What is Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga?
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic heating practice that aims to detoxify and still the mind. Ujjai pranayama/breathing is practiced throughout to bring about this detoxifying effect. Ashtangi’s focus on one point or Dristi to avoid distraction and go inward whilst engaging Bandha locks to contain the energy created.
Traditionally Ashtanga is a fixed sequence where each practitioner would practice in the same way every day. The teacher would watch and assist and give the next pose in the series when the student was ready. The student would eventually build up a full primary series and then be introduced to the next. This Mysore style practice is a systematical approach, allowing for the body of each individual practitioner to gain flexibility and strength slowly and in each personal time scale.
On 200 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training our teachers instruct each asana in detail explaining modifications and props where needed. Students practice these asana according to their capacity. Students will go through in detail each of the elements of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, including including rules of sequencing, pranayama, chanting and dristi.
Who is the Multistyle 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Course Suitable for?
Our 200 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training courses are aimed at future yoga teachers, and we focus highly on teaching methodology. Students will be analyzing each pose and every aspect of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system in detail. Then, by learning practical teaching methods, understand how to guide their own future students verbally, visually, through physical adjustment and careful observation.
Having said this, we also recommend the 200 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training for dedicated practitioners who wish to deepen their Ashtanga Yoga practice as well as those who wish to teach. We believe that the process of teaching is the best way to learn.
Both beginners and experienced yogi’s may join this course. There is a lot of knowledge to be gained here and our Teachers explain every part of the Ashtanga system in detail with modification of poses. However we do advise that any applicant is physically fit enough for the four hours per day of yoga practice and has had a yoga practice for at least 6 months prior to starting the course. Each application is considered on an individual basis. So, if you are unsure please don’t hesitate to contact us.
