Yoga Teacher Training Overview
The Kailash Tribal School of Yoga & Holistic Healing, Mcleodganj, Dharamshala; is registered with Yoga Alliance (http://yogaalliance.org). The Yoga Teacher Training Course is recognized and approved by Yoga Alliance and students will be able to register themselves as teacher with Yoga Alliance following the successful completion of the course.
We specialize in classes of smaller groups, with a maximum of 12 students per course in order to give the students more personal attention.
A yoga teacher training program (or yoga certification) is the process in which a yoga student takes a study course to become a yoga teacher. If you are just starting out in your process of becoming a yoga teacher, then you will want to register with a 200 hour yoga teacher training. A 200-hour yoga instructor training is the minimum requirement and in many ways is considered a pre-requisite course. While it is allowed for you to teach professionally once you have passed the 200-hour yoga teacher training, most in the yoga community will now agree that this is not enough and your teacher status should be viewed almost that of an intern. Once you have completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training, then you will be allowed to take a 300-hour yoga teacher training where you can learn to master the art of teaching yoga to others. Thus completed the 500-hour teacher training then you will have sufficient knowledge qualifications and experience to truly become a yoga teacher in all levels.
Embarking on a yoga teacher training course is an important step and can reap rewards for a lifetime.
My general approach is to keep classes small. This allows me to get to know all students and adjust the order of teaching the required curriculum accordingly. I teach all classes personally and encourage questions and class participation in discussions.
There are many aspects in the asana class. I teach, not only the traditional positions, but the benefits. Also the identification of individual bodies with their strengths and limitations, alternative positions to accommodate injury and disease is important. This information helps teachers be more attuned to their students and lead a well structured, confident class. Emphasis is put on listening to our bodies and act according. Of course, experience and time also make us better teachers, so everyone will lead classes and receive individual advice before the course ends.
Besides asana classes, I teach about human nature, our own included. The better we understand ourselves, the better we can make our classes work for the benefit of our students. In philosophy class we discuss how to adapt ancient teachings to the modern world. The anatomy class allows us to see the body from the inside and picture in our minds what is happening during asana class and how our living pattern affects our health, both mental and physical.
The course is a time of personal growth - the cocoon to the butterfly.

The Yoga Alliance
In the mid 1990′s two groups called Unity in Yoga and Ad Hoc Yoga Alliance were producing conferences and events around yoga. These two organizations noticed that yoga was growing in popularity but that there were no set standards for the yoga community or yoga teacher training programs. In 1999 the two groups decided to come together and form the Yoga Alliance. Their mission is to establish a set of yoga teacher, yoga studio, and yoga teacher training regulations and standards that the yoga community can adhere to (note that all yoga schools only join voluntarily and that not all schools are registered with them) These sets of standards help keep a system of checks and balances in place so that yoga teacher training schools have to abide by certain guidelines that help ensure the overall quality and integrity of yoga. This is why you may see symbols such as:
1. RYT 200/500: Registered Yoga Teacher
2. E-RYT 200/500: Experience Registered Yoga Teacher
3. RYS 200/500: Registered Yoga School
