The newly established Rishi Yoga Foundation offers various Yoga Teacher Training Courses in the holy city of Rishikesh in India. Now you will think, what’s the difference in these teacher training courses?; as they are offered by many other yoga schools in Rishikesh. Here is the answer- The difference is the zeal and interest taken by the teachers of Rishi Yoga Foundation, in teaching and preparing the students to become successful yoga teacher trainers. They take personal interest to clear doubts of students and to help them in carrying out correct postures and sequences during yoga teacher training in Rishikesh. Not just that, the courses are also offered at very cost-effective fees.
Now about the teacher training courses being offered at Rishi Yoga Foundation. The school offers 100 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh which includes classes, notes and practicals to students on Hatha yoga. This course is best-suited for those who don’t have any knowledge of yoga or very less information about it. Some of the poses that are part of the 100 hour yoga ttc (teacher training course) include- Head stand (Sirshasana), Shoulder stand (Sarvangasana), Plough pose (Halasana), Fish pose (Matsyendrasana), Cobra pose (Bhujangasana) and Bow pose (Dhanurasana). The students will not only be taught to perform these poses, but will also be perfected in performing them.
Next comes the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh. Like the 100 hour course, this course too includes classes, notes and practicals to students on Hatha yoga along with Ashtanga yoga; only this time in much detailed and predefined manner. The 200 hour course is aimed at preparing future yoga teachers in Hatha and Ashtanga styles of yoga. Special attention is given to correct postures and body alignment. All poses of Hatha yoga from the 100 hour course + basic poses of Ashtanga yoga are taught in this 200 hour yoga ttc. In addition, meditation is taught to students as it helps them focus on practising the poses correctly. Meditation will also help them to keep calm and synchronise their mind and body in one direction while carrying out difficult poses.
Some of the Ashtanga yoga poses are- Sun Salutations, Standing poses and Seated poses. The most important thing about Ashtanga Yoga is breathing and improving body’s flexibility. Not just that, Ashtanga yoga taught under the 200 hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh at Rishi Yoga Foundation also helps students to reach sub-conscious level of mind, understanding it and getting to know your body, as to how much you can stretch and extend it. It won’t be easy to perform Ashtanga yoga poses as your body would feel rigid and inflexible; but with every passing day, your body will strengthen and improve in terms of flexibility. And by the time you complete the 200 hour yoga training course, you will have transformed into a trained Hatha and Ashtanga yoga teacher. And your journey doesn’t ends here, you can continue to start teaching yoga in some registered yoga school or can even start your own yoga school in which ever city and country you live.
