200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh

Course Overview

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga means “eight limbs or branches or components” in Sanskrit. According to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, there is a practice known as the Eightfold Path leading to self-awakening and liberation. As the name implies, Ashtanga yoga describes all eight limbs of yoga and promotes both spiritual and psychological health. It focuses on a predetermined sequence of poses linked by breath and movement. 

Ashtanga yoga puts emphasis on muscle development and physical strength. Ashtanga yoga revitalizes your body, making it stronger, more flexible, toned and controlled.

The first four limbs detoxify your external environment and guide you how to communicate with it. The next four limbs concentrate on withdrawal, internal cleansing, and how you connect to your mind.

Traditional Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga seeks to unite mind, body and spirit through five elements – 

  • asanas (yoga postures)
  • mudra (body gestures)
  • bandha (energy locks or seals)
  • pranayama (yoga breathing)
  • shatkarma (internal cleansing)

These body-centered practices under Hatha yoga not just strengthen and cleanse the physical body, but they also cultivate prana (life-force energy) and invoke kundalini (dormant spiritual energy). Most of these esoteric techniques are no more emphasized in modern Hatha Yoga which focuses primarily on physical yoga practices.

While practicing Hatha Yoga, you will also have the chance to learn about Yin and restorative yoga as part of our 200 Hour Yoga TTC. You will be taught Basic and Advanced level Hatha Yoga. Spanning over a period of 25 days, this TTC will enhance your experience and knowledge of other yoga practices and traditions as well.

By the end of the course, you will be fully prepared bustling with confidence to teach yoga.
