COURSE OVERVIEW AND CONTENT 

FOUNDATION

Students will  develop  their own asana practice with a sequence provided to them at the start of the training.  Deepening your own practice by understanding the principles inherent in Vinyasa practice:

the structure of a class, sequencing, alignment, flow and the impact this makes on the anatomy and physiology of the physical, subtle and casual bodies is crucial to understanding and creating safe self practice as well as teaching others.

 

Understanding the history of yoga, the historical and current recognized texts and their relevance to modern yoga is helpful to reduce dogma

and increase authenticity in both practice and teaching.  Ayurveda will be introduced as

a guideline for self-care and ethical treatment

of the body.  

DEEPENING

As students progress through the teacher training, their conscious awareness of yoga

and its practices will continue to develop.

We will work consciously with various techniques: mantra, mudras, pranayama, bhanda and dhristi and other concentration and meditation techniques as well as more advanced asanas.  Student will be expected to develop a meditation practice.

TEACHING

Teaching yoga can be a uniquely rewarding opportunity.  To teach successfully in the modern world requires more than just technical proficiency.  This course will address subtle art of adjustments including safety and ethical considerations  with teaching in We also aim to provide an understanding of the economics of the business of teaching yoga and how it can vary in different environments.

TESTIMONIES 

" Studying with Eyal opened me to new aspects of the yoga practice I had previously glazed over. I began to recognize that yoga was so much more than just asana, and under Eyal's guidance I started to understand and appreciate the many more sutler

aspects to the practice. Eyal nurtured me as a practitioner and aided in my growth as teacher. 

I am grateful for his guidance and continuedvsupport on this journey."

- Simone Nitzan (Toronto) -

"... I took the training because I wanted to deepen my knowledge in yoga, with no intentions of becoming a teacher. The TT was so wonderful that by the end of it I was completely in love with yoga and teaching, resigned from my high tech job and devoted my life to yoga! It is the most elaborated and serious program out there, and I am serious!

I studied and worked with yogis from all over the world and was always proud of the initial training

I got from Eyal ..."

- Yael Weisbach (Tel-Aviv) - 

״ Eyal is a sensitive, committed and highly experienced teacher, as well as a person with a large heart. I believe that being a therapist contributes to his incredible talent to identify patterns, on both physical and deeper levels. Studying with Eyal was an inspiring and fruitful experience.

I will therefore enthusiastically recommend him as a teacher for anyone who wish to develop profound skills in the ways of the Yoga, and especially for those intending to become teachers themselves.״
