WHY DO THIS YOGA TEACHER TRAINING?
  • What other Yoga Teacher Training offers an authentic tour of the cremation grounds at Pashupati with an Aghori yogi?
  • The Nepal TTC is the only TTC in the world situated in a Tibetan Monastery. It’s a high-quality training for the discerning student with excellent teachers, but what really sets it apart from others is that you will study yoga philosophy ‘in situ,’ on location in Nepal, where ancient yogic traditions are still alive. You will feel supported in your practice by monks, priests, sadhus, and have a chance to visit temples and stupas and sacred sites.
  • Our training is designed to take you to the spiritual heart of the practice.
  • It’s a DOGMA FREE training with interesting, innovative teachers, all of whom are serious yoga practitioners with global reputations;
  • The course is for a small and select group of students. Students are given personal attention that is sensitive to their needs and ongoing development;
  • This is a transformative training where you’ll experience an authentic process that makes you look at your own reality, takes you deeper in your own practice, and gives you the skills to teach yoga. It will give you the capability to teach from your own experience and practical knowhow that are the stamp of an interesting teacher – someone with something to say about yoga practice because you have lived it. You can only teach what you know;
  • Hindu, Buddhist and contemporary yogic philosophy are taught in a way that lifts it ‘off the page’, and ‘off the mat,’ so you can integrate philosophy into your teaching and personal practice. The philosophy is relevant to both the physical experience and the spiritual practice. It is not an academic lesson, but a yogic inquiry relevant to real life;
  • Integrate ancient wisdom traditions with contemporary psychology into a mindful practice;
  • Practice Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga and watch your body/mind transform;
  • Get hands-on experience with adjustments (so you are prepared to work alongside someone in the real world);
  • Study BKS Iyengar alignment principles; learn techniques to breakdown difficult asanas (inversions, arm balances, backbends, etc) to teach ‘workshop style’;
  • Build movement vocabularies and learn to sequence Vinyasa Flow as a seamless ‘moving meditation’;
  • Practical Teaching: learn to demonstrate & adjust asanas; work in groups & individually to create a Vinyasa Flow sequences; structure & teach a yoga class; watch videos of your performance and get feedback from teachers & colleagues;
  • Learn how to teach basic Pranayama and Meditation; Restorative yoga;
  • Business of Yoga skills

Deciding to teach yoga should not be a career move. It should be a sincere calling deep within your heart. Yoga Teacher Training is an investment in the future. Being an inspired and excellent teacher involves much more than getting a certificate. It requires dedication, discipline and years of continuous practice. You must also have a true desire to serve others in order to communicate to your students the true essence of yoga. Establishing yourself as a teacher is a journey of many steps: start your journey here and become the teacher or practitioner you aspire to be.
