What is Yoga? What style of Yoga is taught?

The word Yoga originates from the sanskrit root yuj which means Union. On the spiritual plane, it means union of the Individual Self with the Universal Self. Yoga is the union of the body, mind, emotions and intellect. Approximately 2000 years ago, Sage Patanjali penned down this subject in his treatise known as Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Hatha Yoga is the study of the asanas or postures, breath, and meditation based on Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga.

Sage Patanjali’s exposition consists of 196 yoga sutras which cover all aspects of life. The eight aspects (astanga) of yoga are :

Yama and Niyama : depicts of moral and social conduct
Asanas : adjust the body in various postures
Pranayama : regulation of breath and energy
Pratyahara : internalization of the senses of perception
Dharana : concentration
Dhyana : meditation
Samadhi : the ultimate state of self realization.

Kind Yoga school teaches Hatha Yoga, and it is important to understand that Hatha yoga is one of the main branches of yoga.

There are many popular styles of Yoga at this time. Styles of Yoga such as Bikram Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, and Ashtanga, all stem from Hatha yoga.

This is the great gift of yoga – it serves and nourishes us at every level of our being and spontaneously contributes to greater well being in all domains of life.

Will I be certified at completion of program?

Yes. Once you have satisfied all requirements of the Kind Yoga Teacher Training, you will then be certified as a Hatha Yoga Teacher and awarded a Certificate of Completion, qualifying you as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) at the 200 – Hour level with the National Yoga Alliance.
We do not require you to “re-up” your training with Kind Yoga once you have graduated. You do not need to pay further fees to us once you have graduated as some programs insist on.  We offer continued mentoring and 500 hour training if you choose. The truth about yoga is that once you fall in love with it, you will continue to practice for the rest of your life, and we trust you to do that.
