Below, we will provide further detail regarding each section of the course.
Techniques, Training, and Practice
In this program, we will explore traditional yoga practices such as asanas, pranayamas, kriyas, chanting, mantra, and meditation. Our experienced instructors will guide you through these techniques, and then we will delve deeper into their origins, uses, and how to teach them.
Each day will begin and end with a guided asana practice. Throughout the course, you will gain extensive knowledge of the poses, sequencing, benefits and risks, as well as flawless alignment and hands-on assistance.
As asanas are just one aspect of the extensive world of yoga, we will also focus on other practices such as pranayamas. You will learn several techniques, experience them firsthand, and become comfortable incorporating them into your practice or class.
Kriyas, Mantra, and Meditation will also be covered extensively. You will become proficient in guiding yourself and others through various forms of meditation, such as breathing, visualization, chakra, and others. Additionally, you will learn yogic cleansing and purification techniques, and how to incorporate them into your practice. Our instructors will also provide lectures on the origin, history, and meaning of the mantra.
One distinction that sets InDepth Yoga Academy graduates apart from other RYS graduates is their gained experience in teaching upon completion of the course. Our students start teaching small aspects of a yoga class from the very first week and continue to do so until the end of their studies. This allows them to become comfortable with guiding a class, naming poses, and public speaking.
Throughout the course, we cover topics such as following a timeline, group dynamics, dos and don'ts, through a series of lectures and physical practices. We also delve much deeper into topics such as addressing the individual needs of students (including past injuries, age, and ability), teacher ethics and styles, as well as assisting in a yoga class.
Anatomy and Physiology
This course places great importance on understanding the anatomy of the body to ensure the safety of our students. Students will learn the basic anatomical makeup of the body and key terms associated with it. They will also learn how different yoga poses affect various aspects of the body. We will cover the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems, exploring the effects, benefits, and risks of each pose. Additionally, students will become familiar with the organs and cardiovascular system.
In addition to the physical anatomy, we will also extensively cover the subtle anatomy and physiology, such as chakras, nadis, and koshas. Students will gain a thorough understanding of each one, including the benefits and risks, and how poses and meditation affect them.
Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle Ethics
In this area, we will cover everything from the proper yogic diet according to ancient texts, to the texts themselves, including Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, The Upanishads, and The Bhagavad Gita.
Through a series of lectures and in-depth discussions, we will explore what it truly means to be a yoga teacher, as well as the purpose each one of us has in this world. Our students will gain not only a much deeper and closer understanding of the universe, but also a better understanding of themselves, their past, and their future.
In this section, our students will explore both external and internal aspects in order to come to a conclusion about their place in the universe. Through discussions and daily-life applications, they will begin a healing process and start to develop themselves.
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.
