Kranti Yoga is delighted to offer you a 300h hrs residential course
accredited by the Yoga Alliance.
This residential 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course is a comprehensive Yoga Alliance approved program that runs over 4 weeks along with a Distance Learning Project to complete beforehand. The program is an intensive course that presents a fusion of Indian tradition and contemporary thinking in a fun and progressive environment.
Students must have already completed a 200-Hr YTTC either at Kranti Yoga or another Yoga Alliance registered school. If your 200 hour certification is not Ashtanga Yoga or Vinyasa Flow, it is advisable that you have an insight into both of these types of yoga.
- • deepen your knowledge of Vinyasa Flow and its surrounding philosophies.
- • know about the lineage of Vinyasa Flow and how it has evolved from the traditional practice of Ashtanga Yoga.
- • explore strength and flexibility of both yourself and your students, appreciating how to maintain the body’s natural bio-tensegrity.
- • understand the role of the myofascial connections throughout the body andtheir importance in sequencing a Vinyasa Flow Class.
- • design a Vinyasa Flow class incorporating the technicalities of a Peak Posture.
- • learn how to adjust postures with confidence.
- gain a contemporary insight into Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and commentaries of his sutras throughout the ages.
- • know about Ayurveda and how to bring about balance in everyday life.
- • develop mentoring skills that will facilitate differentiated teaching strategies.
Vinyasa Flow for the Fascial Body
Vinyasa Flow allows the body to move fluidly with continuity as we flow from posture to posture. This theory class will focus on the fascial connections throughout the body, looking at the function of the fascia and dealing with the body in totality. This is the anatomy of fascia. Students will compare traditional anatomy with contemporary thinking, considering how this applies to the practice of Vinyasa Flow. Studies will include mapping of the Superficial Front, Back and Side Lines; the Superficial Front and Back Arm Lines; the Spiral Lines. The module will provide an exploration of strength and flexibility for the fascial body. Students will understand the importance of bio-tensegrity and how to maintain the body's natural tensile structure when preparing a Vinyasa Flow Class.
An Exploration of Strength and Flexibility
Students will learn how to stretch and strengthen mindfully and with integrity. Techniques will include Yin Yoga, PNF and Trigger Point Yoga. For many different reasons, the fascial connections within the body get sticky, bringing about stiffness. This prevents access to postures. Stretching and strengthening techniques can help break down adhesions and promote better hydration of the body. This can have a positive effect on range of motion and mobility. Students will apply these techniques to teaching Vinyasa Flow.
These classes will take place in a workshop format and students will work within the realms of the integrated body, releasing the Myofascial Lines to deepen access to the more complex postures of Vinyasa Flow, including Supta Kurmasana and Marichyasnana D. Students will study the Superficial Front Line (for backbends;) Superficial Back Line (for forward folds;) Lateral Lines (for deep twists and Lotus Pose;) Back Arm Lines (for shoulder stability.)
This module will include a review of the skeletal muscular system from the 200 hr YTTC curriculum and provide the fundamentals to understanding the Anatomy of Fascia. Students will review origin, insertion, functionality and physiology of muscles. This module will look in details at the anatomy of the shoulder and the importance of building shoulder stability to support your yoga practice.
These classes will form part of the morning practice. Each class will have a technical focus that will work towards a peak posture. Classes will demonstrate how to incorporate stretching and strengthening techniques into a Vinyasa Flow Class, providing inspiration for you to create your own class as part of the Teaching Methodology program. Peak postures could include Eka Pada Sirsasana (Superficial Back Line,) Urdhva Dhanurasana (Superficial Front Line,) Chaturanga Dandasana (Front and Back Arm Lines), Hanumanasana (Spiral Line.) We will also explore the myofascial connections for postures such as Eka Pada Koundinyasa II, accommodating the complexities of such a posture in a Vinyasa Flow Class. The commentary will include important cueing to bring awareness to the anatomy of the fascial lines throughout the body, dealing with the body in totality.
Vinyasa Flow Teaching Methodology
The fundamental aim of this module is to advance your teaching skills, adding depth and technicalities to what you are already teaching. Students will create a dynamic Vinyasa Flow Class that will achieve a peak posture through stretching and strengthening techniques. Students will also learn how to teach a class on multiple levels so that all students are challenged sufficiently in every class. Assessment of this module will be through Peer Teaching which will facilitate a sharing of each other’s ideas. The module is linked to the Vinyasa Flow Classes that will be taught by the Lead Trainer during morning practice.
Adjustments for Vinyasa Flow
Adjustments provide deeper access into postures and allow students to gain insight into new postures. Adjustments need to be managed carefully and with confidence. Different body types will be taken into consideration along with the importance of the student teacher rapport. Students will practice adjustments as part of the morning practice. They will adjust peers during practice with feedback given during and after the session. Learning adjustments is a 'hands on' process and so will be closely supervised by the Lead Trainer.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga
This class will lead students through the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga as prescribed by Sri K. Patthabi Jois. On selected days, this will form part of the morning practice. Students will learn an abbreviated version of the series in order that they can make the connection between Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Vinyasa Flow. This class will allow students to understand how the contemporary style of Vinyasa Flow has been derived from this traditional sequence. Students will progress to Self-Practice Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga where they will guide themselves through the series while the Lead Trainer corrects postures and gives advice on correct alignment. Students will be encouraged to practice with reference to the anatomy of the fascial body.
- • Peer teach a 1.5 -hour Vinyasa Flow to peers
- • Pass a written and practical and test on the anatomy of the alignment of the Primary Series
- • Demonstrate the correct adjustments of postures
- • Create Myofascial Release plans for peers
- • Pass a written test in Yoga Philosophy
Moonlight/Candlelight/Om Meditation, Yoga Movies, Local Festivals and Japa Yoga.
