What Will You Learn?

Connect with yoga on a deeper level than you ever have before and truly live a yogic life – body, mind and spirit. Notice changes to your whole being as you journey through the course – and discover how to use your experience to guide others in the practice of yoga.

Comprising of 21 highly-detailed modules, the 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Diploma Course includes illustrated explanations, video demonstrations, and audio guidance – providing a significant amount of learning and practice.

“What is yoga?”. The course begins by answering that very question – considering its roots, evolution, and modern practice. We’ll also look at yoga’s benefits, styles, and what it means to live a yogic life.

We’ll dive into yoga philosophy by looking at the important texts – Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and Hatha Yoga Pradipika, and exploring the differences and similarities between them. The course discusses the three gunas that make up all matter in the universe – how they manifest in our lives and how to balance them. We’ll also explore the concept of the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine – the traits associated with each and how they can be balanced.

We will learn the basic anatomy associated with yoga practice – becoming familiar with the parts of the body that are most susceptible to injury and how to protect them. You’ll also learn the basics of energy anatomy – gaining an understanding of the different systems and structures of the subtle body and how they can be cleansed.

It’s then onto the practical side of yoga, as you are guided through the Sun Salutation sequences practised by Ashtanga Vinyasa yogis—Sun Salutation A and Sun Salutation B – and the sequence practised by Hatha yogis, along with the Moon Salutation sequence.

The course will take you through a detailed range of asana poses, learning their contraindications and modifications. These include standing asanas, forward folds and core strengthening asanas, warm-up and deep stretching poses, twists, backbends, and techniques for the safe practice of inversions.

You’ll be introduced to pranayama, including how to perform bandhas, techniques for meditating, and instruction on performing mudras. You’ll also learn some mantras and chants.

The course provides an introduction to effective sequencing for those who want to teach or simply to have a good home practice. We’ll look at how to sequence a class, the practice of demonstrations and using voice and commands effectively. You’ll learn how to structure a yoga class and deliver effective teaching in group and one-to-one classes.

You’ll be introduced to the sister science of yoga, Ayurveda. The course covers the basic concepts including the five elements, the three doshas (and how they can be balanced) and the six tastes.

For those looking to take their practice further, we’ll consider the business of yoga, with discussions on ethics and spirituality, and what your offering as a yoga teacher will be.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the philosophies and practices of yoga
  • Understand basic physical and energy anatomy
  • Learn how to practice sun salutations, asanas, pranayamas, meditations, mantras and mudras
  • Be familiar with effective sequencing and teaching techniques
  • Learn about running a yoga business
