The modules which are an integral part of the Yoga Teachers Training Course (TTC) at Himalayan Yoga Centre have an objective which have to be delivered and promulgated to the students seeking this training.
1. Training and Practice of Asanas, Pranayama and Meditation Techniques
At the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre the asanas and paranayama are not just taught but practiced, which means the practices are conducted in routine in order to provide sufficient time for the student to understand his or her body and its capabilities. The asanas and pranayama which are often assumed to be physical postures are much more than simple bends and the students are provided sufficient time to understand the impact of these practices on their social, mental and physical health. The centre also makes it mandatory for the students undergoing this traing program for 9 weeks (3 weeks of the preparatory 5-Day Yoga Courses + 3 weeks of the Intensive Yoga Course + 3 weeks of the pedagocial part of the TTC) to provide them with adequate and appropriate time for self-exploration and realisation. This initial training is followed by months of assisting Yoga classes on all levels at the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre with the continuation of the intensive self-practice twice a day.
