Which Style of Yoga taught in the 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training?

The two words, “Ha” (Sun) and “Tha” (Moon), make up the word “Hatha,” which is of Sanskrit origin. Hatha Yoga simply means a stubborn or rigid type of yoga. This type of yoga is for maintaining the balance between the body, mind, and spirit. Hatha Yoga includes a complete set of physical postures, or asanas, with different breathing techniques. It is an ancient technique that has been practiced by people for a long time. Lord Shiva, also known as Adiyogi, discovers yoga and all its styles. So you can link Hatha yoga to Shaivism, but later on, Siddhas and Naths continue the tradition. The followers of Goraknath were also involved in this practice. Hatha Yoga is an essential style of yoga if you are at the beginner level.

Hatha Yoga is way more than doing asanas in a continuous series. It is actually a divine way to attain the finest stage of salvation. Hatha is also practiced to purify the Pingla Nadi (connected with the sun energy of the body) and the Ida Nadi (connected with the moon energy of the body). Nadis are also known as the energy channels of the body.

Karuna Yoga Vidya Peetham conducts a beginner & intermediate level course of 200 hours of yoga teacher training in Bangalore, India. The course explains Hatha Yoga through theoretical and practical classes taught by experienced gurus of the school. We also assist you in getting the most out of Hatha Yoga by doing it in the most enjoyable way possible.

Vinyasa Yoga simply helps you link every asana with breathing. It tells you how to move from one posture to another by making the right synchronization of the breath. The thing that makes a Vinyasa class different from other yoga classes is that no two Vinyasa classes are alike. There are a variety of postures in the Vinyasa style of yoga. The sequence is the same, but there is always variation in the asanas.

Surya Namaskar, also known as a “Sun Salutation,” is the most common yet most complex type of Vinyasa style. While performing Surya Namaskar, proper attention is given to the inhalation and exhalation processes. Its every movement is maintained by the inhalation and exhalation of the breath.It is highly beneficial for keeping you active while maintaining your health. Whether it’s about physical fitness, mental fitness, or emotional growth, Vinyasa Yoga is the best in every aspect.

Karuna Yoga Vidya Peetham, 200-Hour Yoga TTC in Bangalore, India includes theoretical and practical classes in the Vinyasa Style of Yoga. The theoretical class explains the origin of Vinyasa yoga and how it evolved over time. The practical class helps you gain the confidence to perform and teach vinyasa asanas with confidence.
