Yoga Teacher Training • 200 Hours
This course does not set out to present Yoga as one particular thing, from anyone angle or based on any one particular school of thought or philosophical system. When we look back on the evolution of yoga we can see that it did not develop in a straight line, nor does it connect back to one particular person or tradition.
The development of yoga as we know it draws on many different philosophies and lineages which share key concepts such as dharma, karma, samsara, dukkha, and meditation, with almost all of them focussing on the ultimate goal of liberation (moksha) of the individual through a diverse range of practices.
They differ in their assumptions about the nature of existence as well as the specifics of the path to the ultimate liberation however the ultimate goal of personal freedom seems to be shared in common. Together, these philosophies are like rivers flowing from distant mountains contributing and coalescing to form the one ocean that is yoga.

Have a desire to begin a journey of self-enquiry and discovery?
Want to learn more about pranayama, meditation and be able to teach these practices?
Want to learn more about the philosophy and history of yoga?
Want to become a confident yoga teacher with the ability to teach creative, intelligent yoga classes that are grounded in richness of yoga philosophy?
At Ritual our goal is to offer the practice of yoga in a way that allows each student to experience yoga as an empirical or experiential science, free from the limitations of dogma. That being said, Yoga has an important chronological and cultural history that is rich with profound metaphors along with beautiful models and concepts that aim to explain experiences that aren't always able to be articulated in a way that does justice to a felt experience. Hence, we will explore yoga through the prism of a variety of lineages and schools of thought to have a rich and dynamic understanding of yoga in the context of its history and philosophical foundations.
It is from this point that we will apply yoga’s profound yet surprisingly simple philosophy and accompanying practices, test them in the context of our own life and analyse the results. True to the science of Yoga, you are not encouraged to believe in anything instead you are invited to use the practices to explore the terrain of your existence.
