What type of yoga teacher will I be when I graduate?
You will be an Indaba 200 hour Yoga Teacher.
What style of yoga will be taught?
The training will honour the traditional Hatha-Raja lineage of yoga and classical philosophy, whilst taking advantage of the many modern scientifically based advancements of asana techniques and teaching methods. Hatha-Raja is the traditional style of yoga that focuses on all eight limbs of Yoga (Patanjali’s Ashtanga system). Hatha, the outward quest (mastery of the body) and Raja, the inward quest (mastery of the mind) with the ultimate goal of Self-Realisation, the merging of the ego-self (which identifies with body & mind) with the Universal Self.
