Teachers Training Course [TTC].
The Post Graduation Diploma in Ashtanga Vinyasa[PGDAV] is a one-year course aimed at producing qualified, trained and holistic Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teaching professionals. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is an ancient system of Hatha Yoga that was taught by Shri. Vamana Rishi in Yoga Korunta. This text was imparted to Sri T. Krishnamacharya in the early 1900’s by his guru Shri. Rama Mohana Brahmachari and later passed down to Shri. Pattabi Jois. This style of yoga is physically demanding as it involves continuous series of postures. The practice produces internal heat and sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, flexibility, stamina, strong body and calm mind. The aspects emphasized by Shri Pattabi Jois as main components of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga are 1. Asana 2. Vinyasa 3. Breath 4. Drishti 5. Bandha.
At the end of the course student will be able to:
Bachelor’s degree or any equivalent from any recognized university in any discipline such as BA, BBA, BSc, Bcom, BCA, LLB, BE, BEd, BAMS, MBBS etc.
