Most Yoga institutes and schools offer Level 1 and 2 Teacher Training Courses, which usually take place over a short period of time. There is a void for practitioners who wish to grow in their practice, consistently advance over a larger span. Shikshaka Sadhana, the most intense program amongst all of those offered by Indea Yoga, was created by Bharath Sir with the intention to see students and teachers progress over the years.
Scheduled once a year, participating in three Shikshaka Sadhanas makes you a Level 3 Indea Yoga Teacher. Indea Yoga offers upto Level 4 and Level 5 certifications, each based on 3 years of attendance in Shikshaka Sadhana. The hours put into Shikshaka Sadhana count as Yoga Alliance Practice Hours.
The intention is also to allow teachers, teaching for the whole year round, to get in touch with their own practice. To refresh their knowledge of yoga, as well as share their experiences and questions with like-minded practitioners and teachers.
Level 1 and 2 from Indea Yoga are a must for anyone who wishes to participate in Shikshaka Sadhana.
