Kalimpong - the "Land of ﬂowers"
Often referred to as the “Land of flowers”, Kalimpong is a pristine hill station located in the lap of the majestic Himalayas. It overlooks the sparkling waters of the river, Teesta and is situated in eastern Himalayan region of India. With the towering Kanchenjunga on one side and an emerald-green expanse of tea gardens on the other, Kalimpong is an idyllic location for anybody who is looking to unwind, relax and rejuvenate. Strikingly opposite to its next-door sister – Darjeeling, Kalimpong happens to be less crowded and quieter.
The first thing that will catch your eye when you are in Kalimpong are the many flowers that pockmark the vast green mountains of this surreal town. Petunias, roses, daisies, freesias, pansies and several other nameless varieties grow wild and free, full bloom to their best versions and in the brightest of colours. Kalimpong also happens to be home to orchids. You are most likely to experience this exotic flora in the rarest of colour combinations growing in abundance in places you’d least expect.
Faraway from the city life, yet conveniently accessible, Kalimpong is one of those destinations where you need not have an itinerary or a fixed plan — you can go for short hikes or simply stare at flowers — experience the joys of doing nothing. The pace of life prevalent in this lesser known hill station is motivating, it urges you to calm down, meditate and reﬂect on the many gifts that nature offers.
What Can You Expect?
Our training is realistic and doesn’t promise to make you a guru in 4 weeks time. However, as one of the leading yoga certification programs worldwide, we guide you through a course that serves as an excellent stepping stone to enter the vast profound knowledge and philosophy of yoga. An intensive 4-week program that covers various aspects of yoga fundamentals and an exploration into transforming our weaknesses into our strengths and source of power.
The course is designed in a way as to not only serve the physical needs but also to break the mental limitations of our students. Our yoga teacher training includes advance physical postures to less intensive and more restorative sessions. During all our yoga certification programs, we introduce students to the various styles of Hatha yoga and its contemporary practices such as Ashtanga yoga and multi-styled themed Vinyasa flow. We focus on accurate alignment of these styles, cues on commands, physical and spiritual awareness of dynamic yoga postures.
Classical yoga philosophy of Patanjali Yoga Sutras is intertwined throughout the course. Introduction to many aspects of ancient and contemporary meditation, Pranayama breathing techniques, Ayurveda and its relationship with yoga, scientific benefits of Sanskrit mantra chanting, yoga mudras, Kriya inner cleansing techniques and various other elements that make yoga a complete practice. You will leave the course truly open with a new understanding of yoga, your ability to relate to this world, and most importantly, to yourself.
Our syllabus is carefully tailored to provide our students with the tools needed for teaching and deepening self-practice. Technical workshops will emphasize the more demanding and advanced postures along with a breakdown of various styles and a thorough introduction and immersion into its alignment and adjustments. These workshops are held and practiced to assess the progress being done in our everyday Asana practice session. The yogic Asanas are enjoyable and interactive with an opportunity to explore the limitations and intelligence of our physical body.
“Yoga is 99 percent practice and one percent theory” – Sri Pattabhi Jois
Our course introduces teaching methods starting the second week. We provide our students with numerous opportunities to work on their stage fright, cues on commands, correct instruction, and knowledge of specific postures. At the end of each class, group feedback is given by teachers and students, pointing out their strengths and areas where they can improve. In the final week, students will design and deliver a full Vinyasa yoga class as part of their final exam, which will be guided by our teachers. We encourage creativity and imagination here. As ultimately, it will transform our students to develop fully as bright yoga teachers ready with all the tools and techniques to teach after the completion of our program.
Our yoga certification programs are specially designed to understand the student and help them nourish not only their physical ability but also their capacity to react to every situation with grace and yogic ethics instilled in them. Our course has been highly successful with most of our graduates teaching worldwide as successful yoga instructors and mentors. The course is based on the four paths of yoga, rediscovering the joys of learning and giving, following in the footsteps of our enlightened Gurus and masters.
