YOGAYUR LIFE TEACHER TRAINING: MUCH MORE THAN A TEACHER TRAINING
NEW ONLINE MODULE BEGINNING 2nd MAY
Yoga is a discipline whose practice is not limited to hours spent perfecting asana and pranayama. Yoga is a way of life, an inner journey, a way of dealing with everyday life, social relationships and the relationship with oneself.
Practicing Yoga means to live it every day and in every moment, letting yourself be guided by the wisdom that the Masters have codified and transmitted to the present day. Yoga is the corollary that embraces and brings a deeper meaning to one's daily life.
A leap in the quality of life for every enthusiast of this marvelous discipline takes place when one takes Yoga out of the practice room and incorporates it into one's own life: this is why we have created YogAyur Life Teacher Training.
A training course that, in addition to providing the participants with all the theoretical and practical skills necessary for teaching Yoga, will accompany them on a journey of awareness and self-rediscovery.
The course is recognized by Yoga Alliance, and qualifies for the RYT 250h certificate
Given the extraordinary current situation, we’ve decided, in accordance with Yoga Alliance, to begin the training online to recover the weekend in April, and possibly also the one in May, with 8-hour meetings on the following dates:
Saturday 2nd May
Saturday 16th May
Saturday 30th May
Saturday 13th May
The hours listed above will be an integral part of the course in order to reach the 250 hours of training. As soon as it’s allowed, the course will resume in its ‘live’ mode as scheduled with one intensive weekend per month, Saturday and Sunday, from 10:00 to 19:00.
To complete the number of hours, at least 8 monthly hours of practice are required at YogAyur centers (already practicable in a virtual way) and participation in an intensive 4-day retreat in August or on another date to be defined.
The training course includes an in-depth study of all the theoretical/practical aspects of yoga and meditation, which will be taught through the themed workshops, in-depth study of theory, as well as numerous hours of practice to perfect the technique.
The yoga style taught will be Hatha Yoga Flow, a traditional style complemented by a dynamic that makes it similar to Vinyasa. Classical positions (Asanas) as well as more dynamic sequences will be learned. Sun Salutation, Pranayama, Mantra, devotional Bhakti Yoga and Karma Yoga together with meditation and mindfulness techniques will be among the teachings that the participants will learn.
In order to better assist students on their journey, we have included a biweekly subscription to our two Yoga centers (located in Rome in the Piramide and Monti area), with the possibility to benefit once a month from a counseling consultation to monitor and check the performance during the training.
The topics covered during the lessons will focus on:
- Philosophy and history of Yoga: origin of Hatha yoga, the 8 limbs of yoga according to Patanjali, man, chakras and harmonization
- Asana: basic asana and Sanskrit nomenclature; rooting and balance; dynamic sequences of asanas; twists and inversions; variations, modifications and practical adjustments of asanas; potential risks that may arise during practice
- Meditation techniques: Vipassana, mindfulness meditation, listening to silence, techniques of sense withdrawal, division of attention and concentration
- Pranayama and Breathing: breath, mantra and devotional chanting; pranayama techniques
- Diet and purification techniques
- Sexuality: managing sexual energy, introduction to Tantra
- Self-confidence, inversions and balance positions
- Spirituality, channeling of Kundalini, freedom from one's limiting patterns
YogAyur Life Teacher Training is much more than a course for yoga teachers: it’s the authentic possibility to rediscover your potential and begin living each day with awareness and new guidance.
At the end of the course, after having completed the hours of class practice and passed the exam, the Yoga Alliance RYT250 certificate will be awarded, valid for the conversion to CSEN diploma (body recognized by CONI) with the Yoga Gymnastics Instructor qualification.
