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.

Reviews by graduates

I was here in March 2016 and I'm so happy about my choice.

I was actually at another school before I met Stevie from Himalayan YA. He took time to answer all my questions and explained to me in depth about what HYA had to offer. I was looking for traditional yoga with Western teachings. Himalayan gave me just that, the best of both worlds which was really important to me as I was returning to the West to teach.

I had enjoyed yoga for many years but I had the knowledge lacking from my practice. I now can say that my eyes are more open to yoga than I ever imagined plus there are many bonuses to this course.

Many courses don't give much teaching time but HYA gives an extra 40 hours to concentrate on just that. Classes such as vocal training to lean how to fill the room with a calm but assertive voice which is forgotten about on other courses. I felt confident to lead a class because of this practice. I have met many other students who had completed their YTT who didn't have the confidence to teach months after graduating. I am truly grateful for this. Be warned this course is intensive but you have a good support system around you plus fun trips to help you relax and enjoy it for what it is :)

Loved the team and grateful for all that I have taken away with me :)
