Who We Are

The aim of the course is to challenge practitioners to advance in their practice by exploring the limits of their body and overcoming them, as well as to develop their knowledge of the body in order to better understand every joint and muscle nuance in the poses. By the end of the course, participants shall be able to demonstrate the wide range of Hatha yoga poses, explain their possible modifications and variations, and demonstrate the steps required to achieve the pose.


Why us?

We recognize that yoga is a popular pursuit in Hong Kong. People seek it out for its health benefits and often incorporate it into their active lifestyles. However, yoga instruction is not equal among the various yoga centres in Hong Kong. This is where our accredited Teacher Training Courses make all the difference. Our courses are accredited by, and offered in conjunction with, Asana Andiappan College of Yoga and Research Centre in India. This is the first time outside of India that such a programme is being offered. Our classes are designed and taught in the same way as our instructors are taught. Predominantly from India, our instructors are fully learned not only in the practice of their discipline, but also in the history and philosophy behind the practice. The resulting combination of grassroots knowledge both practical and theoretical in our programmes gives students more in-depth learning than they may be able to find elsewhere in Hong Kong.

What is Andiappan Yoga?

As taught by Guruji Dr. Asana Andiappan in his yoga school in India, this class is open to yoga practitioners of all levels, particularly those who are interested in improving their postures and developing a discipline of self-practice on their own. Students practice postures and breathing techniques at their own pace under the supervision of a teacher, who assists them individually through verbal instructions and by making physical adjustments. This enables students to make significant improvements to their postures, and also helps them develop a simple routine according to their body's flexibility. Moreover, the class close-knit and intimate teacher-student environment makes it ideal for self-practice. For this class, students may arrive anytime within the one and a half hour-class.


Venue

The training will take place at Anahata Yoga, 18/F, One Lyndhurst Tower, No.1 Lyndhurst Terrace, Hong Kong.
