What type of yoga will we be learning?
The focus of the course is Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow, with little variations/modifications. The evening asana practice is more focused on the slow, deep and steady style of hatha yoga and yin with more meditative attitude, other asana classes will include specific back bending and vinyasa classes.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alignment: There is a lot of emphasis on the postural alignments rather than trying to achieve a posture by forcing the body and therefore compromising the alignment.

This is a mixed level course, suitable for intermediate and existing teachers.
Beginners most welcome if they are ready to take this course more as an intensive learning opportunity and to deepen their practice and understanding, rather than becoming a teacher in one month. Everyone who successfully completes the course will be certified to teach afterwards.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who is eligible for this course?
Anyone who is interested in learning ancient Indian system of yoga and its applied science with the ability to follow the instructions and lectures in English are welcomed.
