Teacher Training Curriculum
The course of study consists of a set of courses that allow you to achieve various degrees of training in the major forms of Yoga.
Each level of training you reach provides the necessary improvement of your personal practice and your teaching skills.
Our courses bring you closer to the sources of the Eastern tradition. You will have a personal growth experience, a basic foundation of the practices, and the necessary pedagogy. You will be introduced to the philosophy of Yoga, its terms and basic vocabulary in Sanskrit**.
The First Course "Instructor" is completed once you successfully finish a Level I or II training.
The Second Course "Teacher" is completed once you successfully finish a Level III or IV training.
The Third Course "Postgrad" is completed once you successfully finish three (3) postgrad modules.
These Levels relate to each of the Yoga styles and training courses that you can take, either as an intensive residential course or throughout the year.
