About the course
About Anahata Yoga Accredited “100hrs Inverse Yoga Teacher Training Course”
Anahata Yoga’s accredited Inversion Yoga Teacher Training is designed with the developmental needs of our students at the centre – learning to understand the physical and mental challenges of the inversion poses and how to appropriately teach these poses safely is fundamental to a yoga teacher’s skill set. The core of our teacher training program is to provide our students with the knowledge and skill to enable them to then teach inversion poses with awareness for the unique anatomy and physiology needs of their students. Also, to skill them with a wide variety of methods and tools to tailor their teaching appropriately and with confidence.
Our faculty of teachers who are teaching this inversion teacher training are from the andiappan yoga tradition. They have embedded yoga into their daily lifestyle and understand the importance of teaching the foundation yogic practices in a manner that enables the students to build a strong foundation for a lifelong yoga journey.
All of our teachers have substantial experience as yoga teachers and in teaching inversion and inversion-themed classes, workshops, private classes – they all have extensive experience in transforming students’ practices and capabilities, to levels where the students can practice basic to advanced postures with confidence and in a safe manner without fear for risk of injury.
We recognize that yoga is a popular pursuit in Hong Kong. People seek it out for its health benefits and often incorporate it into their active lifestyles. However, yoga instruction is not equal among the various yoga centers in Hong Kong. This is where our accredited Teacher Training Courses make all the difference.
Our courses are accredited by and offered in conjunction with, Asana Andiappan College of Yoga and Research Centre in India. This is the first time outside of India that such a program is being offered.
Our classes are designed and taught in the same way as our instructors are taught. Predominantly from India, our instructors are fully learned not only in the practice of their discipline but also in the history and philosophy behind the practice. The resulting combination of grassroots knowledge both practical and theoretical in our programs give students more in-depth learning that they may be able to find elsewhere in Hong Kong.
