TEACHER TRAINING SYLLABUS
How the physical postures should be performed and sequenced. Includes variations you can give to students who may need easier versions and progressions into the full posture. We will also cover how and when to adjust a students form.
How to instruct a class
You will learn the art of teaching, from sequencing, safe and affective alignment, hands on guidance, motivate and inspire students, teaching 'language', when to let students find their own way and how to manage groups with mixed levels of ability.
Anatomy, Physiology and Human Energy Design
How the body works and how yoga can enhance the various system within it e.g. muscular, skeletal, respiratory, endocrine etc. You will be able to explain the benefits yoga can bring to the body, mind, and soul.
The Chakra system
This energy system is a central concept that is shared throughout eastern approaches to health and well being . We think everyone interested in yoga needs to understand the critical difference between the tantric and classical yoga approaches to understanding, balancing and optimising the chakras.
Kundalini Energy Transformation
Often only covered in a mystical sense in standard teacher training course, we will explain what it is, how it can be safely activated and what to do with it.
Tantric Sanjeevani and Shambhavi Kriyas
Kriya is translated as “action” and is used in several different contexts in yoga. The Kriya’s you will learn are a series of seated exercises that will activate energy channels in the body. With only a short amount of regular practice you can experience the life changing effects of these ancient and incredibly powerful methods that will bring the theoretical concepts of the chakra system to life by making it something you have physically experienced for yourself.
Your breath is the link between body and mind. The benefits of regular pranayama exercise cannot be understated. The tantric methods have subtle but very important differences to those taught in a classical yoga approach. You will learn advanced methods for your own personal practice and basic methods suitable for using in a class or workshop.
The pinnacle of all yoga practice, meditation is so simple, yet so challenging. Fortunately there are techniques in both the classical yoga and tantric schools that you can use to rapidly accelerate your own progress and when leading group meditation sessions.
Exploring the yogic concepts of the universe, our existence in it and most importantly, how to create a life of love and fulfilment. Introductions will be given to key classical texts such as Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra’s, and lesser known but equally important tantric volumes. This will include the 8 limbs of yoga and the 5 kosha’s.
From the original yogi's, known as Rishi's, right up to the all the weird and wonderful "styles" of yoga on offer today. Learn the often untold story behind the evolution of yoga and what the different approaches offer.
Indian Wellness Academy is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance US, which designates this teacher training program as one which follows Yoga Alliance’s standards. Students who complete an approved training with this school may be eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYTs).
What sets the course apart from the rest is that all techniques, methods and philosophy will be taught from what is today considered a classical yogic view point but also the lesser taught tantra view point. In reality, Tantra is a fundamental part of the Yoga, the apparent divide is a result of historic social and political factors that will be explained as part of the fascinating yogic history element of the course. By bringing both approaches back together you will receive a more complete yogic understanding and the chance to learn the most powerful ancient techniques that you will not find in text books as they are only passed directly to a student from a guru.
Our teacher training course will give you the most authentic and complete yogic training. The course is led by Ildiko Bakos and Sri Vijay Anand. Coming together from different fields of the yoga traditions with many different skills, you will not be short of inspiration and knowledge!

"Yoga is an integral part of my life and I strive to continually learn. I teach from the heart, It is an honour to share this ancient science and art with others"
SRI VIJAY ANAND (PhD)
Tantra Yoga Teacher & Spiritual Guide
"It is relatively well known that all modern styles of yoga came from Hatha Yoga. It’s lesser known that Hatha is a simplified variation of some of techniques collected from the Tantra’s. The most effective yoga practices cannot be found or are not fully disclosed in the most popular yogic texts referred to in modern teacher trainings. I am blessed to be part of the oral tradition that has preserved the most effective teaching. It is my life’s works to continue spreading this knowledge with the right students"
As part of this course Anand will offer his knowledge on dynamics at play in this life, giving you a window into a sacred knowledge that he has gained through his own education and exploration in the classroom and individually so that you can overcome and master your reality.
Anand (born in India) is a Yogi, international speaker, presenter and visionary. He has worked tirelessly towards the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of humanity through powerful yoga programs, teacher training courses and volunteers to run public service projects.
