Yoga Teacher Training Vrindavan
Sankhya Yoga Teacher’s Training (YTT) Course(Vrindavan –India, 25 Days)
A Combination of Bhakti Yoga and Hatha Yoga
Although Bhakti Yoga (Yoga of devotion) is complete in itself and a complete surrender to Krishna is the supreme Yoga in itself. For Physical well-being and sharpening of intellect and stability of mind to engage in Bhakti Marg, Hatha yoga is a useful tool. It is meant to prepare mind and body for realising the highest truths realised by Bhakti. Although Lord Krishna himself says that ALL Yoga leads to same destiny, but for a Physical and mental stability (Hearth), we need to practice Assanas, Pranayama, Meditation etc., which are parts of Pantanjali Yoga.
We are providing Yoga sessions to participants interested in knowing Patanjali Yoga and practice Assanas and all prescribed steps of PatanjaliYoga.Our Yoga teaching also includes lessons on Sankhya Yoga the highest Philosophy propagated by lord Shri Krishna in Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran.
One of the major objectives of this course is to imbibe a healthy daily routine among students and this is the reason for starting the prorgamme every day in the early morning. We are not following any specific ‘Type’ of Yoga, which have unfortunately mushroomed all over the world. Our approach (Not the type) is ‘Sankhya-Yog’, which aims at integrating yogic theory and physical practices to a maximum possible extent.
The founder of Yoga Maharishi Patanjali prescribed certain rules for humans to follow as a productive member of society and he prescribed a code of conduct that we try to inculcate among students through a systematic understanding of the same. We expect our students to follow this code and later promote the same in society. You may find few basic differences in conception of yoga from your previous experience in other yoga schools located in different socio-economic and cultural settings, but must be willing to adopt according to ultimate goals and objectives of traditional Sankhya-Yoga Philosophical system described by lord Krishna in detail in Shri Bhagwad Mahapuran. After successful completion of course participants can also get a certificate from Rishikesh School of Yoga, which is a pioneer yoga school in Rishikesh (India) accredited with Yoga Alliance, USA to conduct 200, 300 and 500-hour residential hatha yoga teacher training programs. Rishikesh School of Yoga is a non-profit organization (NGO) registered under the Indian Government Societies registration Act, Act 1860.
We organise this course in Vrindavan, which is one of the holiest town of north India located conveniently between Delhi (144 km) and Agra (53 km).This small town is very deeply associated with lord Krishna who is considered as the greatest Yogi (Mahayogeshwar) born, so far in the world. Lord Krishna spent his childhood in this region and it is believed by the Hindus that in Kaliyuga (the present age) Vrindavan is the abode of lord Krishna. This place is divine and any Sadhna (Spiritual penance) done here brings multiple results due to the strong and positive energy of place suitable for self-realization.Vrindavan is also an ideal place to understand the spiritual life of India and a place, where practice of Bhakti Yoga (devotion) can be seen at its best in all aspects of life.
