The 100 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course in India(Pre-TTC) is part of the 200hr TTC offered at Abhinam Yoga Schools in Goa & Dharamsala. This short term yoga course is for students who do not have the time to complete the 200hr course in the traditional four weeks, instead, Abhinam yoga offers you the opportunity to complete the 200 hours TTC in two sections. These two sections must be completed within the year of commencement and the certificate will be awarded to the student once all of the required hours, assignments and examinations are successfully completed.
The course syllabus follows Yoga Alliance 200hr YTTC standards, and includes learning the asanas of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series with an emphasis on how to teach in an injury free way to all age groups.
