Here, students will learn how to get deeper to the asana practice using the correct knowledge of yoga postures. Every yoga pose has its importance, benefits and science behind. In these yoga classes students will not only focus on the physical practice but also get help with opening towards the balance of the physical and mental bodies. In this class, students will not only learn how to do asanas but also how to maintain the physical bodies while engaging themselves in a yoga posture. This will give them an understanding of precautionary moves in their advance practice. Regardless of practitioners’ level of experience, this training will shape both, advanced and begginer yogis equally. We can not deny the fact, which is over and over explained in the various yogic texts, that activation of energy is actually commanded by breath. Pranayama class will help you to develop awareness of your breathing. Prana is a vital force in our body, which makes us active and gives us stability and health.

Shat means six and Karma means action. These practices consist of a six groups of purification methods. In a very simple way, this can be understood as internal purification by cleansing the waste that is stuck in the body and can cause several malfunctions in bodies. In the practice of Hatha-Yoga, shatkarmas are aiming to create harmony between the two measure pranic flows, ida (moon nadi), the left .nostril and pingala (sun nadi), the right nostril. This harmony hepls to attain physical and mental purification. The Sanskrit word mudra is translated as “gesture” or “attitude”. Mudras can be described as psychic, emotional, devotional and aesthetic gesture or attitude. In this specific part of the program, the yoga students will learn different Mudras that are part of the yoga tradition. Students will experience mudras as attitudes of energy flow, intended to link individual pranic force with universal force. A mudra may involve the whole body in a combination of asana, pranayama, bandha and visualization techniques or it may be a simple and hand position. In Yoga Teacher Training some mudras will be introduced to the students to give them a better strength in their practices.
The Sanskrit word bandhas means to hold, to tighten or to lock. This definition describes the physical action involved in the bandha practice and their effect on the pranic body. Aim of bandhas is to lock the prana, in a particular area and redirect it’s purpose to spiritual awakening. Bandhas should be practiced and mastered individually and then they can be beneficially incorporated with mudra and pranayama practices. As part of our 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training practitioners will learn different bandhas, so that they will be able to incorporate them into their asana and pranayamas practices. There are four locks :-Jalandhara bandha (throat lock), Mola bandha (premium contraction / root lock), Uddiyana bandha (abdominal lock), Maha Bandha (great lock ). These practices are used before pranayama and other higher practices in order to purify the body of toxins and to ensure safe and successful progression on yoga path.
The main purpose of learning this session is to make students fully trained in different aspects and subjects of yogic practices so that they can become more confident and focused towards their goals.
