Om Yoga International is a registered organization by Government of India and Yoga Alliance, USA. It is an authentic yoga training centre perfect for both yoga beginners looking for physically healthy body as well as mental health to maintain happiness, peace and harmony in their life. Kindly note No previous yoga experience is required for this course as it is specially designed for beginners. This course also helps you to explore yourself spiritually as we here at Om Yoga, teach real authentic Indian Yoga. This training course helps you in your personal life as well as your professional career too. As after undergoing this training, one can opt to make Yoga as their profession. As this is an internationally certified course, it gives you an opportunity to work in any part of the world in yoga.
200hours Indian Traditional Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Course has a duration of total 30days(4 weeks). This is a basic yoga teacher training course where we prepare the students to have good knowledge about not only asanas but the real yoga. Nowadays, people are misinterpreting the word Yoga as merely Asanas(like physical exercise) and very rare people know about Pranayama. But real meaning of Yoga seems to be getting disappearing. But we here at Om Yoga in addition to Asanas and Pranayama also teach the real meaning of Yoga. In our Vedas and other ancient texts, nowhere Yoga has been described equal to asanas (This is why we say we teach from the traiditonal pount of view). We try to familarize our students with the real meaning of Yoga. This helps them to understand about this path of Yoga and practice it in a much more better way. This lets our students to gain confidence so that if they go in any part of the world and talk to any person regarding yoga, they donot loose confidence and be firm in their knowledge and feel proud from inside that they have done a knowledgable course with Om Yoga as all our concepts are fully supported both with the vedic studies and scientifically. We have gained a good experience in this path. It is our own experience , we see students who come to do Yoga at our centre have main focus of doing asanas only because they have made up their mind before coming here for yoga as asanas only but when we teach them the real meaning of yoga, how yoga includes 3 aspects: physical, mental and spiritual, they love listening to that. How Yoga can be helpful in our daily life,, how it can help a person to live a good and harmonius life. Most of them even feel surprised to listen to these types of talks and sometimes get so overwhelmed. All this they then try to implement in their life which helps them to live a happy and balanced life. We have seen many people coming to our centre how their lives have been changed with these life transformative techniques of Yoga.
Another common thing seen nowadays is many people think they cannot do Yoga because they have no flexible bodies or suffer from some physical problem. And so feel demotivated. But we have planned our courses in a systematical manner that anyone can do these courses. Studies in Om Yoga are based on therapeutic concepts which is easy for each and everyone to carry out irrespective of any physical problem. We have designed systematic series from Basic to Intermediate to Advanced level of Asanas(around 6 in Hatha Yoga ranging from Basic to Intermediate to Advanced level) , Pranayama(4 series) and philosophy too(Philosophy we teach from very basic level). We start teaching from basic series and week by week, slowly and gradually take to advanced series. In this method, even those people who have less flexibility or any physical problem, also can do easily without facing much exertion physically or mentally. And those who say we cannot do Yoga because of less flexibility they come to the point where they can even do advanced level too.This builds confidence in them upon what they have studied. As rather than touching the modern studies of Yoga, we start from very traditional concepts.This has been our experience since many years. And many people with obese and imbalanced bodies have benefitted from these.
30 DAYS PROGRAM / ACTIVITIES
We have framed a well organized structure of Yoga for our Yoga students to help them acheive better results in these 30 days. Each and every module has been thoughtfully designed to make it easy to understand and practice it in a well planned manner. The batches are led by our well experienced yoga instructors.
After this 30 days course, we gurantee that students leave our centre with enough knowledge about Yoga and also a changed perspective towards this practical life. The philosophy taught here helps them to understand life and lead a good life by inculcating positive thinking. This program has been divided into 5 modules:
Asanas(Posture):You will learn to practice asanas in many different styles, the main is traditional Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Hatha Style. Same Asana but how it differs when you practice the same in Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Hatha style. Not only practice, but also you will learn about various asanas,their types,category and the technique of teaching the postures, the benefits and limitations of each posture, modifications, different mistakes generally made while doing them and how to correct them, adjustments, variations.. all concepts are taught here. You will be able to differentiate the meaning of asanas and exercise. The correct meaning of asanas will be clear here. And also what is the role of asanas in Yoga. You will learn here everything about asanas. How to connect asanas with breathing known as Vinyasa style. And how different styles Power Yoga, Hot Yoga, Yin Yoga and many other modern styles of Yoga have evolved from our traditional Yoga, you will be able to understand here. Here you will learn below mentioned styles:
Different Meditative Asanas
Forward and Backward Bends
Prone and Supine Pose
Adjustment: Learn how to adjust these asanas and also master an asana in a much better way. And know how to correct the mistakes performed by our own and also people while doing the asanas. This is one of the most important aspect required while doing asanas.While doing or teaching one asanas, what points a teacher must focus upon while seeing the student doing the asana. And also how he or she should adjust and handle the student, way of touching, adjusting body part. What points must be focused upon? For that, we teach separately in our Asanas Philosophy session, how to adjust a particular asana. What points should be focused on? First, teacher demonstartes how to adjust. Then student is made to practice in front of teacher how to adjust others. Like this, full fledged practice is given.
Pranayama(Breath Control Techniques): Here you learn different breathing exercises, Pranayama meaning control over the pranas as you learn how to deepen your breath which in turn helps to relax your mind. Learn how to incorporate breathing into postures, Vinyasa Style and into your classes and in your daily life. By following proper series of Pranayama, it becomes easy to carry out it.
ShatKarmas(Six Cleansing Action Techniques): These yogic cleansing practices from Hatha Yoga will be integrated into the morning schedule and will work in conjunction with the asana practices. These will purify your entire body from top to bottom and allow your breath to flow freely throughout the body. By expelling toxins from the body, we therefore cleanse it. These techniques also helps in pranayama and meditation. Infact, these are said to be the preparation of Pranayama. One another interesting thing you will learn here is antomical effect of Shatkarmas on the physical and mental body it has.
Yogic Mudras(Energy Seals): Stimulate different parts of the body by sealing in the energy. These are usually used in Pranayama and also meditation and affect the flow of prana.

This class will help you to gain knowledge of basic philosophy, concepts and history of yoga. It will cover the various traditional philosophies and viewpoints, insights from modern research and ways in which the essence of this holistic life-view can be integrated into a modern lifestyle.
