Our 200 hrs Multi-style Yoga Teacher Training in India is a combination of active involvement (Yang) and passive awareness (Yin), fitness and witness, where physical practice merges with the subtle, spiritual and divine force of creativity, where activities are meant to support the deep relaxation. In other words, to create a balance between our active and passive energies is the aim of Yoga.
Abhinam Yoga School classifies Ashtanga Vinyasa, Power Yoga and Hatha Vinyasa Yoga as Yang practice and Restorative Yoga with therapeutic/touch or Yoga with props and mindfulness as Yin practice. Hence, our Multi-style Yoga Teacher Training course in Dharamsala India consists of Ashtanga Vinyasa, Hatha Vinyasa, Restorative Yin Yoga combined with relaxation techniques with mindfulness practices such as Vipassana meditation, mantra chanting, Yoga Nidra, deep Yogic sleep or talking to body-mind methods from yogic and tantric traditions.
