Why do a Yoga Teacher’s Training Course?


by | Aug 29, 2021

It’s quite possible that you are into Yoga and enjoying the benefits of getting in and out of many of the 84 main Asanas that this age-old Indian discipline offers.

But wait a moment… are you experiencing just a fraction of this science — precisely 1/8th of it?

Ashtanga Yoga — Ashta meaning ‘eight’ in Sanskrit — consists of 8 branches. These are the Yamas, Niyamas (ethical principles that you live by and that govern your interactions with others and your environment), Asanas (physical posture), Pranayama (breathing), Pratyahara (disengaging from your physical senses); Dharana (self-reflection); Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (enlightenment).  

The fact is that in today’s world we all want quick fixes because there is so much to do and so little time. Unfortunately, in the field of Yoga this has resulted in the beauty, depth and transformative power of Yoga being diluted more and more as studios offer heart-pumping sessions that promise weight loss, toned bodies and glowing skin in the shortest possible time. 

But let’s not short-change ourselves. Let us embrace Yoga in all its glory and potential as it will unfailingly guide us towards a simple, happy and healthy life. Yoga is truly an integrated approach to our minds and bodies if only we spare the effort to explore its true meaning.

Here’s where Pratimoksha, Enlighten Yoga Center is creating a difference, standing apart from other Yoga centers by holding firmly to our Yogic principles. And its Teacher’s Training Course (TTC), certified by Yoga Alliance, is the foremost program through which it influences the wider community.

Pratimoksha believes that its TTC graduates play a crucial and vital role in taking the message of holistic Yoga to communities across the world. The program is intense and equivalent to a master’s program in Yogic Science. The curriculum covers Human Anatomy and Physiology, Yoga Philosophy, Asanas, Breathing Exercises, Meditation, Yoga Therapy and more.

So far Pratimoksha has successfully trained 15 students from various nationalities and religious backgrounds. Pratimoksha’s founder Lalitha Viswanath, with her extensive knowledge and 20 plus years of experience, has crafted the TTC and trained her team to ensure that it is well-equipped to support those eager to take up teaching.
