CHOOSING YOUR 300 HOURS YOGA TTC

floral-decor

Once you completed the 200 Hours Yoga TTC, you would most likely be looking for a 300 Hours Yoga TTC to further your studies.  You may either take the 300 hours Yoga TTC from the same yoga school or from a different school with different styles and tradition from where you have taken your 200 Hours Yoga TTC.

Students who change yoga schools for their 300 Hours Yoga TTC may experience some adjustment period.  Different yoga schools design their 200 Hours Yoga TTC curriculum in various different ways such as the difference in asana styles, yoga tradition, selection of class contents, focused subjects throughout the training, depth of each content covered in each class, even the same practices may be taught slightly differently.   Many 200 Hours Yoga TTC focuses on asana practices and much less on yoga philosophy and yoga anatomy, as students are more attracted toward physically-oriented trainings rather than a holistic yoga studies that allocates training hours for yoga philosophy, yoga anatomy, meditation, yoga nidra or other subtler practices that works with the mind and emotions.

During the 300 Hours Yoga TTC at our school, some may find that they have touched based on several topics during their 200 Hours Yoga TTC in previous school, while other students find that they never heard of many topics or was never introduced to several basic practices that is integrated with different practices at a more advanced level in the 300 Hours Yoga TTC, resulting in difficulty following some practices.  This varies depending on each student’s yoga backgrounds.  Therefore, it is important to understand the possible differences you may experience between different yoga schools and to keep an open-mind and be patient while going through your 300 Hours Yoga TTC at a selected yoga school.

Jia Ern Liew / November 2019300 Hour Yoga TTC in Chiang Mai, Thailand
“INSIGHTFUL, AUTHENTIC COURSE/RETREAT FOR GENUINE LEARNERS”. For anyone TRULY seeking to know yoga or know yoga better, this course provides very authentic and insightful knowledge, taught by teachers who are not only experienced but who actually live and know the culture, heritage and roots of yoga. A very traditional approach to knowing yoga that is not rigid but proper, which I appreciate most. No added un-yoga elements. Yoga knowledge as it is. For this itself, the value for money is unmatched. Anymore authentic- you’ll need to head to India..haha.. no dislikes! =) The overall experience is very good and it’s as expected! TIPS: one must be prepared mentally and understand that you will be up in the mountains, away from the city, staying in a very simple, friendly guesthouse surrounded by nature- do manage expectations and be ready to embrace bare necessities. If facilities, accommodation, and luxury services are a top priority to you- you’ll need to reconsider. =)
