Teacher Development Study Program


TEACHER TRAINING | February 2019 - May 2020

TTC 2019-2020

Teaching Yoga is an art that requires continuous self enquiry and an understanding of ones personal process. A teacher needs to be established in a regular and intelligent practice, one which constitutes an appropriate response to current conditions and which is good for the whole organism. This implies a thorough knowledge and understanding of the yogic language both in practice and theory and a commitment to the following principles:

•AHIMSA sensitivity and consideration, reducing anger, dread and violence toward ourselves and those around us.

•SATYA truthfulness and the ability to communicate mindfully and honestly.

•SVADHYAYA self-study motivated by the necessity to reflect on our personal process in the light of the yogictexts.
