During the 300 hour Ashtanga yoga teacher training you will practice the Primary Series and learn the Intermediate Series sequences along with the breath control and adjustment. In modern Ashtanga, as created by K. Pattabhi Jois, the asana practice consists of pranayama, asana as well as dristhi which is the ‘looking place’ while doing the asana. During 300 hour teacher training emphasis is laid on these three aspects as they develop the outward body, the nervous system as well as the mind will lead to inward awakening.
