Course Curriculum


Pranayama, the formal practice of controlling the breath, lies at the heart of yoga. It has a mysterious power to soothe and revitalize a tired body, a flagging spirit, or a wild mind. The ancient sages taught that prana, the vital force circulating through us, can be cultivated and channeled through various breathing exercises. In the process, the mind is calmed, rejuvenated, and uplifted. Pranayama serves as an important bridge between the outward, active practices of yoga—like asana—and the internal, surrendering practices that lead us into deeper states of meditation.

Yoga Anatomy & Ayurveda

Anatomy: Learn & study the structure of the human body, including gross anatomy, an overview of tissue and organ systems. It will also cover the study of principles of movement, their application to yoga practice, and benefits and contraindications, which include healthy movement patterns.

Ayurveda: one of the world’s oldest holistic (whole-body) healing systems. It was developed thousands of years ago in India. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. The primary focus of Ayurvedic medicine is to promote good health, rather than fight disease

Practice Teaching

Emphasis will be placed on preparing the teacher trainee for the actual practice of teaching a class. Each student will have multiple opportunities to lead small groups of their fellow trainees through several consecutive postures and learn thematic approaches to teaching. The practice teaching sessions will be followed by feedback sessions with lead instructors and training assistants.

Chakras & The Emotional Body

What is a Chakra? The word is Sanskrit for wheels or disc. It refers to seven areas of the body that align with the spine. In these discs we store information according to our belief systems. Those that were passed down through the generations and those of our own. Having knowledge about these chakras gives us the ability to be more at ease within our bodies. It also helps us to understand how dis-ease manifests in the body when there is an overload of a belief that is out of balance with what is true. Learning the chakras and how they work, help to determine our health in mind, body and spirit and is an excellent way to pursue happiness and balance in our lives.
