200 Hr.Yoga Deep Teacher Training Course Overview
Deep Physio Yoga is a healing-based therapeutic technique & workout that is based on Proper Physio alignment & anatomical awareness & education. The aim of the training is to restore balanced & correct posture to the body through neutral positioning of the limbs from feet, knees, pelvis, spine, ribcage & skull. According to modern studies, a balanced posture allows the human body to develop strength & stamina, whilst healing faster & more efficiently.
We offer a breath-based yoga teacher training, which means your breath will be your guide towards the posture that is right for you. An important concept to understand is the importance of diaphragm-breathing. The diaphragm is a muscle in the abdominal cavity that contracts during inhalation. When posture is imbalanced, the rib cage & spine are not in proper alignment, therefore not allowing them to use the proper muscles during breathing, which leads to other muscles being overused & strained. This is one of the physiological reasons of muscle stress injury.
Besides that, the yoga sutras state that an undeveloped & poor breathing pattern is one of the main reasons of numerous psychological problems. Therefore, along with the proper poses & their counter poses, specific pranayama are taught to bring the body into perfect equilibrium.
Postural adjustment through yoga asana is a traditional & unique scientific way. Yoga teachers & therapists with knowledge of this specific technique can help a practitioner use their body in a more balanced & correct way in their yoga practice as well as daily life.
Students will be taught the importance of proper warming up to prevent injuries. The Pawanmuktasana series, which comprises of 15 asanas will be taught to open up the hips, knees & joints, & allow blood flow to the muscles, nerves & inner glands.
Students will be taught the proper use of props like blocks, blankets, chairs, bolsters etc. to reap the full benefits of asana. The usage of props is essential in promoting healing & recovery from injuries, whilst preventing mis-alignment in the body.
