In short

Matsyasana 1

The 2-year yoga teacher train­ing course gives you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to achieve great per­son­al change and dis­cov­er your full poten­tial. Dur­ing this time you may have deep expe­ri­ences and grad­u­al­ly come clos­er to your true nature.

You devel­op all aspects of your per­son­al­i­ty: body, ener­gy, feel­ings, thoughts and intu­ition (cor­re­spond­ing to the five kosha’s from yoga phi­los­o­phy). The pro­gram offers enough space to inter­nal­ize the the­o­ry and to bring it into prac­tice. You will start to do things that seemed impos­si­ble to you before.

The first year is a sys­tem­at­ic train­ing of all aspects of your per­son­al­i­ty and cre­ates a sol­id foun­da­tion for your own prac­tice and teach­ing.

The sec­ond year includes the deep­en­ing of your own prac­tice and the study of clas­si­cal yoga scrip­tures (Bha­gavad Gita, Hatha Yoga Pradipi­ka and the Yoga Sutras). Human anato­my, phys­i­ol­o­gy, and kine­mat­ics are also cov­ered. You learn the basics of teach­ing yoga with empha­sis on: Begin­ners, inter­me­di­ate, advanced and mixed groups, yoga for the back, yoga for preg­nan­cy, yoga for kids, yoga for seniors, pos­si­bil­i­ties and lim­its of yoga ther­a­py. Through teach­ing each oth­er in small groups with pro­fes­sion­al super­vi­sion you will col­lect valu­able teach­ing expe­ri­ences.
