Here you can find the outline of our Online TTC300 Advanced course in 5 Elements Yoga (Yin, Somatics, Vinyasa, Pranayama, Mindfulness) syllabus.
5 Elements - International School of Yoga and Movement is a place of learning and collaboration for yoga teachers and students from all around the world. We offer courses in Europe and India.
Upon completion of this fully online yoga course, you will be eligible to register as a 500 RYT with Yoga Alliance, providing you hold a TTC200 certification already. This opens our graduates the doors to a truly global career as a yoga teacher. This unique course blends Yin and Yang yoga styles that will make your own practice more complete and enhance your career by enabling you to offer diverse yoga styles to your students.
In our school, we value personal approach. We apply an ancient Indian philosophy which says that both animate and inanimate worlds, including human mind, are formed by the interplay of the five basic elements (sans. pancha maha bhuta): earth, water, fire, air and space. Thus, the name of our school is 5 Elements.
Each of us is different and has a different constitution of these five elements. Their imbalance can lead to physical or psychological disturbances or simply hampers our ability to realize our full potential in life. One of the aims of yoga practice is to balance our own elements.
The yoga practice should be designed to balance your own elements. In this 300h TTC in 5 Elements Yoga: Yin, Somatics, Vinyasa, Pranayama, Mindfulness, you will learn the art and science of teaching each of the five methods separately and also as a part of a balanced yoga class. This knowledge is essential because an unbalanced yoga practice can disturb both mental and physiological homoeostasis in a person.
Minimal requirement to join the course: TTC200 certificate from any RYS200 school.

What distinguishes our approach to yoga?
We believe in a practice that is adapted to individual needs.
We refrain from an excessive focus on a ‘handbook’ alignment that is based on straight lines, defined angles and rigidity. We encourage adaptive and spontaneous self-adjustments which can be aided by conscious breathing.
We believe that there is no one, ideal version of any posture. Rather, asanas are templates that encourage you to explore the potential of your body, connect to your breath and expand consciousness.
The balance of flexibility and strength is the cornerstone of hatha yoga. Therefore, we do not overly emphasize stretching that places flexibility as the main goal of yoga practice.
We think that yoga props can be of great help, as long as a student is not dependent them entirely and the props don’t overly complicate the practice. We believe everyone should aim at being able to use or forgo props, at any stage of their practice.
We incorporate elements of pranayama and meditation into each yoga class. We think that a yoga practice that is purely physical misses the holistic approach that distinguishes yoga from exercise.
