Course syllabus for 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training:-
Hatha yoga was created as a total life philosophy that incorporated how we relate to our world, to ourselves and how we can attain inner peace. The Sanskrit word ha means “sun” and tha means “moon,” and thus hatha, or literally sun-moon yoga, strives to balance opposing parts of the physical body, the front and back, left and right, top and bottom, balancing our masculine (pingala) and feminine(Ida) nadis to achieve inner peace and happiness. With this goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. In this course we will see a wide hatha yoga postures, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation in all the organs, glands, and tissues. Hatha yoga postures also stretch and align the body, promoting balance and flexibility.

Ashtanga yoga is different in the sense that the postures are set. We do the exact same sequence each time we practice. Then we advance to the next series after we’ve mastered the first. In fact, there are a total of six series in Ashtanga — the first (or primary) series, the second (or intermediate) series and then four advanced series that follow. In the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, breath (Ujjayi breathing) is united with flowing movement and the attention to gazing points (Dristi) to create a meditative and purifying style of yoga.

The practice of conscious energy breathing would be used for self-healing, self-discovery, and spiritual exploration. Connected breathing will help to heal old emotional wounds and trauma, release blocked energy, and open up new possibilities for personal growth and spiritual awakening. It can also provide us with a direct experience of the Divine, and allow us to access a deeper level of understanding and connection with ourselves and with the world around us.
Energy breathing sessions are safe and natural. The Session can be in group or individual. The process is gentle and the effects are profound and long-lasting. The results are an increase in energy, clarity, intuition, and creativity. The body is filled with vital energy and the mind is bright and clear. This is an incredible way to experience the living presence of the source. Conscious energy breathing helps us to be present in the moment and to be more aware of our own energy. We can learn to create more balance and harmony in our lives.
By consciously breathing energy, we can get in touch with the source of our true self—the inner source of our life energy. As we do this, we can learn to regulate and direct our energy in positive ways. This can help us to manifest our goals and intentions, to create a life of abundance, and to live in harmony with ourselves and our environment. We can also use this energy to help heal ourselves and others.
