Intermediate Yoga Teacher Training 500 hours

Kranti Yoga School is delighted to offer you 500 hrs 2nd  Level Intermediate Residential Course accredited by Yoga Alliance .

Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow

This 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course is a comprehensive Yoga Alliance approved program that runs over 5 weeks.  It follows on from the 200 hour YTTC.  You will complete a further 300 hours to receive your 500 hour YTTC qualification.  The course is designed to further your development as both a yoga teacher and practitioner.  It is an intensive and rigorous course that is designed to further your yoga teaching career as you deepen your understanding of different styles of yoga and their theories.

You are eligible for the course if you want to:

1. further your career as a yoga teacher.

2. teach and be taught by peers, learning and sharing from each other.

3. set up your own classes and have the opportunity to teach in our shala.

4. deepen your understanding of all aspects of yoga including  Pranayama, Meditation, Mudras, Kriyas and Philosophy.

5. commit to an intensive practice for 5 weeks, immersing into a yogic and Ayurvedic lifestyle.

6. assist the senior teachers in our school and act as a mentor to students on the 200 hour YTTC.


Your own personal practice of Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow is crucial during this course.  You will continue to practice Primary Series, Mysore Style.  If appropriate, you will also be introduced to The Intermediate Series and the correct alignment of the intermediate postures.  Workshops will continue to develop your techniques in Hip Opening, Jump Back and Back Bending.  These workshops are particularly rewarding in terms of measuring the visible progress that you have made.  Not only will you develop your own practice during these sessions, you will without doubt pick up helpful ideas to take with you to develop your own students in these areas.  

Your daily practice will also include daily Pranayama.  This program is co-ordinated with Pranayama tutorials that run throughout the 5 weeks.  You will learn about the breathing exercises during your tutorials and then use them as part of your daily practice.  You will really see how your practice grows as you learn more breathing exercises to benefit the different areas of your body.  Pranayama Classes, along with Kriyas, will form part of your daily morning practice and will be delivered in our beachside shala, overlooking the Arabian Ocean. 
Adjustment is a key feature of Ashtanga Yoga and can only be learnt with a sound knowledge of alignment.  As part of your training, you will be required to adjust your fellow teacher trainees on a weekly basis as you gain an insight into adjustments and body mechanics.  This will really help you become more aware of anatomy and physiology as you become involved in helping your peers make progress with their own practice.
Classical yogic philosophy is interwoven throughout the program, drawing on Vedic and Tantric beliefs.  You will study influential texts including Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras with tutorials designed to encourage discussion and debate around these philosophies.  This, along with Yogic Lifestyle studies, encourages you to question and challenge your own lifestyle choices in order to improve your overall sense of wellbeing.

Teaching Methodology will really give you the opportunity to develop skills to teach different styles of yoga.  You will devise your own classes in not just Ashtanga Yoga and Vinyasa Flow but also Pranayama, Meditation, Yoga Nidra and Restorative Yoga.    From the first week, you will be teaching and be taught by your peers.  As you progress, we will create opportunities for you to teach classes to your peers.  We have three teaching spaces within the yoga complex and so have the facilities to allow you to develop as a teacher within our shala.  Some of our most successful graduates started teaching at Kranti Yoga during their 500 hour course and have gone on to become senior teachers on the YTTC.  Your development as a teacher is a benchmark of our success as your trainers.  Learning to instruct, demonstrate, motivate, be inclusive and adapt to individual needs of your students is a key part of the course and can only be developed by delivering your own classes and getting constructive feedback.  This part of the course is taken very seriously and can be particularly rewarding to you in terms of raising your profile as a yoga teacher internationally.  Beyond the course, there are often opportunities for graduates to work with us in the shala, should you want to lengthen your stay in Patnem.
This program is an intensive course that is presented in a fun, relaxed, modern and progressive approach.  Students should be prepared to be mentally and physically challenged. Classes vary from physically vigorous workshops to softer, restorative afternoon classes. Students are encouraged and invited to explore their own needs as individuals so that they can deepen their own practice and indeed the practice of their future students.  We look forward to welcoming you into our yoga shala.
