YOGA ASANA & VINYASA CURRICULUM

1. Yoga Asana

The asana study program includes postures of the Primary and Intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga, presented in a traditional, yet non-dogmatic way. You will gain an overview of the posture categories (forward + backward bending, twists + side bends, inversions + arm balances. In addition to learning the traditional asana, you will learn healthy adaptations, modifications, and therapeutic sequencing.

  • Learn to see alignment in postures
  • Decode the language of modern yoga alignment; loops, rotations, pose – counterpose.
  • Creative sequencing in yoga classes
  • Traditional sequencing in yoga classes
  • Restorative asana
  • Asana pronunciation
  • Tristana Method (vinyasa, bandha, drishti)

2. Pranayama

Asana is considered the external yoga while meditation is the internal, breath is the intermediary between the two. The Pranayama training includes a progression from preparatory work including kriya (cleansing) and basic breathwork, through more advanced breathing sequences. Naturally, yoga breathing leads to meditation and the internal practice of yoga.

  • Yoga cleansing practice (kriya)
  • Yoga breathing (pranayama)
  • Yoga mantra meditation
  • Yoga mindfulness meditation

3. Teaching Methodology

The art of teaching yoga is a unique discipline. As a teacher, your job is to meet your students where they are “at” in their practice. This requires a mixture of inspirational leadership, effective communication, and patience. Excellent teachers recognize different learning styles, know how to prepare for classes, and how to adapt those plans when needed.

  • Planning & leading classes
  • Communication
  • Demonstration
  • Empathy
  • Learning styles

4. Anatomy

  • Science of stretching and flexibility
  • Building strength in yoga

5.Hours Hands-On Adjustments

One of the distinguishing features of YTT with Adarsh is his expertise in Hands-on adjustments. When skillfully applied, physical and verbal assistance can help students quickly improve:

  • Body mechanics for the teacher
  • How to receive adjustments
  • The three types of adjustments
  • General vs. Specific adjustments
  • The role of subtle energy in adjustments
  • Student safety

6. Hours Yoga History & Philosophy

  • Yoga Timeline
  • Yoga Lineage (parampara)
  • Yoga Sutra of Patanjali

2021

I've been practicing Ashtanga yoga for the last ten years. I met Adarsh in Taiwan Space yoga. He is an authentic and knowledgeable yoga teacher with an easy going and very positive personality. The atmosphere of the mysore room led by Adarsh is always relaxing and non-competitive making the practice so much easier and fun. His incredible and intelligent adjustments amazed me each time because they were so gentle and effortless but yet extremely precise and effective. Even with advanced postures, I was able to go deeper and be more open in a very safe and calming way under his adjustments. 

Adarsh's enthusiasm, continuous dedication and study of ashtanga yoga inspired me to keep on my practice as well. Ashtanga yoga can be demanding yet rewarding built upon discipline, which I personally find the key to success.  I'm very thankful for all the classes I could spend with Adarsh.

2020

“At the end of an immersion students usually want to leave at the end of the day and go home to rest, play etc. At this training, every student just wanted to stay and absorb more of the knowledge and continue to experience the special feeling of the shared Yoga. It was extraordinary!”

---KATHY HENDERSON, RYT200
