What Will You Learn in a Yoga Training Program for Teachers?

Experiences vary, of course. One may be very different from each other, and in fact, I would say that two things are not alike. You live and learn during a training course for a yoga teacher and it changes according to the tradition of yoga you are learning and more particular focus given to this tradition, because within schools, they may have different interpretations and contemporary adaptations. There are some more mystical than others, some more ascetic, some more physical, some more devotional, some classic and some quite innovative and even eclectic.

In addition to the stamp that each teacher or tradition puts you to training, there are other variants that determine your experience as teachers to guide you to the particular vibration of where you are studying, the group energy, and the strictness of the course according to the program duration, intensity and involving changes in your life, the dives are more physically and mentally strong, although all courses involve discipline and efforts. There is a great deal in this regard, but there is another component, perhaps the most important and this is the way we live.

You may get in tune with the thinking of yoga, because you live and practice, but it may be that, due to the requirement, you return to your old beliefs and systems and mental patterns, or you may find this way of seeing the world something completely new, and it is that you are really going to learn. Yoga is not taught or transmitted but it is lived, so there is no case I tell you exactly what you should know. I just share with you some principles of yoga that transform and enrich any experience and it can be important to remember in times of challenges.

The yoga teacher training programs may vary slightly. Some of the topics covering the various programs can be, for example, yogic nutrition, yoga philosophy in everyday life, prenatal yoga, children's yoga or yoga-therapy in addition to the main topics of postures and basic philosophy. Besides this, there are some variations, because some schools include practices such as community work (karma yoga), while others delve into the relationship with the environment and the role in society or nutrition with vegetarianism and sattvic yogic. The practice of this philosophy may also include devotional practices (Bhakti), Satsang (meetings with the group), mudras, music, mantras and singing. Some courses have assignments and an exam or final work.

Yoga in India is very deeply rooted with a great number of famous yogis and their followers and it is an idea place to learn yoga with perfection.

How to Perform Ujjayi Pranayama?

Ujjayi pranayama is also called ‘victorious breath’. It is a simple exercise that consists of slightly contracting the throat to make a noticeable sound like a whistle, inhaling and exhaling. This sound is also considered a mantra (ajapa mantra, mantra or mute) to the yogic tradition. The goal is to make breathing calm and stable and give some focus to the mind. When breathing is calm and stable, so will the mind be according to Patanjali.

The exercises of pranayama have different prodigious effects, in addition to lead us to other planes of consciousness, they increase vital energy, facilitate the flow of prana, detoxify the body and stimulate the vital functions and calm the mind. Here I explain what the benefits are and how to perform Ujjayi pranayama step-by-step.


The sound gives us a point of concentration and helps regulate breathing, thus, to control the pressure, breathing becomes rhythmic and slower.

Ujjayi has a calming effect, so it gives us concentration and serenity, renewed energy and increased body temperature which help us to eliminate toxins and strengthen the respiratory system and internal organs. It is highly recommended for the treatment of allergies.

How is Ujjayi Pranayama Done?

•To become familiar with this form of breathing, relax in Savasana. This is a major relaxation in yoga poses. To do this, lie on your back on the floor, on a yoga mat or blanket. Spread your legs and let your feet comfortably open sideways. Separate the arms of your body and rest your hands with palms up. Release any physical or mental stress and let your body relax completely. You may also practice it in a sitting position. Close your eyes.

•Inhale through your nose with depth and conscience and feel your abdomen, your ribs and your chest inflating in a full breath.
•Exhale through your nose while you relax the diaphragm and thus allow your abdomen to deflate and your navel between slightly toward your spine and abdomen, ribs and chest constrict again. Breathe a few times to prepare before Ujjayi.

•To prepare, inhale through the nose, slowly and controllably, and then exhale through the mouth. As you exhale, it directs the air exiting the back of your throat, shrinking it a bit. You must make a sound ‘ha’. Repeat several times and finally stop.

•Now inhale and exhale through the nose. Inhales slowly and stably through the nostrils. As you inhale, it shrinks a little throat and feel the air going through the back of your palate and listen to its subtle sound "ha" until your lungs reach capacity.

•Exhale gently, listening to the same sound like a whistle. Draw attention to your breathing and focus on this sound.

•Wait for a second between inhalation and exhalation. Repeat 10 times to start and gradually increase for better results.
