During your 200-Hour MSYI experience, you will be exposed to various styles of asana: Power Yoga (Vinyasa or Flow); Hatha Yoga (Gentle Yoga); Yin Yoga (slow-paced, intense, style of yoga geared to open deep tissue); and Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep meditation). The science of Yoga Nidra suggest a 45 minute practice of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 4-6 hours of deep sleep.
During your 200 Hour program you will learn how to effectively teach Power yoga and Hatha. At MSYI, we believe no one style of yoga or a single practice is 100% sustainable. We all go through different periods in our lives within our physical bodies, our mental, emotional, and spiritual states, our energy, and how much new knowledge we are capable of taking on. This is why, at MSYI, we honour many different styles of yoga and other practices anchored in the tradition and the roots of yoga, including Yoga History & Philosophy, Critical Alignment Theory, Functional Anatomy, and Modern Nutrition, to name a few. MSYI's Core Curriculum can be viewed here.
Just as we recognize that no single practice is 100% sustainable, we also believe that no single training program works for all students. This is why we offer a number of Programs around the world, all designed to kickstart your yoga teaching career, deepen your personal practice, or advance your existing knowledge. To become a Yoga Instructor, it is not required you acquire all 200 Hours at one time, or in one Training. All of our courses will count to your teacher accreditation, will not expire, and every hour will simply add to your educational portfolio.
