In turn, you will learn how to imbibe these philosophies into your own life and will experience unison of the body, mind, and soul.

Pranayama, bandha, mudra:

Pranayama, or the science of breath control, is one of the Five Principles of Yoga. It expands lung capacity and relaxes the nervous system by balancing the two hemispheres of the brain. The art of Kapalabhati (lung cleansing exercise), Anuloma Viloma (alternate nostril breathing) and Samanu (mental cleansing of the nadis) will be taught.

Focusing on the rhythm of your breathing and becoming familiar with it is the essence of pranayama. This is a vital feature of yoga and is often neglected as most give more importance to physical practice. Pranayama is an excellent way to destress, build spiritual and emotional power, and sustain a healthy life each day.


Cleansing will purify the system and allow the breath to run easily. Our 200 Hour Yoga teacher training course bali includes explanation and demonstration of Tratak, Neti, Kapalabhati, Dhauti, Nauli, and other purification exercises for the various parts of the body such as the eyes, nose, air passages, esophagus and stomach, abdominal organs and large intestine exercises. We will look into the effect of each practice and understand their individual instructions.

Yoga Anatomy:

Through an introduction to the major body systems you will study the effects of asanas and pranayama on the cardiovascular system, muscular systems, digestion, skeletal, respiration and endocrine system. These classes will give you a deeper understanding by observing the mechanism of every posture.

Our purpose is to give you knowledge of anatomy so that you leave with a better awareness of your own body and can apply this knowledge to teaching yoga in a safe manner. During the lessons, you will lay emphasis on how to adapt your practice by recognizing your weaknesses. These may be due to a lack of strength or flexibility in a particular area. You will learn preparation techniques to make improvements in your practice.  Throughout the classes, our assistant teachers provide you with complete personal attention to support you.

Centering Yourself:
Your transformation journey begins with a daily exploration of yourself! This course is about Self Growth and includes coaching tools to take with you and apply to your life and future career as a yoga teacher.

Teaching Techniques and Practice Teaching:
In these hours you will learn and practice valuable tools and teaching methodology that will support you in becoming a powerful teacher. You will imbibe the ability to address a large group as well as learn to connect with each student in your class. You will explore the use of your voice, language, body language, visualization, ability to connect with your students confidently through verbal cues, the use of props, effective demonstration, and acute observation with safe and effective physical adjustments.
