InDepth Yoga Academy is registered with Yoga Alliance and therefore follows a syllabus designed in line with the internationally accepted standards of education set by them. The course will follow the same 4 areas of study as indicated in all of our courses, those being techniques and practice, teaching methodology, anatomy and physiology, philosophy and practicum. As a registered yoga school, InDepth Yoga provides it's students with the required contact and non - contact hours in each field, allowing the students to gain the essential foundation in their yoga study. This foundation will not only ground you and set your place in the yoga world but also allow for a great deal of personal growth through the understanding of the yogic belief of the universe and the self. Bellow, we will go into further detail regarding each section of the course.
Techniques, Training, and Practice
With Ashtanga Yoga this part of the 4 sections will cover most of the course. Most of your ti here will be spent working through the positions, improving your flexibility and abilities overall, it is not required for you to be flexible or to be able to do any of the hard positions before coming to the course but we can guarantee that you will be astonished by the progress that you will have made by the end of your time here.
You will be given time to practice each pose, to feel the effects on your own body and, of course, practice teaching the poses in groups with other students.
From the very first day, you will begin practicing teaching the poses in their rightful sequence, using your voice, proper instructions and begin to learn the Drishti and alignments. This will allow you to become very comfortable with teaching from the get-go and by the end of the course, you will notice a large difference in your confidence as both a teacher and a practitioner.
Anatomy and Physiology
This is a very vital part of a quality teacher training as it is absolutely vital for anyone who intends to be an instructor to understand the way the body is made up and how it works in order to correctly adjust, alight and help their students. Therefore this section is treated with the utmost importance. We will cover all aspects of body anatomy such as joints, muscles, ligaments, and etc and find out how they all play into our yoga practice.
Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle Ethics
Here we will discuss the ancient texts including, of course, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali in order to bring forth, discuss and understand the 8 Limbs of Yoga.
In this final area, students will practice teaching, read the materials provided, complete small written exams regarding the content learned and at the end of the training, teach a full yoga class consisting of all the necessary areas learned.
Dates and Costs
The total cost of the training is separated into a course fee and accommodation. We do not require our students to locate with us, if you feel your situation is better suited for locating else where you are more than welcome to find accommodation near the school location. However, locating in the school holds a lot of valuable factors such as the friendly atmosphere of fellow students, the proximity of our instructors, who are always ready to answer your questions, as well as the fact that the school is only 10 minutes away from the beach and all kinds of other cultural cafes, shops and temples.
