In our lectures on the philosophy and history of yoga, we will only touch on a handful of these issues. We'll take you back to the beginnings of yoga, explore its past and learn how it spread to the west. To help you comprehend the traditional teachings and their applicability today, we will dispel common misconceptions about Yoga and go deeper into Patanjali's Yoga Sutras.
Yoga's etymology, its meaning, its goals, its eras, its paths, its Patanjali Yoga Sutras (Yoga Darshan),and Ashtanga Yoga's current relevance.
A fundamental knowledge of the Sanskrit language is crucial in order to fully assimilate the Sanskrit names of the Yoga asanas, mudras, mantras and pranayama techniques. You will be able to recall the Sanskrit names of the various body parts and the asana names at the end of the course, not just because you memorized them, but also because you comprehend how the names are constructed.
All forms of physical Yoga, including asana, are based on Hatha Yoga. You will study more about the many Hatha Yoga scriptures in this subject, along with the reasons why your practice succeeds or fails. There are numerous misconceptions regarding the asana practice, thus we will clarify the foundational ideas of the Yogic practice as well as the distinctions between Yoga and the physical culture.
What distinguishes Vinyasa Flow from Hatha Flow? Where was Hatha Yoga first practiced? We inspire you to leave this course knowing how these three Yoga styles, we incorporated in our 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Bali, differ and resemble one another. In order for you to ultimately be able to choose which style best suits you, we will provide you with more information about the history of the various styles, as well as instructions on how to teach each one. Hatha Yoga, Hatha Flow and Vinyasa Flow.
Every morning, you'll get the option to practice various forms of Yoga. Along with teaching classic Hatha Yoga, we also emphasize teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa and more contemporary forms like Yin and Vinyasa Flow. Your individual practice is the primary concern in these classes. Because a consistent self-practice will serve as the cornerstone of all your teachings. We encourage you to use this course to further your personal yoga practice as well. It impacts your effectiveness as a Yoga teacher and is your source of inspiration and energy. Some of us may be teachers, but we will always be learners.

We build the groundwork for your next yoga asana lessons at our asana lab. You will be able to design Yoga lessons regardless of the teaching method, once you have "mastered" all these asanas.
Ever ponder how your teachers structure their lessons? How do they choose which asana comes after which other? In this session, you learn:
We must discuss ethics in order to perform a Yoga Teacher Training. Unfortunately, there is room for discrimination and abuse in the Yoga community as well as in so many other facets of our lives. We want you to be informed about these issues. We will discuss how students and teachers interact, equally, using inclusive language and cultural appropriation.

Kadek Martina is Balinese. She was born in Ubud, Bali. Kadek used to work as a marketing manager in London and Liverpool in a private health care industry until she was diagnosed with poly cysts. She decided to returned back to Bali in 2011 and started her self healing by practicing Yoga diligently. Under guidance of a "Asana, Pranayama, Mudra Bandha book" by Swami Satyananda Sarasvati, she practiced twice daily for a year. "The Guru will come when the student is ready". It was the time she needed to deepen her yoga practice by seeking a Guru. Then universe arranged that she went to the bank of Mother Gangga by the foothills of the Himalayas at Parmarth Niketan Ashram Rishikesh. She took seva (selfless service), studied and taught yoga at the Ashram. After 2 years in Rishikesh, she returned home and recovered fully from poly cysts. She continued her practice and shares her experience in Bali.
Martina focuses her Yoga class on Suksma Yyayam - to build strong foundation of strength, flexibility and balance. She also teaches authentic Hatha Yoga, pranayama, yin, power, yoga nidra, and meditation. Her experience, knowledge and friendliness brings joy to the class.
