60-hour Tapasya Hot Yoga Continuing Ed Teacher Training


This 60-hour training will teach you the necessary skills to teach Hot Yoga classes safely, clearly and intelligently while deepening your understanding of modern, alignment-based hot yoga.

Morning sessions will generally start between 7.30 and 8.30am and afternoon session will generally finish between 4.30 and 5.30pm.

Teachers are expected to arrive on time each day and participate in the practice twice daily.

course content

Tapasya hot yoga is a set sequence of approximately 30 postures practised in a heated environment of 40*C and 40% humidity, that facilitates safe, deep stretching and a cleansing, detoxifying sweat. The practice incorporates breathing exercises and static (as opposed to flowing) postures, to cultivate balance, strength and flexibility, both physically and mentally. Following specific alignment and timing principles, you will work the entire body systematically – restoring the health of every organ, bone, joint, muscle, ligament, nerve and gland. By bringing fresh, oxygenated blood into every part of the body, this hot yoga practice rejuvenates the entire system, leaving you feeling detoxed (physically and mentally), and with a healthy glow.

The practice is informed by the teachings of Hatha and hot yoga methods, and the 8 limbs of yoga are implicitly woven into the fabric of the classes. It incorporates intelligent alignment and timing principles and a light-hearted approach while maintaining the intensity and transformational qualities of traditional hot methods. Within the context of a set series, teachers are encouraged to teach from their own unique experience allowing freedom and variations. The sequence promotes joint safety and has been assessed and endorsed by physiotherapists – making it a powerful, nurturing and accessible practice for all levels.
