The Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Course or Level 2 TTC is meant for the Indea Yoga’s level 1 Hatha or Ashtanga Vinyasa Certified teachers. On completion of this course the teacher is provided with an RYT 500 certificate. While level 1 focuses on alignments and breath, this Advanced Yoga Teacher Training helps the teacher understand important aspects of yoga therapy and thereby uplifting their confidence. The teacher gains broader knowledge of body’s anatomy and possible limitations, injuries and health conditions and is able to design the proper sequence for each condition. This four week long course emphasizes on understanding the asana and pranayama techniques better and in a deeper way.
An introduction to hands-on adjustment will be included for the teacher to understand the best way of correcting their students while preserving their energy and to understand their needs and limitations. Bandhas, mudras, kriyas as well as meditation will be taught which differentiates it from level 1 Teacher Training Course.
After the completion of the Advanced Teacher Training Course from Indea Yoga, the teacher will be eligible to enrol themselves for Shikshaka Sadhana (Level 3 Teacher Training Course).
Module 1: Asana Practice
IndeaYoga's Primary series (for Ashtanga teachers) and Foundation series (for Hatha teachers) are practiced everyday. Each one is provided with an opportunity to lead the whole class through the sequence everyday.
Module 2: Asana Technique / Hands-on adjustment
Topics of bandhas, mudras and kriyas are discussed thoroughly. As opposed to the level 1 Teacher Training Course, the teachers are taught how to adjust students in every asana from the prescribed series, in the right manner.
Module 3: Chanting
All the IndeaYoga prescribed chants including Nirvanashatakam, Shanti mantras, Gayatri mantra and such, alongside bhajans are recited everyday as a part of the schedule.
Module 4: Pranayama
Pranayama techniques are made more intense by the application of bandhas and mudras. The session also encourages a few minutes of guided meditation practices.
Module 5: Kriyas
Kriyas such as jala neti, sutra neti, trataka and nauli are practiced everyday. And kriyas such as vamana dhouti and shankaprakshalana are introduced and given a chance to practice - one per week.
Module 6: Anatomy
This module holds a lot of weightage. The teachers are made familiar with almost 20+ bodily ailments and ways to deal with them through yoga.
Module 7: Philosophy
Patanjali Yoga Sutras – Vibhuti Pada (chapter 3), Kaivalya Pada (chapter 4) and Karma yoga Sloka Sangrahah (Bhagavad Gita) will be discussed along with basics of Chakras and Ayurvedic principles.
