To the Roots 200hr Yoga Teacher Training, India


DATES: Jan 14th - Feb 7th 2022 
LOCATION: India, Rishikesh 


This course is designed for students who are looking to immerse in yoga for personal growth or teach yoga. The desire to teach is not a pre-requisite to take this course, however, to uphold the integrity of this experience we will approach this program with the mindset as though we are training all of you to be the best teachers out there. It is the school’s mission statement to teach you with integrity, tradition and modernity in fusion with your personality and offerings. Of course – to have fun as well! However, expect hard work in between play.

  • The morning asana practice will be 2.5-3 hours in length, we begin with the foundation and build. The style is strong hatha (think slow vinyasa with longer holds, alignment and a sprinkling of flow practices. Julia is a “breath-centric” teacher, meaning class with her will always begin and end with some form of pranayama and meditation. Crystal will be infusing her love for mantra, chanting and storytelling within her classes. 

  • Daily asana clinic of around 100 foundational postures, basic cueing and pedagogy

  • Daily practice teaching of “bare bones” – massaging your “teachers voice” beginning with the basics and then building

  • Learn the Sanskrit names of all postures

  • Traditional practices of mantra, chanting and its history

  • We will also look briefly at an overview of yoga history to give you context where we come from

  • We will review vinyasa karma – the art of basic sequencing for a vinyasa class

The Chakra System

The Sanskrit word Chakra translates to wheel or disk, which refers to energy centres in the human body. 

Learn how the 7 Chakras work and feel in your body. Explore the health benefits of Chakras through physical Asana (postures) Pranayama (breathing techniques) & Mantra (vibrational sound.) Expect yoga and movement.

The first session will begin with a study of how the whole subtle body system works together, explaining the Nadis (rivers of energy,) the Granthis (energetic knots,) the Chakras (wheels of energy,) Kundalini (coiled energy)and how they are connected to the Gods & Goddesses of Yoga and our body. This will be finished off with a unique practice of pranayama, mantra, asana and meditation to help stimulate and balance the energy within the body, while infusing affirmations to create harmony.

The second session is a brief review of the Chakras, more focus on learning when the Chakras are unbalanced and balanced and how to regulate them. This session will be heavily focused on being in the experience of balancing of the Chakras by visualization, Mantra, Pranayama, asana and guided meditation practices
