500 Hour Yoga TTC in Rishikesh

Course Overview

Ashtanga Yoga

Ashtanga Yoga, also known as Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, is a vigorous and smooth flowing style of yoga that originated in the twentieth century. It entails synchronising breath while moving into progressive and continuous postures, that results in generating internal body heat while detoxifying the body. It improves overall health by increasing strength, stamina and flexibility while also calming the mind.

It is based on six levels of practise sequences with increasing difficulty at every level. These sequences are known as the Primary Series, Secondary Series, and Advanced Series A, B, C, and D, respectively. The Primary and Secondary series are for beginner and intermediate level of yoga learners and practitioners. The Advanced Series A, B, C, and D is only for advanced students. Each series consists of a set of poses that must be performed in the same order every time. The sequences are physically demanding and fast-paced.

When the course is over, you’ll be equipped to practice and teach the entire Primary series of asanas with your style and at your speed.

Traditional Hatha Yoga

The word ‘ha’ means Sun, and the word ‘tha’ means Moon. Hatha means balancing your Sun and Moon energies. Hatha also means to be tenacious.

Hatha yoga is the science of balancing our Pingala and Ida – our solar and lunar energies to make our higher consciousness alive. It is the science of activating the third and central nadi which is the path to enlightenment called Sushumna.

Hatha is one of the oldest forms of Yoga practice in South Asia, dating back over 2000 years.

Traditional Hatha Yoga practice entails far more than the well-known Yoga asanas. Hatha Yoga texts emphasise the value of mental qualities such as courage, enthusiasm, determination, and patience. They also emphasise the critical importance of lifestyle, diet, and moral and ethical behaviour.

Hatha Yoga has also traditionally been used to prepare our bodies and minds to access our meridian channels. Preparing the proper environment, particularly for the mind, allows the practitioner to perform medication, giving them access to Universal Consciousness.
