Traditional Hatha Yoga Teacher Training School in India
“Ha” means Sun and “Tha” means Moon, therefore, the practice of Hatha Yoga is designed to help up bridge together the Sun (male, active, warming energy) and Moon (female, receptive, cooling energy) within our bodies to live in a more balanced state.
Hatha Yoga is a path used to bring about balance and unity of opposites in our body, mind, and spirit. Our physical bodies lack equality in muscle strength, balance, and flexibility. It is the belief of many holistic practitioners and yogis that any physical imbalance or pain has a mental and spiritual root. Hatha yoga deals with health on the mental, physical, and spiritual levels to bring about whole body equilibrium and harmony. In traditional Hatha Yoga, we use Asana, or postures, to bring about stability of the body, which leads to stability of the mind. More about our Hatha yoga teacher training..
Few words of praise from our Yoga teacher training Students..
Chandra Yoga International changes my perception about Yoga. I came to the course with the thought of learning “a gentle balancing exercise called yoga.” But now I open my eyes with a new knowledge and deep understanding of what yoga means. It’s a trip, an adventure to come back to your home, your inner-self. Thank you Chandra Yoga to bring me home. Much love and see you back soon.”
Cathy Pham, Australia, June 2015
Coming to Chandra Yoga international I began my journey new to the yoga world and left a confident yoga teacher. The teachers at the school are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It is truly a life changing experience. You get more out of a teachers training than just yoga, it has brought together people from various parts of the world and they become family.
Jennifer Freeman, Canada, May 2015
I came to Chandra yoga school on May 2015 and stayed almost until the end of July 2015. It was truly unforgettable and life-changing time. I came to learn yoga and complete 300 hours teacher training course and I left being a confident and professional teacher with two months experience practicing yoga and teaching every day. This school has a unique quality: it can bring together truly amazing and wonderful people that will change your life and become your good friends. I highly recommend this school for yoga and meditation course, as well as Dr. Sushil a mediation, pranayama and yoga philosophy professional.
