200-Hour Teacher Training

  • Teacher Trainings:

Next start date of Manasa 200 hour 16-week Teacher Training: SEPTEMBER 7, 2019

If your aim is to be a teacher of yoga who can teach from a place of true understanding and awareness, the Manasa 200-Hour Teacher Training is the course you should seriously consider.

The Manasa 200-Hour Teacher Training is conceptualised to guide you in unravelling the latent wisdom in you through the contemplative and practical application of core yoga philosophies. It will also help lift your asana practice to a higher level through detailed teachings of functional anatomy, and empower you with the skills and confidence to teach yoga safely, profoundly and transformatively. Dive into our 16-week Teacher Training Course with Manoj and Sandhya and you will find yourself breaking through existing limiting patterns and releasing the joy within.

Each week, Manoj will devise a special asana and pranayama home practice sequence which will reflect the subject of study (anatomical or philosophical) of that week. Regular audio and video support, as well as instructional emails will be provided to reinforce Manasa teachings. Attendance at Manasa Yoga workshops conducted during the duration of the TTC is compulsory. Teacher trainees are expected to observe a strict yogic lifestyle (including a vegetarian diet) designed to improve their will power, self-understanding, and inner purity throughout the duration of the course. Graduates of our 200-HOUR Teacher Training will be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance individually as a 200-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher.

The Structure of 200-Hour Teacher Training

With each module you complete, you will accrue 50 teacher training hours at Manasa Yoga. To complete and graduate from the Manasa Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training, you will need to complete all four modules. By the end of the teacher training programme, you will feel confident to take the seat of an authentic yoga teacher. Besides equipping you with the skills and tools to teach from a true place of understanding, the Manasa Teacher Training will also provide you with all the materials and guidance for you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, to vastly improve your asana and pranayama/ meditation practice, as well as to live your moments deeply and insightfully, enabling you to recognise yourself as a celebration of the universe.
