Hatha Yoga is considered to be the foundation of all yogic asana practices which sprout from its fundamental nature for creating a balance between the mind and body by accessing the inner roots of our being. This form of yoga plays a huge importance to breathing techniques.
Our regular Hatha Yoga teacher training in India comprises relatively paced practice of various hatha yoga postures, breathing awareness and techniques, and meditation practices. All of our classes begin and conclude with mantra chanting.
The practice of traditional Hatha yoga is aimed at balancing your body and stilling your mind, so it can be trained to stay healthy and keep away from external distractions that may hamper your practice. A Hatha Yoga TTC in India practitioner ultimately cultivates a subtle consciousness within the body that assists in nurturing a meditative form.
500 hour multi style yoga teacher training in Rishikesh. follow the ancient tradition of Ashtanga Yoga as popularized by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Traditionally, yoga helps you in completely knowing yourself and calm yourself. However, this real meaning can get a bit lost amidst the practices of exercise-centric yoga that seems to be very popular nowadays. Ashtanga yoga courses in India, on the other hand, brings modern-day yogis back to the ancient roots of yogic practice.
Pattabhi’s Ashtanga yoga comprises a fixed series of postures linked together with breath. Unlike modern-day yoga practices, the Ashtanga sequence of postures remains the same, and the practice is traditionally performed without music, mood lighting, or other factors of the western yoga class. By taking away these external factors, Ashtanga Yoga TTC India practitioners are able to streamline their attention inward, focusing on the internal aspects of yoga rather than the physical.
During our Ashtanga yoga teacher training in India, we teach the whole primary series including rules of sequencing, pranayama, mantra chanting as well as drishti and bandha.
Often confused with ‘power yoga’, Vinyasa Yoga is a modern, fast-paced practice inspired from the Ashtanga Vinyasa system and the highly-revered Guru T. Krishnamacharya himself. This style of yoga is characterized by easing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using the synchronization of breath and drishti.
The primary difference between Ashtanga and Vinyasa is that while the former follows a fixed sequence, the latter observes flowing of each pose organically and has no specific sequence. The dynamic nature of Vinyasa Yoga helps to acquire a more balanced body as well as prevent recurring motion injuries.
During our 500 hour yoga training program in Vinyasa practice, we focus primarily on training you in sharp sequencing that not only strengthens your body but also allows the energy to smoothly flow through. Our ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teacher training India is taught keeping in mind the principles of alignment, meaning that even though you will move between postures swiftly, you would be taught safe practices so as to avoid any injuries.
Completely opposite to the vigorous, fast-paced Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga styles, Yin Yoga focuses on the deep connective tissues of your body – the ligaments, bones, joints, and deep fascia networks. It’s gentler and more contemplative, allowing you space to turn inward and tune into your mind as well as the physical sensations of your body. In Yin Yoga, you hold your postures for a longer period than other traditional forms which means that you would stretch and lengthen those barely-used tissues as well as learn how to control you breathing through any discomfort.
On an energetic level, Yin yoga enhances energy flow and improves the flow of ‘chi’ in the organs but the practice also offers huge mental and emotional benefits too.
Usually, our Yin Yoga class includes of a series of passive floor asanas held for a longer duration, that primary focuses on the lower part of the body, namely the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are specifically rich in connective tissues.
Mysore style yoga is the conventional way of practicing ashtanga yoga and offers an extremely personalized approach with all of the group energy of a conventional class. This style is different than any other method of teaching yoga in the way that during practice, the class is not instructed as a whole but it is more one-on-one training within the group.
At S V Yoga School, we learn Mysore style yoga every Saturday where you practice your own part of Ashtanga sequence of asanas at you own pace while the teacher assists each one of you individually by giving verbal as well as physical instructions on how to adjust and align your movements to get the best out of them.
Breathing is the first as well as the last thing we do in life. It is the only constant in our lives. However, regular stressors, worries and physical habits can lead to physical and energetic hindrances in our bodies. And, without even realizing it, our breathing gradually becomes light or unnatural and we develop unconscious dysfunctional breathing patterns that limit the flow of breath and prana.
When we work on liberating and controlling our breath through pranayama practices, we also allow the life energy to flow smoothly through the body. This kind of controlled and mindful breathing has the effect of revitalizing, calming and restoring the body, letting everything fall into its right place. At the same time, during our meditation classes, we also highlight the importance of correct breathing in coordination with asanas practice.
