TEACHER TRAINEE – COURSE OVERVIEW
This course will provide you not only with a life-long livelihood, but also a life, ‘long’, ‘enriched’ and ‘fulfilling’. The word yoga means ‘unity’ or’ oneness’ derived from the sanskrit word ’yuj’ which means ‘to join’. On a practical level it provides the means of bringing health and balance to the body, mind and emotions.
Yoga unifies the 3 fundamental requirements for a person to achieve a contented life:
1. Physical health within the body.
2. Psychological well-being and heightened consciousness.
3. A joyful spirit, with accompanied inner peace.
In this course you will learn how to balance and harmonize the vital energy within the body; purifying and strengthening the body and thereby preventing the leakage of this vital energy, you will find stores of it increasing within yourself thus stimulating higher levels of awareness. You will learn how these subtle energies flowing through the body can be harnessed and controlled, how to harmonize body, breathe and mind and also open the currents of psycho-physical energy to penetrate the understanding of super consciousness.
