Yoga Teacher Training Syllabus

Traditional Hatha Yoga Teaching from Nath Parampara (Tradition)

It is said that the Hatha yoga lineage evolved with the Natha sampradaya(community) and it follow shaivism, according to Hatha yoga tradition lord shiva is known as first yogi or adiyogi, according to yogic mythology shiva shared this knowledge of yoga first with his wife goddess parvati. It is said that these teachings of Hatha yoga came in existence around 5 to 7 thousands years ago, but it has not any exact proof it is just based on yogic mythology.
Natha word also comes with shiva, the Sanskrit word nātha नाथ literally means “lord, protector, master”. The related Sanskrit term Adi Natha means first or original Lord, and is a synonym for Shiva, the founder of the Nāthas and that’s why shiva is also known as adinatha, so this tradition passed by the yogis named Matshyendranatha, Gorakshanatha, charpatinatha, one of the great notable hatha yogis who attained the higher state of conciousness and actually this natha term signifies that lineage, which began with adinatha.

The Sanskrit word हठ haṭha literally means “force”, alluding to a system of physical, mental and emotional techniques. But the question is what type of force??, often people misunderstood hatha meaning they think it means to doing hatha yoga practice forcefully, which is not truth at all, the idea of hatha yoga practice is to attain force physically and mentally. How???

Hatha is made up of 2 words “HA” and “THA”, according to Hatha yoga a human body has two parts right and left side of spine. Right body is related with “Ha” and(solar energy) and Left body is related with “Tha” and (lunar energy). The aim of practicing Hatha yoga is to attain balance of prana (vital energy) by synchronizing both solar and lunar energy in nadis.

Traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a separate subject dealing with the information of yoga. It is actually a tradition that has been followed by people for ages. There is a little similarity in the asanas or postures of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Hatha Yoga, though the names might be different.

Akshat Yogashala offers 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in India with the proper knowledge of Traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. The course is designed for beginners as well as advanced students. The course is designed to provide a complete understanding of the Ancient science of yoga. The course covers all the aspects of yoga, from its history and philosophy to its practical application. The course is conducted in the serene and beautiful environment of Rishikesh, India.

The word Pranayama is derived from two words of Sanskrit grammar ‘Prana’ and ‘Ayam’. The word Prana in Sanskrit is derived from the root ‘An’ with the prefix ‘Pra’. The ‘Un’ metal signifies vitality. Thus the word ‘Prana’ means the power of consciousness. The word ‘Ayama’ means to regulate. In this way, the method of controlling prana by regulation of external breathing, special breathing techniques to control prana and acquiring the ability to take subtle and long breaths, is called pranayama.

Maharishi Patanjali explained Pranayama in his book

तस्मिन् सति श्वास प्रश्वास योग वि विच्छेदः प्राणायामः (Yoga Sutra 2/49)
tasmin sati shvasaprashvasayorgativichchhedah pranayamah (Yoga Sutra 2.49)

Meaning: The regulation of the natural movement of breath and exhalation when the matter is stable, is Pranayama, says Patanjali. Through the practice of Pranayama, the veil of impermanence gets weakened and the ability to dharna comes.

The 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in India explains the following Elements of Pranayama.

Pancha Prana – There are five major pranas in Pranayama which are known as Pancha Prana. These five pranas are Prana, Apana, Samana,
Udana, and Vyana.

Pancha Upaprana – Pancha Upaprana are the five supporting elements of pancha prana which are Naga, Kurma, Krikala, Devadatta, and

Natural and Yogic Breathe – Yogic way of breathing calms the nervous system and helps the mind the most. In this, the time of exhalation is
longer than inhalation.

Puraka, Rechaka and Kumbhaka – Maharishi Patanjali has mainly given three distinctions of Pranayama.

  • Rechaka – It is the process of exhalation of breathing in Pranayama.
  • Puraka – Puraka is inhalation of breathing in Pranayama.
  • Kumbhaka – Kumbhaka is about retaining or holding the breath during the process of Pranayama. There are two types of Kumbhaka Pranayama,

Antara Kumbhaka – Also known as the inner Kumbhaka, it is the
retention of breath after inhalation.
Bahya or Bahir Kumbhaka – Also known as the outer Kumbhaka, it is the retention of breath after exhalation.

Nadi Shodhana – Nadis are the energy channels of the body. When one performs Nadi Shodana pranayama, nadis get purified and the prana
energy starts flowing in these channels.

Anulom Vilom – An alternate nostril breathing, Anulom Vilom is done to balance the life force energy or pranic energy.

Bhastrika – Bhastrika is a rapid pranayama process which involves fast inhalation and exhalation. The same round is repeated many times.

Ujjayi Pranayama – First of all sit in any meditative posture. Keep the waist and neck straight. Breathe through both nostrils by compressing
the throat so that the sound (like of a small child’s snort, waves) is produced slowly. After that, do Kumbhaka for as long as possible, then
make Pranava mudra of Pranayama and exhale slowly from the left nostril. Repeat this action over and over again. This is known as Ujjayi

Surya Bhedi – Suryabhedan is the first pranayama in Hathapradipika. It is right-nostril breathing. With the help of this pranayama, solar energy
gets activated in our bodies.

Chandra Bhedi – It is left-nostril breathing related to Chandra Nadi or the Moon Channel of the body. With the help of this pranayama, lunar
energy gets activated in our bodies.

Sheetali – It is also known as Cooling Breath. The meaning of Sheetali is that the meaning of saying coolness is that by doing this pranayama, the
body gets coolness. That is why it is called Sheetali Pranayama. This type of pranayama is like a tree providing plenty of oxygen. Also, the pranayama is beneficial in giving peace and coolness and so can be done in the
summer season.

Sheetkari – The meaning of Sheetkari means coolness, which means something that cools our body and mind. When you do this type of pranayama, the sound of the word ‘Sheet’ has to come out of the mouth.

Bhramari – Bhramari Pranayam is a special method of breathing meditation in which sound like a bee is also practiced.

कर्म षटकमिदं गोप्यं घटशोधनकारकम्।
विचित्रगुणसंधायि पूज्यते योगिपुंगवैः।। (Hatha Yoga Pradipika 2/23)
karma ṣhaṭkamidaṃ ghopyaṃ ghaṭa-śodhana-kārakam |
vichitra-ghuṇa-sandhāya pūjyate yoghi-pungghavaiḥ ||

Chapter 2, Verse 23 of Hatha Yoga Pradipika says that only after the purification of the body, the seeker is successful in getting rid of the internal wastes. Before Pranayama, their need has also been said because it is not possible to get success in sadhana due to the lack of circulation of life in the Nadis filled with faeces.

In the olden times, six types of Kriya were done to make the body healthy and to do the high practice of Pranayama and Asana. The yogi could purify the body internally as well. These six types of action are called Shatkarma (Shatkriya). In Hatha Yoga Pradipika, it is depicted in the form of Kriya.

These Shatkarma Techniques are:

  • Dhauti
  • Basti
  • Neti
  • Nauli
  • Trataka
  • Kapalbhati

All these actions are associated with different parts of the body. By doing these, the body is completely purified internally. Now we share a little information about all these techniques with you, which is easy to understand.

Dhauti – Dhauti is a Sanskrit word that means “purification”. It is
derived from the root word “dhau” which means “to wash.” Dhauti
Kriya is specially performed for the complete cleansing of the internal
body system. It is of four types namely, Antara (internal) Dhauti, Danta
(teeth) Dhauti, Hrida (cardiac or chest region) Dhauti and Mula
Shodhana (rectal cleansing).

Basti – The large intestine and rectum are purified through basti kriya.
It is helpful in removing the stuck waste food material in the hollow part
of the intestine. In simple terms, Basti Kriya cleanses the extra waste

material from the body. The modern name for basti kriya is Enema.
There are two types of Basti, Jala Basti, and ‎Sthala Basti.

Neti – The main purpose of this action is to purify the nasal passages. By doing this, the impure and blocked nostrils will open completely. Due to this the irregularity of breathing is removed. That is why it is also called a nasal cleansing exercise.

Nauli – Nauli is considered a difficult exercise, which can only be learned with perseverance and patience. Nauli is an essential action for the purification and toning of the stomach and its internal organs.

Trataka – Trataka Kriya is related to the eyes. It improves eyesight and increases focus. It is useful in mental concentration. It should be started with candlelight in the beginning. There should be a distance of around 2 meters between the eye and the law of the candle.

Kapalbhati – Kapalbhati is a part of the yoga system pranayama which is used to cleanse the body. The word Kapalbhati is made up of two words: Kapal means ‘forehead’ and Bhati means ‘sign’. The brain is well affected due to the process.

Yoga Darshan is a practical and psychological form of philosophy for the spiritual, mental, and physical development of human life by combining the existence of nature, man, and God. It states that the body, mind, and soul can’t be separated.
