Private 200-HR Yoga Teacher Training and Certification
Classes in Goa, India, starting oct. 2017
GuRu means a master, a person to follow. Ru is lightness that follows the lead -- the master.
At Vinayam, we offer RU Yoga School Teacher Training and Certification, bringing back the traditional teaching style with a little bit of flow added for modern and contemporary lifestyles. It’s a gentle flow paced Vinyasa with a few pauses to get deeper into asana practice with complete awareness on breath.
At Vinayam RU Yoga School, our motto is, “Practice brings awareness.”
Teacher training is only offered as private or semi-private classes, stretched over a period of 4 months, with choice of weekday and weekend classes. Our focus is on empowering the individual to deepen their own personal knowledge of yoga, as we believe that "Self transformation is world transformation."
Our curriculum illuminates the traditional yoga practices, along with the current physical training needed to be a confident teacher. Over the course of the 4 months, students will benefit from a deeper understanding of alignment principles, yoga anatomy, and yoga philosophy. Students are taught a very spiritual and humble approach to yoga, which is a combination of traditional Hatha and Vinyasa flow. This includes meditation, chanting, pranayama, and exposure to some Ayurveda to establish a firm foundation of learning and practicing.
Students will learn dharma and foundations of Ayurveda, yoga sutra (yamas and Niyamas) to choose and surrender their life to practice and lead their life as a yogi. Students will practice their teaching voice from the first day, as they practice to rehearse in their mind how to cue flowing from one pose to another. This provides an opportunity to practice and guide themselves while their body is moving from pose to pose, to feel and experience every asana practice to maximum benefit. This creates a muscle memory in the physical body and awareness in the mind.
Students will master over 10 different poses, which will include standing balance poses, forward bends, back bends, seated asana, twists, foundational namaskaras, traditional classical sun and moon salutations, and a few inversions according to the level of practice a student is willing to do.
Area of study includes:
At Vinayam RU Yoga School, we do not have any form of prerequisites; we accept you as you are and where you are in your journey. Yoga is everyday learning from the heart center.

Minimum requirement is previous yoga practice with a familiarity of Vinyasa and ability to understand and communicate in English. This is completely private couching one -on -one. can be offered on skype for students who have very less time in their schedule.
