Himalayan Yoga Academy

Education & research Foundation

The 100-hour Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher certification course is suitable for teachers and practitioners. Vinyasa Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga is a series of asanas in a unique flow created by K. Pattabhi Jois in 20 century.

It requires energy and demands flexibility as well. During asanas and various movements breathe synchronizing, Ujjayi breath, and “Drishti” i.e. (focus on a particular point are very essential. Each of the poses is linked with the Vinyasa flow. The asanas are already fixed in the sequences. The proper alignment and way to asanas are thoroughly taught. After this practitioners are anticipated to memorize the sequence to practice without being guided by the teacher. The teacher will monitor and teach adjustment or assist in asanas unless and until you are perfect. After that, you can do your own self-practice.

In the primary series, there is Vinyasa flow many times. The flow will continue to warm the body up for better flexibility. Even iron becomes able to flex due to heat, the same does for the flow of the body. Vinyasa flow also strengthens the core and arms which finally prepares for the intermediate series. Ujjayi breath during the pose will help to give enough oxygen which continues the energy level in the body.
