The Program

200 hours Yoga Teacher Training program at Upaya Yoga, Bali is design and aim at producing skilled and motivating yoga teachers who are proficient in the ancient science of yoga and can have a better understanding of teaching yoga.

The 200 hours yoga teacher training syllabus is based on four important aspects of yoga i.e. Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Mantra Yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow and the course structure is prepared under the guidelines of Yoga Alliance 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training Course.

Ashtanga Yoga

Flow is the keyword of Ashtanga Yoga because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. The word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way”. In vinyasa yoga, each movement is synchronized to a breath. The breath is given primacy, acting as an anchor as you move from one pose to the next. Read More

Hatha Yoga

Balancing the physical and mental force of the body is the key word of Hatha Yoga. The word hatha is composed of two syllables, namely ha and tha. Ha means the ‘sun’ and tha means the ‘moon’. Yoga means communion. Thus hatha yoga means the harmony between the sun and moon aspects of our being. Health is the fundamental aim of hatha yoga. Health can be defined as a combination of the following: Read More

Raja Yoga (Patanjali Yoga Sutra)

Path of introspection is the key word of Raja Yoga. It is the path in which one attempts to explore the different realms of the mind: conscious, subconscious, unconscious. Raja yoga progressively attempts to transcend the outer environment of the physical body, and direct the awareness to the inner environment. Patanjali yoga is often identified with raja yoga directly, for they are regarded as synonymous. Read More

Mantra Yoga

Sound is the keyword of Mantra Yoga. Sound is the primordial form of energy, the original substance and basis of the whole universe. This universe with its solar systems, its invisible fields of energy, is an expansion of sound energy. This sound is known as ‘shabda’ in Yoga, ‘the word’ in the Bible, and ‘mantra’ in the Tantric System. Sound has different stages of manifestations. Read More

Techniques, Training And Practice

Yoga is experienced by practising this science. This course paper takes the student into the journey of the practical world of yoga where the subjective experience manifests which makes the foundation of yoga.

Following are the yogic practices which are included in this paper:

Shatkarmas

The shatkarmas consist of six groups of purification practices. The aim of hatha yoga, and therefore of the shatkarmas, is to create harmony between the two major pranic flows, Ida and Pingala, resulting in physical and mental purification and balance.

Asana

The first condition of human happiness is the possession of a sound body. It is common knowledge that a sound mind, or a healthy mental condition, prevails in a healthy body. The Yoga Asana thus form the backbone of applied yoga. The Hatha yogis found that certain specific body positions, asanas, open the energy channels and psychic centres. They found that developing control of the body through asanas enables to control the mind and energy. Yogasanas becomes tools to higher awareness, providing the stable foundation necessary for the exploration of the body, breath, mind and higher states.

Surya Namaskar

The Sanskrit word Surya means ‘Sun’, and the word Namaskara means ‘Salutation’ or ‘Worship’. Therefore, this practice is known as ‘Salutation to the Sun’. It loosens up all the joints, flexes all the muscles of the body, massages the internal organs, activates the respiratory and circulatory systems as well as helps to tone all the other systems of the body.

Pranayama

Pranayama is a technique through which the quantity of prana (life-force) in the body is activated to a higher frequency. By practising pranayama, a certain amount of heat or creative force is generated throughout the entire body, influencing the existing quantum of prana.

Mudra

Mudra is translated as ‘gesture’ or ‘attitude’. They are a combination of subtle physical movements which alter mood, attitude and perception, and which deepen awareness and concentration. Mudras are higher practices which lead to an awakening of the pranas, chakras and kundalini, and which can bestow psychic powers on the advanced practitioners.

Bandha

The Sanskrit word bandha means to ‘hold’, ‘tighten’ or ‘lock’. The bandhas aim to lock the pranas in particular areas and redirect their flow for the spiritual awakening.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a practice of relaxation and can be defined as ‘yogic sleep’. It is a practice which can be widely applied to improve the quality and happiness of human life. Yoga Nidra acts directly in eradicating deep-rooted psychological complexes, neurosis, inhibitions, etc. it is an advanced psychiatric tool.

Meditation

We have incorporated important meditation techniques which have been extracted from tantra with the aim to direct the awareness into the domains of the mind in order to remove the impressions and make the mind ready to experience the state of mindfulness and one-pointedness.
