The 200 hour
Hatha Yoga Course (RYS 200)
The Seasonal Yoga Teacher training course consists of 12 intensive monthly modules with a focus on the
Vinyassa practices of Seasonal Flow and Ashtanga Yoga. The course includes training and practice in Yogic philosophy, Asanas (postures), Kriyas (purification techniques), Pranayamas (breathing
techniques), Mantra, Anatomy and Physiology, Meditation (including seasonal mediations and the vedantic meditation in the tradition of Ramana Maharishi), the energy systems of the body, Chi Gung and
other traditional energy practices.
This 200 hour course is designed to explore Yoga in more depth and includes practical and theoretical work.
It is called Seasonal Yoga because we include information on how to harmonise your practice and energy with the outside season, drawing from the Chinese cyclical understanding of nature, to create
more of a balance within our lives. Seasonal Yoga uses our understanding of the body’s energy lines, how they affect our organs, vital energy, mood, & mind set, and uses that knowledge to help
attune you more to the world around you through your yoga practice, your diet, your breath work, etc. Throughout the training students will study the Chinese and Indian five elements and how they
relate to their practice and lifestyle depending on the Season.
You will also gain comprehensive experience in some of the main styles of Hatha yoga (Ashtanga/Seasonal
Flow/traditional Hatha Yoga/etc), as well as Yoga for special circumstances, chair Yoga, teaching with music, and more. We also cover marketing, N.L.P, how to run your classes, and much more.

Alliance at the 200 hour level. You will be a Registered Yoga Teacher upon completion
