Yoga teachers training
The training for Corrective Therapeutic Yoga teachers is the second level of education and represents a direct continuation of students’ prior knowledge, acquired in our Yoga Instructors training course.
During this course, future yoga teachers will learn, in detail, about different degenerative changes and sequences for each individual problem (scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis, spondylosis).
Being that Corrective Therapeutic Yoga improves the health of the entire human body, this second part of the training will focus on the sequences which regulate various systems – nervous, respiratory, digestive, urinary, immune, reproductive and cardiovascular, as well as on those sequences which regulate blood pressure and hormones. Also, students will master the sequences addressing everyday issues (menopause, menstrual problems, sciatic problems, stiffness of body parts, obesity, convalescent therapies, etc.).
This second course is an overall upgrade of students’ knowledge. Their basic knowledge of asanas will expand and they will also learn new, prop-based asanas. The study of Ayurveda, the theory of Yoga and the study of new scientific discoveries are further evolved and understood and their use in the practice of Yoga is introduced to students.
What’s specific about the second year of study is that our students learn how to make individual therapeutic charts and apply them in their own practice. This is something that makes us unique in this part of Europe.
