Structure of the 200h Training:
The training is divided into four modules, each of which lasts for one week, from Monday to Friday. Each module concludes with a self-reflection test.
Module 1 - History and Philosophy of Kundalini & Hatha Yoga:
In the first module, we explore the foundation of yoga philosophy by delving into the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, The Bhagavad Gita, and the Ishavasya Upanishad.
We aim to answer the question, "What is yoga?" and contemplate what yoga means to us in modern times.
We also examine how Hatha Yoga has evolved from the ancient tantra of Kundalini Yoga and explore significant spiritual and historical milestones.
Module 2 - Yogic Anatomy, Chakras, Koshas, Prana, and Western Anatomy:
The second module uncovers the inner world of yoga, a world of vision and magic. We journey to the Tantras and read the Sat Chakra Nirupana, and learn exercises to access our inner worlds.
We discover sound as the goddess, the states of individual perception, and prana as the river of life, as well as exploring Western anatomy.
Module 3 - Class Design, Didactics, Asana, and Kriya:
The third module focuses on the art of teaching yoga, class design, and the didactics that enhance teaching. We learn how to create a natural flow in our classes and how to develop our talents in the expression of yoga.
We also study the Pavanmuktasana, Sukshma Vyayam, important 42 asanas, and kriyas.
Module 4 - Bandha, Mudra, Pranayama, and Meditation:
In the fourth module, we explore the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Goraksha Shataka, two texts that deal with Kundalini Yoga and basic techniques such as bandha, mudra, and breathing techniques.
We also explore meditation and the Vjnana Bhairava Tantra in this context.
