YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
STARTING IN MARCH 2024, 450 HOURS WITH 2 WEEKS IN INDIA
YOGA, SURYA’S VISION
Yoga is a discipline of incredible philosophical depth, and of great effect in its practical application. In Sanskrit, yoga means “union”. Indeed, the tradition speaks of connecting the small and the large, and expanding our field of consciousness.
We believe that yoga is about working on oneself through a skilful balance of physical, energetic, emotional and mental practices. It respects the choices, ways and cultures of each individual, and enables us to live these choices in a richer, fuller, more responsible and conscious way. Slowly but surely, it guides us towards our essence, without force, taboos, beliefs, pressures or conditions. It’s a path to true freedom.
Yoga & Ayurveda
Ayurveda, the traditional Indian medicine, takes into account all the layers of our being, from body to mind, their synergy and balance. Yoga and Ayurveda are closely linked and rooted in the Vedic tradition.
At Surya World, we consider Ayurvedic recommendations to fine-tune our yoga practice, while yoga is not limited to physical postures but is considered in its traditional integrality.
Structure and content
Surya World is committed to offering future teachers a comprehensive yoga training program, covering many areas of the discipline:
- Study of postures (asanas) and their practice from an Ayurvedic perspective.
- Work on the individual as a whole, i.e. on the different levels of being and their synergy (physical, energetic, emotional and mental in particular).
- The science of Raja Yoga, which covers a very broad field of evolution, from the establishment of lifestyle rules to prepare the body, to the most advanced stages of meditation.
- Surya pedagogy: we accompany future teachers as they learn to teach yoga to groups as well as individuals.
