With a very deep sense of responsibility and keeping the quality of what we do in mind, we have created a structure for the online teacher training.
We do not wish to be just teaching you some asanas and pranayama online and disappear.
We have been trying to find the best method to make it as similar as it could have been on-site training here at Samyak Yoga Mysore.
This course structure needs your investment of time and energy every day with an understanding that being a Yoga Teacher is a noble responsibility.

Course syllabus in detail
Pranayama and Meditation
These are everyday sessions. You will be practising Pranayama and Meditation every day. Besides the practices, you will be exploring the anatomy behind the practice of Pranayamas as well as Pancha Prana and Kosha system of Yoga Philosophy.
You will be practising the traditional meditation practices in a steady and gradual process. Meditations such as Kaya Dharana, Indriya Dharana, Chidaksha Dharana etc are practised.
Traditional Ashtanga Yoga Practice
This entire training focuses on traditional Ashtanga Yoga practice and its philosophy. We do not mix up the styles in the teacher training. You will be learning Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice with its philosophy. We do not focus on workout Yoga methods. Instead, we stick to the time-tested methods of the traditional practice of Ashtanga Yoga.
As a Yoga practitioner and teacher, you should know the anatomy behind the practice. However, these sessions are not about memorizing the complicated muscles.
We discuss how these muscles are used in the asana practice, their functions, the limitations we could face in the practice, how to build the practice using the knowledge of Yoga anatomy are discussed in detail.
This is an everyday session that really makes the teacher in you, enhances the yoga practitioner in you.
This everyday session focuses on the complete vinyasa krama of Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series.
This session focuses on the practice of every asana, the preparations required, usage of blocks and belts, benefits and limitations, modifications if the student is unable to practice as well as methods to deepen the practice are discussed extensively in this session.
You will be exploring the fascinating philosophy of Yoga Darshana. It is most likely not what you could be expecting. It is motivating, making you re-think a lot of preconceived notions and will take you to a different thought process of transformation.
You become a student when you start teaching. You will be in breakout rooms every alternative day and you will be teaching the other students. You will also be receiving feedback on teaching skills and refining your teaching skills of Ashtanga Yoga every day.
