What will you learn as you become a certified Yoga teacher?
Philosophy of Yoga
Yoga is so much more than postures and movements (Asana’s). There is a whole philosophy to it of living life more consciously.
In Yoga philosophy, there are 8 limbs of Yoga that guide you to awakening. A journey that is unique to each soul on the yogic path. The limbs are
- YAMA – Restraints, moral disciplines, or moral vows. How we act externally in the world.
- NIYAMA – Positive duties or observances. How we act internally in the world.
- ASANA – Posture. Movements and postures. The most well-known part of Yoga in the western world.
- PRANAYAMA – Breathing Techniques. Giving us a deeper connection to ourselves, others and the planet.
- PRATYAHARA – Sense withdrawal. Interacting with the world through what you sense and feel.
- DHARANA – Focused Concentration. Learning to calm the mind with focused concentration.
- DHYANA – Meditative Absorption.
- SAMADHI – Bliss or Enlightenment.
As you move through your yoga teacher training journey, you will learn through your own experiences and reflections how the 8 limbs of Yoga are working in your life, and how you can enhance the way you move in the world, not just on your mat but off your mat in the real world as well.
Asana’s (movements and postures) are only one aspect of leading a more conscious life as a Yogi.
In the Yoga Instructor Course you will learn how to integrate the 8 limbs of yoga into your daily life as well as look closely at the postures (Asana’s) and how to use the postures to open up the body, release deep tension, energetic and emotional blocks, calm and center the mind. You will also develop a personal practice that supports your growth and learn how to assist others to develop a holistic yoga practice that supports them individually and, in a classroom, collectively.
This course also takes a deep look at anatomy and physiology, how the body moves and functions. You will also dive deep into Health, including how to work with the Australian health system and collaborate with allied health professionals. Including interpreting medical terminology, noticing red and yellow flag (warning signs of dis-ease and imbalance) in your clients and which health professionals to refer them to for support.
