Awakening: 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Amarjit Kumar


Peninsula Office Tower

8 June - 4 August 2024

About the Training

An experiential journey to enhance awareness, knowledge & experience

Building expertise and knowledge through learning how to teach can uplift an individual’s understanding of yoga practice for physiological and psychological well-being.

Correct practice of the techniques requires proper understanding of the techniques’ roots. Learning a systematic teaching methodology that is consistent with human anatomy in the sequencing of postures and movements is key to safe and proper practice. Good sequencing skills enable physical balance in every part of the body; having a focused and open mind brings a balanced state of mental abilities.

Yoga calls for a holistic approach to body, mind & spirit. The disciplines of yoga postures and meditation are closely linked and complement each other. A better understanding of the philosophical and practical aspects behind the practice of postures and meditation helps in maintaining a healthy, happy and sensible lifestyle. It enables knowing yourself and others better and it may also enhance your interaction with others.

This teacher training course requires commitment and discipline, and you will benefit:
– Mastering the art, techniques and principles of yoga
– Being a well-rounded yoga teacher who understands the physical, physiological, psychological and philosophical aspects of yoga
