the very root of it, the practice requires a lot of vigorous physical movements. This is why, yoga places a very high significance on the study of human anatomy so you learn about each and every muscle and bone in your body. Keep in mind, this would also help you to guide your own classes should you choose to make a career out of your yoga training.
Our yoga teacher training course is structured in a way that it consists thorough knowledge of the organs, muscles, bones, joints, blood vessels and nerves within your body. Knowing the anatomy of your body is an added is vital so you learn which part of your body can sustain which type of injuries, which posture targets which muscle compartments and which asanas are specific to healing on injuries.
Adjustment And Alignment
The importance of adjustment and alignment in yoga cannot be focused enough. An extremely critical topic, your adjustment and alignment lessons focus on teaching your how to adjust in each asana without causing any injuries to your body. It is done not only to prevent your body from any new stress or injury but also to avoid inflicting harm to any existing injuries.
In our Adjustment and Alignment class, you would learn to position your body exactly where it should be. At the same time, if you are pursuing the course to be a yoga teacher, you must learn how to work with your students and instruct them through various poses. By gaining a deeper understanding of anatomy, kinesiology and correct adjustment and alignment techniques, you can ensure that your students safely reap the benefits of yoga for years to come.
If you are learning yoga to be a teacher or to make a career out of it, our classes in Teaching Methodology should be of high importance to you because in these classes, you not only learn how to be an effective teacher but also the many responsibilities you have as a spiritual guide to your students. At the same time, you learn about the various principles, ethics, and value of yoga as well as teaching.
Additionally, we encourage complete participation during the class through various interactive exercises and mock scenarios that help you learn how to handle various situations in the future when you lead your own class.
Towards the end of every week, we conduct practicums where you get a chance to practically implement your learnings by starting to give demo teaching classes in smaller groups. These groups comprise of you batch mates which makes it easier for you to move through the class and build confidence. The classes are thoroughly observed by your mentor who, at the end of ever practicum, shares their valuable feedback with you in order to help you improve and reach your full potential.
