Experience Santosha… Experience True Yoga
Become an Extraordinary Yoga Teacher! There is Yoga and there is Yoga which evolves from authentic, intelligent Yoga Teachings.
Here at Santosha Yoga Institute we teach and are passionate about the truth of yoga – and providing our students with a system that allows each student to apply the teachings to their unique bodies and their own personal practice.
This provides a solid foundation for your teaching, your life and your relationships – so that your life can be experienced with joy, health and gratitude.
The Training provides in-depth Yoga Therapy / Anatomy and understanding movement patterns, so the Asanas are truly understood. We teach an integrated and intelligent Breath Development process so that Pranayama is expanded and not forced – and the mind calmed and restored to health and happiness.
Our students learn to be intelligent Yoga teachers, not just Yoga Teachers. There is a difference.
Our unique approach to yoga comes from the teachings of T. Krishnamacharya, who is considered to be one of the greatest yogis of the past century. During the one hundred years of his life, he inspired thousands of practitioners worldwide and taught prominent teachers such as B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, Indra Devi, A.G. Mohan, and his own son TKV Desikachar.
TKV Desikachar was a student of his father for three decades. In 1976 he founded a non-profit Yoga Centre in Chennai, India, The Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM) to share and propagate the teachings of his father and teacher.
Essential to these teachings is the principle to “Teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other”.
Yoga should always be adapted to the needs, circumstances and goals of each individual, never the individual to fit the yoga and this is what each of you will learn – so you can be an intelligent teacher and provide far more than Yoga classes for your students.
“Undoubtably the most enlightening and profound yoga experiences that I have ever had. This programme gave me the opportunity to learn from a range of incredibly insightful teachers and philosophers whose beauty and knowledge was shared in abundance.
The teachers on this programme have the ability to have you live and feel yoga from moment to moment. Inside of that process you can’t help but look inward to see who you want to be as a teacher of yoga and how that impacts other people.” ~ Dianne Braham, UK
