ISHTA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING 2023

JOIN US ON THE JOURNEY OF SELF ENQUIRY, AND PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING.

The foundation of our school combines the physical with the inner emotional and spiritual journey. By integrating body, breath, movement, and meditative awareness, we promote awareness of the interdependency of all these aspects in personal health and wellbeing. At Hiranya Mandala School of Yoga Integration and Meditation, we use our extensive training and in-depth understanding of the human body and psyche to teach and cultivate awareness of one’s own practice and life process. The 500-HR ISHTA Yoga Teacher Training course exposes the prospective student to the sciences of Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Tantra and Ayurveda, and gives him/her the chance to integrate these into his/her daily life, practically. Students are also acquainted with the Samskrtam language, thus placing the teachings, historically, into the context of the Vedic tradition (1000 - 500 BCE) and the more Classical Period (300 - 400 BCE).

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

This course would suit those people who desire to teach Yoga as either a purely physical process or a spiritual process, or a combination of these. It will also benefit people who struggle with physical, mental and spiritual afflications, by encouraging a systematic process of introspective self-analysis in an attempt to ascertain, understand and clarify the underlying causes of these disturbances. In this way, the student of Yoga not only regains well-being but, also, becomes better prepared as a teacher to assist others in an understanding of the subtle nuances and intracacies of spiritual life. This course is also suited to those who desire to learn the fundamentals of the aforesaid systems of knowledge purely for their own self-enrichment and growth, and not to necessarily teach.
