Although intensive, the course is presented with a traditional approach to yoga. It is a stepping stone towards becoming a yoga teacher and the training itself will give you a solid foundation in traditional Ashtanga Yoga as described by sage Patanjali with a focus on all the different aspects of yoga – Asana, Pranayama, Philosophy, Anatomy & Physiology, Yogic Culture, Sanskrit, Ayurveda, Pedagogy (method and practice of teaching), Sadhana.
However, you are expected and encouraged to further continue your learning process as Yoga is a vast subject and this program would make you even more aware of all the future possibilities in terms of learning and choosing your area of interest or specialization.
Through this program, you will be able to explore the ancient wisdom of yoga philosophy and gain valuable ways to share this and positively impact the lives of others. You will also get the chance to deepen your understanding and competency in the anatomy of the energetic body. Aside from that, you will also discover the incredible effects of Ayurvedic nutrition and lifestyle.
This program will also teach you to lead profoundly transformative practices for others, assist you in establishing a nourishing spiritual practice and discovering the impact on your life, and expose you to deeply healing yogic practices that are not traditionally shared in the West.
Satya: Commitment to truthfulness
Satya means “to speak the truth,” yet it is not always desirable to speak the truth on all occasions, for it could harm someone unnecessarily. We have to consider what we say, how we say it, and in what way it could affect others. If speaking the truth has negative consequences for another, then it is better to say nothing. Satya should never come into conflict with our efforts to behave with ahimsa. This precept is based on the understanding that honest communication and action form the bedrock of any healthy relationship, community, or government, and that deliberate deception, exaggerations, and mistruths harm others.

प्रत्याहार (Pratyahara) – withdrawal of senses from the external experiences
Pratyahara means drawing back or retreat. The word ahara means “nourishment”; pratyahara translates as “to withdraw oneself from that which nourishes the senses.” In yoga, the term pratyahara implies withdrawal of the senses from attachment to external objects. It can then be seen as the practice of non-attachment to sensorial distractions as we constantly return to the path of self realization and achievement of internal peace. It means our senses stop living off the things that stimulate; the senses no longer depend on these stimulants and are not fed by them anymore.
