Yoga XTC Yoga Teacher Training Course (200 Hours) Synopsis
The Yoga XTC Yoga Teacher Training Course is designed to clarify and demystify the meaning and purpose of yoga.   Yoga is a systematic, spiritual science emphasizing practical techniques to unite the individual self with the Universal Self.   This is an intimate, inward journey which must begin with the physical body, especially in our modern world, hence the emphasis on asana (even though yoga is not just asana).

The Yoga XTC Yoga Teacher Training Course will provide you with the knowledge and the techniques to begin this wonderful inward journey to the true self within and to share this experience with others.

On a more practical note, Yoga XTC Yoga Teacher Training will equip future teachers with the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical experience to skillfully teach a Yoga XTC asana class.  Yoga XTC classes always incorporate the practice of asana, kriyas, pranayama, pratyahara, and dharana, with an emphasis on asana.

Through a systematic series of lectures, workshops, and practicums, this course will provide the opportunity for the teacher to establish a firm foundation for a fruitful & rewarding teaching experience, or for the advanced student to deepen their personal practice. The training covers the full spectrum of yoga, including:
  • Teaching and Practicing Asana
  • Vinyasa Krama: The Art of Asana Sequencing
  • Modifications for All Levels
  • The Importance of Kriyas
  • The Art of Adjustment
  • Creative Use of Props
  • Teaching and Practicing Pranayama
  • Relaxation Techniques leading to Yoga Nidra
  • Meditation Techniques
  • Shat Kriya: 6 Yogic Cleansing Techniques
  • Philosophy of Yoga
  • Anatomy of Hatha Yoga
  • Study of Patanjali's Yoga Sutra
  • Principles of a Yogic Diet
  • Introduction to Sanskrit
  • Introduction to Vedic Chanting
  • Introduction to Ayurveda
  • Introduction to Tantra
  • And more!

Yoga XTC Yoga Teacher Training Course (200 Hours) Prerequisites
All applicants should have (the equivalent of) at least 1-year of regular yoga asana practice (a minimum of 1 hour / day, 5 days / week).

However, this being a yoga training, we recognize that one's yogic maturity does not always correspond to the amount of time one has spent practicing yoga in THIS lifetime.   Therefore, we welcome any applicant who is ready to commit to a daily practice of yoga asana, pranayama, meditation and self-study.
