Sampoorna in Sanskrit means ‘full, absolute, total, whole and complete. Therefore, Sampoorna Yoga means ‘complete yoga or absolute yoga’. We teach yoga as a lifestyle, as a whole, and focus on all the eight limbs of yoga, not just on asana. Our 100-hour Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training Course is an intensive program designed to give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to practice and teach yoga based on the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series.
Our 100-hour Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training course is based on the traditional Ashtanga Yoga system. Our comprehensive curriculum covers daily Mysore style or led Ashtanga practice, alignment, adjustment and a lot of teaching practice.
Although we are traditional in our teachings but modern and unorthodox in our approach. We strongly encourage you to bring your own creativity, intuition and spiritual experiences into your learning and teaching styles. We don’t follow any religion or dogma in our teachings.
Our 100-hour Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training course is for you:
If you are already a qualified yoga teacher in any style other than Ashtanga and want to learn how to practice and teach Ashtanga Yoga
If you have taken an online Ashtanga Yoga teacher training course and want to have an in-person experience.
