Course Overview

Ashtanga Yoga

The word Ashtanga refers to the ‘Eight Limbs of Yoga’. Those are – Yamas, Niyamas, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi.

This beginner to intermediate and intermediate to advanced level yoga course takes you through 2 unique styles of ashtanga yoga – Primary Series and Intermediate series.

In your first month of 500 Hours Yoga Course, you will gain proficiency with the essentials of Ashtanga yoga with its Primary Series, which before its finish gets somewhat extraordinary. What’s more, with the start of the subsequent month, you will dive deeper with more profound parts of ashtanga yoga with the Intermediate Series of ashtanga yoga.

The mix of both series will assist you with acquiring certainty and information on ashtanga yoga in general. And, as we reach towards the finish, you will be ready to teach both series without anyone else.

Traditional Hatha Yoga

‘Hatha’ is a Sanskrit word, which means “discipline of force” and the goal of Hatha yoga is to strengthen your muscles and create a mindful connection to your body. Hatha Yoga is known as the core of Asana Practice. We strongly encourage you to bring your creativity into your teaching styles.

You will also have the benefit to explore other styles of asana practice including Yin and restorative yoga, to develop your experience and knowledge of other yoga traditions and styles during the course.
