Of all the yoga teacher training courses that I attended in my entire life, this one at the Himalaya Yoga Academy is the most impressive. Not only I left the course with a massive amount of new and useful knowledge, but having spent 5 weeks in a healthy supportive environment realized myself as a professional yoga instructor. Our teachers wholeheartedly taught us all that they knew and experienced. Although we rarely used a chair in a class, we felt this academic atmosphere all over. A true academy it was! My rating is 12 out of 10. Sign up now and think no more about any other yoga training program!
How many hours per day you run yoga classes?
In a yoga teacher certification course, our curriculum foresees 5 to 8.25 hours of classes daily. Asana practice takes three hours per day. Morning warm-up class is 45 minutes long and is optional. Lectures are 1 to 2 hours per day. There is one 60 minutes asana alignment workshop in a day. After dinner, we practice meditation for 30 minutes to an hour. Shatkarma classes take about 30 minutes and are three times a week. That's 15 minutes a day. Pranayama practice takes another 15 minutes daily.
Those undertaking yoga intensive courses can skip some of these classes and focus on asana practice and alignment, and meditation classes.
