Students can fulfill the entire Yoga teacher training certification training in a true intensive immersion format at NaturOville Yogpeeth.

There are many opinions about whether a student should take more time between the level 1 - 200 hour program and the level 2 - 300 hour program. For those who have completed our full 500 hour program, most would agree that having nearly two months of immersed study and yoga /meditation practice, the experience has been nothing short of life changing. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali states that its important to feed the mind so we may be more faithful in our dedication to its processes, but no amount of intellectual study can compare to the knowledge we receive through sustained and uninterrupted practice.

Students who enroll in the 0 to 500 training program receive an additional $300 USD discount toward their accommodation package selection and tuition for the 200 and 300 hour yoga teacher training programs of their choice. This is the fastest way to complete all your Yoga teacher training course requirements.

That being said, if you have a regular yoga practice, you may be more ready than you think. We are looking for participants with a solid foundation in the basic and fundamental yoga postures. It is important to engage this training with a level of maturity, and willingness to learn guided by the natural limits of your own body.

THE PROGRAM SYLLABUS INCLUDES:



Anatomy and Physiology of Yoga - In this advanced course we will review the key postures of yoga practice and their safe anatomical alignment, health benefits, adjustments, and useful modifications. Our main focus, however, will be to thoroughly explore them from an energetic perspective. Understanding how each posture works as a key ingredient of a master recipe is one of the most important aspects of developing your skills beyond the physical concept of yoga and establishing yourself as a master teacher.

History + Philosophy (Darshan) + Tradition -All too often, the essential teachings of the sages gets lost in translation. This course will offer very thorough examination of yoga and its essential philosophies such as Samkhya; the foundational philosophy of Hatha Yoga, Classical Yoga (Yoga as defined by Pantanjali), Ayurveda and Tantra. We will cover in depth various traditions, primarily those of Hatha, Tantra and Vinyasa yoga, the theory behind their practice, helping you bridge the gap between the timeless wisdom of the ancients and yoga for modern living.

The Science of Yogic Breathing -Although the yogic breath is understood in traditional yoga as the quintessential element of its practice, it is rarely taught in yoga classes today. We'll share you this magical method of breathing that will awaken a whole new level of transformational experience to your practice of yoga.

Prana, Chakras - There are many layers to understanding Prana, the prime life force and how it moves through the bodily framework of the Chakras. We will investigate this force in detail and how the currents of energy known as prana vayus are the very foundation of what makes yoga work.

The Art and Science of Sequencing - Understand how and why Yoga works. You will learn how to use the tools of asana, dharana, pranayama, bandha and meditation to create your own meaningful sequences.
