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 a program designed to give you the basic knowledge, skills, and confidence to practice yoga based on the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series and Vinyasa Flow.
Our 100-hour Yoga Teacher Training course is based on the traditional Ashtanga Yoga system established by Sage Patanjali more than 3000 years ago. The asana part is mainly derived from the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary series and Vinyasa Flow. Our comprehensive curriculum covers asana practice, pranayama, meditation, and philosophy classes. Apart from the Modified Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series you will also practice Vinyasa Flow and some Yin Yoga classes (as a bonus!)
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. 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 Vinyasa or Vinyasa Flow and want to learn how to practice these two other styles, or
If you have taken an online Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher training course and want to have an in-person experience, or
If you are already a qualified Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teacher but want to refresh your knowledge and skills about Ashtanga Vinyasa, or
If you love yoga and want to learn how to practice Ashtanga Vinyasa and Vinyasa Flow even though you don’t want to become a yoga teacher, or
If you just want refresh your knowledge and deepen your practice, or
If you want to immerse in a yoga course that offers you more knowledge, practice and tools than a yoga retreat.
You will receive a 100-hour yoga teacher training certificate at the successful completion of the course. If you are already a qualified 200-hour Yoga Teacher in any style from any school then you can register this certificate with Yoga Alliance USA as CEPs.
